I don’t know about you but Father’s Day always sneaks up on me…. I think It’s because it’s my birthday towards the end of August which usually has me pretty distracted and before I know it it’s the big day and bam, there I am present less and wearing my shit daughter award sash. (I also find this whole changing date/ 1st Sunday in September business seriously confusing…. Come on it can’t be just me?)
Probably my most asked question here on the blog (and in real life for that matter) is related to beauty advice and product knowledge. Now I’m certainly no expert and I have absolutely zero qualifications to back up these claims but i have a self appointed PHD in the do’s and don’ts when it comes to the beauty upkeep of myself and like minded women. And by ‘like minded’, I mean anyone who is interested….
As we age, grow and evolve so do our beauty tastes and requirements, Methods that would get us by just fine in our 20’s are suddenly not cutting the mustard or simply no longer suit us or our style personalities (Hot pink hair version of Caitlin I am looking at you).
Through blogs, conversations with friends and You Tube we are now privvy to a wealth of information that we otherwise may have not known… I love hearing a new beauty secret or piece of advice and today we are discussing just that!
The thing about beauty products and treatments is that we each require something a little bit different, things that work wonders for me might not be your bag… but then again sometimes they might be…
Lately I have had to do a bit of a re-evaluation in regards to money. Or more to the point, what I do with it.
You see when you want to buy a house certain things need to be sacrificed; buying excessive clothes and makeup like I have the bank balance of Oprah is one of those sacrifices.
Yes, gone are the days when I can freely throw money away with reckless abandon… Ok I’m still firmly invited to the reckless spending family reunion but I’m definitely much better than I used to be….
Every now and then an idea pops into my head and I instantly know it’s going to be a good one. Ok to be fair, I also have my share of bad ones…. but who doesn’t?
For a few years now I have wanted to get my eye brows microbladed. I have researched and had quotes but never actually went through with it for 2 reasons.
You may have noticed my absence lately both here on the blog and also on my socials, or not, maybe I’ve left it so long y’all be like ‘Twist of who?!’
I have mentioned before that the combination of starting my new job and trying to finish off my study has left me a bit time poor. While all this is true and certainly a worthy excuse, it was exactly that; an excuse.
South Australia gets a pretty raw deal when it comes to beauty brands and their availability. For the longest time us Radelaidians have had to save our penny’s for any trips to Melbourne, Sydney or in extreme cases overseas just to get our hands on the good stuff.
But thanks to the guy who invented the internet we can now shop the world’s finest right from our very own lounge room. (Thank you internet dude, bless you)
The high summer heat can make it virtually impossible to look like your glam and foxy self, in fact I am convinced that such days were only invented just to test our make up application skills.
My summer make up routine differs from my winter make up look, is has to. Cruising around Adelaide with patchy foundation and eyeliner running down my face is really not the look I aspire to.
So my only option is to change it up, wear something that I know is going to last the distance.
They say change is as good as a holiday, while I’ll admit that getting a new hair cut doesn’t exactly compare to laying on a Beach in Bali the symbolism behind it is still the same.
Sometimes something as simple as a new hairstyle really can give you that extra injection of sass that you might be searching for. I’m not saying a bangin’ new look is going to be the answer to all of life’s problems but something so simple is worth a shot right?
Hello 2017, haven’t you been lovely so far! That’s largely part to me still being on holidays but as they are coming to an end tomorrow it has got me thinking of how I am going to take charge and make my year just that little bit brighter.
Many of these things I incorporated in as New Year’s Resolutions. The concept of New Year’s Resolutions seems to divide people, personally I am all for them, if you need a reminder such as January 1st then so be it…. I know I do!
Lately I have noticed that I have not been feeling 100%, I feel claggy, sluggish and have little to no energy. I am convinced it is because of my eating and exercise regime, or lack thereof.
New Years Eve, is seems to be one of those things that you either love or hate; Personally, I fall into the love category for a few reasons.
Firstly, I love setting resolutions, ok so they may not always work out how I had hoped but having and setting goals is a good and positive thing. Sure you can set goals at any time of the year but i find New Years Eve acts as a sort of reminder/ benchmark.
