My Surprise Box – The FIRST Beauty Box in Mauritius ♡


Have you ever watch these YouTube video or read blog posts about these beauty boxes which contains all kind of sample size makeup and skin care products? I have and always wished that such company should open in our little island. Well, guess what? It finally happened! We have our own Beauty Box!!!


Don’t know what My Surprise Box is? I’ll tell you a little more about how it works! My Surprise Box is a monthly makeup/beauty/skincare/ accessories subscription box. Every month a cute box of makeup arrives at your door. You can choose the type of subscription you desire, starting as from 1 month to 12 months). The price also ranges from Rs.985 per month to more interesting offers for longer subscriptions.

Tempted yet to try the box? 


This month’s beauty box hit the theme “Independent Women“. I love how the box is inspired by two powerful days:  Mauritius recently celebrated it’s 50th Independence Day on the 12th March and we all celebrated International Women’s Day on 8th March.


Beautifully and carefully tied with a ribbon, I couldn’t wait to open my box right away when the postman rang my door. It was the hardest thing ever to wait a whole day and night, to finally open it on camera. Watch the video here.

I haven’t tried any of the products yet, except for the perfume which I tried on camera. It smells DIVINE, my mom wants to steal it from me already. Be sure to check my March Favourites at the end of the month/beginning of April- and maybe one or two of the products will be featured in it.

Lovin’ Lately

Hi loves! Hope you’re having a great extended weekend so far!  Today, I wanted to share with you guys some of my February favorites- let’s do this!!


Favorite #no1


First off, I have combination skin, an oily ‘T-zone’ with some dry skin surrounding those areas. To be honest, I was attracted to the packaging and when I saw aloe water-based moisturizer, I had to buy it. The product is clear and definitely liquid/watery. After applying a VERY small amount I like how fresh and light scent is, how it feels so smooth on my skin & it soaks into my skin right away. I tell ya, a little goes a LONG way! My skin feels super hydrated and I love how healthy looking my skin looks ALL DAY when I don’t wear any makeup. I can’t say that it felt like it really lasts 72 hours (as it says on the packaging), but it lasts a lot longer than other moisturizers I’ve tried and that I will re-purchase again.

Favorite #no2


Inecto is a British brand that offers cosmetics made with 90% of natural ingredients. They also happen to be vegan-friendly and not tested on animals. A great start!


Now, I can say that this one is my favorite! Among all the brand Inecto products that I’ve tried, I have a huge crush on this body lotion with argan oil. Do I really need to say it smells heavenly? But the real power of this product is that it’s rapidly absorbed without leaving any greasy or oily film, despite a moisturized skin! I used to hate putting on body lotion after my shower, but not anymore.


The body scrub is white in color and contains a lot of granules. It has a rich fragrance of coconut which I absolutely love! The body scrub has to be applied to the damp skin because when if applied on dry skin, it will get dry and left a patchy residue. The granules are coarse so I would avoid using it on the face. The scrub can also be used for dry feet or just before shaving your legs as it will help to get rid of the ingrown hairs.


Favorite #no3



Do you also sometimes feel too lazy to detangle your hair at night and sleep with wet hair? No? Just me? Okay.

The product is in liquid consistency and comes in a transparent spray bottle packaging. It was one of the biggest highlights as it does not make my hand messy (cheers for spray bottles). When the bottle is left unshaken the product is in two layers, the top one being opaque beige liquid and the bottom one a translucent golden colored liquid. The bottle needs to be shaken before use so that the contents mix well. The product had a mild fragrance which did not appeal in particular to me and it lingers on for some time.

When I brush my hair after using this product, it feels more smooth and manageable. I have been using it every time I wash my hair for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. You can use it on wet or dry hair- plus it acts as a conditioner for my hair which I won’t complain.


Favorite #no4


If you know me, you’ll know that I LOVE my highlighters and I abused on them. I love the glow you can build up, even when I don’t wear any makeup, I always put a little highlighter on when I go out. I wanted to own this one from Maybelline so bad but unfortunately, we don’t have it yet in Mauritius. WHY WHY WHY? So, when my cousin was going to England for a business trip, I didn’t lose any time to ask her to get me this beautiful baby.


