About Me

My photo
My name is Kelly and currently my life pretty much is all about shopping for anything. At the moment i cant get enough make up and jewllery! Carrie from sex and the city said it best: I've spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!

Bali Shopping

I love love love Bali! The first time i went was two years ago and i hated it! i don't know what was different this time but i had a blast with my brother and i cant wait to go back!
We both spent way too much money (my brother wanted to shop more than i did)

These were some of my brothers many hats & skateboard decks that he bought the shoes are real DC's and he got them for $40!!!!

Only some of our sunglass collection i couldn't help myself they were all around $3 each! these are mostly all Ray Bans but there are a few Von Zipper ones also.

These basketball jerseys are the best things to sleep in! when i go back to Bali i will need to get more for sure... i couldn't tell you how much i paid for them we went into one shop and walked out spending $400 between the two of us! i think my brother felt sorry for them so we just bought everything from them.

My Rolex and some arm candy we bought on the beach :)

This name necklace is something i wanted last time i went but never had the time to wait for them to make it. i bought one in gold and one in silver. The only problem is the gold chain is almost black now and i haven't even had it on while showering but what can you expect for $10! My name is still nice and shinny so i will have to get  new chain for it i think.

These are just some of our purchases from over there. My brother bought a whole lot of Mooks shirts which were all about $20 each! Tried not to go overboard on crap we will never use but i think we both did pretty well with it.
I still cant understand the money as good as most people so if i go back by myself i may have to avoid shopping in the markets where bartering is involved otherwise i will have no money left on the first day!

Christmas time

I love Christmas! I am on a mission not to let anything get in the way of my Christmas spirit... Decorations at work, Christmas tree in my room, Lots of decorations at home and of course a REAL tree in the lounge room.
Nothing beats the smell of the real tree when you walk through the door.

One thing i have found a lot of this year is Solar powered Christmas lights. 

These 4 santas were $15 at Big W same for the 4 candy canes. We must have the best looking letter box in the street! no other lights on the house but at least its something. But i would highly recommend these lights, you just set them up and leave them. No waisting electricity and no needing to turn them off and on. They also have the normal string lights i got some small ones just to try them out i hung them on a small tree outside and they are great as well. If i have any money left over i think i will be buying more and keeping them for next Christmas.

This is the tree in my room i love being able to see this while i am laying in bed it gets me excited for Christmas day!!!

Just after having a conversation with a work friend the other day about how Diva had some very ordinary items and i stopped shopping there a while ago, I walked into a store and was actually very impressed with there stock.

Since i should be shopping for Christmas presents for other people not myself i restricted myself to only two items. Two small gold rings that i am in love with and haven't taken them off since my purchase.

Both of these rings were $3.99 each. I just love the simplicity of them both. Thinking of going back to get more just incase these ones loose there colour. 

Betts pre Christmas Sale

Needed an outfit for my work Christmas party and the dress i had just bought required NEW shoes!!

went into Betts and found these babies on sale.... for $40

The lady asked if i would like to buy some shoe grips i automatically said no but then had a look at them and decided to give them a go! They were $5-$10 for 1 pair.

Firstly you use the piece of sandpaper that they supply you to sand the surface and make it rough.

Once thats all done you simply pull of the double sided tape on the grip and stick it to the soles of your shoes! and thats it no more slippery shoes. I didn't end up wearing these to my Christmas party but did wear them on a drunken night out and i must say they work a treat. So i would do yourself a favour and buy these for all of your sky high heels!

Below is the finished product oh and a clutch that i got on sale also for a crazy amount of $10!
I Love Pre Christmas Sales :)

Beach Walk

Just a little update on whats been going on, I got back from a very spare of the moment holiday to Bali with my brother.
Partly for his Birthday & partly because i needed a rest after the stress of planning a wedding only to have to cancel everything weeks before the day because apparently my fiance didn't really want to get married in the end.

Now i am single i am hoping that i can keep up to date with this blog more, now i have spare time!

While i was in Bali i realised that i didn't bring a foundation with me so while i was shopping with my brother at the Beachwalk in Kuta i stooped in at Make Up Forever.
They had a fantastic range of products from every day make up to dramatic artistic products.
Wonderful looking eyelashes, UV lipstick & eye shadows and lots lots more.

I was really only after some foundation but you know what happens you see other things and you HAVE to have them.

I ended up leaving with a High Definition foundation in the colour 155 Medium Beige, which is a great full coverage foundation. This is the best full cover foundation i have used in a long time. Super easy to apply and it looks fantastic! 
I also got talked into buying the High Definition micro finish powder. This is a white powder that you apply over the foundation to set it and It also matifies the skin
Not really sure how i feel about this product. At this stage i could probably live without it.

Next i bought a Sculpting Blush in the colour 08 Satin Indian Pink. Its quite a bright pink so you have to be careful with application but its a really nice everyday Blush and i keep reaching for this one over my much loved Mac Blush so it must be pretty good.

I also bought a Sculpting Brush which has 2 ends to it one for powder & the other i use for my blush. Its the softest brush i have ever felt and comes in a cute little travel pouch. Probably one of the best brushes i have ever purchased, i still have not had any little bristles left over on my face after my make up application.

The last thing i bought was an eyeliner pencil (sorry not in this pic) i was going clubbing and wanted nice dark eyes for the occasion. I made the decision to get a waterproof pencil something i don't think i have ever done before because i didn't feel the need for waterproof makeup. However Bali is......HOT! and i didn't want my eyes running down my face so i went with the Black Aqua Eyes eyeliner. This worked a treat after a night clubbing and even swimming my eyes had not budged! Very easy to apply as the pencil is a creamy texture and glides right on!

