Good Morning! I have just woken up to a clear, blue sky. No clouds today! Am so happy that I have to do errands and pay bills today so that I can spend as much time as I want outside. I'm still in my snuggly robe with bed hair, so no FOTD until this afternoon. I have made a bento for me to have while I'm out today as well and even made deco nails to wear to my work training this morning. But I left my GHD at Elfy's, so it means that this messy bed hair will be todays look, so I might do a 'hot-mess' sort of eye.

Yesterday was fun spending time with my Dad. We were going to see Toy Story 3, but my brother Anthony started to feel sick so we just went for lunch instead. Had a big 'doh' moment too, as we were trying to all fit in Dad's ute, not even thinking of the family 5 seater sitting idle in the garage. Have to buy more yummy strawberries today! Strawberry season has started early this year and dunking fresh berries in melted chocolate helps to ease the cold of winter. And hot chocolate.

I have to start getting ready so that I can leave in an hour, so I might update later on with my FOTD.

Enjoy the sun while you can and as many berries.

Good Morning!

AHH!! The cloudy days are over and today I can see a really pretty blue sky. Still some clouds around, but now I don't feel all 'blah' from grey overload. Passing the time before my Dad gets here and adventures ensue. Today I have no housework! NOTHING! Lol it has really made my morning so that I can have a lazy day, hihi.

Today's face is pretty basic, cause I have no idea what we might do today so I just opted to have the same face as I do for school. I also stole my best friend's scarf when I left her place yesterday and she forgot to re-steal when she took me home. Wasn't going to remind her hihi.

Today it's all about the lashes and the skin using Maybelline products. I know that some people like to collect MAC products, but I always manage to veer towards the Maybelline stand in the store.

Last night I also went online and bought an 88 matte palette for $13 including shipping. The exact same as Coastal Scents only the case doesn't have the Coastal Scents logo on it, which I like. Trying to shake up my Face of the Days - even though this is my third FOTD - and get some colour in. It also helps me practice new techniques and all that jazz on myself and then attempting on other people.

Well my Dad will be here anytime now so I need to pack my bag for the day. Fill you all in on my adventures later!

Bronze Look

Hey Guys, this is just another add to my whole face of the day thing that I normally keep to facebook but have decided to also add to my blog here and on my twitter. It's using a different colour BYS palette, my Urban Decay Primer Potion and Maybelline gel liner.

I had to cancel my brow appointment today, so they're still a bit feral :(.

Do you guys ever do a face of the day thing or know anyone that does? Comment and link me bellow!

It's raining and it's cold here, so I'm going to go and play Mass Effect in the lounge. Night guys!

A Purple Look

Hey Guys!

Again, I'm getting bad at posting, but meh for now. Still holidays and I'm totally bored. Came up with this really cute business idea that I wrote a plan and timeline for. More details at a later date.

As the title suggests, I have a makeup look for you all. I bought this el cheapo BYS metallics palette today and thought to give a try-out and mini review. It's the pinks and purple palette that has 8 shadows for $5. Overall, I will use this product again but not everyday. The shadows are talc based and smell like baby powder, but aren't overly chalky and contain a decent amount of pigment. Pretty easy to blend as they're metallic, but they aren't crease-proof. I ran out of my Urban Decay Primer Potion so I just used my everyday face primer instead. There is a very mild crease at the moment, but I can't really give any more info about creasing until later on tonight.

This is my attempt at a more day-appropriate look using the Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner in Charcoal, inner highlight has a small swipe and blend of Maybelline Shadow Stylist in Contempory White, glitter spots are made by the BYS Glitter Mascara in 01 Silver Glitter and mascara is Maybelline Collosal Volum' Express in Black. Excuse my brows, I have an appointment with my brow stylist tomorrow. Think the look would be better if I was wearing some blue circle lens, rather than have my eye colour au naturale.

Going out to Elfy's tonight, which should be fun. Trying to gather the motivation to pack, but it's hard lol. I'm going to do a coppery sort of Arabic inspired look using the other palette that I picked up today. The coppery palette is much more pigmented than the purple palette, but both shadows work well. I might re-do it later as a dramatic night look using a darker purple and some false lashes.
