Trying Sushi Train Style Hot Pot & Catching Up with Friends! // VLOG


Today's vlog is just a little one! Adriana, Bii, Ken and I tried the most unique sushi train-style hot pot restaurant (which while it was fun, the food was just so-so), then we somehow ended up at Chadstone 😂

I didn’t actually film a whole lot as we had such a great time catching up, so it’s a shorter vlog than usual - I still wanted to put it up though, so I hope you guys enjoy!

Plus I still feel like an airhead for saying ‘Ben’ when I meant KEN, I somehow combined ‘Bii’ + ‘Ken’ in my brain and said ‘Ben’ by mistake 😅 Does anyone else do that?? Love you Ken 💖💖

After 5 years with the same glasses, this blind as a bat lil lady decided to splurge on a new pair of specs! #finally

Plus, stay tuned to the end of the video for a Priceline beauty haul!

I Cut My Hair SHORT at a Korean Salon & YouTuber Christmas Party! // VLOG


I cut off all my hair!! I’ve had long hair pretty much my entire life, so going this short was a big deal for me 🙆🏻 Being half Chinese, I always go to Asian salons to get my hair done and Korean style Aery Salon in Melbourne’s CBD did an amazing job transforming my long blonde ombre into a super cute brunette lob! 💇🏻✨

Bii also had Ken and I over at her place for the cutest Christmas party that night, where we ate too much cheese and drank too much wine, but it ended up being easily one of my favourite nights of the summer 💕 

Hope you guys enjoy this week’s vlog!

INSTAGRAM FLATLAY Costume DIY & NYX Cosmetics Halloween Party! // VLOG


Because why just take a photo of the flatlay, when you can BE. THE. FLATLAY. 

This Halloween I was totally extra and dressed up as a literal Instagram flatlay because #ontrend. And I decided to film the DIY process of it as well in case you wanted to be a flatlay for the spooky season too, since it’s SO EASY and you can use whatever makeup you have in your house to make it. Do it for the ‘gram! 

Stay tuned to the end for a lil vlog of the NYX Cosmetics Spooktober Halloween party as well! Big thanks to NYX for having me 🎃✨

What a Weekend! Shopping, Brunch & Beauty Events! // VLOG


What a weekend! This week I’m bringing you a longer vlog because I wasn’t a hermit this weekend (not joking… #introvertlife) and I got up to a LOTTTT

First up I spent Saturday with Bii from BiiBiiBeauty and we splurged on lunch at Chin Chin (comment a 😏 down below if you know what ‘chin chin’ means!) and visited Mecca Cosmetica to see all of their new releases for the 20th birthday collaborations. STILL dreaming about the Hourglass palette!

On Sunday I caught up with Mel, one of my besties from uni to go out to My Other Brother for brunch. If you’re ever in the Camberwell area, get your butt over there because their menu is 👌🏼

Then on Monday I was invited to the Clarisonic & Lancome event for the Aussie launch of the new Clarisonic FOUNDATION BLENDING BRUSH. Yeah. It’s exciting 🎉🥂

I knowww in the intro I said that this would be a weekly vlog, but I ended up not going to some of the beauty events I was invited to because my introverted self needed some recharging time hahaha
