♡Wantable Beauty Box - Review Part Two♡

Hi again guys! Welcome to October, my favourite month! So as promised today I am going to show you guys what I received from the Wantable Accessories box that I ordered last month.
Their communication was really good, they emailed me when they were shipping it as they ship the boxes at a particular time of the month and gave me a link so that I could track it. I received the box a lot sooner than I expected, after they sent me the email telling me that it was on its way I received the box in a weeks time.
Here is what the box looked like:
It was a lot smaller and a lot lighter than I expected.

I thought that the message on the side was really cute, sorry about my terrible nails!
Everything was protected really well inside, as it was all stored between two big pieces of storage foam and each piece of jewellery was individually stored. It also came with a sheet of paper with the details of my purchase. On it it said what my preferences were when I did the quiz when ordering my products and a reminder that I will never receive products that I have put into the dislike category. It also had the following message:
This month our boxes are packed to the brim with style! You'll find edgy metallics in the form of watches, architectural cuffs, chic rings, and trendy earrings. Stunning jewel tones are paired with vintage-inspired designs in drop-earrings, statement necklaces, and bold bracelets. We've also combined whimsical pieces with chic styling for unique pieces that you'll love to add to your collection. Everyone's unique so try combining pieces for a look all your own: pair necklaces of different lengths ad don't be afraid to mix metals and colours. Pile on a mix of modern and vintage-inspired pieces for a nod to the past while still looking perfectly on trend.

Here is what I received:
Kendyl Earrings
Retail Price - $28
"The Kendyl Earrings are certainly not for the faint of heart! These dramatic drop earrings feature three tiers of silvery, featherlike details. Style tip: These beauties will definitely make a statement. To tone them down , wear your hair down and complement them with a bold red lip."
These are my favourite piece that I received! I've already worn them a kazillion times and am just in love with them. I love dramatic earrings and these are definitely my style so I am really happy with these.
Gelsey Necklace
Retail Price - $28
"The Gelsey is a delicate mixed metal necklace that will give you the perfect unique look! Style tip: Wear this neutral toned necklace with a bold blouse for a great colour combo!"
I've got to admit that I haven't actually worn this yet. I like the necklace as I think it's extremely unique and interesting but I haven't really worn anything as of yet that I think would complement the necklace but I am really eager to try it out! It's not 100% my style but hey, I am definitely willing to give it a go.
 Johnnie Bracelet - Gold
Retail Price - $24
"The Johnnie Bracelet has fun bicycle chain links! Style Tip: Perfect for layering!"
When I pulled this out of the box I have to say I was a bit disappointed, just because I am not always the biggest fan of gold but then after a little while it grew on me. It is definitely a unique piece of jewellery and I think that the links are really cool. I have really skinny wrists so it's hard for me to wear bracelets sometimes so I will definitely be layering this one.
So that's everything I received! I think I will try ordering the box again one day but next time I will try out the make up box. This was definitely lots of fun to do as I was interested as to see what they would put together for me and considering the retail prices of the jewellery it was worth the money. This idea is definitely fun to do ever so often but personally I wouldn't subscribe for once a month as I would prefer to have more control over the jewellery purchases I make on a regular basis.
What do you guys think of the pieces?

♡Birthday Wishlist♡

Hey guys! So it's my birthday in two and a half weeks so I thought I would share with you guys just what is on my wish list at the moment. Who knows, maybe it will help you make decisions on purchases you're trying to make yourself, I thought it would be fun!

Right now I'm really wanting quite a few different MAC lipsticks but these are the ones I managed to limit it to:
I also have my eyes on these shades too:
What do you think of these shades? I'd love to hear about any colours that you wear or are interested in! Also, I'm trying to decide whether Rebel and Hang-Up are too similar in shade or not, what do you think and which do you prefer?
I'm also loving the look of the Real Techniques brushes at the moment, I just can't choose which set I need more between the core collection for the base eg foundation and concealer or the starter set for your eyes:
Next is something that I've wanted ever since I was a little girl, a Polaroid Camera! These days you can get different colours as well, such as purple, pastel pink and pastel blue.

Something else I have wanted for a long time is a summer robe and Victoria's Secret have a great selection at the moment, the only issue is that I can't decide on which colour I prefer the most! Which one do you guys like the most out of these colours? Sorry for the pixelation in some of the images.

Iconic Pink Stripe

So they're the main things that I am looking at at the moment, as you can see I'm feeling very girly! I feel like spoiling myself this year because I never really make a big deal about my birthday. You can probably also tell that I'm quite indecisive haha.  What do you guys think? Is there anything you've got your eye on at the moment?

Also, I received my Wantable box in the mail the other day so as promised I will write a review on that in the next couple of days.

♡Issues With Robin Thickes 'Blurred Lines'♡

Hi guys! This post is just short and sweet but I just wanted to share these video with you guys just in case you haven't seen them. They pretty much sum up my opinion of Robin Thicke and his song Blurred Lines.
If after seeing these videos you still don't understand the issue I have with it, comment below and I'll write a more detailed blog post.

♡Human Rights Victories♡

Hi guys! Sorry for being a bit MIA at the moment but I was sick for a while and trying to catch up with my uni work, I'm going to be fairly busy the next couple of weeks because it's that time of year when they pile assignment after assignment onto you but I will try and be as good as I can when it comes to blogging!

Now I know my blog posts are a mixture of the serious and the not so serious so today I thought I would just briefly talk about something that I thought needed to be heard.
I know that fighting for human rights can be tough and sometimes we hear the bad news more than we heard the good, which makes it seem like the bad news is never-ending but I wanted to let you know that there are good things happening out there. There are good things happening every day and I thought I should let you know a few of the great things that have happened recently.

I'm sure a large majority of you have seen the fairly recent reports about the terrible and terrifying deaths of civilians in Syria and Egypt. Also, with the Australian election coming up (for the Australians out there reading this that can vote) like me, you may be feeling uninspired and annoyed about the Australian political parties using asylum seekers as pawns in their game to score points for their party, all at the expenses of those who are trying to come to our country for a better life.
Although sometimes it may feel like we can't do much, we have to remember that, in fact, our actions can and do make a difference. That's why I wanted to share some good news with you guys!
After an overwhelming amount of support a 15-year-old girl, who was raped in the Maldives and who had originally been sentenced 100 lashes for 'fornication', has had her punishment overturned completely! You can read all about it here:

The Government has begun to remove asylum seeker families who have children, from the Manus Island Detention Centre. 70 detainees have been relocated from the appalling conditions on Manus Island and are reportedly being relocated to Christmas Island. There is more written here:

An Omani activist, an activist for the Arab state Oman in southwest Asia, who had been held in solitary confinement for 23 days has been released without charge after supporters wrote letters to the authorities calling for his safety and freedom. You can read more here:

Unfortunately, human rights victories like these don't always make headlines but they do happen, we are able to make a change and help those who aren't as fortunate as we are.
Amazing accomplishments like these are happening every day all over the world.

If you want to help make a difference please check out Amnesty International who are one of the many amazing organisations who are helping to make these much needed changes!

PS. For those Australians voting tomorrow please don't waste your vote! Our ancestors fought long and hard so that we could have this opportunity and many people over the world don't get this chance, so please don't take advantage of the chance to have your voice heard. Please please please make sure you make an informed decision. If  a party isn't telling you its policies or plans now, don't vote for them!
