Today // Marvelips!


In the short span of two days I have become in love with Soap & Glory Marvelips, lip Crayon. The colour is so sweet and subtle, for an everyday look. 


Sorry about the image quality...the images were taken on my phone :(.

I'm Heading to London!



not my pic, I got it from Google 


You may or may not have seen me tweet about this before, but I am heading to London during the holidays! This will be my first time visiting London and I’m so excited!
The reason I’m going is because its school related, every two years my school allows a group of students from year ten to twelve to go on the Dramatic Arts Tour. I believe this tour will be beneficial for me as I am going onto Drama next year in year 12.
On the tour we will do numerous amounts of workshops, see so many plays and the bit I’m most excited about is the home stay we do in Stratford. We also have a couple free days where we can go off and explore which is when I and my friends will definitely be shopping!
When I get back I’m going to be posting so much…I can just see it now. J

I really can’t wait to tell you guys all about it when I get back!!!!!!!!

Well hello beautiful people, I hope you are having a lovely day or night where ever you are in the world. In Australia it’s coming up to summer! Which means 1. Fire season is coming upon us which is a negative but it’s also BEACH TIME!! WOOHOO GET EXCITED! I then though why not blog about what I take to the beach.

Now before you continue reading, I should warn you I am a HUGE hoarder when it comes to taking things in my bag because you never know what’s going to happen so you may as well be prepared.

 LETS BEGIN! 

1. My wallet
2. Phone 
3. Dove deodorant
4. Hair spray (because it’s that time of the year where you need to embrace your natural hair so lets contain it as much as possible)
5. A body spray/ perfume, the one I use is quite fruity/ floral sent 
6. Mints. I like the chewy kind 
7. Lip balm of some sort, I always go with one that has SPF in it but I need to buy a new one

9. Moisturizer
10. Towel 
11. Hair pins and ties

Lights! Camera! Action!!!!






One of the subjects I do is Fashion & Textiles and every year the school puts on a fashion parade; a night when people can come and view what the Senior School students have created during the year.  The garment I choose to put in from my years’ work was inspired by 90s grunge and 60s Op & pop art.  I was however inspired by the idea of a slinky…and…I still don’t know why….a slinky came to mind so I thought “HEY! Let’s put pleats across the legs so it has the same concept of a slinky”….it was so random…



Making the garment meant stressful late night, constant drives to Spotlight, and getting frustrated because you can’t find the right material.   Oh and let’s not forget the endless pricking of the finger and unpicking stiches.




Show time!

On Wednesday I was so nervous and stressed, lol who am I kidding the whole year was stressful when it came to fashion but I loved it.  At lunchtime we had to show case our work to students who came, to us it was like a rehearsal for later that night but it was still scary.  My hands were shaking when I tried to get the outfit on Em.  I was so scared of what people would think of it, if they thought it was really bad, but at the same time I didn’t really care because I was proud of what I put up; it was what I wanted it to be.  After the parade I was quite surprised by how many complements and hugs I got ….I just didn’t think people would like it because it wasn’t your everyday runway design, because I did want it to be something people could wear in reality.



On the night I was manic backstage.  People where everywhere, things where everywhere.  The school brought in makeup artist to do the models make up which was exciting.  I got her to do Em’s makeup with a brown toned eye shadow to open up her eyes, I didn’t want to go heavy on the eyes because heavy toned makeup doesn’t suit her, the clothes where really dark and the lips were already going to be a bold colour.  She gave her a dark red look for the lips that matched the colour of the top.  The rest of the makeup was just your everyday blush and bronzer plus the base of course.





"Celest take a snap for me" (it got boring back stage) :)




The night was great, after all us year 11’s got their models to showcase the outfit we then came out with them and I was so nervous when I saw everyone I practically ran off stage, but it was such an amazing feeling seeing everyone clapping and smiling my way.  I really cannot wait until I do it again next year; I even already have a rough idea of what I want to do.  Next year I want to put both my garments on show, not just one.

The natural cure to dark under eye circles + damaged hair!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin








Coconut oil what a beautiful thing it is, there are just no words to describe how much I love it. Why you might ask? Well because it is amazing at helping your skin and hair!

Skin: being oh so fortunate by having a Latina background I was gifted with the beautiful look of having dark under eye circles or also known as racoon eyes. How lucky am I! I have found a solution! Rub coconut oil on the area that is dark and I promise you they will fade over time.

Hair:  I use coconut oil as a hair treatment to hydrate and strengthen my hair. I do it once to twice a week and I noticed the difference straight away when I began using it.  These are the steps I take

Steps

1.      Cover hair in the oil, comb through
2.      Wrap hair in a hair cap or towel (if using a towel heat it up so the oil stays in its liquid form)
3.      Rest for at least an hour
4.      Rinse out with your normal shampoo and conditioner
Some people say you shouldn’t use shampoo while rinsing, I however haven’t found a difference when I do or don’t use it. Some other benefits of using it is clearing dandruff, strengthening hair allowing it to grow faster, softens and illuminates it within one use


You can buy coconut oil at any supermarket. I strongly recommend this treatment if you have curly hair because it makes your curls hold easily as well as reduce frizz.

Review // NYX Roll on Shimmer


I went and brought some NYX products and I brought something that’s so exciting!!!!!!

