So lets see how this goes! Ill be uploading the picture of the look next week sometime, should be fun :)
Are you taking part?

Mini haul


Few things ive picked up in the past few days, thought i would share with you all.
       Medium size stand mirror/ Local cheap shop
I purchased this mirror from my local cheap shop also know as the '$2.00 shop'. 
Even though hardly anything is $2.00...

I brought this mirror to apply my mascara and lipstick etc,. As my mirror in my room is on my wall and has a desk between us, it can be quite hard to see my eyelashes etc,. ( i apologize for the hand prints) 

            Bubblegum lip scrub/Lush
I had been eyeing this lip scrub for awhile now and finally went and purchased it.  I have quite dry/cracked lips often and thought i should give this a try. So far, i like it! It is $10.00 but you do get a little of product and definitely would last you awhile.

Jen Lace Up Round Toe Broque Ballet/
I ordered this shoes off . This is not the type of shoes i would normaly buy but i thought why not, i like them and they were only $12.00! Amazing or what!?

Vintage looking holder stand/Cheap store
Im re-doing/re-decorating my room and i have a certain look im going for. And this seemed quite perfect for my room. What im going to put on it, i still dont know... But hey! It was $10.00 and im sure ill find something.   

Detangler brush/Local chemist
I than purchased this detangler brush from my local chemist. I needed a new brush and the detangler brushes seem to be quite good, so i thought why not!? It was around $13.00-14.00 which isnt to bad. So far i like it! 

                  My next haul is going to be much more exciting and i can not wait for them to arrive! 

                  Why does shipping take so long? Why? ):

On a personal note...

2013|New Year|New me?

I never really had resolutions or took them seriously anyways. But this year i did. I feel like this year is really going to be different. I'm quite a shy person and don't make friends easily. But after reading Zoella's post 'Just Say Yes' , im slowly changing, for the better. Im saying yes to more things and i will tell you now, its not easy. I recently just stopped being bestfriends with my 'bestfriend' who hurt me very much. It was a really hard time to go through, but its getting easier for me to cope with. She had the opposite personality to me, we were so alike but so different. She was more 'out there' and very confident.Which made is easier for her to meet new people, than me.

I'm a very shy person to people i first meet and am still shy even after knowing them quite well. For my close friends i'm myself, but it took about six months to get there. I'm also the type of person that thinks about EVERYTHING A LOT. Which really bothers me sometimes. When i plan to go out with friends for example i need to know everything, down to the littlest detail and i really don't know why. I just feel more comfortable i guess. But lately, after reading Zoella's post, i have started slowly coming out of my shell. I've been at my first job for about two and a half months now and I've started making friends. Instead of trying to avoid conversations, like i use too ( not rudely of course) I know start the conversations or try my best to continue them. I'm 'saying yes' to more things. For example, i never use to buy things online especially clothes just in case they didn't fit or i didn't like them and i would regret buying it and wasting my money. Another thing, i hate is regret. Because i think about things too much, it makes me regret things. I hate regretting things, so if i know exactly what i'm doing and think about stuff and know exactly whats going on, than i most likely wont regret anythings. Its not like the things i regret are bad things, for example it may be buying a certain thing, not buying a certain thing, going out and eating and forgetting to ask any of my family members if they would like me to bring something back for them. All that stupid little things that really don't matter, but to me they do? 

Anyways back on the positive note, I've been saying yes to more things lately. And it has made me such a happier person. I'm coming out of my shell, i feel more confident and i feel just so much more relaxed and happier. And seriously all the credit goes to Zoe. I would of never of thought to just step out of my comfort zone just a little if it wasn't for her blog post  I hate being out of my comfort zone, but doing it bit by bit and slowly makes it not so hard. I feel like i can be more independent now and make new friends etc,. I'm a person that keeps things in a lot and never likes to break down, in front of people anyways. I always do it in my spare time when no ones around or when no one will notice. I like to keep things inside, i don't know why. But writing this blog post, i have let a little bit about what i think on in the inside out. 

                              Thankyou for reading. Comments are welcome ! xo

My lipstick collection

 I only really wear lipsticks to parties and events, not on a everyday basis. 

This is all the lipsticks and very highly pigmented lip gloss/balm i own. I thought i would include some of my lip gloss because i would very much considered them as a lipstick for how pigmented they are.
I own three Revlon lipsticks. The first two are from the  Revlon Super Lustrous Collection, there both matte lipsticks and the other one is from the Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter collection. They range around $20.00-22.00 AU. The packaging is quite nice and i really like how up the top, its clear and you can see the colour of the lipstick. The Revlon lip butter packaging can get quite annoying as it smudges a little when winding it up and down, other than that its fine.  
The colours are 012 Sky Pink, 006 Really Red and 075 Lollipop.
I really like these colours, my favorite would be 012 Sky Pink. It doesn't show up as well on camera but the colour is a really nice pale pink. The red is pretty much explained by the name 'really red'. Its more of a dark red, than a light red. The Revlon lip butter is a really nice purpley-pink colour. The Revlon lip butter is definitely more moisturizing than the Revlon lustrous collection. They stay on for quite a long time and maybe only needed to be re-applied a few times during the day/night. 
These lipsticks are from the Maybelline Colour Sensational Pearl Collection
 and Gosh Pearl Shine. I think they both range around $16.00-20.00 AU. The packaging is quite nice, not much to say. The Maybelline has a clear lid and the Gosh lipstick has a grey/black lid. 
 I ordered the Maybelline Colour Sensational  lipstick in 952 Glistening Pink online and the Gosh Pearl Shine  in 621 Papaya. When i ordered the Maybelline lipstick i thought it was going to be a pale pink colour. But its actually just a glossy finish with not much colour. At first i wasn't impressed but i actually really like it now, i wear it on top of other lipsticks and by itself. Its a really nice nude, everyday colour. The Gosh lipstick i got in a gift pack, I've near worn it just because its a really dark orange and has a glossy/metallic look, that im not really a huge fan of. 
These three lipsticks are cheap lipsticks that I've  gotten in gift sets/packs. The fist one is from colour co and the other three are a no name brand. 

The colour range is really nice. The first lipstick is a medium purple, which i really like. Its a really nice purple colour. There all really moisturizing  and quite pigmented. The seconded lipstick is a nice dark pink colour  and is quite pigmented. I really like this colour and would be my favorite out of the four. The third lipstick is quite sheer and not as pigmented. Its a light to medium pink colour. Its shows up orange in the photo but is a pink. The third colour as you can notice doesn't wind up but its still use able. Its very similar to the second color which is a dark pink colour.  All these lipsticks are very cheap and inexpensive and the quality is amazing for the price. 

I decided to include my very highly pigement lipgloss/lipbalm as i would consider them as lipsticks. I have Elf Conditioning lip balm, Baby Lips Pink Glow and two Maybelline Volume Seduction XL lip gloss's. 
The Elf Conditioning lip balm is in mellow melon. I really LOVE this colour. Its such a really nice coral pink summer colour. The only disappointing thing about this product is that it doesn't last for very long, i find my self having to always reapply the lip balm. I also included my Baby Lips Pink Glow in mixed berry. I'm so happy that Baby Lips came out with a tinted lip balm, i really love the colour and the pigmentation is really good. Than i have the Maybelline Volume Seduction XL lip gloss in sensuous ruby and full-bodied wine. The pigmentation is amazing and i absolutely love both these colours. They have a glossy finish and are also a lip plumber which is an added bonus. Not quite sure if it works though 

This is my lipstick collection, hope you gets enjoyed this post. 
Thanks for reading x
