🌸Shopaholic’s Summer in  Pastels OOTD🌸

🌸Hello Loves❤️

🌸I know I have been a bit tardy in posting OOTD’s lately but fasting for 15 hours a day 🤐coupled with the awful🔥☀️ weather  frankly left me exhausted. 

🌸However since today was the weekend 🎉 and I wasn’t feeling the hunger pangs as yet 😉 I decided to put together a look that required minimal effort.

🌸I love wearing pastel colors in the summer, they look light and airy and effortless. For this look I paired a soft peach colored top with my white jeans, & since it is so unbearably ☀️hot I kept the accessories to a minimum.

🌸Here’s the finished look 😘

🌸Outfit details ;

🌸Top: Loft

🌸Jeans : Lucky Brand

🌸Shoes : Steve Madden

🌸Bag : Loft 

🌸Jewelry : Accesoriez, Blue Nile

🌸Did you  guys enjoy this OOTD❓, let me know in the comments I love hearing from you 😘

✨Shopaholic Tries Online 🛍Shopping✨

Hello Peeps!💕

✨Now to those of you who might find this title a tad bit befuddling . (Hello❗️what’s so earth 🌎shattering about online  shopping❓)

✨Let me clarify, while online shopping might be a way of routine life elsewhere in the world (I miss you Amazon.com 😫). Here in the good old UAE it’s pretty much a foriegn concept. 

✨So you can imagine how excited I was when I finally came upon an online retailer that offered not only the convenience of online shopping (granted its a tad bit primitive, what can I say my time in California has spoiled me 🤗) but also cash on delivery 🤑.

✨Nevertheless since beggars can’t be choosers and I couldn’t find this particular product in stores I decided to give Barsha Care a try. 

✨Barsha Care is a UAE based online retailer that offers a wide range of premium skin care and beauty products that are certified and registered in the UAE. You have the option of paying online or upon delivery. Products are delivered within one working day. 

✨The brand list is not exhaustive, neither do they offer many organic🍃 and vegan products but if you are a mainstream product user you will find something you like. I was lucky to find the Dr Hauschka line which was not available anywhere else.  

 ✨I placed my order online, and was given the option of choosing three samples to add to my order.

  ✨Since my order was above 100 AED I got free delivery. I received a call the next day to confirm the delivery day and time and sure enough one working day later I had my items. 😇 

✨I ordered the Dr Hauschka Neem Oil treatment for cuticles since my nails and cuticles are a disaster 😖at the moment. (Why do these things happen to me❓😫).

✨Dr Hauschka is a holistic skin care line that offers specially designed cosmetics, skin care products and essential oil treatments to restore vitality and radiance by harnessing the power of natural ingredients.🍃

✨The items arrived packaged in a cardboard box with the Barsha Care logo.  

  ✨The nail treatment is in a pen tip applicator tube you press down on the tip to dispense the oil. It is 73 AED for a 3 ml tube which is horrendously steep 💸😡. 

✨The samples are also tinny😪, and are for a single use 💦only 😐. I am really excited to try the Filorga anti fatigue mask, which I’ve heard great reviews about and can’t afford otherwise 😢.The other sample is some sort of serum from the Skin Ceuticals brand I’ve never tried this one before. Lastly there is the good old Bio Derma gel cream. I swear whats with these samples being Barbie sized❓  ✨So that’s it peeps, so far I’ve had a good experience with Barsha Care in terms of their delivery. Their prices 💰are the same as those in stores so you don’t get the conventional benefit savings that you traditionally associate with shopping online. 

✨Would I shop here again? Maybe if I can’t find that item in stores, was it a fulfilling, mood lifting, world changing shopping experience ? No way! no coupons, no specials, no offer codes... Thanks but I’ll stick with Amazon 😘

✨Where do you guys shop online? Let me know I’m all ears👂🏻😁.

✨Shopaholic Enchanted ✨

💕Hey Guys!

✨Today’s product ✨review is going to be all about the eyes 👁. I am forever on the hunt🔎 for the holy grail👼🏼 of eye creams. One that can once and for all get rid of the dark circles, puffiness, lines and all those pesky problems all of us face. 

✨This time I decided to try out the highly rated Lush Enchanted Eye Cream. I had already bought and am currently using their Dream Cream which I love💕 you check out that review here.     ✨The Enchanted Eye Cream comes in a 45 gram pump bottle with the signature black and white Lush packaging. It is formulated for both day and night use. Ingredients include almond oil, lavender water, jojoba oil and glycerin  ✨It has a very light consistency, not too thick but not runny either. You really need a tiny amount, it absorbs quickly and moisturizes the delicate eye area.

