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!

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:
- Reduces the appearance of pores instantly
- Non drying formula
- Absorbs oil and keeps makeup on up to 8 hours
- 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 :
- Velvet feeling on the skin
- 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 😉

Its been a few month now since I have tried this night serum , it was my first ever product from Kiehl’s , sure I have heard a lot about this brand , but I wasn’t aware of how beneficial its products are … so let me tell you my feedback on this miracle , how many of us don’t sleep enough , that you wake up in the morning have a tired look , this product did the job! it made me look as if I had the best night sleep !
My personal feedback on the product:
- Suits all skin type
- It has a lavender scent, very relaxing
- Luminous skin in the morning
- Heals the acne scars
- It lasts almost 3 month
- Not an anti-aging product
- The scent is strong and somehow discomforts the eye
Hope it was helpful , again it’s my personal feedback 🙂
It’s been a while since I was thinking of doing a detox diet plan ,not an extreme one , just the normal energiser & cleansing type. My biggest concern now is to get rid of any excess waste that my body lately been storing and in the same time to strengthen my immune system.
My detox plan was a 3-day mission, The Energizer Cleanse focusing on cold pressed juices rich in both vegetables and fruits that our body’s initially requires.It consists of two Super Green Juice, one Beetroot, one PAMP (Pineapple, Apple, Mint, Pear), one Spicy Lemonade and one of our creamy Almond Milk (with dates and cinnamon).
First of all , before starting the detox plan ,I stopped 2 days ahead carbs and coffee just to make my body aware of the eating habits change awaiting.
The First day of the detox was the hardest , I had headaches and felt sluggish! but as long as you are done with the first day consider yourself somehow done, am not saying that it was easy , sadly its not.. I was stressed and inactive – although the juices I had were supposed to claim energy!
My feedback on the detox challenge was that I really felt I needed it so bad ,I needed to cleanse my self from all the toxics in my body. I felt so light in soul and radiant in skin – I now believe “What you indulge inside you really does reflect back on you” ! Eat well nothing is more valuable than your wellbeing! It’s the healthy intake and lifestyle that brings health , happiness and peace. – Nothing else.
Sharing some benefits of Detoxing:
- Boosts Your Energy
- Rids the Body of Any Excess Waste
- Helps with Weight Loss
- Stronger Immune System
- Improved Skin
- Lighter Feeling
- Healthier Hair
- Anti-Aging Benefits
If you are thinking of detoxing … Go ahead and do it! trust me its worth the challenge! 🙂
If I wished to be at the Paris Couture Week , it’s all to attend the Ralph & Russo house fashion show the (Spring/Summer) 2016 is amazingly stunning! Their SS16 collection bought back the old glam years of fashion “specifically 1950’s” .
I always loved crepe capes , ruffles , peplum silhouette and flower appliqué designs to me such cuts and designs empowered delicate femininity in you boosting the grace and confidence. No wonder they were the first brand in a century to be invited to show at Paris Haute Couture ! Ralph&Russo have this Magic mix in adopting new trends while sparkling with old glamour touch to me their clientele will be simply confident woman who know what they want. Pure Elegance.
