The A to Z of me!

Saw some other bloggers doing this and thought I would join in on the fun!!

A -Age – 24.. eeek! That sounds so old. I won't lie to you, the fact that I'll be 25 next year freaks me out a little. :P

B - Best holiday – Probably the trip up north I took with my family when I was 7. It started a tradition - we go there every year! And now we even own a section there. Eeeee! :D

C - Chores you hate – Scrubbing the shower, the fumes from the cleaner always gives me a headache! I really need a natural alternative that actually works.

D - Dogs – 3! Saprana who is a boxer cross, and 2 Swedish Valhunds; Quileute and Chinook.

E - Essential Start to Your Day- Breakfast!! Dad always told me that it's the most important meal of the day - I actually can't survive without it.

F - Favourite colour – Purple and turquoise, but black is my favourite colour to wear!

G - Gold or silver – Silver. I feel like it just suits my skintone more. But I do have some gold jewellery that I adore. :P

H - Height – I'm short as! Barely 5 ft 4. I'm the shortest in my family and I have to say I don't like it! I'd love to be taller!!

I - Instruments you play – I kinda play the guitar.. or I used to atleast. I have an acoustic and an electric that both sit around being neglected. :(

J - Job title – Pharmacy Assistant. That sounds a bit flasher than "Shop girl" doesn't it? Hahaha. I also do my freelancing on the side (when I have the time!). I love my job though, my co-workers are amazing and have all become good friends of mine.

K-Kids- One day! I have to find the right man first, hahaha.

L - Live – New Zealand! Lived here all my life, and don't really intend to live anywhere else. I would however like to move out of Auckland - I'm really not a city girl at heart.

M - Mother's name – Lisa. I love my Mummy! <3

N - Nickname – Diddle and Kittykai are the most popular ones, but I have many.

O - Overnight hospital stays – Haven't had any! I was rushed to hospital in an ambulance once for my allergies, but didn't have to stay overnight.

P - Pet Peeves – People who smell bad. Ugh. It seriously makes me want to throw up. :P

Q - Quote from a film- "I'm gonna take a pillowcase, fill it full of bars of soap and beat the shit out of you!" Step Brothers. Seriously one of my favourite movies of all time. :P

R - Right or left handed – Right handed.

S - Siblings – Camille, my awesome sister! She's my best bud and I love her muchly.

T - Time you wake up – 6am-ish.

U - Underwear – What kind of lady do you take me for? Hahaha.

V - Vegetable you hate – Corn. Ew.

W - What makes you run late – I'm one of those people who leaves everything until the last minute, so when it's time to go, I'm still running around trying to find my watch/keys/bag etc.

X - X-rays you've had – Arm, ankle, teeth, sinuses. The sinus scan thingy freaked me out so much. Didn't really realise I got claustrophobic until then. Hahaha.

Y - Yummy food you make – Cookies, muffins, cakes... I'm a better baker than I am cook. :P

Z - Zoo animal – Tigers and turtles. And phoenixes. >_>

Well that was fun, I wanna know more about you guys too so.. TAG! You're it!

Mail of the week! 9 - 15 November

I ordered the first two books from the "Symply Too Good To Be True" series from Trademe the other day, and they've arrived already! Keen to try out these recipes as soon as possible.

Seeds from Yates!
Wasn't expecting these to show up in my letterbox... not entirely sure how I got them. I know I'm a part of the Yates club so maybe I received them as part of that.
Anyway, we will definitely be planting these in our vege garden.. or atleast, my sister will be since my allergies have been playing up again. Haha!

Also wasn't expecting this little pack! Back in September, it was Cervical Cancer Screening Awareness month, and to celebrate this they were running a promotion where they gave away little gifts like this! I was lucky enough to get one of these, which includes:
  • Carefree Actifresh Oxygen Liners
  • Stayfree Ultra Thin Regular Pads
  • Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub
  • Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream
All in a cute little pink and white polka dot bag!

