I've decided to actually commit to doing a project pan for the remainder of this year and possibly into the next one. I had already made a couple of Instagram posts talking about the Revlon Sculpt and Highlight Contour Kit which I have been trying to finish for a while now however nothing like gathering a group of products and deciding to dedicatedly use them until they are empty.Read More
In case you're new to this blog or you missed my earlier post in which I introduced this topic, 2019 is my no-buy year. From the first of January to the 31st of December I have not and will not be purchasing any new makeup or skincare products until I have used up all of my current ones.
So it is currently the beginning of July and I've just passed six months into my no buy year.Read More
If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time then you’ll have noticed the recent changes I’ve made to the design and name. Recently I decided that I wanted to make this blog have a bit of character and base it off some of my favourite blogs that I follow. I wanted to narrow down it’s purpose and and I why write in it.Read More
I love the Met Gala. It’s by far my favourite red carpet event of the year. The fashion, the freedom and the drama coming together into one gala makes it the only celebrity event that I’ll really stay up to date with.
This year the theme for the gala was ‘Camp: Notes on fashion’. The theme is inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay ‘Notes on ‘Camp’, which is widely credited to have introduced the notion of ‘Camp’ to the mainstream.Read More
I was watching Youtube this morning and a few of the channels I’m subscribed to did this Unpopular Opinions Makeup Tag. The videos were really fun and interesting to watch and I thought that a tag like this might be a nice change from the reviews I normally do. I laughed when I watched Tati’s video and she said that she was tagging herself to do this because no one had actually tagged her, so I decided that I would do the same. So I’m tagging myself into this because I want to do fun things too!Read More
Yes, I am currently doing a no-buy year. I was put onto the idea after watching Hannah Louise Poston on YouTube and hearing about her experience and how it changed her for the better.
But I’m getting ahead of myself so to backtrack a little bit. For those who don’t know what a no-buy means, a no-buy is a period of time where you don’t buy anything at all.Read More
Welcome, thanks for coming.
This blog is a new endeavour for me; make-up slightly less so, but only slightly.
By that I mean I’ve been wearing make-up for a couple of years now, and by wearing make-up, I mean wearing more than the one powder foundation I had owned since I was sixteen. Considering I’m nearing 23 I was wearing only that wrong shade, wrong finish powder foundation for a long time.
The reason I am creating this blog is to combine my love of beauty, photography and writing. On this blog you can find me testing products against the Australian sun (in which I live under), updating you on my project pan and no-buy year and pulling apart my makeup collection to create new combinations and find fresh inspiration.
Over the last year in particular I have begun my journey to becoming a more conscious consumer of makeup and skincare. I have undertaken a no-buy, started a project pan and constrained myself to a monthly budget in the effort to make myself more aware of my spending and to gain perspective on how much wonderful makeup I already own.
