Beauty, LifeStyle, Product Review, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

It’s time for another Bellabox review, this months box is a global glamour theme with items that you can take away on holiday with you or that you can use to get your skin feeling & looking great before a trip.

5556

Emily Fruit Crisps Crunchy Fig Banana

IMG_0058

I am not much of a dried fruit eater but these crisps taste so yummy & you can  taste the banana with each piece.

This particular brand is vegan & completely natural as well so its a snack you can eat without feeling guilty.

You can purchase this product from Coles for $4 dollars for a 30g bag.

Swisse Bamboo Facial Exfoliant

IMG_0063

Unless you have been living under a rock I am sure you would have heard of the Swisse brand.

The product itself has a slight minty scent to it & I really like the packaging.

On the information card it says it formulated to to detoxify & gently remove dead skin cells for a renewed complexion & is enriched with micro particles of bamboo, rice bran & walnut shell.

I don’t personally have/use many exfoliates so I am looking forward to giving this one a try.

You can purchase this product from Priceline, Chemist Warehouse & selected pharmacies nationally for $9.95 for 125ml.

Manna Kadar Blossum Floral Blush Compact

IMG_0065   IMG_0066

Firstly how beautiful is the packaging!!

IMG_0067

I am really excited to add another Manna Kadar make up to my collection as I do really like their products & its a brand that without Bellabox I may never have come into contact with.

The product is very small & convenient for travel especially having the 3 shades together it saves you having to pack each product separately.

You can purchase this product via the Manna Kadar website for $29US dollars for 9.5g

Bioderma Sensibo

IMG_0060

Another great product to use whilst traveling, this item is an essential for anyone & this sample size is a great room saver for packing and is incredibly cute.

I still haven’t given this product by Bioderma a go yet but I really do need to as I am always hearing good things about their products.

You can purchase this product from Priceline for $21.99 for 250ml

La Roche Posay Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic acid Serum & Moisturiser

IMG_0061  IMG_0062

This is another product with lovely packaging, I really love brands that package their product well & use colours that go together.

The information card says that it is the perfect anti-aging power duo to hydrate and re-plump your skin while facilitating repair.

Its formulated with two types of pure Hyaluronic acid to penetrate the skin for deep re-plumping action from within, while stimulating collagen synthesis, as well as Vitamin B5 to promote the skins barrier’s natural repair processes.

You can purchase both products from Chemist Warehouse or Priceline for either $69.95 for the serum or $59.95 for the moisturiser.

Nerium Eye-V Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches

IMG_0064

I think this months box was products with amazing packaging month!!

This packaging is simple and basic but it all goes so well together with the mix of the blue, light and dark grey.

The information card says this product delivers targeted hydration to the skin around your eyes.

You can purchase this product from Nerium directly for $75 dollars for patches

I was really impressed with this months Bellabox, there were alot of great products and they really kept to the theme of this months box with the items.

What item would you most like to try?

Until next time

5 Things I can’t live without

LifeStyle, Real Life, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I thought I would do a different kind of post today something that I haven’t done before so I thought I would do a little list about 5 things that I can’t live without.

  • My Family

IMG_0122

You can’t start a list without your family, I am very close to my mum and my sister & couldn’t imagine my life without them especially. But having said that I feel the same about my dad, my nana & my extended family.  For me your family makes you who you are, they keep you grounded & are that constant support & love that you can always count on no matter what.

  • My Partner

48889999

After nearly 10 years together I definitely couldn’t live without my fiance, he is my favourite person in the world & helps be the best person I can be. It’s funny I have spent 17 years of my life before I met him and now I can’t go a day or two without being with him.

  • Music

the ,man

Music is such an important part of life, you can express yourself through music & no matter how I am feeling music always makes me feel better.

I have loved music since such an early age I can actually vividly remember a picture that my mum has of me I look about 3 years old & I am standing at our radio with these massive old school headphones on.

  • Friends

FullSizeRender

Just like my family & partner, my friends play an incredible part of my life. I wouldn’t say I have a lot of friends at all but the quality of friends I have is something I couldn’t live without.

