Autumn Lippy and Nails

A new season call for a new lipstick color! After looking through many websites and searching in shops I finally found the perfect shade from Catrice.

The shade is 340 Berry Bradshaw. This lippy was the last one on sale so it was my lucky day when I found it. The lipstick is very pigmented and gives a matte finish it really goes with anything. For a casual day at university or a swanky night out. The lippy also smells like berries which is so nice when opening it up as it immediately puts a smile on my face.

A matching nail polish color is 113 do you speak love which I found is from essence. It's an interesting color like a browny red. I really like it for fall! The only thing is that it tends to chip very quickly is top coat is a must!

Also I picked up this dark purpley shade by rimmel.It's called 4.3 The High Heel life.  It has has little sparkles in it, which make it look quite mysterious perfect for a winter color!

Well that's all for

What did you introduce to your autumn wardrobe?

Heart Shaped Coconut Bath Bombs

Hi there my lovelies  :)

Since we've been entering the colder months and school has started their is nothing more that I look forward too than a warm relaxing bath at the end of the day.

Many people buy their bath bombs from the popular store called lush but unfortunately, this isn't available in Malta yet. So naturally I went hunting on Ebay and I found an adorable little store soapworkshop2012 which has bath bombs, candles, wax melts, dried flowers and all kinds of bits an bobs.

This was my first purchase so I just bought these coconut bath bombs. I just popped one in the bath and it fizzed (It's my favorite part watching it fizz) and it made my bath so nice smelling and left my skin so soft. The fact the are heart shaped is really fun for decorating your bathroom and look quite decorative. There are a variety of different scent such as chocolate, vanilla, lemon, strawberry and many more. You also get these in pack of 10 which will last quite a while for those long tiring days.

Do you like bath bombs? Would you try these ?

Tangle Teezer Original Detangling Hairbrush

So I finally gave in and purchased one of these bad boy, and I am so glad I did! I got mine in blue and pink, two of my favorite colors.

Now I have quite straight / wavy hair which unfortunately tangles quite easily and every time I try to detangle I end up with a huge clump of hair all down my sink.

The tangle teezer detangles your hair so fast and painlessly. It truly is a hair miracle. No unnecessary tugging and pulling and hearing that crackle sound when you brush your hair.

I have tried in on both wet and dry hair and in both I experienced less hair falling out when than I used a regular brush.

I would recommend it to everyone and would give it 5/5 stars!

I love this and will be used lovingly everyday!

Have you tried this?

MUA Matte Palette

This product is probably one of my best purchases. I absolutely love it. The shadows are easy to blend, velvety and very pigmented. I found it so hard to find a palette with only matte colors. Matte colors have the advantage of creating a very casual smoky sexy look.

My most loved are the bottom browns on the left hand side. I put the lighter color on my whole eyelid except the inner corners which the white eye shadow is put and the darker brown on my crease. This adds dept to my eye making them look more open and mysterious.

The only thing I would complain about is the brush included. It is very cheap and doesn't blend very well, but I just use one of my own and the result is quite lovely.

I would recommend this palate to everyone as it is a joy to anyone's make up collection.

4.5/5 stars

Summer Weight Gain

Summer has almost come to and end, which was celebrated by a lot of delicious food (Pasta, meat, potatoes, brownies, red velvet cake, sausages, fried chicken, oreo's, nutella, ice-cream, pizza just to name a few). I don't usually eat this unhealthy but when you work as a waitress surrounded with all these delicious food you can't help but take!

Luckily I haven't put on that much weight, but I only get chubbier on one place, my butt and my thighs which do look  a bit much on my 5 ft 3 stature. (My ANACONDA DON'T)

This week I have been trying to eat as good as I can, which have been met with a loss of .5 kg! Not bad for just 5 days. The next two weeks I will be trying to go the gym on a regular basis
. Around May-July I used to go at least 4 times a week, but unfortunately my life got so hectic that I had to cut it out. 

I don't really have a goal weight. I don't like to define myself by a number. I just want to feel like my old self again and more confident. 

Will keep you updated! 

Cheers for now xx

Recent Celeb Nude Photo Leak

This isn't going to be one of my usual posts. It's not going to be about beauty or make up, but about recent events that concern one of my favorite actresses Jennifer Lawrence.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, basically a person hacked into apple's icloud and took personal and private photos from  Ariana GrandeKirsten DunstVictoria Justice,  Kate Upton and more female stars and posted them on the internet for the whole world to see.

Many are actually criticizing these celebrities for taking these photos and uploading to the internet for back up. My question to them is how are you blaming the victim in the story here? These pictures where not intended for the whole world to see but for private use. Just because somebody is a celebrity or well known, does not mean they don't have the right to privacy.

Shame on the person who hacked into the phones of these people and posted them for the whole world to see! They were not intended for your eyes to see or any body else's for that matter. The victims are probably crying their hearts out just so you can have your 15 minutes of fame. 

Jennifer if your reading this, you will still be the charming, smart, charismatic young woman who I admire so much! Your fans will be behind you no matter what! Do not be embarrassed by the situation it is not your fault! The person behind this will be caught and justice will be served!

What are your thoughts about the situation?

Good Things Manuka Honey Refining Scrub

Lately I have been trying out new face products which is a lot of fun. I came across this new brand called Good Things. The brand name certainty puts a lot at stake but  I am glad to say it does not disappoint!

Packaging - I absolutely love the packaging. The bright sunny color brightens up my little bathroom so well! A very nice change from boring white, which face products are usually packaged in. The flowers on the sides are a nice touch as well.

Product - Now the product. It has a very thick moisturizing consistency with small flakes (oatmeal) that gently exfoliate dead skin cells in the upper layers of the skin leaving you with nice fresh skin. Only a little bit of the product is needed as it is very rich so you don't need to use it great amounts of it.

