INTRODUCING BOE PROFESSIONAL

When I first stumbled across BOE Cosmetics while wandering through the Big W makeup aisles, I nearly disregarded them due to their tiny $2 price tag. I have a pre-conceived idea that all cheap makeup wasn't worth my time and I based the quality of a product on it's price. I could not have been more wrong and BOE exemplifies this perfectly; amazing quality products at an affordable price. They are now venturing into an exciting new journey in the form of a professional range with the same ideal of quality for money. Among their new range is a selection of incredible face products that leave you with a flawless complexion and I'm going to talk you through them now.

AUSTRALIA'S FIRST FOREVER 21

When I opened up my invite to the Forever 21 media launch I was both shocked and incredibly excited. Until the invite I had no idea that a Forever 21 was even opening in Australia, let alone Brisbane. I get invited to my fair share of media events, even just those in the fashion realm, and this was one of the most exciting invitations I have ever received. It's about time we got one of the US's leading apparel stores.

GHD BIRD OF PARADISE STYLER

I am a huge fan of ghd stylers, they're some of the best on the market. With my origins in hairdressing, it's all we would ever use on our clients. Ghd have a way of always releasing fabulous new stylers that I just must have and "sunset" from the bird of paradise collection is definitely one I couldn't pass up. Matched with a complimenting heat proof mat, this makes for an unbeatable duo for frantic early mornings in a rush to work. Since the styler heats up so quickly (as you will find out when you read on) and you might be busy doing other things and forget about your straightener, the heat proof mat is a lifesaver.

PRIMPING WITH THE STARS - FROM LASHES TO LIPS

It includes six of Benefit's greatest hits encased in a pastel peach and seafoam green package. Each goodie have their own special little place and make up a fantastic kit that gives you the opportunity to try out a great selection of products. The sizes are very generous so it definitely gives you plenty of chance to give the products a good go. You could definitely create quite a nice full-face makeup look using only these products so it could be a good little travel set.

3, 2, 1...FACIALS

Facials have never been easier for you to do yourself at home so I thought that I would share with you a few of my favourite masks from Lonvitalite, an amazing Gold Coast based skincare company.

First up we have the C1 facial mask which focusses on whitening, pigment toning and moisturising. Grume essence extracted from seaweed helps to calm heat and rid toxins as well as strengthen blood circulation thus boosting the skin's metabolism. Also assists in smoothing wrinkles, replenishing the skin and it's nutrient levels.

DIOR ADDICT FLUID STICKS REVIEW

I hope your purses are at the ready girls, be prepared to fall in love with this time-saving purse essential. The Dior Addict Fluid Stick's are the best hybrid between lipgloss and lipstick that I have seen yet, so much so that I would call this product revolutionary. It provides intense colour pigmentation deeper than half of the lipsticks I own but is finished with a stunning shine as if you had applied both a lipstick and a gloss.

WHAT'S IN MY LUST HAVE IT BOX {SEPTEMBER}


I have a monthly subscription to Lust Have It and their fashion spin off FAB Box but I realised that I rarely share with you all what I receive in them. The concept behind Lust Have It is that you pay a monthly subscription fee of $19.95 and receive a box full of 5-6 products whether they be a deluxe sample or a full sized product. I want to start posting unboxings each month since the past few that I have received have surprised me with their fantastic products. This box is no exception with some incredible full-sized items in here let's get into it.

Now that Spring is here, it's a given that our makeup routines are going through a massive transformation. Out with the rosy red cheeks and light setting powers and in with the coral blushes and glowy bronzers. There's no better set to amp up your sunny weather makeup game than the Benefit The Bronze of Champions. This kit has you covered from lashes to lips with an array of some of Benefit's most famous products. Included are six amazing products (and a brush) that are sure to leave you bronzed and glowing. Let me tell you, most of these are very hype-worthy including the Hoola Bronzer and They're Real mascara.

SPRING/SUMMER FASHION - TALULAH COLLECTION OVERVIEW

Spring has sprung so the time for gorgeous fashion is here and no one does it quite as well as Talulah. After viewing their offerings for this new season my fashion wishlist immediately grew as I felt as if this collection was the perfect balance of glamour and wearability.

First up we have the stunning floral one piece pictured above which incorporates the theme of Spring but subtly enough for it not to be overpowering. I love that the base colour is black and the flowers and a white and pastel so it's less casual than if it were white. The bell shaped skirt is a flirty cut and the length makes it modest.
