So the mailman sometimes doesn’t like to cooperate with my expected deliveries. Over the buildup to the Christmas break, I have had some items delayed, lost or still in transit. Sadly this happened to my expected package from Scout Cosmetics where I had to create a holiday makeup look for you lovely ladies which would have been perfect for Chrissy lunch.
How many of us ladies watch beauty or hair tutorials whilst getting ready for a night out? I absolutely love a tutorial but hate that I have to bend my neck to watch, or hold my phone whilst doing my face with one hand – you’re set for a epic fail on that winged eyeliner, trust me!
A woman can never have too many lipsticks, right? Well, unless you’re me. I have so many amazing lippies that have been sent to me. #guilty #beautybloggerproblems
Just ask anyone in my office. On Fridays I rock up to work looking like I’ve swallowed an oompa loompa!
I just love fake tan and I won’t go to an event, or risk showing my legs, without one.
I recently attended the launch of Charles + Lee and was thrilled with their skincare offering for men. From the packaging and the price point, to their latest accomplishment (being stocked in Myer #roundofapplause) I just had to share some of the goodies available in their range.
It’s December, and I know you’re being bombarded with #blogmas content and gift guides left, right, and center. But I promise it’ll all be over soon and before you know it we’ll be working on all that Easter content. (Yay, to bunny season!) I wasn’t going to do a gift guide for the above reason, seeing as every blogger is doing it. Saying that – these pics were too gorgeous not to share.
Can you believe we have finally hit Summer ladies? It’s time to lighten our hair, tan our skin and enjoy an amazing Australian Summer!
I am excited to be part of the Scout cosmetics VIP club. I decided to take part in this purely to push my make-up skills (as they’re a little boring), work with a great company and try out some amazing new products to share with you all.
When Zerin asked if I could help her with some skincare reviews, I jumped at the chance. Since I reached the ripe old age of 26, skincare has been on my mind almost as often as Connoisseur White Chocolate and Raspberry ice cream – and that means A LOT.
It wasn’t until I looked back at older photos that I realised that my face is actually starting to do that thing you never think it will. Lines that would previously stretch themselves away are hangin’ around a lil bit too long for my liking, and basically I just look a bit crap all the time.
I was recently gifted a Evy Professional E-Curl. It’s been a while since I have used a hair curler as I have been curling my hair with my hair straighter. I thought I would put together a little guide on how to curl your hair and would love to see you all recreate my look. Okay, recreate the famous ‘Khloe K do’.
Jessica from @abrokegirlwithexpensivetaste and I recently collaborated with the very talented makeup artist, Emily. I came across her work on Facebook, and couldn’t wait to see if she would like to collaborate on a look for Halloween.
With the weather heating up and summer just around the corner, we could not be more ready to say goodbye to those freezing winter days. From gorgeous frocks, to frosé on the beach, summer has just about everything we can ask for. And to top it off this year’s summer festival line up is one of the best.
Although the international music acts are meant to be a festival’s main attraction, we can’t deny that our main focus is the festival looks that are on show. Festivalgoers go above and beyond to create the perfect look, and no look is perfect without the right makeup.
Whether you want to be a glittering goddess or an indie princess INGLOT Australia have your festival makeup look sorted!
I have always been a lover of fake tan. There is nothing sexy about white pasty legs – unless you’re an English rose! I personally tend to let my beauty regime go a little over winter as it’s just too damn cold to do anything. Anyone else guilty of this?
If I’m perfectly honest, this is a post I have been dreading writing. For those who follow me on social media, you’d have seen me expose my fat to the world. YEP! Over 2k of you have watched me suck my guts and thunder thighs up in hope of reduced fat.
If you haven’t had a chance to watch the video, check it via my Instagram here.
I was so overwhelmed by all the interest and I can’t say I blame you! We all want a quick fix, don’t we?
I am so excited and a little nervous to share this post with you all. I had the opportunity to try out Lipo Freeze at Smart Skin Clinics Coolaroo.
I have my own body demons like many. I have always hated my thighs. I have always been more bottom heavy. My thighs have made me cry. I don’t wear jeans because I feel like I look so big in them. I literally live in leggings and wear the occasional ‘jegging’ but still feel so self-conscious.
Yesterday I had my first ever express microdermabrasion at my local Laser Clinics Australia. I was really looking forward to this treatment as I have heard nothing but good things about it.
After being super jealous of all the gorgeous selfies being posted on my Instagram feed of ladies and gents applying the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Masks it was time for me to put this little pot of genius to the test!
I was kindly gifted the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Detoxifying + Brightening Charcoal Mask. I could not wait to apply this to my face. I simply used a foundation brush to basically paint my face. The texture was not as thick as I thought it would be and rather smooth and refreshing.
I was pretty excited when the lovely people at Blys pronounced ‘bliss’ contacted me to have a complimentary massage to feature on my blog.. how could any blogger say no to that? #theperkshey.
