New YouTube Channel!

Hey There!

So i’ve been gone for the past few days because i’ve been setting up my new YouTube channel, along with filming and editing my first video! Today i’m going to film a collective haul from the past few months and i will upload it next Sunday. I also will be filming and editing a video everyday next week. I’m doing this because i’ll then have videos for my channel for 6-7 weeks when school goes back. Also, i have all week 2 off next term because there’s a camp and i wont be attending. The camp actually goes for 3 days and 2 nights but that Monday is some holiday in Australia or my State and then theres no point going Tuesday because we won’t be doing anything. This means that i’ll have videos for the next 3 Months! I’m so pumped and motivated to kick off my new channel. If you were previously subscribed to Caitlin Maree please go and subscribe to BeautyBBee.

Feeling Better

Hey There!

So today i would say i felt as good as great! Which is not what i’ve been use to haha!I’m honestly so happy that my anxiety didn’t play up today and i overall was calm. Whenever i see my therapist the next week seems to be the best i feel.

I will say though that towards the end of the day, i started to feel uneasy, but overall not bad. Basically, i kept telling myself to expand the comfort zone and reach out and remember to breath out then in.

Yesterday, my therapist also said that it’s better to breath out first then in, this is because your lungs will relax first and breath in new air rather then try and squeeze in the and and breath out. Breath out, then you will feel more relaxed. Imagine the meter bar expanding. 

Also today i had my last test and handed in my last assignment! WHOO school term is nearly over! The assignment was so cringe because it was a informative, skit to do with scams… uh, so cringe! I literally was like crying of laughter, nervousness and hiding under the desk haha! (lil’ immature i know but anyway..)

If you’re a beauty lover, stay tuned in because during this coming weekend i’ll be posting some beauty pictures! I’m sorry to those who prefer beauty over my health posts, heh, but both things are important to me ❤


Also i want to do a Q&A within the next week so please ask some questions. It can be about beauty, youtube, anxiety – anything!

Colour Hide Sent Me a Package! (Review/ Haul)

Hi There!

So yesterday, really early in the morning, the post man came a delivered me a package from Colour Hide. I was super excited to open this package as i knew they would be sending me highlighters… i was in desperate need of some! Luckily, they arrived at the perfect time! Just as all my school was had run out. So now i have 6 new awesome highlighters. Basically, the way i’ll be reviewing them is

  1. Quality
  2. Colour
  3. Ergonomics

For the notebooks they sent me, there’s not much to say about them apart from the quality.

For the highlighters, firstly I’m going to say i can’t fault them at all! They quality of them is the best I’ve tried! They are said to have ”German technology” which means that they shine brighter, now i see no shine but i will say that they are very bright! On the back of the highlighters packaging it say ”4 hours of anti-dry cap off time”. Now, i haven’t tried this and i don’t really want to but, I’m going to take their word for it. The colours that come within the six pack are, pink, blue, peach (my favourite), yellow, orange and green. All of the colours are very bright and… pigmented if that’s the word? They colours don’t bleed through any paper (i’ve tried multiple notebooks and not just the Colour Hide brand). Because of this, i don’t have to worry about whats on the other side of the paper anymore, (i use to have to check because my other highlighters were really bad quality ugh!). The last point i want to mention is ergonomics. Unlike other highlighters, these ones have are curving continuously. Know, i’ve had thick brick highlighters and thin as ones so these brightly coloured, awesome patterned highlighters seem like luxury to me.

As for the notebooks, the paper is strong and thick (which i like) and i don’t mean as in thick width wise but they aren’t shear like other books i own. Each page has its own perforated section, which makes it easy to rip out if need be and the patterns on the front as so super cute and trendy!

That pretty much wraps this up, or should i say thats the end of another chapter or thats the last line this page will be receiving, hahahheee uhhh, anyway.

Christmas Lush Collection 2016 (my thoughts)

Hi There!

