His Royal Highness, he makes a DAMN good King… 😍

If you’re not a King, you’re probably a Queen and… AMSTAR-TING to get REALLY get back into this blog postage (& packaging).

Aloha!

I’m Bach with a post about Victoria’s most Secret venture… Fragrances. Everyone who shops at VS, shops lingerie. I don’t know many who know VS for its other stock. Firstly, its PJ (not Peanut & Jelly) selection is SOMETHING ELSE!

Alas, I’m not here to discuss this… I’m here to talk fragrance. Especially her limited-edition ‘Golden Bloom’.

Get wrapped up in limited-edition sexy-warm scents, with notes of cozy gourmand, winter woods and dark ripe fruits.

  • Golden Bloom: Warm, with warm apple and tiger orchid

  • Velvet Petals: Warm, with sweet almond glaze and creamy sandalwood

  • Dark Flora: Warm, with pomegranate and sugared woods

  • Midnight Ivy: Warm, with rum raisins and amber woods

I love perfume, but- I’m the hardest (or easiest) to please because I love both fruity and floral scents.

I can never choose. I like them all, end up choosing one, and then regret my choice. So, imagine my QUELLE SURPRISE! when I discovered that VS (the FULL ON FLAMBAE OF THE RETAIL MARKET) sells a fruit & floral hybrid body mist?! Mate. Mateo. Mattise. Matrimony. Mattress. Metamorphic rock. Igneous.

That’s another thing (that has absolutely nothing to do with sedimentary)… I’m not even going to pretend that I didn’t USE TO have the tendency to overspray myself to the point where your nostrils could tell I was on my way from the Arctic (if you’re based in Australia). With “Golden Bloom”, this is no longer an issue.

That’s right, it’s a very soft and subtle scent. I’d like to say it smells like flowers and coconut. It’s honestly the most exotic thing I’ve ever smelled/smelt/s’mores. I love it.

Oh, let’s get on to my other favourite part about this… The packaging. Two trillion percent (by the time I’m 80) I’ll have the bottle’s design tattooed all over my body. My aim is to look like the Garden of Eden before I (hopefully) go there, God willing!

Okay, back to the scent itself… VS describes it as a “sexy” “forest” smell… Now, I don’t know how long you’ve been keeping up with this blog for (if you keep up with it at all), but I LOVE FORESTS!

I mean, I’d never go into one now… But, I just love the idea of them. Knowing that there’s a place where there are SO MANY TREES makes me so happy (them being cut down NOT AT ALL).

I also love what I imagine forests to smell like… Like a woodland. Oak. Fresh air. Squirrel poop. Deer wee. EVERYTHING. (probably not the two latter things before “EVERYTHING”).

Let’s take things back to VS’ description… I have to say that I didn’t really get the whole “forest” thing… Because, what forest has VS been to that smells like coconuts? Then again, I’m not a connoMansour of forests. Green houses/rooms, maybe. Forests? Not so much

In a nutshell, put Golden Bloom around your nostrils when you get the chance. You might like it. If you don’t, sorry.

I don’t usually do this and get no enjoyment out of it but: if you’re one of the 0.00000000000000000000000000001% that would like to rant about my content and how “I need to learn to distinguish truth from fiction”, email: complaint@MiamiiGivesADiarrhea.NOT

I don’t like ending (or anything-ing) with negativity, so… *watches something hysterical on YouTube/TV/streams it online* I feel like everybody should do the same. If everyone followed suit, there’d be less animosity.

MaybellineHolla at your spice rack in the kitchen!

or…

‘Hola cómo estás?!’ (as it translates in SEXY LANGUAGES)

Today marks the time that I officially get back into the swing of blogging… I have been sporadic with my postings of late, and I’m sorry. Blogging really is like therapy, so I have no real reason why I’ve left this blog dormant, but I’ve been busy with work.

Anyway, so – what better way to get back into blogging than to discuss my current fave lip product. Introducing: Maybelline’s SuperStay Matte Ink.

Ink with Attitude.  Maybelline introduces SuperStay Matte Ink, an intense ink colour concentration, ultra-chic matte finish and flawless, 12 hour wear. With a precise arrow applicator for a smooth matte, second-skin effect in just one stroke. Statement, inked lips that last.

