Nail of the Day – OPI I’m All Ears (from the Minnie Mouse Collection)

I picked up a few colours from this collection when I was in Hawaii last October and haven’t tried them out until now. When I applied the first coat I was quite disappointed – it seemed to go on very sheer and I was thinking I was going to have to apply about five coats in order to get a decent coverage! However, the second coat seemed to go on much better. I have found this before with other polishes where the initial coat seems to have a bit of trouble sticking to the nail and  ...

Beautorium Haul

I’ve been meaning to post this for a few weeks now but once again Beautyheaven had their quarterly Beautorium and I decided to jump on and use up some of my points. I had passed up the last one as there wasn’t really anything I wanted and was working on building up my points collection again but this time I decided to pick up some beauty goodies! I liked the way they have now split up the categories over the week (makeup one day, haircare another etc) as it seemed to spread out  ...

March Lust Have It

When this arrived on my doorstep last week I was very excited to see what it would hold – Lust Have It had sent an email to subscribers the week before announcing they were adding new brands and would be increasing their price to $19.95 a month. This didn’t bother me too much as I will still be getting it for $14.95 for another few months as an existing subscriber but I was very interested to see what these “new brands” were and whether the new boxes would be even  ...

March Bellabox

I was pleasantly surprised when my Bellabox arrived a little earlier than usual this month! However I just didn’t feel it was as great value for money this time around – there were no products that really excited me sadly… Here’s what was included: Yes to Carrots C Me Shine Lip Gloss in Flirty PinkThis was full sized and while lip gloss is the one thing that always grabs my attention I just feel like it’s a fairly ho-hum colour this time around… Designer  ...

February Empties

Just like that the shortest month of the year is over! What makes me sad is it means we’re saying goodbye to Summer officially (still have my fingers crossed for some more hot days in March though)! Somehow I managed to finish up a huge amount of products in the last 28 days: Garnier Fructis Fortifying ShampooI made it a bit of a mission to use up as many sample sachets as I could this month as they seem to breed in my bathroom drawers! Kerastase Nectar ThermiqueI thought I had used  ...

Lust Have It Summer Eco Box

After seeing a few blog posts of this new addition from Lust Have It, I decided to get on board. I’m a big fan of natural and organic products and this seemed right up my alley! It is a bit more expensive at $29.95 but only comes out every three months so I didn’t think that was too bad (averages out to $10 a month). It’s even better value than the monthly Lust Have It boxes and since a few of the boxes I was subscribed to have folded I decided to subscribe. I was quite  ...

Nail of the Day – Essie Fiji

This was a pretty shade I picked up when I was in Hawaii last year and I thought it was about time I gave it a go. It was a colour I had heard so many beauty gurus rave about so I had to grab it for myself. It has a lovely creme finish and has lasted very well on my nails without chipping. The colour is even prettier on my nails than it looked in the bottle, my only gripe was that it seemed a bit thin and took three coats to get a fully even, opaque look. Have you tried this colour? Hope  ...
