THE WEEKLY POST COLLECTIVE #039 - CassandraMyee



This week was a little bit more special than the rest on CM as I celebrated a pretty big milestone in my blogging career (can I even call it that?), but the rest of this weeks posts remained to the norm. There was an unboxing of a particularly different sort of subscription box, a haul and of course, some product reviews as well.

AUSTRALIS // New Eye + Lip Products | Review + Swatches

A couple of months back I was luckily sent a goodie bag packed with Australis products to try out, and I blogged about some of the base products (see them here) and today I'll be sharing some thoughts on their eye and lip offerings. Some of these products are relatively new to the Australis line up and others have been available for a little while now.

URBAN DECAY // Naked 2 Basics Palette | Review + Swatches - CassandraMyee

The Naked range of palettes from Urban Decay are always going to be winners in my book. My Naked Basics palette has got SO much love over the past year and it's the best matte palette I own. I knew that as soon as I could get my hands on the newly released Naked 2 Basics, I was going to love it, and I wasn't wrong...

MY 500TH POST

MY 500TH POST - CassandraMyee


If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my little hint that something pretty big was happening this week on CM... well here it is MY 500TH BLOG POST!! 

Yep, you read that correctly, today marks the day that I publish my 500th post onto CassandraMyee, and I can't quite believe it. I only just realised last week that this pretty momentous occasion was about to happen and I thought I couldn't just put up a normal post - this needed a special post all to itself. So with a bit of inspiration from Anna (ViviannaDoesMakeup), I put together a massive flatlay packed with some of my favourite products that I've discovered during my time blogging, and naturally had to shape them into a big 500.

When I first started CM in July 2013 (22nd to be exact), I honestly did not think that I would be at this point, 549 days later. I knew that I really wanted to put a lot of effort into my blog and see where it could go, but looking back now my brain would not be able to comprehend 500 posts. That is a massive load of words, 1000s of photos, and a lot of beauty products! It's cliche, but seriously I loved every single minute of it and probably wouldn't be here today if that wasn't the case. I owe everyone who has clicked, followed, read, commented, shared, tweeted, any of my posts a big ol' hug. Because seriously, you are all the bees knees and totally amazing.

NOTD // Essie Sand Tropez + OPI Gaining Mole-Mentum - CassandraMyee

Neutral shades with an added bit of glitter to them are always some of my favourite manicures and these two polishes, from two different brands (Essie and OPI) were almost made for each other!

BEAUTY JOINT // Haul #006 - Wet N Wild, e.l.f., NYC + Jordana - CassandraMyee

The only way to do Boxing Day sales is online in my opinion. So while perusing my favourite online shopping sites, I landed on one of my faves for makeup, Beauty Joint and they had 20% off everything! I already had a few things I wanted to get, but also ordered a few extra goodies as well, because when on Beauty Joint I can't really control myself!

A BEAUTIFUL MESS // Happy Mail December '14 | Unboxing + Thoughts - CassandraMyee


Around these parts, beauty subscription boxes are the norm, but I've discovered a new subscription service that is absolutely unique, featuring another thing that I love - stationery. A Beautiful Mess (an incredible blog that you should all follow!), have branched out their empire and introduced a monthly subscription box service called Happy Mail that arrives packed with stationary goodies, from cards, postcards, stickers, prints and more.

THE WEEKLY POST COLLECTIVE #038 - CassandraMyee


Another Sunday, another Weekly Post Collective. This week was a mixed bag on CM; there were cheeks, there were eyes, nails, lips, and a couple of subscription boxes too. So if you are spending this Sunday lying around in the sun, you might want to catch up on some of the posts you may have missed.
