Guide to shopping at Innisfree Online (*≧▽≦)

*PHOTO HEAVY - Click on images for larger quality* 
In today's blog post I will be sharing how to shop on the Innisfree website. The first time I ever started using and purchasing Innisfree products was back in Jul 2015. I have been using their products, especially their skincare for over a year now and I absolutely love it. However, it is not available in-stores here in Australia and I don't get many chances to travel much, now that I'm working full time too, it makes it quite difficult to get my hands on their products. 

My solution to this problem is to purchase their beauty and skincare products through their online store, which is super easy to navigate, reasonable pricing's and free goodies too! Keep reading till the end for my discount code!

When you head to the >website< you will see their homepage, which will look sometime like the above screenshots. I like to check the Offer's tab, to see what special offers or discounts they may be having when I shop. 

To really begin shopping, it is best to login by clicking the "Sign in" button to access your account first and continue shopping as you would. But, if you have not signed up with them yet, you can do so by clicking the "Register" button. 

If it's your first time signing up to Innisfree you will come across this page, where you fill out a few details such as your name, email, password & in the referral CODE & ID section you can enter in the below referral details for more discounts.

Once you have made your account, you can then begin shopping for products you want to buy. I absolutely love their skincare products, especially their sheet mask because their prices are really cheap!

Once you find the product you want, you will find the description and how to use information for the product. Additionally, you can also find other customers reviews and questions regarding about this product too. Once you are happy with what you see, you simply just click "Add to bag".  

A popup will appear once you add an item to your bag, you can either continue shopping or continue to checkout once you have placed all the products you want into your bag. 

Once you click the "Checkout" button you will be redirected to this page, where you review what you want to buy and what free goodies they have to offer during your purchase. Innisfree are super generous as they gave me a discount and free sample codes for all first time users!
✧DISCOUNT CODE - 160830KTR661340

When you have applied the discount code and checked your bag, then it's time to pay! You will need to fill in your shipping/billing details and choose a method of shipping and payment too. They accept a few different methods of payment, but I find either Credit card or Paypal the easiest method for me! 

Once you have made payment, you will receive the following notification's: your order has been accepted, order has been shipped and your order has been delivered.

I hope you guys found this how-to guide on Innisfree simple and do leave a comment below what Innisfree product is you favourite or which product you'd love to try! I'm planning to do an Innisfree giveaway so I would love to know what you guys want!! You can also read some of my innisfree product reviews >HERE<

Samurai Sushi 10th Anniversary Pyrmont o(*´ω`)o

Two weeks ago over the weekend,  I was invited as part of Washoku Lovers to attend Sushi Samurai's 10th Anniversary at Pyrmont, where they had tuna cutting shows arranged for customers to see. 

The cutting show was very interesting as we got to see what parts of the tuna have the most flavour or most fat content. The chef also told us more about the tuna's and how they choose the freshest ones.

Of course near the belly area of the toro is where most of the fat is stored, because blue fin tuna live in deeper water where the water pressure is different and of course, much colder. 

The toro and otoro are more light-pink in colour compared to other cuts of the tuna, and a lot of people find because it is light in colour, it is not as flavourful or tasty as the red flesh. This is in fact wrong, toro and otoro are the most expensive cuts of the tuna and have a very smooth and soft texture, which melts in your mouth. 

Whereas the flesh that is closest to the bones are much deeper in colour and the flavours are much more intense, because they swim a lot. 

If you can see in the photo above, the chef is using a long sword-like knife, because the tuna fish was quite large. However for smaller tuna's the usual filleting knife will suffice. It takes skills and knowledge to know how to cut the tuna right. 

Of course, after watching the tuna cutting show it was time for the main meal of the night. I invited my mum along for a free meal and we ordered quote a few things, because we were super hungry. To start off we got the Samurai Sashimi Salad, which was topped with both Japanese salad dressing and Japanese mayonnaise. Very generous portion and delicious too. 

We also got the Sashimi entree, where a selection of a few different seafood were presented nicely. We had scallops, squid, salmon, tuna, king fish and one scampi. 

We also had to get a few of their sushi from their wide selection, so we ordered the toro, chu-toro and otoro (right) and we also got the Aburi Salmon sushi (left) too. I really enjoyed the Aburi salmon, because salmon is one of my favourite fish to eat. The tuna & toro selection were quite nice too, but I think I definitely have been pampered way too much, so my toro expectations are a quite high. Nevertheless, it was still delicious. 

