August Favourites | Beauty

Hey all! I skipped out July.. actually July skipped me out, but I'm here for my August Favourites! Before we get into it, let's not forget this week's Weekly Wednesday Blog Hop. I've been so busy (I really need another word for it really), that I haven't been able to reach as many of the lovely blogs on this hope as I'd like. But hopefully I do this week! This is a really great hop, so be sure to click the button and check out the linky list :).

Nicole by O.P.I. You Can! | Swatches

Hey all! I know I hardly do nail swatches, but I have a few newer polishes to show you. I picked up this one on clearance in Bed, Bath and Beyond (yes I had no idea they even sold make up). I think it was about $3-4USD and I had used a coupon as well. So YAY for the savings! These are usually $8, if you go in a BBB check the clearance bin for nice polishes.  This is Nicole by O.P.I. "You Can!". I love what the description says on their website!

The Week that Flew | Aloha Friday Blog Hop

Aloha Hoapili and Happy Friday!!  I'm happy and sad it's about to be the weekend. There were so many things I wanted to do this week, but didn't get around to. Sigh. Let's hope today and the rest of the weekend can be as productive as possible. Thank you all again for joining me as I co-host this lovely blog hop. I've been discovering lots of new blogs and finding some real gems! Honestly, I really want to apologise for how long it takes me to reply to your lovely comments. I do appreciate every one of them.

Aside from AFBH I just started a collab with a couple girls like self, dabbling into style-blogging. For  me it's just a small dabble, but for others, it's the main aim of their blog. We put together a Back to School Style lookbook, if you want to call it that. Showing you what we would wear for various basic occasions when you're going to school. Yes,I'm around that age where I'm just now finishing uni, but I still enjoy Back to School blog posts, contests and all that hoo haa, even though I'm not a huge fan of school itself hahah.

Anyway, let's get onto this hop, this week there is a contest going on. So try your luck!



Happy Aloha Friday!

First Day and Easy Going Outfits |Back to School Style Collab!

Hey all! I've been working on this for a while and although it's not a huge moment, I'm still very proud and happy to be finally carrying this out.While browsing on the Lucky Contributor community, I found these gorgeous girls (each with great blogs showcasing their personal style) and I've very happy to have teamed up with them on this two-part Back to School Style Collaboration. So this week and next week, you can look forward posts on each of our blogs with outfits for School. This is big of a long post, but it's worth it! Be sure to leave us your comments about what you like to wear to school too.

College Makeup look | Beauty

Hey all! I was getting ready to take some pics for my Back to School outfits post (hopefully going up tomorrow) and I quickly created this make up look using the Smashbox eye shadow trio I talked about here. I loved how it came out. It's so simple, yet pretty. Or so I think, you tell me.

Also let's not forget the WWBH, click the button below!




I think this is college appropriate especially for the first day, or if you're going out after classes. Very subtle make up. I love it.

Smashbox Photo Op Eye shadow Trio in Proof Sheet | Swatches & Review

Hey all! I'm sure this is actually a pretty old trio, as I got it as part of a giftset from a CCO back in New York, but these eye shadows are timeless. I'm not even sure if this was limited edition, or if it's still available =/. BUT these are the perfect easy neutrals to carry in your purse. The Proof Sheet eyeshadow trio is a real gem, something about this trio encourages me to wear it every chance I get.

Aloha Hoapili! I'm glad to see that my blog posts have been getting back to normal this week (you can see my schedule on the top right-hand side of the blog). I'm so grateful for all of you who have been stopping by and leaving comments on the blog. Sorry it takes me so long to reply.

Maybelline Color Tattoo | Swatches

Hey all! It's no secret that the beauty community has been obsessed with these paint pot dupes from the time they came out, and with good reason too. The Maybelline Color Tattoos are amazing with pigmentation and staying power. This is not going to be a review of them though, there are plenty of those floating around the internet. But I am going to share swatches I have of the colour I picked up, 45 Bold Gold.

Let's not forget the Weekly Wednesday Blog hop! Click the button below and get to hopping!


I've always wanted a really nice, vibrant gold eyeshadow!

Stretching a Relaxer | Hair update #7

Hey all! As many of you know I've had relaxed hair for probably a year by now and I have my ups and downs with it. Relaxed hair takes constant attention as you have to get the roots touched up every 6-8 weeks as some hairdressers or boxed kits suggest.  Sometimes it can be a bit pricey to keep up with, especially being a student. Just recently, I stretched my relaxer for 6 months. Yes, a loooong time! So today I'm going to be sharing my experience with you.

First off, why in heaven's name would I want to stretch my relaxer? For reasons other than money, some ladies stretch their relaxers to prevent overlapping of the processed ends when the new growth gets re-touched. Others use it to take a break from the harsh chemicals in relaxers, while some use the time to strengthen and treat their hair while it grows out. Relaxed hair is no easy task, as it's prone to breakage once it's dry.

Winnings and Round up of Crop Over Weekend | Festival Fridays

Remember these cars from one of my earlier Festival Friday Posts?

These were just some of the winnings for the successful competitors of the Crop Over Events. I'll be rounding up all of the winners in the post and telling you about the Sleepless Weekend!

Let's Start with the Kids :)! I was watching this competition along from home and I quite enjoyed it. The younger calypsonians are definitely holding the future in their hands. Many of the songs had good lyrics and of, course as they are children, you can't expect every execution to be perfect, but it was very good. The Junior Calypso Monarch was won by Quinn P in the 8- 12 category, singing "Living With HIV" and in the 13-18 category by Honesty with the song "Respect de Disable". The top prizes included a cash prize, staycation vouchers, electronic gadgets and huge trophies. For the placement of the other top 3 contestants and all of the prizes, you can click here.

Turquoise or Violet ends? | Hair

Hey all! I don't know if you saw my post from Friday, but it was going to be a Sleepless, eventful, busy weekend for me. Sadly it even run into this week, as my posting schedule is a little off. Crop Over was good and well enjoyed even though I was working, but more on that this Friday. Let's not forget the Weekly Wednesday Blog Hop! Click the button below and get hopping :)

Today wanted to do a hair post on these two colours I'm stuck between. I once had purple hair. Yes, no joke. It wasn't the purple I wanted, but it was fun enough to make me content. Now, 4 years later I want to do something fun with my hair again!





Look at that colour vibrancy!
