(Foundation) is easy as 1, 2, 3…

Bourjois 1.2.3. Perfect Foundation gives a flawless even complexion* for 16hrs, thanks to a new generation formula.

3 correcting pigments for zero imperfections:

Yellow pigments: Anti dark circles

  • 24hr hydration and anti-shine: cotton flower extract
  • SPF 10
  • Medium coverage, yet lets skin breathe
  • Soft and smooth formula for a second skin finish

I really don’t know what to write about this product because I am completely and utterly butterly discombobulated. I’m sure discombobulated is the right word, but if it isn’t… I’ll make sure to eat the Oxford English dictionary tomorrow and get back to you.

I expected more from this foundation is what I’m saying… When I first applied it as a swatch, I thought it was the hornet’s elbows not even bee’s knees. Then, when I applied it on my face (which is where foundation is usually applied), it looked ‘meh’. It just looked like the average foundation, kind of a letdown… I expected more from this foundation.

For a drugstore foundation, it’s fine, it’s just not in the same league of extraordinary gentlemen as the serum one… I wanted better coverage, especially seeing as I’ve got the ENTIRE population of Australia & New Zealand’s equivalent of spots on my face currently…

Yes, it made me look less tired and evens the skin tone, but… I still wasn’t blown away by it.

If you want a foundation that makes you look less tired and evens your skin tone, get it. But, if you want a foundation that lasts and looks good even without setting it with powder, this one is not for you.

Things I did like about it: it does hydrate the skin, I’m not going to lie. Protects skin against sun damage (SPF 10) and it applies/spreads easily.

Things I didn’t like about it: it’s less than medium coverage in my opinion. I don’t know, maybe it’s the fact that I’ve got what feels like the entire population of Spotville residing on my facial exterior, but I don’t think it covered very well… Then again, maybe it’s not meant to cover. It’s main USP is the skin tone evening and 24hour hydration which (I don’t know about the 24 hour part, but it does hydrate).

What I will say though, I know you should never compare when doing product reviews but Rimmel Wake Me Up is better in my opinion. Granted, the shade ranges of that are diabolical for a Lebanese Outer Hebrides Polar Bear Eskimo Person Thing like myself, but… Still. You’re either expected to be Donald Trump or TanMom if you’re to match with Rimmel Wake Me Up’s shades. No, thanks!

Have you tried it? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments section below or send me mail via pigeon. I LOVE pigeons (that are domesticated, clean, sanitary, cleanly fed, don’t carry rabies and aren’t flying rodents – Baesically: doves. I love doves.)

Here’s a post that’s similar to Netflix & Chill, except, you’ll waste money and it’s an un-terminatable contract for 12 months!

I like Netflix becuase it’s cheap and you can terminate it whenever, especially when there’s nothing to watch on the UK one, which is almost always.

Now, imagine paying £27.99 a month for an all-you-can-view cinema card from Odeon when I hardly have time to go to the cinema!

Advices: don’t do it (unless you can actually find time to go).

I tried cancelling it because I just realised after 8 months (enough to fully grow a foetus inside a womb) that I literally have not been to the cinema in almost 9 months! Happy premature birthday, you spicy AF individual/s.

Okay, enough of tangents (even if that’s the kinda, sorta best one), first of all, I had two out-of-service knees that kneeded bedrest for approximately 5 months… Then I went back to work.

So, the last film I actually saw in cinema was Wonder Woman and the time before that? Well, the time before that I’d seen Arrival. IMAGINE!

My advice? Don’t tie yourself down to the Limitless card (or similar) if you’re busy and don’t have a lot of free time to see films or else you’ll be wasting money.

However, it’s a very good initiative and works out incredibly cost effective if you’re a regular cinema goer.