Everyone needs to have at least one good friend in their life & thankfully I am lucky enough to have a small handful.

  • Football

IMG_2194

As you all know by now I love my football team and footy in general. Every weekend during the footy season you will find me at the game watching my favourite team Richmond or if we are playing interstate, I’ll be watching the game on the TV. 

Even when my team isn’t playing I can still be found watching all the other teams play. My whole world revolves around football if our game is on and we have a function to go to I’m not going… I know I am literally one of those crazy people.

So that is my 5 things that I can’t live without, there is definitely alot more things but if I listed them all you would be here all day.

I would love to know what is one of the things that you can’t live without, let me know in the comments.

Until next time

Daiso Compressed Facial Mask

Beauty, Opinion, Product Review, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I recently went to Daiso to buy some makeup organisers and came across this pack of facial masks which caught my eye as they are so different & unusual looking.

If you haven’t been to Daiso before its a Japanese shop that sells all different types of products from beauty, household & food etc with everything only costing $2.80 each

You get 12 masks that are each individually packaged there was a couple of different types of the compressed masks.

I thought I would try them out & see what they are like.

Packaging

The packaging is simple with just the clear plastic with yellow & black writing. I like that the packaging is resealable & that it includes English translation on the back of the packaging.

How To:

From what I can understand from the English translation there are 4 steps on how to use these masks

Step 1 – wash your face

Step 2 – apply enough lotion to the mask for it to swell up

Step 3 – open the wet mask carefully and place it over your face

Step 4 – wait about 10 minutes, then remove the mask

Process:

So I washed my face & then got a small bowl of water ready to use to swell up the mask, the mask doesn’t have any smell to it & when you take it out of the packaging it’s just like a massive tablet.

IMG_3797

So initially when I ready lotion I was like I could just use water to expand the mask which worked obviously except I noticed whilst laying down with the mask on that it wouldn’t actually do anything without a product or lotion on the actual mask ( It embarrasses me that it took me this long to realise this)

It was quite interesting seeing the mask dissolved from a tablet to the actual mask, I should have probably got a bigger bowl to out it as I had to unravel it more to get the mask to full size.

IMG_3802

I ended up putting a lotion that I had lying around that my sister had given me it was a dermologica product  & left that on for about 10 minutes.

My Thoughts:

For $2.80 the product is quite good, I think if I had a better lotion to put on the mask I would have enjoyed it more.

The only thing I don’t like with these masks is as you can see from the picture below they never fit my face properly & I look so weird I envy those instagram models who can make these masks look amazing in pictures.

IMG_3800

I think for the price the product is worthwhile and something I will use again.

Rating: I would give this product a 5 out of 10

Have you purchased products from Daiso before? What are your favourite items to buy from there?

Until next time

Bellabox Review June 2018

Beauty, Opinion, Product Review, review, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

It’s time for another Bellabox review, I know it feels like I just did one but well that would be because I did.

The theme of this months box is items to keep you looking amazing this winter, see below for my review on the June Bellabox

pic 7

Item 1 – Nails Inc London

pic 6

How pretty is this nail colour from Nails Inc, I hadn’t heard of Nails Inc before but this colour is really pretty.

The colour I got was Collingham Place its a really pretty nude colour.

I think the only downside with this nail polish for me personally is the price, $23 dollars for 10ml nail polish seems a bit steep especially given that you only get 10ml.

You can purchase Nails Inc products from Sephora & David Jones

Item 2 – La’ Bang Body Hydrate Me Hair Treatment

pic 3

How pretty is this packaging!! It has such a summer beachy vibe to it with the colours and the palm tree.

I have never used hair masks before so I am interested to try this out & see what its like.

This particular mask has all natural ingredients to hydrate your hair & scalp to produce smooth, healthy & luscious looking hair.

La’ Bang Body is made in Australia & is vegan as well as cruelty free.

I think I will do a review about the mask & let you all know what I think about it.

