So here it comes, did i stay with my budget or did i over spend? well here's the answer you have possibly been waiting for. My total of purchases was: $18.57 !!! WOOOHOOO. With $1.43 to spare.
I cant wait to try these products, and to give my honest opinion on them!
Dont miss out on these skincare deals, get in quick before the sale ends.

Essence 24H Hand Protection Balm ( Winter Edition)

In the colder months, my hands get dry, flakey and sometimes crack in the creases of my knuckles. It gets very painful that I have to constantly rub cream on my hands or worse wash my hands for relief. Which is a huge No No, as that makes my hands 10 times worse then before.

Caramel Hot Chocolate - $1.95

Finding a hand balm is harder then you think, I want something that reliefs pain, smooth, soft and doesn't give the oily feel after applying. After trying many testers in the shops, I saw the Essence shelf that was stacked with hand balms with different scents. There wasn't any testers, so I took my chance & grabbed the Caramel Hot Chocolate bottle that read:

" This 24h hand protection balm is an intensive repair care for particularly rough and dry hands, the repair formula with Shea Butter and Coconut Oil provides moisture, care and protects your hands from dryness for up to 24hrs. Does not leave an oily residue. Caramel Hot Chocolate scented hand cream "

The Winter Editions to the Hand Protection Balm range evoke memories of our favourite winter warmer drinks. The three new flavours/scents are: Caramel Hot ChocolateApple Cinnamon Punch & Gingerbread Chai Latte.

When I first applied the cream / balm, the fragrance was nice and smelt almost yummy but then it reminded me of La Tan (fake tanning spray). They were true to scent and exactly what the bottle says. After the application the scent does fade away after time unless you cover my face with your hands, which you'll keep doing once you've applied them. The Essence balms are $1.95 and I honestly thought due to the price tag, the products would at least be greasy, which is something I truly hate! After using this for a week, I was wrong. It's very light wright, worked its magic and definitely did what it was described to do. It's truly left my hands feeling, smooth and soft. Although I don't think it kinda lives up to "24hr protection" I'd recommend reapply every couple of hours just to keep the moisture in your hands.

I love the Essence products, but it's such a huge shame that they discontinue their products after a couple of weeks from releasing them. I haven't been able to see these in Priceline (where I brought mine) but I did see some at Target.

I only just recently discovered Candle Jewels on Facebook. I've seen many other online companies that do the exact thing but never ship to Australia, so I was super excited when I found out that Candle Jewels was AUSTRALIAN!! Wooop!

                                          >    www.candlejewels.com.au  <

RRP: $34.95
You're possibly wondering what is Candle Jewels, so here's a quick brief idea:

Many scented candles that each have a surprise inside, each candle has a ring inside starting from $50 to $7000 in value! The candles are approximately 16cm high with a 9cm diameter. Average burning time is 120 hours and smell AMAZING!

I purchased the Fairy Floss scent candle as I'm a lover for floss and knew it'd smell just like candy. I was super excited to start burning this baby as I've been waiting so long for one of these. I received the candle 2 days after paying for it. Talk about fast postage or what? The first day I got it, I didn't wanna burn it, as I wanted to take photos. My boyfriend was even more excited then I was, he was begging me to burn it, but I didn't give in. We both just admired the smell that night.

Candle Jewels - Fairy Floss

As it came to the morning, I set fire to that candle, and OMG! The smell reminded me of when i was a little girl back in primary school, waiting in line at the fair to get fairy floss. The smell was so strong, I loved it. I burnt the candle for at least 3-4 hours each night, the excitement of watching the candle, each time the wax melted it meant just a little bit more until I can pull my ring out.

After 2 weeks of burning the candle, the little package was swimming around. The excitement was insane. I pulled it straight out.. I didn't care about the burning wax on my fingers, I was dying to see it. The ring was wrapped in foil & plastic pocket for safety of the ring. Which was a great idea! My ring was gorgeous, BIG & RED! I don't know the value of the ring  I don't think I'd actually get it valued by a jeweller, as money can't put a price tag on the excitement it gave my partner and myself.

Top Right: Ring Wrapped Up
Bottom Left: Ring Safely Wrapped In Plastic Bag
Bottom Right: MY RING!! 

Overall; I loved the service, the candle, the smell, the package and most importantly the ring! It's worth the price and ill definitely be repurchasing these candles for friends and family as gifts! I'm a happy customer, and will recommending this to everyone! So head over to their page & order your candle today, you will also receive a sample of another scent!

