New Year’s Resolutions: Skincare

Ever since moving to a different city I’ve kind of neglected my whole skincare routine a lot. It all started with my exfoliating toner running out and me not repurchasing it, I then stopped using flannels/ muslin cloths on an everyday basis because I didn’t want to throw them in the washing after a days use and quite frankly I don’t have enough clothes to fill up a washing machine every week. So instead of being confronted with not having any cloths left because their all dirty, I stopped using them all together. Stupid I know! Continue reading

4 for killer cheeks

IMG_4949

Sorry for being M.I.A the last couple of days. I had a stressful few days plus I didn’t really have anything exciting to tell you about. I don’t ever want to post about something I don’t personally love and enjoy at the moment, because I feel like that affects the quality of the content and the post overall.

But I’m back now, and I wanted to share my personal favorite way to create ‘dem killer cheeks’ with you.

Perfume Sample Hoarding

IMG_4946

When beauty shopping you will always be given a lot of samples. This has gone so far for me that I can’t even sort out which ones to use and which ones to leaves, leading to me ignoring them all together. Even worse, I fear that I might like a product sample where the actual product will be out of budget, so I just don’t even test it. Continue reading

When I actually have time to properly do my makeup, brushes are of course the most important tools. I could work without them, but why? If I can make my life so much easier and mess free. I do have accumulated a few Brushes over time, but if i could only chose 5, these would be my picks. When I thought of this post, I didn’t even bat an eye when piecing them out of my stash that does say something.

Going Natural

I have the greatest sweet tooth imaginable. When it comes to chocolate, I’m all yours. Now everyone knows chocolates or sweets in general are not ones best friend. All these trans fats, processed foods and sugars, have various negative side effects.  That sound highly dramatic, I know. A little never hurts and lets face it is just a soul soother sometimes. But then again we all know pimples result from unhealthy nutrition, sweets also spike your sugar levels and make you crave even more.

So lately I’ve been trying to “cleanse” my eating habits, cutting back on midday chocolate snacks, sugar loaded breakfasts and rather going for healthier options. Not only do they make you feel better, but they can also taste amazing, if you only let yourself be open for it.

My friend and I went to an all natural grocery store a few days ago and picked up some, in my opinion, main ingredients for healthy cooking. Chia Seeds, Coconut oil and Coconut water. I was so excited about my purchases that I just had to share them with you. Yes, I know, silly me, getting all excited over some seeds and oil. Continue reading

One-Swipe Wonders

IMG_4913

Keeping with yesterdays theme of lazy day makeup I thought I’d do a round up of the best most fuss free shadows in my collection. Often times they are the saviors that will have everybody thinking about how much effort you put into your makeup, when really you just did the usual “grab swipe and go”. Best thing about these shadows: All you need is your finger and preferably a blending brush of your choice, to soften and blend the edges..but even that you could use a finger for. Add lashings of mascara, and you’re good to go. Continue reading
