April Favourites

I can't believe it's already May! Where has this year gone?
I hope you all had a great month; I've been quite busy with work this month, and have another two more weeks where I'll be struggling to post :(
At my work I don't wear much makeup at all - I work at a swimming pool!
So my favourites this month are some of the products I have been wearing daily...

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in the shade 005 'Silky Beige'
This is a cult product in the beauty blogging world. Since picking it up I have used it every day. It doesn't have much colour to it - so I wouldn't recommend it if you like your powder to give you great coverage. It is a great powder that does what it says and keeps me matte all day. 

Skin 79 Hot Pink Super Plus Beblesh Balm 
I absolutely love this! It's great for a tiny hint of colour, it comes out greyish and just blends into your skin flawlessly. It looks like you have nothing on at all, but helps to even out my skin. It also claims to be a 10 in 1 solution, including whitening and it also has SPF, so it is great for your skin. I use it instead of foundation for work, or for days where I don't want to wear foundation.

NYX Blush in 03 'Angel'
This is a cool matte baby pink coloured powder blush. It is a great everyday blush for me when I only want a hint of colour, so I have been reaching for it daily this month.

NYX Matte Black Liner
This liner is so extremely black and pigmented, I love it! It's retractable, so no need for sharpening which I love. I use this in my waterline and tightline and it's great for smudging into my lashes.

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer in 010 'Ivory'
This is a highlighting concealer that I use under my eyes. It's great on its own for a subtle look or if i want a more flawless look I'll put it over a concealer that hides my dark circles a little better. This is something I use on a daily basis and will be repurchasing.

Perfume of the Month: Paco Rabanne Black XS for Her

This is such a sexy scent! It is quite manly, with a floral yet spicy/woody scent. I've been wearing this for years now and have gone through quite a few bottles. It lasts all day and is a great night time perfume.

Food of the Month: Lemon Coconut Slice

I made this last week as I was procrastinating instead of doing an essay for University, and it is so yummy! I made double mixture and it is already all gone! I'll definitely make it again, everyone in my family loved it. If you have a sweet tooth you will love this.
You can find the recipe here.

Song of the Month: The Script - If You Could See Me Now
I went to see the script on the 6th of April at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne and they were absolutely AMAZING. This song is about the Danny's father who passed away I believe, and he sings it with such heart...

ANZAC Day 2013

ANZAC Day has a special meaning to me as my Grandfather was in the New Zealand Navy and is currently the Vice Chairman of the Currumbin RSL on the Gold Coast.
The Currumbin RSL ANZAC Day Service is the service that is televised live on Sunrise on Chanel 7, and he plays an important role in both organising and running the event.

They shall grow not old,
as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them,
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
Well will remember them.

Lest We Forget

Mini Priceline Haul

Hey everyone :)
Those of you in Australia might know that on the 23rd and 24th of April Priceline had a huge 40% off all cosmetics!
I couldn't resist stopping by before my uni exam on Tuesday - and of course I picked up a couple of things, so I thought I'd show you what I got.

Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting Concealer - 10 Natural Beige

As you may know I have quite annoying dark under eye circles and am still on the hunt for my HG concealer so I thought I'd give this one a go. It promises 16 hour wear and I picked it up in the lightest shade, 10 Natural Beige.

Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick - 103

I already have one of the Kate Moss matte lipsticks in the shade 107 and a Lasting Finish formula in the shade 16 and love them, so I picked up this shade which I've had my eye on. It's a warm toned, medium pink and the formula is extremely creamy and opaque. 

Face of Australia Lip Quench Moisturising Lipstick - Lychee Crush & Pink Champagne

I haven't tried this formula of lipstick before but have heard great things about them. I've been looking at these two particular colours for a while now and decided to finally pick them up.
Lychee Crush is a peachy nude shade which I saw on Lauren Beautyy's YouTube, and Pink Champagne is more of a pastel pink shade.

Maybelline Baby Lips - Anti-Oxidant Berry

Finally, I picked up a back up of my favourite Baby Lips. This is my favourite chapstick and I always have one on hand! It smells so delicious which makes it even better! :)

Have you tried any of these products? I get so excited to try out new beauty products :)
I love you all, have a great day!

Life Update & Rabmles

Hello lovelies,

I thought I need to apologise for my lack of posts recently. I really want to post more regularly and build my blog to make it more successful, it is really important to me and I absolutely love reading your nice comments and finding others who have similar interests to me.

So I've been swamped with uni and work recently - and not to help I was ill with a cold for a couple of weeks. Once that finally went away my eye decided it was the perfect time to get an ulcer! So I was struggling without wearing my contacts (I don't have a pair of glasses) and couldn't do much!

I finally purchased the beloved Chanel Tan de Soleil bronzer - and after trying two different Chanel counters, I was lucky enough to get my hands on the last one as It has been discontinued!

Since it's into autumn in Melbourne and the weather isn't too kind, I needed to go down a shade in my favourite foundation - the Too Faced Amazing Face Liquid Foundation. When I went to get colour matched I was informed that that too has been discontinued! So I'm now on the hunt for a new HG foundation. Any recommendations?

Last Friday I went to the Supre factory outlet in Broadmeadows for the first time. It is absolutely huge and they had such good bargains! I was thinking of doing a haul of the clothing items I picked up - so keep an eye out for that if you are interested in hauls.

On Sunday I spent the day at an indoor sports centre organised through my work which was a lot of fun and made me realise I really need to get back into an exercise routine.

I also took my younger cousin shopping for her birthday on Monday at Highpoint Shopping Centre. Since the new section has opened I've been quite a few times and I absolutely love it!

Has anyone been watching the TV series 'The Following'? Episode 4 of season 1 airs tonight and I can't wait! I love it and am already addicted. It's a drama centred around a serial killer who has been jailed that has surrounded himself with a cult devoted to him. If you haven't seen it and you like those type of shows definitely check it out!

Finally, I'd just like to say my thoughts and prayers go out to the people affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. I couldn't imagine going through what those innocent people have been put through, and I hope the sick individuals who were involved are bought to justice.
