I’ve searched through Santa’s workshop and a whole lot of Christmas gift guides to find the absolute Best Christmas Beauty Buys for 2017. Whether you are looking for something for your bestie, creating your own Christmas wish list (that’s what my boyfriend was worried I was doing) or doing some major window shopping, there’s something to spread some Christmas cheer for every beauty fan. In my opinion, these are the best of the best from brands such as Too Faced, NYX, Benefit, Lush, Tarte, ASOS and more. Continue reading
Birthday vouchers = Mecca Maxima Haul time! I was super lucky to get some Mecca Max vouchers for my 27th birthday. I picked up a couple of things that had been lurking in my shopping cart online as well as topping up some all time favourites.
Mecca Maxima is finally here in Auckland! Not only does it stock a whole tonne of brands which were hard to get hold of before, but the store is absolutely beautiful and the staff are friendly, helpful and not annoyingly pushy or in your face. My friends and I stopped by (and but stopped by I mean spent a decent hour and a bit here) during it’s opening weekend.

I would definitely say that it is the most versatile eye shadow palette I have, and it’s just sooo beautiful! Continue reading

Here are my favourite beauty related Instagram accounts at the moment, these are accounts I check almost each day (and sometimes several times a day) for a dose of Instagram inspo! Continue reading
I’m having makeup cravings. There’s really no rhyme or reason, and I didn’t just win the lottery either. I just want all the makeup. Two nights this week I have sat on the couch filling up online shopping carts and then having a little laugh to myself when either I see the total cost in USD, or I see the shipping price to get the goods to NZ. To date, I have made one actual purchase based on these cravings and currently have two full shopping carts open in my browser. I’m also tweeting my makeup friend Elese, as she has offered to let me ship some things to her place in Australia which she will forward over to me. As I said, makeup cravings, major ones….
