LIFE | Kmart Petone is open

Kmart Petone is open and has a bunch of affordable beauty buys, like the ELF Foundation Blurring Brush and brow razors.
Kmart opened in Petone (my neighbourhood) two weeks ago and I’ve already been twice! I haven’t bought anything special—someone asked what I’d bought and I struggled to remember, because it was mostly impulse buys of cheap shit (more on that in a moment) but there are a few useful things I picked up.

BODY | Time for tea

It was only last year that I had my first ever cup of tea. What the fuck, right? Since then I’ve drank plenty, naturally, and I’ve discovered that my favourites are Earl Grey and green tea. There aren’t that many Earl Grey scented/infused/etc beauty products, but there’s no shortage of green tea beauty products out there. Here’s a few I’ve been having a hoon on.

FACE | $20(ish) makeup challenge

I tend towards the high end when I buy myself new makeup, so I have to admit I’m not hugely familiar with the cosmetics offerings on the very low end of the budget scale. When the friendly folks at Kmart hooked me up with some of their products, I thought I’d try to do the $20 makeup challenge – a whole face of makeup for twenty dollars. I am living on a huge budget at the moment: a lot of unexpected expenses have added up to the point where I’m eating peanut butter on toast for lunch every day. Being a sensible adult is so boring.
