My Favorite Victoria’s Secret Body Mists ❤

My Fav VS Body Mists

I was compiling a list of perfumes for an upcoming post when inspiration hit me and I decided to share some of my favorite body mists from Victoria’s Secret. Body Mists are lighter than perfumes but are still worth having. I like Victoria’s Secret body mist more because they come in travel friendly size. I always have one of these in my bag every time I go out. I bought three a few months back and have been using them a lot in rotation and there is still so much to go.

All of these mists have a sexy smell to them. Bombshell in Bloom was the first one I started using. It has a floral smell that is girlish/flirtish sort. I fell in love with it on first sniff – definitely the one to have in your collection for summer. Angel Gold has a musk filled sandalwood kind of tone. It was the last one I started using because I wasn’t sure if I liked it that much but now it’s all I use – perfect for evenings out. Night is what love at first sight would feel like I am sure. As per VS it smells like ‘fruity notes, exotic florals, dark woods and sultry musks’, do I really need to add more? If you buy just one mist then make sure it is Night because it’s all you will ever need.

Have a good weekend ya’ll!

Love,

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks by Kate Moss~

It is common knowledge in this part of the internet that I don’t have much experience with makeup but I like to spend fortunes on it. Though there is just one product I like to be careful about before picking – Lipsticks. Ever since buying Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Lady Red, which was the darkest red ever, as my first proper lip color and practically never wearing it I decided to experiment with colors a little before investing in my first ever MAC Lipstick (and the haul that will follow).

I went over to Rimmel Counter a couple of days back and after swatching (it’s not a word I know but please just go with the flow with this one) almost every lipstick in the stand, I came out with two.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate 05 is a pretty pink that is very similar to my natural lip color. This lipstick brings out my lips fuller and I can go with the statement – My lips but better, ha. This is an everyday color.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate 12 is a bright Orange/Tangerine color that I bought just because MAC So Chaude didn’t suit me and I was very upset about it. I love 12 and sport it more than 05 as I am still getting the hang of wearing Pink. Not A very girly girl. This is a great shade for autumn/winter.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks are glossy and glide on well. I usually apply a lip balm, Maybelline Baby Lips in Quenched if I am in a rush or The Body Shop Cocoa Lip Butter if I have some time in my hand before applying lipstick. If your balm hasn’t sunk in and you apply these lipsticks, they are never staying on, so be careful about that.

These Lipsticks are not very long lasting especially if you’re going to be eating or drinking but if you don’t mind checking your makeup every now and then, this will do just fine with you. The best thing is their price tag, so very reasonable at just R.O. 2.900.

Overall I am happy with the purchase (but my mind won’t stop screaming MAC & Bobbib Brown NEXT!!!!!)

Love,

1- The Beach

I think it’s fair enough to say Oman has the best beaches. This was a shot of Azaiba Beach from a while back around sunset. I love the colors and the water. I wish I could go to the beach more often.

2- The Shopping

This has been happening and I don’t know how to stop myself. I am dealing with some real shopaholic issues. I need to focus more on saving than spending because there is so much I need to get done and only money can make that happen. I think I want to stop splurging so much for a while.

3- The Office Life

Let’s just not get me started on this. I have honestly got no time to do anything ever since I started working full time. I don’t even get time for myself. I have been working late too and that’s why sometimes there is no post the next day. It’s been a complete struggle to keep up with a normal life while working. It is just so demanding.

Olay - Fix and Henry

4- The Beauty Fluid

Now that winter is in full swings here I have gone back to using my Olay Essentials Beauty Fluid. It is just amazing when it comes to fighting off dry skin and it’s also a great face primer. I have been using The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream previously but it is almost ending and I haven’t got a second’s time to go and repurchase it. So I thought it’s a good time to revisit some old favorites. 😉

5- The Twilight Craze Resurfacing

Oh gosh, it is that time of the year again. When it gets cold here or rains, all I can think about is Forks and The Cullens. My Twilight craze resurfaces and I read the books and watch the movies nonstop. I don’t get that much time now because of work but I am taking it slow and so far I have completed the movies till Eclipse and started the first book.

6- The Domain

Guys, I have registered for a domain and as of today www.famtaq.com is live. 🙂 I can’t believe it has finally happened. I have waited so long for this. I am beyond happy. It was one of my goals thing year. Also, I want you guys to know I am not going to stop blogging and I’ll always be here – in my parts of the internet. 🙂

 ~

Sometimes writing a Lately post is as easy as breathing and sometimes it takes so much energy to gather what all I’ve been up to. This post started out as such a struggle but I am done with it so quick I can’t believe it. I also wanted to tell you guys that I haven’t been doing much lately so if there isn’t a Lately post for a week or two, don’t panic. I’ll do one as soon as I have something new to share about my life with you all. 🙂

Thank you for reading! ❤

XOXO!

