Monthly archive November, 2011

There’s a private/closed facebook group that I’ve been apart of for about 4-5 months now, and it’s been one of the best places I’ve ever ventured on the internet. It’s a community of makeup enthusiasts/artists/professionals/fragrance makers/artisans/all round excellent people, that have given me more than a glimpse into the world of indie cosmetic, fragrance and...

It’s been quite busy this week. Been going to job interviews all over the place and it’s left me absolutely exhausted. In the time I’ve had free I’ve been wanting to take swatches, but it’s been raining crazy here all week! Which has been good for me in another way I guess. Love the rain...

This weeks’ challenge in the Never Too Much Sparkle makeup community (on facebook) was “Fierce”, which as usual the theme is open to personal interpretation I already knew what I was going to do when the theme was announced and I was really looking forward to it. I’m happy and a little disappointed in how...

*Need to clarify: Due to my misreading Muerte should be Muertos, so I’ve labelled them incorrectly in all swatches. Sorry There is no colour called Muerte, it’s called Muertos.*   This will not be a review sadly, as I placed my order and received my items back in August, and my memory is not awesome....

I did have plans to get some swatches done, but it’s cloudy and raining outside. Which is never ever a problem for me. I love weather conditions like this. Just not good for swatching I’ve been thinking about using my daylight light bulb to help get the lighting conditions working, and photographing the swatches inside...
Solstice Scents - Review

Solstice Scents – Review

I can’t remember how I first came across Solstice Scents (most likely from blog hopping), but I’m really glad I did because I’ve found some great fragrances. So far I’ve only sampled the perfume oils, but Solstice Scents also make other bath and body products such as solid soaps, whipped soaps, body lotions & creams...

This is a review and swatch session that has been a long time coming, but I just kept having other things I had to do. However, I am glad to finally be putting up this post on Linnaeus Cosmetics. Linnaeus Cosmetics is run by Marin, who is a veterinary student and all round lover of all things...

My academic year is finished for this year as of tonight So now I have a BUTTLOAD of time up my hands, and I want to try and dedicate a chunk of it to blogging. So to help me stay motivated during my major bummage here’s a little timetable (been making too many of those...

Heading home tomorrow Exams happening this Wednesday and Thursday. Cannot wait for this to be done. To be honest, I’m finding the study…enjoyable o.O  So I’m going for gold here with the study. I can’t wait to get home Thursday night – because this means no more uni until March 2012 Far out, I’ve got...

Won’t be around for about 5 days. Heading over with Mr D to his brothers’ house as his mum is in town from interstate, so we’re spending a couple of days over there I’m still participating in the indoor festival, just relocating to another venue! I bet you that the majority if what I’ve been...

I think I may start making my dinner blogging a regular thing. Might even help me keep track of what I’ve been eating, I tend to forget what meals I make most often, then I can backtrack through and see if I’m not eating enough of x and y. So for dinner last night was...

Finally in my possession I have all 10 samples of the newest collection from Shiro Comsetics, the Death Note Collection. I ordered the sample bag set on October 17 and they arrived on November 1st. So far I have some firm favourites in Second Kira, More Sugar and Shinigami, and there are a few other...
