How are you all doing? I hope you are all taking care! Yesterday I did not upload but am uploading it a day late. I had a long day, I am finding myself to being tired and exhausted. I don’t know if it’s covid fatigue too besides everything that I am experiencing, we all have our stories. However, I still wished to write a Blogmas Day 4!
It will be short and sweet and I hope that tonight I will upload a new one.
All I wanted to share yesterday was how I uploaded a new video on my Youtube Channel about one of the storybooks from I heart Revolution X Disney collaboration! They created three storybooks – one of cinderella, beauty and the beast and the princess and the frog. These sets would be a cute gift idea for someone who loves all things Disney. And if you are from Malta like me, you can order from Lucy Makeup Store, as they just stocked them this week!
For today’s video I focused on The Beauty and the Beast Storybook and I created a very natural look but I do wish to go back and play with it using more colourful shades as it has a beautiful colour story!!
So here is the video, hope you enjoy watching!!
What did you think of the storybook and the makeup look?
That’s all for now, I hope to see you all later with a new Blogmas Post!
How are you all doing? I hope you are all taking care and staying safe from wherever you may be reading this!
Here in my country, autumn is not full of coloured leaves and cool air, yet slowly slowly, the climate here seems to be shifting. Slowly but surely.
I have changed my wardrobe from summer to winter, but am still wearing light-ish clothes.
One item which I started wearing again are joggers, especially during the night time. Last time I wore a pair of joggers when I went to get a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte – first time ever trying that out, have to admit was not my favourite, But yes a pair of joggers is an essential must have for your winter closet!
And I may have found three pairs of joggers that I am going to enjoy wearing in these upcoming winter months. And I wished to share these with you especially if you are on the lookout for a good, comfy pair of joggers.
They are from Femme Luxe Finery and you can check out their website for a variety of choices of joggers! I wish to say a big THANK YOU to FEMME LUXE for these items!
Here the joggers I got, I love them all. They all fit great, these are a size 6 and the sand ones are a size 8. However, the size difference was okay as joggers and their style are meant to be a little oversized! They are very comfortable and the material from the inside are cosy and soft too !!! I also love the colours they came in I definitely recommend joggers from Femme Luxe Finery!
I love them and I honestly have been living in them! But that’s the best thing is that you can dress them down to a casual stay at home outfit, but then also style them to a stylish outfit to go and get a starbucks PSL.
Thank you once again toFEMME LUXE for the opportunity to try out these joggers!
What do you think of joggers? Is a must have in your wardrobe?
Let me know in the comments down below!!
Thank you so much for reading! Thank you for your support!! Love you all and stay safe!!
I hope you are all doing well, taking care and staying safe! Life as we know it has changed, and it seems that we need to start seeing how to live and adapt to a new reality. I know that right now we may not be going out as we used to, though I am using this time in Quarantine to spend time with myself and get to know me more. That also includes my style, and am styling my wardrobe and adding new pieces.
Some pieces that I have added where in collaboration with Femme Luxe Finery. And today’s blog post is going to be a review on 4 clothing items from this brand. They have a variety of things, from Joggers to Loungewear and T-shirts.– which I know that we are living in right now!
I selected four items as I said and here are my thoughts on them!
The first item is a Loungewear set in a camel shade. I got mine in the size Small and the trousers fit a little big but will fix them. Yet I wish I got the top a little bigger as I love that baggy top! But it still went well together. The material, is not my favourite yet for a loungewear set it’s cute and comfortable to stay in whilst at home binge watching Elite on Netflix! It costs €22.95 and I like that you can buy them as a set!
The next clothing piece is this black dress right here. I paired it with a white strappy heel! I love this dress, the arms are so cutely designed! The only thing that was uncomfortable was the polo collar as it was a little tight, though it did loosen up once I wore the dress! This dress would be so cute to wear for a dinner date or a fancy party which I really want to go to right now – would give me a reason to dress up! The dress costs €22.95 and I think for the price it is worth it!
