Chocolate Boutique. Arg! So yum!

Awesome food/drink and even better company. Thankies Amelia. I hate eating out alone.

Look at what I had:
Chocolate steamed pudding. Gosh. It was so good.

And (predictably) a flat white. It was good. I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

And here's what Amelia had:
Chocolate Waffles and an amazing Hot Chocolate which I'm sure I'd adore in an alternative universe.


I'm leaving soon. I'm gonna miss everyone T_T. Who'd have thought I'd make such good friends in 17 weeks?

Thanks Amelia for taking me out! I even chewed with my mouth closed (I think).

BED BUGS ~ not even kidding

Well, my lower legs have been devoured like a buffet by voracious, blood sucking, minions-of-the-devil BED BUGS! At this point I am freaked out about sleeping under the covers and might just use the spare blanket in the closet instead. Everyday I wake up and the bites are getting higher and higher. I've never had this problem until this week and I am certain they aren't fleas or mosquitos. Very unhappy.

>.< So this week we've just been going over what we already know but this time we got to be experimental. Here's a picture of me after my partner did an experimental "elegant lip" look on me. Pretty neat, huh?

What else?

Nothing really. Here's last weeks nails. I did two designs because the rhinestones fell off the first one and it looked boring without them.
Okay. Bye again, this time next week I'll be home. Wow. Time flies.

Week 15: Vintage Beauty

I loved this week!

Here's where I'm sitting while I have a latte. I rate the latte 4 out of 10. Not as good as previous orders unfortunately.

On Tuesday we started on the 50s and did a Lady Gaga inspired look from the Telephone video. It was such a cool look that I did it again on myself when I got home.

In the afternoon we did a 50s inspired doll look. We were inspired by pictures of Barbie and other doe eyed toys. I loved the makeup I did on my partner and I also dressed her in one of my gowns. She looked amazing! Unfortunately I only have one picture on my iTouch which doesn't really show the makeup but it gives an impression of the look.

And here's the look she did on me:

On Tuesday we did the 60s and you know what? I think I like the makeup of this era even more than the 50s because they had the strong lines and awesome colours not to mention FAKE EYELASHES!

I ADORED the look I did on my partner, I was so proud of my work. In my opinion I captured the 60s perfectly right down to the houndstooth dress I had my model wear.

I wasn't that excited by the 70s. It didn't give me much leeway to experiment while retaining the period-look elements, ya know? Doing fancy things like cat-flicks and concentrated colour made it 50s & 60s again.

The 70s is a nice look and that's it. The look of the era is definitely defined by the clothes opposed to the makeup.

On Friday we did the 80s and our own version of the Black Swan makeup. It was fun, but by that time I was so tired from the full-on week I didn't get that into it.

Here's the look my partner did on me.

Anyway, that's it for this week. Coming up we are doing advanced natural, elegant and sultry looks. I'll post up again next week. Leave me a message!

Btw Samantha, I found your Tumblr account. I'm not sure how it works so I didn't leave a comment but I did see it!

Here's a picture of my nails from a few weeks ago. Prettiest look EVER!

I have a cold!!!

I feel pretty crap at the moment cuz I have a cold. I feel better now that I'm having this hot chocolate. Just the pretty fern makes me feel better.

Esquires has redeemed themselves so long as I don't have their coffee.

My lower back is so sore! I feel like the hag in my previous posts. I took mums remedy and bought myself a bag of crystalised Ginger, it really helps. It eases my throat and the congestion. I hope the worst is over by Tuesday because I don't want to miss a day. We're doing the 50s, 60s, 70s & 80 s.

It's been a busy week and, since I feel so bad, I can't be bothered relaying it. No good photos for me to share anyway.

Well, I do have a few photos. I was tinkering with this new app. Here's the end results. Windows are very photogenic.

Yes, I know, they're a bit naff, but what do you expect with an app? They're all filters and I'm pretty sure everyone who has it thinks their an accomplished photographer.

Why am I ranting? I'm going home.

Week 14: Nanas & serial killers

We did the more theatrical make up this week. It was fun and, best of all, not hard to pass. We all looked weird. My previous post showed when I was transformed into a rather dirty looking man.

Here is what I look like as a pasty old lady with bad lipstick.

...not to mention really bad hair.


Work it, Nan! The lens loves you!

At the moment, I am at The Coffee Club having this coffee:

And this salmon and pesto bagel:

So yeah, that's it. It's been a busy but quiet week so I don't have much to blog about.

Oh, but I can't forget this:

Happy Mothers Day, Mum!

I love you.

WARNING! Rapist / serial killer

Today we unveiled or masculine personality. Turns out, my alternative is a janitor at the hospital morgue. His name is Nigel and he sneaks home organs to eat. He particularly enjoys human livers...

Thumbs up if you like Nigel!

Week: I'm-not-sure-any-more

Been a sloppy blogger, I have! Never mind, better late than never. I'm sitting in the Coffee Club determined to get this post done. I have incentive thanks to Mr. & Mrs. D:

So, the week before last we did WWI makeup, which essentially is the 1920s. I LOVED this look! It suited me and my personality.

See Mum, black makeup is very flattering on me. And here's my partner's styling on me:

Also that week Nef came to visit me. It was nice to have someone around. Since we did quite a lot of things I'll post the pictures to tell the story or else I'll be typing forever. Funnily enough, most of the photos involve food...

I had the chicken BBQ and Nef had a Margarita pizza. So Good!

Next day, we went to the Coffee Club and had steak sandwiches:

We also went to the movies and watched "Sucker Punch" it was good enough...bit obscure and Mary-Sue-ish but I enjoyed it all the same. Ending was good, I have to admit. And I loved all the glittery makeup and outfits.

Picture above is Nef in the cinema.

Next day:

Poached eggs on toast. So Good! Really enjoyed that breakfast.

So did Nef...


Can't remember what this place was called but it was very average. We both had Cashew curry which sounded better than it was.

And after the Indian, we went to the museum to see the war projections on the exterior for Anzac commemoration. It was awesome, except for the giant cockroach. Shudder.

And the next day we went to The Chocolate Boutique. I had an Irish Coffee, which I managed to drink--but only barely. It was too sweet and fake tasting. Nef had a Macadamia Mocha which I Strongly advised against. She doesn't even like mochas! It was worse than mine. Even sweeter! Nef was (predictably) unable to drink it. I like the glasses.

The food was good. Nef had Chocolate Waffles and I had the Sticky Date Pudding. We enjoyed those.

The next day we had coffee at The Coffee Club.

And here is Nef experiencing the Link Bus on a rainy day. Such joy on her face!

And then she left and I was alone again...

*sniff, sniff* enjoy my queen sized without epiglottis noises.


So, onto last week and then I'm all blogged out. Nail design was a simple French Tip (Revlon: Tropical Punch) with a nail sticker over the polish. Looked complex and real pretty with no effort. Wish iTouch could pick up the design better.

The makeup was WWII. I liked it very much; there were fake lashes and the sneer lip. While I really enjoyed wearing the look, I must admit that the sneer lip didn't suit me because if my mini-sized lips.

Here's the picture anyway:

Btw, thanks for the B-day earrings Van! I'm wearing them. Also, thanks for the receipt, you must have been delighted to stick within your traditional budget.

And that's it! Fewf! That was a lot of work. No wonder I kept putting it off.
