Shopaholic Beauty Solutions: Under Eye Circles 🐼

Hola Love 🐰 Bunnies!

Today I’m going to be discussing a problem and dispelling some myths about a persistent beauty concern that plagues both men and women :”Dark circles” .  

🐼Did you know that each year over $1billion worth of eye care products are bought by consumers? That’s some serious cash 💰 being spent each year to try and correct a problem that doesnt seem to respond any type of skincare product regardless of the claims made.

🐼Over the years I too have played the part of the gullible, willing consumer clamoring for the latest new product to hit the store  shelves :  everything from creams, gels, roller ball serums, homemade masks, iced teaspoons even microneedling 😖ouch! In a series of failed attempts to try and rid myself of these persistent dark shadows that have me fending off questions like : Didn’t you sleep last night? Are you sick? 😒

🐼Finally burnt out from my ⚗️experiments I decided to pay a visit to a couple of dermatologists to try and figure out the mystery behind solving this predicament.

So here is the verdict

🐼Dark circles if hereditary meaning if they are not caused by lack of sleep or a poor diet cannot be removed via topical applications like creams, gels, serums or if you are a DIY queen 👸🏼 via 🍋 lemons, aloe vera gel, vitamin capsules , cucumbers 🥒 or 🥔 potatoes.

🐼Serious dark circles which are sometimes accompanied by hollows under the eyes can only be treated by fillers or laser therapy or a combination of both.

🐼Now here you have a few options ; you can either opt for cosmetic fillers : Juvederm, Restalyne etc and follow that up with a few sessions of laser therapy ( your doctor will decide based on your individual case which laser to use). 

🐼Your second option if you are vary of cosmetic fillers which I totally am btw 😣. Is to opt for PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy which involves injecting the plasma in your own blood in the troublesome areas . Personally if I ever do get over my terror of needles the latter will be the option I will be looking into. The idea of injecting my own blood while squeamish is still a much safer option than cosmetic fillers which come with their own set of complications : bruising, lumpiness to name a few not to mention hideously expensive. 💸

🐼So there you have it peeps a short and hopefully informative insight into the mystery of dark circles and how to go about getting rid of them. Hope this post was helpful to those of you struggling with this problem and will end up keeping you from spending your hard earned💸 money on useless creams and potions. 

🐼Hey if nothing else you can atleast invest in a few good concealers to camouflage those panda rings while you makeup your mind about which treatment to pursue.

If you have any other info about dealing with dark circles I would love to hear it 💕. Leave me a comment below 😘

🍃Shopaholic reviews : Aztec Secret Indian Beauty Clay🍃

Hola Bunnies 🐰💕

🍃Today on the blog I will be reviewing a product that I found to be highly rated by beauty bloggers and highly reviewed on Amazon : “The Aztec Secret Indian Beauty Clay”.

🍃Consisting of 100% calcium bentonite clay it is supposed to rejuvenate, refresh and beautify your skin. Isn’t that what they all claim 😒. 🍃The clay is to be mixed with either 💦 , apple 🍎 cider vinegar or rose 🌹 water to make a thick paste which you apply leave on for 10-15 ⏲mins or till it dries and wash off. For me the mask got uncomfortably tight as it dried and to be very honest I saw no difference whatsoever in my skin post the application. 😭

👎🏻I have had way better results with my DIY masks then this . Neither did it make any difference to acne prone skin ( I made my sister try it on her breakouts). All in all I give it a big fat thumbs down 👎🏻.

🍃Have you guys tried this product? Which mask would you recommend let me know in the comments down below 😘

Until next time loves 💕

🎉Shopaholic’s Versatile Blogger Award!🎉

Hello my lovely blogging friends! 

I know I know I have been totally ignoring the blog for the longest time but hear me out. Way too many things were going on at once and I am so bad at managing time that a lot of things took a back seat and unfortunately the blog was one of them.

Anyways with my studies hopefully under control, unexpected vacations over and a wonderful opportunity to make a comeback thanks to the lovely lady over at strictlylighthearted 💕. I will be more regular with my posts incase anyone was missing them (fingers crossed🤞🏼).

So here is today’s comeback post (do I sound like a flop movie star ⭐️ trying too hard 😋). The ✨Versatile Blogger Award!✨. Do check out strictlylighthearted’s blog esp her totally funny award post 🤣.

