Wireless Car Charger Mount (DesertWest) Review

dav

If we are being honest, being a parent makes your multi-tasking skill level up instantly. You could be doing simultaneous things at the same time while keeping your attention on the children, I could honestly say that I learned I could be using one hand for various things while holding the baby with the second hand. It gets hectic though while you are driving and having two children, and I tend to avoid using my phone but sometimes I have to use the Map or GPS apps to know where I’m going and it’s pretty dangerous to hold your phone while driving in general. I was considering getting a phone mount that could hold my phone while driving instead of getting it from my side and keeping my eyes off the road.

The mount itself is pretty sturdy and held my phone firmly, it didn’t budge till I pressed a button from the back to release the side. The mount can be rotated and moved from side to side using a ball jointed part which I appreciate because I can switch from horizontal to vertical view.

The mount held on the air vents and it has two gears as shown in the picture to choose from (I. 2mm and II. 1mm) So you could choose how tight it’ll hold the air vents.

My phone doesn’t support wireless charging so I had to use my sister’s iPhone X to test it out, be sure to check if your phone supports wireless charging before ordering the product. The mount has an opening to plug the USB wire, can be used if your car has a USB opening or you can plug it to a power bank. Charging-wise, I could consider it fast enough definitely not slow. My only problem with this product is the wires, I think it looks messy but it might be just me not knowing how to manage it.

Considering my phone doesn’t support wireless charging, I think the mount alone is useful for me. I think it’s a great charger and very useful, sadly I wouldn’t use the “charger” side of it.

Sephora Mini Haul

IMG_20180317_230833

Last week I was in UAE finishing my Eid outfits since I’ll be larger by the time ramadhan ends. When I was done, I had the time to check out Sephora since we don’t really have the store in my country. I honestly wanted to understand the hype behind Fenty Beauty products so I decided to get couple of items from that brand to test them out.

Fenty Beauty – KILLAWATT Freestyle Highlighter (Trophy Wife)

IMG_20180317_231058

I wouldn’t go for such a bright metallic golden color but I’ve seen so many people I follow praising it, I thought of trying it out. I don’t know if I can use it as a normal highlighter unless I keep it light but I could use it as an eyeshadow because it has a really pretty shimmer.

Fenty Beauty – MATTEMOISELLE Plush Matte Lipstick (S1ngle)

IMG_20180317_231223

Lipsticks were the new products in this brand and I was more interested in trying them out. I chose this nude with slight pink shade for an everyday look, it looks too natural and the formula is very creamy and didn’t dry out my lips. It’s also long lasting so consider me a fan, I’m in love with it.

Yves Saint Laurent – Les Sahariennes Bronzer (5 Ambre)

IMG_20180317_230952

Honestly I wasn’t planning on getting this but the lady working in Sephora was recommending it to me and I tried it on my hand and I liked it. It works well as a contour and it gives that natural look after applying it, it has a really nice powdery matte finish and also blurs the skin so it hides any pores or imperfections. It blends easily and has a slight shimmer which faded after awhile after I tried it out. The package includes a brush and soft sponge which I haven’t used because I’m more used to my own brush collection.


Have you ever tried any of these products ? Let me know what do you think.

The Beauty Shop Haul

I recently went to visit The Beauty Shop to get ONE item which was a Body Scrub from Bomb Cosmetics but I ended up buying plenty of stuff and I thought of sharing it in this post.

IMG_20171008_190649_Fotor

Vamp Stamp

I’ve seen this in multiple ads on Twitter and I really wanted to try it, Brooke Clarke did an amazing review on it last month and it encouraged me to get it. I got Large because the price tag was covering the part where it’s written so I had to return it and get Medium even though I wanted to get Kitten size since I don’t like that dramatic winged line. I’m very impressed with this product because it created the perfect shape when I stamped it, it took few tries to get it right but it’ll definitely make my life easier.

Brush Cleaning Egg

Cleaning my brushes is one of my dreaded chores, and this tool made it so much easier. It cleans the brushes pretty well and it rests perfectly on my fingers while I use it, and it’s small enough to take it while travelling.

Bomb Cosmetics Mango & Vanilla Hair Mask

I won a giveaway on Bomb Cosmetics account that is run by a girl who provides the products to The Beauty Shop, one of the gifts that I received is a Shampoo bar called Flower Girl and I absolutely loved it. I thought of getting more hair products by this brand and test them out so I got this hair mask and it smells amazing. Like the name implies, it mostly smells fruity and I love it.

Bomb Cosmetics Scrubology Body Scrub

Finally the item I actually went to the shop to get, a body scrub. The reason why I chose this one in particular is because when I smelled the tester, I fell in love. It smells very floral and I’m pretty sure it’s roses, it was an instant yes to me. It made my skin really soft and moisturized since it’s oil based, the scent stayed for days.

Have you ever used these products before, let me know what you guys think. Hope you enjoyed this small haul post and have a great day.

The Beauty Shop Mini Haul

Hello everyone, I know it’s been awhile since I posted a haul post so I thought of doing it now during Eid days since I’m now less hectic I guess. The Beauty Shop is a store that sells Asian skincare products and also makeup, it’s been considered my favorite shop since I discovered it basically.

Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

I originally wanted to have a facial at the salon before eid but I had a rather weird encounter at that salon and I’m planning to post it as a storytime entry since I didn’t really do those for awhile. I couldn’t do facial at the salon so I thought of buying a good mask to make my face less zombie-ish looking and I chose this one because it’s not my first time trying it. I’m in love with this face mask, it leaves the skin really soft and moisturized instantly after washing it off. When you apply the paste using a plastic spatula which is provided in the box itself, the paste starts to bubble up for awhile and that was interesting. I highly recommend trying it out.

Bomb Cosmetics Starlight Express Blaster

I posted about Bomb Cosmetics before, I love their bath bombs because they look quite pretty and they shed less than Lush bath bombs in my opinion. I got this blaster because .. Stars ? Let me confess that I love star themed items basically so I didn’t focus on the scent till I used it recently. It’s lemon scented and it looks like a beautiful dessert honestly.

Bomb Cosmetics Starlight Blaster

The next bath bomb is also stars themed and also a bit fruity scented. I didn’t use it yet but I would love to see how the stars spreads out in the water and make the bath look like a starry night sky.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this haul post, have a great day.

LightInTheBox Haul

It’s been awhile since I posted a haul entry, as you know I’m quite a shopaholic when it comes to online shopping. LightInTheBox is a website for some reason I can’t stop buying from, you would know from the previous posts that I did before.

I recently started watching Assassination Classroom and Danganronpa so I wanted to get something related to these anime so I got these two shirts:

 xtuhvt1463727701183Assassination Classroom Shirt

Price: $15.99

I LOVE Korosensei, I want him to be my teacher. I was excited to get this shirt for that but I was disappointed that it’s not exactly like the picture on the website. The sleeves weren’t black, it was a plain white but the middle graphic is exactly like the picture. It’s a normal shirt nothing special about it, I like it anyway.

.

zmnncc1402048941276Danganronpa Monokuma Shirt

Price: $19.99

I’ve always wanted to buy a Monokuma Plushie but I wouldn’t mind a shirt so I got this shirt. Like the previous shirt, it’s not like the picture on the website. The logo of Hope’s Peak Highschool on the sleeve isn’t there and also the logos on the back aren’t there which is disappointing because I was really looking forward for this shirt.


Overall, I was really disappointed with the quality of the shirts to be honest. I also bought another two shirts and yoga clothing set which turned out looking great so it’s not all bad haul but I thought of posting these two since they both go together under anime category while the other clothing items are more for the gym.

Hope you enjoyed this post and have a nice day.

Inkbox – The 2 Week Tattoo Review

I’ve always wanted to have a tattoo but for religious reasons I can’t so obviously I would search for alternatives even if they weren’t permanent but at least I would cross it off my bucket list. I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a sponsored ad in my feed of Inkbox and I was instantly interested since it was about tattoos that would last 2 weeks or more so I decided to try it out and see for myself if it was worth it.

Inkbox has a organic formula basically and it’s from an indigenous tribes from the Panama who have been tattooing their skin with the pulp of a fruit which is called Genipapo or Huito. I thought it was similar to henna since we used it as well and it gives a stain to the skin but not as black as this one so they are a bit different.

I ordered two tattoos to try out which are the Gualaca and Memento Mori, so I tried out Gualaca first which looks like this basically.

gualaca

It’s small and easy to place so I tried it on my shoulder and followed the instructions that came in the box with the whole kit. It doesn’t show instantly, it takes about 12 to 36 hours to fully become black and dark. The only mistake I did was when I was pressing the cloth on the tattoo, I readjust it few times which made the ink stain my skin on the outer parts of the tattoo and it looked like I’ve spray painted it with a stencil.

Knowing that mistake, I decided to do the second tattoo on my arm the next day. The box basically comes like this.

img_6375

The tattoo was bigger than the stars one I mentioned earlier so it took more space. Again I followed the instructions but this time I tried keeping the cloth in place. The whole process isn’t painful at all but I would say peeling the sticker of the tattoo when I was done was painful kinda.

Here’s the tattoo I tried.

memento_mori

Here’s how it looked like right after I peeled the sticker when I was done.

img_6376

And here’s how it looked like 12 hours later.

img_6378

I don’t why it spilled a bit of a leak on “Mori” but other than that I am so in love with it and it made me want to make it permanent because I’ve always wanted a tattoo of “Memento Mori”

and here’s how it looks like after two days

img_6397

Gualaca was $19 and Memento Mori was $23

As for how long these tattoos lasted, I noticed Memento Mori faded a lot faster than the stars. I could say they started to fade after the first week so I guess it satisfied the “2 Week Tattoo” part. In terms of color, The stars were a bit more black than Memento Mori which seemed more blue. I don’t know if it’s related to the skin type, location or even the pressure done when I applied them in the first place.

Overall, I’m honestly in love with these tattoos and I’m going to try different designs obviously and order more from the website.

Thank you for reading and have a great day.
