Topic: Talkback / BH Trial Team

I am proud to say that I have just been sent my very first product to review for BH’s Trial Team! :)
I am so excited to be part of this team.
Thanks ladies xx

Also, I can’t seem to find the Neutrogena Hydroboost under the ‘products’ section on BH – does anyone know where I am meant to post my review?

Thanks again.

Topic: Talkback / !! WARNING!!! HAUL:D

I’m kinda embarrassed to show this but I think we all have some addiction so hopefully I won’t be judged :/ this is all the polishes I’ve acquired in the last month. It’s a lot, yes, I know. I don’t even know what else to say.

I thought: that’s nothing I’ve heaps more nail polishes than that.
Then I read this is what you’ve acquired in the last MONTH! WTF?
This is why you’re always on the NOTD thread!

Hahaha! Yes, shamefully so :/ I’m always looking out for new ones. It’s a sad addiction.

How are all you lovely ladies doing?
In 2 days I’ll be 30 weeks, that means only 10 weeks left til I meet my beautiful little Bean.
I am starting to get nervous. Any tips of how to survive labour? Haha.

Topic: Hands & feet / mbeautylounge cheap polish?

I ordered $300 of polishes in January and have yet to see a single one. They are ignoring my messages exceot for when i tell them that their self-imposed 6 week timescale for delivery has passed – then they just tell me that they have re-shipped my order.

I have moved house since my first order and they don’t even acknowledge that. I don’t believe for a second that they have sent me anything, they are just keeping my money.

Rude, unprofessional and incompetent fraudsters.

Topic: Health & wellbeing / Does anyone else suffer from POST menstrual syndrome?

I know exactly what you’re talking about! I used to get POST-menstrual depression in my teens (this is many years ago now). I went on the pill for a few years, when I came off it, I got the more common PRE-menstrual variety.
You’re definitely not crazy – I wonder how many doctors for how many hundreds of years told women their pre-menstrual symptoms were all in their silly little heads? Hormones change your mood – that is now an acknowledged fact. Menses, ovulation, pregnancy & menopause all change the way our minds work for the duration of whichever hormonal flux we happen to be victim of at the time.
Cramping aside, I find that the horrific depression (borderline suicidal at times) which comes over me every month subsides once I realise that I’m premenstrual. I use this awareness to ‘fob off’ my depression. It’s easy when you realise the world’s not out to get you & you’re not the complete f-wit you thought you were before you realised what time of month it is. It took me a lot of practice to bite my tongue when I wanted to scream at some idiot that I would genuinely regret this course of action in just a few days time. After my period came, I would always reflect on the silly things which nearly pushed me over the edge. I’d realise they were silly. I’d be so grateful that I did bite my tongue, or conversely, I’d be mortified at the incident in which I let fly. With practice, I’d get the feelings of depression or homicidal rage & know that it’s just a temporary hormonal thing. It doesn’t make the depression/rage/anxiety go away, but the strength dwindles to a huge degree when I realise it’s JUST my hormones & not a covert conspiracy against me.
I don’t see a difference between pre & post-menstrual symptoms, it’s all hormonal, it’s all REAL, & it can be debilitating & scary – especially if your depression turns very dark.
Change pills or go off it for a while. Stress to your doctor that this is serious! Did you tell her you get DANGEROUSLY depressed? & did this happen when you weren’t on the pill?
Just know that you’re not crazy, & you’re not the only one.
(Cross your fingers & pray for menopause like me.)

Topic: Hair / Silk Pillowcases

Bump… I currently have a satin pillow case but have noticed some fine lines (mainly around my left eye as that’s the side I usually sleep on) so I was thinking of purchasing a silk pillowcase to see if it’s any better. Has anyone purchased one off ebay? Also does it have to be 100% silk? There are some cheaper ones that are satin/silk but I’m not sure if they will be any good. If silk ones are too expensive then I am willing to purchase material from Spotlight and make it myself but I still need to know what kind of silk would give me best results.

Silk is 100% natural & everyone says it breathes better, but I can’t wear silk tops without getting all clammy. It feels like I’m wearing gladwrap.
I’ve got cheap polyester satin pillowslips which I reckon are OK.
I get creeped out by silk because they boil the larvae alive in the cocoons so they can unravel them in one strand. I don’t know if that’s an issue for you, I’m not a vegetarian or vegan, but some things (like this) I avoid.

Topic: Make-up / The FOTD Thread!

Today’s face, and just for fun I included in the pic the red and gold watch I found – you know how I feel about matching lol!
Lips are Lacura Minerals Ruby Red with a touch of Mirenesse gloss over the top…

Oh that look is very classy kats. You look like you should be going out somewhere swishy but I am assuming it is for work?
Yes, the watch is a great match :-))))

Yes it was for work jatz – if I’m going to a client meeting I try and dress up a bit more, otherwise my winter work “uniform” is boots, leggings or trousers and long tops to cover my wobbly bits ♥

Here’s my manic Monday face – was running way too late this morning to take any pics of my eyes :-( Lipstick is Lacura Minerals Rosewood – LOVE it! (with a smidgin of Mirenesse pink gloss over the top)…

I don’t think I’ve ever seen you dressed in colours blue and white and you look totally gorgeous. Love it all from top to bottom of the picture. Loving the pink lippy. All your FOTD’S always make me smile.
Hope you weren’t late for the long train ride.

Your comments make ME smile jatz – bless you darling :-) No – I made the train with about 30 seconds to spare ha ha…

This is my first FOTD. I’m not sure if I’m meant to list the products I used as I see some users do and some don’t. I’m in love with my VS curl secret and that’s who I have to thank for the hair. I love red lippy and wish I could wear it everyday but it’s too OTT for uni and work.

You look fabulous kaaayte – so glad you’re joining in the fun, and hope to see lots more pics of your gorgeous face ♥

My darling Moonlight, I’m delighted that you like what I love putting together ♥ Will see what I can do about outfit pics – my room lighting is woeful and I loathe using a flash, but I’ll give it a shot. Might have to get up a bit earlier though – eek!

Oh no Gofton! I reckon it’s the retinol. The same thing happens to me if I use anything containing retinol, even if it’s only a tiny amount.
I found that Avene Skin Recovery Cream helped clear it up quickly. Hope it clears up soon for you.
