Winter essentials

1 Jul

In Australia winter has come and the temperature is dropping, heaters begin to turn on and it’s freezing outside.
Hi everyone! I’m going to tell you about some products I recommend for wintertime. (Teen/tween girl)

❄ Baby lips lip balm

Maybelline New York have a range of lipbalms called “baby lips” there are many types ranging from clear flavoured ones to tinted lipstick-like lip balms.
I’m collecting them at the moment and I have Mango pie, antioxidant berry, menthol and berry pink glow. The price for these are around $3.50 to $4.00 depending on where you buy it.

❄ Bedsocks or slippers

There are a WIDE range of slippers and bedsocks from retail shops such as target, Kmart and big W. They are comfy and soft and amazingly warm. I’m more of a fan of bedsocks compared to slippers but they’re both good for winter. Slippers can range from the prices $5.00 – $20.00 depending on what type you buy and where you buy them. As for bedsocks they are ranging from pieces as low as $2.00 – 10.00.

❄ moisturiser

Moisturisers are an all year rounder essential but you skin can get dry in winter if you’re going to be layering and staying near heaters. Also during winter you fall sick easily and your skin becomes really dry whilst being sick so you MUST have a moisturiser of some sort. I have to literally wear moisturiser every day because I have dry skin! Moisturisers come in different price ranges depending on the size and brand.

❄ pocket tissues

I don’t know if you call them pocket tissues or travel tissues but they are the same thing. During this time of year colds come around and tissues are a must have. During teens/Tweens busy lifestyles we don’t have time to bring a box of tissues so what I do is keep some in my bag and If I have planned to go somewhere, the night before I make sure to put some tissues in the bag I’m bringing. These pocket tissues come in multipacks and the can OBVIOUSLY fit in your pocket.

DIY Project – Galaxy Shoes

2 Apr

Hi! There’s been a galaxy shoe trend going around you tube and I saw a few videos and managed to memorise how to make them so I put them into my own words so you can learn how to make it!

How To Make Galaxy Shoes

What You’ll need:

  • Plum or Dark purple acrylic paint
  • Navy Blue acrylic paint
  • Light pink acrylic paint
  • Mid blue acrylic paint
  • Light blue acrylic paint
  • White acrylic paint
  • Silver glitter paint
  • 3 triangle 3D sponges
  •  2 rectangle sponges
  • Black canvas shoes (You can buy cheap ones at Kmart or Target)
  • Sticky Tape
  • Papertowels
  • 2 plates
  • clean nailpolish brush or any tiny brush

How To Make:

1) Get your shoes and and put a small squeeze of paint onto your plate. Put all the Blues onto one plate and the pinks and purples on the other. Keep the glitter in it’s pot. Take out the laces of your shoe.

2) On the shoe at the bottom there is a white part which is connected to the sole. Tape the whole of that part so paint doesn’t get onto it. this will make it easier when you clean it up, it also makes it easier to paint without worrying about getting paint onto the small area.

3) With the dark blue paint and your triangle sponge, wipe off some of your paint onto a papertowel so it doesn’t look to bright and strong. Dab it onto a small section of the shoe do the same thng with the medium blue. Make the two colours blend with each other. Repeat the step but with the purples and the light blue until the whole shoe is covered.

4) With the pink you only sponge a little bit in one of the lighter spots to blend it in then with the thin brush draw a little star on top of that with the white. You can do a few small ones around it. To finish off splatter some of the glitter onto the shoe.

5) Wait for it to dry then once it’s dry take off the tape and put the shoelaces back in the you are done! 🙂

Supre springvale clearance outlet review

17 Feb

Yesterday my dad, sister and I went to the Supre springvale clearance outlet to do some shopping, the place is a little stuffy on a hot day but it’s not too bad.

In Broadmedows there’s a bigger Clearance Outlet that I haven’t been to yet though the Springvale one is really good. At all stores the sizes range from 3XS – XXL just like the normal stores but this time it’s easier to find your size. For me, yesterday I found everything I wanted in my size which is really hard if I got to Southland or Chadstone because I’m a 3xs or xxs.

You can find stuff for winter and stuff for Summer. Every item is cheaper than normal Supre stores and there’s some items that are from last season. There’s your essentials ranging from the price of $2.50-$5.00 so you can buy quite alot. At the moment there’s a half price sale there so I managed to buy another top like the Panda one but with 3 owls, I got it for $6.00 so the %50 off was really good seeing yesterday I got it at the Southland store for $8.00 and it’s usually $12.00. I also bought a pair of patterned leggings for the price of $3.75, in the factory outlet it’s usually $7.50 and in other Supre stores it’s $20.00. There were many patterns ranging from Aztec to Flags to bright coloured patterns.

There’s many racks of clothing around the whole store. I recommend this to people who want clothing bargains. This store is located in the next busy street from the Sringvale Ikea though the address will be below 😉

Supre Springvale Clearance Outlet Address:

New Stuff for Chinese new Year

9 Feb

I’m part Chinese so I get to celebrate Chinese new Year. I’ve aleready planned what to use my money for – put it in my bank account to save for an IPad mini. Dad says it’s good luck to have new stuff so Clothes Shopping!

The rose,diomond,pearl ring

The rose,diamond,pearl ring

If you’ve read one of my recent posts this is the rose ring I was talking about. I’m wearing this tomorrow with a denim dress. I got this from Kmart yesterday from the clearance section for jewelery at kmart. This is a cute ring to wear with anything girly, you could also wear just the rose, just the pearl or just the diamond. They sell rings similar to this at Lovisa, Diva and Equip for around $5-10 so $0.50 is really cheap. If you’re not really the kind of person who wears pink they have another one with the rose that’s black and the diamond in silver.

Denim Dress from GAP kids

IMG_4181[1]

At the start of the year my mum and dad bought me this denim dress from GAP kids to wear for the summer. I decided to save this for Chinese New year seeing that I’ve worn all my new clothes 😉 I like the lace detail at the bottom of the dress and it’s also very comfterbale its not too short for older girls and not too kiddish either.

I also got a pair of Pajamas (no photo shown) that says Sweet Dreams on it. It came in a two pack so one for me and one for my sister. It’s a really cute summer pajama set which includes 1x sleeveless top, 1x short sleeve top, 2x pairs of shorts. Igot the short sleeve and the sleeveless says Believe in your dreams. There was a sale at Target where the pj’s were $16.00.
