I bought ankle cuffs, cross bracelet, 3-pack of rings, and a rose gold cuff. Total was about 30AUD. I had used a discount of about 8AUD. I know I bought a pair of ankle cuffs this year from eBay and those were actually painful and not wearable at all! I haven't worn these out properly yet but from a brief stroll down my hallway, these don't actually dig into your ankles because they open up when you walk.

The white pair has this really lovely lace overlay and a brown heel making them perfect for warmer weather, but there are marks on them! There's a blue one and an orange one. They are not even pen marks or anything. They're actually bits of string from underneath, that have become visible for some reason. Not sure if you can even remove them as the strings are not really hanging out. Such a silly and unnecessary flaw, why not use white string? Luckily from far away they are not so noticeable. I wore these in my last outfit post.

I was really pleased with the quality of the spiked pair though! I expected a few spikes to fall off after a while, but they all seem really sturdily attached. They are also blunt enough to not hurt yourself if you're putting them on carelessly or in a rush, but obviously you wouldn't chuck them at someone's face lol. As for comfort, they're a lot more comfortable than the white pair.
total paid incl shipping = $67.30
As usual, shipping price was pretty much the same as the items price lol.
Forever New "Heart Breaker" Jewellery roll $26?
(I used an online discount. it's even cheaper now anyway! link here for $20)
I have to introduce this to you as an amazing Christmas gift idea! It looks like a wallet, but it's actually a jewellery roll. When you open it up there are various slots and pockets to put our countless accessories in it such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, hair pins and basically all our girly bits and bobs.
Instead of getting all your jewellery tangled up with each other, you have all these separate compartments to organise your stuff. When you go travelling, this jewellery roll is perfect to carry around.
It was in my one of my favourite colours and had these adorable metallic heart cut-out corners- as if I could NOT buy it. I liked it so much I couldn't just take photos, I need to show you how it works and explain how amazingly practical it is! :D
There are two big pockets with smaller pockets inside. The two big pockets are removable, if you only need one and/or the wallet cannot close.
In the bottom pocket, there are 3 compartments. The top one is long and not very deep, so it's perfect for small, thin bracelets like this one from FashionValet (here). The middle one is a bit deeper so better for thick, wrap bracelets (Disney Couture). The bottom one is the deepest and perfect for those hard bangles that can't be folded (arrow and claw bracelet both from taobao.com).
In the top pocket, there is a purple strip that is removable. It has holes punched into it and I realised it was perfect for earrings! It's better to use relatively flat stud earrings and place them more towards the centre of the strip, to help the wallet close better. (bow ones from zipia.net, pink ones from Portmans).
Below that, there are two small zip pockets side by side. I thought these were the perfect sized compartments for rings! (ASOS gold rings). The bottom compartment is the biggest so I just put in a chunky necklace.
(for the purple strip I also added bobby pins!)
This is just how I'd fully utilise the jewellery roll. However you can pretty much use the compartments however you like, depending on what jewellery you have! You can even use it as a makeup bag. The possibilities are endless. So many nifty little compartments with a such a gorgeous lilac snakeskin cover! I always find myself drooling over Forever New's bags and wallets, it's terrible! *wipes slobber from face*
Ulta3 Matte Lipstick in Plum Velvet $3.95
Unfortunately I didn't have a plum-coloured lipliner so I just used a bright red one! Doesn't really match I know.
(I forgot to take a decent pic of the product but here is a link to it with pictures and review from Beauty Haven)
Velour Lashes in "Lash in the city" $35
These are so dramatic on me! I bought "Strike a Pose" earlier this year and loved them, they were slightly less dramatic and I don't think I should've gotten anything thicker than that pair. I'm still a huge fan of Velour Lashes though, they're made out of mink so they're ultra comfortable. I have a few pairs of synthetic eyelashes and sometimes the lash bones are too hard and prick my eyes and cause them to water haha.
Since they're really long, I tried to prepare for them by drawing my eyebrows as far as I could above the brow line, in order to give enough space for the long lashes. So please ignore how weird and unnatural my eyebrows look >_<
and this is a sneak peak of other beautiful gifted items, that I can't wait to show you guys in upcoming outfit posts! :)
