Fresh Flowers

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you’ll know just how much I adore flowers! Aren’t these flowers absolutely gorgeous? They were a surprise thanks to Fresh Flowers at FreshFlowers.com.au! I ordered the ‘Florist Pick‘ on their website, to be delivered yesterday (they have a same day delivery service), and I was very impressed. A lovely florist creates a unique bouquet inspired by the season’s best flowers, which makes up the ‘Florist Pick’.

It arrives with an envelope attached, enclosed is the chosen card, and flower food to pour into the water and make your gorgeous bouquet of flowers last longer. Isn’t the wrapping pretty?!

Ordering online is pretty easy. I found it was very simple, which makes the transaction straightforward, especially for those who might be in a rush! I used my PayPal, which always makes purchasing online easier. I’m never able to remember my card numbers! Fresh Flowers delivers flowers to Sydney and most areas in Australia – capital cities, territories, metropolitan and regional areas. The delivery guy was very nice on the phone and he called before approaching my place to check I was home. What I think is great, is if the person you buy flowers for is not home, you can elect for them to come back again the next day (with additional cost), or leave the flowers at the door.

Flowers range from $29.95, and there are a variety of types to choose from. I believe it’s affordable for someone like me who has a mortgage and needs to keep a budget.

I will definitely order from Fresh Flowers in future, as I was impressed with the service and the quality of flowers.

I was sponsored by Fresh Flowers to share my experience ordering these flowers. As always, the content & opinions expressed here are entirely my own and I bring to you only the best products and experiences.

My Busy Day Revealed | Clearasil Sponsored Giveaway

 

Hey lovelies!

As you all know, I’m holidaying in Greece atm! Clearasil have asked me to share with you how I meet my day head on, and what exactly it involves! We want to inspire you, and show you that you can have the confidence to feel your best, no matter what your day throws at you. Whether you’re holidaying, like me, or on the go (like what I’m usually up to when not going to a wedding in Mykonos).

Please read on to see what my busy day usually consists of, and how I get through it!

7:00am – My usual day consists of busyness – as well as moments of pleasure. I wake up at 7am and get ready for my 9-5 job. A typical day starts with waking up to my alarm, jumping in the shower followed by my skin care routine. I’ve been using Clearasil products, specifially Clearasil’s Daily Clear Vitamins & Extracts range. What I love about it is that its kind enough on my skin for everyday use and keeps my skin nice and clear. I’ve been using the range while here holidaying in Greece and it has kept my skin smooth and clear of pimples, which is important when you’re on a holiday and want to look and feel your best. I had a wedding in Mykonos and was glad to have my skin free of blemishes!

Beginning the day with my skincare regime is an everyday routine of mine which helps me get on with the day and feel empowered to take on whatever life throws at me. I then pick an outfit to suit my mood, makeup and then a spritz of perfume. My favourite at the moment is DAISY by Marc by Marc Jacobs.

9am – Start work at the office, and of course, I have my morning soy mocha coffee (With 2 sugars naughty me!). Some days at the office when my skin is feeling isn’t feeling great I have my cosmetic bag with me in my handbag ready for touch ups and blemish control – When your skin is clear you not only look confident – you feel more confident and ready to get on with your day.

12 noon – A great time to grab some lunch and go for a walk. I’m quite blessed to have some beautiful spots around my work. I love going outside in my breaks as it’s always good to get out of the office for some fresh air and getting something delicious and nourishing to eat.

5pm – finish work and make my way home. I hop on a bus and train to get home and usually read a book on the way. I’m currently reading ‘A Lineage of Grace’ by Francine Rivers, and it’s so hard to put down! Great read on the way home after a long day.

6pm – get home and usually my boyfriend brings over a home cooked meal made by his mum. I love her cooking! After dinner, it’s time to relax and unwind. I spend time with George and we watch our favourite TV shows together – We love our Aussie TV shows like The Voice, My Kitchen Rules, Master Chef or Big Brother.

9:30-10pm – I finish the day with my night time skin care regime. At the moment, I’m using Clearasil at night as well as the morning. It’s great to go to bed after taking off the day’s makeup and relax in bed with fresh, clear skin. At this time of the night I’m ready in bed reading a book which helps me switch off enough to fall asleep and recharge for the busy day coming up!

