I'll be going to this nail salon warehouse to purchase a few ESSIE nail polishes that I've wanted for quite sometime now . . . & I also want the Seche Vite dry top coat tooo! I've heard heaps of reviews about it and a lot of girls have raved about how great the product is! So, for all you Sydney bloggers, this question is for you!

Formula 10.0.6 & Australis!

Just a really really (& I mean really) mini haul from Priceline. So before work I stopped by Priceline to pick up two things that I wanted to try but never really had the chance to purchase it because I was too hesitant! I purchased Formula 10.0.6's Tinited Moisturizer and Australis' Ready Set Go Translucent Powder.

I've been eyeing the tinted moisturizer for a really long time now and have been reading many reviews on it, so today I thought I might as well purchase it since I never really read anything "negative" about it. Since I'll be going on clinical placement for 3 weeks, I thought it would be the perfect time this.

75ml (2.54 FL OZ)
Claims to: offer sun protection with a healthy golden tint. Refreshing aloe calms while vitamin A smoothes to defend against clogged pores.
Comes in a really easy to use squeeze tube to eliminate wastage and the packaging is quite cute too!
SPF 15

Every time I walk into Big W, Target, K mart & Priceline I always seem to ignore and zoom pass Australis since it isn't a really well known brand. However, for the last couple of weeks I've been watching youtube reviews on girls who have tried Australis' products and most particular their Translucent Powder. I heard really good reviews on this product mainly from chaigyaru and tramieee and I was intrigued with the fact that it made their faces really soft and supple. I've been using Maybelline's Dream Matte Powder & I absolutely love it but since I'm running low on it I wanted to try something new so I decided to purchase it.

True Translucent
Claims to: quickly sets make-up for all day, on the go wear.
The packaging is quite convenient, compact in size, perfect for your make up bag and has the Australis' trademark colours (hot pink & black). However I heard that the sifting holes are quite large making it really messy to use. We'll see I have the same problem with it . . .

Anyways til next time guys!

NEW! Storage . . .

I'm the type of person who constantly rearranges things around my room . . . I don't exactly know why . . . but I like CHANGE & making my bedroom look different every now and then. The main reason I wanted to rearrange things was because I wanted to find a new storage unit to place all my make up, skin care & hair care products and nail polishes in. I remembered watching a lot of youtube videos of girls showing how they store their make up and sharing their useful tips on keeping it all organised! In most videos I noticed that most stored their make up in this 8 or 10 tier tower drawer, so I did my research and found a few on ebay but wasn't patient enough to wait so I decided to head out in search for something similar. So the other day, my boyfriend & I went looking around everywhere and nothing . . . but he didn't want to give up, so we checked another place out and luckily enough the store we went to had something very similar to what I wanted and what was also even better was that it was the last one in stock! WIN!

So here it is . . .

 For those of you who live in Australia, I purchased this at "Homeart" but for those of you who don't live in Australia, I'm pretty sure many of you can purchase something similar to this near where you live.

$49.95 - pretty cheap!

8 tier tower with clear drawers and it also comes with wheels but I didn't bother attaching them on. The drawers have sufficient space for you to fit anything you want (in my case make up . . .etc). The quality is quite good and very sturdy. I would recommend this to anyone who is in the search for a storage unit, especially for their beauty supplies! It's a great investment and keeps all of your things organised.

Definitely happy with this purchase! If you want me to take pictures and show you what I have in each draw leave a comment and I will get to it asap . . .

A few days ago my mate & I decided to go & purchase tickets to the Filipino Fiesta. So we headed to the Filipino store in Granville where they sold pre-sale tickets for $15 instead if paying $20 at the door (you'd want to save tooo!). So today was the Filipino Fiesta & we were sooooo excited . . . lame right? Well we were most definitely more excited about the foooood we were going to eat! My mate & I were craving the whole week before the fiesta . . . & were salivating just talking about it! It was such a cold, glooomy, windy & rainy day, which sucked because the ground was all slippery & muddy BUT thank gooodness the fiesta was undercover, but it didn't stop us freezing!

The boyfriend also came along for the experience . . . but he only came for the car show (typical guys right?). Since he's Vietnamese the food they had available were quite similar to what his mum usually cooks, so it wasn't a major culture shock for him. When we got there it definitely wasn't that crowded, most likely due to the weather (I mean who would've wanted to go out with such ugly weather we had today?). The first thing we did was check out the cars (for the boyfriend, of course) . . & honestly, it was such a downer . . .less than 10 cars showed up for the Show & Shine, so it was definitely an EPIC FAIL on their end! Literally 2 mins checking the cars out, we headed straight for the fooood! I had never seeeen so many filos in my life! The 3 of us felt soooo out of place . . . hahaha even though my mate & I are filo, but everyone else seemed so FOB (fresh off the boat) lol.

The main thing I wanted were fish balls & I definitely went hard out! LOL I bought 3 sticks for the day & it was sooo freaking delicious, especially with the sauce! I was definitely in HEAVEN! They were really really cheap too, $1.50 for a stick of three fish balls and they were HUGE balls! I wanted to buy halo halo as well but is was way tooo cold for it, so my boyfriend & I bought a coconut drink instead, which was still really nice! My mate & I also bought some food for out awesome mother's since they didn't come along! We sat down for a bit as well just to warm up & whilst we sat there munching down out foood, we listened to & mocked a few of the singers that were on stage . . . lol (if any of you are filo or have been to a filo party then you would know that all filo parents love kareoke (aka "magic mic") because they think they know how to sing . . . when most of the time they don't . . .but you do get those parents who can actually sing).

After mocking the singers we got a bit more hungry so we did another happy lap around & bought more foood . . . . I don't know how many happy laps we did & we definitely walked around a lot . . . I was surprised that I didn't bump into more people that I knew . . . but I did bump into a uni mate of mine, which was nice & really really random!

Before we headed home, the weather was clearing up and the sun decided to poke his/her head out for a few minutes, so we decided to jump on the dodgem cars. Soooo embarrassing I tell you . . .felt like such a kid again but it was FUN! lol I was the best driver of all . . my boyfriend & mate could not control their car yet I kept going around in circles and and trying to hit their car from behind! LOL

It was a productive day eating . . most definitely! Entertainment was not all great, we wanted to stay for the pageant but that was until 7ish . . .and we didn't want to stay out in the cold & get sick. The prices of the foods & drinks were really affordable & I honestly only spent $30 and my stomach was definitely satisfied! I wouldn't go to next year's filo fiesta, I mean I haven't been in ages but this year I was really missing quality filo food, so that's all I went for!

I didn't get to take photos from the day because it was just way too cold to whip out my camera every time I purchased something & besides I was too busy eating . . . so my hands were too occupied! lol
