Dear Miss Tanya Burr,

These are juicy, glossy, moisturising, and oozes elegance. I love them, all of them. Here’s a little token of appreciation of how much I love these lip glosses. A humble review and swatch of the shades that I now own. Perhaps someday I get to meet you. You are simply adorable. The lip glosses are adorable.

Lush goes EGG-static over EASTER-tastic Collection 2014

This Easter, Lush brings you a super cute, generous collection ranging from bunnies, eggs to carrots and all that jazz! I’m actually super keen to check it out when it is launched in store and online nationwide on April 3rd. Let’s get on to it shall we?

First, we have Golden Egg bath melt ballistic ($6.50)


This is a brand new invention – an egg shaped bath bomb coated in bath melt mixture. Its outer layer dissolves first when you first place it in the water. It sinks to the bottom of the bathtub at first, then pops to the surface as the fizzing centre is revealed. The outer bath melt mix is made using Colombian Peace Village cocoa butter and olive oil from permaculture project in Palestine. The scent is of the Honey I Washed the Kids. Definitely inspired by the chocolate cream eggs. Yum!

Keep reading to find out more in store this April!

Review | Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer SC-4

2014-02-18 11.45.21

Today I thought I would share with you my little secret weapon for the past couple of months ever since it landed on to my lap. I have not been able to put it down since, and carry it with me everywhere for those “just in case” moments. I really had to give it the full blown test drive, how could I not. It is the two-toned concealer by Laura Mercier.

Weleda March/April Promotion

Weleda is having a promotion this March/April months with 25% off the One-Step Cleanser & Toner.

It is an easy step to remove face makeup before washing your face. This is what I am using it for, rather than a sole cleanser. I prefer to double cleanse and wash my face after wearing makeup throughout the day.

This contains witch hazel which is an overall clarifying toner for the skin. However it may be drying if you have dry skin.

The scent is quite strong and I could straight away tell it’s an astringent type. My skin is not a huge fan of it generally, so take note. Hence why I avoid the eyes straight away when using this. It does leave the skin feeling clean and it works alright in the areas I am most oily (on nose especially). Although I think it still does not cleanse as thorough as some other facial makeup remover cleansers, due to the fact I do test this when using foundation etc.

It is milky look to it but very watery, so this is not one to massage into the skin like cleansing lotions or creams. It is not as gentle, unfortunately, as I could feel some kind of either menthol or that sort of feel to it. I feel that this would work amazingly for teenagers and early university days rather than at my age now and onwards.

On another note, Weleda is a lovely company that has been around way way longer than my mother or my grandmother have been around! There’s gotta be something there…

You can find Weleda at David Jones, and selected health food shops.

Available now

Have you tried any Weleda product? Which is your favourite? Any that is a must try?

Happy Monday~
Let’s chat… ‘tis a new week, a new month, and it’s officially Autumn here in Australia. How’s everyone doing?
This post is slightly on the personal side, which I don’t normally dwell into, as a blog post, you know it. Although I feel, I may want to let this out a little, now, to get it off my chest. I want to acknowledge some things. It is a part of me, and for the longest time I am in constant battle with myself, with my own self. Perhaps you’ll get to know me a little better this way.

Good Afternoon FOTD with “Tanya Burr” Afternoon Tea

Who here does not know Tanya Burr? Well, now you will just have to know her. She is this cute, bubbly, inspirational, elegant lady from Norwich, one of my favourite YouTuber, a makeup artist, and has recently launched her own makeup collection consisting of lipglosses and nail polishes. Girl crush alert!!

The story is… that… unfortunately nail polishes cannot be shipped to Australia so we Aussies would have to do with just experiencing her lip glosses. Now, now, who here ever remember when was the last time I speak or even review or praise a lip gloss? Uhm, when was that… almost… never? Yeah, you could say that. However, this lip gloss has impressed me so so so much that it is worth a mention… while I am still waiting for a few more shades to arrive! Then… I shall do a swatch and full review of the shades I have. What say you? A YES!? YYessshhh, indeed!
