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.

I was on holidays for the past 3 months, therefore I used to get approximately 10 hours of sleep. Since I started working, I get 6-7 hours of sleep and no nap time.

How often do you wear nail polish? 💅 

Once a month for 5-6 days. As in my religion, you can’t pray with nail polish on, I take advantage when it’s the time of the month to get my nails done for a week. Otherwise, if I have time (which rarely happens) when I have to go to a wedding, I’ll wear some for a few hours.

About twice a week. On the other days, I use (Holy Grail) dry shampoo.

What do you do first? Face or eyes?

Face. I’ve tried doing the eyes first, but I like doing my face makeup first instead. 

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.

No. Sometimes it’s just the basic things like concealer, powder, blush, and mascara, but if I’m going or have to be at an event, then I definitely wear a full face.

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?

I decide on an outfit the night before if it’s something special, but typically I just wait till morning as sometimes I get a revelation during my sleep.

Hello my loves,

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know how much I love face masks. I have a bunch of them in my skin care cabinet and I try to put a mask at least 2 times a week. Today, it’s about  CLAY MASK. Let’s jump into the benefits of clay really quick.

Not only it helps to detoxify and purify your skin but is also a great oil absorber. It has lightening and brightening properties, tightens the pores, boosts circulation and reduces inflammation, making it a good choice for evening skin tone and diminishing redness. Clay masks are ideal for oily and combo skin as well as those who have prone to acne skin type.

All these benefits, isn’t it amazing? What’s your favorite mask? Let me know in the comments down below.

Coming back to the l’Oreal Clay mask, it took a while to get my hands on this baby since it came out. Finally, I got it from Monoprix for Rs 300-ish ( I’m not sure of the exact price). And since then, I’ve been getting so many questions and requests to do a review. I’m sorry that it took me a while to settle down on my final thoughts but here it is.

What I liked/Loved  …

If ever you get it, you don’t waste much product. This is so because it has this perfect thick consistency and is not runny at all. You can take your time to apply it on your face with your finger or a brush ( but not too slow because it dries up extremely fast).

I love the color of the jar, it is a really nice mint green. As for the scent, it has a pretty strong one, a manly scent which I don’t mind at all (I used to steal my dad’s perfume and now I steal my boyfriend’s perfume). Last but not the least, there is something about the packaging which feels and looks like a high-end product.

Sleep, drink water and treat your skin

The mask says that it cleanses and clarifies your skin, absorbs impurities and excess sebum, eliminates imperfections and clarifies the complexion. I thought I could benefit from it as your girl right here has combination to really oily skin. All I will say is that this mask lives up to its standard, my skin feels really fresh just after use and I don’t feel the need to run to my moisturizer after because it leaves your skin smooth and not dry at all.


I like the feeling that it gives your skin as you apply it. At first, I thought it was not working for me and I was quite disappointed but as you use 2 times a week for a month I noticed that my pores on my nose were diminishing.

What I don’t like …

It dries really fast, too fast, my face gets so tight and if you manage to move it will just crack. Usually, I like to put my mask, relax or do some chores then come back to remove it but with this one, you won’t have time to do much.

The jar itself is quite small, for 50 ml it says you can use it 10 times but I think this will only depend on the person itself. Price wise, for Rs 300, I think you can get a better mask like the Freeman clay mask. While the packaging is very cute, the jar inside might make you really disappointed, at least I was.

More good than bad, it’s definitely a mask that you will enjoy using but personally, I’m not going to buy another one after I’m done with mine. I love exploring around and I will keep doing so.

Don’t forget to watch the demo on my Youtube channel where I show you how it works and you can have a peek of a before and after using the mask 🙂

My nighttime beauty ritual 🦄

Hello my lovely readers,

It’s been a while since I last posted on my blog and I thought the best way to make a comeback would be to share my skin care routine with you guys. I’m flattered to get so many requests about this topic and I’m happy to share with you today some of the products that have been helping my skin to get clearer.

At night, your skin is in repair mode and recovering from the day. Also, your skin temperature is naturally higher at night, which means that your skin is more receptive to active ingredients. With that said, it’s incredibly important to have a diligent nighttime routine to maximize your products and reap the benefits during your sleep!

