Take Care of your eyes

Not a surprise that we all have eyes on our face, but surprisingly we forget to take care of them. I am not talking about around eye areas! The main topic is "EYES" ! and eye "BALLS" and everything belongs that part. Many of us have been prescribed glasses to read, drive, watching and as are glued to our computers. I have not been that good girl who wears the glasses when it is necessary as I mentioned!  It means many three years of glasses off days! Not cool! Thanks "Scandal Show" which reminded me that I have such a long painful headaches after watching five episodes back to back without friendly lenses on!

Steps to a Party

Planning is the basement of any ceremony, party, reunion etc. About two weeks ago I celebrate my first blog's birthday with a few of my friends in my apartment. It was a small reunion but celebration like! I could handle that with a limited budget and hands!

Make Your Guest List:
I made a guest list of course. I decided to have those who I feel relaxed with in friendship! This criteria is crucial to me for having a party at home! Because It decreases the Hosting Pressure Level.

Send The Invitation:
 I decided to take advantage of Facebook Event! I send the invitation to those who are in my friend list and I wanted to invited. Those who were not in my Facebook friend list were noticed by Email, text message and phone call for final confirmation.

Foodies & Goodies:
After the last list of Coming Guests, I knew how much foodies and goodies I need. I mean the Glasses, Plates, Sweets, cup cakes, snacks...




Music and Entertainment:
Prepare a playlist. Remember what type of atmosphere you want in your party. If you like to have a dance session so go with R&B, Hip& Hop or those other which encourage people to move. In case you are planning a relaxed, chilled bar type of reunion so soft music would be your fellow.

Put Yourself Together:
 Make up, dress and a pair of high heels

Side Note: "If you are wondering why there is a pile of cosmetic products there, I have to tell you my blog is you see is beauty fashion related; So i demonstrate my make up skills on one of my guests and explained the essential info about each part."

Manicure knowledge #underneath



Everything starts from depth. Your home! Your body and your Nail Health either.
The choices are endless to pick one lucky product and pay the money. What makes your purchase pleasing is the benefits it gives you. I got the wisdom of choosing a proper base coat by experience not following the colorful advertisements. There are a long list of reasons that you should apply a base coat underneath your nail color.



 1. Sally Hansen Hard As Nails, Hardener Soin Durcissant : Having nail colors continuously all around the year is strange but almost all girls I know do that. So we need to assist the nail organ to stay strong and not to break. Nothing is worse than a broken nail. In addition the down side of it in your whole manicure, it rips  your expensive dress too!


 3. Sally Hansen Thicken Up, strengthening Nail thickener, action fortifiante : A cause of constantly nail breaking is lack of enough thickness. I have used this base coat thousand times and it does help most of the times.


2. Sally Hansen Triple Strong nail Fortifier : A rich creamy formula as a base coat will add more strength to your manicure; It also prevents your nails to turn the actual color into nasty yellowish, that I am sue all of us know how annoying it is. On the back of the products has said to apply two coats but I do only one.



4. Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Daily Nail Treatment  If you are working hard to grow your nails quicker, plus your vitamins and rich in zinc and biotin diet; have this tiny bottle as well. You can read my post about the beauty vitamins here .

Three trusted make up Bags for Every Occasions



The firs makeup bag which I adore that is the Lip print one. Not only the big red lips is the more suitable symbol for a make up, it is also giant. It doesn't show how big it it. But it suits a whole two days travel make up tools. It can fit many items because it has a wide bottom. It opens by a long zipper a strong handle on top.


Lovely pink with golden zipper, O have talked about the things I keep in if I am a long day out which you can see that here. It has a flat cut. Not wide like the previous one, so it fits less items. Only four to five things. But as it is flat is the perfect size and cut for carrying arounf in your purse.


Having a long trip and I need to have extra things to keep in my carry on for long flights or exhausting hours in air port or organized the flying items in my suitcase.

Dark Nail Colors For Winter

A raspberry nail color  with dark red undertone. In the photo it seems lighter than what it really is. No shimmer in it. This nail polish is perfection for the time it lasts and the color is the ultimate classic range for winter that never gets out of fashion. And why not showing of your hands' skin beauty with a darker color?
Sally Hansen is my absolute favorite brand in drugstore because of its quality. As I said, there is no shimmer in it but it is shinny and lovely even without the top coat. This color is very similar to the next nail color I am going to tell you about. They are freaking similar. It was very hard to distinguish them; I was totally confused which photo is which of them.





