the lovely tagged me to do this - aswell as - both girls blogs are amazing , so you should go check them out !

Rules : List ten things that make you happy , try and do one today & then pass it on too ten people .

1 ~ my family , my boyfriend , my puppy & my best friend . they always make me smile and anyday with them is a good day .

2 ~ clean things , im abit obsessive . but i love clean sheets / clothes / flat / car WHATEVER . lifes better if things are clean .

3 ~ the beach . dosnt matter if im jumping in waves , having a picnic , laying in the sand dunes or just sunbathing . i enjoy it , something so soothing about the beach .

4 ~ shopping . yes it makes me happy . its something i do atleast twice a week . i like new things .

5 ~ days when my kidney dosnt bother me . and im able to just enjoy life . it has stopped me from achieving so many things , so the rare day when its not sore i treasure .

6 ~ makeup / hair / shoes . fashion is my number one . but these are my number two faves .

7 ~ watching dvds . being sick i do this ALOT . its good to take my mind off things .

8 ~ milo / hot chocolates . YUM . so nice .

9 ~ laying in the sun or on the bed, reading / listening to music . relaxing .

my oh my ,

peoples blogs on here are just too frikin cute , iv also started watching youtube videos . swalkermakeup & pixiewoo are my favs at the moment , anyone got any reccomendations ?

iv ordered some blush & bronzer / highlighting powder off the internet . theres a looong list of things im planning on buying over the next few months -

1 . revlon colorstay foundation in nude .
2. mac 190 foundation blush .
3. revlon concealer ( i havnt been sleeping so i have the worst black eyes YUCK ) ,
4. translucent powder for around $15 , im thinking it will be good for days when im feeling sick and blah , i dunno .
5. new eyeliner
6. pressed powder .
then i was thinking eyebrows - i want to try filling them in ( it seems to make peoples makeup look really polished ? )

today i went shopping , to find makeup . i couldnt find a thing worth buying - right now im happy though because the things i want online are much nicer , and cheaper too .

i tryed lipsticks on my hand, they all suck . i have little lips . i think dark colors will just make them look smaller . i really like kristen calavaris nude lip on the hills -
do you know how hard it is to find a nude lipstick ! its crazy !

anyway lovlies . so delightful in the wonderful world of makeup .
hope you all had the best weekend , i did . my boyfriend brought me home a wii , with mario cart and sports . too cute ! i then went to layby wii fit plus - with the balance board . anyway i was at the laybuy counter , and he was like oh dont worry , ill just get it for you !!

day one wearing blush .

it took two tries to get it right , mainly had a problem with too much powder getting on the brush , so i figured if i tapped the brush and then applied it it worked well . sorry that im laying down / been sick again allday so i was resting ^ - ^ makeup is fun to do when your bored , isnt it ? might go shopping again tomorrow , depending on how i am . have a voucher to spend ! from christmas , this has got to be the longest time a voucher has been in my purse, usually its gone within the week . LOL .
oh well anyway, makeup i used was
- maybelline dream liquid mousse
- maybelline mineral power natural perfecting concealer
- smashbox blush / illuminator
- L'oreal bronzer
- maybelline kohl eyeliner ( i wear this everyday, it makes my eyes prettyful )
- maybelline colossal volum' mascara
- my new rimmel smokey eyes set
i still havnt brought lipstick , shamefully i only have blistex on . hahaha .
what do you think ? any tips ? my boyfriend noticed my change in makeup and told me i was amazingly beautiful - but that i always was . cute :)

you are amazing ,

every one of you who reads this , i hope you know i think your amazing ^-^

my kidney hurts today . im in bed watching DVD's and on here .
its a pretty crap summer day, cloudy and ew . + my tan is fading .

iv decided i dont need primer . i dont need pressed powder as i have mineral powder .
i do however need some blush , im pretty pale most days . i think i would like some bronzer, and some Benefit High Beam - the cheapest i can get it is 6O$ it might have to wait awhile huh ! and i was also thinking lipstick , pretty pink . i have a bright red one in my makeup cabinet i found today :)
i also need concealer, (in a stick, or liquid ??) and some eyeshadows + brushes .

i was thinking , my foundation dosnt last long. by lunchtime its pretty worn off . is it just a crap foundation or is there something im not using to stop it loosing its staying power.

so here in New Zealand , OPI is tres expensive . they sell for around 25$ a bottle . online, i can get two bottles for 35$ - including postage . now i just have to choose which colours i would like . iv heard so many people rave about mod about you so im pretty sure thats one . any suggestions ?

im also on the lookout for some makeup brushes . right now - i use my fingers . again , alot of people use brushes and they seem to have better coverage . i think ill also invest in some illumimating powder , and some primer .
any must have products i should get ?
currently i use foundation , mineral powder , eyeliner & mascara . '
i need some help , to start my makeup collection .

so , i made a blog . tomorrow, maybe the next day when im feeling a little better ill post some pictures up . iv been looking around at other peoples blogs - mostly makeup / fashion ones ill admit , and iv decided that pictures make everything a ton more pretty .
about me ? im from New Zealand , Tauranga - by the beach . and i love it here .
i take tons of photos , our bedroom wall is covered in snapshots iv taken .
i like makeup , it used to be something id throw on before i left the house , but as of late i have been trying different products and - shock horror - wearing different eyeshadows .
fashion is what i love . weekly , i spend between 5O$ - 1OO$ on new items . including shoes and assesories .
i also love hello kitty , i think shes cute .
