At the end of last month (July) I submitted my entry into a competition to do with modelling. Now with my anxiety comes the dread that if i do get past online coaching that i will have to travel to QLD’s capital city. But because i love the idea of modelling and thoroughly enjoy it, i’m going to do even better than my best to push through if i make it that far.
During the early hours (7am) of Tuesday morning i placed an order to Mecca Maxima and ordered two things.
Urban Decay, AfterDark eyeshadow palette
SmashBox, Photo-Finish lid primer
Both of which i’ll do a review on in the next few days. So if you’re thinking about buying those products, it’ll be a perfect opportunity for you to learn a thing or two.
Sadly today, i will be talking about something a little less exciting, yet, still pretty cool. I’m currently on level 2 of theMecca Maxima Beauty Loop.Basically this means that i spend $600-$1199 every year at Mecca to be able to be on level 2. Level 3 is the next level i will move onto but only if i spend over $1200 each year, and i don’t know if i’ll get that far, maybe when i’m older but definitely not at this age. I need to spend $511 by the 15/4/17 and obviously that being a month away is not going to happen. But, if i spend $384 by the 15/11/17 i’ll stay in level 2, which will probably happen, but again a healthy finance is important. Anyway, so you might wonder, how does this all related to the Mecca Birthday Gift? If i was you, i’d be thinking that too. Basically, what happens is, if you’re on level 2 or 3 you’ll be sent a gift when you next order online (within the next month or two, i believe). Now you can’t pick the gift and everyone gets the same present so, if you’re on level 2 you’ll recieve a ”Mecca Cosmetica, hand wash”. Whoop de do hey? Yeah, nah, i thought so too… So i wasn’t too happy with the item they give you like, why not give you a full sized lipstick or something? After all, you did spend over $600 to get to level 2, or at least, you should be able to pick your gift yourself. The hand wash also isn’t available online, so if you do so happen to fall in love with it, you can’t repurchase it. It also has a 12 month expiration date, so you should be using this hand wash up within 12 months, (supposedly). Another thing to point out, there is 400ml (13.52 Oz), so, it’s quite a generous amount.
The colour of the soap is a light yellow, the standard hand-wash colour from your supermarket, (wish it was blue or pink, or just tinted a nice colour). There are also a bunch of gorgeous smelling and natural ingredients in it, (i’m presuming that’s why the colour isn’t appealing, unfortunately there is chemicals in it so it’s not up to my Lush standards but it is not tested on animals!). Though, the scent is unbelievable! It’s so fresh and flowery, uh, it’s sublime.
Apricot Kernel oil
Other than that, i’m not sure what to say. There isn’t that much more to say about a hand-wash, apart from mention a few ingredients, mention the smell and what it looks like. And just so you know, no i haven’t tried it, and i don’t plan to until my two other hand-washes in my bathroom run out, so i can’t say whether or not it makes my fingers and palms feel like a babies bottom. I’m not expecting much, a hand-wash is a hand-wash and it’s job is to makeup your hands smell nice and remove germs, then again, it looks aesthetically pleasing, and would look right at home on a shelf of mine.
Overall, do i like it? Yes, the scent smells like fresh Gardenia’s and also has quite a few nourishing items in it. It looks aesthetically pleasing, (apart from he yellow colouring) and seems to be quite a nice item.
If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to leave a comment. I’ll get back to you as soon as i can.
So i have been gone again for quite some time and i’m surprised… i actually gained like 7 followers and have been getting views! WHAT!? Thanks so much for being active whilst i’m gone.
I basically decided that i needed a break… not just from the blog, but from my youtube channel, Instagram and here! So i quit social media altogether up until late December and rejoined and made a new Instagram account @Beautybbee so go follow me on there because i’ve been posting so much! Also this account is going to be now aimed at makeup and lifestyle.
It’ll feature makeup (reviews and monthly favourites) and lifestyle as in food and books! I hope you enjoy the change to my blog and continue to support me even whilst i’m gone because you guys have no idea how much i appreciate you! ❤
Hey there my friends, today i will be showing you my ”Lino printing” that was put up in my school art gallery as well as for tonights gallery ”exhibition”. Term 1 and 2 in art this year, along with a petri dish full of decorative items that described us, we did a painting with symbols and pictures that are memorable as well as representing an element in us. But, my favourite piece out of the three is totally this. I really just love the black sleek oil printed onto this canvas? Paper. Just the effect is so nice! This was my first time sing carving tools as well as ”Lino” so i did make a few jagged mistakes in my artwork. But, lucky for me there is quite a bit of texturing so it really isn’t that noticeable. 🙂 And i am proud to say that all the white space within the art (well, obviously is carved but) I was the student to have carved the most ”Lino”, (I even had to take it home the night before it was due because I hadn’t finished yet!).
