How I Relax

LifeStyle, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I thought on today’s post I would do a little post about how I relax at home either after a long & stressful day at work or if I am just at home & want to unwind & relax for an hour or so.

I love having baths either a hot or cold one depending on the weather I just find them so relaxing regardless of the temperature & they really help me to unwind & feel calm if I have been a little stressed.

To really enjoy my bath I always need the below items;

Bath Bomb

I of course cant go past Lush’s bath bombs. I always just pick one from my little bath bomb collection, for this post & my latest bath I chose one of the bath bombs I got for Christmas which I cant remember the name of as it came in a little gift box but it was a pretty yellow colour with a blue colour on the inside & turned the bath a nice green colour when fully dissolved.

IMG_2983   IMG_2985


Even if it’s 40 degrees outside I love lighting a candle or two & then I turn of the lights to really enjoy it & to also shut off everything else going on.



Although using Lush bath bombs the bath is always left smelling amazing I also like to add some essence to an oil burner to really get the whole bathroom smelling amazing.

For this bath I used a oil I was gifted from a friend at work for Christmas.


What’s more relaxing than some wonderful music playing in the background. I have a little bath mix on my Spotify that I use to really relax & unwind.

I include only soft music & acoustic covers to really keep everything calm & relaxing, you can’t really relax listening to

If you don’t have your own playlist there are lots on Spotify that you can use/listen to instead.

Depending on how my skin is feeling I will sometimes also do a face mask, I have been recently using the mask of magnaminty from Lush which I love.

So above is how I relax & unwind after a long day or just if need or want to have some me time this is what I tend to do.

To celebrate hitting over 1000 subscribers on Twitter, I thought I would do a giveaway for one lucky follower to win a box with all of my fav bath relaxation products so be sure to keep an eye out for that across my social media.

Let me know in the comments below how you relax.

Until next time

Blogger Card Swap Part Two

LifeStyle, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I am back with Part 2 of my Blogger Card Swap & to be honest I am kind of sad about it as its my last Christmas related post.


Can you believe Christmas has already been & gone? I certainly cant I would love to rewind the time & do it all again.

Since my last post I have been receiving a card or two everyday which has been so exciting.

I feel my first Blogger Card Swap was a success, I had such a great time organising the cards, writing them, posting them out & receiving them back from the lovely ladies that participated, I hope they also enjoyed  it as much as I did.

It was a great way for me who is new to blogging & not an overly confident person when approaching new people to chat & mingle with different people from different parts of the world.

I would strongly suggest anyone new to the blogging community or anyone just wanting to make some more friends to do a card swap or if you’re shy to put yourself out there you can always just search the hashtag #cardswap or #cardexchange on Twitter to find other bloggers who are organising a card swap & join in.

I will definitely do another card swap this coming Christmas so keep an eye out for that later on in the year as I would love to add some new bloggers to the list.

For now I want to give a little shout out to the below lovely ladies for participating in the card swap & for the lovely & unique cards they each sent me, I will cherish these cards forever.

Bexa – @hellobexa

Jess – @jessxclare

Britt – @AlternativelySpeaking

Joanie & Sazzy – @TheCozyDen

Lena – @Lenadeexo

Michelle – @chelle_muablog

Rachel – @Wonderingwhywp

Charissa – @misscharissa

Allison – @AllyvKat

Mika – @Belleprincesstx

Katie – @henryfamilypc

Meagan – @Meaagan_Lambert

Please show these lovely ladies some love & give them a follow.

Have you done a card swap before? Did you enjoy it?

Until next time

December Bellabox Review 2017

Beauty, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I am back with my last Bellabox review for the year ( disregard that I have posted this on the second day of 2018 haha)

How beautiful is this month’s box, red & white. Love the Christmas theme to this months box.


Stylondon/ Eyeshadow Palette

77447777   IMG_2965

This was the one item I was looking forward to in this months box as I am loving eyeshadow palettes at the moment & the colours look amazing.

I love the colours on the packaging but the packaging itself feels really cheap.

The colours itself are actually really good given how cheap the palette is.

You can purchase this palette from Stylondon for $17.00

John Frieda/Beach Blonde Cool Dip Purifying Conditioner


So just like the Shampoo that I received last month I haven’t tried this before but will definitely being doing a review on both the shampoo & conditioner soon.

