Hello everyone!

Welcome to my new post.  I hope you are all safe and well.  I can't wait to go back to normality, but I’m trying to make the best of it.  These days I decided to be productive, so I’m writing more frequently.

As you all know, summer is almost here and for most of us, this means that it is time to find some new fashionable items.  Since the situation is still not currently “back to normal”, I don’t feel comfortable going in stores to do my shopping.  That is why I'm always searching for new interesting online stores that I can share with you.  If you enjoy online shopping, like I do, I’m sure you’ll like today’s blog post.  Today I want to talk about a new online store I recently discovered, called HexinFashion.  

HexinFashion offers a large variety of trendy clothes for each and every occasion.  They sell everything from dresses, sportswear, plus-size clothing, lingerie, swimwear and shapewear for women, such as thigh and waist trainers.  

I picked out my favourite items from the store, just for you! 

The site offers a vast selection of sexy bandage dresses.  I absolutely adore these two dresses, check them out.  Click on each picture to see the item on the website

HexinFashion also has a variety of swimwear, such as these cheap tankinis, perfect for the upcoming hot summer months.  These two tankinis are simply chic and ultra-flattering.  The high waisted ruched bikini bottom has a tummy control effect and the top covers your belly and makes you look slimmer!  Check them out:

Shhh... It's a beauty secret! #04 | The best facial cleanser EVER!

May 21, 2020 1 Comments
Hello everyone!

Today I want to share my number one secret for moisturised, plump, soft, and glowing skin.  It's neither a fancy face cream nor one of my usual DIY recipes.  It's actually something I never thought I'd use on my face at all. 

Shhh... It's a beauty secret!

Years ago I wrote about the many benefits of vegetable glycerin in a post titled: Vegetable glycerin for glowing skin! and I also shared a recipe for a DIY make-up setting spray containing glycerin as a key ingredient.  I've also been using glycerin soap on and off in the shower for quite some time but I never used it to wash my face with, until recently.  

I had a new, unopened jasmine glycerin soap in my bathroom and since my face was a little dry I decided, on a hunch, to try the soap as a face cleanser.  I used it at night before I went to sleep and let me tell you I was shocked at how soft and hydrated my skin was after just one use.  The next morning my face was visibly plumper and my skin was glowing, so I decided I should keep using it to see if the result were consistent.

Now, as you can see from the pictures below, I've been using the soap for a few weeks and I absolutely love it.  This is by far the best face cleanser I've ever used, and let me tell you, I used quite a few high-end, very expensive products in the past.

So what is glycerin soap and why is it so effective? 

Glycerin soap is a soap that contains glycerin.  Vegetable glycerin is an odourless, clear liquid with a thick syrup consistency.  It is added to beauty products because of its ability to attract moisture and act as an emollient.  Glycerin soaps are recognisably different from other soaps because they are translucent.

Vegetable glycerin soap is vegan-friendly and a great option for people with sensitive skin.  Glycerin can help lock in the skin’s natural moisture and prevent over-drying.  This may be especially beneficial for people who experience conditions like:

  • acne
  • eczema
  • dermatitis
  • dry skin
  • psoriasis
  • rosacea

At the same time, glycerin is non-greasy.  This means it’s a good choice for anyone with oily or combination skin.  Glycerin may also have anti-ageing benefits.  It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and other surface blemishes.

Glycerin soap is not just a cleanser, it's a beauty treatment!  I'm turning 35 next week (on May 30th), and since glycerin soap has incredible benefits for ageing skin, I’m confident it will remain a staple in my beauty routine in the coming years.

Have you ever used glycerin soap?  Would you consider using it now that you know a little bit more about it?  Leave a comment and let me know!

New ear piercing and future piercings? 👂

May 15, 2020 2 Comments
Hello everyone!

A little over two years ago I published a post titled "All about my piercings" in which I shared my ear piercing experience.  This past January I added another ear piercing but by the time it healed Covid-19 had spread and I forgot to write about it in my blog.  The "new" piercing I had done is nothing special, in fact, it's the most common piercing ever.  

I added a second lobe piercing in my left ear.  Lobe piercing tends to be an almost universally accepted body modification.  This piercing has a relatively quick healing time of 6 to 8 weeks.  Many people have second lobe piercings and most people choose to have a matching pair.  Well, not me!  

