The Monthly Edit | June 2016


At the beginning of this month, I said that I would be having a spending ban on makeup. And I am happy to announce that I made it through! YAS! Even though I did a haul this month, all the makeup was paid for in May so it doesn't count. Sneaky? Yes. But still in May!

What I've Been Reading Recently #2


As I've talked about before, I've embarked on a reading challenge this year to read 25 books. I've been tracking my progress on Goodreads, you can follow me here, and I'm right on track! The year started off slowly but over the last 2 months I've been reading a lot more and it makes me feel really good!

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette | Review


Not gonna lie, I ate that chocolate bar straight after taking the photo. But this post isn't about my love affair with chocolate, but it's pretty damn close. The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette ($72) not only looks like a chocolate bar but smells like one too. This had been on my want list for a very long time so after receiving some vouchers for my birthday, I finally picked it up.

A US Beauty Haul With Shop and Box


So a few days before I embarked on my spending ban for the month of June, I made a sneaky order on Shop and Box with a friend. Shop and Box are a shopping service where you create a wishlist of things you want from a certain country, mine was for the US, and then you get paired with a shopper from that country and they buy all your items and co-ordinate the shipping. You do have to pay them a service fee but it is definitely worth it and the people are always super helpful and makes everything easy to understand. This is the second time I have made an order through them, you can check out my first order and experience here.

June Playlist | 2016


This month in music has been all about discovering and falling in love again with Adele. I love her new single "Send My Love", and I've been listening to her whole new album and everything else. I watched her show she did with Graham Norton and she seems like the most down to earth person and she is absolutely hilarious! I would love to be friends with her! And her voice! UGH! Also, I was talking to some friends about our favourite Justin Timberlake songs the other day and I mention "Signs", which is technically a Snoop Dog song, but how could anyone forget this little gem! Such a good song to dance around your room to!

What have you been listening to this month?

Pinterest Love | Style & Shoes

Lately I've been on a pinning spree. I feel like there are some aspects of my life and myself that I think need a bit of change, not because they aren't great but just be a bit different and do different things. And one of them is my wardrobe. I feel like everything is more or less the same, and I want to get some pieces that I know I will love and I'm willing to pay a bit more for something than I can keep for a long time.

The Parcel By Marie Claire | The Winter Edit 2016



I am so bad when it comes to keeping track of things. I had no idea when this was arriving so when the post man showed up with this in his hands, it was a nice surprise. However I was anxious to see what was inside because I was quite disappointed with the last one I got, which you can read about here. But I think they have listened to what people have said about the last one, and this season's box is an improvement on the last.

Rose Gold Smokey Eye With MAC's Tan Pigment


I have always been very afraid of using pigments because a) they seem messy, and b) my eyeshadow game is not very strong. But I told myself, I won't get any better if I don't keep trying new things and practicing new techniques. I took this as a sign to go shopping and I ended up getting the MAC Pigment in Tan. I thought this would be a good colour to start with because it's neutral and I could wear it day or night to any occasion.

My Evening Pamper Essentials



There is nothing better than coming home from a long day at work and treating yourself to some me time, #treatyoself. It just relaxes you and preps you for a great night of beauty sleep.  So pop on some Netflix, grab a book, or pop on a Spotify playlist and get ready to be relaxed.
