Just coming on here to let you know I won’t have anything up today. I had a lipstick review planned of the new Essence lipsticks, but I didn’t get around to writing the post as I have been doing some work on my house over the past few days which has left me feeling knackered. So I decided to spend my last few days of fall break not behind a computer, but enjoying myself watching some Netflix and movies. The post I had planned for today will be up on Monday. There will be a video as usual tomorrow again.
I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the rest of your day!
Prints are some of my favorite way to add a pop to an outfit. Depending on the print you are wearing you can style up an outfit in a more classic, fun, statement way. I love how a print elevates any outfit from basic to something more. So I love wearing prints. Be it full on in a dress or more subtly in a shoe. I like playing around with combining different prints too, but mostly I love combining prints with different textures. Here is how I would style up 5 different prints.
In July & September I tried some new Essence & Catrice products in two different first impression videos. I always do these when these two affordable brands change up their makeup lines for the new season, which happens twice a year. So far I have gotten around to reviewing a few of the items I showed in those videos, but not everything will be making the review cut. That is why I figured I would film a video to give you my thoughts on them.

Since I practically used up my Bobbi Brown pressed powder, I was in for trying a new powder. I decided to go with a drugstore option this time. And it is another yellow toned powders. This banana powder by NYX is one I owned for a while, but I hadn’t gotten round to using it yet. Banana powders are usually not my favorite as they are usually too dark for my skin tone. How does this work out for me?

I know we’re halfway through October, but I haven’t forgotten about my monthly reading update. I was a bit slow to start my reads in September. After my last read of August left me quite underwhelmed I felt like I didn’t know what I wanted to start reading next and so it took me some weeks before I got back on the reading train. I ended up reading 3 books in September, which given how busy work and life has been I still deem a success.

Micellar water is one of my favorite skin cleansing products. I have tried several over the years, but my favorite is and will forever be the ones that Garnier has brought out. However, one thing still missing from Garnier’s line was a micellar water formulated for dry skin. Bioderma has one and it would only be a matter of time before Garnier would do the same.

It wasn’t too long since I last did a What’s in my Bag video, but I have already bought a new one! The reason? The one I last showed you was already falling apart. Plus I have been downsizing my daily items and thus no longer have a need for a super big bag. So when I found this leopard print Cornelia bag by Whistles in the ASOS summer sale, I knew I had to snatch it up.
