KIKO HYDRA PRO DAY CREAM

2 comments:

Hello dolls,

Yet again this is a truthful representation of my experience with this product.
As I mentioned on my KIKO BRIGHT LIFT MASK FIRST LOOK REVIEW , the HYDRA PRO DAY cream should be used together with it as it will hydrate your skin after the tightening effect.




Why did I chose this one?

As you all know I live in London which is not the best location in terms of keeping you skin glowing and supple due to the pollution and fast paced lifestyle.

This cream is being advertised as a moisturizing cream which leaves the skin perfectly smooth while perfecting make-up application. The great thing is that it contains ingredients which protect the skin from oxidative stress and give it a healthy glow.

How did it do on my combination skin?

I love that it smells of a blend of musk and rose. Upon application it will feel immediately like your skin is instantly moistutised and fresh. What I love about it also is that it contains sun screen which we all need as part of our routine skin care.




THE RESULTS

As soon as it was applied results were instant. It is incredibly hydrating and yes it does make your makeup look smoother when applied. This is the holy grail of day creams for me at the moment.

CREAM SMELL
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Smelles divine.

CREAM EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
It works exactly as advertised. Just an outstanding cream.

MOISTURISING EFFECT
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Skin which is instantly moisturised

QUALITY OVER PRICE
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Well worth the value of the item.

It retails at £14.30 and you can purchase it from the link below.




I USE THIS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SUBLIME YOUTH EYES CREAM BY KIKO.

This is not a sponsored post and all opinions are truthful and my own. Just because I do not like one item from a specific brand it doesn't mean other items from the same brand may not be worth the purchase.


LONG SLEEVE LACE UP DEEP V-NECK SWEATSHIRT

Hello dolls, here is the third item as promised.

Remember that I  like to order a variety of items to test, to get a clear indication of product quality.

This item is of black colour, V-neck, sweatshirt and sultry.




I love this item because you can wear it as a casual top but it won't seem too casual.

Again thankfully, I was incredibly impressed.

It is very well made. The material is very comfortable to wear and I matched it with simple black leggings. However, you may match it with other items.

The material is soft and well fitted to my figure. I liked that you could dress it down or up depending on your mood and that it's not overly casual as its so well made.
It retails at £7.99 inclusive of postage fees here in the UK.

BURGUNDY CHOCKER TIBBED BODY FROM NEED-WANT

3 comments:
Hello dolls, here is the second item as promised.

I like to order a variety of items to test to get a clear indication of product quality.

This item is of a burgundy colour, V neck, body style which has a chocker that is not detachable. I chose a body because I generally like to wear them with high waisted trousers or leggings and also because a well made body will have to close from the bottom and fit snugly not loosely. This makes the review more in depth.




Again thankfully, I was very impressed.

It is very well made. The material is very comfortable to wear and I matched it with a high waisted jean legging just to give you an idea of how you could match it. However, you may match it with other items.

The chocker part is very comfortable and well fitted ,it doesn't dangle nor is too tight.

The bottom part was perfectly fitting and not loose.




It retails at £7.99 inclusive of postage fees here in the UK.

NEED-WANT EBAY STORE REVIEW

3 comments:
Ebay is my preffered way of shopping. However, with eBay shops it can always be a hit and miss. In the sense that as much as you can get bargains you can also get a lot of things which are so different from what they adverstised for sale.

In this instance I want to praise the NEED-WANT eBay store. I tested clothing and I was very impressed.

The first item I would love to show you it's this beautiful pink V neck frill bralet which retails at £5.59.


The bralet fits beautifully, it's well made and I have included different angle shots to get an idea of the item in all it's dimensions.


Just to give you an idea of what you can match it with I have included the paperbag style trousers also in a pink.



CUSTOMER SERVICE - very responsive and quick.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

DELIVERY - prompt and eta was correct.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

QUALITY - great material and well made. 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

QUALITY OVER PRICE - well worth the money.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I strongly urge you to check their store , I have provided their link, I can honestly say it's one of the shops I follow and stick by as I haven't been disappointed.

MY FABULOUS HAIR EXPERIENCE - CDJ EZIO PARRUCCHIERI

9 comments:
CDJ EZIO PARRUCCHIERI is an Italian run hairdresser in London, they use hair friendly products to recreate whichever look you are going for with minimal damage to your hair when it comes to colour.

BEFORE


AFTER


My hair had been previously dyed very blond by someone who obviously should have made clear they were not as competent in colouring as they advertised, thing that they didn't disclose.

It was only when I got home that It was clear my hair was breaking all over. After months of home hair masks, I researched a place to go to and found CDJ EZIO PARRUCCHIERI and boy do I notice an incredible change in my hair, the colour looks natural, it’s long lasting as the technique they use doesn't show regrowth, no clear colour line is visible but rather your natural colour growing through and most importantly my hair looks and feels healthy.

Here is my visual experience vlog
https://youtu.be/gnRHkQeTkQc

They use Joelle shades colour which is a new colour and Wella professional techniques.

The atmosphere of the salon is friendly and very professional.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Recreation of the look you are going for is perfection.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Colour is natural and healthy looking
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Cut makes your grow even better and style better
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

CHARITY AND FUNDRAISING IDEAS

2 comments:
Charity is a wonderful part of life that you can embrace within your communities. It's your chance to give back to society and it's ever so fulfilling.


As a former beauty queen it's been a big part of my life because it's incredibly satisfying. I define it as food for your soul. 


