The Week #159




A Base Gem-I'll be honest, I usually struggle to find an affordable foundation that I'd use and recommend. Being on the paler side of things, I feel like cheaper foundations often alternate between being too pink or too orange. There's never really any middle ground. Well, I have finally found a foundation that I like from L'Oreal. Their new Infallible Pro Matte* foundation launched at the end of last month, alongside a mattifying primer and I really like them. This foundation is full coverage without the cakiness and is so lightweight. It feels like you have no makeup on and it looks so flawless. Love.

Some Assembly Required-This was one of the books we could vote for in the #WeTheBookDragons book club last month, I think, and I saw it in the library recently and gave it a read over the weekend. If you saw my last video you will have heard me talk about this book already but it tells the story of Arin Andrews, a transgender teen. He talks about growing up as a child with gender dysphoria and the bullying, struggles and then later triumphs and achievements. It's a really fascinating read and I highly recommend it. I want to read his friend Katie's book now too because she sounds just as inspiring.

Lipstick For A Cause-July honours a number of causes here in NZ, including #LookGoodFeelBetter, a charity that supports women with cancer and makes them feel special with things like makeup workshops, styling sessions and more. During July, every lipstick purchased in-store at Farmers will see $1 being donated to the charity. Not only is it a perfect time to treat yourself to a new lipstick, you can do some good too.

Lizzie McGuire 2.0-I'm a Hilary fangirl from way back, ever since I saw her in Casper Meets Wendy actually. Her vacation wardrobe in that film was #wardrobegoals. Anyway, Hilary is back with a new album 'Breathe In Breathe Out'. Anyway, I am currently obsessed with the song Sparks from this album. It's just so upbeat and makes me happy. The whole album's full of catchy, fun tracks. If you're a Hilary fan/love pop music then give it a listen.

A Handmade Affair-Recently I've been on a bit of an Etsy+shopping handmade spree. I think Etsy is the best place to find handmade gifts but there's also heaps of standalone stores on the internet. Pictured is Nook and Burrow, a store run by two ladies in Australia. They make gorgeous bookmarks like the ones above, prints and other cute crafty things. Check them out if you're #feelingspendy.

-Have the raddest of weekends everyone! This week's been quite busy-with a mix of work, play and party planning. My younger brother has his 21st party tonight so there's been a lot happening around that. This weekend I don't have any concrete plans as we have some family staying. Oh-I do want to watch The Lizzie McGuire movie because I have been too busy to watch the DVD I bought of it & I have another video to edit so keep an eye out for that xo.
