Winter Skin Care Routine

Friday, 14 July 2017

It is the middle of winter in Australia right now and it's very coooollllldddddd! Getting out of bed in the mornings has been such a huge struggle. I'm also currently on uni holidays and have been using this time to catch-up on sleep and meeting up with my friends who I haven't seen in a while. I also had my uni results come out not too long ago and that has been a really anxious wait. I wasn't happy with how I progressed academically last semester. It was a difficult semester but I'm so happy that I made it through and now am ready to tackle another semester. Anyways, all that aside, today I want to share with you my skincare routine for this chilly season!

Tartelette in Bloom!

Saturday, 24 June 2017

Long time no post! I've been eaten up by my end of semester exams, quite literally ahahaha. I have just been studying non-stop for the past few weeks. This semester has been the toughest for me so far but I am glad to have made it through and to just not have to study for a while. Studying and the whole aspect of uni itself does mentally drain you but there is no denying that it is an invaluable experience. Anyways, I decided to buy the tarte tartelette in bloom eyeshadow palette as a little treat to myself for making it through this semester. 

Face Masks Getting Me Through The Colder Weather

Friday, 2 June 2017

Is it June already!? It's winter in Melbourne already! The past few months have been getting colder and colder and that means my skin is getting drier as I crank up the heater to stay warm. It doesn't help that it's exam season, so my skin has also been stressed out because of that. To help combat that, I have been using quite a few face masks and these are the ones I'm currently loving. 

Btw, I've also recently made an Instagram! Follow meeee @ofpurityandsimplicity

L'Oreal Pure Clay Mask

Saturday, 20 May 2017

The weather in Australia is much cooler now and that means my already dry skin is preparing to up itself in dryness. I was super excited to see L'Oreal launch its range of face masks and already I am a tiny bit late into picking one up, I have managed to get my hands one! There are three varieties in this range - the Purifying & Mattifying Mask, Detoxifying & Brightening Mask and Exfoliating & Smoothing Mask. Of course, I picked up the exfoliating one because dryness is really playing up :( 

Empties #2

Monday, 8 May 2017

I cannot believe how quickly the year is going by! It's already May, whutttt? How are we in May already? I honestly am baffled by just how fast this year is going by! I've been pretty busy in recent weeks. Uni work and assignments are definitely piling on and I've recently had a change in managers so it was all about adjusting to this work change. 

The cooler months are definitely upon us as well and I fell sick as well, which wasn't very pleasant. :( But I'm all better now, which is a good thing. (: I've finished up quite a few products a while ago but haven't quite got around to writing up a post about it, but here it is! 

Getting My Nails Done for the First Time!

Friday, 28 April 2017

Nails! I love getting my nails painted! I got my nails professional done for the very first time two weeks ago for my ball and just wanted to share about my experience! Normally I would paint my nails myself but I didn't want to have to worry about the chipping and it will be nice to have a long-lasting manicure, so I decided to get my nails glammed up at the salon! (Please ignore my dry fingers :'( I have really dry skin on my hands :'( )

GRWM || Ball Time!

Friday, 14 April 2017

Time has been flying by like hotcakes! These past few weeks have been absolutely hectic for me - I have just been swamped with uni assessments, lectures, work and everything else that comes in between! You don't really think about it but uni does really hit you week after week, especially when there are other commitments also on your plate. Before you know, the uni week has already finished and the next one is already here and assessment due dates/test dates are looming closer than you originally thought. 

Thankfully, the Easter break is here! Yayyy! Time to make sure that I am up-to-date with my studies and to consolidate what I have learnt so far. Kicking off the Easter break, I got to a faculty ball last night! My friends and I rented an Airbnb apartment in the city to get ready. Alright, let's do a post GRWM :)

HAUL || Recent Purchases

Sunday, 26 March 2017

It's been quite a while hasn't it? Uni been back at full swing and in the midst of juggling that along with everything that I have on my plate, it has come at the sacrifice of sleep. Though, at the same time, it is a good thing. Life is a lot more bustling and I do miss my friends and the uni environment! It just means life is that little bit more stressful with assignments and other commitments lined up. 

My make-up routine has been pretty the same every day but I did make some new purchases recently. Let's see what I've purchased!

HAUL || Back to Uni!

Monday, 27 February 2017

Time really is flying! It's uni time again! Many started today and technically I should have been going to uni today as well but I only had a lecture on so I skipped that, ahaha, but don't worry, I'll be watching that online. I don't want to go back just yet but at the same time I am actually kind of keen to get back into this study business! I've had a long break from uni so it is about time that I actually dive back into the books. Having been at uni for the past two years, I have definitely found how I best study and I'm going to stick by this and finish uni with some good grades. I've purchased a few things for uni so let's get into it! 

ZOEVA Vegan Face Set

Tuesday, 14 February 2017

The ZOEVA brand has making their name out as inexpensive, quality make-up brushes for the past few years and it has been growing strong with heaps of positive reviews for their products. I have been meaning to get some new make-up brushes for a while now and now I finally have one of their sets in my hands. I got the Vegan Face set in silver finish, which just looks stunning. It comes with a small clutch and most also comes with a brush guard. I needed a few more face brushes so I decided to go for this set which seems to cover a bit of everything. 

Monthly Favourites || January 2017

Wednesday, 1 February 2017

Time is literally flying! I can't believe we're in February already! I honestly have no idea what I have done with my time. I spent most of January working if not going to eat, which has taken a big dint in my wallet. But I'm telling myself that it's all good because food is satisfying, ehehe. This month was pretty dull make-up wise and but I did find myself gravitating towards a few items this month. 


Tuesday, 17 January 2017

I got quite a few make-up items throughout the end of 2016 because of sales and the Christmas season. I was working heaps throughout the Christmas peak so I ended up doing most of my shopping online. Most of the Black Friday sales from the US were present here in Australia but was limited exclusively online. Soon after the Black Friday sales was the Boxing Day sale and End-of-Year Stocktake sale, which is actually still available on some sites! So it was sale after sale after sale, and this meant some shopping had to be done. I didn't get too many make-up items but did manage to add a few nice ones to my collection.

How to Manage Your Finances

Sunday, 8 January 2017

There is no denial that 2017 is running at full speed already. We are already just over a week into this new year but the responsibilities are already piling up. One of the top priorities on everyone's list should be the financial responsibility. When you're making an income yourself, the income tends to take on an opposite effect and flow out of your bank account as expenses. I've come to realise the importance of financial planning and how it drastically change the way you manage your finances. 

Everyone has a different way of managing there finances and there is definitely no wrong way of managing your own finances. However, there are ways to be smart about it and here are some financial planning measures which I have taken to help me better manage my finances.