2. Marylin Vitamin A -E and Calcium No. 54
This brand seems strange and it really is. It is a brand from Venezuela with a cheap  price tag and medium level of quality. The color is dark raspberry color with extremely dark violet shine.

Revlon Super Lustrous & Revlon Color Burst




I am still looking for a nice drugstore lipstick. Especially in hunt for nude colors. It is my battle that am not happy enough with most of the drugstore nude ranges; mainly because of the pigmentation. I have dry lips and this reason makes me to be picky about that.  


As You see I tried to make these two together and the result was farther than my expectation. Non of these suits me properly as I apply them alone. (I use to apply so many other lip glosses when I am on the go). Nevertheless, the combination of these two is perfect for my lips' condition. It becomes a hydrating shiny nude mix.

REVLON COLOR BURST LIP BUTTER 095 Creme Brulee is a sheer lipstick, as you see is a lip butter actually.

REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS Lip Gloss 205 Snow Pink Rose neige.  It is sticky (that's why I don't like to apply that alone).

What Do You Expect From a Body Lotion?

What Do You Expect From a Body Lotion?

what do you expect from a body lotion by www.tobelikealady.com

Have you ever walked away a stranger and smiled him/her while been asking yourself what the perfume could be? I always ask that person what is his/her perfume is because I can't get rid of purchasing temptation and if I feel lost in the direction... LALA I get crazy!

I am a big fan of nice beautiful scents. It is not enough to not smell horrible, in my opinion everyone must smell beautifully. As times pass by, having more affordable choices, is getting easier. I ask myself how the girls were doing before Soap and Glory, Body Shop, Victoria Secret, Bath and Body Works... These days on budget perfumes are everywhere. But you know which object in this world has more priority than perfume to me? Body Lotions! I worship the Body Lotions and  here you are my reasons:

a. Most of them have a mix of oil bases so it sticks on your skin's surface then makes your perfume long lasting.

b. It gives you you instant skin hydration which means a lot to me.

c. The scented body lotions are lifesavers for summer days, for days indoor and long hours of working and meeting

D. I am an aroma addict! Clear?

 Love Is Heavenly by Victoria Secret Body Lotion This is all in one. It is super hydrating, smells heavenly (honestly) and a kind fellow for the same scented perfumes.


Secret Wonderland Body Lotion with vitamin E, Jojoba and Shea butter Signature Collection by Bath and Body Works It will become your all time signature as it claims. So you must decide before choosing that. I adore this body lotion. The only complain is less expected hydrating power.

Hot or Not? Two Liquid Eyeliner failures





First of all, Excuse me for the pictures. the containers seem so gross! Because it's been a while I was testing these  two products to figure out the pros and cons! And as I am an eyeliner addict so I reach these every day.

The best thing about this eyeliner is, it gives you the chance to line the exact shape you need. No fail! In contrast, the quality of applicator was not what I had expected from M.A.C and the amount of money I paid. Let me clear that; The nib is a cotton pointed material which softens and gets separated easily. It dries quickly as well. I used to paint the shape I wanted and the would make it bold and black by the below mentioned one.

A real rich black and I have painted various winged shaped lines with, means I could take the advantages of that against the down side of it; After a while the liquid material tends to firm. Not into a solid but more firmed than a liquid! That's so annoying and weird.

Two Samples you need in your routine from CLARINS PARIS

Two Samples you need in your routine from CLARINS PARIS




Clarins Paris Multi Active Day Early Wrinkle correcting lotion SPF 15
It says Multi-Active but the amount of cream is not enough to test that for a sufficient period of time and get that Multi-Active effect. So I can't report the final idea about it. However, the lotion type of consistency helps to absorb quickly. It is amazingly hydrating and my skin feels a bit like after applying the lifting sort of creams. It smells amazing similar to the other CLARINS products.

Clarins Paris Gentle Foaming Cleanser with cottonseed Normal or Combination skin
If you have read some of my skincare related posts you know my skin is combination of oily zone and dry patches. So having a face cleanser for Normal skin is not fair! Yeah, I looked at the combination at the end and tried that four times. It is amazing. the texture is so soft; what has mentioned as "Cottonseed" I saw and felt those. It is like a wet chopped silk which you have the chance to clean your face with. I love that!
