Addicted to Lip Balm

Once upon a time there was a great Australian online store selling all the best brands of lip balm a girl could ever dream of.

It is now closed😦

I did manage to pick up a pack of 29 lip balms (mostly stocking fillers/Christmas gifts) on sale before they closed down.

p.s. this little package smelt like a slice of heaven!

Have you ever ordered lip balm/gloss online?
Did you use A2LB?
Didn’t you think they had super customer service skills too?

New favourite lip gloss

Hi All,

When I said I’ve been busy lately, I was not kidding! There have been birthdays, more birthdays, and even more birthdays, plus work and all the usual life stuff.

Back to the birthdays, I was totally spoilt this year with awesome gifts from friends and family.

One of the great gifts was a lip plumping lipgloss from Soap & Glory with the funny name: sexymotherpucker!

I honetsly do not think it makes my lips any bigger, but I dont mind the tingling sensation (its a bit like the blistex medicated balm) and the scent is close to the Palmers Cocoa Butter Range.

It also helps that I have received compliments from different ladies at work every day in the last week, winner!

Do you use lip plumpers?
Have you tried this one?
Do you think they make any difference?

First Instagram challenge

I joined instagram a while ago – mostly to stalk  people look at pretty pictures while waiting around for busses, people, phone calls to end, people to turn up to meetings etc…

Anyway, I joined up to my first instagram challenge which was created by @foxinflats and it’s called #DAREcember.

It’s 3 days in and I am having fun with it, its n’t to late to join/catch up🙂

Here is a peek of what is coming up. It’s interesting to see the different ways people interperate and photograph the suggestions.

If you want to see everyones pictures, download the instagram app on your phone and search using the hastag #DAREcember

Slack!

Hi all,

So as you can tell I have been a little slack on the blogging front lately.

I’m not a great writer and lately I’ve been too busy to draft, proof read and edit posts.

I am however a huge fan of taking pictures and update my Instagrm account daily!

Look up xdivx and you’ll find me.

Or just click here: http://instagram.com/xdivx/

See you on the flip side!

weekend away

I went away for the long weekend and was blessed to be in a place which had warm sunny weather and beautiful beaches. I also got to stay in a nice hotel, and you know what that means beauties?! MINI HOTEL TREATS!

My hotel is currently stocking Peter Morrisey branded skin/haircare products, and gee they smell nice!

I honestly have no idea how to describe the scent, the closest I can think if is The Body Shops Oceanus with jellybeans!

Thinking of getting a fringe (bangs)

Every few years I decide its a good idea to get a fringe ( or bangs if you’re in the US)

Then 3 months after getting said fringe, I decide it was a terrible idea and that it needs to grow out as soon as possible. This is usually ok as my hair grows pretty fast.

It’s been a good 3 years years since my last fringe, so when I saw this picture I fell in love with the idea all over again!

Recent purchases

Hi All,

Last week I stocked up on some favourite items.

The only new products in the photo which I have not tried is the Face of Australia Foundation & the Australis mascara.

I had recently switched to a natural deodorant and it just was not working for me. Priceline had a 2 for $5 sale so I picked up these Nivea roll ons to try. I’m usually a spray girl, but my recent experiment has left my armpits a bit sore. I hoped that rol on would be more kind/gentle to my irritated skin.

Both the Sukin moisturiser and cream cleanser are staples in my daily skincare routine.

Garnier body summer is the best gradual tanner I’ve tried yet. I buy a bottle every spring and summer.

Natio Toner is a fantastic dupe for the Jurlique rosewater mist (which I keep at my desk at work) I want to buy a small spray bottle and keep this in the fridge when it gets really hot here🙂

My HG mascara is Diorshow, however I’m trying to save cash and switched to the Maybelline Colossal which is fine. The Australis one was on sale and has a huge brush, so I hope it works out!

Lastly, I posted a couple of months ago on my then current foundations – Since that post, I switched to Maybelline FIT Me and have found it goes a little oily around my T zone by about 3pm. Of course I could keep powder nearby and dab it on every afternoon, but I’d rather find “the perfect” foundation! Here’s hoping the Face of Australia product will make me happy🙂

Are any of your favourites shown?

Anything you’d like to try?

Let me know if you want any details on the above products🙂
