Current Obsession: TonyMoly

Hey everyone!

Really, I don’t consider myself to be particularly fussy when it comes to beauty products. All I require is that it’s cute, smells/tastes good and is relatively cheap. Usually when I buy something it covers at least one of the three criteria, but when I find something that checks ALL the boxes? Well, that’s when I start to dance like Leslie Knope.

The Costanza Effect

So, do you know those days that just feel really, really super drab? Actually, it doesn’t even have to be a day. It could be a week, month, maybe even a year if you’re really unlucky. There’s just something about that feeling that creeps up on you and suddenly you don’t really want to go out and do new things. As someone who’s stayed relatively within her comfort zone for most her life, I can understand how easy it can be to just slide into a routine. There are no risks, no hidden dangers. You know that everything’s going to be OK because you’ve done it so many times before.

However, the side effect of this is something very treacherous indeed: boredom. Even though we like these activities, there’s only so long we can do them repeatedly before they get tiring. So what’s the best way to combat this? It might sound weird, but hear me out. What I’ve found really works is to think like George Costanza, and by this I don’t mean creating a fake business in order to sound important to people you don’t know (Vandelay Industries, I’m looking at you)! What I’m talking about is the episode where he decides to do the opposite of everything he’s used to. If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend you check it out, but the general gist of the episode is that by getting out of his comfort zone, George ended up feeling the best he’s felt in a long time.

So if you’re feeling a little dull, I suggest this: have Nandos instead of your usual Maccas. Take the bus home instead of the train. Wear your hair in a ponytail for the first time in what feels like ages. It might feel weird at first, but life is so much richer when you have new experiences. It’s like adding extra toppings to an already delicious ice cream sundae. You can see new things, meet new people and look at the world with different eyes. The only thing you need to do is channel your inner Costanza.

Happy opposite-ing!

Lots of love

Pretty in Pastel

from http://fuckyeahcoloredhair.tumblr.com/

Hey everyone!

Gosh, it feels like I’ve been gone forever! After re-emerging from my mostly internet-free holiday I could barely recognise the online world; Ariana Grande is now a notorious America-hater and donut-licker, everyone knows what Justin Bieber’s butt looks like, McDonalds has released minion figurines that swear at you depending on what you’re listening for and a freaking shoe with a pair of nail polishes is coming pretty darn close to breaking the internet! The internet is a crazy place, and it’s good to be back; I’ve missed you guys so much.

Anyways, moving right along!

If there’s one thing that has also changed over my one-week break, it’s my hair. Yes, it brings me great excitement to tell you at this very moment I am the proud owner of some pastel-streaked locks! So how did I do it? Through a process of trial and error! However, since I have personally experienced all of these trials and errors, I can impart my newly-found wisdom onto you so you don’t have any hair-dye disasters.

Post a Quote a Day Challenge Day #2

Take your make-up off/ Let your hair down/ Take a breath/ Look into the mirror, at yourself/ Don’t you like you?/ ‘Cause I like you

Do you guys remember when Colbie Calliat’s music video for ‘Try’ came out? I do, very clearly. I remember reading an article on Buzzfeed about it and a gif set from the video almost bringing me to tears! When I saw the full music video, though, I really started crying. At the time I didn’t know why I had gotten so emotional, but now when I look back on it I think that it was something to do with the fact that subconsciously I could strongly relate to the message of the song. I, like most girls, have felt this pressure growing up to adhere to society’s idea of ‘beautiful’. When I noticed that the boys in my year weren’t looking at me and the only person who called me pretty was my mum, I began to think that there was something wrong with me. I didn’t really have a problem with how I looked, but because other people didn’t approve of me I felt like I wasn’t good enough.

Of course, this idea I had was absolutely ridiculous! The only person I should have ever aimed to impress was myself, and that is why I love this quote so much. In this video Colbie isn’t saying that there’s anything wrong with wearing makeup, but rather you shouldn’t be wearing it as a mask to impress others. At the end of the day, although wearing makeup is really nice, you should be able to take a makeup wipe to your face, look in the mirror and think ‘hey, I am beautiful!’. It took me a while to get to that point, and it was difficult. Even now I have my ‘off’ days, but this song serves as a reminder to me that, even when I don’t feel like it’s possible, I am beautiful and I don’t need to try to be anything to impress anyone. Needless to say, I think that this video should be required viewing for all women!

Here it is. Get the tissues ready.

Ok, that’s all from me!

Today I nominate Dark Charm to take on this challenge 😛

I hope you guys are having an amazing day

Lots of love

Everything I Bought at Supanova

IMG_5858

Wow. Just wow.

I am actually still in shock.

It really is a testament to how amazing  Nathan Fillion’s fans are when after I write one post about him my blog traffic reaches an all-time high!

I would just like to take a moment to say a massive thank you to everybody who shared, retweeted and liked my post! It’s truly insane to think that so many people have read what I had to say and seen all of my spelling errors! 😛 You are all amazing and completely made my week! I don’t think I can thank you enough XD

Alrighty, on to today’s blog post!

Now, second to the amazing panels of course, one of my favourite things about conventions is the amazing merchandise! Conventions really are the best place to get some of the most amazing, one-of-a-kind geeky goodies. I actually got so amped up about what I bought at Oz Comic Con earlier this year that I ended up writing my first proper blog post about it! So, keeping in line with my tradition of spending disproportionate amounts of money and writing about it, I have decided to share with you guys everything that I bought at Supanova!

OOTD: Newmar and Nighties

Hello everyone!

Now, I will admit straight out of the gate that I am not a major Batman fan. I don’t read Batman comics, haven’t seen any of the movies (except for ‘Batman and Robin’, but I’m not sure if that example’s entirely COOL *insert Arnold Schwarznegger laughing*) and I’ve only seen a fraction of the 1966 TV series.

However, all of this being said, I simply adore Catwoman.
