Happy New Year and My new year's resolutions

Looking back on my first post this year , my 2012 NY's Resolutions , i realized that i didn't really accomplished everything. But i think that's alright, there is always room for improvement. :)

2012 had been a busy year for me and a lot has happened this year, i graduated from secondary, i celebrated my 18th birthday, i went to Spain for the first time, i had my first job and of course first salary etc. it had been a fast year like most of the past years but this one, i think, it passed a lot faster.

OOTD : preppy nerdy x Firmoo and free glasses for everyone!

hello everyone, it has been a while since i posted an outfit here, so here i am with a new preppy style outfit. 
i wore this outfit last Sunday to 4 parties, yes four! it was indeed a very busy day for me. i needed something that i can wear to all of this parties because i didn't had the time to go back home and change from one outfit to another.  i went to 2 "confirmation parties " and 2 christmas parties.

i chose this outfit because it's an outfit that is not so casual nor so classy. it is preppy. 

Make sure to read till the end because in this post i collaborated with Firmoo sunglasses. and in this post you will know how to get free glasses. so make sure to check it out.

How to : fixing broken makeup.

broken makeup :(
we all had broken makeup powder right? i mean, yeah right? and it always piss me off ! because in a year i can break 4 makeup products. they either fall of my hands because of my clumsiness or i put it somewhere in my bag, and due to a lot of shock, it broke. 
expensive or cheap
new or used up already
favorite or not
we  had this situation.

so, i decided to do a post about  fixing my makeup powders. you can use this SOS for broken eyeshadows, powder foundations, pressed powders, powder blushes etc. 
it is really a quick method to revive your makeup. the materials needed are already at your house. 

materials needed: 
-rubbing alcohol ( best to use 90 %, but i don't have it, so i used 70% )
- wooden spatula/toothpick/tongue depressor/needle or anything else that can mush powder
-tissue or a cloth
- and your broken makeup of course

REVIEW : Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation / Fond de Teint Healthy Mix

hello everyone, i would just like to thank you for your tips on my last post , about Blogger's photo limit . if you have more tips for me, i would love to hear it there :)

so , today's post is about a product that i really love. This product is my most used foundation of all time. It is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. First of all, if you don't know yet, Bourjois is a french cosmetic company, it sells almost everything, from face products to nail products, to shampoos and body washes. Bourjois  is somewhat a brand between cheap ,affordable brands like Rimmel and Catrice  and high end brands such as Chanel and Dior. Bourjois  owns Chanel, which explains the similarities of their products especially their blushes. 

some people say that is is comparable with the Chanel Vita Lumière, but i can't really tell that because i haven't tried the Chanel one yet .

so here's the review about this Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation :

OOTD : keeping it casual

hello everyone, i hope you're all doing good. well me , i'm really good and happy for unknown reasons :) i just feel happy :)
by the way, here's another outfit of the day . i just kept it casual yet not that so because of the blazer. that day i just went to run some errands, i went grocery shopping with mum and enrolled for language courses and passed some CVs or résumés at shops . 
this is one of my fave blazers of all all time, because it's longer than normal blazers. i also liked that it is made of cotton which made it comfier to wear. 
so back to the outfit, here it is :

DIY : Yogurt Mask and Happy Halloween :)

oh, how i love Do-it-yourself mask and other beauty recipes.
i just love to use natural products on my skin, and for me they're the best.

this mask is a NO NO for those who have allergies on dairy products .

sorry :|


yogurt, yoghurt, or however whatever whichever you spell it, it's still yogurt.
i personally don't eat yogurt, but then months ago, i saw various videos on YouTube about yogurt masks.
and then i tried it shortly.
so, why yougurt??

stop with the rambling, here's an OOTD for you. me in normal days, when i just get comfy.

REVIEW: ESSENCE I LOVE ROCK gloss eye pencil : + swatches

hello hello my loves.
as the title goes, this is going to be a review about

ESSENCE I ♥ ROCK gloss eye pencil

first of all, this is my second eyeliner from ESSENCE, and i was really upset for the first eyeliner that i got.
 it was their basic kajal pencil. and it is just so dry!
if you don't know ESSENCE, basically it's a cosmetic brand that sells really good quality products for cheap prices, like lip liners for 0.99 cents, or lipglosses for €1.50 . really cheap but good quality.

this one,  like all of their I LOVE edition makeup is worth-buying. probably more expensive than others but not that much since it's limited edition.

all about belts


i just love to wear them. from skinny to wide belts. whenever i feel like i'm going so casual, i just put a belt and the look become sophisticated.
some people say :  she's wearing the belt the wrong way! but no, for me, there is no wrong way to wear a belt.

