My Weekend - Birthdays !

Southbank, Brisbane

I've been procrastinating a whole lot this past week because I haven't started a number of assignments that are due in about 3-4 weeks times so I've been feeling...free? So I've been doing a lot of non-uni-related stuff lol

I got to watch The Avengers!! Apparently it was a 2.5hr film but it didn't feel like to me. Perhaps I've gotten use to watching films that run that long now thanks to uni. It's a good film but I personally wouldn't want to watch it again! Superheroes and action are not my favorite genres but The Avengers did have comedy in it =) I still enjoyed it but I just don't see what all the hype is about.

Then after the film, my bf & I did a mini photoshoot because I brought along my DSLR. It mainly consisted of coupley photos so I'm not gonna post them up lol we were really just practicing our photography skills so a number of them were blurry or were taken at unflattering angles. Here's one I'm happy to share but according to the lovely bf, I looked stoned T_T (buddy, you took this one!)

Attended a friend's birthday at a bar in the city. It was actually pretty good! I'm not fond of bars or pubs but it was just a great chill out session and meeting new people where you could actually hear one another talk!

Attended the Buddha Festival and just ate and ate LOL Buddha Festival is the same every year but it was another great day to just hang out with the bf =) (FYI: Buddha Festival is held in celebration for Buddha's Birthday)


This part of the show was pretty cool and still baffles me. There are two performers and every now and then their mask would just switch to a completely different mask. You can see in the first photo the lady has a BLUE mask on but later on changes throughout the performance. It's really intriguing!!! Because there is nothing underneath their costumes (or none that the audience could see) that would trigger the change. Initially, I thought it was whenever they touched their mask with their hands but at one point, both their hands were up in the air and it automatically changed!

[REVIEW] Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque

I first learned about this hair care product through another blogger and was immediately interested in it. My hair has been through so much damage (dyeing, blow drying, straightening & curling blah so much ==) so I had been on the lookout for a haircare product.

So...What is it?
According to the website, it states: "Our Deep Repair Masque is a hair reconstructor that will penetrate and rebuild damaged hair for improved shine and elasticity.
- Enriched with Macadamia & Argan oils
- Deep nourishment & long-lasting conditioning
- Ultra-conditioning hair reconstruction.

It's a 250ml/8.5 fl oz tub. The product itself is thick and rich and looks kind of gross to me T__T

How to Use?
Liberally comb through clean, wet hair and allow up to seven (7) minutes of penetration before rinsing.

I use my hands/fingers to scoop out the product then apply to my hair. Applying is pretty easy and isn't messy.
The tricky thing about the instructions it doesn't say whether to wash out with warm or cold water...so I've been using cold water to rinse it, since I heard cold water can help make your hair less frizzy. After I wash out, my hair is SUPERRR SMOOTH & SILKY!

This part really confused me as I was washing the product out. I could FEEL instantly how smooth my hair was and kept washing & washing, thinking the product was still in my hair but it wasn't! My hair was silky and felt so GOOD to touch (that sounds weird...), I couldn't stop touching my hair after I did the treatment~

Negatives About the Product

  • The Price T_T

I had to buy this for around $40AUD and that is expensive ><

Final Verdict
I love how amazing and lovely my hair feels after using it but I'm not going to repurchase. I'm certain there are other haircare products that can do the same thing for a lower price.

Roses and Roses...


I was bored yesterday so I decided to play Dress Up & Model lol I was actually deciding what look to do for this coming Friday since it is someone's birthday party. And I thought since I'm all dressed up I'd try and do a mini photoshoot with myself. Can I just say, it is so hard T___T Being the model, the photographer, the props person and the makeup person all by yourself is pretty tough!!!

I'm kind of regretting I didn't purchase the DSLR that had a flip-out screen (easy to selca!! XD) but I made do with what I had. I had a whole box full of rose petals from my film assessment so I thought I'd reused them for fun. But it was so hard to time the throwing of the rose petals correctly because they fall pretty quickly and then I'd end up some blurry photo of looking retarded lol.

Here are some of the nice ones out of the hundred photos I took. Looking at all the photos lined up I realised how inconsistent my Photoshopping skills are lol sorry !! Please don't hurt me ~~
