My Top 5 Favorite Lipsticks from Maybelline

No Comments »

Hi my lovely readers! It's time for a beauty post. Today I have a review on five different Maybelline lipsticks. Five shades that I love as they suit me. Have I ever mentioned before that my lip color really depends on my mood! My outfit too...but mostly on my mood.
Here are the names of the five stars of this post:
1. Iced Caramel 625
2. Vivid Rose 904
3. Touch of Spice 660
4. Siren in scarlet 965
5. Red Sunset 960

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick
625 Iced Caramel

This shade is perfect for work. It's a nude color with a little hint of pink. SO PRETTY! It goes on smoothly on the lips and has the right amount of glossy texture. I like the moisturizing formula as my lips get dry during winter. It definitely needs reapplication after eating. This lipstick is so lightweight that I completely forget I'm wearing it. You will love this one, I swear!

 904 Vivid Rose

Vivid Rose is a fun fuchsia shade. This one too goes on smoothly on my lips and is moisturizing. Bright colors like this aren't nice when they wipe off easily or doesn't last long. So when I use this shade I apply it twice. I blot off the excess on a tissue after the first application then re-apply it. I've noticed it last longer this way. This color is a favorite of mine. It's perfect for a day or night look.

 660 Touch of Spice

Touch of Spice is a strictly winter shade for me. It's a matte lipstick which comes off less easily. I wouldn't wear this one if my lips were too dry. My lips need a little prep before applying any matte color. I always scrub my lips with my toothbrush then moisturize it and let is sit at least one hour before application. This color will spice up your winter look.

 965 Siren in Scarlet

Oh, I love this red lipstick. I always prep my lips before applying this one too. This color is simply gorgeous, it's my favorite matte red lipstick.

960 Red Sunset

This shade screams summer!!!
Red Sunset is perfect for day time. It's a bright pink with a neon undertone, very unique and fun. I didn't really like the texture of this one though, it doesn't go on smoothly on the lips.

The swatches are in the same order as in the list above.

I just realized the mole on my upper lip is barely noticeable with Touch of Spice on. 
Well this post is over! Let me know which color you liked the most! What are your current favorite lipstick shades? Comment down below, I would love to know your thoughts and you can also leave some post suggestions. 
And hey it's already winter and the sun was bright today. Haha! These are things you only say when you live on a tropical island. 

The weather will be harsher next month though. I might have some winter trends up on the blog.

Set your clock to beach time!
Today is the 2nd year anniversary of the blog and some vitamin sea is essential on this occasion.
Let me take you to three different mesmerizing beaches in the North East, Butte à L'herbe, Poudre D'or & Poste Lafayette.

The view at Butte à L'herbe is always captivating. I have beautiful pictures of Coin de Mire Island from this beach. It's not the first time that I'm sharing them. The trees are close to the water at this place, so you can relax under the shade and listen to the waves crashing near you.
It's the beach to escape to if you're fed up of crowded locations like Flic en Flac.

We're further down East now, at Poudre D'Or village. I briefly stopped at a coastal public park and admired the view for some while. The big tree right before the jetty, is magnificent, along with the blue sky. 
Again, this place too wasn't crowded. It seemed to me only locals were there.

Our last stop is at Post Lafayette public beach. This beach is rocky and the shade is quite far from the shore. Also these are not calm waters. I've been there only on sunny days but I guess it offers a totally different view on stormy weathers.
The blazing sun really shows up in the last picture.

Italian Resto in Albion

No Comments »

Feeling hungry and you're at Albion, you could stop by Stenio's Pizza for an Italian meal. Someone referred me this place and I read some amazing reviews about it last month.
So, I paid a visit to the restaurant on a Sunday.
 Thank goodness the place wasn't crammed with people at that time. I liked the ambience of the resto. Very quiet! I sat outside because it's nicer and less hot.
It was a special day, so I wanted to try something new and ordered my very first seafood pizza. I love seafood and pizza but I've been always unsure about liking the combination of these two.
 I must say, the reviews turned out to be true and I chose the best place for a first time experience. I got served quickly and loved my meal. The seafood taste didn't overwhelm the pizza at all. It was very different from commercial pizzas and tasted homemade at its very best!
 Have a look at the delicious meal I had below! Next time there, I'll try the Carbonara pizza.

Good Morning #5

Green is soothing to the eyes and this morning I'm taking you to Sophie Nature Walk.  
Going further into these woods, take you to the shores of Mare aux Vacoas. It's a nice place to stop by if you need a dose of nature. The sound of the leaves rustling as the wind blows through the trees is blissful. There is also a great diversity of plants and trees. 

My Ibiza Collection

You know you got the right sandals when you feel on vacation wearing them.
I love my sandals collection from Ibiza. Each of them are unique and achieve different looks.

1.      Effortless & Fancy

This pair is my latest purchase. I opted for something in rose gold, for a less casual look. I also find flip flops with double straps on the outer side to be more comfortable. They hold my feet better. Plus the little crystals on the straps are so perfect.

2.      Gladiator Sandals

These are ankle gladiators with hot pink straps. I adore the fact that I can change the straps if I want to. How awesome is that! I didn't think twice before getting these. Instant love!

3.      A Pop of Blue

A pair of closed toe sandals is a must have for me. I was initially looking for one in brown, to go along with almost any outfit but I ended up buying these blue sandals. I love the colors, gold, aqua and dark blue.  Also the rubber-material makes it so easy to buckle the straps. Makes my life easier!

4.      Closed Back Thong

I've shared these red sandals a lot of times on the blog. I love the metallic zig zag on the strap.
A mini Haul

5.      Take Me to the Beach

These are my beach flip flops. Sand can get your sandals really dirty. These flip flops are easy to clean up. I made the perfect color choice here. I've had these sandals for years, they've travelled a lot. 😄

Yayy!!! You've made it to the end of the post. Thanks for reading.
I would love to know more about your sandals collection.