You can pick up these masks from La Bang Body’s website for $18 dollars for 100ml

Item 3 – Burt’s Bees Skin Nourishment night cream

pic 5

The next product I came across was the Burt’s Bees night cream with Royal Jelly, it says on the information card that this moisturiser will rejuvenate the skin overnight & leave it feeling radiant and healthy looking.

You can purchase this night cream from Chemist Warehouse, Priceline, David Jones & Myer for $39.99 for 51g.

Item 4 – Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Daily Moisturiser

pic 1

I am really loving the packaging of this product as well, the colours on the box and the product go really well together.

It says on the packaging that it is clinically proven to soften skin and moisturise throughout the day & reduce the look of dullness and roughness.

You can purchase this product from Chemist Warehouse & Priceline for $14.99 for 88ml

Item 5 – Garnier Skin Active Rescue Mask in Juicy Lemon

pic 4

This face mask sounds really good, it has lemon extract that will illuminate your skin for a smooth, radiant complexion with a healthy glow.

You can purchase this product from Priceline, Big W & Target for $3.95

Item 6 – Zuii Organic Certified Gradual Face Tan Lotion

pic 2

The bonus item this month was a sample of the gradual face tan lotion by Zuii Organic, which I didn’t know that Zuii Organic did tanning lotion.

You can pick a full size gradual tan from their website for $29.50 for 50ml

That’s all the product in this months Bellabox, have you tried any of these products before?

Hope you all liked this post, keep a look out for my next post which will be up soon.

Until next time

Weekend Recap

LifeStyle, Real Life, Uncategorized

Hey Lovelies,

I feel like I haven’t done a weekend recap in forever not that I really got up to much this weekend ( which lets be honest is stock standard for me) but I thought it would be good to do another post like this.

Friday 6th July 2018

I was supposed to go to the footy however my sister was sick with the flu so we decided to watch it at my mums house with some snacks.

So I drove there after work and we watched the footy together, I left my mums at about 11pm and drove back to my place. I didn’t get back home until just after midnight because I live near a freeway they decided they would do all these roadworks which meant I had to take all these detours to get to my house.. so frustrating.

Saturday 7th July 2018

Today I had a bit of a sleep in & didn’t roll out of bed until about 11.30am but I was sitting up playing the Love Island Game for about half an hour I have become obsessed, is any one else playing it?

After I got up I watched a little bit of TV & then went out to get some lunch from the local shops, we went to Ferguson Plarre & got some pies and sausage rolls for lunch.

In the afternoon I decided to watch How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days which is now on Netflix and then woke up at 5.30pm after an unplanned nap.

Later that night we got pizza for dinner & I decided to watch The Last Song which was on TV, I am such a weirdo even though I have seen the movie before I still cried my eyes out when watching it (hopefully I am not the only one)

Sunday 8th July 2018

On Sundays we clean & do the washing which is what I have been doing today & to be honest I havebt really done much else.

Once I finish the post I plan on watching Fifty Shades Freed on the couch as I haven’t watched it yet & have been meaning to for awhile.

The weekends are going so fast I feel like by the time they begin they are over again.

What did you get up to this weekend?

Until next time

1 Year of Everything Missguided

LifeStyle, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

Can you believe it?? It has been 1 year since I randomly decided to start this little blog of mine.

I still feel like a blogging newbie & there is still so much I have to learn about the blogging world.

My first year of blogging hasn’t been without its challenges so I thought I would share a few tips about blogging that I have picked up on the way for anyone who has either just started a blog or who is thinking about starting one up to give you an inside into what blogging is really like.

It’s not easy

I think there is a perception out there (well strike out think with know) that blogging is easy and that people who are full time bloggers are lazy because its not a “regular” full time job.

Firstly let me just tell you they have no idea what they’re talking about there is so much more to blogging then anyone thinks of especially if you’re going to take the big leap into making it a full time job,

For me currently I work full time & then come home and work on blog posts, check out social media to catch up with other bloggers & to also check out my posts, reply to comments etc even if you don’t make blogging your full time job its a hobby that is full on.

