Money saving tips for Christmas Shopping :)

Hi Guys,

Christmas is just around the corner so I thought I would help you out with some money saving tips as we approach the most expensive time of the year.

 1.      Always compare prices – don’t just buy from the first store, 9/10 other stores will be happy to price match if you can show other stores have a better price

2.      Use vouchers discount codes where possible – this time of the year almost all shops have discounts going so keen an eye out and cash in on these special buys

3.      Ask others to chip in for presents – that way the person you are buying for gets a bigger and better present but also you may able to get some savings

4.      Secret Santa – Instead of the whole family buying gifts for each person organise a Secret Santa

5.      Stick to your list – when going to the shops at Christmas time you tend to go a bit crazy so I suggest go with your list of presents you need and stick to it (this will be a saviour to your bank account)

These are my top tips, comment below with your best budget tips for Christmas :)

Clubbing proof makeup tips

Over the weekend I went put clubbing for my birthday and wanted to share my top 3 tips for clubbing proof makeup

1. Prime that face
I just find this helps your makeup to stick on and last the whole night so don’t miss this step.

2. Powder up
I find applying two layers of powder really sets my foundation. Tip though, after that don’t powder again. You don’t want to end up cakey and if you go and reapply in the bathroom this is bound to happen.

3. Falsie it up
There’s not a better time than going out for you to doll up and apply some falsies. :)

Scincare Favourites: Top 5 (quick review)

Hi Lovelies,

These are my top 5 skincare pics.

Image

Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub: I love cleansers where you can feel it really scrub your face. This is perfect for that. It exfoliates and is deep cleansing.

Biore Deap Cleansing Pore Strips: Like most people, the worst black heads can be found on my nose. So I like to use these every now and then to clean my pores. They work a treat!

Innoxa Stretch Marks: I, like most of you probably, have stretch marks. I hate them, but they are a fact of life. This however doesn’t mean I won’t do anything in my power to hide/minimise the scar they leave. So this is what I use :)

Cetaphil Moisturiser: This is that awesome cheap moisturiser that I just love to chuck anywhere when I feel a bit dry, whether it be my legs or my elbows (also my face). This is probably the cheapest/well rounded moisturiser on the market!

Olay Moisturiser (normal skin): Last but not least, my favourite moisturiser. This just works and that’s all I can say! I’ve never had a moisturiser that didn’t make me feel oily and gross before this product and now I have this I don’t think I will ever change!

Also, another beauty must for me is doing face masks. Check out this awesome pic of me and my sis doing one. I grab these off ebay :)

NARS Laguna Bronzer Review

As usual, I’m late to the party (my bad). It was my birthday the other day and as usual I wanted to pick up some makeup. This time however, I splashed out and went for a high end product (after all it was my birthday!), so I got NARS Laguna Bronzer. Shock horror, it’s my first NARS product ever, so I am ecstatic over this purchase!!

Can I just say ‘WOW’, I don’t think any other word could describe it better. This bronzer is just phenomenal, just what I was looking for. It’s the perfect colour for my skin, the formula is amazing and it doesn’t have that tacky/overdone sparkly shine most bronzers do. Its matte with minimal shine and it’s just ‘WOW’! It looks natural on my skin and I can wear as much or as little as I want (toally buildable). I’m not going to lie. It is exy ($55 AUD), but contrary to that, it’s just worth it! It suits my pale skin where most bronzers just look overdone and to be blunt, ORANGE!

This is definitely a purchase that I will never look back and regret buying it. It’s a sizeable bronzer too so I know it will last forever! Now packaging, no words can describe it, it’s just practical and makes perfect sense. Its classy, its black, its NARS (so basically you can’t go wrong).

If I was you ladies and haven’t picked this bad boy up already, save your pennies and do it, I can tell this is going to be my new holy grail makeup product :) 10/10
