Spring Strobing

I always seem to be a little late on the hottest trends, and the "colour shifty highlights" trend was no exception. Despite the fact that these might not be in fashion any more, I'm glad I waited out the hype to purchase the Zoeva Spring Spectrum Highlighting Palette. I was most wary of how "unwearable" colourful highlighters would be, but thankfully - Zoeva's palette is pretty wearable! It contains four shades, and from what I hear, is a really great, cheaper alternative to the Kat Von D Alchemist palette!

Printing Photos with Printiki

Despite being someone who is constantly taking photos of my food and my dog (and other random crap), I don't remember the last time I actually printed any of those photos. I think being part of a generation where photos are so easily accessible on your phone and online, I've lost the appreciation for actually having physical photos on display! When Printiki reached out to me and offered to print some of my photos - I jumped at the chance and thought it would be a great opportunity to jazz up my room and have my favourite photos on display!

Like Music to My Ears #8

I'm back from my mini holiday! It was really fun and I had a great time in Melbourne! Also, I was more successful at skiing this time around! I did really suck the first day and stacked it a few more times than I should have, but the second day was much better and I actually enjoyed it! I thought it was about due time for a music post though because I don't know about you guys, but when I travel I listen to a lot of music! It was a bit of a road trip to the ski fields! ;) Also, there's been a lot of new music lately, and more new music to come so probably expect another of these in the next month or two. Let's dive in!

Monthly Favourites // June 2017

I can't quite believe June is over and I'm writing another monthly favourites! I feel like I'm always doing these because I've been posting less frequently and quite sporadically (which I do apologise for! Y'know though, life gets in the way!), but I try to always do a monthly faves post! ...Which results in every third or fourth post being a favourites haha oops! I'm hoping to get back into the swing of blogging now that I'm on uni holidays - but tomorrow I fly off to Melbourne for a week so I probably won't post then :P . Bear with me! I'll be going skiing this weekend which I'm both excited and nervous for - I've only skied once before and I was a wreck, so here's hoping this time goes a bit better! As for the rest of my time in Melbourne, I'm not sure what I'll be doing actually! Still need to plan some stuff out but I'm open to any recommendations any Melbournians have! Anyway, let's dive into the favourites!

Battle of the Anti-Fatigue Foundations

You could call it a coincidence, but within the last couple of months, both Rimmel and Bourjois have reformulated their Wake Me Up and Healthy Mix foundations respectively. I was very kindly sent both of them to review, and it didn't take me long to realise they were both claiming very similar things! Firstly, they're both "anti-fatigue" foundations that contain vitamins which are supposedly better for your skin! I'm not so sure about the actual efficacy of vitamins in foundations - I don't know about you but I don't really wear foundation for its skincare benefits. But anyway, as foundations - they're very similar formulas so I thought it would be worthwhile comparing them!
