Mask of Magnaminty

I made a trip to Lush at Pacific Fair on Saturday to have a look/smell of all the Christmas & Halloween products. I ended up walking out with Nightwing, Mask of Magnaminty, Breath of Fresh Air + samples of Baked Alaska & Sea Vegetable. Sam also found something he liked(Whoosh shower jelly) and bought before both himself and Michael decided to test out the toothy tabs and almost threw up from the taste which was sort of hilarious.

So tonight I finally tested out Mask of Magnaminty and Breath of Fresh Air. I started off applying it reasonably well but then I got to around my left eyebrow and accidentally slipped only to rub some into my hair. Once I finally spread the mask all over my face I set a timer for 15 minutes on my apple watch and got to relaxing.

When my timer went off, I began wetting my face and scrubbing for a few minutes then started to wash my face, only to realise that I’d left my towel downstairs so I ran down having a Mrs Doubtfire melting face moment. Once I had washed Mask of Magnaminty off, I gave myself a light spray of Breath of Fresh Air and rubbed it into my skin a little. About an hour later, my face is still feeling incredibly soft.

I absolutely love this face mask, the minty smell and the feeling of scrubbing it all over my face. However, in the future I am definitely going to be more careful around my hair as it really does dry quickly.

Developing Lush Addiction!

Lush HaulI have recently gotten really into Lush products after buying some Ultrabalm a few months ago. I have since decided to do a few little blog posts on the products I buy. On the left I have my current stash which includes the following:
  Blackberry Bath Bomb
  Big Blue Bath Bomb
  Dragon’s Egg Bath Bomb
  Popcorn Lip Scrub
  Ultrablast Toothy Tabs

I got to test out the dragon’s egg bath bomb today after a bit of a stressful morning. It was nice to have a bit of colour surrounding me, when the bath bomb was placed into warm water it started to fizz (duh, like all bath bombs!), one section of the side wore away quicker than others which lead to an orangey-gold powder coming out into the water along with a bit of what looked like glitter.

After that the bath bomb started oozing its internals out it separated into three pieces and started popping audibly while floating around the bath all on its own, leaving white foamy swirls which if moved showed what looked orangey-gold water that sparkled.

After 30 minutes in the bath & I got out and had no glitter on me. However, the bath itself did have a fair bit left around it when I emptied it of water. It was quickly removed by washing it towards the drain. I am extremely happy with the experience and I look forward to using others from my stash.

I’m back!

After an extreme hiatus, I am back!
About a week ago I ordered
some stuff from boohoo
and it arrived today, so I finally
have something to take photos of.

I received this awesome hat & decided what
it really needed was to be paired with
my black milk inside out dress and a blazer.
Especially to make it uni appropriate.

After the Toyota Corolla finally died a few weeks ago, we needed to get
a new car as the repairs simply just weren’t worth it as who knew when it
would crap out on us again. So after a little price/fuel related research Sam
& I decided to go test drive a Suzuki Swift but because they only had a manual I
got the pleasure of being the one who did the test drive (thanks for not learning
to drive manual Sam 😝). Long story short I instantly loved the car and
decided we needed it so now we have a brand new swift in the garage.

You can shine no matter what you’re made of

I have admired these leggings from afar and finally picked them up at the Gold Coast
sample sale earlier in the year. The print was too
awesome to resist any longer,
I felt like I was some sort of super cool robot.

Despite being on the small side of medium and myself being a large I seem to be able to comfortably get into them and wear them around, I just wouldn’t dare, bend over or sit down. Hopefully they stretch over time and I can actually wear them outside the house.

Beauty is a sign of intelligence.

 Finally getting around to a specific post for my inside out dress(IOD),
Well at least one side of the Mucha Black Vs La Trappistine IOD, I keep favouring
the La Trappistine side 
as it is the most flattering side of the dress when it comes to my skin.

I jumped at the chance to own this dress back in February, I mean a dress that has two different
sides and both sides are artworks by Alfons Mucha, I would have been crazy to say no!

This dress also came in super handy when I was completing assessments for my first trimester
of graphic design. Both my Drawing & Colour and Visual Communication classes had
art movement assessments, I was pretty much begging for art nouveau even doing a redraw
when it came to picking the movements out of a bowl. I ended up combining Star Wars &
Alfons Mucha’s style to have art nouveau princess leia seasonal menu covers.

Mulled Wine Velvet

Finally getting around to wearing pieces that were bought as christmas presents
for me. It has been far too hot to wear this beautiful velvet mulled wine evil
cheerleader 2.0 but we are pretty much in winter, which means I can wear it when I want.

Despite sizing up from my usual size(medium) in skater dresses to a large for this dress,
it is still a little tight in the chest but it does start to stretch the more you wear it so its
not the end of the world that it was tighter when I first received it. The velvet has a
nice feel to it when you run your hand along it and in the light it has a nice shine.

Today also happens to be Day 12 of Black Milk’s pic a day may
challenge so here is a bonus photo of Sam & I in our Black Milk.
