Beauty | BH Cosmetics Haul

** All prices are in US Dollars
I have been a fan of BH Cosmetics since coming across the site to purchase the Shaaanxo - 18 Color Eyeshadow & Lipstick Palette (US$11.00). I have since been building a list of products I wanted to buy and when an email landed in my inbox for free shipping and a gift with any purchase over $25 I jumped on it.

Health | 3 Easy Ways To Kickstart Your Day

1. Drink water

Water! This is something you probably hear all the time, but drinking water first thing in the morning is a great way to rehydrate your body after sleeping. Whether it is water by itself or warm water with lemon slices, you will feel more awake and ready to start your day. I love starting my day with a few slices of lemon in warm water. I have been doing this for six months now and I find it really helps me start my morning right.

Review | The Parcel Summer Edit 2016

Let’s talk about The Parcel - Summer Edit 2016 - which was delivered this morning. I have been waiting patiently for this box to arrive since receiving the Spring Edit. And this edition didn’t let me down. You can read my review of the Spring Edit here.

The quality of this box was just as great as the last one, packed full with great sized items that I can’t wait to try. I have been lucky enough that most products suit my skin tone and skin tone in both boxes so far. Fingers crossed for the next one.

So let’s look at the contents of this Edit.

Review | The Parcel Spring Edit 2016

Today I received the latest box and my first box from The Parcel. If you haven’t heard about this subscription box yet, you are in for a treat! The Parcel is a seasonal box delivered every 3 months with a range of beauty products for $25 per box.

When I picked up the box from my front door, my first thought was how heavy the box was. I couldn’t wait to open it and see what was inside!

Once I opened The Parcel I quickly realised how many full products/sample products were included and I’m not talking about the tiny sachet size samples, more like travel size samples. I find this size to be perfect as you have enough of the product to find out if it is suitable and you enjoy using the product and don't end up with ¾ of the product left.

Travel | My Trip to Queenstown New Zealand

Queenstown has always been on my to see list during winter. I finally decided to tick it off my list in August this year. During my week in Queenstown, I was blessed with the best weather with little to no rain, light snow overnight and relatively warm sunny days. Its fair to say my week in Queenstown was full of adventure!

I had nine days in Queenstown.  I flew from Brisbane to Queenstown via Sydney with Qantas and had a direct flight back to Brisbane from Queenstown. I think the best piece of advice I was given for this trip was to get a window seat to catch a glimpse of the beautiful snow capped mountains on arrival to Queenstown airport. Once I arrived at the airport, I was pick up by the car rental company and taken to pick up my car for the week.

I usually use Omega Car Rentals when in New Zealand as I find they have a great range of cars at really affordable prices. I would recommend renting a car while in Queenstown/New Zealand as it makes it so much easier to get around due to lack of public transport and cost of taxis.
