Happy Monday, friends! I hope all my Australian readers are staying safe and warm inside – how crazy is this cold snap!? I’m surprised it didn’t snow at my house it was that cold! Blankets and jumpers have been the theme of the weekend overall!
Still waiting for uni results… They come out next week and I’m super nervous! I just hope that I somehow did enough during exams to keep up my average and performed a miracle!
Haul post finally heading your way! Everything arrived last week so I have that coming for you this week – you’ll see the full extent of my shopping issues and the reason that my bank account isn’t exactly sitting pretty at the moment!
Speaking of posts… I need your help! I had such an awesome response to my highlighter collection posts over the last two weeks (linked here and here if you want to catch up) and would love to know what you’d like to see next! How I store my collection, my collection of specific categories (blushes, primers, face palettes etc) or particular brands – I’d love to know! I want to share it all, but figuring out how to make it the best format for you guys is difficult!
Camera update – it sucks. Which is so frustrating! I was so excited but I played around and am getting better quality shots from my phone… so I’m going to do my research and save up for a new one, that’s really my only option – any bloggers out there, what camera do you use? A tip would be super appreciated!
I made a rainbow cake! Anyone who follows me on Snapchat (ebonymbc) would know this from last weekend – but man they are hard work!! I spent probably about 4 hours in the kitchen overall, but I am so happy with the result. And how funky is the before picture?! It worked well and tasted good, I’m so happy! Never again though, never again.
What are you guys watching on Netflix? Now that I’ve binge watched Orange is the New Black (love!) I’m stuck with the ‘nothing to watch’ dilemma and can’t find anything to get into! I’ve also finished watching Criminal Minds, which is also a favourite, so I’m all out of shows and would love your recommendations!
Are you following my Facebook page? Since I had such a positive response towards my recent blog giveaway, I’ve decided to throw one on my Facebook page in the next few weeks to hopefully grow my interaction there a little more! Head over here (or search The Black and White Guide) and let me know what you’d be interested in winning on the pinned post!
Busy week this week! We have workers coming to the house Tuesday, a rental inspection Wednesday, my partner’s mother (my future mother-in-law, feels so weird writing that!) is also coming for a visit, plus I have work as usual, my partner has a super busy couple of weeks with work and I’ve got a bunch of family stuff happening – I’m tired just thinking about it! I am so happy I have some content scheduled for you guys so I don’t miss out on my posting schedule!
That’s it for me this week – I’m off to work! Don’t forget to add me on Snapchat to follow what I get up to on a daily basis!
