TOO FACED | MECCA MAXIMA $47
Who knew infusing cocoa powder in a makeup line, would be so deliciously innovative! This is my current favourite of bronzer, shimmer-free which makes it perfect for everyday wear and the gold tin casing is just a beauty to hold. I got mine in intense/medium.
Vegan friendly and paraben free ultimately places this product on my top favourite list and the last photo does not do it any justice, you have to see it for yourself. Be sure to tap the excess product as I do find it highly pigmented. Though, surprisingly for me it lasts for about 5 – 6 hours.
Easily blendable, whilst catching the delightful whiff of chocolate. Adds a little sweetness in my morning routines.

I had initially been introduced to this wonderful treat back at the Sydney Vegan Festival. After a little taste of the dark chocolate, I had proceeded in tasting the others and walked out with 3 types! Dreamy Chai, Deep Dark and lucky last Creamy Mylk.
Australian-made, it is not only organic but is vegan-friendly created straight from ‘bean to bar’ (click here for ingredients). If you are a bit hesitant with how it tastes, I am telling you that it tastes just as good but with that added rawness. Less creamy in my opinion, but the sweetness is on point!
Stumbling upon the stall they had held during the 2015 Smooth Chocolate Festival, has made me appreciate premium chocolates. Zokoko specialises in single-origin dark chocolates, made entirely from scratch “bean to bar”, whilst using vintage but powerful equipment.
Whilst their gorgeous and entrancing packages, had immediately captured my attention, one bite turned into two and so on! I am already planning to go to their cafe in Emu Heights, so I can try their other beautiful creations. The flavour of this bar I bought, was the perfect 65% of dark chocolate, intense and extremely smooth. Perfect with a cup of coffee, red wine or whilst watching your favourite show.
Tabasco Spicy Chocolate
Oh man, this bar… dark chocolate was amazing, but the spice burnt my taste buds! Watch the youtube video below.
When Daiso finally stocked more of these, I said to myself that I really need to get one before it runs out. & girl, does it run out quick! The milk chocolate quickly disappears, because the rectangle is so tiny that you hardly have any time to savour the moment. But that tiny moment is enough for me.
Dars is a beloved chocolate brand in Japan and in their marketing commercials, most times they would hire famous stars to advertise this product. I’ve noticed in Japan, how they love to wrap every thing! Like there’s the hard over, another layer and then mini layers after that. It’s extraordinary actually, because it makes the product look more presentable and gives the consumers an impression that the product is clean.
Yes, this deserves it’s own post.
I should go back and get the location and name of where you can buy these from (update soon). It’s originally $3 each, but the seller said for 4 he can give it to us for $10… why not? My boyfriend was raving about it, I’m not a huge fan of baklavas, but I have never tried a chocolate flavoured one so I had to give it a go.
It wasn’t too bad, like I won’t go crazy about it, but it’s not too sweet, very light and the combination of nuts and chocolate – it can never go wrong! I was supposed to eat 2, but 1 was enough for my sweet tooth.
My current obsession right now! I found this health shop back West, which supplied this good stuff! I think the store is called Healthy Life store? This was about $4, but the one in Blacktown only supplied this little bags where as the store in World Square had the larger bags which I think costs close to $9.
The 70% is perfect for me, because it is not too sweet or bitter. The chocolate coating is vegan-free and is quite thick around the almond. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

I went back to The Strand Arcade located at the corner of Pitt St Mall, Sydney, after my recent discovery of the place. It is honestly an eye-opener especially seeing the bright red christmas tree in the middle of the arcade. It reminded me a lot like places in London, even though I haven’t been.
I went into a store called Bon Bon Fine Chocolate for more Christmas purchases. It is Australian owned that produces fine chocolates, with an incredible range. It’s quite small inside so I had to squeeze my way through, and bought two things:
85% Dark Chocolate 81g $9.70
8 Piece Chocolate box $16 – I forgot what’s inside this brown box, all I know was it was randomly chosen chocolates for the holiday season.
Unfortunately I won’t be getting to taste these fine chocolates because they are Christmas gifts, but I might go back when I have free time to buy myself some goodies!