Throughout the past year, I have developed a specific routine when it comes to skin care. A routine that I make sure to follow every night and which feels like a mini pampering session. The products change once in a while but for time being, I’ve been loving each and every product in my current skin care basket. I think I will stick around for a while before using anything new.

I had some really bad acnes last year which left many scars on my face. At some point, I tried to cover it every single day with loads of makeup but this only worsened the condition. It took me some time to realize how important skin care is and now I’m obsessed with taking care of my skin. You won’t see any major changes at first but I promise, it’s worth investing in skin care than covering the problem areas with makeup.

Enough blabbering, let’s get straight into the steps! 💖 💖 💖

Step 1: Remove any makeup & wash the face

I don’t know if anyone else is just like me but removing your makeup at the end of the day is SUCH a satisfying feeling. It’s also very very very important to remove it off, let your skin breathe and prep it for the skin care.

Depending on how much makeup I am wearing, I use different methods to remove it. Sometimes I go for an oil base remover as products like waterproof mascara and skin tints with SPF are harder to rinse off with a gentle cleanser. Also, oils are a great way to massage your face. Other times, I go for a gel cleanser when I’m wearing minimal makeup because it just glides off my face in a sec.

Next, I gently rub my cleanser in a circular motion on top of my skin. Washing your face with a cleanser after using an oil will ensure you’ve gotten rid of all the buildup from your day. I’ve been loving my soap-free cleanser from Avene. No breakout, it’s not harsh on the skin and helps with my oily mess of a face.

Step 2: Toner

Your next step should be a toner, especially if you have oily skin. toner is necessary because it takes the pH of the skin back to normal. Most toners are composed of active ingredients that are great for the skin to absorb in the evening. Toners add an extra barrier of moisture to your skin—they’re incredibly hydrating and calming.


I love using Rose Water 🌹as a toner but lately, I have been using Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water as a toner. It smells horrible but does wonders for the skin.

Step 3: Serum

Serum is one of my favorite steps. As with toner, there are many active ingredients in them and so many kinds on the market; you just have to find one that fits your skin type. I’ve been using this Pre-Serum Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection solution from The Body Shop for the past 2 months now and I LOVE IT! ✨✨✨

Tea Tree Serum

The solution has been helping my skin to combat the acne scars and blemishes on my face. My skin looks and is now clearer, smoother and it helped with reducing redness. My favorite part? The cold tingling sensation you immediately feel after applying it. I’m definitely going to get it again and again! 💖

Step 4: Moisturizer


Do I need to go into the importance of moisturizing? Finding a moisturizer that will really penetrate and add moisture to the skin is crucial. I found my miracle moisturizer last year and since then, I got two more of these babies. I’m not ready to try anything new for the time being because this one from Nanowhite (I get it from Intermart) which has been doing so good on my skin. With this product, I always wake up to the plumpest and glowing skin. The more you keep your skin hydrated and moisturized, the younger and more vibrant you look.

Step 5: Lip care

I apply Macademia lip balm from Yves Rocher . It has a creamy, balm-like texture and matte finish, and seems to moisturize throughout the night better than other lip balms I’ve tried.

Optional Add-Ons for Your Nighttime Skincare Routine

  1. Spot Treat – If one of your concerns is acne and breakouts, a step to be added into your nighttime routine may be to spot treat. I would recommend applying your acne spot treatment following Step 4 (Moisturize). From time to time I do break out (time of the month, dirty makeup brushes, too many cheat meals) and when this happens, I run to get my Sudocrem. I apply it on the pimple for two days and poof, it’s gone.
  2. Mask – Adding a mask to your weekly skin care regimen can be extremely beneficial because they deliver ingredients beyond the superficial layers of the epidermis. I recommend adding a mask to your routine 1 to 3 times per week following Step 3 (Tone). If you use sheet masks (which I do once in a while), you can also replace Step 4 (Moisturize) with your mask and sleep with it on.
  3. Exfoliate – To remove dead skin cell build-up and stimulate cell renewal, and an exfoliant into your skincare regimen 1 to 2 times per week. You can exfoliate in the evening after Step 2 (Cleanse).And that’s it for my daily bedtime beauty routine. Although these steps may seem excessive, after repeating it for a few weeks, you’ll see a major difference in your skin’s texture and overall look. Once you consistently perform your nightly skin care routine, you’ll find it difficult to go to sleep without doing it.Want to see me demonstrate all these steps live? Hit me up on Instagram, DM me and we could chit chat while getting the skin ready for the night.Endslate.png





