To Resolution or Not

NY resolution quote

Hey friends,

It has been awhile since we last chat! ¬†And can you just believe that it is December! ¬†We are literally at the end of the year! ¬†I believe you’d agree with me that the time is just going faster and faster each year.

How has your year been so far?  Do you write New Years resolutions?

Touch Up Your Sunscreen.

Hello beautiful people!

I hope your day is going great so far!   Today, I want to share with you a really exciting post.

Me and my son, we have been really enjoying the warm weather; we go out a lot, play at the park, have a picnic, do water play at the backyard – basically we have been outside, in the Sun a lot these days. ¬†I always apply sunscreen in the morning underneath my make up, however, I can not re-apply my¬†sunscreen on top of my make up when I am going out again in the afternoon. ¬†All of the spray-on sunscreens that I found always say “do not spray directly on face”, and there is no way I am applying a thick sunscreen cream/lotion on top of my make up – it will be a white, hot mess.

Then a couple months back as I was walking around Sephora (as I usually do, a lot), I found these products – and I was like “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL THIS TIME??”.

So I bring them home with me, test all of them out, and here is my thought..

Bedside Beauty Station

After a whole day of school, work, kids, whatever your business is, the thing that you want to do is to just go straight into your bed and snuggle up under the blanket.  However, even though we are asleep, our skin can still benefit from our skin care ingredients.  Hence, I have a few products that I know will work as I sleep, so that when the morning comes, my skin will be soft and nicely hydrated.  So, here are the products on my bedside table..

Review | Loreal Paris La Palette Nude 1

This product has definitely surprised me.  In a good way.

Ever since Loreal Paris launched their latest palettes, La Palette Nude 1 & 2, the blogging and youtube world have been throwing their opinion on these products.  I have read and watch many reviews, which has a lot of mix reviews, people who love them, who hate them and those who don’t care much about them.  I was so confused and decided not to get any of it.   However, I just can not stop wondering about it everytime I went to Target, or any drugstore.  So curious, I decided to get the num√©ro un palette (yes, I just google translate that) and tried it for myself.  And here are my thoughts..

Summer 2015 | Lips Picks

Hellooooo guys!!

It has definitely been awhile since my last post..  I’ve missed you guys, missed blogging so so so much!

But I am back and today I am going to share with you my favourite make up products: LIPPIES !

As the official first day of Summer is only a few days away, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the lippies from my collection that I have been wearing and am excited to wear through out this Summer.

I love doing this every season and every once in awhile, [you would understand this only if you are a lippie-junkie like I am] switching up my everyday lippies as it makes me use most of my collections instead of just using 1 or 2 go-to colors.

So If you wanna see what my Summer lippies picks, then keep on reading..
