First bloggy blog post since 2018 started heyyyyy! Now I’m going to start posting on Thursdays and Mondays, hopefully, I can do it. So as you may know, I’ve been on holiday for about a week and it was such a fabulous break. I went to:
- Chamonix, Mont Blanc (🇫🇷)
- Evian-Les-Bains (🇫🇷)
- Geneva (🇨🇭)
DISCLAIMER: This post is by no means meant to show off or brag about anything. If you don’t like these kinds of posts, please skip over and maybe read one of my other blog posts you might enjoy.
A Rose Quartz Necklace
This is a really pretty necklace that I got from Chamonix. Since crystals are in their culture I thought it would be almost illegal not to buy a necklace! Apparently, this one is great with situations which require creativity and the written word (my blog!).
A Crystal Soap
Don’t worry, I’m not addicted or anything! It’s just that this was too pretty and smelt way to good to pass. Where would I find this anywhere else anyway?
A ‘Merci Handy’ Refreshing Face Mist
I was actually not going to get this but then I saw that it was half price and relatively cheap. “ The art of mind changing discounts “. After testing, I felt that this spray really freshens your face when you just woke up or are sleepy; it’s pretty good.
2 Pandora Bracelet Charms
Holld Uup! Only one of these is mine, the snowman. The gingerbread is actually my mom’s but we decided to rotate once in a while so … yeah. They’re both really cute and you can’t get them here so we got a little souvenir. ⛄️
and now…last but not least…
Moonlight (perfume) by Ariana Grande
Technically my mom bought this for me because she wanted to get it for my B-day but it wasn’t available anywhere in Dubai. Not even Souq or Desertcart. Say whhaaa? Yes. They are both like Amazon but for the UAE.
And that is the end of my haul! Please comment down below (is this youtube or what) if you would like me to do a review of any of these things, also any blog posts you would like me to attempt.
Fav. beauty products atm?
Aaaas you may know from a previous post, I have decided to try out the ‘Weekly Photo Challenge’. Seems pretty interesting so, yeah!
This week’s topic: GROWTH
This photo links to growth for me because there are ideas growing, sprouting and becoming bigger and better. Also, the pictures in the background add a touch of people and nature growing because it’s as the time passes by. It may be a weird interpretation of the topic, but hey, that’s me !
Have you started anything new this year?
This weekend my BFFL came for a visit ( thisprettygirlslife.wordpress.com ) and we had dinner at Bianca Mozzarella & Co. and the food was super delicious.
My favourite dish was ‘Penna Alla Siciliano’, it’s a dish which has penne, tomato sauce, mozzarella and eggplant. We also ordered a ‘Burrata in a Jar’ which was absolutely scrumptious, there was so much cheese and some delicious tomatoes and leaves. Leaves? Probably not so delicious, but, give them a chance.
My least favourite dish was the pizza, which was supposed to have mushrooms and truffle but there was literally no truffle on the pizza, which was quite disappointing.
Noelle was suddenly addicted to my camera so she took loads of pictures of me, the ones of the food were taken by me though.
What’s your favourite Italian dish?
I recently stopped by Lush to just check out some of their new products for the Christmas range and restricted myself to just buying four things; no matter how hard I wanted to buy more.
I bought two from the Christmas range and two of their normal products:
- ‘Shoot For The Stars’ bath bomb
- ‘Snow Fairy’ fun soap
- ‘Sugar Daddy-O’ hair conditioner
- ‘Juicy’ shampoo
Shoot For The Stars
‘Honey-scented sparkles of Brazilian orange and bergamot waltz with swirling, golden stars, creating a world of cobalt colour. As the calming blanket of shimmering, midnight blue unfolds, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils combine to send your mood rocketing up to the stars.’ I haven’t actually tried this one out yet but the description and the scent are sooooo fabulous.
‘This colourful, candyfloss-scented fun is a little bit magical. Handmake your own festive fairy in soft pink and set her at the top of the tap so she can cast a spell over bathtime. Crumble a little under running water for streams of spellbinding, candy-coated bubbles which turn the water into a wonderland of sweetness, or lather up in your hands for a sugary sweet body wash.’ I think that Snow Fairy is not a very popular scent because some people find it too sweet, but I think it’s a really great smell and I haven’t smelled any other Lush product that smells similar.
I Love Juicy
‘Packed with fresh fruit to deeply cleanse and clarify hair. This is a fruit cocktail for the hair to cleanse and refresh it, softening seaweed to leave your locks super-shiny once they’re extra-clean. Freshly juiced pineapples, kiwi, mango and papaya are full of enzymes that help break down excess sebum (oil) on the scalp, leaving hair looking and feeling fresh and clean.’ This shampoo is really good because it actually does everything it says in the description and leaves your hair smelling really good.
‘With richness beyond compare and a fondness for blondes, Sugar Daddy-O is one to watch. Lighter shades will remain classy, not brassy after a few strokes with this pretty purple solid conditioner. It’s full of luscious linseed infusion and argan oil to nourish. A floral bouquet of violet leaf absolute, rose and bergamot creates an intoxicating fragrance that will last on hair all day. Work the bar between the hands before applying a small amount into wet hair; a little goes a long way.’ This conditioner is pretty cool because it’s a bar and is super massaging when you rub it into your hair, it’s really good.
