Like most of you, I, also have cellulite here and there.. I usually don't believe in any cellulite cream or other hyped up product..  Clarins is a trusted brand, it's not exactly luxurious, made with miracle dust but I was willing to try it since I have been doing better with my diet and exercise.. 

You know how it goes, you start this week at the gym, next week you miss a day, then you miss two, before you know it you've missed a whole month and you never go back.. This starting and stopping also contributes to the cellulite and if you're not good on drinking water, it only gets worse..

So, here I am, 3 weeks in with my Clarins and yes ma'am.. The difference has been noticed.. Before we scream for joy, let me explain how it works..

The bottle contains 200ml, which is a significant amount of product.. You receive a leaflet in the box with instructions.. There are 3 types of instructions for massages; to lighten the legs, reduce the look of cellulite and to refine the buttocks, hips and abdomen..

  • To lighten the legs: You massage your legs in order to promote lighter feeling legs and thighs by stimulating microcirculation. This helps you to get a more contoured silhouette.

  • To reduce the look of cellulite: You massage your legs in order to reduce the look of cellulite by activating the natural elimination of excess water and lipids through these massages.

  • To refine the buttocks, hips and abdomen: This last massage is to refine the buttocks, hips and abdomen by completing the natural 'draining' process which is done by massaging these parts.

The instructions come with pictures so you can see exactly how to do your massages.. I've done them everyday since getting the cream and I must admit that I do see a difference.. I also exercise but especially on the front of my thighs, I have seen a significant difference.. My legs look more defined, firm and smoother..

I would like the back of my legs to look the same so I'll continue using the cream as I still have quite some left.. The moon crates on my buttocks are a bit more stubborn but my skin does look better..

I think it's a must to drink enough water and exercise but the Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control has definitely helped in the process!

I have fallen back on the online shopping since being back to island life.. Mostly because I'm getting my priorities straight and trying to be more creative with what I already have.. So, here I am, trying to be good and I come across websites like Zaful.. 

Mind you, even though island life is poppin, swimsuits on the island are pretty expensive.. Zaful has an extensive collection of clothes but the swimsuit collection is enormous and the prices are unbelievable.. So, I thought, let me give this a try because these things are usually too good to be true..

I browsed endlessly on the website.. I always wanted a scalloped bathing suit and there were plenty I could choose from.. I ultimately chose this one because good high waisted bikinis are hard to find and I wanted to see if Zaful would be my new go to website for bikinis..

Asian sizes are obviously different from what we're used to, so I ordered the largest size available, XL.. And, the waiting game begun.. It took quite a while (weeks) for my order to arrive but what a lovely surprise when I went to get it and didn't have to pay any extra charges..

My first impression was 'WoW! Such thick material.. The swimsuit looked beautiful, the material felt right, the quality looked great.. I wasn't thrilled about the boob pads but once I got in the water, I could appreciate them.. The material doesn't necessarily become see through but when wet the material seems thinner.. The sizing was good, it fit without any issues.. I only wish the high waist was actually higher but that's a personal preference.. The bikini looks beautiful!

I'm sold on Zaful.. A new swimwear shop added to the list!

MoroccanOil Body Buff | MoroccanOil Body Soufflé 
Available at The Yellow House

I wasn't aware that MoroccanOil had branched out into body products; so imagine my surprise when I received these.. 

Starting off with the Body Buff, it comes with a small scooper which I really liked because this keeps products from building up under my nails. The first time I used it I had just shaven my legs. I kid you not, this scrubbed so gently, not irritating my skin at all. I was hesitant since it contains exfoliating quartz sand but it scrubbed perfectly. Being that it is oil based, with argan, safflower and sesame oils and it is blended with shea and cacao butter, I was worried about it leaving greasy residue but this was not the case. There's a slight film that remains after washing it off but once dried off, it's not there. The skin is left moisturized, hydrated,  smooth, soft and glowing. My legs looked hella bomb after using the MoroccanOil Body Buff.

