My October Birchbox

This months Birchbox was tailored to each subscribers astrological elements. I am born in January so my box was themed EARTH. I received a green glow in the dark box ( the stars glow) and also ANOTHER drawer styled box ( Thanks Birchbox). I had many great products this month which Im excited to review. Its also a sad month for me, as this will be my last Birchbox to review! Some of you may know that I will be moving abroad in a few months, so I made the ultimate decision to stop my subscription this month. :-( So I'm pretty glad my last box was a goodun! Lord & Berry Matte Crayon Lipstick in Intimacy I actually already have this lip crayon! Ha! Its a perfect mauve shade for me and also a r

My Money Saving Tips: Food and Other Bits

The story of my life is that a large chunk of my money is spent on food and going out! Over the last few years I have been able to put together some staple ways thats I can save some money and it also make a difference on my wallet. This months focus is on Food and Other bits. I previously put together a post on how I save money when it comes to Beauty and Fashion and the last and final instalment will be on Travel.

My friends and I had the whole range, Gold, Green, Brown to Bright Purple! The good old days. I then went onto wearing black liner or Black Kohl rimming my waterline. I liked the feeling of having intense goth eyes, especially after it would start smudging onto my skin! The obsession did not stop there. Over the years I have bought and collected many eyeliners which I have slightly changed in the way I use them. More recently I love a basic black or brown pencil smudges above my lashes, which creates a fuller

My September Birchbox

I am really loving the drawer style boxes we have received as of late! They are so useful when stacked. Literally have two now and they are becoming extra storage in my makeup section! A little note before I get started! This months box is themed ‘Heroes’ , with Birchbox celebrating heroic women which includes us subscribers. A lucky winner ( a subscriber) designed this months birchbox. The full Q&A with her can be found at The September box came with two makeup items which was super exciting for me! We also got to choose which products of two, we wanted from the Australian brand ModelCo. ModelCo Highlighting Trio A great trio of creamy pigments which are great for the c

My August Birchbag

The August birchbox has instead come this month in a great little Scuba Birchbag. I received my samples in a Pink Pufferfish coloured rimmed, grey pouch bag. Great little bag for the summer travels. Its deep enough to fit all essentials whilst travelling. This bag is one of many Birchbags I've received and they are actually super cute and usable. This months bags had some great treats which I was also able to use on my travels and they actually come to use. Every bag came with a Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner and all subscribers had the opportunity to choose their shade. Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Mulberry This eye liner was an birchbox exclusive this month. I LOVE eyeliners, especially o
