What’s in my bag?

6 Jan
Hello hello!

Happy New Year you beautiful people!! How amazing is 2014 going to be? Uhh, freaking amazing!

I can officially say I’m getting married this year.. Slightly terrifying. In a good way, of course. Really, it is only 4 months away… Writing it seems much more real than just saying it. 2013 will be hard to top, but I think 2014 will give it a damn good run for its money.

A belated Merry Whatever you celebrate 🙂 were you lavished in family, food and presents? James definitely made me feel like all my dreams could come true. Other than my beautiful bag (that James picked, may I add) I got some gorgeous Essie nail polishes, chocolate and a Camp Takota pack which will be arriving soon.

Back to the bag. My oh so fabulous bag. Brand – Ooh La La.

I think it may look fuller than it is. Or maybe not. Shall we start with the most important pouch in my bag?

My makeup pouch. This gorgeous little dotty thing was from Daiso. If you’re unsure of what Daiso is, I feel sorry for you. Daiso is a cute little Japanese shop where everything is $2.80. EVERYTHING. I mainly keep my essential makeup items, bits and pieces and lady things in here. My lip products rotate and if I know I’m going out or need to look extra pretty, I chuck in an eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara.

Next is my essentials pack.

Tablets, tissues, nail file, bobby pins. If ever there is an issue, it’s fixed with a tissue. Or a bobby pin. And if that doesn’t work, pain killers will stop the brain hurt.

My budget book and diary.

Part of my New Years resolution is to learn how to budget/save money/not be broke. I saw this at Kikki K a while ago and lost it up until a couple of weeks ago.
My diary is by Cath Kidston. I bought this from a cute little shop up in Olinda, Dandenong Mountains. It is so sweet and the inside is coloured and floral and so damn adorable. Cath Kidston is fast becoming a favourite designer of mine.

This brings me on to my purse, not that it has money, but it has my Medicare card and Drivers License which are important?

Not two months ago, I wasn’t really sure about this purse. I got it as a present from my future-4-month-away-mother-in-law about a year ago, alongside a great bathroom bag. It really grew on me, I actually really love it. Downside is I can’t fit all my store cars, for some reason I have a lot of them.

This is why I have converted my Estée Lauder mini mascara pouch into my store card holder!

I promise you, I do not have OCD but when I’m on an organisation fix, I really get my fix on.

These are the last tidbits in my bag, most self explanatory. I should mention the little elephant coin purse (a gift from Thailand) is used for my earphones. Perfect size. Also, the sunglasses are not Gucci, the Gucci pair are in my wardrobe. These were $20 and I love them a lot.

(I can’t actually figure out if this is a fox or badger, but it’s cute and super useful!)

So that is it. That’s my whole entire bag fillings. Sweet like pie. What’s in your bag?

Talk soon!

December goodies

21 Dec
Hello hello!!

Can you believe that in just 4 sleeps it will be Christmas? It is such a beautiful time of year. Other then the oh so glorious presents, people are generally happier. And the food, don’t even get me started on the food.

This year James and I are going to his Grandma’s house for Christmas lunch. His parents come down from Canberra and his Uncle from Melbourne drives up as well. They’re such a caring family, they have really made me feel like one of the them. Anyway, enough mushy stuff, onto the haul.

In one of my recent pre-Christmas hauls, I picked up a gorgeous slightly shimmery mauve colour eyeshadow by Maybelline. It is a part of their MNY range. It has become my go to Christmas look. It is just so beautiful. It has a gold shimmer through the red that makes it completely wearable for work and play. I did have one similar to this from Covergirl or Max Factor that I completely adored but it is off with the makeup fairies now. Sad.

A discovery thanks to Rachael Jade were Maybelline’s Smoochies. Bought from Priceline, they are reasonably priced but lacking in variety. I bought two our of the three available but sometime after Christmas I will probably buy the last one to complete the set. So far I’m enjoying them, they’re nice on my lips, add a little bit of tint and looks charming underneath the MNY sparkly lipgloss I also bought.

My recent move to the outer suburbs has been fantastic. Along side the birds singing is a wholesale makeup shop. Oh yes! They stock makeup that you can no longer purchase from regular makeup retailers. I found some little goodies that I am looking forward to trying. I grabbed a pack of Mary Kate and Ashley mattifying papers, basically it just helps to blot away any oil on your face. I’m not sure about their brand and how it ranks, but these will be very handy for my bag. I also picked up a blue tone eyeshadow pallet from Maybelline. Blue is one of those colours that I just haven’t gotten into, so we will give it a go. I’m thinking of a bit of a smokey eye may be calling from the pallet. I do have a navy blue mascara and now a navy eye pencil to add to my collection. Maybe that alongside the gold liquid liner could be some out there party look that I may not attempt… 😀

This has been over a couple of weeks and pretty much all of them were bought on sale minus the Smoochies. I’m testing them all out still to see what works for me but at the moment my MNY eyeshadow is definitely winning.

I do know that I am getting some pretty exciting stuff for Christmas, so no doubt, that will be up here soon.

Have a lovely Christmas every one! Spend time with your loved ones and eat lots of good food, if there is ever a time for it, it is now.
