Travel Diary: North Island, NZ

photo-27-9-16-3-22-16-am

I fell in love with New Zealand when I visited Queenstown in 2015, so before I jetted off to London, I took a short but jam packed little trip to North Island, New Zealand (in Sept’16) and stopped by Auckland, Waitomo Caves, Rotorua and Matamata.

My trip seemed forever ago and after looking back at all of my photos, I’m surprised I still remember certain details. A quick overview of what I got up to is:

  • Auckland Sky Tower Jump
  • Waitomo Glowworm Caves
  • Ruakuri Caves
  • Black Labyrinth black water rafting (tubing)
  • Huka Falls
  • Wai-O Tapu Thermal Wonderland
  • Kaituna River white water rafting
  • Polynesian Spa
  • Redwoods Treewalk
  • Hobbiton Movie Set
  • Hike to Wairere Falls lookout

Product Recommendation: Dior Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm

s1223338-main-Lhero

Over the past 2 years, I’ve been obsessing over high end lip balms and I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect little miracle maker. By Terry’s Baume de Rose used to be my holy grail lip balm all throughout 2012, but after losing that very expensive jar, I decided it was time to try a few different brands. After purchasing quite a few on a whim one time while I was browsing in David Jones, it’s safe to say that I’ve found something much better than By Terry’s Baume de Rose, and for half the price as well. This product is honestly a must have for damaged lips and for those of you wanting your lips to feel as soft as a baby’s bottom. I cannot rate and recommend this enough!

Dior’s Crème de Rose is a smoothing, plumping lip balm containing SPF 10. Claims to hydrate, soothe, re-plump and protect the lips from sun damage. An intensely nourishing lip balm that has a delicate rose scent making it super addictive to use day and night.

For the past few years I’ve been glued to using the Clarisonic as my choice of sonic cleansing facial device. Up until about 8 months ago, that all changed when I was introduced to the Foreo Luna Mini by YouTube sensation, Chloe Morello.

The Foreo Luna Mini is a revolutionary T-sonic cleansing facial device that is small in size, but big on results. In just 1 minute every morning and night, the Luna Mini will help to rid your skin of blemish-causing impurities, leaving your skin looking healthier, brighter and clearer.

Travel Diary: Tokyo, Japan

IMG_4196

Japan is a country I’ve always wanted to visit ever since I was a little girl watching Sailor Moon everyday before and after school and playing Pokémon on my Nintendo Game Boy for hours on end. Over the years, my love for Japan has evolved through their delicious cuisine, their crazy and unique fashion, their advanced technology and their amazing culture.

It was nothing short of a perfect first trip where I finally got to experience everything Toyko had to offer me from fresh sushi at my beck and call to roaming the busy streets of Shinjuku during peak hour. I pretty much ticked off everything from my to-do list for Tokyo, except for the Tsujiki Fish Market (which I’m hoping to visit upon my next trip into Japan during cherry blossom season!) but seeing Mt. Fuji- a world heritage site in the flesh made up for that.
