As everyone that knows me would know by now I love animals and I support every single brand that is animal friendly and hasnt been tested on animals. I live on a farm and yup you might say I am that crazy country gal whos best friends are animals- cause it is totally true!

So a brand I want to bring to light is BYS..

BYS is a beautiful beauty brand that recently officially became PETA APPROVED and is dedicated to the fair and ethical treatment of those furry fuzzy friends we all love to love.

If youre anything like me in high school you owned some sort of BYS product and I know I had a killer BYS nail polish collection going on! 

And now I am older I always screwed my face up when even thinking about using BYS on my now, a lot older face. I just remember it being a kiddy brand in which you brought products to have a play around and experiment. And ever since high school I never really heard about the brand again.

Well wasnt I shocked when I was invited to the official launch party of PETA APRROVING BYS products? Everything had changed and they were in an incredible league of their own with their affordability and just pure quality. Some of the products I got to play with were almost if not exact dupes of much higher end brands, I was astounded!

I had no idea BYS was such a big brand and is actually available in 25+ countries!!! Holy moly! And in some countries it is so big that it has stand-alone stores like M.A.C has for us.

Now, how could I make a post and not sure with you my Top 3 Faves from BYS (mainly all newbies but totally worth flashing the cash for.. and then stocking up in case there’s a zombie apocalypse… cause a girls gutta stay looking beautiful during dreadful times) haha. No but in all seriousness these three products are divine!

Best part about these to? They work for me, but if they don’t work for you, you didn’t break the bank buying them.

Number 1 – Nude Exposed $29.95

This awesome palette feature 24 expertly chosen matte and shimmery eyeshadows that can be used both casually and formally.

I love this palette and it will be coming with me next year when I will be travelling a whole bunch.

Number 2- Essentials Contour, Brow and Eyeshadow $19.95

I love, love, love this palette and it has got to be one of my all time faves at the moment. I’m head over heels with the fact almost my whole face is covered in one palette creating a heck load more space in my beauty case.

This palette includes 2 brow powders in different shades, a brow wax to keep those caterpillars in place, 4 contouring and highlighting powers and 9 matte and shimmer eyeshadows to finish it off- doesn’t get much better then that really.. does it?

Number 3- Highlighting Trio Palette $7.95

I’m not even going to lie here, this highlighter (well the really gold one on the far right has got to be my all time favourite highlighter, EVER! It is so easy to build in to a popping cheekbone and reflect those rays, but also easy to use sparingly for a subtle glow.

You actually need to see these pigments for yourself, I tried swatching but guys, I promise I wouldn’t have done the product any justice putting them up.

Ok.. so I lied, I couldn’t just stop at 3 and needed to do a cheeky and sneak this little beauty in there, cause it is worth a mention that’s for sure.

Wildcard- HD Setting Spray $9.95

This magic spray keeps my makeup in place all day long, and night long if I wanted it to. I did a naughty one night last week and went to sleep with my makeup on.. woke up like I was ready for a big morning out, everything was perfectly in place- bar the dribble on my cheek haha.

I will be taking this miracle spray to Bali to realllllly test out just how well it can make my makeup stay :P

* DISCLAIMER AKA boring stuff..
I was sent these products but have not been paid by the brand or any agency for this review. All opinions are my own and are completely honest- no sugar coating here lovlies J

Insta Worthy Cocktails for Mother's Day

The perfect drinks....... to bring the inner little girl out in us Mummie's

It seems everyone is turning to Pinterest or Instagram for inspiration these days, and we crave those insta worthy food and drink shots that just look as delicious to the eye as they do the mouth.

So I thought this Mother’s Day I would perfect the perfect treat for myself (alcoholic of course) as these sorts of occasions is when I tend to have a couple of drinks. I am not much of a drinker; I think I turned myself off from my teen years for life.  So I prefer a drink that isn’t too strong and have been leaning towards liqueurs and those types of drinks lately as their alcohol percentages seem to be a lot lower.

I have partnered with Chambord (no this is not a paid post I was just gifted the beverage to play around with and try and create some banging cocktails for all the girls out there.

My inspo, the girls fairy garden. Yup, I know not really the first place you look for inspo on an alcoholic beverage but hey, it seems to have worked this time.

Unicorn Potty (taste just like Fruit Tingles)
¾ Glass of Lemonade
¼ Glass of Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur
Small handful of mixed berries (we used frozen so it was like ice).
Grape Fairy Floss (optional)
Sprinkle of 100s and 1000’s

The It’s Winter.. but I miss Summer Cocktail (pretty sure this cocktail would have been created already and has a professional name, but let’s roll with it).

¾ glass of Lemonade
¼ glass of Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur
Mixed Frozen Berries
(that’s it, simple).

You can have so much fun with Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur as it is a great base to many great flavour combinations; I have had a play lately and have been able to sneak it into just about any drink.
*Another awesome tip, if you don’t like the bitterness of champagne or chardonnay then ask for a shot of Chambord in there, it sweetens up the deal making it a sweet but not too sweet drinkable drink.

Yes, I am now going to be a responsible grown-up (straightens collar) and remind you to drink responsibly.
