In 2020, I rediscovered my love of reading and ever since then I have read consistently throughout the year. It has been one of my favourite things to do to unwind and relax. Last year was a big reading year for me and I want to share my top reads and the books that stood out to me.

January 2021 Highlights

January is my birthday month. 2020 was a rollercoaster of a year so for this year, I want to focus more on the positives and good things. I thought it would be nice to look back on my highlights so I thought my birthday month and the first month of the new year would be a great start.

I actually did a lot of exciting and fun things in January so I’ve compiled them all down below.

2017: A Review

I have been a terrible blogger as the last time I posted here was back in October. The later part of the year is always so hectic and I also lost my blogging mojo. I’m hoping to get it back this year so to start afresh (even though this post is also a bit late), I want to look back on 2017 which has been a year of change.

2017 was by far, the hardest year as it truly tested my strength but it also turned out to be the best. It made me a stronger and better person. I took every opportunity that was presented to me and it was the year that I really felt like I was being myself. In a way, my break up was like me being set free from the anchor that weighed me down. I was finally able to live my life how I should’ve.

Wet n wild makeup

Wet N Wild

For affordable makeup lovers out there, today is the day. Wet n Wild is finally launching in Farmers here in NZ. I’ve heard about Wet n Wild for years but since it’s impossible to get a hold of here in NZ, I’ve never tried any of their products before. The wait is over because from August 1, it will be stocked in selected Farmers stores and the website.

I was kindly sent a bunch of products last week and I’m sharing them with you so you know what to expect. I squealed when I saw the package. I was spoilt and I can’t wait to try them all.

I went with my friend today and I wanted to share today’s experience because you still have 2 more days left to check out this year’s show.

I’ll share what we got up to, my haul and stalls I recommend checking out.

makeup sale haul

Makeup Sale Haul

Last weekend I went to the usual Fragrance and Makeup Sale that happens every few months in Auckland. I didn’t go too crazy but I still wanted to show you what I got.

The sale was at ASB Showgrounds which was at the same time as this Noel Leeming technology sale which I also went to in search for a camera but I only ended up buying a powerbank. Anyway, if you want to see my haul in detail and how much each product was, click below.

Hello everyone! My name is Angela and I am a collector of a lot of things. From clothes, shoes, bags to makeup and home decor.

I have been blogging on Tumblr for 5 years but I thought I’d try a different platform and see where this takes me!

This blog will be a compilation of things I love, I’ve experienced, consumed or created.

Here a few things about me:

  • I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I love this country and it is where I now call home.
  • I am a planner with a side passion for all things fashion, style and beauty.
  • I am a foodie. I love trying new places to eat and I have a major sweet tooth.
  • I am addicted to Instagram (astylecollector) and post there almost every day.
  • I absolutely love lipsticks and have a growing lipstick collection.
  • I have recently moved out of my parent’s house and I have been really into home decorating.
  • I love taking photographs and I enjoy capturing memories. My photos are taken from a Canon 600D or my trusty iPhone.

I hope you enjoy my future posts! I have a few lined up! 🙂