Maybe it’s… THE BEST THING YOU COULD EVER PUT ON YOUR LIPS! (Seriously)

I’m obsessed with not just the formula (which does not dry my lips out at all) but the shade (it’s bold AF) and packaging too. Alicia Keys weren’t alying when she said New York is where “dreams” “are made”. Full-on: YES! OUI! JA! OKAY! I’m actually infatuated with this. It’s slightly strange. Like, it’s only matte lipstick – but it’s SO GOOD and so underrated (in my opinion).

Seriously, I know I keep saying this but it’s so good. If you’re looking to try a new pink shade, and are very into matte-liquid lipsticks, do yourself a favour and invest in this, pronto.

It not only mattifies the lips but smoothens/soothes them. You know those disgusting chapped marks that some matte lipsticks leave? You get none of that with this. It’s honestly the best lip stain I have ever used. The shade, in particular, is also very flattering.

12-hour stay verdict: I’m not going to keep lipstick on my face for 12 hours to test this theory… No offences. I highly regard hygiene. So, I wash my faeces (hahahahahahahahahhahahahahaha, this word makes me laugh so hard for no reason) when I get home. However, what I can say is that it stays put. It didn’t fade easily after drinking or eating.

Other things that I love about Maybelline’s SuperStay Matte Ink: it comes off very easily but doesn’t (to my knowledge) smudge. The applicator is pretty special as well, it’s so easy to use and applies swiftly (with one coat #anorak).

This Lip Ink is just everything. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the shade I picked up is called “Lover” and I LOVER it. It’s like a nude pink/purple – unless I’m colourblind and it’s like BRIGHT ORANGE, in which case: YES! JUST: OUI!

Put it in your basket instantaneously and don’t worry about the rest… Is I in fact going to buy all the other shadeses? OUI. JA. YES. OKAY.

Thanks,

Miamiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Hey guys & dolls,

This is a quick post to get my virtual pal Niamh some help on her university assignment. I think it’s really cool and am trying to help out as much as possible.

She’s studying at University and has to create her own project, she’s decided to create a forum for fellow young school kid bloggers that are just starting out to connect and speak out about stuff that might be troubling them… So, in essence, you’ll be like a sort of mentor.

 

I think it’s this is a great idea. Bullying is real, but can in some cases be escaped from, whereas cyber-bullying remains forever. No matter how many people you block, the sad reality is, the comments always stay there. It’s stupid. We should all learn to get along or just leave each other alone. There is no room for being hurtful. You never know how a sentence you say might damage someone, so it’s best if you don’t say anything at all. Be nice or don’t say anything. Simple. It’s not hard.

Anyway, doom and gloom aside, it’s a great cause for positive reasons outside of getting help on bullying, it’s also a great place for young novice bloggers to meet and network with other bloggers who are a little bit more experienced and understand the field a bit better. Yes, the blogging world is always changing, but there are certain themes that always stay the same. Giving novice bloggers a stepping stone or a helping hand, the way we should’ve been when we first started, is so rewarding!

Do you want to be a mentor and help Niamh out? Follow her on Twitter @Niamhyyy99 or check out her blog here. Alternatively, email her directly on: grabacuppanm@hotmail.com.

From what I understand, she needs a couple more mentors and also some 12-14 year old bloggers to take part in the forum itself. If you fit either bills, drop her a line. Oh, and – stay classy. We need to come together, not tear each other down.

I wanted to finish by giving major kudos to Niamh herself. This is such a great idea.

I know it’s only virtual, but Niamh is honestly such a lovely little blogger who shows a lot of promise. She’s got a bright future ahead of her!

Her idea to set up this little forum is such a sweet gesture and is sure to be a huge success.

The youngsters of the internet need more support than any of us. If we support them and nurture them, they’ll go on to do great things… But, if we leave them to  endure the wrath of stupid people who have no life outside of belittling and acting like hungry, mentally/physically frustrated keyboard warriors, we take away any chance of that.

Help. Always. In all the ways. Whether it’s reporting or blocking an account or telling an adult, do your bit where you can.

Don’t let those being trolled suffer by just reading the thread and watching it unfold. If all you’re doing is watching/reading, you’ve played a part in it. Remember that.

Love,

Miamii

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.
