  • I cyberstalk Kylie Kwong’s Instagram and I’m not afraid to admit it, because when you’re a foodie, you CHOOSE to torture yourself by surrounding yourself with other food lovers who overshare their gastronomy exploits. There isn’t a waking moment when you’re not filled with food envy.

  • The gorgeous Ainead has been such a temptress. Every other week, she’d share her garage sale loot on Instagram and she has such a good eye. We share similar tastes, so I might be biased. She told me about the Australia wide Garage Sale Trail on Saturday and we immediately knew we had to hook up to do it together.

  • I slathered pumps of Mancine's Summer Tan in Dark onto my skin and worried it would darken my skin too much. It turns out it is actually perfect for my skintone - it blends very well with the skin and the scent reminded me of summer oils. And thankfully it washes off my hands easily and is not as orange as I worried it might be.

  • I cannot wait to drown myself in the wonderland of impossible fantasy and take the journey that pre-dates Dorothy and Toto’s arrival in the land of Oz. And I love that witches are as strong a character as the Wizard (who was never my favorite Oz character), most especially Theodora played by Mila Kunis. Was it any wonder that I couldn’t help myself and ordered Urban Decay‘s Theodora palette?
