Current Beauty Favourites

Wednesday, 27 July 2016


I have really slacked off on the favourites posts this year: probably because I don't often switch my beauty routines up each month and, therefore, don't have new products to talk about every month. Instead of the regular instalments, I've decided to just show you what I've been using and loving most recently!

Weekly Wrap-Up | twenty

Sunday, 24 July 2016


What a busy week it has been! I feel like I've gotten back into the habit of thinking up blog post ideas and keeping things new and moving forward here. I'm really enjoying it and I hope you are, too! My ears are always open to your feedback or suggestions so please share if you've got something to share.

Project Pan Roulette | Update Six | Video

Saturday, 23 July 2016


In which I show you the progress I've made on my Project Pan Roulette items and then drop a pretty major shake up! I've been talking a lot over the past few months about growing bored and complacent with my projects and losing focus. For my Project Use It Up, I decided to set higher goals and that helped push me to achieve more each month. For this project, I may have jumped into the deep end and made a bit of a mistake! But only time will tell how well I cope with the added pressure. Thanks for watching!

Finish 13 by Halloween Roulette | Update One | Video

Thursday, 21 July 2016


In which I show you the products I've made progress on, finished, and added to my Finish 13 by Halloween Roulette Project Pan! I have picked some seriously difficult products for this project but I think I'm rising to the challenge and making slow but steady dips in all of them! Please let me know if you are participating in this challenge so I can come and support you!

Brand Overview | Sukin | + Giveaway

Wednesday, 20 July 2016


Earlier this week I talked about my current interest in drugstore skincare brands and products which spurred me on to do a brand overview of a popular Australian drugstore brand, Sukin. If you're interested in affordable, local, natural beauty products, then this the brand for you but let's get a little more in-depth.

Trying Drugstore Skincare

Monday, 18 July 2016


Recently I've been turning my attention to drugstore brands and products because I began to feel a bit disconnected from the more affordable side of the beauty world. The store I work in had a sale on some skincare brands and I decided to take advantage to try products I haven't ever used before.

Weekly Wrap-Up | nineteen

Sunday, 17 July 2016


Another winter week here in Sydney sees us freezing our bums off! We're well and truly into the cold season, now, and I'm in the thick of some projects, too. I've turned a lot of my interest into different aspects of my beauty collection in an attempt to keep it fresh so let me know how it's working!

Would You Rather Tag | Project Pan Edition | Video

Saturday, 16 July 2016


In which I answer the questions in the Would You Rather Tag: Project Pan Edition. It's pretty cool listening to everyone else's answers and seeing the variation in how we all approach project panning across the community. My video is a bit late to the party but hopefully you still enjoy it! Thanks for watching!

Serum Revolution

Wednesday, 13 July 2016


Serums have always had a pretty rocky place in my skincare routine seeing as I only really used them if one happened into my collection. It wasn't until recently when I was reading Sally Hughes's Pretty Honest that I decided to re-examine how serums could work for my skin.

Project Use It Up 2016 | June Update & July Goals | Video

Monday, 11 July 2016


In which I show you the progress I made on my June goals and the new goals I've set for myself for July. I'm enjoying mixing it up a bit more each month and setting harder and harder goals to keep myself interested and invested in this project. Unlike regular project pans, I find Project Use It Up really difficult to stay motivated to complete each month. But we're still trucking so thanks for watching!

Saturday, 9 July 2016


In which I show you the progress I've made on my Pan that Palette challenge palette and the other palettes I use in conjunction with it. I'm pretty happy with the progress I'm making at the moment and I hope to have a lot more pan to show you in two month's time! Thanks for watching!

Eyeshadow Palette Collection | Video

Wednesday, 6 July 2016


In which I show you all of my eyeshadow palettes and tell you a bit about how I like them and whether I'd recommend them to you. Apologies that this video got cut short! I did manage to fit all of my palettes in before my battery died, luckily, so you only missed an outro. Let me know if you have any of these palettes or if there are any you would recommend. I adore eyeshadow and have quite a list of palettes that I'd like to pick up in the future. Thanks for watching!

Weekly Wrap-Up | eighteen

Sunday, 3 July 2016


The year is officially half over! Now we enter the downhill slope on all postponed new year's resolutions and goals. I know I'm definitely going to be kicking it into full gear to reach all of my beauty collection goals by the end of the year.

Acidic Skincare

Saturday, 2 July 2016


Acids sound absolutely terrifying in absolutely all contexts but recently I have really been enjoying incorporating acids into my skincare routine. Whether they're for exfoliating, brightening, lifting, I'm trying them all and these two have stood out to me the most this far.