A Bit of Shopping, Fashion

New In Closet~

DSC05818

After tearing a giant hole in my Parfois bag that I intended to blog about and breaking my Adore bag recently, I was yet again on the hunt of finding a new bag that will take my rough treatment. I wanted to go for a plain black bag and wasn’t in the mood of spending much. H&M usually do expensive bags and I haven’t heard any reviews about them from people I know, so I never gave their bags much thought. Two weeks back I went there aimlessly and that’s where I found this beauty.

It’s a hard material plain black bag with gold detailing which is my favorite combination ever. It has short straps as well as long strap attachment too that turns it into a Satchel but I don’t take it that way (cuz I overdid that style for 2 years). The interior isn’t fancy. It has no compartments. It just has a small zip pocket on one side and two pockets on the other. It is very spacious too which is just awesome. It’s a dump-everything-in-me-while-rushing-out-of-the-door-cuz-you’re-late-AF bag. I LOVE IT!!!! The best thing about it is, it is weightless. I carry so much stuff with me + a huge book (always) and that all is weighing it down, but it still seems far weightless compared to my previous bags. Finding and purchasing it was like a dream come true.

It was originally RO 20.900 or RO 21.900 I guess, but it was reduced to RO 8.000. Now wasn’t that a great bargain?

Have a good day y’all 🙂

Love,

A BIT OF SHOPPING #4 ~ First Ever Shopping From MAC + Building A Basic Brushes Collection

I give up. I have been trying so hard to sleep early every day so that I get 7+ hours sleep and I am not sleepy at work. It hasn’t been working very well this past two weeks. I don’t know the reason why but let’s make the most of this opportunity and start late night blogging again, ha.

1419064907588_1

So this happened. 😀

I made a trip to MAC couple of days back and did my first ever purchase from there. I splurged on two brushes. I am trying to build my basic brushes collection and I don’t want to get all the brushes from one place. These two were just so hard to resist.

1420655833064-1

MAC 168 – (R.O. 18.500) I love contouring and what a great difference it brings to a no shape face (read me). Now I am no professional but my first few tries from a normal beauty kit brush went pretty great. That’s when I thought it is time to invest in a proper contouring brush. MAC 168 caught my eyes last year when I was looking for a nice blusher brush and read some reviews how it could be used for contouring and blusher as well. It won’t hurt to get a multi-task brush now would it? I went to the store to see it and fell in love with how pretty it was. So far I haven’t tried it for contouring but it is not that great with blush. That’s just an initial observation but I would do a proper review soon in a few weeks. 🙂

1420655785426-1

MAC 217 – (R.O. 11.500) This was kind of a well thought purchase. I read Anna’s post about this brush saying how it’s the best eye shadow brush for cack-handed people for making their eye shadow look flawless (Click Here To Read It!!). I really like eye shadows but because of my droopy lids I never gave it a go. After reading this post I thought to take the plunge. I got it, I’ve been using it and I AM LOVING IT!!! This is such an easy all-over-your-lid-in-one-swipe brush and does give a flawless finish no matter how hurriedly you do the process. I have been using it every morning and it doesn’t even take me a minute to get done with my lids. A must buy if I can say already. Full review would be up soon.

I would love to know which your favorite brushes are as I still have a long way to go to complete my basic brushes collection. Let me know in the comments below and be an enabler, ha.

Hugs and Kisses,

FASHION ~ Printed Tights

I thought to do a quick fashion post today. Now, I am not one of the most fashionable person or all that shiz. I prefer wearing clothes I am comfortable in and I don’t mind wearing them till they are totally ruined. One of my favorite clothing item is tights and I am famously known as the girl who would wear tights under tees, dresses, kameez and just about anything. I can’t help it, I just feel so comfy in them and they are easier to move in. I can’t remember the last time I wore jean, and yes one of the reason for that is my ever increasing waistline, but who cares as long as you have comfy tights to roam around in, lol.

I went to Max in Carrefour Seeb last week and got meself some printed tights. I know the fashion is almost dying now but having never tried anything exciting other than the basic plain black, blue and white tights I was excited to finally buy some.

1419182797050

(In case it’s not clear – I am sitting on the bed’s edge)

The first one is blue jeggings also known as my usual attire. I love these as it gives you a feeling of wearing jeans while still being extremely comfortable. It is my go-to and on-the-run tights from about a month now.

The second one is an Aztec print tight. The material is thick and seems quite sturdy. I loved this print as it was simple and singular. I usually find Aztec tights with too many prints criss-crossing each other as such a put off so when I found these I knew I had to get them.

The third one is a floral print. I always found floral print to be too girlish and some were just too in your face kind of until I tried these. These are blue jeggings with pink flowers on it and are simply gorgeous.

I am so glad I picked these as they so comfortable to wear and acceptable almost anywhere, ha. I doubt I’ll be wearing anything else now until I am forced by mum. *argues – Dobby is 18+. Dobby is a free elf. Dobby won’t take new clothes*

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Happy Monday! 🙂

Ciao & Love,

Lately

Lately #6

I haven’t done a Lately post in about two months and I have missed writing about it but there wasn’t much going on in my life. Now however I am having a bit of fun so thought to blog. So let’s just dive into it 😀

IMG_20141023_152505

1- Mum’s The Best

I love coffee and enjoy trying a lot of different cafes but nothing comes close to the coffee my mum makes. It is heaven. I try making it like she does but I can never do so. She is just so amazing at cooking and everything food and drinks related.