You’re constantly taking photos of products you have purchased, writing your blog posts, chatting with your followers and other bloggers on social media, posting to social media (various platforms), thinking of new content to blog about & the list goes on

There is so much more to blogging then just sitting on a computer or laptop typing up a post and publishing it & unless you are a blogger (or you live with one) you cant even imagine the work that goes into publishing each post & running a blog.

I will admit when I first started blogging it seemed so easy, I had been reading other bloggers content and was like this sounds really easy and fun but I fast learnt that it is far from easy but it is definitely worth it.

It will test you

I think every blogger at one stage or another have needed to take a break from blogging because it is alot to try and have/run a blog that is successful.

There is so much that comes with blogging that when your trying to maintain a full time job it can be come really stressful trying to juggle the two & for me personally has a couple of times this past year becomes to much & I needed to take a break.

I think although everyone says not to do it, it becomes extremely hard not to compare your blog with other bloggers, especially when you’re starting out you feel like your blog isn’t getting anywhere & you probably are trying work out what you what to blog about etc so you look at other blogs for inspiration but that then leaves you feeling crappy about your own blog….trust me we have all been there.

The best advice I can give is that although you will ultimately compare your blog (lets be honest) to other blogs out there, just try to remember that you will get there one day & that you’re not alone in feeling like your blog isn’t up to scratch we have all felt that way even the well known bloggers would have experienced it. Just stay true to you and your blog and don’t try and change your blog to fit in with what is currently ‘trending’ or to fit in with the top bloggers.

Join in with the blogging community

Now I can’t speak highly enough about being involved in the blogging community, everyone is always so lovely and are always willing to help which when you’re starting out with blogging and have no clue what you’re doing is just what you need.

You can always find other bloggers on any of your social media platforms and there is always posts on twitter about joining pods for commenting, I personally like commenting pods especially when you’re first starting out because it gets you meet other bloggers all over the world who without even meeting them you can become really good friends with and it also helps with getting your blog out there into the blogging world so you can find other bloggers to connect with and they can find you.

Starting out blogging was a great decision that I made way back when and although sometimes I stress myself out trying to keep up posting and being present on social media it has taught me so much and has allowed me to meet new people all over the world and allowed to express myself how I want too.

I am looking forward to this next year of blogging and I hope I can add more good content to my blog and maybe even start a little bit of vlogging on my YouTube channel.

Thank you to my 313 followers on WordPress, it means so much to me that you all follow me & check out my posts.

Until next time

Bellabox April & May 2018 Review

Beauty, Product Review, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

Today I am back with a Bellabox Review & seeing as how I have missed the past two months I thought I would combine them all together for one big Bellabox review.

Item1 – NYX Avant Pop Eyeshadow Palette (in the shade Surreal my heart)

7979989

How pretty are these colours, I love the packaging with the white writing against the colours of the palette it’s really simple but still nice.

I will definitely be creating a look with this palette & do a review of it for you all.

You can purchase this palette from Priceline for $34.95

Item 2 – White Glo Charcoal Whitening Toothpaste

888999

I am really looking forward to trying this product I have used White Glo before however I have never tried this particular one with the charcoal particles nor have I tried any other charcoal toothpaste.

It says on the information card that the charcoal particles help detoxify your mouth & remove deep stains & discoloration.

You can pick up this product from Chemist Warehouse, Priceline, Coles & Woolworths for $5.99 for 150ml

Item 3 – Pixi by Petra Lip Balm (Ripe Raspberry)

88888

I have never heard of this brand before, but I really love the packaging with the pink & light apple green.

The smell of this lip balm smells amazing, the shade itself is ripe raspberry & is a lovely light red colour ( the stick looks a lot darker then what it comes out)

You can buy this lip balm or any of the Pixi by Petra products from their website

Item 4 – Revlon Professional Nutri Colour Creme (White Platinum)

225599

I haven’t heard of this particular product before from Revlon but it says its a unique 3 in 1 product that provides instant hair colouring with nourishing treatment for coloured hair. The rich colour provides uniform application from the roots to the tips and good, unwavering colour hold. It has no peroxide & no ammonia.

