PICS OF THE WEEK- (1)
So, I know that my Beauty Basics posts create a lot of traffic for my blog… So I thought that I should have a weekly Beauty PICS OF THE WEEK….. This will comprise of some of the beauty items I’ve loved using that week. I have also decided to include “miscellaneous” items that are beauty/skincare/me time things to include. It will also include some tips of the week at the end of every post for a weekly BEAUTY TIP.
This series will also have some beauty giveaways and competitions from time to time, to people who enter just as a “thank you’ for popping by, following and responding 🙂 (Keep your eyes peeled for that one!)
Enough “Dilly Dallying” … Lets get into it!!
Beauty PIC OF THE WEEK
The Bobbi Brown Range of makeup has always been a fond favourite of mine, but I hardly use it in winter… but now that one is back in spring, you cant HELP but feel you want your skin to have an elegant glow and finish…
These two products do that for me with so much ease!
The Shimmmer Brick in “Bronze” (Left), is one of the best highlighters that I’ve come across. I LOVE the golden glow that in leaves on my cheeks after applying it. With this product a little DOES go a long way… You must be very soft with your hand when applying it, or you will end up looking like a disco ball! The pay off though is AMAZING.
The Sheer Finish Pressed Powder in “Soft Honey” is another love of mine. I recently purchased my third one, and I find it works exceptionally well in the warmer months, as it controls my oily T-Zone like a DREAM!!! I apply it on once in the day, and don’t have to re- touch my face for the remainder of the day. It’s a very soft and finely milled product, so in its texture it is quite smooth and easy to apply on the face. I love this baby! Whoo…
I was recently in Zara a few weeks ago with my family. Truth be told I never shop in Zara, and on that day, we decided to pop in and have a look. I was PLEASANTLY surprised! Because time wasn’t on our side, shopping wasn’t really an option, so when at the till paying for something, we came across this baby. The Zara Woman “Freesia and Vanilla” Eau De Toilette Perfume! In a nutshell, I have used it EVERYDAY for the past 3 weeks! I cant explain perfume to save my life! So i will give you the notes:
Zara Woman Freesia & Vanilla by Zara is a Oriental Floral fragrance for women. This is a new fragrance. Zara Woman Freesia & Vanilla was launched in 2015. Top notes are apple and pear; middle notes are almond and freesia; base notes are brazil nut and vanilla.
Worth a buy, as the price is quite friendly too!!! 🙂
Anyone who knows me knows I love to keep a small notepad everywhere (in the house, in my car, bag, and office) because ideas and little knick knacks come to me at the strangest time, and I know I often want to jot them down so I don’t forget!
I also love colourful things.
I bought these for my desk at home where I do most of work/blogging and they add a colourful touch to the mostly white surroundings. Now it looks something like this:
A good space to work in, stimulates great ideas. If you love any kind of notebooks, pens and knick knacks like that, have a look at shops like CNA and Typo (My FAVE!) you will have a FIELD day in there!
Now, anyone who has spent a lot of time with me, or has been into my house, knows I’m a BIG lover of candles! Summer, Spring, Autumn, Winter… I ALWAYS have a candle burning in my house.
Recently I’ve been loving these ones (right picture) from the @home store, not only because they smell amazing and last forever, but the packaging is also great as it mixes well with my themes running through the house.
The scent is strong, deep and musky, but is amazing!!!
TIP OF THE WEEK!!!!
Use EYE cream on your cuticles!
The more hydrated your cuticles are, the stronger your nails will be! 😉
Until the next one
Live in Light and Love ❤
