Huge Skincare Haul!

In regards to discussing skincare on my blog, I either never mention it or post a gigantic haul – today is a gigantic haul kind of day! Due to my birthday happening recently – birthday haul blog post coming soon! – and picking up my quarterly Mecca Beauty Loop Box, I’ve accumulated a bunch of new skincare items! I need to thank one of my best friends in particular because she inspired this entire post with her ridiculously generous birthday gift of enough face masks to last me the foreseeable future. I have been dying to try some out but had no idea where to start, but she definitely came through for me! Here’s everything I’ve collected over the last few weeks, so I hope you enjoy this post and if you do, please give it a “like” so I know!

♡ Valentine’s Day Netflix Guide ♡

Romantic candle lit dinners, walks on the beach, getting roses delivered to your door, will I be experiencing any of that this Valentine’s Day? Heck no! I’ll be watching Netflix – without the chill. If those are also your plans for this Tuesday then don’t fear, as I’ve rounded up some of my favourite TV shows and movies on Australian Netflix that you need to get into. This list covers the obvious, such as those classic romantic comedies, but I’ve also thrown in the Netflix Originals that I live for, some classic Australian comedies I’ve been re-watching lately, plus some new shows I’ve recently gotten into!

♡ Valentine’s Day Brownies ♡

With Valentine’s Day around the corner I saw it as a perfect oppourtunity to bake something again! This recipe is very similar to my previous baking post, Christmas Tree Brownies, but they were a hit so I thought my Valentine’s Day Brownies would spark some inspiration this V Day too! These brownies are incredibly easy to create and make perfect gifts for your special someone or friends for Galentine’s Day. You can even just whip up a batch for yourself and your fam, because why the heck not? The decorating part is also completely up to you as well!

Burgundy Palette Battle

Burgundy toned eyeshadow palettes dominated the 2016 beauty landscape and they don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Since I have quite a handful of them, I thought I’d do a comparison post about them all! Today I’m comparing the Chi Chi Spices palette, the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette and the Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Kyshadow palette. Since I’ve done lengthy reviews on each of these palettes, which you can read by clicking the names, I won’t be breaking down each shade but instead looking at the price of each of these palettes, how accessible they are, what their formula is like, how similar they actually are and deciding which one I love best! I hope you find this comparison post helpful and if you do, please give it a “like” so I know!

January Favourites

It’s the 1st of February and I’m getting in early to kick off another year of Monthly Favourites! January was the lazy recharge period we all desperately needed after a hectic holiday season. I’ve gone back to work recently and I actually feel refreshed and ready for the year ahead, so hopefully that mindset stays around for as long as possible! In January I found some new ride or die beauty favourites, finally sat down and watched/read things I’ve been procrastinating for months, hit another blogging milestone, drove two hours to see a sunflower field and felt way more creative than usual! So, let’s crack on with it and if you enjoy this post please give it a “like” so I know!

Sunflower Fields + Waterfalls

Last Thursday my family and I made the two hour trip to Willowvale to see the stretching sunflower fields! In the afternoon we even did a quick hike through the mountains and came across the most beautiful waterfall! It was a really lovely way to spend Australia Day as everything from the drive to the fields to the waterfall was so picturesque. Seriously, none of these photos have been edited in any way, they’re just straight from my iPhone 6S. I know this post is a bit of a detour from my usual beauty content, but the photo opportunities were just too gorgeous not to post here! If you enjoy this little photo diary of my day or it inspires to you track down the sunflowers next year, please give this post a “like” so I know!  Continue reading “Sunflower Fields + Waterfalls”

Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Palette | Review, Swatches + Dupes

Personally, in the beauty world, 2016 felt like the year of Kylie Cosmetics and burgundy eyeshadow shades – so it was only a matter of time before Miss Jenner released the ever so popular Kylie Burgundy Kyshadow Palette! Today, I’m finally reviewing it. I asked for this for Christmas and was lucky enough to receive it, so over the past few weeks I’ve been trying it out and I’ve finally settled on an opinion! I have never struggled to review a palette as much as I have with this. I went from wanting it desperately, excitedly using it, having my expectations not exactly matched, then completely loving it again. Below I break down everything from the price to the formula, how I feel about each shade, who I’d recommend this palette to and even mention a few dupes! So, let’s crack on and if you enjoy this review or find it helpful, please give this post a “like” so I know!

Lip Product Collection + Storage

Who doesn’t love having a snoop at someone else’s makeup collection? Months ago I published a huge “Makeup Collection & Storage” post, but since then the lip product section of my collection has exploded in size. Since I just previously published a huge “Liquid Lipstick Comparison” blog post, it felt only right to create this sort of unofficial sequel where I run through what I own and how I organise it all! So, I hope this post sparks some inspiration for what you’d like to try next, how you might organise your own collection or that it fulfilled your all your snooping needs! If it does, please give it a “like” so I know and let’s crack on!

Liquid Lipstick Comparison

From finding the absolute exact foundation match in a formula you love to discovering a mascara that ticks every box, there are some makeup products beauty junkies will go to the end of the earth to perfect. One of those is finding the ultimate liquid lipstick. At first I was hesitant to try them, but once I did I fell hard and fast and quickly became a woman possessed, determined to try every formula within grasp in search of the holy grail. This blog post has been in the works since around last September, but only recently I’ve been able to confirm I have a favourite and I’m very happy to stop looking (at least, for a long time). Have a found my favourite formula? Yes! Am I happy about who it’s from? Nope! Keep reading to find out how I think these liquid lipsticks stack up against each other and if you find this post helpful or enjoyable, please give it a “like” so I know! Let’s crack on!
