My NEW HOLY GRAIL Mascara

Eye of Horus Goddess Mascara Amazing Before/After

Yo class (haha I need some more ways to say hello! I promise I don’t greet my real class that way).

You guys… I’ve done it. I’ve found my favourite mascara.

My mascara-hunt has been through its ups and downs and I’ve thought I’ve found my holy grail probably about 4 times. BUT I PROMISE YOU THIS IS IT.

I’ve never had a mascara where I’ve felt comfortable enough to post a close-up before/after eye picture of it’s use. Until now.

Introducing the Eye of Horus Goddess Black Mascara. ($36.66NZD).

This stuff is ridonkulous. I’ve heard people talking about it here and there over the past few years but I hate paying lots for mascara because it’s SO hit and miss. That, and mascara runs out fairly fast as well so it can get costly constantly replacing them every few months.

This little baby will be where my fortnightly pay check is going as not only do I need to repurchase it, but I also need a few back-ups (of course).

Liquid Lip Paints That Genuinely Last ALL DAY! | Mellow Cosmetics

Mellow Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lip Paint Swatches Review

Bonjour class,

Okay I need a big fat DISCLAIMER right here. I am well aware that every man and his dog are talking about Mellow Cosmetics right now. (If you haven’t heard then you can ignore this message). Yes, they very well may be getting paid for it too. Did I get sent these products for free? Yes. Did I get paid to talk about these products? No. Would I repurchase these products with my own money? YES. I think it would be pretty fair to say any raving done by myself or anyone else (paid or unpaid) is totally just and truthful. I would not be going this crazy over nothing. I pinky swear!

In fact I am going to repurchase some of the shades I didn’t get sent because SPOILER ALERT these Lip Paints are a game changer. I’m talkin’ some Colourpop-esque hype is gonna happen around here very soon.

Super Lush Cosmetics Boxing Day Haul

Photo 3-01-16, 9 50 35 AM

Good morning class,

Well, 2015 was the year of the Lush obsession… anyone else? There’s literally nothing better than a Lush bath after a long, hard day of teaching 6 year olds. I became mildly obsessed with having a bath each week featuring a Lush goodie (like a bath bomb, bubble bar or some FUN!) since becoming a bath owner earlier in 2015. It had been a good 5-6 years since I had lived in a house with a bath before then. The last bath-house was my beloved parents home – I wish I still lived there… anyone else?

Need to Get Your Legs in Shape for Summer? | Manuka Doctor to the Rescue!

Manuka Doctor Anti-Cellulite Bronzing Gel Shaaanxo

Good morning class,

Today I’m going to chat about one of my favourite beauty products for summer. My #1 “Summer Essential” if you will. Fake tan.

If you are not blessed with a delicious olive skin tone, or are one of those unfortunate people (like me) whose skin can be one of two colours; pink or white – then you’re probably in the market for a decent self tan.

I think self tanner is a fantastic invention and the way it’s been perfected over the years is incredible to look back on. Let’s face it, not everyone can pull off the deathly pale skin look. For some reason, I think my legs look ten times better with a bit of tan on them, like the tan acts as my rose-coloured glasses or something. Plus, anything to avoid sunburn and skin cancer gets a big fat tick in my book! I’ve never been much of a sunbather anyway…

Save or Splurge? | Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ♥

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Moonstone

Good morning class,

Today I thought I’d have a chat about the #1 lusted after highlighter of the season. The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed. I got the shade Moonstone because I thought that would best suit my skin tone. From what I have read about the shades I think I was right. I know Champagne Pop went a bit nuts because it’s a collaboration with Jaclyn Hill but I don’t think it would have worked for me.

The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (BSSP I’m going to call it from now on so I don’t have to type all of that out each time) is rather pricey. At around $46 NZ from RY.com.au it’s not something you’d buy impulsively. So I thought I’d be the test dummy today (well, that’s what I told my partner) and let you know if YOU should buy it! Sounds good? Okay let’s go.

Haul | Uhhh, So No-one Helped Me… and I Still Can’t Stop Shopping!

I cant stop buying makeup haul Help Me

Good morning class,

This is the worst time of the year for shopping, because you’re supposed to be shopping for other people for Christmas but there’s all these sales and good stuff and I don’t know about you, but I end up buying just as much for myself as I do for my family and friends… (and I go CRAZY shopping for family and friends at Christmas!).

This haul has been collected over the past month (and I apologize I haven’t made a blog post for a month but I’ve been busy applying for a job and having a friend stay). I was going to make a few posts about individual items I’ve got in this haul however I figured I’d haul it first and the other posts will be coming soon!

If you desperately want to see a post about an individual item from this haul then please let me know.

Haul | Someone Help Me, I Can’t Stop Buying Makeup! ♥

Makeup haul review Urban Decay Stila Anastasia

Good morning class,

It is true. My savings account hates me, my boyfriend hates me, my mind is telling me no, but my body is telling me yes. House prices are going up, up, up and all I want to do is shop, shop, shop!

Here’s another (of many) makeup haul post. I really hope you guys like reading about these (please tell me if you don’t!) because I enjoy reading/watching them so that’s why I keep doing them! I think it’s my curious side coming through, I love to see what other people buy!

This haul contains bits and bobs from all over the show. I didn’t go crazy in one place, I sort of just saw various sales and deals and needed to replenish some nearly-finished items, and here we are.

Haul | Clothing (Coco+Dawn, Farmers)

Coco+Dawn Jorge Dress Fashion Haul

Good morning class,

Today I wanted to chat about some gorgeous clothing items I’ve received lately. It’s taken me awhile to get this post together because the lighting is SO bad for pictures. I haven’t even been able to get any decent pics of these on. So I apologize for that.

I absolutely love seeing the different clothing items people choose to wear. It’s so interesting and I love the look of fashion even though I’m not very fashionable! It’s hard to be fashionable when you work with kids all day.
