NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream | Review

NYX is a brand that I have always wanted to try. I often watch YouTubers from France talking about it and as I am a curious person I really had to try it  for myself and give this brand a go. It is funny to think that I don't very often hear this brand being mentioned in UK but in France its a different story. I guess NYX is more wildly available in my country of origin. Lately I have been re-falling in love with Selfridges in Oxford Street, I mean what is not to love? The ground floor has a layout of many make-up and skincare stands such as MAC, Charlotte Tilbury, Chanel, Clinique and the list goes one and on so basically its the beauty blogger heaven. So when I came across the rather modest NYX stand I have to admit I got quite excited especially looking at their Soft Matte Lip Cream.

Homeware ideas | Easter Edition

Yeeesss it's Easter!! Time for a well deserve break and celebration especially after the dreary last few months and it also means that Spring is here and Summer is not far ahead either *hands up in the air* woopwoop! I cannot wait to eat my weight in chocolate! (I will probably regret it but somehow but I know it will be worth it) and have everything in between that is as just as nice: family time, sofa hangover after tons of foods, DVD watching, countryside walks, large amount tea etc. you name it I'll be there! Among another things that I love about Easter I like looking at all the Easter home ware that is around too. So here a little selection that just screams Easter & Spring but yet can still be kept all year around in your home.

Its All About the Crayon | Beauty Haul

Lately, I've noticed that I've been a bit crazy about crayons. Crayons in all form and colours, for my lips, my eyebrows, eyelids...you name it! I guess it might be a phase but also it might be that they are everywhere and are attracting me like bees to nectar. And yes I found myself in the space of literally few days accumulating a little collection that I am hyper excited to show you. Also I have to admit I've never really been a 'crayon' kind of girl, apart from for my eyebrows, so this new direction is going a little bit outside my comfort zone, I have always been more about lipsticks and mascara than crayons.

Liz Earle Haul & First Impression

I finally got my hands on the 'talk of the town': The famous Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser and I know what you are going to say: "where have I been for the past 6 months?"...I know, I swear I was around and to add even more to my excitement I also got the Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser because.... why not? This little Liz Earle haul is my first, I have never tried it before and you know how it is, when you keep hearing or reading blog posts on a particular product then you just want to try it for yourself. Well, that's what I just did and got myself two Liz Early products to try.

Chocolate Easter Eggs Extra Special

I can't believe Easter is only few days away and I seriously cannot wait! Easter has always been a special event for me, not in the religious way but for me its more like the representation of my family getting together, like many other families, and having a nice and fun time all together and in my opinion it is just the best thing in the world. Also Easter means first of all we are having not one but two bank holidays, I mean... Hello There! Secondly my boyfriend and I are going away from London and get a well rested break in the countryside and thirdly we are going to be able to eat & drink our weight in chocolate, tea, home made cakes & breads you name it! Basically having a food coma for four days but it will be worth it! What about you? Tell me all about your upcoming Easter break plan, I would love to hear them.

Dream Oil Serum by Deborah Mitchell | Review

On the last Bloggers Hangout London Fashion Week Party a few weeks ago, I was introduced to Deborah Mitchell's Heaven collection. I have to be honest this was my fist introduction to this brand which actually has been around for a while and has been praised by many magazines such as the world famous Vogue. Why did I not heard about it before? The mystery is real! But after a long chat with the lovely stand assistant who introduced me to Deborah Mitchell I was getting more and more curious about it especially after hearing that Deborah Mitchell Skincare products are all-natural, organic and Made in UK! You probably know by now that I have a big interest and love on using products that are more eco-friendly and low on carbon footprint. Also its not only it is kind for the environment but to my skin too.

So you want to start a blog | Part 1

I am not in anyway a professional blogger or know better than anyone else, But I would like to share some of my experience and hopefully ideas if you wish to embark on a blogging adventure! I have read not so long ago that the hardest journey of a blogger is in the first 6 months! Get through that and you made it! Basically, you did not quit like a large bunch of new bloggers. I am now entering my 17th month and I haven't slowed down, I am actually blogging even more than before. As I was mentioning I am not a 'professional blogger' so to  speak but I have freaking learned a LOT since I start this blog and if you want a good laugh I suggest you take a look at my first few posts back in 2014, they are rather cringing. Badly written and bad pictures I didn't have a clue, really I did not. 
If you're new to this crazy blogging world or thinking to join the fun then there are a few things you should know and a few things that I wish I'd known right at the beginning. This posts theme will be split into few parts as I think there is too much to say in one post so here is part 1, which will be about the importance of choosing a platform, blog name, design and post.

MAC Lipstick Collection

I know what you're going to think after reading the following that I am not a real beauty blogger but I only just got my first MAC lipstick! or shall I say my first MAC product ever, only one month ago! Booooo!!!! I know!!! What can I say? Better late than never but I have to admit that I am now totally hooked, not so much to the liking to my bank manager but on the other hand, my lips are loving them.

Botanics Skincare Obsession

I do not know how to explain this obsession I have with Botanics Skincare at the moment but I really love them. It might be Lily Pebbles's fault who in one of her beauty videos (find it here), she was praising the Botanics Radiance Balm All Bright range and as I personally trust her opinion, I thought that at such a low price:  £3.99, it would have been wrong not to try it.
