Manicure Monday: French Bows

Hello Princesses!

This Monday I'm wearing Vinylux's Cream Puff, with Etude House's Sweet Sweet Nail stickers!
The Etude House nail stickers look so adorable! The gold accents worked well, but the bow was scraped off almost immediately, even after top-coating! I replaced the bow three times and the result was the same each time. The clear top coat also dried a little funny around my cuticles.

The Vinylux polishes are a great choice for lazy people like me who want their manicures to last longer chip-free, without paying for gel manicures!

My Week in Photos

Hello Princesses!

 This week I'm trying to catch up on past event that I never shared with you! This post is going to be one huge photo spam!

For the League of Legends World Championships, the bf, flatmate and I went up to Auckland to watch the finals at a bar. The BarcraftNZ team had the whole bar dedicated to the Lol finals with 1v1's, quizzes, dance-offs and a raffle to add to the fun! We also got cute little wrist bands, lanyards and arm bands to show we were old enough to be there. 

Last year I watched the finals in my pj's on the couch in my living room, and to be honest I'm not sure which venue I prefer! The bar was WAY too loud, (I had to stuff tissue paper in my delicate ears because I'm such a girl) it was hard to see the screen and people spilling drinks on my feet is not fun, but the atmosphere was awesome! Whereas at my house the TV is great, nobody spills things on me and nobody stares at me trying to figure out why I'm watching LOL, because my whole flat is watching it anyway. *shrugs*

The light was too dim in the bar to take selfies, so I was stuck with the awkward bathroom selfie. But you can't see the toilet so it's still classy! (sort of) 
 Afterwards we went out to a ramen bar for dinner! :3
The next weekend I was at the Wallace Corporation University of Waikato Blues award night!


*Whew* that was a lot of photos! What did you guys get up to this week?

Review: USA Nails Online

Hello Princesses!

A couple of weeks ago I joined USA Nails Online's Nail Frenzy sale! They had some super cheap polishes, including Color Club for $4 (and some for free!) as well as Ruby Wing polishes for $10 and many more. USA Nails Online is my favorite place to buy Colour Club and Ruby Wing polishes because they frequently have amazing sales and their shipping arrives within 2 - 3 days. When you're used to waiting months for your shopping, quick shipping is such a treat! 
All the pretties!
The ones with crosses through them don't belong to me though, Grace from Polish Armoire and I shared shipping to keep the cost low! ;)

Blush Baby Prizes

Hello Princesses!

As some of you might know, I dressed up as Snow White, for a Disney Princesses makeup competition run by the online NZ store - Blush Baby.
The competition was held on Blush Baby's facebook page and we were only allowed to share and promote our photo's through facebook. I had so much fun creating the look, and the Bf even helped me by taking the photo's, (which came out AMAZING) I loved them so much, I made a little collage of them in my header.


The competition was based on facebook "likes". Unfortunately I don't really like promoting myself, or asking people to vote for me because I know that it I hate it when people ask me to vote for them, so I was severely outclassed by some of the other competitors, (the winner had almost 800 likes while I had about 260). Which is definitely my own fault for not wanting to share the photo or pester people to vote for me. 

As luck would have it, the owner of Blush Baby decided to give out not only a first prize, but a second and third too! Nicola sent me a wee package (which came within 3 days, talk about speedy postage!) and she picked the BEST prizes!
Ardell Lash Grip - Dark - Ardelll Colour Impact Plum
Ever since I tried on my purple contacts and went, OHMYGODTHEY'REGORGEOUS (Reveiw HERE) I've been looking at purple eyeshadow and eyeliner to try and bring some of that WOW back into my life, quite forgetting about purple falsies! I cannot express how excited I am to try these out! I've also heard that Ardell makes some pretty amazing falsies so I assume that their glue is also top notch.
 (They are SO pretty!)

Tangle Teezer Salon Elite - Blue Bella 
Again, something I hadn't really thought about, but something I desperately needed. I've had my current hairbrush for 7 years and it certainly looks 7 years old. My old hair brush makes my hair look super frizzy whereas the Tangle Teezer makes it look smooth, shiny, and gives me a sweet scalp massage at the same time! The bf also loves it because he feels like he's grooming a horse if he brushes my hair with it. ^^
I would like to thank Nicola from Blush Baby for hosting this amazing competition, and for offering a third place prize when she didn't have to. I had SO much fun creating this look and now that she's holding a Halloween themed photo competition, I really really want to participate again! 

What do you guys think of the Snow White look? Would you be interested to see how I created it?
