Max Brenner and Priceline Purchases

Clockwise from top left: Deck chairs at South Bank; Chocolate Dip; Belgian Waffle with a side of vanilla ice cream; Pink Granitas in Alice cups.

I loved the deck chairs! They're such a good idea. We sat there for a good 30mins and it was comfortable and not too crowded.
I didn't enjoy the waffle much, I've definitely had nicer waffles and nicer ice cream. But the granita drinks were nice, as always. The Pink Granita is made with passionfruit and strawberry, and it's really good. :)



This was from the last time we were at Max Brenner a few weeks ago: we had the Fondue for Two and compared to the one we had at San Churro last time, this was so much nicer. I liked that there were two types of chocolate and the sides were more practical for fondue. San Churro gave pretzels and caramel popcorn, which are so messy to dip because you can't pick them up with the forks. 
The drink in the weird teapot is a white chocolate chai drink and it doesn't pour out from the spout- I was so surprised when my friend picked it up and sat it on top of her glass. When you press down the drink pours out of the bottom of the teapot. :D




I went to the city to buy the Illamasqua Blush Duo but when I swatched it I wasn't as enthused as I thought I was, so I didn't buy it. 
Pick-me-up shopping at Priceline, and I managed to stick to buying basic 'necessities' instead of more blush or eyeshadow. :) Ardell Brow Sculpting Gel and Dove Foaming Make Up Remover. I wanted the Rimmel Nude eyeliner as well but they didn't have any left. I wanted a brow gel, and had the Essence one in hand but when I was mooching around the brush section, which is next to the lashes section, I saw Ardell's brow gel and I looked up reviews on the spot (have you ever done that? :p) and wound up getting the Ardell one. 

All in all, a good day. :) Holidays are going to be fun.

    1. Aww... we've had Max Brenner for ages but San Churro only arrived this year. I was so excited about San Churro because I'd had it in Sydney once before, but it was a little underwhelming. Hehe holidays!!! Congrats on finishing! :)

  3. What a nice bunch of photos! I'm in love with the waffles, I need some! I'm intrigued by the make up remover, I've been tempted to try other types than my typical scrub and oil remover but I think it's about time to try a different formula!

    1. I've used the makeup remover a couple of times so far and I really like it! It's different to the bi-phase formula that I'm used to- it starts as a liquid but turns into a foam when dispensed and the foam dissipates. :)

  4. Yum Max Brenners! I agree, their waffles and icecream isn't anything amazing but that pink granita looks yummy :) Looking forward to see what you think of the Ardell brow gel!

  5. I always look up reviews on the spot with my phone :p Haha, happens all the time while in Priceline! Haven't been to Max Brenner in ages, but you can't go wrong with some sweet treats :) I use that Dove makeup remover when I really need to get heavy makeup off my face - it's also great for taking off product from arm swatches :p

    1. I've just been using the regular Dove 2 in 1 cleanser, double cleansing to remove face makeup but thought I'd start using this Dove one to take the makeup off first. I remember the first time I looked up reviews on my phone, in Target, and got such strange looks from people! But I'm used to it now so it's all good. :)
