Hawaii Haul: Victoria’s Secret Beauty

Ah, Victoria’s Secret! If they ever open a store here I have every intention of getting a weekend job there just so I could see all the amazing things they have on offer – I am OBSESSED! Besides picking up the usual clothing/bikinis/underwear I stocked up on some of their fragrance and bath/body products. I’ve liked their products for years now but their website will not ship any of the fragrances and body products to Australia sadly. Love Spell Travel Kit with Shower Gel,  ...

Nail of the Day – Revlon Raspberry Rapture

This was a polish I picked up on our very last night in Hawaii when I wanted to paint my nails but realised I had packed all my other polishes away! It reminds me quite a bit of the Sportsgirl Nail Colour in Lipstick which was a favourite for years and I thought itwould be a bright, happy colour to remind me of my holiday on the trip home. I didn’t realise until I had already bought it but it is one of the Revlon scented polishes. The idea of these wasn’t really appealing to me  ...

Hawaii Haul: Nail Polishes

Of course while I was away I made sure I picked up every OPI that ever existed! Well, OK, not quite but I did get quite a few polishes that had been on my wishlist for a while… OPI The Colour of Minnie and OPI I’m All EarsUS$6.59 (Australian retail is $19.95) I was so excited to see the colours brought out as part of the OPI Minnie Mouse Collection. I was tempted to get them all but I limited myself to two. They look very similar in the photograph but actually are different in  ...

November Lust Have It

I was very happy when I recieved this month’s Lust Have It pack, this time there were some great full sized products and they really stepped it up since their last box which was a little disappointing. They’ve also said this will be the last month they will be including the coloured cosmetic bags but have something new in store for December so it will be interesting to see where they go next with their packaging. Here’s what was included: Face of Australia Purifying  ...

November Bellabox

I can’t believe we’re nearly at the end of November – scary that Christmas is so close now! My Bellabox finally arrived (is it strange that I know what time of the month it is by when my beauty boxes arrive???) and once again I was pretty happy with what was included. Bloom Liquid Eyeliner in Lucky StarThis Bellabox gave me a really good variety of skincare/nail/cosmetic items and my only complaint would be that I already have one of these glitter eyeliners from an earlier  ...

Hawaii Haul: Sephora

Of course I had to make a stop (yeah, ok… so it may have been several stops… ) by Sephora while I was away to look at the fantastic products we don’t have on offer to us here in Australia. The sales assistants at Sephora were so helpful and I was given so many freebies and samples to try out too – brilliant! Philosophy Purity Cleanser 8ozUS20 (Australian retail is $30)My skin was really playing up when I arrived at the start of my trip and I had seen this raved about  ...

Hawaii Haul: Bath & Body Works

I was so excited to see there was now a Bath and Body Works store open in Hawaii. When I was last here 2 years ago there wasn’t one so of course it was on my list of shops to head to, I just wish we had one here! I wanted to buy some of their candles as I have heard so much about them but in the end I decided they were just too heavy and I didn’t want to use up my baggage allowance on candles when I could pack lots of other things instead. I spent a good hour in Bath and Body  ...

Hawaii Haul: MAC

Finally I’m showing you all the fun things I picked up while I was away! Right at the top of my list of stores to hit up was MAC. The prices in the US are crazy cheap compared to what we pay in Australia so it was time to stock up! Studio Fix Fluid in NC25 x3  USD$27 (Australian retail is $49)  I tried swapping from NW25 to NC25 while I was there as I had been noticing my skin was looking a tad orange towards the end of the day when I had been wearing this foundation. I love  ...

What I took to Hawaii – Carry On

As you may have already worked out, I like to be super organised when I travel and I’ve now got what I take in my carry on pretty much down pat. I like to have a small supply of my skincare and makeup as I find my skin seems to suffer terribly when I fly (getting dehydrated and breaking out) and being well prepared minimises this. Also, I’m always a bit paranoid about my luggage getting lost. So my logic is if that were ever to happen I would at least have a small number of  ...
