October 2020 Bellabox Review

My October Bellabox came full of products perfect for Spring and the warmer weather. I received a wonderful assortment of goodies in my Bellabox this month, with a selection of full-sized and sample sized hair care, skincare and beauty products. I was excited this month to receive a Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick in Freckle Fiesta it is bold and has some serious staying power! I was also delighted to receive an assortment of sample sized hair care products from Klorane, one of my favourite haircare brands.
Here are all the beautiful products that I received in my Bellabox this month:

UNIQUE TO MY BELLABOX:
Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick, full-sizeTypically I shy away from a bold lip look as I'm shocking at remembering to reapply. This lipstick with its staying power may have just changed that. When applying it felt like butter with a matte lipstick finish. The size of the lipstick is also not just pretty but very compact.

Gippsland Art Gallery - Art Aid


Gippsland Art Gallery has been inundated by artists and donors wanting to support the fire relief effort by submitting artworks for a fundraising auction - Art Aid Gippsland. All money raised from the art auction will be donated to the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund (GERF) to help support those who have lost their homes and property in the devastating East Gippsland bushfires. A selection of artworks will be displayed at the Gallery from Saturday 15 February to Sunday 15 March culminating in an auction on the final day, on Sunday 15 March.


Throughout my early years as an exhibiting artists many of the exhibitions and events I was apart of were in the Gippsland region, partly due a supportive auntie who owned a gallery in Leongatha. I also would take frequent surf trips through Gippsland which made it easy for me to visit galleries and arrange the showing of my artworks. The important role that the Gippsland community has played in my success as an exhibiting artist and the connection I have to the area through family made it a no brainier for me to make a donation of artwork to the Gippsland Art Gallery, Art Aid Gippsland auction. I have donated two collaborative skateboard artworks that I painted with Megan Dell, who also has strong family ties to Gippsland. I have donated 100% of funds from their sale to the Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund (GERF). 

The artworks did not make the cut for the exhibition/display, however they are up online for you to place a bid on. You bid on them at:
Bidding closes at 4pm AEST on Sunday 15 March 15, 2020.
