Hello 2019


Been a while I know but am promising myself to be more active here since it’s just the beginning of the year Happy new year to you wishing everyone a great 2019 filled with health, love , happiness and success!

As known , every new year we decide on writing down resolutions with the hope to start a new satisfying lifestyle that we aim to attain every year.

Personally , am truly promising myself with the will of god to make 2019 my epic year! How can that be done without managing our time and days – so thought of using The Eleven Planner which I previously used , it helped me a lot to make my 2018 more fulfilling! btw I love journal online apps but I prefer the actual paper touch – the smell of new Real paper ignites a certain feeling inside me, it’s actually proven its better to keep a written journal. Since we cannot write as fast as we type, it forces our brains to slow down and be more intentional of our real thoughts Also, numerous studies have proven that the connection of physically writing something (the tactile and kinesthetic moves of it trigger the release of different neurotransmitter in the brain. To me Old ways are always healthier.

Being online daily makes me crave to be offline , when planning and managing my life at least.

So here are some snapshots of the updated Planner , 2019 version :

As mentioned it’s such a “magic tool” works like a life couch on the go , directs you when lost , inspires you when in quest basically it gives your days a purpose and balances your life obligations.

Simply can’t live without it!

The Primer Review

1                                                                                                2

Today I will be sharing my feedback on those 2 primers , again my feedback is a personal one which means that what I have experienced may not reflect yours … but from time to time I enjoy sharing my experience to help people who are always in search of the best products out there …

Here you go :

  • Primer 1  is Smashbox (PHOTO FINISH) PURPLE :

I loved this product put it on after the moisturiser, give it a 10 min to dry up then put whatever you want baby cream or a foundation  or wear it alone , it basically does what it claims:

  1. Reduces the appearance of pores instantly
  2. Non drying formula
  3. Absorbs oil  and keeps makeup on up to 8 hours
  4. Gives a flawless feel and look

My Rating : 9/10

 

Primer 2 is Benefit (The POREfessional ) Green :

This product was okay , it doesn’t do the job fully , although it gives you a  beautiful feel on your skin , but the  appearance of pores somehow shows , here what I noticed about this product :

  1. Lightweight
  2. Velvet feeling on the skin
  3. Translucent
  4. Amazing scent

My Rating : 7/10

 

 

*Friendly Reminder : This review reflects my personal experience and the products reaction with my skin tone (Fair , combination skin)and texture. It may reflect you and it may not, just a friendly share! Hope I helped anyone out there searching for the perfect primer 😉

Yours sincerely,

The Exotic Scent


PERFUME 2016

 

Here are my set of perfumes that I mix for those who are interested  …

Many people randomly ask’s me about what kind of scent I have on and they seem to wait for one scent reply …  its always hard to answer since my exotic smell comes from the (Mix) I do … I simply mix Arabian scents with European ones that I like and voilà I create a total new amazing scent, ie. East meets West! magic mix ! also let me not forget to mention the wooden Bokhour Scent (winter time) also has its special role! Spray a small bit from each perfume!and enjoy the magic mix you get.

Reminder: Each body reacts differently with each scent.. so get a tester or try them on before purchasing.

*Kind Tip: Remember don’t store perfumes in your bathroom, humidity will break down the perfume and lessen the quality of the fragrance. Instead, store them in cool place and away from windows.
