7 Ways to find your purpose in life


I recently bought a new magazine…… and I am IN LOVE with it…… I am basically copying from the book, but this is practical, and a huge guidance for you if you want to find purpose in everything that you do. Whether you’re a full-time working mum, single entrepreneur, starting your own small business, or creating ideas for a future business, or even if you want to find out anything about yourself when applying your own qualities to life itself.

Below you will find the link:

Dressing Well


dressing-well

How do you feel about how you look?

Do you feel the need for a new makeover?

Do you feel like you need to put more effort in making yourself look more beautiful?

Beauty is a widely communicated topic world-wide. We have etiquette experts, leading lady’s in focusing on Makeup and Beauty, socialites in every city that talks about being beautiful in magazines, newspapers, articles are everywhere!

For a while now I have been wanting to target on “Dressing Well”. When I lived in Melbourne growing up I wore special dresses on a Sunday morning to church, and for years I wore only dresses on Sunday mornings, NEVER pants – that was Sunday nights. I used to love dressing up, and powdering my face. I didn’t wear makeup till I was about 16. I started with just eyeliner and lipgloss, but when I entered my early twenties I became obsessed with mascara, and eye-shadow, and contouring, etc.

When it comes to dressing, I have always liked lace kind of dresses – white lace or ivory laced dresses are my favourite because it is so effeminate, delicate and charming. I was a Cue enthusiast and people would brand me with that name! My first outfit I ever bought with my first pay in my first job was a CUE jacket and skirt, and I still have it after 10 plus years! I loved that outfit and wore it a lot.

I think if you have a corporate/administration job working in an office it is important to impress your bosses with the way you present yourself. I once put in a bit of effort and had a compliment from my boss! He said he was impressed! So, if you do work in an office environment it is imperative that you dress appropriately, and refine your look.

Currently, Cue has a “wear to work” section on their website, and I think it is the best brand out there if you want to have a Corporate look.

A Work Look

You can pair a classic Black Cigarette Pant with a Georgette Ruffle Front Blouse.

Dresses

Check out this Black Lace Full Hem Dress for $409. It comes in size 6 to 14. It is made from corded lace, features cap sleeves, a boat neckline and a full tulle skirt. The belt that comes with it is also Rose Gold.

There is also the Textured Lace Funnel Neck Dress for $339 which is a Zip front dress, has a funnel neckline, and a slight A line hem.

Dressing well involves getting your hair done as well. 

Looking Irresistible involves getting yourself together, and finding the perfect outfit and making yourself look right. If you haven’t seen my post on the brand Irresistible Me, check out the difference of me with my normal hair to wearing the new hair extensions!!! There is such a difference! Making sure you wash your hair at least twice a week, doing a hair treatment or mask once a week and doing a blow wave or straightening your hair is beneficial, and its imperative that you do it regularly if you want to keep yourself well-groomed.

A few favourites……


I am a magazine junkie….. Every time a new Royal Life magazine comes out I am off to the newsagency with excitement that they have put one aside for me…. I should probably subscribe for a year or so, but I like the idea that one is held for me at the newsagency so I can just walk down and grab my copy!

I always eagerly scout out the rest that are on display such as Cosmopolitan or Cleo even Women’s Health. I used to love Grazia, because it was very informative and always has really good pictures to look at. Unfortunately, the magazine selection at Merredin isn’t as good as the ones in Kellerberrin. They have “Majesty” and “Royalty” which I would have loved to have as well.

I recently bought the latest “In Style” magazine with Jennifer Hawkins on the front. It is the March issue and it has fabulous sections on “Shopping for the new season” and “10 Top Beauty Looks”.

I will be poring over this on the long weekend. This weekend will probably be a lazy one for me! Much to my excitement I realised there is going to be a new season of “The Real Housewives of Melbourne”!! Because I am so far away from Melbourne it keeps me feeling closer to home when I watch things like this. 💙

20160305-095008.jpg

I came across a new mascara by “Estee Lauder”. Would love any feedback if you have used it. It is very NEW and called the Sumptuous Knockout Mascara which has maximum lash impact and is blacker than black. Apparently it fannes out, lifts and defines!! This I would LOVE to try!!!! Unfortunately at the moment I can not add links to text, so it can be found on http://www.esteelauder.com.au 💄🎀❤️

20160305-095424.jpg

On page 134 there are some Beauty Hot Spots with International Editors where they have chosen some of their beauty favourites. This section you will LOVE…. Editor, Cassie Steer from the United Kingdom suggested the Garnier Perfector BB Cream…. Not too long ago I was using BB Creams as they were a moisturiser and foundation in ONE!! This cream is $14.95. They are normally not expensive, pretty cheap and are a tinted base with SPF. You can call 1300 659 359 to place your order.

20160305-100216.jpg

I want to try the Josie Maran Cosmetics Pure Argan Oil. Apparently it nourishes your face, hair, nails or anywhere where you need extra hydration! It is $66 and is found on http://www.mecca.com.au.

20160305-102116.jpg

I have posted about my MAC Face Mist on my Instagram, so when I run out I would like to do a swap and try out the Chanel Hydra Beauty Essence Mist. It is $85, which is an average price considering it’s Chanel! It is an instant hydrator and moisturises your skin at the same time!

20160305-101112.jpg

So these are a few favourites that are on my beauty list at the moment! This weekend I might find some more to add to my list as I continue to read on. Yes! I have already found a L’Oreal Paris Hair Expertise UltraRich Precious Oil Mist! Would be great for voluminous hair!!!! And styling……… These products mentioned will help to replenish the skin on the face and make you looking as fresh as ever!!!! Browse on Mecca.com.au….. You’re bound to find something you like!!!

Happy beauty product shopping!!

Now, need to catch up on Downton Abbey………