Nowadays, we live in a society where outter beauty is highly credited but what is actually important in life in general is your inner beauty. 

I'm a great believer that beauty comes from the inside ,shining then to the outside. You may notice the use of the term 'SHINE' , that is because did you ever met a person who is incredibly kind and lovely? Don't you find that they appear even more attractive?


Helping others, wether animals or humans, contributes positively to our community.

Here is a list of ideas I suggest to raise funds for your cause or charity:

Use your social media to make your cause known and involve others that support your cause (i.e. Twitter, instagram, Facebook)

Cyber funding websites such as JustGiving help link likeminded people.

Organise sponsored activities (i.e. Swims, runs), sponsored gala dinners, sponsored club events, sponsored kids events or even just making your cause known in very busy public places.

Bakery items sales, jewellery making sales or car boot sales from your  own or donated items.

Source and contact people to help you out because remember that the union of multiple people make you a greater strength and asset to society.

Charity can come in multiple forms, a kind word, a small action such as carrying bags for an elderly from the supermarket, feeding stray pets or being on the streets helping the homeless by bringing them food or drinks.

Helping one another in any positive manner is key.










EVER WANTED TO BE A BEAUTY QUEEN? HERE'S HOW..

3 comments:
Some girls aspire to be role models to other girls, in order to achieve this a lot of us participate in beauty pageants.


The question is how do I prepare?

I would say start working your way from your inside to your outside.

Firstly, what is a beauty queen in character?

  • caring
  • charitable
  • team player
  • kind

This is your chance to help those in need wether it's animals, other people or charities of your choice (I have provided ideas as to how to do this on a previous post you can refer to for inspiration).

When you truly feel from your heart the need to help and care for others, it will reflect on your outter beauty.

How do you conduct yourself in public? Or even on social media?

This is also very important ,character is your way of leading by example. 

You should appear poised and well mannered regardless of the situation. There will be times that you will be tested and it's happened to me many times.

I have been at pageants and bullied by other participants for my dedication to working on myself on. Did I ever rise to it? No, because I rather lead by example and show other girls that you can behave appropriately regardless of the situation.

On social media, I have also been bullied, remember not everyone will like the way the look and not everyone likes to support other women but would rather bring them down. However, I try never to rise to it, don't get me wrong it hurts at times but I address it in a manner where I make it clear I will never accept bullying either for myself or for others.

I am an advocate against bullying.

Once you have worked on your interior, it's time to move to your exterior. 


How, you may ask yourself?

  • eat healthy and balanced meals
  • exercise 3-5 times a week (to keep toned)
  • practice that walk with the heels you plan to wear and that smile in front of a mirror daily or even record yourself to see where you could improve.
  • think of why you want to enter a pageant and why you think you aspire to win.
  • get your selection of outfits ready well before the pageant, you will want to practice your walk in your outfits.
  • go for outfits that stand out on stage (I tend to choose outfits with crystals on them they work well on stage).
  • get big sparkling accessories that complement your outfits.
  • if there's a talent round, make sure you have rehearsed and feel comfortable with what you are doing so that you have time to perfect it.

In the days prior to the event you may want to book a hair stylist and makeup artist that help you achieve your desired look, on top of that manicures ,pedicures and waxing are a must. I also get my hair freshly died 2 days prior to the event from my trusted hairdresser CDJ EZIO PARRUCCHIERI

If you are doing your hair and makeup by yourself practice all the different looks you are thinking of going for prior to the event (check what works well and what doesn't, what works well is checking also how it comes across in video and picture).

The day prior to the event I can't stress enough practice, practice and practice. Remember to be organised because on the day itself you may be quite nervous.


Always be yourself and show the beautiful person you are, it will always shine through and people will be automatically drawn to you.


If you would like more info or ideas as to how to prepare or more posts on where and how to shop, contact me directly I'll be more than happy to answer or write further blog posts. This is just a synopsis on the subject.

BADBUBBLE DIY TEA HOME DELIVERY KITS REVIEW

1 comment:
Don't let the name fool you. What is bad about it is how BADLY WONDERFUL it is.





My experience with BADBUBBLE was wonderful, starting from the ordering of the item to the delivery of it.




I’d say as a whole the are a very professional company, fresh ingredients were included in the DIY box and this home delivery is great if like me you enjoy spending time in the comfort of your home. They have a variety of tea types such as Jasmine tea and black tea. They provide different original bubble tea flavours, milky bubble tea flavours and popping Boba flavours.




Its actually very easy to make:

1. Boil the tea.
2. Let the tea cool down in fridge.
3. Boil tapioca for around 15 minutes.
4. Soak it in honey or sugar.
5. Put the tapioca in the cup.
6. Fill the cup with ice, put the syrup on top and put the tea in.
7. Mix a bit and its ready.

If like me you are more of a visual person here's a link to the video I produced on HOW TO MAKE YOUR BADBUBBLE TEA. 

https://youtu.be/LJ1o-NJX2tU

In my YouTube review link I made a peach flavoured BadBubble cold Tea which was delicious, which tasted exactly like what I get outside in a bubble tea shop but at the comfort of my home made by yours truly.

My final verdict:

PACKAGING - GREAT AND HIGH QUALITY PACKAGING.

INGREDIENTS - FRESH, HIGH END, GREAT TASTING AND VAST VARIETY.

CUSTOMER SERVICE - VERY ACCOMMODATING, AVAILABLE AND PROFESSIONAL .

ORDER EASE - VERY SIMPLE TO ORDER.

DELIVERY - QUICK AND INTACT.
