Recent Favourites – 1

Hey Everyone,

I’m sorry its been a while since my last post, but I am going to be changing my posting schedule to Sundays! I work a Monday-Friday job and so changing the day of posting hopefully means I will have more time to dedicate to my blog. Rather then trying to get something posted on a Wednesday.

Onto the post! I have found that I am not a huge fan (for myself) to make monthly favourite posts, so instead I am just going to wait until I have a few things I just HAVE to share with you before making a post!

These are the items that I have been loving recently! A bit if a mix of items which is always refreshing.

Essence I ❤ Extreme
I picked this up because I had been recommended it by a friend! I am not a fan of using this on the top lashes, as I feel it doesn’t do much for my lashes. On my lower lashes though I love it! The brush has short bristles making it easy to get all of my lashes and give them an even coat. I have had no problems with transferring on my lower lashes so its a winner in my books!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea
I picked this up as apart of my last Mecca order because I was in serious need of a new toner and I forget how cheap Mario Badescu actually is! So I picked up this bad boy and I have no regrets. I think I am forever converted to this bad boy. At the start I had a little trouble with the spritzer but it seems to have worked itself out and now works perfectly. The spritz gets all of my face and a bit of my neck easily which I am thankful for as it means this product will last me a long time.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil
After all the hype from friends I had to get this and I am so glad that I did. I use this at work and my lips are loving it! I am worried I am going through it a little too quickly but either way I am glad that I have this. The doefoot applicator is still in good condition, which is something I was worried about. I have also dropped this many times and it hasn’t smashed so that is also a win. Wearing this oil has also stopped me from biting my lips so much. So overall, a good product and I am so glad that I have it.

Travellers Notebook Cover – Harry Potter Style (Created by Paper Flower Design as a custom cover)
I AM SO IN LOVE. I got this custom cover made for my LT 1917 Bullet Journal and it is perfect and just what I wanted. On the back is the Hufflepuff crest because I am a proud Hufflepuff! For those curious, this is also the same size as the Hobonichi Techo Cousin and the cover has been designed the same way that they are. The notebook slips into pockets on either cover meaning that the cover is easily interchangeable with notebooks of the same size. I have wiggle room in this cover which is awesome! So if my next Bujo gets really junkie it wont really matter. If you want to see more of whats inside either my Bujo or more of the cover in the future, check out my planner Instagram: Casually Planning

February Favourites 2016!

Hey Guys!

So even though this year February managed to slip in another day, its still flown by and so much has happened I can’t believe it! This month I also have a none beauty favourite that I have to mention because it was truly an amazing event and it deserves all the acknowledgement it can get!

But first to the beauty favourites! I haven’t got as many as last month and that is mainly because I was working most of the month so I didn’t really have the chance to play around with lots of different products.

Here is an overview of all the products that I have been super dooper loving this month! This month there is a bit more of a balance between high end and drug store and I am happy about that because it proves to myself that you don’t need to spend heaps of money to get amazing products!

My Urban Decay Naked Palette is starting to look more and more used and I am loving it! As you can see the shade Virgin has hit pan and this makes me so excited and kinda sad at the same time! I use that shade almost daily at work just in the crease and as a brow highlight. Gotta try making getting ready for work as quick as possible and I found that this shade does that! I was using this palette constantly lately because it is just quick and easy to use, I will generally (for work) just use Virgin and another bolder shade as my lid colour and just leave it as that! It works and it looks like I have put in a bit more effort than I actually have! I have written a review on this palette which you can find here.

This is the Australis Extender Lash and Brow. As you can see, mine is not looking so pretty anymore and this is because I use this to set my brows! I have been using this for a long time and find that this is just as good as my ABH Clear Brow Gel which is great because this is an Australian brand and something that everyone can get from Priceline! I have really been enjoying this and will be repurchasing this when I finally think this poor product has had enough.

Can never forget old and faithful Urban Decay Primer Potion. I have been using this all month and love it! I think I’m starting to get to the end of it and that makes me really sad! I normally always wear this with my Inglot Gel Eyeliners but recently have just been using this by itself and my eyeshadows are still looking amazing at the end of the day even with my creasing eyes! I am super happy and will gladly repurchase this when it finally (and sadly) runs out!

My last beauty item is this Romance Blush by Makeup Geek. I have had this for a while, but until recently when I moved it to it’s own palette I had’t used it very much, now I use it all the time and love it! It does make me interested in getting more Makeup Geek blushes but I will just have to wait and see! I find that this lasts on my skin really well and works best for days where I just want more of a natural glow rather then a full on blush look. This is super pigmented so be careful!

Bloggers United Adelaide Event logo

My last favourite for the month is the event that was held by the beautiful people from Bloggers United AU. This event was held Sunday 28th Feb and it was a chance to meet up with fellow bloggers and talk to some amazing Australian Brands! I will later have a post dedicated to what happened and then throughout the next few months you will hopefully see reviews on some of the products that I received at the event! This was such an amazing opportunity to meet new people and see that there are a lot more fellow Adelaide Bloggers then we all originally thought!