This dense powder highlighter leaves you with a metallic finish wherever you apply it on your face (or body, you choose).  It works best with a light fluffy fan brush for a subtle shimmer or a denser stippling or blush brush for way more pigment power. Either way it blends fantastically and I feel as shiny and new as a metallic disco princess. The packaging is nothing extra, just plain drugstore packaging type but the product is AMAZINGLY BLINDING!!!


That’s it for this month’s favorites, beautiful people! I would love to know what’s your favorite and maybe try some new products. Feel free to comment below or DM me on Instagram.


Long Distance – My Story & How to survive

2015-12-23 12.59.27 1.jpg

I get asked a lot about how I’m able to maintain a long distance relationship. For those of you who don’t know, I have been in a long distance relationship with my now-fiancé, Jibran, for over 2 years now. I live in Mauritius and Jibran was living in Cape Town, South Africa since 2013 (Jibran is back for the moment). Our relationship consisted of lots of scheduling to make sure we have quality time despite being far away. Yes, it’s difficult, but it’s doable and the distance means nothing when you know it’s going to be short-lived.

We decided to give LDR a-go on the 18th November 2015 – the day we met for the first time. Neither of us ever had a long distance relationship before, but we were willing to put it to the test. So what did we do?! Said eff it and ignored all odds and hoped it wouldn’t be an issue down the road.

2016-01-08 10.54.52 1.jpg

Let me make this very clear. Long distance is not for everybody. It’s a lot of work and will absolutely test your relationship in ways it normally wouldn’t. We’ve come to appreciate the small things and not think twice about fighting over small things that don’t matter. In my heart, I knew I had found the one when all the miles in between didn’t mean a thing and realized distance really does make the heart grow fonder.

TBH, we enjoyed being in a Long Distance Relationship even if the most challenging aspect was the fact that we couldn’t see each other as much as we wanted to. We would meet twice a year during our holidays for approximately 4 weeks. On a positive side, being in a LDR, gave us the time to focus on our studies and on our projects. We cherished every moment of our vacations to catch up, to go on adventures and to get to know each other better.


I recently asked my followers on Instagram if they would like to read or had any questions about LDR and you guys sure had a ton of questions. So, Jibran and I sat down on Wednesday to read all your questions while sipping on a coffee to answer almost all of them. I’ve put together a few of my own tips on how to maintain a long distance relationship. Maybe some of you who are struggling with your own relationships, whether you are in a  long distance or not, you can pick up a few tips to help you! I am not a relationship doctor of any kind, but I have found these things worked great for my relationship.

2016-01-08 01.41.33 1.jpg

Communication. Communication is by far the most important aspect of any relationship, especially long distance. Jibran and I would constantly text throughout the day. As soon as I opened my eyes I would send him a simple text that says, “Good morning!”. A couple hours later (because of the time difference) he would reply back with a good morning text as well. He would have a very different schedule than mine, so I never blew up his phone in case I woke him up. We all need our sleep! It’s nice to start the day by letting your partner know you’re already thinking about them.


Throughout my day, it was tricky to text frequently because most of the time I used to be in lectures, working on assignments but every couple hours I tried to let Jibran know what I was doing and just to let him know that I’m thinking about him. At this point in our relationship, he knew that I was busy and never harassed me and hit me with the,“Where are you?” texts. He knew that I’ll get back to him when I can and vice versa. He was always at the hospital, with patients or in lectures but still, he always did his best to keep me posted on his day.

