Thoughts of the week…

01) The Breaking Bad series finale was all I could have ever hoped for and more. Perfect ending to a perfect show. I’m sad to see it go, but happy to see that it ended on a high.

02) It was announced this week that John Mayer will be coming to the West Coast Blues & Roots festival in Perth next year. I’m dying to see him, plus two of my favourite artists (Boy & Bear and Matt Corby) are also performing. Now I just need to convince someone to come with me.

03) I’ve embarked on the 30 day Ab & Squat Challenge. Feel free to join me! Also, don’t forget to sign up for Social Workout if you haven’t already.

04) Oh look, I bought the best Christmas t-shirt of all time.

05) One of my best friends got married last weekend and it was such a lovely day. Forget saving for a house, kids. It’s time to start saving for the wedding season that occurs every year after you hit the ripe old age of 25.

06) I’ve been listening to the xx on repeat for a couple of days. Their album ‘coexist’ is the perfect soundtrack/remedy for days where I’m stuck in the office working. I’ve also had Kings of Leon’s new album Mechanical Bull on heavy rotation. ‘Family Tree’ is my favourite song on the album at the moment.

07) I’m in LOVE with my Frida necklace from Stella & Dot. I really want to buy more of their jewelery, but I just can’t justify it at the moment. As a side note, I’d say the quality of their range is pretty much on par with Jeweliq, so if you want to get something beautiful for a cheaper price point, definitely check them out.

08) Liv Tyler is releasing a modern day etiquette book with her grandmother Dorothea Johnson. I pre-ordered a copy today.

09) I really want to see Gravity. I’ve heard RAVE reviews from every single person that I know that’s seen it already, so I have high hopes.

10) THE WALKING DEAD STARTS ON MONDAY. I’m so excited to have Daryl Dixon steaming up my screen again. Another of my favourites, American Horror Story, started up this week and I’m hooked already. Seeing Kathy Bates and Jessica Lange work together is going to be very exciting.

Product Review: Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty Mimosa

I love a good chubby stick. In fact, I can confidently say that Clinique’s Chubby Sticks have been my favourite lip product lately and this shade in particular is my go-to lip colour at the moment. To be honest with you guys, every time I pick it up I think…

If that isn’t enough to entice you to purchase this little beauty, read on. Clinique Chubby Sticks offer everything I could possibly want from a lip product: they give just the right amount of coverage, feel moisturizing on the lips, and they give me the ability to apply lip colour with what appears to be a giant crayon. These kinds of products are more popular now, but when they first came out on the market I had a lot of people questioning what the heck I was doing. Mighty Mimosa is my latest chubby purchase and I really love this shade. I wanted something quite neutral and slightly peachy, and this is pretty much perfect. The Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty Mimosa retails for $35 AUD and is available for purchase from Clinique online.
