Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

I made some cupcakes for my coworkers (my icing skills are really bad). I'm not doing anything Halloweeny tonight, instead having a pre-birthday dinner with my family because they're going on holiday and will miss my actual birthday.

There is an alternative Halloween club night tomorrow night, which I'll be DJing at. I'm dressing as a witch!
What are you up to on Halloween?

Wednesday Wants

(It's actually Thursday in Australia)

My friend brought to my attention this new handbag by Banned. It also comes in purple.
I love the spiderwebs and bats. I'm not a handbag type of person, because I think I'm too butch for them. This handbag is cute, I wish I knew if it was big or small.

L'Oreal Charming Cockatoo's Pout Lipstick Review

I picked up this L'Oreal lipstick for $7.50 at a chemist at work.

The colour is Charming Cockatoo's Pout. I believe it's part of the Australian version of Project Runway (I don't watch t.v. so I have no idea)

I like the stamp on the lipstick.

The colour is a plum red, with pink undertones

I think the colour would work better over lipliner, as the application is a bit patchy and thin. I really like the colour, I'm a big fan of plum red.

Overall, I'm not sure if I'll wear this much due to the application, but it was cheap and I can add it to my lipstick collection.

When in doubt, dress up and go out.

Yesterday, my sister and I went shopping. I wanted to look at the Halloween things, and get an idea of what I need to buy for my future birthday party.
I wasn't feeling 100% but put on some makeup and nice clothes to try and make myself feel better.

My hair is super green at the moment because I dyed it last Wednesday.
Shirt: City Chic
Skirt: Evans
Leggings: Target
Lipstick: Lime Crime
Boots: Justin Roper Cowboy Boots
Prescription Sunglasses: Zenni Optical

I found some great Halloween things, I'm going back when I get paid next.
I have so many Halloween cupcake cases, I'm going to have to make a bunch of cupcakes this year. I'm going to use the finger puppets in loot bags for my b-day. I love how expressive and cute they are!

Here's My Face!

I went to a BBQ on the weekend. I didn't get a photo of my outfit, but I did get a few of my face. Enjoy :)

I'm wearing my green Inglot eyebrows and Revlon Really Red matte lipstick.
You can see my hair needs to be re-dyed soon, it's going a bit blue!

Not Dead (Yet)

There's so much going on in my life, yet also nothing at all.
I've been to work everyday for the last three weeks (apart from one day last week). This is a huge achievement for me, my mental health has not been good for over a year. Each day has been really good so far, and I'm able to easily get up in the morning. I'm not entirely focused at work yet, but I'm working on it.
My mood is still pretty low, but I'm coping really well at the moment.

I've nearly finished my university studies for the semester. I'm finding my last assignment to be difficult, and it's due next Wednesday. I hope I can get the motivation to finish it by Sunday. It's really draining working full time, while studying part time.
It's not going to let up soon, because I'm taking a unit in the trimester (over christmas) so that I can finish my course by 2016.

Money has been tough for me, with various loans. I have to start paying back my university fees because I'm earning over a certain amount. But looking on the bright side, if I pay them now then I don't have to pay them later!

I've had good news about a possible part-time job opening over the summer. This will be a huge relief for my budget. I don't know how I'm going to juggle work/uni/part-time job at the same time. I don't know 100% if I have the position yet, so I won't jinx it by saying too much.

I've planned my 25th birthday party in November and I'm really excited about it! I'm having a picnic in a park near my house, and I've invited the people who I care about most. I'm going to make loot bags! My bday is November 10th in case you're wondering :)

Halloween is soon, and I get to DJ at Incursion. I'm going to dress as a witch. I love Halloween, which I'm sure is the same for most of you. I'm going to go looking around for Halloween stuff soon, maybe I can use some of the things for my birthday.

I'm excited about the end of the year, even though I have to work xmas eve at the Library. There are lots of things I'm excited about in the future, although my everyday life is really boring. I've not been out for ages because of my money situation and I don't have anybody to go with. I've been watching a lot of Mystery Science Theatre 3000, and I want to play a video game or two before my next semester starts.

Next year, me and my sister are going to Phuket, in Thailand! She was originally going with her boyfriend, but they broke up a while ago. I offered to go with her. I've never been to an asian country before, I'm very excited about riding elephants. I'll survive the sun and humid weather, and I know I'll have a great time with my sister. I have to budget hard in order to be able to afford this.

So that's a little about what's been happening with my life. I hope all my readers are doing well.