My mum was craving tempura, so she got her the Seasonal Vegetable Tempura platter, because I like my vegetable tempura~ The tempura had a light crispy batter on the outside, leaving the vegetables juicy and delicious on the inside. 

Miso eggplant is one my favourite ways to eat eggplant, so we decided to order one! The eggplant was perfectly grilled, as the flesh just instantly melts into your mouth and the miso paste was lovely but just a little heavy for my liking, so I had to scrap some away. 

Scampi! Scampi! Scampi! I love scampi's! Juicy, sweet and heavenly! What more do I need to say! 

Of course we didn't leave without dessert, so we got their Chocolate lava cake

As soon as you cut through the cake, the chocolate lava just oozes out and it's not too sweet nor too bitter! It's just perfect! Both my mum and I really enjoyed this cake! We actually ordered it because my mum saw another table had ordered it and it looked pretty good~

1/16-30 Bunn St, Pyrmont, 2009

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend, where I spent mine working at my casual job. I also had two birthday dinners over the weekend, so I'm quite tired and cannot wait to pop back into bed early tonight! Anyway, this week I'm planning to post 2 x videos on Wednesday because I missed last week as I just had too much scheduled on then.

The Thirsty Wolf // Spicy Wing Roulette (∩❛ڡ❛∩)

Last week I was invited to pop by The Thirsty Wolf to try out their new Spicy Wing Roulette.

127 King St, Newtown, NSW 2042
Opening Hours: Tues-Sat: 6pm - 12am | Sun: 6pm - 10pm
The Thirsty Wolf Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato
The Thirsty Wolf is a small bar located on the bustling King Street and they offer a range of share plates, burgers and pasta's. Plus they also have both unique and classic cocktails too.

Their bar is very spacious, with an outside garden, perfect to hang around in the upcoming warm weather, their ground level and of course their second floor with some pretty cool painting hanging around which are also for sale! 

Since we were getting a roulette dish, I decided to bring the boyfriend along to see who got lucky. We started the evening with some drinks first. 

The boyfriend ordered the Dragon's Breath cocktail which is chilli infused vodka (Stolichnaya), chartreuse, lemon, egg white and bitters. It was garnished off with a whole fresh chilli. You could really taste the heat of the chilli from this drink! 

I felt like something more refreshing so I ordered the Violet B cocktail which consists of Bulldog Gin, Chambord, lemon, blueberries and cucumber. I loved how light and refreshing this cocktail was, especially when we were about to go for the spicy wing roulette dish! 

First off, we had to try the Spicy Wing Roulette first. There were 6 chicken wings, 5 are marinated in sriracha sauce and 1 in carolina reaper xxx diablo sauce. That one wing just sounds so epic! The wings were well marinated and were very tasty indeed, as it was not too spicy (sriracha wings) and it came with some garlic sauce on the side. Now you're probably guess, who got the Diablo sauce marinated wing right.... was the boyfriend who got it! You'll start off by noticing that it tastes different, then it just slowly hits you on how spicy it actually is! Plus, the boyfriend ordered a chilli infused cocktail so...yeah the struggle was real for him! *UPDATE (12/10/2016) I have placed a video below where you can see how people from Buzzfeed react to the same pepper used in these chicken wings!

We also got The Wolf burger to share. It comes in a milk bun with 200g beef patty, onion rings, cheese, pickles, mustard, tomato, lettuce and BBQ sauce. Both my boyfriend and I really liked the onion ring in the burger, but we did think there was something missing, but couldn't figure out what it was missing...

Overall, we had a pretty good night with some solid drinks and food! I would totally recommend coming here for the wing roulette if you're looking for something fun and related to food. 

Before I left, I had to take a quick picture with the team behind The Thirsty Wolf and thank them for their amazing hospitality that night! I was also wearing all black that day, so it actually looks as if I'm part of the crew! Hahaa~


Only 21 days until Halloween guys! I personally quite like the idea of dressing up in creepy or scary or just even pure weird costumes! However, here in Australia, Halloween isn't a huge thing! Hopefully one day I can go to Japan or America during the Halloween season to get the full experience. Anyway, I will be getting my blog back on track with more post coming your way!
