Product of The Month

Can we be real for a moment? Do you know the amount of time I spend thinking of an intro for every post? I’m a failure even as a blogger. Now we got that out of the way, let’s talk about my favorite product this month which is Oriental Princess Story of Happiness Hair Mist.


I got this hair mist as a gift from my sister in law after I mentioned to her that I was considering buying a hair mist from Boutiqaat, it’s a website for cosmetics and beauty products chosen by famous people from Middle East and let’s just say the products aren’t exactly cheap. Anyway she gave me Oriental Princess hair mist and said try this one you might like it and I did. It smells fruity with a hint of rose, it’s not too powerful and it doesn’t effect your hair in any way except obviously makes it smell amazing.

She gave me this fruity one named Forever Bright as the Oriental Princess hair mist line offers more scents, here’s the Amazon page in case you are more comfortable getting it from there even though it’s cheaper from the original website. Have you ever tried Oriental Princess products before ?



Glossybox – December 2017


I finally reactivated my subscription to Glossybox and I’m so happy to receive those boxes again, I really miss this. December box came a little late, in fact came together with January box but I’m not going to complain.


Laura Geller – Easy Illuminating Stick in Ethereal

I’ve been introduced to Laura Geller products before when I tried Birchbox I’ve been using that highlighter for awhile now so I was happy seeing this stick from this brand. It’s definitely easy to use, just glided on my cheekbones and then I blended it with a brush since I didn’t have a sponge but it worked well. It’s the right amount of shimmer that I need for my everyday look.

Beauty For Real – I-Line 24-7 Eyeliner in Platinum Blonde 

I’m not exactly comfortable trying such bold colors for my eye makeup but in the spirit of changing, I’m willing to try it out if I want to look a little bit extra for a girls night out. It’s waterproof so it won’t budge easily.


Ignore my sophisticated nail polish … design ?


Show Beauty – Riche Grooming Balm

I love me some hair products, anything that helps with my abused hair makes me happy basically. The formula of this product is really light so it doesn’t leave your hair looking greasy, also it smells nice.

Makeup Drop – Original

I never really understood those silicon thingies, I tried liking them but I couldn’t. Maybe because I’m more old fashioned, I just can’t like them. They have more pros compared to normal sponges as it doesn’t absorb the foundation and can be cleaned easily, but I wouldn’t really use it so I’m going to give it to my sister (I recommend reading Lise’s post about this).

Omorovicza – Queen of Hungary Mist

This was an instant love for me, it smells absolutely amazing. I used it instead of my usual toner before applying my makeup and then after since my makeup setting spray Urban Decay All-Nighter doesn’t exactly have the best scent. I don’t why the scent of this mist is so refreshing and calming, it’s light and I can say rose-y. I could definitely see myself getting addicted to this, I will buy it that’s for sure.

Overall, feels so good to receive this subscription box again as it’s been my favorite for quite sometime. I would say the Laura Geller highlight stick and the Queen of Hungary mist are my favorite products in this box. Have you ever used those products before, let me know what do you think.

Free Game Test: Brawlhalla

I mentioned before I want to try to a free game every month and then post what I think about it. Here’s the first post of this installment.

aquele clonezinho gostoso de SSB pra voce amar

Brawlhalla is a free to play 2D fighting game that’s very similar in play style to the legendary Super Smash Bros. It was developed and published by Blue Mammoth Games for Microsoft Windows, macOS and Playstation 4. You can pay $20 to unlock all characters current and future ones.

Let me just state that I’m very into Super Smash Bros so I didn’t take much time to learn the controls and rules of this game. The game can be played online or locally against friends which takes up to 4 players.


Just like Super Smash Bros, attack your opponents and send them off the screen. You can use light and heavy attacks and you can use weapons, and it varies from spears, swords, guns, whichever you are comfortable using so you won’t find yourself sticking with one character.

I would recommend playing this game because it’s extremely fun playing with friends or if you prefer playing online with random people. Have you ever played this game before and what are your thoughts about it.



What Do I Want From 2018

The turn of a new year usually comes with excitement, sentiment and goals for the upcoming 365 days. Whether you’ve promised to try a new diet, get back into the gym or get out of your comfort zone, the fact of the matter is that sticking to your resolutions can be difficult. It’s safe to say that old habits die hard. I should also confess that I’m bad in keeping my resolutions but what I do know that I want to be better for my own self.

ProFlowers put together a collection of motivational quotes and I chose this one specifically …


I would use this quote in both ways, for myself and to others. I think I’ve been too hard on myself during 2017 as I kept judging myself and calling myself a bad mother because I overthink and it makes me feel guilty that I don’t spend time with my son as much as I want to.

Originally I believed in “Treat people how you want to be treated” but some people aren’t nice like the girl who I work with and Bitch who stole my sister’s stuff. I want to implement the concept of being good to those nasty people that they won’t forget it. As much as this could test my patience, I want to do it.

