Makeup Collection Price Tag

Hey! So I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. I had way too much fun trying to figure out how much my makeup collection was worth.

I decided to make it into another video, and it ended up being 20 minutes long. That was as short as I could make it. I enjoyed filming and editing it, and I hope it’s fun to watch. You can at least get a really good look at my current makeup collection.

By the way, you guys who have tons of makeup, have you ever sat down and tried to figure out how much it’s worth? It’s pointless, but so much fun.

Anyway, here’s the video.

For you guys who just want to know what the final value is, then skip to the summary at 16.30.

Do you know how much your make up collection is?

Ring of Fire Ukulele Cover

Yeah, so this is a big thing for me. I used to play music in front of people, back in high school, when I was the best flautist around (I was only really average). But since then, I haven’t performed anything music related to any people other than myself. I mentioned recently that I’ve been practising the ukulele. There’s a few songs that I can do pretty well now, but only one or two I feel comfortable enough to show people. Even now I’m nervous about putting myself out there, but I really do love playing this song.

It’s Ring of Fire, by Johnny Cash. I’m not really a country fan, but I like this song, and it’s one of the easier songs I’ve learnt. It only has three chords, and repeats itself quite a bit. Plus, he sings in a lower register, which lends itself better to my pitch, as I can’t sing very high (or well).

So I’ll just shush now, and let you guys watch the video. I feel proud of myself for filming and sharing this, and it’s motivating me to keep practising. It can only go up from here (I suppose).

Our Proposal Story

Well, hey! Today marks the six month anniversary for our wedding!

I haven’t stopped talking about and sharing parts of our wedding since starting this blog really. It dawned on me though, that I haven’t really talked about the proposal. I think I’ve talked about it a little, but not recently, and not to the extent I have with our wedding. I was trying to  write it down, and then I realized that it was easier for me to just say it.

So I’ve filmed a little storytime vlog where I tell you about how the proposal went down. By the way, it took me like 5 tries to get this right, cause my camera does this thing sometimes where after 2 minutes, it goes super blurry and you can’t see anything. Course I don’t notice, cause it doesn’t have one of those flippy things so you can see yourself on screen. I may look into getting a nice, decent camera. My phone is good, but for videos and things were I use my tripod, I need a camera.

Anyway, here’s the story of our proposal. Sorry about my silly camera which kept putting me out of focus.

Namaste Collective

Namaste Collective

Hey guys! So I bought temporary henna tattoos from Namaste Collective a long time ago (last September actually), and I just came across them. I totally forgot about them! I love their products though, so I consider myself an Avid fan of their work. I really suggest you check them out!

I found them through Amanda Faye, a YouTuber I follow, who has the cutest daughter (Luna), and lovely husband (Matthias, another YouTuber). Her Instagram is here and she also has an Etsy shop I believe, but whenever I try go there everything is already sold out! They also have a joint channel called Matt & Amanda (formerly Nerds in Love), which I have been following for years. They are one of my favourite YouTube couples (just behind Felix & Marzia, and Jenna & Julien).

Anyway, she talked about Namaste Collective who are an Australian company who make and sell henna tattoos, as well as a few other products. This was my first little foray into the tattoo world, and they also led me to look into mandala designs. I needed to spend $55 to get the free shipping as well, so I bought three packs of the temporary henna kits. Two in brown, and one in white. They also sent me a free henna kit on top of that !

The following images are from their site, cause mine are all used up!

They come with a whole sheet of different patterns. They come with a few matching designs for your hands/wrist/arm. A few large ones that are suitable for your back, chest or thigh. Some medium designs, that can be used for legs/arms/back. As well a ton of small ones that you can combine with others or put anywhere!

The cool thing about these temporary tattoos are how easy they are to get on and they last for around 2-5 days, depending on how well you care for them and the position. If you put it somewhere more exposed, like your hands, or feet they don’t last as long I’ve found. But the ones I put on my leg, back and arms lasted for a full 5 days before they started slowly coming off. Basically after the length of days, you can rub it off with baby oil or something similar, or just start scratching bits and pieces off like I did XD

Now for the process of putting them on, I cut out the one I wanted and decided where to put it (sometimes I asked for Rory’s help, like for the one I put on my back). Then you peel off the sticker and place it on, covering it with a wet flannel for 15-30 seconds. The bigger the design, the longer you should keep it on. The smaller ones take only a few seconds. Then gently peel off the paper, and your design should be on your skin. If it’s not, then just gently put it back on and press the damp flannel on for a bit longer.

I did this many times since I bought it, that now it’s run out. It did set off my love for tattoos again, which is why I  eventually got my real one a week ago!! I do wish I took more photos of them all though..ah well. Next time!

If you want to know more about their products, I’ve copied a little tidbit from their website:

We have put our heart and soul into everything we offer in our store. We are a small business with just a few young individuals trying to make a difference

The henna kit was tested and altered for months on end before being released for everyone’s enjoyment. We strived to find the safest, most pure henna in the world, and also the henna that would be easiest to use. We have designed the henna kit so that whether you are a complete beginner to art, or an experienced henna artist, it will be the kit for you. We are also currently designing other products which will be unique and of course ethically manufactured – stay tuned!

And of course, we never test on animals, or engage in any unethical practises through our manufacturing or suppliers. In fact, we will always go the long way to help those in need through our purchasing and manufacturing – it is these little things that count!

By the way, this may seem like a sponsored post, but it’s not, I just really loved their product! I haven’t yet touched the henna kit, because I’m terrified XD I may give it a go one day, but I’m so worried I’m going to mess it up.

So if you’re interested, I’ll leave their links below. Definitely get their products if you’re interested. The designs are so lovely, and they’re all 100% vegan and organic, so even with sensitive skin you shouldn’t have any problems.
