Birthday Outfit and Makeup

It was my Birthday this weekend so I’ve decided to share with you what I wore and what makeup I’ve used. I don’t see Birthdays as a big deal (after a certain age, ha!) but it is always cool to dress up and spend time with friends and family.

Of course, I went for red with a touch of black, outfit wise. And here is the makeup I’ve used:

Vichy BB Cream, I need to buy a full size of it soon, it is an amazing light  base which gives some luminosity.  Rouge Bunny Rouge  Naked Disguise Glide Concealer which is brilliant for the under eye area. Inglot HD Sculpting Powder in 504 is my favourite for that natural looking shadow and theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer for some glow.

Surprisingly I’ve used a very affordable trio: NYX  Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania which I am obsessed with

My Favourite Rose Scented Products

It seems that when it comes to rose scent, there are those that love it, and those who really don’t (hate it, almost), but not than many are indifferent.

Guerlain Eau De Lingerie, new, LE, £60 for 125 ml. This is a lingerie spray withaphrodisiac properties with the notes of: iris, rose, white musk, vanilla, sandalwood and ambrette.

Plus when you give away of the things you don’t wear you feel motivated (and can justify) for the new purchases. I have been doing that, as well! And it it very refreshing. In fact, I have bought two new dresses (see one here) this month already. Although I don’t really wear dresses that often, but I felt like it was time for a change.

Holiday Gift Guide: Jo Malone Sets

In my opinion Jo Malone is an amazing gift to receive on Christmas.  I’ve got myself  their set last Christmas and I just couldn’t be happier!

Here is a sneak preview of some products that will be available this holiday season.

I am excited to see that they’ve added a touch of red to their sets because red, black and white is a gorgeous combination.

The cologne collection set is probably the best one to get for someone who is new to the brand. This year it includes:
