What up?

Hope you guys had a great weekend! 
I had a pretty relaxing weekend (read: I have done jack shit =.=") and god bless the glorious weekend weather after a terrible storm that hit the Sydney shore last Thursday. :D

Cosmopolitan; Havaianas; Sheridan Beach Towel; Coogee

Being an avid beach lover, how can I miss getting a good ol' Vitamin D-soaking sesh and playtime with the waves? 

I think I am close to being a chocolate bar now but am absolutely loving my tan! If only it stays this awesome for the next 6 months! #AGirlCanDream


So, after a scrumptious yumcha session with the uni crew at some ungodly hour on Sunday (9:30am on a Sunday is classified as ungodly in my dictionary.), I managed to squeeze in a mini haul before hitting the b-e-a-c-h. 

Sunday Mini Haulage
- Charity bracelet - "peace" and "believe"from RUBI - BIG ideas note book from TYPO to motivate myself to write down any ideas/ inspirations that come to mind and/or sight - 3 pair of heels from RUBI -

Before giving me the "WTF, is she crazy" look, these pretty heels were selling for $10 per pair and their heels are of perfect height for work. Its hard to go past them, really. Moreover, I do *kinda* need working heels as 99.9% of my heels collections have an average height of 4 inches. Not quite work appropriate, me thinks.

RRP AUD5 with any purchase in store (TYPO)
Tell me how gorgeous this PINK Eiffel tower iPhone casing is!!! :P
Super love <3 


As the title suggests, I challenged myself to finish a full make up (including eyes, lips and face; excluding any skin care applications) within 10 minutes. I have been snoozing my alarm more often than ever in the past couple of weeks and I have no other choice but to take my own sweet time to be creative with my FOTD. =/ I think there's a 5 minutes challenge that was going around a while ago but we gotta be realistic sometimes - 5 minutes is mission impossible LOL

10 minutes Make Up Challenge

Here's a quick breakdown of the products used:

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Bloom Eye Crayon in Taupe*
Sisley Phyoto Ombre´ E´clat in Stardust* 
Canmake Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Maybelline Hello Kitty Volume Express Mascara in Black
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazelnut

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Vintage Pink
(A long lost love! I am currently into cooler-toned pink lippie with purple undertone again and I have been wearing this for the past week!)

SkinFood Aloe Vera BB Cream in #2
Maybelline Instant Age-Rewind Skin Correcter in Nude
Marjolica Marjoca Puff de Cheeks in OR302
Sports Girl Oh My Goddess Bronzer
Jane Iredale In Touch Highlighter in Complete*
Simple and quick make up = a younger and more innocent Adeline. :)

Love the final results of this <10minutes FOTD.
It will probably be my "on-the-go" look with probably different lip colour every week, or even day!

 Sisley Phyoto Ombre´ E´clat in Stardust is an absolute gem and works perfectly as an over the lid colour! (Review and swatches coming this week!)

I challenge everyone of you to do the 10 minutes FOTD challenge. :P

How long does it take you to apply your daily make up?
Does it take you less or more than 10 minutes? 

Don't forget to leave your link below if you took up the challenge! Would love to check it out!

it takes me about 15mins for my work face, i rarely spend anymore time than that unless attending an event!

Wow, RUBI shoes must be having a good sale. I've got my routine down pat (on days I wear makeup) so that I can be out the door in less than 5 minutes. It's because most of the time I only wear primer, foundation, powder and blusher. Everything else takes too long! x
