Sticker nails are still a pretty new thing for me. I can do with nail sticker decals but using it on the whole nail… is still quite strange.
Nonetheless, I was sent some from Fing’rs so I decided to try it out!!
I usually change my nail polish and design every 3 days because it always ends up chipping or after the 3 days, I’ll need to reapply the same shade on top! My nails are also quite prone to chipping due to the acetone I use to remove my polishes.
Fing’rs Flirt Nail Bling
Results of the nail stickers after a quick application. I think the whole process took me less than 3 minutes to apply on one hand! The application is super easy, but I think the time taken to “perfect” the corners and sides of the stickers is the most time-consuming!
Overall, I do think the nails turned out amazing. It looks like stamps on the nails except in 3D. I like there is also bling on the nails so the effect is super stand out rather than just prints on the nails.
I don’t think I’d use any “plain/single coloured” nail stickers (I’ve seen some of these which have no designs on it) because applying the nail stickers would be more time consuming than painting your nails a single shade, but I’d definitely consider the ones which look too complicated to paint yourself or too time-consuming!
Fing’rs range can be purchased from leading discount department stores including Priceline, Target, Big W, Kmart and leading pharmacies nationally.
I’ve seen this tag on youtube quite a lot now so I wanted to join in the fun. I wanted to make it more like a makeup tutorial rather than just a tag since I hadn’t done makeup tutorials in a while!
In the end my camera actually ran out of battery hence why I couldn’t actually film the lips – but I used NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Tokyo with a clear gloss ontop.

The Runway Bling giveaway has finally ended and we have a whopping 1,000 entries!!!
Raine and I managed to draw out two random winners from the entries. It was difficult to pick the winners because we knew how much each and every one of you wanted the amazing case, but please congratulate the two winners.
Both winners decided to choose this case. I told you it was a nice case!!!
I can’t wait til the winners receive their cases and really can’t wait to see what they think of them!!
It’s been such a great experience working with Runway Bling and don’t forget to use the discount code “chaigyaru15″ for 15% off all orders.
I went over to Raine‘s house the other day to host a giveaway with her on her amazing phone cases. She hasn’t launched her website for long but I just know it’s going to be an amazingly successful shop from the quality of her cases.
Before she launched, she custom made a phone case for me which was honestly the nicest case I had ever received. It literally sparkles in the sunlight and you can see no mistakes anywhere!! They are made of 100% authentic swarovski crystal – which means that they actually bling forever, unlike the rhinestones or fake plastic crystal pretend stones.
I highly recommend these cases – and usually I have lots of trouble with the crystals falling off but with this case, I took it to America, Malaysia and it has actually stayed in one piece!! The only downside to it is that it is so strong and tight that I have had slight trouble pulling the case off – but I do think that can be easily fixed with a strong daddy or boyfriend (in my case anyway).
In the giveaway, we are giving away two of these gorgeous cases away to my followers. You can actually custom make your phone cases or just choose the pre-made designs. I’m so so excited to see what the winners will pick because all the designs are so amazing!
Steps to winning is very simple. Bascially there are only two steps.
1. You have to go to Modelchic facebook and like their facebook page
2. You have to choose a design from Runway Bling and comment in the video below which your favourite design is

If you can’t wait for the giveaway to end and would like a new case, you can still head over to Runway Bling and receive a 15% discount if you quoet “chaigyaru15″ at checkout!! That’s a hefty 15% off – which means if you buy a $170 case, you only end up paying $144.50!!!!! Better than any retail sales in Sydney!!!
Anyway, I really hope you guys support Raine because she has put in a lot of effort into starting up her own phone cases business and really investing the time to find the best quality in the cases possible. It really is worth every cent.
Here are some of the cases available including some of my favourites.
It’s been such a long week this week with work and so I really haven’t had the time to edit pictures and blog yet!
However, I did upload a video on youtube – just incase you missed it! It’s a simple valentines makeup!
