My Nails Are Officially On Vacation


So yes I'll admit it...I am an official acrylic/fake nail addict. I absolutely LOVE the feeling of having sexy looking claws, (well...not too long of course...). Though recently my natural nails have become extremely weak/thin and brittle. They are even starting to peel...not good I know. Therefore I have little choice but to spring immediate action! I need a miracle.

Today I went into my all time favorite shop, Myer, (as I had a $50 gift card to spend, yay). I thought, "I must put my $$$ to good use", so I took a little stroll down the nail polish section of the store. I came across the 'Sally Hansen' - Nailgrowth Miracle Salon Strength Treatment' polish. It guarantees 30% longer nails in 5 days!*. So I'm crossing my fingers...and toes :)

The product costed me $18.95 all up. Which when I think of it, isn't cheap for nail polish. So lets hope that it does what the package promises. Each day I'll give you all an update on how my nails appear...wish me luck! 

Let the 5 day challenge begin! :)

The great thing about these are the amazing range of colours and finishes'. Whether you're into a sparkly look, or the more natural end result. There will always be one to fit your style.

Another positive of this product is...HOW AMAZING IT SMELLS. Each differ in scent slightly, though most of mine smell exactly like cookies...yes COOKIES.
The gloss is heavily pigmented so application is incredibly easy. Though best of all is the 'doe foot' applicator.
What I love in a lip gloss is: wearability & shimmer/shine, this range of  

Each lip gloss contains 5.5ml of sparkly goodness...what more could you possibly ask for! :) 
Light source is 2 x high bright white LEDs. Batteries included (non replaceable)

So trust me...get in with the craze. Buy up big with the utterly fabulous Sportsgirl 'Lighten Up' lip gloss range.

Moroccanoil Treatment - 100ml
Hi everyone!

Just a quick entry for you today. Introducing the magnificent Moroccanoil product line.

I absolutely love it. I simply apply a small amount (size of a 5 cent piece max) to either slightly damp or dry hair...and BAZINGA! My hair feels instantly luscious, without being weighed down and oily.

On the Maroccanoil website it clearly outlines the varies products they offer. From the:

  • Hair treatment (I purchased this)
  • Hair treatment - Light
  • Frizz control spray
  • Restorative hair mask

Some of these products come in different sizes, depending on what salon you may purchase from.

Moroccanoil Product Range

Final Star Rating 


The original Morocconoil treatment I purchased costed me around $52.50. Which may seem a little pricy, though the 100ml bottle has lasted me ages. As you only need to use a VERY small amount each time you apply to your hair. Plus...COME ON PEOPLE...this is your hair we are talking about here! It can be a girl's pride and joy. So go on, take the plunge. Make sure you try out something from the Moroccanoil range. I'm sure you will not be disappointed.

Photo taken with Ipod
Today I decided to go for a little shopping spree in Perth City. Unfortunately I didn't purchase as much as I's originally hoped. Though, I did stumble across a new quirky store by the name of T2.

At first sight, the T2 store appeared modern, funky and welcoming...which is an A+ in my view! Though that was only based on the exterior aesthetics. When I entered the store I was absolutely flabbergasted!

From the overall set up, the 'taste-testing' section, the amazing service, but best of all the scents coming from every corner of the room...omg it was absolutely fascinating.

I believe myself to be a 100% "coffeeholic". Hot chocolates, and normally tea never can compare. But...yes there's a but, T2 has officially changed my view on the wide world of tea. :)

"T2 offers Australia’s biggest range of beautiful, fragrant teas from all around the world."

As you can see in the image above, I didn't go to nuts. I simply wanted to try out some different options. So next time I visit T2 I can by bulk on what I love best! I purchased the following:
  • Chocolate loose black tea (100g) - $12.75
  • Mesh ball (small) - $5.50
  • Silicone scoop (white) - $3.00

The sweet lady at the front counter allowed me to take home two sample flavours, Cinnamon and Creme Brulee, YUM! Can't wait to try them out.