Another dress that I picked up was this wine number! It’s unlike anything that I have in my closet! I love the design of it, it comes with one sleeve and then you wrap the other side around! The skirt part at first I was like mmmm maybe not, but once I put it on, I loved the way the dress fit! It’s honestly a dress that represents glam and can be worn for lovely occasions! The dress costs €20.95 which is quite worth it!
I love this t-shirt, so happy that it has been added to my collection and will be wearing it a lot in the next couple of summer months! Not only do I like it’s material and it fits really well, but I love the slogan on the t-shirt and I stand by it! “In a world where you can be anything BE KIND!!!” It’s a quote that resonates me and it’s something that we should all remember, we are all human, words are so powerful, so it’s so important to use them kindly! It also reminds me of the beautiful Caroline Flack, let’s try and be kind to each other! The t-shirt costs €8,95!
So yeah! Those were the pieces that I wished to share with you all today! I think that overall, I loved what I received from Femme Luxe Finery!
I also wish to share that I uploaded a video about all these items if you wish to also see it 🙂
I would like to thank FEMME LUXE FINERY for the lovely opportunity to collaborate with them, and I look forward to our next collaboration!!!
Which was your favourite piece?
Thank you all for reading!! And thank you for all your support!!
Let’s see how much I will keep up to my blogging schedule, because if you didn’t know, I am trying to write up a blog post every Saturday!!
How are you all today? Me … not bad I guess, just a little confused. Malta is doing really well with regards to the COVID-19 situation, we even are getting some restrictions lifted starting from next Monday. Like clothes shops and shoe shops are reopening. You cannot go into changing rooms to try clothes or shoes, masks need to be worn and only a limited amount of people are allowed in the shop at once.
I mean it’s a start. Yet, I feel confused as to what I can do and what I cannot do. Like am I allowed to mix with other people? I mean I still live at home with my parents and brother, and well do not wish to put them at risk, so am practising strict isolation measures whereby I meet NO ONE. I mean I do go to work twice a week, and when I am home I take precautions and this means yes, that I don’t get any hugs … which I really miss !! I mean I do hug Nemo, she is my only proper contact and she’s not a hugger or a cuddler which makes it even worse.
This no hugging or cuddling is affecting me I think. Anyways point of the story, I am confused. Anyways, one thing I know how to do is pamper myself and I have found 3 products which have pampered me and made me feel better! These are the following –
#1 These are the Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner from Jo Hansford. I received all these items in the Lookfantastic Beauty Box I am subscribed too. I chose to subscribe to something like this, cos I thought …”hey it might introduce me to some new products.” And it has!!
So their scents might not be my favourite I felt that they were strong fruity scents but my hair did love them!! It was soft, shiny and not frizzy! I have highlights in my hair and these products did brighten them up and keep my lights ashy rather than go all brassy! Highly recommend you check this brand out!
#2 The next products is this Coffee Scrub!! I just featured this in my recent video on my YT Channel! I will link the video further down in this post!! I found this in the April 2020 lookfantastic box! OMG I loved using this! When I got out of the shower my skin felt super soft!!! I absolutely loved it!!! The only thing I do not like with coffee scrubs is how messy they can be! But so worth it!! It’s waiting for me in the shower to use it again!
#3 And my final product for today is this Starskin Face Mask! – OH MY GOD! IS ALL I HAVE TO STAY! First of all I have never used a sheet mask which includes 2 steps ! This one does! The first step was to use that capsule which came with pure camelia oil and I kinda used it all !! You only are meant to apply a little bit of drops but yes I used it all!! And then step 2 is applying the sheet mask! And let me tell you I can easily say that this is the best sheet mask I have ever tried in my entire life! Again, this was found in the April 2020 box of Lookfantastic and I loved it!!!! I highly recommend this mask!
YOU NEED TO TRY IT OUT! It gives you that pampered spa feeling!
Anyways, those were the three products I wished to share with you all for this week!! Have you tried any of them? Please let me know in the comments down below!!
