Product of the Day: Real Techniques Core Collection

Last week I received a very exciting parcel all the way from the US – yep my Real Techniques order from iHerb had arrived! For those of you who haven’t yet heard about this fabulous website yet, iHerb is a company in the US that ships health foods and a range of beauty brands to Australia at a crazy cheap price.For example, this collection retails in Australia for $44.99 and is just US$17.99 (plus US$6.00 postage) – amazing! I have recently had to throw out yet another  ...

September Lust Have It

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of September and that means it’s time for another Lust Have It to arrive. I must confess, this month I couldn’t help myself and was busy stalking blogs to see who had recieved their pack before me and what it contained. I was hopeful that LHI would’ve sorted out some of the issues they were having the last few months with the new influx of subscribers from Glossybox, timing wise my parcel was back to normal but I was a bit  ...

Heat Group Warehouse Sale Haul

Yep, I caved… Was to be expected really –  a sale this good 5 minutes from my house? Too good to not have just a little peek! I was quite proud of my self restraint, came away with quite a few little bits for the bargain price of $34.  My bargains! I really wanted to see what they had available from Essence since it has recently been a brand I am loving and who can go past the adorable little tubs of blush and eyeshadow from Bourjois? The prices were pretty good and  ...

Attention Melbourne Beauties: Heat Warehouse Sale!!!

Afternoon beauties! Heard about this sale recently and I thought it was only fair to share, hopefully some of you are Melbournites and can make it along to score some bargains! I used to go to these religiously a few years back and they were always a really good way of picking up makeup from some really good brands at crazy prices. It’s been a few years since I went to one but they have now moved factories (to like 5 minutes away from my house – dangerous) so while I’ll  ...

Nail of the Day – Rimmel Wine Not

I rediscovered this shade while rummaging through my nail polish collection last weekend and I’m really liking it! It only took two coats (although I was quite generous when applying it) to get a lovely opaque finish. The finish is OK, lasted about 5 days before it started to chip but I was a bit lazy and skipped a top coat so I’m sure this would’ve helped! Hope you are having a beautiful day!

MUA Makeup Acadamy Haul

I saw on a forum a few weeks ago that MUA (a budget UK brand) were having a promotion where if you ordered cosmetics to the value of 8 pounds, you got their Immaculate Collection Eyeshadow Palette free! I had been eyeing off some of their neutral palettes for a little while now as they had been compared to the Urban Decay naked palettes. They ship to Australia too for quite a good shipping price (approx 7 pounds) so I was in! While I was online I decided to try out a few of their Love  ...

Priceline Bargain Perfume Haul

When I finally got my quarterly Sister Club rewards voucher from Priceline I promised myself it would stay safely in my wallet until I REALLY needed something. That lasted all of about ten seconds when I saw my local priceline was clearing out some old fragrence sets and selling them at half their reduced price! I couldn’t pass these up: I love having mini bottles of perfume to throw into my handbag and these were on sale for $32 for both – that’s crazy! So once my voucher  ...

Nail of the Day – Orly Hot Shot

So this was the polish I spotted on the fingers of Zoe Foster and it was so eye catching I had to find out what it was! It was a lovely neon red shade that made her hands look nicely tanned (in the middle of winter). needless to say, I jumped onto ebay and ordered it as soon as she told me what it was. The photo really doesn’t capture just how bright it is but I am in love with it and have been rocking it on my toenails also for the last few weeks. So pleased I have found a way to  ...

Meeting Zoe Foster as part of the Melbourne Writer’s Festival

A few weeks ago now, I was lucky enough to pick up a ticket to an event which was being held as part of the Melbourne Writer’s Festival – a conversation with the beautiful Zoe Foster. If you don’t know who Zoe is (and you totally should!) she’s the ex-Cosmo beauty editor who is now spending her time sharing her beauty tips through Mamamia, writing fiction books and laughing alongside Hamish Blake. She has been a long time girl-crush of mine ever since I first read  ...
