 Happy Thursday!

I wasn't originally going to post this post as I thought I had left it too long since my trip but today I was going through my photos and thought there a few too many pretty shots not to share, so here are a couple of happy snaps from my trip to Bali.

Back in February I visited Bali Indonesia for 11 days. This is my 3rd time going to Bali and I've fallen more and more in love every single time I've been. If you're thinking about ever visiting Bali, I highly recommend.
We stayed in Kuta which is the main area in Bali for tourists and I would definitely say the busiest. The hussle and bussle, the taxi drivers honking at you every two seconds, the cheap food and drinks (cheap everything really), the markets, wonderful cocktails, beach bars, corn on the cobs, sunsets and the wonderful different characters you meet all make Bali the wonderful place it is.
In saying all of this you do need to be wary and careful when you go, of your belongings, keep your drinks close and try not to get Bali belly and I guarantee you you'll love Bali just as much as I do.

Next time I go to Bali I would love to stay a little bit further away from all the hussle and bussle and stay somewhere a little quieter. We spent a day trip driving down to the rice fields in Ubud. I have seen photo's of them online and they certainly did not disappoint. Something a photo just can't quite capture it the way your eyes can. Though the photos I did manage to get did come out beautiful.
We visited 2 temples whilst we we're in Bali the main big one being the Uluwatu Temple, this is another thing I had heard lots about and the day we wen't we almost got swept away by the wind but none the less it was incredible. There are monkeys everywhere though so hold onto your things!

On our second last day it was a planned lazy day. I decided to catch a taxi and visit the Jodie O'Shea Orphanage here in Denpasar, Bali. I was so incredibly nervous as I was leaving my friends for the day and going on my own. The amount of times in my head I was like 'maybe I won't go'  but in the end I bit my nerves and went and I am so happy I did. I met the most beautiful children, volunteers, workers and even a beautiful couple that had moved to Bali for a year and visited the orphanage a few times a week. These children had so much love to give. Shows that in life all you need is love.
I'm so grateful I got the opportunity to meet these children and they certainly touched me more than I could've ever touched them, so the biggest thank you goes out to them.

Current Favourites

Technically a lot of these things are my 'May Favourites' but I thought I jumped on the bandwagon a little early to title it that as we're only at the 22nd so here are some of my current favourite things.
With it being my birthday at the start of this month I was lucky enough to be spoilt with a few new goodies and it's safe to say I've fallen in love with so many of them.

Firstly the Meet Matt(e) Nude palette by the Balm.
I purchased myself this about a month and a half ago as I came across it in Target when the Balm had 30% off and how can you say no to 30% off? Recently I have been enjoying wearing simple eye looks with one or two shades on the eyes and lashes and this palette has every colour I would need for that. With all 9 shadows being matte it is a very practical palette with a lot of blending and transition shades (not to mention all the shades are extremely pigmented). I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a staple matte shadow palette.

Becca Highlighter in Opal.
This is a product that everyone and their neighbour has tried and I've never had my hands on. My lovely friend Brooke gifted me this for my birthday and I was so excited when I opened it. It's something I've wanted to try forever as here in the blogging world and on YouTube I've heard nothing but wonderful things and it definitely doesn't disappoint. It's so creamy and blends into the skin like a dream. What I love about this highlighter is the way you can wear it lightly to make it look subtle or pack it on to shine so bright you can see it across the street.

The Body Shop Strawberry Gel-Lotion.
As we're coming into the colder months here in Australia my skin is definitely starting to get more dry and because on a usual week I'll fake tan moisturising is essential to making it last and not go flaky. I got this lotion in a set for my birthday and the smell is divine. Body Shop never disappoints with the scents of their products. As soon as this mini bottle runs out I'll definitely be purchasing the bigger size.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette.
To me any Too Faced eye shadow palette I have used has never disappointed. From the pigmentation to the colour range and the best part being the smell of some of their palettes. If you ever get the chance make sure you go into your nearest Sephora or Mecca and just smell this palette and I'm sure it'll win you over. I was such a fan of the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette that when I saw this one was releasing I had to purchase it the minute it came out and I'm so glad I did. Next on the wishlist is the Semi Sweet Palette and if it's even half as good as this or the Chocolate Bar I will be very happy.

