Mini Typo haul

Hi everyone, hope you're doing well!

On the weekend, I went on a little shopping trip with my mum to Harbour Town {Similar to a clearance outlet}. We didn't find heaps of things whilst shopping but I decided to take a quick look in a stationary shop called Typo. I'm not even joking when I say that I love stationary.. I legitimately have WAY too many pens that I don't need but I just can't stop myself from buying more. PLUS everything in Typo has really cute patterns, designs and ideas for home decor and I can't help myself!

Firstly, I decided to get these medium Plain Jane notebooks because they are a perfect size to carry anywhere to scribble random ideas. I really liked the flamingo and blue sky ones because I thought they were the cutest notebooks out of all the ones to choose from. They are normally $4.95 each but I happened to get them while they were on sale for $1.50 each.  

 Medium Plain Jane Notebooks: Similar here.

Then they had a special offer with 5 pens for $5 so I couldn't resist getting 5 coloured pens that look like pencils but are fine tip ink pens. I tested all the pens in the store and I really liked these colours the best! And then I also bought another ink pen in black which was $2.50 and is a little thicker than the other pens. I thought it was really cute that the pens name is Brenda and it matches the pen I have at home who's name is Bruce! These types of pens are fantastic for ink sketches which is what I use them for.

 Brenda 0.5: Here
Pencil Pens: All colours here

And lastly, I found this black and beige laptop bag for $10!! It was such a bargain that I couldn't leave it behind! It's surprisingly spacious and I decided to get it for university next year. I will probably end up using it as a normal, everyday bag or if I decide to take a book somewhere.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with all the things I bought. Typo is such a great store and I love going there to look at all the cute little treasures they have.

Hope you enjoyed this mini haul!

Beauty Wish list #1

There are many cosmetic products that I wanted on my wish list but I managed to narrow it down to my top 5 beauty products that ended up overcoming them all. 
Created with Polyvore

{1} Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette: It's no secret that this is on my wish list! Everyone and everyone they know either owns one or desperately wants the Naked palette in their life. I specifically want the naked 2 palette because I feel like the colours are more natural which is the look I like best. Also, I want to see what all the hype is about as well as be able to achieve the looks that beauty gurus do on youtube because they always seem to use this palette for nearly every tutorial.

{2} Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder: I rarely use bronzer but I don't care, I just want this in my collection. The bronzer is separated into four little squares which ends up looking like a chocolate bar which I think is super cute. I have heard a lot of people rave about this bronzer and that just makes me want this in my life.

{3} Benefit They're Real! Mascara: Again, another product that literally everyone has raved about and all I have heard is positive reviews! I have quite short eyelashes and I would love to give this mascara a try to see if they live up to my expectations.

{4} Benefit Fine One One: I absolutely LOVE the watermelon and coral colours!! Apparently it's a lip colour as well as a highlighter, blush and contour which is really interesting because I love things that have more than one purpose because it makes me feel like the product is worth the money that I spent.

{5} Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion: A lot of beauty bloggers have talked about this product and I feel like I want to try this out for myself! Also, the packaging totally won me over because it looks like something to do with magic {how exciting!}.

And thats the top 5 beauty products on my wish list for now. What are your top 5 beauty products that you want in your collection? Let me know in the comments below.

Australis Haul

Hi everyone!
So, the other day I had the most random urge to visit Priceline Pharmacy to check out all their cosmetics which are currently on sale because its September in Australia which means "30 Days of Fashion and Beauty" is underway!

Im not going to lie when I said that I had no idea what I wanted to buy, I kind of just walked around and looked at everything until I saw something that caught my eye! As I walked past the Australis display I remembered that I have never actually given the Australian cosmetic brand a try and decided to look through their range.

And as if its pink and black colour scheme on the packaging hadn't won me over already, the fact that they had products that none of the other displays had, just made me want to buy everything. For example, I didn't see any types of setting sprays in other make up displays until I got to the Australis stand.

I have never used Australis before and I bought these products in the spare of the moment so I'm not 100% sure if they do their duties to the best of their ability! I only bought these products because I didn't own similar products at home.

From left to right: Eyeshadow Primer, Lip Treatment Trio,  Colour Corrector - green, Matte Me - Lipstick Mattifying Base, Make-up Finishing Spritz and Conceal Correct 4-In-1 Palette.

So these are the products I ended up getting!

{1} Eyeshadow Primer: Normally my eyeshadows don't last all day and I have been on the hunt for an eyeshadow primer and this was the first one that I saw that was in my price range. I have tried this product already and it literally just glides onto your eyelid.

{2} Lip treatment Trio: I think they had a special offer because I ended up getting this product as a freebie! It has three different sections - the green is an exfoliator, the white is a moisturiser and the pink is a gloss! I think its a good concept and it smells like lemonade which is a bonus.

{3} Colour Corrector: I got this product because its supposed to reduce the redness of blemishes and uneven skin tone. I have tried different green concealers before but they have all been a creamy texture, and I decided to give this one a go because it is a liquid concealer.

{4} Matte Me - Lipstick Mattifying Base: There have been many times where I want to wear matte lipstick and end up being disappointed because they don't end up lasting as long as I want them to. I got this so that my lipstick will last longer as well as enhance the colour.

{5} Make-up Finishing Spritz: I have always wanted a setting spray so that my make up can last longer all day and I'm glad that I found this because it is infused with aloe vera and rose water and smells absolutely amazing.

{6} 4 - In - 1 Concealer Corrector Palette: This concealer palette is compact which is really good because you can take it anywhere. It has four shades - purple to hide dark circles, green to cover up redness, and two skin tones concealers to even out skin tone.

And thats it, I hope you enjoyed my first haul!
Let me know your thoughts on Australis cosmetics.
Have a lovely day!

First post! (◕‿◕✿)

Hi everybody!

First post!! WEE!
After a good amount of time of following and supporting loads of beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogs, I have finally decided to start my own! It has been something I have always wanted to try out and is purely out of interest! This blog hopefully will share some little treasures I find while shopping {beauty, fashion, trinkets, etc.} and share the adventures I go on when I actually leave the house {lol}.

Hope you enjoy! :)

Love Mel!
