3 Things I Really Dislike About Paris

I've been to Paris not once, not twice but 3 times now and I'd like to think I know the city well enough by now. First two times I visited it was during a rather cold wet winter season. This time round, Paris in July was a very last-minute trip for us. My family was visiting from Brazil for my brother's wedding and my 14-year old cousin begged us to take her to Disneyland given they were already halfway across the globe and Paris was just "there", as she put it. With her 15th birthday coming up, I decided to grant her wish as an early birthday present so we all went. Spending 3 days in Paris reminded me of the things I love about this city but it also highlighted things I did not quite enjoy (to put it lightly). We often read "What you must see in Paris" articles but well, here are a few things no one is talking about enough.

Coral Bridesmaid Outfit: What I Wore To My Brother's Wedding

You've read that right. My little brother who I swear just graduated from university has gotten married. It all happened in the beautiful (albeit too hot) town of Elvas, Portugal a couple of weeks ago. The weather forecast for the day: 38 degrees celsius, the task: to find a bridesmaid worthy outfit that wouldn't suffocate me or give me heatstroke. Glad to report it all ended well and I thought I'd share some shots from the outfit I wore and details about each piece, especially because they were all amazing finds!

It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year: Christmas at Covent Garden

I honestly cannot believe we're less than a month away from Christmas. I'll spare you from the cliché comments like "where has the year gone", "time has flown by", etc, etc. Instead, today I wanted to share a little bit about the lovely day I had with the husband in central London this past weekend. I honestly cannot remember the last time we had gone into London for the weekend (we've clearly become far too lazy after we got married) but determined to make Christmas last as long as possible, I proposed and planned a day to see the sights, enjoy some of the Christmas spirit the city already has to offer and have a great meal out. I can anticipate that all things were successfully accomplished and if you want to see what our day looked like, then keep on reading!

Trying Cult Beauty Brands For The First Time: Huda Beauty

I recently started a new series on the blog, Trying Cult Beauty Brands For The First Time and you all seemed to really enjoyed it so here I am back with another. Read the first instalment here where I talk about a few products from the Balm and Beauty Blender, two amazing brands I now understand what the hype is about. Today, I wanted to try my very first eyeshadow palette from the brand Huda Beauty and see whether I've been missing out or not (spoiler alert, I have!). I'm sure you've heard of it before but in case you've been living under a rock for the past 2 years or so, beauty sensation Huda Kattan launched an eponymous range of award-winning beauty products and has quickly become a global phenomenon. Ranging from all things make-up to skincare and even fragrances, Huda Beauty brings some of the best eyeshadows in the market, trendy lip kits, amazing falsies and is now dipping its toes in base products too like its fairly recently released foundation and concealer, both of which I have on my wishlist. To commence this new beauty journey for me and given my brother was in Portugal where there is a Sephora in every corner, I asked him to pick me up possibly one of the most sold products the range has, a mini obsessions palette, more specifically the Mauve Obsessions palette. Read on to see what I think about it!
