Good morning you guys! It’s been a while since I posted, but I’m finally back with some great content.
The trend this Summer is all about metallic shoes and I have been seeing so many “Splurge vs Save” posts, which inspired me to round up my favorite metallic shoe splurges and saves. So if you are either splurging, saving or both, this post is just right for you.
Metallic shoes have been seen on fashion runways such as that of Gucci, Christian Dior, Hermes, Chanel and YSL. Here are some of my top picks from these fashion designers.
Amazon is also following this trend for the Summer, so you do not need to break the bank in order to be part of this fashion trend. Here are a round up of my must have metallic shoes from amazon.
Good morning loves! It is finally spring and we are ready for spring fashion. I have got for you today some beautiful Spring outfit ideas from the website Poppy Apparel. I have grouped them up in three groups: dresses, two pieces and Jumpsuits & rompers. Get 10% discount on all items from Poppy Apparel with our code: musthaves
If you are attending events during Spring, then a knee length dress, a two piece set or a cute jumpsuit would make a perfect outfit. Popular colors during Spring are pastel colors or colors in combination with white. As soon as the weather starts to change, you find yourself automatically gravitating to more lighter and or softer colors. However, if you want to go with a more bolder look during spring, then you should try a bolder color or print. Take note that these bolder alternatives were also present during the 2018 Spring runways.
Hi everyone! Today I have for you my thoughts on the BS – Mall Brushes. I ordered these brushes on Amazon for $10.99. This set consist of 14 brush pieces, they have a bold handle and come in various colors.
After using these brushes for one year, these are my thoughts:
They are pretty
Their bold handle makes it easier to use.
The bristles are very soft and are of good quality.
The bristles are easy to clean.
There is no hair fall out while applying my make up or while cleaning the brushes.
The set cost $10.99 which is pretty cheap, considering the amount of brushes that you are getting and their quality.
I purchased these brushes less then a year ago, but one of the handles are already broken for no specific reason.
The Angled Brush is not large enough, considering it is a blush and bronzer brush.
The Flat Angled Brush is not narrow enough for its purpose as a nose contouring brush.
Hi everyone!! Today I have got my Ulta Beauty wish list. My wish list consists mostly of new products that I want to try out but also other products that I never got a chance to try out in the past. This list is in no particular order. Just like my other posts, this post is also not sponsored. It is literally my own personal wish list based on the Ulta Beauty website and reviews from beauty gurus. So let’s get started!
1. Brush Crush 306 Kabuki Brush
This kabuki brush is part of a limited edition collection from the brand Real techniques. This collection has a glittery, pastel and holographic look to it which gives it a mermaid/ unicorn vibe. This brush is large and can be used to apply your finishing powered or blush.
This makeup palette is from one of my favorite beauty gurus, Carli Bybel. The packaging of this palette is amazing and it has 21 eye shadow & highlighter colors. Just like the original Carli Bybel palette, it is also limited edition.
3. The Porefessional Face Primer Mini
The Porefessional face primer from Benefit Cosmetics is the #1 best-selling face primer in the US. I have never used a face primer before, only eye primers for my eye shadows. So the Porefessional face primer is definitely going to be my first face primer.
I have heart so much about this mascara and it’s unique name, so off course I would want to try it out.
6. Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring Expert
There are a lot of us that suffer from cellulite. Cellulite is nothing to be ashamed of, but it wouldn’t hurt, if we could just reduce the appearance of cellulite. With the help of healthy eating, exercise and the Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Contouring expert from Clarins, you can reduce the appearance of cellulite.
7. Hydrating Bubble Mask
Based on my previous post, it is clear that I love to use or at least try out ELF products. So I will definitely be trying this face mask. Keep in mind that this product is above $10, in comparison to the other products I have been using from ELF.
8. The Multiple
The reason why this product made my list is because I love Nars blushes and this product is a multi-purpose stick and can be used on your eyelids, lips and off course on your cheeks as a blush
9. Prep & Prime Fix
Based on my previous post on ELF, I commented that I love ELF’s setting spray, except for it’s smell. So I wanted to try out I different brand and came across the Prep & Prim Fix from MAC. This product received a lot of good review when it comes to setting your make up and it has four different scents. Scent wise I want to try out the “Calming Lavender” and “Creamy Coconut”
10. Double Duty Beauty Shape Tape Matte Foundation
I have been loving the shape tape concealer formula from Tarte so much. So the reason why I want to purchase this item is because my expectation are that the Shape Tape Foundation will give the same full coverage as the concealer.
