I am really enjoying Blake Lively's outfits at the moment.Chic and sophisticated but also
preppy. Blake lively is a style icon, she is amazing when it comes to fashion she always looks classy. I really like her old Hollywood look. Lively is known for not having a stylist which I think is really amazing.
Today I would like to share some of my favourite outfits with you :)
Essie's Sand Tropez from the spring 2011 French Affair collection, is a
beautiful very wearable shade of beige. The application takes
concentration, it could be streaky if you aren't careful but even if you
have an imperfect first coat the second coat can easily conceal it. I
took this into consideration as I applied it and had an easy time
overall with the application. Sand Tropez is a beautiful cool toned nude cream polish. One of Essie's best works in my opinion. Classiest shade of nail polish I own. I sometimes pair this up with an awesome
gold glitter polish I have by OPI, and it really does give
that posh, glamorous but neat Saint Tropez feel to it. Just gorgeous!
With its focus on full, cleansing breaths, deep breathing is a simple,
yet powerful, relaxation technique. It’s easy to learn, can be
practiced almost anywhere, and provides a quick way to get your stress
levels in check. Deep breathing is the cornerstone of many other
relaxation practices, too, and can be combined with other relaxing
elements such as aromatherapy and music. All you really need is a few
minutes and a place to stretch out.
The key to deep breathing is to breathe deeply from the abdomen,
getting as much fresh air as possible in your lungs. When you take deep
breaths from the abdomen, rather than shallow breaths from your upper
chest, you inhale more oxygen. The more oxygen you get, the less tense,
short of breath, and anxious you feel.
Sit comfortably with your back straight. Put one hand on your chest and the other on your stomach.
Breathe in through your nose. The hand on your stomach should rise. The hand on your chest should move very little.
Exhale through your mouth, pushing out as much
air as you can while contracting your abdominal muscles. The hand on
your stomach should move in as you exhale, but your other hand should
move very little.
Continue to breathe in through your nose and out
through your mouth. Try to inhale enough so that your lower abdomen
rises and falls. Count slowly as you exhale.
If you find it difficult breathing from your abdomen
while sitting up, try lying on the floor. Put a small book on your
stomach, and try to breathe so that the book rises as you inhale and
falls as you exhale. Continue the practice until you feel calm and relaxed.
added another Lipstick to my fast growing collection of lip products,
and being a huge fan of Mac, I decided to splurge a little and bought
'Chatterbox' has been on my forever growing wishlist,
and when visiting my local Mac counter, I finally gave into temptation!
I can't tell you how pleased I am that I did!
The only way I can think to describe this colour is as a very wearable hot
pink, it's bright, but not too loud and in your face, very pretty! This is one of my favorite lipsticks from MAC as it's the perfect pink. I think this colour would suit almost anybody, it goes with everything and I would buy it again and again! Sometimes I don't wear it to its full 'amplified' status, I apply it lightly and
blend with my finger so it looks more like a glossy stain.
Even if you don't have time to exfoliate your lips, this lipstick will
still look great on your lips- with or without lipgloss. The formula is
pigmented and super moustrizing! This does not highlight any dead skin
on your lips and makes your lips look fantastic. The light vanilla scent
is so nice (unless you don't like vanilla).
Say “bye bye” to boo boos with this fast-acting invisible acne
treatment. It purifies & dries out blemishes and reduces the
appearance of acne-related redness & swelling. Perfect for all skin
types, this clarifying wonder is gentle enough to be used multiple times
a day, but powerful enough to prevent new blemishes from forming.
I have been using this lovely little vial
for years! This Product is designed for spot treatments with a bottle built for travel, you apply it directly to your skin or on top of makeup.
I first bought it about 6 years ago for a nasty little spot that showed up the night before a date! Ever since I've
been hooked. The Alcohol based liquid works incredibly well. I was totally bummed when I only had half a vial left and
went to purchase another one and was told it was discontinued. Seeing
it back TOTALLY just made my day! The package is just lovely. Easy to carry around in a small purse. Great product.. couldn't
live without it.. and DOESN'T smudge your make-up when applied over! :) ♥
Lovely Emily inspired me to write about this topic!
my favourite day and night cream ♥
Loréal Paris Collagen Re-Plumper Day Cream is my new favourite drugstore day cream. I have justpurchased what will be my 3rd pot and cannot
break the habit of using it even though I have a few different unopened
moisturisers waiting in the wings itching to be used. I
think it is never to early to start using a good moisturising cream.
