My Favorite Blushes Right Now

This is kind of a more abstract and real time blogpost than my usual posts but i thought "Im supposed to be telling people what I like so why not tell them which my go-to-blushes are and then they can go try them out as well and get obsessed with those blushes. Then we can all share our obsession with blushes and have a happy blushing time :p ". Yes, i ramble on and on about random things like this in my head. New readers may not know this but I am very pale, hence blushes are like my best friends that add color to my face. Now about the blushes i have been obsessing over for about a month now:
Spring Flower and Posietint
  1. Posietint by Benefit :(Haul post) Described as a "poppy-pink" shade, I do like it much more than Benetint (which is more rose-tinted). It's the perfect shade to wear everyday and looks especially great on days when you don't feel like using any foundation because it blends right into your skin. Posietint adds a subtle glowy element to the whole look. However, when I tried using it over foundation, it led a patchy, streaky look. It's a staple for days when i don't have the time to put on much makeup (like foundation, concealer, bronzer,etc.). he only bad side to this product is that it leaves a stubborn stain on the fingers that you may use to blend it in :( . Now I couldn't click a picture of myself with Posietint on because its so light and natural that it just wouldn't show up in pictures!
  2. Spring Flower by Rimmel London : This is a simple and straight forward pink.  No coral tones, No orange tones and No Plum tones - none of that fuss in this one. It does have a bit of shimmer but the shimmer is so subtle that you can use it as a daily blush and nobody will notice it. It's too pink to use as a Fall shade which makes me use it even more while i still can! Go get it and try it before its time to use those plum shades!

Fashion Union Wish List

This is a very special post you see. For those of you who regularly read my blog posts ( or even those that may have glanced at the archive) or follow me on Twitter, you may know that I have been doing a series called the "Wish List" series where i list a bunch of things that I wish i had and that I would get given the first opportunity. Fortunately, I've got something even more exciting for this Wishlist post! Fashion Union ( through the etailPR network) has give me that opportunity to write a wish list of all the products I like from their website : . Honestly, once I got on their website I couldn't stop staring at all the amazing clothes and accessories they have on sale! Their collection is wonderful and has such a broad spectrum that you'll always find what you're looking for. Now since they have such a wide range of products i decided to categorize them. 

First off we have dresses. Dresses are always the first thing i look at on any new shopping site. 
  1. The Blue Cut Out Skater Dress : This one is my favorite! At £10.00 (reduced from £28.00 ) its a steal. The dress could be easily dressed up or dressed down and is the perfect blend of elegant and yet cute. You can find it here 

  2.  Wine Scallop Hem Strappy Ponte Bodycon Dress : Scalloped hemlines are beautiful. I think they look edgy and yet sophisticated and I'm constantly on the search for anything with a Scalloped Hem. This dress is a lovely red and would be great for a night out with friends or simply dinner(when paired with stilettos and a clutch) at a posh restaurant with friends and family. It's listed at £25.00 which is kind of pricey but a dress like this could potentially cost a lot more. You can find it here 
  3. Cream Leopard Bodycon Dress : This dress seems tricky to style (as with all animal prints). Style it the wrong way and you've got yourself a trashy mess. Style it the right way and you may find paparazzi mistaking you for a celebrity.. I would pair it with a white blazer and some rings but no other accessories. With this dress, I believe, less is more. It's listed at £22.00 and you can find it here 
  4. Multi Skater Party Dress : Imagine yourself wearing this dress at a fashion week event and I bet that's motivation enough for making you covet it. There are a few more options in sequined dresses on the site too but this one was my personal favorite among them. It's neutral and girly and could be worn for any high fashion events. Listed at £45.00 it isn't too expensive a price for a head-turning piece like this but it's certainly pricier than most of Fashion Union's selection. You can find it here 
Jumpers : Yes there's a category called jumpers. Ever since it's started getting cold I've just been in the mood for jumpers and unfortunately I realized I don't have any. This may sound surprising coming from a shopaholic like me but for someone who had been staying in a place with summer heat all year round (until recently when I came to a place where it's so cold I think I'm going to freeze!) , I never felt like I needed them.
  1. Stone Owl Print Jumper : The print on this jumper is so adorable and makes it unique. You're sure to stand out from the rest of the jumper-crowd while sporting this piece of awesomeness! You can find it here

 2. Black Sequin Shoulder Knitted Jumper : It looks comfy, soft and edgy all at the same time. would be perfect for days when its too cold to wear your favorite shirt and yet you want to look like you've put some effort into dressing up. You can find it here

Shoes!! Do i even need to explain? Every girl that loves beauty and fashion loves shoes.

  1. Black Quilted High Top Platform : These are great for everyday use if your day involves walking a lot or if you're a college student. These are actually the perfect alternative for sneakers for a college student that needs to walk around a lot.You can find them here
  2. White Studded Ankle Strap Sandal : Its pretty and its white so it can be paired with almost everything. Versatile and stylish. You can find them here

    So that's it for my Fashion Union wish list. It's a lot right? Maybe some never hurts to imagine. So did you guys like any of these? good thing they have free delivery throughout september right? :p

I was thinking about something like "Fall Weeklies" or "Saturdays in the Fall" These are pretty bad name but tell me which one you like or just suggest one of your own in the comments below!

Sweet Princess Limited Edition Mascara Review

I know what you're about to say, "Another mascara!? You're obsessed". While that is true, there's a reason to why this mascara needs its own review post.I never like to use mascara on my bottom lashes and so I never do. Now when I used this mascara I didn't feel impressed by it. It certainly wasn't as good as any Maybelline ones. But then I saw that it had such a cute and tiny wand and felt like using it on my bottom lashes and loved how it looked! For the first time in my life I actually liked how a mascara looked on my bottom lashes!

   Without Any Mascara
With Sweet Princess Limited Edition Mascara On Top And Bottom Lashes              
The tube itself is smaller than most mascaras and quite cute but definitely not as pretty as the Revlon Lash Potion Mascara.

If you are in Thailand or if you can get your hands on this tube I say you should get it but only if you like mascara on the bottom lashes. I never liked it but now I use this mascara only for the bottom lashes when I need to look more awake for calculus (which can put anyone to sleep) . 

Overall rating : I somehow can't decide whether I really love this product overall or not. I love one aspect of it but I don't like the other.