Irresistible Tiramisu Recipe (NO EGG) 🍮

Hey loves,

Yesterday I tried for the very first time to make Tiramisu. Out of nowhere, since a few weeks, I’ve been wanting to make some. I’ve been looking for an easy recipe that doesn’t require too many ingredients and thanks to my cousin, I found the perfect one where you don’t need mascarpone cheese as it is not easily accessible in Mauritius (and is quite expensive). I tried and it was just MOUTH ORGASMIC. 😍😱 😵

I will be doing a large batch for Eid in a few days and I thought I would share the recipe with you guys because it’s very easy to make and tastes delicious! ☺️

2017-06-22 07.15.45 1.jpg

You will need: 🌸

▽ Philadelphia Regular Cream Cheese (300 g)

▽ Whipping Cream ( I use the brand “President”)

▽ Icing sugar

▽ Vanilla Essence

▽ Boudoir Biscuits

▽ Strong dark coffee

▽ Cocoa Powder

▽ Warm Water

That’s really it!

How to proceed : 

Prepare Filling 🌸

In a bowl, mix the Philadelphia cream cheese with a spatula. You can place your bowl under some hot water to make the cream cheese soften more quickly. The mixing part will also become easier.( I wanted to have the taste of extra cheese, so I added a few cubes of Kiri cheese).

Once these two are just combined, add your whipping cream until it holds still. If you are using an electric batter, make sure not to over mix because otherwise, your cream will turn into butter (which we don’t want).

Add icing sugar and the vanilla essence. Use as much as you like depending if you want the cream to be sweet or more cheesy (in moderation ofc).


Combine your coffee, 1 tablespoon cacao powder, and vanilla extract, in a wide bowl.

Let’s assemble, shall we?

Dip half of the boudoir VERY QUICKLY into the coffee, and line the bottom with it. You might find that you need to break a few into pieces to fit them in the dish or in individual glasses.

((P.s if your coffee is too hot, your boudoir will melt. Let it cool completely before starting this step.))

Spoon half of the filling over the boudoir and spread into an even layer. Then, dip the remaining biscuits very quickly into the coffee and arrange a second layer over the filling.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 6 hours.It is preferable to prepare it the night before.

Before serving, dust your tiramisu with cocoa powder/ milo/ coffee powder or any toppings of your choice. Leave out at room temperature about 10 minutes before serving.

Tadaaa!! ENJOY this delicious creamy dessert. You will never get enough. 💖


If you tried it, don’t forget to post a picture and tag me on Instagram!

Sending you loads of love my darlings, see you soon! 💖





COLOURPOP Lipstick\\ Swatches & Review ❤

Liquid lipsticks have been IN for quite some time now. While they look amazing, those matte liquid lipsticks can be so drying on your lips and you girls know that the struggle is real when it comes to that time of the day to take it off. Or, during lunch or dinner time when the middle part is wiped away because of the oily food that we all love. To re-apply is just another issue because it will end up looking like you have 10 layers of lips.

Enough complaining because I do love liquid lipsticks and it’s been a while since I’ve wanted to try the ColourPop ones but due to my laziness to go to the bank (which is like 2 mins away from my house) to deposit some money on my shopping card *priorities first*, I never had a chance to get me some. Finally, two weeks ago I managed to order the lot of 3 for $12 (excluding shipping) and to my great surprise, it came to me faster than expected.


Colourpop is a huge bang on social media with all their gorgeous products, their liquid lipstick line is one of the most popular. Lately, it seems that every brand is coming up with their own version of liquid lipsticks and I am a fan of them because it’s long wearing and it’s matte (discarding the cons I talked about above)  Everyone loves matte, right? Who doesn’t?


The box, the colors make you feel so happy. Packaging is pretty much simple and very straight forward to use; it came in a plastic tube with a silver cap and a doe foot applicator.


