Mind, Body & Soul Monday - Detecting Nutritional Deficiencies - What vitamins you need to fix these issues NOW!

Hi Beauties,
We all know that a healthy diet provides everything the body needs but most of the time, our busy lifestyles get in the way or in my case chocolate cake, lollies, cookies.. You get the gist of what im trying to say. 

I try my BEST to be healthy & i want to eventually go organic for the most part but i cant live without sweets! I just cant do it! So today i though i would talk to you about the vitamin deficiencies that occur with finicky eating patterns, stress or a poor overall diet.

Sunday Round Up - Links I Loved This Week!

Its already Sunday, Can you believe it? Back to work tomorrow! Ugh Monday is always such a hard day! This week i found myself looking over the same links over and over again!

First and for most is my Friday Favourites Post (here) Its the longest post I've ever written and it was also a little scary because i wasn't sure how my readers would react. I think honesty is the best policy in all aspects of life so I'm really proud of the guts it took me to right this post and i hope its also made some people who are sceptical see this is actually very natural, safe and not the duck lip stereotype that comes with it!

If any of you are familiar with the site you will know the beauty editor Kristina always brings her A game when she writes a post! She is so informative and doesnt shy away from giving fellow bloggers and readers the best tips and tricks of the trade. This week she organised her makeup space. Something i have been needing to do verrrrrrry badly! Take a look (here)

Friday Favorites - Lip Fillers! (Not Botox) The Controversy Regarding them, why I have and love them, AND what you need to know if your considering them!

Hi Lovelies!

Today i want to talk about lip fillers. The reason this is a Friday Favorite is because i have had them done (for the third time) and if i am using, trying, wearing something more than once it counts as a favorite of mine. I want to talk about this because i think before doing them everyone should be properly informed. I'm in no means an expert and im not telling you to go out and do this, because if its not for you, its not for you. It is a sensitive and controversial topic for some but im sure all of my readers have open minds and wont judge this. 

If its something you have thought about, Googled, or even considered because a friend has done it or its been a recommendation at a beauty clinic, you should continue reading. One thing i do show you is the REAL before and after photos! When you research lip fillers you see the good, settled perfect lip minus the swollen one you have for 1-3 days afterwords and that's something you need to take into consideration before you try this.

Wear It Wednesday - Lazy Day Items

lazy day items
Hello! As you all know from my previous Wear it Wednesday (here), Autumn/Winter are my favourite seasons i just personally think the fashion is better! The options are endless and you can layer, layer, layer! I love nothing more than a knitted sweater paired with jeans but what i like more than that? Tracksuit pants, runners and a jumper! 

Today i put together my Autumn lazy day lists. We all have a lazy day, some of us have the luxury of having them more than once or twice a week, but the majority, its usually just a Saturday or Sunday. Below is my collection of lazy day skin and beauty products, outfits and a little decor mixed in because I'm decor crazy and at the moment im loving monochrome (black&white) decor!

I get so happy when I'm tagged in blogger tags! I think its the best way to let everyone in  a little more personally! Thank you to my blogging bestie - Bekaa (here)

Scenario 1 - You have to get rid of all of your foundations and you can only keep one high end and one drug store foundation, which ones do you keep? 

Shit thats a tough one! Drugstore would be Dr Lewinns Anti Ageing (lol i know anti ageing sounds funny but its the best coverage and about $29 AUD from Priceline. My high end would have to be my Bobbi Brown Cream Finish foundation its thick and creamy so you only need a tiny amount for full coverage!

Wear It Wednesday - Autumn Looks Under $200

Autumn is among us in Australia! I personally love the cooler months because the fashion in my opinion is so much better! I love knits, jeans, scarfs, leather jackets and ah im just a big Winter girl. I mean i need that Summer sun in my life, but playing with winter fashion is so much more fun. 

I have added my Autumn looks under $200. Nothing is better than dressing like a million bucks for a fraction of the cost. Below i have added my picks and ideas. If you see me walking down the street chances are i am in any of these outfits.

Mind, Body & Soul Monday - Healing Places

We all heal from the inside and certain outside locations can help the process. Today I want to mention where and why these places are actually necessary for healing the mind and the body.
I wrote this down in a notebook from a tumblr post i found along time ago. All the credit in the world to whoever wrote this, you are amazing, i thank you and credit you <3

At the moment feel like I'm at a cross roads in my life, I'm 23 I'm not sure what I'm doing or where I'm going, all i know is i want to be rich and famous! Only kidding! I don't know what I'm looking for, i haven't had the best three years and i need to find myself again. Work wise, relationship wise, life in general. I'm just lost. Tell me I'm not the only one who has been in this awful place? How did you heal?

Friday Favorites - Benefit BENEFIT Benefit!

Lovers, I have been so exited to write this post for you!
I will admit it, I'm delayed in getting on the Benefit Cosmetics bandwagon. In the past i have only used the High Beam (here) which i might add is the best liquid highlighter so check it out! Now i can honestly say it is the BEST thing i have EVER done. If you aren't using Benefit i recommend you check them out now!

It all started on Wednesday when i went to the Benefit Brow Bar at our local department store (Knows as David Jones for my Aussie bloggers) I had a friend of mine do her brows at the bar and i was skeptical at first i mean first you are sitting in the middle of the busiest department store in Australia and if you have been to Sydney City David Jones its literally chaos, i have never seen that place quiet in my life, but her eyebrows came out PERFECTLY!

Friday Favorites - YSL Rouge Pur Couture

Im sorry! This post was meant to go out yesterday but i didn't schedule it right!
Today i want to talk about my new favourite lipstick! YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Rouge Rock. 

In my opinion its a deep red with a little bit of pink to it! I loooooove it!

It makes my lips look flawless. It is formulated so the texture actually adjusts to your lips making them look supple and smooth with a matt finish!

In my opinion long lasting too, i have only had to touch it up after my lunch breaks so i get about 5 good hours with one coat!

Suger Coated Sunday - Nutella Filled Strawberries!

Hi Beauties!

How has everyones weekend been so far? As it is getting colder in Sydney, Australia my sweet tooth is at an all time high. What better way than to finish the weekend? I have a really simple quick and easy Nutella stuffed strawberry.. or seven.. or ten.. I can't help myself!

Its easy as can be!

All you do is cut the top of the strawberry off and carve out the core with a small but sharp knife and volaaaaaa!

Put some Nutella in a small but microwave proof bowl or cup and heat for about 30 seconds. 

Use one teaspoon per strawberry, if your like me and love Nutella I'm guilty of forcing in two teaspoons! Im sure everybody has had chocolate fondue right? This is the lazy version as i like to call it. No dipping no dribbling just straight in your mouth. 

I honestly can't think of a better flavour combination! Mmmmm I'm still eating them as i type this, along side with catching up on the Vampire Diaries! Does anybody else watch this show? Damon Salvatore... Perfection!