It’s called the “Roll on Shimmer” now I don’t know about you guys, but I have only just come across this product. Now can I just say it is so flipping cute and pretty!!!!





The point is you can put it anywhere on your face or body adding a shimmer. The range comes in so many colours for any event. The one I picked up is in the shade “Taupe” which is like a silver/gold shimmer and I’m using it to highlight my cheek bones. The solution is light on your skin and easy to blend, I also like how the shimmer is intense if you don’t blend it out yet so subtle when you do. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that it easily rubes off on other surfaces.


the one closer to my hand has not been blended out :)


I’ll defiantly keep you guys updated on what I think about it and how I’m using it via twitter

A Love for Benefit!



For my birthday my friend Lulu brought me a present and it was the Benefit “they’re real!” mascara and she knows I love mascara and have been wanting to purchase this particular mascara for so long so when I opened the present I was so excited and grateful.





The packaging is so sleek and simple I love it! The consistency of the mascara is the perfect combination as it is not too runny and yet not cloggy at all. It doesn’t stick your lashes together or smug under the eye after a few hours, which can I just say HALA LU YA!! It makes your eyelashes so black and easily lengthens and volumes with only a single coating.
She also got me the “they’re real! Push-up liner” that came in a packet with the mascara. I however have not yet tried it, but I have heard great things about it so I cannot wait. I’ll defiantly let you guys know how it is though.








The next thing is the “Hello Flawless” powder foundation which I purchased, I’ve also been dying to get this… it’s really light on the face and gives a great coverage without it looking cakey. The shade I got was “nutmeg” which I was quite shocked by as it is the darkest in there range and I’m not normally matched to be that dark….

17 in counting



So on the 19th of September it was my 17th birthday. I had amazing day catching up with friends, seeing my family and having a surprise picnic while in the process of adding numerous layers of fat on from how much junk food I ate, but that’s okay I’ll just have to work it off tomorrow haha or not.

It got me thinking though, not the food I mean because let’s be honest if you know me you’ll know that I don’t do diets.




I am however referring to what people tend to say and ask for example; “do you feel older now that you’re 17?” ….lol no I feel the same, sadly it’s not like in fiction novels where something incredible and absolutely mind-blowing happens when you turn a specific age. Believe me on that one, I learnt it the hard way when I didn’t get my letter from Hogwarts when I turned 12 or have Hagrid breaking my front door down.

he means Celest!! 


I don’t want to be a hypercritic in this matter so I will admit I have asked this question to people before but I really just don’t know why. Now when I think about it however I feel as if for people it might be a sign of hope that things will get better at a big turning point in life and your age I guess is a big turning point...

Another thing I constantly got asked; “Omg only one more year till you’re 18, aren’t you so excited?”…

”no. why are you?”

“yes being 18 would be awesome!”

“why?”

“…I don’t know…”

Personally getting older, not going to lie scares the fudge out of me. The age just holds to many responsibilities like Uni, income, the whole thing about “going in to the really world”. News flash universe I would rather be back in the playground not stressing about Uni or a job. I just want to cherish every moment now because I’m never going to be the age of 5 or 10 or 16 again, I’ll only ever be 25, 30,36 ect. And that sucks but that’s life.
It just amazes me how some people will hope for sleep, hope for Fridays, hope for the weekend and hope for the holidays but will never hope nor live for the moment they’re in.

A Little Bit About Me :D





My name is Celest, I’m 17 years old and Australia is my home. I have always loved fashion and always had a thought at the back of my head telling me I should pursue it as a career. My grandma is a dressmaker and she has a little studio at the back of her house. I remember when I was really young I would get bored being in there with her, so one day I grabbed pieces of material and pinned them on the manikin, designing dresses, tops, pants etc. After that it just stuck with me.


Now to be honest I never really had an interest in makeup, I never saw the point in it. That however changed very very and I mean very quickly as soon as I meet one of my now very close friend. She was and is obsessed with makeup and now I am too. I really have no clue how she infected me with  it but it is a pain in my ass….and yet strangely addictive and satisfying and this obsession began to happen around 2 years ago and now I swear it takes up a good 40% of my conversations.


I’ve started this blog because it honestly looked fun when I looked at other bloggers posting things and I wanted to do that too. I like writing so I figured why not do it about things I’m really passionate about.

Review // NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker






Hey guys, so after making this blog ages ago I finally built up the courage to write something and I hope that by the time I finish typing I’ll even post it haha :P 



For my first review the product I want to talk about I’m just in love with, I’m obsessed with eye makeup and I just think this is the best eyeliner ever. It’s called “Super Skinny Eye Marker” by NYX. It has a felt tip end and it is beautiful, it’s so precise and easy to apply. The consistency is smooth and it is quite matte which is something I love about it, as with some liquid eyeliner with sheen through it I just find it can sometimes be too over powering in the eye look. Once it has dried on it lasts for such a long time and doesn't crack like most liquid liners do. I would defiantly recommend it for people beginning to learn how to apply eyeliner as it is just so simple and easy to use and it is amazing to use with creating a cat-eye.


I brought mine at Target for $9.50 AU
Or you can order it from the website that I will list down below.



If you read this then thank you so much. It would mean so much to me if you could tell me what you thought.
