Look your best with Shapellx

July 01, 2022 0 Comments

Hello everyone!


Today I'm back with another fashion-related post. Anyone who loves clothes and fashion knows the secret to a perfect fit is wearing the perfect undergarments. I'm sure many of you have noticed that shapewear is significantly rising in popularity. Indeed for many years, shapewear had a reputation for being uncomfortable and even somewhat painful. Nowadays, shapewear has evolved into fairly pleasant garments that can be worn all day. For today's post, I'm collaborating with Shapellx to tell you everything you need to know about shapewear and show you some items I'm sure you'll love.


Shapellx's shapewear will help you feel confident, sexy, and gorgeous no matter your dress size or how much you weigh. There's a good reason why most celebrities wear shapewear; they want to feel and look their best, and we all deserve that!


Many women, myself included, believe that certain clothes don't look good on us. However, these insecurities seem to fade away when wearing the right shapewear. Wearing shapewear highlighting our best features can be a huge confidence boost! Sometimes all we need is a good waist trainer for women. Waist trainers can also improve posture and give you an instant hourglass figure.


Shapellx is a size-inclusive brand which offers body shapers for women of all sizes. If you are looking for a plus size waist trainer or body shaper, look no further. On their website, you will find undergarments with various compression levels, that will sculpt and contour your body.  


For example, the item below is the perfect waist trainer to boost your workouts while still feeling supported.

I love Shapellx's full body shapers. Some of their full-body shapers look like traditional shapewear, while others look like sexy lingerie. Below are two of my favourite bodysuits. I think they are simply gorgeous!

The first is a black lace bodysuit that smooths and lifts the stomach, bum, waist, and back.

It's available in sizes S to 3XL

The second bodysuit is the perfect undergarment to wear under strapless and backless outfits. Like the other bodysuit, this one is available in sizes S to 3XL. It comes in two colours; black and beige.


AirSlim® Backless U Plunge Thong Bodysuit

What is the best season to get pierced?

June 22, 2022 0 Comments

Hello everyone!


Summer has finally arrived, and this is the perfect time to show off a new ear or body piercing, especially since probably your clothes won’t be hiding it. Lucky, every time I post a piercing-related article on this blog, you seem to like it, which is great; because I love writing about this topic. In this post, I want to talk to you about when to get pierced. Is there a better season to get a piercing? Keep reading to find out!

When is the perfect time to get pierced? What are the seasonal pros and cons to consider before going through with a piercing? Whether you choose to get your piercing during the hot summer months or the cooler winter once depends primarily on your lifestyle.


After your piercing, you can expect a 25-60% chance of slight swelling within the first 3 days. Circulation will increase, and blood will rush to the area. Areas with better blood circulation, such as earlobes, lips, nose and nipples, may experience up to 60% chance of swelling. 


During the warmer seasons, the steady blood flow to the pierced area increases, which can even speed up the healing process and flush away toxins on the skin. Remember that most piercings take around 6-8 weeks to heal. Most people want to head to the beach or pool for a swim but keeping the pierced area clean and dry (during the healing process) is vital. Therefore, getting your piercing in the springtime will allow enough healing time to show it off in the summertime!

During the colder seasons, certain areas like the ears and nose experience reduced blood flow due to the cold. However, less blood flow also means less possibility of swelling. When you get a new piercing, it’s best not to touch it to allow it to heal. One of the many benefits of getting a new piercing in the wintertime is that wearing layers of clothes will help prevent you from touching a new piercing. Still, you should be mindful of what winter clothes you wear; you want to avoid clothing that will catch on your piercing or rub against it.


As long as you follow the piercing aftercare, you can get a new piercing whenever is most convenient for you. 


I hope you found this post helpful. Are you planning any new piercings in the near future? Let me know in the comment section below!


Talk to you soon...

Holiday gift ideas for your dogs

November 29, 2021 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

Since the holiday season has officially started, I want to share a few gift ideas with you. This year, I'm starting with holiday gift ideas for your dogs!

I always buy Christmas presents for Rascal and, I know that the majority of dog guardians (I don't like the word owners) do the same for their pets.

Rascal - Christmas 2020

I always dress Rascal in cosy sweaters during the colder months, so a warm outfit is always number one on my list! Dogs can get cold, just like us! Small dogs, as well as dogs with short coats, feel the cold more sharply than larger dogs or breeds with thick coats. These dogs may need a sweater or coat when outside for extended periods during the winter.

Collars and accessories are a perfect gift for dogs that do not need or want to wear clothes.

