BB CREAM REVIEW - SKIN79 Oriental Gold


Brand: SKIN79
Store/Price: eBay (a Korean seller), about $15 AUD 

The Oriental Gold bb cream has been on my 'to buy' list quite a few months now, ever since I noticed my beloved Etude bb cream acting a bit temperamental, the shade darkening throughout the day! 


This product is aimed towards more mature, dryer skin complexions with focus on whitening, wrinkle improvement and SPF25 PA++. It boasts a number of brightening and firming properties such as white tea, black tea and green tea. We all know drinking green tea is good for the mind and body, and now we can incorporate it into our skincare routine too~

Well, I'm not too concerned about wrinkles and such yet, and I don't particularly have dry skin, but I still wanted to try this because the shade is much less grey, or beige-pink toned than many of the bb creams I've come across.

Cosmetic Love Haul + SKIN79 Oriental Gold bb cream


Hi, just a quick post today showing my Cosmetic Love haul which arrived about 2 weeks ago. 

Cosmetic Love operates on eBay and have also recently opened their own online website, selling a lot of popular Korean beauty brands (Etude House, Missha, etc). 

I bought a white pearly eye liner, a pink lip tint, a dark brown/black eyebrow colour and a bb cream. All items are from Etude House. And they were quite generous with giving samples too.

Here's a review of my shopping experience with them~

Random filler post 004


Cute Mary-Janes I wore last week

Hmm, this last week or two has mainly been about me deciding to get off my butt and start exercising a bit more. Still need some motivation to eat healthier, or at least scale back on the junk food, though >_< 

Some outdoorsy pics, 2 obscure pics of me without make-up or circle lenses *gasp*, and just a lot of random, unrelated things!

Also, a big thank you to Donna and Anna for nominating me with the Versatile Blogger Award, and also a belated thanks to Jill who also nominated me back last month :)

Latest Shopping Haul - Rubi Shoes, Jay Jays, Forever New & Valleygirl



Hi lovely people, I've got a shopping haul to show you (yeah, another one!)

Seems like the end of Summer sales are really starting to ramp up, and I managed to pick up some bargains here and there. 

First stop of the day was Cotton On/Rubi Shoes, at Harbourtown (direct outlet shopping). They were having a pretty massive sale on shoes! Heaps of sandals, ballet flats & sneakers 3 for $10, or $5-10 a pair, and boots and heels around the $10-20 mark~

My happy place (origin of Tulip Love)

I guess it's no surprise that I love tulips. I like many flowers in general, but of all of them, Tulips are my absolute number one favourites. I love the bright, cheery colours, the cup-like shapes, and the way they look spread out in rows and rows in an explosion of colour, gently swaying in the breeze...it just strikes a chord of happiness within me!

I was looking through some photos on my computer and came across these photos, which were taken on a family day trip a few years ago. I think it was the first time I had seen so many tulips, and it was probably the moment that I fell in love with this flower~

You know the phrase that some people say, "close your eyes and think of your happy place"? 

Well, any field full of Tulips is my happy place <3

I thought I'd share these pretty pictures, because it's a shame to have them languish on my computer. 


These photos were taken at Araluen Botanical Park (it's in the Perth Hills)~

Pretty & Cute package, My Winter Hitlist + Shopping Loot

Hello all, I've got another shopping haul to show you ^_^

My Pretty&Cute package arrived yesterday, and I went shopping with my sis today - since she needed a new backpack for school. 

From Pretty&Cute I only bought one thing - the Fairy Drops Candy Bar bb cream. I was searching for a bb cream that had a more yellow undertone, and that had no SPF in it, and this was the about the only product that popped up on Google.

I love my Etude bb cream to death, but due to it's high SPF it can't be worn for occasions to take pictures with the flash on, as there'll be a scary, shiny white cast on the face. 

I'm super nervous about this because it's quite pricey (more than double the amount I pay for my Etude one) and I hate wasting money, so I hope it suits my skin tone. I'll do a review on it after I try it a couple times.

I got a cute hair bow clip as a gift too~
