Blog Revamp + September Bellabox: Spring Party Essentials

I'M BACKKK!!! Its been so long since I've last posted something or visited anyone's blog for that matter - please forgive me; I've missed reading everyone's blogs and mingling with you all :( ! I have finally finished the majority of my assessments for now and currently on my midsem break. However I still have two assessments to start on, due in less than a week, and with work in the way I can't seem to find the time to post :( Hopefully I can get back into my mojo (that's what I always say...) despite my inactiveness on most social media. Also, how do you like my new blog layout kudos to Kayla from Rockaboo Designs? :D I've been dying to show you guys for a long while but it took a little longer than expected but it's finally here!

With my return, I want to start off with this month's Bellabox! This month Bellabox has partnered with Cleo to bring us some spring party essentials. I love how the products in the September box is somewhat different, which is always a bonus because I am so sick of receiving moisturisers or cleansers every single month. One small issue that bugged me was trying to track my parcel; there was no signs of activity until about two days later in comparison to Auspost which is almost instant.

Lets find out what was in this month's box if you haven't seen already!

ASAP Pure Mineral Eye Pencil - Brown
Full size - RRP $20
I don't particularly like using pencil eyeliners as I prefer gel but I don't mind receiving this. I'm not too sure if I received this in the right shade though as it looks more grey-black than brown when swatched. I would have liked more if the formula was more creamy and pigmented. Aside from that, it contains antioxidants and Vitamin E which is great for people with sensitive skin or eyes.

Manicare Glam Kelly Lashes 
Full size - 1 pair RRP $11.95
I don't use false lashes since I'm so n00b at applying them but they may come in handy one day! These pair of falsies have a criss-cross design where the lashes are longer towards the centre. My favourite type of falsies are the criss-cross ones simply because they look so natural and make the eyes appear bigger, yay! :)

Elegant Touch Envy Wraps - Candy Drops
Full size - 1 Pack: 18 wraps RRP $8.99
The colourful polkadot design is super cute however I'm not a fan of nail wraps because I don't find them very long lasting and the sizing tends to poorly fit my nails; I would prefer to paint my nails instead. However I might try these out because they look too cute to pass up.

UPDATE: This is how they look when applied! I find that there weren't many sizes to choose from so it was hard to choose the right size.

Footcare Gel Ball of Foot Cushions 
Full size - 2 pairs RRP $8.99
If you don't wear heels regularly like me and suffer from aching feet from wearing heels, then these are great! I actually don't know wear my other ones are so I don't mind receiving these. Another option would simply be to bring a pair of foldable flats when you're out!

Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud Masque 
5g sample - 10ml RRP $3.99
I don't have any blemishes nor do I have blemish-prone skin so I might give this away. Plus, I don't like using mud masks because I find them messy and prefer to use sheet masks. I wouldn't mind trying it out though.

Schick Hydro Silk Razor
Full size - RRP $9.99
I received this in one of the earlier boxes from Her Fashion Box and I love it! The blades are very sharp making shaving so easy and it also moisturises at the same time when in contact with water. The cartridges are disposable and can be purchased separately which is a bonus. Not sure if I really need another one but hey, having a back up doesn't hurt :P

Garnier Ambre Solaire Natural Bronzer Spray 
Full size - 150ml RRP $14.95
My least favourite product out of the box. I already have two unused bottles of self tanning products and I don't really need another one... I don't even use fake tan but maybe I'll start? Quick question - would you ladies mind if I add in one of the bottles into a giveaway? I think someone else would get more use out of it instead of it lying around in my room.

Last but no least, a bonus October issue of Cleo mag was included! I haven't read any magazines in a while because I can't justify spending $7-8 on a magazine each month and most of the time it's the same thing every year. 

So that's all for now! This was the only beauty box I received in September and I'm still patiently waiting to receive Lust Have It's new FAB box, which is probably at the post office right now as I write. I hope to mingle with you all properly very soon once I finish my last two assessments and when time permits! If any of you have Twitter, please follow me or tweet me if you already do if you want to chat! :) Anyways have a beautiful (long) weekend ladies!
