July Beauty Favourites

I haven’t done a monthly favourites in a while – mainly because I don’t change up my beauty routine all too often. Recently though, between my new purchases from Sydney and the change in weather I have found some new gems and rediscovered some old gems. This month has been absolutely freezing and my skin […] Read more…

Learning to Sew

I’ve always been a creative person – many of my weekends throughout my childhood were spent drawing, creating and crafting – but I never really learnt to sew. Every now and again I gave it a go – mainly when I had to for Girl Guides or for school. Recently I’d been thinking that’d I’d like […] Read more…

Hand Cream for Winter

I’ve only recently become interested in hand creams – before I discovered this Antipodes one I hadn’t really found one I got along with. This winter my skin has been even more dry than usual so I decided to put some more hand creams to the test and come up with a little ‘routine’ that […] Read more…

This post may as well be titled ‘A Love Letter to Benefit and its Eyebrow Products and Services’ as without Benefit my brows just wouldn’t look as good as they do.

There’s been a bit of a trend on Pinterest and Instagram recently that I absolutely love: painted toy animals.

Fresh Flowers + Painted Bottom DIY Vase

Occasionally when I’m out running errands I like to pick up a small bunch of flowers to bring home, always forgetting that I don’t actually own a single vase! Usually I just grab the nearest glass or empty jar and fill it up with water to create a makeshift vase but this time I thought […] Read more…

Our-First-Home

Our First Home

We’ve been watching the housing market for the last couple of years and we’ve been seriously looking for houses for about 6 or so months. Between the changes on loans imposed by the Reserve Bank, the crazy Auckland house market and the general state of the economy there has certainly been a lot of ups and […] Read more…

DIY Nail Polish Remover Pot

Nail Polish Remover Pots seem to be very in right now – nearly every beauty brand seems to be releasing one. I really wanted to give one a go but I’m a bit fussy about my nail polish remover so I didn’t want to spend money on a product that could potentially be more gimmicky […] Read more…

Sydney-Haul

Sydney Haul

A couple of weeks ago I headed to Sydney for a little getaway and while I was there to visit family I made time for a little beauty shopping. Before I went I made myself a list of items I really wanted and I’m proud to say I didn’t stray too far from it. Everything […] Read more…