I got three shades and I’m pretty sure that I will be getting more soon. They are really pigmented. Unfortunately, I haven’t got the chance to test if it stays on when you eat and drink because I am currently fasting. Unless I wear it at 4 30 AM when I eat or at 5 45 PM when I break my fast (my family will think I’m crazy), I won’t be able to tell you how long it last. If you would like an update in the future, let me know 😉


The formula is thin that makes it lightweight on the lips, but don’t be fooled — this product has an intense pigmentation like I said before. At first swipe, it has a watery consistency that glides on smoothly and after a couple of seconds it dries down into an ultra-matte finish. Ultra matte in the sense that there is no moisture in this product, it feels powdery when it dries but it is weightless on the lips. It doesn’t feel sticky at all which is a plus point. It has a weird feeling at first but you’ll get used to it.

The mini prim one is from there Ultra Satin collection. It transfers very quickly and got on my teeth within a few minutes. I wouldn’t recommend you to wear it when you are going for an interview or a wedding ( You don’t want to have colored teeth in front of so many people) but it still looks really nice. As the name suggests, it has a satin finish which I thought I wouldn’t like because I wear only matte lipstick but it was a good surprise. I love wearing dark lipstick so I’ll definitely use this mini gift.

Thanks, ColourPop!


However, I don’t recommend you guys to buy their mini collection. It contains only 0.02 oz compared to the regular lipstick which contains 0.11 oz of product which is a decent amount in my opinion. You might be disappointed if you are going to spend $$ on shipping and wait for weeks to get your order as the mini ones are of a sample size.

Mini Prim

I did a swatch video on my Youtube channel and Gurl, it stained my lips especially if you’re using the dark deep or bright shades from the range. It’s pretty hard to remove – I used waterproof makeup remover and olive oil to remove it. Still, my lips were left with a light stain and I had to load up some pretty good amount of vaseline on my lips afterward to get back the moisture.

Lil tip: You need to prep your lips before using it. Run your toothbrush on your lips as a scrub, apply some moisturizer and let it soak into your lips because once you apply this lipstick it will not hydrate your lips at all.

Here are a few pictures of how they look on me –


Are they worth it?

In general, I like them a lot and I do think they are worth it. Shipping can be quite expensive for us Mauritians but very often ColourPop offers Worldwide Free Shipping and that’s when you should take advantage to get yours. This is the first time I bought lipstick online and I love all the shades. I went through some sad encounters in the past and I thought I would never buy lipstick without a swatch on my hands but the ColourPop lipstick made me change my mind. 

Have you tried ColourPop lipstick? Which one is your favourite?

Denim Shirt – Fashion Bazaar // Jeans – Woolworths// Boots – Woolworths // Bag – Local Shop at Port-Louis 

My favorite piece in this outfit is the bag. I was walking around Keenoo Square a few weeks ago when I found this boho style bag and fell in love with it immediately. Since I bought it, I’m wearing it almost every time I’m going out. It doesn’t fit a lot of things which is a huge problem for me since I carry my room in my bag (literally)! It’s a fun statement piece that  brings this extra touch to your outfit especially, on a gloomy and rainy day.



I hope you enjoyed this quick post. If you want to see more like this let me know in the comments or on Instagram.

Take care my loves! Until next time.



Spa Facial At Home// Inexpensive & Easy|| ZAINAH 🌸

Hi loves,

Do you have a special event coming up? Do you want to look your best but you are too lazy to go out of the house to get your skin taken care of? Or maybe, you just want to pamper yourself without any major expenses? Then, you are on the right page. Continue reading…

Eid 🌙 (the day where Muslims will celebrate the end of one month of fasting) is coming up in a few days and we all know that during this period, the beauticians are already booked or if you manage to get a rendez-vous, you will end up waiting 1 hour for your turn.


Doing a facial on yourself is no magic.

Disclaimer: Of course, the results that you will get at a spa and at home will be different. It’s like you trying to make a Starbuck’s drink at home. You will most probably get a latte which will be satisfying but the real deal is something else. ☕️

Let’s get back to our Spa Facial at home before I get sidetracked with food talk again. 🙌🏼


You will need products that you already own (which means 0 expenses) and might take 1 hour of your time.

Gather around these products and we shall start:

▽ Makeup Remover

▽ Face wash

▽ Exfoliator (a home-made recipe is mentioned below)

▽ Toner (I use Rose Water)

▽  A bowl (to steam your face)

▽ A towel

▽ Extractor (also known as comedon)

▽ Your favorite mask

▽ Moisturizer/ Serum/ Aloe Vera Gel


That’s it my lovelies. Let’s get into the steps and give some love to our skin!

