The Parcel Autumn 2017


Apologies, I have been so slack with the Parcel Autumn edition. I forgot to take a photo of the outside packaging before I disposed of it. I took way too long to try everything. Then I took even longer to sit down to write about it. FACE Burt's Bees - Lip Crayon 100% Natural I do quite like the few Burts Bees products I have tried & this is no exception. The colour is a good match for me, it looks quite natural. The only let down is it smell quite waxy, like a crayon. Biore - Baking Soda Scrub [...]

The Parcel Summer 2016


FACE Nude by Nature - Sheer Glow BB Cream I really liked the Nude by Nature mineral powder in the Spring Parcel so I was expecting good things. But I was a little disappointed. The colour match is great but I am yet top find a BB Cream that isn’t patchy. It has also left my face shiny, so I will have to use a powder on top. Nip+Fab - Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads I don't recall having tried anything glycolic before. After using these pads for a few days in a row my face does feel a bit [...]

The Parcel Spring 2016


I have been so slack in getting The Parcel Spring review organised. I've waited for ages to try most of the products and now that I am watermarking my photos it seems like such a chore. FACE The Body Shop – Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask I was expecting a thick cream-like mask however it was quite runny. There were chunks of what appeared to be seaweed, which I found odd. Overall it left my face feeling smooth & clean. Nude by Nature – Natural Mineral Cover This is my favourite product from this parcel. The shade is a tad [...]

Book Review: Strong Looks Better Naked


I had to wait a little while for Strong Looks Better Naked to become available at the library. But I didn't mind waiting. I get an email notification when something is ready for me to collect, which is one of the reasons why I love my library. The book is broken into three parts covering the body, mind, and heart. The body section focuses on exercise & food as they often go hand in hand when it comes to improvement. She talks about how she first started going to the gym & how she came to love it. How to [...]

The Parcel: Winter 2016


The Parcel Winter has quite a few full-size products! Face Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm I got a Burt's Bees lip balm in a subscription box a little while ago & I actually don't mind it. I keep it by my bed and usually put it on before I leave the house and before I jump into bed. I'm not sure I will be using the tinted version before bed, but I have been using it before I leave the house. Garnier - Wake Up Cream I have sampled a few Garnier face creams in the past but I [...]

The Parcel Autumn 2016


I was honestly a little sad that there were only 6 products in The Parcel Autumn, after the last Parcel had so much in it. RELATED: The Parcel: Winter 2016 Body OPI Nail Lacquer - Embrace-Dare Ya! If I were to describe this colour to someone I'd call it red Chinese satin. It reminds me of the Chinese style dresses & tops that are made of satin. I actually have one, although it's blue & I am pretty sure it was from Taiwan. I was surprised to see that once I had put two coats of this on my nails it appeared [...]

Book Review: Life and Death


Please note this post may contain affiliate links. While clicking these links won’t cost you any extra money, I may earn a commission if you make a purchase. As soon as I discovered Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined I knew that I had to read it. This is the Special Edition for the 10th anniversary. It is the original Twilight but the with the genders reversed. So the human is the male & the vampire is the female. The foreword mentions that this was mostly to dispel the thoughts the Bella wasn’t a damsel in distress but rather a human [...]

The Parcel Summer 2015


This edition of The Parcel Summer is absolutely overflowing with products! I am blown away at the number of products, a total of 11 (counting the shampoo and conditioner as one) plus there is such a variety in the type of products. RELATED: The Parcel: Autumn 2016 Face Paula's Choice - Vitamin C Spot Treatment I haven't had much of a chance to try this out yet. I always forget about it and am pretty conscious of putting layer upon layer of product on my face at any time of the day. I'm also concerned about putting vitamin C on [...]

The Parcel Spring 2015


I actually had some drama relating to this box of the parcel Spring. Shipping was to be anywhere from September 7 -23 so I waited patiently for my parcel. All other times I have received it about a week after the first shipment. After having nothing on September 26, I submitted an enquiry through the online form on the parcel.com.au asking to follow up on my parcel. Two days after this I got an incredibly generic email asking me to patiently wait a further 14 business days from the date of that email for delivery. Then on October 6, I [...]

June Bellabox


The June Bellabox theme was 'Winter Warrior' with the idea to brighten up winter with a pop of colour. It was revealed that everyone would receive a lip tint stick. Tracking email received: I didn't actually get one Package received: Wednesday, June 17 This is actually my last Bellabox too as I received a one-year subscription for my birthday last year. There are many reasons why I have chosen not to renew my subscription, in no particular order: I will be paying for it (it was a gift last year) the price has increased (to cover postage costs) lack of variety [...]
