Guess who's back!

Hi guys! I truly missed this blog *sniffs*. I know I've been totally MIA, and honestly it's the same old excuses, life distracted me. Lame, I know.. But do not fear! I really want to start this blog up again and focus on it more, so this post is kind of a promise to you guys and myself as well to get back into it. I kinda wanna say I'm back and I'm better, but let's not jinx it.

I revamped the blog and gave it a new look. to go with this new chapter. What do you think of it? I'm also going to restart my Instagram up again to follow up with future blog posts, so be sure to check it out and give it a follow at @linakhalifa to stay up to date!

Let me know in the comments what you guys have been up to, what have I been missing? Fill me in on everything! Also, what would you guys like to see more of on my blog? Since I'm getting back into the swing of things, your feedback is really important to me!

Thanks for reading! Sending everyone lots of love. x

The Liebster Award

I've been nominated by the lovely Nataša for the Liebster Award, and she wrote down some really interesting questions for me to answer! Sora also nominated me for the award, but unfortunately, I saw it after I had already wrote the post.. However, thanks for the nomination, girls!



I'll leave all the details for this, along with my questions and nominees down below! I hope you enjoy getting to know me a little better!


1. How did you decide to start a blog?
I've always been into makeup and beauty, it was something I had so much fun doing, and so I felt like I needed an outlet to share my love with the world, which is why I decided to start a little blog and write about my interests. 

2. Are you proud of your blog right now or you think you could do it better?
I'm proud of my blog but I do aim to make it better and better. I want to grow and be able to produce more content with great quality, and I'm on the path to do so now! 

3. Is there anything you don't like about blogging?
I don't think there is? I thoroughly enjoy doing it and being a part of it!

4. What motivates you to write posts?
I always imagine myself creating content that I would enjoy reading, which is what motivates me to do good on this blog! I wanna always be proud of the posts I write.

5. What is something that you always wanted? And did you ever get it?
I can't think of something specific right now, haha. However, I will say that I feel really blessed with everything that I do have, even if I don't have everything I want!

6. If you could have a dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
Hmm, tough question! I think if it was someone alive, it would be Benedict Cumberbatch, haha! That's the first person that came to mind. I love his acting, especially on Sherlock (aah, one of my favorite shows), and I think it would definitely be an interesting dinner..

7. Some of your most favorite lyrics?
The first thing that I thought of is "Head in the clouds, but my gravity's centered" (that's actually my Instagram bio) which is part of Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood. I love those guys so much, they're one of my favorite bands! The lyrics, to me, mean that even though I dream big and want to achieve some amazing things, I have to stay focused and deal with reality and actually make it happen. Overall, music is a really big part of my life and I definitely get attached to songs and lyrics a lot.

8. Is there something you’ve always wanted to try but have been too scared to?
Definitely dyeing my hair silver/platinum blond! I see everyone doing it these days, and they look amazing with that hair colour, but I can't imagine myself ever doing it!

9. What is your favorite Disney movie?
I don't think I really have one :( They're all great but cartoons aren't really my thing..

10. What's your dream job?
I'd love to work in the makeup industry, but something that also relates to business/marketing.. Maybe PR? I'm still trying to figure it out! If any of you reading this has a job related to those things, tell me what you think of it? Help a little girl out, haha.

11. If tomorrow was the end of the world what would be your last meal?
That's a cool question.. I think I'd go for a nice yummy burger! Or some boneless buffalo wings with chili cheese fries! I think I'll be dreaming about them now..

So that's all for these questions! That was actually so fun, I loved doing it! Here are my questions for the nominees.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams: Review and Swatches


Hey guys! I'm so excited for this post. A few posts ago, I did a Drugstore Makeup Haul and I promised I would review these lip creams, so here I am! These are the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, which have quickly become some of my favorite lip products among my collection. NYX have an amazing range to choose from, and even better, they just added new shades to the collection (which look absolutely gorgeous!)

Before I get to the actual review, here are the new shades they added in case you are interested.
I can't wait to get my hands on some of these, especially the top four shades, how gorgeous are they?
