Shu Uemura's Girls Night Out Blogger Event! πŸ’„ // VLOG

Soooooo… This vlog was meant to go up a few months ago, but better late than never, hey…? Shu Uemura recently blew out 50 candles on their world renowned Cleansing Oil, and what better excuse for a party! 

The team at Shu invited myself and all my beauty blogger friends for a girls night out, complete with cupcakes, makeovers and even Japanese drummers! 

Hope you guys enjoy this beauty blogger event vlog, plus there are more vids coming very soon πŸ’–

VLOG // The Most Famous Hot Chocolate Cafe in Melbourne!

It feels like it has been AGES since I last uploaded a vlog! This day out was filmed back around June, but I’ve been a total busy bee getting my Japan vlog series up for you guys that this one just took a back seat! Hope you guys enjoy it nonetheless :)

In this vlog I went to Mork Chocolate with Bii from BiiBiiBeauty because we heard that they had a menu of fancy hot chocolates that went viral on Facebook (sounds like something Melbourne would have - all my Melbournians watching this will know what I mean!). But were they worth the price and hour long queue? Watch and find out!

I will always get the warm and fuzzies every time I watch this video πŸ’–

In May 2017 I spent two weeks travelling Kyoto and Tokyo with my best friend and it will forever be one of the best fortnights in my life! I hope you enjoy the highlights reel and if you have any questions about anything I did, feel free to leave me a comment below! More than happy to help out with more information.

Plus, every day of the trip was vlogged, so you can check out the full 10 episode Japan Vlog Series below!

DIY // How to Make Custom ADIDAS & GUCCI Inspired Floral Sneakers!

I pretty much made this DIY video because I couldn’t afford to buy a real pair of floral Gucci sneakers πŸ˜…

I’ve been wearing sneakers a lot lately and have wanted to get a pair of pink Adidas Superstars (achievable, but impossible to find) or Gucci sneakers (simply, NOT POSSIBLE) for a while, so I decided to just combine the two and make my own!

And I think we can agree that a $50 DIY is a lot friendlier on your wallet than EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS (seriously, who are these people who can afford this and do they make donations?! 😭). Hope you guys enjoy this video!

// For this DIY you’ll need:
  • A pair of plain white sneakers 
  • A thick and thin velvet ribbon in a colour of your choice 
  • Scissors 
  • Hot glue gun & glue sticks 
  • Embroidery appliquΓ©s of your choice 
P.S: If you’re wondering why my hair is suddenly a lot longer in this video, it’s because I filmed it before I went to Japan!

JAPAN VLOG 10 // BEST Souvenir Shopping Spot in Tokyo & Visiting the ELLE CAFE!

It’s the last daily vlog from my Japan trip 😒

Thank you to everyone who have come along on this journey with me, and I will definitely go back to Japan in the near future! It’s easily my favourite place, so I will 100% return again and again and again. Plus, stay tuned - the next video will be a Japan haul and a GIVEAWAY full of my favourite Japanese beauty products!

But for now, in this Japan vlog we visited the gorgeous Elle Cafe in Shibuya (since WHEN have magazines had their own cafes?!), and spent the afternoon in Asakusa going souvenir shopping in Nakamise and getting our fortunes told at Senso-ji Temple. Hope you guys enjoy this vlog!

JAPAN VLOG 9 // HEDGEHOG CAFE & Seeing MT FUJI At The Shibazakura Flower Festival!

Um, so cat cafes are SOOOO yesterday…

Jokes, but in all seriousness, I went to an actual HEDGEHOG CAFE in Roppongi Tokyo where you literally get to play with and feed hedgehogs! They are so cute and cheeky, and it’s one of the most unique experiences you can get in Japan.

In this daily life vlog I also saw Mt Fuji! We travelled about two hours out of Tokyo on rural trains to the Shibazakura Flower Festival and while the festival itself was a bit of a bust (our fault for going on the LAST day!) seeing Mt Fuji more than made up for it. Hope you guys enjoy this vlog!

First up in today’s vlog, we headed to Harajuku to explore the famous Takeshita Street (you know, the one famous for the adorably costumed Harajuku girls!) and visit Totti Candy Factory to try one of their super famous (and SO Insta-worthy) giant rainbow cotton candy. We call it Fairy Floss in Australia hehe πŸ˜‡

Then we met up with my friend Yuma to go MARIO KARTING. This is an actual thing you can do in Tokyo - Maricar run tours around Tokyo where you dress up as a Mario character and you LITERALLY go go-karting around the city. There are no helmets and no seat belts (so in other words, it’s bloody terrifying), but it is SO. MUCH. FUN. Just keep in mind that you’ll need an international driver’s licence to do it!

Hope you guys enjoy this travel vlog, it was one of my favourite days from the trip! If you’re still reading this, let me know in the comments below which Mario character you’d dress up as!

Watch the craziness below!
