Mermaid Makeup Tutorial

This look was so fun to do! And since its day 10, I'm pretty much halfway through now :D I'm getting very excited for this years challenge, and I'm already getting down some ideas of looks I'd like to do.

So mermaid today. Straight away I thought blue, green, a bit of purple and lots of glitter! I also went a bit crazy and did a scale pattern on the sides of my face :P This look is not as wearable as others I've done, but it was just so fun!

Big Haul!

So this post is a bit late... Sorry about that. They always slip my mind :P But anyway, onto the actual post.

This is a pretty varied haul from when Lachlan and I went to Doncaster Westfield for a shopping day out. It was a bit of an adventure and we had a lot of fun. We even got lost because we'd never been there before :P And other than the ridiculous parking (seriously I thought Chadstone was bad) it was an awesome day :)


Stay beautiful.

Current Nail Obsession

Ok, I'm a little obsessed with nails at the minute anyway, and I have bought a lot of nail polish recently. But I have noticed a bit of a trend, so I decided it was time to do a video on one of my more specific obsessions; butter LONDON and glitter!

I own 6 Butter polishes, which doesn't seem like much to count as an obsession, but I've got them all fairly recently and they are more expensive as far as nail polish goes. Though, in Australia they are only a few dollars more expensive than the likes of OPI and Essie, it is more difficult to find them at a reduced price (eBay anyone?). And also, 4 of my 6 are glitter polishes :P


I hope you enjoy the video, and let me know in the comments if you have any Butter or glitter polishes, or what your latest obsession is :)

Stay beautiful.
