Since I start joining Youtube last year, I have been purchasing and experimenting more now with make-up, skin care, food and clothing than ever before. Because of my curiosity I have been trying out a few products that I wouldn’t normally buy 😄 it’s either expensive or it’s not a worth of try. But! hey!! I’m not a compulsive buyer ha! I know my limitations whenever I buy something 😉 I usually search first all the reviews, pro’s and cons online before I purchasing it. I really make sure that I really need it before I buy it! Anyhow high way! Lets go back into the business!!😉
Recently, I noticed that my lips gets dry so fast using my matte H&M lipstick 💋 even if I applied lip balm on it still makes my lips dry! I love my matte lipstick (but the issue of drying is irritating) so I said to myself that I need to buy lip primer for me to enjoy my matte lipstick!! (searching for best lip primer in town Mac prep+lip primer to the rescue)
The box full of happiness hehe 😍
For the past few weeks , I often find myself browsing on kicks.se because I’m planning to buy lip primer from Mac and I ended up buying also one Mac Velvet teddy lipstick too hahaha! I didn’t go overboard but I managed to treat myself a little (guys I love lipstick so much so bear with me😉 ) I’m so happy that I bought it too!
To those of you who don’t know what Kicks is – It is popular beauty store here in Sweden where they offer popular drugstore brands as well as lot of high-end make-up brands. They sell expensive perfume too and skin care products! Name it and they have it LoL.
This is what I purchased Mac prep+lip primer & velvet teddy matte lipstick
However, the Mac prep+lip primer is a little bit expensive too and it cost 180 sek around (1115 Php), just be careful when twisting it because it’s so delicate that you can easily ruin it (based on my experience). The texture kind of feels like you are putting on a thick lip balm on your lips but its not greasy at all. Overall it smooths out my lips and the smell is not so strong which I really really like!
August 📝!! our last month of SUMMER here in SE!! yep it’s real!!! Swedish fall start from September to October so it only means that dark season rather COLD season will come pretty soon ❄ . In this time of the year also we are really prone to have a dry skin from head to toe especially on our lips 💋 which I really don’t like at all.
Luckily, we can take care of our lips now with some homemade lip scrub 😉 so why buy expensive lip scrub if you can make it at home right? just explore your kitchen.
Omg! 4 days to go and it’s my BIG day!! 🙂 I’m a bit nervous and stress. Decorating and finding a nice idea that I can added up on my big day is really a mind-boggling!. I keep on searching and searching over the net on how can I make my own wedding giveaways… 🙂 and I just want to share you guys… what I did!! 🙂
I called it DIY (Do It Yourself) simple and not so expensive wedding favors, take note!! it’s personalized favors that I did all by myself hahaha…The cookie I use here is homemade. I baked it and yeah I’m proud of it and it turned out good and tasty 🙂
yeah it’s me Baking! 🙂
Anyway, doing this kind of project allow us to create our own personalized favors and touches that can be applied in any way we can imagine specially for our special day, for shower, a party or whenever. All you need are some basic items and a LITTLE CREATIVITY. 🙂
What you need are some basic item such as:
🐷 Small colored paper bags (If you know how to make it, that’s good )
🐷 Glue 🐷 Decorative tape (they are very cute) Check this out for your idea about the tape.
🐷 Small Tag
🐷 Make your own wedding message and print it (download template here) since my wedding motif is lavender color, I choose violet (Lila) for my message template.
🐷 Lastly is your goodies you want to put inside the bag (cookies,brownies,chocolates .. etc) I choose the Pepparkakor cookies (Swedish Ginger Cookies)
Start how to make giveaways 🙂
🐷 Print out your desired wedding message and cut it according to what size you want.
🐷 Paste the printed message on the small paper bag (see picture below)
🐷 Put what goodies you want ( I choose Cookie and I baked it)
🐷 Seal the paper bag with your decorative tape (like what I did)
🐷 Last, attached the tag with your name on it 🙂
Paste the printed message on the small paper bag (see picture below)
H&M Matte lip colour in the shade of Lennox Lounge
How sad is it when you accidentally leaves your favorite lipstick 💄 inside the car and discover that it was melted due to the extreme heat. Did you also experience that? Me too!! twice 😂 So what else I can do is to buy a new one 😊
Luckily! I was able to drop by to a local H&M store here in my place to look around and then I saw that they had a little cosmetic stand so I went over to look for new nice shade of lipstick which I badly need one! After a couple of minutes swatching all the shades they have I managed to find a colour that I couldn’t resist taking home and for only 99.9 SEK Swedish krona I was able to get this H&M Matte lip colour in the shade of Lennox Lounge. (picture below)
I really love the packaging of the lipstick and if you don’t know I also love eveything that comes in gold!😉
I use it a few times now and I’m loving the shade!
I would recommend you purchasing this lipstick. The color is nice and fabulous. It is thick in consistency and have a smooth texture, highly pigmented so you only have to apply a bit. I love red shade on my lipstick and i can say its stunning!
