sometimes miracles come in pairs **

In life we wish for so many things. Some come true with a blink of an eye, while others need hard work to come alive, and then there are those wishes that all you have to do is just wait for the right time! these kind of wishes require a lot of patience especially when we know that it's worth the wait. Last year around this time I had one of my kept wishes come true in which I knew that after 9 months I was going to be a new mom ::^_^:: it was probably one of the most amazing moments in my life that was filled with tears of joy! then I got another surprise the kind that will make me a mother of adorable twins :) I was so happy during the whole nine months journey even during the times when I couldn't eat anything other than bread! and on Friday May 29 I knew that miracles sometimes do come in pairs ❤

I wanted my babies giveaways to be made with love - handmade :) - with a theme that ensembles "double the love" and "wishes do come true" so I ended up choosing a tag line that means "there was a beautiful dream that came true with a prayer ❤"

I hope all your dreams and wishes to come true and have a lovely Friday :)

Florals? for spring? GROUND BREAKING ..!!!

Greetings everyone :)

I hope you're enjoying this lovely time of the year as much as I am! Spring to me is just another excuse to indulge myself with florals, from clothes to scents to furniture and I can go on and on… but yeah that's how much I adore florals and flowers. Even though it's almost Summer (YAY!) there's still some time to enjoy the rest of Spring.
The other day I was looking for a floral scented bath products that's when I met Marks & Spencer's Floral Collection ❤❤

The first thing that caught my attention was the design - I tend to pay a lot of attention to small details :p and I love watercolor prints and designs - but when I smelled it!!! ooooh it was another story! I'm someone who is addicted to Rose water and that collection especially "Rose" smelled just like that! so I didn't really hesitated on buying it but unfortunately it was a new collection so most of the products of that collection were out of stock but I did get the Foaming bath and I do remember that there was a matching bag but I don't know why I didn't take it! After a while I needed to restock the foaming bath for a project that I was working on that I'll tell you about later ;) and when I went back to M&S there were a lot of products of the floral collection "Rose" but I didn't wanted to go so far I only took the foaming bath, body lotion, and spray.

Whenever I use any of them I feel like I'm in a field of roses, the smell is just so beautiful but not that heavy that you feel like you're choked by the scent. my favorite out of the 3 would be that foaming bath, it's really moisturizing and I use it as a shower gel :p and it's so good! The lotion I use it mostly for my hands, it provides a good amount of moisturizing but not an intensive one.
As for the spray I actually got it for linens and the room I just imagined the place turning into a field of roses and it's just the perfect Spring-ish smell! and as I expected it does fill my apartment with great scent, but the only downside to it is that it doesn't last for a long time! other than that I Loved it!

See you next time Lovelies! 
Have a nice day ✿

Recent Additions to my make-up ✿

Happy weekend everyone :)

I just want to say how much I miss blogging!!! it's been quite some time since my last post, but I've been recently going through a lot of changes in my life! and the biggest one is that I'm expecting new addition to my family ❤❤ so it's been a little bit of a challenge to sort things around especially TIME! But it's SPRING time - which is possibly my favorite time of the year, not too hot but not too cold and the flowers everywhere is just perfect! 

in this post I'd like to share with you my recent additions to my make-up collection! it's been a while since I updated my collection, so it's time to do so! I'm planning on trying new things every month because the 4 coming months are filled with celebrations! YAAY! So far my additions are: the Beauty Blender ❤ Gosh foundation, Dior mascara, H&M lip pen and eye pen.

Ever since H&M introduced their Beauty line, I've been wanting to get something I would just stare at every beauty product in their App and just hope to get it - but it looks like there are millions who had the same wish!! I wanted to try their blushes, bronzers, eyeshadows but nooo it was all out of stock!! But I fell in love with their "Beauty Pens" so I got one for eyes and one for lips!! the eye pen is a shimmery pink gold soft color, I've been using it in so many ways like eyeshadow, inner eye corner brightener, upper lip highlighter and sometime to give some sparkle to my lower lashes - it's obvious I love it! the lip pen is not red as it shows in the pics :p it's almost a hot pink it gives quite a good color, I sometimes use it for whole lips and sometimes just as a lip liner (it's hard to do so because it's huge!! :p) both were a good deal costing almost 2 BD each! Lip pen here - Eye Pen here 

My must have make-up item is mascara! I was going on a mascara hunt and I didn't have this one in mind but once I tried it I fell in love with it and I didn't hesitate to buy it! but theeeen reality hit me its color is kohl black! do you know what that means? it's the darkest thing I've ever tried which is good but when removing it OMG! it's the Panda situation!! I can't really say that I LOVE this mascara but it's not like I HATE it, it's a bitter sweet love :p I just need some more practice to master applying it!

but then again maybe I'm comparing it to my last one which was Lancome it was PERFECTION! I got it as a promo with a perfume and it was the best thing ever - it lengthens and gives a beautiful volume but sometimes when I needed more dramatic look I would use Givenchy. Both were amazing but I wanted to try something else! I got Dior (Diorshow Black out - Kohl)  for 17 BD, Givenchy ( Noir Couture 4 in 1) for 15 BD both from Sephora.

For a long time I've been looking for a beautiful foundation and when I decide to go get one and try them there was always a reason that I get back home empty handed!! and finally I tried this foundation from Gosh cosmetics - I love their products, I've tried nail polish, lipstick and eyeshadow and all were to die for! - and as I started using it I realized that it was a huge disappointment!!! first it's a light reflecting and I'm an oily skin kinda person, so you you can always expect a disco ball on my face after a while!! plus the shade was not the right match for me!! I give this foundation a lot of chances that I might have applied it an a wrong way!! and for the last time I'll be giving it a chance with THE beauty blender and I hope it won't disappoint me! I got it from lifestyle for around 8 BD.

 Last but not least is the Beauty Blender ❤❤ :p excuse my hearts because these are my very recent purchases I just got it last week and I can't wait to try them! I've been wanting to get one for a long time BUT it wasn't available here in Bahrain (my country) so I had to wait or order it online and I finally after searching and searching I found the perfect online shopping website that was actually a Bahraini so I thought YES I'll get it, then at the same time I went to Sephora and I saw a booth for the beauty blender! but of-course it was out of stock but I asked for how much they were and it was fate that made it out of stock because it was 1.5 BD more than the ones from the website (Mrs.Kim: so easy to order from and nice customer service!) so I ended up ordering these twins!! I'll let you know what happens when I try them. did you like it ? is it like what I imagine it to be?

so that's it for my newest additions and plans for the future are a new powder since mine is dyeing but I want to get another one because it was a favorite, whenever I use it I fall all over again but I want to try something else! is there a good competitor to MAC? I'm thinking of chanel or dior still haven't decided yet! what do you think?? and what are your recent additions?

have a nice day
