Maybelline Super BB & The Hyper Curl Volum’ Express mascara

Maybelline Super BB

The Maybelline Super BB and the Hyper Curl Volum’ Express mascara are two of my favourite purchases from my most recent Thailand shopping haul. I purchased both of them on a whim during one of my mega sprees at Eve&Boy. The Super BB originally caught my eye because the stand was insanely crowded by Thai teenagers who were practically ripping the product off the shelf. I decided on the Hyper Curl Volum’ Express because it was the first mascara I had seen which labelled as ‘easy wash’ something I knew my sensitive eyes would love.Β  Continue reading

IMG_1402

A Bangkok Beauty Haul and shopping guide to kick off 2016! And no, you aren’t having major dejavu. I managed to end up in Bangkok again (exactly one year later!) and of course there’s a beauty haul to prove it. We spent two solid days out exploring the city visiting malls, shopping squares and markets and it’s safe to say that my luggage Β came home quite a bit heavier as a result. Continue reading



How to plan your next holiday

holiday

Planning holidays is so exciting and at the moment I’m getting ready for a big trip to Vietnam. Since a lot of you followed my travels around Thailand I thought I’d share with you some tips on how to plan your next holiday on your own – it’s honestly not that hard! As well as being fun you can save so much money doing your own research and bookings and you are much more likely to end up seeing and doing things that really suit you. To start all you need to do is pick the place and have an idea of dates. Continue reading



Thailand Makeup Haul

IMG_0793 I am back for 2015, firstly with a Thailand makeup haul. As many of you know I spent the first three weeks of the year exploring three different cities in Thailand – and of course I did some shopping! Thailand is lucky to host some amazingly huge malls as well as a lot of makeup filled pharmacies and Sephora! I managed to get a few good products and quite a few things off my makeup wish list while I was there. It was so interesting looking at the different brands and products which haven’t made it to NZ shores yet. I also discovered my new favourite makeup shop… can anyone guess what it is?!

Where have I been? Thailand Travels and 2015

thailand collage So, where have I been? I promise all will be answered today, in this very post! But firstly hello everyone! I’ve missed you and I’ve missed blogging, however it has been harder than I thought it would be getting back into normal life and ‘reality’. 2015 has started off with adventure and masses of positivity for me.

Many of you know I spent the first three weeks in Thailand (AMAZING), now I am settling back into work and focusing on my friends, my babe and achieving some personal goals I have floating around in my mind. I’m turning 25 this year and I’ll be completely honest, it’s a bit scary. It seems like a strange in-between, not young, not old just in that grey area (but thank god not actually grey yet). Am I exaggerating and being a total mid-twenties Gen Y right now? Probably, but who cares!

Anyways, back to my travels, Thailand was incredible. It was the perfect mix of new experiences, culture and relaxation.

Firstly we arrived in Bangkok and Continue reading

Laura at the cove

Since summer is creeping around the corner – see, up there! Where I’m pointing in the distance! So I’ve decided to do a bit of a summer mini series. The plan is a post a week leading up to summer with a different focus each time. Today, I want to share with you my plans for the summer break! I’d love to know what you are all getting up to, whether you are having a big family Christmas, spending all your time off at the beach or heading to somewhere amazing for New Years. For me, my break starts in two and a bit weeks!

I am lucky to be in a position to get school holidays off, my last official day of work is the 9th of December and it is going to be all go from there! My time leading up to Christmas will hopefully be a mixture of preparation and relaxation. I’ll need to get my Christmas shopping done and also get organised for my big trip (more about that below!). But I also want to spend as much time as possible at the beach, catching up with friends and heading out to events – who else is going to Ragamuffin and Katy Perry? Continue reading