So as per the rules I have to tell you guys 7 things about myself, so here goes peeps. TMI time 😋

1- I still haven’t figured out what I want to do with myself I mean I have bopped from one interest  to another in hopes of finding a fit but nothing has worked out for me yet. So if anyone out there is wondering if they are the only looser out there who doesn’t have a clue what to do with their life maybe we should get together and start a club 😖.

2– I have recently become addicted 😍to the CW series Crazy ex girl friend and omg I can so relate to her idiotic and downright frustrating antics … anyone else a fan ?

3-I realized on my recent trip to Prague, that I adore 💕traveling to places that have legends and myths associated with them not just shit boring historical facts 👸🏼🤴

4– I often wonder if every one else’s life is as routine and uneventful as mine 🤔

5- I wish people would have the common courtesy of not talking just amongst themselves and leaving the third person feeling like a moron and having to resort to mindlessly playing with their phone. (Yes I’m referring to yours truly 🙄)

6– I wish society would drop the fake beauty standards already I mean aren’t we exhausted ladies? Fake eye lashes, extensions, implants ,fillers, having a perfectly baked, contoured face and the list goes on and on….

7-I can totally tell the difference between a genuine and fake compliment now 😳 A real compliment makes me ridiculously happy 😊 

So guys hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little bit better 😘

I’ll only be nominating three people even though there are tons of wonderful bloggers out there ✨

🌚Super Short OOTD 🌚

🌚Hello Everyone ✨

🌚Long time no see! I have been totally mute for the last couple of days so just incase you were wondering if I had been abducted by aliens 👽(I should be so lucky 😒).

🌚Nope I’m still here where I have always been … if that sounds pathetic it’s because it actually is..😒 I have been stuck in a rut forever it seems and lately it’s starting to bug me more than ever. I read recently a post by someone who announced that they had finally found their true passion in life ( career wise people💵) and that they were able to ditch their 9-5 and go live their dream. While I was genuinely happy for them it made me wonder what exactly was my goal/passion in life and when the f*** was I going to be able to do it instead of wandering about aimlessly wasting precious time⏰.

🌚I was asked by a friend of mine back in grade school what my special talent was and I remember looking at her blankly and eventually conceding that it was nothing.😔 We have always been told that every person has some unique talent but even after years of searching I have drawn a blank.😶

🌚Anyways at times thoughts like these get me severely( I’m not going to say depressed) upset☹️. When that happens I shut myself away from everyone, I swear if there was a hibernation 🐻contest amongst humans I would take first prize 🏆.  

🌚Luckily for me I got a call from FedEx this morning informing I had a parcel delivery from good old USA 😍and that flipped my mood switch instantly. I swear shopping is the best therapy out there 💞.

🌚So here is today’s very short OOTD, mostly because I had forgotten to charge my camera and it died after two shots 😡.

Enjoy guys 😘🌚You can tell I’m not back to being my usual overly cheerful self still 😉

💋Shopaholic’s Closet Remix OOTD💋

✨I love 💞shopping for new clothes I swear if I could wear a new outfit every single day I would be the happiest chicka alive 😍.

✨However due to my limited budget, that is one fantasy I’ll have to put on hold for now 😡. Which is why I have learnt to shop smarter 🤓, buying pieces which can be remixed and reworn is not only budget friendly it also extends your wardrobe choices.

✨So today’s OOTD is all about repeating some old favorites and getting more bang for my wardrobe buck 💵.✨Some of you might remember this dress from a previous OOTD. When I came across it again today I decided to style it a bit differently so it didn’t appear so beachy 💧this time around .

✨The denim jacket is one of my favorite pieces which I got on clearance🎉 and it works equally well with jeans, chinos or skirts. 

✨The sandals are again an old favorite that I pulled out since I had a lot of walking to do today, they are 100% leather and super comfy.

✨The bag 💞pulls the entire look together for me, it adds sophistication to an otherwise casual look. I love this color for fall🍂 and the fact that it’s a crossbody is always a winner for me.

Dress : Aeropostle 

Jacket : Banana Republic Petites

Sandals : Toms

Bag: Tory Burch

Glasses : Tom Ford.

Let me know how you guys remix stuff from your wardrobe 😘
