Low Budget Makeup Haul!


Hi guys! For some reason I'm not as excited about buying new makeup lately, although I will always love applying makeup and wearing it. Even though new releases are not catching my attention, I still have to re-purchase back-ups of my staple makeup items, so here's a very budget friendly drugstore brand makeup haul, where the aim was to stock up on my every day eye makeup items. I also got some extra stuff I needed while I was there. Both Chemist Warehouse and Priceline were having sales, so everything here was at a bargain price!




Chemist Warehouse had 50% off Maybelline (yassss!) so I picked up my fave eyeliner, the Maybelline Masterliner in Black. This was $5.99, usually $12.50. I was going to get two of them, but then I saw the Maybelline boxed Kit for $7.00 which contained a Masterliner eyeliner,  Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara and Eyelash Curler! Just a dollar more and you get two bonus items... score!

I also spotted the Maybelline Master Precise Skinny eyeliner and Maybelline Brow Precise Micro Pencil, both of which I've never tried, but I thought at half price, now is the best time to give them a go! Also, it's really hard to get defined wings with the Masterliner as the end rounds out after a few uses, so hopefully the Skinny pencil comes in handy there.

I spent $26.37 at Chemist Warehouse and the receipt tells me I saved $38.53 (woo hoo!). At first I was like, whaaaaaa? because everything was 50% off, but then I saw the boxed Kit was originally $24.95, down to $7.00. Bitch can shop.

The eyebrow pencil I swear by, Ardell's Pro Brow Mechanical Pencil was actually on special (this rarely happens) at Priceline, so I obviously got two. Also, it's not stocked at my local Priceline and can be hard to find, so this was a no-brainer.

I can't find my makeup pencil sharpener at the moment and all my nude lipliners are super blunt, so instead of doing the normal thing and buying a new sharpener, I bought two new nude Essence Soft Contouring lipliners instead (Nude Painting and Lost In Love). Don't judge! Bargain buy recommendation alert! You can't go wrong with Essence lipliners; they perform well, the formula is great and they are only $2.00 each. Get on this, people! I also picked up an Essence Kajal eyeliner while I was perusing the Essence stand, because why not?

Movie Review: HEREDITARY




{SPOILER-FREE}

Starring: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro and Ann Dowd
Director: Ari Aster
Genre: Horror/Supernatural
Rating: MA15+
Australian Release Date: 07/06/2018

Hi guys! Last night I was lucky enough to see the Adelaide Preview screening of American horror/supernatural film HEREDITARY. There has been a lot of hype surrounding this movie, so I was super keen to see it for myself, and I have to say, it lived up to the hype, and then some. Horror is not my favourite genre, but this disturbing movie was amazing. Everyone in my screening was enthralled and you could have heard a pin drop at one point! This movie is still playing over and over again in my mind, and I think it will be with me for some time. 

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited as it slowly destroys everything they know.

Toni Collette, in the lead role of Annie, gives a brave, raw performance that's believable and even harrowing at times. She really gives this her all. In fact, the acting across the board is excellent; look out for Milly Shapiro who is so creepy as Charlie, Annie's daughter. Hereditary was written and directed by Ari Aster in his directorial debut, and honestly I can't wait to see what he does next, if this film is anything to go by. It's so impressive for a first time effort. The musical score was also pretty spot-on, perfectly building tension and giving a gloomy atmosphere of foreboding.



This is a spoiler-free write up, as I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but there are some chilling events in this film that have to be seen to be believed. Hereditary slowly builds the tension, but as things go from bad to worse, it had me hooked and engrossed. It's chilling, scary, disturbing and above all, unsettling. Go see it, Hereditary is worth the hype.

Fun Fact: On Anzac Day, a movie theatre in Western Australia accidentally played a trailer for Hereditary before a screening of the family-friendly film Peter Rabbit, no doubt freaking out a bunch of kids and angering their parents. Oops!

Littlewood Agapanthus Farm Garden Party!




