Coccinelle Event Competition – Spring/Summer Collection2015

Since they opened their shop here in Malta two years ago, they have organized this fun event where their clientele get the chance to win 3 beautiful handbags from their Spring / Summer collection of 2015. Last year they made 3 boxes and if you had the lucky key you get to win a bag. This year they gave really cute metal details and whoever had the matching detail to the bag, get’s to win one of their gorgeous handbags.

It is really nice of them to create such an event each year and I am grateful for being invited once again. Unfortunately I wasn’t lucky  and I didn’t win any of their bags, but it gave me an opportunity to drool at their lovely bags.  If you are not aware of this handbag brand, they are designed in Italy using the finest materials and real leather. Their bags are upscale even price wise, but if you feel like spending money on good quality bag Coccinelle is the choice for you.  I simply love the shape, style, colours and their attention to detail which is seen in all of their handbags.

Coccinelle Malta Event

About two weeks ago I was invited to the Even Coccinelle hosted in their stylish store.  They came up with this great idea of giving 3 gorgeous hanbags from their new Spring Summer Collection to be won to their clients. What I simply loved was their originality of creating such an event, which was to give each guest a Key and if they were lucky it would open one of their 3 boxes that contained the handbags.

I was given a key but unfortunately, luck was not on my side but I still got to view their gorgeous new collection. I seriously wanted to take every bag from their store but being that I recently bought a car I am on a very tight budget. However I can’t wait to afford buying a gorgeous new handbag from their store.

The store was stylish as always, and they even made the guest feel like celebrities by caving a red carpet and some music on. The collection is simply beautiful, it has all you need from small purses to huge shopping bags in all the beautiful bright colours spring can offer.  They even gave us a the cutest and yummiest vanilla cookies with their logo on as a consolation price.

Well done to Coccinelle for this fun event, may there be more to come. If you are looking for some stylish and great quality italian leather handbags look nowhere else. You will find thier fabulous store at  11 Tower Road, Sliema.

Mini Accessories Haul

Hi guys,

So about a month or two ago, I really needed some retail therapy so I bought a couple of items from various websites online. I have been craving for a couple of handbags and I have been loving these designer smile bags. They can vary in pricing at it depends if they are real leather or not and even which colour you choose. I thought of treating myself for the real deal. I was initially going to it all in black but then the smile wouldn’t be visible, so I opted for the black and white one.

I am absolutely in love with this handbag, might buy another one in a different colour as it is super cute. It is quite a heavy bag and can by tiring if you wear it on your wrist for a long time. However comes with a nice long strap which can give you a different option of how to hold this handbag. I also love that is has these metal studs at the bottom of the bag which can keep it from getting dirty, if you leave it on the floor.

I also got this lovely summer handbag for a cheap price on e-bay, I use it currently for work because it quite spacious and very light to carry. It’s perfect for summer, as I like to carry light objects.

When it comes to jewelry, I have been seeing women wearing necklaces with their name tag which were very popular in the 90’s. The 90’s has definitely come back in 20th century. I managed to find the sterling silver necklace with my name on it and I bought it from ebay. I really like it, and many commented on how cute it looks.

Well that is all for now guys, keep posted as I have some interesting new make-up look coming up and more reviews for you guys, so keep posted :D.

It’s all about the Lips

One of Summer’s make-up trends is wearing very simple and neutral eye-shadow while having lovely bright, bold colored lips. It is however very important to be careful with regards to what colors should you choose. Pink and Red colours look great on all skin tones but there are various types of pinks and reds, so make sure you are picking the right colour.

  • For fair skin: coral reds or dark reds with pink undertones.
  • For medium or olive skin: pink and cranberry shades, and brick reds.
  • For dark skin: reds with burgundy or brown tones.

Matte lipsticks are pretty much in vogue nowadays. I haven’t seen a catwalk model wearing a glossy a lipstick. I love a matte lipstick, it looks gorgeous on the lips without showing too much. I used to be scared wearing red lips when I was younger because I had the idea of it not looking good on me or making me look older. If you chose the right colour, it won’t make you older, and it won’t look bad.

This summer is enabling us to be creative and colorful with make-up, so let’s enjoy this time and do the best we can with it. 🙂

My Mini OPI Haul

Hey guys :),

So I have a tendency to obsess on different objects at different times. I find something which I am lacking of at the moment and but a lot of options. Recently I had an OPI nail laquer obsession, and bought a couple of products from e-bay.

The first thing I bought was the OPI nail envy for me and my sister, my sister nails were needing some serious treatment and she used my nail envy and fell in love with it. My nail envy is almost finished (thanks to my sister :p), so I bought one for her and one for me. So now she doesn’t have to borrow mine anymore.

I already reviewed this miracle worker before but as you can see I truly love it. At first I was skeptical because I tried many hardeners before and did nothing for my thin nails, and at first I wasn’t seeing any change. But then I saw miracles after a couple of weeks, my nails truly become harder and grew stronger. Unfortunately recently I went trough a stressful time and my nails become thinner and started chipping again. That means they need a dose of nail envy.20130711_224343

The second thing I bought is the cute Mini set of nail lacquers in neon colours. Being that nails aren’t in the best shape at the moment, I thought by buying this set will make me look more forward to get them in shape :). Also neon colors are very much in vogue nowadays, I personally don’t like them on clothes because I find neon can look a bit trashy. However I do like neon colors on my nails and some type of accessories, especially now in Summer. Can’t wait to try them out and review them for you :D.

That is all for now guys, keep posted for more reviews and interesting make-up looks coming up.

E.L.F HAUL -Baked Bronzer

Hey guys,

Every month I look at my make up and see what I have missing that I really need. I realized that I didn’t have any bronzer compacts and the one I have are slowly coming to an end. I usually use the bronzers I have on my e.l.f complete the look palette which are quite good but unfortunately when you apply it once a lot of products comes off.  So recently with the 50% offer I got these two Baked Bronzers in 2 colors. I got St. Lucia and Los Cabos.

Los cabos and St Lucia

St.Lucia is a light bronzer color while the Los Cabos is a bit darker. I have to say I quite like these bronzers, they do not have any shimmer and give a nice bronze glow when applied. The pigmentation is OK but could be better because you need to apply it a couple of time to deliver the right pigmentation. These are perfect to either use them as a contouring blush for Winter or else as a nice bronzing color for Summer.

The packaging is also nice as it has a nice transparent lid and  it only costs £3.75 which is incredibly cheap. I do recommend it to anyone, as who wouldn’t want a cheap nice looking bronzer?  🙂

That is all for now, keep posted for more reviews and make up looks
