THEWEEKENDPOST: FAMILY BRUNCH.



This Sunday morning we decided to go for a brunch feast in one of our favorite places in Tangier called PRESTIGE GARDEN. It's a quite place, the food is divine and the staff is lovely. what I enjoy there is the vintage cinema posts all over the walls and the classic equipments. I had an orange juice, a cappuccino ( I had to restrict myself and remove the whip cream ), some pancakes with low fat cheese. The rest of the family of course enjoyed les croques monsieur (on the picture ! ).
On my face in the picture, I'm wearing my make up routine from the Acne Series which you can find here . My outfit was a casual baby pink sweater from Zara, some black leggings also from Zara, silver heart necklace and earings (Bf gift).

Love,
Omaïma.

SEVERE ACNE SERIES: WHEN WEARING MAKE UP.



I understand that it's hard sometimes to go out bared skin and face the outside world, especially if you have serious Acne. It does need courage and knowing what's best for you. If Make up makes you more confident and comfortable, I really don't see why not wearing it !

The main thing though is when having severe acne and being on medication, we have to be very Careful about What products we use and How we use them ..

Since I went on medication I haven't been wearing make up everyday but when I do, I follow this routine :

Hands On : LABELLO LIP BALMS.



I've been using LABELLO lip butters for years now. Having most of the shades definitely means that I really like them. The brand offers several collections ( Basic care, Extra care and Color&Shine). Since they come on a tube, the application is easier than the ones that come on a pot. You can throw them in your make up bag to use during the day.

SEVERE ACNE SERIES : SKINCARE ESSENTIALS.



I decided to make a blog post serie dedicated to Severe Acne. It's mainly adressed to those on Serious Acne Medication. Now, bare in mind that I'm not by any means a skin expert ! These are just some tips that work for me and great  recommandations from my Dermathologist . The best peace of advice I can give you if you're struggling with Acne is to see a Dermathologist because everyone's skin and Acne Type is diffrent.

To give you a quick history of my skin, I've had breakouts in my early teenage years. To deal with it, I used drugstore products but nothing seemed to work for me. Later on, I discoverd that it was actually Acne.

Islam's seeks to grow her business and I'm helping her along this journey.

TheBookReview: The fault in our stars




I decided to make a review about TFIOS, but where and how to begin.. I'm massively confused so let me just give you first an introduction to the story in case you somehow strangely have never heard of it.

(no spoilers included / shared on Goodreads)
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

What's in My Bag: City Edition. ( Longchamp Le Pliage Medium Tote Bag )



Today I'm sharing with you what I carry arround in my medium sized bag. Generally, when I'm going out in the city shopping or with friends. 
I use  the LONGCHAMP Le Pliage Medium Tote Bag in All Black. I really like this bag, it's the perfect size bag and you can fit so much stuff in , I even sometimes use it for school days ! plus, it's all black, stripes included ! ( I guess it was part of a limited edition ) . The material is durable and easy to clean. The less positive thing though is that it can wear out easily in the bottom corners which is no fun.

Moving to what's inside, as you can notice in the picture above, I try to keep it minimum by just having  the essentials. I carry my mini bright pink coin purse that I got from Claire's. My Sunglasses from EGO which I had for two years now and that I still adore. A notebook where I jot down lists and ideas on the go.

Hands On : CLAIRE'S NAIL POLISH.





Today we're going to be Talking Nail Polish ! Lately I've tried some of The CLAIRE'S nail polishes and to be honest I was quite pleased.

The First one in "Light Coral", whish is from their standard collection.  The color is basically a light nudy corally shade. The formula is good, it is a nice consistency, it is a little sheer but it built up easily and it gives a glossy finish. I used 2 coats in the photo above.

My Everyday Makeup Routine.



What a better way to start a beauty blog than sharing with you guys my Everyday Makeup Routine. It says a lot about a girl, doesn't it ?

Starting with a freshly cleansed face, I apply an SPF to protect  my skin against UVB. I use the SKINNING SPF 50 with whitening properties which acts like a great base for make up without leaving that vampirish white film on your face. I then follow with a medium coverage foundation by Maybelline called FIT ME  in the shade 125 that I apply it with my ELF powder brush . 
To correct my any redness or discoloration on the face, I use the COVERSTICK by Essence in the shade Matt Honey . I also use it as a concealer for under the eyes. I then set everything with my trusty Maybelline DREAM MATTE powder in Honey.
