Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink

We are all on the hunt for that perfect liquid lipstick. The one that lasts all day, doesn't budge, crack or dry your lips out. We all want something that we can apply before we leave the morning and can trust that it will look amazing when we get home at night. Well that is exactly what Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink* claims to do. Does it last?

The Wedding Files: The Bridesmaid Emergency Kit

I really struggled in deciding what to get my bridesmaids for their little thank you gift. I wanted to a Daily Edited clutch, then I wanted to do jewellery and in the end I had no idea. I didn't have a big budget to spend on them. What I came up with was an adaptation of the 'Bridesmaid Emergency Kit'.

The Active Solution | Amperna

As many of you know, I have struggled with eczema and acne for a while now, and in the past couple of years they have become more of a concern for me. My challenge has been finding products that help reduce acne, but also don't dry out my skin further. I have just been introduced to a new skincare brand designed for sensitive skin. Introducing AMPERNA®! AMPERNA® is a new skincare brand committed to creating active products specifically formulated for sensitive skin. 

Surrender | Endota Spa

With the wedding this week I decided I need a last minute pamper and that my skin needed a last little boost, so I went and visited Endota Spa for a lovely facial and massage for full relaxation.

What I've Been Reading: April Edition

Welcome back! Another month has gone by, which means it's time for another wrap up of all the books I have read. Can't believe April is now over and it's May (wedding month yay!)

Office Essentials for every #BossBabe

Working from home has it's perks, like being able to sit on the couch in your pyjamas while responding to emails. As I can't do that full time (hello part time teaching job), I need to make sure the time I spend working on TLOL is productive. To do that I have created an 'office' space that is welcoming and encourages me to work hard whenever I'm in there. Here's introducing my 'office essentials'.

The Mineral Lover: Origani Make Up

Anyone that shops in popular Australian malls might have heard of Origani, a luxurious skincare brand. They have released some new make up products that I have been very excited to try.
