Autumn Favorites 2017

Hi! Hi!

Whoops. I nearly forgot about this series lol. Tbh, Autumn in Perth is always so mild - this year it barely even felt like Autumn for much of it. XD
But none the less, I still want to share the things I've been liking and enjoying this season!

Skin care;

Lush Eau Roma Water Toner Water

I was having a some skin 'issues' once the seasons changed and I felt like my skin was getting a little on the oily side but I didn't want to change my whole skin care range (too expensive lol) so I just opted to include a toner and I'm glad I did and I'm also glad I purchased this one.
Not only does this leave my skin feeling lovely it also smells beautiful as well.

Etude House Play 101 Stick Oil 

I kind of purchased this on a whim online because I thought it was an interesting product - you can use it for a variety of uses like as a lip balm, cuticle oil, on your hair etc.
I've actually been using this on my temples at the end of the day and I like that this absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy texture.

Make Up; 

Etude House Blooming Lips in BE101

I have to admit, I'm not the biggest fan of dark nudes that are trending right now (Looks amazing on everyone else - not convinced I can pull off) but I've been trying to do the same as everyone and rocking the nude although it's a lot lighter.
I like this because it's flattering on the lips - not drying, doesn't show off anything unflattering like dry patches or lines and lasts relatively okay. I do have to reapply it over time but not super frequently.
Plus the tube is really cute without being over the top.

Etude House Pink Skull Lip Tint Twin Shot in PK003 Pink x Pumpkin Shot

On the opposite end to the nude lip stick thing, I've been loving this more berry, standard autumnal colour.I normally wouldn't have seen myself wearing this but I've actually been liking it and I feel like it suits my skin quite nicely. It's not too berry in colour (I'm not a fan of those tones on myself).


 Liz Lisa Faux Suede Trapezoid Skirt in Pink - here

 I was going out and dressing up a little bit more earlier in the season but lately I've just been working a lot so I haven't had much time to go out and/ or get dressed up cute but when I did I would reach for this skirt was the most.
I love the colour, shape and fit. Bonus is it goes with lots of different tops and it's easy to wear and style.

Liz Lisa Nosuri Tops in White - Here

I liked wearing this with the skirt above or really any skirt. The style seemed to go with everything really well and I liked the way it looks. Plus it looks good both on it's own or under a jacket.

 Liz Lisa Short-sleeved blouse bowtie in White - Here

Admittedly I haven't worn this a lot but every time I did I really liked it and enjoyed it and I liked how I looked in it. I love blouses with bows... I think any blouse is instantly made better with a bow.



Liar! Who is the Liar? 

This app recently got a part two or a second season called 'Office Deception' and I've been shamelessly playing this constantly over the month. 
I really like the concept of this game and while I don't think the story is perfect - it's a lot of fun! It's very addictive to play and I like the concept of calling liars out with evidence and the events. If you're familiar with a game called 'Phoenix Wright' it's a little similar to that. 
One thing I like about this app is I think it's really helped my short term memory. I normally can't remember things that happened not that long ago and I noticed that my memory has improved a little over time which I wasn't expecting but is definitely a good result.

That's all for today's post! I hope you enjoyed it...

[Japan Crate] Kira Kira Crate 07 May

Hi! Hi!

 This month's Kira Kira Crate is super cute! The booklet has a pretty cherry blossom pattern.

 Soy Milk Yogurt Face Mask

Face masks seem pretty standard in each Kira Kira Crate every month but that's okay! Since they're only one time use I don't really mind. The packaging is really cute and tropical for this and milk/yogurt products are normally good for my skin so I'm looking forward to using this one!

Lux Sakura Dream Body Soap 

I'm actually really excited by this - which is really dumb because it's just soap lol. I really love cherry blossom scent but this is actually jasmine and cherry blossom! I really love jasmine scent and I'm excited to try it!

My Melody BB Cream

I'm not sure what the difference between regular BB cream and 'Premium' is but okay. The packaging is really cute but the product is quite small. I like the look of the 'older' (I don't really know what to call it? Original maybe?) My Melody. I have no idea what brand or who makes this but I did notice it's only for sale in Japan? I don't know, I haven't decided if I want to try this personally or if I want to gift it on to someone at this point.

Natural Jonjac Sponge for Facial Wash

 Ohmygosh, this is fabulous. I've used this since I received it and it's been really great. This is a sponge for cleaning your face and I've really liked using this recently - it's so gentle and easy to use! I used to have a clarisonic and I have to admit it is like... 100x better. It just leaves the skin feels so silky and soft after using it.

Tansan Kakumei Carbonated Water Face Mask

 To be honest... I'm most likely not going to use this. I don't particularly enjoy putting my face underwater and no matter what the skin benefits... I'll probably pass lol.

Rilakkuma Bath Ball

This is a super cute bath bomb! I love baths and bath bombs so this is a nice! It smelt really good when I first received it - even through the packet. This is meant to smell like honey but it kind of has that artificial honey scent.
The bath bomb also has a little 'prize' inside. I haven't used this yet but I don't really mind which on based on the illustrations.

I actually liked and will find a use for a few different things in this box. I really can't wait to use the bath bomb and the body wash. The sponge is amazing and I'll have to repurchase them in the future for sure!

That's all for this month's box!
