July Favourites

It's been a while since I did a favourites post and since I love reading them so much I thought it was time I made them a regular feature.

Vanessa Megan Kakadu Plum Anti-Aging serum - My dry winter skin is loving this serum. It's very light but super hydrating. My skin was really suffering before I started using this, but it is now in great condition, hydrated and soft.

Arbonne Rouge Chic lipstick and Posh Chic lipgloss - I'd never heard of Arbonne cosmetics until I was contacted by them. The Rouge Chic lipstick is a beautiful red and very long lasting. I put at breakfast, lunch, had two drinks and still have lipstick on. The gloss is a gorgeous, mlbb pink shade that I've been wearing a lot since I got it. Reviews for both products are coming up soon.

Buddha Balm Burnt Sugar Fig - I got this in one of my many Addicted 2 Lip Balm orders, primarily because the flavour sounded interesting. It tastes amazing, very sweet and fruity.

1SkinSolution Strawberry Rose Champagne tinted lip butter - This is amazing. It has the pigment of a lipstick, the hydration of a lip butter and it tastes great! I'll be reviewing all of the 1SkinSolution tinted lip butters soon.
Australis Nudist palette - Surprisingly I've never bought the Urban Decay Naked palette however this looks very similar and I got it on sale for the bargain price of $4.86.
Physicians Formula Rose Happy Booster Blush - Aside from how pretty this looks, it's a beautiful blush and smells really good.
Real Techniques Stippling brush - I'm in love with this brush. It has shorter bristles than my other stippling brushes, which makes it perfect for applying foundation. I get a flawless look when I use this.

Rimmel Recover foundation - I've had this sitting in my cupboard for ages and only started using it recently. Not sure if they still make it, I hope they do because I really like it. It is illuminating without making me look like a Cullen in the sunlight.

Benefit Sugarbomb lipgloss - As soon as I found out that these were coming out I knew I had to have one. It's just as amazing as I thought it would be. The colour is gorgeous and it is as hydrating as a lip balm.

The Vanessa Megan serum, Arbonne products, 1SkinSolution lip butter and Benefit Sugarbomb were sent to me for consideration. All other products I purchased myself.

July Empties and Tosses

Due to P50P I don't have many empties this month. I finished a whole pile of samples and I also tossed a few things out. 
 
These products are all tosses.
 
I was so disappointed with the Prevage serum. I've wanted to try it for ages, so when I received it to trial for Primped I was really excited. Unfortunately I haven't been able to use this as nothing will come out of the bottle. I've tried everything I can to get the pump to work but it won't. What a waste. 

Next is the Mirenese powder. It's okay but I find the puff really difficult to use. I ended up taking the lid off and using it as a loose powder, but then decided this was too hard so out it goes.

The Guerlain lipstick and gloss I really like, but they remind me of an ex every time I use them, so they had to go. The silver tube is Becca lip tint in Vendela. I love the lip tints but this one is too warm for me so I don't use it. I didn't see any point in having it sitting around, so out it goes. 

The pot with the black lid is a Designer Brands cream eye shadow. This creases like crazy within half an hour of me putting it on. 

The pencil is a taupe Innoxa eye shadow that I loved. It's a gorgeous colour, however I've had this for at least seven years so decided it was high time I got rid of it.

The two Prada balms are old and I just don't use them. I have heaps of them floating around and they are the perfect size to get stuck in bub's throat so I can't afford to have them in the house. 

As you can see here, I also finished a pile of samples that I can't be bothered listing. If there is anything you'd like to know about let me know.

FFS Friday

Friday is here! We've had a wonderful week so I don't have a lot to complain about. I got great news from work on Monday, we found out Wednesday we are getting great tax returns and this news has made it a great week for us. 

In a sure sign that I'm rapidly approaching old age, I have had a hankering for kitchen appliances lately. FFS.

I really want a Thermomix, however as I don't see us having $2000 to spend on a kitchen appliance anytime soon, I decided to make do with the poor man's Thermomix (PMT) on sale at Target. FFS.

I went in there on the first day of the sale and couldn't find it anywhere. FFS.

As baby native was getting restless and trying to kick his way out of the pram, I had to leave without asking about the PMT. FFS.

I went to Targets online store to find the PMTs were all sold out. FFS.

Undeterred, I rang Target's customer service line, but they work on Eastern Standard Time so weren't available. FFS.

Next I rang Target Innaloo. The rude lady who answered the phone told me that they had two left, they wouldn't hold one and I couldn't layby it over the phone. Great. FFS.