My stylish guide to keep fit and health through out the colder months of the year. Even though the weather is wet, cold and muddy. That isn't a reason why you should stop working out. To get your heart pumping, body sweating and the heat is great for the body. Don't let winter get the best of you. It takes a quick and easy 5 minutes to do a simple work out from your busy 24 hour day. You need that extra push. I work in retail and im always on my feet, lifting boxes, cleaning fixtures, folding clothes, walking up and down the floor. It's never ending, although I do get a work out from just doing that but that doesn't end my daily work out, when I get home a do a 30 minute routine of push ups, sit up and squats. It's so simple and easy. If you're one of those people who can't keep track of their work outs, download an app on your phone that can do all the work for you, even get those workout apps that can guide you to a clean, easy and better lifestyle. I've even added a quick 5 minute routine to help kick start your day! 

Here's a quick 5 minute workout:

1. Clean & Press.
(Works shoulder, back, butt and legs)
- Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and place dumbbell on the floor near each foot. Start squatting, bringing the dumbbells to the outside of your knees.
- Standing strong and bring the dumbbells to your hips, raise the weights through your shoulders and over your head. Lower and repeat for 60 seconds

2. Side Lunge
( works back, butt and legs)
- Stand feet shoulder width apart, holding dumbbells at your sides. Take a huge step out to the left with your left foot. Starting bending your left knee 90 degrees while keeping the right leg straight. Return to start and repeat for 30 seconds then switch legs. 

3. Squat & Bicep Cur
l(Works biceps, butt and inter thighs)
-Stand with feet shoulder width apart to toes pointed out. Have each arm extended, palms up. Bend knees at 90 degrees, squatting as you curl towards your shoulders. Return to start and repeat for 60 seconds

4. Push Up Plus
(works shoulders, chest, abs, back and triceps)
-Begin in a full push up position, palms down on the floor under shoulder and legs extended. Do a single push up then carefully lift your right hand off the floor, extending your arm out to the side. Holding here, lift your left foot off the floor. Lower hand and foot back down to the floor. Do another push up and repeat with the opposite side. 

5. Leg Deadlift & Kick Back

(works back, legs and triceps)
-Stand hip width apart, holding dumbbells with elbows bent 90 degrees, hands close to your rib cage. Lift your right foot behind you and bend forward slowly from the hips. As you straighten your arms, being them next to your hips. Return to starting position and repeat for 30 seconds on each side.

REVIEW: Clearasil Vitamins & Extracts Scrub

Vitamins and Extracts is one of the many products in the Clearasil family of skincare products. The range targets those in need of a gentle but effective daily skincare routine, packing products full of gentle but effectively cleansing ingredients known for their nourishing and antioxidant properties.

Clearasil Vitamins & Extracts Scrub

I was super lucky to get this product in my hands, as I truly love a good facial scrub and also the very first time using Clearasil skin care products.
I've tried a LOT of scrubs over my time, but haven't found my favourite. I don't suffer from acne, but working in retail & always speaking with customers, i want to have my face clean, fresh as possible! Finding a scrub that keeps my skin feeling soft, smooth, helps control my dry / oily areas ( T zone, corner of my nose) and provides a deep cleansing method is a big must have!

After using the scrub a couple of days, i started to notice some changes in my skin, it was smooth, fresh and even felt really soft. To be honest; i had never ever seen my face so clean before. I was very shocked. So as the week went on, I found that using it in the shower helped 1000000X more then normal cleaning. It is gritty but not sharp, which I love, but some people may find it inflames blemishes if they scrub too hard with it. 

Also found out that it works wonders if you leave it on your face for roughly 5 minutes (still in the shower) then raise off. The steam from the hot water helps all the ingredients to penetrate on your skin. I did get many compliments from my work friends saying that my skin looked fresh and healthy. Overall I'm going to stop hunting down a scrub because I've honestly already found it! I've found tricks with this product to continue getting the best results. It has already been added to my skincare routine for both morning & night. If you haven't found your holy grail scrub yet, then what are you waiting for? Head down to your local shops & put up your Clearasil Vitamins & Extracts Scrub today!

** this product was sent to me to review, i wasn't paid to try or to write this. everything was written in my own honest word & experience.

With Love Kirsten HAUL :):)

Recently i did a HUUGGGEE shop on the online company named With Love Kirsten.. they always have insane deals, amazing pieces and even replica designer items. Ive been shopping with them for awhile now, and lets be honest, i dont think id ever stop. They currently gave items away for FREE! Yes, i just said FREE!! and what was even better, that they were some of the items i wanted but kept selling out, so i dead set got almost everything in every colour and got some pieces for my younger siblings.