  ✨In terms of combating ⚒eye area problems it delivers fairly well at moisturizing, no more dry creepy skin, dark circles are improved, I haven’t had to use concealer since I started using this. Not to say that my dark circles are completely gone but they have gotten considerably lighter. I don’t have fine lines so i cannot comment on that aspect.

✨Overall I would rate this cream a 4.5/5!✨ Have you guys tried any Lush products? Which one do you recommend I would love to know! 😘

💄What’s In My Basket❓ A Shopaholic’s Beauty Stash💄

Hello Lovelies !💟

💟Today I’m going to give you guys a peak inside my bathroom basket. As you know I’m a skincare junkie and I love trying new organic products 💕.Since my bathroom lacks adequate storage space I have to make do with putting my things in baskets on any available surface space😐. 

 💟Lately however, my basket has been overflowing with items making it difficult for me to get to things without having to tip the whole lot out.😳 So I decided It was time to do a toss and repurchase  pile.

💟Ready for the big reveal ❓Here goes 💕!  

💟Lets start sorting 

💟Lets get the hair accessories out of the way first , starting with my Body Shop hairbrush which I love 💕. I ended up repurchasing this as I broke the old one 😪. Then there is my big old wide toothed comb which is a must post hair washing for detangling. I cannot imagine even attempting to sort my hair without it .

💟 Then there are my assorted hair bands for keeping my overgrown bangs out of my face till I can find a hairdresser to give me the perfect fringe..sigh..If anyone in Dubai knows an awesome ✨hairdresser please do let me know.

💟I love fragrances so I always have an assortment at hand these are my current favs – Estée Lauder Pleasures, Chanel Chance, Crab Tree & Evelyn Pear & Magnolia & of course the good old Bath and Body Works mini for on the go spritzes .😘

💟My Andalou favorites , the 1000🌹 Roses Day cream , Visibly Firm Day cream, Chia Seed Exfoliator and the Natural Glow oil . Repurchase yes please ! ✨

💟My other long term favorite MooGoo, this is an Australian brand that makes all natural, organic 🍃products. I currently use their Brightening cream, SPF 40,lipshine by Dusty girls a sister company of MooGoo, the natural deodorant, 3 Vitamin Eye Serum, Super Vitamin Eye Serum and Tamanu oil.   Repurchase maybe 🤔 

💟The Lush dream cream,Gurugu hand cream I recently reviewed. Check it out here. Plus a recent purchase the Lush Enchanted Eye Cream 💕which I will be reviewing soon. Repurchase yes !

💟I found the Fade cream a while ago in Boots and decided to try it on some sun🔅 spots I got courtesy of Dubai 😡. After 3 weeks of usage I have seen zero results so this one will be a toss for sure. 👿

💟Plato’s scar serum and cream these came highly recommended but failed miserably at delivering 😡😡. Toss!

💟Crab Tree and Evelyn hand creams, I love theses minis 💕especially the Rose 🌹scented ones 💖. Repurchase yes please!

💟Finally the Morrocon Argan oil , I used this product all up, but didn’t see any remarkable results other than it being a good overall moisturizer. Repurchase maybe 🤔

💟The Juice Beauty Serum and Hair Smoothie which I got in my Petit Vour Box and honestly didn’t care for. Toss

💟There you have it guys✨ a peak inside my beauty basket ! Hope you guys enjoyed this post💕. Let me know your comments I would love to hear from you 😘.

🍃Shopaholic’s Product Review : Andalou Naturals Visibly Firm Day & Night Cream🍃

🔆Hello Peeps!

It’s summer time 🔆 and since summers equal 🔥heat and humidity💧its the perfect time to switch up my skincare. My skin needs moisture and hydration without the products being too heavy. 

When Andalou contacted me to choose from their line I opted for the Coconut milk day and night cream duo. Like all of Andalou’s products these are 🍃100% vegan, cruelty 🐰free, Non GMO certified and gluten free.   Both the day and night creams come in 1.7oz tubes with an airless pump dispenser. Coconut water is the primary ingredient in both creams along with Aqua Cacteen extract for hydration, vitamin c 🍊 and Green Coffee extract for restoring firmness and suppleness to the skin.  First off I love the sweet coconut fragrance in both creams it’s a very mild scent not at all overwhelming which i cannot bear 😷atleast on my face.  The texture of both creams is very satiny and very light on the skin. If you have severly dry skin I would not recommend using these creams atleast not without a serum beforehand. 

Overall I am very 💕satisfied with these creams they are light yet hydrating and best of all they are all natural 🌿.

I rate these creams 5/5✨! Have you tried any Andalou products? What was your experience ? Let me know in the comments I would love to hear from you 😘.
