Collective Haul pt 1

Finally, I've got some free time on my hands! My summer has been super busy, between work, family and my boyfriend, I haven't had much time to blog the way I had planned from the begining! So here's my first haul, keep in mind this is collective (I didn't go out and buy all this yesterday!) So from the middle of July until now, here are most of the things I've gotten! Enjoooooy :)
Ps: excuse the picture quality!

So I finally picked up two blushes I've been contemplating for a long time now. I'm usually really pale and wasn't sure if I'd pull these two off, but with my summer tan I decided to give in! I picked up Trace Gold & Springsheen. After buying and wearing both of them for the past few weeks, I realized they will both look good on pale skin in the winter too! Springsheen is a soft pink with gold reflects. It's similiar to Orgasm by NARS (in my opinion!) Anyways, It's gorgeous! Trace Gold is a peachy gold, when wearing it my cheeks look like they're glowing, it's so pretty! In the winter, I feel like I would have to apply this lightly, or else I would have orange glowing cheeks, but with a light hand it will look good all year around :) I'm glad I bought both of these!

Lipgelee's in Moonstone and Saplicious! Long story behind this one, Saplicious was the last one in the city I live in so I'm glad I finally hunted it down and bought it! Moonstone is a silver-ish baby pink, very frosty but looks awesome over a nude lip. Saplicious is a neutral warm colour, perfect if you wanted a toned down lip, with just a hint of colour.

Urban Decay Primer Potion: No lengthy explanation here, just needed more!
Mac Lipglass in Nymphette: Looooove. Warm pink with gold reflects, looks gorgeous on any lip. Would reccomend to anyone! Swatch doesn't really do much justice, but that's probably because this camera isn't that great either!

Will update the rest tomorrow, see you then!
Ally :)

Things in my life have been hectic! I'm finishing up exams right now and starting a new job this Sunday- so I've just been unable to update as much as a planned on. But I'll be back and updating within the next week or so, talk to you all soon :)



It was my boys 19th today, and we got to fit a couple hours in together between studying and working on presentations! It's almost two years we've been together now and for the second birthday in a row, I got him Warped Tour tickets! + taking him and all his friends out for wings and pitchers of beer :) After that we'll probably head back to my place for a bonfire and more drinks! That pretty much sums up the upcoming weekend! So here's a picture of us just hanging around in my backyard today....

Btw, I'm wearing MAC's Splashing lipgloss from the To The Beach collection & I loooooooove it! I wasn't really interested in anything else in the collection for some reason, but this definitely caught my eye!
Talk to you all sooooon :)



Wow, I've been absent lately! Life's been super busy and it's my boyfriends 19th tomorrow!Sorry - posts coming soon :)


Bright and Bold!

With summer here, I figured I'd give a couple bright lipsticks a go! I usually wear more neutral colours, or more toned down versions of brighter colours but I thought this summer I would try wearing bright and bold lipstick every once in a while :) So I went to my local MAC store and picked up Vegas Volt(left) & Impassioned(right)!

Vegas Volt is more of a vibrant peach, in my opinion. I recommend putting on a lip moisturizer before hand if you have dry lips, it will last longer and look more even through out the day! Impassioned is a hot pink/fushia colour - extremely bold. I'd say that Vegas Volt is a more wearable daytime lipstick, it's still bright but just not as bold as Impassioned! I'm loving them both atm, although I do have to get more used to Impassioned!
Below are some swatches :)

Talk to you again soon!
