Awesome Beauty Advent Calendars to Countdown Christmas 2014

12 Awesome Advent Calendars for 2014

Okay, I know it’s going to sound really strange but I’ve never heard of advent calendars until I moved to Australia in 2008. Growing up in Malaysia, we never had advent calendars and when I saw them in the UK, I’ve always thought that they were are actual paper calendars, which was why it was something I never questioned.

When I finally found out what they were, I thought it was a cute, novelty idea and last year I decided to give one a go. Cheapie me wouldn’t pay a lot for one so I, erm, got mine from Woolworths for the princely sum of AU$1.00 and enjoyed a tiny piece of chocolate a day till Christmas. :P

Read My Lips: Face of Australia Lip Paint Super Intense Colours

Face of Australia Lip Paint Super Intense Colours

I’m really low maintenance when it comes to lippies. A regular ol’ lipstick and lipgloss that doesn’t require me more work than just applying directly on the lips without the need for a lip brush is A-okay with me.

When the new Face of Australia Lip Paints landed on my desk for review, I wondered how I’ll need to apply this. The packaging reminded me of OCC Lip Tars. The reason I’ve not tried that popular brand is that I know I’ll need to use a lip brush with those crazy intensely opaque lippies. Thankfully, when I uncapped these Lip Paints, 1) they already come with a slanted tip which means all I need to do is glide them on the lips and 2) upon first swatches, these are not as intense as I expected them to be. It’s a good thing because if they really were like the OCC Lip Tars, I have a strong feeling I’m not going to like them.

My Backpack Story (And A Chance For You To Win One by Toffee!)

Toffee Centennial Backpack Giveaway

Growing up, I’ve always had backpacks. I carried backpacks to kindergarten, to primary school, to secondary school, to college, to university and on most holidays. These days, I see a lot of university students carrying totes and believe it or not, designer handbags (e.g. Louis Vuitton, Prada, etc) to school. Funny story: The first time I stepped into Louis Vuitton at Chadstone, I was shown a bag by a sales assistant who told me “it would be great for school!“.

Louis Vuitton. For school. Is it just me or is there something wrong with that sentence?

I didn’t know whether to be happy that she thought I was a student or to be insulted that she thought I’d carry such an expensive bag to school!

When Was The Last Time You Had A Pap Smear?

Pap Smear Reminder Letter

This week is National Cervical Cancer Awareness week in Australia so ladies, today’s post is just for you.

So … pap smears. You know what? I used to think that pap smears are the yuckiest and most uncomfortable thing I’ve ever had to subject my body to (surgeries don’t really count, since all of the ones I’ve had had me knocked out good) until I had a mammogram. Yeah, try having a mammogram when you’re young and still have quite *ahem* bouncy boobs. You’ll be wishing you had 10 pap smears instead!

When was the last time you had a pap smear?