Hi guys! Recently I had the pleasure of attending a delightful Garden Party at Littlewood Agapanthus Farm, located at Littlehampton in the Adelaide Hills. In April last year, new owners John and Tracey Koumi took over the Farm, together with Tracey's son Sam and his wife Jenna. Their passion for the beauty of the gardens is evident, and they've really breathed new life into South Australia's largest Agapanthus Farm. Having explored the farm in an informative walking tour and relaxed in the surrounds for an afternoon, I can say this is a stunningly picturesque location that would be perfect for fully-catered events, weddings and functions. There are lakes, birdhouses, garden seats and quaint walking paths, not to mention 100,000 agapanthus plants across 60 gorgeous acres!







On arrival, we were offered a glass of champagne, and honestly, who am I to say no? Despite it being a chilly day, my mortal enemies the rain and wind stayed away, setting us up for a highly enjoyable afternoon. There were heat lamps dotted about, providing some cosy spots to chat and socialise. Fairy lights added to the charm, and the wine barrels were the perfect touch on a lush green hilltop. Under cover, there were chairs and tables with pretty floral vases, a bar, a live band (yassss!) and a large table with an impressive gourmet spread to delight the eyes and the tastebuds!








Let's talk food! The catering was provided by Sticks & Stone Events, and it was outstanding. On the main grazing table were a selection of nuts, olives, crackers, crispbreads and a delicious array of gourmet cheeses. Perfect for a cheese lover like me! There were also platters of deli meats (so yummy!) and a colourful display of healthy fresh fruits. The pineapple, oh my! Throughout the day, waiters brought around Sliders (I missed out, but hubby nabbed one) and the yummiest crispy Pizza pieces, with a variety of different toppings. Such friendly and courteous staff too, they were an absolute pleasure.







The beverages were delicious too. I sampled nearly every drink variety (purely for you guys of course, I knew I'd be writing this!) and I was not disappointed. I'm going to put them in preference order for you, from knock-your-socks-off delish to still-pretty-yummy. The Limoncello Cocktail is first, because of its impeccable flavour combination plus bonus points for being highly photogenic. Then the Rose because it was fruity, pink and pretty, followed by the Champagne because bubbly is such a special occasion drink so it was apt. Finally, the White wine, which was still pretty yummy, as mentioned above, because something had to come last, that's how lists work! I didn't try the Red wine despite loving it, because I didn't want my teeth to get discoloured {#truthbomb}. There was also plenty of lemon water available which hubby informed me was refreshing, lol.




'Agapanthus', also known as the African Lily, comes from the Greek words for love (agape) and flower (anthos). These pretty babies thrive in South Australia's climate and can even survive in extreme conditions. If you have a dog that has a daily three hour nap on your agapanthus, said agapanthus may be heard defiantly stating "Is that all you've got?!". These plants produce purple and white flowers in Spring and Summer, but happily show off vibrant green leaves all year round. Littlewood boasts 12 varieties of Agapanthus, including the Guilfoyle, Dutch Blue Giant, Perpetual Peace and the common Standard Praecox Orientalis. As well as being ideal for catered events, weddings or picnics with friends, Littlewood continue to run the Nursery where you can buy your own Agapanthus plants!






Our parting gift was a super-cute Miniature Blue Agapanthus (see photo below) which I gave to my Dad for babysitting our son all afternoon. He loves plants and definitely has a green thumb. Despite the agapanthus being notoriously impossible to kill, I still trust Dad with my 'lil aggie-baby more than I do myself! We had such a fabulous time and will definitely be returning when the flowers are blooming! 





You can visit Littlewood Agapanthus Farm at 69 Easlea Road, Littlehampton, SA.
Open Friday - Monday 10am-4pm, with other times by appointment.

NEW SHADES in the Sally Hansen Color Therapy Range!*



Hi guys! Today I'll be featuring some of the exciting new shades that Sally Hansen have released in their Color Therapy range! I've been sent eight beautiful shades that range from nude to perfect-for-Autumn deep wine red, with a bit of sparkle thrown into the mix too! The Sally Hansen Color Therapy formula is billed as colour that 'cares while you wear', because it contains nourishing argan oil that moisturises so your nails can become healthier whilst still looking fabulous!

