The Art of Bullet Journals

Hello Lovers,

The art of bullet journals.. have you heard of it??

This new hip way of keeping your life in order has grown in popularity across the world thanks to one key site.. i’m looking at you ‘Pinterest’!

This trend is something I myself tested for the past 4 months. I thought it looked like fun and may be something I could really get into! But much to my dismay I’m sad to report it just really isn’t. God is it time consuming let me tell you! I can’t help but revert back to my usual diary as I just don’t have the time to sit there and design my spread. Diaries are meant to keep you managing your time well correct? I don’t see how doodling is helping me achieve this.

Alas, the inner trend setter in me wishes I became an advocate for this arty trend but my OCD left me worrying about how perfect the designs were and less about organizing my week.

Below I’ve left some well executed designs, but you be the judge and let me know if this is something you partake in!

Prada or Nada

Hello Lovers,

It has been a hot minute since we last spoke, I have been neck deep in my handbag obsession. If you’re anything like me.. when you get onto a good thing you go crazy for it! Right now I’ve broken the cardinal rule of fashion lovers and have delve into the market of fake designer bags! I know, I heard you gasp!!

Alas, not all of us are Jaclyn Hill or Kylie Jenner so the price of a Hermes bag is just a little far stretched. I have come across a site called ‘Ioffer’ – You’re welcome! It is a online store with thousands of sellers that create replica bags from brands you love: Channel, Gucci, Prada and so many more!

It does take a expert to spot a good seller so I urge you to read the reviews before purchasing anything however I do have to say for the AUD$25 you’re paying you can’t be too mad.

Below I’ve left some of my current orders – I’ll do a full site review when my order arrives! -Happy shopping my fashion lovers!!

Breathing not so natural

Hi Lovers,

My chest is tight, i’m finding it hard to breath. There is no real reason, I just am. I don’t know but I feel like this is the anxiety my friends talk about.

I’ve got the stinging pain in my throat that you feel when you’re holding back tears, the clouded head that makes you feel consumed by sadness for no particular reason. I don’t know, I think it’s just one of those weeks when anything could go wrong and makes you feel like no one truly values you. Do you know what I mean?

This week i’ve just been gliding through the motion with this constant feeling of only just holding myself together. I’m not far from a drama queen but God I feel off.

Am I the only one that feels like this?

Karma removes the drama

Hey lovers,

It’s been a while hasn’t it?

First of all thanks for waiting, I do love those of you that have reached out on twitter!

Karma I’d say this has had to have been the theme of July for me.

I have endured some pretty touch friendship moments in the past few weeks and I finally admitted to my family I can’t take anymore! I took some leave from work just to stop, reflect and breathe. It helped, I don’t want to say I had a breakdown but looking back on it all I can think is that is exactly what it was.

I struggle sometimes to understand what I have done to people for them to have such strong dislike towards me, I wish I could read minds!

My partner said something to me in this slightly dark time that struck a cord ‘ Have you ever thought maybe you aren’t the problem but the goal?’ This translates to ‘ Have you ever thought maybe they look at you and see your successes and it upsets them they don’t have the same? He’s pretty profound – I really think the kids an old soul ( He gets really grumpy over parking lines and staying up late haha).

So my lovers, I urge you to reflect and to realise maybe that person that has it out for you is just like our mum’s told us ‘ just jealous’

With all my love,

Ciao x

 

RIDE OR DIE – Skincare

Hello Lovers,

After a few crazy days I’m back!

I thought I might do something a little different in todays post, as I am a qualified makeup artist I thought I might give you some of my Ride or Die skincare products. These are the products I use religiously! These are all available at Mecca!

Makeup Remover:

  • Garner Micellar water – AUD $13- It works a treat if you put it on a makeup wipe highly recommend

Cleanser:

  • Mario Badescu Acne facial cleanser – AUD $22 – I use this night and day it is so unbelievably affordable and works a charm, I’ve had the same bottle for at least 6 months it just never seems to run out!

Toner:

  • Mario Badescu Aloe Vera Toner – AUD $22 – Is incredibly good, I tend to find the best results can be reached if you lean towards being loyal to one brand. They create products that complement their own.

Spot Treatments:

  • Mario Badescu Drying Lotion – AUD $24- This is a cult favourite and is as good as the reviews! Great low cost alternative to the more expensive options.
  • DRUNK ELEPHANT T.L.C Glycolic Night Serum – AUD $132 – Now before you run away, this is my forever gold item. I don’t as you can see spend a ridiculous amount on my skincare but this is my one exception. It is incredibly good at getting rid of black head and spots overnight I truly can’t live without it.

Hydration  Moisturiser:

  • DRUNK ELEPHANT B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel- AUD $75- I use this one after all my cleansing at night and straight after my shower in the morning. The key to great makeup is great skincare.

 

That’s all my loves,

Ciao x