As the day came to an end and I would get home from uni, I would toss in a Whatsapp call or even Skype (bonus if both were free!) to recap the day. We used to study together on Skype till late and sometimes would even watch a movie together and workout together. These small actions only made our relationship more fun and stronger


The point I’m trying to make is that we would constantly talk/text even when we didn’t have much to say. It helped us to feel involved with each other’s day, almost as if we lived in the same city. Just because you may live in the same city/country as your partner doesn’t mean you should communicate less. I would treat my relationship with Jibran exactly the same even if we lived in the same city and it should never be taken for granted.

story ldr.jpg

Trust. A relationship is nothing if trust isn’t present. Actually, Long Distance Relationship requires even more trust than regular relationships according to me. Long distance can make some people go crazy. Who are they with? Why aren’t they texting me back? Why aren’t they picking up their phone? If you’re constantly asking these questions then you’ll easily drive the relationship into the ground because you’ll start to sound like a nagging person. The naggier you are, the less your partner will want to share with you. As a result, your partner may become distant and you might find yourself turning into an overreactive, crazy person…and that’s just not healthy.

To avoid all this chaos you have to trust your partner is doing exactly what they say they’re doing and vice versa. Trust and communication really do work for hand in hand and you can’t have one without the other. If you know that you have communication and trust issues then perhaps long distance isn’t for you, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Some relationships are meant to last for a short amount of time and to teach you a life lesson. If you really do feel like this is the relationship for you then you will do everything you can to make sure it lasts. I promise!


Voice out your fears and feelings.I know, it can be awkward and uncomfortable for both of you to pour your heart out on the phone. But you cannot be afraid to express how you feel if something is bothering you if you feel you don’t get enough time to communicate with your other half. Because, if you bury all your feelings, at some point you will explode and it will be a huge mess to clean up.

Arguments. All relationships are hard and arguments are natural. Two individuals will have different opinions and choices. You have to respect your partner’s opinion, you have to be understanding and more importantly, you have to compromise. You will have to learn how to argue in a productive way so that at the end of the discussion you find a solution which will benefit both you instead of yelling at each other. (Ofc, I am in no way saying that you should stay quiet and support wrong descisions, that’s a whole different situation).


Remember, even if you don’t excel in some of these areas you can always grow to become a better long distance partner. Stay realistic, because these relationships will require extra attention and extra everything. It’s going to be challenging at times, but overcoming these challenges will make your relationship stronger every day.

How many of you are in long distance relationships?

We tried to answer as many questions as possible and to categorize them all in topics. I hope you enjoyed this blog post, let us know in the comments below.


Lovin’ Lately

Hello girls, 

Happy Sunday! I decided to bundle up together some of my favorite products from the past 4 weeks. For the time being, I’m not sure if this should become a monthly series or not. Do let me know in the comments below or on my Instagram. Love to know your thoughts/suggestions.

Unfortunately, no makeup products (except for one eyeliner) will be listed today. In summer, my skin goes crazy. As soon as I step out of the house, my face sweats so much (more than a regular person)! I don’t know why but somehow it is only my face that sweats that much. I rarely sweat under my arm or any places where normal people would sweat. Anyone like me here? This is why I have been staying away from makeup during the summer to avoid looking like : 

Image result for makeup melting gif

Instead, I have been focusing more on skincare – nighttime skin care to be more precise. I load up on moisturizer, lotion put on sheet masks, acne creams, and aloe vera gel to replenish and hydrate the skin. 

After a long day, all I feel like doing is: take a good shower, to smell good and sleep. This month I have been loving the Noix de Coco Shower Gel from Yves Rocher. The tropical scent stays on your body for hours and who wouldn’t love to smell like coconut?


I use to think that I will start having dark circles when I’m 25 and boy, I was SO wrong. It seems that one night they decided to pay a visit and never left. Instead them dark circles family settled down.  The Roll-on soin contour yeux, anti-cernes & anti-poches  which I got from Intermart, has been a blessing to my eyes every night for the past 4 weeks. TBH, my dark circles didn’t fade and I know that it won’t just magically disappear. 

roll on 2I love it because of the icy gel feeling. Every night I feel like my eyeballs are on fire when I use this product. Not only it refreshed my eyes but the roll-on thingy helps to massage my under eyes and the gel actually leaves your skin hydrated.

