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

We R Star Dust!

i have been wanting to do a post with my galaxy leggings since i got them and i finally got around to it! i am quite obsessed with the galaxy print trend it is just so pretty and i think space is very fascinating. i tried taking these pics with my iPhone today as its a little easier to carry around than my SLR to take pics outside although i'm not as happy with the picture quality. it would be nice if i had a photographer friend to take my  pictures for me or if i had a tripod although if i were to take my camera on a tripod to the park and take pictures of myself i might get some pretty strange looks haha

hope u like it check out more pics xx

Wasting Time

good morning my fellow readers or whatever greeting applies to you for the time of day you are reading this post! i got inspiration for my outfit from my colorful shorts i decided even though it was getting colder i could still wear them just needed something a little warmer like cute boots and a long sleeved shirt :)

i have been busy in my fashion course having fun learning sewing, pattern making, printing and dying and more. i got excited because we were told the other day that our end of year theme for our showcase might be the Great Gatsby! i love the fashion from the 20's it is so glamorous and fun i cant wait to see the movie!

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!