After using the MoroccanOil Body Buff, I didn't really feel the need to moisturize with the MoroccanOil Body Soufflé but I thought what the hell, I might as well. The MoroccanOil Body Soufflé is very watery so I didn't know what to expect. As I applied it I realized that a little goes a long way. It looks like lotion but you certainly feel the presence of the argan oil and shea butter. It applies so smooth and penetrates into the skin leaving you with soft, dewy, moisturized and hydrated skin. 

I really enjoy both products and have seen a significance difference in my skin. My skin looks so smooth, hydrated and feels very very soft. I even tried the MoroccanOil Body Soufflé on my face because I didn't have my face cream with me, well.. My face was dewy, moisturized and looked very healthy. I applied some highlighter over it, I was looking bomb!

After using MoroccanOil hair products I didn't need any convincing that their products were good but, after using these two, I can honestly say, worth every penny!

Beauty | Current High-End Must Haves!*

Sometimes I'm a bit cautious about sharing high-end products because they are not as attainable to everyone and I like sharing products everyone can find and afford. With that being said, I do like trying high-end products as sometimes they really are worth the hype and price. Here are my current high-end must haves..

YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stain

I was a bit skeptical when I first got this lip stain as I have tried other brands before of which the lip stain did not actually stain your lips. On the other hand, I have also tried lip stains which have dried on the lips and instead of staining, just created a crusty, dry layer on the lips. 

This YSL one is great. The applicator is absolute perfection. It is shaped perfectly for a smooth application and feels soft to the touch. The lip stain it self goes on a bit more thick and shiny than I'd like but after dabbing a tissue on the lips once, the lip stain looks and feels perfect. It lasts for hours and keeps the lips feeling moisturized. There wasn't even really a need to reapply after eating and drinking. For a lip stain, the color is impressively vibrant. I was pleasantly surprised.

YSL The Shock

I am a firm drugstore mascara user as in my experience, they are the best but the YSL The Shock did not disappoint at all! The wand makes it possible for the mascara to do exactly what I love my mascaras to do. It grabs the lashes, coats them completely from root to tip and volumizes like no other. The roots get so nicely coated I barely need eyeliner to shape my eyes.

The mascara has a slight smell but nothing worrisome. It feels light, does not clump, does not transfer and is very black. The only thing I was missing was it being waterproof as I have watery eyes but it holds up so well that it did not matter. It is also pretty easy to get off but most importantly, it looks awesome.

Guerlain Idylle

A good (signature) smell is very important. The Idylle is soft yet noticeable. I like it since it's not overpowering but has a unique smell. I'd describe it as floral yet light and airy. I mostly use it on nights out but it can easily be worn on a daily basis too. A little bit goes a long way.

Guerlain Terracotta

The first time I tried this bronzer was by using a small sample I got with a previous purchase. Needless to say, I went back and got the real deal. There hasn't been any other bronzer that makes me look as healthy and sun kissed as this one. It has the perfect amount of warmth for my skin tone. 

It lasts all day and complements my contour beautifully. I love a warm, golden, glowy look and this bronzer is it. It doesn't matter how much you apply, it doesn't look powdery at all and blends flawlessly onto the skin.

Diorskin Forever

I have a love-hate relationship with liquid foundations but this one right here shut me right up. Imagine how floored I was when I applied this foundation and it applied like a second skin. All it took was two pumps and minimum blending. 

I did the application with a fluffy brush and didn't even have to blend much. It claims to be medium coverage but without applying any concealer, it covered all discoloration. The formula is matte but not drying. There's barely any transfer and it feels light on the skin. I have an oily T-zone; blotting removed the oil but the foundation remained perfectly in place. I was shook. Needless to say, it is absolutely worth it! I mean two pumps, full face application and stays in place all day.. winner!

I've been seeing these shirts everywhere online and didn't want to order one just to sit around waiting for it to be shipped and having to pay taxes when it finally decides to arrive.. So, I made my own thing.. 

I think I've spoken before about my love for white crisp t-shirts.. I barely care what's on it, as long as its crisp white, I'm all for it..