I called the Whitfords store and spoke to Graeme who was lovely. He told me they had one left and where it was. He also told me that they were getting fifteen more PMTs in so if I went to the store and the last one had been sold I just needed to go to the layby section and they would hold one for me. Not FFS.

On a whim I decided to go into Innaloo Target the next day. You'll never guess what I saw as I walked in the door. Three PMTs! FFS.

So the very rude lady (who didn't give her name when she answered the phone), had lied to me! FFS.

Once we've got our tax refunds I will be the proud owner of a PMT and will have no time to blog as I'll be busily whipping up amazing culinary creations. Or not. FFS.

It's a very sad fact that I am so excited about my new PMT I have a photo of it on the dinner table and I look at it every time I walk past. FFS.

Clearly it's time I got a life. FFS.

Saturday morning bub woke up screaming for Daddy at 4am. FFS.

I went in to him but he was determined to have Daddy. FFS.

Knowing that if I took him into our bedroom he'd think it was play time, I stayed in his bedroom and waited for hubby to come in and settle him. Hubby didn't bother coming in. FFS.

It took me an hour to get bub to sleep. FFS.

When I got back into bed hubby and I had the following conversation:
Hubby:What on earth was that about?
Me: How the f@#k would I know. He wanted you.
Hubby:You should have bought him in.
Me:You should have come in, I know you heard him.
Hubby gets up for work with a big sigh. He comes back in later acting all hurt because I swore at him. FFS.

Tuesday, my least favourite day of the week. It started at 5am. FFS.

Hubby got home at 7.30pm. FFS.

I'd just walked out of bubs room after spending 45 minutes trying to get him to sleep. FFS.

He commented on how untidy the house was. I gave him a death stare. FFS.

He then tells me that he'd split his hand open and hurt his ankle at training. FFS.

A little later, whilst I was getting my tax paperwork ready, cooking his tea and trying to tidy up, he asked me why I was in a bad mood. FFS.

I gave him the death stare. FFS.

Will he never learn? FFS.

I then nicely explained to him that I've had a 14 hour day with bub and I'm tired. FFS.

A little while later he asked me where his work socks are. FFS.

After a long discussion with me telling him I have no idea where they are and suggesting he's misplaced them, he found them on the clothes airer in the front lounge room. FFS.

He tells me he's found them and gives me an accusing look. I gave him the death stare. FFS.

Excuse me for forgetting that I had washing on the clothes airer, clearly I should know where his socks are at any given time. FFS.

Speaking of tax, our accountant decided to come over to do our tax at 4pm on Wednesday. FFS.

I'm not sure how he thought I could sit down to have my tax done with bub there. FFS.

Thankfully he was an hour late, so hubby was home. Not FFS.

The accountant (a friend of ours) was staying for tea. I got it all organised, turned on the oven then got distracted by bub so went outside to let him run around. I came back inside at 5pm to realise that I hadn't put the roast on. FFS.

Tea wasn't ready till 7pm. FFS.

Hubby started working for a different company last week. He got his first pay this week and it was less than we were expecting. FFS.

They didn't pay him for Monday and as it's only 1 days pay they won't pay him until next week. FFS.

The PILs are going to be visiting on Sunday. FFS.

Last time they were here MIL bought a bowl for bub so that he can "have his own bowl". FFS.

As if he doesn't have enough of "his own bowls" already. FFS.

It's a glass bowl. FFS.

Does she really think it's a good idea to give a glass bowl to a 16 month old? FFS.

My Favourite Concealers

Concealer is one of the products that I use every day (thanks to my dark circles). I've tried so many different ones on the search for something that hides my circles without sinking into my fine lines. Here are my favourites:

Benefit Erase Paste - I bought this after I saw on Jessica's blog that she finished a whole pot. I was amazed that someone could finish a concealer so I asked her about it and she told me it was her favourite concealer. Naturally I had to buy it. Unsurprisingly, Jessica was right. This is a great under eye concealer. It comes with a little spatula so that I don't have to use my fingers to get the product out and instantly brightens my dark circles. I get about eight hours wear before it starts to crease a little, however the creasing is minimal.

