Month 6; Rimmel stay glossy lipgloss

Hello Everyone! 

We are half way through my 12 products; 12 months and I'm having so much fun! This month I couldn't decide which product to choose but I ended up choosing Rimmel's stay glossy lipgloss. 

I was so excited to try this lipgloss and it didn't disappoint. I adore it!

The colour I chose is "all day seduction" 


I quite like the packaging, it's simple but still rather pretty. Not to mention impossible to damage.

I've never used an applicator this shape before and I'm loving it, it's a little more flat than usual which means it's a lot easier to apply to the lips.

I usually find with lipgloss that it is rather sticky and seems to just vanish quite quickly, this wasn't the case. It was true to colour, tasted surprisingly good and wasn't sticky at all!

It is also very inexpensive. 
I've included the 3 countries I have the most readers.

UK: £6.29
USA: $4

I am definitely going to be buying many more of these in the near future. Have you tried this lipgloss, what are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below!

Month 5; ELF Eyebrow Kit

Hello Everyone! 

It's month 5 of my 12 products, 12 months!
I know I'm a little late with this post but being in Australia means shipping often takes much longer. However, I recently received my ELF eyebrow kit in the mail and I was so excited! 

I find it super hard to find a brow colour that is light enough for my colouring - I'm extremely blonde and pale - so I ordered the lightest colour they had. Ash. 

The packaging is quite basic which I rather like. Open it up and all you see is the product, the brush and a small mirror. It's ideal if you're on the go! 

Although it is very light it is still too dark for my face so I was so sad. Other than that I couldn't find anything wrong with this product! It applied easily, even with just the brush provided, and lasts for quite a while. 

I was quite impressed as I only spent $13. If you're looking for a reasonably priced brow kit this may be the one for you. Unfortunately it's just too dark for me. Well done ELF, I'll be back (just maybe not for my brows)! 
 If you know any good brow kits for blonde hair I would really appreciate it.

John Green Obsessed

Hello Everyone! 

If you don't know me personally, which many of you don't, you won't know that I was the biggest book worm at school. Maybe not high school so much but definitely in primary. I thought I would try my best to rekindle my love of books and also put out a new post for you! 

I thought rather than always talking about beauty I could branch out a little and get you all involved. Over the past month I have found myself buying an awful lot of books but I sadly have only finished one. I can't help but think that little Georgia would be so disappointed in my pitiful efforts.

Nonetheless this is more or less just aimless chatter about things I've been enjoying over the past week. This Tuesday I've chosen John Green. I blame Tumblr but really John Green deserves every bit of attention he is getting. 

I've just finished Looking For Alaska and I'm about to start The Fault in Our Stars right after this is posted! I can tell you I was wary when I purchased these as they are super popular but trust me when I say they are 100% worth it. I don't want to go into too much detail about the book because I would hate to ruin it for you but I can say that John Green has a way of making you feel exactly how he wants you to feel. I could keep going but I'll stop myself before this goes from chatter to rant. 

So, have you read any of John Greens books? Do you plan to, or which is your favourite?
I would love some suggestions on what you would like to see on my blog.  
I have plenty more planned for my little blog so hang tight!

Birthday Haul

Hello Everyone! 

It feels like forever since I've made a blog post, maybe that's because I haven't posted since the beginning of the month. Although, I got a new laptop so it looks like I'll be posting more than you can imagine from now on! 

My birthday was on May 17th so I've been a busy little bee trying to organise all of my accounts and doing all that boring stuff (no one told me how annoying it is turning 18). I thought I would share with you some of the things I got for my birthday - not all beauty related but I'm sharing them anyway because I'm excited!

1. 15" MacBook Pro

2. Real Techniques makeup brush kit - core collection


3. Rimmel wake me up foundation - 100 ivory

4. Bobbi Brown makeup manual 

5. Ricardo Elite luggage - 28" Sausalito superlite

6. Benefit Bronzer - Hula 

I kept this rather brief as I am doing reviews on most of the products so I'll go into much more depth.
I did get a few little things also but I think thought I'd keep it short and sweet and only add the larger items and beauty products. 
I could probably bombard you with millions of selfies taken on photobooth but I will save that for another day. Let me know in the comments below if you have any of these items, I love talking to you all! 


•note to self - take photos during the day or they will turn it absolutely rubbish