I strongly suggest all of you "coffeeholics" out there to try out the T2 range. I can almost guarantee you that you'll be changed for life!

My New Little Beauty

Last Thursday evening I treated myself (for the 1st time) to a brand new compact SLR camera...yes you read that correctly, a "compact" SLR quality camera. FINALLY!

I have been waiting so long to be able to buy a 'SLR quality' compact camera. One which I could easily pop into my handbag and go go go!

The brand new Nikon Coolpix S9300, is a revolutionary compact 'snap-&-go' digital camera.  

  • 18x optical zoom
  • CMOS image sensor
  • 3 inch high resolution LCD monitor with wide viewing angle
  • GPS
  • Full 1080p HD movie recording with stereo sound
  • 3D photography....yes...3D!

Power and portability blend perfectly into the COOLPIX S9300. Photograph everything from the nightlife in Cancun to the vibrant details of a flower market with the S9300's 18x wide-angle zoom. Create stunning low-light photos without a flash, thanks to its 16.0 megapixel CMOS sensor. Shoot with high-speed framing rates, and record Full HD (1080p) movies at the touch of a button. Plus, built-in GPS provides an accurate and detailed diary of where you've been!

Even though I've only had it a relatively short time, already, I absolutely love it. Everything from the clarity of the images, versatility and its compact build.

I was pleasantly surprised how amazing the quality of the photo's turned out. Below are a few examples. (Click to zoom)

Flash On - Dark 
Super Close-Up (Macro)
Close-Up (Macro)

All up, the Nikon Coolpix S9300 costed me around $435
(I purchased mine from Harvey Norman, Malaga, WA) Which is pretty pricy when it comes to a compact 'snap-&-go' camera, but putting that behind me, the S9300 is a fantastic choice for someone who wants a pure point-&-shoot experience, which will create an image to remember. 

Colour Variations
The Nikon Coolpix S9300 comes in four different colour variations, silver, red, blue and black (I own the black, as shown in the top image).

The S9300 caters to photographers who'd rather spend their time looking at the sights rather than coping with the subtleties of shutter speeds, apertures, and ISO sensitivities, the Coolpix S9300 offers a generous 20 scene modes that let you tailor the look of your images.
Which is EXACTLY what I wanted!
I am so happy with my new purchase, and I strongly recommend this camera to anyone of any age. are still in my good books.

Introducing Scarlet - The newest beauty in the GHD collection

GHD Scarlet Collection


RRP: $259.00


OMG everyone, Introducing the fabulous Limited Edition GHD Scarlet. This little beauty is one of my 'must haves' of the year/decade.
Previously, GHD has released numerous models of the 'GHD straightener'. 
For example:


I previously owned the the 'GHD gold classic styler', used it on a daily was amazing with a capital 'A'. Out of every other brand of straightener I've had, the GHD has been the best. Below are just a few reasons why:
  • Professional Finish
  • Smoother plates
  • Cooler, lighter body
  • Ceramic heaters and contoured plates
  • Sleep mode

Recently I purchased the new Limited Edition GHD Scarlet...and not regretted it one bit! I absolutely LOVE it to pieces. It makes my hair feel so shiny and voluminous, giving me confidence like nothing else! Here is where I purchased it from:

One thing I fell in love with was the guaranteed warranty. 
GO TO: :)

Usually I will either straighten or curl my hair, the GHD does it to perfection. Here is the result of curling & straightening my hair with the product:

Curled hair

Straight hair

Best of all, the 'sleep mode'. I hate nothing more than forgetting to turn off my appliances, especially ones that involve 'heat'.
Therefore the GHD is my miracle product!
I also love the fact that it is so much lighter than other leading brands. Which is easier on your muscles :)

For a simple tutorial on curling or straightening your hair, here are the links to a couple of Youtube clips:


To me my hair is like my sad as that sounds. So to have such a fantastic product in my possession is tantalising. To the point where I've gone 'gaga' over it!
