THE ULTIMATE SUMMER WISHLIST: GIFTS FOR HER #AD


I'm a through and through a summer kid. Born under Leo in the middle of August, I know what I like and work hard to get it. It may be difficult to buy for me, but in truth, I am happy with any little gift. Today I'd like to share with you the dream wishlist for my upcoming 32nd birthday. Yes, I know it's months away, but I like to plan my (and others lol) shopping ahead!

SURVIVING THE HEAT: FACIAL SPF MISTS FEAT. PIXI, BIODERMA & GARNIER


Last year marked the launch of very first facial SPF mist from Bioderma. The beauty world rejoiced, myself included.  I use SPF all over my face and body in the morning and tend to layer up facial SPF. From moisturiser to separate filters, I don't put makeup on until SPF has been applied thoroughly.  You should always re-apply every couple of hours for it to be most effective, even if you're not soaking in the pool all day. It was almost impossible to top up your SPF during the day if you wear makeup, which often resulted in exceeding the safe limits of sun exposure. The facial mist with SPF can be applied over the makeup, meaning no longer having to go without. Today, I'd like to talk about the three facial mists I've tried so far, starting with the SPF Mist pioneer from Bioderma, through the new offerings from Pixi and Garnier. They all come at the different price points, so you can truly have your pick, whatever your budget.

4 STEPS TO LASTING CURLS WITH STYLE FREEDOM


I used to think lasting curls weren't for me. I blamed everything, my hair, my skill, heat devices. Finally, I found the perfect curler and curls were not only possible but also beautiful and long lasting. Recently I have had an absolute pleasure to discover a new drugstore brand Style Freedom so I thought I'll show you the products from a different angle. Instead of a bland review, you get my step by step instruction to gorgeous and healthy curls.

SUMMER EDIT: HIGH-END SKINCARE


We don't get too many summer days here in UK but when they come, it's all about surviving the heatwave. I type this on a hot Sunday evening, eating a watermelon straight from a fridge and I wish I  could sleep outside tonight. I was thinking of post ideas all day and I thought I'll share with you my recent skincare loves, summer edition style. There aren't many this time, because the heat makes me super lazy but few suprised me from the first use.

MERUMAYA EDIT: THE 'NO BULSHIT' QUIDE TO ANTI-AGEING


There are many skincare brands trying to focus on anti-ageing. There are only a few redefining what ageing really means and how not to get overwhelmed by many bullshit slogans beauty industry sells on daily basis. Maleka and her team redefine what beauty feels and looks like and how to be fabulous at any age. Having met the team recently, I'm even more sure about the branding and the idea behind Merumaya. Today, I'd like to talk to you about all the products I've been using and what ageing gracefully means to me.
