Holiday/ London Haul (part1 LUSH)

Hello and Merry Christmas guys....!I am back from my trip with lots and lots of goodies...!Let me start by saying I had a great time in London!I saw some of my friends and walked around all my favorite places. It was an amazing Christmas overall and the cold weather made it even better for me since I am a fan of cold weather especially this time of year.
Now on to the first part of my haul. First shop I went to was LUSH! If I could I would have bought twice the amount of stuff but I restrained myself in the end and only got what I really...really wanted.

1. Fairy tail sugar scrub. I am in love with this product. It exfoliates my skin leaving it sooooo smoothe.Plus it smells great and it is so cute...!

2. "Honey I washed the kids" soap. A classic. I haven't used this yet but I have a good feeling about it.
3. "I should coco" soap. This is the ultimate coconut soap and I can't wait to use it.
4. "Ma Bar". This cracked in my suitcase which I am not happy about but that only means I will use it sooner rather than later. I like the way it smells and I think that the cube of brown sugar in the middle is genius.
5."Mister Butterball" ballistic. I got the snowman version of it and it smells so nice and musky and I cannot wait to crack it in my bath.

6."A french kiss" bubblebar. Love love love love loooove the way this smells. French Lavender is one of my favorite smells ever.
7. "I want to believe" bath melt. This sort of smells like tea tree oil which will make it the best choice for a detox bath.
8. "Rock Star" soap. I bought this as a present for my mom. I will let you know what she thinks of it.
9."Snow Fairy" shower gel. This smells like bubblegum!One of the best shower gels EVER.It is more of a summer-scent but who cares?:P
I also got a full size " Strawberry feels forever" massage bar for free. This came with a cute message on a little card written by Martha(the girl who helped me pick out the products in the store). It was a great surprise. I want to give this a try soon.

So...what is your experience with Lush? Have you tried any of these products? Also, would you like me to do Part two of this haul which includes skincare and make-up products?Comment and let me know.


p.s. Thank you for your Christmas comments and messages. I hope you had an amazing Christmas!!!!xoxoxoxoxoxo


off to London!

Hey you guys....!

I'm leaving in about an hour for the airport. My flight is an early one and I haven't slept at all this evening. I tried but I just couldn't...it is probably because of all the anticipation! Anyways...I wanted to wish you all Merry Christmas since I'll be back on the 27th and I don't think I'll have time to go online while I'm out there. I hope you're all having a gr8 time with your families and loved ones.
I'll be back after Christmas with lots of exciting things to share!

Merry Christmas...may all your wishes come true!



November favorites

Well it took me long enough (once more) but I decided on my November favorites.
The pictures are not very clear and I would like to apologize for that however I did try and make it as festive as possible by using my small(yet glorious)Christmas tree, as a background.

Clarins Pure Curl Mascara (in 01).A good everyday mascara. It gives a nice curl and separates my lashes however it doesn't give me much volume so I don't use it for evening/going out looks.

MAC Studio Fix Powder (my color is C3).I have been using this product for months and I love it. It gives me gr8 coverage by itself and sets my liquid foundation equally as well. I highly recommend it!

Two Faced Shadow Insurance. Dare I say I like it more than the UDPP??I do dare!:P
It keeps my shadows looking gr8 longer than the UDPP does and it makes the colors pop.

MAC's "Politely Pink" lipstick.I like this a lot. It is a light pink with slight mauve undertones.

The Body Shop's Nature's Minerals blush in "Pink Quartz".Great cheek color, easily blendable and super smoothe formulation. A great color too.

Last but not least isBobbi Brown's Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner (in 1-Black Ink).Amazing gel liner that lasts for hours.

That's it. Let me know if you'd like swatches for any of the products and I'll make sure I post some.



Dear Santa,

I am now officially in a very very Christmasy mood. Me and my family are just about ready to put up our Christmas decorations and I thought this would be the perfect time to do this post. Before I get started I would like to say that I will be leaving out wishes like: world peace etc not because they are cliche but because they are more spiritual and somewhat personal(at least that is what I think). So, if my stupid adult brain was capable of believing in Santa exactly like my innocent teenage brain used to I would ask for...

1. The Shu Uemura eyelash curler.I heard it is the best on the market and I would love to give it a try!

2. Lush goodies. I haven't been able to get my hands on LUSH for a while now.

3. A Car. I have been trying to get my father to buy me a car ever since I gave mine away to be recycled. I am so desperate I wouldn't mind a long-term lease either.I am now closer to persuading him and I will hopefully be driving this Fiat Panda very soon!!

4.The Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 monogram Canvas handbag. This is pretty str8 forward I think. I love this bag but I can't afford it at the moment however my summer job will give me the opportunity to buy it.Until then I can keep drooling over it.
5. Lanvin "Eclat D'Aperge" perfume gift set. This is one of my favorite perfumes ever and I would like to re-purchase it.
6. A trip to London (I am actually getting this for Christmas from my mom so you can imagine my JOY).
I love spending Christmas in London. Even thought it is the bussiest time of the year there I don't mind since I know London well enough and don't really need to do any touristy stuff. However I will seize this opportunity to shop till I drop and buy all sorts of stuff I can't get here.
7. A job!enough said!
8. Mini mince pies(preferably tesco's) topped with soy ice-cream.YUM!:p
9. Nars powder blush in "Sin". I have been drooling over it for almost 5 months now and I'll finally be able to purchase it!
10. Benefit "10". I have swatched all of the box o powders by benefit and I liked
"10" the most.
11. Sigma brushes("Nice in pink" travel kit) and the ss109.
12. Dan Brown's "The lost symbol". I'm picking this up the day I arrive in London cause I can't wait to start reading it.
13.A gym membership (or better yet a personal trainer :P to whip me back into shape).
14.Some extra prizes for my upcoming giveaway. I have accumulated some stuff but I wish I could have some more.

What's on your Christmas wishlist??



Why MIA?

Hey you guys,

I hope you are all well. I have been MIA lately because I have been ill. I am not sure exactly what is wrong with me. It feels like a cold or a upper respiratory system virus. I felt better a couple of days ago and yesterday I started feeling ill again. I am probably going to the doctor tomorrow but I am hoping I will get better soon since my mom and I are planning a trip for Christmas.

Hope you are all well and not ill like me!

Speak to you soon!
