Graduated and on the Road!

I graduated! I'm officially the proud owner of a Communication and Media Studies degree. With a lot of confusion over the years I ended up graduating with a double major in Journalism and Professional Writing, and Marketing and Advertising (with minor studies in Graphic Design/Creative Arts.)
To celebrate I've been spending 3 whole months travelling around Europe and even into Morocco. After this trip I will have been to 26 Countries! Wow. Bye $$$
I'll update you when I'm closer to the end, but for now I'll leave you with some of my favourite pics from the trip.
Talk soon!

PR & Fashion Events in Florence!

I was lucky enough to get accepted into the Public Relations and Fashion Events course at IED in Florence, Italy! We spent 5 weeks studying by day and exploring by night (and every weekend!) The views of Cinque Terra have been one of my favourite travel moments thus far. Enjoy!

Thailand (and Contiki!)

After Vietnam we travelled on to Thailand where we did a 9 day Contiki. Nine days doesn't sound like a long time but when you spend 24/7 with them it feels like so much longer! We made some great friends from Canada and New Zealand - and I'm hoping I'll get a chance to go and visit them next year.

Earlier this year my friend Phoebe and I ventured to Vietnam and spent a few weeks travelling around. We started at Halong Bay, travelled back to Hanoi, then up to Sapa in the mountains, and to Hoi An.

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?
