My Favourite Things #23

Popbasic Polka Dot Blouse
This finally arrived last week and is my most favourite piece of clothing ever.  I really like blouses, I think I need to get some more.  I just love how classic it looks, the black and the white polka dots. It would look great all dressed up with a skirt or dressed down with some jeans. Gotta love versatility. 

There is a Popbasic link along the sidebar at the bottom and if you click on it you'll get $15 credit to go towards one of their amazing collections!
Taylor Swift - 1989
I very rarely buy a whole album, usually I just do songs at a time which I know that I like.  However after hearing Shake it off, Welcome to New York and Out of the Woods I took the leap and got the whole album. I was not disappointed.  The whole album is amazing! At the moment the ones I listen to the most is Style, Wildest Dreams and New Romantics.  I already have the album digitally but I really want to get the hard copy as it comes with a series of polaroid's... yeah I'm definitely going to get it.

Tomorrow is Lorde's concert in Auckland and I'm pretty excited, not as much as my sister, but still excited.  This this is the first time I'm seeing her live, I know it's going to be good so I'm really looking forward to it.  I am thinking of rocking her signature dark purple lip but not sure yet.

Hope you all enjoyed this post and have a great weekend and Halloween if you're into that.

Makeup Clearance Company Haul


Last week while wandering aimlessly around the city I came across a Makeup Clearance store in the Downtown Westfield.  It was the first time I'd seen it there and needed to have a look.  I got the chance on Thursday which was a special day as my Student Allowance finally came so I was in the mood to spend.  So yeah I kinda went a bit crazy especially when it came to the lipsticks, I was good though in that I didn't even go near the O.P.I's.
From Left to Right:
Maybelline 985, Infra-Red
I nearly didn't buy this one. I already had the three lipsticks and the concealer but I just couldn't help myself.  I can't resist a gorgeous red, and I knew if I didn't get it I would regret it forever.  I basically bought it so I could emulate Taylor Swift.  The bullet looks very red but when applied it's more of an orangey red but is still a gorgeous colour.
Revlon Super Lustrous 485, Raspberry Freeze
As soon as I saw this colour I wanted to get it.  I already has a Super Lustrous lipstick which I have raved about numerous times on the blog such as here so I knew it was a good lipstick.  The name is also what got me, the same goes with nail polishes if it has a cool name I'm more likely to get it.  I just like the pairing of Raspberry and Freeze, I dunno I'm a bit of a word freak.  The colour is a demure purple I guess, all I know is that it is gorgeous.  It comes off a more pinkish purple but still purple if you get what I mean. I'll stop now.
Maybelline Colour Whisper 290, Strike a Rose
I've always wanted a light pink colour that was more like a gloss type thing and as soon as I swatched this I knew I had to have it.  As the name 'Colour Whisper' might suggest the colour is more like a tint/lip-gloss situation. I love it, it gives a nice pink gloss to my lips and my fear of having patchy lips is not needed as it's not that noticeable.
Rimmel Kate Moss 103
I was so excited when I saw they had these lipsticks. Unfortunately 107 was not there *sigh* but I did find this colour which caught my eye.  It's a pinky nude which I thought was gorgeous. I don't really have a nude so I got it of course, it will be nice to wear just on an everyday basis.
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal
As soon as I saw this I knew I had to get it.  I've heard Shannon from Shaaanxo rave about it and use in her video's so I knew I had to find some.  I got the lightest shade that was there, Natural, so hoped it would be ok.  So far I've used it once and it wasn't too dark, YUS! I've noticed it's more thicker and more yellow in colour compared to my Collection Cosmetics concealer but I really like it.  My Collection Cosmetics one is definitely more brighter so will maybe be better suited for the under eye area.
Hope you all enjoyed this post! I'm struggling with studying at the moment, there is just so much to study and the lecturer's have given no hints to what the questions are going to cover *sigh* lets hope my memory has improved.

Waiheke Adventures


Hope you all had a great weekend and if you in New Zealand are still enjoying the long weekend YAY! This weekend has been a lazy one for me but some exciting things did happen. On Saturday I got a new laptop since my last one just gave up on life R.I.P. So this post is being written on my favourite new toy which is awesome. 
For this weekend my Mum randomly decided that we were going to go to Waiheke, so yesterday we did.  The day wasn't really the best, it was overcast and not to mentioned windy as hell so I was freezing the entire time.  My brother decided not to take a jumper at all so had to buy one while we were there. 
I hadn't been on a ferry since I was a child so I was a bit excited for the trip.  Aside for the occasional up and down motion the trip was basically similar to that of a train which I've taken almost everyday for the past four years so it kind of felt familiar but had better views.  Once we got there we went on a little tour and saw some amazing houses which I would love to one day have.  We didn't stay there long, we looked at all the little shops in it's only little town and pretty much all the time was spent having lunch which was so good.
And of course I took some photo's of the view
Aside for the freezing wind it was a nice day out.  Hopefully there will be another longer visit so I can explore the rest of the island.
Hope you all enjoyed this post! I've got to now force myself to study as my first exam is in a week :/ It's a little daunting, there is so many things to remember.

My Favourite Things #22

Last Week of Uni
Today is officially the last day of classes for the semester.  All that's left is exams and if all goes well I will have finally got my degree. It's a bit scary thinking about it especially when I'm not entirely sure on what I am doing next year but it's good to be finally done and having the sense of achieving something.

Tanya Burr Vlogs
Tanya vlogged everyday during September but it wasn't until the end of that month where I started watching them.  Since then I've been watching them over the last couple of weeks and on Monday I finished them.  It was a bit sad, it kind of became apart of my routine and now I don't know what to do with myself.  I especially enjoyed the ones with bits and pieces from London Fashion Week but I loved all of them.

New Taylor Swift Songs
I wasn't really the biggest Taylor Swift fan but I am obsessed with her new songs. It all started with Shake it off, which you can't help but dance to, and now it's Out of the Woods and Welcome to New York.  I love both songs.  Welcome to New York is very eighties and if possible makes me want to go to New York even more.  Overall my favourite would have to be Out of the Woods, I'm not quite sure why but I've had it on repeat for the last couple of days and am still not sick of it yet. 

Hope you all enjoyed this post and if your in New Zealand have a great Labour Weekend! :D