For your chance to win a $500 experience of your choosing to exercise your confidence, tell us in the comments section below this blog post, a time when confidence failed you because of bad skin!

Competition closes Wednesday 7 Aug, 2013 at 5pm AEST, open to Australian residents only.

 Miu Miu Sunglasses | Jane Iredale Lip Stain

miu miu cat eye sunglasses short balayage

I’ve always loved miu miu for their very feminine yet edgy fashion. You might remember I attempted miu miu swallow nails, inspired by the print which was made so famous. (Not sure how well of a job I did!) And this post I did to tribute the amazing DIYS on the net.

These Miu Miu sunglasses are so glittery and glamorous. I seriously could own as many sunglasses as I have shoes, I love them that much.

The Athletes Foot

 

Hey guys! I’ve been oh so busy, with my new job, keeping fit and enjoying the spurt of hot weather on the weekend. I feel great!

Especially lovin’ my new asics which I told you about recently.

 

I wore them walking/running on the weekend, and they were absolutely comfortable and light. I felt pretty stylish in them too. The amazing thing is that they fit perfectly. Thanks to The Athletes Foot I was lucky enough to have their expert Fitting Technician Keiran help me find the absolute right fit and style for Summer! I really do recommend that you do the same, and get your ‘fit’ too!!!

Who doesn’t want the right ‘fit’ for Summer?

How I felt when walking in the shoe:

 

  • Comfort level – 10 outta 10!
  • Very light and flexible.
  • My stride was quite straight. (not sure if that’s the right terminology.) The way the shoe
  • is made, it helps keep your foot aligned when walking/running.
  • Afterwards my feet weren’t sore, as they are with other shoes when walking long
  • distances. This proves the level of support the shoe is giving to my feet.
  • With other shoes, my right knee also feels quite strained after a long walk. Not the case
  • in these amazing shoes! I can’t believe how supportive they actually are!

You can get your own fit in store at The Athletes Foot too OR jump online at www.theathletesfoot.com.au

Here are some piccies from my girly night out at Miss Fox in Melbourne a few weeks ago! I was flown in by VEET EasyWax & Nuffnang Au, and put up in a cosy apartment in the midst of the city. Such an exciting, first time experience!!!

One of the most exciting parts of a night out, is getting ready. I got my GHD out and straightened my hair, enjoyed putting on my makeup and of course my Veet EasyWax to ensure my legs (and arms) were smooth and sexy for a night out!

Here I am, dressed for Spring weather in Melbourne. A 3/4 long sleeve top to keep warm + a high waist skirt with my BARE legs (of course I have to show off my freshly waxed, hair free legs). Not sure if you read my Veet EasyWax post earlier, but basically, it’s an electrical roll-on device, which keeps the wax at the perfect temperature, so you can achieve smooth gorgeous hair free legs, just like in a salon.

YSL Touche Éclat

YSL

 YSL Touche Eclat

The secret weapon behind having a luminous and refreshed complexion would have to be the YSL Touche Éclat. YSL holds the perfect solution to cover imperfections, erase signs of fatigue and highlight areas of the face with a simple *click* of the Touche Éclat highlighting pen.

 

The beauty of the product for me is that it concealed and highlighted at the exact same time, covering imperfections and brightening the face to give my complexion an excellent glow.

 

This is the exact product you need in your purse for looking wide awake and put together for the first meeting of the morning, through to the 3pm “make me gorgeous pick-me-up” we all long for at the end of the day.

 

If the sleek and sophisticated gold packaging wasn’t enough to make you fall in love with it, the YSLTouche Éclat actually delivers its promise. We all look for that product that does what it says it’s supposed to do and the YSL Touche Éclat pen gives you a radiant, flawless face – just like it says it will.

YSL Touche Eclat

Simply use the pen to highlight the bridge of the nose, highest part of your cheekbone and under the eyebrow –when applied in the perfect areas, the light hits where Touche Éclat has been applied and reflects off the face creating a radiant glow. Also, apply to the cupid’s bow area to achieve that perfect pout.

 

YSL Touche Éclat is the cosmetic equivalent of your best friend!

 

The popularity of this product is undeniable with 1 sold every 10 seconds around the world.
