The Perfect Pick-Me-Up Shower Product



  If you read my Crappy Days post you probably know that I've been ill with jaundice and therefore haven't left my home in weeks. I miss putting some makeup on, getting all dressed up and going out for the day. I literally put on some red lipstick when I was going to the doctor's today, but then took it off in the last minute because I was sure he'd think I'm crazy. But anyway, the one thing that has been my go-to pamper product has been this Original Source shower gel. It has provided me with a great deal of happiness, I can tell you that.

#CosmopolitanChic: Outfit Pieces That Multi-Task




 Vegas.com asked me to create a few different outfits that would be perfect for a day at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, one of the premier hotel properties in, you guessed it, Las Vegas, as part of their #CosmopolitanChic blog challenge. Now, I've never actually been to Vegas, but I thought it would be fun to put together a few outfits that are appropriate for a vacation when you want to be super glamourous without having to pack up your entire wardrobe.

Crap Health, Hospital Visits and Just Having A Bad Time




So here you go. Here's a life update for those of you who still lurk around my rather lonely blog. But it's been lonely for a reason and here's why. If you follow me on twitter you probably already know that I've been ill with jaundice and typhoid and whatnot. But this isn't the first time I've been ill in the past couple of months. Instead, it almost feels like this was the cherry on top of the cake.

On My Nails: Maybelline Color Show in Constant Candy


 I think that my taste in nail polish has changed quite a bit in the recent past. I am really loving nudes and almost nudes, subtle pastels, but also the odd dark burgundy for my nails. But one of my all time favourite nail colours to sport is a pale, pale pink. It is white but not white, neutral but not nude, feminine without being too out-there and just over all very pretty. And here the nail polish I've been sporting for most of September.

Makeup Cleanup: Products I Threw Out


 I love cleaning up and organising. I really do. But there are some parts of my room I like to ignore. My makeup drawers, for example. There's just too much stuff that requires (immediate) attention and throwing out, that I like to ignore it altogether. But recently I decided to not think about it too much and just go for it. Clean that shiz up. So I pulled out all my makeup and had a good look at it. And here are some of the gross, expired, dried up or just plain unflattering gems I pulled out.

The Chilled-Out Product: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain


 I believe that makeup is meant to be played with. There aren't rules here. If a product doesn't work for me a certain way, I try using it for something else. For example, the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous was a very exciting purchase for me because I had heard so many good things about this product. However, I was disappointed when I tried it on because it just wasn't pigmented enough for me and looked odd and glossy on my lips. Not my best look. But then I came up with an alternate use for it. Now I love it.

One Dress, Two Ways: Easy Summer Style

One Dress, Two Ways


 I had an obsession with buying dressy dresses. Expensive, dressy dresses. Until one day I realized that I have so many of them and barely enough places to wear them to. If you have friends like mine, you'd know how the only places you go out to are eating places that don't require you to throw on those heels and that snazzy dress. Putting on some red lipstick is as fancy as it gets. 
 So now, I like to buy clothes that can easily be dressed up or dressed down.
