August Lust Have It

Again this month plenty of bloggers seemed to receive their Lust Have It boxes about a week or so before I did – I somehow seem to be quite low on their mailing list and always get it later on. Grr… I am contemplating putting an A in front of both my first and surname in my details on their site and seeing if that makes any difference! 😉 Anyone whose name starts with an A think this would work? Haha… Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator in Pink  ...

Nail of the Day – Marvela Elle

I caught up with some of my lovely friends for dinner this last weekend and the gorgeous Lindsay gave me a cute little gift of two nail colours from Marvela! Knowing what a beauty addict I am she knew I’m always excited to trial a new nail colour! This was a moody grey called Elle (I’m having a bit of a love affair with grey polish this Winter). Two coats gave me perfect coverage and I was super impressed with the fast drying time of this as well – by the time I had  ...

August Bellabox

It’s Bellabox time again! After looking at a few reviews online before mine arrived I wasn’t sure I would be impressed this month; quite a few people seemed a bit dissappointed that it didn’t seem as good value as previous months. However I’m very happy to say my box seemed to contain quite a few different items and I love it! John Frida Precision Foam Colour ConditionerThe deep conditioners that are included in hair colour packs are my favourite so I’m very  ...

Bomb Cosmetics Haul

Back in July I stumbled across a thread on Beautyheaven discussing all things from a brand called the Bomb Cosmetics. They recently became available in Australia through Get Drenched and the lovely BH ladies couldn’t stop raving about how fab their products were – naturally I had to check this out! They also had a special offer where if you spent over $50 they would ship your order for free and include 6 bonus bath treats. I ordered: Pout Polish Gentle Lip Scrub Summer Honey  ...

Nail of the Day – Essie Haute as Hello

For the past few weeks I’ve been fighting off a virus so have spent way more time on the couch sick than I have in years – so frustrating! A few weeks ago I had a few days off with a throat infection (they thought it was tonsillitis), and at the start of last week it flared up again so it was back to the doctor once more!  As I was feeling rather glum I spent some time watching beauty videos on YouTube and since it’s summer in the US, so many beauty gurus had  ...

Time for a hair change!

After quite a few years torturing my hair to be various shades of blonde it finally spat the dummy and started snapping so it was time to give it a little break! It did cope really well considering my natural hair is curly and quite a dark brown and it has suffered through years of blow drys, straightening and bleach being painted on to get it as light as a white blonde. I was always a tad obsessed with hair masks, serums and heat protectors so I think that’s why it was in good  ...

Clinique Gift Time Again at Myer

Woohoo, it’s my favourite (shopping) time – Clinique GWP time! As you probably already know, I tend to hang out until these offers are on and then use it as a chance to stock up on some of my skincare staples. I have to say, I wasn’t totally in love with the gift this time around (the bag didn’t really win me over) but since I needed another bottle of my Clarifying Lotion I thought I may as well get it anyway. I decided to try out the Clarifying Lotion in number 2  ...

Nail of the Day – Maybelline Colour Show in Impeccable Greys

I finally got around to trying out this wonderful winter shade last week. The weather had been grey and gloomy and I had been sick in bed with tonsillitis so it seemed fitting that my nails would reflect my moody state! This is a gorgeous deep grey with a bit of a purple tone and it went opaque with just two coats. My only qualm with dark polishes is that I feel as soon as they start to show the slightest amunt of chipping they need to come off, whereas a lighter colour means you can  ...
