My tanning essentials.

Warm weather hot Brisbane suddenly and I wore shorts for the first time to get a bit of sun on my super pale legs. I don't tan naturally very well so I have to rely on a self-tanners to give me a bit of summery glow. These are the products I've been loving lately.

1. J by Jennifer Hawkins tanning glove. I find that it is the sturdiest tanning glove I've used (other fell apart after few washes). It has been going strong for me for over 10 tans giving me a smooth and even application each time. 

2. 1000 Hour little black after tan dress. Two things went through my head when I saw it - where have you been all my life and why haven't I thought of it first. This dress is perfect for tanning - loose, soft, features a shelf bra that doesn't dig in and has a high-low hem so you don't leave tan marks when you sit down. Comes with a bonus hair tie too. 

3. Bondi Sands foam in dark.
Very very good tanning foam that it often very reasonably priced. It has very minimal fake tan smell, gives you a gorgeous and even colour due to pink base and is easy to apply. 

4. Bondi Sands gradual tan.
Super moisturising gradual tan that smells like cocoa butter and leaves no residue behind. It makes my skin feel soft and moisturised and I can see a hint of colour just after one application.

5. Garnier body tonic sugar scrub.
I've been using this product for years. Probably my favourite body scrub so far. It exfoliates well, has gorgeous citrus scent and doesn't cost very much. I will keep buying it for as long as they keep making it.

My recent purchases


I had fair few changes in the last couple of months. Such as finding a new job and going from having three months off to working full time. Hence why I can finally spend some money on little luxuries. 

I do wear prescription glasses and have a health cover so when it rolled over on the first of July I decided to treat myself to a new pair. I stopped at 
Laubman & Pank at Carindale and fell in love with Ray-Ban Erika sunglasses. A week later they got fitted with my prescription and viola I have a new pair of awesome sunglasses. 

I have been shopping on Strawberrynet again and picked up new Guerlain Allegoria fragrance - Limon Verde who his a refreshing sweet green citrus. Plus I couldn't resist another Nesti Dante soap. I've discovered them few months ago and they are my favourite soaps right now. They are all beautifully scented and have a huge variety to choose from, create gorgeous silky leather and fill my whole bathroom with gorgeous scent.
