Benefit - They're Real Mascara

30 July 2012
My name's Hailey and I'm a mascara addict. In fact I'm addicted to everything makeup but this particular post is about one of my recent mascara buys.

When I saw the packaging and the pretty display cases as I traveled across Europe the urge to buy something that I knew couldn't deliver what it was offering grew larger and larger until I caved. I bought Benefit's They're Real mascara along with a few other items and sated my hunger for new goodies.

Something Good, Something Bad and Some Giveaways To Make You Glad..

23 July 2012
So the good part is, I have internet access again so I can get back to blogging to keep me amused :)

The bad is we lost a much loved, feathered family member on Friday night.

Our beautiful Rainbow Lorikeet, Max, had been a bit off for about 24 hours and mum and I were terrified that he would die if we didn't get him to a vet so at about 11:30pm on Friday night we rushed down to the local emergency vet clinic. We were told he most likely had heavy metal poisoning from nibbling on something he shouldn't have, the vet recommended fluids and an antidote injection and then a trip to a bird specialist the following day to confirm the condition and follow up on his treatment. We agreed. She asked us to wait a few minutes while she gave him the shots and she would bring him right back so we could take him home. Well we sat in the consultation room for an hour and a half before she came back. She said he had suffered a seizure and died while she was treating another animal. He never even got the shots that he needed. I'm furious. I can't believe that she took him away and then just left him alone when he could have stayed in the room with us and at the very least not died alone. Also they still charged us the $200 for not helping our pet. I'm really disgusted by the way it was handled. He was only 11 months old.

So to my beautiful little boy who always made us cry with laughter when he would tell people to shut up, who loved to play with the cat and who had an amazing personality amongst a million other things, I will miss you, always love you and never forget you <3

Mixed Bag..

20 July 2012
Few updates.. First, I'm without Internet so I'm currently typing this up on my iPhone so please forgive me if there is something wrong with it, I don't have the control that I usually would if I were using my laptop.

Secondly, I started my diploma of specialist makeup services today and I love it already!! Only thing I worry about is organising work experience, please God grant the professional MUA's that I contact over the next 6 months the serenity to put up with my incessant nagging and pestering!

Last but not least I have a little haul to share with you all..
The photo is terrible, I know, so sorry!
Included are a new brush kit, glass head for creating bald caps, new iPhone (thank you insurance! Without it I would be lost), nail polish remover, shampoo and conditioner, a notebook for school and my makeup kit and essential tool kit.. Everything from primer to safety scissors. I hope to have access to the Internet by Monday. Fingers crossed.

DIY Magnetic Freedom Palette

15 July 2012
Magnetic freedom palettes.. I want them, I need them, I want them and I want them some more but I won't pay the price for them when I know perfectly well what the most popular ones are made of.. Paper, paper that can't be washed or sanitised without potentially damaging the product that you just forked out around $30 for not to mention the shipping price. No Thanks.

H&M in Australia?

12 July 2012
Oh dear Lord above please let it be!! What makes the rumor all that much sweeter for me is that they are supposedly scouting locations in Melbourne. You can read more about it here. Now everybody cross your fingers and toes and pray to the fashion gods that we will soon have H&M stores popping up all over Australia and they won't be ridiculously priced. Now all we need is Primark to shake their money maker over the deep blue and set up shop on our shores!
