Madame Ladybug Period Subscription box : September 2017

Image
There was a lot of hassle to get this box !

We all need a little comfort when we are on our period, so I thought that it would be a brilliant idea to get myself a Madame Ladybug Period Subscription box. I chose the ultimate box, and I got a one-time purchase time. It cost me 29 euro, but then I had to pay another 8 euro because of tax on toiletries coming from the USA. I had a little issue getting this box because I ordered it in August, and it arrived in November. However, that was partly my fault because I didn't realise that they were not sending boxing due to personal issues. I must admit that I panicked though because I couldn't reach them on any social media.
Once the package arrived, I felt ecstatic! I immediately opened it and found white and red tissue paper, and once removed there were three patterned and colourful plastic bags. In one bag there were the products to use on your period (pads, tampons, wipes), in another bag there was a lot of comfort food and some te…

Book Review : The Savage Song

Image
Hey !
The Savage Song by Victoria E. Schwab is the first book from a duology, and a beautifully written Fantasy book based in a world not too different from ours. In fact it is our world but when monsters start to roam the planet freely and not remain in hiding like in other stories. Everyone in Verity is aware of the existence of monsters and it is their fault if they are attacked while walking in dark places. The story we read occurs twelve years after an event called The Phenomenon in V-City.

When I posted a photo of this book on Instagram, I captioned it "The human wishes to act like a monster; The monster wishes to act human..."
I think that this caption summarizes our two main characters : Kate and August. Kate Harker is the daughter of Callum Harker, the most powerful man in the city. August Flynn is the son of Henry Flynn, Harker's enemy. Both of their fathers are 'leaders' of different parts of Verity : Callum Harker leads the North Side of Verity, while…

Owl Crate Unboxing : October 2017

OwlCrate October 2017 unboxing
It has been over a year since my last owlcrate unboxing.

Since it has been a while since I last got an Owlcrate, I was extremely excited when I had gotten home and found it on my bed.
This month's theme was , and I got it ordered because I thought the theme sounded interested. However, I also got it because I lost my mind over the fact that there was going to be a Harry Potter inspired item in the box.
Okay , getting into the blog. *grabs spoiler card* Let me tell you what Owlcrate had in store for October.
First item on the list is a delicious smelling candle from In The Wick of Time. It is inspired by The Raven Cycle forest Cabeswater, and it smells of moss and peppermint. It is important to note that the peppermint overpowers the moss but the moss is still pretty distinguishable.

A very surprising item for me in this box is the tea blend. I was not expecting it at all. However, I am sure that I will enjoy it because it supposedly tastes just like…

Review : Momentary Ink Tattoo

Image
Hey !
THIS WAS THE SUMMER OF TATTOOS!
A few weeks ago, I posted a review of me using Inkbox Tattoos. This week I shall be reviewing a tattoo from Momentary Ink Tattoos !

Momentary Ink Tattoos is a company that sells temporary tattoos. Their quote is "The Look of a real tattoo, the life of a temporary one." It offers a range of tattoos from quotes to art, and also, it offers an option to create your own custom tattoo.
Momentary Tattoos are quite different from the Inkbox Tattoos that I reviewed. First of all, these tattoo do not sink into the first layer of your skin. These remind me of those tattoos we used to get when we were kids with gum : the ones were you put them on the skin and cover them with a damp cloth. The only difference is that these are quite pricey and they look cooler. You can also customise the size of the tattoo, and the price varies according to your preferred size.

I got the design Fly With Me which is a Peter Pan inspired tattoo,  that I have actually …

Lush Review : Lava Lamp Bath Bomb

Image
Hey !
It has been a while since I posted a Lush review but here I am, back to spending my salary on a Lush Haul. Today, I want to talk about this orange ball of amazing-ness : The Lava Lamp Bath Bomb. Now, I'm going to be real with you I love this bath bomb because orange and purple are my two top favourite colours so I was very excited when picking this up in the Lush store.

This orange sphere has 3 purple spots which are actually bath melts ! Basically, this lovely bath bomb is loaded with nutrients for your skin. Lava Lamp is made from a mixture of citrus oils including tangerine oil, mandarin oils and orange flower absolute. This concoction gives Lava Lamp a highly fruity scent which is super refreshing.


This bath bomb dissolves rather quickly as it shoots out rays of orange across your water and turning the bath water....wait for it.....ORANGE ! A beautiful bright orange which gets stained with streams of purple oil from the 3 purple spots. As these 3 spots dissolve they flo…

Things I am tired of hearing about Long Distance Relationships

Image
Hey !
If you have read my A-Z of me blog post then you will know that I have been in a long distance relationship for 3 years. Being in a long distance relationship is one of the difficult things in my life at the moment but I fight through it since I know that in a few years it will be worth it. However, people around me love being negative about long distance relationships. So without further ado, I present to you Things that I am tired of hearing about being in a long distance relationship.


"You are basically single 85% of the year."
I don't think people realize that being in a relationship isn’t all about being in physical contact with them. Having that lack of physical contact makes us more open to talk about our feelings and conflicts.

"How do you know that he isn't cheating on you?"
I hate this one so much because people could be living together and they could be cheating on each other. The truth is I don't know if he's cheating on me but I tr…

Scents in my air.

Image
Hey ! As you know, with different seasons you would want a fitting scent in your room.  Over the past few months, I have been trying out different candles and wax melts, and I loved them all so much that I am going to talk about them now.

Pink Grapefruit Wax Melt. UNICORN KING HAS PROVIDED ME WITH THE YUMMY FRUIT SCENT THAT I SHALL USE EVERY SUMMER. Yes, I said Unicorn King. No, you cannot comment saying "There is no such thing as a Unicorn King." This beautiful wax melt smells delicious. It smells yummy. Yes, I know that they mean the same thing. Please don't point it out. It's just a really good scent and it reminds me of summer. Like, you know in the summer everyone is drinking Slushies, or whatever they call them wherever you're from, and they smell really fruity? That is what this smells like, which I guess makes sense since Grapefruit is a fruit....I am not doing well with this review. Let's start this again.
*deep breath* This wax melt is the perfect s…
