Winter must have products

Winter has nearly approached us again. The hot soups, warm socks, rugged up in a blanket on the lounge watching movies. Below are a couple of favourites I cant go without in the colder months.


This stuff is a lifesaver for the lips during the colder weather. Say goodbye to chapped, dry lips and hello to supple pouters. I adore this product and it lasts forever.


There is nothing better in my opionion then on a cold rainy night then to be all rugged up and enjoying a hot bowl of pumpkin soup. Not only is delicious but it is packed full of essential nutrients, vitamins and anitoxidants. Plus it is low in fat which makes this winter meal nearly completely guilt free.


This is a wonder product, completely natural and versatile. It makes a fabulous hair treatment, great makeup remover and if you add a couple of drops of this in your normal moisturiser it will save your skin in Winter. It does not clog pores so even people with sensitive skin can use it.


I am a complete sucker when it comes to Winter fashion and I think every female should own at least one cute winter headgear. Knitted beanies are my favourite. You can keep your head and ears warm while still looking stylish.


One lady can never have enough shoes, and while we are on the topic of fashion, winter boots are an essential. Knee high, ankle boots, suede and leather..... I can not get enough of them. You don't need to spend a small fortune either. I have made quite a few purchases from Cotton On online store for cute, stylish afforadable fashion for your feet.


Chocolate is good at anytime of the year..... but nothing beats a hot chocolate on a cold day :)

What are your Winter must haves or favourite Winter recipies???

Blue Eye Makeup

So when Im not making lunches and dinner, taking kids to school, housework or playing taxi..... Im playing with makeup. It is one of my quilty obessions that I can't let go of. The colours, the transformations, the sparkles... I love everything about it. Don't get me wrong, Im all for the "natural" beauty kind of thing....but for me my "natural" beauty stays indoors and makeup is put on when I step out into the world. I like to be able to cover any evidence of sleepless nights, hormanal breakouts and feeling human. I don't really ever get the time to do the whole eyeshadow thing with amazing colours, cut crease, blending and so forth. So when the opportunity eventuates my favourite colour to play with is blue. Blue eyeshadow. Blue eyeliner. Blue glitter. I love blue on the eyes.

One of my favourite blue eye products is NYX eye glitter liner. It is a beautiful touch when you have finished your look to line over your eyeliner and lashes with this. The colour is devine and really makes your eyes just sparkle, I love it.

Another product that I use time and time again is the Coastal Scents blue gel eyeliner. The colour payoff is brilliant and this baby just lasts all day long. Long wearing, no smudging, no flaking, a 10 out of 10.

What are your favourite eye colours/ products that you play with??

My everyday eye makeup look

This would have to be my "go to" look every day. It is so simple yet so effective. Black eyeliner, black mascara, no eyeshadow. Because your not wearing colours on your eyes you can team it up with a bright lip and get away with it or you can stick with neutrals, either way it looks great.

My holy grail eyeliner is the Revlon Colorstay in the liquid. It is AMAAAAAAAAAAAAZING! It does not smudge or fade. And with the pen like applicator you can have it as thick or thin as you like. I adore this product.

My mascara of choice at the moment is the Covergirl Lash Blast. I actually prefer the plastic brush applicators better, I feel for me, I can get to more of my lashes with it. This mascara does not flake, smudge etc..... it is fantastic!

What is your "go to" look??
