February Review


Like I said last month I can't believe that it's already March. The year is going way too fast. Uni started today, my first class isn't until tomorrow so today I'm mentally preparing for it. It's also my birthday on Friday so this week is very busy.

Here are the posts you may of missed last month.

Skinfood Mud Masque
I've heard how great this is via beauty groups on Facebook so I decided to try it out and was not disappointed.

Naked Basics Palette
I bought myself this as a little present for getting my degree and am excited to use it.

Venus and Adonis - Titian
An Art History post was long overdue and this one is one of the paintings I'm looking at studying for my Honours paper.

Red Red Red
While looking through my lipsticks I discovered a recurring theme, red. These are most of my red lipsticks.

Feel Unique #003
Another purchase from Feel Unique in which another red lip colour was bought.

Bloodlines - The Ruby Circle
A little book review of the last book that makes up my favourite book series.

Hope you all enjoyed this post! xx

My Favourite Things #33



Passport
My passport finally came today and I'm really excited to have one. It's my first and I'm really fascinated with it.  Thanks to it being black and white I look very washed out in my photo, oh well.
 
Typo Diary
On Tuesday I went into Uni for an orientation thing and while I was there I thought I would go into Typo to see what diaries they had.  I was about to go for a blue/green one but then I saw this gorgeous peachy pink one, I love it.
 
Typo Letter
While I was there I saw these stick on letters. While I didn't need it I got one because it's pretty and I have no control. It's now stuck to my door.
 
Hope you all enjoyed this post and have an amazing weekend! Next week is the start of the first semester of uni, I'm a bit nervous but also looking forward to doing something that's not lounging around all day.

Bloodlines - The Ruby Circle


If you've been reading the blog for a while you'll know how much I love the Bloodline series as well as its predecessor Vampire Academy.  This is the last book of the series which I'm sad about but it had to end sometime.

I did a review of the previous book, Silver Shadows here. Like with that review if you haven't read the previous books be prepared to see some spoiler alerts, you've been warned.
 
This book again swaps between Adrian and Sydney's perspectives as they deal with the aftermath of them getting married and Jill being kidnapped.  The book is basically a journey of them finding her, Sydney coming up against an old enemy, as well as some other stuff which I'll won't mention.  There were a couple of omg moments which is great as they make the story more exciting and just makes me want to read the whole thing in one go.
 
Overall the book was great and the ending was good and nicely finished off the series with the characters getting their own happy endings.
 
Hope you all enjoyed this post! xx

My Favourite Things #32


1 Day Beauty Deals
1 Day is an awesome website which has three different deals which last for one day.  Last week they had some beauty deals which I had to have a look at. I was so tempted to get a O.P.I set but ended up just getting one thing.  They had three Maybelline Volume Express Mascaras for $20 which I thought was a great deal as one is basically $20 anyway.  I needed a new mascara so now I've got some backups.
 
Love Tanya
This is Tanya's first book and I wasn't planning on getting it but when she started sharing images from the book I had to get it. The photo's are all gorgeous and I love how bright and pink the cover is.  The books a mix of everything; recipes, beauty tips, fashion tips and other things. I'm really excited to read it.
 
Getting out of the house
Uni hasn't started yet and over the break I've just been at home all of the time. Yesterday I ventured into uni to go to the library *yawn* but it was nice to have a change of scenery and just walk around the city.
 
Hope you all enjoyed this post and have a great weekend! xx