Anywhos, that’s all for me today! Before I go I wish to share with you what videos I uploaded this week on my YT channel –
Last Weekly Vlog uploaded –
Then we had on Wednesday a full face of Primark Makeup tested out –
And then yesterday I uploaded my unboxing of the April 2020 Lookfantastic Beauty box –
It’s been so long since I last wrote on here, I guess I could not catch up with all the different platforms I have set up KezziesCorner. I also have a full time job and am doing a part time Masters, therefore, my time is already limited. I guess though, I do not have a problem with boredom as I do keep myself busy.
I wish to come back here and start writing again – I love writing and it is something I love doing to help me relax. Especially now with what everyone is going through and how quarantine is our new reality. With that said, I hope you are all taking care of yourselves and staying safe.
So, I was thinking, how should I revive my blog again? I post regularly on my Youtube channel and my social media – but I have this outlet so I need to use it, I wish to use it! So for now, I have decided to post weekly here, either I will post specifically on a product that maybe I wish to write about, or else like today, I will reflect back on the week that passed and share with you my reflections and the videos that I posted during the past week. How does that sound?
So yes, this week was quite a long week, had a lot of work and content come out but also was quite a heavy week full of emotions. Yet, on the positive side of things – as it’s important to reflect back on the positives to help support us – the reality in Malta with regards to the CO-VID 19 is doing very well as the amount of people infected with the virus is decreasing and people are recovering – so that is very good news for our island. So maybe some time soon, of course when the time is right, some restrictions may start to be lifted. So let’s keep hope alive and obeying the health authorities – we are going to get through this!!
So anyways, as I said this week lots of content came out, specifically –
My Weekly Vlog –
And my two beauty videos, which were –
So if you have some time to spare during your quarantine, then let me keep you some company!
For today, this will be all, but join me again next Saturday for some new content right here on my blog!!!
Until then, you keep taking care of yourselves and stay safe!
I hope you are all doing well! I bring with you Day 5 of Blogmas – I know that day 2 and 3 and 4 are missing but did not have enough time to write up posts and did not want to just share to not miss a day … if you know what I mean. Also, the air in Malta is quite heavy right now (for all of you Maltese you will understand me when I say this), I do not want to go into it on here, yet I had to just acknowledge it as yes Malta is passing through a heavy period and I hope time will heal and justice will be served!
Anyways, let Blogmas bring some Christmas Spirit to my life and I also hope that it will bring some Christmas Spirit to yours.
Today’s Blogmas is my Christmas Wishlist of 2019. (Hint hint Luke if you are seeing this … :P)
Before, I get started I am mostly doing this for Blogmas purposes and probably most things I will save up and get myself.
What is your Christmas Wishlist this year? Please do share as I love interacting with you guys and after you reading my wishlist it is only fair that I read yours!
Ok … so let’s begin!
#1 – iPhone 11 Pro
Ok so I actually bought this for myself last Friday ~(on Black Friday) and it was a purchase that I did weeks and weeks thinking about it. I have never had an iPhone before so basically I lost my virginity to iPhones now.. and it was a decision in which I weighed the pros and cons of getting it or not. One of the pros was that I finally use the apple OS and get rid of the android OS which to be honest bored me out and I felt stuck at times when trying to install a new app that edits insta stories in such a way but I could not as it was not available on android … BOO!
The cons mostly was the price cos geez louise the apple people are making it espensive! Though then the pro that outweighed everything was THE CAMERA … wow the camera is better than my Canon 1200D SLR !! I am actually debating whether or not to try and film a video on my iPhone, what is stopping me is that I will have to stick it on the ring light tripod thing and if it falls I will have a very sad end of year!
Anyways … did I make a good decision for myself at this point in time? Yes I did and am loving the OS! From the button sounds, to how fast it is, to finally downloading FILMM of Zoe Sugg (then sadly realizing I have to pay a subscription to use all the features) and finally to the CAMERA which when I took my first portrait photo I was just amazed! I still need to use it some more and explore but so far I love it!
I think the funniest moment so far was when I was at a Gestalt Workshop, and it was my first time taking it out and I lowered the volume but then realized … erm….why is it still making the sound??? And no matter how many times I checked whether the sound icon was fully lowered it still made sound … at this point I ended up talking to myself and showed my frustration of WHY AREN’T YOU SILENT! And then my savior came as the girl sitting next to me showed me this really cool feature I had never seen before, apparently on the side there exists this button thing which you push up and down to make it silent or not …. I WAS AMAZED!!! Historical moment so far me and my iPhone!!