This particular product is for the white platinum so I will give to my mum to use for her blond hair.

You can purchase this product from Salons for $14.95 for 100ml

Item 5 – La Roche-Posay Serozinc

030301

This is another product that I haven’t heard of before however it does sound very interesting, It says that it is a purifying and mattifying mist enriched with zinc sulphate  designed to target the key signs of oily acne-prone skin. It’s perfect to use as a toner or to refresh your skin at any time of the day.

It says that it is an effective solution to help prevent excess shine & tighten the appearance of pores.

I really like the colours of the product with the blue & white together, it doesn’t have any smell to it which I like & I also like that the product isn’t extremely cold when you spray it which I also really like because I find with other mists are really cold.

You can purchase this product from Chemist Warehouse & Priceline for $24.95 for 150ml

Item 6 – Sun Bum Sunscreen

036164169

This is a brand I haven’t heard of before but I am in love with the look of this product, the colour scheme of yellow and a light brown really go together especially with the gorilla. The product smells of coconuts & is so soft on the skin.

The product is paraben free, cruelty free, gluten free & is hypoallergenic & SPF 30.

You can purchase this product from Priceline for $17.99 for 177ml.

Item 7 – Model Co Baked Highlighter (Shade Moonshine)

ooooo

I feel like these two months worth of boxes are all filled with products that I have never used before.

IMG_3651

This baked highlighter looks amazing, look at that swatch!!!

The highlighter has micronized colour pigments and luxurious pressed powder which delivers a sheer, natural radiance that lasts all day.

You can purchase this product from Model Co directly for $25 dollars for 3.5g

Item 8 – Nivea Rich Moisture Soft Shower Cream

669988

In keeping with the theme of this post this is another product that I haven’t used before.

Opening up the packaging there is a perfume scent to the moisturiser that isn’t overbearing but you can definitely smell it.

The info card says that it will nourish your skin with a rich lather & will leave your skin feeling silky soft & intensively moisturised.

You can purchase this product from Chemist Warehouse or Woolworths for $8 dollars for 500ml

Item 9 – Blaq Eye Mask

IMG_3702

I can’t wait to try this product, if you remember from one of my blogs last year I tried out the blackhead mask which I loved so seeing another Blaq product I cant wait for!!

These eye masks are now with hyaluronic acid & it also has charcoal to de-puff and detox your skin.

I plan to do a review on the eye mask soon so keep a look out for that on my blog.

You can pick up the eye mask on Blaq’s website for $29 dollars for a 5 pack.

Hope you liked this Bellabox review, what item did you most like the look of?

I will definetely be testing out a few different products from April & May’s boxes so keep a look out for them on my blog.

Until next time,

Mariah xx

 

 

 

 

Bathbox Review

Beauty, LifeStyle, Uncategorized

Hi Lovelies,

If you follow me on social media you would know that I purchased some goodies from Bathbox a month or so ago.

I had never heard of Bathbox before but came across them on After pay so thought I would give them a go as there products looked amazing & were so cheap.

So if you haven’t heard of Bathbox before it’s a company that hand makes bath bombs, face masks, scrubs & soaps in Melbourne, Australia. Bathbox was confounded in early 2017 by a lady named Hannah and a small team.

What I purchased

I will admit I may have gone a little crazy but I was just in bath bomb heaven.

So I picked up:

  • Shut Eye Bath Bomb
  • Down by the bay 2017 bath bomb
  • Monsters soap
  • Imperfections soap
  • Mellow Out bath bomb
  • Fix it face & body scrub
  • Five Vibes ( 5 bath bombs)

So in total I got 8 bath bombs, 2 bath soaps & a face mask for $58 (not including $10 postage)

Which I thought was a great price especially given how many I got.

Opening the box when it arrived from the post office you could instantly smell the amazing smell of all the bath bombs & soaps.

Each bath bomb was wrapped in pink or black tissue paper with a sticker on each advising which one it was. There was also a hand written note from the company signed by a lady named Kim which was really nice and not something that you really see nowadays.

