Kmart + Priceline Haul

Hey Chickens,
Been a while, eh. Basically without going into detail, school has been quite busy and just life in general, don't want to ramble on to long about all that stuff so lets get right into this post. Today I went shopping and purchased a few items that I wanted to share with you. I'm not trying to brag in any way at all, I just wanted to show you all what I got. Lets get right into it shall we.

Firstly I went to Priceline which I didn't actually buy all that much. There is a few new Rimmel products that I have my eye on but I'm not going to buy them just yet because I really do not need anymore makeup and I can't afford to buy them.
I got the Beauty Essentials Cucumber Cleansing Wipes which are so cheap and so nice so I really recommend them; I haven't tried any of the other types. Then I got the Australis Get Glow Game limited edition face palette which was $10 off. I've been wanting this for a few months and everything about it is stunning. The packaging, the powders I love it all. I spent like $20 bucks at Priceline and I also brought soap but we don't want to see that.

Then I went to Kmart and got like heaps of bargins. I just got some essential things like large makeup remover pads which I find so much better than the smaller circle ones. I also got a 16 pack of makeup sponges because I go through beauty blenders so quickly that the sponges are better for me. I did decided to try some fake lashes today and I went for the OXX Studio volume lashes in the style Kylie. I don't know much about fake eyelashes but I thought that these would be nice. I also got the OXX Metallic Lips liquid lip + liner set. It doesn't have a shade but I got this on clearance for $2.50 when it is normally $5 bucks. I also got another thing on clearance which was such a good value. For $9 bucks I got an Australis complexion perfection kit which includes 40ml of their Original Primer and 6g of their Ready Set Go finishing powder. I don't know the original price of this kit but I think that it is only sold at Kmart because that is the only place I've seen it. Last but not least, I got an amazing Flamingo notebook. Now, I love Flamingos, I just have something for them and when I saw this notebook today I was like yep, that has my name on it.

Thank-you all so much for reading this blogpost, I hope you enjoyed it. I know I haven't posted in over a month but I'm really feeling like writing at the moment so be prepared for a few blogpost over the next few weeks. Again, I'm not trying to brag at all, I just wanted to share with you all what I got. I love you all to the Moon and back but until next time, bye.

Book Review: The Wave by Morton Rhue

Hey Chickens,
So tonight's blogpost is just going to be a simple book review. I finished reading this book a week ago and since I've started reading One of Us is Lying and holy shit, that is such a good back so when I finish that I will also write a review on that book but for now we are focusing on the book The Wave by Morton Rhue.

This book is based on a true story in a Californian high-school in 1969. The story is about a history class learning about Hitler and what he did in WW2. The history teacher decides to create The Wave to give his students the smallest real life idea of what Hitler was doing and as a classroom experiment. From there it goes out of control. It is a short book which I like, it was only 161 pages and the writing is like medium sized.

I really liked this book and I love the way it was written. When you think that the story actually happened and this was real life for someone, it gets kinda weird and crazy but fascinating. Everyone's brain would react differently and people would get really involved in The Wave while others thought it was a bad idea. I do suggest reading it, the book doesn't have any mature themes so it's good for all  ages but after reading this book I sat there and thought about it and how that event actually happened and yeah. I definitely recommend reading this book

These are the types of books I love, like not only the story but older books. This story was first published in 1981 and I just love older books, I also do love books from present times but older books are written differently and the language and sentence structure is different. These are the types of books I would love to read in school. The book I'm currently reading for school is so shit, like no-one in my class really likes it because it is like a love story but it has crime in it but not really. It is really hard to explain without telling you the name of the book but anyway. Another book that would be great in school is The Chocolate War or The Outsiders- that's another true story- because these books are interesting and actually make you think and you can learn something. But, you know, it's all good, I'll just read shitty and enjoyable books.

Thank-you all so much for reading this blogpost, I hope you enjoyed it. I just thought I would give you all a short blogpost to read on a Sunday night. I hope you all have a great week next week, tomorrow I might be going to Priceline so be sure to check back to my Instagram @em_blogs for a haul. Anyway, I love you all to Saturn and back but until next time, bye.

13 Reasons Why Season 2 + Wtf The Walking Dead *SPOLIERS*

Hey Chickens,
I'm going to say this now, I will be talking about 13 Reasons Why Season 2 which may be sensitive for any of you so please don't read this first section if you know that this isn't the right topic for you. That didn't make sense but I just want to make sure that you all aren't going to get triggered without a warning. This weekend there is going to be a few blogposts because I'm sick at the moment and I really feel inspired to write. I don't know how long this post will be, but sit down, grab yourself a drink and lets get started.