Just recently, Lush brought out their Christmas and Halloween products for 2016. Overall, I would have to say my thoughts are kind of the same as last year. I’m a little disappointed by the scent range. Yes, you have you lovely sweet and mint scents and you have a wide a range of fruity scents but, you don’t have many spicy scents. It’s all be overwhelmed but the orange, mandarine and tangerine. I seriously think Lush need to up their game on spicy scents. That’s what makes Christmas at Lush! Within the shower gels, body containers, soaps and other products I think the scents are wonderful and there’s an even amount of great scents, but with the bath bombs and bubble bars, I’m disappointed.

I have screen shot all the products from Lush’s Australian website so i can show you what each product looks like, (by the way, i have bought 18 of the lines products and i might be buying more..). Because Lush (in Australia) has released half of the products at the start of November and will be releasing the other half in the first week of November i haven’t smelt everything, therefore i will not be able to describe the scents. If I can’t describe all the scents I will describe none.

So above are all the products on the website. As for appearances, this year I’m happy to say that i think everything looks more christmas-y. There’s the cute as penguin which was released in 2013-2014 (possibly even further back), you have several magic wands, a dinosaur with a santa’s hat! A present, angel, pudding and a reindeer on a soap! With this there is even more great looking goodies!

Overall, Lush this year has been pretty good! Let me know if you’ve bought and tried anything, (i’ve nearly bought all the bath products/ i will be buying the 4 i don’t have at the moment).

My art work (School gallery night) Lino printing

Hey There!

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.

IMG_0799.jpg

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.

img_0800

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 ❤

A Little Message (& starting my blog up again for good!)

Hi There!

So no i haven’t abandoned my blog… it’s just not my blog I’ve had a break from. And believe me, it kills me to not post on my blog, it’s like, my baby. I enjoy blogging so so much and i find it so so fun! I am here to tell you all why i have been gone another 5 months. Also 2 months away from youtube and on and off on Instagram.

Reason 1:

Ok so the first reason is school.

Last term was the most stressful term so far this year (currently week 2 of my last term and will have no assignments only tests). Last term everything was assignments given at the same time due at the same time, SUCH A MESS 😦 Last term didn’t work out for me and because of my stress I believe that my grades weren’t as good as term 1 and 2. This term, I feel different. I’m ready for all those nasty tests and I’m currently working on my ”Top 5 Dark Nude Lip Products” video, (literally as i type). So yay, I’m bringing back youtube! I also have a HUGGGGGEEEE Lush haul going up probably mid way through November as i still am going to go to Lush a few more times. I will be hauling over 25 products!

Reason 2:

Ok… I have been seriously sick.

Because of stress my anxiety and depression levels last term everything went wrong, I felt so alone, i cried myself to sleep, I would pull at my hair  – face, scream… it was horrible but not only did my anxiety and depression get in my way, i had been sick for 6 months. March to August. I am now better and have fully recovered ready for the best Christmas season ever!

That about sums it up.

a few reasons as to why I’ve been away. Stay tuned for upcoming posts in the upcoming months!

I Love You xo Mwha

Christmas Lush Products! | CaiitlinMaree

Hey There!

So i may have a  slight  um rethinking that… I have a HUGE Lush addition! I love lush so much at christmas time. I just love all the cinnamon and spicy smells that remind me of all the food that everyone eats at christmas time (i also adore sweet scents too!). This year at Lush though they only have 1-3 spicy scents and then the rest is sweet and some bath products a little fruity. I would’ve prefered them to have released more spicy scents but the ones that are out are still yummy! 😉 Down below is my current Lush collection x

lushh

All products seen (apart from the lip scrub) are their Christmas products. There is also numerous Christmas items deep down in the Ikea skurar pots x

So if you live in Australia you will know that in this picture i did get most of the christmas line… yeah. I am missing around 3-4 i think. The only other product i might get is the Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly. But i’m not sure yet.

Any questions about the line? Don’t be afraid to leave a comment below x

See you in my next Blog Post!
