The nail polish removing trick that you need to know.

I don't wear nail polish very often... Partly due to the fact that I just can't seem to apply it neatly, partly due to the fact it chips far too easily and annoys me, but mainly because I hat trying to take it off.

Once you've applied a few layers, removing nail polish with a cotton pad and nail polish remover is a massive chore, and takes far longer than it needs to, (well it does for me at least!)

Enter the Maybelline Express Remover, my little pot of joy.
You put your finger in the jar that contains nail polish remover-soaked sponges, twist it around, and voila! Nail polish removed in seconds! And while it doesn't seem like much, not having to struggle with scrubbing off nail polish, makes me incredibly happy!

What beauty hacks or lazy girls beauty advice do you have?

What's in my bag? - Miss Shop 'Tokya'

I just updated my handbag. It was one that I loved, but it had gotten to the point where it was too tatty to pass as a bag anymore. So I popped into Myer and the first bag I saw I fell in love with.
the Miss Shop 'Tokya' Sling in Black is a simple yet stylish bag. With one main zipped pocket, with a flap over the top, and a small zipped pocket at the back, it manages to fit all the rubbish that I carry around on a daily basis and more.
It's made from a textured faux leather, (I assume it's fake because of the $29.95 price tag), and has gold detailing.

So what do I cram in the bag?

Most importantly I always have my keys, wallet (mine is this one from Billabong), sunglasses, and phone.

Next I have a little pouch that contains a compact mirror, some concealer (I have an Arbonne one and a Collection Lasting Perfection one), my Travalo with the perfume I'm wearing, a roller ball version of Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs,  a couple of lip balms (I have the Carmex Moisture Plus Lip Balm and the Sukin Nourishing Lip Treatment), and two lip options (Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella, and Rimmel Apocalips in Luna).

And finally I have the important bits such as, a bottle of water, pain killers, headphones, a pen or two, breath mints, breath spray, bandaids, and another lip option! (J.Lo's nude from the L'Oreal Collection Exclusive).

What do you carry around in your bag?
