Please welcome my very first beauty review on Spin Dizzy Fall!
I have recently been much more interested in make-up ( I must be growing up or something! God forbid!) and if you follow me on twitter you'll know I've been asking for make-up tips from fellow bloggers and followers.
Ever since I had my make-up done for the Market HQ campaign I've been wanting to try eyebrow make-up and shaping so this product was perfect for a review!

The product is Beauty Express for Brows and Eyes by Anastasia Beverly Hills (in brunette).
I've taken step-by-step photos of this awesome little kit which includes it's own steps so it's easier to get your brows perfect each time you do them.

Below: Before photo. My brows are naturally quite thin. Luckily there's a stencil for that!
Neat kit design
Includes wax for shaping, brow powder and shadow.
Applying the wax.
Choosing the correct stencil for my brow shape.
Filling the stencil. Gradually building colour and structure on the brow.
Finished and looking pretty pleased with myself!
After: End Result.

Check out this video about using the product.

I've been using this kit everyday now and no complaints!
I've found that by shaping and darkening the brow it can really sharpen your features and it's just what I've been missing.
You can see this kit and further details here :)




wearing: Silk blouse, Blazer, velvet mini, necklace, eel skin clutch are all vintage and heels from Rubi.

Not too long ago I attended the launch of Absolut Vodka MODE edition in Darlinghurst.
Not only were the cocktails completely amazing but so was the company! I was joined by fellow Mode edition bloggers Sara and Rachel plus had a few drinks with the lovely Hannah, Xiaohan (who was shooting the event for Vogue - See the snaps from the night here) and Yvan from facehunter.

It was great to see people I hadn't seen since fashion week plus meet with the lovely ladies from Absolut and Vogue who were behind the blogger collaborations. A big shout out to the lovely Jacqui for making us feel so welcome.



easy way out

wearing: Split dress by Somedays Lovin', boots by Soles, House of Harlow rose ring (all via Market HQ), Bag by Mimco, vintage belt, bracelets from bali and singapore, rings are vintage and from Indonesia.

I was always hesitant about fishtail skirts or split skirts but what I didn't know was that you feel like a freakin' dark princess or something when you're wearing them. I am now in love with this dress with double splits after walking around town with my skirt blowing in the breeze behind me. Along with the lace bodice and the neckline I predict this is going to be my go-to summer nights dress! Also already giving these boots and my new House of Harlow ring a work out this weekend.
These photos were taken before going out to dinner with friends on friday. (That day I got sunburnt at the beach. YES, I said the BEACH! Welcoming summer with open arms!)

Hope you've all had good weekends kittens!



Saturday Sangria

wearing: sweater and blouse are vintage, sequin shorts by Lola vs Harper, vintage celtic necklace, mimco handbag and case ring from Beginning Boutique.

On saturday I met up with a bunch of lovely sydney bloggers for lunch and a couple sneaky jugs of white wine sangria at The Winery in Surry Hills. In my company were Brooke from re:new, Lauren from YourOnlyBlackSwan, Jess from JessLovesFred, Thu from OriginalNumber, Joelyne from TheSydneyGirl and Aprilia from Aprilia Love. Saturday marked the beginning of sunny days in the lead up to summer and it was almost hot sitting in the sun with this wicked bunch.
Here are a few outfit detail photos and the token happy 'family shots'!

Also loving bright nails, this vintage celtic necklace my grandma gave me and my new case ring from Beginning Boutique.
