INSTAGRAM FLATLAY Costume DIY & NYX Cosmetics Halloween Party! // VLOG


Because why just take a photo of the flatlay, when you can BE. THE. FLATLAY. 

This Halloween I was totally extra and dressed up as a literal Instagram flatlay because #ontrend. And I decided to film the DIY process of it as well in case you wanted to be a flatlay for the spooky season too, since it’s SO EASY and you can use whatever makeup you have in your house to make it. Do it for the ‘gram! 

Stay tuned to the end for a lil vlog of the NYX Cosmetics Spooktober Halloween party as well! Big thanks to NYX for having me πŸŽƒ✨

What a Weekend! Shopping, Brunch & Beauty Events! // VLOG


What a weekend! This week I’m bringing you a longer vlog because I wasn’t a hermit this weekend (not joking… #introvertlife) and I got up to a LOTTTT

First up I spent Saturday with Bii from BiiBiiBeauty and we splurged on lunch at Chin Chin (comment a 😏 down below if you know what ‘chin chin’ means!) and visited Mecca Cosmetica to see all of their new releases for the 20th birthday collaborations. STILL dreaming about the Hourglass palette!

On Sunday I caught up with Mel, one of my besties from uni to go out to My Other Brother for brunch. If you’re ever in the Camberwell area, get your butt over there because their menu is πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Then on Monday I was invited to the Clarisonic & Lancome event for the Aussie launch of the new Clarisonic FOUNDATION BLENDING BRUSH. Yeah. It’s exciting πŸŽ‰πŸ₯‚

I knowww in the intro I said that this would be a weekly vlog, but I ended up not going to some of the beauty events I was invited to because my introverted self needed some recharging time hahaha

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!

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!