Bobbi Brown Corrector - This is a little piece of magic and something I'll never be without again. I discovered it when my friend LaLa was getting her make-up done at Bobbi Brown. The M/A used Corrector on her and I was amazed to see her dark circles disappear completely. I knew straight away that I needed it (so I bought it!) Since then I haven't stopped raving about how amazing this is. It is meant to be used under concealer but I find that I don't usually need to put concealer over the top unless my circles are really bad. Two layers completely cover my dark circles and there is no creasing! It lasts all day and I don't even need to set it with powder, however if I'm going to have a long day I do set it with a light dusting of powder. 

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit - When my dark circles are really bad I'll use this over the top of my Corrector. It comes in a dual layered pot that has concealer in the top and setting powder in the bottom, a genius idea! As with the Corrector, this doesn't sink into my fine lines and effectively hides dark circles. It is also great for hiding dark spots and blemishes. This isn't on their website at the moment, so I hope they still make it.

Diorskin Nude - This is the first concealer I found that didn't sink into my fine lines. I was so excited to finally discover a product that didn't make me look 90 when I used it. It's had a packaging and name change but is still the same product. Diorskin Nude covers my dark circles with one layer, lasts all day and doesn't sink into my fine lines, it's everything that I want in a concealer.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind - This is new to my concealer collection. It comes in a nifty little tube with a sponge applicator on the end which makes it super easy to apply. The coverage is great, however I do get some creasing after about six hours. I use this when I'm in a rush and don't have time to fiddle around getting my concealer application right.


Models Prefer Anti-Wrinkle -  This is a holy grail for me. It effectively covers my dark circles and lasts all day without creasing. I love the brush applicator and the fact that it's easy to get the right amount of concealer out without any wastage. Another big plus is the price, it only costs $9.59 You can read my full review here.

Nvey Eco Erase - The texture of this is unique, it's unlike anything I've used before. When I first looked at it I thought it was a powder as it's very firm, however when I used it I realised that it's a cream. I was worried that it would sink into my fine lines as it is so firm, but it doesn't. I find the best way to use this is to warm it on my finger before applying it. I tried using a brush to apply it but that didn't work very well as the product really does need to be warmed up prior to application.  Erase is budge proof. Once it's on it stays on without fading or creasing. This is the concealer I use when I know I've got a long day ahead of me.




I know a lot of people love the Laura Mercier concealer and say that it is very similar to the Bobbi Brown concealer but I disagree. I have the LM concealer and don't find it very effective. It is difficult to blend and sinks straight into my fine lines. 

And ones that I want to try next:
Clinique Even Better - This is their newest concealer and it sounds great. It contains vitamin c to help with fine lines and is specifically designed for coverage of dark circles and pigmentation.

Jane Iredale Circle Delete - The name makes me think I need this. 


Savoir Faire Concealer Pack - This is similar to the Bobbi Brown one in that it has a concealer and powder, however the difference is that it has two shades of concealer. I received the medium shade in a beauty sample box but it was way too dark for me. I'd love to try the light version, cause it felt like a lovely product.

The Maybelline and Nvey Eco concealers were sent to me for consideration. All other products I purchased myself.

P50P is over!

Yay! P50P is completed and I didn't cave! I'm so pleased with myself!
The last few products I finished were:
Angel Celestial Hair Mist
The Jojoba Company Cucumber + Guava Firming Eye Balm
My Lip Stuff Cocarmel Kick Lip Balm
John Plunkett Instant Wrinkle Filler
A'kin Vital Hydration Gel Creme
Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup
 
Doing P50P has taught me a lot about when and why I shop. I shop to cheer myself up and I impulse buy when I see something new. For me my purchases are more about having the latest thing rather than needing something. Not buying things has been easier than I thought it would be and finishing 50 products has also been easier than I expected.

From here on I'm going to do five out one in. For every five products I finish I'll allow myself to buy one new product.

Karen and I have also set ourselves a challenge. We are going to try to hit pan on a palette. This will be a huge challenge for me as my palettes are very neglected. I've never hit pan on a palette so it will be interesting to see how long it takes me. I've set myself another challenge too and that is to finish a lipstick. It's been ages since I finished a lipstick and considering how many I own, I really need to use some of them up!

You may be surprised to know that I didn't have a celebratory haul. I did consider it, however I decided that would defeat the whole purpose of doing P50P. There are a few products that I have my eye on and I may buy them when we get our tax back but I won't be having any huge hauls.

I'm considering doing P100P next, not sure if I'm strong enough for that though!

FFS Friday

Hello Friday!

As I mentioned last week, bub has been sick. FFS.

He won't sleep in our bed anymore, he thinks it's playtime when he comes into our room. FFS.

