The fastest growing beauty influencers in the world (how to be MORE like them)

2017 has been the year that social media has transformed the digital landscape, and if you’re a blogger it’s safe to say that you’ve already noticed these rapid changes first hand (let’s NOT mention algorithms and engagement drops). In today’s post, I’m going to be sharing some of the fastest growing beauty influencers of 2017 and how to be MORE like them in terms of social influencer success! Aimee Song     Probably one of the OG’s of Instagram, Aimee has been on social media for a while now, but 2017 has seen her sky rocket her millions of followers mass and proves just how much Instagram can do for an influencer. She has published her New York Times bestselling book, ‘Capture your style’ (a must read for Instagrammers or bloggers starting out) and also released an ‘Aimee Song’ Barbie doll! If there is anything more that I want to achieve out of life it’s to have my very own version of me as a Barbie Doll XD Influencer tips: Aimee loves to share her success …

With Christmas almost a month away, it’s time to start thinking about holiday gifts. This can be a super stressful time but if done correctly (lots of planning and good holiday cheer), can be lots of fun and rewarding at the same time. Personally, I love gifting people more than myself and there’s no better feeling than seeing someone’s face light up after a surprise present.

Friday Favourites | Riverdale, henna tattoos, Chris Brown…

Congratulations we’ve made it to the end of another successful week! This is the first Friday in weeks where I’m going to take it easy and spend the rest of my night at home  binge-watching and eating ice cream. Who else is with me? After my trip back from Singapore and an eventful final week of uni, I have a lot of products, shows, and other random bits that I wanted to share with you! With that being said, here are a list of my Friday Favourites. ____________________________________________________________________________________________ FAVOURITE TV SHOW: Riverdale Riverdale is one of those shows where initially you said to yourself you wouldn’t be interested but with all the hype surrounding it on social media (and it’s not hard to see why not) after watching just ONE episode you will quickly become obsessed with it like I did. Based on characters from Archie comics, the story begins when one of Riverdale’s wealthiest family members, Jason Blossom is murdered. From the surface, it seems like an innocent quiet neighbourhood but we are quickly …

June Faves

With the passing of June we have officially reached the middle of the year!! With all my monthly favourites I feel like I never fail to mention how quickly time passes… That being said, I’m still in awe at how far we’ve come and that we’re currently closer to Christmas than we are from the beginning of the year. June was a chilly month for us Australians which meant I spent quite some time watching and reading whilst I was snuggled indoors. Without further ado, here are my June favourites…! Beauty: Nyx butter gloss-Tiramisu Nyx Cosmetics is a brand that I cannot fault! Their makeup range is so affordable and the quality is amazing and very similar to brands that are on the high end side of beauty. This shade is a very light nude but gives your lips the perfect gloss and shimmer to suit any look and outfit. I also have to mention that it smells like vanilla cupcakes so you’ll have a hard time ensuring you don’t lick the product right off! …

7:25am thoughts

It’s a Friday morning and the sun is bursting through the cherry red curtains, prying its way eagerly with golden fingertips to reach the interiors of the house. Outside, the birds are chatting away as they soar overhead, ready to take on the day. It’s 7:25am and I am sitting here wide awake feeling somewhat inspired and motivated. Uni starts next month, my mum and brother return home from Shanghai China in 3 days and I just got a call from my manager at work asking if I could take the 10-6 shift. Life feels so normal, nothing significant is happening really yet at the same time, it feels so different. Every time i realise my age and that I’ve hit the big 20’s makes me jitter with nerves that I am already a fully fledged adult. yet, ironically I still feel like I’m 16 years old (minus the pimples, acne and devastating clothes style…i thought layering singlets were a cute summer choice…) Now as I type this, i look out my window to the …

My Bag & I

We’ve all heard of the saying ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’, but to me I think that our real inanimate best friends are our purses. We carry them everywhere we go, and in it they store everything from lifesaving essentials to bits and bobs that represent who we are as a person.
