Midnight Recovery by Kiehl’s


kiehls review

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:

Pros :

  • 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

 

Cons :

  • Not an anti-aging product
  • The scent is strong and somehow discomforts the eye

 

Hope it was helpful , again it’s my personal feedback 🙂

Kind wishes,

Nora

My Detox Plan


detox

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:

  1. Boosts Your Energy
  2. Rids the Body of Any Excess Waste
  3. Helps with Weight Loss
  4. Stronger Immune System
  5. Improved Skin
  6. Lighter Feeling
  7. Healthier Hair
  8. Anti-Aging Benefits

If you are thinking of detoxing … Go ahead and do it! trust me its worth the challenge! 🙂

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.

Paris Haute Couture Week 2016


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.

Be who you want to be associated with don’t wait for change , change does not happen eventually unless you take up the determination to make it happen! Although it’s easy said than done.”Have courage and be kind” … remember Cinderella’s mother last words.. Believe that all hard work will pay off someday . Simply have FAITH.

Support and inspire each other with kind words , moves etc…

Be your own Makeup Artist


Today’s post is about how to learn the secret tips and magic of Beauty and its relation to makeup … so we thought of having a 1-1 session with the Kuwaiti MUA Sebybeaute

Beautiful makeup is art ,and to be able to attain a masterpiece you should somehow have an interest, passion and the skill to learn more about it. Of-coarse each part of the world has its own special standard of “beauty” . .  and even you ? So if you get to know what you want then you are almost there to attain the look you are after or want.

Personally in terms of application and techniques I believe in the saying “Less is more” and  that each of us is beautiful in someway and feature , we just need to know and defined it by simple make up.

*Remember , This important Tip: 

You need to understand your skin type condition , based on that you get to buy and apply the makeup products.

***What suits a friend doesn’t always work with you too.

Here’s a visual Manual of the tools of the trade (the brushes):

Understanding all brush-set role will take you to another level of proficient makeup.