I have had a look online and it looks like there are a few company's that sell this brand. Definitely one to look out for!

Here are a few happy snaps from the Holiday.....

I ran out of my Mac foundation and I am really not liking the idea of wasting it on work days so I thought I would find something else.

I decided on the new Maybelline foundation.
One week after using it and I think I really love it!

The only problem is the colour is way too dark!
I got it in a real rush and the foundation and powder is fine with this tan I have, but the concealer is definitely way way way too dark :(

Next time I will actually use the incredibly helpful instructions on the back on how to pick the perfect colour!

Lust Have It...

Lust have it monthly beauty box.... Think I may cancel this box haven't been overly impressed. I much prefer the glossy box but I am not sure if thats because it comes in a prettier box???

For anyone that doesn't know beauty box's are websites you can join and for a small fee they will send you samples I products every month this one is from Lusthaveit.com

Extra Volume please

I needed a dry shampoo last year when I was on holidays in Queensland. So I went to Priceline found a small bottle of John Frieda used it once and never touched it again.
Then a few months latter when I was trying to use up old products I used it again and realized it wasn't just a dry shampoo but it gave me lots of volume as well!
It was awesome! Then when I went to find it again it was no where to be seen......until one lunch break at Coles!
So I bought 3 bottles!
It's the best dry shampoo I have found since the Tony & Guy one I was obsessed with but for some reason can't find anymore!

If you are looking for volume I suggest you try this! And having dark hair usually means I am trying to brush out the white powder for ages but if you shake this one a lot it seems to be quite clear

Happy Days!!!

Wedding Day Smile

With every month that passes its another month closer to my wedding day!
All the preparation that still needs to be done overwhelms me!

One thing i wanted to try out was some teeth whitening. I found this deal on one of those deal of the day websites for $20 for a teeth whitening kit. I purchased it and to be honest forgot about it. Until i logged on to the website one day and realized it had not been sent out. One quick email and a few days latter it was in the mail.

I got trays for my upper and lower teeth gel and then a UV light.

I will wait to use this until a few months closer to the wedding i think but i really hope that it works!

Last single girl Birthday!

It was my birthday last week the last one before i get married....very exciting!

I went out on the weekend with my close friends to celebrate we went to dinner and then a few drinks.
It was great and i think i had a bit too much to drink!

They absolutely spoilt me!

This is what my 3 best friends got me the pink Kardashian bag i was very close to buying a few weeks ago! glad i held off. I was also eyeing off the Mimco coin purse that same day so i have a feeling my fiance had a little something to do with that one. Its super super soft i think its going to come in handy and its a great neutral colour as well.

These are absolutely stunning i already have the pink studs from Swarovski which i had previously received a few years ago as a Christmas Present. The are great for work not too big but enough to make me feel good for the day.

This is a purple stoned ring from Pandora. I was so excited to open it and my friend even knew what size i needed so i didn't have to worry about taking it back to exchange for the right one!

Such a great night i am so lucky to have such good friends!!!

No internet at work no posts!

Hey guys so the internet has been officially banned from work.
Which means my posts which usually get written during my lunch break are proving a lot harder to write.
But i am going to try my very best to post on the weekends and in my free time!

I received a late Christmas present the other day and i was quite excited when i realized what it was.

I have recently formed an obsession with Kate Spade. I cant tell you where or how it started but first i got the phone cover then my wedding shoes (which i will post about soon) and then i got this.....

I love the bright colours it instantly puts me in a good mood. So i will be using this mug at work because i love a bright and happy desk!

I went on the Kate Spade web site and there is some lovely dinner sets that i would love to invest in. Hopefully i can get a set as a wedding present but who knows...

Weekend of being sick....

So on Friday night we had pizza for dinner and lets just say it ruined my whole Saturday :(
That and i also have a touch of the flu. So i spent most of the weekend at home cleaning my room and attempting to take down my fiance's Christmas Tree.


 This is my favourite decoration i bought 4 of them on sale i am regretting not buying more. They are glass so i am keeping my fingers crossed they will be all still in tact for next Christmas.

Saturday night i was feeling MUCH better so my fiance and I went out for dinner to Rashay's.

We shared this desert it was so big we could not finish it!


Sunday when i was cleaning my room of all the clutter I found this bracelet that i bought last Christmas. You cant see the writing very well but it says "Love......as though you have never been hurt before" I simply adore it.

I decided to start using my new Marcs bag i got for Christmas. Its so incredibly soft and not just big, but MASSIVE i may loose all of my belongings in it but i love it.
The blue on the inside is also so nice i wish i could out it inside out...

I found half a container of this Milk Bath i bought ages ago from The Body Shop. But i may have put too much in because after i got out of the bath i had white patches all over my body. BUT i was very soft and smelt lovely!

Sunday night i popped my Thai cherry! and it was sooooo good i will defiantly be going back for more!

I ate my main meal too quickly and forgot to take a pic but here was my fabulous desert!

Now back to work for the week hopefully next weekend i will be feeling better and i can go to the beach!

Crackle nail polish

I needed to have my nails re done as the previous colour had gone an awful tinge of yellow. I was just going to get the usual french tip but this caught my eye!

Crackle nail polish has been around for a while now but i had never thought to try it.

I can't decide if i like it or not. It is different but maybe only for special occasions i am not sure i could live with this for a whole two weeks.

What do you think?
