Not much has changed since my last blog post about my search for the perfect self tanner. This week I am doing a review on a product made by one of my favorite brands, Le Tan. I am a big fan of some of the Le Tan self tanning products because they usually give me great results. So when I saw the Original Tanning Cream by Le Tan I had to give it  a go. 

The Original Tanning Cream claims to give you the perfect natural bronze tan which is streak free and develops in 4 hours. Unfortunately, this product didn't really live up to my expectations for three reasons.

This summer I have been experimenting with a lot of fake tan products trying to find one that will give me the most natural looking tan possible. While I am still searching for the perfect fake tan product, I thought I would share with you my thoughts about one which I have been using lately.

My most recent experiment has been with using the Goddess Bronze by Naked Tan.

This week I have gone for a more neutral coloured nail polish. For some reason I feel that this is kind of a serious colour especially compared to last week's polish.

The colour I have been wearing is called 310 Slick Slate and it is from the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri fast drying nail color collection. I think it is quite a pretty dirty brown colour.

It seems like every week I have unintentionally been purchasing a new nail polish and its mainly because I cannot resist a bargain. I picked up this week's nail polish the other day when my local Target had a sale for Australis cosmetics and a whole load of products were selling for $2.99.

The colour I purchased is called Aqua and it is a beautiful bright blue in a matte finish (and by matte I mean that it has no shimmer rather than the nail polish not having a shiny finish).

Today I thought I would share with you my favorite nail hardener. Ever since I had my acrylic nails removed a couple of months ago, my nails have been so weak and brittle. It has taken so long for my nails to recover but I have found that the 'Sally Hansen - Advanced Hard as Nails with Nylon and Retinol' has helped them a lot.

I went to a Hawaiian themed party recently so I took advantage of the opportunity to create a bright playful look. Here is a video tutorial showing you step by step how to recreate this fun look.

I received the December Glossybox at the end of last week and I have been very impressed with it. Glossybox outdid themselves in the December box by providing 3 full sized products which makes it fantastic value for money!

Here is a video review and pictures below

At the end of last year my nail polish collection was looking rather dry so I threw out a whole lot of nail polishes and have started slowly building up my collection again.

I like to change my nail polish quite often so I am hoping to do a quick post every week about the new nail polish colour which I am wearing. Hope you enjoy my very first nail polish review!

I purchased this Nivea sunscreen while on holiday in Europe earlier this year and since we are currently right in the middle of summer in Australia, I have finally had an opportunity to try this product out properly. 

This is a SPF 30+ sunscreen which contains UVA and UVB filters and it is water resistant. Although these are great features of a quality sunscreen, they are not the reason that I bought it. I bought the sunscreen because it claims that it 'supports skin's natural tanning' so you can get a tan while being protected at the same time. I am naturally very pasty so I thought that this would be the perfect product for me simply because I can never tan while wearing a conventional sunscreen.

I have wanted this perfume ever since I first tried it so when I received it as a Christmas present from my boyfriend I was delighted. This perfume has a beautifully fresh floral fragrance which is exactly what I love to wear during the warmer months. This perfume has a floral base with a hint of citrus.

I have created this blog to take you on my journey as a beauty and fashion lover.  After following many amazing blogs I have been inspired to finally create one of my own. This is something that I have wanted to do for a while now but have never felt ready to commit to it simply because it takes a lot of time and effort to keep on top of my YouTube channel.  I know that I have a lot more to offer so this blog will complement my YouTube channel. On this blog I will share my thoughts, feelings and creativity with you about all things beautiful.  I hope you enjoy coming on this journey with me and if you have a blog feel free to write me a comment and I will be happy to check it out and follow.