Whilst he was sick hubby kept on bringing him into our bed. FFS.

This meant that none of us got any sleep. FFS.

Everytime we have a bad night with bub hubby has to make some comment about it being lucky that we only have one child. FFS.

He acts like he doesn't want another baby, even though he's the one who keeps on telling people that we're trying and we'd love to have another baby. FFS.

Saturday started at 5am and was one of those days where I wished the ground would open up and swallow my husband. FFS.

Despite me explaining to him that Mummy is much more fun when she isn't woken up in the middle of the night or early in the morning, Monday bub woke up at 2.30am, 3.30am and then decided to start his day at 4.30am. FFS.

Tuesday he woke up at 4am, 5am and 6am. FFS.

Wednesday he woke up at 5.30am, I got him back to sleep then he woke up again at 6am. FFS.

Thursday he woke up at 5am and it took me an hour and a half to get him back to sleep. FFS.

My hayfever has been really bad the past few weeks. FFS.

Tuesday I was talking to my favourite lady at The Body Shop when a torrent of snot started streaming out of my nose. FFS.

If you think I'm exaggerating, I'm not. It was like someone turned a tap on. The snot came out so fast that I didn't even have time to get a tissue. FFS.

I did however manage to catch the stream of snot in my hand. FFS.

To my mortification, the TBS lady saw the whole incident. FFS.

You'd think bub would have distracted her so that I could clean up my snot in privacy, but no, he was too busy picking snot out of his nose. FFS.

Prior to having bub things like this never happened, so I can only conclude it is all bub's fault that I no longer have any dignity. FFS.

For some reason that I don't understand, I am unable to comment on some blogger blogs. I type in the comment, press enter and it disappears. FFS.

This usually happens when I've thought up a particularly witty comment. FFS.

I bought bub a Nuby Snack Keeper, brilliant idea. It is supposed to mean that his snacks don't end up all over the floor. Naturally, bub decided the best way to use the Snack Keeper is to shake it until all the food comes out and then eat it off the floor. FFS.

Things I learned from my toddler this week:
Water is not for drinking, it is for tipping on the floor so that you can play in the puddles.
Dribbling water out of your mouth is lots of fun and gets a great reaction from strangers. 
It's much more fun to play with food than it is to eat it.
Anything that can fit should be put into the toilet when Mum isn't looking.
If you can't get it into the toilet without Mum catching you, put it in the washing machine.
When a good song comes on, stop whatever you are doing and start dancing.
If you want to play with something on the table and Mum won't let you, put one of your toys up there and pretend you want it back.
Tables are great to dance on.
Flushing the toilet is a lot of fun.
The best way to flush the toilet is to stand on Mums knee whilst she is using the toilet, lean over her shoulder and press the button before she can stand up.

Winter Skin Saviours

The freezing cold weather we've been having in Perth lately has sucked all the moisture out of my skin. Between hot showers, air conditioning and drinking less water, my skin is drier than the Sahara desert. That got me thinking about the products that I rely on to sort out my parched winter skin.

Weleda Skin Food - I've been using this for years. It's very hydrating without being greasy and can be used on the face and body. Skin Food costs $22.90.

MU London Moisturiser - This range of moisturisers are unique because they don't contain water. It makes them quite firm, but once they've been warmed up a little goes a long way and they are super hydrating. My favourite is the rose scent. As with Weleda Skin Food, this can be used on the face and body.

Lanolips Golden Ointment - When my skin is super dry Golden Ointment is my saviour. It's great for dry hands, cracked heels and cuticles. I also like to use it when I have eczema as it is super moisturising. A 50g tube costs $28.95.

Haus of Gloi Pumpkin Butter - Sarah introduced me to the wonder that is Haus of Gloi and I haven't looked back. Their Pumpkin Butters are now an essential part of my skin care routine. They come in a range of beautiful scents, sink in quickly and keep my skin feeling soft and smooth.

Avene Thermal Face Spray or Evian Face Spray - A trick I learned years ago is to use facial spray and then apply moisturiser when my skin is still wet. It helps to lock in the moisture and makes a surprising difference to the way my skin feels. 

Another great trick I've learned is to use a body oil in the shower, pat dry and then apply body lotion over the top. It is a great way to get extra moisturisation without having the greasy feeling you sometimes get from using a body oil.

FFS Friday

As soon as I'd finished typing up last weeks Friday post I realised I'd missed things out. FFS.

I now can't remember what any of those things were. FFS.