each one of us has different styles. 

but if you still don't know which belt to use
here are some tips :

wide belts:

- good for highlighting an hourglass figure.
- great way to break up a long torso
- great for "no waist " girls, this is good to create an illusion of a more defined waist.
- good for hiding your tummy too :)

OOTD : Barcelona

Vamos a la Sagrada Familia
 Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família
this well known Roman Catholic Church is one of those iconic landmarks like Eiffel tower, Big Ben and many more,  that i would really love to see. 
i was so intrigued by this church because , if you didn't know, it is still incomplete. 
it's architect, Gaudi is really famous all over the world for his unique style.

another thing that made me really liked it is its UNIQUENESS , every facade is a different style, a different genre. i am not an expert in analyzing monuments or any other ART but i still learned some things in school. so i know that it is Gothic and ART nouveau style as we say in french. i just really loved it.

i think i should stop there. this might look like a travel / Sagrada familia information post. hahaha :)

if you want to see more photos about Barcelona , feel free to check THIS TRAVEL POST!

back in the OOTD: 

just being casual and girly that day. it was so hot so wanted something loose, a skirt.
the skirt was actually so big for me that i have to tuck it in in a belt.

i didn't really stayed there for a long time, just for 5 days and for 3 days i was in a CONFERENCE, a YFC conference and i had fun!  so i just have a day to visit Barcelona. 

here are some photos we took

ELF (EyesLipsFace) Haul

hi girls!! sorry for my lack of post lately.
I've been really busy, i was busy travelling with my family :)

so, as the title goes, here's my ELF orders.

they came really fast, i ordered them on Sunday then it arrive Tuesday afternoon!

i will not do a complete review on these products YET  ,just first impressions and observations because i want to try them first :)

what's inside :

For Eyes Products:
- All Over Cover Stick in Light Beige: i will actually use this as an under eye concealer as it is lighter than my skin tone . i really love the smell of it :) the first time i used it, i noticed that it is really PIGMENTED ! :) but it don't have a lot of product in it, but it's okay as i is really pigmented.
- Zit Zapper : i thought hat this is a tiny product, but no. so yea, didn't test it yet,.

Zit Zapper and All Over Cover Stick

-" Blending eye brush "and "eyelash and brow wand" : these two are re-purchased . i just love these brushes. i use the "wand" for my eyebrows and they're perfect. and the Blending brush , well, i use it as an eye shadow brush , a concealer brush and many more. i like it, but it's not really fluffy for a blending brush.

Lip Products:

-Therapeutic Conditioning Lip Balm: i just like it's smell.will review soon ! :)
-Glossy Lip Shine ( Cream Goddess set): i like the smell too. and it had a lot f product not like the other lip glosses. and that's why i bought it too .P.S i love the colors in this set :)

Face products:

-Complexion perfection Powder: it has four different colors inside, and when you mix them up all together, you'll get a whitish powder. i was afraid to use it, as i have olive skin tone .but it doesn't make my face look white :) 

- Cool Bronzer: i'm so happy that it doesn't have shimmer on it :) it's a matte bronzer and WAY PIGMENTED!!!!

so yea:) there ya gooo :)

Jeffrey Campbell's elegant stud ( grey/ white silver loafers )

I just want to share these babies!
Jeffrey Campbell's  Loafers Elegant Stud .
 I've been loving loafers these past few months , i think they are just so comfortable and stylish to wear.
i love loafers but i don't like ballerines or doll shoes. they just make my feet look flatter. 

these loafers are just the best. they can glam up any outfit or may i just say they can just ROCK any outfit. with those studs, and i mean, see that, these loafers are filled with studs. and i love it .

so enough with the blah-blahs here are some closeup photos !

My must-have makeup brushes

make-up brushes
a must have for make up lovers

we all know that it is non-sense if we have great make-up but we have no good make-up brushes.

i always believe that we should invest on good make-up brushes.
because, we use them everyday and they help us to put makeup easily.

of course there is a lot of different makeup brushes out there.

and i may not have all those different brushes,
but with these brushes, i am good and satisfied

so here are my must-haves makeup brushes:

Things i'm loving in the moment!

Hello girls i'm back! school is over and i'm on vacation!

I've been trying a lot of different things lately, things that i am not used to do like re-organizing my closet by color, doing a lot of DIY projects, doing some vintage shopping etc. Oh and doing blog post through my iPad (which i am doing now)

and of course, changing my background, do you like it better ?

It has been a long time since i was really busy with a lot of things, school, family, searching for universities etc.

So today's post is going to be trends or just simply things that i am loving at the moment.

Here they are:
