Mecca Maxima // Beauty Loop Birthday Gift

Hey guys! 

During the early hours (7am) of Tuesday morning i placed an order to Mecca Maxima and ordered two things.


Products Bought:

  1. Urban Decay, AfterDark eyeshadow palette
  2. 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 the Mecca 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.

Beauty Loop Level Two Birthday Gift: Description

 


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.


Natural Ingredients:

  • Pink grapefruit
  • Oat extracts
  • Apricot Kernel oil
  • Bergamot oil
  • Gardenia extract

 

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.

Hey There!

So todays blog post is going to be very short, very short as in under 300 words x. What i’m going to be talking about today is basically YouTube and my Instagram update, if you want to check out my Instagram click here.

notebooks.jpg

So in the picture above i recently book a weekly planner (on top) and a beautiful pink, white and golden notebook in which it says ‘Let’s Move To Paris’. Seeing this is made me want to pick it up as to all the tourist attacks at the moment in Paris.

So basically I posted this picture on Instagram and said in it that i am going to be making my account have more flat lays (such as this photo) and more pastel pictures throughout my Instagram. The only pictures i will post flat lays of are 1. stationary and 2. fashion/ fashion inspiration. This will just give my Instagram a bit of a twist every now and again. Also since it’s now December i am going to be posting christmas stuff soon and my Christmas treats video will hopefully be up this Sunday although no promises!  (Sneak peek there) see? It pays to be following my blog 🙂 I am also hoping to have 2 christmas videos every week though there is one week with three uploads!

So that has put this blog post to an end. See? It was so small ❤

Any questions? Don’t be afraid to ask in the comments! x

The Perfect Lush Bath! | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

So in today’s blog post i’m going to be talking about the perfect Lush bath! (and it’s usually pink or blue 🙂 ).

To me the ‘Perfect lush bath’ is anything to do with their Christmas line but yearly round it’s bubbles and everything sweet! For example The Snow Fairy shower gel.

now

This is the shower gel of shower gels for your Sweet pick. To some it’s sickly sweet but to me it’s divine! I really want to buy the $32 Snow Fairy shower gel XD

This next item is called Sweetie Pie which is a shower jelly that smells if black current! (That’s a smell i love!) This shower jelly also has sparkles in it so expect to be a sparkle goddess! ❤

sp

If you’re looking for a new shower jelly this one’s for you!

Now how does the bath water look when these items + the Comforter are combined? Guess… Pink? You’re right! ❤

mfoter

The comforter is my favourite all year round Lush bubble bar! it creates so many bubbles with so little product! (This picture was taken after my ‘Perfect Lush Bath’).

No matter how many different Comforter bubble bars i’ve tried they always take over any other bubble bar! 🙂

So this is it for this Blog Post, short n simple as most times. If you live in AUS you might know i am posting late at night now so i’m writing shorter blog posts, but tomorrow i will be posting a Blog Post in the morning! ❤

Any questions? Don’t be afraid to ask in the comments!

Art Of Bathing Lush | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

In todays Blog Post i’m going to be just talk about one of the gift sets Lush has which is called The Art Of Bathing. This blog post isn’t going to be full of detail because it is very late at night and I’m tired

lush

So as seen in the picture the box is packed to the bring of 15 Lush goodies!

This box retails for $99 AUS dollars. Very expensive i know but it’s not their dearest. The reason we got this gift set is because we (my mum and I) are giving 2 things out to 3 people and then my mum is having 2 products and i am having 5. Although she didn’t use her’s… i might of… only because she didn’t want to use them and didn’t care XD.

There is also around half bubble bars and half bath bombs in the set. Now i’m not going to go into too much detail as everything is on the Lush websites. ❤

Spring! | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

So todays blog post is on SPRING! Spring has to be one of my favourite seasons just because it’s hot enough to go swimming but also because it’s cool occasionally.

IMG_6689

 Reasons i LOVE spring:

  • The flowers are amazing during spring they smell and look so beautiful.
  • It’s not too hot and not too cold.
  • Swimming! Spring is the perfect time for swimming because it’s warm to hot but not boiling.
  • The clothes are all bright and ‘summer-y’.
  • You can wear flower crowns/ headbands without looking a bit out of season.
  • Skirts! I myself don’t like to wear skirts but i feel as though spring is the PERFECT because of the heat.time to wear a skirt because of the heat.
  • Playsuits! i will only wear playsuits/ jumpsuits during Spring and Summer because they are loose which helps to cool down during hot weather.
  • I also really enjoy wearing pink, purple, gold and neutral eye shadows during this season. But let’s face it i wear these colours all the time.
  • Now for lipstick! I find that coral lipsticks with gloss over the top looks best during spring. To be honest i don’t know what makes me think this but i guess it’s like i think matte lipsticks work well for Autumn and Winter.

These are the MAIN reasons i loooove Spring! Hope you all are enjoying my blog so far <3.

See you in my next blog post!
