Gluten free Chocolate cupcakes with mint chocolate chip frosting

I made the chocolate cupcakes from a gluten free packet mix. Then to make the frosting, I got the recipe from http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2013/03/03/chocolate-cupcakes-with-mint-chocolate-chip-frosting
I almost messed it up at first because I was following the cup measurements without realising that they were not Australian metric cups. I saved it in time and converted to using the gram measurements. I altered the recipe by adding more choc chips on top. I also used regular sized milk choc chip rather than mini choc chips, as my local Coles did not have any mini ones.

Lush haul

I have always walked past lush but never really went in. After watching my favourite youtubers (zoella, Tanya burr and sprinkle of glitter) obsess over lush. I finally checked out their website, wrote up a list of things to smell and headed into the store.. a long time and a lot of money later, I reemerged with a bag full of lush products. And they are:
-king of skin
-space girl
-sex bomb
-mumkin
-dragons egg
-honey bee
-ceridwen's cauldron
-you've been mangoed
-brightside
-comforter

So far I have used king of skin, space girl and the comforter. The comforter is the only one so far that I will rebuy.

Makeup and jewellery haul

After having not blogged in a little while, my purchases have naturally piled up. So here is a whole bunch of new makeup and jewellery I have collected.
-rimmel wake me up foundation in 103 true ivory
-models prefer highlighter in glitz and glamour
-models prefer brow liner in light
-watch from princess Polly
-sass and bide make a wish necklace
-Revlon colorburst lip colour in demure reservee
-nyx butt naked turn the other cheek palette
-nyx super skinny eye marker
-nyx matte lipstick in hippie chic
-nyx jumbo eye pencils in French fries and milk
-nyx blush in dusty rose
-nyx eyebrow powder in blonde
-nyx shine killer primer
-nyx matte bronzer in light

Of all of this, some items I haven't yet tried, some I have absolutely loved and some have been a little underwhelming.

The rimmel foundation, the nyx eye pencils, the nyx blush and the nyx bronzer have all been absolute favourites.
I was quite surprised with the quality and pigmentation of the nyx products, after buying them online from target for quite cheap, I didn't expect a lot but they are all quite amazing.

I have been a little underwhelmed by the models prefer highlighter as it doesn't seem to do a whole lot.

The Revlon colorburst was also a bit of a let down, the colour itself is nice enough, but the smell is very off putting. All I think of when I smell it is my cats flea treatment, which is awful and rather chemically.

Also, lastly just a selfie showing the use of some of these products, in particular the rimmel foundation, models prefer brow liner and highlighter.
