2014 Beauty Favourites

I’m always excited for the end of the year, not only is it a time to reflect on the last 12 months, but also look to the next 12 for inspiration, motivation, and new possibilities. Before we look forward though, lets look back at the year in beauty. I’ve rounded up 5 of my favourite products of the year for your enjoyment, although believe me when I say there could have been many more. I guess we can call these my 2014 beauty favourites.. 2014 Beauty Favourites

Another 25 Make-up (and Beauty) Tips You Should Know!

I posted a list of 25 Make-Up Tips And Hacks You Need To Know a while ago and loved it so much (also I have more than 25 filed away in my brain) that I thought I would share some more with you. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you another 25 Make-up (and Beauty) That You Should Know!

25 makeup tips

1. If you need to look put together but don’t have the time, throw on a little mascara and a swipe of red lippy, are voila!

2. You are what you eat. A good diet generally means better looking skin, so drink that water and get some extra fruit and veg on your plate.

3. My “4 step don’t even need to think about it eye look”:
a. Prime
b. Use your face powder or cheek highlighter (not the liquid kind) all over your lid
c. Use your bronzer in the crease
d. Mascara and go!

Get Summer Ready Skin TODAY

Summer Ready Skin

*queue the “OMG it’s summer already?!”*

Yes Ang, it’s already summer. I’m a pants girl through and through, so the thought of shorter hemlines and my ghost white legs on display for all to see makes me anxious. Is this you too? Never fear, I have a recipe that will get you summer ready skin quicker than an ice cream melting on a hot day. We’re talking soft and silky smooth skin that glows,  and  hydration to boot. Ready, set, GO!

Inspired: Katy Perry, Roar

katy perry inspired

 

I adore Katy Perry and everything she stands for, she is just gorgeous! I’ve been hooked on her song Roar recently, and her make-up is just so on point (as always) so I just had to recreate it. Think barely there minimal make-up with bright and glowing skin, lightly flushed cheeks, and big beautiful eyes. This look is perfect for an every day make-up face for work, uni, or errands, and my go to inspired look for when I need to look much more awake and fresh than I feel. I really hope you enjoy this Katy Perry inspired look!

Make-up Bag: August

April makeup bag

For some reason I’ve always really enjoyed the month of August. It’s my birthday month, it’s back to uni time, but it’s also the end of winter which makes me a little sad to be saying goodbye to the cold weather, but happy to say hello to the possibilities of spring. It also means a new set of products thrown into my make-up bag rotation! For this month I’ve picked products that are relatively new to my collection and that I haven’t had a good chance to play with yet. I also threw in some pink because it’s my favourite colour and why the heck not!

As of late..

Hello hello!

I just wanted to check in and say hi to you my loves. I’ve been feeling like a really bad blogger these last few weeks, I’ve just desperately needed some time away. I’ve been trying to bounce back from incredible lower back pain thanks to a bulging disk, getting slapped in the face with a bad case of the flu, and now the beginning of what is going to be an intense semester at uni, and that’s all the tip of the iceberg. You know, sometimes things just get a bit much and we get a little overwhelmed. I’m learning so say that you know what, it’s okay. It’s okay if I miss a few blog posts, or I get a little quiet around my friends. It’s okay if I don’t want to go out tomorrow, or it’s okay if I eat half a packet of Tim Tams in 1 minute flat (though I wouldn’t recommend it as something to do regularly). It’s okay because I’m human and there’s only so much that I can do, there’s only so much I can be, and there’s only so much pressure and stress I’ll allow myself to be under before I need to say hold on, wait a minute. I’ve been following More Than Adored’s Instagram photo challenge this past month and one of the recent days required a selfie. I saw more than a few naked faced and messy haired blogging beauties with comments along the lines of “I don’t wear make-up all the time” and #BloggersKeepingItReal. It really reminded me that we aren’t perfect all the time, no one in this world is, and really, I’m much happier being imperfectly me than a perfect human every moment of the day. I have no idea what I’m getting at right now other than sometimes, just for a little while, something has got to give until you can sort your sh*t out. I’m going to leave it there for now because it’s 10:30pm on a Sunday night and I’m staring at the extensively long list of things I need to do and just wanting to go to bed.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my little slice of the internet. How are you? I’d really love to know. How is your day? I hope it’s magical, and if it isn’t I hope tomorrow is better for you. For me, I’m working on it x

Best Bath and Shower Products Ever

If you know me, you’ll know I love a good bath or hot shower. They’re how I unwind, clear my mind, and scrub the day away, or wake up in the morning since I’m not an avid coffee drinker. There’s been a set of products I’ve been using lately and adoring that I wanted to share with you because they are simply the best bath and shower products EVER.