Anyway, the picture below tells the story of me at the beach posing for the camera. Now, this memory is important to me because i hadn’t been to the beach for probably 2-3 years before with my mum. I carved birds (they’re meant to be seagulls), a boat which I saw multiple of on the horizon, a palm tree (again there was multiple but i just carved one), I then carved the waves/ ocean, the sand, a camera because, hello photography is a must on the beach and a hibiscuss (which is a type of flower) and to be honest i don’t have much of an idea why i carved this, it just needed something else and I guess i thought ”why not a flower?”.
Now, I thought I would share with you my friends ”Lino” as well as my favourite piece. Just saying though, I don’t know if i have permission to do this but both girls I’m sure was be very happy for me to post about their work.
First, my friends ”Lino” Obviously I won’t share her full name but, her first name is Maddy (Madison). Again, the story behind her ”Lino” is so meaningful and personal to her, so I defiantly won’t share the true meaning behind it but, I guess an overall idea is Sadness and Misery.
Now this next one (along with my friends ”Lino”) is my favourite! I don’t know how to pronounce her name but honestly this piece though! A-MAZ-ING! The detail leaves me is aw… Sadly, I don’t know the meaning towards hers but I think it’s possibly about moving to Australia.
So that pretty much wraps up this blog post. It’s a record for me, I’ve been typing for 20-25 minutes 🙂 Though, I’ve really enjoyed blogging this post as it is something I was looking forward too! If i don’t have permission to posting the other prints i will remove both pictures off my blog. If you have any other blog post recommendations, i would love to hear them.
I’m thinking about blogging my everyday makeup routine and describing what each product does for me. Let me know through any media sites if you think its a good idea ❤
So. I don’t know wether to call these a rant or a big old post of feelings to do with social media?.. Anyway. So i’m just going to be talking about a bunch of subjects, yes a bunch.
Yes, bulling. This happens all too much in todays society. And honestly it needs to stop quite a bit today. Now i can’t work magic or do anything to help this situation around the world but but say this, ‘What Is The Point?’ ‘What Good Are You Getting Out Of It?’ ‘Why?’. Why does one feel the need to bully (constructive criticism is totally different)! You’re just being rude, selfish and stupid! Let people be who ever they want, they are unique and God made us that way TO BE YOU AND UNIQUE! So go put the pink afro wig on, where blue lipstick with red and purple eyeshadow, wear heels with 3/4 shorts BE YOU! DO SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL IN YOUR OWN AWESOME WAY! ❤
2. Copying and Stealing
Now this comes in different forms of… ways. Through pictures to drawings to essays and to your Instagram theme! I have experienced way too many times people taking my Instagram pictures, blurring my watermark out which but the way is/potentially is illegal! I’ve also seen people be impersinated and have their account hacked again was too many times! *Sighs*
3. Hobbies feeling like chores (related to me)
I just feel as though doing YouTube and being a blogger is becoming a job/ chore and i don’t want it to become that and feel anymore like it does. It does make me sad because then i question is all this just for nothing? Am I not right to be doing this? Do I want something completely different in my life. But then it scares me to think if i quit i might miss a huge opportunity in my life to become something amazing. So i keep going ❤ Until June i will try to do a video every week or at least 3 videos a week. But when June comes i’m thinking of just 2 videos per month which hurts because i want to seem in my channel 1 video every week *again sighs* But maybe 3 i think 3 would be good but when Christmas comes around there will be 4+ ❤ of course
Instagram (related to me again)
I feel happier to take Nature pictures and pictures of my dogs and OOTDS then sometimes makeup. I think by Wednesday i will make a full photography account where each Saturday and Sunday i will post 1-2 pictures. (When i finish year 12 i’m boing to go travel the world for 1 or possibly 2 years). I am straight away going to go to Borra Borra then when it’s Summer in England i’ll go there and then i will go anywhere else i want. ❤ This makes me happy most of all! ❤
