These 5 new items above are amazing for anyone to add to their makeup collection.  These products alone can create a beautiful natural and sheer makeup look.

1. Too Faced Lip and Cheek Tint in Poppy - This product is so good, it looks great as a blush applied with a stippled foundation brush or as a lip colour.  It is quite pigmented when applied on the cheeks so apply lightly and build the colour if needed.  It gives you a beautiful lush colour that looks healthy and natural. 

2. The Smashbox Halo Highlighting Wand in Gold - Wow this product is perfect for that golden, dewy makeup finish.  I LOVE any highlighting product but this is one of the best I have tried.  The golden colour is a nice change from the pearl or bluish toned highlighters that are also on the market.  It is easily applied with your finger or the brush on the end of the wand.  I put it on the top of my cheek bones, under my eye brows, on the upper bow of my lip and a tiny amount on the ridge of the nose and forehead.  

3. The Smashbox High Definition Concealer - I don't normally use concealer but thought I would give this one a go.  It is really lightweight, fluid and easy to apply.  I put it under my eye stretching from beside the top of my nose across to the edge of my eye and diagonally to the bottom of my nose - creating a triangle shape.  This helps with creating a more contoured look. 

4. Garnier BB Cream in Light - This is my new favourite product.  I am in love with this, and it's only around $10.  This is such a great day time product, it's sheer, blendable, dewy and gives you a nice glow.  I like to apply this over the concealer with some ID bare minerals powder in light over my nose, eye, chin and centre on the forehead.  

5. Kit Cosmetics Foundation Sponge - This is great to roll over your face with the palm of your hand to set your foundation.  It helps give a flawless, airbrushed appearance.  

 For best results with makeup apply St Tropez bronzing mouse the night before to your face and body and wash off in the morning.  This gives your face colour and radiance once your makeup is applied.  It also stops that patchy makeup look.

I will always love my opinion they are timeless and can make an outfit look styled.  Today I wore this little Mink Pink dress with my favourite Wrangler denim jacket.  This jacket is a staple in my wardrobe, it is the perfect cut, length, wash and shape - I find it hard to come across an ideal staple item like this.

A new year and new beginnings....start your year with positivity and enthusiasm.  This time of the year is exciting and motivating.  We should begin to refocus ourselves and our goals in life.  Take a moment to look at who we have become and analyse ourselves to ensure we are on the path in which we want to be heading.  I like to start the new year by doing the following. 

1. Writing a remember list.   This is a list of things that you feel are of value and importance to you.  They are usually to do with your state of mind.  This is my remember list for 2013:

2. A vision board.  This is a board filled with words and images that inspire you to work hard and stay focused on what you want in life.  We often have a picture in our minds of where we want to be in the future but seeing a physical version of this each day is really beneficial.  Fill the board with a variety of elements.  Some people are too concerned with the materialistic and physical things, try to fill the board with emotions, relationships and health related items and let the materialistic images fill up the remaining space.  After all your relationships, emotional state and health are all far more important than a new car or a higher paid job.  Without them you can't enjoy the benefits of the materialistic.

3. A miscellaneous notebook.  This notebook has several purposes; a diary, ideas space, creative outlet, motivational tool and a memory.  I prefer a blank sketchpad without lines.  Ensure you get a nice quality book as this is something you will keep and want to use for the year.  Record your goals in here, put in inspiring quotes, images and ideas you may have for your school, uni, work or business plans.  This a nice personal record of your mind's progression throughout the year.  You don't need to be creative or artistic each person will have an individualised book perfectly suited to who they are.  

I hope these things help you to start the new year with enthusiasm and optimism for a wonderful year ahead.  Remember...

Today I spent the day at the coast, I'm still finding this weather a little in between, it doesn't feel as hot as it usually is this time of year.  Regardless of the season, I find it so easy to add an extra element to any outfit by wearing a scarf.  This one today is Witchery, the pom poms and aztec print mixed together have created a perfect scarf.