This week I'm very slow off the mark. I'm writing this on Thursday, usually by Thursday I have the post nearly finished. FFS. 

That means I've probably forgotten most of my FFS worthy events. FFS.

I've been on an endless clothing hunt for winter clothes for bub. FFS.

Monday I found some trackie pants in his size. Not FFS.

I got them home and found that they'd been on the wrong hanger and were too small. FFS.

So I had to take them back and try to find another pair. FFS.

Bizarrely, now that bub has all the winter clothes he needs, there are heaps of size 1 boys winter clothes around. FFS.

And they're all on sale. FFS.
Monday night bub was awake from 12 am to 4am. Fun. FFS.

Like last week, bub has been throwing tantrums all day, every day. FFS.

Sometimes I don't even know why he's throwing a tantrum. FFS.

Tuesday I couldn't cope with it so spent 2 hours driving around aimlessly just to keep him quiet. FFS. 

Tuesday night, for the first time in his life, bub slept through the night. Not FFS.

Hubby woke me up at 5am. FFS.

And I immediately thought bub was dead. FFS.

So hubby stood at his door to make sure he could hear him breathing, which he could. Not FFS.

By this time I was wide awake and couldn't get back to sleep. FFS.
Bub woke up at 5.45am. FFS.

Wednesday night I was hoping for a repeat performance, however bub got croup so woke up at 3am, 4am and 5am. FFS.

I rang four Drs surgerys and couldn't get him an appointment this week, even after telling them that my 16 month old son has croup. FFS.

Apparently the Drs are all on holidays this week. FFS.

They all told me to take bub to the hospital. FFS.

Silly me thought you only took your child to the emergency department in the event of an emergency. FFS.

I bought bub some crayons to use in the shower. He's more interested in eating them. FFS.

Thursday Mum came up and infested my house with toilet germs! FFS.

She took the book I'm currently reading into the toilet. FFS.

The worst bit is that it's a library book so I can't throw it out. FFS.

The book is currently sitting near my computer, so I'm waiting for it to stop working once the toilet germs take hold. FFS.

If you don't hear from me again you'll know why. FFS.

The job that hubby is currently doing has finished so he's changing companies. Despite the current job ending, his company have decided that he (and the other staff) quit. FFS.

This means that they save themselves having to pay them all termination payments. FFS.

I'm not sure how the came to this decision when they told the staff that the job was finished and they won't have any work for them after Friday. Bastards. FFS.

They've also been actively trying to find work with other companies for all the staff. FFS.

Clearly they're just bastards. FFS.

And that's all I can remember wanting to whinge about this week.
Have a great weekend!!!!!!

Dear Chai

My beautiful son. Today you are sixteen months old. I say this every month and I'll keep on saying it, you are a delightful, amazing child. You have a very strong personality and don't have any trouble letting us know what you want. You express yourself very easily (Dad says you get that from me). You are a very friendly child, you love people and other children. When you see other children you get really excited and run up to them to say hello. You also love animals, especially dogs, you think it's really funny when they lick you.

You have tantrum throwing down to a fine art and chuck tantrums every day. Fun. Thankfully you are usually easily distracted although there are times when no matter what I do you can't be dissuaded.

You love running around outside, playing in puddles, throwing rocks and exploring. If you had your way you'd play on the road all the time, however to your great disgust I won't let you. You also love stairs. You'll happily climb up and down stairs for half an hour or more.

You are trying to talk more and more, the first word you tried to copy was Alphabet. You managed to say Alpha. This week you are trying to say Blue, which comes out Brrrrrrr.


Your favourite book and song is Wheels on the Bus, you can do all the actions. We sing Wheels on the Bus at least twenty times a day. Your favourite part is the horn going Beep Beep Beep.When we go to Rhyme Time (which you love) you get very annoyed that they only sing Wheels on the Bus once.

You pick up things so quickly, out of the blue you'll copy something that you saw us do days earlier. You can do the motions to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, you just started doing it one day.

When you hurt yourself you like us to kiss you better and if we don't see you hurting yourself you will show us the sore bit and demonstrate how you hurt yourself. 

Elmo is your favourite character, you have lots of Elmo toys and scream with excitement whenever you see him. You also like Thomas the Tank engine, but not as much as you like Elmo.

You love to sing and dance and are very cute. Dancing is either running on the spot or bending your knees and bouncing up and down. Whenever you hear music you like you'll stop what you're doing and start dancing. You sing to Hokey Pokey and into Elmo's microphone. You will also sing if we ask you too.

