New Beginnings

Hi everyone,

There is no easy way to write this but I am saying goodbye to this beauty blog.  At least for now.

You’ve probably been expecting this announcement considering the fact that I have only updated this blog only once this year!!!

The reason is this…

pixiwoo sisters at real techniques event

In case you don’t follow me on social media, we are expecting our second bubba next month #NOTafoodbaby!!  WE ARE SO EXCITED!

{ FYI, when I say “we”, I mean the husband and I.  The ladies above are the Pixiwoo sisters and we met at a Real Techniques media event. }

I still love all things beauty and I still love blogging but every time I tried to get back into beauty blogging, something like this would happen…

Bioderma sensibio


Instead, I’ve decided to change direction from beauty blogging to full-on lifestyle blogging { or what I like to call, a MISH-MASH BLOG }.

Consider it a “rebrand”…

Or not…  Because I haven’t actually looked at the logistics of merging my 2 blogs together…  It seems like a LOT of work and I cannae be arsed!

Thank you so much if you’ve been reading my beauty blog from the beginning!!!  { Or if you’ve been reading from the VERY VERY beginning when I was a personal blogger on Xanga circa 2004! } I hope you continue reading my random ramblings on my ONE BLOG TO RULE THEM ALL!

Anyway, I’m just gonna leave this blog as is, for now…

I may or may not return to full-time beauty blogging later…  Or I may delete all the blog posts one day { like I did with my other beauty blog Lip Stalker – it’s GONE from cyberspace but the Youtube videos are still up!!! }

If you already follow me on Bloglovin’, I’ve already transferred the blog feed 🙂  Otherwise, here’s the link to Ling Out Loud, my beauty and lifestyle blog here.

And all the other rebranded social media networking sites @LingOutLoud – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest.

5 Antipodes Skincare Products You Should Try

3 things…

Firstly, I have totally neglected this blog but if you’re still hanging around, thank you so much!

Secondly, I won’t bore you with my excuses for being MIA in beauty blogging but just in case you’re wondering (yes, Mum, I’m talking about YOU!), no I am not pregnant again.

And thirdly, I received a lovely Antipodes skincare package at the start of LAST year.  Took photos of it.  Tried all the products.  But forgot to blog about it…

…until now!

Antipodes skincare review

If you haven’t heard of Antipodes before, you clearly don’t browse the skincare aisles like I do in Priceline!  The skincare brand hails from New Zealand and I’m so glad I was introduced to their products.

ZOMG!!  It’s definitely beginning to look a LOT like Christmas since there are only 2 more weeks to go!  Eeeps!!!

Review & Swatches : Face Of Australia Perfect Nude Palette in Nude

Face Of Australia Perfect Nude Palette in Nude

Hello pretty!!!  *heart eyes*

Remember I told you about the Priceline makeup sale in a previous post?

Well, here’s one of the many purchases I hauled…

This beauty is the new limited edition Face Of Australia Perfect Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Nude.

{ There’s also another one called Naked which I hope I can get my paws on soon!! }

I found me a good bargain but even without the 40% off, it’s only $18.95!!!  I know right?!  And it’s in stock online.  Just FYI!


10 Makeup Products You Should Buy In Priceline

This one’s to all my Aussie beauty-lovin’ readers…

So, call me an enabler, but if you haven’t heard already, Priceline are doing their infamous 40% off all cosmetics on Wednesday 18th to Thursday 19th November.


If you have time, head to your nearest Priceline.  Unfortunately, if you are time poor, online shopping is the way to go…but be prepared if the website is a bit sluggish and also, many popular items will be out of stock which is a PITA { pain in the arse! }.

Anyway, to help a sister out { that’s YOU }, I have picked 10 makeup products that you should SERIOUSLY consider buying in Priceline.

In no particular order…

Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow

Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow* – ridiculously cheap with a normal RRP of $6.95 so with 40% off, that will be dirt cheap so BUY-ALL-THE-COLOURS-NOW!


Project 100 Pan // Empties 21-25


Firstly, I want to acknowledge all the bad news from last week – Paris, Beirut, etc.  Like every normal person, I am saddened.  Saddened by what this world is coming to.  My thoughts are all over the place and really, this isn’t the right place to talk about it.

I don’t just #prayforparis but I #prayforpeace in the world.

Also, I feel really weird blogging about beauty products when the world around me is going through all this.

But somehow, I find blogging comforting and familiar…  Does that make sense?

Anyway, here’s my next instalment of my Project 100 Pan with empties 21-25.
