CELEBRATING MY 1000TH BLOG POST

I am approaching 7 years as a blogger and another huge milestone that I am now reaching today is 1000 blog posts.


This post right now is the one thousandth blog post that is going up on my blog - how crazy is that?!

I was just 13 when I began blogging and will later this year celebrate my 21st birthday so you could definitely say that I spent all my teenage years blogging.

My first post went live on July 31 in 2009. These last 7 years have been spent between making sacrifices and being given opportunities. There has been just as much give as take with my blog in the way that I pour HOURS into it DAILY but the benefits I receive in return are invaluable.

LIP PRODUCTS YOU NEED THIS SEASON / WINTER LIPSTICKS

 

Despite being a lover of warm weather, there is no denying how beautiful Winter lip products are and how much fun experimenting with them is. 


Deep burgundy, spiced nudes and cherry reds are just some of the colours I look for in lip colours around this time of year. I have had a look through my collection and pulled out some of the products I love wearing around this time of year and that I think you need this season.


DRUGSTORE MAKEUP STARTER KIT

As much as I love high end products, you don't always have to spend a lot to get a good quality product that does it's job well. 


So I decided to create a video discussing all of my budget friendly makeup favourites that are perfect for a drugstore starter kit.

If you want more affordable makeup hacks and bargain products check out the budget section of articles from my blog here.

3 WORKOUT BRAS CURRENTLY ON MY WISHLIST

I go through phases of being slightly obsessed with sports bras. I blame it on the fact that I am always taking Pilates and yoga classes because I see so many cute bras in those classes. 


That made me sound like a creep. Like I'm just staring at girls bras. I just can't help but admire an adorable sports bra with an intricate back! I have been browsing a few of my go-to workout places for cute ones on the market and have complied a wishlist of three that I am crushing on.

EASY WAYS TO KEEP A TIDY AND CLEAN PURSE - TUESDAY TIP

www.weheartit.com

I recently purchased a new bag and one thing I promised myself is that I was going to keep it TIDY! No more carelessly throwing receipts into it (and leaving them there for a month) or using it to store like 1000 lip products (read that post here). 


I am so HORRIBLE with keeping my bags tidy so it’s basically a Christmas miracle if I don’t just throw anything and everything into it. I need to learn that my purse is NOT my third home (my second home is my poor car which is usually filled with workout clothes, yoga mats, university books and camera equipment) and I can’t fill it to the brim with useless things. Not only that but I think my shoulder will thank for me decluttering my purse because that thing gets HEAVY!

THE MAYBELLINE INGREDIENTS FOR A FLAWLESS BASE

I love a flawless base but I also love a good drugstore bargain so when the two come together it is a match made in heaven. 


I’m going to be letting you know all about three products from the Maybelline FIT Me range that I use to create a full coverage foundation look.

CONCEALER 3 WAYS

I have a love / hate relationship with concealer but it is mostly love. I say this because I go through periods of not using it at all to using three at one time.


So this post is all about the times when I use three concealers in the same makeup look and my justification behind it. It sounds excessive I know but just hear me out.

6 OUTFITS THAT STOLE THE SHOW AT THE MET GALA 2016

It's where the elite go to dress up and show off their gorgeous looks in New York - how very Gossip Girl (oh hey Blake Lively).  


Yes we are talking the Met Gala 2016 and 6 looks that stole the show this year, not to mention the stunning celebrities that wore them. It's a night that electrifies the city and all the A list celebrities step out in their designer gowns. Only in this post we won't be focusing on designers (ahem, Balmain, Kylie Jenner) but rather creativity uniqueness.

SAVE MONEY AS A STUDENT WITH UNIDAYS- TUESDAY TIP


I fortunately/unfortunately never lived the authentic University life of eating Mi Goreng and catching the bus. 


I luckily started my own business in high school so by the time I made it to my first year studying Journalism / Business I had a viable income to support me. Despite this, there is nothing better than snagging a good bargain – especially when it comes to fashion.

BEHIND THE DESK #8 - ALL ABOUT THIS MONTH'S USA TRIP AND AN UPDATE

In less than 3 weeks I will once again be saying 'Later's Brisbane' and 'HELLO LA' (after a grueling 13 hour flight though). I'm back in the USA and this time seeing a whole lot more than I did last Octover. 


It has been so long since I sat down in my office and just had a chat with you all mainly because I have had SO MUCH going on lately. It’s both fantastic and unfortunate because it means that I now have heaps to fill you in on but haven’t had time to do so until now. So let’s get into it! My head has been spinning lately trying to balance work, university and planning my USA trip. Let’s start off with the USA trip!

HYDRATING SKINCARE ROUTINE



I have gotten into my skincare so much lately and really love the combination of products I have been using. 


So I wanted to do a post on some products that I have been using lately to target hydrating my skin. I have noticed a huge difference since using these products with my skin being a lot smoother so I really think they work and want to recommend them to you!

SOME OF THE 1000 LIP PRODUCTS IN MY PURSE


I’m sure I am not alone in having like 100 different lip products in my bag at any given time. It’s almost like a lucky dip each morning where I reach in and grab the first one I can find. 


Well it’s easier than searching for the exact shade among the 10 options anyway.