P.S. One thing was going to stop me from purchasing this phone … I wanted it in Gold but they only had the Silver in 64GB, then I was going to choose the Purple iPhone 11 but they did not have the colour so I am like erm .. for a little more moneys I will get a better camera …SOLD.
#2(something a little cheaper) Snake Print Ankle Boots/White Ankle Boots
I already have an outfit in mind … white winter cosy sweater which is a little baggy paired with blue maybe ripped and a white beanie paired with SNAKE PRINT ANKLE BOOTS (preferably in a grey shade) …. I think I would like that. And also, the heel would be a box heel. I see that snake print is in fashion so I want to follow the trend … NO …. I just like them ok and I do not own anything which is snake print … so maybe unconsciously yes seeing that I am not on trend and want to try and be on a trend!
I also love White ankle boots also with a box heel … so either or I would love to add in my shoe collection. In Winter I live in Jeans so I would not mind mixing and matching with different boots !!
#3 Velvet (Padded) Headbands
OMG I have been seeing these everywhere – on celebs like Jessica Alba to the Duchess of Cambridge sporting a padded ZARA headband. The shade I would want it in is either maroon or a dark green – I think that paired with a velvet skater dress (which I do not have) some black tights and black ankle boots would look so cute. Oh and of course wearing a coat because it is winter … supposedly. i say supposedly because Malta is still very warm and you sweat if you try and wear a jacket right now.
(Also after searching a little I also can see that it is one of the hottest must have accessory to have this season!)
#4 Beaded Hair Clip
I have been seeing these worn everywhere. There another Hair Clip trend of the season. I now am seeing ones with words on them too! I guess this was like the seashell choker that was on trend last Summer. Yet I kind of really want to try this beaded hair clip trend simply because when it comes to styling hair … I AM HORRIBLE AT IT! But this is easy, just clip it on and head out and voila you have a cute setting!
#5 Minor in Astrology Palette
I love colourpop … I love Kathleen Lights (she was one of the first beauty youtubers I started watching) and I love all the collaborations between them .. I collect them all and love them all! A few days ago Kathleen Lights released a new collab where she built her own palette with 24 pans with warm-toned neutrals together with popping rich jewel tones. I love how she uses astrology in her collaborations so yes I would love to try this out!
#6 2 in 1 Curler and Straightener
I seem to be thinking a lot about my hair this year! I need a bit of an updated straightener and curler as I find that the ones I have are a little old and do not give the same results as they used to. I had once seen at Primark a 2 in 1 Hair Curler and Straightener but they did not have any in stock. From the reviews I read it looked good but never got my hands on it. Though yes do you guys know any good ones? I also still need to learn how to curl my hair using a straightener rather than a wand — yet i do not want to try on my current straightener as it is not made for that … I think … cos it will damage my hair ? Or am I making things up?
And that is my Christmas Wishlist for 2019.
Again I would love to know what’s yours!!!
Thank you so much for reading!! And thank you all for your constant support!
I hope everyone is doing great! It’s official, Malta Fashion Week 2019 is OVER! Yesterday there were the fashion week awards – congratulations to all the nominees and winners!
Today, I am sharing with you this post on the last fashion show that was on Wednesday! It was truly one amazing show by Ritienne Zammit.
Ritienne Zammit participated in Malta Fashion Week before and back in 2017 when I attended my first fashion week I had seen her show and had enjoyed it – the outfits were stunning and as a designer she is amazing! As Malta Fashion Week’s website states, “Ritienne’s dark edge implores to be seen beneath the historical motifs, strong political messages and poetic metaphors, on which her collections are strongly based.”
An interesting fact about Ritienne – She was awarded,‘The Most Outstanding Student of the Year’ Award 2009-10 at MCAST Institute of Creative Arts in collaboration with the Malta Society of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce as well as the ‘New Designer Award’ in 2013 at the Malta Fashion Awards.
