WHAT! May’s Over!

I can’t believe how FAST this month has past right by. Here are my May Favorites

Image

  • Makeup: Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion: I’ve been wearing this more over this month because it’s drastically easier to take off because it’s not waterproof and it coats my lashes lightly and evenly.
  • Skincare (Face): Origins VitaZing Moisturizer: I’ve honestly never been into wearing things with spf in it because I’m slightly allergic but this one is so good and it just works with me so well. I love the fact that it has a sheer tint release too.
  • Skincare (Body): Happy Hippy Shower Gel: it’s such a refreshing smell and I just love how it works.
  • Hair: Moroccan Oil: there are many reasons why I like this but there are also quite a few against this, but I’ve just been putting it in my ends to make it seem a lot glossier and nicer.
  • Nail: OPI NYC Ballet Collection Care to Danse: I love this lilac color. Even though it is sheer, it don’t go on streaky and is just a really amazing color.
  • Fragrance: Paco Rabanne Black XS: again with this but I got one and a body moisturizer for my bday so I decided to get crackin on it.
  • Fashion: my burgundy jeans: the add some color but it isn’t bright so it’s in keeping with the autumn feel.
  • Accessory: Scarves! It’s getting chilly now so out come the scarves!
  • Book: The Handmaid’s Tale: I’m actually studying this so… I actually haven’t read anything else this month (naughty me).
  • Movie: Not a movie but the Sherlock BBC series. I love it so so SO much. It’s made amazingly well.
  • Youtuber: lilcammo93 it’s nice to find an Australian youtuber
  • Blogger: Extra Petite i love her. 😛

That is all for this month’s favorites.

Pinch and a Punch for the First Day of…. MAY!: April Favorites

AHHH! I can’t believe it’s May already and time for another Monthly Favorite! I’m excited though because that means it’s almost my birthday *little celebratory dance* Anyways. So you know how I have a very structured monthly favorites post? Well I want you to tell me in the comments what you think of this layout in comparison to just chatting about what I liked.

Disclaimer: None of these photos that follow are mine.

Make-up

Image

This month, I’ve just been absolutely addicted to my MAC Bare Study Paint pot. It’s just something I sweep over my lid because it’s just so easy! The color is just so natural but the shimmer in it makes my eyes just look more awake. I adore this shadow.

Skin Care (Face)

Image

I have to say, apart from my Clarisonic which is just amazing, the actual skin care PRODUCT that I’ve been using every day and that has just worked so so well for me is the Origins Checks and Balances Foaming Cleanser. It’s so so gentle and together with my Clarisonic, helps to make my skin just that much better.

Skin Care (Body)

Image

I’ve been using my Body Shop Cactus Brush with my LUSH products pretty much every single day this month (like ever other month) and even though this is not a new edition, I’ve just been noticing how good it is now because as we go into the colder months, my skin just gets so so dry and gross but this is just buffing away that surface layer of dead skin that tends to look horrible in the colder months.

Hair Care

Image

LUSH’s Conditioner called Retread. I didn’t even have to think about that one. My hair’s just been not behaving that the ends become really really frizzy and dry and split ends emerge non-stop (damn the cold weather) so this has just been so so amazing. I literally bought this around the beginning of last month and I’m halfway through it and my small LUSH American Cream Conditioner.

Nail

Image

I recently got 3 new OPI polishes and I’ve had on Penny for Your Thoughts for the past week or so and I’ve been loving it because although it a light coppery-orange color, it looks quite nice and natural on the nails (obviously not that natural but you know what I mean). There are some pink reflects in it that makes it just that little bit prettier. Not bad OPI, not bad at all.

Fragrance

Image

I’ve been wearing my Victoria’s Secret Body Mist in Coconut Passion and I honestly cannot explain how much I love this scent. Oh. My. GOD it smells amazing. Only annoying thing is that it’s a body mist so therefore doesn’t last long at all. But if I wanted anything for my birthday, it would be a Victoria’s Secret fragrance. Eternal love! I honestly had the hardest time deciding which body mist to get.

Fashion

Image

I got this really amazing blazer that just looks amazing because you must know that my style can get rather preppy so I just ADORE blazers, I just honestly have so so many. But I just love this blazer so much and it’s just become my favorite that quickly. (Note: mine is slightly different from the one in this picture).

Accessory

Image

Definitely my Miu Miu handbag. Hands down. I just love it so so much and I use it to go out shopping or if I have a class, every single time. (Note: Mine is in a pale nude pink color rather than this color).

Book

I read Fight Club this month, I’ve never watched the movie but I thoroughly enjoyed the book, yeah 🙂

Movie

Haven’t watched any :S

Youtuber

Other than the usual suspects, I’ve been really really loving Evelina Barry from Evelinicutza (a new discovery this month).

