Flashback Friday #2

Today I bring you the second instalment of Flashback Friday. This post is going to feature my lovely friend Brodie who was my rock through out high school. She will be featuring in a lot of in this series. When we took heaps of pictures back then, I was not the best at or knowledgeable with make up. Brodie has a blog that she is just starting it would be awesome if you could follow her here or here.

There is also another picture on my look book from that night here which I have not posted new pictures for years. 

Once again can we please talk about all the eye liner I have on! I look so completely emo. This much eye liner makes your eyes look smaller! Why did I not realise this at the time. Also this much eye liner ends up smudging and going all over your face!! This is something I wish I could have taught my younger self. 

It also seriously looks like I'm not wearing anything on my lips and checks. Just freaking eye liner. For anyone just starting out make up please at least put a little blush or bronzer on! If you are a pale and all the one same dull colour you look DEAD! Give some life to your face!! In the look book version of this picture I have on some lipstick thank god! 

Then the superhero tattoos on our chest! God it makes me laugh so much. I think we really thought out where to put the tattoo! I remember this photo was taken the night before the short stack concert. I am thinking we were over our Jonas Brothers phase if this is how we did our make up and dressed. 

Got any pictures that you loved at the time but now you wonder what you were thinking?

Lust Have It

Last month after getting my Lust Have It box I decided that I would end my subscription. The box wasn't that bad don't get me wrong I am enjoying some of the products like the hand sanitizer and the hair bands. However I don't feel like I wanted to continue. For one I am going overseas at the end of the year and I really need to save and since I wasn't completely happy with Lust Have It, it was one logical think to stop paying for. Also the main thing that really stopped me from continuing was that they didn't tell me they were taking the money out of my account so I had already moved all my money to my saving making the first attempt of payment fail. If I had known it was coming out I would have left the amount in my account and most likely still be subscribed. I just became annoyed with the process and since I was already getting disappointed each month I made the choice to stop getting Lust Have It.

I am still subscribed to Bellabox and I will maybe continue with my subscription next year when I am working full time. If I use up a lot of my samples.

Little Update

Hey all
I thought I would let you all know that I haven't blog that much recently as I was having computer troubles. My laptop would not stay turned on unless I was pushing the charger in (and only then if I did it in a certain way. It was more sensitive than me!). I now have a new laptop as a university student I need one for my studying and with a 3,000 word assignment due next week I am glad to have a working one.

Having my laptop not working also has stopped me from exporting and uploading new videos. So hopefully my YouTube will have new videos soon. Keeping in mind though that that with a new laptop means I have lost the software I was using. Fingers crossed that I can get it back!

Spotlight Sunday #8 Hydraluron

Hey lovelies

I'm back again with another review for you. Today's spotlight product is the Hydraluron which I recently Hauled. I haven't had it that long yes, but I am already amazed about the fast results of this product! It is definitely worth the hype which it has received. I have used it on my face a few times which I felt my skin feel soft and hydrated not something too different from my lovely rosehip oil. I also tried this product on my hand and this is where I saw unbelievably amazing results. I have dermatitis on my right hand not as gross as it sounds. However my hand was looking bright red, bumpy, flakey and like it was going to scab up. So I decided to used it on my hand one night when I was putting it on my face. The next day my hand actually didn't look like I had dermatitis at all, my hand had completely gone back to a normal colour and was not scabbing at all. I still had some bumps but they are slowly going to away more each night I use this. I wish I had taken a picture of my hand the night before I first tried it on my hand I just wasn't expecting such amazing results. So if your skin is seriously lacking hydration and is really dry please try this. It can be used by itself or under moisturiser. I am seriously loving this product right now. I haven't decided if it will be a staple in my facial routine but I know that I will always keep this on hand for when any of my skin is dry.

P.S If you are one drying medication like me you will love this so much as it works fast and helps your skin if you accidentally skip one night/day of moisturising!

Makeup Wipe Monday #3

I just want to start with saying how hyped up these make up wipes are. I think it is hard to watch an empties video on YouTube without seeing them pop up. I really like the brand simple and have blogged about them before (make up remover) so I was excited to try the wipes.
These are just flat wipes which is not my favourite but they are a thick material which makes up for that. They are reasonably moist and I would go as far to say that they take off a full face of make up. There is a slight scent to them but it's not a fragrance which is good for sensitive skin. Simple aim to be usable  for sensitive skin and I agree these wipes don't Irritate my skin at all.

Would I buy them again? Yes I would. However for every time I need make up wipes as these are about $7 for a pack of 25. Which isn't that expensive however for a poor uni student it's on the pricier side of wipes. However Simple is always on sale somewhere.

