The Monthly Edit | July 2016


So one month into the second half of the year and a few exciting things have happened for me this month. I have been doing some work experience at a big company and I have loved every minute of it! The people their have been so lovely with me and have helped me develop my skills a lot and also helped me with preparing for an interview, which I was successful in! So maybe in a few weeks, I might be a full time employee which is exciting.

Stila Aqua Glow Serum Concealer | Review


I have been on the quest for a great under eye concealer for a while now, and one I have decided to give a go is the recently released Stila Aqua Glow Serum Concealer. I did want to try the newer bareMinerals one but the lightest shade is too dark which seems to be a problem I face a lot now. There needs to be more shades added to certain ranges to cater for both ends of the skin colour spectrum, it's not just a pale gal problem. I am on the hunt for a concealer during the day, because while I love my MAC Pro Longwear, it is a bit full on for everyday wear for me personally.

My Mecca Beauty Loop Box Level 3 | July 2016


This trimester's box is a bit different to ones they have previously released before. Instead of having regular samples put in, usually they have the same products for every box in that level but products vary between the different levels. However this one, they feature products that their staff love. Their are 11 products selected for Level 3 but you will get a random selection of four in your box. I think it's great to have samples of products that people already love, especially people who know a lot and get to test out a lot of products all the time.

What I've Been Reading Recently #3


At the present moment, I'm in a bit of a reading slump and it means I am falling behind on my goal of 25 books to read for the Goodreads Reading Challenge. But about a month ago, I was on a roll and read a few books back to back. I borrowed a few books off my Aunt yesterday, who is an avid reader, and hopefully they can get me back into the reading mood.

July Playlist | 2016


The most prominent part of my month of music was my rediscovery of my love for John Newman. I loved his first album Tribute but I don't know why but I never got around to listening to his follow up, Revolve. However the other week, he released his new single Ole`, which is written by Calvin Harris and is "supposedly" about the whole HiddleSwift situation. At first I wasn't to keen on it because it sounded different to his previous stuff, but after a few listens I am totally addicted! So I've been listening to his second album on repeat and it's amazing stuff, his voice is amzing and makes me weak at the knees!

Pinterest Love | Dream Apartment

Pinterest is like a black hole, once you get in, there is no way out as you scroll through the never ending feed. There are some nights where I get on Pinterest for what feels like 10 minutes and I look at the time and it's about an hour later, my bad. I love how I can have an online mood board for all my ideas and inspiration, especially for stuff that is really far forward in the future, like having my own apartment.

What's On My Bedside Table


The best feeling after a long day, especially in winter is to curl up in bed with a snugly doona and just have a few minutes to relax before you hit the hay. I am not one of those people who can hop straight into bed, lights out, then drift off to sleep. I have to be sitting in bed for a while and then I will start trying to fall asleep. I wish I could fall asleep quickly, but that only happens when I have jet lag. So here is what I keep beside my bed to ensure I get a healthy dose of beauty sleep.

The Tales of a False Lash Newbie + Helpful Tips


False lashes have always scared me. Back in the day when I did dancing, I remember the mums sticking these on my eyelids, and having the feeling that there were weights on my eyes through they day and I had blinkers on. The next experience with these came when I had my makeup done for my recital last year, and I loved the way they looked. So since then, I've been trying to wear them more often and practice my application of them.

Empties #10



We made it to empties number 10, yay! I feel like it's been only a few weeks since I did the last one but I seem to have accumulated a lot in a short space of time. As usual you get to peek into my trash and see what I've finished, and what my thoughts are, positive or negative.