5. My expectations/ dreams?
So what i plan is whilst i’m in year 10 i’ll try and get into the makeup industry and become a professional makeup artist by the age of 17-18 then i will work in that career and then when i’m 20, i will get a certificate in photography and become a professional in photography. Once i have managed that by the age of 26 i would like to be in the magazine industry and travel the world to take pictures of places and outfits (both for my Instagram and magazines). Yes, my expectations are high for myself, yes the magazine industry is hard to get into but hopefully with both those certificates/ jobs and (give and take a few other things i have to do) i will get where i want to be. Also it has been a dream of mine since i was little to be able to do a clothing line so hopefully i will be able to do that before 30 preferably 26. I basically have my whole life planned out but i do prefer photography over makeup…. ARGJRBGIG some might say that-I don’t know. Even if i don’t 100% enjoy doing makeup it will get me further to my goal and where i want to be, it also could come in handy. ❤
That’s basically all of it ❤ I might do a Part 2 in the coming future i’m not sure let me know if you have anything you want me to talk about though obviously not too personal ❤
So in this blog post i’m going to be talking about my upcoming video. First off i don’t know if it’ll be uploaded during the night or around lunch time (of course AUS time). I thought i would have this video all edited and done by now but obviously not i still have to do the whole voice over and finish up on the intro and film me explaining about the video and add music… i have a lot to do 😦 But none the less here is the thumbnail
My lovely blogging family, you are the first to see it! Again see it pays to be keeping up with my blog x You get to see the thumbnails before anyone else and you get to find out what’s going to happen in my videos! x
So basically this is a gigantic treat video, with everything chocolate and yummy! Though if you’re lactose intolerant there is a lot of dairy and milk and i do mean a lot. But of course you can use the milk and chocolate which is dairy free!( Yes, to those who don’t know that’s such a thing!) <3. Also, i want you guys to comment your favourite treat i made either here on my blog or on YouTube. Then for next year i can try to recreate the treats you like ( i might make some healthy treats too next year 🙂 ).
One last thing have any of you guys noticed i changed my blog theme? There is now snow falling and a christmas light banner for my header with my name and a orange background to try and get you’ll in the Festive Christmas season! Ho Ho Ho :3
So that basically is all i wanted to ‘talk’ about in this blog post. I hope you all will really enjoy my treat video and my future christmas videos in the coming weeks.
Any questions? Don’t be afraid to ask in the comments! x
So in todays blog post i’m going to be talking about Christmas, more specifically decorating. Decorating for Christmas is simply one of my favourite things to do with Christmas. It brings so much colour and spirit to my room and creates either a really cute and cosy feeling or a really sleek and photogenic feel.
I’m firstly going to start with shelves. For me decorating shelves is just so hard, i find it so hard to decorate shelves jus because i like to group objects together and then having weirdly shaped decorations i just can never figure out how to work them. So what i do now is i get 3-4 decorations (if I’m grouping them) and i’ll have 1 large ornament, 1 medium ornament, and 1-2 small decor items. I feel like this will and does work for me very well.
Now i’m going to move onto my Christmas tree. Obviously i’m not going to tell you how to decorate your tree, because this can hold family memories and just be something that can suit a room by it’s theme. The tree in our lounge room has mostly red, gold and glittery baubles along with random decorations like a peacock…yeah… we have that on the main tree XD And also special memorable decorations from when i was very young (like 3-4). As you can see on the picture above i have (on my personal tree in my room) i have numerous plastic and unique decorations as that what i love.
Now for my last section your duchess/ set of drawers. I’m not going to explain really about how to decorate your bed obviously but my bed is all Christmas cutesy and ‘Australian Summer Christmasy’ so it depends on what you like really. But as see in the picture above i have very few decor items on my duchess. I don’t feel like i need a ton of decor items on my duchess because i like to keep this furniture item clean and sleek looking. But i do have a few snow globes and some glittery items as seen. I just have these decor items because i wanted something there for display obviously but also for my YouTube and Instagram backgrounds. I base everything on how my duchess and tree are (this is what starts off my decor inspiration. ❤
So that puts this very Christmassy blog post to an end. I really hope you did enjoy this different post, but of course if you want specific Christmas post be sure to comment below what you would like to see.
