Adelaide Event: Ambra Liqueurs Icy Pops Launch!




Ambra Liqueurs
43 Phillips Street
Thebarton SA


Hi guys! Last week I was lucky enough to attend the Launch of Ambra Liqueurs new Limoncello Icy Pops and Blood Orange liqueur! It was a fabulous evening where we got to sample new drinks and icy pops, enjoy a delicious grazing table and learn a bit about Ambra Liqueurs background and the process of making the iceblocks.







There were two varieties of cocktails made from the new Blood Orange liqueur to enjoy, and both were tangy and delicious. I absolutely love citrus flavours, so anything lemon, lime or orange is right up my alley! I also love a drink that looks the part, and these cocktails sure deliver on the vibrancy front. So orange and so, so pretty. The Ambra Limoncello Icy Pops are a welcome treat now that Summer is upon us, because why should kids have all the fun? Plus they only contain 1.15% alcohol so they won't get you into too much trouble either! I only regret not trialling more than one, haha!









Ambra Liqueurs products are Australian made with fresh ingredients using an authentic Italian family recipe which has been handed down through generations, so you know everything is made with love!










Out of interest, I browsed their online store and was surprised to see so many yummy looking liqueurs on offer including Ambra Almond, Cappuccino and Tangelo. Just quietly, I've got my eye on the Chocolate Orange and Limoncello Cream flavours. Yum! You can also buy small and large gift boxes, perfect with Christmas approaching!




Available for purchase online, in the Spritz Bar and at selected venues. You can contact Ambra Liqueurs for more information on (08) 8354 0611.

The Ambra Liqueurs Cellar Door is open Wednesday - Friday 9am-5pm and the Spritz Bar is open Fridays 5pm 'til late and the first Saturday of the month 1pm-5pm.

November Beauty Empties!





Hi guys! It's time for another beauty empties post. I think I may have absentmindedly thrown out a few things (oops!) so this probably isn't everything. Also, I definitely need a good house clean up, because these were located all over the place. I envy those of you who are super organised!




Batiste Dry Shampoo (Rose Gold)
I really liked the fragrance of this one and would definitely get it again. The floral packaging design is super pretty too and I do like looking at cute products that look good in the bathroom!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Plus (Heavenly Volume)
I'm definitely going to keep buying this one as it's specifically formulated to impart extra volume, which my hair needs. Not as pretty to look at, but meets the needs of my hair type better than the Rose Gold version.

3 x Maybelline Masterliners
Hands down my favourite everyday eyeliner, of course I will continue to buy them, and have already done so (I like having at least two back-ups in the cupboard). I'm not sure that I used all three of these last month, but that's how many I found! You can usually get them half price at Chemist Warehouse or stock up when Priceline are having a makeup sale.

L'Oreal Elvive Fibralogy Thickening Shampoo
I've already bought my next bottle, as I love this stuff. I really hope it's not discontinued as I believe the Fibralogy Thickening Serum has been. Give a girl a break, L'Oreal!

Hair Recipe Strawberry & Mint Cleanse Shampoo
I love using this as a first cleanse to get rid of any build up of product, before going in with the above-mentioned Fibralogy thickening shampoo. I tried some different deep clean type clarifying shampoos but nothing really worked until I tried this one. Again, I get it when Priceline is having a half price haircare sale!

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Solution
I won a trio of mini Bioderma micellar waters and aren't they just the cutest thing ever? These are the best micellar waters I've tried and the only negative is that the bottle isn't bigger!

Oh Deer Sugar Use Your Melon Shower Moose
This watermelon and lime shower mousse was amazing! I love these fragrances and the Oh Deer Sugar mooses (spelled that way on purpose!) are definitely Holy Grail products for me. I love the whipped texture and they're so much fun to use. I'm currently using a Banana and Vanilla Milkshake one from the same line. You can read my mini-review of the Oh Deer Sugar Rose & Passionfruit Shower Moose here.

Lime Crime Glitter Helper
I'm throwing this out because unfortunately it has gone off. I didn't get that much use out of it either! Oh well.

Revlon Photoready Colour Correcting Pen
I love love love this product and have already replaced it during the recent Priceline cosmetics sale. It's perfect for hiding my dark circles and the formula smooths on effortlessly and blends like a dream.

Adelaide Event: Lucky Dumpling Market!



Hi guys! Last weekend we finally visited the Lucky Dumpling Market, which is part of the Oz Asia Festival. It actually ran from October 25 to November 11 and we went on the very last day (I was not missing out!). This event is set along the River Torrens in the city, right next to the Adelaide Convention Centre. I'd never been before, so I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful it looked, especially with all the colourful lanterns! I'd been stalking this event on Instagram, working out what dishes I wanted to try and just generally fan-girling over the whole thing. This was a bit of a hard sell to convince my son he'd have fun, as he's fussy af, and doesn't eat any Asian food. We brought some food along for him, but needn't have, as they had hot chips and ice cream, so he was set. The weather was damn hot and the flies were out, but we managed to find some (Real Slim) Shady spots to sit, and look out over the river.








There was music, workshops and demonstrations to experience. The day we went it was a dance extravaganza, with many different cultural dances taking place on the stage. The range of food was pretty good too! You could choose from dumplings (of course!), noodles, BBQ, stir fries, curries and ice cream, among many more gourmet delights. I thought the food was yummy and really enjoyed it. The beer on the other hand... guys, I'm having the worst luck with beer lately. After the apple pomegranate beer fiasco at CheeseFest, I went for an original Coopers Pale Ale at this event, only to be handed a ridiculously cloudy bottom of the barrel plastic cup that I really should have exchanged for something resembling beer, not cloudy apple juice. Luckily it still tasted good. But my kingdom for a good beer at this point, you know?






I had to support The Filipino Project since they've been watching all the Stories on my Foodie Instagram account @imhungrymax and besides, I could not pass up the Ube (purple yam) soft serve ice cream. Just look at it!
