RISE BEYONCE PARFUM Review

Compliments of the season!

How was Christmas? What did you get? What were you upto? How much did you eat? Do you want a rundown of everything I got? Let me know everything in the comments section.

I just got the RISE BEYONCE Perfume from my boss for Christmas and I’m in love with it. Also the packaging is completely bare so I thought it would only be right to write a review. Of course there are tons of other reviews out there, but read mine ok! ;P

First off the packaging is on fleek! Love the gold and black box with the shimmer. Very sophisticated and Beyonce esc. The bottle is even more beautiful. Looks like something Beyonce herself would be caught spritzing.

As for the scent, when you first spray it, it’s quite harsh. Like all the notes rush to your senses all at once and you can’t figure out what it actually smells like. Lol! DW it settles down in a few seconds and it’s quite a fruity scent. I was honestly surprised, didn’t expect it to be fruity so I thought…

Something is probably wrong with my senses. I’m not cut out for reviewing perfumes.

So I Googled it and this is what I found,

The RISE BEYONCE PARFUM is a blend of apricot, Italian bergamot, iced basil Sorbet, Orchid, Freesia, Sambac Jasmine, autumn woods, cashmere, musk and vetiver notes.

Wohooo! I can be a perfume reviwer after all! A ton of people were saying the Iced Basil Sorbet and Orchid stood out most but I’m honestly glad it’s the Apricot for me.

After all, the same perfume does smell different on each person!

Either way, have a great New Year!

The Body Shop vs L’Oreal clay mask

Welcome back beauties β™₯️

I’ve probably said this a million times before but this time I’m going to be regular with my posts. They may not have the best pictures or be the most aesthetically pleasing to look at. But they will be awesome!

Lately I’ve been into a lot of masks. Face masks. And I think the clay ones suit my skin type best. I have combination skin which if you don’t know what that is… It’s a combination of oily and dry skin. My T zone is really oily while the rest of my face is, well … Not. Lol!

Mean Girls reference: My pores are huge! Which means dust, dirt, everything settles on my face. So a good cleansing clay mask is just what I need on a weekly basis.

The Tea Tree Clay Mask

🌿β™₯️🌿

I think it’s working wonders because everytime I smother it on it gives me a tingling sensation in my pores.

I can almost feel it extracting the impurities. And if you’ve tried toothpaste on your skin at some point in your life you’ll know the feeling instantly. It’s like that.

Dries up in about 15-20 minutes but that also depends on how much you apply. Rinse it off with luke warm water I suggest and go to sleep. Maybe keep the pot in the fridge to extend it’s duration.

L’Oreal Clay Mask

😍😍😍

This one is up there with my favourites honestly only because it has charcoal in it. And I mean… You all know the craze behind that!

It does give the the tingling sensation in my skin as well and I do feel refreshed after. However, I have literally used this pot twice and when I reached for it the third time it wasn’t the same.

🀷. The consistency was off. Which means it didn’t have the same effect on my skin and I mean I was pretty upset.

Maybe it was because I didn’t refrigerate it, so it is chilling there now. But I mean this little thing ain’t cheap so for two applications. πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”

Let me know if you guys have tried any of these. Which do you like better and why. And if you have any amazing masks you’d like me to try!

DIY Halloween Costume Ideas!

Boo! ☠

It’s that time of year again and I couldn’t be happier! That time where in we train ourselves to think it’s cold enough for long sleeves, turtle necks and fuzzy socks but in reality we have to stick to shorts and tees. That time where we finally know what to do with the maple leave garlands that aunty bought from Canada! And that time when we wait for Starbucks to bring out the Pumpkin Spice Latte because nothing else about Mumbai is anywhere near FALL or Halloween!

I think it’s high time we change what’s the norm and do what we want! What I want is Trick-or-Treating all over , everywhere! But in reality I’m for one TOO OLD and secondly this idea is a crime just waiting to happen! But we can still have dress up parties with friends, family, your dog, your cat, yourself! Who cares? As long as your Instagram is On Fleek πŸ‘». Right???

So here are a couple of outfit ideas that I’ve come up with. Let me know which one is your favourite in the comment section! Nothing too OTT. Their both subtle enough, yet super cool! If I may say so myself.

 1. Maleficent!

 The only major parts of the outfit were the horns and her staff.

For the horns all you need to do is:

  • Mould the horn shape with aluminium foil. Make sure both your horns look about the same shape and size. 
  • Cover them with tissue paper dipped in water and glue (fevicol). Aka. Paper mashe around both horns. 
  • Paint them in a dark dirty, almost black brown colour.
  • Lastly, attach them to either a headband or some barrettes with black electrical tape. 

