Online Shopping

Online Shopping: Wanted by women worldwide for questioning.

If I ever get my hands on the embodiment of online shopping I would first start the interrogation with, "Where the hell have you embezzled my savings, you sneaky little brat??!!"

Anyway, please click the link below. It will take you to a delightful little post which further discusses the dangers of online shopping.

eye see: Online Shopping: If I don't see it, it doesn't exi...: This is a woeful tale. One of a young woman's struggle to stabilise her finances and control consumerist impulses. It doesn't end well... ...

That's truely inspired, darling!

What's that you say? Another inspiration mix? Heck yes, it is!

Bad Product and Mini Shopping Spree

Hi all!

Today I went out shopping to spoil myself after working so hard all easter and because I'm finally not sick anymore :)

As you may know by now, I love Priceline, so of course I had to go there!

One product that caught my eye was the Innoxa skin care range. They had testers available so I used the Vitamin Enriched Lotion SPF15 (for dry to normal skin) just a smidge on the back of my hand. I just want to see the texture, smell, absorbancy and residue. Regardless of what I thought, I wasn't going to buy it just because I already had alot of items including a moisturiser that I wanted to purchase.

So happy I didn't get this product because it caused a massive irritation to the skin which I tested it on. It's still itchy and red several hours later and the product is definately washed off by now. I'm so thankful it was just a spot on my hand and not my whole face.... :/

Anyway, I won't bore you with details of what I bought but I just wanted to share my experience with the Innoxa moisturizer and let you all know that I do not recommend this product.

Take care
Annaliza :)

March/April Beauty Favourites

Hi all!
I haven't had alot of time to check out new products lately so I've mostly been sticking with old favourites and in some cases, I've also been re-discovering old favourites.

Here are some old favourites I've rediscovered:

Nivea fruity shine lip balm (strawberry)

As I've stated previously, I love lip balm. One thing I love even more is TINTED lip balm. Trust me, it makes a difference. Plus it smells like candy :P

Palmer's cocoa butter formula: moisturizing body oil
I have dry skin, so I moisurise daily. With the colder weather setting in, my regular moisturizer just wasn't making the grade. This has been my saviour. It doesn't leave any residue, just soaks right in, and leaves my skin with a nice silky sheen.

New products I've come to love:

Clinique even better foundation
This foundation not only matches my skin colour pefectly, but also my skin type. It makes my skin look so great on it's own. I don't even really need concealer or anything. Not to mention its staying power. I could wear this morning, noon and night without having to do any touch-ups. 

B collection by Bloom nail polish
This is one of my favourite nail polish brands. The quality is up there with the likes of O.P.I. They come in a huge range of colours all named after cities of the world. My favourites at the moment are Luxembourg and Amsterdam.

That's all I can think of right now. If I think of any more, I'll post it at a later date.
Good night!!
