Make Up Post: E bay Blush!

Hey Guys sorry for the lack of posts lately!
its getting close to the end of semester for my fashion course so its getting a little hectic i haven't had much time for my blog! any way enough of the excuses, i don't have a fashion post for you today but i just got this blush pallet in the mail that i bought from eBay and it made my day so i thought i would do a quick post to tell you guys about it :)

i absolutly love my makeup and it is one of my many addictions and i havejust recently discovered the world of eBay (i had never bought anything from ebay). so i bought this blush pallet from eBay for $7 on auction (i think the buy it now price is something like $10) and it comes with 28 different blush colours!

 i got the package and non of the pieces had broken and it was all in good condition. i tried some swatches on my arm (see pics above) and they are actually quite pigmented too! i love the colours on them, it gives you such a huge variety and i think that especially for the price that this pallet is amazing.
i cant wait to try it out and i will be sure to let you guys know if they work well.

i compared the size of the blushes with the the Australian $1 coin and they are slightly bigger than it maybe more like a 20c coin (i only had a dollar on me) so i think they could be a bit bigger but I'm happy with them for the price and its not like i have a shortage of them!

so i am now officially an eBay shopahollic its just so cheap and addictive it's a dangerous place to shop haha

here's the link for it

and the sellers name: yong-lan988

Jelly beans

i cannot begin to express how super excited i am!
i used to wear these awesome jelly sandals all the time as a kid i absolutely loved wearing them in the water at the beach. i wondered what happened to them as they mysteriously disappeared but lately i have noticed they have made a comeback and i have seen a few on blogs, look book and in the streets but no were to be seen in shops! so i finally realized that just maybe i could find them online (i dont shop online much so its not usually the first idea that comes to my head) and sure enough i did!
i ordered these super cute redrover jellies from http://jbeans.com.au/buy-jellys.html and i cannot wait till they come i am so excited i just had to do a little rant, oh how i wish they would arrive now!.
tell me what you guys think of jellies? are you as obsessed with them as i am!?

any who i have a fashion post for you to!

so winter is starting to creep up on us down under in the land of Auz and the last couple of days has been slightly chilly (nothing compared to what some of you experience as chilly i can assure you) and very wet with rain! so while i had a small amount of sunshine i wanted to post a very summery look while i still can before the sun decides to hide behind the clouds for winter
hope you like it!

as you may have guessed the other day we went on a very successful opshopping spree in wynnum!
i gathered all the change i could find in my house (which is a lot because we tend to collect it in bowls around the house) i found about $40 in 50c, 20c and 10c pieces spent it all and came out with 2x shirts, pair of pants, a blazer, pair of earrings, bangles and a hand bag.
Drea bought herself a bunch of knitted jumpers (they are kinda her thing, she probably has more knitted jumpers than other clothes)


dress: hand me down from mum
hat: sportsgirl
bag: OPSHOP for $6.50
blazer: OPSHOP for $15
earrings: OPSHOP for $5
shoes: wittner 
 rings: Diva

Drea is wearing:
velvet dress : paper heart
knitted jumper: OPSHOP for $12
shoes: Vans 
jewellery: Markets in noosa 

this week has been an awesome week! my besty came to visit me from melbourne! i miss her so much :'( sad she had to leave today. yesterday we went to south bank in brizzy and had ourselves a little pick nick! we cooked sausages on the barbie and ate delicious hot dogs :)


south bank has a cute little "beach" i put it in inverted commas because it is a fake or man made beach no were near as good as the real thing i find it lacks the salt, waves, seaweed and all the little beachy things that make it a beach but i have to give them credit for importing sand and creating a little oasis in brisbane city next to the river. also a fake beach is better than no beach which i find brisbane lacks!

at the end of the day we took my little dogs for a walk!
and we have Drea being Drea
