Escape to Rotorua


Over the weekend my family and I went to Rotorua because my sister was doing the Tough Girl and Guy challenge for school and we ended up staying for the rest of the weekend.  It was amazing, it felt like we were there for a whole week and was nice to just relax and not stress about uni stuff.
We went down early Friday morning as the challenge started at 11 and my parents wanted to watch my sister race. It was FREEZING, the sky was clear but the wind was icy cold and I felt sorry for the racers who had to jump into a pond and race around wet.
My sisters friends family also went down and they and my sister did the Zorb on Friday afternoon and on Saturday went to Agroventures and did the Swoop and the Bungy. My sister was going to do those two but she decided against it and did the Shweeb instead.  I took a video of my sister's friends doing the Swoop which you can see here. It's safe to say I will not be doing that ever.
At Agroventrures there were animals that really caught everybody's attention...
They were pretty huge
On Sunday there was a Fair/Craft market and there was the biggest inflatable slide I've ever seen

My sister went on it on Saturday which was ironic since she didn't want to do the Swoop... 
Of course I took some pretty pictures of the lake
Like I said I really enjoyed the trip and was sad to come home and face reality.
Hope you all enjoyed this post!

Lime Crime - Glamour 101


Not too long ago Pagan Marie Boutique announced they were having pre-orders for all their Lime Crime products.  I of course couldn't pass up this opportunity and quickly went on and bought another lipstick.  This is my third time buying from Pagan Marie, it's an amazing online store and sells awesome clothes as well and the best thing is shipping is free for NZ orders and delivery is very fast.

This time around I went for Glamour 101 which as you can see is a dark, wintery almost brown red.  It's been on my wish list for a long while but was always sold out so when I saw it I put it in my basket with no hesitation.  Like with my other Lime Crime lipsticks it's very creamy, smells nice and the colour is very pigmented.  My lips are really annoying in that there is no clear 'line' between them and my face so when I put lipstick on it tends to bleed and just looks messy so the use of a lip liner is a must.
I really love the colour, I think it really suites me.  My lips have been really bad this winter, very dry and chapped and the state of them can be clearly seen when I have this lipstick on :/ It just doesn't look good. I really need to invest in some lip scrub and be very liberal with the lip balm.
Hope you all enjoyed this post!

My Favourite Things #15

Shaaanxo Vlogs
Shannon recently went on a Contiki trip with some other YouTube stars and this week she uploaded some vlogs about her trip. She went around Europe to a number of countries which is something I really really want to do.  I especially love the videos which included Italy, it's one of my dream destinations and would love to see the Colosseum and the Vatican some day.  You can see all of her vlogs of the trip here.
Vatican City - St Peter's Square
Trip to Rotorua
Tomorrow/today when your all reading this I will be on my way to Rotorua.  My sister is doing this Tough Girl and Guy challenge (I think that's it) for here P.E class so we're all going apart from my brother.  I am so excited, it's like a mini little break and Rotorua is one of my favourite places to visit.  I'll try to take some photos so I can blog about it next week.
Chocolate Sundae
Last night/at this very moment as I writing this on Thursday my sister just drove off to McDonalds and got dessert YUS! I always get a chocolate sundae, always have and always will. It's one of the most delicious things ever and I'm always sad when I've finished it.
Hope you enjoyed this post and have a great weekend :D

Arts and Crafts


Another exciting thing that happened on Saturday (well for me at least) was when my Mum got me a wooden block thing that says Paris.

I have mentioned numerous times how much I love Paris even though I have never been there so I was excited when she gave this to me.
When I was younger I was very creative and always wanted to paint things and make them pretty.  Getting the wooden Paris cut-out kind of sparked back up the creative side of me that's been dormant for the last couple of years and I've been trying to think about how I could decorate it. 
So far I think I want to paint it white first (this might change) and I want to have a pretty little delicate decoration on it like flowers or maybe infuse the white with hints of pink.  I dunno, I don't have an idea set in stone and would love to hear any ideas you might have.  I'm pretty sure of the location I'm going to put it, above my canvas's of the Eiffel Tower and once painted I think it would look nice against the blue wall.
Hope you all enjoyed this post!