If you read the comments on the video, you will find that loads of people are claiming that “i’m too skinny now” or that “i’ve lost a lot of weight” – but I honestly do not think so and the scale doesn’t agree with them either!
Maybe.. the botox has finally kicked in, but I’m not sure. Check this post out if you have no idea what I’m talking about.
Anyhoo, I have loads of giveaways coming up on my youtube and blog that I’ve organised and haven’t had the time to post up!! Really hope I can get more posts up this month as I am already breaking my New Years Resolution!!
I also finally got PINTEREST which has my absolute addict lately! Please come follow my boards and I will definitely check yours out too!!! I have loads of cute husky pictures in my Kawaii board!!! *bribes
And also cute tigers…
Okayyyy… Just come follow my boards because #pinterest is soooo fun!!!!!!! Much more fun than instagram and Lookbook!!!
I’m in the middle of studying for my exam now and procrastinating whilst watching 萬凰之王. How can some women be so evil? I really can’t understand.If anyone else watches this and wants to comment, please do not do not give me any spoilers! I’m only on episode 9!!!!!!
I apologise not vlogging and blogging much lately, but I really have a lot going on in life at the moment!!! I’m trying to prepare for my exam (which is on 14th December – this Wednesday) and also trying to prepare for my trips to Malaysia (from 15th December to 19th December) for #NAPBAS Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards and my U.S Trip I’ve been so so excited about!
I’ll leave you with my November Beauty Favourites video, which once again, I uploaded quite a few days ago already. wtf. (x___x)
And I’ll also leave you with something very interesting I found last week!
Those who curl up in the foetus position are described as tough on the outside but sensitive at heart. They may be shy when they first meet somebody, but soon relax. This is the most common sleeping position, adopted by 41% of the 1,000 people who took part in the survey. More than twice as many women as men tend to adopt this position.
★ ☆ ✰
Lying on your side with both arms down by your side. These sleepers are easy going, social people who like being part of the in-crowd, and who are trusting of strangers. However, they may be gullible.
★ ☆ ✰
People who sleep on their side with both arms out in front are said to have an open nature, but can be suspicious, cynical. They are slow to make up their minds, but once they have taken a decision, they are unlikely ever to change it.
★ ☆ ✰
Lying on your back with both arms pinned to your sides. People who sleep in this position are generally quiet and reserved. They don’t like a fuss, but set themselves and others high standards.
★ ☆ ✰
Lying on your front with your hands around the pillow, and your head turned to one side. Often gregarious and brash people, but can be nervy and thin-skinned underneath, and don’t like criticism, or extreme situations.
★ ☆ ✰
Lying on your back with both arms up around the pillow. These sleepers make good friends because they are always ready to listen to others, and offer help when needed. They generally don’t like to be the centre of attention.
★ ☆ ✰
Which sleeping position do you fall in?
I think I’m the Foetus.
It is said that I am tough on the outside and sensitive on the inside. I think it’s true. In fact, I think most women are like this!!!
Mr.CG is definitely the Starfish. He likes to sleep with his back facing up and arms around the pillow. I think his description is right as well. He is very kind at heart and always helping others when needed (only good friends though I guess!). He also does not like to be the centre of attention – and always gives all the attention to me!!
Do you think what the description says about you is true?
I probably would have never imagined doing something so crazy before but I took the plunge and went for a consultation with Dr. Rahbar at the Laser Lounge and realised what an easy procedure it is.
Now… let’s see… botox. That’s such a mis-used word.. such that when you say that to anyone, they automatically assume you are in your 40s and require some sort of lifting of your face. Let me explain. Find a comfortable seat and a comfortable position.. because this may take a while.
Ok, “Botox” is a neurotoxic protein – it actually stands for botulinum toxin. Botox is only a “brand” of this neurotoxic protein.. so essentially, you can replace “botox” for other similar injectibles. This is something to beware of when you do purchase “Anti-Wrinkle injections” from group deal websites such as Spreets and Scoopon. Do your research!
