Makeup Favourites, Covergirl Peacock Flare, The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid, Maybelline Fit Me, Kiehls Vitamin C, Urban Decay All Nighter

Being a shorter month it's no wonder that February just flew by.  I joined a gym last month that has a crèche attached and I'm loving getting out of the house most mornings, dropping the toddler in crèche and getting a workout in.  One of the things I decided to do when I moved to Brisbane was to stop letting my anxiety have so much control over my life.  There are many ways I'm working to combat this and trust me when I say it's hard work but I'm so proud of the progress that I'm making.  This month one of the goals I smashed was to attend my very first spin class which ended up being incredible.  I think I'm addicted as I've been going to them every week, sometimes even twice a week haha (who even am I?).  All this gym going means I've haven't been wearing a lot of makeup through the month.  It's also been incredibly hot and humid here in Brisbane so keeping my makeup minimal is a necessity. 

Here are some of my favourite products I loved in February...

The Best Makeup Products under $20 in Australia

I'm a firm believer that you don't have to spend a lot of money on high end products to achieve gorgeous makeup looks. Sure there are some fantastic high end products that are worth investing in if it's something that is of value to you, but I love searching for and finding amazing makeup products that don't cost the earth and are still fantastic quality. I thought I'd compile a list of the best makeup products that are available in Australia for under $20.

beauty blogger, I'm back blogging,

Okay okay I know it's been a long time between posts but I've had a lot going on okay!  I ummed and aaahd wether or not to hang up my fingers? haha and say goodbye to the world of blogging but the truth is even if hardly anyone reads this I really enjoy doing it.  Sitting down and writing about beauty products and my opinion of them is like a dream job for me.  So why not just keep on doing it, I mean I'm not making any money here but I'm also not making any money by NOT blogging haha.

A lot has changed since I started blogging in 2013.  For me personally, I got married, gave birth to a beautiful baby girl (shes 2 now whaaat), nursed my Dad through terminal brain cancer and said our final goodbye a few short months later.  I moved from Adelaide to Newcastle in 2014 and just over a month ago we made the move North to sunny Brisbane.  I'm an #armywife so we move every 3 years but this last move was particularly hard as it was our first with a child and I had to leave my Mum and Sister behind in Newcastle.  A lot has changed in the blogging world since I started too.  The internet is absolutely saturated now with beauty blogs, Instagram accounts and Youtubers all talking about beauty products and offering their opinion to the world.  I don't claim to offer anything different to anyone else but I do promise to always be honest and to always disclose if a product is gifted to me.  I absolutely love when one of my friends sends me a message and asks me about a particular product or for a recommendation on something so I'm basically just doing that but making it public.  

Okay enough rambling, it's only been 6 months since I wrote a post not 6 years and I'm feeling super inspired and motivated to write about some new products, let you in on some of my all-time faves and basically answer all your questions when it comes to beauty products.

If you ever want my opinion on a brand or product or just want to chat about anything at all feel free to leave a comment on my blog, DM me over on Instagram (@imminentbeauty) or email me at  Also if you never want to miss a post make sure you fill out your email address in the 'follow by email' box (over on the right hand side if you're using a desktop).

Here's to a great 2018


P.S February is the new January FYI :)

IMATS Sydney 2017 Experience & Haul

I was lucky enough to visit IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) in Sydney on the weekend and I thought I'd sit down and write about it while it is still fresh in mind.  This will be a two part blog post.  Today I'll show you what I bought and tell you a little about the event and later in the week, I'll let you know my tips and tricks if you plan on attending in future years.  I'll also let you know in the next blog post what I paid for what I bought and how much I saved by attending this event, keeping in mind that I paid around $45 for my ticket to get in.

Priceline 50% off Haircare Sale Haul

 If you haven't heard, I'm here to let you know that Priceline is having another 50% off Haircare sale today and tomorrow (Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th July).  This is such a great time to stock up on all your haircare products and I like to get in-store nice and early on the first day so that I don't miss out on anything.  I didn't go overboard this time, just picked up the essentials as well as a couple of treats.  I wanted to pick up some shampoo and conditioner but I honestly couldn't decide what to get and it was quite busy so I might do some research and head back in tomorrow!  Here's what I picked up today....

Mecca Cosmetica Lip Balm, In Essence Sleep Easy Essential Oil Blend, Insight Timer App, Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil

Sleep has been something that's always come easily to me for most of my life.  It wasn't until I had a baby and had to deal with interrupted nights and very little sleep that it started to become an issue.  In fact, I had no idea it was even an issue until my baby started sleeping through the night (at about 8 months old).  I was so excited to start getting full nights sleep again but instead, I would lay awake at night staring at the ceiling begging myself to fall asleep.  It took me awhile but I developed some healthy sleep habits, so if you struggle with getting a good night's sleep hopefully some of these tips & tricks will help you as much as they helped me.
