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 →

Do One Things Every Day That Scares You (7 Things To Do In 2015)

flight, fear, do one thing every day that scares you

This year, one of my ‘bonus’ goals was to seek adventure/do more things that scare me, and so far, facing my fears seems to be what I have made this year about (which has been equally parts liberating and terrifying).  Continue reading →

I know, I know; it’s only been a month since I last did a ‘taking stock’ post. I just thought that seeing as Ive been pretty down lately, it might be a nice idea to take some time out to think about the things going on around me, in the hopes that it might give me some perspective.

I am going to try my best to avoid being sarcastic and flippant and to answer each question as honestly as possible. I’ve recently realised that I used humour as a shield when I’m feeling vulnerable, but instead of sounding funny, I end up looking like a huge bitch… Continue reading →

Treat Yo Self: Me Time

treat yo self, lazy day, beauty, skincare

The last couple of weeks have been a bit hectic, so seeing I didn’t have much to do this weekend, I decided to have some much needed me-time; which brings us to now.

Right now, I’m sitting on my bed after taking a bath, listening to Gramatik (a huge thanks to my workmate Sue for the suggestion), and drinking Rose Bud tea. It feels great to be sitting back chilling out, although after having such a full on couple of weeks, I kind of don’t know what to do with myself (anyone else get that?).

I thought that today, I’d share a list of the things I do to unwind, because ‘me time’ is the best time (and sharing is caring).  Continue reading →