My thoughts

I have only so far tried out the Shut eye Bath bomb, the no imperfections soap & the fix it face mask.

Shut Eye Bath Bomb

As I love Lush so much I always find myself comparing any face masks or bath bombs to them and have found that other products either match them with the smell or with the colour that the water turns but never both however I was really impressed that this bath bomb did both!! The water turned a dark purple colour which looked amazing & it smelt amazing with a strong lavender scent.

The bath bomb left my skin feeling really soft as well. I would highly recommend purchasing this bath bomb to anyone.

No Imperfections Soap

IMG_3504

Too be honest I am not a big soap person as I normally use body wash but this soap has really put me back on the soap bandwagon.

This soap leaves my skin feeling really soft & it smells amazing

Fix It Face Mask

When I was looking on their website I cam across this face mask that I really liked the sound of this particular mask because it’s target area is fighting oily skin which ftr me as someone who has oily skin I wanted to see how it worked.

I also like that you can use this mask for both the face & the body.

IMG_3526

The only thing that I didn’t like is the smell of the face mask to me it smells very gardeney (is that a word) but that would stop me from using the mask as I found it worked very well for me.

I will definitely be purchasing more products from Bathbox as they are very affordable & with the products I have tried so far I haven’t been disappointed.

Let me know if you would like me to do a more depth review of the fix it mask & I would be happy to do one.

Until next time

Where have I been?

Hot Topic, Real Life, Uncategorized

Hey 👋

I bet you never thought you would see a post from me again & to be honest I wasn’t sure if you would either.

I don’t even know what to tell you about where I have been or why I haven’t posted on here for about two months because to be honest I don’t really know myself.

I have been wanting to write and check in with you all & secretly I have been somewhat checking in with social media but each time I did, it then kept putting me off coming back.

I noticed that my followers declined and each time I logged into my Instagram they seemed to drop more which is understandable & completely fine because at the end of the day I enjoy writing & if only one person looks at my blog then that’s fine but I guess when your in a shitting place & then you see that your following is dropping it does kind of hurt & really de-motivates you (you wouldn’t be human if you said it didn’t)

Whilst noticing that my followers had dropped it was when looking at who had stopped following me that I really felt like what was the point? I noticed it was a lot of other bloggers who were people that I had spoken to on a weekly basis that had just disappeared which really sucked because I know that I didn’t really say anything I just kind of what MIA but it hurt that none of them reached out to be like hello is Mariah alive? Especially when there were some who themselves had gone through shitty times and I had tried to be there for them.

Before the echoing of “I shouldn’t be forced to follow you just because your another blogger” is paraded all over my twitter feed & I get it I do but what’s so wrong in supporting another person who is in the same “industry” as you? How much would 1 follow really affect your day?? We all started out the same way with no followers, no clue what we’re doing & struggling each week to keep putting together interesting content for our viewers so how about we start empowering each other & supporting each other instead of being like if you cant do anything for me then I am not going to support or follow you.

I also think which a lot of bloggers can relate to is that once I had hit that 1 month hiatus the words of friends & family when I first told them about my blog rang in my head like told you it wouldn’t last & why would you want to be a blogger and it really made me doubt myself and think that they were correct that because I had taken a break that I should just stop blogging all together & that can really cloud your judgement & make you think that, that negativity is true.

So why did I go? To be honest I just lacked all motivation to write anything, my creative juices weren’t flowing and at first it was just going to be a one week break to get back into it but then one week turned to two & then next thing I know it’s been almost two months and I am considering giving it all up together.

But the whole time I have been away I have been wanting to get back into it wondering what I had missed out on & just really wanting to write again so I decided today whilst I lie in a bath I would just write whatever I was feeling about why I had taken a long break & it feels good.

I honestly don’t know what’s going to happen with my blogs how often I will post but I know that I already feel happier knowing that shortly I will hit publish & I will be back.

I apologise if this blog is all over the place as I have just put to paper(well the computer) whatever came to my mind.

Keep a look out for my next post as it will be up soon.

Until next time
