Coastal Scents Make up Review

I am a little late on this trend but yesterday I finally decided to purchase some products from Coastal Scents. It's an American Company in Florida and I have heard so many good things about their cosmetics so I thought I would give them a go since I wanted to get a little more creative with my make up.

Here is what I bought:
Eyeshadow - 120 Palette Three $29.95 discounted promotional price $19.95

Concealer - Camo Quad Color Corrector $7.95
The mint green shade counteracts redness or pinkness caused from rosacea, blemishes, or capillaries around the nose and cheek areas. 
The pale yellow shade is used to conceal black, blue, or purple imperfections such as bruises. 
The lavender shade can be used to neutralize areas with excessive yellow pigmentation and corrects olive skin tones. 
The sky blue shade counteracts orange tones typically caused from uneven or excessive tanning or self-tanning.

Highlighter - Icy Rose sample for $0.49,  Shimmery, pale pink hue that adds luminosity

Make up Brush - Classic Detail Mini Synthetic brush, Classic Shadow Medium brush. Both  $2.49

Coastal Scents make ups are known to be highly pigmented, meaning really good colour pay off and sturdy consistency. (So you don't have to worry about your make up disappearing with your sweat and what not! Trust me this happened to me number of times...)

I think the pricing is really impressive too, 120 eye shadow colours for $19.95? Now that's an offer I don't wanna miss! But I was a little put off by the shipping and handling cost to Australia, $18.40
My order subtotal went from $33.40 to $51.80! I did suck it up and made the purchase because it would be much more expensive to buy similar products in Priceline or in department stores in Sydney.

Sydney Pole Dancers

Okay, so I started pole dancing. I know what your thinking.
A little too 'out there' and scandalous? Thinking of Kings Cross and sleazy clubs? Probably looking at the picture to the left and thinking "Oh my god, why would you do that?"
but I have to tell you I LOVE POLE DANCING!

Don't let the pole dancer stereotypes fool you, this does not involve skimpy string bikinis and fat guys throwing money at you.
When I found out that Pole dancing is the new body hardening, confidence boosting, fitness activity I had to try it out myself. I found a Pole Studio near by Chatswood (Studio Exclusive Pole dancing Tuition) and I went for a trial class one day. Feeling nervous and not sure of how everyone would treat me, I sheepishly but bravely stepped inside and instantly all my worries were washed away!
Nice spacious environment, very comforting, friendly smiles and really nothing to worry about. It's just like a dancing studio but with poles! I immediately signed up for the next term. I would recommend this studio hundred times and over. It's just so much fun and it gives you a serious work out (My body ached for days after that trial class, it was only 45 minutes and I enjoyed it, can you believe it? A work out you can enjoy! Now that's amazing)
So I suggest you girls try it out too! Go on, Don't be scared!

Sheinside & Romwe Comparison & Review

With these two viral companies everywhere on the internet/youtube right now I could be wrong but I have a feeling that Sheinside and Romwe is the same company. They come off as competitors but they are both located in the same area called Shenzhen in China and they are both advertising via Youtube by sending youtubers their products. Same free shipping world wide and LiveChat Help/Online Help in both websites and both companies don't seem to speak english much.



I have ordered from Sheinside before, I was mesmerised by their range of clothing and everything looked so promising, so there I was typing away my credit card number. But let me just say with all the waiting, trying to figure out what was happening with my order and their ridiculous exchange policies I was not happy. After I sent them an complaint email, Sheinside did offer me a 30% discount code but I never used it.
I just did not want to go through it all again.
So then when I turned to Romwe, it was like a nightmare flash back. Everything looked familiar! I did ask the Live chat help lady if they were the same company as Sheinside, she just replied 'No' and when I told her both websites and business structure looks very similar she just quit the chat. uhh...rude much? Well. Bad customer service from both companies, I don't recommend either of the businesses. If any of you had any positive experiences from these companies please let me know, I would love to read about it!

Modern Grunge/Soft Grunge Love!


For the past few months I have been really obsessed with 'Modern grunge/Soft grunge' type of clothing from accessories, shoes and hair pieces.

... and these bad boys, Unif Hellbounds has got me head over heels!
Bought from dollskill.com It has an enormous platform + heels I know it looks like one hell of a crazy ankle breaker but surprising enough, it is so comfy and easy to walk in or if your not a high heel type of girl, I am sure it would only take couple of practise to master these height booster babies.Seriously girls, the air seems fresher when you become 6 inches taller.
Even Nicki Minaj approves of them!
I have worn these out to Chatswood and Sydney City and it has always been an attention grabber, even on Mardi Gras!

Some details:
Colours available in - Black, Neon Pink, Baby Blue, Leopard
6 inch heel / 3 inch platform
Price - can vary between websites $250 ~ $300 (So worth the price!)
Can be bought from dollskillkarmaloopnastygalsolestruck
Lace up shoes with zipper on the size
True to size
