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!

APOCALIPS (my first ever review!)

22 Sep
Hello, good evening, good morning!

I didn’t mention in my first post but I thought I would also throw in some reviews to my blog, and for my first ever review I thought I would do what I consider to be one of my favourite new products out on the shelves.

Apocalips

a-poc-a-lypse
Noun
1. The complete final destruction of the world, esp. as described in the biblical book of Revelation.
2. An event involving destruction or damage on an awesome or catastrophic scale.

I love a good play on words, and I’m not not saying that it’s not true – but I don’t think this will be the last lip product I will ever use.

I say this but, you know what? I actually kind of love the Apocalips – Lip Lacquer. I don’t know what constitutes a good lacquer but it’s not super sticky like some and it smells pretty awesome!

I have the colour “101 – Celestial” which is a gorgeous blush pink colour – from what I can tell, on my skin any way, pinks can make me look a little strange because I have a naturally tanned face and my lips are already a reddish colour so anything lighter makes me look quite washed out. This doesn’t though, it gives them an almost natural look – even James (that’s my fiancĂ©) likes it (and as much as I love him, he’s not really the makeup noticing type).

I bought this with some birthday money I received a little while ago and also managed to grab a couple of eye liners which I want to experiment with. I love a good haul – maybe that is something I can do in the future? A bit of a haul post. I do like shopping, but being a poor student I either need a really good reason or to have come into some money – so maybe that won’t happen until my next birthday – or maybe when I get married.

Anyway, before I manage to sidetrack myself even more, I really really love Rimmel for bringing this out and one day, I will buy more colours – unless they unapocalypse and bring out something even better. It’s bound to happen.

Love Matilde xx
