SLEEK MAKEUP MULBERRY 788 LOOK AND...100TH POST!

London, UK

First of all happy National Lipstick Day, girls! 
To celebrate this fantastic day I wanted to experiment with another beautiful shade from Sleek Makeup line.
If you remember my last review on a Sleek lipstick shade -Mystic 783- you already know that I looove Sleek Makeup. 
This time I choose to dare. I wanted a dramatic look and I was really pleased to find the shade Mulberry 788
When I want to feel sophisticated and vampy, I tend to use this colour.
The only down side of this lipstick is that is sheen and comes off pretty easily. 
The good news is that if you apply a transparent powder on top of it, you're going to have dark long lasting matte lippie. 
PROBLEM SOLVED!!

So what do you think? Have you ever used a Sleek Makeup product? 

Today I also wanted to celebrate my 100th post published on this very blog!
It seems yesterday when I decided to share with the entire blogosphere my personal thoughts about natural hair, fashion, and makeup. I don't regret any single second spent on nurturing my baby blog.
And I also want to thank all the beautiful people out there who are constantly rooting for me and make my dreams come true.  





HAPPY


TH POST TO ME!!

Have a wonderful day, peeps!

GARDEN PARADISE

London, UK



Hey peeps!
Finally, I can share with you the rest of the shooting that I partially showed you here
I had the beautiful chance to collaborate with a young and talented photographer, Nomsa. I never had the pleasure to work with somebody who shares my exact view on how to work and it was kind of scary to discover to agree on so many visions. She just started a photography site that you can easily check out clicking here. Make sure to show her some love!

Have a wicked week!

SLEEK MAKEUP MYSTIC 783 LIPSTICK

London, UK








I'm currently obsessed with SLEEK MAKEUP. That's it! I said it out loud!
I can't help it! 
Everything from this makeup line looks so good on my complexion.
  For me, this Mystic matte shade is playful, summery, and irreverent. 
I used it a couple of times already and I'm still so impressed by it. 

It has a matte finish (which I personally love), I can eat/drink whatever I want without any touch ups, really long lasting and it doesn't dry out my lips. 

Too good to be true, honestly!

I had so many compliments last time that I wore this shade that I felt like a model! 
I would definitely recommend this makeup line to all the dark women out there ready to try out something new and fun!

What do you think? Have you ever used a Sleek Makeup product? 
Have a wonderful day, people!

CONTACT LENSES: MY EXPERIENCE WITH VISION DIRECT

London, UK


Almost two months ago I decided to start volleyball again. When I was younger and still living in Italy, volleyball was my true passion, but for a series of reasons, I had to quit. Since I moved here to the UK and started working, I was looking for something to do in my spare time so OBVIOUSLY, I decided to start volleyball again.
When I used to play volleyball years ago, I wore my prescription glasses sometimes, and luckily I never had any sort of problem but I knew that it wasn't safe at all. This time I wanted to be wiser and more careful so I opted to try out contact lenses. 
Why not?

I purchased my lenses via Vision Direct. The delivery was really quick and they even included a small Haribo pack within my parcel. Yes, you read correctly: Haribo sweets for free! I will DEFINITELY keep purchasing my lenses from them! lolI decided to buy the monthly contact lenses Biomedics 55 Evolution because of the low price and easy daily care. Now the only thing that I needed was a solution to clean/sterilize my lenses. I opted for Opti-Free Replenish Contact Lenses Solution on Amazon, a real bargain!

My first experience trying to actually wear the contact lenses weren't that bad if I have to be honest! It took me 25ish minutes for both eyes and I was really pleased with the results!
Finally, I didn't need to squint to read any type of writing and my eye makeup was actually noticed for once! The only downside was that I managed to lose one of the lenses without even realizing it. lolAll in all my experience with contact lenses is absolutely positive! Never experienced infections, dry eyes nor irritation *touch wood*. Now that I'm more experienced, I'm even using them in my spare time. I really don't know why I didn't try them earlier! *shaking my head*

What about you? Have you ever worn contact lenses? If yes, do you have a funny story about it? Let me know guys! I'm curious!!!
