Chanel Illusion D’Ombre – Swatches

CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre – Mirifique

CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre – Mirifique

Chanel’s range of long wear luminous eyeshadow, Illusion D’Ombre hit the stores quite some time ago, however I am very late to jump on this bandwagon.  Very out of character for me!  The tipping point was when I watched a YouTube video by CamiLovesKiwi and...

Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream

Have you ever eaten Yogo?  That is exactly what the Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream reminded me of when I peeled back the foil lid from inside the jar.  It looked good enough to eat. I was inspired to purchase this product after watching a YouTube video by...

I had one of those days today, and turned up to an event in South Melbourne a whole week early!  The only upside was that I was able to visit an old haunt, Passionfoods.  This is a fantastic little shop at 219 Ferrars Street, South Melbourne that sells organic...

Gluten free at SUSHI SUSHI
