Jamberry Nails Review

Are you frustrated with your chipped nails? Have Shellac manicures ruined your nail bed? Are you time poor but still want your nails to look like you've made an effort? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then read on!

A little while ago, Jamberry got in contact with me and asked me to review their nail wraps* ahead of their October 1st release date here in Australia. I love all things to do with nails and nail art so I was definitely excited to jump on the bandwagon and try them out.

I'm assured that Jamberry nails wraps are made of high quality vinyl adhesive nail wraps and are easy to apply on your nails. They claim to give you a beautiful manicure at a fraction of the price of a salon manicure- which I'm all about. Supposedly, they can last up to 2 weeks on your fingernails and up to 4-6 weeks on your toenails. I was super impressed by these claims, so I put them to the test. Here are my thoughts.

One Brand Tutorial: Boe Beauty & Boe Professional

I love a good budget beauty brand and being a student, I like to shop around for the best quality products with the best prices. I stumbled across the Boe Beauty/ Boe Professional brands earlier this year and was super impressed by the quality and the fact they are a cruelty free, Australian company.

In the past year, I have accrued a lot of products from this brand, so I thought I would try and come up with a 'one brand' makeup tutorial using only these products. There are quite a lot, so some of these products will also be a first impressions as well as a review too.

The Long Hair Edit

Earlier this year, I took the plunge and cut off most of my hair. For someone who has had long hair their entire life, it was a huge change for me. Don't get me wrong, I love my new short hair, but when Irresistible Me offered to send me some Clip In Extensions* to review, I was curious enough to say yes. I know, when you first hear (or read) the words 'hair extensions' you may cringe. For years I only associated them with the girls at school who wore them as a cheap and poorly blended hair accessory.  I had never seen the appeal of hair extensions before as my hair has always been long and thick, but now I am a changed woman with an adult hairstyle, I thought I should give them a fair go.

Lush Haul

How pretty does that bath bomb look? If the striking purple colour doesn't grab your attention then surely the sparkles will! I'm a sucker for Lush products because bath time is the best time and when you have cool products to play with in the bath, it makes it even better! You already know how much I absolutely love Lush, it's no secret that I spend my spare time scrolling through their website and sniffing my way through their stores. A couple of weeks ago, I attended a Lush party with a few friends and we laughed and shopped our way through the Lush store after hours. Here's a few of the things I picked up to replenish my bath product stock.

Wanderlist : My Top 5 Wishlist Travel Destinations

I am a list kind of person. I like to be organised, (sometimes to the extreme) and I hate, absolutely hate being late. I have a huge love for travel and exploring and if money weren't an object, would move countries tomorrow if I could. I want to navigate the world and have an innate desire to travel, which is really the basis of this post and why I have joined my wanderlust and love for lists to bring you the 'Wanderlist'.

FABY Nails 'Ocean Boulevard' | #NOTD

Sometimes when life gets a little busy I often get sidetracked and forget to paint my nails. I know, shocker. In the scheme of things, I suppose it's pretty insignificant, but I do like to present myself as well groomed so when I don't have my nails painted I feel naked.

As you already know, I am a sucker for a dark nail polish- it doesn't matter what time of the year it is! So you can imagine that when I first spotted this FABY Nails polish in 'Ocean Boulevard'*, I was instantly hooked! I love that it still looks dark on the nails at first glance, but in sunlight changes to this gorgeous, dark navy blue hue. I also love the flecks of purple that run through the varnish too, it makes it a very eye catching nail colour, especially in the sunlight.

Face Masks & Tag Videos

If you are a close follower of my social media accounts, you will probably already know some of the familiar faces of blogger friends that I have made this year. One of those gorgeous people is the undeniably bubbly (and aptly named) Melissa Bubbles. Together, we collaborated on each of our YouTube channels to bring you two videos filled with laughter and honesty.

We chose to film the 'Pamper Me Pretty' tag over on my channel, (AnjeliqueTV) and donned some beautiful (read: scary) face masks for the occasion. If you aren't already, I would love it if you would subscribe to my channel (it's free!) and I'll appear in your subscription boxes whenever I upload a new video, so you'll never miss an upload. Make sure you head on over to Melissa's channel and blog as well to see what we got up to in her video!

If you want to keep up to date with everything I'm doing when I'm not blogging, make sure you stay in touch with me on Instagram and Twitter, I'm positive I'll be posting there all weekend. 

Love you lots and I hope you enjoy your weekend wherever you are.

How To Save Money in Your 20s

Your 20s are a trying time in your life financially. You have most likely entered into a world of debt with university loans and alongside that, you are trying to save your pretty pennies for that once in a lifetime trip overseas where you hope to inevitably, 'find yourself'. You may have even applied for your very first credit card or are borrowing money from family members to help pull you through until you land that desired full time job.

You've just entered into the world as an adult and reality has hit you, it's all about that 'money, money, money'. I hate to go full ABBA here, but it really is a rich man (or woman's) world.

Generally, your 20s are the prime of your life- going out, being with friends and your social life is usually of upmost importance and money saving is put on the back burner. Who needs to think about house deposits or buying stocks when you have tequila, am I right?

A few years back, my friend Sarah and I scrimped and saved for our 6 week trip around Europe. I'm not going to lie, it was hard to save up, but we felt so much more free financially and we didn't have to compromise on our sightseeing or shopping. Because this was such a success, I want to share what I have learnt about saving, which will hopefully help you save for whatever you need. Whether it's to pay off a loan, a round the world ticket or even to get you by with your vivacious social life, I'm positive I will have some tips to help you.

Rimmel London x Kate Moss | Lasting Finish Nudes + Swatches

I'm back!

I have been a huge fan of the Rimmel London x Kate Moss line for years, so when they announced a 'nudes' lipstick line I almost wee'd myself in excitement. The day they came out in store, I rushed to the display stand and filled up my hand with swatches like a giddy schoolgirl. I'm not going to lie, my first thoughts were that I didn't like them...not at all! The colours weren't working for me and I felt they had really missed the mark. I returned home, disappointed and defeated. 

However, I wasn't ready to give up that easily so I scoured the internet, blogs and YouTube channels alike and found some fairly positive reviews on these lipstick colours in which I eventually caved in and thought 'what the hey' let's give it another go! Car keys in hand I was ready to drop into my local Priceline when fate intervened and a package of these lipsticks landed at my door! It's serendipity I tell you! 

So here are my two cents on these lipstick swatches for you.
