Thoughts of the week…

01) Magic for dogs.

02) The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Movie Trailer is rather underwhelming.

03) Sephora are apparently having their VIB 15% off sale this week, and I already have a few things on my wishlist. Can I resist?

04) I have so many TV shows to catch up on, but all I’ve wanted to watch lately is My Kitchen Rules (sad, I know). I’ve also started re-watching LOST, as my boyfriend had never seen it before and I convinced him that he simply NEEDED to watch it. It’s still an awesome show, and luckily I seem to have forgotten most of what happens.

05) It was revealed that Prometheus 2 will be hitting cinemas in 2015, which excites me no end. I LOVED the first film, and I can’t wait to see what happens in part two. I think Independence Day 2 is coming out next year too. What a wonderful world we’re living in.

06) 33 Animals You’re Definitely Not The Boss Of.

07) Mythbusters are touring Australia this year, and I snapped up tickets during the week.

08) This video makes me very glad to have my two feet on the ground.

09) If you’ve not already entered my Subtle Energies giveaway, be sure to head on over to the original post and sign up!

10) I picked up a couple of goodies at Priceline during the week, as they were having their 2-for-1 sale on Revlon lip products. I think Revlon’s matte balm stick in ‘Standout’ could be my new favourite lip colour.

Product Review: Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Care Pack

My skin has been moody lately, and I’m blaming it on the change of weather. I’ve had dry patches popping up on my forehead but the skin on my cheeks and nose seems to be staying as oily as always. My skin needed some heavy duty moisturizing, and I found it in the form of the Weleda Iris Hydrating Range. I’m a huge fan of the almond range from Weleda, so I was excited to try these products out. I expected the scent to be a heavy floral, but both the day and night cream have a light citrus-floral fragrance that I quite like. Now, despite my face being quite dehydrated, the day lotion is too much for me to wear during the daytime due to the jojoba oil content. Having said that, I feel like this lotion would be a Godsend for the truly dry skinned girls out there. I’ve been wearing both the day and night cream in the evening, and I love the luxurious feeling of applying the night cream after my Clarisonic. Both of the creams contain nourishing oils (day: jojoba, night: almond), with the night cream containing shea and cocoa butter for additional softness. If you’re in the market for a heady duty hydrating cream, either one or both of these are definitely worth checking out. The Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Care Pack retails for $49.90 AUD (currently $37.40 as the duo pack is 25% off until the end of march), and is available for purchase from Weleda online (please note: this product was sent for consideration for review). Additionally, in March/April you can save 25% when you purchase the One-Step Cleanser & Toner, and in April/May you can purchase the Wild Rose Smoothing Day Cream and receive the Wild Rose Smoothing Night Cream free.
