Nars Deep Throat Blush has turned me into a potty mouth

After seeing so many gorgeous pics and review I finally succumbed and bought my first Nars blush. And let me tell you I'm so in love. I was tossing up between Nars Orgasm and Deep Throat. They were both pretty similar but the gold shimmer in the Orgasm was a bit chunkier and the one in Deep throat was finer. So I chose the Deep Throat (everytime I say deep throat I feel so dirty >.< ). It gives a nice flush with a golden sheen (I'm using is in my pic). Great for a instant glow. I think this is perfect for tanned skin, I find a lot of other blushes out there don't show up on my skin too well. It also has great staying power. The only downside is it is so expensive. In Australia this is sold for $62 (which is about $58 US dollars). I know you can buy them a little cheaper on ebay but the risk of buying a fake is huge (I will be making a future blog about this later). I think my next Nars blush might either be Taos or Torrid. I can't decide. But yeah I'm loving their blush.

Thanks Jahnice!!!

Hi everyone... I'm so happy a couple of days ago I received a cute package from the gorgeous jahnice, it was a prize that I won in her blog contest.

it was a mystery gift so I had no clue was I was gonna get. But I was definitely happy with what I received!!! I cant wait to try the nail colours been wanting to get a decent blue colour for a while now. 

I was suppose to post this earlier but I had to go to bathurst and camp out there because and boyfriend, his brother and his dad was involved in some car race thing. So I had no communication with the outside world. Plus I didn't know I was going until 30 minutes before hand so I couldn't even charge my phone. Straight after the camp trip I had an exam straight after so yeah was a busy week. But at least my boyfriend got a trophy.

It was also hard for my to post anything both my laptop and my boyfriends laptop is no longer working but lucky for me I set up my old computer in my apartment so I have something to use. For some reason everything electronic breaks around me.

I really need to start posting more.... I'm so lazy I know but I get distracted easily!!! I'm also thinking of doing tutorials tooo, hmmmmm.

Also I forgot to mention I finally got a new haircut, I haven't cut my hair since December. I'm not too fond of it. No matter where I get my hair cut and how I tell them to cut my hair I also end up with the Rachel-do (from Friends). Its like as soon as they hear the word layers automatically that's what they think I want.

And don't forget to visit Jahnice's Blog!!!!

Tutorial: Turn Your Digital Photos into Polaroids

This is kinda a random post. I kept seeing cute polaroid pics on facebook and always wondered how people made those, then yesterday after googling I finally found a program that makes it instantly. It even gives your photos a vintage photograph effect. And its free!!

I'll do a easy tutorial even though it's pretty easy you probably won't need my help!

Here is how to do it....

First download the program at then install and open the program

now open your folder containing photos you want to turn in to polaroids and drag the photo to the camera

now you can see your photo developing, you'll need to wait for it to develop if you like the image while its developing you can always hit right click and ask to have a sample now.

you will know when its finished when it has a little scribble thing  on the bottom right corner it will also make a noise

the pictures should be stored in you image folder if you can't find it then right click on the photo there should be a message like the screenshot below and if you click it, it should open up the folder where the polaroids are stored. By the way you can develop as much pics at the one time you don't need to wait for each one to finish.

And heres some quick pics I took today...

by the way I did change around my layout, I was playing around which I hate it though, I just wanted a little more room on my blog because the previous layout seemed like everything was too compressed. I'm waiting to get my computer set up so I can actually design something myself. Any hooo thanks for reading!!!!

Model Co Primer Kicks Ass

Model Co Face Base Skin Primer has been my favourite primer for many years. I try to make the most of it so I only use it on weekend and nights out and I use a cheaper primer (by face of australia) on the weekdays. I was close to running out but lucky for me I found out there was a sale at David Jones. Currently they are doing 30% off all primers and foundations. I'm using it in my current pic and it makes your skin look flawless and it fills in any lines or pores on your face.

At first it was a hassle for me to get this primer. The David Jones at Burwood was sold out and there wasn't a Model Co worker in there I asks the other David Jones staff but they didn't know if there was anymore left stored somewhere else. I went in another day and the staff were too busy talking amongst them selves to serve me so I just left. I ended up going to David Jones in the city. Lucky for me there was still plenty of primer left. The shop assistant was really nice too and she told me if I bought two primers not only do I get the discount but I also receive a free Model Co gift set. I couldn't resist.

The gift set looks really nice in the picture but the products are really small. It comes with a little bag, black eyeliner pencil, mirror, lipgloss, lipstick, mini primer and a mini bronzer. Still pretty good though.

If you live in Australia and love Model Co I reckon I should go to David Jones and check it out this weekend as I think the offer will expire by Monday.

And now to talk about the primer...

In Australia this costs $34 (without the discount) Which is decent for a high quality primer. You can buy it online at the Model Co website or you can buy this at department stores such as David Jones or Myer.

If you don't like silicon or cant wear silicon this is probably something to avoid because it's pretty much silicon in a bottle.

How I use it
Initially I found this hard to use and I hated it at first. If you don't use it correctly you'll find it peeling while you are applying foundation.

I normally apply moisture and eye gel before I apply my primer and leave it for about 10 mins to absorb.

Next I apply the primer... it says to use liberally but I only use about 2 small pea size drops and apply it all over my face with my finger tips.

I then leave it to dry for about 2 to 2 1/2 mins. The texture is very velvety and smooth. The primer is clear too, Im not a fan of primer with colour in it because it makes my face look super white in pics

After that I apply my foundation with a light hand and then I'm done!!

It makes your foundation last at least 10 hours (of course depending on the foundation). I'm not sure how long exactly it lasts as I don't usually leave my foundation on my face any longer than 10 hours. Make sure you was your face thoroughly afterwards though since this primer has alot of silicon in it.

Overall I love this primer.

Anyways hows everyones long weekend? Minds great I been lazy instead of studying. Also I been addicted to my bf's iphone. I was planning to make my own layout but yeah looks like that ain't happening!!
