When I was a teenage, I would spend hours in front of the mirror, after school, playing around with all different make up. Experimenting with colours and designs. The way different colours and products could change your face. That is what lead me to start a Make Up course when I left school.
I don’t wear make up all that often anymore. I think it’s a mix of just letting my skin breathe and not being bothered. Most days, if I put any make up on, I do my brows and put on mascara. I still have days though, where I decide to pull out my make up and play around.
I only used a bit of powder as my foundation, as I had no plans on going out. If I was doing a full face I’d conceal under my eyes and my pimples on my chin. But I don’t think it’s overly needed. One of the plus sides of not wearing foundation much means my skin is pretty clear.

Would you like to see some more make up looks?
Nyata – Indah top – $139.95 | Nyata is a new to my Plus Size Aussie label, they have some amazing things, but I’m LOVING this top. Their clothing goes up to a size 30!!
Lime Crime - Lip Stain in Wicked – $19.99 | I have a fair few LC products, which I love, but I’ve yet to try their Velvetines. I’m in love with all the colours in the recent Clueless Witch collection, but I don’t know if I could pull off the black. This colour though, YES!
Pin Up Girl Clothing – Jenny Skirt in Neverland Print – $98 | My ultimate DREAM PIECE! I’m such a HUGE fan of Peter Pan for many reasons, I even used to go by the online name of ‘Natatree Darling’ for many years. This skirt is now available to a 4x, so I’m basically just weeping over the fact I really shouldn’t buy it. (My brain keeps saying “But you’re trying to save Natalie!”)
EveryBearJewel on Etsy – White topaz & Silver dog ring – $86.34 | It’s a ring that’s in the style of a dog! I’m really missing having a dog. I miss Frodo so much, but now i’m really feeling the ‘lack of dog loneliness’.
ASOS – Unicorn Earrings – $15.69 | Pretty unicorn earrings, ’nuff said!
Zatchels - Pink York Rose Saddle Bag – £60 | Remember when Satchels where such a rage!? I never got one, though I wanted one. I’m loving the print on this new collection, and the super cute saddle bag size.
ASOS Curve - Fluro Floral Maxi Dress – $127.45 | How amazing is this dress? The colours in it are my fave. I don’t usually like high necklines, but I’d make an exception for this dress!
Mel – Raspberry Heart Heels –
Was $75.00 – $37.50 | I may have a thing for heart shoes! And they are on sale!!
Rollie – Derby heart shoes – $139.95 | Rollie are another new to me brand, but how cute and comfy do these shoes look!?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
So, it’s officially 2014! Yay! I took a bit of a blogging break over the past 2 weeks whilst my man friend has been here and I have to say, it’s been nice. I didn’t realise just how much of my time revolved around blogging! I’m back from my mini hiatus though, and what better way then for the first Aussie Curves theme of the year!
I’m totally cheating with this theme though, I didn’t actually wear this outfit on New Years. I spent NYE at a friends party and was advised to not wear anything that i’d want to get ruined, turns out they hired sumo suits! Luckily I dressed comfortably though because I ended up getting sick, without even drinking!
This is what I WOULD have worn, if I’d been going out on the town, or a fancier party. I’m still loving the monochrome trend, but decided to add some colour in.
I love clashing red & blue together! The slight sparkle in the cardigan and the pretty flower crown just adds that little glitz.
You know one of the great things about this dress? It has pockets! I just LOVE a dress that has pockets!
