V-DAY LUST LIST

Happy Valentines day lovers!
If there’s one thing I’ve learnt about this very commercialised day, it’s that it’s no use for us single ladies to be resentful; I mean, why waste our energy on that when we can just treat ourselves to the things we really love, like a bit of Dolce and Valentino? (Especially Valentino because the name is just really suited to the cause)
This year though, I’ve gone the step further and actually got myself a hot date.
Yep, that’s right. This V-day I’ll be rolling in gifts and enjoying a nice meal with someone I love.
I mean, not romantically though.
Valentine’s day is a day to celebrate love, and although traditionally people celebrate courtly love, that doesn’t mean you can’t show your love for your family or friends, right?
So this year, my valentine is my niece. Throughout our whole lives we’ve lived so far away from each other, and once every year or so, one of us would make the trip interstate to see each other, and during those short few days, we’d have to re-connect and get to know each other again. Now, she has finally moved to Melbourne and we’re getting to know each other properly; she’s like my fourth sister and I love her.
So, if you’re like me and don’t normally give two shits about Valentine’s Day, maybe this year you should just embrace the day and show the people that you love how you feel.
Then again, though, there’s no shame in revelling in the material things you love too, so feel free to tick something off of my LUST LIST

This month’s beauty must have!

This month's beauty must have!

I literally just spent the best $15 of my life. I can’t even begin to describe the joy that this incredibly thin little brush gave me!

A few months ago I purchased the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eye Liner and was so disappointed that the brush that it came with just didn’t work. It was too flimsy and had no precision what.so.ever.

Due to this, I gave up on the idea of gel eyeliner all together. Instead I kept on using my Sephora Collection Long Lasting Eyeliner which is a fantastic product, but I did want to venture out and try a gel.

I looked into buying an Artiste Flat Liner Brush or their Angled Liner Brush. I also considered the Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush, but when I took a look at the brushes, I noticed that with a little pressure, the lines would be really think, as the bristles of the brushes widened.

That’s when I discovered the silicone tip brush.

Once I purchased, tried and tested the brush, It left me speechless. It was as if I suddenly became an eyeliner goddess. With a small dabble in the gel pot, and a quick, easy stroke, my eyeliner was flawless. I couldn’t believe it!

If you’re having trouble getting the perfect gel eyeliner look because of your tools, look no further than the Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush!

christmas wishlist

Dear Mum (or Santa, you choose who you want to be): 

For Christmas this year I would like:

  1. Boyfriend Jeans
  2. Black leather jacket
  3. Denim jacket
  4. Black Skort (Zara)
  5. White Skort (Zara)
  6. Platforms (Windsor Smith)
  7. Nude patent heels
  8. Black Fedora
  9. Sunglasses (as similar as possible to the style in the photo)
  10. M.A.C Cosmetics Lipstick (Colour: Pure Zen)

Don’t think that I am expecting to get all ten items. This is just something to choose from. Happy Shopping Mummy! 😉 xxxx

I am only joking, my dear readers!… I am not that selfish, materialistic or acquisitive!

Plus, Christmas is about much, much more. If you are not a religious person, Christmas is a time to spend with family, friends and people who you hold near and dear. I love having my (extremely large) family come together. It is the one time throughout the year that every single member of the family is together. It is a season of happiness, forgiveness and gratefulness… A time to reminisce in the past and make memories to speak about in the future.
