Get Ready With Me for a Summer Date Night // VIDEO

I know it's technically the beginning of autumn (or 'fall' for all of my Northern Hemisphere friends) right now in Australia, but this glowy, fresh makeup look works for all season too! 

My boyfriend and I decided to go out for date night (we're Netflix people, so this is kind of a big deal), so I figured I'd do a bit of a glow up and film my makeup look! 

Stay tuned to the end to see where we went - the restaurant is Japanese fusion, and we literally ate SUSHI. PIZZA. Weird, I know. 

Hope you guys enjoy the vid!

My Birthday Weekend! NGV Triennial, Bday Freebies & Dinner at Rockpool // VLOG

Another year older and hopefully a little wiser!

I had such a great birthday weekend (because if your bday falls on - or let’s face it, NEAR - a weekend, why not extend the celebrations?!) with my friends and family and I was totally spoiled. 

Day one, my boyfriend and I went to NGV’s Triennial, which is a huge FREE art exhibition in Melbourne with some ridiculously cool works to see. HIGHLY recommend, plus it’s on til April, so get your tooshies over there! 

Day two was my actual birthday and I made use of all the bday freebies in my inbox, like a free makeup application at Mecca Cosmetica and a Boost juice. Such a steal. Sign up to those newsletters friends! #perks 

In the evening I headed to Arbory for a pre-birthday-dinner drink and then it was off to a total treat of a dinner at Rockpool Bar & Grill for one of the BEST family meals I’ve had in a long time. 

Hope you guys enjoy coming along on my birthday weekend with me! I had a fab time 💖

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 💖💖

My New GLASSES, Manicures & A Priceline Haul! // VLOG

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

In today’s vlog, I also treated myself to a manicure with the C-U-T-E-S-T, minimalistic star nail art at Tam’s Beauty Shop and visited Lincraft to buy some supplies for an upcoming DIY video (keep an eye out, it’s going to be a goodie!). 

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!
