Red Kisses for Christmas

Wednesday, 10 December 2014

As soon as December hits I am all about Christmas. I love this time of year so much. Everything from Christmas trees, Michael Bublé albums and food, oh the glorious food. I always wear red lips around this time. So if you are a complete Christmas lover like I am or just want to try a new red lip, here are my top five red shades.

Spring Favourites

Wednesday, 3 December 2014

This past season has felt like the quickest and the busiest! I have finished uni and been working full-time. Because I have been working I have needed reliable and long-lasting products. This is what I have been loving this month.

NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Set

Monday, 24 November 2014

Oh baby! This set of lip pencils from NARS is quite possibly the best thing I have ever bought. Now I know that is a huge statement, but seriously I love these lip pencils.They are simply heaven in a beautifully packaged box.

Dry Skin Remedies

Monday, 17 November 2014

Whenever the weather changes my skin seems to have a mini freak out. This freak out usually involves my skin becoming really dry, especially in certain patches on my face. Honestly, I just find this really annoying and I want to fix my skin as quickly and with as little effort as possible. I don't always have a lot of time to fix problems with my skin and so I have managed to find a few products that help my skin quickly. Dry skin while uncomfortable can also make things like applying makeup difficult. So I wanted to share with you the products that give me the best results. 

My Top Five Popular Penguins

Monday, 10 November 2014

I am a huge fan of the Popular Penguin books. At five dollars a pop these books are affordable and because they are paperback it makes them really easy to carry around. Whenever I need a new book I usually look in the Penguin Penguins section first. Scattered through my bookshelf are numerous little orange paperbacks so I thought I would share my top five with you.

My Favourite Things Tag | 200 Followers

Monday, 3 November 2014

I was tagged by Olivia from Just Add Sparkle to do the My Favourite Things tag. I thought that this would be a perfect way to celebrate reaching 200 followers. The tag involves listing three of your favourite things under each category given. I hope this gives you a bit more insight into who I am and I would like to tag all of you lovely people reading this. If you do the tag let me know in the comment section below and I will check it out. 

Haul and First Impressions

Monday, 27 October 2014

This past week or two I have purchased a few products that I have been wanting to try for a while now. I have tried all these products for just over a week now and so I wanted to share my thoughts on them with you. And I mean who doesn't love reading about a good little haul, I know I do.

Rejuvenating Routine

Monday, 20 October 2014

Being busy can be great. However, it can also mean that you don't give yourself time to look after yourself. I am currently at the end of my uni year, which is amazing but also stressful. I have final assignments due and exams around the corner. So I thought I would share with you how I pamper and take care of myself when I take a little time out.

The Beauty Of List Making

Monday, 13 October 2014

The power of a list is something that should not be underestimated. As a lover of lists I would go as far as to say that it is a way of life. 

2014 Listen Out Festival

Monday, 6 October 2014

Listen Out Festival is a one day music festival held in four of the major cities in Australia, and this year I went to the Melbourne festival with 15 of my friends. It was such an amazing day and so I wanted to share a little bit with you guys. 

Empties Review

Monday, 29 September 2014

It is time for another empties review! As I said last time I love reading these as you know the products have been well tested. This round I have a few favourites and a few things that just didn't work for me. I hope enjoy reading my review and that I enable a couple of purchases but also a couple of warnings to save your wallet.

Mini Mani Monday

Monday, 22 September 2014

One of my favourite things to do is paint my nails on a Monday ( I live a crazy life I know). I like to paint them a new colour every week, it is one of my little rituals. Even when life gets super busy I always like to set aside a little time to do my nails.  So I thought this week I would use my favourite polish and share it with you!

Breakfast Berry Smoothie Bowl

Tuesday, 16 September 2014

I am a huge foodie and breakfast is a must for me. I love to start my day with something yummy and filling.  I follow a few different food Instagram's and I have always been a fan of the beautiful food created by Never Quite Full. This week I was lucky enough to create this smoothie bowl with her! This recipe is one of my favourites because it is incredibly easy to make, it's healthy and it also looks great.

Winter Favourites

Friday, 5 September 2014

All winter I have been loving these products! This past season I have come across some amazing  beauty and skincare products that I have absolutely fallen in love with. These are my winter favourites.

What's in My Bag

Tuesday, 26 August 2014

I love reading and watching the 'what's in my bag' tag!
I am such a snoop and totally weird but  I find it interesting seeing what people carry around with them on a daily basis. I feel like a persons bag and what they carry around with them tells you a lot about their character.

My Top Tips For A Fresh Start

Sunday, 17 August 2014

Recently I have felt slightly overwhelmed. Over my uni break I had an amazing internship, it was in a high paced work environment and I loved it. I was working full time and put all my energy into it. 

However, this meant that by the time it was time to go back to uni I was exhausted. 
Overwhelmed I started to avoid any type of responsibility and became the queen of procrastination. I also wasn't really looking after myself, I had stopped exercising, eating well and socialising as much. 

I decided I had to make a change, to pull myself out of my rut. I am all about small changes leading to big ones. These are my top six suggestions for how to change your situation and give yourself a fresh start.

Disappointing Products

Sunday, 10 August 2014

I love reading posts about products before I buy them. I like to see how people have found the products and a glowing review will often send me running to buy it. However, I think it is just as important to read and communicate about products that haven't worked so well or that have in some way been disappointing. These are my impressions of three products that I was disappointed with.

Holiday Reads

Sunday, 29 June 2014

I love to read and I enjoy most genres. However, I am a sucker for an easy read. The kind of novel that you can completely immerse yourself in and get lost in for hours. There is nothing better than a good page turner to keep you entertained on break. These are my top four holiday reads. 

Maybelline Must Haves

Saturday, 21 June 2014

Maybelline is a great brand as it is affordable and they have some great products! Considering how reasonably priced these products are I think they're definitely worth a try. I love the packaging of Maybelline products and they are usually very user friendly. Here are my top three Maybelline products to date.

'My Lips But Better' Lipstick

Monday, 9 June 2014

I love a good 'my lips but better' lipstick. 

Something a little different: One Million Lovely Letters

Friday, 6 June 2014

This post is very different from what I usually write about, however I believe it is a story too important to go unacknowledged. 

Empties Review

Monday, 2 June 2014

I love reading empties reviews as you know the product has been well tested. 
These are four of my recent products that I have finished.
Some I have loved and repurchased, others I was disappointed with and they will not be making a reappearance in my shopping bag. 

Saturday Happenings

Sunday, 1 June 2014

I think exploring the city you live in is highly underrated. I love taking days off to explore Melbourne, and today I took a little trip around the city.

The Perfect Turtleneck Jumper

Wednesday, 14 May 2014

This season the turtleneck has made a serious comeback, and I couldn't be more excited about a revived fashion trend.
So I went on a hunt for the perfect turtleneck sweater. The desktop of my computer is covered in inspiration photos of turtleneck jumpers. I'm obsessed.

The Rimmel Roundup

Saturday, 26 April 2014

Rimmel London is such an iconic brand. On the shelves of most chemists are Rimmel products in all their beautiful and affordable glory. Over the years I have purchased so many of these products off the shelves and loved using them in my every day makeup routine. 
Here are my top four favourite Rimmel products to date.