It has been two weeks since 13 Reasons Why Season 2 premiere. My Instagram has been flooded with how controversial the show is. That weekend I did watch the whole entire season and before I get into the intense shit, the first three episodes were quite shit and boring tbh but at the end of episode three the story-line became more interesting and intense. The last episode, now, I don't really want to talk about this but I am going to mention it. That was fucking intense, like very, very intense. I found it quite hard to watch honestly- I'm talking about the thing with Tyler. Also in that episode was the *almost school shooting. I live in Australia and we have quite strict gun laws and we don't have things like school shootings or any shootings except for Port Arthur which I think happened in the 90s or early 2000s. America suffers very intensely from shootings- especially school shootings- and I found it about strange that scene. This may be because I'm basically 15 but he texted that girl something, maybe a waning and wouldn't Tyler (I'm pretty sure that is his name) think that she would show people and they would call the cops. I am just glad they didn't do a school shooting because I think with everything 13rw has shown would have been just too much. I also don't fully understand why Clay and Tony didn't give him up to the cops. The shows creator has said that this stuff does happen in schools and needs to be talked about. I agree, but some of these scenes are a bit extra and I hate saying that word when I'm talking about this topic but the scenes are a bit over the top. I go to a public school and I don't know about the other year levels but in my year level there is no real bullying of any type- of course there is the mean comments but it isn't constant to anyone. I do know that bullying does happen, online and in person so this does happen and it is a problem. One of the overall things that people are saying about 13rw is that it glorifies suicide. In my opinion, I don't think that it does. I did cry a lot this season and last season and all through this season I kept Snap-chatting my closest friends in this group-chat we have about how much I appreciate them all and if anything ever happen to them to tell me and that they can trust me and all that shit because I kept thinking, what if this was one of my friends. I didn't see that Hannah got popularity after she killed herself. The tapes were also a bit confusing about how Hannah didn't mention the stuff with Alex but her tapes were like her version of a note. 
Fuck, I hope I have written this right. Please don't attack me for my opinions but please feel free to dm me on Instagram @em_blogs or leave a comment down below about your opinions. I have been thinking about if it is right to publish this and I want to. I want to share my view on this show. If you think that I haven't written this in a respectful way, tell me and I'll edit the paragraph or delete the paragraph as a whole. 

On a way lighter note, The Walking Dead. There is so many things going around now. Apparently, Andrew Lincoln is leaving The Walking Dead and so is the one of plays Maggie (I've forgotten her name). I've also read that both of them will only be in 6 episodes which is not even half a season. I've also seen that Norman Reedus has been offered a 20 million dollar deal to stay on the show which would make him one of the highest paid tv actors. I've also been trying to find out if Daniel died or no on Fear the Walking Dead. He was shot in the face but he did survive a burning cellar. I have read that there could maybe be a cross over of Daniel going to The Walking Dead but I have no idea. 

Thank-you all so much for reading this blogpost, hopefully you enjoyed it. I hope my 13rw section wasn't that triggering or too controversial. I also have literally no idea what is going on with The Walking Dead and how season 9 is going to turn out. I have about three blogpost ideas that I'm going to write up tonight, and those will be uploaded within the next few weeks. I love you all to Venus and back but until next time, bye.

Covergirl X Katy Perry Katy Kat Eyeshadow Palette

Hey Chickens,
Tonight's blogpost is going to be a classic review. I got this palette in from Coty last week and I haven't stopped using it. I just want to say thank-you so very much Coty and Covergirl for sending me this wonderful eyeshadow palette that everyone deserves to know about. A few little disclaimers before we started, yes this is gifted, I didn't use my own money to buy this but all of my opinions are my own, second of all, the photos are a bit shit because I took a few earlier this week but they were blurry and the lighting of these photos is horrible and third of all I've tried to find out if these are already out or a release date but I couldn't find anything so sorry about that. Enough bullshit, lets get into this.

First all of, the packaging. The outer layer of the palette (basically the front) is basic, just the name of the collection and the brand which is Covergirl over a white banner. The front is clear so you can actually see the eyeshadows inside which I personally like. The eyeshadow powders are in a mostly secure thing, there is no problem there.
The actually eyeshadow powder formula. Ahhh. Hands down I will say these are some of my favourite shimmer/glitter eyeshadows. They are so creamy and blend so easily. The colours look amazing on your eyes and I actually can't find anything bad to say about the formula. But, I don't like the colour range. They are just a bit all over the place- there is a gold, a green, a black, a baby/light pink, a darker pink, a dark blue, a lavender plus a few more shades. Apart from the that palette is fine. Another thing I want to add is the black formula isn't dry. Something I find with the black eyeshadows I have is that they are quite dry and hard to blend but this one is not like that.