My thoughts on the show …
WOW ….. just WOW!!!! I was amazed at her show, at her designs, at the hair, the makeup, the jewellery (by Yana’s Jewellery!). She had a dog in the show and then she had a baby! She had an amazing Queen and King! My god her designs, featuring feasts which are a Maltese Tradition in her outfits she created! She took me to Game of Thrones vibes too, I just was in awee throughout the show! Here are some pieces which struck me –
Follow Ritienne on her social media and visit her website –
What do you think of the pieces? Aren’t they STUNNING!?!?
Thank you all so much for reading!! And for all your amazing support! I just have one more post to upload on Fashion Week, that’s of my final outfit at the event! I am just waiting for the photos from the photographer, once I have them I will share my post with you all!!
Until next time!
Want more info, details and updates on Malta Fashion Week, check out their website and Social Media! –
How are you all today? I hope everyone is doing great! And I hope that you are enjoying my blog posts! I truly missed writing here and I need to get back to it as it is something relaxing to do! Though I miss recording videos for my Youtube Channel but once Fashion Week finishes I will surely get back to that source too!
Today I will be sharing with you all what I wore on Day 6 of Malta Fashion Week 2019. As you know all my outfits are from New Look Malta, I just love the brand and it truly reflects back on me, my personality and my style that I have developed into!
The outfit I chose for today’s shows was one which I loved. I love my crops tops, but this included a top with string straps, and I just loved its colour and its design! A VERY comfortable trousers which were made of linen and had the paperbag trousers style, paired with nice button detailing. From this outfit I just loved the STRAW bag!! I know how in style they are and you just need to have one in your closet! I also had a jacket which was a very casual white blazer which makes the look together.
What I am wearing …
Top – I could not find the exact top online however, found the closest one – Linen Blend Crop Top (New look Malta outlets should still have the top in my photos still in stock!)
I hope you all are doing well, and having a great week. On Monday, I attended my third show at this year’s Malta Fashion Week.
As you know after each show I come back and share my thoughts on how the day’s shows went, and this blog post is just that! There were a total of three shows from – Gabrielle Fenech to Ocantos from Argentina and finally the shows ended with a show from Parascandalo!
Fenech launched her self-named brand in 2015. Her brand
offers, “Beautifully unconventional fashion for audacious and eccentric
individuals”. Her pieces take on a classical tailoring style with a hint of
glamour and sass. To quote Malta Fashion Week’s website, they describe Gabrielle’s creations as, “easily
wearable and feminine, while at the same time bold and empower.”
What is interesting is that Gabrielle’s brand is influenced by cult-societies, history and music and her collections try to tell a story and take its viewers on a journey either through the streets of Valletta or on runways at Fashion Week.
Gabrielle debuted her new collection of 2019 inspired by The Lovers tarot – L’Amoureux.
My thoughts on the show …
I loved Gabrielle’s collection! I especially loved the pieces where you had like a dungaree. I also loved the colours she chose and the designs she went for. She had t-shirts with great designs and they are so wearable. A colour that struck me most was the dark green glitter fabric which I noticed was a key colour through her L’ Amoureux collection! A lot of numbers caught my eyes and these are just a few!
fashion designer was from Argentina. His name is Eduardo Gonzalez Ocantos who is a lawyer, filmmaker, painter and
designer. As you can see a man with many talents! He shared his artwork in
different countries in the past ten years such as Italy, France, Montenegro,
Mexico, Malta and many others! What is interesting is that he is also working
around culture and wants to bring over more Latin American designers in Milan.
To quote an interview he
La Nacion, taken by Flor Bibas, he said that he does
not, “feel like a fashion designer” but he just likes, “to play, experiment
with textures and objects.” He likes using emotions and loves expressing
himself through his pieces.
My thoughts on the show …
I truly saw the artist in this designer. His pieces were so colourful and just gave me a sense of happiness when looking at them! I loved the pieces which had a bow tie, gave a sense of fun to the outfit too! Here are some pieces that I loved in the show –
Marco Parascandalo who is from Birgu, is well known for being the
creative mind behind his self-named fashion brand – Parascandalo. Parascandalo
is a local brand that is well known for Marco’s distinctive take on streetwear.
