Slay-X Magical Glittery Eyeshadow
Purpose:
“SlayX’s glitter eyeshadow palette comes in 15 highly pigmented & smooth-to-apply glitter colours, suitable for both day & night use! All the colours are specially handpicked to include a variety of bright & soft colours for a casual glam look or a dolled-up party look!” (Simple Glam Girls).

Availability/Price:
I purchased mine from Simple Glam Girls for $29.90. But if you use the code “Alanna” at the checkout, you’ll get 20% off!

Rating:
4/5 – The colours are so pretty and I didn’t think it would be so pigmented. As much as I love glitter, I was a bit iffy about it because glitter seems to go everywhere! But this eyeshadow applies really smoothly and it’s something you can pretty much control.

Stila Warm & Fuzzy Liquid Lipstick Set
About:
“A trio of deluxe Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks in universally flattering warm shades — featuring a sneak peek of NEW a Shimmer Liquid Lipstick.” (Mecca)

Availability/Price:
I purchased mine from Mecca for $29.00.

Rating:
5/5 – I have seen a few people use this previously and heard great feedback from them! It applies smoothly to the point where your lips look soft. It’s quite pigmented too.

Daisy by Marc Jacobs
Purpose:
“Daisy is a floral fragrance with vintage edge: violet. Sophisticated, with a touch of whimsy, violet captures the eclectic, vintage flavour of Marc Jacobs’ feminine,
edgy designs. Always elegant, always enchanting – but not too serious – Daisy
is a sparkling floral bouquet, spirited and fresh, wrapped in comfort and warmth.” (Chemist Warehouse).

Availability/Price:
I purchased mine at Duty-Free and it was in a package, can’t really remember the price. However, they are sold at many places that stock perfumes 🙂

Rating:
5/5 – I’ve always been a lover of Daisy by Marc Jacobs, but never got around purchasing it until I was passing through Duty-Free. This floral fragrance is not like your usual fruity floral fragrance, it has a nice fresh edge to it.

Bennett Papaya Soap
Purpose:
“Made with the traditional methods according to the recipe passed from generation to generation, the active substances are now extracted and refined from papaya by Thai Traditional Pharmacy. Beta-carotene, active substances that act as antioxidants to help nourish the skin, give a luminous, firm and hydrated skin, remove dead skin cells and whiten skin.  To protect skin against acne, melasma, pruritus and rash. Smell good throughout the day.” (Thai Wholesaler)

Availability/Price:
I purchased mine from this Thai oriental shop in Beechborro for $5.99.

Rating:
4/5 – I’ve been looking for papaya soap everywhere because I wanted to get rid of my dark spots, and finally found it at a Thai oriental shop (how ironic – since they’re all about whitening skin). It has honestly been working quite well, especially with my armpits.


Food/Cafe’

Lot Six Zero, Aveley
Rating:
4/5 – This was my first time eating here. It’s a new and quiet cafe in Aveley. I took Angela with me, and we were quite impressed with the exterior and interior design of it, also the quick service and the choice of food and drinks available. Angela ordered a Bacon Benedict and I ordered a Beef Salad, and we both ordered watermelon juice. The food was great and so was the fresh cold-pressed juice, also since there weren’t much people the food came under 15 minutes!


Entertainment

TV/Movie

Deray Davis: How To Be Black
About:
“Nailing the finer points of living, dating and handling show business as a black man.” (Netflix)

Rating: 
4/5 – I love Deray, ever since he was apart of the Wild n Out crew. But I didn’t think he would have his own stand-up or I didn’t really picture him like that, so I was quite interested to see this. And it was HILARIOUS!

Platinum Life
About: 
“The fierce and devoted women behind some of music’s biggest names take centre stage.

News

Rating: 
3.5/5 – I’m not going to be biased and say it’s really good because I am about that life (lol), and I personally love Asiah! It’s pretty average, but if you’re into reality tv and hip-hop/urban life, then I totally recommend this!

We Bare Bears
About: 
“Three bear brothers do whatever they can to be a part of human society by doing what everyone around them does.” (IMDB)

Rating: 
4/5 – I’ve noticed We Bare Bears through a Facebook clip I found a year ago, which I thought was hilarious. I didn’t realise it was a TV show, to be honest until a few weeks ago I discovered it on Stan. I’ve been watching it ever since, not only is it cute, but it’s hilarious.
