Beauty :: Shoe Lust

I'm totally obsessed with this shoe from Hannah's. I actually tried it on in the shop, it's so tall! But gorgeous.



I'm off to Cup Day this year, which is quite big here in Christchurch. I think it will be especially good this year because we're so limited to the places we can go out to now. Since there is only like one club in the whole of Christchurch! And I've only been there once.

I've never been to Cup Day before. Everyone gets really dressed up and there's fashion competitions etc. I bought my dress from ASOS, and was really impressed with the fast shipping! I'm not so impressed with the actual dress, but I'm sure I can make it work.

Pictures to come...on cup day probably!

As always, these eyeshadows show up more vibrant with a primer, but can still be worn without.

EOTD :: October 4th

Today I did my eyemakeup a bit differently.

I used Dark Heart Design's "Tequila Sunrise" as the main colour, then added a dark purple colour from a palette I have around the outer and upper eyelid. It turned out to look more blue against the yellow though!


Something a little different anyway! I love playing with different colour combinations. Lime Crime is having a 55% off sale tomorrow, and I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to resist! I'm really into gold eyeshadows at the moment, which is a complete change for me.

I think I need to get some more eyeshadow brushes. More precise ones.

Do you have any recommendations?

Last night for tea I made Chicken and pineapple cous cous. It was a good combination!

Beauty Review :: Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Shampoo

I have been using Dove shampoo and conditioner for a while now, and have had a pretty good experience with it. I recently ran out of the shampoo and thought I would try something new, to see how it goes.

I've heard a lot of good things about Herbal Essences (and some not so good things) so decided to give this one a go.

It's specifically for long hair to prevent from breakages, split ends and damage.

Known for the smell of their shampoo, it has a nice fragrance but I can't really review on this part. I'm one of those people that after not even 5 minutes hair product/perfume etc is gone, no trace left of it. It's very annoying! The smell from the bottle seems nice though!

I've been using this shampoo for 2 weeks now. I can't say I've noticed any drastic changes in my hair (good or bad). It only cost me around $4, so it's probably worth what I paid. To me, it's just another shampoo that doesn't do anything special.

 3/5

Have you tried any of the Herbal Essences shampoos? What do you think of them?

I went to a wholefoods store this morning and got some falafel mix...so excited for tea tonight! Pictures to come on Monday. I hope you're all enjoying your weekend.