My current obsession and has been for a very long time now are flowers. I have become the type of person that always wants fresh flowers in my room. I feel they bring any room to life. I'm actually considering based off my love for flowers doing a floristry course and making up bouquets for my family and friends. My little dream would be to have a Saturday or Sunday market stall selling extremely pretty bouquets of flowers.

Cup O'Coffee Lush Face and Body Mask.
This is probably my favourite item out of my current favourites. I received a beautiful box for my birthday with lots of goodies and this was in there and since then it has become my favourite thing. I'm yet to use it as a body mask but when I have used it on my face it's done wonders. After a big weekend I find using this calms my skin completely down from all the makeup I've worn. My skin feels so lovely and soft after using it and I felt as if it calmed down any blemishes I had on my skin.
It's quite a big tub so I can't see myself finishing it any time soon but as soon as it finishes I will definitely be purchasing another one.

Frank Body Coffee Lip Scrub.
I had never before this tried any products from Frank Body but have always heard people say such wonderful things about their body scrub. I received the coffee lip scrub for my birthday earlier this month and with it coming into the colder months and my lips being dryer it has been a lifesaver. I have tried one other lip scrub before and it doesn't compare to how lovely this one is. It has the nicest coffee smell and it isn't too chunky or harsh on my lips. Will definitely be my best friend over the Winter months. I also received the Frank Body lip balm and I definitely recommend it with this scrub.

Earrings are my current obsession. Accessorising is something I definitely want to do more as I can sometimes be a bit of a plain Jane when it comes to it. Recently I have fallen in love with earrings, anything dangly with tassels or a boho vibe I am all over. These gold hoops with tassels are some of my new favourites, I feel a good pair of earrings can make any outfit complete.
I also thought I would add in the matching necklace as I have been wearing this quite often as well. I find it's a good simple piece that can bring a certain something to any plain outfit without it being too much.

Mac Fix Plus.
Now this is a product that I probably couldn't live without. I use fix plus at so many stages during my makeup application, it sets everything in place whilst also giving moisture to any excess powder. I find it great to enhance any shadows or highlighter and just can all over spray to give your skin a little bit of extra moisture. It's a big winner in my eyes.

Last but certainly not least candles. I am such a sucker for a good candle. I believe I currently have 4 displaying in my bedroom. Coming into winter I feel as if my candle obsession might fall hand in hand with my flower obsession. This cute little one was a gift for my birthday and the rose gold on the outside just makes this candle a beautiful addition to my dresser. I believe it's from Cotton On.

I would love to hear if there's anything new you've been loving! I love finding new things based on other peoples recommendations.
I hope you have a wonderful week, happy Monday!

Lots of Love,

Wine Tour Sundays

Hello! and happy May!

My personal favourite month of the year. As of the 2nd of May I'm now no longer 21 and have officially joined the 22's club. Exciting but sad because doesn't everyone want to be 21 forever?

This previous weekend just gone I celebrated my two friends birthdays on a wine tour. Wine tours always call for a wonderful day but an even better day when the sun is shining. Especially for this time of the year where it's usually starting to get a little gloomy!
I had purchased this dress and didn't think I was going to get a chance to wear it before it started to get colder but the weather definitely turned it on for us on Sunday and it was like a Summers day in the Swan Valley!

There's something about flowing maxi dresses that are so feminine and flattering on everyone and what better day to wear one than on a Sunday wine tour. This dress I actually purchased on sale! for $20 from $90! At first I tossed up buying it as I tend to buy too many clothes recently that I don't ever end up wearing (please tell me I'm not the only one) but for $20 I thought how could I not.
I'm a big fan of anything that has an off the shoulder style as I feel it really flatters a lot of people.

The sandals I am wearing are some of my favourite shoes that I picked up from a market stall in Bali for a really small price and I've worn them a lot and the quality is amazing! The tie up detailing has been one of my favourites over the Summer. I feel it adds a really lovely touch to what could be a simple outfit. The pairing of brown shoes and a brown bag have also been one of my favourite go to colours recently. My bag was definitely a win as I believe I got it from Primark for £3 back in 2015.
My sunnies are Ray-Ban and an investment I'm definitely glad I made as I wear them with nearly everything and I feel they're such a flattering style.

My beautiful lil sissy.

I hope your weekends we're wonderful and your week is even better.

Lots of Love,
