This is an eye look and tutorial using only the Chi Chi Smokeys 2 palette. This is going to be a smokey and sharp look in ten easy to follow steps.
I have recently acquired some more makeup and so I thought I would do a makeup favourites post.
They're Real Benefit Mascara:
No clumps, stays on until your dying day, it looks natural, it darkens your eyelashes, curls and enhances your lashes. The mini is only $20 as well.
Makeup Revolution Chocolate Vice Palette
Makeup Revolution often copies big brands like Too Faced, Kylie Cosmetic, Anastasia and others. The chocolate palettes are copies of the Too Faced palettes, however they are very inexpensive, fairly pigmented and it has the most gorgeous packaging!!
Mario Badescu Facial Spray
This is a multi-purpose spray, and no, I'm not talking about surface cleaning, toilet cleaning and window cleaning, I'm talking about priming, setting and refreshing. AND PEOPLE IT'S ONLY $9!!! Yes cheap and brilliant, what more could you want? It also smells like fresh rosewater.
I know it is a very sad time, going back to school, but I'm happy to see my friends and escape my house for 7 hours of the day. Also back to school shopping is one of the best types of shopping, but sometimes stationary can be extremely overpriced *cough* Kikki.K *cough* *cough*, so here are some places to get cute and trendy items for inexpensive prices.
Now us Aussies know the glory of Kmart, the trendy home decor, stationary and bags. In the stationary section there are marble and rose gold staplers, pens and stationary accessories along with multiple folders and binders. If you already have enough stationary and they just needs a bit of glamming up go to Kmart at buy vinyl contact, it easy to remove from stationary and it is easy to apply and it stays on pretty well, you can also buy washi tape to add a bit of pop of colour to your school or work supplies.
Typo also has some pretty trendy bits and pieces, even though it isn't that popular now. If you go in now you will find barely any people in there and loads of cool products, including beanies, pillows and drink bottles like 'Swell.'
I often order a berry smoothie, mango smoothie or a watermelon juice, and they are delicious!!! The Boat House has delicious cakes that look so cute and tasty, the brownies they have a moist and have crunchy nuts, it can't be that bad if I just live off their food for my whole life, can it?
AHHHHH!!! I know change is scary, but hopefully this is good change. I am going to be posting weekly every Monday night!! This is so you can go on my blog and are sure to be able to read a new post every week. People often ask me to post more frequently, but since I have a life of my own it has been difficult. But I am now going to write my posts when I have time and then post them Monday night.

Remember to keep on Squidging- ZaZa
A couple of weeks ago I bought some (*cough* a lot *cough*) makeup with my friends, I love and use all of the products I bought. We spent over $150 (HALP). *DISCLAIMER* I love makeup not to cover up blemishes but to show off art and talent. The brands that we bought from were Colourpop, Jeffree Star and Makeup Revolution.
This is not in order of what I love most to least.
1. Ed Sheeran: Castle On The Hill
This is my favourite song because I love Ed Sheeran's voice, and songs with feeling and instruments are my favourites, it is also very catchy (I'm sorry friends and family, you are going to have put up with my screeching) and I love jamming to this -cue head bopping- and imagining myself singing. I also love this song because⤵⤵⤵⤵ YOU KNEW IT WAS COMING
2. Melanie Martinez: Cake
I love Melanie Martinez, but I especially love her voice and the lyrics in this song... and I LOVE the piano-ish sound. I would love to sing to this song, but I can't, I've tried, all hope is lost. I love the background music, and I love the verses more than the chorus, which is very odd for most songs, but I'm happy with the change. I also am a huge Stampy fan, so a song about cake is glorious in my mind.
3. Charlie xcx: After The After Party Ft. Lil Yachty
I have only heard this song recently, and I am already in love. There is also an acoustic version, I love the piano, it's a lot more calming and depressing than the original, but it is still a great version. It's a song that you would dance to with a large group of friends. and the chorus IS LIT AF!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMFG IT IS PUMPED AS HEAVEN AND HELL (God and Satan will both jam to this). However, I don't like the rapping bit, but I think the song should still have it, it is one off the very few songs that I don't skip the rapping part. LOVE THIS SONG, one of the best squad jamming songs.
4. Ed Sheeran: Lego House
An all time favourite (mainly cause of Rupert Grint in the music video). Unfortunately I can not sing this song either, oh fudge it! 🎶I'LL DO IT ALL FOR YOU IN TIME!!!🎶 I love the instruments and the emotion in this song, and now I want to learn the guitar. And Ed's voice 😍😍😍😍. ALL TIME CLASSIC
5. Ed Sheeran: The A Team
Okay, now I REALLY want to learn how to play the guitar. This is one of his older songs, but you know what they say? 'An oldie but a goodie' Love the lyrics!!! It's one of those songs you want to play on the stairs and cry, pulling your hair out of your face and everyone realising you were always beautiful (The scientific definition😂). Man, now I need to find a pretty wig, a guitar, learn how to play the guitar and find some stairs, maybe grab some glasses too.