If you guys know me for a long time, you will know that I love wearing eyeliner. It can be tricky if you are a beginner but I promise, keep practicing girl! I have a video on Youtube where I showed step by step on How to achieve perfect eyeliner. You will get the hang of it and will slay the cat eye.


I heard this product from my best friend, Ziah. She has been raving about the Bourgois Liner Pinceau so much that I had to try it when I was at her place. And I loved it!! Personally, I wouldn’t recommend it to beginners because of the brush but instead for a “feutre” one (like this). You can easily go overboard and as it’s ULTRA BLACK, you will need a good makeup remover so that you don’t end up looking like a panda trying to fix the mistake. 


As much as I love carrying my room with me when I go out, I hate carrying heavy bags. I am so lazy that sometimes I won’t even carry my wallet and phone with me. Thank you Jibran’s  pants’ pocket and mum’s bag. However, if I have to carry a clutch or sometimes you just need one to complete an outfit, I have been going for my new burgundy clutch which I got from Accesorize around December last year.  The simplicity in this clutch and the gold details are just how I like my accessories.

Finally, to end this Lovin’ Lately series, let’s talk about clothing. Do you also have these days when you don’t feel like dressing up but still want to look put together? Well, this is the perfect piece that I think you should include in your wardrobe. For real, this embroidered jean marries perfectly with a simple plain tee-shirt for this casual look or with a mustard color shirt (don’t have to be this particular ofc) and a pair of wedges. You are good to go for work, ladies!

Wedges: Ipanema

And that’s it for this week! Let me know if you enjoyed this article in the comments below. Should I make it become a monthly series? Share your thoughts with me…C’mon!!!

9 Steps to be A MORNING PERSON

I never thought I would say this because I always used to stay up till late at night and wake up when the day was half over.

I mean, c’mon what’s better than the warm, soft and comfy bed- it’s a place that’s pretty difficult to leave in the morning.

During my university days, I used to be a night owl, I used to be more productive only when everywhere was quiet and calm. However, the game changed ever since I started working. This new chapter of my life forced me to put the alarm at 5 00 AM and to my great surprise I got used to it.

Waking up early has also so many advantages. You can get so many things done, time to pray, to spend a little extra time with your family, to sip on your morning tea or coffee, spend some time with yourself, meditate and start your day on a good note.

Did you ever wished that the day had more hours or that you can’t seem to accomplish all your tasks in a day? Waking up early could help you and today I’m here to help you to become a morning person.

How to be a Morning Person (2)

1- It’s all about the prep’

For anyone who has a busy schedule, prepping the night before for the day ahead is key. For some of us, mornings are a bit (or a lot) hectic. By prepping the night before, you can eliminate some of that stress of getting ready for the day. In the evening, take 10 minutes to clean things up, think about what you can do to make your mornings easier- prep your lunch, plan out your outfit, make sure you have everything you need ready to be packed, etc


2- Start the night before

Okay, so first thing first, go to bed early. If you have been a night owl for your entire life, this will be really hard. When I was in uni, it was impossible for me to study, write or do any uni-related work during the day. It wasn’t until 10-11 pm that I was finally able to concentrate. I’d stay up until 2-3 am, and as you can imagine, I could barely function during the day because of how little sleep I got.

Start by going to bed a half an hour earlier for a week, then try doing an hour, an hour and a half, until it becomes a habit. I also always make sure to have water on my nightstand so that I can drink it the first thing in the morning (your body just went for hours without water so it’s necessary to rehydrate it, this also helps my body to wake up a little)


If you find it hard to fall asleep at first, you can also try having some infusion.  Create a routine that will help you unwind before bed.


3- Come up with a bed routine 

Give yourself at least an hour to wind down, before going to bed. This will help you relax and will let your body know that it’s time to go to sleep. Chances are, you are very busy during the day, you’re running around, working, going to school, taking care of your home, etc. Your body is in constant *go-go-go* mode, which is why it’s so important to try to slow down at night. It’s also hard to go sleep when your mind is racing, so make sure that you’re not going to bed stressed– do some breathing exercises, try meditating, pick up journaling, read a few pages of your book, listen to some relaxing music.



