Fall Roses

I haven’t shared an outfit with you in a while now. Mainly because I didn’t have my cameraman aka my roommate available to take some shots and I had nothing to wear – first world problems, I know. Towards the beginning of October I convinced my roommate to come outside and take some pictures. The weather that day was really great and the leaves were already on the ground with a nice orange/brown color, basically the best fall day you could wish for. Even though fall isn’t my absolute favorite season, it’s still pretty cozy.
   

Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette

It wasn’t that long ago that the new desert dusk palette by Huda Beauty came out, and as the devoted fan that I am – I had to get it. It was a Monday morning that Cult Beauty sent out an email announcing that the palette was ready to be sold. It didn’t take me that long to throw it in the basket and click “order.” A couple of days went by and I was suddenly a Huda Beauty product richer. I didn’t really get a chance to swatch the colors completely as I wanted to film a video where I play around with the colors and talk a little bit about it. This time the look became quite bronzy, but I definitely want to do a look that’s more purple toned in the future.

ASOS A/W FINDS

It feels like I find myself on ASOS more often than usual and every time that I’m on there I find something new and interesting that I want to order. It probably sounds like I have a shopping problem, but I rarely order things from ASOS – I just like to look. This time I found myself looking for some pretty similar things and they all involve long dresses, whether they’re in the form of a shirt, wrap-around or simple knit-dresses. It’s also almost time for me to go back to uni since my semester start is next Monday, so I’m definitely on the lookout for something to wear to classes when I want to look a little bit presentable. Besides that, it’s going to be cold very soon and I need something that’ll keep me warm as well, not that all my picks do, but they’re great fall picks.
   

OMG! I Tried a Bubble Mask

A while ago I received a bubble mask with my Celesti bag. I’ve been wanting to try it out for such a long time, but I just didn’t have the time to pamper myself. However, looking at how dull and tired my skin had become, I realized that it was time to give it some care. Oh, and before I continue with this review I just want to apologize for the horrible eyebrows. No one is perfect.

DIY Rose Scrub

I love a good scrub, especially the one by Zoella, but lately I’ve been really into using as few products as possible on my skin, which is why I decided to make a sugar scrub with roses. I’ve made this scrub so many times and I always run out, so I thought that I’d share the ‘recipe’ on the blog with you guys, so you can try it too. My mom had just bought a bouquet of red roses, so I decided to steal one from her and a second for decoration (you know, for the picture.) Sugar is really moisturizing and helps get rid of dead skin cells, which gives you a nice and smooth finish. Roses don’t just smell nice, they also have great skin benefits. They’re known to be antibacterial and can actually help relax the skin. Coming from a Middle Eastern family I’ve grown up with...

Celesti – August 2017

I’ve been getting Celesti bags for a couple of months now. Some have been really good and others average, but I haven’t been completely disappointed with anyone yet – this month is not a disappointment, don’t worry. However, I do think that the content has been pretty average and a little bit boring except for a product or two. This month’s theme is called “Glam Life” and is about creating a glamorous look with the products given.
   

Current Cravings – August

I feel like my style changes every month. Mostly it depends on my mood and the weather. This month I’ve been looking at different outfits that would be great for fall. My summer wardrobe is reaching its end and it’s almost time to embrace the darker colors. ASOS is literally my favorite webshop when it comes to fashionable clothing for great prices. I like to splurge on some designer items, but sometimes I also want something similar, but for a lower price.

YSL Cardholder

It is with great excitement and relief that I can finally get rid of my old cardholder that I purchased from Primark a while ago. I was in need of something to put my cards in and didn’t really like that they were swimming around in my bags. When I go out I usually carry a small bag, so having a wallet doesn’t always fit in there – hence the need for something a little bit smaller like a cardholder. 

Current Cravings – July 2017

It’s been a while since I updated the blog and just like last time my disappearance has seen the light because of all the work I had to do at home. We’ve been working on changing a lot of things at my parents place and my mom’s kitchen has been taking forever now. Who knew floors and a fridge would take such a long time? Definitely not me. But, time is on my side and last night I found some lovely things from ASOS that I couldn’t resist sharing with you and as little apology for leaving the blog so empty. I may be the one who’s over dramatic, but here are some great statement pieces to rock this summer!   {Trousers – ASOS, printed coat – ASOS, ruffle top – ASOS}
   

Celesti – June 2017

Here the other day I received June’s Celesti bag. With huge excitement I went home and opened the package to discover that the theme of this month is called “All Eyes On You,” which is about stealing the stage and getting all the attention drawn to you. Some of the products are from a brand called Starlooks, which is completely new to me, but I do have to say that I’m crazy about the pigmentation and how well the application is. To make the unboxing a little more interesting I decided to make a video showing you all the things that were in the bag as well as swatch, so don’t forget to press play!

Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette & Liquid Matte Minis

Back in May I purchased the Huda Beauty highlighter palette. Cult Beauty had finally announced its arrival at their webshop and as the ultimate Huda Beauty fan (that I 100% am) I went ahead and got it as fast as possible. After throwing the palette in the basket I saw these mini matte lipsticks that I’ve been eyeing for some time and decided to throw them in as well. They’ll fit perfect in my bag whenever I’m on the go and don’t want a huge lipstick taking up a lot of space.

Maybeline Color Drama Lip Contour Palette Review + Swatches

Here the other day I went out shopping with my mom because my hometown was hosting its annual sales day where a lot of stores sell their products for less. We didn’t really find that many interesting things, but we certainly did love the food that was on sale in Helsam, the mulberries and snack bars were so inexpensive! After walking around for an hour or so we decided to go to Matas as the last place and then head back home. As we entered Matas my mom found these amazing smelling rose shaped soap bars and took them to the cashier to pay, but while she was getting ready to pay I spotted the lip contour palette from Maybeline that I’ve been wanting to try out for such a long time, so I quickly grabbed the ‘Blushed Bombshell’ palette and paid for it.
