There really is no better way to spend a late, lazy Sunday morning than being nestled up in a cozy cafe with a hot coffee and tasty food - besides being in bed, of course! Since quitting meat I am constantly on the hunt for any restaurant that does vegan food really, really well - and this is one of them! With an exclusively vegan menu, you literally can't go wrong.

Kiehl's is a brand, as a student balling on a budget, I was always reluctant to splurge on. Something about my eye area and skincare sends me into a tailspin though, so I found myself with not only one but two Kiehl's eye creams in my stash. My eye area is what I'm self conscious about. Even if everyone else says they can't notice, all I can see when I look in the mirror is my dark, under eye circles. No concealer will mask them, so my obsession with eye treatments began to try and tackle the problem from it's source.

Moving back to Melbourne after eight months in Paris was an adjustment period I couldn't have prepared for. Being back here gave me a burning motivation to keep busy and get my life back on track after what felt like an eight month holiday. I got my studies in order, got a job and reconnected with everyone I had been missing while I was abroad. Now, two months later, I can safely say I have settled back into the rhythm of my Melbourne life, but in the best possible way.

Regardless of whether you're for or against, the word vegetarian or vegan instantly brings up an opinion. I have been received with both praise and negativity, depending on who I tell, and just the journey of "coming out" as a vegetarian has been an experience in itself. I was reluctant to make this post as I am scared of slipping up, and there is a lot of hate thrown towards people who proclaim a "diet" and then go back on it.

Due to my long break from blogging while trekking Paris, I had a backlog of photographs that I had intended to turn into posts but I never got around to it. On my first day in Paris I uploaded a mini pharmacy haul, and this was the makeup counterpart! Arriving on European soil I found a plethora of new products that I had never seen before from brands I love. I tried to keep my composure and only pick up things I knew were going to be amazing so I didn't blow my budget in my first week, which would have been a tragedy.

Provocative title, non? But in all seriousness, I definitely tend to turn to apps when it comes to making a habit, breaking a habit or for general self improvement needs - the life of a phone addict. There are some great ones out there and some not-so-great ones that seem great for the first five minutes until they ask you to subscribe to keep using - non merci. I've tried them all, trust me, and I've weeded through the good and the bad to help bring you this curation of the very best apps the app store has to offer.

'What's in my bag' posts and videos have a very special place in my heart as they were my first introduction to the online beauty community. I remember back in 2006 (for my sanity, let's not even reflect on how long ago that was) I would come home from school and spend my time watching these kinds of videos - namely rewatching as YouTube definitely didn't have the variety it does now back in the day. There is some addictive quality about them, and I'm sure everyone reading this has a similar story about their introduction to the beauty community, or simply an addiction to watching them!
