My LUSH Party Experience

Happy Sunday!

As you already know, I am such a big fan of the Lush brand, I love their products and they have a great code of ethics towards the treatment of animals and attitudes on environmental impact. So I have pretty much been demanding to organise and attend a Lush party ever since they started advertising them and pushed the matter even more so when I found out you get to make your own bath bombs in store!

Can you say #ButterballsForDays ?

A small group of us Melbourne bloggers got together and made it happen so I vlogged the entire experience for you to watch! We got to make our own Butterball bath bombs, play and sculpt with FUN and then even had our own private shopping experience where we got to browse and play with products in store!

Confessions of a Beauty Addict

Today I'm opening up the post to you guys. 

What is one thing/ step that you always skimp on when it comes to beauty and grooming? 

I must confess, I absolutely hate having to wash my hair (ugh- why is it so bloody thick?) I mean, I'm pretty sure the entire reason dry shampoo was invented is because I exist. I also have a love/ hate relationship with painting my nails. I absolutely love when they're lovely, painted and manicured but it doesn't last long on me because I hate to wear the same colour for too long! I'll seriously get so bored with a colour that I will starting picking at the polish until I have ruined at least one nail... and you know when one nail is a goner the rest have to come off! It's basically the law.

A Trip Down Memory Lane...

I have been lucky enough to travel around Europe on more than one occasion in my life and those experiences have left me with priceless knowledge and life experiences.

Growing up in Australia and feeling so far removed from the rest of the world has left me with a itch to scratch and began my love for travelling and exploring. If money wan't a part of the equation, I would pack up my things and leave tomorrow if I could, which is something I have contemplated on a fair few occasions!

Don't get me wrong, I do love my friends and family and I would miss them all terribly... but I've never felt 'at home' anywhere expect when I'm travelling.

Back on track... I was feeling a little nostalgic about a trip I took back towards the end of 2013 with my best friend, Sarah. It was the first time we had both been away from our families while travelling and it was seriously the time of our lives. I have picked some of my favourite pictures from the trip to share with you, which include snaps from London, Edinburgh, Munich, Paris, Amsterdam and Switzerland.

'Hello Spring!' Drugstore Makeup Tutorial

 Happy Sunday my loves!

It's been a long while since I posted a makeup tutorial so I thought it would only be right to share one with you today.

We're fast approaching Spring here in Melbourne and if the last few days are anything to go by, we will be defrosting soon! 

I've been into wearing very minimal, glowy makeup recently which was the main inspiration for this look as I have been wearing it non-stop. it almost seems silly to do a tutorial because it is truly that simple, but I love it none the less. 

Keep reading to check out how I got this look!

25 Blog Post Ideas | For Beauty & Lifestyle Bloggers

Writer's block can hit you out of nowhere. 
We've all been there and I am especially guilty when it comes to freaking out about not having any ideas to write content. I absolutely LOVE blogging so when I come across the dreaded 'writer's block' there's one of two things I like to do. I either find myself waiting for the inspiration to strike or reading through other blogs to bounce off content and post ideas. 

I've come up with a list of 25 blog post ideas that just might pull you through when you're having a rough week, creative wise. I hope these ideas help you out of your funk!

My Perfume Collection

 The nose knows all.

A smell can bring on a flood of memories and even influence a person's mood. 
When you first smell a new scent you link it to an event, a person, a thing or even a moment and your brain forges a link between the smell and a memory.

This is why I love to collect perfumes around important events in my life. I love to wear them and reminisce on the memories that I associate with them. 

Eh, call me nostalgic- I grew up in the 90s!

Get Ready With Me: Weekend Casual Edit

Happy Sunday my loves!

I can't believe it's already Sunday again and another week has come and gone.
I've been keeping super busy the last couple of weeks with uni assignments, but as of tomorrow that will finally be done and dusted! I will be using the coming week to get a bit of well deserved R&R and to write up some new blog posts for the coming month.

Okay Anjelique, let's get back on topic.

This week's video is a 'get ready with me' and follows my typical routine as I get ready for a casual Saturday morning.

The Dry Shampoo Edit

Bonjour and Good Morning my wonderful friends!

Up until recently, dry shampoo had never really been a staple when it came to my haircare, but since I have really been putting in the effort to style it I have been finding the need to turn to dry shampoo in order to maintain it.

Now normally, I only wash my hair twice a week because I find that it doesn't get too oily thanks to my naturally curly, dry hair. However, when it gets to around the Day 3 mark, it can start to look a bit manky and in quite similar fashion to that of Severus Snape's.

This is where my dry shampoo addiction comes in.

July Favourites with Melissa Bubbles

Hi friends,

As another month has come to a close (already?!) it means it's time for a new round of product favourites. 

I teamed up with one of my YouTube friends, Melissa Bubbles for this month and we have done two separate videos about our favourite products at the moment. On my channel, AnjeliqueTV we have done our monthly beauty favourites and on Mel's channel we have talked about our 'other' favourites for the month.

Here's what we have been loving for the month of July!

Thought of The Day | Let's Be Frank

I have been feeling a bit stressed lately with a load of uni assignments creeping up on me and I have been overwhelmed with the amount of work I have to tackle. 

Sometimes it's just nice to take a backseat and just reflect on things and how far you've come. 

We don't know anything about what tomorrow will bring us, we can only be certain on one thing...the present.

My Skincare Routine

Hi friends!

After becoming friends with one of blogging's most skincare obsessed, I have hopelessly fallen into a skincare frenzy in which I myself have begun an obsession with refining and perfecting my skincare routine.

Skincare is something that is super important to me, especially because my skin is so oily and prone to acne, I really like to take the steps to ensure my skin can look its absolute best.

So here's a selection of products I'm using on my face at the moment!

Boe Professional VIP Day

Happy Sunday!

Last week, I was ever so kindly invited into the Vanilla Sugar offices here in Melbourne for a secret VIP day with the gorgeous Sammy from the brand Boe Professional.

Myself and a few other bloggers (who conveniently happen to be some of my blogger besties) all got to preview and trial some of the new products that will be coming out later this year and early next year.  It's all very hush hush, but I can confirm that there are going to be some exciting new products released from them!

We all had such a fun time giggling, swatching products and drinking champagne. I started off vlogging the day but as most of the products aren't released yet there was a bit of a limit as to when I could turn the camera on. I hope you enjoy the video anyway because let's be honest, we all get a bit silly when the camera is turned on!
