To say that I've been missing from the blogosphere for ages, would be an understatement. Sometimes life gets in the way of lipsticks and blushers, a busy work schedule and a Spanish holiday. And the latter brought me satisfaction, a natural tan, a good auld rest and KIKO. I nearly screamed when I heard that there was a Kiko store near to where our vila was located, as I've long dreamt about their Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows....actually 'long' means ever since I saw one featured on Karen's blog (you naughty enabler, you!). So of course I bought not one, but three 'stickos de alegria (Spanish for joy)'.

I love matte eyeshadows and I love cream formulas, so when Clarins came out with the news of their new 'Ombre Matte' Eyeshadows as part of their 2014 Autumn collection, I knew they would be winners on my list. And winners they were...

It's practically no secret that I've been M.I.A. for the past few months, when one loses the blogging mojo, it's a struggle to get it back, at least to me it is. A great way of sliding right back onto the blogging rink I thought, was to do a round-up of my current favourites, as reviews can get and do get quite boring at some stage and people get sick of them, I know I do all the time.

Hands up who doesn't like a good auld, affordable and widely available cream blusher. Nobody? Good, cause there's a new cream blusher in town, kids, and it's a blahdy good one!

The month of April brings a bit of Spring sunshine into our lives, but also offers the new Rouge Edition Velvet lip lacquer by Bourjois, on a 'silver platter' in pharmacies nationwide. Launching a total of eight shades, Bourjois is kindly spoiling us to more than their own version of the super trendy lip colours in liquid form, they bring us matte lip lacquers and y'all know how desperately I love my matte lip colours! For the purposes of introducing these to you, I have three shades to show you today, however I am very much positive that I shall be purchasing a few extra shades in the coming weeks, it would be wrong not to nearly complete (ahem!) the collection, don't you think?
BOURJOIS ROUGE EDITION VELVET
RRP: 12.49 Euro

Today's post features what is probably the most beautiful perfume bottle I have ever seen. I am talking about the new 'Dolce' by Dolce & Gabbana as the title suggests, and I can still remember the first time I laid my eyes on a photo of the bottle online, only back in February that was, and how I excitedly tweeted about it three seconds later:
See? It was love at first sight!
Its juice was green, it had a classy black bow tie, it had the most beautiful perfume flower topper ever ( to pay tribute to Sicilian customs, crafted to portray the marzipan sculptures seen in traditional Sicilian confectioners) and it was announced to be a white floral, which is my favourite ever perfume group! My most treasured and beloved scents from my ever growing collection belong to this group. All in all, it was going to be a success for my nose, and boy was I right!
