December is a time for lots of baking! I love baking, especially baking for people during the christmas season. I made these spiced christmas cookies today and they are super EASY to make!

DECEMBER REDS


HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

One of my favourite things about holiday season is seeing all of the christmas decorations in stores and baking gingerbread cookies! December is the time when people start wearing matching red lipsticks and nail combo during the christmas season! Red is very much in season and nothing beats a great, classic red creme for nails during the holidays. But at times, I like to switch it up by adding a little shimmer and sparkle. Here are some of my favourite red and festive products that I enjoy wearing this season. 

+ Tanya Burr Lip Gloss - Vampire Kiss
+ Lime Crime Velvetine Matte Liquid Lipsticks - Suedeberry
+ CHANEL Rouge Coco - 19 Gabrielle
+ Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charm - So Marilyn 
+ Tanya Burr Nail Polish - Mischief Managed
+ Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Polish - Anthurium 
+ Natio Nail Polish - Ruby 
+ Marc Jacobs Nail Polish  -  172 Rita 


ALSO, over the weekend I went to a Ed Sheeran concert in Brisbane at the Suncorp Stadium, so I've made a video! Ed Sheeran was amazing, he is so talented and blessed. He sings AH-MAY-ZING LIVE!

MINI LIPSTICK CHARMS | CHARLOTTE TILBURY


Summer is just around the corner and so is Christmas!

 Charlotte Tilbury has bought out this year again for christmas, the set of three mini lipsticks, which are so adorable and is the perfect stocking filler. It's small enough you could tote around the whole set in your bag (yay)! The set includes three K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks in the shades; So Marilyn, Penelope Pink and Bitch Perfect. The lipsticks are quite, tiny.. like really, really tiny! I was a bit stunned when I first saw them, due to how expensive they were. But the lipsticks sets are perfect, if you never tried any Charlotte Tilbury lip products before. The formula of the lipstick are amazing and also are creamy and pigmented.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation


Happy November! 

Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favourite make up brands, and the magic foundation took around five years to make, making it to be one of my favourite all time foundations! The magic foundation is a full coverage, demi-matte, long lasting foundation. It covers up any acne, scarring, redness and discolouration - yay! 
I love Charlotte Tilbury products, even though it's a bit over priced, its worth it. I purchased the foundation from net-a-porter, my all time favourite website with super quick delivery and gorgeous packaging!

August Favourites


Hello lovelies, 

Spring is just around the corner in Australia, and the weather is getting warmer which makes me super excited. I'm looking forward to the summer months especially going to the beach and soaking up the sun and getting sand between my toes and getting ice creams!  

I thought I would share my most used and favourite products in August! 

BEAUTY 

+ Hourglass Ambient - Lighting bronzer in "Luminous Bronze Light"- Im a big fan of Hourglass blushes and powders. The bronzer is soft and blend-able and is beautiful and luminous on the skin.

+ Si Giorgio Armani perfume - This is my all time favourite perfume scent, it is a chypre scent which is a contrast between a fresh citrus and woody musky smell. Si perfume is long lasting and I definitely recommend to invest in this perfume even though its quite expensive, its worth it. 

+ Hourglass Ambient - Lighting Palette in "Dim Light | Incandescent Light | Radiant Light" - I love everything about this palette. Its easy to dip a fluffy brush into and apply to the face! Its perfect for travelling and I mostly use Dim Light and Incandescent Light shades for my face. 

Mac eyeshadow in "Expensive Pink"- Is a beautiful peach gold duo chrome eyeshadow. Its stays on all day definitely great for going out at night and I love how it makes my hazel green eyes stand out. 

+ Mac eyeshadow in "Phloof!"- Is a creamy off white with a bit of pink undertone and a frost finish eyeshadow. Love using this eyeshadow everyday, I'm a big fan of shimmy pink and sliver eyeshadows!

+ Mac Satin Lipstick in "Faux"- is my favourite lipstick ever. It is a great everyday nude lipstick that has mauve undertones hidden - its a great Kylie Jenner inspired lip. 

+ Zoeva brush in"126/Luxe Cheek Finish"- An amazing brush for apply any blushes on your face and  its definitely worth getting it. The brush is really soft and gentle on the skin. 

Soap & Glory Smoothie Oat, Sugar & Shea Breakfast Scrub -The scrub is a light brown sugar grain texture paste and it has an amazing scent and it makes me want to eat it, everytime I use it. 


OTHER
+ Casetify iPhone 6 Case  in "Anemones + Roses" - Got this case on Tuesday and I'm in love! Its my second phone case, because my first one, was a transparent clear hardshell case from Apple which got damage from me always dropping it. It was time for a change and Casetify has beautiful phone cases which I definitely recommend if your looking for a new one!
