Since I started 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!!
My First Kicks purchase of the year!
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 📝 is our last month of SUMMER here in Sweden. Yep it is 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.
While it is easy to notice dry skin on our body like our legs and arms and even our scalp, we often forget that our lips are skin too. Our lips need to exfoliate, treated and moisturize too because when cold and dry weather is ON, our lips are completely dry and easily become chapped and rough.
Your homemade lip scrub can be flavored to your own specifications or whatever fruits you have at home. Since I have Kiwi at home I decided to use it as a flavor of my lip scrub 😉. Also, I search online that Kiwi is a great natural exfoliant.
Lets Start Making KIWI Lip Scrub:
You only need three ingredients to make your own homemade lip scrub
🌻 Sugar (normal sugar)
🌻 Coconut oil (Kung Markatta Kokosolja Virgin)
🌻 Kiwi (you can use half of it or it depends if you only want to make small amount of lip scrub)
Just mix them all together until well combined (mashed your kiwi, coconut oil and sugar)
Omg! four 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 wanted to share to 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 🙂
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.
Yves Rocher is a well known French cosmetic brand and they have wide range of different skin care product which I have been trying to use for the past month now 😊. My order from them arrived a few days ago and I am really excited to show you guys what I’ve got!
I am extremely pleased with my order and as you all know Yves Rocher give lots of freebies if you purchase to them. I only purchase five items that cost only around 350kr/free shipping. Shampoo,hair oil,green tea shower gel,nail polish and the lip gloss.
Here is everything that I got 😊!
I got free Ultra Volume Sexy pulp Mascara, one Marron Glace lipstick,scarf, a bag with phone case and a scarf 😊
I choose the reparation / nutri-repair shampoo because my hair is so so damage to the highest level, full of split-ends and brittle. This shampoo says it silicon free which is good! I don’t necessarily have dandruff however my scalp is super dry and my hair tend to get more brittle and damage because I use lukewarm water when showering (what do u to expect! I lived in cold place Sweden) LOL. I also get the green tea Shower gel, I dunno! i just get it! 😉 I love 💜 the smell of green tea 🙂
For me sunset is a natural beauty of nature. Hindi na kailangan pang i-Photoshop or i-ADOBe 😉 because it just turned out that way and it will always be that way. It always feels great watching it, parang lagi mong sasabihin na yes! tapos nanaman ang isang araw and may bukas ulit. Watching sunset gives romantic feelings pa diba? 😊 especially when two of you are watching it together pa at sa beach pa ayyie! (kilig mode) well, hopeless romatic kasi ako! pagbigyan! Lol 😂
We always see it everyday, but how often do we really take time to see it….
Me: always 😊
Switching cultures and country will definitely makes you become more observer ;). You will notice lot of things that really stands out from the rest.Its also help you to learn and absorb new knowledge from your own mistakes 😊 so I just want to share you guys why it’s so nice to live in Sweden 😊
So for now, I come up with this “Things you will surely love in Sweden” 😊. If you feel that I forgot something! feel free to add lol 🙂
Drinking water straight from the faucet is a big yes! Tap water is clean, fresh and safe so no worries guys!
You will definitely never get sick of Swedish meatballs, because meatballs is love 💜💜 💜
(meatballs with macaroni and yogurt on the go Lol).
You also put tomato sauce(as in Heinz tomato sauce on your macaroni and meatballs) amazing hehehe but yummy
