May Favourites

Oh hey there friends!

Happy Sunday!

We're kicking off the end of the month with my May Favourites. I wasn't trialling too many new products this month so they are not many products to talk about but I have been loving them all the same. Let's just say that May was all about quality over quantity!

30 Days of June ANNOUNCEMENT!

Hiya everyone!

Since I have been loving doing 30 day challenges lately (Hello my Yoga with Adriene friends!) I thought I would finally do one of my own. I have committed myself to posting a new blog every single day for the month of June. 

Be there holidays, birthday or even sick days- I am making it my mission to complete this 30 day challenge I have set out for myself. To keep things interesting, I have allocated specific days where I talk beauty, lifestyle etc. More, so it's not beauty post after beauty post- we all need a little variation in our lives! ; )

Through doing this, I hope we can all challenge and support each other within the blogosphere as we each undertake our own 30 day challenges this June. Be it to drink more water or to even go to bed earlier, I'm sure there's something in all of our everyday lives we can challenge ourselves with. 

I'd love for you to leave me a comment sharing what 30 day challenge you're planning to undertake this June so we can compare notes!

I can't wait to see your bright, smiling faces on the 1st of June!

My 21st Birthday + VLOG! | The One with the Food

Food, food and more food.

That's pretty much how the entire week of my birthday went. 

Hey, it's not everyday that your 21st Birthday comes around so I thought it would celebrate in style! Throughout the week I spent time with some of my best friends, (a few who flew interstate for my Birthday party- absolute legends) and family. 

It was a week filled with food, laughter and great company- and it was definitely much more than I could've asked for and I felt truly blessed, surrounded by my family and friends.

But enough of that mushiness, I've complied some pictures from the week and my Birthday Party just to share this special occasion with you! 

Towards the end of the post I've also included some pics from the photo booth I had at the party, so you'll be able to see that my DIY Photo Booth Props worked a treat! Don't forget to drool over the lollies on your scroll down! ; )

Monster High: Ghoulia Yelps Makeup Tutorial


It's Saturday and you've come across an unexpected blog post- yippee!

Working in collaboration with a few of my fellow Aussie Beauty Babes we came up with the idea of doing a huge Monster High Makeup Tutorial collab because why not and costume makeup is fun. 

After the theme of our collaboration was decided, I sat through and watched a few episodes of Monster High to get a feel for the character and ogle over some pretty cool makeup looks. Ghoulia, as her name would suggest is a member of the un-dead who only speaks Zombie. I'm pretty happy with the makeup look I've come up with and I would say it's a pretty accurate recreating of her makeup look on the show. She would be an awesome character to cosplay too, just watch out if you're a first time contact lens wear like myself, it look me a good half hour to get the ruddy things in!

DIY Photo Booth Props

Photo Booths are so in right now and what I think are probably one of the most fun things in this world! Last weekend, for my 21st Birthday I think I spent about 50% of my night in the photo booth, taking some funny and great shots with my friends party guests. Although some props were provided as a part of my photo booth party package, I decided I wanted to get creative and make my own customised ones too, something that was unique to me and my birthday.

I decided to design my own props for free using Pic Monkey and after printing them, mounted them to cardboard and cut them out. I used an Xacto Knife to cut any hard to reach areas and then used a hot glue gun to attach the cut outs to wooden skewers. 

 Perfect, customised Photo Booth props!

I used these FREE PRINATBLES from Hip Hip Hooray and also some of my own which you can DOWNLOAD and customise for FREE, here

Seriously, it's that easy.

Essie's 'Go Ginza' | #NOTD

A gorgeous soft pastel pink, Essie's Go Ginza has had me mesmerised since the day I spotted it in store. It's such fantastic shade and very versatile as it can be worn in both the Summer and Winter months and it also works fantastically with distressed and white denim. 

I favour Essie nail polishes over OPI as I find that the colour range is fantastic and the actual wear of the nail polish on my nails lasts the whole week! Sometimes even longer depending on how rough I am with my hands. 

What do you think of this colour, is it something you might go for on your own nails?

Birthday Makeup Tutorial



This week I turn the big Two-One and in preparation for that, I've decided I want to get into the festivities early! I think it's always the build up to an occasion that's more exciting than the actual day so I'm really milking it for all it's worth because after this week, my birthday will be over for another 365 days and that thought is a little bit depressing. 

I'll admit it, I'm a bit lame and like to plan out my makeup for all sorts of special events so as you can imagine, my birthday is no exception.

For as long as I can remember, I've been loving this Girl About Town lipstick and have even worn it on past birthdays too. Every time I wear this lipstick I think of celebrations, friends, family and just general good times so this shade definitely brings about some nostalgia for me too. 

I'm planning to keep my actual birthday quite low key and just enjoy the company of my family and friends and then later on this weekend plan to have a little party to celebrate. Don't fret, this won't be my only Birthday themed post for this month! ; )