This blogpost seems quite short but I've been reading reviews of makeup and skincare products recently and they go on forever and I was like, I don't want my posts to be like this. Realistically, you don't need an essay on if an eyeshadow is good or not. If you have any questions on this, just dm me on Instagram (em_blogs) and comment down below and I'll be happy to answer. I don't know anything about prices, I tried to find them and researched but I couldn't find anything. I do know that there is a lipgloss, another more neutral eyeshadow palette and a eyeliner. The email I got also says that this is a limited edition collection exclusive to Priceline.

I know this is a review post but I need to talk about 13 Reasons Why. I'm up to episode 12 and this season has been so good. I though the first three episodes weren't the best and I was like great a shit season but then Justin rocked up and I was like yes, omg and since then it has been so good. I've cried a bit lets just say, I find this stuff so bad and even though it is a fictional show, this happens like these are real life problems. Anyway, I can't wait to see how the season finishes.

Thanks for reading this blogpost everyone, it does mean a lot. This was a shorter post but they all can't be essays can they. I've also had Naplan this week and for some reason it just drained me. Thanks again to Coty for sending me this stunning eyeshadow palette, I can't recommend it enough. I can't wait for the last 2 episodes of season 2 of 13 Reasons Why and a new Fear the Walking Dead episode tomorrow night, it's all happening. I love you all to Pluto and back but until next time, bye.

New makeup brushes, Fear the Walking Dead and New Clothes

Hey Chickens,
My last blogpost was literally about makeup things and tv shows, so I though I would add something else into it. I'm actually currently in class when I'm writing this, so this might be a little short but it is still a blogpost. Also, its May! This year is going so fast and I'm actually really looking forward to the second half of the year because I'll be doing some very fun things. Anyway, lets get right into this blogpost.

I was just looking on the Priceline website and that is what inspired me to write this post. I had notice that there is heaps of makeup brushes that have been brought out and I wanted to share them with everyone because I did get quite excited. There is the new Models Prefer Galaxy brushes and I don't normally buy individual brushes because for me it is better value to buy them as a pack- unless they are elf brushes cause they are cheap and I'm actually thinking about buy one or two of these brushes. I haven't seen them in-store but online the colour just looks so pretty and how its kinda metallic. The price isn't actually too bad either. Real Techniques also have heaps of new brush sets and brush types. Although they are on the pricier side, the money you pay is worth the brush quality. Some of my Real Techniques brushes I've had for over a year and they are still perfectly fine. The hairs don't fall out and after you clean Real Techniques brushes they don't go weird if you know what I mean because with some makeup brushes, after you wash them the hairs of the brush go less softer or something. I really like the look of the Colour correcting 4-pack brushes, but like I said, that pack is $39.99.

Now, last week I got this new bomber jacket in from Supre which is such a beautiful dark red, burgundy colour. I also got some new Vans which are the Vans SK8-Hi in the Retro Sport Gunmetal colour and I honestly love them so much, the colour is so pretty. In Melbourne at the moment it has gotten so cold, especially today so I'm thinking about getting some new clothes because I am definitely not prepared for this bloody cold winter weather.

Fear the Walking Dead. Ahhhhh, what do I say, last week it left me heartbroken with Nicks death and this weeks episode was quite good but it's one of those episodes where you get one answer but have 10 new questions. I think the next few episodes are going to be really good, but I'll have to wait and see. Also, I've been seeing the pictures from The Walking Dead season 9 filming and what has Andrew Lincoln done to his hair. I much preferred him with the shaggy kinda curly hair. I just really hope that they didn't cut his hair because of Carl because yeah his death was sad but I think they a dragging it on a bit, like Maggie isn't going on about Glenns death in every scene. I also have some questions about both shows. Is Dwight going to be in season 9 because it wasn't very clear and I've been seeing some things on the internet, so like Austin Amelio, whats happening. Also, is Daniel alive. It would be weird if he was dead because he was right next to Nick and Nick survived. The first time it was shown Daniel died, I was actually questioning if he had died and I didn't think he did. My Mum and Brother had watched it before me and said that they thought he had just died so it might be something like that again.

