Everyone and their dog probably knows by now that I recently had quite a dramatic haircut (or rather, series of haircuts). I went from waist length, dip-dyed purple hair to shoulder length blonde hair (which lasted about a month) to my current style, a bob. I've really been loving my new shorter hair and I've had so many compliments that it makes me feel like it was the right decision. But having shorter hair means an overhaul of my hair styling routine so I've come up with a few useful tips and products for styling shorter hair.

One of my goals for the year was to spend less and try to use what I have. The problem with any makeup collection is that it's so easy to fall into a routine and just stick to your favourites leaving the majority of your collection to gather dust. This year, I've been making more of an effort to dig out things that I may have neglected and give them a whirl so welcome to the first edition of Shop My Stash.

TMI Alert! This post involves a lot of info on bodily hair so squeamish people should look away now.
I am one of those people who, due to a mixture of genetics and bad luck, has been blessed/cursed with an ungodly amount of hair. True that I have gallons of shiny hair on my head and luscious, thick eyebrows but I also have feet that could rival any Hobbit’s and legs that require pretty much daily shaving. Over the years, I have tried a plethora of hair removal techniques and I feel that it’s time I embraced my hairiness and shared my knowledge with you so here’s what I use in my ever raging battle against my large amount of bodily hair.

If you’ve been a KaBOOM! Cosmetics reader for any length of time, you’ll know how much I love the Big W beauty brand, Boe Beauty (you can read about my experiences with Boe Beauty here and here). Big W beauty has recently expanded to include Boe Professional which has a bigger (and slightly more expensive) range. I love the Boe Beauty brand because although they are cheap (everything costs a mere $2), the quality is comparable to some of the much more expensive drug store brands. I have not yet tried anything from Boe Professional but I was lucky enough to be sent a selection from the new lipstick range (RRP $8.95) to try so here’s what I thought.

Over Christmas, I sent out a request on Twitter to see if any UK based bloggers were interested in doing a Christmas Blog Swap. Not only did I make a new friend in Angie from Chocolate & Lipstick but I also got the chance to try out some amazing goodies from brands that we (sadly) don’t get in Australia.

I am a very lucky lady having recently come back from a wonderful 3 days on Stradbroke Island for New Year. While the weather wasn’t fantastic, we did manage to sneak in some time on the beach which is one of my absolute favourite things to do and it was the perfect way to start 2015. It was great not really worrying too much about makeup but are some of my beach essentials.

That was my initial reaction when I finally had the new Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette clutched in my sweaty little paws! I have done a video review/first impressions which you can find here. I thought I would also do a blog post with some better quality swatches and little more info on the shades.

Welcome to 2015! KaBOOM! Cosmetics is back in business and I’m feeling very well rested after my little Christmas break and looking forward to lots of big changes (keep your eyes peeled for updates very soon) and bringing lots of fresh and fun content to the blog. I thought I would start off the 2015 blog posts with a roundup of my makeup picks of 2014 (I have linked through to a review or video featuring the products where relevant).
