Greg Pug FINALLY conquered the ocean!

Last Thursday we woke up and were hankering for a beach trip. We live in a suburb about 20 minutes away from the beach, on the Gold Coast, and we definitely don't take advantage of it enough!

So we packed up the car and put the Puppia on the pug and off we went!

Now Greg has been to the beach a handful of times since we've owned him...the VERY first time probably didn't go down so well...Luke thought it would be a good idea to -DROP- Greg in the water as he thought this would teach him to learn to love it...hmmm, I was unsure of Luke's theory but eventually agreed to let him try it. A decision I immediately regretted as I watched my fur baby plonk into the ocean then scramble out with the most terrified look on his face....needless to say every trip to the beach since then Greg has kept a good 50 metres away from the ocean and us!

This was the actual moment from that terrifying first ordeal!
So this particular trip to the beach on Thursday I was expecting the same reaction from my little guy! We'd get to the beach and let Greggy off his lead, Luke and I would walk down to the water and greg would stay up top on the soft sand chasing people who he believed would be more trustworthy parents! 

But to our surprise he decided to walk with us, and slowly let his little paws get a bit wet as the waves rolled thing I new the waves were rushing over his head! He would quickly bound out back onto the safe sand but it wasn't long before he'd get his daredevil pants back on and run straight back naturally we had to document this exciting moment in pug parent life! And we caught our little dude conquering the ocean for the first time! YOU GO GREG COCO! :P

Check out the video below

More Greg adventures coming very soon so make sure to follow us on Bloglovin'!


Coraline - An easy and creepy Halloween costume!

Hey lovelies!

You may have noticed I've amped up the amount of Halloween costume tutorials I've done lately...this is because...DUH!...Halloween is nearly here!!! I get so excited at this time of year and probably spend way more money on costume options then I should (oops!). But this creepy Coraline costume that I've created is a great one to do if you're on a budget!

So I purchased the short blue wig on eBay for around $4 from Hong Kong and it arrived quite quickly, but I would recommend ordering it at least a month before Halloween.

The only other product I used that you may not having lying around is the black face paint. You can find face paint quite cheap in a lot of craft shops, just make sure it's non toxic!

And the rest of the products I used are general makeup products that most people will have, but I have listed all of them down below.


Napoleon Perdis - Peep Show Black Mascara
Face of Australia - Black Gel Eyeliner
Face of Australia - Black Pencil Liner
Shanghai Suzy - Baby Coral Lipstick
Makeup & Glow - Bouquet Lip Liner
Gorgeous Cosmetics - Skinny Dip Lip Liner
Rimmel London - Smokey Noir Black Eyeshadow
Lime Crime - Lunar Sea Liquid Eyeliner

If any of you do create this look for Halloween be sure to let me know or tag me on any of the many social media platforms I use!

Cowabunga Dudes!!! Michelangelo TMNT Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lipstick!

Cowabunga Dudes!

I got a little bit excited about the release of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie which is coming out this week (here in Australia).

And it gave me a little inspiration to try out a TMNT look on my lips!

So off I set to find a green lipstick! Now I did firstly look to my trusty favourite - LimeCrime, but unfortunately the beautiful green colour they do offer was just WAY to dark for this style. Then I remembered that NYX had just released a new Macaroon lippy range and I was sure I recalled seeing a bright green...alas! I found a girl selling them on eBay for $12 and so I quickly ordered the "Key Lime" green Lipstick :)

As soon as I received it, I got straight into the studio and started filming...and this is what I came up with for my TMNT lipstick look:

Now I had earlier asked Luke which turtle was his favourite and after her replied "Cowabunga, Dude! Michelangelo, Duh!!" I decided to do the lipstick inspired by Michelangelo (the orange turtle). But as I have shown in the above picture, you can do any of the turtles you like, just by switching up the bandana colour!

Check out the lipstick tutorial video below.

Hey beauties!

This week's Freaky Friday makeup was inspired by the incredible Alice in Wonderland movie. I know many of you may think it looks to cute to be a "Freaky" makeup, but have you SEEN Alice in Wonderland?!?! The Cheshire Cat is so freakin' creepy!

I can't lie, I had SO much fun creating this look...about 20 minutes in to applying it I was worried I was starting to look like a (sexy) drag queen...but it all came together with the application of that HUGE mouth! :P

The entire list of products I used can be viewed at the end of this post. Enjoy the video tutorial!

Meet GREG!!! The Pug Dude!

Sooo I thought it was about time I introduced you guys to Greg! He is the other love of my life (after Luke of course! - okay maybe equal to).

Greggy was a semi-accidental purchase...I found a breeder who had a brand new litter of puppies. After a little convincing Luke agreed that we could go and LOOK at the puppies, I emphasise that Luke was the one who said look and not buy...

So we arrived at the "Pug Farm" as we still refer to it as. Imagine 200 pugs all running around the same yard - it.was.AMAZING!!! And the breeder led us to this little lonely pen where we were welcomed by a gorgeous little fawn girl who was a little shy but absolutely adorable! I was about to lean down to cuddle her when out ran this crazy lil bundle of black fur, he leapt on top of the fawn pug and stared up at us with his "play with meeeeeee" eyes.

That was the moment I saw Luke's eyes turn soft, he switched his puppies eyes on and looked at me...."can we get him?!?!" he begged which I was powerless, I couldn't resist that ridiculous little smooshy face and the hilarious grunt as he ran. 2 days later we drove the hour and a half back to the breeder's house and picked up.....Gregory!!!!!

He hates the ocean, but loves showers.

He, i mean LOVES food and will do anything for it. His favourite food is bacon.

He sleeps in the bed with us and snores the entire time!

He loves sunbaking, he's extremely hard to get a photo of because he's so black! He has the most awesome personality, he lives to go on walks and play with other dogs.

Gregory is the best semi-accidental decision I've ever made and he makes every day brighter. 

Expect to see lots more of this ridiculous little dude! :)

Simple Halloween Makeup Costume Ideas!

Hey guys!

I know it has been a little while since my last post - but my YouTube channel is still running 2 videos a week and with the new addition of my FREAK FRIDAY videos I have a few creepy makeups to show you.

There are some super effective looks here that are actually pretty easy to achieve and you don't need any sort of Special Effects makeup for majority of these looks.

I LOVE Halloween and I am super excited to do more freaky looks before then so if you do want to keep up to date or get some more ideas for a Halloween costume be sure to follow me on YouTube here: Eyedolize Makeup On YouTube

So firstly I have this incredibly easy way of doing a crying blood makeup - a great thing to add to a vampire costume!

This look is all about creating the effect of dripping blood - but with makeup that won't actually drip!

All you need in order to recreate this look is:

  • red & black face paint 
  • a black pencil eyeliner 
  • a white liquid eyeliner.
Next I created this stretched lips look - a fun way to create a warped makeup look, sure to creep anyone out!

Once again, you only need a few basic products, which are:

  • Light Pink Lipstick
  • Pink Lip Liner
  • Light Concealer
  • White & Black Face Paint
  • Black Eyeshadow
  • White Eyeshadow

And lastly is this stapled eye look. An extremely effective way of creeping people out! This amazing 3D effect is still only created with basic products.

The products I used to do this freaky makeup were:

  • Ben Nye - Dark Red, Medium Red & Black Face Paints
  • Gorgeous Cosmetics - White Eyeliner Pencil
  • ModelRock - Short Individual Lashes
  • LashGrip - Eyelash Adhesive
  • Temptu - Complexion Correct Concealer Wheel
  • Vaseline - Petroleum Jelly

I hope you guys enjoy these Halloween makeup ideas! And check out my channel for LOTS more :)
