Nails nails nails!

So, this is me celebrating my unphotogenic day. I'm not ambidextrous so the nails on my right hand are pretty deplorable, luckily thats the hand that holds the camera! Haha.

And yet another vid, a pretty useless one considering all pics + swatches are included on my blog anyway, I apologise if I've taken 9mins of your life. I wish I could give them back to you, I really do! Ahhh, but I guess the wasted effort deserves an upload... and you get to meet my little friend at the end hehe.


Collective Haul Video


After 6 days of torture I'm finally uncapped and ready to roll out this collective haul!

An entry or so back I declared myself broke, now I feel like I'm in debt and its eating at my soul! I promise from hereon that I will only purchase necessities, absolute bargains or things for Paul and I will try to grow that petty little bank balance of mine by the end of next year so that I can go and see America! Now this, THIS, is really going to test my patience... and sanity.

MAC pressies from the boyf, thankyou Paulfish :)

Fix plus, Blacktrack Fluidline, Studio Tech and Triple Fusion MSF

Alas, taking advantage of the MIMCO sale, this was actually purchased a few weeks back but it has been treating me well as a uni bag :)
MIMCO bag: was $499, now $249

  2. Awww, your doggie (at end of video) is so cute! And wicked haul - not to mention the cool stuff your bf bought for you.
    I love my MAC Fix+ and my MAC studio tech foundation. I see you like them too! I personally find the Studio tech to run a bit dark - I'm an NC30 and the NC30 studio tech is like an NC35 on me! But the finish is lovely and I got my Mom hooked on it! LOL
    Let us know how the Stila smudge pots compare to the MAC fluidlines in terms of longwearing/smudging...etc... =)
    I remember the Stila "My Mother My Hero" collection when it first launched around Mother's Day - I remember thinking, sheesh, I'd get it for myself! LOL. Lovely colours and thanks for all the swatches.
    I don't think you're unphotogenic at all! And I LUV your leopard print nails!

  3. Where did you get the china glaze from? :O
    My mum had to bring them back from me from the states!
    I think the ones without shimmer work better than the ones with shimmer!
    Nice haul btw

  9. Hi Annie. Thanks for sharing a bit of yourself with me in your last comment on my blog. It really meant a lot to me. I'm glad to hear that you've learned something from your hardship as well instead of giving up and taking the easy way out. - I really enjoy your makeup post. You have flawless skin and you always look so pretty in your pictures. I hope you're enjoying the weekend, Annie.

  28. You are very very beautiful. I love your eyes. And your hair. And body! You are amazing!

    I like china glaze polishes. But I know them only from internet, because in Poland they are not sold.

    Nice bag! I like it!

    Thank you for your sweet comment. :)

  29. OMG your nails are amazing! I'd like to be able to do the same!

  31. Going to sound like such a sheep, but your nails are soo cuute! And you're so gorgeous as usual!

    Too bad about Guthy Renker :(. That sounds like a lot of job pressure so it's probably a good thing you left! Poor hunnie.

    Unlike you, who is naturally skinny and beautiful, I have to watch what I eat and workout to keep in shape. I'm going spastic these few months since summer is around the corner lololol. I really hope at the end of it all, I will have abs of steel to show you :(.

    I really want to try the Stila smudgepots now! My BB gel liner is failing me :/.

    Regarding ModelCo, I would only really recommend it if your skin is not oily or acne prone because the primer is quite oily considering it's silicone based. If you have combo-dry skin, it's a fantastic primer because it will increase the longevity of your base ESP if you fix+ as well! I love this stuff and makes my make up stay for 10-12 hours no problems. I also like Chanel's Base Lumiere (buy from SNET) which has similar qualities as MAC's strobe cream + I've heard raving reviews about the NARS primer. But ModelCo is definitely 2 thumbs up from me and the pricing is very reasonable.

    Sorry to leave an essay.. :S.

    Just a quick question! You probably don't use this seeing as you don't have any eye bags/dark circles, but have you heard anything about the Garnier caffeine roll on stick, or the Garnier regenerating eye cream?

    Thanks!
