May 2014 Favorites!

A belated monthly favorites post, but who cares it's the content not the date that matters... right?

Picked two shades (N 5 and N 6) from Heathrow airport and they've become my two favorite go-to eyeliners. The blue shade is the complete dupe for the Chanel eyeliner that I talked about in my March favorites, and this bronzey shade is like having a Maybelline's "Bad to the Bronze" in a slightly darker eyeliner form. Both great pencils that can be used as eyeliner or as shadows, perfect for days that I can't be bothered with makeup. The lasting power is also awesome, which makes me love them even more! 

Dali nail polish "Something Blue"

My dad actually picked out this polish when we were browsing around Carrefour a couple of weeks back. We had just finished up a father daughter lunch at Roadster on a chill Sunday when we headed to the supermarket to get some groceries. I obviously headed to the makeup section to see if there was anything interesting. My dad walked by and liked this Dali shade, so I got it. I have literally been wearing it ALL month. It needs a couple of coats or a white base coat to get the true color, but once you get there it's the most gorgeous shade of pale blue. I shared it on Instagram, and most of you guys liked it as well!

Maybelline Go Extreme Mascara

Dare I call this the best mascara ever? I think I just might. All my favorite mascara's have been by Maybelline, so I was super excited when I heard they're launching the new #GoExtreme Collossal Mascara in Lebanon. This baby is the best. The wand is easy to use, the brush is the perfect shape and you can keep layering and layering until tomorrow without ANY clumps. MAGIC! SORCERY!

If you've never smelled a Chanel product, please head to a department store right now and give them a sniff. Apart from being an amazing natural bronzer (which I use for "contouring" in the winter months), the smell is just fabulous. The compact is also obviously very luxurious, and I feel so special when I pull it out to check if all is well on my face.

I'm so addicted to this boggle like app that I see letters in my dreams and start making words. It's a problem, but I love it. Plus I get to learn new words every time I play it!

The Originals

I watched a whole season of Vampire Diaries but I never really got into it. Nina just kept reminding me of Degrassi, and the whole girl stuck between two guys thing was a bit too Twilight for me. After the big success of the show though, they came up with a sister  show for Vampire Diaries called "The Originals". My friends kept telling me that I should watch it, and that Klause is so hot yatita but I just didn't see the hype. One weekend, I was utterly bored and felt like watching a new series so I decided to give it a shot. Guys, I went on a bender and watched 13 episodes in two days. It's still not my favorite show ever, but it was definitely my favorite of the month! Ps. I love Elijah :)
