'What's in my bag' vlog.

Hello! :)  

Today I am sharing a 'what's in my bag' vlog that I filmed a couple of weeks ago and never got around to posting.  I apologise for how fast I am talking in this video, but I was feeling a bit jittery for some reason. Maybe I was just on a high from all of the shopping I'd been doing. :P




Please let me know if you enjoyed this vlog and want me to keep doing more! :)

My life lately.

Picked all of this up for just over $30. :)

Picked these three items up for $30 too!

Watched my handsome man get dressed for his GP placement every Thursday.

Booked in some quality time with my other handsome man, Liam Neeson. ;)

Caught up with my extended family/met my Uncle's new wife from Hong Kong.
(more photos from that night can be found here).

Enjoyed the return of my favourite serial killer, Dexter. :)

FIX Shampoo + Conditioner Review.



Hey lovelies! :)  

I've really been getting into making YouTube videos lately and have decided to start reviewing some of the many hair and beauty products that I have tried/will be trying in the future.  I have quite a long list of products lined up to review, so if you would like to subscribe to my YouTube channel you can do so by clicking here.

The products I will be reviewing today are the FIX shampoo and conditioner for fine + flat/oily hair types.  I have been using these products every second day for the last 6 months, so I feel that I have tested them enough to give my genuine, honest opinion.



Please let me know if you enjoyed this review and/or found this review to be helpful! :)

My super simple skin care routine + vlog.


Hey guys!  So as you all know I've been making some changes to my lifestyle lately including my diet and hair care routine, but in doing this I've also become more aware of my current skin care and make up routines and have basically decided that I want to get all of my daily routines down pat.  I've always been envious of girls who seem to be able to get their skin, hair and make up routine done and out of the way well before they have to leave for work/school of a morning.. and although I don't actually know too many of these girls, the fact that they exist is enough to make me strive to make a change.


Fortunately it wasn't hard for me to establish a new skin care routine as most of the products I've chosen are not all that new to me.  It was really more about refining certain products, and getting into the habit of using these items every day.  I've been using these products together for almost 2 months now, and I am positive that I have found the perfect skin care routine for my skin type/lifestyle.  As I will explain in the video below, I have combination dry and oily skin, so to have my skin care routine all sorted is kind of a big deal to me.  My skin has been looking and feeling so much better these last couple of months, so much so that I have been been experimenting with different make up, which is something I never would have done in the past when my skin was so out of control.  

Anyway, since I'm so happy with my new skin care routine I figured I would post a video to explain in further detail how you can be as happy with your skin as I am. :)  Enjoy!

Your keys to being happy. Free Printable!

for more sizes, click here.

I was reading a few self help books the other day, as one tends to do when they're not feeling like themselves, and came up with this little list of things that I could start doing to improve my overall attitude and outlook on life. :)  

Since I got such a positive response for the last free printable I made, I decided to turn my list into another free printable to share with you all.  I hope you guys like it!

Currently..

Watching: New episodes of Dexter, Revenge, Modern Family, Castle, Criminal Minds, Glee, Big Bang Theory, Winners and Losers, Beauty and the Geek.. oh yes, and the X Factor. :)

Listening To:  Whatever's on my ipod, but only when I'm driving.  I never listen to the radio or play music at home.  Yes, I'm weird.

Thinking About:  How much Uni sucks right now and how I wish I could be doing something more enjoyable with my time.  I'm also thinking about my health a lot lately as well.

Trying To Figure Out:  How to get my remaining assignments done when I have zero motivation to do them, and whether or not I should get a full fringe again.

Looking Forward To:  Uni being over for the year, expanding my design business, saving some money, spending more time with B.. unfortunately most of these lovely things are only going to be short lived. :(

Reading:  Blogs, text books and free self help books.  Yay for free stuff!

Making Me Happy:  B, food, TV shows, cuddles and the thought of hanging out with the furbabies. :)


What are you currently up to?

A Little Family Reunion.

Last night almost the entire family from my Mums side got together to eat, drink, celebrate and catch up. This rarely ever happens as everyone is always so busy, and one of my Uncle's lives in Hong Kong, but last night was a special occasion as it was our first time meeting my Uncle's new wife.  The two of them got married in Hong Kong at the beginning of May this year, and as most of the family couldn't afford to fly over for their big day, my Uncle arranged to bring his new wife on a holiday to Australia so that we could finally meet her in person.  :)

Some of my extended family

It just so happens that last night was also my new Aunt's 24th birthday, so my Uncle kindly shouted everyone to a three course meal at this really nice restaurant near my Mums house.  For starters I ordered the calamari (which was very daring of me because I normally steer clear of seafood), for my main I ordered a scrumptious lamb loin/mashed potato combo (it was called something else but I can't remember what), and for dessert I received a generous slice of my lovely Aunt's chocolate birthday cake. :D  It was a long, enjoyable night and probably the most fun I've had with my extended family in years.  Lots of photos were taken, far too many to share them all, so here are just a few of my favourites.. Enjoy!