It has been around 5-6 years since I’ve shamelessly had my last massage. It’s not that I don’t enjoy a massage. I am always gifting friends and family members a pamper session, yet I won’t book myself one!
As always, when receiving blogger mail, the excitement is next level and I can’t wait to try my goodies and share them with you guys. Yep, I’ve been blogging for over a year, but I’m still like a kid at Christmas when my blogger mail arrives!
So, what did I get this time?
My hair is shocking. Seriously, it just has no life! I wash it once a week, I go to the gym, and generally it looks like a mop on the daily. Sigh. Everyone seems to be obsessed with dry shampoo. I have tried a few but haven’t really added it to my beauty routine. Until now.
When getting my makeup done professionally, I never let the make up artist colour my eyebrows in.
I have only recently started getting my eyebrows tinted lighter.
I literally do my makeup and don’t touch my eyebrows, except the occasional little bit hair spray or gel, if I have any.
OMG! I am human. Who doesn’t have a few little whiskers on their upper lip?! I am sure there are a few – #envy, but not many!
Being half Turkish I have a little hair growth, which I am taking care of with laser. Unfortunately laser on my upper lip has been frustrating, as it’s not taking full effect like it is on the rest of my body. Annoying, I know.
So, I am one of those people who doesn’t invest in expensive, high-end hair products. I use ‘supermarket bands’ – don’t judge me! I only really buy products when I am getting my hair done. After paying $400 for foils, what’s another $70, right?! So I get sucked in, buy good hair products, promise myself I’ll stick to it, and then don’t! I am sure I am not alone, ladies!
I am pretty sure every household has a Blistex lying around somewhere. Whether it’s a lip balm or pot, I am sure there’s one in your bathroom, handbag or office drawer.
Blistex has always been a favourite in our household. From the girls’ handbags to the men’s pockets, it’s our winter savior.
When you love a glass – okay, a bottle! – of red wine, and have multiple cups of coffee a day, your teeth tend to get a lovely yellow glow, right? Who’s with me?
I have had zoom whitening, chair whitening… I am a little obsessed with white teeth. What annoys me is spending so much on my teeth and the result not lasting.
A few years back I had my first Arbonne experience. A friend of mine at the time recommended the brand to me, so I could explore what skincare worked for me, and also trial a foundation.
The consultant basically gave me a week’s sample of the range to try, but barely explained anything about the products or how they would work for my skin. They were messaging me everyday trying to get a sale, but to be honest I was quite put off by the entire experience.
What did I think of the skincare then? In 5-7 days you can’t really tell how a product is on your skin. I prefer to give skincare products around 4 weeks to really get a feel for the product.
That said, I have heard great things about the company, so I think we just got off on the wrong foot.
If you follow me on Snapchat (feel free, it’s insincerely.her) you will know that I get a lot of ‘’blogger mail’’. A few weeks ago I received a beautiful package from Emballage (apologies again about the delay, ladies!) This was the most beautiful delivery I have ever received.
What came was a beautiful white box that had my initials and a tassel as the tag, along with a note in a gorgeous envelope. From the box to the ribbon to the personal note, there was only one word to describe my box: luxurious.
So excited to tell you all what was inside!
Firstly, this blog post is dedicated to my older brother Oz. Just recently I tried to explain to him what a blog is. Massive fail. He just looked at me like a stunned mullet and said ‘why would anyone send you anything?’- little does he know his sister is a Z list socialite hehe.
Jokes aside, as his birthday was coming up I always buy him Adidas clothing or a bottle of JOOP.
Buying gifts is so hard so I’d rather buy him one of those two, as it’s what he likes. No birthday surprise from this sister.
I have always had an item of makeup from Rimmel London in my makeup case since I was in my teens. I love the mascaras and nail polishes from the collection and, let’s be real who doesn’t want to try and look like the-the effortless Kate Moss and get the ‘London look’ – Cliche I know, but had to use the line.
For the makeup amateur like myself (I should give myself a little credit. I did do a cert in hair and makeup in year 11) #diplomabitches
From Mecca to Sephora, to all the amazing beauty counters we have in Australia we truly are the lucky country when it comes to makeup – we’re spoilt for choice.
What frustrates me, though. is going into a makeup store, wanting my favourite Better That Sex mascara or a foundation sample, and being left waiting ages to get served. Worse than that, sometimes I am trying to pick something off the shelves with an army of women in front of me not letting me through. Who can relate?
I was asked if I would like to get brighter skin in just two weeks… UMM yes please! Especially during winter, ladies.
In the mornings I am freezing, so I am guilty of putting the heater on high all the way to work or having really hot showers. My last post said I would try and stop this bad habit, but some can’t be broken.
My skin has been feeling quite dry and I look drawn out, especially on those make up free days. My eye bags are horrid, so I was looking forward to this little skin challenge.
