NOTD – Sportsgirl Nail It in Lipstick

I rediscovered this at the back of my desk drawer recently and I had forgotten all about it. It was a bit gluggy so might be nearing the end for this little bottle but I have been repurchasing this colour from the Sportsgirl nail collection for years. They do bring out a lot of trend colours for nails but this seems to be a bit of a staple and it was one of the first red polishes I ever bought way back in high school days. It’s the perfect red with a pink tone to it too and I just  ...

February Beauty Basket

Beauty Basket time! I love getting my monthly Beauty Basket. They have had some big issues with postage this month (hence why I am posting the Feb basket at the end of March) and with people not getting emails they sent but when it finally arrived it was well worth the wait. I have found Beauty Basket to have a great selection of products as well as many more full sized items than some of the other beauty boxed. They also added an extra product to apologize for the delay so I am a pretty  ...

March Glossy Box

My March Glossy Box arrived last night! I already knew this had an ‘active beauty’ theme from seeing other blogs online so I was really excited to see what I got. For some reason I always seem to get Glossy Box days after other bloggers which is really annoying but since they are all slightly different I thought I would still share! That’s the main downside to Glossybox, there is about 12-15 products on the list they send and members get a selection of these. Some people  ...

Essie Haul

A few weeks ago (BEFORE Project Pan!) OzSale had a big sale on Essie Polishes with free shipping so I couldn’t pass up the chance to pick up a few. Well OK, maybe more than a few…   I picked up 2 full sized polishes as well as two of the Colour Cubes from the past Summer and Spring collections. Each cube contains four mini polishes in colours that were released as part of that collection. L-R: Meet Me At Sunset, Braziliant, Smooth Sailing and Super Bossa Nova from the  ...

NOTD – Rimmel Pompous

The weather over the last few weeks has been starting to look more like Winter than Summer which inspired me to dig out some darker nail colours. This 60 Second polish was a relatively recend addition to my collection so I was excited to try it out. It looks gorgeous in the bottle – a deep moody purple with very fine silvery glitter and I was pleased to see it applied pretty much exactly the same on the nails. It still required two coats to become opaque, as most of these Rimmel  ...

March I Love This Box

Finally got around to picking this up from the Post Office and blogging about it. That’s my only difficulty with I Love This Box, it arrives registered mail so when I’m at work it ends up at my local post office. They have horrible opening hours so often it can be a week or more before I can get there to pick it up. Again, I was really happy with this month’s box and it’s topping the list of beauty boxes in my opinion at this point. A really good range of products  ...

March Bellabox

Woohoo! I got home from work yesterday to find my lovely blue Bellabox waiting for me. I couldn’t believe it was that time of the month already, the year is flying past! When I opened my parcel the first thing I noticed was there wasn’t an internal box for all my products – rather a calico drawstring bag. I’m not too fussed by this, the bag looks like it will be a nice way or storing some products and I’ve now got so many boxes lying around so happy to have one  ...

Gift With Purchase – Designer Brands Bronzer or Blush with NW Magazine

I love magazine freebies as most of you have already realised and I had to pick up last weeks NW when I saw it had a Designer Brands item free with it at Woolworths. I haven’t tried any of their products but have heard good things so will let you know the verdict. Unfortunately, I am still on Project Pan so I have to put this away in a box until I am done, but I thought I’d swatch it and see what it was like. There were two options for colours but I liked the bronzer much  ...

Priceline ‘I Feel Beautiful’ Event

On Saturday morning I was up bright and early to toddle off down to the shopping centre for the Priceline event they were holding for their ‘I Feel Beautiful’ campaign. The campaign focuses on the results of a suryey conducted by Priceline last year about what makes Australian women feel beautiful. I have been a big fan of the events run by Priceline during 30 Days of Fashion and Beauty so I was excited to see what this was all about. The event involved talks from beauty  ...