6. Lady Gaga: Paparazzi
I only like the chorus, but when the chorus comes, I'm like "YASSSS MY SONG!!!" You have to stop to dance and sing. I usually just skip to the chorus, because it is life. The verses are also really good, but compared to the chorus they seem weak. You have to listen to it just to hear the chorus.
7. The Chainsmokers: Don't Let Me Down Ft. Daya
This song makes me want to work out. I don't go crazy over the song or lyrics, but it makes me feel motivated AF. You can also shoulder shrug and do krumping to this song, I'm very happy about that. I love other Chainsmokers' songs but they didn't make the list, I love Roses a lot, but it just made me feel Tumblr (I dunno what to call it), and also it didn't make me feel much, same with Closer, along with the fact that I have heard a one too many times.
8. Little Mix: Shout Out To My Ex
THE SQUAD SWAG SONG. You can imagine you and your friends dancing like no tomorrow and kicking some booty. I love how pumped up it is! The perfect dancing song, it is constantly jam worthy. I can sing to this because it is pretty much only yelling (finally something I can sing to, sort of). SQUAD SONG FOR DAYS
9. Melanie Martinez: Play Date
Tumblr swag. Like " You talking me, ha! HELL NO!" You will want to sing this to the meanie beanies. It has a strong chorus a "SWAG" chorus as I put it. It is just the best song to sing to haters. This song will make you love Melanie Martinez and all of her songs.
10. Taylor Swift: Welcome To New York
It is a feel good pumping song, you will want to pump your arms with your squad for the whole night. It also makes you want to run and dance like a weirdo. I just love this song so much. You can't explain the feeling you get when listening to this song.
11. Justin Timberlake: Can't Stop The Feeling
This song was originally from the movie 'Trolls' but it doesn't stop it from being an amazing song. I have watched Trolls and it was REALLY good! The title explains it all, and the lyrics match the mood perfectly. I am not going to get to sleep after hearing this song. "SO JUST DANCE, DANCE, DANCE!!!" OH YEAH PUMPED!!! I love this song. And just when you think it's finished it comes back, like David Bowie (who has BOMB songs).
12. La Roux: Bulletproof
I'm usually not into songs with a lot of electronic sounds, however this is an exception. This is definitely a jamming song, squad swag song and a tumblr swag song. I am obsessed with the chorus! This is the only song from La Roux that I like however. But definitely a song that needs to be appreciated more.
13. Billy Joel: Piano Man
I love this song and love playing it on the piano. The chorus is LIT as the top of a Christmas tree. Even though it is an old song, everyone who listens to it will like it, and if they don't check out song no.9. My uncle and I both love the song, my parents love it, my friends put up with it and everyone else thinks I'm crazy, they're going to listen to song no.9 instead. Love this song.
14. Olly Murs: Dance With Me Tonight
Sounds a lot like "Dear Future Husband" by Meghan Trainer, but I prefer this much more. His UK accent 😍😍😍!!! Great song to dance to with friends. Yep I'm definitely not sleeping tonight. I just can't stop writing, it makes me feel so happy and AHHHHHHH. YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS!! AHHHHHH!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!
I only called it 'MISSION 1' because I wanted to be a super spy. Anywayyyyyy, I went Christmas shopping with some of my friends so we could buy presents for people (and for ourselves). I just had to make a post about it. 'Hacks and Tips for Gift Buying' mission, you are a go!
Hack 1. Don't know what to gift to get someone? Get them a gift card or money, trust me, it's the best thing to do, because then they can get what they want for themselves
Hack 2. Go around and look for the cheapest one, I know this may sound a bit rude to do to someone, but you've got to buy gifts for lots of other people as well.
Hack 3. Go shopping with friends so they can help you choose what to get for a certain person, they may be friends with them and know what to buy. And shopping with friends is fun!
Hack 4. RE GIFTING!!! I know this is rude, but you never used it, you don't want it and it's better for the environment. THINK OF THE POOR PENGUINS!!!
Hack 5. Get cute little gifts like bath bombs or key rings for someone who doesn't know what they want, they will use these and you aren't spending an enormous amount of money on it when they don't actually like the gift.
Hack 6. If you are buying a gift for a large family with different age groups you don't really want to buy individual things, it adds up to a huge price and they might not even like it. I suggest buying a big pack of sweets e.g. Nutella pot or caramel popcorn jar. You could also get a small family (3 people) a fun land pass or tickets, anyone of all ages will love that.
Hack 7. Create your own gift, especially if it is for your parents or grand parents or any other older relatives, because they are required to love anything that you make for them. It saves a lot of money and it is much more thoughtful than buying something.
Hack 8. Don't spend money on wrapping paper. Use wrapping paper from previous gifts that you've received. Use newspaper, dip it in tea to make it look vintage. You can also buy a big roll of wrapping paper and use it for every present, they will also clearly know who it's from.
Hack 9. Give small inexpensive gifts in a jar for that friend who wants lots of little things. You can put in chemist store lipstick, small bracelets or charms and maybe some pictures of you two together to give them something to remember and smile about.
Hope these hacks helped!! LUV YA!!
