Christmas Wishlist

Dear Santa, I've been a good girl, but I can turn on the bad if you like... *wink*! Here's my xmas wishlist...

Philosophy Travel Agent set, $69.00 AUD. Great to take on a weekend away! Nars Limited Edition I Want You gloss set, $110 AUD. For tons of pretty pouts.

Frederic Fekkai Travel Faves Gloss, $68.00 AUD. Another weekend getaway must have.

Nars Love Me set, $98.00 AUD. It contains the popular Orgasm and Albatross, as well as the Orgasm lip gloss. I need it... right now!

Black Loius Vuitton Lunar GM bag. It's not "show-offy" and is similar to my everyday bag, so I would use it a lot! Not sure how much it is, though. A lot, I expect.

Limited Edition Pink GHD set. About $300ish AUD. Yes, I still want this even though I already have a limited edition purple set that came with a hairdryer. I want this because it's PINK!

My Eyebrow Musing

Do my eyebrows look a little... scraggly to you? I dunno. I've never really cared much about my eyebrows before. But now when I look at it my mind starts ticking over. Is it too bushy? Is the shape a good shape? Does it look normal? Are they starting to thin?! In all honesty, I don't even know what makes a good eyebrow!

I know that too thin is out, because it makes you look old. And I know that if they're light, they're not gonna look very good on you, especially if you have dark hair. So, how are my eyebrows? Should I shape them differently? When I wear make up, should I fill in my brows so there aren't empty patches? Should I brush them and apply gel to keep them in shape? Maybe it's time to consult the beauty bible! Or, YouTube. Hehe!

Currently all I do is pluck the stray hairs that grow randomly on my lids. When I was very young, ten or eleven, my sister plucked my eyebrows for me and ever since then, I've just kept the shape. I don't get much hair growing back, so I rarely have to pluck. I think my sister did a pretty good job, because no one's told me how awful my eyebrows look... or maybe they've just never mentioned it? Hmm! Let me know what you think.

Jericho Purifying Mud Mask & Twitter

I'm going to start posting my outfit of the day on twitter, so if you're not already, start following me! I recently got an iPhone so it's so easy to upload photos to twitter. I also tweet pretty regularly. Follow me here:

Now onto the review... I've had this mask since March 2008 but I stopped using it after I gave birth in June. I thought it'd have expired by now, but the expiration date says May 2010, so I've started using it agian. It is the best mud mask I have ever used, but it's pretty damn pricey. I think they were selling this for $100 AUD, which is A LOT for a mask, but I got it at a discounted price because I managed to talk the guy down.

I bought it from a Jericho stall. They don't have stores. I was hesitant to buy it but I'm glad I did. This product uses all natural ingredients, like avacado oil and honey, and dead sea mud. I got the normal to dry skin formula, as at the time I had dry skin. It's very thick and feels a little grainy when you apply it. If you apply it in a thin layer it dries pretty quickly. You leave it on for ten to fifteen minutes, then you wash it off with warm water. It washes away easily and omg, my skin is so smooth afterwards. Even if I don't moisturise straight away, my skin doesn't feel dry at all. Usually, mud masks are a little drying but this one leaves my skin soft and plump. Love it!

Colour Tag: Green

I've been tagged by Anne to do this fun colour tag. What you have to do is find 7 items of the colour they pick. Anne choose green, so here are my 7 green items!

My green hand towel that I used to dry my make up brushes on. It's a soft, pale green so you can't really tell, but I assure you it's green!

Tea tree oil blotting paper by The Body Shop. My saviour when I'm out and a little slicked up.

A green hair brush and comb set I've had since my first son was born... over 7 years ago! And I still use it to brush his hair, and even my other son's hair!

A pretty bikini top that I bought a few years ago... I don't wear this anymore because I lost the bottoms but I still keep it in storage. Just in case I want to mix and match.

My green eyeshadow palette by YSL.

Green make up bags I got free with a purchase from Estee Lauder. It had sample size stuff in there.

Kids nightlight we got in a set of 2. The other one is blue. They were so expensive! And we don't even use them anymore...

So those are my green items. I thought it'd be hard finding green stuff in the house but it managed to find them all in the space of 5 minutes. I think I'm meant to tag others, but I've seen this tag floating around and it seems everyone's done it! So I'm not tagging anyone. But if you want to do it, I tag you! And the colour I pick is... PINK! My fav colour!

OPI On The Same Paige

This is from the OPI BrightPair collection, and to be honest, I'm just not loving it. It says that it's an orange-red, but to me it just looks orange. Only in certain lighting does it appear the slightest bit red. I don't really wear bright nail polish so this orange colour is very... well, colourful for me, but it's good for summer. Adds a pop of colour to your outfit!

This is a good colour for toes. I wouldn't recommend it for your nails, unless you specifically need orange. Great to wear with sandals. Yes, I know. I have ugly toes. And yes, I know. I have hairs on my toes. So gross. Am I the only girl that plucks hairs from her toes? I don't even think I should be posting this! LOL. Oh well.

Here's the look I'm wearing today: an absolute minimum with just a little bit of tightlining and mascara (Estee Lauder MagnaScopic). No foundation or powder of any sort (as you can tell with all the spots!), just moisturiser. It's such a hot day today, I didn't want to wear any make up!

As for my outfit, it's also simple and minimal with just shorts from Supre (non skanky, of course) and a loose fitting tee from Lolita. Oh, and the bow hairband from Aldo Accessories. Nice and mumsy. No skanks here today... LOL!

Today we're just going to do the family thing, maybe take Dante to a park or the beach, and spend some time at the shopping center (for the air conditioning!) My other son is at home with his nanna and grandpa. He loves them!
