Some old looks

Hi guys. So I thought I'd just go through my photos and post some looks from the past few months. I don't think I've posted these before, but apologies if I have. I'll have a couple more posts of old looks and then I'll start afresh. I don't even like all of these, but I'm putting them out there anyway. Enjoy!

Personal update

Hi guys! Miss me? I've missed you all so much. So the point of this post is to let you all know I'm still here, despite being a terribly neglectful blogger.

I've been working! Yay! Not full time, but freelancing, so I'm working full-time hours on a casual basis. I've had work to do after hours as well, so my poor little blog has fallen by the wayside as a result. Sigh.

I plan to return real soon once I get myself organised. Promise!
Olgie.

Eyeshadow: Smokey eye with Naked 3

Let me begin with another apology. Since my return from Japan, I haven't felt like blogging, or really doing much with makeup at all. I've been job hunting, which has taken up huge amounts of my time and has also left me feeling a little down and therefore uninterested in makeup. However, there have actually been a couple of positions available in my field this week, so I've got some applications in. Fingers crossed!

One event that made me get my makeup out was my high school reunion. I can't believe how little everyone had changed. It was kind of freaky, really. It was a fun night out regardless and it made me forget my troubles. I did this look using the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, plus my everyday matte black eyeshadow from Stila.

I'm back!

Hi everyone! I've returned from my trip to Japan. I'm feeling a little jetlagged, but I'll be fine in a couple days. I did buy some makeup while I was over there so I'll take photos of that and get organised (and catch up on all your blogs!) in the next couple of days. I hope you all had a wonderful January! I look forward to seeing what you all got up to.
Olgie.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2014 is a great year for you all. 2013 wasn't the best for me, so here's hoping 2014 will be a better year. I had a great time at a friend's place last night. I trust you all partied hard and enjoyed yourselves too!

Here are a few photos from our big NYE fireworks display in Sydney (taken from www.news.com.au).

Happy holidays everyone!

I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus or whatever you celebrate! Spend time with loved ones and have a safe and wonderful holiday. Things will be quiet here for a while as I'm off to Japan on January 3, but I hope to keep you all posted while I'm over there.

Nails: some recent manis

Hey guys. I've got some recent manicures to show you today. They're all over the place in terms of colours and formulas! I'll start with what's on my nails right now. First is a totally in-your-face mani with an almost neon green (two coats) with a layer of dark green shimmery crackle polish on top. Finished off with topcoat, of course.

Bright green with dark green crackle. No, I'm still not over the whole crackle thing.
