LOLA Makeup Picture Perfect Liquid Foundation

I like my foundation as light weight as possible. I am not a fan of the heavy foundation or “cakey” look, so the lighter the foundation, the better.

Here is the product description of this LOLA Makeup Picture Perfect Liquid Foundation –


Beautifully lightweight and comfortable to wear, this radiant-finish foundation feels like a second skin.

An innovative pearlescent powder visibly corrects skin imperfections by reflecting broad-spectrum light whilst keeping the skin looking natural and fresh.

It also boasts oil absorbing properties which help minimise shine. The final result is perfect skin that looks like it’s been airbrushed and is front cover ready!

  3. The foundation blends in very easily and quickly.
  4. It evens out my skin tone, and leaves a radiant finish.
  5. This foundation is quite affordable at £19.95 for a 25ml bottle.
  6. I like that it comes in 6 shades – R001, B002, B003, R004, B005, B006. Mine is B005.

LOLA Makeup Matte Silky Finish Pressed Powder

I have loved the powder makeup for as long as I can remember. I like the way it can dramatically enhance the face. This LOLA Makeup Matte Silky Finish Pressed Powder is no exception. Here is the product description –


Suitable for all skin types, this matte translucent powder gives a final flawless touch and keeps you shine-free.

Micro-fine powders let skin breathe while oil absorbing micro-sponges combat shine. Its weightless, super smooth, breathable texture balances skin tone, helps reduce the appearance of pores and gives a soft-focus effect. SPF 10 helps protect against photo ageing.



  1. This pressed powder provides excellent coverage.
  2. I love the matte silky finish look.
  3. The packaging is a beauty.
  4. It comes in 8 shades – R011, B012, R013, B014, B015, R016, B017, R018. Mine is B017.
  5. This powder contains SPF 10, which is great.
  6. It is great for all skin types.

Product Review – Sweetness & Light Soya Candles

Once you step into my home, you would spot my love for candles. I have candles in every room. There is something I love about candles. Apart from the amazing fragrance that lingers long after the candles have been put out, there is just this thing about them that relaxes me; puts me in a good mood. So you can imagine how excited I was to try out these Sweetness & Light Soya Candles.

The candles here are Sweetness & Light Coconut Cream and Summer Breeze. I have been burning these for a couple of days now, and I love them. I am really impressed with the quality and the packaging of the candles. They look amazing, not like the regular candles we see around. They stand out even more with the unique personalisation. I have never had a candle with my name on it. Have you had one before?

I love them both but I prefer the Coconut Cream Candle. It reminds me of the beach holiday we had at Dubai some weeks ago. It takes me right back to the hot sunny days at the beach. Sweet memories.

  1. I love the packaging. The jars look great and the illustrations on them are very pretty.
  2. I love the personalised labels. They would be great as gifts, as you can personalise it as you like.
  3. They both smell amazing, especially the Coconut Cream candle.
  4. These scents are great for the summer season.
  5. There are over 10 scents available on the Sweetness & Light Scent Menu, so there should be a scent for everyone.
  6. They are quite affordable with prices starting from £7.50 for a small 9cl jar, £17.50 for a medium 20cl jar, a small trio for £21, a twin medium set for £34.50 and a large 30cl jar for £19.50.







I recommend these Sweetness & Light candles to all the candle lovers out there, in need of a personalised type of candle. You can add any message on yours. So it could be a name like I have done here, or a motivational message, house name, or anything. I think it is a lovely gift idea and I like that it leaves my entire house smelling amazing.

Style Icon – Prince

This post is a day overdue. I meant to write the post yesterday but I had no words. I kept staring at the blank screen, hoping the words would flow, but it just didn’t, so I gave up, thought I would just mention the death of Prince, a music and style god, on social media, and that should do. Then I had a rethink, I saw so many inspiration blog posts and articles dedicated to the legend, and I just knew I had to write a post, or leave to regret it. So here is my tribute to Prince…..


Prince Rogers Nelson first caught my eye with the song Purple Rain. There was something about that track that did it for me, and the music video, with him and his band rocking and rolling with the guitar, and there was the lady in the band crying. It was so moving, I can never forget that music video. I have been loving Prince since then, and Purple Rain, is still one of my favourite tracks today. Apart from his amazing talent as a singer and songwriter, he is also a multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actor, and a style icon. His style had no filter, he was stylishly unapologetic with his big hair, frilly lace tops, hip-hugging bell-bottoms, and makeup. However, the best part of his style was that he owned it every time. I found his self confidence very inspiring.


Speaking of Fashion being Art yesterday; Prince was the definition of Art! He had Art written all over him.



It is sad to come to terms with the fact that we have lost another legend. He left us way too soon, but I know for a fact that just like Michael Jackson, Prince will never be forgotten. There can never ever be another Prince, but I do see a lot of him in Lenny Kravitz, Janelle Monae, and D’Angelo. Prince’s eccentric fashion sense inspired many, and his death will leave a lasting hole in the hearts of millions of people. He will continue to live through his music and we will never forget his amazing fashion sense. He changed the face of fashion and music, 2 of my greatest loves, forever.


Rest in peace Prince.