You can pick the conditioner up from Woolworths, Coles, Chemist Warehouse & Priceline for $15.99 for 295ml

Murad/ Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence


This product I have never heard of before from the packaging it says it is silky, weightless moisture enhancing treatment optimizes skin’s capacity to retain hydration, leaving it soft, plump & youthful.

The product itself smells a little like sunscreen & feels quite nice on the skin.

This product retails for $139 for 30ml which is alot of money for a moisturiser & probably not something I would buy myself unless I knew it was amazing as its hard to really grasp that with only 5ml to work with.

You can purchase this product from Murad directly via their website

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Body Lotion









I was so excited when I seen this product, I love Palmer’s products & this lotion is no different.

That smell of coconuts YUM, within seconds of using it on my hand it feels amazing & so soft & hydrated.

Palmer’s products are definitely products that I would recommend to anyone as they have never let me down & are so affordable.

You can purchase this product from Priceline & Chemist Warehouse for $7.39 for 250ml

Gariner Rescue Mask


I feel like I have said this a million times but I love masks & now that I am on holidays there isn’t anything better then a nice bath & a face mask so I am eager to try this product out.

This whole Matcha thing seems to be taking over the world at the moment & too be honest I haven’t tried any Matcha products but it seems to be everywhere in drinks, food, face masks.

This product notes that it will purify your skin & leave it refreshed, mattifed and clean.

You can purchase this product from Priceline or My Chemist for $3.95 for 8ml

So thats all the products from this months Bellabox what product would you like to try if you got the chance? Or have you got into this whole Matcha craze, whats your thoughts?

Hope you like this post.

Until next time

Boxing Day Haul 2017

Christmas, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I am back with a post regarding my recent purchases on Boxing Day.

As you may remember from my Christmas Traditions tag during Blogmas I mentioned that each year on Boxing Day my sister & I go shopping to the local shopping centers or Malls to pick up some bargains.

I set my alarm for 3.50am, 4am & 4.10am as I live an hour away from my sister who lives really close to the shops & I wanted to put some make up on and also have a shower I needed to get up so early which I really struggled with as much so that I didn’t end up having a shower & my makeup look was a barely there makeup look haha.
The traffic was so minimal so it only took me about 40 minutes or so to get to my mums house & then my sister & I were off to get to the first shopping center before it opened at 7am.

The first store we went into was Priceline as they were having a buy one get one free for selected brands so with my voucher I picked up the Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki brush as I think from memory it was 20% off so it only cost $29.99, Models Own was included in the 2 for 1 deal so I picked up another two of their palettes, Vintage Rose & Colour Chrome for $32.95 so I will definitely do a review of them along with their Barely There palette.


We then went into Lush & they had 50% of their boxes so I got the Christmas Candy Box which was reduced to $19.97 & I also picked up Snow Fairy Body Conditioner for $16.48 for 225g which was also 50% off


I then picked up these lovely black sandal/wedges from Myer for $29.97 (original price $59.95) I thought these shoes would be good for work or just to wear when going out somewhere nice


With my Mecca Vouchers I picked up the Too Faced Born this Way concealer in the shade very fair for $40, the Urban Decay Oil Control Makeup Spray for $49 & I picked up my first Mac foundation in the shade NC15 for $50.

Mecca was also having a free give away if you spent over $85 dollars so for free I got the NARS long wear eyeliner 3g & hourglass primer 4ml.

I then from City Chic picked up two pairs for underwear for $12.50 each & this lace black skirt for work which was reduced to $50 dollars which I really love.


We then went to Kmart & picked up this off the shoulder top for $10 dollars


I also picked up this candle from one of those stores thats in the middle of the shopping center, its by the company HartCo in the scent Strawberry Mascarpone soy candle. How beautiful is the packaging & the candle smells amazing, I got the 400g candle for $25 dollars reduced from nearly $40 (from memory)


From Sephora I finally got my hands on a Fenty Beauty product, they didn’t have my shade available in the foundation so I just picked up the re touch primer in soft matte which was $46 dollars


The last item I picked up was with the Pandora voucher that my partner got me & I got the tiara ring which I believe was $69 dollars


So that completes my Boxing Day Haul for 2017, did you join in on the boxing day sales & if you did what was your favourite item you purchased?

