Willow Tree Minerals is a company I found on Etsy during a search for more mineral makeup, so I decided to give them a try. I decided to try 2 sample packs. I ordered 10 eyeshadows and 2 blushes. What first stood out to me with this shop was the photography. It’s so creatively, and...

This case file came about through an incredibly bad planned shopping trip. This why you should always check the fridge before assuming you have what you need. Tamari (a wheat free soy sauce, we prefer how this tastes) is something we use a lot of in cooking. A lot. So much so, that because we...

My Black Friday MC package rolled in last week, and oh is it a thing of beauty and joy forever *cuddles lip gloss*. I ordered the tinted lip balms (before they made their final farewell) and lipglosses. One of my subsequent orders, the 1920s lipstick sale, my 2 lipsticks I purchased were also included in...

Innocent + Twisted Alchemy – Swatcherooni

Just a swatch post for you! Hope you don’t mind I made this order during Innocent + Twisted’s Tragic Tuesday (the Tuesday following Black Friday) and purchased the 10 bagged samples for $10. Perfect opportunity to try a new company, and one that I was really excited to try. I’ll be placing an order for...

I am just so incredibly over the moon. I found out at 9pm Wednesday, that finally 2 years of working towards it, I finally have achieved the biggest goal of my life. I’ve been accepted to UNSW (the university of New South Wales). I’m finally going to be able to major in microbiology, and focus...

Gel lipsticks are the latest creation from Morgana Cryptoria, and are definitely a new creation, and something lipstick junkies should try at least once. I ordered these quite a while ago, and unfortunately haven’t used them as much as I would like to. The gel formula of these don’t make it easy to use in...

Persephone Minerals – Sailor Senshi Colours – Pluto + Jupiter + Venus

Warning: glorious glitter, shimmer and nostalgia overload commencing. These are swatches of various colours in the Sailor Pluto, Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus collections, and I can’t wait to go back and try more sailor scout colours (the vegan ones of course ). This won’t be a review, just a swatch heavy post As an...

YESH – green! I love green eyeshadow! It helps tremendously that I have brown eyes, so I’m happy that I can smush just about any green over my lid and can be happy with it. Unlike the problems I have with blue eyeshadow There wasn’t any major thought behind why I chose the greens I...

I’m lazy, the room is messy, and the bed isn’t made (pssst, it never is!), but I’m still going to show you guys (in a limited manner) where it is that I spend the roughly 2 years of my life over all. (Did you know that apparently during the average lifetime a person will sleep...

Apologies for the late update on this one! It’s 2:15am as I write to you, so to me, it is still the 10th day, let’s stick with this story For childhood, it was another difficult one for me to photograph, but I think I came through with the goods. I present Ernie and Snorlax, in...

Today’s photo was pretty difficult for me to fathom. I wasn’t really quite sure how to best represent the theme. Scientist Ellie however knew what to do, as she has done these about 2000 times before for projects, assignemtns and reports > the humble flow chart. So this is a photo of my daily...

This weeks’ theme is Lunar Eclipse. I’ve never witnessed a lunar eclipse, but I would really love to. I always seem to miss out on these events in life. Just like during high school, TAFE and University I’ve always been absent on the days they do fire alarm drills. ALWAYS. I know I don’t like...
