Today, I’ll be starting a new feature on my blog called ‘Sunday Nails’, where every Sunday I’ll be posting my fave and new nail looks. I hope you guys enjoy this feature.
I love accent nails, they’re so creative and there are just so many ways that you can do them. I named this look Nude Barbie because, the base is all just a nude colour with bright pink accents – that happen to remind me of Barbie.
For the pink accents I used the L.A Girls Black Light Nail Polish Disco Brites in the shade ‘Rock n Roll’. The application of this polish was very easy and it’s one of my favourites, colour and application wise. I’ve had it for a while and with it being a black light nail polish you can expect to see something really interesting if you have a black light handy.
This polish is from L.A Colors, I can’t be sure what shade it is as this is quite an old bottle of polish to the point where some letters are no longer there, as you can see in the picture above. In person, I can tell you that this polish is more like a sheer pink that you can only see at an angle, but in pictures it comes across as nude. But, I like it either way regardless.
I hope that you guys like this nail look and I’ll talk to you guys in the next post.

This, the second post of the #2014BloggerChallenge, is all about winter skincare and taking extra special care of your skin during the winter is very important.
First off, it’s really important to start from within when it comes to skincare, so try drinking at least 8 cups of water daily – something that I’m guilty of not doing – and try not to overdo it with the processed foods.
As I live in a tropical area, winter doesn’t really hit hard for me but there’s still a bit of coldness. What I do really is, at night I put on a very thin, light layer of Vaseline on my face, and I wouldn’t have to worry about my face going dry during the night.
During the day I use a moisturising face cream, and reapply when I feel the effects of it fading. I don’t use any one product, I just get any really. For my lips, at night I put on a layer of Vaseline, but that doesn’t really last long on my lips. During the day I apply a moisturising lip balm and reapply as needed, or if I’m wearing lipstick I try to use a moisturising one.
And, for my overall skincare, I just simply use a lotion with more moisturising qualities than I’d use any other time of the year. Basically, the key to winter skincare is just to try and keep your skin hydrated and moisturised.
And remember, work from the inside out.
Hey all, and I’m really sorry for not posting much this week, I had a lot of assignments to do this week for school. So sorry for that sorry excuse of a blog post that I did before this one, I was really pressed for time and I have a product review for you guys.
I got these two Concept II products back in December as a little early Christmas present. I have to admit, before I got these I didn’t even know that Concept II Cosmetics existed, but it’s always nice to find new things right? I can definitely say that it’s been nice finding it.
The perfume is in the scent Peach Velvet which is like a citrus-y, lightly floral scent. When I first smelt it, it was more like a body mist to me because of the lightness of it. When I was doing a bit of product research on their website,, they didn’t have perfume listed as one of the products that they sold, but they do offer body mists in a variety of scents including Peach Velvet. So I’m thinking that it’s either a mistake on the box that this product is categorised as a perfume or something. But regardless of that, I really like the smell of this. The colour of the perfume isn’t in truth that dark, it’s a light peach colour, the camera angle threw it off.
The body lotion smells like floral toned baby powder. I really like the packaging for the body lotion and the perfume with the bits of gold – I’m a sucker for packaging. To be honest though, I’ve been using this lotion for a while now and it has done anything extra special for my skin, I would just classify this as just another body lotion and also I could not find this particular lotion anywhere on the Concept II Cosmetics site.
All in all, would I repurchase any of these? The body mist, sure, but as for the lotion, I’d give something else a try.
Bye everyone, and I’ll talk to you in the next post.
