I (Finally) Went to Dracula’s!

draculas-terrorbyte

Recently, a family member had celebrated their birthday at one of the Gold Coast’s most iconic institutions, Dracula’s Cabaret Show & Dinner. The cool-looking place that I’m sure the Addams or Munsters would have loved is sandwiched in between the newly jazzed up Pacific Fair shopping centre andĀ  The Star Gold Coast (formerly Conrad Jupiters Casino). Every local has driven past and every local has been to Dracula’s.

Except me.

I had lived here most of my life here and never once been to Dracula’s. But now I have and thought I’d let you know a bit about it!

Hey guys, what a crazy week it’s been around here!

I wanted to do anotherĀ instalment of beauty misconceptions since it’s been a while and heaven knows there’s some bad info being touted as fact or a liiiiittle off the mark.

Let’s dive in!

DIY Drawer Dividers!

 

While I was working on another post I was getting ready to clean up my vanity. I actually wanted to go to my local IKEA and grab some drawer dividers, but it’s kind of hard to get to by myself, so I decided to try my luck at making some.

At first, I was going to use cereal boxes but I realised quickly they would be too flimsy and thin. I did have a cardboard box I was going to use, but the box had been used for moving and I felt dirty every time I touched it.
However, I was looking at some of my photography equipment and I saw a white foam board, one you can find at Kmart or dollar stores. It had a dent in it and was marked a bit, which is why I didn’t use it any longer.

I decided a little after starting to cut out the pieces that I should actually put it up on here in case any of you want to make your own!

How To Actually Style Your Rental (Without Pissing Anyone Off)

cover-rental
I can’t tell you how sick and tired I am of looking on Pinterest, getting sucked into some damn article that tells me the same styling tips that I can do which I actually absolutely can not. I am absolutely not allowed to change any fixtures, any stupid-ass temporary flooring or cabinetry. At all. I’m really lucky though because we’re the first people to live in this new, modern house.

But you might be so lucky. You might be living in an older place but still can’t change any lighting or fixtures, or you can do it to one area but not another. Look it’s a weird rental game out there no matter where you live, and it’s important to make it feel comfortable for yourself and anyone else you might be living with.

So here are some things that have helped me in the rental places I’ve lived.

Priceline Holo-Haul!

Priceline kicked my ass yet again with makeup sales before Christmas and I thought I’d share my surprisingly hologrammy buys! I know hologram is everywhere and it seems like late to the party, but I’ve been on the fence with a lot of products I’ve seen and if they would look good on my textured, oily goblin face.

I decided that since the sales were really good, I should at least grab some items and show them to you! I haven’t really tested these products yet to give a concrete review, but I have some swatches (albeit terrible camera work because shiny things always photograph well).

My Penpal Is A Killer: The Hunt A Killer Subscription Box

HAK-logo

Mysteries, thrillers, crime, I live for it. Ho boy, if you saw my Netflix ‘Recently Watched’ you might wonder if I have any joy in my life. Blame my mum and her macabre interests rubbing off on my sister and me.
I found out about this subscription almost a year ago while compiling a list of boxes I’d like to review for the blog. After jotting down a full page of boxes (almost all of them I realised much later don’t even ship to Australia) I found a link to Hunt A Killer, an immersive, on-going spiral of intrigue and insanity (my opinion there), where you’re teamed with a penpal who sends you cryptic shit and basically puts a lot of trust in you, but more about that later..