Blogger

I absolutely adore leblogdebetty. Her posts are always really great, I love her fashion sense and even better is that she look so much like my friend Julia.

Thank you so much for reading. Tell me down below in the comments what your favorite things of April were.

Disclaimer: All of these products mentioned were bought by me with my own money. This is not a sponsored post and all opinions expressed in this post is honest and my own.

I’ll see you tomorrow

Tag Again!: 10 Little Secrets

Hey guys! I know, another tag! I’m sorry but I’ve been so busy these past few days, especially with just getting back from my vacation so yeah. I’ll hopefully be back into the swing of things tomorrow 🙂

1. What is one product that makes you feel like a million dollars?

Mascara, mascara, mascara!!! I absolutely love it. Because my eyes aren’t very big and tend to be a little droopy if I don’t “lift” it with something, I love to wear mascara. It just makes me looks so much more awake and just improves my confidence by so so much. I can wear no makeup but mascara and I won’t feel naked!

Right now I’m using: Bad Girl Mascara by Benefit

2. What is your skincare secret? / A passed down skin care tip

Oh god, I am NOT someone to be passing down skin care tips, God just look at my skin! But my mom tells me this AGAIN AND AGAIN: after washing your face with a cleanser or whatever you use, make sure to use a toner, especially at night, to remove any excess grease or dirt from the day. You don’t that lingering on your face overnight!

3. Share your hair care secret?

Conditioner!!! Need I say more?!

4. What is your biggest diet rule?

On my little list of posts to do, this one was actually planned for tomorrow because I’ve been on a “get healthy” diet since february this year, and it’s been working out for me so amazingly. So basically, a few quick tips before tomorrow:

– Don’t go on a calorie restriction or fad diet. Those don’t work out because they don’t last and you’ll lose the pounds but then gain them right back. And they’re so bad for you.

– Everyone’s heard this before: DON’T SKIP BREAKFAST!

– and most importantly, I’ve found this to be a really helpful tip. You know when you see something, and you’re not really hungry but you see it and crave it and you just have to eat it. Well, don’t give in straight away. Like if you just had lunch half an hour ago and you’re not that hungry and you know you shouldn’t eat that choc-chip muffin sitting there but you want it. Take a deep breath and walk turn away. Distract yourself. BUT! If you still want it 5-10 minutes later, then buy it and eat it and be done with it! The worst idea is to restrict yourself because when you turn away from the craving then you’re more likely to make a “mistake”and binge/eat something unhealthy at your next meal.

5. Any workout tips?

Have a sustainable schedule. Workout for 30-60 minutes. And do it consistently. Maybe do it with a friend or do a class, that way you can’t talk yourself out of it because you’re being lazy!

6. Which perfume is your secret weapon?

This one is so so hard because I absolutely ADORE perfume! My best friend and I have this thing where for Christmas every single year, we’d get each other perfume. Every year! Haha. But I have to say I adore the Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet for a spring/summer day, the Black XS by Paco Rabanne  for spring/summer evening, Freak by Illamasqua for winter. But sometimes I like to just wear a body spray (Coconut Passion Body Mist by Victoria’s Secret) and I’ve gotten so many compliments on this. I go to hug a friend or whatever and they’re like “oh my god! you smell amazing! what is that?” and this has been more than one person. And guys LOVE this smell because it’s so subtle and you just smell like cookies or something. Its amazing!

7. Show us a clothing item of yours which always turns heads

I don’t have one clothing item but I love off the shoulder tops. They’re not revealing in that you don’t see the chest area or whatever but they’re really sexy in that you see some skin but not enough to seem like you’re showing too much, you know.

8. What is your most treasured piece of jewellery?

I have a ring that my mother got for me for christmas I think 2 yrs ago now. And its this Tiffany & Co. Hearts ring and I just love it to bits!

My mother and I actually have a thing where she gets me a really really lovely piece of jewellery once and year and I really treasure them and I just wear them all the time. Like last year, for my birthday she got me a tiny emerald necklace from Hardy Brothers Jewellers and I’ve basically worn it every day since.

9. Who is your style crush?

I don’t have one person who I just copy and paste off but one of my friends who like so artsy and she does art and textiles and stuff, she’s really inspirational. I love watching people on youtube and I get ideas there. Bloggers as well like Passions for Fashion, Cheyenne meets Chanel, Le Blog de Betty etc. They’re all real people with amazing fashion sense! I also look up to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Nicole Richie. 🙂

10. Tell us something we don’t know about you

Hmm… I don’t know actually… Although I’m an extremely extroverted person and I love people and I make friends really easily, I often become close friends with people who aren’t “good” for me and therefore a lot of my friendships don’t last. But I love to meet new people and I’m always open to hear people out.

So that is all for this tag. Thank you for reading.
