Im not over exaggerating when I say you need this palette now! And yes I have dedicated a whole blog post to this palette! This is the 'In Bloom' Eye shadow Palette from Tarte Cosmetics.
You have no idea how many times I have added this to my cart and then backed out and recently I got to use my friends one and that sealed the deal and I knew I needed to add this to my kit. I was SO lucky to actually win this on a giveaway through Instagram. Im not one to go crazy entering all the giveaways but I knew how much I wanted this palette so thought id give entering a go! I nearly cried when I found out I won! Why do I love this palette so much? Read on.

ITS LANDED. Finally Mecca Maxima has opened its doors on the North Shore in Albany Westfield. Its second store in Auckland and the biggest. The new store is a next generation Mecca Maxima and I am SO excited to have one closer to home and easier to access! I went along on opening day and had the best time. Can you believe it I have NEVER been to a Mecca Maxima store, I never bothered heading into Queen Street and battling with Auckland city so I have been a serial online shopper instead. You can only imagine my excitement when I finally set foot in it!

Im a skin gal and I always take a lot of time and effort when doing someones makeup on their skin. I know some woman are afraid of highlight, or rather don't no how to apply it which I can totally understand. I have been lucky enough to get my hands on one of these and I tried it for the first time with amazing results.
A NEW YEAR
Another year passed and another year full of memories to add to my career. I always say this, but I count myself so lucky to do what I do and work with such lovely down to earth people each day. Ive added some beautiful weddings to my portfolio this year, met some amazing new clients and like minded artists along the way too.
Theres no denying Im a slight beauty junkie. 10 years in the industry will do that to you. Anything beauty related gets me excited but what excites me more is Christmas and all the beautiful limited edition sets and products that launch. I couldn't help but collate my favorites below along with some other products on my wishlist this year.
This year my oldest daughter suffered from asthma. This is something my family has never had trouble with so It was a learning curve for myself and her. We suffered from it most over the cooler months so I introduced a few different things into our lifestyle including this Protect. A. Bed Tencel Mattress Protector. Her Asthma was worse at night so I decided that it may be something to do with dust mites around us, the protein in dust mites can trigger asthma and they float all around us ready to be inhaled!
Brows. We all long for that perfect shape, texture, arch, volume, you name it. Brows are in. They are one of the most important features on our face framing the rest of our features and helping to create a more polished look. I dont no about you but I have spent years working on my brows. Ive tried it all. Waxing, plucking, threading, revitabrow, all the brow growth serums out there to help grow my very sparse and fair brow hairs. With no luck I finally bit the bullet and made an appointment at Lash Noir Ink - which I had to wait 9 months for... and heres my results.
There's something about being apart of Indian weddings that really make me excited. I've learnt SO much about the culture over the last 10 years and have been really lucky to do hair and makeup for several Indian weddings ranging from just one day of events to 5 days of events. Its an exhausting time for all involved, many early starts and long days but reflecting on these images and the memories its all worth it right? I wanted to share a little more from Tarans wedding earlier this year. Her colour scheme was my favorite one I have seen yet. Blush + Gold = Perfection. I couldn't fault anything from Tarans weddings she did the most beautiful job planning.
Recently I was sent the Bondi Sands Liquid Gold and the Everyday Liquid Gold Tanning Dry Oil to try out. Ive been a long time user and lover of the Bondi Sands Tanning Foam so was intrigued to try something new with such good reviews already...