 Iphone Case:

Currently i have placed my phone into a phone wallet case, as i keep dropping my phone and scared id smash it one day... but i couldnt help but buy this inspired Chanel Nail Polish iphone case.
The case doesn't have bubbles on it, like the photo shows. i just haven't taken the protective case off yet < lazzzzzy! Anyways, they are available in many colours and for iphone 5's. Its a rubber case, but would of been better for hard case, but honestly i dont even care... ive wanted one for awhile now. So instead of painting your nails, paint your phone with you favorite chanel polish.

-Chanel Inspired Nail Polish iPhone Covers *461 BLUE SATIN*- $6.99


i love everything about sunnies. i honestly own like a thousand pairs, but yet i'll keep buying more. I like how different they all are, colours, shades, sizes and designs. Hoping to trend these over the summer months.

Even my dad loved the cute leopard rabbit ones above, that he tried them straight on and said.. "id wear these"

Each pair was FREE!!!



Just the little things can honestly make your face look even more gorgeous, earring can actually shape your face to make it look slimmer, longer or smaller.
As working in retail, i can only wear studs, so snapping up a few earrings were awesome!

-Gold Wish Bone - $1.99
- Gold Infinity Studs - $0.99
- Gold Skulls - Free
- Arrow Studs (not pictured) - FREE


personally, its so hard to find a decent ring(s) that i like wearing, or want to wear more then once. I brought these 3 designs (skull, bear and rabbit) in both gold and silver. As my younger sisters were actually looking for tiny animal rings, i was lucky enough to get these for them... and some extra for myself :)
- Gold & Silver Skull - FREE
- Gold & Silver Bear - FREE
- Gold & Silver Rabbit - FREE


Mini necklaces have always seem to be in fashion. Everyone has heard of the saying " less is more". These two inspired Marc Jacobs necklaces were to die for. I brought them both in gold and wear them together. They're the same length, so i extended the bow one to hang a little lower then the star, to add more detail and for more of a statement look. These are perfect for everyday wear and stack them up for a night look.

- MJ Inspired Dainty Star Necklace- $4.99
- MJ Inspired Dainty Heart Necklace- $4.99


Big Statements:

If you know me personally, youd know how much i love huge necklaces. Ive always seen them as the knot to an outfit, that can really tie everything together or even make an outfit really stand out. With Love Kirsten had this necklace in 3 colours. Coral, Silver or Pink.. i brought the pink, as i don't have many pink accessories and it'd look perfect to mix and match with your summer clothes.
Also brought another huge gold statement. My whole family said i was crazy for buying it, as its was massive, but to me, it was pure haven & would be the mother of all my necklaces. haha. I honestly cant wait to wear this out.. (find picture below)
- Gold Statement Necklace - $12.99
- Pink Statement Necklace - $12.99

4 Beauty Products I've Finished - July 2013

E.L.F. Hypershine Gloss
11 Colours Available
RRP: $2

 When first opening the gloss, i had to twist the clicked closer to 30 times, rather than the 7-10 listed on the product. colour was a light pink shade ( labeled BERRY CHERRY), wore it everyday at work & got so many comments on it. Only need to apply a twist worth of gloss on top of your lips as the texture is very thick. Be aware that your hair may get stuck to your lips, but that didn't bother me as much, cause a lot of glosses do that. It comes with a brush applicator and you twist the end for product to come out. I really love this product. The colours are gorgeous, they stay on for awhile and they give you tons of colour. You don't have to apply a lot just to get it to show up! I brought this item in a 3 pack from E.L.F's website. They're on sale for $1.

Australis - Fresh & Flawless Pressed Powder.
3 Tones Available.
RRP: $11.40

This truly is my holy grail press powder product. I first starting using this powder after i had read and watch youtube beauty gurus rave on about it. After using it, im honestly so glad i brought it. It gives me a flawless face with excellent coverage and a fraction of the price of any high or low end brand. I use this powder in two different ways, after foundation, i use the compact round applicator sponge that comes with the product and pus the powder onto my face, for a clean, matte look. Then go back over with a powder brush to even it out. This product stays all day, and still look fresh when i get home at midnight. 

Toni & Guy Shampoo and Conditioner (Damaged Hair)
RRP: $15.99 Each

Ive coloured my hair so many times that Ive honestly lost count, but i know for a fact that my hair has suffered so much, that I'm truly paying for it now. My hair has never been really damaged, but i thought using Toni & Guy damaged sham & con would be the start of recovering my hair, bringing it back to life. The packaging of the products is simple but the exact to each, that i always reach for the conditioner bottle instead of the shower or sometimes the other way round. Ive used them for over a month now, and OMG! my hair feels amazing, its really helped repair, added shin, stopped split ends and most importantly looks and feels healthier.
