What’s currently in my beauty bag[s]

Hi Pals,

I’ve always thought of myself as a light packer but my housemate is pretty unconvinced that I’ll be able to do carry on (rude.) I’ve definitely had less make up in the past travelling, and I probably don’t need this much now – but it’s so easy to accumulate. You get 7kg with carry on with majority of airlines these days and boy does that all add up!

All my items fit into the two above bags, the clear one being flight approved 1litre, 20 x 20 cm resalable (You can get one here from Globite.)  The other is just a cute peach and watermelon print I picked up from Daiso for $2.80. So here’s my constant 2 beauty bags and what I pack inside.

Canberra is kinda cool, really.

Hiya Pals,

I recently went to the capital of Australia, Canberra for a weekend away.  The main reason I go is that I have friends who live there but I also really enjoy the city!

You might have heard that Canberra recently made #3 in a Lonely Planet for Top Cities, along with Seville, Detroit, Hamburg and Oslo. However, it’s for those cities they believe is up and coming. (Unsure about why Oslo is there? It’s probably because of a) the cost to get there B) then cost to stay there. I don’t think that’s reason enough but hey, I’m not LP.)

The reason I’m doing this post is that whilst in Canberra we got talking about lists why you should go there. I’m not going to link the list, but the last reason was that “you can pet a cheetah.” Can you do it? Yes. Should you do it? Probably not.

Anyways, these are my favourite things in Canberra to do and thus What you should do when you go to Canberra!

REVIEW: Puffs, the play.

Hi Pals,

I recently got to go seePuffs Or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years At A Certain School Of Magic & Magic” which is written by Matt Cox. It was a play that outshone my expectations, I Neville would have thought I’d see something Harry Potter related until the Cursed Child comes out later in Melbourne in 2019 (sorry not sorry Sydney.)

If you’re lucky enough to be in New York City or Melbourne (both the apparent best cities in the world if they’ve got Puffs) and you wanna see Harry Potter from a Hufflepuff’s view? Check. Out. PUFFS! 

What you should know about Lasik Eye Surgery.

Hiya Pals,

If you’re a [former] glasses wearer like me, you’ve probably thought about Lasik Eye Surgery. Lasik (Laser Assisted In-Situ Keratomileusis but lets keep it short) is essentially a correction of your eye. It reshapes the inner cornea so that you can focus more clearly with vision. It’s been around for ages and has thousands of studies. Feel free to go check them all out, or if you’re like me just google “lasik gone wrong” – actually please don’t do that.
