January Empties

It’s been while since I’ve done an empties post and its mostly due to the fact that I’ve been trying lots of new things so it’s just taken a lot longer to finish a product! Moving to Melbourne has meant that I’ve had to adjust my skin care routine and the types of makeup I can use for my skin feel comfortable. My skin type remains the same at oil/ combinational and the heat/humidity during the summer months doesn't really help as it just makes it worse! None the less I have finished these products and would love to share my thoughts on them. Swisspers Makeup remover Wipes with Micellar and Coconut Water I discovered these wipes when I was sent a single wipe in my Bellabox and although it was

I Won Some Mac Goodies!

I feel so lucky to have won another competition run by Dave Lackie! I recently won these beautiful Mac products on Dave's Instagram platform, by just liking his picture and tagging a friend. A few months ago I also won 2 Guerlain Lipsticks on his twitter platform. So when he got in touch with me for the 2nd time, I was so shocked as I would never have thought I would win again, let alone win to begin with, when he has people in the thousands entering. So thank you again Dave for sharing with your followers and making us smile :-) I thought I would do a first impression look using these combined with some other favourites I have, to create an over all look and see what I think of these newbie

My 30th Birthday

So I finally joined the 30's club! Yaaay Not that I feel any older than I did when I was 29, but hey as they say you’re only as old as you feel. It’s an exciting time and so many friends have told me that life really starts when you hit the big 3..0.. Im super excited to see what the coming years will bring. I had so many things I wanted to tick off my ‘30 before 30’ list which I posted about a few months ago and so many of you all have asked me how that’s going. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get them all done, however I did fulfill about half the list. I will carry on trying to get them all done this year and then move on to the bigger and better goals of my thirties! It was my birthday

Colette by Colette Hayman | Statement Earrings

I have found a store in Australia that I will forever buy my jewellery from! Yaay Moving to Melbourne was also a struggle when it came to shopping. Not knowing where I could find things that I liked and were to my taste. There are lots of shops around, a few that I have heard off in the UK and even fewer where I actually enjoying shopping. Over time I have discovered a few places I like and Colette by Colette Hayman is a favourite when it comes to Jewellery and Handbags! I don't really like wearing really fancy/ extravagant clothing , I like to keep it simple with a statement pieces of jewellery . Ive been through phases where it was mostly all about the bold necklace but these days I've bee

RIMMEL LONDON 60 Second Nail Polish

I don't wear nail polish often but when I do I love wearing deep rich colours. Since moving to Melbourne I've been in my thongs (...NO not a thong, thong..but flipflops!) or sandles more than in shoes, so I want my feet to look cute so I always add a pop of colour to my toes to keep them looking in tip top condition. From my very small range of polishes, I always tend to reach for these three Rimmel London shades to give me bold nails. My favourite thing about the Rimmel polishes is that that have a wide brush, allowing me to coat my nails in two strokes for an opaque finish, without causing streaks. I hate it when you have barely just adding a layer and you decide to go over and sometimes

How I create loose waves on my short hair

I don't really do much to my hair in terms of styling and have it straight most the time, but I do like to add loose waves from time to time when my hair is flat and looking lifeless. I like using my straighteners rather than curling tongs to get a smoother finish and I only use a few products. My curls last until the next day when they become like beach waves for a slightly different look. I like to put curls in my hair after a day or two of washing, preferably in straightened hair, which allows the hair to glide through the straighteners to effortlessly create the waves. Ive put together a video to show you all how I achieve loose waves which adds volume and texture to the hair. I hope you

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour

I decided to treat myself to the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours, whilst I was browsing in Priceline. It was an impulse buy after I received some good news and I don't regret it at all! I bought the shade 810 Plum This Show, 500 Fire Starter and 210 Rose & Shine . I recently wore Plum This Show, on a night out in the city recently, where I was eating and drinking and my lips still looked perfect when I got home, so I wanted to share with you guys the new buy. I loved the liquid lipstick so much that I couldn't stop telling my husband all night long how impressed I was but I could tell that he didn't really care so I gave up! For the application of the liquid lip colour, I prepped my lip

Bellabox Dec 17 | Festive and Fabulous

I cant believe how fast the year has flown by, it feels like only last month that I was enjoying the Xmas break and festivities with my fellow Londoners in the cold, but this year I'm in sunny Australia and its so HOT!! Its a very different experience and feels so weird to associate the xmas holidays with sunny weather. The last Bellabox for the year was shipped out to the subscribers in a very festive red box which is a lovely change to the standard turquoise and came with some beautiful summer related products and all subscribers were sent a gorgeous STYLondon Eyeshadow palette as something special for Christmas. There were four to choose from and the palettes are all named after different


Now that Christmas and New Years is over....I cant believe im turning 30 in 2 weeks! When I was younger I would dream about when I would be 30 & where in life I would be when I got there. I still feel the same as I did 10 years ago, if anything I've gained some weight, look a little older and am a little wiser! This post is NOT about going down memory lane and reminiscing the last 10 years but to celebrate the big 3..0.. and talking about my birthday wishlist! Does anyone else have a list of items in notes on their phone, listing all the things you want? Well I have one called Wishlist and over the past few weeks Ive seen some gorgeous items out there and they have been going straight on to
