March beauty favourites!


20130401-121926.jpg

With the wonderful month of March back, I’m getting into the full spirit of Spring and there’s a few staple products that I’ve been using during last month! So I thought for the first day of Blogging April, I’d show you my beauty favourites!

Revlon Grow Luscious mascara is my favourite mascara for this month! It takes me around 2 months to finish off a mascara and I’ve been using this one on and off for the past 6 months! I opened it and instantly disliked it but after a week or two of using it I was like: “WOW”! This really does help to make your lashes look naturally longer! I’d suggest letting it dry out for a few months before using it because it feels very strange and unusually wet at first! The brush is HUGE too which causes a lot of mess on your eyelids but makes application so much quicker!

Too Faced Shadow Insurance has been the best eye shadow primer I’ve used so far! I used Urban Decay Primer Potion for a little while and found that it felt the exact same as this one! But Too Faced lasts SOOO much longer during the day! I love using it by itself to stop my eyelids from getting oily and it does a fantastic job!

Essie Muchi Muchi has been a must in my books! It’s the perfect soft and pastel pink for Spring! If you love your nails looking clean and natural without doing French tips, this nail varnish is the one for you! You can do so much with this in terms of nail art too!

Sleek have my favourite eye shadow palettes by when they released their Blush by Three blushers, I grabbed the one I knew I’d use the most in Pink Spirit. The colours are as vivid as they look in the camera and all of the colours look fantastic however, I think the first and last colours look a little too similar when on the cheek.. But I like the fact you can use those two colours as contours and blushers and its a perfect 2 in 1 colour!

Bioderma has been a staple in my cleansing routine! It takes off make up effortlessly and makes the end of a hard day that little bit easier! Happy days! It’s readily available in French Chemists and not so much in England but the rumour is, it’ll be arriving soon! It’s inexpensive and so effective even though it feels like water! A must!

Drug Store Spring make up tutorial


I had seen an image of a pink smokey a while ago and it looked AMAZING! I tried to follow it step by step and although I loved it.. It took me about half an hour to fourth five minutes to complete the whole look! So I made a variation which could be worn day to day.
This is the original make up look


This is my take on it that took far too long!

20130226-152412.jpg
And this is the look I’ll be showing you today!

20130226-152442.jpg

Grab your Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer in medium and conceal what you need to..

20130226-153336.jpg
And you’ll end up fresh faced like this..

20130226-153353.jpg

You then want to apply your foundation or whatever you like to use daily. I’m using L’oreal Nude Magique BB cream in light..

20130226-153447.jpg

I’m then using Too Faced shadow insurance on my lids..

20130226-153455.jpg

We’ll be using the Sleek Oh So Special palette for the whole look today..

20130226-153513.jpg

So on a fluffy flat too eye shadow brush I’m using this pink colour on my crease and blending it up and not letting it touch my lid..

20130226-153521.jpg
And you’ll get this..

20130226-153536.jpg

You then want to dab a pointed stubby brush in this medium brown colour and apply on the outer corner and crease of your lid..

20130226-153552.jpg
So you’ll end up with a nicely defined outer corner like this.. You want to blend this into the pink too..

20130226-153619.jpg

Using my Maybelline Gel Eyeliner, I’m going to softly line my top lash line with a small wing on the end. I like to lightly pull my eye lid so I get a clean line..

20130226-153629.jpg
And it’ll look like this..

20130226-153641.jpg

Powder your face with the translucent powder that comes in the Kick Ass Concealer kit..

20130226-153655.jpg

And you want to curl and add your Soap and Glory Thick and Fast mascara using the end of the brush to the coat the corner lashes..

20130226-153703.jpg

Use your clear mascara to tame those wild brows!

20130226-153759.jpg

And it’s time to add light into the face using L’oreal Lumi Magique primer.. You only need a small amount like this..

20130226-153857.jpg
Apply it here..

20130226-153915.jpg
Here..

20130226-153922.jpg
Here..

20130226-160211.jpg
Here..

20130226-160300.jpg
And here..

20130226-160320.jpg

You want to grab your Body Shop Lip and Cheek stain and apply this on your lips and cheeks and just add some lip balm like the Born Lippy Watermelon scented one!

20130226-161248.jpg

Curl your lashes once more, now they’re dry to give them an extra boost..

20130226-160842.jpg

And this is the finished look..

What to/ How to/ Haul..


With the winter months here, I know it’s hard for us Hijabi’s to figure out what we want to wear whilst still being modest!

