January Favorites

I thought I might start something new, so here it is!

1) Too Faced- Chocolate Bar Palette: This palette is amazing, I can not say it enough. The colours are so pigmented and the smell when you open it is just delicious. It has been my staple in my everyday make up. (Still wondering if I should do a review, let me know in the comments down below!)

2) Garnier Micellar Water: I first heard about this in one of Lauren Curtis’ video and just had to buy it because of how much she raved about it. It was worth the hype! All it takes is one damp cotton pad to take off my make up on BOTH eyes.

3) Olay Fresh Effects Moisturizer: This is my favorite out of their line, they face washes made me break out and did not do anything for my skin. I put this on every night before bed and in the morning and it does not make my face greasy at all! I also love how fast in sinks in.

4) Apple Cider Vinegar: Okay, I know that this is the weirdest favorite but I had to tell you guys how amazing it is. I mix one part ACV and 3 parts water and use it as my toner, it has completely cleared my skin and made it look brighter. I also have recently started putting some of it into my water.

5) Haivanas Slim Thongs: I kept hearing so many great things about this brand and pretty much everyone in Australia owns a pair; I completely understand why. They are so comfy! I ended up getting the slim pair with the jewel (the exact ones in the photo) just because they looked a little classier.

6) Flash Tattoos: I have gone through one sheet and already ordered a couple more! These are amazing and so cute. Great for the summer!

What are some of your January favorites and did you enjoy this post? If so, let me know in the comments below wether or not it is something I should continue.

A Weekend Away In Byron Bay

As some of you may know last weekend was the Australia Day long weekend aka the weekend in which Byron Bay stole my heart.

The beach was gorgeous and the sand art added to the vibe that this place gives off.

There are no big name stores or restaurants which add to the hippy vibe and everything from the clothing to the food was just amazing and pricey to say the least.

The people do their part in keeping this gorgeous place clean and tidy; the act of throwing a cigarette butt on the ground is followed by a $200 fine.

The nightlife is suitable for all different kind of music tastes. The night started off at The Beachy which was a fun EDM atmosphere but we were feeling something more laid back; so we ended up at The Northern where a live band was playing acoustic version of popular hits. It was a great way to finish off the night!

Byron Bay is beautiful and I plan on going back especially to do the Lighthouse walk which I didn’t get a chance too. If you have been debating on going there, I recommend you do- it’s such a great environment.

What a Wednesday!

It’s a beautiful day in the Gold Coast today and I woke up to a great surprise this morning!

Starbucks Canada had featured my Instagram from last week! Which is pretty awesome.

That is the picture above. If you aren’t a gold star member I suggest you get on it!

Some of the gold star member benefits include:

– a free drink with every 12 stars.

– the cutest card for your wallet (as note above)

– a variety of special offers

Just start off by purchasing a Starbucks gift card (or asking for one as a gift) and recharging it with money every time you order a drink. This gives you a star every time you do!

Here is the photo posted by Starbucks Canada.
