RAMBLES; How many nail polishes is too many?

Sorry about my absence! I have been sick (stupid Winter!!) and am a very lazy blogger.

Recently I bought some nail wheels for fun so that I can reference back to the colours I own... and choose which one I want to use when I am being picky.
I started painting the nails on the wheels, taking me around 2 hours, and realised I had a lot of nail polishes.

OVER 80 POLISHES! That's why I am asking this question, how many is too many?

I know there are people with 100's of bottles and some with a very small collection. I was shocked I have that I have so many, surely I don't need 6 different types of Coral polish in different finishes?

Considering I paint my nails once a week I have enough for 2 years worth and I am sure I have had some for over 2 years (I hear that's when you should chuck them... or is it 1??). Yet this doesn't stop me from buying more! I bought 3 new bottles just yesterday!

Maybe it is just the hoarder in me (and many many other girls out there) but I NEED those 4 multi-coloured glitter polishes...  What do you think?

JUNE; favourites.

My first Favourites post! Winter (yuck!) is here in Melbourne, which means the bare essentials for me.

SoapGO Pocket Pal Sanitising Hand Gel: I don't usually care for hand sanitisers! I don't go out of my way to buy or use them really... However I saw this at Priceline for $2 and it smells like raspberries so of course I had to get it!

the Balm Frat Boy Blush: My HG blush. This will most likely appear every month. The colour, a peachy pink, is perfect for my light skin. Pigmentation is excellent and with a light hand gives me the most perfect natural flush of colour across my cheeks. 

Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 103: A lovely pink rose color that looks natural on the lips. I love the formula of these lipsticks, not too drying compared to other matte lipsticks, and for less than $10 it doesn't hurt my bank account.

Maybelline The Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara: I found this doesn't give me the 'cat eye' look so much, but does do a great job at lengthening and seperating the lashes, which is what I look for the most in any mascara.

Trilogy Vital Moisturising Cream: This has saved me so far this winter. I apply this on my face each morning to help my dry skin! It isn't greasy either so it applies well before putting on makeup.

Have you tried any of these products before?

I thought I would start my blog off with my current lust list!


1. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush: I have heard great things about these blushes and they aren't available here of course! My sister is in Canada at the moment, so fingers crossed she gets me this. I've got my eyes on Tipsy, a nice coral colour.

2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Tiny Friendship Bracelet: I don't even want to pair it with a friend, I just think it is so cute! 

3. Keds Shoes: I need a new pair of casual shoes, as all of mine have gotten really dirty from work! Keds are reasonably priced here in Australia and I have heard they are comfortable.

4. YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick: I think everyone wants at least one of these in their collection. The packaging is gorgeous! I'm hoping to pick one up duty free if I go overseas next month!

5. Etude House Real Art Cleansing Oil: I have been meaning to try a cleansing oil and Etude House's one is affordable at less than $20.

If you have tried any of these products let me know your thoughts!

MY NEW HOME; follow me!

For those of you who are visiting from the now defunct Pastel Rainbows, and to all new followers as well... WELCOME! Let me introduce myself.

My name is Emily and I am 20 years old, residing in a cold Melbourne, Australia at this moment in time.

It's been a long 8 months since I have been active in the blogging community, but I haven't stopped stalking away. I found it hard to blog before due to having no job and no functioning computer, but that has changed!

I hope you enjoy the new blog and don't be afraid to talk to me!

You can follow me on bloglovin', and on instagram (emerlies).
