Lifestyle | Under a Fig Tree by Rituals

I visited a Rituals shop the other day and was drawn towards the candle section like a bee is drawn to flowers. (Seriously, husband needs to drag me away at times from any Byredo counter or Jo Malone shop, I’d stay there all day otherwise ). I smelt quite a few candles from their elaborate selection & ended up picking this candle called under a fig tree.  

It’s described to be a purifying scented candle based on the enticing fragrance of Fresh Figs & Copaiba. Continue reading “Lifestyle | Under a Fig Tree by Rituals”

Beauty | Bobbi Brown winter collection, the Liquid Highlighter 

As I was browsing good old www.selfridges.com , I saw that Bobbi Brown had launched their winter collection. The stand out for me was the highlighter.

I have a hunch it’s going to be this limited edition lipstick that Chanel released this fall as part of their Rouge Allure line (2015 edition) in #53 a.k.a La Mysterieuse.

Beauty | Review || Dior Fall 2015 Diorblush CheekStick 

I picked this up a few months ago and I’ve been using it ever since . If you’ve read my Chanel Cheek Colour stick review then you’ll have noticed that I recommended this Dior blush if you’re more oily skinned or live in a humid and hot climate. If your skin is normal or even dry, then fear not because this beauty is pretty much made to match every skin type or weather condition you may have to weather ( yes, that pun was intended )  .  Continue reading “Beauty | Review || Dior Fall 2015 Diorblush CheekStick “
