Hello my lovelies!

Not long now is it… school holidays are quickly coming to a close and that means it’s time to get prepped for school. Now as a member of the female gender I find that I feel much more relaxed about school if I know that I have a sort of ‘emergency kit’ in my bag, because some days you just never know. Want to know what items to stuff in your makeup bag to keep beauty-related stress to a minimal this school year? Then read on ladies!  Continue reading

Back to School : Locker Essentials

Hey there my lovelies!

If you’re a student like me you probably cringed reading the title of this post. Back-to-School time already? Ugh, the holidays are never long enough are they? Oh well, it’s time to suck it up and get on with the organising and to help you out through this stressful and nerve-racking time i’ve decided to post a series of ‘Back to School’ articles this week to help my fellow students out. Due to this being my last year at school I thought i’d really go all out, so they’re going to be quite thorough posts, I hope you find them useful!

Anyway, let’s get to it shall we? Continue reading

Lost in Translation – Why you should partake in an exchange program

switzerland

Hello my lovelies!

What a wild ride it has been for me the past two months. I am now on my way back to sun-shiny Australia from freezing cold but lovely Switzerland and i’ve got a whole lot to talk about. I could really go on for a million years about what happened, what weird and wonderful things I saw and did and well if I did that it would become quite boring. Instead of doing that, i’m just going to chuck in a list of reasons why you should partake in an exchange program or simply travel somewhere very far away from where you currently live! Without further a due, here is the list. Continue reading

Nail Tattoos – Whaaaaaat?

nail art

Hello my lovelies!

Most ladies (being generic here, don’t kill me) love painting or decorating their nails. Personally, I find the whole process quite frustrating and difficult and it tends to turn out horribly. Therefore, I either stray away from complicated designs and opt for neutral coloured polish or just do absolutely nothing to them. Although, when I set my eyes on a packet of ‘Nail Tattoos’ for the first time I knew that I just had to try it.

The thought of ‘tattoo-ing’ on nail art brought back nostalgic memories of getting temporary tattoos in bubble gum packets and covering my arms in them as a kid. It seemed like a pretty straight-forward technique ; peel off the plastic, put the sticky side on your nail and press a damp cotton ball on top for ten seconds and then once it’s set paint over the top in a clear polish to set. So, I hopped to it and gave it a go.

In all honesty I wasn’t that happy with the outcome. Because of the cardboard backing it’s hard to get the piece of paper to stay in place on your curved nail. These were definitely more of a challenge to apply than ‘Nail Wraps’ which I absolutely adore!

Also I found that because my chosen design, a black skyline of a city, ended up just looking like I had cracked/worn off nail polish. Not very nice at all.

For the price of 12CHF I picked a pack of 20 nail tattoos in different sizes with the skyline design, and I also picked up another pack which I will compare to this one. I really feel like nail appliqués and all that are great products especially for lazy people like me who get tired of waiting for layers of polish to dry, but perhaps I just didn’t like these ones because of it all being one colour and looking just like cracked nail polish.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this quick ‘review’ sort of post. Have you ever used nail appliqués or tattoos before? Please share your experience below if you have!

Until next time,

That is so fetch… Gretchen Wieners comes to life in the form of bling

Hey there my lovelies!

What are your thoughts on that classic chick-flick ‘Mean Girls’? Personally, I adore it, along with many other teens my age. It’s kind of a slumber party essential. Now owning a copy of the film isn’t the only way you can get your 90’s nostalgia fix, because as most of the world have already come to realise, there is a jewellery collection being released in February dedicated to the likes of Gretchen Weiners – how fetch!