For her staff, all you need to do is:

  • Paint a wooden dowel black.
  • Stick on a Christmas bauble to the tip of it with some hot glue. I went for a golden bauble.
  • Partially cover the bauble with some leaves painted black. 
  • For added detail, you can replicate vines with a hot glue gun.

 I know this may seem a bit time consuming, but if you have the time. It’s a great costume idea! And with everyone being Harley Quinn this year, you’ll definitely stand out! πŸ˜‰ 

Pair the props with a black dress and you’re good to go! 

                             _________________________________________________________________

2. A Prisoner 

 This is a total last minute costume idea. You can practically throw this together on the 31st itself!

All you need is a black and white striped tee and some black pants. If you have black and white striped pants too, then all the better.  But I didn’t. 

For the props:

  1. A chef hat
  2. A laundry bag (optional)
  3. A black mask (optional)

All you need to do to the chef hat is paint stripes on it. My cap was black, so I painted white stripes.

To the laundry bag, draw/ paint on a dollar sign and carry it around. So it looks as though you’ve robbed a bank. 

If you have a black eye mask, it would be perfect. I didn’t have one, so I decided to go down the bruised route. With some black and blue eyeshadow , I bruised up my under eye area. 
And tada! Those were my two last minute costume ideas!

Hope you like them. 

And have a SPOOKtacular Halloween πŸ‘»πŸ’€β˜ πŸŽƒ

Xoxo ❣

Is he ‘THE ONE’???

Hey guys πŸ’™

Welcome back or Welcome. It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here and I’m so sorry about that. From now on I’m going to try and be more regular.

How have you guys been? Enjoying the rains so far or hiding away in the comfort of your homes? I think the former – long walks no matter what the weather – trying to catch em all πŸ˜†. Anyway… Let’s just get into what we’re really here for!

Disclaimer: I am no expert of any sort on relationships . These are just tips of advice that I’ve learnt over the years and and would like to share them with you guys. I do hope you find this useful and enjoy reading.

He’ll ALWAYS make time for you. Now every guy is different- that’s a given. But someone who truly loves you will try and be with you no matter how tough it may be. AndrΓ© and I have been together for over four years now and I can literally count on my fingers the number of days we haven’t met each other at all since dating. And yes it’s hard sometimes, no we don’t have all the time in the world to do nothing except be together and yes AndrΓ© works! But we still meet everyday. I’m not saying you have to dump your boyfriend now because he doesn’t meet you daily! What I mean is he should be excited to make plans with you , make you a priority and take even a little while out of his days to have some couple time.

He’ll think of YOU first. I’m pretty sure if you’re thinking about him before yourself, somebody needs to be doing the same for you. It has got to be two sided in every way. What I mean by think of you first is for example, When you’ll go out – does he make sure he’s taking you somewhere safe, will you be comfortable with the crowd there, etc etc. I know these are decisions you can make on your own, but it means a lot to know he really does care.

Finds any excuse to touch you. This is more of a pre dating one. But very true indeed. I remember the days AndrΓ© and I would meet way before dating… Pretty sure we both liked each other but neither of us had said it yet. Everytime we met he would find or make up an excuse to hit my arms or catch my hands or make me mad so I would end up hitting him etc. Some childish ways just never change and I for one never want them to.

TALK TALK TALK. Spend hours on the phone, in person, texting or whatever it is. Just talk, share and connect with each other. Make sure you’ll are a compatible pair. Never hold anything back! It’s so important to be on the same page as your partner when it comes to your beliefs, values etc. It may not seem like a very big issue in the beginning, but it will eat you up in the long run.

He will always be Supportive of you. You know he’s a great catch when you see him doing everything he can to make you happy. When I say supportive (Yes like a bra) I mean he’s there for you ANYTIME ANYWHERE. He’ll be your personal photographer if suddenly one day you decide to be a blogger. He’ll change any mannerisms that upset you about himself. He’ll be at your place at sharp 9:00am on the only holiday he gets in the week to help you clean your house for your birthday party. The list goes on, as it should. Because that is love, sacrifice and compromise.

Thanks for everything Andre, you have taught me what it is to love. And girls! If you know a guy who treats you like the princess you deserve to be treated like – you keep him close! I’ll stop here for now before this starts to get boring AF! I hope you girls enjoyed reading this and if you’re a guy – TAKE NOTES! 

Xoxo πŸ’—