I love cinemas, I love movies, I just geniunely don’t have the time, and I won’t make time to go and see something on my own – because I don’t want to be stuck in a room full of couplos doing their businesses. Crack on, lovers! 💕

Okay, so I need to write 300 words for SEO and I currently only have 231 so… Damn, 232 now. Oh, you see where this is going. Let me fill up some space with my favourite thing to fill up blog posts with… Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. FlamBAE. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. BAEoncé. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. Bae. BAE! BAE! BAE! BAEBAE! BAEBSTATION. BAE! BAE (don’t) LEAF!

Odeon & Chinchilla. I two bazillion percent want to chin on your chill and/or chill on your chin, either or… I’m not fussy. Your chin, my chill… Let’s make it happen.

When you are all ready to set the stage on fire with your ballet performance but the only thing missing is the perfect dress you visualised yourself to be wearing. It can be an addition to this frustration if all the local ballet stores just do not have the type of dress you want. To avoid all this confusion, it is a great idea to look for the dress you want on an online ballet store. An online ballet store has a wide variety of designs and styles available as it is functioning on a large scale. For people who have never shopped for ballet clothes online, it may seem to be a little confusing, but in reality, it is extremely simple.

Online Ballet Store

Here are a few tips for beginners to get a perfect outfit from an online ballet store:

  • Ensure that you are up to date with your measurements: You need to know your body measurements accurately. In a local store, you can just try on an outfit and decide the fitting size. But that would not be possible in an online store. So, you will have to take the help of your measurements and the size chart to determine the size of your required outfit. As you may already be aware that the sizing of various manufacturers may vary, do not neglect the size chart. Always compare the size chart provided on the website of the online ballet store and only then place the final order. If you place an order for the wrong size, the outfit may fail to fit as required.
  • Read the details of the outfit: Do not get lured by the pictures of the outfit. Read all the details of the material provided along with it. The outfits may appear attractive in the pictures but may not be of the cloth material that you require. So never get carried away just by the pictures. Also look for all the other details you may require.

  • Do not shy away from asking questions: Just like a local store, an online ballet store has several representatives available to solve your queries about their products. So, if you have any questions of the features of any outfit, ask them straight away. They will help you out and thus, you can have a happy shopping experience.
  • Go through the customer reviews and research materials: Ensure that you go through the customer reviews of the product. This is a feature that is not available in local stores. So why not take advantage of it? Look at the reviews to determine how satisfied the customers who have already bought it are. This will give you a clear idea of the quality of the outfit. Also, look into the type of material. It would be really frustrating to receive a dress that looks amazing but feels like sandpaper on your skin. As you are unable to touch the fabric and distinguish the texture of the outfit by looking at the pictures on an online ballet store, it would be advisable to familiarise yourself the fabric content before hitting the buy now button.

 With these tips, you are all set to buy your perfect new ballet outfit from an online ballet store. All you need to take care of is the date of delivery of the product. As it is an online store, it may take a little time for the item reaching you after you have ordered it. So, make sure you do not procrastinate on the buying process and treat it as a priority instead. Make sure you look into the return policies on the online ballet store and schedule your purchase with a margin of a few days before the performance.

I’ve got that Friday feeling… When I get that feeling, I spend my time watching some of my favourite YouTubers or video bloggers.

So, this blog post is going to be crackalackin’ in written content but oozin’ boozin’ with visuals!

  1. Sara Asiya

2) Jenna Marbles

As you can tell from the videos above, the main thing I look for in YouTubers is humour. Humour is everything…

If I’m not watching Sara Asiya and Jenna Marbles on YouTube, I’m watching TV and/or marathons of the shows (online). I have to admit that I’m impatient when it comes to programmes… I literally cannot wait for some of my favourites to make it across the pond that I watch them on SockShare as soon as they get streamed.

Do I watch Netflix? Not really… I don’t watch anything Netflix-related because it’s more so a couple-y thing to do…  I suppose you could say that I have an account for – again – no reason whatsoever; and that I’ve subscribed to it for no reason. 🙈 I mean, if programmes I actually wanted to watch were streamed on the UK one, I might dedicate more time to it.
