Review | Marc Jacobs Gatsby Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer

Thursday, 26 February 2015


I have been scouring beauty shelves everywhere looking for, as I call it, a 'neutral shimmer'. Something not too bold, like a taupe or brown, but with a bit of shimmer, a bit metallic to make it something different. When I saw Marc Jacobs Gatsby staring at me from the shelf, I thought I'd found it. After a few applications and some weeks of wear, here are my thoughts.

Skincare | Spain Hauls

Sunday, 22 February 2015


So, you saw my huge fashion and makeup hauls and I'm here to bring you the last one: skincare. The thing about Europe is that every country is closer to France than Australia and therefore have much better and cheaper selections of French skincare. Hence, that's what comprises the majority of my haul but there are a few other bits thrown in.

Makeup | Spain Hauls

Thursday, 19 February 2015


Let's just say, I went a little bit crazy makeup shopping in Spain. In my defence, a lot of these are currently unavailable for purchase within Australia, and the rest are far cheaper overseas. Either way, I had a great time picking up some very exciting bits and I want to tell you about them!

Sunday, 8 February 2015


The transition period between seasons is always an awkward time for beauty as the weather changes and wreaks havoc on your skin or you're not quite sure what colours suit the season. Between summer and autumn you're caught with humid air and continually shrinking days Here are my recommendations for the best products to pull out during this transitional period.

Five Minute Face

Thursday, 5 February 2015


We've all had that morning: we woke up a bit late and have completely run out of time to put on your full face of makeup. I know I've certainly had to master the five minute face over the last few years of late nights and far too early mornings. We're looking for easy products that you can apply without tools and make you look put together in a few steps.

Tag | Beauty Talk

Tuesday, 3 February 2015


Many months ago Jessica from Jessica's Beauty Garden created the Beauty Talk Tag to encourage a bit of nosy chat amongst bloggers about our favourite thing: beauty products. I love a good tag and a good chat so why not do the tag? There are eight questions so here we go:


A Perfect Palette

Sunday, 1 February 2015


Is the search for the perfect eyeshadow palette ever over? I think this time it is. We all encounter that point in our beauty collection when we notice a serious pattern in our buying. For me, I recently realised I have a bit of an obsession with buying taupe eyeshadows and, fortunately, this has led to the purchase of the perfect palette.
