Lush Event

Hey Everyone
I was lucky enough to be invited to the very first Melbourne Lush event, which the lovely ladies called "first date" which i thought was so cute! 

Food for the Event
All the pretty bath bombs at Lush

The Asylum Seeker Resource Center made the food for the night it was yummy! The Asylum Seeker Resource Center teaches asylum seekers to be chefs giving them great job opportunities.

Bubble Bars Looking so Adorible



Lush International Product Trainer, Amy Lynes
Lush Retail Director, Peta Roe


At the start of the night Barbara, Amy and Peta told us all about how Lush is all about charity's and helping out a lot of little charity's instead of one big charity so a lot of charity's get helped which is great! Also how lush dose not use a lot of packaging because its kinder to the environment and they are also against Animal Testing which is a huge plus!


Emotional Colours Read :)
Awww the Magic

I had my Emotional colours read, and it was scarily accurate the first colour is what i have (Fantasy, a Gold Eyeliner), second is what im lacking (Feeling secure, a purple eyeliner) and third is what i need to overcome the second one (Passionate) :)

We got to learn how Lush makes there Angels on Bare Skin Cleanser, which was fun and interactive because some of the girls got to help out.

Her Fashion Box Brunch

Hey Everyone,
When i arrived at Top Paddock i walked into the restaurant and the first thing i saw was Kath's great big smile and then she gave me a big hug, it was like i was going to a family function and i hadn't seen them for a while. It was so great meeting Kath and Kerry they are such beautiful girls and i'm so glad i finally got to meet them and looking forward to future coffee's!



The tables were set out with beautiful flowers, products that had been in the HFB boxes from previous months and the absolutely gorgeous New September boxes that they had put together with cute personalized hand written name tags on them. Let me tell you i was excited in opening that box with my name on it!







After we said our hellos and i got to meet a lot of great people.We then sat down, Kath and Kerry welcomed us and let us in on what was going on in the HFB headquarters, what plans there are for the box and how they met and how they started HFB. We then got to order breakfast and omgsh! it was yum, i ordered the hot cake and it was soo soo pretty i didn't want to eat it, but it was delicious, so i'm glad i did!

Quick review Loreal Volume Million Lashes Excess






Hey Everyone! 
Just thought I would do a quick review of the L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Excess Mascara, I bought it yesterday and thought I would trial it, when I first starting putting the mascara on, it seemed a little wet but as I kept putting more layers on it turned out to be great! I didn't have to re dip my mascara wand I did both eyes with the amount of mascara I had on the wand to start with.



What the Mascara looks like on my lashes

So far I really like it, I'm impressed and it's given me volume that I usually get with 2 different mascaras with less coats.I really like the brush with the short bristles, it gets right into the lashes and makes them pretty, also my lashes have stayed soft and haven't gone all hard like some mascaras can do.
Have you Tried the Loreal Volume Million Lashes Excess? Let me know :)

Katy Perry, Killer Queen, Perfume Review

Image From Coty Inc
Hey Everyone,
Today i'm going to be reviewing Katy Perry's Newest Perfume "Killer Queen", when i received it in the mail i was so excited because i loooveee the bottle, It stands out to me as a Red Diamond (as they say Diamonds are a girls best friend!) with a gold crown on the top as the cap aww its so pretty!! not only is the bottle gorgeous but the packaging that the bottle came in is cute! it has a little saying on the back that says " Own The Throne!" which is such a great little empowering message to send out to all the woman of the world, i didn't want to thorough it out......so i kept it :)

Image From Coty Inc
I love this quote by Katy Perry on what inspired her while making this fragrance.

“When I was creating Killer Queen, I was really inspired by the idea of a strong, confident woman in power and that is exactly what I hoped to put into this fragrance, something that brings out the power inside of you.”
Katy Perry

The Fragrance Notes are:

Top Notes: Wild Berry, Dark Plum & Bergamot 
Middle Notes: Red Velvet Flower,Natural Jasmine Sambac & Rainbow Plumeria 
Base Notes: Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart & Liquid Praline

With perfumes they always smell different on each individual person, but on myself i actually like the scent. It smells Musky and Fruity at the same time, I would imagine a royal wearing this perfume because it is a very sophisticated scent. I have worn it a fair few times and i have noticed that it lasts a good 8 hours of the day, It is also an Eau De Parfum which i like also :)

Prices for Katy Perry Killer Queen Eau de Parfum 
100 ml $69
50 ml $49
30 ml $39
And its in Stores now!


Id like to thank Coty Inc for sending me this perfume to review, I really like it and i'm glad i got to try it. :)
