My skin has been breaking out like crazy lately, especially around my mouth and chin (hormones) so I thought it would be a good chance to chat with you about my favourite five products to use when my skin just isn't behaving itself!
I've recently signed up for a new Australian subscription box that was recommended to me by some fellow beauty lovers. The Parcel is Marie Claire's Luxury Beauty Box that is delivered four times a year, and includes a box of deluxe sample sized or full-sized beauty products. I chose a seasonal subscription for $25 per box. It's more expensive than many monthly subscriptions such as Bellabox or Lust Have it, but personally I'd rather receive a box less often if it is filled with more high end items or full-sized products. In my experience, the monthly subscription boxes I've tried in the past were very disappointing and contained very small sample sizes or foil packets and were manly focused on hair and skincare rather than makeup items.
If you're interested to know what was in my box this month, as well as my first impressions of these items, keep reading!
Hi Beauties! Happy Friday and welcome back to a series on the blog which I haven't done in a while. This series is called Frugal Fridays where I highlight a product that I think is great quality but also quite affordable as well! Today is all about e.l.f. Studio Blushes so if you'd like to hear more about my favourites and check out some swatches, then keep reading!

Happy Easter Beauties! I hope you're all enjoying a well-deserved day off.

Someone obviously was listening to my subconscious, because this month I had the pleasure of being invited to attend Obsession 2015 which is Brisbane's first beauty blogger exclusive event, organised by Kate from The Minted Beauty and Dani from Kaboom Cosmetics, both with amazing blogs themselves. Clearly they understood that there was a need for some sort of event in Brisbane where all these passionate beauty bloggers could get together and share a fun day of networking with brands and learning from the best in the industry.
If you've been wondering about the new NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and if it's worth trying, then this post is for you! This has been one of my most highly requested blog posts, and given that this foundation has been consistently talked about for the past month or so, I thought it would be worth writing to anyone who hasn't tried this product yet! If you want to know more, keep reading!
So with my wedding not too far away, I really need to start going into a super saving mode! In order to motivate myself to do this, I've done one last splurge at my two favourite makeup spots, MAC & Mecca Maxima. These are all items that I have been eager to get my hands on. This will (hopefully) be one of my last big hauls besides any PR samples I may receive or products from The Parcel which I am registered to receive quarterly. Also, I think some drugstore products here or there are okay to help ease me into the saving process! Keep reading if you'd like to hear about what I picked up recently.
I surprisingly re-discovered a lot of products I already owned for the month of February with a few new faves thrown in the mix. If you'd like to know what products I've been loving, keep reading - because who doesn't love reading about monthly faves?
If any of you are already following me on Instagram, you're probably already sick of hearing about how much I love the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation ($60.50 USD). Over the past 6 months, it has definitely become one of my Holy Grail foundations and a must-have item in my beauty wardrobe. Some of you have asked me to share exactly why I love it so much and show you what it looks like on me, so if you're interested to hear more - keep reading!