Any new year resolution to planned out ? Let me know in the comments.


The Time a Bitch Tried to Ruin My Sister’s Wedding

Alright … I’m calm enough to do this.

Let’s pretend you are getting married, obviously you are nervous while getting your makeup and hair ready then all the sudden you realized your tiara and veil gone just like that. Of course you’d panic and it may ruin your day right ? Alright let me tell you what happened last week.

On the 4th of this month, it was my sister’s wedding day. We were all excited and happy for her and we all booked appointments for makeup and hair in the same salon (me and my sisters).


The girl who did our makeup was with us in college so we knew each other from before and she’s such a sweetheart (here’s her Instagram). Everyone was happy and we joked a lot while taking photos.


Anyway, my sister brought her tiara, veil and jewelry set in a small bag so the hairdresser would attach them while doing her hair. Now there was another bride getting ready in the salon and she had two ladies with her, her sister and a photographer who turned out to be a relative later on but we’ll get to that. Iman (the makeup artist) was feeling uncomfortable around them so that was the first red flag. By 6:30 pm we were almost done and my sister was getting her hair done, my other sisters were searching for the bag that has her veil and they couldn’t find it. We searched everywhere in that salon and we couldn’t find it. obviously my sister started panicking and wanted to cry.


My sister in law thought about the other bride who left an hour before, maybe she took it by mistake. The salon ladies got her number from the appointment date and we called her. The girl said that her photographer probably took it and she gave us her number, now this is where things got crazy.

Photographer: yeah I took it because I thought it was my relative’s stuff
Sister in law: Ok can you bring it back ? because it’s not her’s so return it to the owners.
Photographer (I mean Bitch): no it’s not my fault, I’ll just give the bag to my relatives and I don’t care.
Sister in law: It is your fault and you should return it back.

Bitch hang up the phone …



The salon workers were following all this drama and they were very angry because she’s a grade A bitch and disrespectful. We called her few more times and of course she didn’t answer, we called from different phones even and still no reply. My sister was on the verge of crying by this time because this girl is ruining her special day. We called the bride again to discuss this issue and it turns out they are from an area a bit further from us like 40 minutes drive.

We tried to make them agree to meet us at a middle point at least because we were getting late and I didn’t mind driving to get it, I just wanted my sister to be calm for her wedding. The lady kept refusing and didn’t want to deal with it, we decided to tell her that we’ll call the police because technically she took my sister’s belongings and refused to return them back. Obviously she got scared and she didn’t want to make this issue grow that big so she agreed to meet us at some park which is 20 minutes away.

So I went with one of my sisters and I remember that I drove so fast, I reached there in 8 minutes. When I parked in that meeting point, my sister said that bitch sent “If i didn’t find anyone there, I’ll throw the bag anywhere” …. I WAS LIVID.


I called her and was like “I’m here, where are you” honestly I was trying not to curse her and was holding myself not to punch her bitch-face when I see her. She came with a guy which I can assume for protection and I just pulled the bag off her hand aggressively without any word because I was too angry. I drove back to the salon again speeding because we were getting really late for the wedding.

Anyway, we reached the wedding later and my sister was happy. Everything worked out well after all that drama even though I honestly think that this bitch should’ve apologized for doing all this and also being really disrespectful.

What would you do if you were in this position ? Let me know in the comments.


Hair Myths I Tested

Recently I’ve dyed my hair back to black after being blonde for almost 3 years, I’ve done Brazilian treatment and recently did a protein treatment as well. I can say I’ve pushed my hair’s boundaries, I’ve damaged my hair too much so I would consider myself well-informed with all the hair damaging procedures. I won’t call myself a hair expert but I think I can honestly say what’s real and what’s not in the book of hair myths, so here’s my take on the truths of these myths.

  • Dyeing your hair too much will make you bald.

If I got a dollar for every time I heard this sentence, I would be rich. The truth in this myth is that, your hair will fall out but not THAT much that you would be bald.

  • Trimming your hair will make it longer.

I don’t know the logic of this myth exactly, I mean technically you are cutting your hair so obviously it’ll be shorter. Here’s my take on this one, cutting the ends of the hair to eliminate the split ends or any breakage happening will make your hair look better OBVIOUSLY … but it won’t make your hair all the sudden grow faster.

  • Fancy hair products work better for your hair

I’ve tried a massive variety of hair products, and I do mean a looooooooooooooooot. Here’s what I found out, hair products don’t help your hair as much as food does. It’s all about what you eat, this is why those hair pills are getting popular. They give you the nutrition that you can originally get from food but in more focused levels.

And always remember conditioner is your best friend whether in make your hair silky smooth or using it as a shaving cream (trust me it works perfectly).