Until next time

Christmas Day 2017 & What I got

Christmas, Uncategorized
Hey Lovelies,
Can you believe Christmas has already been and gone, its amazing how we plan and plan & spend so much money on one day all for it to be over within an instant.
I thought I would do a little post about What I got for Christmas/ what we did Christmas day.
Christmas Day
We went to my Nana’s house at about 11.30 to help her set up & get everything ready while we waited for my mum to finish work at 1pm which felt like it took forever haha. Does anyone else feel like a kid again when Christmas comes around?
Once mum arrived, we were finally able to open presents which is one of my favourite parts of the day, I love seeing the reactions on my families faces when they each get their presents either from me or someone else in the family & of course I love opening presents for myself (who doesn’t)
This year I got some amazing presents so I will list them below with who I received them from
Mum – My mum got this sparkly silver ring from Pandora, a pair of sketchers for work (as I previously stole hers of her because they are so comfy whoops) & she also very generously gave me $300 to go towards my boxing day shopping
Nana & Uncle – My nan & my uncle gave me a joint gift of $120 dollars to go towards my boxing day shopping (they find it easier to just do this instead of buying me & my sister things now that we are older)
My Sister –  So because its just us two my sister Taylor & I also go a little crazy on each other each year so this year Taylor gave me, Too Faced Best of 2018 kit (amazing!!). lush bath bombs, a Pandora ring, $50 mecca voucher & she also got us both tickets to go see one of our fav football players who is doing a few shows about his life etc which I cannot wait for.

My Partner –  My partner got me $50 mecca voucher, $50 Pandora voucher, $100 Priceline voucher, some body butters & lush bath bombs

  5454 hbb  44
Do I have the best family or what?
After presents because we were all starving we got lunch all set up as by this stage it was almost 2pm.
Our family is very into seafood & cold meats for Christmas lunch but since my partner has come along & his Christmas traditions from him growing up was roast pork & hot food we have also incorporated that to our Christmas lunch.
So here is a photo of what was on offer, Roast Pork, Roast potatoes & roast pumpkin, ham, chicken, prawns, potato salad, Greek salad, my mums odd rice salad, spinach cob, bread rolls & crunchy Asian salad so for only 6 people there was a lot of food (YUM)
All the food was amazing I had a food coma for most of the afternoon, we then played Cards against Humanity & my nan who had never played before kept getting all the inappropriate cards which made is so much fun to play.
After a few games of that, we then decided to have some dessert & watch the movie IT which I was not looking forward to as I am the only one in my family who hates horror movies with a passion.
Unfortunately as the bad blogger that I am, I forgot to take a photo of the desserts before we all dove into them but there was a bread & butter pudding that I made, my sister made this chocolate clinkers slice,  a pavlova, plum pudding & fresh fruit with cream.
Which all looked & tasted amazing.
After we finished IT & I had screamed the house down about 30 times during the movie (no word of a lie) it was about 7.30pm & my partner & I decided we better head home as I had to be up early the next day to go shopping with my sister as we live about an hour away from my mum & my nan.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, what did you get for Christmas?
Until next time,

Blogger Christmas Card Swap – Part 1

Christmas, LifeStyle, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I thought what a better day to post a post about my recent card swap with some lovely bloggers from all over the world.

I had never done a card swap before but saw some other bloggers were doing it & thought it would a great way to mingle with different bloggers in different countries.

There was 12 bloggers within the card swap group & also one of the blogger groups I am apart of were also sending out cards, so I haven’t received all of them as of yet.

It was so exciting to receive each of the cards that I have received so far, I love receiving mail especially when its not a bill 🙂

So a massive shout out to the following lovely ladies whose cards I have received & I will do another post once all the cards have been received.

Please give these ladies some love & I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

I will post part 2 of my Blogger Christmas Card Swap once the rest of the cards have been received.

Until next time

Bellabox Review – November Box

Beauty, LifeStyle, Opinion, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

I am back to review this month’s (November) Bellabox, I know were almost at the end of December but better later then never.

