Style. Jubilee.

Queens Jubilee-RED



Queen's Jubilee-BLUE



Queen's Jubilee-WHITE


Are you all completely aware of my obsession with all things British? WELL I AM. Old Queeny Poo is having her Diamond Jubilee this weekend and I am on board (from afar) because although as an Australian the British Royals can be a tricky subject, I gotta give props to a lady that is pretty much never seen without a blazer and a fancy hat.

So well done on 60 years Liz.

Garnier Pure Active Anti Spots Tinted Roll On. 
Long name right? Well this little roll on is amazing and I am completely addicted to it. Do you find traditional concealers to be too cakey and thick for under your eyes? Same! This is a liquid that dries to a smooth powder and there is absolutely no cakeyness. I know this isn't marketed as a concealer, but since my pal Brianna put me on to it last year, I haven't stopped using it. I use this for any areas I want to conceal and lighten and anywhere I have a little hyper pigmentation. Give it a go, it will rock your socks. (oh dear, I sound like a sales person don't I?)

Life. Busy of late...



I am sitting at my desk freezing. It is so, so, so cold here where I am! It's friday (thank God!) and I am psyched about the weekend. I have been incredibly busy of late (I know, you've probably read the same sentence on 10 other blogs today right?) and exhausted. After my busy work day, I can barely manage making dinner and moving from the couch to bed. Full time work must get easier than this right? I hate to think that half the world is walking around this tired. Despite the cold and the exhaustion, I am really enjoying my last prac! It has been challenging but also loads of fun and most of the staff are being very friendly and welcoming. There always seems to be a couple that look down on prac teachers, but I try not to let it bother me.
I am teaching outside of my subject areas this time, which has been interesting! Next week I take on an art class which thrills me no end. I am going to run a unit about graphic design and Photoshop, which you guys know I am obsessed with.
This 7 weeks is really important to me for so many reasons, but mainly because at the end of it I can get some teaching work and finally (FINALLY) make some money. Right now, money means LONDON so I can't wait to start working towards leaving the country in 6 (!!) months. It has also been a huge challenge for me and my anxiety. The school I am at is at the top of a very narrow and winding road that has always terrified me, even with someone else driving. Having to be up here 5 days a week for 7 weeks meant that I really had to just get over the fear. I got a lift for the first week or so, and am now driving myself! It wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be, and it feels awesome to be able to conquer my own mountain.

I suppose I better go and get some work done, or maybe find some sun and defrost my toes!

Bourjois Delice de Soleil
I love love love this bronzer. It is perfect for my skin tone, goes on like a dream and smells so yum. We hear a lot about the chocolate bronzer from Bourjois but personally, I like this better. I got this in January and as you can see, there is hardly any gone from the pan. I would say this is good for medium skin tones, but can go on light if you like. I use it mainly as a contour and to warm up my skin and it works brilliantly. There is a slight shimmer in the pan, but really does not transfer to the skin, which I like.

Style. Floriade.

My garden is blooming at the moment; hundreds of pastel purple and neon pink flowers surround my house. It is making me all floral obsessed-I wish everything in my wardrobe was floral print! In fact, I don't think I own anything floral at the moment, which is odd. Oh well, I guess I will have to make do with looking at these loverly photos.

I am a bit obsessed with dark nails at the moment, so this deepest blue from Butter London is really hitting the spot. The colour is Royal Navy, and I suck at applying it. I wish I had loads of copper and rose gold jewellery to wear with this, I think it would look amazing!

Pretty. Currently Loving #2

Now that winter is creeping up on us here in Australia, I am all about keeping my skin hydrated. I swear by sweet almond oil for any dry patches on my face, or anywhere else for that matter. I have dermatitis inside my ears (Ewww?) so I use this daily to help clear it up. Most health food stores would sell this, maybe even some pharmacies. I dip a cotton tip into the oil and apply to the area. If you have any dry and itchy skin complaints, try it out!

Pretty. Currently Loving #1

This week, whilst I am doing my favourite thing (teaching. Yeah I am a nerd) I thought it would be nice to share a few of my favourite things with you all. So here is the first of a few.

Bourjois Rose Exclusif
I go through fairly long stages where I cannot stand lipgloss or lipstick, and sometimes even balm (weirdo?) but when my sister palmed this off to me last week I was a bit excited! This is one of those PH response products that is meant to be a different colour on everyone, and who knows if that is true. This goes a very pretty rosy pink on me and I like it! Although really sticky, the colour and gloss payoff makes it ok in my eyes. Plus, the packaging is lovely and chic. Check out my pics, and maybe give it a go yourself and tell me what you think!