The brand has gained so much popularity. I personally loved his show back in
2017 and I still remember that denim jacket that I would have loved to get and
add to my personal wardrobe. (Due to finances, Kezia could not haha)
In 2014, Marco took part for the first time at Malta Fashion Week and after the show, everyone wanted to wear his collection, a.k.a. Skandlu! To quote from Malta Fashion Week’s website, “Marco pays special attention to the wearability and durability of his items” and he, “integrates aspects of Maltese culture, politics and environmental issues into his pieces to produce a very modern melange, the ultimate social commentary in motion.” The brand was such a hit that Marco has also gained international recognition.
At this year’s Malta Fashion Week, his show is around his new Spring/Summer 2019 collection entitled, “EYECONIC”. I need to save up and pick out something, as I need a piece of his in my wardrobe this year! I just love his designs, especially since they are wearable in everyday outfits! And, just to add that wearing them I would imagine that they would give me confidence and a sense of cool-ness!
My thoughts on the show …
Parascandalo’s show was AMAZING. He truly surprised us as he did not show one collection but two! We had a peak into his summer as well as winter 2019 collection !! I loved the pieces he created, his Eyeconic Collection was itself ICONIC! The colours, the styles, the patterns and the designs … everything just meshed with each other! Here are some pieces that I absolutely LOVED.
What I also enjoyed about his show was that he collaborated with Oxygyn. They are a Maltese band composed of sibling duo Kurt and Katia. The group’s aim is to share great music with a message; one about the nature of humanity and the society which surrounds it. Check out their social media and definitely go listen to their song – BLINDFOLD!
It’s been a long time since I posted over here on my blog and it’s about time I start again. It’s 2019 which means it is a NEW YEAR, so I wish you all the best for the New Year. I have decided that I will be posting once a week right here on my blog so stay tuned for weekly posts every Friday!!
Today’s post is on a Moodmask that I tried from Patchology. The brand is a skincare brand and revolves around creating products which, as I quote them, “will not only fulfil their promise, but fit your life.” They also use the quote – “beauty at the speed of you” and it’s the inspiration for everything they do.
To all my Maltese readers, the website does ship internationally including our home land!!
I would like to thank Push Pr for these products and for introducing me to the brand! Patchology have created this bundle of three sheet masks which are all Moodmasks and are entitled as – Get Dewy With It, Just Let It Glow and The Good Fight. These masks are set to help your skin, by helping in removing any impurities. You can get these masks as a bundle or separately right here – https://www.patchology.com/moodmask-sheet-masks#
The masks are all sheet masks which in my opinion are quite convenient, as they are easy to apply and remove! The one I decided on using was the Get Dewy With It. And so in this post I will be talking to you about that one. However, if you wish to see a review on the other two masks, then let me know and I will do a separate blog post on them!
The Get Dewy With It sheet mask revolves around helping your skin be hydrated as “Hydrated skin is healthy skin.” What I liked most about this mask is it includes Hyaluronic Acid which helps your skin stay hydrated and I love my hyaluronic acid!! It also includes Rose of Jericho, Hijiki Algae, Honey and Prickly Pear to further make sure that you will get dewy skin!
Since this is a sheet mask, in my opinion as I said it’s easier to use but also faster to apply. Simply unfold the mask and place it onto your face making sure you get the best fit possible. And then you can go lay on your bed and leave it on for 10 minutes. I left it on surely for more than that as I loved the cooling sensation that it was leaving me with. When you want to remove the mask, simply remove it gently and then rub in the excess serum that you are left with into your skin. There is no need to rinse it off, just let your skin absorb all the goodness that this mask has!
After I applied the mask, I loved how my skin looked, it was glowing and it was dewy as it said. And even after 3 days my skin still felt hydrated. I personally do not drink enough water so this helped a lot. But I should start drinking more water everyday. I would recommend this mask as it has great results but also it’s so easy to use and to apply and to remove. So it would be a good mask for one of your pamper days and it’s only $5!!
Have you ever tried things from Patchology? Let me know!!
Thank you so much for reading, really appreciate it !!!
