Bath & Body Works Haul!

I discovered a couple of days ago, as I was shopping with my mother, that I get really excited over scents and body care products. So when I found out that Bath & Body Works had a sale on, I just couldn't walk past it and not pick some few things up!

So first off, we got some shower gels. These smell... amazing! As soon as you open it and put some on your shower loofah, the smell of both of these fill the whole bathroom. They honestly make me want to stay in the shower for hours smelling them! They also linger on your body after a wash, making you smell good and making everyone around you know it! 

Next are these amazing foaming hand soaps, these are probably my favorite out of the haul. They are in a liquid form, but when you pump them out of the bottle, they turn into a foam structure, so you massage them into your hands, wash your hands, then end up smelling them every 5 seconds. Both of these smell so fruity and wonderful. I wish I bought even more of these! 

Last but not least, is this cooling foot spray. Now, I don't have much to say about this since I've only tried it a couple of times, but it does smell good, and it is soothing for your feet. So, if you've had a long day and want to just rest in bed and not move at all, spray this on your feet and it will help!

Aaand, that concludes today's post! I hope you guys liked it. Sadly, I didn't find any candles on sale and that was upsetting, but nonetheless, I'm glad I got these stuff! 

Have you checked out Bath & Body Works's sale? What products do you like most?

H&M Wishlist

You know what gets me excited? SHOPPING. And since I can't do it in person, I'm doing it through my phone and adding some things to my wishlist (and crying because they're not mine - yet.)

Since I'm traveling in a few days, I thought this would be perfect since I'll be doing a whole lot of shopping, so why not prepare myself and see what I like most to try and grab them while I'm shopping. Since H&M is one of my favorite stores, I decided to start with that. 

Okay okay, let's get down to business. 

H M cardigan

H M black hat

H M nail polish

So, let's talk a bit about those wonderful things, shall we? 
1/2 - First of, look at those cardigans! How comfortable do they look? I love oversized cardigans and I'm definitely gonna be looking for these when I go shopping at H&M. The white one's £6 and the beige-ish one is for £12 

3- And here we have this rad moto jacket, doesn't it scream badass to you? I think this jacket looks really cool, and wouldn't mind adding it to my wardrobe at all. This jacket retails for £30

4 - Okay so, if you know me, you know I like beanies and hats. I've seen this black hat around in H&M before, but never got to actually buying it (even though I try it on every time and ask everyone around me if I look nice.) So, I'm not sure if I'm getting it this time, but it's still getting on my wishlist. This hat is for £7.99

5- Look at those sunglasses though! I actually wear eyeglasses and when I go out I barely remember to put my shades on, but if it's extra sunny, and you've got some extra cool-looking sunglasses in your bag, you can't say no, can you? These sunglasses are sold for £5.99

6- This was a bit random but I do really need a new black nail-polish (favorite nail-polish to put on!) and since I've tried (and loved) H&M's nail-polishes and their brushes are great, I decided to pick this up next time I'm in there. This nail-polish costs £2.99

7- My sister (which has yet to make an appearance on this blog*) and I have been eyeing this foundation brush for a while, I own one brush by H&M and to be honest, it's the only brush I use, so why not add one more to the group? This brush is for £5.99

8- Lastly, this NUDES eyeshadow palette caught my eye as soon as I saw it, the colors are really nice in my opinion, and I'd love to try it out. This palette is £3.99

So that is all for today's post, if you wanna check out more of my sets and see the prices and the full description of each product on Polyvore, head over here. What's your favorite store to shop from?

*I just wanted to let you guys now that the only reason my sister isn't posting is because she's studying for her exams, but she'll be done soon and hopefully we're gonna get this blog going and it'll be even better with her here! Wish her luck folks! Thanks for reading xo

Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence

One thing you should know about me is that music means everything to me, whenever I'm sad, happy, or in any weird mood, I automatically open my music library and listen to something that suits my mood. 

So as soon as Lana Del Rey's new album came out, I had to give it a listen since Lana is one of my favourite artists! And let me tell you, I wasn't disappointed at all. All the songs on this album are great, and her voice is amazing as usual!

This album isn't that different from her other two albums, but it's just as good. Her voice makes me feel calm as soon as I listen to it. One of my favourite songs on the Ultravoilence album so far is Brooklyn Baby which was a track written by Lana and her boyfriend Barrie-James O'Neill. Other than that song, I also really like listening to West Coast which is the lead single of the album. Fun fact: Lana debuted West Coast live at Coachella!

Of course, I love every song on that album, how can I not? It's Lana Del Rey's album! If you'd like to know what else I've been listening to lately, check out my SoundCloud account.

Have you listened to Ultravoilence yet? What's your favourite song of Lana's?

GUESS Seductive Eau De Toilette

Let me just tell you, perfumes are a valuable thing for me. I just love smelling good, and I love people who smell good! I wouldn't mind asking someone what perfume they're wearing if I like how it smells, because why deny myself some good perfume?

