Urban Decay Naked Smoky

L1070112

A couple of months ago Australia finally got Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky eyeshadow palette. Since I bought Naked 3 earlier in the year I had been interested in getting another but found it hard to choose between 1 and 2. Then the Smoky came out. Having what I think to be the combination of the best colours from the first two palettes it was an instant buy for me! If you’re looking to do cool, warm, smokey and natural looks then this palette could be for you! It seriously does it all…

Holiday Giving: The Smith Family

Screen Shot 2015-11-20 at 4.20.27 PM

The holiday season is usually full of buying presents, decorations, food and drink. Everyone deserves to treat themselves at the end of the year but it is also an excellent time to consider those less fortunate and give a little extra to those we don’t know. As an atheist I must admit I’m not entirely comfortable with giving to the usual charities as they tend to be religious based. Not that I’m saying religion is bad or that those who wish to give to those kinds are wrong. They still do good work and if you want to support them you should. But if you’re like me and looking for a good secular charity, in Australia, The Smith Family is an excellent choice.

The Smith Family is a group that helps disadvantaged kids get the most out of their education through all sorts of support programs so that they can make their own brighter future! Every year they run a Christmas Appeal and you can make one-off donations, monthly payments or sponsor a child. The minimum for a single donation is only $2. Even just $10 can go towards helping local Australian children believe in themselves!

You can donate from this page!

This isn’t a sponsored post or anything. It’s just a charity that I choose to donate to, something I’ve given a lot of thought about and believe they do excellent work! As someone who loves to learn and hopes to make their future in education/research I love what The Smith Family do!

Review: Sephora Australia Website and Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop

Screen Shot 2015-11-17 at 8.28.05 AM

Over a year after opening their Sydney store, and after opening a random second Sydney store, Sephora Australia finally has a website. They bought out the Singapore online seller Luxola and you can see a review I did of them last year here. The launch was pretty anti-climatic. They had a countdown and everything but their website did not launch their exclusive brands from the beginning. It’s been open for awhile now and we still do not have a whole Kat Von D range nor any actual holiday collections (I’d love that Tarte blush palette you know!) Finally a full Becca collection was launched with their infamous Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfection in Champagne Pop. Let’s look at the shipping from the new Sephora.com.au shall we…
