Rag Bone hat

Eos lip treatment

St Tropez sun care

The temperature here in Central Queensland has been crazy hot. I am talking above 30 degrees Celsius in September! What’s a girl to do when the weather is unbearable? Head to the beach of course! I am hoping to head on down to the surf and sand this weekend to soak up some much needed Vitamin D (as an accountant I can get pretty lacking in that area) and enjoy the salty sunshine.
I’ll definitely be taking sunscreen and an SPF lip balm for sure. A hat is a must for sure as well! I might be doing some vlogging this weekend for a change so keep your eyes peeled on my YouTube channel for some hang out time.
What are you up to this weekend?

September 2013 Favourites

One of my favourite parts of ending each month is reflecting on the great products that I’ve used and loved for the past 30 days or so (or in some cases longer!). With my spending ban in place for the entirety of September, I found some old favourites to use again which I had forgotten how good they were! So here we go!


Brite Organix Semi Fabulous Pink - RRP $14.99

I think it’s pretty obvious that the biggest change for me this month has been my hair colour. I am absolutely loving having bright pink hair! I feel like my confidence has increased and I love the concerned looks I get from older ladies. Obviously I don’t have much to compare pink hair dyes too, as this is the only one I’ve used. But it’s cheap, available in Woolworths supermarket and does a fabbity fab job of making my hair fuschia :)


Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2IN1 Cleanser Mask -RRP $13.99 150mL

This has been in my shower for a while now and I really like using it for the mask aspect. I pop in on when I am waiting for my hair treatment to soak in and shave my legs. It’s a nice little routine and it’s been helping to zap those pesky monsters on my face.


Origins Super Spot Remover - RRP $US15.00 10mL

I have been using the Origins Super Spot Remover for a while and it seems to really help out with my cystic acne. I make sure I don’t use too much product, or too often, otherwise it can lead to flaking skin! Not cool! However, when used properly, it reduced my cystic acne and really zapped them good.


L’Oreal Nude Magique Smoothing Primer - RRP $29.95 15mL

I have been using this primer all month after receiving a sample in the August Bellabox. This really creates a smooth canvas for makeup and it really helps my makeup stick longer than my usual primer. Combined with my Urban Decay Deslick Makeup Setting Spray, I am finding my makeup is lasting longer despite the hot, humid weather (31 degrees in September? Really Queensland, really?!)


Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation in Shade 53 RRP $32.00 30mL

This is my most used foundation of September. I found that I wanted a lighter foundation to use while the weather warms up and Bourjois really stepped up to the plate! It gives me great coverage during the day but doesn’t feel cakey and overdone. I also think a dewier finish looks nice in the warmer months :)

MAC Palette Total Cost $US160.00 - 15 shades and single palette

I am understandly in love with my new MAC palette. I spent a lot of time choosing shades, so a lot of effort and time went into this palette! I am really happy with every shade I chose, but the ones I have been getting the most wear out of have been (from left to right)

- Ricepaper (Inner Corner and Brow Bone)

- Goldmine (Inner Crease)

- Wood Winked (Outer Lid and Crease)

- Charcoal Brown (Brow Powder)

That is my failsafe eye look. I’ve also really been enjoying Satin Taupe, Sushi Flower and Sable.


MAC Mineralize SkinFinish in Lightscapade - RRP $47.00

I’ve fallen hard for this guy! I love a good highlighter and this one adds just the right amount sheen to my face without making me look too much like a disco ball! (Granted in my video I look quite…highlighted. But that’s because my light was being a naughty child).

I feel like this is pretty overpriced for Australian Dollars, but if you shop online you can get it for a decent price!


iOS7 on iPhone - FREE!

My iPhone 4S is not the newest phone…BUT it feels like a new phone after the latest software update from Apple! I am in love with the clean lines and general chic look of iOS7. Let me know in the comments below if you would be interested in an iPhone Tag - where I show you apps I use and love!


BONUS FAVE! Galaxy iPhone Case (4S) - RRP $0.99!!

I also am in love with my iPhone cover. I found it on eBay for $0.99 with free postage. Can you get any more perfect? I am still loving the galaxy trend even though it is probably so passé. #sorrynotsorry.

What are your favourites for the month? I can’t believe it’s October already, crazy! I feel like I have had time to fully enjoy the first third of Spring yet D: !

Stay Minty!

Describe your skincare routine in five words..
A constant battle, kill me.  :P
What’s your skin type?
Acne prone, oily combination skin. Also quite scarred from past acne.
What’s your favourite skincare product?
At the moment, I think my favourite skincare product would have to be the Garnier Dark Spot Corrector Daily Illuminating Moisturiser. It is really helping to fade my acne scarring that is left behind after every cystic acne spot.