Spotlight Sunday #7 Organi Organic Honey Peel

It is almost gone but you can slightly see it is a gel. 

So if you have been reading my blog you know I am currently on medication that dries out my skin. This product is amazing at getting rid of dry skin. You literally just rub the gel into your skin and you feel the dead skin forming into balls. It sounds so gross but your skin feels so much softer and smoother after. I like to do this at least once a week and so does my boyfriend! I love doing this before a big night out as your make up applies and looks a lot better. It can also be used as a slight spot treatment as it helps to get rid of dryness on break outs. It also claims to hypo-allergenic and I'm down with that.

The only negatives about this product is this the price and availability. I paid $60 for this product but that was on sale while my sister (who also loves it!) paid almost double  at over $100. Also I have never been one to pay that much on skincare but I just love it and it is almost gone. There is a high chance of me buying this product again.

This there a skin peel you like?

Flash Back Friday #1

Okay here is a picture of me back in the day. I think was taken in 2010. I think I look different now and my make up sense is different now.

Eye shadow-
I used to put so much white eye shadow on all over my lid and in the inner corner. I rarely wear white at all any more now as I don't own a nice white since the one I used for this day was very old and need to be thrown out. I still like the look of the white in the inner corner but I hardly do this either. Along with the eye shadow this is just one colour! I enjoy using a lot more colours now and blending in different ones. This photo for taken slightly before I became addicted to YouTube beauty videos.

Eye liner-
This was back in the day where liquid eye liner was scary and too tricky for me to attempt. Don't get me wrong I owned one but it was in a pot and I could not do it for the life of me! Also this is back when I put A LOT of the blackest black eye liner in my water line! It made my very small eyes look even smaller. Anyone know what I was thinking? I have definitely changed my style of eye liner since then. I actually attempt liquid I am still not amazing at it like my friend Brodie. Also I enjoy using white or nude eye liner in my waterline to open my eyes.

I do not have anything on my lips here! I don't always wear lip stuff these days however I tend to actually wear lip stick or a bit of colour now. Well at least before I went on medication and my lips became super super chapped!

I am pretty sure I don't have anything on my cheeks here. Back then I did not have the love for blush that I have now. My mother actually told me I had to put something on my cheeks back then. Which is pretty funny as it made my face look so bland without blush or bronzer.

Also just thought I would tell you I happen to he wearing an vintage top from the 80's shoulder pads and all. hahaha

Priceline Haul! 40% off Skincare Sale

So there was the sale at Priceline....
I was failed pretty hard at controlling myself. I was planning a maximum of $50 I spent almost $70.

This is a picture of the complete collection.

Sukin Antioxidant Eye Serum:
I love the Sukin brand they are Australian and Organic so is a brand one I want to use more of. The eye serum is something I really wanted to try as my Medication is making me get little lines under my eyes so an eye cream and serum I feel will Hydrate and make under my eyes hot look so horrid. The price was originally $19.99 and I got it for $11.99.

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Eye Cream:
Once again i got this eye cream because I have been worried about under my eyes. Burt's Bees is also a natural brand which is something that has been interesting me lately. 99% of the cream is natural which
a go since it was reduced from $39.99 to 23.99. I love me a bargain.  If you look in the picture it comes out like piped icing or cream! My friend Maddy Recommended this to me also.

Hydraluron Moisture Booster
There is been a lot of positive reviews and hype about this product. Once again I got this because of my dry skin and Thought it would be good to to help keep it hydrated while I am on my drying out medication. I am really excited to try this and maybe some of the other products from the brand if I think they are as good the hype.

Hydratherapy Replenishing Eye Cream
This eye cream I have never heard anything about it really an impulse buy. I saw the price online and decided when I went in I had to have it. I am hoping this is a reasonable eye cream however it doesn't bother me if it isn't the best as I am happy to just try it. I paid about $4 for this so I am interested in if their is any results.

Rosken Skin Repair High Potency Vitamin E Cream
I wanted to get this as Vitamin E is amazing for your skin and is good for healing skin. I am thinking of using this on my face and body to help with stretch marks, dry patches and scares. My father last year got some pretty serious burns and Vitamin E creams was a huge part of the healing process.

Swisspers Cucumber 5 refreshing facial Cleansing Wipes
I am always looking for make up wipes, These were .89 cents so I couldn't say no!

Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes
I have never tried these wipes but they have had hype on YouTube for a while now so I thought I would give them a try so I can review them for you!
