I am tempted to make a silly pun as an opening to today’s post. Apologies. In advance. If it irks you or seems overtly cheesy – HELL! MARCH HAS MARCHED BY!
March of 2015 involved a lot of packing, unpacking, re- packing, scheduling, planning and organizing. And travelling, of course. I have my belongings strewn across several cities, and two countries. I end up buying new things (toiletries, skincare, makeup and random stuff that we women seem to can’t live without!) wherever I go because I never seem to bother carrying stuff from one place to the next. Well, it is an annoyance to The Mister, but I relish the opportunities to try new and shiny things!
So my Habibtis, Yalla! Let’s get going..
The color looks a bit too red, but honestly it gives a pretty, natural looking flush. It does need a decent base underneath to work though..
If you can live with it’s “tea-tree” smell (fragrance?), it’s actually a really efficient, everyday cleanser. It is called a scrub, but it ain’t as “scrubby” as you think it might be, I get away with using it everyday.
Aah! I love this beauty. A fresh, spring color that brightens my almost- always- tired-looking- complexion. And the packaging is drool worthy.
Not usually a fan of sickly sweet, fruity scents. But this cherry scent is different. Really! It makes me feel all young, flirty and feminine. The Mister loves it too! On me of course…
I have neither the patience nor the time for elaborate cleansing rituals these days. So, it’s this plus the tea- tree body shop cleanser. Finito.
I am a woman who appreciates aesthetics in even the most mundane and banal, everyday items. Hence, pretty/ fancy/ classy packaging always floors me. How adorable are these lovelies??
I forgot to pack Zoe’s shampoo one time. Picked this one up as stop- gap. It didn’t quite work for her. I then realized I din’t pack my shampoo either. Plonked a generous amount of this onto my head. And surprise, surprise! My fine, dry, finicky hair loves this little white fella!
Okay. So I’m not the “gloss” kind of girl. And you wouldn’t catch me dead wearing a pearly, milky- frosty gloss. But this was a gift I received when I shopped at an EA counter. I didn’t know what to do with it- until I popped it on my lids one day. And voila! The “shiny / shimmery party eye’ is born.
It’s ain’t winter no more. But I am holding on to the last vestiges of winter and rain. It won’t be long before the melting/ roasting heat unfurls it’s fury on us. Till then, marshmallows and hot chocolate are my midnight vices. Yeah…I know it’s all icky gluten and ugly sugars. I shall live- thank you very much! (Also reminds me of Jude Law as the yummy single dad in “The Holiday” 🙂 )