Step 1- Cleanse your skin/ Remove any left-over makeup


This step is really important. Why? 

Even if you didn’t wear makeup, follow this step. Your skin is exposed to all kind of bacteria during the day and even if you don’t see it, there is a layer of “dust” on your face. Take your makeup remover and a cotton pad, gently go through your face and NECK, which we tend to forget most of the time.

Next, wash your face thoroughly with your favorite cleanser and pat your skin dry (DON’T RUB).

Step 2: Exfoliate to remove any dead cells

Now that your skin is clean and feel fresh,it’s time to gently exfoliate to remove any dead cells and prepare the skin for the next step – STEAM!

You can use any gentle scrub that you already have or make one. I made my exfoliator using Olive Oil and Brown sugar.

Brown sugar is an excellent skin-exfoliator. It helps slough off dead skin cells on the outer layer of the skin.This allows room for new healthy skin cells to regenerate and function properly. It will also deep cleanse your skin, removing grime and germs from within skin pores and preventing further breakouts. Use brown sugar instead of white sugar because it is more gentle on skin and works well for very sensitive skin.


Olive oil because it is a natural skin moisturizer. Rich in vitamin E and healthy fat, olive oil lubricates and hydrates dry, withered skin. It does not clog pores unlike coconut oil and prevents further breakouts. Use extra virgin olive oil for best results. Processed products may irritate your skin or cause acne breakouts.

Add 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of olive oil to a small bowl. Stir well and you are good to go. Plus, it is an amazing lip exfoliator as well. 😉

Wet your face and your lips, apply the exfoliator and gently start rubbing your skin and your lips. Make sure not to eat some, especially if you are fasting. 😂

Do this for 5 mins and wash it off. The oil might stay on your face, go on … use your face wash to remove it off. Your skin will feel so soft, like the butt of a baby.🍑


P.s Your face may be a bit red after the scrub. This is because of the sugar scrub which stimulates proper blood circulation in your face. The redness will disappear after some time and your face will be glowing and free from peeling skin and dead cells.

Step 3: Steam and open them PORES!

This step is very important if you have blackhead and whitehead. The steam will open up your pores and make the extraction part easier and less painful.

  1. Boil some water and fill in your bowl halfway. If you feel extra, add some essential oil or even rose petals and be a DIVA that you are under the towel. 👸

2. Place your head over the bowl and make sure you are comfortable. Don’t be too                  close to the hot water but close enough that the steam is opening up your pores 🔥
3. Stay under the towel for a good 5- 10 minutes. Sneak out for a few seconds when                 you feel you need some fresh air.

Your face should look like this! Sexy, na?


After you are done, pat your face very gently and get to the next step right away! 🌬

Step 4: Let’s get them nasty blackheads out!

Now that your pores are open, you have to be very gentle with the extraction. At this point, if you don’t feel sure about doing it with an extractor, a towel on your nose. The blackheads/whiteheads should come off easily from the steam. Nasty but feels so satisfying to watch.

P.s: Be VERY VERY VERY gentle with the extractor loves. It might leave scars if you are too rough with it and might even bleed.

If you are used to an extractor, then carry on and have fun!

Once you feel that your face is cooled off, stop using the extractor because your pores are closed. I don’t recommend doing the steam again because it is a very delicate step.

Let’s jump into the next step instead. I promise we are almost done!

Step 5: The MASK

This is my favorite step. Now that your face is clean and your pores are not clogged, it’s time to use a mask. This is the appropriate moment where it will work the most and you will feel that the mask is seeping in your skin.

Use a sheet mask, a clay mask, a homemade mask, any favorite mask of yours at this moment. Here is some of my favorite one.

Enjoy your time, go on snapchat and play with the filters. Even Instagram have them now. If you are on this step, do send me a picture or tag me  😁 I would love to see your mask face. Here is mine!


After your mask is dry, wash your face and pat it dry!

Step 6: Moisturize your new face and ENJOY!

Here comes the end of our Spa at home journey. Use any of favorite moisturizer, your serum or even Aloe Vera Gel which will sooth the skin. At this moment, your product will get right into your skin. I used Aloe Vera Gel. Don’t forget to moisturize your lips as well and just relax my loves! 💋


I hope you guys found this helpful. Don’t forget to like and share it with your friends and on your social media.