Thanks so much for reading this blogpost everyone. This is a bit all over the place but I wrote a decent length blogpost in class without getting caught so that has gotta count for something. The other day I got a new Covergirl X Katy Perry palette (which is so beautiful, thanks Coty) so a review on that will be coming next week. I'm also going to see Infinity War this weekend and I'm very excited, I'll probably just do a little review of that on my Instagram. Hopefully this blogpost made your day a little better. I love you all to Venus and back but until next time, bye

Makeup Empties and TV This Week

Hey Chickens,
I have not posted in like 20 days, ekk. I have decided to post when I want to post and not put pressure on myself so it does not feel like a job and it can go back to being a hobby. Anyway, this isn’t what is blogpost is about. This post is about all of my makeup empties. The other night I went through my makeup boxes and decided to get rid of my empty products, products that are out of date and ones that I don’t use anymore. I actually have a list of about 5 or 6 products that were empty but I loved them. I also want to do a blogpost on new makeup that I love, but that will be another day. Let’s get right into this.

The first product is the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in the shade 005 Silky Beige. I love this product; it makes your face look so even and sets your makeup wonderfully. I especially love this shade because it puts colour back into your face and gives you a really nice and healthy glow. This is not that expensive either, I think it is about $10.95 from Priceline.

The second product is the Maybelline Fit Me concealer in the shade 15 Fair. I hated this concealer for my face but I loved it as an eye area concealer. It was not the best for my under eyes because I have very dark under eyes but it did help. I loved it as an eyeshadow primer and I sometimes like to put concealer around my eyebrows because I personally think it makes them look cleaner and this concealer is great for that. This concealer is also good to pack on a glitter eyeshadow.

The third product is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation and its’ matching primer. I love how full coverage that the foundation is and I originally had it in 200 Soft Beige but that was like too dark for my skin tone I found out so I’m going to have to go a few shades down a get a lighter shade. I personally think this foundation does dry my skin out a bit but it does a great job at making it look even and smooth. The primer is also great for keeping the foundation moving on your face and canceling out brush streaks. The foundation also has really good flash back.

Another ‘collection’ from Rimmel I love is the Wake Me Up Foundation and Concealer. This concealer is the absolute best for my under eyes. I get the shade Soft Beige because I prefer and darker under eye concealer and this is the best. It makes you look so awake, does not do anything to your skin like dry it out and gives you a nice healthy glow. I also loved the foundation equally and when I buy it again, I will be sure to get the right shade. When I brought this foundation, I brought it a shade up from what I used to get so it was way too dark and I couldn’t use it properly without having a face and neck skin tone difference. The only problem with these products is they have sparkles in them, so in photos with flash and some lighting you can see that.

This has nothing to do with makeup but I wanted to do a little t.v review for this week. For anyone that watches Home and Away the guy who plays Lewis was on it and the girl who plays Ricki is becoming a new character. I was just reading through this and realized I didn’t say who Lewis and Ricki are, I meant those characters out of H2O. The Fear the Walking Dead season 4 premier was pretty good, the ending was really good though. I think next weeks episode will be really good. The Walking Dead, ughhhh. Now, I love The Walking Dead and I always will but 2 seasons have been building up to that shitty war, I think it was a major cop out. The shows writers need to get their heads together like they’ve completely changed Negans character from the start of Season 7 and Darrel not killing Dwight, he has been going on for a whole season how he was going to kill Dwight and….. like ahhhhhhhhh. I’m still really annoyed that Simon died because I love Steven Ogg and I loved Simons character and Dwight doesn’t have anymore storylines so hes like out of the show, like whats happening. And then there is the whole Maggie vs Rick, which I don’t even know. And they are compeltly dragging out this Carl storyline, if I see Michonne somewhere sulking about Carl one more time, I’m gonna lose my shit.
On another note, I went to go see Rampage this week. A third because I liked the look of it and two thirds because Jeffery Dean Morgan was in it. I’m not usually the biggest fan of action movies but this one was actually really good. I also really want to be that alligator, he’s like a badass. I would recmond going to see that because it wasn’t actually that bad. Another movie I really want to see is A Quiet Place, it looks right up what I like.

Now, blogposts. Like I mentioned before I want to write a blogpost about new makeup that I just love the look of. I also got some books from Booktopia last week so I might make a blogpost on that. Mothers Day is also coming up so I might do a little gift guide but I’ll see about that. I do have a few ideas for blogpost so tonight I might write up a few of them and post another blogpost Sunday or something like that.

Thank-you all so much for reading this blogpost. I know that this doesn't really have a 'theme; but I quite liked it. Also sorry of there is spelling and grammer mistakes, I'm quite tired tonight so sorry about that. Hopefully you enjoyed this post. I love you all the way to Mars and back but until next time, bye.
