The Week #143




Makeup and Fashion join forces: I'll be honest, Mac's past fashion collabs, the ones I can remember at least have always left me a bit underwhelmed. Their latest, with Isabel and Ruben Toledo however is a totally different story. If you saw my Instagram yesterday you'll know the packaging had me mesmerised. Those illustrations are just too cute. I'll keep you updated on the lip products I was sent and possibly the blush if I manage to track it down. If you're tempted, mark down March 2nd in your diaries.

A Mint Bag: Back in the day I used to be notorious for my ridiculous collection of handbags. Nothing fancy, just Roxy and Billabong numbers which I thought were amazing. I have one handbag which I've worn to death and is really on its way out so I'm on the hunt for alternatives. Zara's City Bag holds a place in my mental wishlist, as does the Chanel 2.55. I'm also liking the look of this one from Cambridge Satchel Co. It's so pretty and you can personalise it with some embossing too so it's extra unique. 

Blemish Busters: Yep, I am 22 and I still get blemishes. My skin's not really responding to any of the spot treatments I have at the moment either. The ones with high alcohol content just dry my skin out and create awful under the surface blemishes. So, I need your help. Which spot treatments do you recommend and love? 

Masks for your Lips: *Resisting the urge to use one or two dreadful advertising puns*. Last month I picked up a mini set from Bite containing their popular Agave Lip Mask and also a lip scrub. The scrub is a bit 'meh'. It's not amazing, and I definitely prefer the Fresh Sugar one. The lip mask is as amazing as everyone says it is. Thick, but not too thick and it drastically improves the appearance and texture of your lips.

Pretty Sweet: Kikki K, oh how I love thee and your tempting new collections. Their latest, Life is Sweet has recently landed in stores. Think pinks, mint greens and plenty of metallic foil accents. It's just gorgeous and Kikki K are constantly lifting their game. Go check it out this weekend if you're in New Zealand or Australia.

*As always, I hope you all have amazing weekends! This week's been good and bad. I had to pass over an opportunity which I was disappointed about, but on the plus side I feel like I got a fair bit done this week...behind the scenes at least! This weekend's looking a bit chill (as always) and will be filled with some spontaneous plans which I like every now and then. See y'all on Monday with a mystery post (ooh). Ciao xo.

  1. My favourite spot treatment option is always benzoyl peroxide. It's available at pharmacies under the brand Benzac, and I always get the 5% cream. Some people freak out about the fact that it can bleach fabric but it's fine to use on your skin and just make sure you wash your hands before touching clothes etc after using it.

  2. Is that quite harsh? I don't know anything about it but just the name makes it sound...severe.

  3. Not really, it can be harsh in the stronger concentrations but I don't use those. It doesn't make my skin irritated or anything.