I'm not a fan of symmetrical ear-piercing placements.  As I told you in the above-mentioned post, I have a standard lobe and a high lobe/auricle piercing in my right ear.  However, I chose to have a standard lobe and a second lobe piercing in my left ear.  I also have a tragus piercing in my left ear.

Here's what they look like... 👀 👇

Do I have any plans for future piercings?  Actually, I would like to add two more.  A flat/outer conch piercing in my right ear and a helix piercing in my left ear.  The outer conch is the flat piece of the ear between the helix and the antihelix, aka the "flat".  I would wear a tiny stud in the flat and a hoop in the helix.  Those piercings would look something like this... 👇

I feel like these two ear piercings would complete my look!  What do you think?

Femme Luxe 👚 👖 👗 | Haul & Review

May 13, 2020 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

Today’s post is in collaboration with Femme Luxe; a UK-based women’s clothing store. 
If they are a new brand to you as they were to me, Femme Luxe has a huge selection of on-trend pieces from dresses to loungewear sets available from their website.  Their pieces definitely have a feminine and luxe edge to them.  Even if you are just looking at their casual loungewear sets, there’s always a touch of glam, which I love.

Let’s start with the first item in today’s haul, the Black Cargo Slim Fit Trouser - Sunny

When browsing through the trousers section, these Black Cargo Slim Fit Trousers featuring multiple pockets and elasticated ankle cuffs immediately caught my eye.  They fit perfectly and are very comfortable to wear. These trousers are a very versatile item to have in your wardrobe; you can either dress them down by styling them with trainers or dress them up by styling them with heels.

I’m obsessed with this Black Mesh Floral Sleeve Bodycon Mini Dress.  When I saw this mini dress I was instantly love-struck.  This is my absolute favourite item out of the five I ordered.  When I wear this beautiful dress I feel like I’m channelling my inner Katy Keene!  Lucy Hale in Katy Keene often wears short dresses with big puffy sleeves.  I feel like her character would totally wear something like this.  It has a luxe floral design sheer mesh cuffed sleeve, this gorgeous bodycon mini dress is ideal for date night.  Pair it with high heels for a killer look.

As the weather has been heating up I love to wear dresses which certainly have to be on-trend, light and colourful.  This Royal Blue Ruched Cowl Neck Bodycon Mini Dress checks all the boxes.  The colour of this dress is absolutely breathtaking!  When I saw this slinky ruched fabric midi dress  I feared it would be too revelling on me, but fortunately, it is not.

This has to be one of my favourite outfits from this haul.  Like I said before about the Cargo Slim Fit Trousers, this Camel Off-Shoulder Loungewear Set is also a very versatile outfit. This perfect matching co-ord loungewear set, including soft cuffed joggers with a drawstring waist and a cropped matching off the shoulder top.  It is definitely the perfect outfit to chill and relax at home.  You can pair this loungewear set with some comfy trainers for a daytime look or put on some heels for a laidback evening out with friends.  


The fifth and last item in today’s haul is the Beige One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress - Savannah

This next item; the Beige One Shoulder Ruched Slinky Midi Dress is a must-have occasion dress.  With the in-demand one-shoulder design and hot trending slinky ruched fabric, this sultry midi dress is a total essential in my wardrobe update.  Being complete with a belted waist, this figure-hugging calf-length dress is ideal for all events; from a night out with friends, to date night and it even makes the perfect wedding guest outfit.  Pair this affordable midi up with some high heels to finish the look.

I am very satisfied with my order because, unlike other online brands, what you see in the picture is what you get.  There's nothing that I hate more than when you order something online and what you actually receive is something completely different or a flimsy version of it!  This is definitely not the case with Femme Luxe.  I was also impressed with how quickly my parcel arrived.  It was delivered to my home just a week after I ordered!  Usually, other stores take twice as long to deliver to Malta.

And that is the end of my Femme Luxe haul and review.  Check out their website, even if it’s just for some inspiration.  But I sincerely do recommend you order some glamorous and yet, affordable pieces.  You will not be disappointed!

Which is your favourite outfit out of all of them?  Leave a comment below and let me know! 

Although this clothing was kindly gifted to me by Femme Luxe, all the opinions are truthful and my own.
