the sun club

Be a part of the ‘sun’ club, Everything will glow for you 

This matte bronzer from Essence does not disappoint, and 15g for $7.15, it is something you need to get.
I am not the tannest of the bunch and even though this bronzer is supposed to be for darker skin it seems to go well for me (but if you are super pale go with a lighter option). It warms up your face nicely and can also be used as a contour because it is matte. It is also available for blondes or lighter skin. 
I am really happy with this purchase. Which bronzers do you really like?
This item was bought with my own money and I was not sponsored to do this post.

diy earring jacket

Earring jackets are the perfect addition to a minimal outfit without making your jewelry over the top. Here is how to make one …

You will need:
crimp clasp
small beads (I have used some fake pearl beads)
hot glue gun + glue
earrings of your choice

How to:
1. Fold the crimp clasp out so it lays flat (this will give you an area to glue the beads to)
2. Choose how you want your beads to sit so they will be visible when the jacket is placed behind your earlobe.

3. Glue the beads on using enough glue to make them stick but not too much as you will then see the glue.
4. Trim any glue strands that are left and your earring jacket is ready to wear. To place on your ear first put in your stud then the earring jacket with the flattest part of it against your earlobe then put on the earring back.
TIP You could make only one of these for an edgy look.

With bare feet in summer a toe ring can look really nice, just make sure your toenails have a pretty polish on!
4. White Eyeliner
I can't remember where this is from but this month i have really been liking creating a white cateye.

back to school

On the first day of highschool I thought it would be a great idea to bring all of my equipment that I could need for school, and by all I mean ALL! I brought every single book, art brushes, a calculator, the sport uniform and more. Doing that left me with a sore back, broken drink bottle and a new mindset. Now four years later, on the first day of school I bring a book, a pen and my lunch an that is about it!

Good luck to those who are returning to school after the 6 week summer holidays we will all be waiting another few hundred days for. I hope this year is organised and that you have heaps of fun along the way.

the london look


Rimmel has to be my favourite 'drugstore' makeup brand. 

The other day I was looking in the makeup section of my local target and I saw this cute baby pink makeup bag. Inside it had 4 Rimmel makeup products - eyeliner, mascara, lipstick and nailpolish and all for $10! I had to buy it.

Lasting Finish Lipstick in '170 ALARM'
A classic cool toned red lipstick.

Precious Stones Nail Polish in 'Diamond Dust'
This sparkly nailpolish is so pretty and only 2 coats are needed.

Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves Mascara in 'Extreme Black'
This mascara lengthens your lashes and adds a welcome curl.

Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eye Liner in 'Taupe'
Taupe with a slight shimmer, looks great on the tightline and/or waterline as well as lasting because of the waterproof formula.

A fun, arty magazine full of powerful and inspiring women.

An independent fashion magazine about fashion, art, beauty, music and films.

The fashion bible, showing runways, trends and some of the biggest models in the editorials.

Such a nice powder, with light coverage and a matte finish that goes on so smoothly with the sponge applicator or a powder brush.

3. Ulta 3 Nailpolish in 'Earl Grey'
I haven't taken this off since I got it! It is a taupe colour that suits many skintones and goes with everything.