2- Best Friend Always Know

My best friend Annayah gave me a late birthday present and it was a book, Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I loved the movie and I was crying over the book ever since I saw it in Borders. I was broke so I didn’t buy it and it was the last one in the store. Annayah bought it for me the next day and surprised me when we next met. I was over the moon. She recorded me while taking the gift squealing excitedly in the middle of the mall, ha. Best friends always know what makes you happy. I love you, Annayah, my reading partner. ❤

x and ultraviolence

3- Music

I know I am a little late but that’s always the case with me about almost everything. I downloaded X and Ultraviolence the moment they released but I didn’t have much time to listen to them because I was moving house. Now I listen to these two albums on repeat and I just can’t get enough. I might do a review post on both the albums. Tell me if you think it’s a good idea in the comments below! 🙂

4- On My Wall

ONE FRICKIN DIRECTION IS ON MY BEDROOM WALL!!!!!!!! Yaaaaayyy!!!!!!!!!! I can’t really believe this. FINALLY!!!!

I won two tickets from Hi FM radio of their latest movie premier and they were giving out posters. They gave it to teenagers but someone in VOX cinema management took some pity on me and gave me and my friend one too. Thank you, whoever you were, Mister Kind.

5- Working On

I did a blog post about a really huge Book Haul (CLICK HERE) I did a while back. I have now started working on reading those books. I read The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown some weeks ago. It was on my to-read list since years now. So glad I got done with it. 😀

Shopping

6- Shopping 😀

Last weekend was simply amazing. I shopped after a really long time. I am trying to make lists of important things I want and trying to go through them one at a time. Let me know if you want me to pop those wish lists on the blog often too. I would love to share and also know what’s on your shopping list.

I am so happy I am back to blogging my Lately posts. These are my absolute favorite to write. Let me know if you like them as much as I enjoy posting about what I’ve been up to.

Love yourself often and enough ❤

1- Obsession

Mr. Benedict Cumberbatch. This man, this effing man, is ruining my life. He is beyond any definition of perfect and I am spending my days daydreaming about him, watching and re-watching his interviews/series/movies, and drooling over his pictures, voice and mannerism.

I watched Sherlock thinking it will be an okay series and boy was I wrong. It is so well written and carried out. The dialogues, the acting, and the direction – everything is brilliant. Benedict has played Sherlock so well that I doubt I will ever be able to picture anyone else as Sherlock anymore (sorry RDJ!!!) I have watched this series so many times now that I can start a role play with you right now right here. Benedict is to be blamed for that and I must admit – I am Sherlocked and Cumberbatched ❤

IMG_20140904_022434

2 – Shop Till You’re Broke – My Motto

People are impulsive shoppers, I on the other hand am an aggressive shopper 😀 Too much brand loyalty towards H&M though. When I mentioned in my earlier ‘Lately’ post that I have lost count of how many times I have been to H&M lately, I did mean it. BTW, this is four months of shopping combined.

M&S Guilt Free Snacking Fail

3- Guilt Free Snacking Fail

At least once in a day I get a health conscious attack and I try to eat something healthy. I was at Marks and Spencer when I spotted this pretty box of Fruity Popcorn Bars that has bars made of apricots, cranberries and popcorn and each bar contains 95 calories. I bought them, gave them a try and there were four in the pack and I still have three left. Guilt free snacking fail.

Movies

4- Quality Time

For those of you who don’t know, my dad recently got a fracture in his femur and can’t really walk. He is under treatment and will start walking soon but for now he is home bound. He loves old movies so to cheer him up these days I’ve been watching some Bollywood classics with him and I must say I am having so much fun and spending some quality time with dad which I never get a chance to do. *habby!!*

Costa

5- Catch Up @ Costa

No matter how much I dislike Costa, if I am asked for coffee there I would say yes (though not next time). My brother, his girl and I met up for a quick coffee. Costa has just launched some new drinks and had a scratch and win offer. We ordered three Belgian Chocolate Creamy Coolers, two triple chocolate muffins, a chocolate wrap and a chicken Panini. The Creamy Cooler wasn’t really good. I was expecting something delicious but it was just too sweet for any of our liking. I got espresso shots added in mine to make it drinkable. Chocolate wrap and Panini were alright but looked a little stale and as always the muffins were great. I like Costa’s customer service though. They have a friendly staff.

6- Missing

I love Jim Parsons and his portrayal of Sheldon Cooper. I’ve been missing Sheldon so much from past few weeks that I really need him to come back to the tube right now. I hate season breaks. They make me miss people who do not exist in real life. #FanGirlProblems

Have a good weekend y’all!