The first item I saw was this John Frieda Beach Blonde cool dip purifying Shampoo. I have heard of John Frieda products before but to be honest I don’t think I have ever used them before.

The information about the product is for blondes & brunettes who love effortlessly beach worthy hair. The minty cool shampoo quenches thirsty tresses with an invigorating seaweed formula allowing for ultimate ocean fresh styling.

I am interested to try this product & think I will do a review of these products as I also had a sneak peak at the December box where I also got this in the conditioner so look out for that review.

You can pick this shampoo up from Woolworths, Coles, Priceline & Chemist Warehouse for $15.99 for a 295ml bottle.


Manna Kadar Glo Illuminator

The next product was this Illuminator from Manna Kadar, I love the packaging on this product, the pink with the gold & white writing is really nice. I have only ever used powered highlighters so I am eager to give this a try & review it for you.

You can purchase this Illuminator from Manna Kadar directly for $29 dollars for 20ml


Vitamasque Sheet Mask

The next product I seen was a sheet mask & i really loved the packaging for this product as well. It says its a Korean face mask made with extracts of Manuka Honey which will nourish your skin.

As you all know I love masks of any kind so I am excited to try this out & its so cheap so I am hoping its a good product that I can stock up on.

You can purchase this product from Priceline for $5.99 for one mask


Olive Oil Skincare Company / Naturally Nourished Soap

I think this months Bellabox has had the nicest packaging for the products provided, this is another item that I just love the packaging & think it really suits the product.

I tend to use body wash a lot more then I really use soaps but I love having a nice soap in the bathroom to use or just smell.

This soap smells amazing you can definitely smell the olive oil in the product,it mentions that this product is made from all natural ingredients & is hand crafted and rested for 12 weeks.

You can purchase this product from Priceline or Olive Oil Skincare directly for $8.99 for 100g

Nutrimetics Ultra Care +Moisturising System

This little 2ml product was a bonus sample that was added into this months box. The product states that it binds continous hydration to the skin and prevents moisture loss, smoothing the skins complexion keeping to looking soft and fresh with long lasting moisture.

I tried the sample provided & it did make my skin feel quite cool & my skin does feel nice to touch but I couldn’t really get a good idea if it would work for but I don’t think I would purchase this product as its quite expensive at $68 dollars for 30ml.

You can purchase this product from the Nutrimetics website directly


Estee Lauder / Modern Muse

The last product was this 1.5ml sample of the ‘November scent of the Month’ Estee Lauder’s Modern Muse.

Looking at the photo of the bottle pictured on the packaging it looks very elegant & a classy fragrance.

I really like the sample as it has a little sprayer on it which I much prefer as opposed to other fragrance samples were you have to lift the lid and dab it on as I always end up spilling it everywhere.

The scent itself is actually really nice, very fruity & not too overpowering, its definitely a fragrance I would wear.

You can purchase the perfume from Myer, David Jones, selected pharmacies & from Estee Lauder directly for $98 dollars for a 30ml bottle.


Thats all the products I received in this month’s Bellabox, what product do you most like the look of? Or do you already have one or more of these products?

Until next time

The Boulevard Christmas Lights

Christmas, LifeStyle, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I am back with a little post about our recent trip to The Boulevard in a suburb called Ivanhoe to see some Christmas Lights with friends.

Every year this street is lit up with amazing houses decorated up to the nines with Christmas decorations & light displays.

If you love Christmas & live in Melbourne it’s definitely something you need to cross off your bucket list.

The Boulevard lights has been happening every year since the 1950’s & runs between the 16th to 24th December from 8.30pm to 11.30pm each night.

There is BBQs, drinks & entertainment all from local community groups & people selling glow sticks.

I remember going to see the lights when I was a kid & it was always so amazing & beautiful to see the length these residents go to, to make others happy & spread the Christmas spirit.

I will admit this year being the first time I had been in years I was a little disappointed as there were quite a few houses that didn’t participate although it was still a really good & its free so cant complain.

Below are some of the photos that I took whilst we were there

After we finished there we also checked out a house in a suburb not too far from our house that also lights up their house which was amazing & they raise money to go towards  the Good Friday Appeal

Of course to end the night we treated ourselves to some Christmas themed donuts from Krispy Kremes.


Hope you liked this post, until next time