Let me know if you had your mini spa day.


                      I’m sending lots of love to you guys!💖












Easy Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate chip Cookies

Hi loves,

I’m back with a recipe that I’m in love with. I like these cookies. They’re simple. They’re full of chocolate chips instead of raisins, but have oats which make them “healthy” (*wink wink*  I can eat as much as I want.) This recipe is quick, easy and fun. I still remember the first time I attempted to make cookies, it turned out so bad, they were all burnt and hard as a rock. Then I found a bunch of recipe on Pinterest, I combined a few recipe and made my very own recipe.


What you will need:

2 Eggs
3 cups of Quick-cook Oats
1 1/2 cups All purpose flour/ self raising
1 tsp Baking soda (ignore this ingredient if you use self- raising flour )
3/4 cup of Brown Sugar
3/4 cup of White Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla Essence
1 cup of melted butter (unsalted)
Chocolate Chip (Use as much as you want)

Steps :

1. Preheat the oven to 180oC

2. Melt the butter, and beat in the sugar until fully mixed together.

3. Carefully add in the egg and vanilla until just mixed, make sure not to overbeat.

4. Add in the flour and mix together until fully incorporated
(but try not to over mix to make sure they stay light and fluffy!)

5. Add the oatmeal, in small quantity and mix.
(At this point if you are using an  
electric mixer, it will slow down the machine and if you are using your hands, then you will get a good workout.)

6.Stir in the chocolate chips (the fun part) and again try not to mix too much

7. Using spoons, form small balls and pop onto a lined baking tray leaving a bit of
space for the cookies to spread out.

8.Pop them into the oven and bake at 180oC for 9 – 11 minutes, until the cookies are
lightly golden brown. Slide them onto a rack for them to cool, if you can wait this

                     Let me know if you bake them, I promise you will not regret it!



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







How to style a DENIM JACKET in winter w/ Sadyia ❤

photoshop2.jpgHi everyone,

The weather has been quite chilly these past weeks and apparently, winter – well, our tropical winter knocked at the door. In Mauritius, the probability of having days below 20°C is quite rare. Therefore, there is no use for us to go and throw out money on coats and jackets with a thick lining and faux- fur. A denim jacket is just perfect for us, islanders to be cozy and warm during winter. It literally goes with anything and I think it’s the perfect 365 days piece that everyone should have in their closet.

I think denim jackets are such a common term now that everyone is familiar with it! Denim jacket has been in style for so many years now and it appears that it has no intention to go anywhere anytime soon.  I am sure that every one of you owns a denim jacket. Maybe you stole it from your siblings or bought it from the money that you saved for so long. TBH, to get a good quality one is quite expensive and hard to find in Mauritius. While it was in trend everywhere else, I struggled quite a lot to find a denim jacket on the island. C’mon sweet Mauritius, time to step up the game!

I collaborated with the beautiful Sadyia who identifies herself as an Instagram blogger  (Be sure to check her Instagram: l.dina_ ) to bring to you these 4 looks at how you can style your (or how we style) denim jacket in winter, from heels to sneakers.


The business lunch

She created that look by styling her denim jacket with a pair of jeggings, a white shirt, and bomb white heels. To add a little extra, she added her leopard printed bag.




You can find the pieces:

Jeggings – Mango

Shirt – Boyfriend’s

Denim Jacket – Tommy Hilfiger

Heels – Mango

 Watch – Citizens Watch

 Pieces of jewelry – Bijouterie Haujee

 Brunch with the girls

I paired my denim jacket with a loose black dress and added the metallic shoes (I’m obsessed with) to add the edgy look. I love the color combination of black and denim so much!

Denim Jacket: Zara
Dress: Fashion House
Shoes: Rose-Hill
(I’m sorry, I don’t remember the name)
Watch and bracelet: I Am

Bad-ass Look!

Denim can never go wrong with basics, right? Sadyia created this edgy look by pairing her denim jacket with a black body suit and black jeans. She wore a beautiful layered necklace to complete the look with heels.

Jeans – Mango
Bodysuit – Red Snapper
Jacket – Tommy Hilfiger
Shoes – A Gift
Watch – Citizen Watch
Chain – S&M

Create that edgy street style look by coordinating a black top with a pair of distressed jeans, a pair of white sneakers and your fav denim jacket.
