Sephora Play Unboxing: May

THE RISING STARS! 

Hey loves, May has come to an end and it has been great, however, a PLAY unboxing of May was missing but we have just enough time to get to it before we hit June.

So come with me for a fun unboxing outdoors today, some sunshine, fresh air, and stellar products, might as well grab your favorite drink after all, finals week just ended! 

Ready? Let’s head out …

First can I say I’m really feeling this whole bag here) ( in the box is this GRANDE LIPS lip plumper in clear which I misread as Gerard Cosmetics first hehe anyhow, this is a clear gloss that uses a patented hyaluronic acid-infused formula that helps visibly plump lips while also softening them over time. You can wear this alone or under your lip products, recommended twice daily.

Second in the box is this highlighter by TRESTIQUE highlight + perfect multipurpose stick in Maldives Luminescent  I did receive this in a ipsy bag as well before but tbh I didn’t really use it and this broke as I was opening it oops. A silky smooth gel highlighter stick that pairs a barely-there, lightweight texture with a champagne pink shimmer. 

Try applying it on bare skin or over a tinted moisturizer for best results.

Third in the box we have a SUNDAY RILEY ceramic slip clay cleanser this is a luxurious clay cleanser that uses potent ingredients to minimizes the appearance of pores and brighten for a clear and more balanced skin. sold! I already love this 

For better results let it sit on your face for a minute before washing it off with warm water.

20170526_121429

Forth in my hand is the CHRISTOPHE ROBIN cleansing purifying scrub with sea salt this one is for your hair of course, if you haven’t noticed there was a product from this brand in a previous play box, Sephora seems to really love this one because this one is to cleanse, purify, and rebalance a sensitive or oily scalp omg, did they read my mind? I NEED THIS! It’s a shooting sea salt scrub that will leave hair soft and refreshed

Use it as a daily shampoo or a weekly detox for oily hair and dandruff or even post coloring to soothe itchiness. AMAZING AND THANK YOU! 

20170526_121516

Fifth is this cool lip product from NUDESTIX magnetic matte lip color in Greystone a three-in-one matte lip stain, lip color, and lip liner that’s got a long-wearing, intensely pigmented formula in a bold deep shade. So this is whatever you like it to, lip liner, a little lip stain or full on lip color. 

20170526_121614

Perfume Sample this month’s pick is the MAISON MARGIELA ‘Replica’ Beach Walk transport yourself to a sandy seaside memories with this radiant scent of bergamot, coconut milk, and lemon.

Family :  Fresh 

Top Notes: Bergamot, pink pepper, lemon

Middle Notes: Ylang ylang, coconut milk, heliotrope

Base Notes: Musk, cedar wood, Benzoin 

 That brings this post to a end! Hope you enjoyed it 🙂

Get Your New Blog Up And Running (My Personal Tips & Secrets)

Hello Beautiful People!

I say why not get down to some business today, the business of blogging of course! I have read so many blog posts recently advising new bloggers and they’re all great, so much you can learn from each and every one of them, and I’m actually really proud of myself when I say that I had actually been following the most important and common advice all along 🙂 whatever it was that I was doing was floating my boat and it came as a surprise when one lovely blogger requested that I share my secrets and tips on how to build and grow a new blog. I’ll be honest and tell you that deep down it feels great 🙂 so here it is; just some real, personal and honest advice or call it ‘secrets’ if you will.

5 Piece of Personal Advice To New Bloggers or ( Even Bloggers In General) 

  1. Just Do It  

    Whether you are still in the process of deciding whether or not you should start a blog or already running one, I would tell you to “just do it” let your ideas flow, if it hit you that you should start a blog, than go ahead and do it right away before that idea gets completely ignored. Have an idea for your next post, hit that ‘write’ button and write down it’s title at least so it’s there to remind you. Let this be something that free’s your mind, something that makes you just as happy even a year later.

