    Essie Sugar Daddy nail polish

    Essie nail polishes are quite popular in Parisian nail bars. This time I tested Essie Sugar Daddy nail polish. Pros: – Ideal for French manicure – Good choice for a wedding manicure – Suitable for spring/summer – Perfect if you prefer subtle and pretty nail polish Cons: – Since it has a thin texture, you need to apply several coats to see Sugar Daddy on your nails – If you aren’t a fan of nude look, I advise you to choose other colors To sum it up, Sugar Daddy is perfect if you wish to have manicured but not showy nails. Choose your Essie: Lookfantastic  Marionnaud

    My spring beauty case

    Every time when spring comes I have 2 problems: nothing to wear and almost all my makeup products have finished. While I’m still facing the first issue, the second one has been solved. This spring I decided to change my Clarins foundation for Dior BB cream for the reason that BB cream is much more lightweight which is perfect for warm Parisian spring. In addition to it, I also bought the Dior Nude Shimmer highlighting powder to fix my BB cream and have a long-lasting effect.  As for the lip gloss, I have been buying Clarins instant light natural lip perfector for 2 years now and I find it simply gorgeous! It’s…

    Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet, je l’adore!

    Hello girls, I have received a few emails from some of you asking what I think about Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet perfume that was actively advertised in the most famous fashion magazines last week. To tell you the truth, I like Dior makeup products, but I’ve never bought perfume of that brand. Actually, till last week I was sure that Parisienne of Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) is the best perfume ever!!! But to my surprise, I found Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet to be quite similar to Parisienne of Yves Saint Laurent: feminine, sexy, tender with a pleasant floral scent. In a word, this is what I like! After all, perfume…

    Aquabiking in an individual cabin: tested!

    It is difficult to find someone in Paris who hasn’t heard yet about a new concept of underwater cycling in an individual cabin, so I finally tried it! PROS – Flexible schedule: since it is not a group class, you can fix the most appropriate time for you – You choose the level of physical load and keep your own rhythm – It is like a getaway from a busy city to a desert island: you enjoy your own company – Sport and fun: while cycling you can either watch TV or listen to your favorite music CONS – For someone it may seem boring to cycle for 30-45 min…

    Natural beauty: face mask

    I have recently learnt a new face mask recipe which I have never tried before. The recipe is quite simple and all you need is one egg, a pressed orange and a spoon of yogurt. Mix all the ingredients and apply the mask, relax and wait 20 minutes, then rinse. If you don’t like homemade masks, I advise you to try natural masks of L’Occitane. I was always a fan of hand cream of this brand but some time ago I discovered Immortelle Cream Mask that I found to be a perfect face treatment.