4- Find a reason worth waking up every morning

I just told you about how I could only concentrate at night during my college days because it was just so quiet and calm. I’ve also discovered that early mornings are just as peaceful. And dark, and quiet. Getting up early means that you will have more time, just for yourself. You can get in a little workout (but I’m too lazy), read a book with your tea/coffee, make big breakfast for yourself- all before everyone else gets up and starts making noise. Getting an early start to your day also means that you won’t be in a rush which can be stressful and no one wants to start their day feeling stressed.


5-Minutes of gratitude


When you think about morning rituals for busy people, sitting down and making a list of things you feel grateful for doesn’t seem like something that would somehow benefit someone with a busy schedule. But it does. Think about what people usually say in the morning, the minute they get out of bed “ugh another Monday“, “ugh it’s almost weekend, finally“, “I don’t feel like going to work“, “I hate getting up early” and the list could go on and on. We complain SO much. Your mornings set the tone for the rest of your day, so if you’re whining and complaining the minute you wake up, everything will irritate you. Think about how different things would be if you took just 5 minutes to think about something you feel grateful for, every morning. Try using affirmations, listen to or read something motivating or inspiring.

6- How to become a morning person: Start Slow

If you usually get up at around 7 am, don’t think that you can form a habit of getting up at 6 am in just a few days. Start by getting up 15 minutes earlier, and as it becomes easier and easier, you can then change it to half an hour and so on.

7- Do something that you enjoy, first thing in the morning 

Right after brushing your teeth, that is! It’s hard to motivate yourself to get out of bed early if you know you have to do something you dread. Make sure that one of the first things you do as soon as you wake up is something enjoyable, something you will look forward to every morning, something small, just for yourself. Personally, I love to open up the windows and smell the fresh air, to listen the chirping of the birds when there’s completely no noises of the cars or people talking out loud.


8- Get up at the same time, every morning 

It’s the only way to form a habit- stay consistent and hold yourself accountable. I don’t get up at 5.00 am during the weekends though, but I do only sleep in until about 8 or 9 am. If you keep at it, eventually your internal clock will reset and you will notice that you won’t even need an alarm anymore. This does take time though.


9- Get going, as soon as you open your eyes

Who doesn’t love their bed? Especially in morning, when it’s all nice, warm and toasty. This is why a lot of us fail so miserably when it comes to getting up early; as soon as our alarm goes off, we mute it and go back to sleep. So, it’s important to get going as soon as possible. I find that once I make it to the bathroom and brush my teeth, going back to sleep is out of the question.


Change your mornings, change your life. Even when you’re extremely busy or live a very active life, your mornings don’t have to feel rushed and messy. Remember that you are the one who sets the tone for your morning and day to come.


The Beauty Blogger Tag


Hey my loves,

Today I bring to you something different. A TAG! I love tags as it’s a way to know more about the person. I took questions from different beauty tag to create something of my own and I hope you guys get to know me a little more.

Let’s jump right into it as this tag is a little long… 🌸


How important is skin care to you?

Skincare is CRUCIAL for me. I used to underestimate the power of having a proper skin care routine and THANK GOD, I am out of denial now. I have my own little routine for the day & night. Read more here

Do you prefer lipsticks or liquid lipsticks?

As much as I love liquid lipsticks, I will have to choose lipsticks because I can re-apply during the day without making it look cakey and your girl right here is ALWAYS eating. I hate when only the middle part of the liquid lipstick is gone and you can’t apply again because it will look a complete mess.

Matte or Glossy lip?


Lipgloss or lipstick?

Lipstick, lip gloss and I are not good friends. I always end up looking like this because of crazy winds…

Is there a beauty blogger you really wanna meet? 🙋

There are so many people I would LOVE to meet but if I had to choose one I would pick It’sJudysLife/It’sJudyTime. I have been watching her YouTube videos/vlogs for 6 years now. Not only she is a great inspiration for me but also a role model teaching one how to stay humble, down to earth and grateful even when you have everything.

