HOTD + FOTD + OOTD + New Chi Chi Shimmer Brick

Stuff I used:
Maybelline Lash Stilhetto Mascara
Prestige Gold Eye Liner
Inglot Eyeshadow (Base)
NP Set Liquid Veil in Moscow Pink
Benefit Hellow Flawless Powder Foundation
Chi Chi Shimmer Brick in Rose
Loreal Eyeshadow
Sportsgirl Eyeshadow (Eyeliner)
This is my new Chi Chi Shimmer Brick. It retails from Target for about $20, but I was lucky enough to buy it on sale for half that!! Bargainnn. I absolutely love this. I bought it in "Rose". I absolutely love to have super shiney cheeks (don't care if thats tacky!), and it's great because it's buildable and gives a nice glow and gorgeous colour! Also, the top stripe (lightest colour) can be used as a brow bone/inner corner highlight :)
** As you can see in my FOTD, if you have some pimples, it will make them more noticeable! BUt that's like all shimmer/illuminators!
Usually I get full head of foils, but I haven't coloured my hair in about 3 months!! I really want my hair to grow, and so not only have I stopped bleaching it, but from today I have stopped straightening it! (except for weekends)
My hair dries insanely. It's all frizzy, not curly, not wavy, not straight? it's a mess! So I decided to bobby pin the hell out of it! I haven't perfected it yet, it's uber messy, and I need to loosen up the sides a bit, but you get the look I was going for! Any hair care/style tips would be appreciated!!
The above pictures were obviously taken when I hadn't dressed yet! Hence the no braaaa!! But this is what I wore today. I reckon it's a tad emo ish hahahaha The singlet was an "over sized" singlet, but I do not DO over sized! So I took it in with a sewing machine myself :) V. proud of myself haha

New Wayne Cooper Ankle Boots + FOTD

Here's my face of the day, I took these pictures with the camera that I got from Target as a replacement to the one that broke - I mentioned that it gave a green tint to everything? You guys can see that right? Compared with my other pictures... I just don't think it really captures what is actually there... Hmmm. You can't even see my eyeshadow! but whatever.

In picture 3 you can see the scar - In a post a while back (april-ish) I explained how I banged my head and ended up in hospital? Well there's the scar! and eww at my bad skin! thats what late nights not taking off your makeup does. yuk yuk yuk.

These are my new pair of booties! I've been looking for some ankle boots for ages, but couldn't find any plain ones (most have studs/ruffles/etc) I'm still not 100% if I love them, I would have prefer one with more detail at the ankle! But they are gorgeous :) and I love the cute little zippers at the back.

Thigh High Boots

So Im very excited about paying up and taking the Sportsgirl thigh high heeled boots of Lay Buy very soon :) Hopefully before next saturday!!!

I fell in love with them at the store, but I didn't even think about what I could wear them with!! Basically I was thinking a black mini + blazer? But after looking up on the internet I've found there's a tonne of other ways to wear them!

Here are some of my favourites
I'd love to be able to wear them like Kim K does, but .. I'm lacking her booty!
I love Lady GaGa, but no, I'd never wear them like this.

Sportsgirl Eyeshadow Haul + FOTD

I went into Sportsgirl the other day, tried on some sexy as knee high heeled boots <3 put them on laybuy and was about to walk out before I realised I hadn't checked out their make up section (I always do this before I leave Sportsgirl!) in a huge silver bowl they had all their eyeshadows and I (being a bargain addict) was immediately attracted to red stickers that were pasted on the casing!

Turns out that the eyeshadows, instead of being the marked $4.95 (down from like $7-8 or something?) were actually only 65 cents... How could I resist!!!

So I walked away with five eyeshadows for $3 something!!!

 As you can tell, they're all neutrals, I can't really pull off colour! (Although I'm currently trying my luck with navy blue) Anywaysss, here's a FOTD I did using the new colours :)

I used 3 of the 5 colours;
- "Back Up Dancer" Light colour, all over lid to brow bone
- "Super Natural" Medium Brown with Gold, middle and outer lid
- "The Break Up" Darkest Brown, outer v

I then used a shimmer white from a Benefit Palette I have to high light the inner corners and also the brown bone :)

And I used my new Chi Chi Shimmer Brick on my cheeks :) and also a Pink Blush from a Christmas Edition  Body Shop Palette.

Playboy Bra Collection + Update +Recs??

