This is a new series on my channel where I go through all the products I hauled earlier this year and let you know what I think of them after a few months of use! I've seen this format on several channels recently and thought I would try my hand at it but please feel free to give me tips for how I could improve or what you would like to see in future videos.

My 6 Month Beauty Spending Ban Finale

Sunday, 23 August 2015


Over the past year I've gone through quite a journey in my relationship with my makeup collection. Not to sound too cliche but I've spent a lot of time examining and questioning the way I think about and relate to makeup. I think I've come upon a pleasant place so far and I wanted to share that experience with you in a quick post.

Thursday, 20 August 2015


My first official Project Pan has ended and I think I was rather successful! Over the past six months, you would have noticed by growing interest in spending bans and project pans and my foray into the field. I decided back in April to do a project pan in conjunction with a spending ban from June 1st to August 18th. That time has now passed and these are my results!

Do you ever go onto foreign websites and build a basket of stuff that you would buy if they did ship to your country? No? Okay, well I definitely do and this time it was with Space.NK. Little did I know, Space.NK does ship to Australia! They recently introduced Borderfree shipping which is just knocking down the barriers between me and European skincare.

Repurposing Tough as Taupe

Sunday, 9 August 2015


As you can probably see from the photo, I've been neglecting my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe. I purchased it approximately three years ago and it has dried up quite a bit since then but, since I really don't like wasting product, I've kept it hiding out in my collection, going unused. That is, until recently.

After you've been growing your beauty collection for a while, you have a really good idea of what types of products you prefer to use over others. Makeup is incredibly personal, though, so what works for you may not work at all for someone else. After taking a good, long look at my own beauty collection, these are the conclusions I've come to.

I've been working on my Project Pan products for two months now and this is an update to show you all of my progress. I completely forgot to mention my OPI Nail Polishes but I will provide an update in my finale on August 18th!