  2. Also, Don’t Over Do It 

    Before you get confused and click away, let me tell you what I mean here, this ties perfectly with the first piece of advice, while you want to follow your impulses and just create that post. What you don’t want to do is; force yourself to write and publish content because you feel there is some pressure to do so. This will ‘not’ always bring traffic to your blog, you can start a blog and publish 50 posts back to back but see that you’re not reaching as much views or likes or communication in general, this leads us to my next piece of advice.

  3. Communicate 

    Can’t stress this enough, communicate, communicate, it can be hard especially if you burden yourself with too many posts, this is why you should try to maintain a good balance between creating content and communicating with your readers, which includes actually reading their content, giving feedback, and liking their posts also going and discovering new blogs and following them. This is a give and take and I know, trust me I know, it’s time consuming but it’s crucial. I believe this is the only thing that has helped me reach the point that I am at today, because let’s be real, my content is ‘my’ content, just me rambling on and on about things and even if it was top notch I wouldn’t be going any where with it until people actually came and saw it and liked it and shared it. So I hope you get the point here, go out and discover blogs and forget about the stat’s for now. Once you start viewing more and more blogs, you’ll start to love it at least I love it, it’s so much fun.

  4. Quality, Appearance, Photos And More 

    What makes you click on a blog post or even a blog it self, think about how much of an influence appearance has. You’re writing may be on point and filled with some ideas worth reading but truth is, it’s not going to speak to readers, it’s not going to make them click on it, and therefore, they’ll never know what they missed out on so do yourself a favor and your readers by making your posts look attractive, use visuals, use nice big fonts, photo’s and colors. You do not need to go out and purchase an expensive camera in order to get amazing photo’s for your blog or at least not yet, use your phone and good editing apps, play around to see what works best for you but the goal here is to invest time in your photos and the overall appearance of your blog and every post. Another reason you should check out other blogs, you’ll be inspired everyday for your own blog.

  5. Assess Yourself  

    After all every person is different and therefore every blog is unique, look to other for inspiration not competition, and It would be right to say that the blogging community is super positive and loving anyways. All you have to do is find your place and get comfortable, and no one is better at being ‘you’ only you can do that, so explore every side, every style and you’ll know when you’ve found exactly what speaks to you then from there on just let that speak to your audience, a little love and some passion is all you need to succeed here.

I am by no means an expert at this, just a little passion to be more creative each day, I’m still learning but there you have it, some advice just for you. Hope it’s not too much to read and that it actually benefits you in some way, if it does be sure to come back and share your story, and feel free to leave a tip or two yourself all you lovely readers because sharing is caring.

heart_nominateThere Are A Few Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

Let Go…

How My Blog Started: 

Hmm… I’ve actually been wanting to do something like this 🙂 My blog started one summer afternoon or to backtrack a little it actually started right when I was finishing up my second semester at school. I was tired and had just submitted my some work for a class that I went on to create or sign up for a website at WordPress, I had thought of it during the day while I was sitting in class and well… kind of bored, so I followed through later when I got home and signed up. Not to mention, with little consideration for my site address and that it would be something more permeant and harder to change later on, that’s how random it was. Now, back to the nice summer afternoon, that was the day, I woke up from sleeping all I could and upon waking up I just rushed to publish my first, very first  post here and I still remember the first person to comment and then follow, and oh! those notifications hitting my phone, I was thrilled 🙂 and from there on it continued and will hopefully continue on and on, the progress is right here. My blog started randomly but it had a purpose and a reason which may or may not have been very apparent, my mission was to spread positivity and beauty.

Two Pieces Of Advice For New Bloggers:

  1. Let this be something you enjoy and cherish do not, do not go crazy over how many views or likes a day you’re hitting, yes, that makes you happy and makes want to put in more work, which is great and that’s how it should stay. Your number one priority should be to make your self happy with the content of your blog because when you love what you put out there so will your readers.
  2. Be YOU, Be REAL yes, original is what your aim should be, trust me when I say you do not need to change the way you speak to publish content on your blog, write as you speak, write as you feel, and write as though you were talking to a friend in a real life, that is whats going to attract and connect readers to your blog.

Now to the best part… The Nominations:

  1. The Beauti-Bag