I'm so un inspired and un motivated by what I should be filling my blog with these days! There's like a tonne of pictures from last weekend, and I really wanted to post them because I love hearing about other people's weekends, but Cristina from BarbieLuvsMac (Who doesn't love her blog!?) shared too much information with bloggers and now some (as in a couple of jealous people!) have turned against her and been saying bad stuff to her, and so she's stopped blogging! :( Devo'd!
 Anyways, so the point is, is I don't want to discuss what I do on weekends, because I know not everyone has the same sort of life style that I do! and some people may be against it, or whatever! Anyways...

I'm obsessed with Playboy Bras!! I know that "Playboy" as a brand may be seen as tacky/slutty or "demoralising" but their bra's fit me so well! I'm a size 8D/DD - depends if there's padding involved ;) - and like seriously, try finding pretty bras that are 8D!! Impossible!! I also think their bra's are kinda cuteee :) So last week I purchased matching bra/undie combo (I know not a very good photo, hard to take photo's of bras!)
Bra $70
Bottoms $30 (Cant believe I paid that for underwear... Dummb!)
I also purchased a bunny kit! haha bit of a impulse buy! It was $49.95 and I just think it's way cute! I loveee going to dress up/pimps n hoes parties, so this kit might come in handy :)
And here's my lovely collection of my other playboy bras :)
I know it's weird having a post about bras! It's not like I'm going to post like all my bras haha last post I told you about how my brother borrowed a camera from school? Well I took a picture of the black/white stripped playboy combo, and got creative and tried taking pictures of the other ones :) I was a tad bored!

My mate had an assignment to just take lots of photo's of anything! He took like a bazillion of myself, my mum, my cat, his friends, streets, buildings, EVERYTHING, got annoying! But yeah here's a photo of me he took, it didn't really turn out how he wanted it to though lol
He's gay by the way, so he's very creative and he see's girls differently and everything! He's basically like a sister, but a very judgemental one!

I have alot of Clarins Skincare Product Reviews coming up! I'm obsessed with their Hydra Matte Lotion :)

But I'm looking for a good rec for a hydrating serum! not moisturizer, just serum!

Ohh, and have to show you my new $100 pleather jacket from Miss Shop at Myers :)

OOTD + Rubi Shoes Boo Boo!

Goodmorning! Thank God Its Friday! :) Excited for tomorrow night, I'm planning on wearing those high waist shorts that I pictured in my previous post, but I'm trying to decide how to dress them up! I'm even thinking stockings? It'll be about 12degrees, so it's cold! But I don't think I'm overly keen on stockings/short shorts combo, left alone high waist shorts/stockings combo! Guess I'll man up and deal with the cold haha

Here's an outfit of the day from, yesterday? Or the day before? Uhhh, seems like my days are all running together!! Not a very exciting OOTD, jeans and Dotti military type jacket (last year).
Note the shoes! They're $20 from Rubi Shoes (hella cheap!) but you'd expect them to last atleast one wear, right?
Well they broke in town! When I was walking. Excellent. It was pissing down with rain aswell. I went back to Rubi Shoes (sans receipt) and they were like "What do you expect me to do about that?" I just blankly stared and asked for the Customer Service number and left.
I mean, I'd worn them once, as in that day. And they broke? And the SA was like "They're $20..." and I'm like Yes, But they should last more than 3 hours!

I'm a student, I don't have money to just buy another pair, and why the fuck would I want another pair of shitty shoes that are possibly going to break on me? ARE YOU KIDDING!

I've actually had like a black pair from Rubi Shoes before, for work (waitressing), which is walking up and down and up and down etc, and they never broke! After a few months of wearing them for 20 hours per week, my toe did start to make a hole, but like the sole didn't just rip off!

So over it, but I will be ringing up and complaining. They should have a better policy.

Look how crazy wavy the rain made my hair haha
I have a love/hate relationship with winter. It'd be more love/love if I had my lisence! I know, I could've had it about 3 years ago, I'm slack!

Has anyone been dissatisified with customer service/a product/company policy and complained??

If I do call up Rubi Shoes Customer Service, I think it's because I'm being spitefull, I mean honestly I really don't care that a $20 pair of shoes broke within 3 hours, it's just that I had to walk around town in them and to school! It's the "principle" of the matter haha or whatever the saying is!

