It’s safe to say I’m obsessed with Mecca Cosmetica, they stock all the things you need for a to die for makeup cabinet! See below for some recent additions!
I found out about beauty bay from a friend with amazing eyebrows, I always wanted to try Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade and only knew of it being on Net A Porter which has huge postage costs, so she let me know I could get it from Beauty Bay and they post to Australia! I decided to get a few extra things to get free post. First things first if you have ever thought about trying Anastasia Beverly Hills then you just need to go and get it, I’m so glad I did and don’t know why it took this long. It doesn’t transfer or rub off, is the perfect colours and is just so amazing! I watched some YouTube videos and just went for it. I’m so happy with it!
While I was there I bought an Urban Decay eyeshadow palette, 3 brushes and got a free lip and eye primer. Delivery to Australia took exactly 2 weeks and was packaged beautifully. Very happy!
Something I can’t resist is those Lush stands at Christmas time (well leading up to it anyhoo) this time I have tried 2 new items…
Bath bubble fizzy things, I always get these as gifts for people but am now finally trying them, oh my, even the smell of them in their packets is making my home a dream to walk into. The bubbly one has worked well (candy mountain), I will be using the Christmas one (luxury lush pud) when the boy goes away this weekend and I can have a long relaxing bath.
I am also trying “fun” for the first time ever, on the packaging it says you can use it to wash clothes, I gave this a go with my delicates and it works a treat, keeps them soft and they smell devine. I thoroughly recommend giving this a go and it was only $10. Seriously, I can’t recommend this enough!
Also just going to put it out there that Pink Fun is replacing my love of Snow Fairy, the smell is so much better!
Lately I have been feeling a little off – tired, bloated and just generally lacking energy so took to facebook and reached out for some ideas on what could be going on. I had so many people with amazing input and have been trialing a few things to see what can make me feel better. Maybe this is what getting older is all about.
So firstly I tried a a few things that didn’t work but I will be going over the things that did.
1. Lactofree – I was lucky enough to be offered a pack of this to try, it essentially gives your body extra suppprt to help it digest dairy which most adults are in some way intollerant towards. When my doctor told me I shouldn’t have milk as I get discomfort and bloating from it, I almost screamed! I love ice cream, lattes, cheese and really anything made from cows milk. Having one of these before milk products was perfect at stopping my bloating and no discomfort…yay.
Another great thing is that I used to spend extra money on the special A2 milks and lactose free ones which are actually quite expensive, I don’t have to buy these anymore and am saving money.
2. Vitamins – the main ones I was looking for was vitamin d and something with B12, the blackmores womens vitality really has everything you need as an active woman and good for mood which was my main concern for that time of month. Vitamin D because I work in an office and don’t get enought sun time.
3. I bought a treadmill, this is a win because I get home so late and my dog hates walking long distances. I just have my tablet in front of the treadmill and play nextflix episodes, this has made me feel more confident and long term will help my overall health.
These 3 changes have made me feel amazing and im so happy that I don’t have to have a can of Red Bull everyday, what I thought was an iron deficiency turned into a bit of a whole approach to my life. I can now eat dairy with no issues, have the energy to work out and all round happier. My next life overhaul is going to be my skin care routine.
P.s. try lactofree on your boyfriend, it actually reduces the tooting haha.
