Hi guys, gals and non-binary pals!
Yesterday and today, in the Southern Hemisphere, we are celebrating Ostara, the beginning of Spring! I’m so excited to finally be celebrating what I’m sure will be my most favourite of the pagan holidays. Today, I’m going to share a few ways to celebrate this period of the year and share an interesting fact about the holiday! I hope that you enjoy!
I love Easter, despite the fact that in the southern hemisphere, it is meant to be celebrated in the second half of the year, but I digress. I love that everyone has another excuse to spend time with their family and eat food. Being that my name is Pastelsparkles, I also really love that pastels are a big part of this time of year. I feel quite in my element among the mints, lilacs, and pale pinks. I wanted to share a little bit about how I plan to decorate my life for this holiday, and hopefully it’ll serve as a bit of inspiration if you’re feeling like you need a bit of Easter in your every day.
While it’s still been a little bit gloomy here in Adelaide, the Southern Hemisphere is finally in Spring and I’m certainly feeling it haha. Weather is getting warmer, bugs are creeping on out of hiding places and I’m getting so teary eyed every damn day that it’s not worth putting makeup on! Today I’m sharing with you three spring lip colours that I think are great for spring! I hope that you enjoy!
This week we entered Spring here in the Southern Hemisphere! I’ve been busting out a few floral looks and have been using quite a bit of colour. I also got to try out a lot of new makeup in these looks and it was really exciting to put them to the test! I hope that you enjoy!
I finally received my Priceline cash back voucher from September and I thought that I might buy some new nail colours because I’ve been wanting to try something different. I’d been eye-ing off this collection for a while and I always liked the colours but I never bought anything. Priceline had a buy two get one free deal on the nail polish so I bought three of the six shades.
Here are the shades that I bought:
L to R: You’re Crabby, Kelp Yourself, Teeny Bikini
These colours are perfect for summer and spring or any time you feel like brightening up an outfit! I never wear yellow nail polish because I don’t think that it really suits my skin very well however I loved this pastel yellow and I thought I’d give it a go.
The yellow nail polish formula is actually the worst out of the colours that I purchased, its a bit thinner and you definitely need more than one coat to get the full opacity. I used three coats for my colour but it could have been fine with two. I do like the colour on me, which really is a bonus haha.
Both the green and pink colours have a nice consistency, both opaque and they aren’t streaky. All of these nail polishes have a great wear time and I still haven’t had them chip on me and I put this on my nails a week ago. I’ve always found that Sally Hansen nail polish has lasted best on me, compared to other drugstore nail polishes. I love the brand dearly and will recommend them to everyone because they are a great price for the quality and they’re almost always on sale!
If you can still find this collection, I would recommend it. The colours are fun and cute and perfectly match the weather in Australia right now haha. They’re really glossy and last a long time.
I hope that you are having a lovely day!

I hardly ever have time to do my hair so I was really happy to have time to make myself feel extra special and confident!
