My Summer Essentials

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a lovely SUNDAY! Many of you are probably celebrating today with your families and your dad’s. I know I am, we are soon going to have a good home cooked lunch.

Yesterday I uploaded a new video on my Summer Essentials. This was a collaboration with Ashley Stoyko, make sure you can visit her channel. And we decided of putting together our Summer Essentials. We decided on choosing 5 but we couldn’t stick with that and we chose more. I based my Essentials around 7 different items.

#1 – BB Creams

I love applying BB Creams in Summer. I can also create a makeup look with only my BB Cream and ignoring the foundation step. In summer putting on foundation during the day is a little bit stressful especially on our Maltese Islands unless you set it will and have a good setting spray (which I will mention in my next essential).

My favourite BB Cream is the Rimmel 9 in 1 BB Cream. I have a review all about this you can visit it right here.

#2 – Makeup Setting Sprays

We all need this in our collection especially during summer. In winter I tend to forget setting my makeup with one of these but in Summer if I forget it, I regret it!

My favourite setting sprays are – the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, the Avon Mark Setting Spray and the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day Setting Spray in the Peach scent.

#3 – Crop Tops 

I live in crop tops during the summer. I mostly buy them from H&M and they just make a summer outfit pop! I love wearing them with high waister shorts and sandals.

#4 – Hats

The two hats I own are from H&M and Primark. I love running around with them, doing my daily errands. A hat is your best friend in summer .. that and sunglasses and sunscreen – we cannot forget those!

#5 – Bikinis

I don’t go swimming much and I prefer going to a pool rather than the sea. The irony is Malta is known for its sunny beaches .. so yeah. But of course I still go, sometimes but I go. And I bought these 2 bikinis I showed on my video last summer from ebay and those are the ones I am using this year!

#6 – Lip Stains 

I love matte lips but in Summer I prefer lip stains. They are so lightweight on the lips and leave your lips moisturised. They last all day and there’s no way you will need to reapply these. I love using the MUA Inked Lip Stain – I love their formula and they are so soft on the lips.

#7 – Summer reads 

I love lounging on the beach or the pool with a book. I think I prefer reading a book rather than going for a swim and getting my hair all tangled up either with sea salt water or chlorine!

I have plenty other summer essentials but I would say that these are my basics!

What are your summer essentials? 

I hope you enjoyed reading my blog post, thank you so much for doing so!

Happy Sunday!

Love Kezia

My favourite 5 Spring Essentials

Hi everyone,

Since we have crossed over onto the new Spring Season I thought of posting a Spring Blog Post. However, what’s better is that I will not be doing this alone.

This blog post is a collaboration with Deborah from Distorted Priorities.

She will be doing a post all about ‘3 Wardrobe Essentials for Spring’.  You could check out her blog post right here – http://distortedpriorities.blogspot.com.mt/2017/04/3-wardrobe-essentials-for-spring-ftsix.html

I on the other hand am going to be sharing with you all ‘My favourite 5 Spring Essentials’.

Spring Eye Palettes

Let’s start off with my favourite Eyeshadow Palettes that I love using during Spring. Now I can never choose just one so I picked 3!

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette

IMG_8319

This has such cute pink shades and light shadows. I love the shade called Divinity. I love using this to highlight under my brow bone!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette

I love the scent of this palette – so peachy! I love the peach, pink and purple shades. It also has those top 3 colours – Bless Her Heart, Tempting and Charmed I’m Sure – which are perfect for creating night time makeup looks too.

Kylie Cosmetics The Royal Peach Palette

This may be similar to the Sweet Peach Palette however I love the blue shade – Royal – which is a shade that I never had in my collection until I picked up this palette. I also love Seashell which is a metallic finish pink champagne.

Pastel Nail Polishes

I love using pastel shades on my nails! It just reminds me that the sun is coming out and summer is soon with us! I love all these shades here. I love essence Nail Polishes – I think they are one of the best formulas and are so affordable!

I get my nails done.  However, currently the Crunch Cake shade is the one I have on my toes.

Chokers

I know chokers have been in fashion for so long however I think that chokers are perfect for this season!

IMG_8328

Pair it with a crop top and ripped jeans and your favourite sneakers! There’s a casual look for you but you can use chokers for a night out outfit too. Picture a crop top and skirt and accessorise with a choker!

I bought all these from Ebay and the two underneath the floral choker were from H&M.

Spring Candles

Now I know that candles are usually for those cold months however, I love using these scented candles all year round to spice it up at home!

During spring I love putting on flower-y scented candles and here are the 3 that I will be lighting up these coming months!

Yankee Candle – Fresh Cut Roses

Kandle Handmade Scented Candles – Magnolia Bloom

Spring Perfumes

We can’t not include some perfume scents for Spring. I love putting on perfume whenever and wherever. These are the 2 that I shall be over using during these months.

Essence also do perfumes, did you know that? They both smell lovely and summer-y especially the Like a Million Miles Away Perfume.

Essence Like a New Love Perfume

And those were my Spring Essentials. Now you might be wondering why I have not included any lip favourites to wear during Spring. And the answer is because I will be doing a video related to my favourite Spring Lipsticks next Wednesday, so stay tuned for that!
