It’s been a while since I last blogged. Time flies even when you are at home with a bub. We managed to scrape in a family day trip and since bub hates the car- screaming was a lot of the way. Thankfully it was a beautiful day and we walked around Geelong.
Have you ever wanted to know what you would do if you had a girls night in? Personally I miss those days without a baby to hang with your girlfriends and have a girly night. This is what my friends and I would get up to :
Everyone bring some food to share for the night – whether it be home made treats or some junk food or some dips – I’m a foodie after all
Set up a nail station where we can get our nails done (I have a gel mani set that is great for these kind of events)
Chill with a Netflix movie – probably a chick flick like 27 dresses or some other rom com
Have a good old chat and gossipy session – I love hanging out with my girlfriends and finding out what is happening with their lives while eating
Eventbrite has a resource for you to book a girls night out or in and create that one of a kind day with the ability to track registrations online.
It’s hard being a mum and going back to blogging but I’m trying to while lil one is asleep. Also its hard shopping with a lil one but I wanted to buy a new top so I tried these four tops but I seem to be gravitating to black and white – maybe because it can hide spillages. Excuse the pram in the photos :p
These were all from Temt and priced around $9.95
In the end I came home with this elephant print top – its really interesting and I love the color of it.
As I did a round up of 2015 favourites I thought I would do the same for 2016
1.Favourite series – Fuller house – After watching the whole Full house as kids to see them come back as adults was a joy to see.
2. Favorite drink – Matcha
3. Favorite trip – Trip to Cairns for our babymoon.
4. Favorite new product – Elf brows – Not only is this inexpensive but it was very useful for my brows
5. Favorite lipstick – I have been drawn more to just a lip moisturiser or chapstick
6. Favorite fragrance – Green tea – Elizabeth arden
7. Favorite bag – Sportsgirl backpack – This has been my go to bag especially when I was pregnant.
8. Favorite piece of clothing – Maternity singlets from H&M
9. Favorite accessory – Fitbit alta – I have been wearing it all the time and it tracks sleeping and steps.
10. Favorite memory – The birth of my cute daughter at the end of this year. It was an experience carrying her for 9 months in my belly and then having her pop out. Now she is about 5 weeks old and growing so fast.
Hope you all have a happy new year and lets see what 2017 brings 🙂
How are you all doing? Now that I’m on maternity leave I have a bit more time to blog 🙂 Today I wanted to share my everyday make up products
First I would normally use a toner which is not featured above to clean my face and get all that last dirt off my face. Then I would use my Sk2 lotion to pat into my skin followed by Olay complete for sensitive skin moisturing lotion. I have been using this one for years and really love how it absorbs into the skin and doesn’t feel oily or leave my skin dry.
My Go-to foundation at the moment is Max factor miracle match blur and nourish foundation in medium followed by my Maybelline age rewind concealer in medium. I love this concealer and have repurchased this product many times as I can’t find anything else that does the job of hiding undereye bags and other imperfections.
I also use a lip balm and this one is from Japan. For my eyebrows I didn’t used to fill them in but eyebrows definitely define a face so I have been using this Elf duo one and the cream one actually does a good job and blends into my brows nicely but I think I will have to try some other ones to see what else is out there.
For my eyes I use this Wet n Wild palette in Petal pusher – ever since I bought it in the states it has been my go to look the ones that have hit pan you can see are my go to colors one is a mauve kind of color and then I smoke it out with the darker purple. I use the kiss me eyeliner from Japan – they have the best eyeliners – they are waterproof and they glide on nicely and then I finish with curling my eyes with the Heroine masacara that is also waterproof. I have been using both of these products for years and if anyone goes back to Japan I try and get them to repurchase them for me 🙂
So that’s about it – sometimes I will whack some blush on but I hardly contour or highlight my face. Especially with my pregnancy coming to an end I tend to stay indoors for most of my week and only put on makeup when I’m heading out.
Hope you are all having a great week. Let me know any holy grail products I should try 🙂
I’m coming to my 35th week of my pregnancy and thought I would share with you all – pregnancy fashion or I should say maternity fashion. To tell you the truth there isn’t a lot of great maternity wear and actually throughout my whole pregnancy I think I only bought one maternity item which was a singlet the rest were stretchy dresses or tops that could just cover my belly and also be used after I have given birth.
On this particular occasion I was shopping for a dress to wear to my sisters wedding. All of these were non maternity wear items but could slide over my bump and still look cute.