I’ve always been a boots kind of girl and dug out an old pair or two of knee high boots that I got a few summers ago during the sales which I was so glad to find! They were £30 from the ASOS sale so a complete bargain and something like a long jacket and knee high boots is perfect for a hijabi to wear when it’s wet outside and you don’t want to get your skirt or abaya wet but still want to look modest :)

I love the fact that the calf bit of these boots isn’t too big for my skinny legs and that they’re flat so are comfortable to wear all day!

I love the gold embellishment and soft black leather of these shoes as I’m not a fan of patent shiny leather. I could wear these with any outfit! If you’re wondering, I’m a size 5 :)
Unfortunately ASOS don’t sell these exact shoes anymore but here are a similar pair.

If its not that wet and cold where you live then ankle boots are the way forward! If you cover your feet and don’t wear pumps unless they’re with socks, try some ankle booties like these! They have a wedge but it is only 2 inches high with an inch platform so it’s perfect for giving height without being over the top! I wear ankle boots with my abayas and skirts all the time and they always look fab. I’ve never worn them with jeans etc as I don’t wear jeans and they don’t provide me with enough coverage :)

These tan boots are from River Island for £35. They have a lovely colour which like black, suits most outfits and gives a lovely option other than black. I like the laces too as they add a little something extra when most of the show is covered by your skirt. They also come in black!

The next items are for the wedding season that is approaching! I’m so excited for my cousins wedding that is coming up in less than a month and decided to pick out some abayas for options that I could wear. Being on the hunt for a bargain, I looked on eBay and found a seller with the best abayas there are online at the moment! I think there was a sale on at the time or perhaps they were just really cheap but I was so happy when I got them! Also, they gave me a discount because I bought more than one which I was SO happy about!

I love all the detail that has gone into the embroidery of this wonderful brown abaya. The detailing is orange, brown and silver and it is all hand made! I like the intricate touches of the scarf detail and little embellishment on the back too. I’ve also shown you how I’d wear the scarf. Please excuse the bulkiness in the neckline image as I tried to cover my modesty. Find the buyer here! They have new stock regularly! Although this particular abaya is now gone, this next one is still available!

This grey abaya with silver embroidery is my fave!! I love the colour and style of it and it looks beautiful on! They also sell these in other colours and its a bargain at £21.99! They dispatched the item really quick, gave me a really good discount for postage and packaging and had excellent customer service! I’ve got my eye on this glittery one next! They also have an array of sizes.. So get measuring!!

This next abaya is from another seller and is more casual! The price and material is lovely and it’s perfect for those cold spring nights! I like the simple detailing! Although this one is slightly larger on me, I will be cutting the bottom and will be sure to post a picture of me wearing this on my Facebook and Instagram @inherbubble!

The detailing is simple and easy to wear and because it has no beading, nothing will fall off! I love the colour and the way it drops. The scooped neck insures optimum coverage and the waist can be tailored by the in-built belt in the abaya! Find the seller here!They have bargains and this abaya was only £19.99

My next favourite is BLACK! I’m loving black scarves at the moment and this scarf from Tie Rack is AMAZING! I love the thickness and tassels. Although the material does itch a little bit, I think it’s because I have quite sensitive skin! I’ve been loving wearing my scarf like this too! One pin jobby! LAZY DAISY FAIZY!

This scarf is huge and you don’t need to wear any other scarf or snood with this! It’s at Tie Rack for £24.99.

I got these bracelets from our fellow YouTuber StyleSuzi! She hand makes her jewellery in your chosen colour! She has some great stuff on her website!

20120915-180738.jpg

20120915-180745.jpg
These 2 bracelets have fantastic colours! I absolutely love how delicate and subtle they are! Debenhams are having a 25% sale at the moment so go in and look at their jewellery because I got these bracelets for £12 each!

20120915-180757.jpg
I was in the garden today with my mum and we were discussing how she wasn’t wearing earrings! (if you know my mum, she’s never seen without jewellery) I was sitting on the grass next to a flower so popped it in her ear and think they look gorgeous! Lovely for a beach or park day!

20120915-180804.jpg
I’m not afraid of animals and definitely not bees! So I didn’t mind snapping this little fuzz ball doing its thing in a flower in the garden!

20120915-180813.jpg
Who says you need a grill when you’re doing a BBQ?? My dad grabbed himself a random wok used for making roti’s, got some corn and we all had BBQ corn on the cob today! It was AMAZING! (The mess in the back.. We’re redecorating!)