This month you've learned how to blow kisses, give kisses, wink and blow your nose. 

Teeth wise this has been a big month, you got four molars through. They didn't upset your sleeping too much, only for a night or two. You ask for the bonjella and point at your mouth when your gums are sore and in the last week you've been sucking your thumb or finger. They are nearly fully through now, it's just the one on the bottom left that hasn't quite come up.

Finally you are sleeping better. We resettle you once or twice a night but it only takes a minute or two. It's such a relief to be finally getting some sleep!

For the last three weeks you've only had one breastfeed a day, which is at bedtime. I decided to stop feeding you in the morning unless you asked for it and you've only asked for it twice. This is how I wanted to wean, I wanted you to decide when you were ready to reduce feeds and that's exactly what you've done.  


My beautiful boy, I am so glad that you came into my life.

FFS Friday

Well this week has gone by faster than an elephant chasing a jelly bean and once again it's Friday.
Last Friday bub and I were at the post office. To bub's disgust I was holding him when he wanted to get down and wreak toddler havoc upon the unsuspecting post office. FFS.

There was only one person in front of me so I was confident that we'd be out of there pretty quickly. FFS.

Two staff members were working, one was with a customer (who she was still with when I left) and the other one was playing with the greeting cards. FFS.

Despite the line being out the door, she saw fit to keep on fiddling with the greeting cards. FFS.

Fifteen minutes later she finally decided she'd finished so started dealing with the queue of customers. FFS.

You'd think that the huge queue of customers, phone ringing non stop and a screaming toddler would have prompted her to start dealing with the customers sooner, but it didn't. FFS.

Great work Krystal at Scarborough post office. FFS.

I've had a major case of the grumps this week. FFS.

Realising this, bub has decided to test my resolve to never take my moods out on him. FFS.

Nice try sunshine, but I am tougher than that, I will stick to my resolve. FFS.

Saturday I was in such an intolerant mood that I had to wander around the shopping centre for a few hours as I couldn't cope with bubs tantrums. FFS.

Upon realising how grumpy I was both hubby and Mum immediately decided I must be pregnant. FFS.

I politely informed them both that if I am this grumpy so early in pregnancy it doesn't bode well for the rest of the pregnancy. FFS.

Ten minutes after me telling him I'm grumpy, Hubby informs me that I am grumpy and it's not very nice. FFS.

That's not a very intelligent thing to say to a potentially pregnant, grumpy wife. FFS.

I'm not pregnant. FFS.

My Mummy ears are back again. FFS.

Saturday I found an empty jar of coffee in the pantry. FFS.

MIL had used the last of the coffee and instead of telling me, she just put the empty jar back into the pantry. As you do. FFS.

Thankfully the instant coffee is only for visitors and as her and FIL are the only visitors who drink coffee, she's the only person who will be inconvenienced by the lack of coffee. Not FFS.

Watch out for me on the news next week. You'll know it's me when you see a headline that goes something like "Wife attacks husband in violent rage then calmly finishes washing the dishes. Toddler sleeps through entire incident" FFS.

Not a day goes past when hubby doesn't make a comment about me being noisy. FFS.

He usually makes this comment when I'm doing the dishes. FFS.

Here's a thought hubby: If I'm sofa king noisy, how about you do the dishes instead! No? That's what I thought, so STFU. FFS.

Despite me being so noisy, hubby is the only one who has been noisy enough to wake bub up. FFS.


To end things on a high note, I have a new favourite saying thanks to Dr Bron. Get your balls out of your mum's handbag and man up.

Project 50 Pan Update

Slowly but surely I am getting through my products. Surprisingly it hasn't taken me as long as I thought it would. It's amazing how quickly I use things up when I use them exclusively. It's also quite nice having a simple skin and beauty care routine. Instead of using lots of different products I'm using the same few products until they are gone and it makes life so much easier.
Clarins Pure Melt Cleansing Gel
Philosophy Flirty Girl Shower Gel
Original and Mineral Hydrate and Conquer Conditioner
Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment
Bloom Rhubarb Lip Stain
Mi Skin Revitalising Gel Cleanser
Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo
Crazy Rumors Banana Split Lip Balm
CO Bigelow Ultra Mentha Lip Shine
Haus of Gloi Parkin Pumpkin Butter
Canterbury Rose Soothing Cream Bath

I've now finished 43 products. To my dismay, I've learned that Karen has already finished P50P! I'm so jealous!
