Recent Beauty & Skincare Purchases

beauty, makeup, skincare, recent purchases

I don’t know what it is, I have gone from someone who really didn’t care too much about makeup, to someone who is ‘must buy ALL the things’, it’s become an addiction!

Anyway, it’s been a while since I last did a recent makeup purchases post, and I figured it was about time I did another one and shared my purchases with you. I’m sure that I have forgotten a few things; I’ve managed to get the $20 reward from the Farmer’s Beauty Club three times this year, and I’m hoping it’s because I bought things during the on double points days, and not because I’ve spent a crap tonne (although, I did buy a Clarisonic Mia 2, which hit the reward mark on its own).  Continue reading →

My High-End Makeup Collection

highend makeup

In October, Charli Marie posted about her high-end makeup collection, and ever since I have been meaning to share my small (I’m a makeup newbie) collection as well. I bought a few items while we were in Canada last year as certain makeup brands/products can be hard to find in New Zealand; so, where possible I have provided links to online stockists/stockists in New Zealand.   Continue reading →

Recent Makeup Purchases

Confession – I am a latecomer to the world of makeup; I turned 30 this year and have only really starting wearing it recently (I’ve had a few lipsticks and mascaras over the years but noting more than that). So, why wasn’t I into makeup until now? It’s partly because I’m lazy and couldn’t really be bothered and partly because I cared too much about what people would think or say (her eyeliner’s all wonky, she’s trying too hard, OMG she looks hideous… my inner critic is no nice!)

Anyway, lately I’ve been buying quite a bit of makeup, and I thought I’d share my recent favourites with you.

Making Being Sick Suck A Little Less

I took Thursday and Friday off work last week because I’m still sick (ugh, the lurgy that lingers). I went to the doctor on Thursday and I knew it was bed-rest before she said anything; the look in her eyes when she went to check to see how swollen the glands in my neck were said it all. My throat still hurts like hell at times, but I’m feeling a lot better than I was on Thursday and my nose isn’t blocked anymore, so, yay?!

I thought that for today’s post, I might share a few of my I’m sick essentials – I know I did a similar post a while ago, but this post contains my skincare essentials (riveting stuff, I know), so let’s get to it…  Continue reading →

My Long-Haul Travel Observations & Carry On Must Haves

I’m missing another Music Monday post this week, and am posting a ‘Things I learnt about long-haul travel’ list instead.

Our trip to Canada in July was my first big trip, and the first time I had been out of New Zealand since I was five; while we were away I started a list called ‘long-haul lessons’ and decided to share it with you. I have been meaning to post this since we got back but it seems I’ve been rather food obsessed lately…  Continue reading →
