Wedding Cakes!

As you all know I am getting married, I just met with the baker and she is awesome!! Her cakes are unbelievably delicious! You can find her website here.

She asked me what kind of cakes I wanted and I wanted a textured sort of cake, with soft pink and cream flowers (not too many!! I am not a flowery kind of girl hahah), so these are the cakes I showed her! But then, she showed me this awesome hundreds and thousands cake!! Omg it's amazing!!

Can't wait for to see my actual cake!!!

Sneak Peek: Smokey Cat Eyes

I was playing around with makeup and viola! Definitely could've worked on it a little bit more! Wedding season has been crazy busy for me as well, at least 2 weddings per day on the weekend! It's good but definitely very tiring, good thing I love my job!

FOTN: 1 Eyeshadow

This shows that you don't need a million eyeshadows to have an awesome makeup look! I was in such a rush tonight that I actually only used 1 eyeshadow!

Hayfever Go Away!!!

If any of you suffer with hayfever then you know how annoying it is to deal with for 3 months out of the year! I've tried EVERYTHING under the sun and nothing seems to work!

My eyes itch!!! Oh my gosh!! Which means... My eyes are swollen :( Dear Lord, I look like I've been punched!

Must be in the genes (my dad worked in textiles all my life), because I adore looking at pretty materials and can spend hours just perusing through.

FOTD: Smokey Eyes With Colour, Courtesy of Lisa Eldridge

As you all know, I am OBSESSED with Lisa Eldridge! I think she is amazingly talented and one of the few REAL Make up Artists on YouTube. Her videos are always innovative, informative and I can always rely on them to inspire me when or if I have a lull with make up. 

About a week ago, she posted up a smokey eye look with colour that I fell in love with, so I decided to recreate it. It's not EXACTLY the same, but a LOT of the steps are from the video, which can be found here


Garnier Tinted Roll-On - Light/Medium - Used on imperfections. I use this sometimes instead of foundation because I like the consistency
Josie Maran Argan Illuminizer - Used on cheekbones to highlight
Chanel Soleil De Tan De Chanel - Used to contour

MAC Painpot - Blackground - Used as a base on the lids and on lower lash line
Inglot Eyeshadow - Matte 379, Matte 386, Matte 338, Pearl 450, Pearl 449, D.S 478

Beautiful Bridesmaids Makeup

I did a bridal party this weekend and I loved the make up so much that I ended up doing it on myself that night!!

I think this kind of a look is so universally flattering!

Woahhhh there... Update + BIG NEWS!

Wow... Have I neglected this blog or WHAT! 

I'm not even going to make excuses or justify why I haven't been around because this time around, the reason is very personal and I don't think I can find the strength to talk about it at the moment. Maybe I will divulge at a later date.

I do have a surprise............................................................................................................................................................................................................

I'M GETTING MARRIED! In conjunction with the reason mentioned above, the boyfriend (well husband... as we have signed the registry) have pushed our wedding date to January 27th next year. Yes... I do know that that is only a few months away BUT I really want to do this because it will make someone that I love very much, very happy. I've already decided and organised most things for it and now it's just waiting for the dress and a few different bits and pieces. 

I am still doing make up and at the moment it is CRAZY busy as it is wedding season here in Australia, so I have been booked out pretty much every weekend. I've also made a website for my work! It can be found on this LINKY LINK :)

Other than working, I haven't really been doing too much... my weight loss thing that was happening... well, I think I've realised that I love food too much... I can't NOT indulge. I've fallen off so many times and as disappointed as I am in myself for doing so, I'm not unhappy about it. I have been eating cleaner lately, less carbs, less processed food as I'm trying to just change my lifestyle rather than crash diet to try and lose weight for the wedding. 

Now time for some photos of stuffs that you guys have missed out on!