Although Botox is commonly used as an “Anti-Wrinkle” agent, it can also be used for Non-Cosmetic procedures.. such as excessive sweating and teeth grinding!
The procedure I took is to reduce the size of my massetter (my jaw muscles). Your jaw muscles can be larger from genetics, excessive chewing or even grinding your teeth!! I have a really bad habit of grinding my teeth when I sleep and when I’m stressed, so I think this was one of the main issues for me.
Botox is injected into the “enlarged” massetter muscle to weaken it so that it can gradually become smaller over several months. This procedure can be a good alternative to plastic surgery but not everyone is a good candidate. The reason I say this is because if you naturally have a square jaw – rather than enlarged jaw muscles, the only solution would be to reduce the size of your bone, not your muscle (obviously).
The best way to see if you are a good candidate or not is if you actually go for a consultation to ask your Doctor, or clench your teeth together to feel your jaw muscles.
In terms of units, typically for this type of procedure, I started off with the smallest amount – I think Dr.Rahbar mentioned that its 25ml on each side – which was equivalent to 5 injectibles on each jaw. If you have any further questions on units/prices, you can email Dr.Rahbar here. The more units you have, the more costly the procedure is. I believe some doctors charge you by units, whereas some others will charge you based on what you want to do because if you “purchase” more units, they are give you a “bulk” price.
What I did & Why? At the initial consultation, I mentioned to Dr.Rahbar that all I wanted was to reduce the size of my face. He analysed my face shape and features and told me that to reduce the square appearance he would recommend some botox on my jaw muscles and my chin. If you look back up and see my “Before” picture, you will see that my jaw muscles were very apparent and my chin looked as if it had a “lump” (what Dr.Rahbar called a “fat pad”). He basically said that if I were to insert a miminal dosage on the jaw muscles and chin, I could create more of a “V” face to my face. I agreed.
Obviously, the decision wasn’t rushed. It took me about 2 months before I actually had the procedure done.
How much is it? Although this procedure was kindly sponsored by The Laser Lounge, the procedure itself would typically cost AU$650 for the Jaw Botox and AU$90 for the Chin Botox.
How long do results last? Dependent on every individual and the areas being treated, results typically last for 6-12 months.
Did it hurt? I would say it really depends on your pain tolerant level. I can tolerate injection pain and I occasionally donate blood with Australian Red Cross.. so.. it didn’t hurt much for me. Areas that were more sensitive for me were the chin area, and areas closer to my cheekbone. You can see the whole procedure in the video to see where I really felt the pain the most.

After the treatment. No redness or swelling at all!!!
As you can see, the treatment was really a “lunch break” treatment. There was absolutely no swelling nor redness. I couldn’t drink alcohol or lie down for 4 hours after the treatment.. and that was all!
The treatment literally took about 5 mins, and you can see from the video below. It is freaking amazing!!!
Thank god I found such an amazing cosmetic physcian.. otherwise I would have never wanted to get this treatment done. I will be reporting back within the next few weeks with results, but for now, I can already see results!!!! See my more recent pictures for reference!!!
Results are supposed to be gradually.. and it should be visible in about 6 weeks time. I’m at 4 weeks right now.. so I’m excited to see what will happen within the next 2 weeks.
I have a new video!! This video actually took me a week to edit because I’ve been having issues with my laggy iMac at home :( I am officially giving up on it and have gone out to buy myself a spanking new 27″ iMac with the best graphics card! ^O^~
I edited this video at work – hence why the first time I uploaded the video, it was horrible quality (didn’t know the settings because all my settings were default at home) and why this second time.. I think the timing is off. Boohoooo.
August + September Hits & Misses
Apart from filming ofcourse, I’ve also been trying to photoshop to get some blog posts up!! But… for some odd reason, my whole computer is just lagging and… it just doesn’t seem like it wants to work… so I just sit around and play with Yuki!
I can’t wait til she starts looking like this… (that’s my new wallpaper now)
