A QUICK GUIDE TO CAIRO, EGYPT


Cairo, Egypt is so rich in history and culture (both ancient and modern). There is so many things to do and see in Egypt and I can honestly say I had the most amazing experience. Standing in front of those gigantic Pyramids of Giza was honestly breath taking. Climbing inside of the pyramids was very hot and had a lot of stairs (helloooo unexpected cardio exercise). It was also very claustrophobic at times inside the pyramids, but definitely a great experience! In Cairo, Egypt there are extremely nice people but also some not, so watch out for the scammers and people in the markets that try to stop you! Don't talk with strangers or trust them, especially those who seem to be super friendly.

SONDER DESSERT | BRISBANE CAFE



Over the weekend I visited Sonder Dessert cafe, a Japanese tea and dessert house which has the most quirkiest and coolest desserts ever. I must say, visiting Sonder Dessert cafe on a Saturday night around 9:00 PM was not the best idea ever. The line was huge and my best friend and I had to wait outside and there was no free table - it was so pack!! So we decided just to do take away, a order a mini dessert to share! I definitely need to go back again but during the day and try out their teas and other Japanese inspired desserts! 


They  also have a wide range of ice creams and one of the flavours was black sesame (I wonder how that taste like)!! 


What's your favourite cafe?

THE BACH LIVING | INTERIOR INSPO


A few weeks ago, when I visited Jojo's Restaurant and Bar I stumble across this super cute interior store right next to the restaurant called the "Bach Living". The Bach is a New Zealand term for a holiday home by the sea, which has beautiful furniture, homewares and a few fashion items. I thought I would share some images that I took while I was there. I was simply in love with all the furniture and homewares, defintely will be coming back here to decorate my house in the future.

MY EVENING SKINCARE ROUTINE


Happy April everyone! I thought I would start this month off sharing my evening skincare routine. Over the past month I have changed most of my skincare products such as the moisturiser, toner and cleanser. I promise you that this is not a sponsored post by Avene (even though I wish it was).  I first fell in love with Avene skin care products, since I started using their Avene Cleanser Micellar water and after a couple of months later I decided to change my whole skincare range to Avene products! 


I first remove my make up with using Avene Cleanance Micellar water with a big cotton pad and then I wash my face with water and add a bit of Avene Cleanance Cleansing gel onto the palm of my hands and rub it onto my face. I then use my Clarisonic Mia 2 to remove any make up that I didn't get before and wash my face again. After that, I put some of the Avene Gentle toning lotion onto a cotton pad and dab it onto my face and end the whole process with Avene Hydrance Optimal light hydrating cream. I sometimes at night use the Avene TriAcneal Expert mask and leave it overnight to get rid of any stubborn imperfections residual marks on my face!


The Avene products have been working on my skin so far but I'm always on the hunt for new skin care products. I definitely want to try Drunk Elephant products (heard some many good reviews on them) and also I want to go see a skin dermatologist!

What are your favourite skincare products?