Hi loves! I have been using ELF products for a while now, and I think it is the perfect time to give my honest opinion about the specific items that I have been using. They aren’t new on the market, but I do believe that it is best to use a product on a daily basis and for a few month in order for you to be able to give a good review. Again this post is not sponsored. I purchased them all at Walmart for under $10, but are they really worth it? Let’s find out!
This moisturizing lipstick gives indeed moisture to your lips in comparison with the other ELF lipsticks. It is buttery, I love the overall texture of it and how it looks on my lips. Most of the time when you think about moisturizing lipsticks, you often think that it would be sheer and you would have to apply it multiple times for it to give a vibrant look. But believe me this is not the case with this one. You can see that vibrant red in one swipe.
Velvet Matte lipstick
Just like the moisturizing lipstick, the velvet matte lipsticks are buttery, and very pigmented. It is indeed matte, but it does not make your lips feel dry. Between the two colors that I purchased, I like the color “Ruby Red” more than the “Fuchsia Fantasy”, because the “Ruby Red” has a ready to wear look to it. The color “Fuchsia Fantasy” would look better if you use a dark lip pencil color and give it an ombre look.
Matte Lip color
Of all the ELF lipsticks, the Matte lip color is my favorite. It has more or less the same finish as the velvet matte lipsticks, but because of its pencil like shape, you can apply it much easier and you can be more precise. I purchased the color “Wine” and “Berry Sorbet”. I think both colors are pretty, but because I love wearing red lipstick, the color “Wine” is my number one go to lipstick shade. Plus it gives you that chic look.
I have been using either the acne fighting foundation from ELF or the even better foundation from Clinique. I love both, but I like the ELF foundation more. The reason for this is that the ELF foundation gives a better coverage, it gives a matte finish, it stays on longer and it is less expensive.
I have been using this Sheer perfect finish HD powder to set my make up, and it is amazing!!! It is “powder white” but as the name says, it is sheer. So when you apply it to your make up it does not make your face white. It blurs imperfections and it makes your skin super soft. I mostly use it in combination with the shape tape contour concealer from Tarte under my eye. I apply the Sheer perfect finish HD powder with the tapered brush from BS- Mall.
So I purchased the Baked highlighter in the color “Blush Gems”. It is a very pretty color, but it doesn’t highlight enough. I made sure that I was using it correctly based on ELF’s website at the section “how to use”. I removed the top protective layer before using it, I used a brush and my fingers, but still I did not get the result I was looking for.
I use this setting spray a lot. I use it to wet my sponge and brush before applying my make up. I also spray it directly to my face to set my make up. I really love the results. However, the down side of this item is that it does not have the best smell. Based on ELF’s website at the section “ingredients”, it is clear that they did not use any fragrance to make it smell good.
Hi everyone!!! So I started recently with a new workout routine which involves going to the gym 3 times a week and on any other day I will go for a long walk and run. I know that when it comes to working out, it is not important how fashionable you look. It’s more about having the right outfit and gear while you are working out. Because of this I wanted to give you some basic tips before purchasing any workout items. I will also be showing you some great brands and where to buy them.
If you are doing a workout routine that requires the use of a pair of work out shoes, then you should make sure you are using the right shoes. For example if you are going on a run, make sure you are using running shoes. When I go for a long walk and/or run, I always have my Adidas ultra boost on.
For me it is very important to wear the right sports bra. It should be comfortable, it should give you enough support and I love for them to have a padding in side. If my sports bra has all of these qualities, then almost any top would look good on top.
If you are at the gym, then there is probably music playing in the background. But if not, or you want to listen to your own playlist, then you make sure that you have your own music and earphones. I usually use Spotify to download my favorite songs. And the best earphones for training would have to be wireless earphones like these:
Happy Saturday, loves!!! Based on last week’s post, I rounded up some cute, cool and beautiful pink gift ideas for Valentine’s day. Any one of these items would make an amazing Valentine’s day gift. They can also be grouped together to make an awesome Valentine’s day package. This all depends of course on your budget and the number of people that will be receiving a gift from you. So, let’s get started!
