Hi ♥

Lately I've strangely been more into buying beauty products than buying clothing. We got an Ulta here in my town right before I got back for Europe and it's been bad news for my bank account, haha. My parents gifted me the Benefit "They're Real! Push Up Eyeliner" and I've been obsessed with it. I could never get my cat eye correct before and it always smeared off by the end of the day. This eyeliner though is amazing. It has a precise tip made for the perfect flick, and it's dark, solid, and consistent. I went snowmobiling for two and a half hours with it on when I was in Wisconsin. It was -3 out and I had my mask down on my helmet so the wind was coming at me full force. I was nervous to look at my face when we got back to the house; thinking it was going to be a racoon eyed, smeared mess, but I was so surprised it was just as perfect as when I put it on. SO worth the $24...I will be a re-buyer for life!

I've also been really into looking trying out natural, DIY beauty remedies. I'd love to get my skin in check in 2015. It's not awful, but it's not where I'd like it to be. I should just really take better care of it because hey, it's the only skin I'll ever have! I asked on twitter (@passingwhimsies) for some natural remedies to try and got an amazing response. I've been doing a raw honey and oatmeal mask the past few days and can already tell the different in my skin. If you all have any more suggestions, I would seriously LOVE to hear them! x

Hope you all are well :) As always, love you! x

With much love, Lauren.

I absolutely love this combo! The shirt goes perfectly with the little jumper-dress! I adore it! And Russian Red is such a good color. Definitely one of my go-tos.

Ohh your making me really want to try that Benefit eyeliner! Maybe that is where my Christmas Sephora gift card will go. ;)
I love making a mask from plain yogurt and a little bit of honey! It makes my skin super soft and helps to even the tone.
Also, this outfit is perfection!

I would love to hear your favorite lip liners! I want to wear more lip color but I can't get it to stay so I definitely need to try lip liner. There's just so many options and I wonder if there's one that's a good base for lots of different colors.

I'm obsessed with your outfit! I love it so much, wish I could find pieces like that in NZ.

I've been spending a lot on makeup the past year or so. It's addicting! I'm not sure about many natural skin remedies but I've been taking off my eye makeup with plain olive oil for the past year or so. It actually works really well!

Also this polka dot pinafore is so incredibly cute. I love it paired with the red blouse and cute little hat.

Aloe vera is a good moisturiser

This outfit is very cute! I am definitely a sucker for polka dots. I'm definitely into using natural products as well. I've started using coconut oil as a moisturizer for my skin, I also use a sugar and lemon scrub to remove dry skin.
