Toni & Guy: Nourish Reconstruction Mask | Review

I have a sin to confess... I tease my hair pretty much every day. It's so bad for my hair, I know, but I can't help it! To achieve a decent bun for dance, I first have to pull my hair back tightly, tease the thin hair of the ponytail, wrap it around, put a bun net on and stick a heap of bun pins in it. Then at the end of the night I have to brush it all out. Not only that, until today I couldn't even remember the last time I used a hair treatment! Now that I'm writing this I realise the torture I put my poor, unfortunate hair through. It was time to respect my hair and give it a little pamper. To do this I decided to try Toni & Guy's 'Nourish Reconstruction Mask'.

Lush: Rock Star Soap | Review

When I visited Lush last week to pick up my Halloween products, the lovely ladies working there offered me a sample of their 'Rock Star Soap'. Who can say no to a free sample?!

Lush Halloween Haul | 2015

Last week I made a trip to my nearest Lush store and picked up their 2015 Halloween range. When I visited them earlier this month all of their Halloween products were sold out, proving how popular these products are. Here is what I was able to score!

Orange and Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes | Halloween Recipe

Looking for something to bake for a Halloween party or even just a yummy chocolate recipe? These cupcakes will hit the spot. Chocolate and orange has got to be one of my favourite flavour combinations to ever exist. Bake these cupcakes and then kick it up a notch with spooky decorating for Halloween. Now I have to say I’m not much of a baker, so you’ll have to excuse my decorating. But practice makes perfect!

Over the past few weeks I've seen other bloggers go crazy for Essence's lip liners. Naturally I had to check them out! I was able to purchase 5 of the 6 colours available at Priceline in Australia. Unfortunately 'In The Nude' was sold out at each store I went to, but I will definitely be purchasing it when it is back in stock. These lip liners are great!

Adopt Don't Shop | Personal Musings

Adopt Don't Shop

For the longest time, whenever someone I watch on YouTube mentions (even in passing) that they are thinking of getting a dog I see that the comments are filled with people begging the person to adopt from a shelter instead of "shopping" for one. I always found it frustrating because I was sure that people were aware of the options they have when it comes to bringing a new pet into their home. If someone wanted to rescue a dog, they would get one. If they didn't want to and decided to go with a breeder, then that's what they would do. This past week my mentality has changed.

10 Things to Do When You're Feeling Under the Weather

I always struggle to keep good health in the change over from Winter to Spring. After a busy week, I finally had the chance to slow down and that's when it hit me. There's nothing I hate more than a fuzzy head, sore throat and a general run down feeling. Here are some things I like to do when I'm not feeling my best:

Maroon 5 Concert | Outfit of the Day

To celebrate my sister's birthday we went to Maroon 5's "Maroon V Tour". Here is my outfit from earlier this week! 

Checked Chiffon Shirt - Supré
Ribbed Crop T-Shirt - Topshop
Leggings with Zips - Supré
Zip Boot - Rubi Shoes
Black Clutch - Strandbags

I believe that none of the clothing items are still being sold, but I'm sure there are similar items out there. I bought the bag a few years ago, but again there would be something similar.

For my make up I used Rimmel's Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in 111 paired with a soft grey and brown eye. I also used Maybelline's Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara. I wore my hair in a high messy ponytail using Fudge's Salt Spray to give my hair some texture. 

Maroon 5's concert was fantastic! They performed a lot of their big hits and are great entertainers. I really enjoyed myself.
