Spring Polish Picks

As you can probably tell from the picture above, I have a rather particular palette when it comes to the nail polish colours that I wear in Spring. I opt for light pinks, peaches and purples with the occasional coral shade thrown in for good measure. I picked out my top five favourite nail polish shades for Spring to share with you, and they are: Bloom ‘Flamingo Sands’, Sephora by OPI ‘How Cute Is That?’, Sephora by OPI ‘Casting Call’, b Collection by Bloom ‘Seychelles’ and Essie ‘Nice Is Nice’.

February Favourites

A fitting end to Summer, with my February favourites all bright and shiny and fresh. I used these products consistently throughout the month of February, and now I’m ready for the cooler months to start settling in so I can dig out my favourite Autumn/Winter products. My favourites in February were: Bath + Body Works Aruba Coconut Body Lotion, MAC Face & Body Foundation in N1, MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study, Bloom Nail Polish in Flamingo Sands & CO Bigelow Blueberry Rose Salve.

12 – The Body Shop Aloe Calming Toner
13 – Wella Enrich Moisturising Treatment
14 – Bloom Vanilla Bean Scented Soap
15 – Haus of Gloi Litchi Milk Tea Pumpkin Butter

I’m plodding along gradually with the products that I’m using up, and I slipped and ‘accidentally’ purchased a few things, so I’m not doing that well with sticking to the plan. Having said that, my spending has slowed down a LOT in regards to beauty products since starting this challenge. So far, so good!

December Favourites

December is always a busy month, what with me being COMPLETELY F*CKING OBSESSED WITH CHRISTMAS and all. I love Christmas, just ask anyone in my life and they will no doubt regale you with tales of how I baked them cookies and made them listen to that one Bing Crosby Christmas album three thousand times. Due to me being so busy with Christmas, I tend to keep things in my routine pretty simple and use less of a variety when it comes to beauty products than I normally would. My most reached for products in December were: Bath + Body Works Twisted Peppermint Body Lotion (I use this exclusively in December so now it will always remind me of Christmas… perfect), Muppets for OPI ‘Gettin Miss Piggy With It’ Polish (this makes for a great Christmas nail when layered over OPI Red), Bloom Lip Gloss in Shine, MAC Eyeshadow in Orb & Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso aka the most perfect blush to exist, ever.

Product Review: Bloom Lipgloss in Wanderlust

I needed a new peach-toned lip gloss so I hot-footed it over to the Bloom website to have a browse, because I was also interested in buying one of their sheer colour creams (which never eventuated btw but that is a whole different rant altogether). After checking out the colour range of the Bloom glosses I decided that Wanderlust was the one for me. And right I was because this gloss is beautiful, and exactly what I was after.

The gloss is richly pigmented but is sheer enough that I can wear it comfortably for day time despite my weird phobia of wearing brightly coloured lip products to the office. The gloss is quite thick and ‘tacky’ feeling on application, but I don’t really mind that as I know it just means that the product will last a lot longer on the lips. I really really love this gloss and will definitely check out more colours from the range in the future. The Bloom Lipgloss in Wanderlust retails for $25 AUD and can be purchased online from Adore Beauty.