Anyway, let's get into this amazing perfume. GUESS Seductive Eau De Toilette is one of my favorite perfumes, I've had it for a while now, it's sort of sitting in my room as a decor at this point because I don't wanna use it but that's only cause I don't wanna finish it!

Now I'm warning you, I'm not the best when it comes to describing scents, and I might as well not even try, but this scent is just so good. It just smells classy, I don't know how to explain it, but it just smells like complete goodness! Here's how the GUESS website describes the scent: "A glamorous fragrance with flowery notes and a woody tinge. Sexy and sparkling, it combines perfectly with the skin and gives it irresistible and unique femininity". I totally agree with that description, so if you want to grab a new perfume for your collection, I'd definitely suggest you check this one out! 

The packaging isn't anything special, but it is quite clean, if you know what I mean. I do love the little heart dangling next to the logo, it adds a bit of mold to the bottle.  
I got this one on sale, but normally, this 75 ml bottle retails for GBP 54.00, stated on their UK website.

Am I the only one that hates it when a bottle of perfume finishes? What's your favorite perfume?

#OOTD | Lina Khalifa

Yesterday, I went out with my friends, we had lunch by the beach and I've gotta say this, the view was amazing! I just love staring at the beach and the sunsets and clearing my mind, nothing makes me as happy as that.  

I decided to go with this outfit as it's a bit casual but the cardigan will keep me cozy if it gets windy by the beach. And I braided my hair into a fishtail (I can't believe it turned out somewhat proper).
Also, excuse my face, the sun was way too bright! 
Ahh, this cardigan from Forever 21 is just my favorite piece of clothing ever, it's so comfortable and cozy and I love it! 

Look at how pretty the sunset was, amazing. 

Striped top: H&M
Black undershirt: H&M 
Jeans (or jeggings): Zara 
Cardigan: Forever 21 
Bag (mentioned in What's In My Bag post): H&M 
Shoes: Debenhams 

I'm a big fan of H&M as you can tell, but anyway that is my outfit of the day, hope to guys liked this post and thanks for taking the time to read it x

The Summer Tag

Since summer's around the corner, I saw this tag and I was like, why not? Summer is definitely my favorite season (when it's not 150 degrees outside), so here I am about to tell you some of my favorite summer related things. This tag was originally created by makeup-pixi3

1.  What's your favourite thing about Summer?
My favorite thing about summer is definitely feeling free and having no school or work and just going out whenever you'd like.

2.  Do you have a favourite Summer drink?
My favorite drink is Lemonade all year long, so yes, lemonade.

3.  Is there a location you like to go to each Summer?
Probably to visit my dad since he works in another country, so that's what I do each summer.

4.  Favourite makeup look for Summer?
Honestly, I just go for mascara (which is a basic of mine), some colorful lipgloss, bronzer, and concealer to hide the imperfections. I like a minimal makeup look as an everyday routine.

5.  Dresses or skirts?
Skirts because you can always mix and match.

6.  Sandals or ballet pumps?
Ballet pumps. (I don't like showing off much of my feet)

7.  Do you prefer to wear your hair up or down for Summer?
Mostly down because it's fun, but if I'm running some errands then I wear it up.

8.  Deep smokey eyes or bold lips?
Definitely bold lips for me. 

9.  Favourite perfume for Summer?
I love the perfume Shock by Calvin Klein, it's such a nice fruity scent!

10.  Last but not least, favourite music for Summer?
Ahh this is probably the hardest question for me cause my favorite songs change probably everyday, but generally I like loud catchy songs. Thank God for SoundCloud though! (Check out my account here *wink* *wink*) 

So that's all for my summer tag, I hope you guys got to know me a bit better, and I hope you all have a nice, fun, unforgettable summer!

Batiste Dry Shampoo

Another review! Here's one thing that I've been loving lately and that is the Batiste Dry Shampoo in Seductive & Elegant Lace. You probably have heard about this dry shampoo somewhere before, because it's that good, and if you haven't I'm gonna tell you a bit about it now.

 On days were I have my hair done, I often wanna enjoy it for as long as I can without washing it (or it becoming greasy) so this dry shampoo gets the job done. Not only does it keep your head feeling fresh, but it also adds a tad of volume to your hair when it's flat. It's really easy to use too. You just spray it onto your hair and massage it into the roots. And the best thing is, it's affordable! Only $7.99 at Ulta.

So overall, this product has saved my life (and my hair)! What's your favorite dry shampoo?

Clean&Clear Gel Cleanser

I must say, my skincare products are my favorite products, that's only because I can't live without them (for real!)

My skin is a bit oily and is definitely acne-prone (unfortunately, that is...) and so I need to always wash it and keep it clean, or else my face is going to hate me. 

So this product right here, the Clean&Clear Deep Action Refreshing Gel Cleanser, is one of my holy grail items. It really is refreshing! I love using it on days where I have a full face of makeup on, it does a great job with cleaning my skin and it gives a great feeling of pure refreshment after that, no kidding! And as for the acne, I find that by it keeping my face clean, it keeps the acne away. You can't say no to that, can you?

This is why Clean&Clear is one of my most loved skincare companies!
