ZA Christmas Limited Edition Colour Set

As you may already know, lately I have been trying out a lot of the new products from the beauty brand, ZA. I was very lucky to be able to try out this new limited edition colour set that is out in time just for Christmas. The set contains a eyeshadow palette (there are two colour options – silver or gold), and each comes with two different shades of Rich Glam Liquid Rouge. The sets come pre-wrapped with a pretty little bow, so it’s good to gift straight away! The value of these sets is pretty impressive, as all these products are worth $56, however this set only retails for $29.99.

Skinnies Sungel SPF 30 Review

Hi lovelies!

Today’s review is on quite a unique product, it’s a sunscreen but not as you normally know it. The Skinnies Sungel is a sunscreen that comes in a gel formula rather than your traditional lotion. Where traditional sunscreens contain mainly water, Skinnies Sungel contains no water at all making it extremely concentrated, meaning that you have to apply it less and therefore use less product. It also means that when you sweat or decide to go swimming, that the water causes traditional sunscreens to simply wash off. We all hate having to reapply sunscreen every couple of hours while at the beach, however this unique gel formula means you only need to apply once!

Skinnies Sungel is an SPF 30, and it  remains at a SPF 30 level even after swimming for 80 minutes. It’s is designed to stay on your skin, and unless you remove it with soap and water (or vigorous towel rubbing) it’s going to protect your skin from the sun all day.

Xmas Gift Ideas For HIM

I don’t know about you but I find that the men in my life are awfully hard to buy for! Unless guys have a particular hobby that they enjoy, they can be very hard to think of fun presents for. While socks and undies are practical, they aren’t particulary exciting! I’ve put together two gift guides to help give you some ideas for presents for the guys in your life. We all have different budgets so there’s  under $70 and under $30 options – and not a sock in sight!

I hope these are helpful, and make sure you leave a comment below and let me know what you are buying for your boyfriend/partner/father/brother/grandad/male friend this year!

Sarah Styles: Pretending It’s Summer

Hi lovelies!

I’m back with some outfit posts! I’m so excited to be back doing some more outfit and fashion posts for you all. This was today’s outfit for a day at work. I checked the weather this morning and it was supposed to get to 23 degrees. I donned my chiffon dress and no tights (for the first time this summer) and I went to work without my jacket. It was all pretty exciting really! Unfortunately the Met Service totally lied to me, and I think we were lucky to get to 18 degrees. It also rained. So today’s outfit was slightly impractical, and I half froze to death, but I do really love this outfit!

The dress is from Cotton On, and I’ve owned it for a few years now. I love the shirt-style dresses, and the elasticized waist makes it look so flattering. All outfit details are below. Next time I’ll take my photos on my camera rather than my phone as the colour balance in these pictures is a little off! Apologies!

Lime Crime Lipstick “Coquette”

A couple of months back I made my  first ever Lime Crime lipstick purchase. While I own a couple of the Velvetines, I was yet to try their lipsticks. These are very much raved about by many in the beauty industry for their extreme pigmentation and creaminess and I was keen to test this out for myself. I couldn’t decide between Coquette and Babette so I went into my local Cosmic Corner to swatch them. While there isn’t too much difference, Coquette is a slightly more neutral toned nude compared to Babette which is a little warmer and pinker. Unfortunately Babette was sold out, so that made my choice easy, and Coquette became my first ever Lime Crime lipstick.
