Pink Pout Perfection

As much as I love wearing bold funky lip colours, I tend to keep it more low key when I’m at work as I do need to keep it quite professional, so I’ve been turning to pinkie shade quite a bit in the last few months. It’s so easy to apply, maintain and re apply without a mirror which is so convenience. I also feel it gives me a more fresh neutral look when used alongside some other simple products. I also prefer to wear pinky shades during the summer and stick to dark bold colours during autumn/ winter or special occasions during the summer. I really enjoyed sharing with you all my favourite red lip products a few months ago so in this post I will be sharing my most used pink lip products.Most

Banana and Walnut Loaf

I love waking up on a Saturday and getting a banana loaf in the oven. My husband wakes up to a beautiful aroma around the house and a grin on his face, knowing exactly whats going on in the kitchen. Its not often but when I do, the loaf is only around for a day or so as its such a favourite of ours! The recipe I use is really easy to make and can be made within the hour all ready to enjoy first thing in the morning. I buy banana to last the week on the weekend but sometimes we dont get through them and by the next weekend they are the perfect ripe consistency to make a loaf with. I find that the sweeter the banana is, the less sugar I use altogether. This recipe uses 3/4 cup sugar which I fi

ELF Lined and Lovely

I haven’t used ELF products in a while, but I remember using the brand when I was younger, as the products were affordable and really good. I’m sure the products were a few pounds and mostly out of stock whenever you wanted something really good! I would have to order my products online when I was in the UK, so it was really nice to see that here in the Australia, you can buy the products in store after having a play around! I love their under eye setting power. I was given this Eyeliner set at a recent Bellabox pop up shop that I attended and I’m glad I have had the chance to give them a go. The Lined and Lovely set came with two liquid eye liners in Jet Black & Midnight and a black pencil


Thank you BLAQ for sending me these popular products from your brand! I have used the BLAQ charcoal mask before when I was sent a sample in my Bellabox and have also used similar products from other brands. Charcoal products are the current trend and Blackhead extraction, Teeth Whitening and Eye Mask are all over social media. Charcoal is great to lift and extract impurities from the skin and having oily skin I do find that my skin gets congested and is prone to breakouts, so I tend to lean more towards products that contain it due to my great experiences with them. These BLAQ products are not just aimed at women, but also men and my other half really enjoyed using these along with me to mak

Update | What's been going on ...

It’s been an amazing year which just flew by . Everyone told me this would happen and to cherish and make the most of every moment. It’s been a year now since my husband and I got married and I moved to Melbourne. I also just turned 30 so that’s been a big milestone too. I can’t really account for the whole year as it only feels like it’s been a few months but I have finally settled in with my new life. In the beginning it was very weird to even be on the same time zone as my husband and to see him every day. I suddenly had a new life/ role as a wife which was over whelming and I had to make my own choices on things I’d never dealt with before but also to share those decisions and responsibi

Model Co

Model Co is an Australian brand that started off with their popular heated eye lash curlers nearly 15 years ago and then has gone on to creating over 250 products! I was very kindly sent these three lovely products from some of their bestsellers and instantly fell in love with the pink packaging. I have really enjoyed the goodies that were sent to me and one product in particular, I have been using more or less everyday since I got it! Have a read below on my thoughts. Magic Makeup Blender I love a good coloured beauty sponge and this bright pink one is really popping! It makes applying your makeup so much more fun. I don’t use beauty sponges very often as I find it really time consuming to

Bellabox | All About New

This year we have started off with the “All About New” box and were sent our goodies in a standard white box but that’s forgivable as I’ve really enjoyed using all the products that we were sent. I have had more than a few favourites this month which was quite exciting. I cant believe how fast the first month of the year has already flown by but we will soon all be receiving our second box! Karen Murrel Lipstick This all organic lipstick is made up of a vegetable fat which is yielded from the Candelilla plant (which grows in northern Mexico) Evening Primrose Oil and Castor oil. These ingredients combined I love the motto the brand has “Nothing nasty touches my lips” as its natural and free

Toastie Heaven

I am such a sucker for carbs, especially bread! I love sourdough, bagels, tiger bread, brioche , white bread, seeded bread, baguettes, you name it, I love it! As much as I try to reduce my consumption of carbs I will always come back to it and but try be sensible with how much I stuff my face with it! As of late I have been trying to jazz up the ingredients I add to my bread after toasting it to make it more fun and enjoyable. I do love bread and butter but sometimes variety is good. I wanted to share with you some toasties that I love to eat. I literally just toast some bread and chuck the gorgeous ingredients on top and enjoy with a cup of tea. I like to use Sourdough, Bagels or a Vienna l
