Pay Day Small Haul

25 Sep
Hello hello!

Pay day has to be my most and least favourite day of the week. It’s a yay because I get money, it’s a not yay because it makes me realise I need more.

Whatever the case, it means I can spend my set aside money on stuff.

Something important I needed to buy as previously mentioned was a new cleanser. I think my old cleanser was actually making my skin oily. I don’t usually have that oily of a face… It worried me. So, I bought Olay’s foaming face wash for combination/oily skin. I hope it works okay?

I also realised the day of posting my Skincare Routine post, my moisturiser vanished. Into thin air. It’s gone. Forever.
So I bought a new moisturiser 🙂
Considering it is coming up to Spring here in Melbourne, I decided a bit of sunscreen protection could help. I also thought it might be nice to try a tinted moisturiser. Look what I found. A tinted ‘beige’ SPF 15 moisturiser. It’s like my original moisturiser was giving me a sign. Clever thing.

I also managed to pick up this cute necklace for $1, some cute little studs for $2 and my new bag for $20. I change bags so often that the cheap ones do me well. How could you not go for this bag? Look it in the eyes and say you don’t love it. That’s right, you can’t.

Skincare Routine

22 Sep
Hello hello!

According to all the timeline pictures I have seen for weddings, now is the time I’m suppose to go hard into my Skincare routine. My only problem with this is that I’m ridiculous at remembering to do things daily.

Take this blog for example, I am hoping this will teach me routine – to make sure I post something as often as I can! Tablets are the worst, I think I have only ever once successfully taken the full course of antibiotics and by successfully I mean, I forgot to take them some days.. Maybe the motivation of not having a giant pimple smack bang in the middle of my forehead on my wedding day will be a strong enough cause to remember to keep my face clean daily. I hope so.

A little while ago I went to Myer to try and find a good Skincare range and ended up with Natio‘s young range.

My skin is usually pretty good but it only makes sense that as I’ve been experimenting with different makeup I should probably give it a good clean.

I did make one mistake though, and probably a really crucial mistake.. I walked out of the shop, got home and realised that instead of cleanser I had bought the ‘polish – Pore Unclogging Face Scrub’ which is only used twice a week. I decided to go to my favourite cheapy store Kmart and picked up a cleanser which I definitely need to change, and soon. I bought a cleanser called ‘botanics of australia’ with a lower case a on Australia. That should have been my first sign. I am pretty sure it doesn’t do anything. It doesn’t smell like anything either.

I have the toner as well, I know it sounds weird but I love seeing the grease that comes out of my face when I use the toner. I’m sure I’m not the only one that gets that weird feeling of satisfaction. I put a good amount on some cotton pads and stay away from my eyes.
I’ve been told I have combination skin. Some times it’s super oily but I don’t get too many pimples unless I eat a lot of junk. I have been desperately trying not to junk it up and I have been good. I never eat take out food, my weakness is chocolate and muesli bars. I digress.. So after I use my toner I immediately use moisturiser.

I don’t know about you but I feel like there are a lot of steps to clean your skin. I only do this in the morning, but should I be doing it at night as well?

Sometimes I think being a girl is hard, but I love it all the same.