Can't wait to see what next week brings!
Thanks for viewing!

Fave Five!

It's getting warmer and warmer every day! Ahhh, I can't wait til Summer.
  1. Lush Soap

    Why has it taken me so long to discover these? My favourite scent at the moment is Angel's Delight. It's one of their christmas soaps, and I think I might have to stock up on it. :P

  2. LMFAO - Sexy and I know it

    I actually can't stop singing this song. It's stuck in my head 24/7. So funny!

  3. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel eyeliner

    Got this for my birthday and am really enjoying using it. The brush that came with it is actually really good too, which was a pleasant surprise! I think I prefer Bobbi Brown gel eyeliners to MAC Fluidlines.. just seem better quality.

  4. My pandora!

    Just started wearing it again.. I really love it. Pretty much all the charms on it have been bought by my family - for birthdays and christmases, and I think it's one of the prettiest pieces of jewellery I own.

  5. Living Nature Skincare

    I might actually do a review on this. This was another birthday present that my parents bought me from the Living Nature shop up in Kerikeri. I think the whole lot cost around $50, and I have to say that I think it was worth every cent! My skin feels awesome.

NOTD: Nudey Rose

This is most definitely my favourite Konad stamp. I can't help but love the way it looks with everything, it's so pretty! It also livens up an otherwise boring nail polish, haha.

The base colour I used is Revlon Peach Smoothie. It was the first time I'd actually used this, and it was a bit of a disappointment. I could not get it to apply smoothly - it went on streaky, and what's worse is that it smelt disgusting... I should've known that scented nail polish wasn't a good idea.
On the plus side, the colour is quite nice and summery and you can't really notice how streaky it is when you Konad on top of it.

Mail of the week! 1 - 8 November

I know other bloggers post their Mail Of The Week, so I thought I might start doing this too! Because opening packages is ridiculously fun xD

I love MegsMakeup! I got this package when I redeemed 250 points, pretty exciting huh?
Closer look at the Napoleon products:

Thought you might like to see a couple of swatches.
Urban Decay Tinted Moisturiser - not rubbed in:

And this is how it looks when it is rubbed in:

Here’s the Napoleon Eyeliner, it’s such a pretty gold:

The Napoleon Lip Veil is nice:

But, didn’t show up that great in this photo:

And trying to take a photo of this Urban Decay eyeshadow swatch was just a joke – it refused to show up! Not very impressed with the eyeshadow unfortunately..

My ASOS swimsuit order arrived! Yay!! Was the first time I actually ordered from them and am really happy with the whole experience. It always makes me sad that it’s cheaper to buy swimsuits online from an overseas retailer than buy one in my own country though…

Tea Samples from Twinnings! My sister will probably end up with these as I don’t drink enough tea myself. :P

Ahhh. I love getting packages, it’s one of my favourite things!
Thanks for viewing!

Fave Fiiiive

I may have forgotten to post last week, oops..
But I have exciting news!! My parents, sister and I have bought a section up north (in a place called Houhora!). It's a 5 acre block that we'll eventually live on one day, but until then, it's going to be our holiday home. It's what I've wanted for as long as I can remember and I can't even begin to express how happy and excited I am that we've finally got it!!

Now lets get onto my favourite things from the past week..
  1. Lush Lip Scrub in Bubblegum

    This is what I've been needing for SOOO long. It does an amazing job at exfoliating my lips and tastes so good.

  2. Armani Code Perfume

    Love the smell of this! It's replaced Flowerbomb as my Number 1 favourite, for sure. I can't help wearing it every single day. >_>

  3. My kittens!!

    We breed beautiful litte persian kittens and this is just one of them that we have at the moment! Isn't she a little cutie!?

  4. Feather Earrings

    My sister actually made these for me for my birthday back in September. I get soo many comments on them, they're so cute!

  5. Lucas Papaw Ointment

    It's always a favourite, I'm not gonna lie. I just bought a new one on the weekend, it feels so good using this after using my Lush lip scrub. <3
