I am so thrilled I discovered Meeka as they provide beautiful organic products that make the bathing routine a truly indulgent experience that cares for the earth, body and mind. All of their products are organic as they get their inspiration from the earth. Their business is operated in Melbourne Australia.

At first I was very hesitant to try this organic deodorant as I have never heard or seen a deodorant in paste form before. However after trailing this product for a while now I absolutely love it and cannot stop using it. It is a thick texture that lathers on your skin so gently. It smells amazing and works wonders.

Bella Bronze Tan Review

Bella Bronze Tan Review
Bella bronze tan products

After trying the Bella bronze tan it is definitely in my top two favourite tans! I am really impressed with the way it turned out. The colour I used was the violet dark choc bronze mouse. I applied one coat of this tan and left it on for 4 hours. After washing my tan off I had a nice bronze glow which was exactly what I wanted. This tan is a perfect natural colour definitely ideal  for winter.

This Bella bronze tan is tailored to suit all skin types. If your wanting to achieve a light tan wash off after  1 – 2 hours, for a medium tan 3-4 hours and for darker results 4+ hours. When sleeping with the tan overnight 1 coat is usually all that is needed.

Pre tan preparation 

  •  wax at least 24 hours prior to tanning for better results
  • shave and exfoliate at least 6 – 24 hours prior to applying tan for better results
  • shower directly before applying the tan to remove any beauty products or acidity from the skin.
  • Your skin must be free from makeup, moisturisers and other products

Post tan care

  • For the first shower gently rinse of your tan with warm water, gently brushing over your body to ensure the bronzer is removed evenly.
  • Pat dry your body with a towel after each shower
  • Do not moisturise your body until after your second shower to allow the tan to continue to develop to its full depth (takes 6-24 hours)
  • This solution does not contain SPF so don’t forget to apply sunscreen to protect your skin from the suns harsh rays
The Bella bronze tan mit is very soft on the skin and makes applying the tan very quick and easy.
Violet Dark choc bronze mouse
Gentle cleansing body wash

I love this body wash. It smells like lemon and is so soft and gentle on your skin. This body wash repairs and conditions your skin as well as still maintaining the colour of your tan! truly amazing.

Hydrating body moisturiser

I apply this moisturiser every night when getting out of the shower. It helps maintain the tan as well as hydrate my skin.

It’s important to keep all these products stored below 20 degrees and in a dark area

Overall I am super happy with this tan, it is easy to apply, soft on my skin and lasts for a adequate amount of time due to the cleansing body wash and hydrating moisturiser.

Naked 2 Urban Decay palette Review

Naked 2 Urban Decay palette Review



I must admit the Naked 2 Urban decay eye shadow palette is one of my all time favourites! This palette features 12 insanely beautiful eye shadows, all in which are fairly neutral tones. The formulas glide across the lid without pulling or creasing and can be blended and layered very easily, creating a stunning eye look. The palette also comes with a dual ended eye shadow blending brush (which I have unfortunately lost) as well as a mirror.


The first half of the palette have the shades FOXY – cream bisque matte, HALF BAKED – golden bronze shimmer, BOOTYCALL – cork shimmer, CHOPPER – copper shimmer and silver micro glitter and TEASE – creamy pale brown matte.


The second half include the shades SNAKEBITE – dark bronze shimmer, SUSPECT – pale golden beige shimmer, PISTOL – light greyish brown shimmer, VERVE – oyster shimmer, YDK – cool bronze shimmer, BUSTED – deep brown shimmer and BLACKOUT – blackest black matte.


Here are the swatches on my arm from left to right in order of the eye shadow palette. I love experimenting with all the different colours. When creating a smokey eye look I always use the shades pistol, blackout and a touch of YDK. However my go to combination is usually the shades bootycall, chopper and suspect. These three colours create a shimmery look and are perfect for a night out.

Im always looking for new eye shadow pallets, if you have any suggestions please let me know!

A day at the Melbourne ZOO!

A day at the Melbourne ZOO!


It doesn’t matter how many times you visit the Zoo it will never get boring as there is always something different to look at and the animals are always up to various things.  My favourite animals at the zoo are the Orangoutangs, Elephants and the Zebras. I also loved the butterfly enclosure. You don’t even want to know how long I spent in there waiting for one to land on me. The gibbon monkeys were great to look at as they came right up to the window and started swinging in front of us, the little show offs!

It was really upsetting to see that many animals are becoming close to extinct, some reasons for these are actually due to humans. Ill leave links below to specific campaigns in which you can get involved in helping saving these animals and becoming aware of the things that you may be doing wrong to increase the chance of extinction among animals.

When visiting the Zoo I recommend taking a picnic, Its really nice sitting outside on the grass area and admiring the scenery + the food there is very expensive and isn’t anything amazing. Overall it was a great day at the Melbourne Zoo and without a doubt I highly recommend visiting.

Moments & Memories

Moments & Memories

I don’t know about you but I have a hell of a lot of photos stored on both my computer and IPad. Recently I have been worried about these thousands  of photos getting lost if something was to happen to my computer.

I’ve always been someone who loves reminiscing on memories, so I thought what better way to do this than printing my favourite moments out and putting them in an album so I can look back on them whenever I like.

So on my boring Friday morning this is exactly what I did!

First you will need to print off the photos you would like to put into your album. I printed mine off at Kmart.
You will then need to purchase a photo album. I also picked mine up from Kmart for only $10


I then organised my photos into different years and various events, to keep my album in order, because lets be honest no one wants random photos scattered all over the place.
I then began inserting images into my album
Captions are always important especially if you want to remember specific details such as the date and year the photo was taken
Grouping pages according to each event is a great way to keep your album neat. As you can see above this page is filled with photos from a fancy dress party.


Im really happy with how my album has turned out. I have only done last year and this year but will definitely be putting together more albums from previous years. I really encourage anyone who has been thinking about doing this or worried about photos getting lost, as I truly believe it is a great way to look back on previous memories.

If anyone has done something similar or I have inspired you to make an album like mine, I would love to see it!

My two go to festival outfits

My two go to festival outfits

Over the past 6 months I’ve had the opportunity to attend two music festivals. I absolutely love the atmosphere that the festivals produce, the entertainment is amazing and of course I enjoy spending the day with my friends.

My favourite festival was called ‘Let go fest’ located in Mornington. We really couldn’t have asked for a better day as the weather was perfect and the music and talent was outstanding. My outfit was very simple with minimal jewellery. I wore a plain white backless jumpsuit with floral detailing and paired it with a black belt and black sandals. I also painted my nails dark pink to add some colour to the overall look.

Groovin the Moo was the second festival I attended, located in Bendigo. Whilst it was a long journey to get there it was definitely worth it. My outfit for this festival consisted of a black denim skirt, a black bralet, a pink tie up top, denim jacket and a black chocker necklace. I placed a ton of glitter on my chest as well as a few stick on tattoo’s purchased from sportsgirl to enhance the festival vibe.


Hope you enjoyed this post, Let me know in the comments what outfit you liked best xx