High Waist Shorts + Favourite Cheek Combo + Favourite Foundation Combo + Favourite Oil Blotting Sheets

I have been going into town (clubbing? don't know what people over seas call it!) every weekend, and it seriously wrecks me !! I'm one of those people who start getting ready at 5pm, Pre Drinks at 7pm at friends, Town by 11pm, and I won't get home until 10am the next morning!! Blaaa, so I spend the weekend recovering instead of doing my homework or blogging :(

BUT I've managed to finish a whole term in school! I'm so proud of myself, as you may have notice I start things, but never really finish them!! I was doing 4 subjects, but I dropped Maths, so now I'm doing 3, the good news is is that I'm aceing them :D

If you read my last post, I was explaining how my friend dropped my camera into a mug of water and I had to get another one, but the new one turned everything green! I pretty much refuse to use it because I don't like the green tinge, but my brother brought home this all hi tech and spesh camera from school, amd omg if he knows I've been using it he's gonna cut sick haha
I took this photo with the camera that was dropped into the mug of water LOL as you can see it works, but with like a special effect-y type look (reminds me of the special settings like Sepia, etc) I turned the dropped-in-water-camera on last week and it kinda works! So I;m gonna take it out this weekend and take some mad photos!

I bought some really cute high waist shorts yesterday from Supre. I know that some people think that Supre is tacky, but quite frankly it's the only store with my size! I know that I look chubby in pictures and stuff, but yeah at Supre I'm at size 3xs in everything, and there's always beautiful clothes in Globalize but THEY NEVER FIT! It's so frustrating.
Anyways, so here are the shortttsss *drum roll*
 They were only $35. I'm going to wear them out this Saturday night, I'll take loaddssss of pictures (on mu wicked cool water-stuffed camera) and I'll upload them :) But I'm going to ask my friends first, cos like I mean I'd be cool with them posting pictures of me on websites, buuutttt, I'll ask just incase they're funny about it!

Usually I don't have much time to put much on my cheeks at all, and I've never really layered different blushes or bronzers, usually it's either blush, blush and high light, or just my MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle !! But lately I've been using MAC bronzer in Refined Golden and NARS blush in Deep Throat.
I apply the MAC bronzer first (I always shove a bit on my t zone, but not much cos it has small glitter pigments!!) and then I apply the NARS blushh!! It looks amazing, if I do say so myself :P I'll do an FOTD when I have a decent camera! The bronzer looks dark, it is, but if you apply it with a light hand and slowly build up it's absolutely AMAZING! I'm an NC20 (albiiiii) for reference.

The Body Shop Oil Blotters have been my saviour for yyears. I'm obsessed, no joke, OBSESSED. I've tried every single oil blotter out there, and these are just amazing.
So you could imagine how freaked out I was when I rocked up to the Body Shop with only about 10 sheets left and a big weekend ahead, and they told me they were to be DISCONTINUTED!
Luckily, the assistant was miss-informed, the other oil blotters (one with powder and the plain one without powder) were being discontinued! PHEW!
I have an oily nose (no, not tzone, just nose!) and instead of layering powder to get that horrible cakey look, not to mention that after 12 hours of dancing you get that horrible orangey tinge? well instead of that, I just used an oil blotter every 2-4hours, and touch up with my MAC compact every 6hours!! Love Love Love Love Love Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love LoveLove Love Love Love <33. They're only $4.95 as well! MAC oil blotters are what, like $20 - $30!?

It's Winter in Adelaide right now, and with a new season comes a new foundation routine! I haven't changed up my powder - I love my MAC Select/Sheer Powder in NC20 - but I continually switch my liquid foundations!! I was using Clinique Superfit for most of the Summer, but for Winter I've switched to Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation in Ivory.
It's not really "switching" because I have used this for about 2 years almost, on and off! I always get compliments using this foundation, and it's absolutely perfect! Looks flawless, and stays put!!
It stays put, yes I just said that was  pro, but removing it takes a tab more effort than my other foundations, I just have to repeat my cleansing (Cetaphil) once more, and I always make sure I use my Clarins Toner afterwards to make sure eveyrthing's removed!
Also, the colour range is dismal. It has about 5-6 shades, I would like to go to the second shade (I'm the lightest, Ivory, at the moment) but it's too orange! It's a fab foundation, but they need to expand their shade selection!
I'm going to do a separate post about the Clinique + MAC vs Rimmel + MAC foundation routine!!

I've so missed blogging, and honestly want to keep posting!! Ohhh, and incase my followers think I've forgotten them - I haven't!! I've still been reading blogs, I just haven't been commenting often because my computer is so slow!! I have a brother and with that comes with downloading music, and other stuff. Not cool!! Ewww. I should probably delete that from this post, but I won't haha
