Mecca Haulin'

I'm lucky I don't get down to Melbourne very often, because my bank balance doesn't really approve. Every time I seem to go into Mecca just for a browse, a basket just falls into my hand, and before you know it, I've walked out with a bag of goodies...

This trip I stocked up on some of my favourites and finally bought one of the most highly praised concealers ever.

The first thing I picked up was the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade vanilla. Now, if you've been reading beauty blogs or watching beauty vloggers in the last 3 years or more, you will have heard about this, many call it a holy grail product. I quite like it. The colour is a good match for me, and the staying power is brilliant, it's great for use under the eyes and all over the face, and doesn't get too cakey. I only have two problems with this... 1. It does crease slightly under the eyes, (although I do tend to have big wrinkles under there anyway, so that was bound to happen), and 2. It's quite hard to justify $40 for a concealer, it is great, and it will last me a very long time, but there probably are cheaper alternatives.

The second thing I picked up was the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella. If you've been reading this blog for a while, you will know all about this product! I've been through two of these already, and I'll happily call it my favourite lip product of all time. It's a gorgeous blue-toned red matte lipstick, that applies so easily and lasts all day, simple as that. Again, because it's Nars there is a $34 price tag, but that's a pretty decent price to pay for true love.

Last but not least I re-stocked my favourite Soap & Glory Hand Food. This smells really sweet and fruity, and it sinks into the skin really well. Priced at only $10, it's the perfect hand cream for the changing weather.

Is there anything you guys would suggest for my next Mecca splurge?

Outfit catch-up.

Who doesn't love a good ootd? I know I do!
I love when I put a certain combination of clothes on that makes me want to have a photo shoot and show the world. In reality, I don't have a photographer that can follow me around, snapping all my favourite outfits, but a good old selfie does the job to document them!
I hope you find some inspiration from some of the "selfie worthy" outfits of the past few months!

(I'll put links to as many of the things as I can, as they will have much better pictures of the item than I will!)

My 21st outfit.

Singlet Blouse: Lily Loves @ Target

Top: Lily Loves @ Target

Dress: Lily Loves @ Target

Top: Kmart
Skirt: Sportsgirl (similar)

Top: Glassons cropped t-shirt

Jacket: Sportsgirl 'Editor' Jacket
Blouse: Sportsgirl bow-neck blouse

Let me know if you have any suggestions for pieces to add to my wardrobe! :)

When something just has to give.

I had been posting fairly consistently on this blog for almost a year back in March. I was really proud that I'd managed to get myself motivated among all the other things on my plate. But then I went back to uni and it all just fell apart... The stress of my third and final year of my degree, studying for the medical entrance exam, and work and life commitments just overwhelmed me, and something had to give. Sadly it was this blog for a little while.

But I'm back!

I've got a load of ideas for future posts that I hope you will enjoy.

Thanks for sticking with me.
