Last month, I was invited to check out the MOR 17/18 and Holiday Gifting Launch. I’ve heard of this brand before and I like trying out the testers whenever I’m in Smith & Caughey’s. I was so excited because I knew I’d be in for a scentsational experience.
I wanted to write about my September Highlights/Recap because it was such a busy but great month. A lot of different things happened such as blog events, catch up with friends and eating lots of food.
It’s been a while since I’ve shared a homeware haul here on the blog and for some time, I didn’t really buy too many homewares since I was focused on getting new lounge furniture instead. Now that I’m done with that, I’ve slowly moved on to my kitchen and upgrading a few things. This haul is mainly from Kmart and The Warehouse. If you’re after affordable home stuff, check out my post below.
This week, from 9th – 15th of October is Mental Health Awareness Week and today is the World Mental Health Day. I’ve had this post sitting in my drafts and I never thought I’d publish it because I don’t share overly personal things here. However, I don’t think I’ll have a more fitting day to post this and it’s about time we stop feeling embarrassed or scared talking about mental health.
I’ve had a tumultuous year to say the least and one of the biggest things I’ve realised is the importance of making sure I keep my mental health in check. Today, I’ll share how I’ve dealt with my mental health and how I boost my wellbeing.
Last weekend, I headed over to Avondale for the monthly NZ Bloggers Brunchclub at Rosebank Coffee & Kitchen. I’ve never been there but I’ve heard great things so I was pretty excited. My friend Lena of Lena Talks Beauty also organised it. I love trying new food places so I’m glad to have this place ticked off my long list.
The Wet N Wild Midnight Mermaid Collection launched in Farmers last week in NZ and I was sent a bunch of the products to try out. This limited edition collection has liquid lipsticks, liquid eyeshadows, highlighter and eyeliner. I have everything in the collection except for the eyeliners as I don’t know if the liners are also available over here.
I can’t say the shades in this collection are for the every day makeup look but they’re definitely fun! I would recommend them for parties especially halloween. If you want to see the products swatched, continue down below.
The busiest week in fashion is done and dusted and after an exciting (but exhausting) week of going to shows, I thought I’d round up my third NZ Fashion Week here on the blog. I went to 13 shows in total which is a feat for me since I attended shows in between work. This year’s fashion week has been the best so far and I have so many highlights.
Today I’m sharing my winter secret and the one product that saved my lips this season. The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask has been my saviour. If you suffer from dry or cracked lips, this might be the product for you.
My last recap post was back in May so it’s about time I do another update since the past two months were definitely better than April & May combined for various reasons.
The photos in this post was taken back in June but I couldn’t not share the prettiest place I’ve ever had brunch in. If you live in Auckland, I highly recommend checking out Homestead on a beautiful day. I went here for brunch with a bunch of NZ bloggers. I’ve never been here before and this place was full of surprises.