The creator Alice Hart Davis uses only natural ingredients such as kaolin that draws out excess oil and sweet almond oil, naturally rich in fatty acids, to leave skin perfectly smooth and Manuka honey to help balance moisture levels all in all  specially designed to keep skin clear and hydrated.

I absolutely can find  nothing wrong with this product and would recommend it to everyone!

5/5 stars!

This isn't going to be one of my normal posts. Life hasn't been the best to me lately. Everything from exams, friends, self image, love and work. On the outside I am a happy cheerful person, but  on the inside I just want to break down. I try and give my 100 % in everything but I'm prone to nerves, clumsiness and all this just puts my self confidence down. You see the people around you succeeding and you just keep failing. They have so much happiness in their lives and you are so tired  in doing your best and keep failing.

I don't despise people for succeeding for where I have failed but you just can't help yourself feeling like crap. Anyways if you are reading this and your feeling how I'm feeling just send me an email and we maybe can help each other out. 

Peace Out

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

Hello again my lovelies :)

In this post I am going to share with you one of my holy grail products. If you have been following me for long enough you know I have had a constant battle with acne, and as you know acne usually leaves a mark on your skin where the spot or zit was previously.

You have quite a decent amount of the product which is sure to last you a long long time! It is fragrance free and has a medium rich consistency so a little bit goes a long way.

 As you can see the product had done wonders for me! (LOOK HOW DARKER MY SKIN IS!)

Gorgeous Fashionable Rings

Hello again! This week I really got into rings. My inspiration was mainly from tumblr, instagram and what my friends wore! I noticed it looks really cool when you have a lot of rings on and having a really nice manicure. 

So being the shopaholic that I am I immediately logged on to Born Pretty Store and took a chance and bought some of their rings. Seeing it was my first time buying from the website I didn't want to spend a big amount! (You can be a shopaholic and responsible at the same time!)

I was really happy when they arrived in a weeks time! I will definitely continue buying from there as there where some other things I liked as well!

What do you think about the rings? Do you like them? Have you ever bought from Born Pretty ?

Perfect summer lipstick - Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish - Spring Collection Lipstick

Hello again!

This week I feel in love with Kate Moss's Spring Collection Lipstick!  I ordered this from feel unique for 7.14 euro. Which is really quite a bargain for such a high quality lipstick.

The lipstick has a really nice, creamy, velvety texture, and it feels very moisturizing on my lips. It is quite long lasting but if you eat or drink something it's fades away pretty fast as most lipsticks do.

I got it in shade 16 which is the loveliest pretty pale pick you can imagine! I really like wearing this in the morning as it gives a very innocent girl next door look !

I am also in love with the packaging. It has a very clean, polished vibe! It is very compact and will fit into any purse or make up bag! 

All in all I would recommend this lipstick to anyone. Lovely texture, has a very pretty wearable color and very affordable!

I got mine from here. So what are your thoughts? Do you like it ? Have you tried out Kate's Line ?

Rimmel London 1000 Kisses Lip Tint and Balm

The product on my lips
Another day another review! I personally think of myself as a lip girl and when I find a product that I love I simply cannot stop wearing it!

The lip tint is very pigmented and start drying immediately so you don't have to wait ages for it to dry! The lip tint by itself is very matte on it's on.I love this color on my lips and I feel it's very flattering on my skin tone! Also it stays on for a really long time, like 4 hours which is amazing!

The lip balm is very moisturizing also which I LOVE ! I got this product on Feel Unique for 8 Euro! Which is very cheap in my opinion! The only thing that I don't like so much is that it is applied with a marker. It took some getting used to. All In all I adore this product. 5/5 stars

 I got it from here in the color Perpetual Plum.

    Do you like the color? What's your favorite Rimmel product ?

    Black XS Paco Rabanne Perfume

    I first have to say that I am a big fan of this perfume! I have repurchased this perfume at least 3 times by now and I am never disappointed! Black XS has a very strong fruity smell in addition to the lovely packaging. It is a bit on the pricey side but a little goes a long way. A small bottle lasts at least 4 months.

    I hope you enjoyed this review! Tell me do you like this perfume ? Which is your favorite one?

    Ipod Shuffle Fourth Generation

    Well hello there! Just a few weeks a go I decided that I was in need of a music player, so after searching the market for a while I decided on buying an Ipod Shuffle.

    My baby 

    What I love about is this little clip it has at the back. Which allows you to clip it to anything. For example when I go to the gym it is much more comfortable it being clipped to me rather than having to carry it around.
    The Clip
    Clips right in ! 
    It also has a 10 hours battery life. Which I can confirm as promised! A cool function is the voice over button. This little button tell you the name of the artist and song. It has a capacity of 2G which is more than enough for me. Also included with the Ipod shuffle are very good quality headphones and an adapter to your PC or laptop which allows you to charge it and transfer songs.

    Well that's all for now! Hope you enjoyed it! Leave a comment down bellow if you own one or are interested in buying one!

    Mint Green and Pink Nail Art - Perfect Spring/ Summer Nail Tutorial

    Its been a while since I got creative with my nails, but today I thought I'd just give it a go! I really like this combination as it not something you see every day. While I do think this look is just the slightest bit spring summer look. It's still nice for this time of year.

    I used these two nail polishes. The pink one I got from the market and the green one I got from eBay from this seller. Click Here if you want to go directly to the seller. Unfortunately I don't know were I got the flower from as it was a gift from a good friend of mine. Luckily I found some alternatives you might like. Click here if you want to see what I found.

    So anyways I hope that you liked my nails! Leave a comment and tell if you liked them! Also if you tried them out make sure to send me a picture so I can see :) 

    Bye xx
