I thought I'd do something a little different today and it comes in the form of my tips for travelling on your own. A lot of people don't like the idea of travelling solo, they think they'll get lonely or worry about not having anyone they can rely on if something goes wrong in a foreign city. While I love travelling with family or friends, travelling alone is definitely a different experience, especially if you do it for weeks or months at a time. I learned so much from it and can’t recommend it enough, especially if you’re nervous to do it, because it’ll teach you a lot about yourself and will probably improve your confidence too.Read More
There have been some ups and downs recently, but one of the biggest ups has been going to Melbourne for a girls' weekend in November. Tahlia and I went to visit Elly and Tenneil (who live together) and we had a great time eating and shopping and staying up til the early hours of the morning with Elly giving a dramatic reading of her pre-teen diary about all the boys she had crushes on. Tahlia, Elly & I relived our glory days by driving around listing to pop punk and Tenneil and I did our makeup together in the mornings like an IRL Get Ready With Me. I shot a roll of 35mm film so whenever I get that developed I might post some photos, but rest assured that even without visual evidence, I had a great time.
I've mentioned before that blood reds are my favourite shades to wear, and particularly if they're matte. I remember a few years ago hunting high and low for the perfect shade and not being able to find anything right. Luckily these days when brands launch new lip products, most of the time a deep red is in the mix. As someone who is more or less a connoisseur of red lipstick, trust me when I say that although to the untrained eye these might look like they're all the same, they're actually very different.Read More
I'm not sure why candles are such a thing in the beauty community, but there is something so enjoyable about a good home fragrance, and it's even better when they double as beautiful decorations too. There are a lot of brands out there and it can be hard to know what to buy when you don't want to sacrifice an arm and a leg, or your soul (I'm looking at you, Tom Ford). It's also pretty disappointing when you buy a nice candle only to find that you can hardly smell it when it burns, which in my experience often happens with the cheaper options. I've tried a few duds before, so I wanted to put together my favourite brands that I feel comfortable recommending and that I've never been let down by.Read More
