It’s Wednesday, that means a new Let’s Cook post!
This time I made some simple sugar cookies and decorated them like my boyfriend’s favourite Pokemon – Gengar.
Aren’t they just adorable?
Today I’m sharing a stunning antique gold shimmer look with you!
It’s easy, quick and looks great. For the full tutorial check out my YouTube channel.
My first step was creating my base foundation I use the Maybelline super stay 24h in ivory.
I went for a lighter contour using bronzer to keep within the gold theme.
Next I used a light gold shimmer on the inner corners, spreading it out to the centre of my lids (‘radiance’).
One of the other shades I used to create depth was ‘toffee’ in the above BYS berries palette.
I also used a few more shades that you can see by watching the tutorial video.
To finish the look I added some liquid lipstick in the shade ‘chocolate’, winged liner and mascara.
I hope you enjoy seeing the look put together in the video as well as a quick overview.
IMPORTANT: Posting for Molly’s Reality and the accompanying YouTube videos will happen on the following schedule:
I find it super entertaining to see what delicious foods other people make, so I’m going to pay it forward by sharing my tasty and simple lunch from today.
Delicious pesto zoodles! (and broccoli)
Zucchini is my FAVOURITE veggie and possibly my favourite food. No matter how you cook it, it’s sooo tasty. And pesto? Do I even need to explain my love for pesto? I could have pesto’s babies. This is how pesto makes me feel:
If you want to know how I made it, check out my YouTube channel to see the related video. (coming soon!)
I hope this inspired some zucchini and pesto lovers to make a tasty creation in the kitchen!

Looking for a subtle everyday eye look?
This look is subtle BUT also draws attention because of winged eyeliner! For more vlogs, visit my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMY-BoIF2wTDt3w1kqEQ1Ug
I have a lot of makeup.
I don’t use it all, but it’s there just in-case my porcelain white skin spontaneously turns a light caramel colour. Obviously, with so much makeup I need a good supply of decent makeup brushes and applicators. I have many brushes and applicators, but recently I bought an eyeshadow and contour brush set that’s a little more magical than the rest of my collection.
They. Are. So. Cute. Surprisingly I managed to find a cheaper set that has decent bristles! I’ve already used a few of them when filming my Everyday Eyes video. Expect to see that uploaded to my YouTube channel within the next few days.
That’s all! Make sure you subscribe to get E-mail notifications when I create a new post!
Ever wondered how to spruce up your indoor environment with little effort?
I’ve got some things to show you!
About a year ago, I was going through a change of scenery in my work space. I was sick of the clutter and dull atmosphere. So I decided to experiment with a few types of beautifying and rearranging. A touch of greenery was what made the most difference!
I’ve killed numerous plants in my time, so when I tried out air plants, I was pleasantly surprised! It was difficult to kill.
This is my current air plant. I spray it once a day with a spray bottle of water and it doesn’t actually live here in direct sunlight. Its home is on my bookshelf, just out of direct sunlight.
The other alive indoor plant I currently have is a lucky bamboo. It’s grown quite a bit since I got it but it won’t get much larger than this.
And as I’m prone to murdering plants, this last one is perfect for me.
Looks great right? These suckers don’t need any watering. Ever. They’re fake! They look pretty real though. Embarrassing story: When me and my boyfriend bought these, we didn’t realise they were fake until I watered one of them… It took 2 hours of draining upside down for it to completely dry out. Fair to say I felt like the biggest idiot. I still do.
Candles and oil
I am completely obsessed with lovely smells and ambient lighting. This is conveniently packaged into one item. Or in my case – many.
Candles have completely taken over my room. From gorgeous scents to bright colours, you can’t go wrong! But you can… if you burn your house down. Don’t do that. It’d kinda suck. A lot…
Anyway… Here’s some of my favourite candles right now.
And some bad-ass skull candle-holders.
Possibly used more frequently than my candles, is my oil burner!
I tend to use wax melts waaay more than oils because they’re easier to clean out. Plus the oils take longer to burn than the tea-light candle that sits underneath it – I don’t want to waste tea-lights! I know I could just go and buy an electric oil burner, but there’s something more magical about that delicate little flame underneath. Also the vanilla scented tea-light candles I have smell pretty great without taking away from the melt or oil scent.
Here’s my burner in action.
Well that’s it for today! I hope these simple and easy methods of improving your environment were of some help or entertainment! Happy decorating!

This is the redwood forest 45 minutes drive from my house.
I already live in a forested area in Australia, but there’s something about this redwood forest that just takes your breath away. I’m so used to the scenery within my local forest (literally 500 metres up the street), so the uniformity of the trees and the ground that’s littered with this gorgeous fallen foliage is like something out of a fairy-tale, and a lovely, slight change of scenery for me.
When my boyfriend Jamie asked what I wanted to do that weekend, I knew I was craving some outdoorsy stuff. It was so calming to walk through this place, the only noise audible being the wildlife and the wind.
Apologies about the horrid quality picture- my phone just can’t handle the beauty.

Part 1 – Why?
Why should you try winged eyeliner? I could just say “trust me, it’s great!” but that won’t convince all of you! Here’s a list I’ve made.
…so to get great results with your liner, stay tuned and subscribed for the next part of my How-to series, where we explore colour and how it can drastically change your liner look!
Side note: I am super aware I need to pluck my eyebrows in this photo, but the liner is so delicious that I had to use it!
Well hey there!
I’d like to share with the internet what my dinner consisted of last night. I made the most delicious steamed vegetables and polenta! After being recommended to try bamboo steaming my vegetables, I did it with great results.
The vegetables had much more flavour when I used the bamboo steamer, so from now on, I know how I’ll be steaming. Try it, it’s delicious!
