Priceline Sale Haul and a Few Bits and Bobs

Hey all, hope everyone is doing well. I've started to hit a lot at the moment so I haven't really felt like blogging but haul posts are super simple so I chucked some photos up. I always feel a massive lack of inspiration when I sit down to the keyboard. Anyway, drop a comment below if there's anything you really like to see that might give me some inspiration for what to post. Maybe I'm just not into blogging any more :P

Moving on! Priceline had a 40% off sale for a few days this week so obviously I couldn't resist the urge to grab some stuff...More than I planned bu luckily I got a bit of extra work so it doesn't matter haha.


 'cause you can never have enough green eyeliner, right? :P

This has so much hype, we'll see how it goes.

 The word 'butter' in the title kind'a got me

The next item is from a cute company actually in my region (or there abouts) called Kook Collars

 Green wrapping paper - how did she know?! :D

 Obviously wouldn't wear it with this outfit but you get the idea :P I really like it.

 Someone on reddit photoshopped some eyebrows on me:P Whadda you all think? :P

The MomenT in dusty green - eeee!

 I'm so in love!

Trying out some of the new make up acquisituions. Forgive my lack of foundation - eek :P

That's all for today - did any of my fellow Aussies pick up anything at Priceline in their sale?

5 Things I Gotta Own Before the End of the Year (But I Probably Won't)

1. A Stylish and Practical Hat

It's only spring and already here where I live in Australia our daily temps are hitting the mid '30s (Celcius obvs) and as someone who is always hiding from the sun (I'm sure many of you reading this can relate), I'm always trying to find something to shield be from the damaging rays.

A little while ago I got a free style mag in one of my Bella Boxes that had a page of style inspired by M*A*S*H (obviously - this caught my attention as a huge fan of the show and the colour green haha). Featured was 'The MomenT' hat in dusty green (shown below) by Fallenbrokenstreet, an Aussie brand. I immediately fell in love with this hat and several others and have since been coveting them furiously.

Here are a few others that I'd love to own:

 'The Dingo'

'The BaMbi'

There are heaps of really cute ones that I think would look amazing and add the finishing touch to an outfit whilst protecting your pretty face from the evil sun. So if you're the kind of person who likes hats, check 'em out.

2. Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Lipstick in 'Lovecraft'

I've never been a fan of KVD, I don't know enough about her to feel any way about her in fact but I mean...Come on...It's a beautiful dusty pink in a black studded bullet and best of all it's freakin' called 'Lovecraft'. I've been holding back the urge to find some way of getting myself a tube in case I'm able to grab one when Sephora FINALLY opens here in early December. Soon (hopefully), my precious...Soon...

3. More Night Vale Merch

Welcome to Night Vale takes over my life twice a month, I freakin' adore it; I'm obsessed with it and I want the world to bloody well know it.

These are a few things I've got my eye on in their store right now (but realistically I'd buy everything if I could)

Moonlight All-Night Diner Mug

Welcome to Night Vale grey hoodie

 All Hail Tee

4. A New All-Purpose Bag

My current satchel is around 7 or maybe 8 years old and is really starting to look a little worse for wear. I probably need to start thinking about replacing it and I'd like to get something in black this time, as the brown I had before definitely didn't always go so well with my attire. Would also like something a tiny bit wider so I don't have as much trouble fitting books/my kindle in my bag.

5. A New Computer


This is something I need more than anything but it also happens to be more expensive than anything else I need/want. The kind of specs I want don't come cheap and I know that it'd probably be a lot better value for money to just build my own desktop but given my living environment it'd be difficult to work with a desktop (I don't have a desk for one thing). Sigh.  just wanna play new release games already! (I'm looking at you Dragon Age 3...)

The shit people make is just amazing..

Do you have a top 5 things that are just eating away at you to own?

Look What the Bat's Dragged My Mail Box

I'm very fortunate to be friends with the very generous Kierra of Look What the Bats Dragged In, who sweetly grabs a few things from the Sydney Illamasqua store for me once in a while (if you ever happen to read this, Kierra, thank you so much!). She recently picked up some things from the Illamasqua 'Once' collection which I think came out some time nearing the end of August.

(Apologies for the even-crapper-than-usual photo quality)

 Cute :P

 Love the wrapping paper!

This is a cream eyeshadow - I've been slowly getting more and more into cream products lately and this one has just an amazing formula.

 I love layering this over the Taupe Maybelline Colour tattoo cream shadow. I'm seriously thinking of investing in the other cream shadows from the Once collection.

 Love the packaging too.

 So smooth

 Now this polish...Oh man. It's to die for. Illamasqua make my favourite polishes in the world but this colour is just breathtaking.

 The colour is called 'Melange', sorry it may be hard to see in the photo

 Kierra also managed to grab me the 'Elope' tester from the Illa store - the colour is my fav of all time and is now discontinued :(

 I also got some bonus samples, I'm so spoilt :D

All the Illa products have pretty much become permenant members of my make up/nail routine. I may need to get a back up of Melange if they ever decide to discontinue it, which apparently Illamasqua love doing to things I regularly purchase from them. Sigh, anyway that's all I have for now.

Over and out lovelies!

First Sleek Purchase

Today I took the plunge and made my first purchase of a Sleek eyeshadow palette. The online cosmetic-obsessed community seems to have nothing but good things to say about their products and at such low prices it seemed time to take the plunge.

The one I have ordered in the one pictured above, Ultra Matte VS - lots of dark, cool toned colours, plus I prefer matte everything to be honest.

Can't wait for it to arrive!

What have your experiences with this brand been? I'd love to know.

That's all for now,

I'm Not Dead...Yet (Mecca Haul)

Sorry for the break in posting lovelies, things had a little bout of furious activity round these here parts and then there was nanowrimo and even social endeavours - phew, stuff...Tiring.

Anyway I thought I'd post a small haul I got from Mecca a few days ago because they're easy posts and people seem to like to see what other people buy for some reason :P (I do too, I don't understand it but I do). Anyway, here we go.

 I ordered a few things I've had my eye on for ages

 Nars velvet matte lip pencil in Train Bleu


 Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in 'Ethereal Glow'

 Purdy packaging

 Reminds me of ice cream or something, I kinda wanna eat it haha. I already have the ALP in Ethereal Light and loved it. I tried this blush last night for the first time and it's so pretty and subtle, just the way I like blush to be.

 Samples! The perfume sample - holy shit! So nice! I'm really, really fussy about perfume and rarely wear it but something made make choose this sample....The name reminded me of Fallout New Vegas and the scent is just the kind of thing that I like. I'm not good at describing scents but it is sweet, I can tell you that much. The images it conjured were a Black Widow type character, roving the wastes of the post apocolyptic Mojave - someone who watches you through her scope as she plans what to do with the things she loots from your corpse, purposefully positioning herself up-wind from you so that the last thing you notice before you die is a sickly sweet scent upon the gentle desert breeze..Ahhh. I think the only thing holding me back from purchasing a full size is the price :-/

Moving on..

 Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Creme lipstick deluxe sample in 'Grace'

It's a pretty pinky nude colour but unfortunately I don't think it'd suit me because it has a peachiness to it and I can't wear anything peachy as it pulls very orange on my skin.

I haven't tried the other samples yet but hopefully will in the next few days...I love freebies.

Anyway that's all for now, have you done any recent purchasing? If so what? I wanna knowwwww
