The last time I did one of these posts was way back when I first started my little blog and had a fully functional computer. That feels like ages ago! A few months and 2 computers later, I have a new nailpolish of the week just for you.

Today's nail polish was an impulse buy from my local Priceline on the day I discovered that they stocked Orly. I never usually buy higher end nail polish so I thought I might get this one as it was on sale for $5.00 and the colour was oh-so-lovely!

The Senna Cosmetics triple lips is a lip gloss product which I purchased on sale when I was in America a few months back. The thing that caught my eye about this product is the beautiful colour - it is a bright coral pink that is just so vibrant.

Colour: Triple Pink

The other week I went to a formal function and wore my favorite Kookai maxi dress. This is the same dress on which I made a fashion video on my YouTube channel a while ago and since I don't get to wear it very often I thought I would do a quick blog post on it. 

One down side about beautiful formal dresses is that it is hard to get a lot of wear out of them because once your friends have seen it, you can't really wear it again on the next special occasion - that is unless the function is with a different group of people, then you can easily wear the same dress again.

I hope to have a lot more fashion videos and blog posts so stay tuned.

Last week when I was patiently waiting for my hairdresser to do my hair, I was reading an old edition of the Cleo magazine which had an interesting article in it about a girl who couldn't go a day without a full face of makeup. So what the Cleo team did was challenge her to go out every Monday for 4 weeks without a trace of makeup. The article talked about the girl's struggle to stick to the challenge and the pressure of society for us to appear flawless.

This story got me thinking about whether I would be able to go to work and out on a date without any makeup. I remember when I was 14 years old and I had to build up the confidence to wear blush to school and now I can't go a day without applying it. So I decided to try the bare face challenge.

A couple of months ago I was looking for a good quality eye cream and while browsing at Priceline one day I came across the Palmers Cocoa Butter Line Smoothing Eye Cream. Since it only cost $12.95, I thought I would give it a try and see how it works.

Now that I am in my mid twenties, I have become more and more concerned about the appearance of my under eye area so I was looking for a product which would improve the appearance of the fine lines and be hydrating at the same time.

Today I thought I would talk about my favorite hand cream at the moment - the Palmers Cocoa Butter concentrated cream. This product is amazing and does wonders for my dry hands during the winter months.

Ever since the Aussie dollar hit par with the American dollar, I started wanting products sold overseas because for the first time they were actually affordable. Not only that but I discovered that the prices in America are reasonable, much more so than at home. I realised that for the price of one Dior product at David Jones, I could buy two and have a bit of spare change if I bought it from Sephora. That was just the beginning.

The problem for us foreigners wanting to buy from Sephora in America is that Sephora will not ship internationally nor will they accept foreign credit cards or even PayPal. After a bit of research, I discovered that there are a many mail forwarding services out there that can deal with this issue, so then came the hard task of choosing which one to go with when making my purchase.

Today I thought I would do a quick review of one of my favorite hair products - the Moroccan Oil Restorative Hair Mask. This hair mask not only smells great but also does wonders for dry damaged hair.

I am so thrilled to be back with a new blog post! If you guys follow me on twitter, you probably already know all about the computer troubles I have been having over the past few months. Luckily I have managed to get a replacement laptop after a lot of arguing with Dick Smith and I finally have a (hopefully!) non faulty and working laptop.
