I know it's Tuesday & I normally don't post on Tuesdays, but today is a special occasion & I just have to get this out.

Today this little blog of mine celebrates its first birthday!

I know, time flies right? I can't quite believe I've made it to the 1 year mark myself.

My Perfume Collection & Wishlist (Update)


Those of you who have been with me since the start might recall I did a post back in about February featuring all the perfumes I own, plus all the ones I wanted. It was one of my most popular posts & one I really enjoyed putting together. Since then my stash has grown & my wishlist has changed, so I figured why not put that post into draft & give it an overhaul, with new photos & the like (although some of the wording will remain the same).

Like I said the first time around, I don't wear perfume as often as I should. Mostly because I forget to apply the stuff before heading out, but I'm also aware that people are allergic and/or sensitive to it, so I guess that's partly why I don't wear it that much. Nevertheless, I do enjoy collecting perfume and I can't resist going past the fragrance sections of Myer or David Jones without browsing & having a sniff of something a bit special. I reckon a spritz of perfume rounds things off rather nicely.

Is it a bird?
Is it a plane?
No, it's a dupe-tastic nail polish!

Well, sort of.

Today I'm going to swatch & review Lounge Lover, a peachy pink from Essie's spring 2016 collection.

Super Duper Mega Empties Time! (August/September/October)

empty beauty products

Missed an empties post? Catch up via the Empties tag.

Hola mi amigas! Feels like it's been a hot minute since I did one of these posts....although I suppose it has been a while, since the last one was back in June/July!

This empties post is a little varied in terms of what products I've finished. Regulars will know that I tend to finish skincare quicker than other beauty products; but this time around I've managed to finish up a tiny amount of haircare & makeup items as well, so yay, go me! There's also a bunch of empties from my travels (because I wasn't going to stop photographing my beauty trash whilst away), so my photos will be varied in terms of backgrounds & lighting.
