DIY Smoothie Bowl Recipe

The concept of Smoothie Bowls are blowing my mind. I mean, it's like a fruit soup that's both delicious and nutritious, not to mention you can decorate it however you want it which usually makes for a very aesthetically pleasing breakfast.

The most popular form of smoothie bowls I have come across so far is using Acai, (whether it's the frozen berry or a concentrated powder) which gives it a deliciously rich taste and gorgeous purple colour. However, there are also other forms of smoothie bowls that I've come across too... green, yellow and even some pink!

Winter Weekend Lookbook

A typical weekend for me is either chilling out and relaxing with family or heading out and scouting new places to find good food alongside great company. On this particular weekend, I ended up having lunch with a friend in an old train carriage turned restaurant. Yes, you read that right. Easey's in Collingwood is what your childhood dreams are made of. With three floors of restaurant leading you all the way up to the dining carriage, which literally sits right on top of the building. The views are simply amazing and a perfect backdrop for a weekend lunch in Melbourne.

Barry M 'Satsuma' | #NOTD

It's been a dreary and cold start to the week here in Melbourne, (duh it's Winter Anjelique) but that hasn't dampened my spirit just yet! I thought it would be quite fitting of me to do the exact opposite of what's considered 'normal' and paint my nails a bright orange colour to lift my spirits this week.

PLUS SIZE Winter Fashion Haul | City Chic, Target, ASOS, Miss Shop

If you could describe your wardrobe right now, how would you do it? Mine would be quite bland and missing a lot of staple pieces. Hence why I thought it was time to do a little shopping for the coming Winter months and really hone in on the style I wanted to create with my wardrobe.  For the most part, I don't really like to spend a lot of time putting an outfit together, which is why the pieces I've chosen in this haul are really items that are interchangeable and easy to make yourself look put together.

Welcome to the fashion haul where I finally buy the things I actually need, including trench coats and enough skivvies I could basically form a children's singing group to rival The Wiggles.

Long time readers might remember my previous blog post of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara which I reviewed almost around this time last year. Well folks, hold onto your seats and get ready for Part II of the Better Than Sex review series, as Too Faced have released a waterproof formulation of their best-selling mascara!

Let me introduce you to my new Bae, the holiest grail of holy grail products...

Let me preface this by saying that I absolutely love waterproof mascaras as I find my lashes often have trouble holding a curl and also like to transfer to my eyelids (thanks to my oily skin) so I usually tend to opt for waterproof mascaras if I want something budge-proof.

I thought I loved the original mascara, but nothing could prepare me (not even in my wildest dreams) for the love I was about to experience with the new Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara. 

First of all, the curl this mascara gives your lashes is insane! The fact that I can use my eyelash curler once in the morning, comb this mascara through and have my lashes still reaching my eyebrows by the end of the day... Well, I think that's a fair feat!

Not to mention, the amount of volume and length it provides too- yeah, I think most will agree that this product could definitely come close to being Better Than Sex!


Have you had a chance to try either the original or waterproof formulations of the Better Than Sex Mascara? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Chic Everyday Makeup Tutorial

I'm no stranger to the occasional full face of makeup, (even if I'm just lounging around the house doing nothing) but sometimes I just really enjoy a nice and natural look, something that enhances my features but also doesn't make me look like a completely different person.

I have been absolutely loving this more 'minimal' makeup for everyday wear, it's really quite brightening and the glowing base is the perfect remedy for dull and dry Winter skin.

Think Parisian, Winter Chic!

My Girl // Quay Australia

I have something to admit to you.

I am absolutely hopeless when it comes to sunglasses! My previous experiences include either losing, sitting on, or forgetting them somewhere.

Like I said, hopeless.

So you can probably imagine my hesitation when I saw these gorgeous frames while I was browsing the ASOS website one night, (read: every night) and I saw that they were marble. I mean, it was my dream sunglasses pair come to life and for me in that moment, it was a must buy.

Colourpop Liquid Lipstick Review

Colourpop are a cruelty free brand from the US and their product line includes eyeshadows, highlighters, lip pencils and liquid lipsticks. I've heard all round good reviews about most of their products, but it is their liquid lipsticks that I'm most interested in at the moment. If you remember my Colourpop Lipstick Swatch post from a few weeks ago, you will remember that I promised to bring you a post and video on my exact thoughts of the product and formula. Now that I've had over a month to test out these bad boys, I can finally bring you the results of my rigorous testing!

What I Eat In A Day #2 | Vegan, Plant-Based

Welcome back to the second installment of my What I Eat In A Day series, where I chronicle literally everything I eat on a particular day. I know it sounds weird, but I honestly love reading posts and watching videos like this to give me 'food-spiration' and ideas for my own meals. As you may remember from my last WIEIAD post, I have turned to a Vegan, Plant-Based diet and couldn't be loving it more! If you would like to see a post about my thoughts and the process behind the 'sudden' change, please let me know and I will do just that!
