Charlotte Tilbury: The Dolce Vita Palette | 1 Palette, 4 Looks

Hola Amigos!

As many of you might already know if you follow me on any of my social media channels, I am totally, utterly and completely obsessed with my Charlotte Tilbury products. I am most impressed by my eyeshadow quad in the shade 'The Dolce Vita" and the many eyeshadow looks I can create with just this one palette. 

I've devised four looks for you from this palette, although I'm positive that I could easily create more. The pigmentation and pay off in these colours is pretty amazing and the formula feels so buttery under your fingers when swatching the colours. I only wish there were more sparkly flecks in the gold shade- that would be so gorgeous!

If you would like to see what looks I have created then please keep on reading!

As you might have seen on my instagram the other day, I was at the Vanilla Sugar offices with Boe Professional and we were so kindly gifted some Boe Pro goodies that I had to try out immediately!

What's In My Makeup Bag?

Happy Sunday!

I'm coming to you with a sneak peek into what's in my makeup bag at the moment.

If you want to see what products I'm currently reaching for with a little twist, then just keep on reading! 

I also had a go at a stop motion video which I'll admit- it was quite tricky and time consuming to film and edit but I'm pretty proud of it, especially because this was a first attempt! Leave me your thoughts below!

HOW TO: Get Fuller Lips


Alright, alright, alright!

Plumped up lips have been the craze for a while now and thanks to Kylie Jenner, the trend is only going to keep on growing.

Personally, I've seen some wackily over drawn lips popping up in my news feed and Instagram and I've just about had it! Ladies, there is a way over-line your lips so that they look as natural as possible, all without looking like a children's entertainment clown. 

With that in mind, I've devised some tips to help you fake the perfect pout.

City Chic Lingerie


Big busted women of the world, listen up!

We're getting a bit frisky today the blog, with some lovely lingerie for us all to ogle at.
My lovely friends over at City Chic got in touch and asked me to talk about some of their new lingerie line and really, how could I say no?

When has a girl ever been able to turn down lingerie?!

All of my fellow bigger boobied women will understand me when I say, "Where is the sexy lingerie for my huge boobs?" Well folks, turns out City Chic have the solution! 

The 'Intimates' lingerie ranges from very sexy “wear in the bedroom” – to every day cute styles. Covering sizes in bras from 14DD through to 22G and briefs from 14-24.

What can I say? I've got you 'covered'.

Trying American Candy!


Howdy!


I know this is predominantly a beauty blog, but I like to keep things interesting so this week I've decided to try something new... literally.

My friend Elli messaged me earlier this week with this idea, so I thought it was only fair she joined me in the video!

Here is a video of us trying out some American Candy/ Snacks! Includes grossed out faces and really questioning what the peanut butter/ chocolate ratio should be for a typical chocolate bar.

Get grossed out with us!

The Cafe Kick: Hendriks Cafe


Are cafes becoming more and more photogenic, or is that just me?

Melbourne is home to some of the best 'hole-in-the-wall cafes' and Hendriks Cafe is no exception.  Located in the South-Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, it is a cafe fit for even the most elitist of locals. The buzzing atmosphere and great food both contribute to the wow factor of this industrial chic cafe vibe. It's perfect for a catch up lunch with friends during the week and great for those weekend family brunch bonding sessions. 

Here's a look of what my friend Jo and I ate when we checked out this cute little cafe last week.

A Mini Haul


It's Haul Time!

I can't resist a good sale, so when I was in the city getting my brows done the other day I dropped into Priceline to check out some of their sale stock. Rimmel was up for 50% off so naturally I treated myself. I also went into Daiso to pick up some sponge cleaner for my beauty blender but they were out of stock! :'( I still walked out the store with some new beauty purchases though- and for $2.80 a piece, how could I resist?

My Benefit Brow Bar Experience


Eyebrows are my religion.

I can spend hours stalking the #BrowsOnPoint hashtag on Instagram and lust after Lily Collins' eyebrows like it's no ones business. After a bad threading experience a few years ago, I refused to let anyone touch my eyebrows and started to do my own. Lately they've not been looking great and I wasn't happy with the shape, so I decided to try out the Benefit Brow Bar in Myer on Bourke St Mall. 
After a few recommendations from friends, I finally braved up and went to get them done and vlogged the entire experience for you!

Read on to see how I found it!

My Top 5 Tips for Staying Organised + Blogging!


Fellow bloggers, this one's for you!

Last month when I undertook the #30DaysofJune blogging challenge, I got a lot of comments about how well I had done with uploading a new blog post everyday. I was very flattered, because I'm known as the worlds biggest procrastinator so it was even more of a compliment for me to read such lovely feedback!
 
It got me thinking that maybe others like myself might need a little push in the right direction when it comes to managing their blogging time so I thought to create a list of my Top 5 Tips on staying organised with blogging. These tips can also be applied to you non-bloggers as well, there's some really great anti-procrastination pointers for you too!

Lancôme Miracle Cushion Foundation Review


The other week I was invited to attend the opening of a new Lancôme store here in Melbourne. 

The event itself was beautiful and I got to catch up with a few blogger friends as we 'oohed' and 'ahed' over the new store and products. If you live in Melbourne, I would highly recommend going to check out their store in Myer on Bourke St- it's such a gorgeous counter! At the event we were kindly gifted the new Miracle Touch Foundation* and I was over the moon to try it as I had been lusting after it for ages!

Read on to see how I found it!

June Favourites


Hello July!

Can you believe it's already closer to 2016 than it is to 2014? What even?!

Today I'm coming at you with another one of my monthly favourites and this one is kind of a mash of all things beauty and non-beauty related. I talk about my new favourite mascara (review here), my new tv obsessions (Wow...Ruby Rose) and my 30 Days of June blogging challenge (click here).

30 Days of June Post Roundup


We did it! 

#30DaysofJune officially came to a close yesterday so I thought I would do a 'round up' post incase you had missed any of it!

I'm really loving setting new challenges for myself, I think the next project I'd like to tackle in the coming months is a re-vamp of the blog- I'm feeling like we need a makeover!

Now that the daily blog posts are over, I am going back into my regular posting schedule which is every Wednesday morning and Sunday evening AEST. Although, I am thinking of adding an extra post a week now- I'm not sure if I should schedule a day or make it a 'surprise'! What do you guys think? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

(Side note - Can you believe it's already July? There's less than six months until Christmas!)
