My Mecca Beauty Loop Box Level 2 - January 2017


Definitely one thing that brightens up my day is getting an email from Mecca saying you can go and collect your Beauty Loop Box. I just love picking up my box of samples, which I did this week on one of my lunch breaks at work and excitedly opened it in the staff room. This time around I am a level 2 instead of a 3, but that is a good thing because it means I'm spending less!  Here's a peak at what was inside my box this quarter.

My Tips for Solo Travel


Last year after finishing university, I took the plunge and flew to Europe for a two month solo trip. I have always wanted to travel by myself but never thought I would be able to do it or afford it. But after 4 years of saving with my part time retail job, I managed to save enough for a two month break. I had always wanted to go away by myself, but just before the trip I got cold feet an almost cancelled. But I kept telling myself that I could do it and I did! So for anyone that is considering solo travel, here are some tips for you to enjoy your trip and feel safe, it will honestly be the best thing yu ever do for yourself!

My Top 5 Colourpop Products


About 2 or 3 years ago, Colourpop took the beauty by storm with their eyeshadows and lippie stix. At first, I wasn't really interested but as I started to see them used in more and more tutorials I thought I would give them a red hot go. 3 orders later, I am just a little bit addicted. So if you've never ordered off Colourpop before or your looking for some new things to try, here are my 5 favourite Colourpop products.

Starting And Growing Your Record Collection



Ever since I was little, I have always been intrigued by records. The way you put the needle on and the sound came out of nowhere, just like magic! I always loved raiding my parents record collection, from the questionable Englebert Humperdinck to Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights. So a few years ago, I decided to start my own collection which I would play on the old record player in the living room. That broke however a year and a half ago, halting my collecting. But this Christmas, my wish came true, receiving a shiny new record player for my room and a whole bunch of new records to go with it. I'm going to talk about how to go about collecting records if your just starting out or immersed in the record community already.

My Top 5 NARS Products


If I was asked what would be my favourite high end brand was, I think my answer would be NARS. I find that I like a lot of different products from them, ranging from their bases to lipsticks. The quality is amazing in the majority of their products and I love the packaging, but sometimes the matte black can get quite dirty. So I've compiled my 5 favourite NARS products that I recommend anyone to try!

My Goals for 2017

Looking like a marshmallow in Belin

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with New Year's Resolutions. On one hand, everyone does them and only 25% of people really stick to them. But one the other hand, they are a great way to help shape the year ahead and to give you bench marks to tick off when you achieve them. Some of my goals aren't to specific but are more things to be conscious of in the year ahead.

Filling Up My MAC Palette


Since I first discovered the beauty world, I have been lusting after a MAC palette that I created my self. So when I finally bit the bullet a year ago, I thought it would be a sinch to full it all up. But trying to find the perfect combination of 15 colours has been a struggle and a half.
