Girls night in

Hi all,

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.

So tell me how would you plan your day?

Zip tops

Hi all,

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.

Have you been shopping lately?

2016 Favourites

Hi all,

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.

Every day make up products

Hi all,
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

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 🙂

 

 

Pregnancy fashion

Hi all,
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.

Hope all is well – I have five more weeks to go before lil bubs is here!

Babymoon

Hi all
Feels like it has been a while. I’m currently 26 weeks pregnant and have come back from my babymoon. I knew I wanted a short getaway before baby comes and I get no sleep. We ended up going to Cairns and Port Douglas. It was lovely and the weather really turned up nicely.

We went to Hartleys Crocodile Adventure park and also sat on the sky rail. It was amazing and a great week off.

Hope you are all well 🙂
