Sample Thursdays........

Hey everyone
I was organizing all my beauty things eg: makeup in Face, Eyes, Lips skin care, Hair and I came across all the samples that I have gotten over time with magazines, freebee samples from shops and just every where else you could get samples. So I put them all in the bottom draw of my makeup tower and at the end I ended up with full draw!











So I have decided every Thursday I am going to try the samples for a week and write a small blog on what the products are and if I like them, don't like them, what the texture is like and most importantly if it works! I added some pictures below so you can see the stack of things I get to test and tell you about! I'm a bit excited and hope you will enjoy reading :)
So follow along until I empty my draw :)

Golden Wonder Ballistic

My Lush Bath!

Since its Christmas and i needed to relax, i decided to use the The Golden Wonder Ballistic and i loved it!. it smelled so delicious and soothing. If you shake it, it sounds like there is a little surprise inside. i took photos from the time i dropped it in the bath till the end, take a look!!




                                  Closer up you can see all the glitter in the bath bomb. Its so lovely!




                                                       There is a blue little present inside :)











The photos just dont do the way the bath was justice, it looked like a magical blue lagoon, with gold glitter swirling through the whole bath. when i got into the bath the glitter just swirled around making the bath look even more amazing, i was just mesmerized by it and i will be definitively stocking up on this bath bomb!  

Let me know if you have tried it?

We're Married!!!

Heya! I thought I would update you since my last "were getting married" blog.

                                  Above: Bridal party and Shaun and I :)

So we got married on the 27th of September in a beautiful place called Poets Lane, on the Wednesday it was raining and also on the Friday it was raining, we were getting all different temperatures for Thursday but on the actual day it was amazing weather.




My 2 Beautiful Flower Girls xx















We had a great day, it was relaxing and I had no worries I felt like I was floating through the day it was that great!

It just went so fast, but we enjoyed every part of it, everyone was dancing, laughing and eating, the way it should be!

The next day, nice and early we went to the airport and off on our honeymoon to Queensland, the flights were bad :( but that was the only thing that was bad about the honeymoon the rest of the time we were tanning, swimming, going to the theme parks and we went to Movie world twice, because I love it hehe.

Of course we went shopping and I bought a lot of beauty things which was great for me and Shaun bought guy things for himself. After all of that we had the best time but we feel like we need a week off from being busy just to relax.


Being back in the real world and being married feels exactly the same as before but, we just love each other more and more every day, I couldn't be more happier :)


Stay tuned for more bubbles on beauty, fashion and life

LuSh!!!

Hey Loveys :)

Just a week ago Shaun (my husband) and I went to Lush (Doncaster, Victoria) My favorite store!! The products are great and the staff are so friendly. Lush brought out there Christmas and Halloween range and I was soooooo excited anyway, we bought a few things that smell amazing!
(If you cant tell already, we Loveeeee Bath Bombs, they are our favorites!)


The first thing I HAD to buy because its just wow....the smell is soooo delicious! its the Snow Fairy body wash 500ml it is $27.50 AUS it comes in 3 different sizes 100g /$8.95 AUS, 250g /$14.95 AUS . It is a limited edition bottle so only comes out for Christmas time. when i popped the lid to have a smell of the body wash i just wanted to smell it forever, it smells like candy/lollies ohhh i love it!  Straight away when i used it in the shower i yelled out to Shaun that i have to get more bottles to stock up till next Christmas! I also just love how the bottles have "Home made with touch of sparkle" makes it just a little bit more special.




The next thing we bought was a Jacko Ballistic, its a bath bomb that is shaped like a cute pumpkin with a scary face hehe. It is $6.75 AUS and it is 100g. When i smell it, it smells a bit minty a bit spicy and a little bit of sweet, a hard one to describe but there is a cute little blurb on the packaging which says "spicy cardamom and clove bud oil to warm up cold, tired and aching limbs after a hard night of trick or treating" i love how every piece has a little blurb on the packaging to tell you about the product.








"The Golden Wonder Ballistic" is another Christmas treat, it is an adorable Yellow/ Gold Christmas present with a white bow on top bath bomb. it smells great! the description says "A fresh burst of Citrus" just smells Delicious to me! :) and when you shake it, just like you would with a present you get on Christmas it rattles! I'm excited to try it! It is $6.95 AUS and is 220g.






I was happy to see the "Father Christmas Ballistic" a cute round bath bomb the has a Santa Claus face with his beard and cute hat he is just to cute to use " Mandarin oil and orange flower absolute" just delicious! It is $6.95 AUS and is 205g.



"Snow White"  is another bath bomb which i was excited to see " It gives off a smooth white foam of bubbles as the steam of  your bath lifts a scent of apples to your nose" Sitting here writing this blog and looking out the window at the weather being windy and cold i feel like having a nice warm relaxing bath, plus the little descriptions just make you want to use it straight away! It is $5.95 AUS and is 90g





The Last one we got was a bit raunchy but we love it! "Sex in the Shower" $4.95 AUS 80g it is an Emotibomb which u use in the shower and the smells are just lovely, in the description it says " encourages people to share a shower to conserve water. it wafts sensual scents entwine themselves around you" Couldn't have said it better my self :)


Hope you Enjoy and Go To Lush and Splurge!!

Nails!!


Hey guys and gals, i started being obsessed with doing my nails all pretty last year when Sally Hansen first brought out their stick on range,

I just thought I would let everybody know that, I am a biter and nail biter, i know people say Ewww that's disgusting, but they say, the first step is admitting you've got a problem, soo yes I am a nail biter! Hehe

These on the Left are a Cupcake design i saw and Loved!!! so i thought i would put my own little spin on them i used Sally Hansen nail polishes, light pink and dark pink also white for the cupcake top and red for the cherry :)


Anyway I like to experiment with nail polish and getting different designs and pictures that I thought I would share with you, some of those pictures of the nails I have done :)
The ones Above are to cute! and im in love with these!! the top are mini mouse ones and the bottom are daisy duck ones :)
 
These ones here Above are ones i made up my self, kind of a twist to the french polish but with the added sparkles and cute love hearts :)

Bracelet Stacks.....

I keep seeing everywhere bracelet stacks and I thought....yup I really like them haha so I kept looking for things I thought would look good together, but I could never really find what I liked.

So the second day of our honeymoon in Qld (yes! I got married yayyyyy) we went shopping at pacific fair, and I found this little shop called cosmetics plus so of course I went in! They had brands like, Maybaline, Sally Hansen, Revlon, Accessories and mostly Bys.

So I went to the bracelet section and found the 2 pieces I would have to start my stack yayyyy. The brand is called "Be Yourself" and both bracelets are gold and Nickle free. One is a cross with dimondy looking things in the cross, and its linked to a gold thin chain which is cute that was $4.00 AU and the second is gold links with a white string running through that was $5.00 AU.

I love my starting pieces! Anyways thought I would update on my pieces as soon as I find more I shall add them also!

Mel xx



P.s Love love love them! Also looking for a bracelet with the LOVE charm on it next :)

As promised, I have found another 2 colours for my bracelet stack. They were from the same store there brand is "Be Yourself" as well, there is a peach one with gold round balls, that was $8.00 and a light purple one the same with the gold balls that is $8.00 also :)
