PHOTOLOG: Easter Long Weekend


Gotta love a 4-day week, it's already midweek. That only means we are another day closer to the Eve and Friday!! Whoop Whoop! :)

Further to my Part 1 of this week's PhotoLog HERE, this post is just a quick update on my Easter Long Weekend:

I gotta admit, despite the occasional crazy wind, the weather has been pretty good to us Sydney-siders as of late. This is probably the first Good Friday in a while which had the sun shining bright at us instead of drizzling all day. 

Good Friday was spent with the bestie, Miss WendyAndCo after a night filled with CC Drys, Plum Wine & I-Can't-Keep-Track-Of-The-Rest-Of-My-Drinks and we managed to squeeze Titanic 3D into the schedule with some KFC Wicked Wings Snack Box!

Needless to say, this classic movie left Wendy and I tearing by the end of the show. No longer the naive little girls we are, apart from the cliche yet unrealistic love story (which is still heart wrenching BTW), we focus on the tragedy itself and that gave us a whole new perspective in life. 

The 3D effect was rather subtle - except for the part when Titanic sunk within minutes but I would still recommend it to those of you whom have yet to watch this in ages. Please watch at your own risk as this movie has left quite an impact on Wendy and I, with us feeling sad a day after. #truestory

After a day of recovering, it's roadtrip with the girls down to the Coast, stopping by Wollongong, ShellHarbour & Kiama! 

God bless Mother Nature for another lovely sunny day albeit the wind was pretty crazy at times - the weather was still perfecto for a day trip!

The girls riding a big black cannon right in front of the lighthouse. Go figure LOL

I promise I am innocent. :P 

Vintage Coronets Car Expo along the beach - need I say more about such amazing combination? :D

@BlowHole, Kiama
Hot & Sour Hand Made Noodle Soup with extra chilli @Sea Bay Noodle House, Burwood
What's the best way to end a good day out (and to kill the annoying nose block!) other than a good bowl of hot and spicy soup?

And, green tea frozen yogurt as dessert! Yums yums in my tums tums! :D

 Another sunny day in Sydney after a gloomy Easter Sunday (in which I stayed at home and laze in bed like a sloth)! My outfit of the day for a coffee with the gorgeous Lilit and Jenny

Lovin the denim shorts & loose, flowy shirt (chiffon material) combo!

Guess who finally gave in and came home with this baby? <3 

All proceeds from the sales of Viva Glam Range go towards the research for HIV - so it is for good cause and this is probably the only time I will purchase full price items from MAC Australia. 

I can foresee this lippie is going to be competing so hard with my current fav - MAC Watch Me Shimmer :P

@Kobow Restaurant
Complimentary Korean entree´ for early din din - they did not have my fav honey potatoes!

Korean BBQ Beef Brisket, Hot tofu soup (I could SO do with some of this right now!) and seafood pancake! NOMS!

Just in case you can't already tell, green tea frozen yogurt is my weakness!

Personally, I prefer Moochi over Noggi as their frozen yogurt is more authentic (ie, sour and less sweet). Even their mochi is not as sweet as Noggi. Either way, they are both yummy and me ruvs! 

Circle lenses, mad ass mascara and instagram filter for lighter hair makes me look different, no? I'd like to call it #gyaruinspired if I may say so myself.

I would love to go this light with my hair if it wasn't for my crazily sensitive scalp! Argh, decisions, decisions. 

Just started using Australis VoluptuLash Mascara over the Long Weekend and can you tell I am absolutely lovin it already!!!! Look at how mad those lashes look and yes, they are my natural lashes. Probably one of the best mascara I have tried thus far - and the best thing is they are easy on the wallet too! *cheers* 

(Full review to come soon :D)

Circle lenses as reviewed HERE

That pretty much sums up my simple but relaxing and amazing (simply because its a 4 day weekend!) #LongWeekend. Sucks having to be back at work but I will try to be positive and less cranky this week! #POSITIVITY peeps! 

I suppose you guys are probably starting to get bored of my continuous photolog updates - proper beauty related updates resume in the next post! :D

How was your Easter Long Weekend?
Got up to anything interesting or mischief? :P

Haha, love those cannon shots!
And that car show by the shoreside is a fantastic idea..
I'm so jealous! You get the yummiest frozen yoghurt combo's - we don't even have a frozen yoghurt place here in Mackay :( makes me super sad!
Absolutely adore that flowy pale pink shirt with the cute denim shorts and your hair up - a look that completely works for you :)

Can't wait to see a FOTD/FOTN with the Viva Glam... is it Nicky?
Once my Beauty Ban is over I plan on seeing if I can pick it up somewhere and also plan on trying some of those new Australis mascara's out! :)

#POSITIVITY indeed, it's the theme of the week for me too haha just keep applying for new better paying jobs in a positive environment instead of working here...

Hooray for long weekends! Hard to believe it was all a week ago... wow! I went to Rockhampton for a car show and slept off a throat and sinus infection :) then did a very satisfactory room clean and makeup reorganizing haha.
