A New Makeup Brand (LiSi)

I discovered a new makeup brand today you guys!


I forgot how exactly I came across it but I was browsing the web and – poof – there it was. The brand is called LiSi Cosmetics and they sell affordable high end makeup products on their site.


I don’t know why but whenever I’m checking out a makeup brand I always check their foundation and brushes first. Their brushes from what I saw seem really great and the price range for them is very reachable to you budget beauties out there. Almost half of the brushes at LiSi are duos and so again there’s a really great price for them. The only downfall I can see online is that there are no brush sets available.

Foundation wise, they offer a wide colour range for every ethnicity which I really like. They liquid, powder and cream-to-powder foundations available. The liquid foundation is suitable for every skin type, it’s oil and wax free which would allow for breathable coverage. There cream-to-powder foundation claims to be smooth and never cakey and is suitable for all skin types. The pressed powder is only recommended for normal to oily skin types.

LiSi has a good range of lip liners, glosses and sticks and nail lacquers as well. They have brow pencils, gels and powder duos and pretty much any makeup product available on their site except lip stains, BB and CC creams.

I’m really eager to try out some of there products to give you guys a real view of the brand and their products and not just what the brand says about themselves, I mean if there mascara was crap they wouldn’t tell you that now would they? But I just wanted to share my discovery with you guys, maybe you’d never heard of them and bow you want to check out their products too?

LiSi has its store in Greenwich Village, New York.

Have you used LiSi products before?

What’s your view of the brand?

I’ll talk to you in the next post. Bye!



Natalie Portman In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Paris Premiere

“Calm self-confidence is as far from conceit as the desire to earn a decent living is remote from greed.”
– Channing Pollock


Natalie Portman took this Christian Dior Spring Couture dress straight from the runway to the red carpet.

Yesterday evening she stepped out for the ‘Thor: The Dark World’, world premiere in London in another Christian Dior dress. She stepped out again this evening to promote promote the movie at the Le Grand Rex for the Paris premiere.

Natalie was stunning in a Christian Dior Spring 2013 v-neck nude frock that features a black overlay accented with yellow-and-orange blossom sequin appliqués.

It’s no secret that Natalie Portman is a lover of Dior gowns.

I liked that she added a black belt with the outfit, it really adds emphasis to her waist! She also styled the dress with gold strappy Charlotte Olympia ‘Gilda’ leather-free sandals, barely there make-up, a black timepiece and sleek tresses.

What do you think about this look?

Love it? Hate it?



Let’s Have A Chat!


Sunday. Sunday. Sunday.

Does anybody else dread the day before work starts again, it’s like Saturday is the only real weekend day.

I’m actually procrastinating right now by writing this post. I have a bit of home work and it’s already 8pm.

I’m still trying to get the hang of blogging, being more personal with you guys. I’ve been meaning to put up a ‘This is Me’ post, but my camera’s charger has been missing for ages and I just managed to find it today, I’d still need a photographer though. But, don’t worry, I’ll get that to you guys soon.

I just wanted to blab meaninglessly for awhile, so, I’ll talk to you in the post. Thank you guys for supporting my blog!

Love you guys lots

October: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.

Some come from ahead and some from behind.

But I’ve bought a big bat. I’m all ready you see.

Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

– Dr. Seuss

Breast Cancer Fashion:

These are some fashion-forward breast cancer inspired ensembles. The first image is from Chicago’s, ‘Fashion’s Fight Against Breast Cancer’, event.


In honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I’ve pulled together a few quotes to inspire and give hope to those battling the disease.


“People go through challenging moments of losing people and of having their life threatened from illness and real grief. But they get through it. And that’s the testament to the human spirit and it’s — we are fragile, but we also are divine”.


“I’m here today because I refused to be unhappy. I took a chance”.


“Get up every day, love God, and do your best. He will do the rest!”


“Breast cancer changes you, and the change can be beautiful.”

– Jane Cook, Breast Cancer Survivor


“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I’ll try again tomorrow.”

-Mary Anne Radmacher


“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt


“When life kicks you, let it kick you forward.”

– Kay Yow


“Yesterday I dared to struggle. Today I dear to win.”

– Bernadette Devlin


“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

– Helen Keller


“Having had cancer, one important thing to know is you’re still the same person at the end. You’re stripped down to near zero. But most people come out the other end feeling more like themselves than ever.”

– Kylie Minogue


“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”

– Winston Churchill


Breast cancer can happen to anyone, man or woman, and donating to cancer research groups can help to find a cure.

You can donate and find more information about breast cancer at Find A Cure.

Bye you guys