What’s a makeup tip/trick you’ve learned that you now can’t live without?

BAKING! This technique changed my MAKEUP GAME. The oily chanapuri mess I used to be after an hour doing my makeup is now almost oil-free during the whole day. What’s your holy grail makeup trick? Share it with me in the comments down below.

Do you “collect” makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?

I am a bit of a collector but I research usually before I buy something so I don’t have a crazy collection.

Sometimes (just to practice) but typically not.

How often do you wash your makeup brushes?

Not as often as I should…

Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you are getting dressed?

Yeah, I do. I read and respond to all. I love engaging with my readers. (Drop a comment- If you feel like * no pressure* )

Not a beauty review but a REALITY CHECK 👽

Do you ever feel like everyone’s life is going on smoothly while yours has come to a halt?

Do you ever feel like everyone has their life planned out while you are stuck? You can’t figure out what to do next. While other’s are “progressing” in life and taking the other step of life happily, you are still figuring out your life? Do you ever feel like this?

Do you ever feel so much pressure (from your parents, friends, partner and even stranger) that even when you are sleeping [which is the moment when you are supposed to relax your mind and body] you feel like your mind might explode because you are thinking about so many things ( getting a job that you actually enjoy, getting that driving license after having a traumatic experience the first time, dealing with “adults” and worldly matters when you feel you are a kid, taking responsibilities – the next chapter of your life)


Do you ever feel so lost in your own thoughts that you can’t even hear the clock ticking near your head or the birds chirping? Do you wake up in the middle of the night at 2 AM and don’t feel asleep again because you start thinking about how will you earn your living when in your country thousands of graduates are unemployed? We’ll I might be one of them soon…

Is this what being an adult means?

I was not prepared for this chapter of my life. Just like after school, I was prepared for college and after college for the university, this time no one told me about this feeling. But, does anybody get the time to be prepared?

No one told me about this friend called insomnia, about these nights thinking about your life and nothing make sense.


While everyone might look happy on social media, no one actually is really ALWAYS happy.

Have a look at my Instagram page and you will think that I’m living the most amazing life. But deep inside, only I know the pressure that is making me feel like I will break down soon, the stress and the fear to fail, to disappoint the woman who worked day and night to make me reach where I am right now, to disappoint my own self, to take the next step, to start a new chapter.

Don’t get me wrong, I do have awesome days, weeks and months. I am grateful and blessed. I have a roof under my head, a warm bed, an amazing family, friends that everyone dreams off and a phenomenal partner. And still, it’s one of those moments where you feel lost, you are at a standstill and you don’t know which direction to take. So you wait, for guidance, for a sign…

These pictures on Instagram and Facebook are just a few seconds of my life that I choose to share because I was happy for a second. I didn’t share the hours of me crying because I’m scared of being unemployed because what I want to do is nowhere to be found where I live right now or worst situation would be getting a job that I hate (thus hating life).

Maybe I’m not the only one in this situation. But right now it feels like I am the only one whose LIFE SUCKS! Maybe it’s because I hide all these feelings that make me like a loser (when really I’m not because I’ve achieved a lot through this blog and on YouTube). At the same time, Real Life is not a fairytale. No matter how hard you work, at some point you will find yourself to be depressed about something, you will find yourself drowning in stress and no one will be able to help you because you hide this side of you from everyone and show only the happy side (I’m guilty of). Maybe the reasons will be different but you will feel like you are lost. 👽

“Hold on!”

People say it will only get better. I’m still in the phase where I’m stressed and on the verge of a breakdown. I’m still figuring out my future and planning to take the step for the new chapter of my life. I’m scared AF. Once I know if it gets better or not I will update you.

Until then, Hold on- Pray- Don’t give up- Stay Strong. Cry when you feel like crying, throw a tantrum when you feel like but just DON’T GIVE UP! ❤

Until next time…. xoxo