The new shades are:

~ 210 Re-Nude
~ 192 Sunrise Salutation
~ 150 Steely Serene
~ 194 Burnished Bronze
~ 142 In My Element
~ 370 Unwine'd
~ 402 Plum Euphoria
~ 372 Wine Therapy

Now I do love these nail polishes, from the formula to the colour range and even the design of the brush (nice and flat for ease of application) so much so that I included them in last year's Mother's Day Gift Guide. So far I've worn three shades out of this new lot; Sunrise Salutation, Burnished Bronze and my absolute favourite, Unwine'd. Let's take a look!

Beauty Empties!




Hi guys! My empties (beauty products I've finished) have been building up and I want to throw them out, but obviously I can't until after I've blogged about them, so here goes!

Burt's Bees Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleansing Towelettes ~ or wipes as we call them in the real word! I quite enjoyed the pink grapefruit fragrance and would consider repurchasing these in the future.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin-Clearing Mattifying Toner ~ this was a tad harsh but I am addicted to tea tree products, especially toners (that smell!). The Lush one is gentler, I'd probably get that next.

Bobbi Brown EXTRA Lip Tint ~ this was nice, but the formula was a bit soft. As a result, I went through it quite quickly. I won it, so no plans to buy this in the future.

Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel ~ one of my all time favourite shower gels, I will always re-purchase this when it's available. You can't beat that delicious rosy aroma! I've reviewed it before here.

Oh Deer Sugar (Oh) Mango Sorbet Soda Pop Body Scrub ~ this was so enjoyable, from the fruity fragrance to the soft, creamy yet scrubby formula. My type of scrub, I'll definitely repurchase.

Korres Mango Lip Butter ~ another mango product! These Korres lip butters are delightful and I want to get more in the future, but I have way too many lip balms to get through right now.

Olay Total Effects 7 In 1 Day Cream ~ I used to purchase this over and over as I do love the results, but I've been using up moisturisers from my beauty cupboard lately. I'd love to get back to using this however!

Revlon Colorstay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin in Ivory ~ A Holy Grail foundation for me, but then the formula seemed to change and I started using Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Liquid foundation instead and fell in love with it! I still  use Colorstay when I need a long-lasting face.




Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Bisque ~ another Holy Grail product, see my review here. The absolute best thing I've found for concealing dark under eye circles, I will repurchase again and again.

Lush FUN in Pink ~ this came in the Lush Think Pink Gift hubby bought me. It was extremely soft and creamy and smelled great, but I went through it way too quickly. Will give it a miss.

Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm ~ the best solution to dry, chapped lips, I talked about this in my April Beauty Faves last month. I was kindly sent the Limited Edition Sugar Plum flavour* which comes in Unicorn packaging, check that out here.

GUESS 1981 Fragrance* ~ this perfume has such a feminine, sexy scent that I adore and I'm really bummed I've finished it! I've got a lot of other fragrances to use up however, so I won't be getting a new bottle. I reviewed it here.

Neutrogena Wet Skin Kids Sunscreen Spray ~ My son and I loved this! The spray application meant it was so quick and easy to apply and it soaked in really quickly. No plans to repurchase currently though as we have a few other sunscreens to get through.

Antipodes Hosanna H2O Skin-Plumping Serum ~ I love this so much I featured it in my April Beauty Favourites. I'm currently using my second bottle and will repurchase when it's on sale!

Redken Beach Envy Volume Texturising Conditioner* ~ conditioner take me so long to get through as I can only uses a tiny amount or my hair will go flat (yes, even with a volume conditioner, lol). This was nice, but I've got others in the cupboard to use now.

Rimmel #Insta Fix & Matte Translucent Powder* ~ I love this stuff and have already bought another. I'm a recent convert to translucent powder and now I'm wondering why I didn't try it sooner. I've reviewed it here.

