2014 Roundup: Instagram & Blog Posts


As 2015 is around the corner I thought what better way to celebrate this past year than with a 2014 Roundup of my favourite Instagram photos and blog posts?!

Here we go...!


1st Row, (L-R): At King's Cross Station on Platform 9/34, Brighton Pier fun, My 20th Birthday, The 4 Amigos,
2nd Row, (L-R): Pink skies on an interstate drive, Dinner at Jamie Oliver's Diner after a gorgeous night on the West End, My first international wedding, Mezzo Mix- my first German love
3rd Row, (L-R): Spaghetti Eis- my other German love, Airplanes feel like home, Meow- I'm a cat!, Eyebrows on fleek
4th Row, (L-R): My first go at Gingerbread-Christmas smells all around! One of my first Christmas videos, Christmas jumper feels, Peppermint crisp love. 


Top Blog Posts of 2014!


A really surprising post coming in at number one, I didn't expect Nail Art to be a very popular post at all! This can only mean one thing- look out for more DIYs like this next year!


Ooh, I hoped this one would make it to the list and it has! Expect a corresponding video sometime next year ^_^


I devote a good chunk of my time to reading travel blogs and watching daily vlogs on YouTube, so I guess it comes as no surprise that other people like doing the same. Hehe, we're so nosey!


I'm actually so happy this made the list too, I hope to continue my #GetTheLook series all throughout next year. If you have suggestions, please let me know!


Seasonal, but very practical- everyone loves a movie guide!

I also want to thank YOU for reading, interacting and inspiring me to keep writing this blog and always strive to create better content for everyone. Hopefully 2015 will hold exciting things in store for all.   



What was your personal highlight of 2014?
Let me know in the comments down below, see you next year!




Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!

How have you been? How was your Christmas? I hope Santa was kind to all of you! ^_^

Okay, I know. I've been the worst blogger ever, but it's Christmas- and if you can't eat until your heart's content and spend quality time with family at Christmas then when can you?!

BLOGMAS | Easy Christmas Sugar Cookie Recipe | AnjelCo


And we're getting festive again with some more baking! (I promise this will be the last one for a while). I know, I know, I'm a bad influence. It's literally a biscuit of baked sugar- but it just tastes so dang good! These babies were literally gone in two days in my house! Let's see if yours can last longer! ; ) This recipe would be perfect for making with your little one and getting creative with your icing, or maybe you're just a big baby like me!

If you're looking for a hot drink to accompany these cookies, or maybe gingerbread is more your thing- make sure you give these a try!

Healthy Paddle-Pops with NO ADDED SUGAR! | AnjelCo


A good old Australian Summer favourite is the ever so faithful Paddle-Pop stick!
I remember devouring these as a kid during the hot Summer months and even sometimes at the school tuck shop!

Trouble is, now that I'm much older I can't exactly eat them the way I used to so I have devised a recipe that contains all natural, organic ingredients and best of all NO ADDED SUGAR!

Not only are these Paddle-Pops a healthy alternative for adults but kids will love them too! A perfect after school treat that won't leave them hyper! This recipe is so simple and a trusty favourite that you can whip up time and time again- I know I have!

#GETTHELOOK: Lily Collins | #FOTD



I have some serious brow envy when it comes to British/ American actress, Lily Collins. Like, it's pretty major- I would marry them. In fact, I would probably marry all of her because she is an absolute babe! #WCW  I went to the cinema to see her in 'Love, Rosie' and she is amaze and has inspired me to grow out my brows. 
HOORAY to no tweezing!

So, without further ado I give you my first ever #GetTheLook

This look is pretty minimal and easy to wear day to day- not to mention the lips give it a awesome Christmas/ Autumnal vibe!

'Vampiress' Halloween Makeup | AnjelCo



Okay, I look sufficiently freaky.

Here's my final instalment of my Halloween inspired series! If you want to check out my previous posts you can find the links here:

X || X

If you're 'lastminutedotcom' this is another great one for you that virtually requires minimal effort on your part! The key to this look is a good bruised eye which can be achieved by using reddish eyeshadow tones as a base and building from there. The more tired and sunken in your eyes look, the better! Don't forget to blend!

So if you want to know how I got these freaky bruised eyes and vampy lip then please keep on reading!

What's In My TRAVEL Makeup Bag? | AnjelCo

I bring you today's post from atop of my suitcase. 

I'm sitting here, cross-legged trying to compress every item of clothing I have shopped just so I can squish in some more. I think I have a sickness, but more on that later. 

Well, it got me thinking that I am yet to do a travel post for you so I have come up with the easiest thing for me to photograph (and talk about) and that's the contents of my makeup bag when I am travelling. 

Enjoy!

GERMAN FOOD TASTINGS + Travel Update!


If you're following me on Instagram then you've probably seen the copious amounts of food on there this past week. If you're not, you should probably start following me so you don't miss out on the food related posts and we can drool together.
