Nice. Mmm, food.

          • nicole replied:

    Hi, how do you find the Liese Bubble Hair Colour? Will the colour fade off after a few wash and will it make the hair dry after using it? Thanks.

    • nicole replied:

      I think it’s fine! I don’t really know cause I’ve never dyed my hair before. Nope it doesn’t make your hair dry.

  11. mimi replied:

  12. lio replied:

    Hello I saw from one of your previous pictures that you have a mbmj nylon tote. How dyou find it? Is it comfortable enough to support all of a student’s assets (I.e bookssss)? Plus is it durable? Thanks!

    • nicole replied:

      Yeah I use it as a schoolbag! Hmm, it hasn’t broken or anything so I guess so? I don’t normally like canvas bags but I didn’t wanna carry a leather bag to school since in Australia we bum around on grass patches or the beach all day.

  13. jean replied:

  14. nat replied:

    Hello, can you recommend some opi nail polish colours? I cannot decide -_-“

    • nicole replied:

      Hey! How about The It Color? It’s bright yellow haha. Or try the designer series? OPI doesn’t make many nice colors. They’re very boring.

      • nat replied:

        Thanks for replying. Yea the colours are quite limited. What other brands of nail polish are you using?

        • nicole replied:

          Essie, China Glaze, Orly, and i want some Zoya shades!

    • nicole replied:

      Hey the coverage is good! I’m never returning to powder foundations. It’s $72 just got a new bottle today cause I lost my tan. Nope I don’t, like this one the best.

      • jean replied:
