NYX Lingerie... 3 New Entries in my Collection..


Hi everyone and welcome back to my channel.

If you saw my latest video you already know..
Lately I have bought other 3 shades of the

NYX Lingerie

since I was really happy with the first 2 shades

(here's the video of the 2 first shades)


This time I chosen 3 shades very different to each other
even though they are all nudes



Here's

Bedtime Flirt


Which is the more "nude" of the 3
a pinky nude
with some warm
I love this one so much!
A very delicate and easy nude to wear



Then there is

Exotic

which is a red more than a nude to me..
as you can see from the swatches


It is a red for who is afraid to wear red..
I really like it..
very pretty!


The 3rd shade is this beautiful
mauve colour
called

Embellishment


I love this shade so much
a bit more edgy than the other twos
and very unique
perfect for a night out



I leave you the video application in case you want to see how
these 3 shades apply

NOTD // NAILS INC Notting Hill Gate


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

It has been a long time since one of mine

Nails Of The Day

well thanks to Birchbox
today I'm going to show you a new nail polish
which was in my July Birchbox




This is from the brand

NAILS INC

(which I love, I'm a huge fan of this brand)

the shade I have got is

Notting Hill Gate

and it's this pretty bright pink
possibly more suitable for summer
(hence it was in the July box)
but this (november) was the time I was able to try it out


I own so many Nails Inc nail polish
I love the color range
and I love the formulation

This one though
it was a bit sheer for my liking
 here's a picture of my nails
with 2 coats
(which normally is more than enough)

 

It was a bit too weak for me
so I have applied a extra coat
and the finish result was acceptable.

But after all
this shade seems to be weak in pigmentation
in comparison with any Nails Inc
from my collection..

I don't know why

It's a pretty colour... but you need to spend more time
in order to achive a more opaque effect

HYDRALURON Moisture Boosting mask REVIEW


Hi everyone.

Welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm talking about a product
which I received in one of my

BIRCHBOX (es)

The July edition


I'm talking about the

Hydraluron

Moisture Boosting

Mask

from

INDEED LABS

I was familiar with this brand
in fact I remember using one of their serum
(and I really love it)

Hydraluron
is very easy to get
you can get it in Boots
The brand has branched out
to cover any type of issues
so it's very likely that you can get something suitable for you skin type


This Mask was very nice
since it was only one mask... I cant really tell you if it did improve my skin
I can only say that the feeling of after the mask was lovely
I felt my skin super moisturized
(hence Moisture Boosting)
Smooth and Calm

Hyaluronic Acids 
concentrate
A super beneficial recipes especially if your not in your 20s anymore

I really like these type of masks
even though you end up looking for 15 minutes like
Michael Myers


Anyways I loved this product
I love this brand

You can get this product for less than £20.00
with 4 sheets in it
Once at month
for treating yourself to a 15 minutes SPA mood

I recommend it!

I leave you the link
of my unboxing Birchbox of July
in case you want to see what else was in that box

TRESEMME' Luxurious Moisture Vitamin E Shampoo REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my channel.

Today I'm going to talk about a new hair product
which I have been using over the last couple of months
and I have been liking a lot

I'm talking about the

Tresemmé

Luxurious Moisture

Vitamin E
Shampoo

I've bought this shampoo from Boots website
and I was lucky enough to get it with 50% off

Considering the size of this shampoo
(900ml)
paying below £3.00 felt so good!

My hair is damaged
and dull
and Vitamin e can really help it

In fact since I have used it
I have noticed a big improvement on my hair

It feels more healthy
and smooth
and it also looks more shiny

I'm very happy with this product
I can see myself repurchase it several times

I recommend you to try it out
if you have the same type of hair as mine

Anatomicals The Buff Stuff Citrus Body Scrub REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today blog post is about a product
that once again I discovered
on my
Birchbox

August 2016
called

Dive In


I'm talking about

ANATOMICALS

The Buff Stuff

Citrus Body Scrub


What I love about this product
is the scent
It has a very energetic Grapefruit scent
I love the fact that is free from parabens too

BUT

afterall I wasn't in love with it
the reason is in the product itself

I don't like the consistency of this product
 a watery jelly consistency
with some bids in it
Since I used it while I'm showering
I don't see the point of a jelly consistency scrub

I would have love it more if it was more like a lotion
or a shower gel (that formed while you rob it in)
instead this does NOTHING

I don't know how to explain it..
but I wasn't too impressed by it


I used it up..
and as I said I love the scent
and the bids did their job
but the consistency put me off unfortunately

but maybe it's just me..

Have you tried this product?
Let me know if you have and what you think about it.

This one is equally yummy

but these ones by Twinings
are AMAZING

which I have found in one of my
Birchbox

I guess it was the JUNE one
here's the video in case you haven't seen it.


Anyway

this is

WHISH

Three Whishes

Being a small test size, I wasn't able to use it for a long time
but I didn't really need a long time to make up my mind.

This product really surprised me
it doesn't only smell great
(a mix of almond and raspberries)
and also feel super moisturising on the skin


This is a

Paraben
Sulfate
Dea and Tea
Petrochemical

FREE!!!!!

It's an organic product made with
organic shea butter
organic raspberry butter
organic aloe
organic seaweeds extracts
and organic rice bran oil

all these

Moisturise
Firms
and Purifies

I have never heard of this brand before Birchbox
so I'm glad I did get the chance to try it

The full size of this retails for £14.50
so if you want to treat yourself with an organic
body butter
try this out

SUPERMOON - 14th of November 2016 (Northern Ireland)


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today was the day of the

SUPERMOON

which apparently is the biggest lookin moon
since year 1948


 I totally forgot about it.. 
but I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time.

I was making tea and while I was preparing the cups
I noticed it
from the window.....

the Moon


I ran upstair, picked up my camera
and went as fast as I could outside


I took few pictures and a short video
Unfortunately the moon disappeared very quickly behind the clouds

If I was prepared I would have used the tripod

I couldn't risk it to miss it..
I know it was a cloudy night
and those few minutes were all I had to framed it

Here's the video


Have you seen the Supermoon?

Let me know

TWININGS Ginger Bread Green Tea


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I want to make a shout out to this
amazing super tasty Tea.

I love tea
and I'm the kind of person who seeks different flavours
for different seasons

That's how I discovered this amazing tea.


I'm talking about the

TWININGS

Ginger Bread

Green Tea


I've always known
that Green Tea is very good for you
but at the same time I always found it quite repulsive by itself

Since I tried this one.

The smell of Gingerbread is so strong
that in my view, helps the mind tricking itself
thinking that the taste is also sweet as a gingerbread would be

and to be honest is not..
but since the smell is so overpowering
you can't really taste (completely) the bitterness of the green tea


I'm able to drink few cups a day
with no sugar or milk
and I really love it.

Some people adds milk to their green tea
I have never done so I cannot tell
but this tea doesn't need it.

Gingerbread is so Christmassy

Try it out and let me know what you think if you have.


ciao