Some people may think that a product from the drugstore does not help as
much as a high end product... But this does definitely not apply for this
beautiful creme. L’Oreal
Paris symbolizes luxury and glamorous, accessible to every woman that
requires the best when it comes to beauty. I believe that this creme is a
Usually my skin does not approve when I change my skincare routine to often, but when I changed to this product my skin was more than happy. My skin is
for the most part dry with an occasional ‘normal’ day here and there, so
my thirsty skin absolutely adores the thick consistency of the soft
white cream. Because the cream is really rich, I tend to use only a minimal amount of product on my clean face morning & evening. Now you might ask me why I use this cream at nightbecause it is a'day creme'. Because the Collagen Re-Plumper Night Cream is even richer and more moisturising, I only occasonally use the Night Cream when my skin is extremly dry or in the colder months of the year. Also If your skin is oily or you tend to get breakouts, I would recommend using the day cream at night as well.
It is a really nice bonus to have collagen in your day and night cream because Collagen is made up of protein fibres responsible for the structure of the skin and when you get older these fibres change and become less efficient at providing support… and the signs of ageing will appear.
Both creams leave my skin not only looking fresher but also feeling softer.I use small circular motions to apply the product onto my face and neck and I tend to wait about 5 minutes before applying makeup over the top to give the rich formula time to sink in properly. Since I have started using this product I feel like my skin is addicted to it. It's a nice decent light cream that leaves a soft satin-matte finish, definitely not greasy but not true matte either. The product is delicately scented with a cosmetic fragrance which is really pleasant, it is really soft and smells great.
' L’Oréal Paris Collagen Re-Plumper Day and Night are innovative hydrating
formulas enriched with collagen that leave skin feeling smoother and
plumper. The creams deliver a daily amount of pure collagen to help
reduce wrinkles and give skin back its bounce.'
Last but not least I will have to say that these products will last you quite a long time since they are really rich and work great together.I also have a more 'expensive' / high end day cream which I love, and occasionally use. I will review this cream in one of my next posts. ♥
Especially after a long day and a short night, my under eye dark circles are extremely noticiable. And sometimes covering them with more make up just makes it worse. In the past I was horrified to wake up in the morning knowing I will have to wander around like a tiered monster all day. Finally I have found a product that minimizes my dark circles. It works beautifully after a night out with the girls, or when I had to pull an all-nighter to study for an exam. Garnier Youthful Radiance Caffeine Eye Roll-On is a miracle. The Roll-On combines an ultra
refreshing massaging roller-ball with the stimulating effects of
caffeine to eliminate the appearance of puffiness from tired eyes. The cooling roller-ball instantly wakes me up and feels really nice on the sensitive skin. It also helps to reduce the redness under stressed eyes. The
hydrating gel formula also contains grape anti-oxidants to visibly
reduce dark-circles and help restore natural radiance to the eye contour
I usually roll on the liquid in the morning 2 minutes before I put in my foundation on. This way the gel can dry and it works wonderfully under make up. The liquid is very light on the skin and the skin quickly absorbs it. If there is any gel left I gently pad my eye area with my ringfinger to distribute the rest of the product. You should use the ring finger because it is the weakest finger and it will not do any damage to your sensitve and thin skin under your eyes. You can see instant results when you glide the Roll-on over your dark circles. Please don't ask me why it works, it just does ♥. Especially on the outer corners of my eyes the shadows are gone within seconds. I don't have any knowledge about how this Roll-on stick works with really dark under eye areas, mine are visible but not extremely bad. It lasts for a very long time. I use it every morning without fail and I am using for 3 months now. I also think that the packaging is really bright and attractive.
If you are looking for a new skin care product you should definitely try this one out. It retails for 10.49 £. In my opinion worth the money and I am going to repurchase the Roll-on.
The only thing it will not be able to replace is a nice cup of tea/coffee in the morning to start your day right and to wake you up. But it will help you to look more fresh and relaxed!