Mecca Beauty Loop Level 1 Box!




Hi guys! Welcome to my super-quick post about the latest round of Mecca Beauty Loop Boxes. I was shocked to receive an email from Mecca recently saying my Level 1 box was ready to be picked up, because I didn't even know I'd qualified. I guess I'd forgotten about this little haul!

The last time I got a Beauty Loop box, I was on Level 2, and here's what was in that box for comparison. The Beauty Loop boxes are rewards based on your spending at Mecca and you can read all about that loyalty program on the Mecca website here.

Let's take a look at what's inside my Level 1 box!



LEVEL 1: Fresh Skin and Big Lashes

Eve Lom Cleanser
This sample consists of a 5ml sachet and an accompanying muslin cloth. You're meant to massage a small amount into dry skin to loosen makeup, dirt and excess oil. Then you dampen the muslin cloth and use a circular motion to remove traces of makeup residue and cleanser.

Grown Alchemist Age Repair Moisturiser
This is a 1.5ml sachet of Age Repair Moisturiser that contains phyto-peptide and white tea extract. It's supposed to noticeably restore cellular structure, boost radiance and visibly reduce the depth and appearance of wrinkles.

Mecca Max Pout Pop Lipstick
This is a mini-sized bullet of high pigment, creamy 'super-glam' lipstick from Mecca's own brand, Mecca Max. I got the pink shade Party Police, but I'm not sure if this colour is in every L1 box, or the shades are varied. Unlike the full-size version, these minis have a screw-top design instead of the pop-up packaging.

Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara
This is a 2.5g mini-tube of TroubleMaker mascara from Urban Decay that promises 13.7 (lol, specific) times the lash volume and lashes that are super fat, super long and sex proof. Apparently it's meant to hold up in hot and heavy situations, which they 'tested themselves.' Many thanks for that visual, Urban Decay.


Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY on Instagram, where you can WIN 1 of 3 Natura Siberica Mother's Day prize packs! Enter here!

Lakes Bar Launch Party!




Hi guys! I was so thrilled to attend the Launch Party of the revamped Lakes Bar on Saturday night! It's located within the Lakes Hotel at West Lakes, right on the lakefront. The views across the water are stunning, and as the sun set, this was the place to be!



Hartway pumped out the tunes at just the right volume; no shouting to be heard or straining to hear conversations required. The live music really set the tone for an amazing evening filled with eats, drinks and beats!




I met the lovely ladies from Mercy Me Marketing who were so friendly and welcoming! I also met a few new folks and relished the opportunity to chat and get to know them.

Let's talk drinks! We were treated to an impressive array of alcoholic drinks on the night. There were beers, wines and gin cocktail/mixers (made from SA produced gins) to choose from. My recommendation if you're visiting Lakes Bar is to try their gin cocktails, you won't be disappointed! You can choose to mix and match from a list of garnishes or go with their recommended garnish combinations, it's up to you! Even though the bar area was quite full, I was always served quickly and with a friendly smile from the bar staff. You can't ask for more than that.





Still talking gin (lol, no I'm not obsessed), the drinks menu boasted the following options:

~ Ambra Lime Blush
~ 78 Degree, Peppercorn & Lemon
~ KI Wild Gin, Green Apple & Thyme




My absolute favourite was the Ambra Lime Blush gin cocktail, which citrus lovers will enjoy! It was pink, pretty, fruity and delicious, and I'll just say I had a few. If this is sounding a bit girly, don't worry. Lakes Bar has sport lovers covered with a giant 195 inch HD super screen, so you don't have to miss a minute of the footy action.




From the mini beetroot tarts, to delicious dumplings, tiny squares of juicy pork belly with crunchy crackling and cherry tomato & bocconcini skewers, the finger food was outstanding as well.








I had a wonderful night and will definitely be returning for another Ambra Lime Blush!

Lakes Bar and Hotel is at 141 Brebner Drive, West Lakes. You can follow their gin masterpieces on Instagram here
