5 Feel Good Tracks | #GetHappy


In a mid-week slump? 

Isn't it weird how one minute you could be down in the dumps and the next minute you could be radiating positivity and it's all because of music? A song that perhaps takes you back to your youth, or reminds you of that wild night out with your best friends, music has the ability to change our mood instantly. 

So for today's post I've taken the liberty of compiling a list of my Top 5 'Feel- Good' tracks to vanquish those 'Hump- Day' blues and get ready for the weekend ahead! Also, if you haven't get make sure you check out my previous post, 10 Ways To Feel Better Today!

My Everyday Summer Makeup | #FOTD



Hello my wonderful internet friends!

How has your week been? 

For today's post, I bring you my Everyday Summer Makeup!

Typically, during Summertime (especially in the Australian Summer), I will try and steer away from makeup as much as possible. I hate the feeling of having makeup on your face and sweating, it literally makes me feel like I'm conceiving the biggest pimples known to man and ugh, I just hate it. I can't even think about it right now. Ha! 

The exception to the rule is if I'm out and about, having lunch with friends or even a cute little shopping date- sometimes a girl has just gotta feel good! 

So I've narrowed down the products I would typically wear on a day to day basis and any new goodies that I'm absolutely loving at the moment!

The Wednesday Edit: My Top 5 Skincare Picks

My grandmother always taught me to never skimp on two things, great skincare and good food. Wise words to live by, I think.

Today I want to share with you my top 5 picks of what I believe everyone needs in their skincare life! From moisturisers to micellar waters, I've narrowed down hundreds of different possibilities to the bare minimum products that I think you should be including in your skincare routine. 

Now, before you get your knickers in a twist, I believe in the saying, 'If it's not broke, don't fix it' so please, don't take this to heart- I am not the God of skincare, although I'd quite like to be! ; )

What's In My Bag?


I actually have no idea why there is such fascination surrounding what a woman carries in her handbag. There has to be some sort of Science around it because I too have indulged in numerous videos and blog posts similar to this and it's got me thinking... well, why? 

Okay maybe the specifics of that doesn't quite matter, but it's interesting to think about none the less.

Generally, I'm not one to carry around handbags and usually avoid the unnecessary bulk when I can and when I can't be bothered carrying around a purse and keys I'll usually hand it to the nearest bag wearer to me which is usually my best friend. Sometimes she jokes that I should be paying her a holding fee for carrying my items around all the time, but then I remind her that I'm the one with the license driving her around so that's usually when she pipes down. 

Anyway, the reason I've actually got any contents in my bag at the moment is because I've just come back from an interstate trip and out of necessity, I had to carry a handbag with me.

So without further ado, here's the contents of my handbag!

Healthy Banana Bread Recipe | Gluten Free, Paleo & Sugar Free


This banana bread will change your life. 

I'm not even joking, I think I've miraculously become a genius and literally devised the perfect banana bread in existence. Like, ever.

That's how confident I am that you're going to like this. Heck, not even like- you're going to fall head over heels for it and want to keep making it time and time again. You might even notice yourself secretly encouraging your bananas to turn brown JUST so you can whip out this recipe. It's okay, just remember you're not alone.

SUMMER #OOTD


Hello my beauties!

I am writing to you from sunny Queensland today, as I'm currently on holiday with some gal pals! It's been such a fun week away and I don't want to come home! 

Summer is definitely one of my least liked seasons- I mean if it were up to me it would be Winter 365 days a year! The sun and I just don't get along- hence why I am so pale! 
For example, we went to one of the theme parks the other day and now my nose is burnt! >.< 
It literally doesn't matter how much I slip, slop, slap, seek and slide, I STILL GET BURNT!
I'm so over it!
WHY YOU DO DIS SUN?! 
I think I could definitely be mistaken for Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at the moment too!

Anyway, here's this week blog/ video for you, a Summer Outfit of The Day!
I hope you like it!

THE BEAUTY SCENARIO TAG

Happy February Lovers!

An fun little post for you guys this week- I was tagged by the lovely Gabrielle at A Glass of Ice to do the Beauty Scenario Tag! Everyone loves a good tag post and it's a great way for you guys to get to know me a little better too!

HERE WE GO!



You have to get rid of all of your foundations and only keep one high end and one drugstore, which do you keep?

NOOOO! 
I would probably go with my Revlon Colourstay and Nars Sheer Glow. 
This is too hard already! 
>.<

You go for an interview and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth.  Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely?

Depending on what the interview was for- I think I would subtly try and tell her by pointing it our on myself hoping she would get the idea. If not, just let it be! Haha


You're not feeling yourself and you need a pick-me-up lipstick, which do you go for?

Anything BRIGHT! Bold colours come at me! I've been loving Rimmel's 107 at the moment so that's what I would probably be reaching for!


You go back in time for a day to your teenage years, how would you do your hair or makeup differently?

I would tell a younger me to get my hair out of that stupid frizzy ponytail and embrace your curls! Also, stop lining your waterline with black eyeliner, you look like a freaking Panda!


You ask your hairdresser for for a shoulder length Pixie Lott hair cut but they hear wrong and give you a pixie cut, what do you do?

A) Smile, say thank you, call your mum and cry hysterically
B) Cry in the chair and things get awkward
C) Complain to the manager and demand a refund

Oh definitely A. 
Been there done that. Not with a pixie cut but I've had many stressful trips to the hairdresser. I've just learnt not to trust them anymore! HA!


Your friend surprises you with a 4 day city break and you have one hour to pack, which 'Do It All' palette do you pack in your makeup bag?

Where are we going?! Haha
Girl, it's the Naked Palette all the way! I like to keep it neutral on the eyes because I always prefer a bold lip so definitely a palette like that would do the trick- perfect for evening or daytime looks!


Your house has been robbed, don't worry everyone is safe, but your beauty stash has been raided.  What's the product you really hope is safe?

This is actually my worst nightmare! Do you know how much makeup costs?! 
Not so much products but I hope my makeup brushes are safe!
Seriously though- it's an investment!


Your friend borrows makeup and returns it in an awful condition.  Do you:

A) Pretend you haven't noticed
B) Ask them to re-purchase it
C) Secretly do it back to their makeup

B.
First of all this would never happen because I don't let ANYONE touch my makeup! 
Haha it's my prized possession, though if something did happen which was a complete accident I would understand- I would be upset but understand. 
However, if they returned it and didn't tell me- watch out! Imma come knocking on your door!

JANUARY BEAUTY FAVOURITES


Can you believe it's already February?!

Where has the month gone?! We're 1/12th of the way into 2015 and I'm kind of freaking out. >.<

But srs, just think that Christmas was more than a month ago. Wowza!

I have been trying and loving all sorts of new products this month and found it so hard to condense them all into one little video, so this one's a pretty chatty one but there's some absolute product gems in my stash this month that I think you kids are gonna love. I honestly can't stop raving about them to anyone who will listen so if you would love to chat some more about them please don't be afraid to leave me a comment or tweet me- I would love to hear about what you're loving too!
