Fave Five!

I had to have today off work, to have my latest lot of injections, so I thought I would start my new series - Fave Five! I'm basically just going to be listing my five favourite things from the past week, I was going to do it monthly - but then I might not get around to it at all!
  1. The mighty All Blacks!! Never in my life have I been so proud to be a kiwi. I'm so stoked that we won the Rugby World Cup 2011 on Sunday night. Good on ya boys!

    Gosh they're a handsome bunch aren't they? BONUS! :P
  2. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs!

    This stuff is actually amazing. It looks surprisingly natural and gives me just enough colour so I don't look like Casper the ghost. Highly recommend!
  3. Bangles from Equip

    These were actually on sale for $5.00, which is why I bought them really. I hardly ever buy jewellery that isn't on sale. Hahaha. :P I'm a huge fan of turquoise - it makes me feel really summery.

  4. Pulp Shoes from Hannahs

    I confess.. I actually saw these in the latest Hannahs catalogue and immediately fell in love with them. They were $59.99 – which is pretty expensive really… but I couldn’t resist! I was possessed by the shoe demon! Lucky I love them so much. :P

  5. Satsuma Body Butter from The Body Shop

    Have you ever smelt this? It’s amaaaazing. The thing I’ve always loved about The Body Shop body butters is that they smell just as good on, as they do in the pots! Passionfruit was my previous favourite, but since they’ve stopped selling it in New Zealand (and maybe the rest of the world?) – I’ve now moved onto this. Loving it!

Thanks for viewing!!

NOTD: Pink Leopard!

I've been pretty lazy with my nails lately - actually pretty lazy in general, I'm not gonna lie! Well enough is enough, so to liven up my hands I decided on hot pink leopard print.


Here's what I used:
  • Two coats of Milani Neon nail polish in Pink Hottie
  • One coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holographic nail polish in Chunky Holo Candy
  • Konad black with the leopard print from m57
  • Clear nail polish as a top coat
I actually really love this combination. It's so girly and cute. Something about pink reminds me that summer is on the way.. such an exciting thought!

On another note, tonight is the Rugby World Cup 2011 final!! GO THE ALL BLACKS!!

Thanks for viewing!

Strawberrynet Haul!

Hi gals!
Mum let me order some stuff from StrawberryNet for my birthday! It was so exciting!! I decided to pick up some Limited Edition items that I'd missed out on when they were originally released.


Wooo! How cool does everything look?

First up was the MAC Noble Knights Lash and Line Kit from their 'A Tartan Tale' collection. I was so gutted to miss out on this first time round, so I definitely had to get it this time!

Included in this pack is:
  • Blitz & Glitz Fluidline
  • Teal Pigment
  • Zoomlash Mascara
  • 209SE Eyeliner Brush
Next was the MAC Smoky Thrillseekers Pigment/Glitter kit, also from 'A Tartan Tale'.


Included in this:
  • Reflects Blackened Red Glitter
  • Naked Pigment
  • Jigs & Jives Pigment
  • Blue Brown Pigment
  • Dark Soul Pigment
Then the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner Duo.

Included in this:
  • Black Ink gel eyeliner
  • Sepia Ink gel eyeliner
  • Mini ultra fine eyeliner brush
Up next is the Bobbi Brown eye shadow in Ivy. Can't wait to try this out!!

Then the Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Crystal Pink, I love this! Wish it was in the nice packaging though :(

And finally, the free gift - Calvin Klein Lipstick in Heavenly. Still haven't tried this, but looks pretty!

I would've taken swatches of everything, but that'll have to wait til I do the individual reviews - my arms are too sore from the injections :(

Thanks for viewing dolls!

Allergies, Birthday, Work and more work...

Hi dolls!
I'm about to do a strawberrynet haul, but first of all I thought I'd give you an update of what's been going on in Christel-Land lately. :P

Some of you might not know that I'm an allergy freak. I have chronic hayfever, chronic sinusitis and asthma. To give you an idea of how intense my allergies can be, I'm on four times the recommended dosage of antihistamines - everyday! Hahaha. Crazy. :P

In December last year I started seeing an immunologist (allergy specialist) and he's helped me out more than I can even explain. He's seriously amazing, and it freaks me out when I think about how bad I was before I got his help!

Earlier this year, he recommended I try desensitization, which is basically where they inject you with the allergens that set off your allergies. Over time, you build up an immunity to these allergens. It's a really slow process - takes around 3 years, and in the beginning it is really full on. I have to have 2 injections every week for the first 14 weeks, then every 2 weeks, 3 weeks and eventually every month.

At the moment I'm on week 4, just had the injections this morning. They're getting more and more painful and irritating every week - I just have to tell myself that they'll be worth it in the end!!

It was also my birthday on 16 September! I turned 24, so now I feel really old. Hahaha. It's also why there's a strawberrynet haul post coming up! :P

Other than the injections and my birthday, the only other thing that has been consuming my life has been work. Because the injections make me tired, work has felt a lot harder these past few weeks! Hoping I settle back into a good routine soon..

Thanks for viewing dolls, about to take pics for this haul post - so stay tuned!
