Currently Baking and Reading

Currently Baking & Reading 


My weekend passed me by quite quickly, It was spent doing the things I enjoy however don't always get time to do.
On what I would call a not-so-lazy Saturday I spent my time baking a deliciously healthy treat (I have posted the recipe for you all below) and reading a novel among other things. 

Yummy Banana Bread!

Ingredients: 1 1/2 Cups of Almond Meal 
Three Bananas 
Two eggs
1/2 Cup of Shredded Coconut 
One Tablespoon of Natural Peanut Butter
One Tablespoon of LSA Mix 
1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla Essence

Step One: Mash Bananas 

Step Two: Add all Ingredients into a mixing bowl 

Step Three: Add vanilla into mixture, I used Organic Vanilla Bean extract which I believe gives a better taste and is better for you then the normal Vanilla Essence, I used the one pictured below which can be found in the Cakes/Baking section of the supermarket

Step Four: Beat Mixture until a smooth consistency 

Step Five: Bake for approximately Twenty Minutes, I garnished the top of my loaf with almond slithers and baked until brown, due to the nature of how this loaf is baked it doesn't quite lift of the edges of the baking tray however slides out well if you grease the tray thorougly. 

Currently Reading: A Jack Reacher Thriller by Lee Child, I have read most of the series now and find each and every book written well and gripping.

 I hope you all enjoyed this post and I look forward to sharing my next post with you all!!

Current Cosmetics Obsessions



I need to share with you all my current fab finds! Unfortunately I have not always had the best of skin, over the past few years I have continued to focus on the finished product once I had put my make up on but always used the most expensive products on my face and skin and my breakouts continued to get worse and worse.
I have never been too blessed with my complexion in being that I have sensitive skin so did some research and decided to try out a new foundation teamed with a new cleansing process morning and night. 

Over the weekend I stopped by David Jones and picked up my first Kora Organics three step combo. After much umming and aahing I picked out Miranda's recommended pack for oily skin

(pictured below)

The products pictured are the foaming cleanser, energizing citrus mist and the purifying day and night cream

- This has honestly been the BEST money I have ever spent on face products! 
Within two days my skin started to clear noticeably I am now Four days into using these products and would recommend them to anyone, I also love the fact that they are organic certified and am an avid believer in my organic foods so figure if i don't want to put crap food into my body, why would I want to put crappy processed products into my skin?! 
The price of the products is a little on the more expensive side however I would not put a price on the confidence the products have given me now I am beginning to feel better in my own skin. 

My second favourite product at the moment is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation which was recommended to me by a friend, I really love this makeup purely for the consistency, coverage and how it feels and looks on my skin. 
I find that the base of the product is not orange, yellow or pink and tends to bring out my own pigmentation in my skin which in turn the makeup compliments. 

(I have also pictured this product below) 

This product is in no way organic however I find seems to be alot better for my skin opposed to many other foundations I have previously tried. 
Colour - I purchased 2N1 Desert Beige 12

Please feel free to add some comments in the comment box below in regards to this post if you would like any further information, see anything featured on this blog or simply just want to share your experience with me in regards to these products or if you would recommend any products you think i should try based on this post! 

I look forward to my next post

My First Post!

October Twenty - Second 

My First Post!


I have been contemplating creating a blog for a while now, I must admit I do enjoy reading other people's blogs however wasn't too sure if it really was for me. 
It wasn't until I really came to terms with the fact that I do really enjoy fashion, styling, writing and cosmetics among other things - lets just face it we all love the superficial things in life sometimes so why not share our own obsessions!! 

A little about me - I am a Commerce Student working full time and loved by the most amazing and supportive man I could ever ask for. 
Based out of the Gold Coast, Australia; in my free time I enjoy soaking up the sun with a good book or dreaming about my next adventure.

I shall endeavor for my next post very soon, but for now I will love you and leave you with a little Halloween inspiration
