Intro Round 2

Sooo…

Blogging is something I used to do on the reg and be uber passionate about. Recently I’ve had a few people ask me why I stopped and the reason of “life just got busy” didn’t sit particularly well with me as a good enough reason to stop something which I once loved doing. So here I am – round two.

But then it struck me. What do I want to write about now or where would I even start again so I read my first attempt at an intro post. It was simple.

So thats what this will be. Simple. Short. Sweet.

Until next time..

March Favourites Vol#2

Hi Guys,

So today I am bringing you my March Favourites (I know I’m late, sowwwwweeee!) As per my new method of doing this I created last month I am going to show you my favourites in this format:

1 favourite Scent

2 favourite Lifestyle items

3 favourite Bloggers

4 favourite YouTuber’s

5 favourite Beauty Products

 

So for my favourite scent this month I am not choosing what I would classify as a traditional scent. Instead, I am choosing my body wash scrub atm as its basically my new scent. I smell like it all the time cause the scent stays with me during the day! I picked this one up for $4 and I love it, will definitely be repurchasing.

My two favourite lifestyle products for this month is set of Alex draws from Ikea and this little mirror mosaic bowl I bought at a market about a year ago. The set of Alex drawers from Ikea has been a godsent for me as it fits all my beauty items so I know where to find something when I am looking for it! Before it was a mad scramble in my room to find what I was looking for. My little mirror mosaic thing is jus so cute so I had to include it, its also where all the samples I am wanting to try are kept.

My top three bloggers for the month are Rebekah, Tahanna and Jade who is actually an instagram blogger which is awesome. Make sure you click on all their blogs and follow them cause they are amazing and awesome friends I have made through my IG account.

My favourite YouTuber’s of the month are Giovanna Belling, Casper Lee, Marcus Butler and Tanya Burr. This month was a mixture of beauty and random YouTube accounts but I love all of these guys and am a subscriber so may sure you check them out too :).

And now my favourite beauty picks for the month! I have picked MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick, Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation in 330, Essence’s Studio Nails XXL Nail Thickener, Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Mascara and Real Techniques Powder Brush.

I got MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick when I was in the US and it has since become by go-to clubbing lipstick – bright AND matte (perfection!), I picked up Maybelline’s Fit Me Foundation in 330 at the Priceline 40% off sale and I have been using this baby for cream contouring – lovvvvvvve it.  Essence’s Studio Nails XXL Nail Thickener has helped repair the poor condition of my nails due to lots of nail painting as of recent – I also use it as a base cost. I got given the Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Mascara and never really thought much of it when I first tried it but started using it recently when another mascara ran out and now I adore it. Its volumizes my lashes like crazy and make them look super long. Lastly the Real Techniques Powder Brush is now not only a favourite but a staple, this is the perfect all over face brush and I can’t say enough nice things about it!

Thats all for this month.

Until next time..

MOTD/FOTD Pink and white smokey eye look

Hi Guys,

So its Monday morning so I thought I would share with you my MOTD/FOTD. I don’t usually wear makeup to work but I have started to wear makeup more recently cause I have so much makeup I need to use up before! So today I created a white/silver and pink smokey eye look with a corally/pink lip.

I used the Chi Chi nudes palette and the Napoleon Jet Set Palette for the eye shadow adding in eyeliner and mascara to complete the eyes. For the face I used my favourite BB cream by Lioele (link directs you to my review), MAC’s prolongwear concealer in NW20 and Australis fresh and flawless powder. To contour I used NARS Laguna (link directs you to my review) and for the lips I used a combination of Maybelline’s colour whisper sensation in Oh La Lilac and Sportsgirl’s lipstick in Fruit Tingle