Toys and treats are always good gift ideas that your furry friends will surely enjoy.

These are just a few gift ideas I wanted to share with you today. If you have pets, let me know if you buy them Christmas/holiday gifts?

The best earrings for your face shape

September 29, 2021 2 Comments

Hello everyone!


Knowing your face shape can be helpful when choosing your hairstyle, makeup, eyebrow shape, glasses and even earring style. A long time ago, I shared a quiz to help you determine which face shape you have. In previous posts, I talked about the best eyebrows for your face shape and the best sunglasses for your face shape. Today, I want to share some tips on how to choose the best earring that will flatter and define your features.


It is important to choose earrings that complement your natural beauty rather than choosing ones that are 'in style'. A simple trick is to pick the earrings that are opposite to your face shape. Keep reading to see what I mean by this.

Round face

Drop earrings and long dangles look stunning on you, as long earrings will help to elongate your face. Earrings with a sleek and long build are your best choice.


Square face

Round earrings, such are hoops, are your best choice. Earrings with rounded edges are a great choice because they bring attention to your earrings and help soften your face’s natural angles.


Heart-shaped face

To balance your natural face shape, try earrings that are wider at the bottom than at the top. Earrings with soft curves such as teardrop styles balance out the face and draw attention to the eyes, cheekbones and jawline.


Diamond face

Earrings that balance your natural features are ones that are more wide than long. A combination of curves and straight lines are also flattering, as are earrings with delicate drops.


Narrow face

For you, chunky earrings work well. Short dangles are also flattering to narrow faces. Dangling earrings with elongated curves will highlight the cheekbones and soften your appearance.


Oval face

People with an oval face shape are considered the luckiest. Oval faces have incredible versatility in what they can wear, so have fun experimenting; you can wear any style you like!

How to style uneven earlobe piercings

September 20, 2021 1 Comments

Hello everyone!


As you can see from the current most popular posts in the sidebar, piercing-related articles are well-liked on this blog.


Today I want to talk to you about an unfortunate situation; that sadly is not that uncommon! Uneven piercings occur when one ear is pierced slightly higher or off to one side from the other. When this happens, the only way to correct the problem is to have one of your lobes re-pierced to match the other. First, the earrings must be removed, and the piercing must close before you can pierce it again. Healing generally takes six to eight weeks.


If a person only has one set of earlobe piercings, the best thing to do is getting one or both ears re-pierced. However, if the unevenness happens with a second or third set of lobe piercings, there can be other options.


If getting them re-pierced isn't an option for you, and you do not want any more piercings, your best option is mixing and matching your earrings. Having different shapes and sizes across your lobes could help offset the placement discrepancy. Furthermore, mismatched earrings are very trendy at the moment.

My lobes are pierced this way intentionally. I prefer an asymmetrical look!

As you can see, when wearing the same jewellery on both ears, the unevenness is much more noticeable.


Alternatively, if you are open to the idea of adding more ear piercings, you could try a constellation piercing. This will make the uneven piercing look intentional. Constellation piercings are multiple piercings that are placed to create unique patterns that are reminiscent of star constellations in the sky. While constellation piercings can come about accidentally or by fixing an ill-placed piercing, they can also be deliberate.


If you are searching for an edgier option, you could also add another piercing to create an orbital! An orbital piercing is a combination of two ear piercings connected by one piece of jewellery, generally a hoop.


Remember, when getting a piercing, always check the marks in a mirror before approving the piercing.

Autumn (Fall) 2021 nail colour trends + NOTD: Green with envy

September 10, 2021 1 Comments

 Hello everyone!


Autumn/Fall is only a few days away and, with the new season come new nail polish colour trends.   In today's post, I will share my favourite colours for the coming season!



Let me start with one of my favourite nail colour trends;


  • Green

Green nail polishes are becoming very popular in every shade you can think of - from olive and sage to hunter green and jade.

Since this is the nail colour I am wearing right now, I'm adding a "nails of the day" (NOTD) post in this article.  Back when I started this blog, I used to publish these types of posts quite regularly.

  • Deep nude

Nude colours have an elegant and clean look.  Selecting a slightly deeper tone is a great way to update your look for the new season.


  • Deep red

Reds and burgundies are traditional autumn and winter colours but hugely popular this year, nonetheless. 


  • Brown

From chocolate brown, tan, or taupe, there are various shades of brown you can choose from. 


  • Mix and match

When you cannot decide which autumn nail polish shade you want, you can always wear a different colour on each nail. 



What is your favourite nail polish colour?  Leave a comment and let me know!


Have a great weekend!
