2015 Favorites~

2015 favs

It’s time for yearly favorites *yay* I don’t do monthly favorites so I had almost forgotten about this year’s favorite post too. So glad I read it over at some other blogs and realized I have enough time to squeeze in a post before 2015 is over.

I believe 2015 went by in a blur and I didn’t get a chance to try out much stuff but when I started looking back at old posts to gather my favorites I was amazed. Damn there was a lot. Without further delay let’s get started.


2015 Beauty Favs


I realize beauty wise I got around to using quite a bunch of stuff. I got to use two different foundations, different eyeliners, lips, mascaras and what not. Below are my favorites.

Liner – I am still stuck on my Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen in 01 Darkest Black. I’ve had it since 2014 and it’s still going strong for me.

Mascara – Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl has got to be the one for me. Perfect effect without crisping the eyelashes, what else does one want?

Foundation – Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hr Nude Finish Foundation because it saved me through the horrendous summer we had this year. Thank you, Rimmel, I am forever in debt.

Lip Liner – MAC Beet

Lipstick – MAC Ruby Woo


2015 Skincare Fav


I’ve been very bad with the whole skincare department this year. I am just glad I picked up The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment as it had helped a lot with blemishes.



Spritz wise Victoria’s Secret – Secret Escape Body Mist has been my bae this year and I doubt I will be falling out of love with this one anytime soon.


2015 Books Fav


I’ve been failing miserably at completing my goodreads challenge this year but I’ve got a few days in my hand and I hoping I’ll get it done in time. This year there has been just one book that I’ve wanted to reach out again and time again – The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. I loved it so much. I am linking my review of it so you can read me cry more about it in a detailed post. (CLICK HERE!!) My second favorite was All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven, but I haven’t done a review yet so I was thinking to save it for 2016. Oh well. I am highly recommending these two to everyone I know that includes you too.


That’s about it, guys. I will see you in my next post very soon! 🙂

Much Love,

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!

I realized I haven’t done a fragrance post in a while and thought it to be a good opportunity to write one. Today I am going to write about Body Mists.

Body mists are lighter scented, less concentrated formulas. They are used on your body to make it smell better after a shower or before going out or whenever you like it. I will count it as fragrance because they make you smell good and if bough with the same perfume, it can prolong the effect.

VS Body Mists (

Victoria’s Secret is one of the most famous body mist makers followed by perfumes of the same smell for quite a number of them. I own two of their body mists which I’ve used quite a lot over two years and it quite amazing I still have a lot left. Purely because I have neglected them for quite a while as I got distracted by a lot of other options.

These were my first ever purchase from Victoria’s Secret when it opened in Muscat.

1-      Lost in Fantasy – Brazilian orchid & kiwi

It was in blue packaging so it was quite obvious I’d check this one out first. Just one sniff and I was in love. It has a very tangy smell to it – like fresh flowers right from the garden – very refreshing for summer. The thing I liked the most was its name and that it had orchids in the background of the bottle which made it look really pretty. At RO 6 it was a must-have.

2-      Sexy Little Things – Tease Body Mist

The only reason I got this body mist was because its perfume was quite expensive, RO 23, and I wasn’t ready to buy it on impulse. I bought the body mist for RO 12 instead to try on for a while just to be sure if I really wanted it or was it just for the packaging. The perfume was coming in a black and pink bottle and it had a pump (I am old school) which was so very attractive but it was a very tiny bottle. So to spend RO 23 on it didn’t seem quite sensible to me.

I kind of had a love-hate relationship with this body mist. It has a sharp smell. Some days I would love it crazy much and some days I would see myself going for Lost in Fantasy or some lighter perfume. I am still not certain if I want to get the perfume.


I like the whole idea of a body mist. It can be used as a sample of the perfume you want to buy. You can try it on for a month or two and be certain if you like the smell or not, (as I did for Tease) though the perfume would smell stronger than the mist. VS perfumes are pricey so a body mist comes in handy if you want to make a decision.

Another reason why I like body mists is because we get really hot summers. The temperature goes crazy. So putting on a perfume is good but once you start sweating, the strong smell of perfume mixes with it and you kind of start smelling repulsive. Body mists have quite a faint smell, so you can refresh it after a few hours and they don’t make you smell gross.

I love Victoria’s Secret packaging. It is cute, girly and sexy, and seeing how long it can last I think I’ll be returning to VS soon to buy some more.

Which is your favorite body mist?
