As you’ve been surfing your social media, specifically Instagram, you might have come across makeup videos featuring new looking brushes usually dubbed “oval brushes”. They’re very popular and brands are racing to make their own version, similarly to happened with the Beauty Blender.
After seeing a billion videos of these oval brushes being used and producing beautiful, flawless results, I was really curious and wanted a try some as well. I don’t need to tell you that getting anything brand new in Australia is annoying; there are some local brands that are starting to bring them out but they either sell out so fast or burn your pocket out quick-fast. Nude By Nature had brought out a set exclusively through Priceline and I sadly missed out on those. I was kicking myself.
Then on a trip to TK Maxx, I found this set of five oval brushes from an in-house brand and took them home to try…
So you might have heard me harp on about our impending house moving in a few weeks but it looks like that miiiight not be happening just yet.
Is this good news? Who knows!
Does this mean I can finally get down to business and write some reviews? Actually, it does!
Remember you can find us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and now Tumblr!
We have a Tumblr!
Yes, we have had some personal stuff to attend to, but while we go about some things we thought that posting random weird crap to our Tumblr will keep us all together. So if you have one please follow us, message, send your tips!
Spooning session starts tomorrow.
Hey, everyone! I hope this week is treating you all well.
We just wanted to let you all know we’re just taking a few days to revamp the site, do some changes to make it a bit cleaner and spiffy while we continue working on some posts for you. So come back next week, we’ll keep the drinks cold

There’s a lot I want to do in my life. I’m not just a grumpy, ranting cynic, I also have things I would really love to accomplish, a bucket list (nice tie-in, right?). Own a Vivienne Westwood piece? On the list. Go to an awards ceremony? Yup. Swim with the sharks? Love them! I even have a Pinterest board of the things I’d like to do!
On the flipside though, I have things I never, ever want to do. Most stuff I will say isn’t on my bucket list, but if the opportunity arises, I might give it a shot. However, there’s stuff you hear about and just nope about. You might have heard people call a list of these “nopes” their Anti-Bucket List.
I was telling a friend of mine I’m going to do this post and she was really confused. “Why the hell are you doing an anti-bucket list of stuff you never want to do? It’s really counterproductive, isn’t it?” You might be thinking that too and, honestly, I was initially going to do it as a nice, ‘get to know me’ filler while I write other posts. Yet once I started, I realised that I’m actually more open to experiences than most people thought I was, including myself.
So, I’ll show you mine, then you show me yours…
There’s something strange but really fun about peeking into other people’s bags. Some are packed with receipts and old to-do lists (The Evil Assistant), other’s are organised to the nines (my grandma), some are so damn huge yet only house sunglasses and a wallet.
While I don’t just go snooping in other people’s bags, I do like “What’s in my bag” posts, although most of the time they’re just the usual crap in there. That’s why I decided to make the first Inside My Bag one that can be helpful to any modern performer, not just actors.
Some things are pretty obvious while some are overlooked and can be a lifesaver when you’re running to an audition. I’ve kept this list pretty unisex, however, if you think there’s something missing (mascara etc) that you always want to have, remember to put it in your little tool bag or whatever you want to house everything in your car.
