Go Matte Or Go Home!

Before I gave birth, I envisaged Maternity Leave to be a time where I would successfully juggle a newborn baby with a lot of free time to do whatever I wanted.  I imagined me being one of those Mums who would get up bright and early, do some yoga, make some fabulous smoothie concoction in a hipster Mason jar (and Instagram it!) and drink it with a stripy straw, followed by Baby Time and when she napped, I would be able to carry on my day and do plenty of blogging and make plenty of clean-eating meals, blah blah blah.  It all seemed so easy…

Reality check – it has been the total opposite!!!  I just have NO free time!!!  Motherhood is hard work and I’m not afraid to say that some days are a struggle because it is so intense and full-on.  It is, by far, the most difficult thing I have ever encountered.  But at the same time, I love it soooo much and I feel immensely blessed.

Anyway, I am rattling on (not an easy feat typing with one hand as the other hand/arm is cuddling the baby) when I am supposed to be introducing you to the Matte beauty stash I have been loving lately…  Yes, I still have a bit of time for makeup.  I refuse to be a frumpy mummy so I am happy being a semi-yummy mummy hehe…

14 Beauty Products To Help You Rock Radiant Orchid

radiant orchid beauty products

Radiant Orchid is the Pantone Colour of 2014 – I love it!  It’s bright, happy and eye-catching.  Not only can you wear this purple hue as clothing, shoes and accessories, you can add pops of colour in your beauty routine too.  However, you probably should not wear head to toe in Radiant Orchid – unless you want to look like Violet Beauregarde from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 😛  Each to their own!

To get the deets on 14 beauty products which will help you rock Radiant Orchid, read all about it on my guest post at Breakfast With Audrey.

6 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas For Beauty Lovers

Beyonce & Katy Perry perfumes

1.  Perfume & Album Combo!

Last Friday, everyone was buzzing over Beyonce’s surprise self-entitled album complete with some fierce videos.  Great gift to give the perfume and album combo together.  You might not be able to sing like Queen B but at least you can smell like her 😛

Of course, there are plenty of singing celebrity perfumes out there which include Katy Perry Killer Queen – spray and sing “You’re gonna hear me ROARRRR!” at the same time, Lady Gaga (although her latest album was a flop IMHO) and if you’re into teeny boppers – 1D and Bieber…

My Makeup Looks For A Wedding & My Pink Baby Shower (which were both on the same day!)

makeup products, makeup porn, lots of makeup, beauty products

A couple of weeks ago, I was in a semi-state of panic as I had a wedding to attend at 11am in the suburbs followed by my baby shower high tea at 2pm in the city.  In my heavily pregnant state of 34 weeks, I could barely find anything to wear for the 2 events – and no, I was not prepared to wear the same dress to both events because it was a HOT day and I didn’t want to be Sweaty Betty at my baby shower where I would be hugging my girlfriends.  Anyway, I tried on all my dresses and settled for a green bubble dress for the wedding and a pink tight-fitting dress for the pink-themed baby shower (which you have already seen me wear here).  And my next dilemma was to make sure my make-up would look good but different for both events so here’s what I came up with using the products above…
