JAPAN VLOG 1 // KYOTO APARTMENT TOUR & Convenience Store Haul!


GUYS I’M IN JAPAN!

Welcome to the first of my daily Japan vlogs! I’ve been travelling around Kyoto and Tokyo with my best friend Jess (don’t worry, the irony that we’re both named Jess isn’t lost on us!) and this is my first vid from the trip.

After an 13 hour journey to Osaka from Melbourne, Australia, we caught the train to Kyoto before arriving at our Airbnb in Kiyomizu-gojo. Follow us around out first half-day in Japan, and see my Kyoto airbnb apartment tour and Japanese convenience store haul!

VLOG // My GLITTER HIGHLIGHT, Photobooths & Winning! // BYS Cosmetics & PETA Event


Oh the things you can achieve on just five hours sleep! I was super tired for this vlog (hopefully you won’t notice haha!), but I still had a great time celebrating with BYS Cosmetics at their blogger party.

They’ve been PETA-certified, which is huge news! Hope you guys enjoy this quick blogger event vlog and stay tuned… because my next one will be from JAPAN!

VIDEO // 3ina The Nude Foundation First Impressions, Try On & Review


I have been forever searching for a foundation that looks natural, while still giving me a flawless finish - something that looked like my skin, but BETTER. The whole ‘no makeup’ makeup look, you know what I mean? #plsgivemegoodskin

I recently bought 3ina’s The Nude Foundation because it promises just that, but did it live up to my expectations? Watch and find out!

WEEKLY VLOG // Lash Extensions, 3ina Beauty Event & Trying SFX Makeup!


So this week I decided to combine all my adventures into a weekly vlog! Let’s pretend four days = one week… not all of my life is interesting enough to catch on camera hehe

On Thursday I attended the 3ina beauty event at Melbourne Central with Biibiibeauty and MrKenDenis (makeup HEAVEN, friends!) and had dinner at my favourite restaurant (if you’re reading this and saw my very first vlog here, you'll know the place!).

On Friday I had a night in and unboxed the 3ina goodie bag, then on Saturday night I filmed a makeup video and tried my hand at SFX makeup (it’s scary… but SO fun!). Fast forward to Sunday, where I visited one of my fave cafes in Bayside and had eyelash extensions done. Big week!

Hope you guys enjoy the vlog, I’m seriously having the best time making them 💕

VIDEO: $4 VS $72 Highlighter // Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops Dupe?!


I LOVE my Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops, but they are just so DARN expensive! So when I found this liquid highlighter by Essence for FOUR DOLLARS, I was praying to the gods of illuminator that I’d found a dupe. 

In this video I swatch them both on my hand, apply them to my face and then top them off with powder to see how they perform against each other. 

Watch to find out who wins!
