Benefit Haul and Customise Kit!

 As many of you Aussie beauty bloggers would know, Benefit isn't the cheapest in Australia. Most products retail at Myer for around $50. I did this order straight from the Benefit website, and it actually worked out so much cheaper. I also ordered from their 'customise kit' special, and got the free makeup bag. You get to choose one product from a few different categories, plus a free product as well. I choose their blush in Hervana, their Hello Flawless foundation, and the They're Real Mascara. I chose the lipstick as my free product. As you have to spend over $120US to get free shipping, I also ordered the travel set 'First Class Flirts' - which is great as I've been wanting to try so many of the products in the set for ages, such as Bene-tint, Porefessional, and Watt's Up. I also purchased the much talked about They're Real Push-Up Liner.

I'm still to try all of the products, but from what I've tried so far I love! I ordered the foundation in the lightest shade, 'I'm Pure For Sure - Ivory' however it's sadly still too dark for me.

The They're Real Push-up Liner is amazing, it lets you do winged eyeliner in a fraction of the time that it takes me to use my usual gel eyeliner. However it is REALLY hard to get off. So it's not the best when you're in a rush, because if you make a mistake you haven't really got time to rub at it for 5 minutes.

Overall I'm a very happy customer, and I'm so happy I ordered straight from their website, because in Myer it would have cost me a hell of a lot more.
Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?

Crush Cosmetics Haul

Hey everyone! I got my wisdom teeth out last week, and being bed bound for a week and a half was not good for my bank account. Turns out there's nothing much to do but watch movies and shop online! So I've been wanting a lot of these products for a long time, and thought it was about time I made a purchase. I'm super excited about the Sleek products and the MUA palettes.

Sleek 'Blush By 3 Palette' in 'Lace'

Sleek Eyeshadow Palette in 'Storm'
MUA eyeshadow palettes, 'Undress Me Too' and 'Heaven and Earth'
NYX Powder Blush in 'Mocha'

I haven't had a chance to try all of the products yet, but I'll definitely post an update of my thoughts later. I'm loving the MUA eyeshadows and the NYX blush. I'm going to wear the Sleek blush and eyeshadows tonight!

$4 Beauty Blender Dupe

For all the Aussie bloggers out there who desperately want to try the Beauty Blender but don't want to drop $30 on it plus international shipping, I've found an awesome copy of it in Kmart! This baby is only $4, so why not give it a go! 
It's a bit heavier and denser than the actual Beauty Blender, but for $4 you can't really go wrong. I found that with the Beauty Blender, you could apply your foundation with the sponge without actually wetting it first. (However I wouldn't recommend applying it without wetting it - it doesn't go on as well, plus it's much harder to get your foundation out of a dry sponge.) But with the Kmart version, because it's so tough I feel you need to wet it to get the best results.
 If any of you beauty bloggers out there have tried it, let me know your thoughts! Have you found another cheap dupe?

 Hey again! I couldn't resist sharing this with you. It's an Ipad case from the Australian brand Camilla, but it came free with this months InStyle Australia! If you live in Australia I would definitely recommend buying it, the print is adorable and it's only $10!

Internship Wardrobe

Hey everyone!
So I'm interning at Prevention Magazine once a week which is great! And it's so fun being able to wear heels every day. 
Seeing as I'm in my second year of uni it's pretty much the time to do internships and get experience in the fields I'm interested in. I've also been looking at international exchange programs in America, specifically around California. If you've done an exchange or known someone that has, I'd love your feedback on them! 
Jacket - Glassons, Jeans - Dr. Denim via General Pants, Boots - The Iconic, Top - Glassons, Bag - Sportsgirl, Neckalce - Sportsgirl
I've bought a heap of makeup products lately so I'll be posting reviews for your soon :)

Autumn Essentials

Hey everyone! Thought I'd do a post today on outfit perfect for Autumn. It's been getting a bit colder here so I've been wearing outfits like this to uni everyday. Nothing better than an anorak and jeans combo! You can easily dress this up too with boots instead of converse. I got this quilted jumper the other day from Glassons and I love it. I'll be buying the black version soon!

Jacket - Temt, Jumper - Glassons, Jeans - Dr. Denim via General Pants

Life of a Uni Student

Hey everyone! It's been so hectic at uni lately so thought I'd do a different kind of post for you today. Selfies (yay!). Uni is definitely the place I struggle to find outfits for, especially in the cold! The weathers been really nice lately so thought I'd take advantage. 
And I just got an internship at a PR company! Its awesome experience, so I've been wearing some of the items below but dressed up. I got to go to an event the other night with them and it was great!
Let me know if you guys like posts like this, because it's so much easier taking photos myself. Getting someone to take all your outfit posts is so hard when you're short on time like I am recently!

1. Vogue Fashion top, Living Doll shorts, Sportsgirl bag
2. Sportsgirl Vest, Cotton On top, Sportsgirl shorts
3. Sportsgirl top, Dr. Denim jeans, Sportsgirl bag
4. Minkpink Scorpio Rising dress

I'm backkk! Updates!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the complete lack of posting over the past few months. I know its no excuse but work has been hectic and whenever I have a day off no one that can take photos for me is! But I've bought a tripod and plan to change that.
It was my birthday last week and I got some gorgeous presents, these below are my favourites!
 I finally got a Marc Jacobs watch! After years of lusting over them, I finally decided to get one. Choosing which one was so difficult though! I also got 5 pandora rings, these two are my favourites and on my other hand I wear a beautiful amethyst one and two others, I'll post a photo of them later :)

And I bought a Mimco bag! I also got a matching purse. I absolutely love this bag, the quilted back is my favourite.

Have any of you guys got any of these? What do you think about pairing rose gold and silver in the same outfit?
