Makeup Items I love this month

Here are three items I absolutely love and am using everyday this month.

~ estée lauder, double wear light
This is a foundation. You might have read, heard about it a lot by now. I now it's pretty famous amongst the blogging world. I finally decided to go back to foundation as winter is approaching. I like this one as it's not too heavy or too different from my skintone. I don't think anyone wants to look orangey.

~ m.a.c cosmetics concealer
My Nars running low I settled for this baby after thinking and comparing different products. I almost got the liquid one but was advise by a friend to do otherwise. So thanks again to you, chica! It's a first for me to use a concealer that is not liquid. Honestly, I love this product and how it looks and still covers my dark circles quite well. It last all days too! What more can a girl ask for ? Maybe sellers at M.A.C that are not a** ! I used to go a lot in this store a couple years ago. I do not remember that there were so many obnoxious tools there! I guess our mind only remembers the good.

~ real technique brush
Being a Real Techniques lover I could not say no to this brush. I use it to apply my new concealer and pretty much any concealer of any sort or such. I love it as always. I REGRET IT NOTHING, my dear empty wallet haha !

There's more to life than just great hair
but that's a good place to start.

I am currently using those two. My Redken shampoos are now all empty so I decided to try a new brand. Having already tried one of their product, I thought to myself why not. I like how shinny my hair are afterwards. I love the smell as always. The only thing I might regret is how heavy and full of chemicals they both are. But other than that, I have no complaint. They do their job just fine. I have included them in my hair routine as you might see by how of the bottle is twisted haha. Sorry about that. However, I am not sure I'll buy them again.

Do you like Aussie?

Two Skincare products I loved this month

I have been trying those two for a while now and I absolutely love them. I think I love the smell, the texture and how it feels on my skin. It's my new night skincare routine. I was afraid - as I'm always before trying on a new product. I have a sensitive skin so I always go for something without too much high risk. Being a big fan of Origins, I tried this product this summer, as I was offered a sample. I fell in love with it and decided to adopt it as soon as my old one would be running out. So I did. I changed up my skincare routine by switching my empty Nuxe product for the new Melvita one you can see on the picture above. I love the smell and how quick and easy it's to apply it. So far so good for both products I tried. I would definitely recommend both of them!

And you, what are your favorite skincare products this month?

My new Lush addiction

I got this one during my trip to England this summer. And I absolutely looooooveee the Angels on bare skin cleaner from Lush. From all the face cleanser I have tried from Lush, it is my all-time-favorite.

It works quite well with my sensitive and mixed skin. I was advised by a very nice lady to try it ... but aren't they always so helpful and nice ?

I’ve been using this product for about four months. I love the smell of the cleanser. But once again, Lush Products always smell so nice! It doesn't make my sensitive skin shiver. It also helps with the "mixed skin" aspect of my skin. Every time I use it I feel like my skin is just better, cleaner and prettier.

6 reasons why you're growing up - or old.

Nobody feels like an adult. It's the world's dirty secret.

♢ You're no longer having a panick attack at the simple thought of ordering fastfood on your own.

♢ You often think : " Fuck it. I'm too old for this shit. "

♢ You have no clue. You litterally do not know anything about everything in your life right now.

♢ You have a hard time understanding the teenage slang.

♢ You have a household chart and it is completed on a daily basis.

♢ You feel quite nostalgic about your childhood.

Don't worry it gets worst... Oops I meant better. *I am joking, do not take this seriously*

* the photograph abouve is from my dear friend Louise. It was taken during a trip to the cliff of Moher in Ireland. We lived in Ireland for 2 months. I miss Ireland ever since. Louise if you see this photograph, we need to go back asap! And I miss you, my friend.

Is the famous Konjac Sponge the key to a better skin ?

For my birthday, my best mate offered me this little sponge. As one might know, I was thinking about trying this konjac sponge for a while. Thanks to her, I was able to try it.

My first reaction was : " what on earth is that thing ? It feels so weird. How do I use it ? " I think if you've tried it yourself, you probably felt the same. It's very unusual. Even if it felt kind of weird, I kept on using it. I did some research on the Internet about the plant of "konjac". I found out that it comes from "Amorphophallus konjac" which can be used to loose weight (apparently!). It comes from Asia. The konjac plant of Asia produces a starchy fiber used in many health foods of Japan.

Now, I use it almost everyday. I'm very pleased with the results. I was quite worried since I have a pretty sensitive skin but it appears not to hurt my skin. I feel like my skin is better when I use it.

The one I have here is from Kiko Cosmetics but I think nowadays it can be found pretty much everywhere.

a ship at harbor is safe but that's not what ships are for.

« Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. »

I sincerely think it makes a difference. And you can make a difference in someone's life. A small gesture can change a mood so easily. I've seen it. I have felt it. And I'm sure you did too. So what are you waiting for ? Go on and go change the world.

A little step... Toward greatness comes from the heart.
