The rules of endearment


For the love of lipsticks…

I have reviewed Avon products before, so I am bit excited about this collection.

Avon True Colour Supreme Nourishing Lipstick found here Avon True Colour Supreme Nourishing Lipstick is one of the best collections I have tried so far.

The colours are absolutely gorgeous but the texture of the lipsticks is to die for… if you have not tried one out yet, what are you waiting for? 🙂

Plum Perfect- Avon

The photo session for this compilation of colours was just beautiful…and not just because the shades are irresistible to the camera but also because the weather was an absolute fit.

I love working outside, using nature as my canvas…it never disappoints.

 

 

I couldn’t choose just one tone to share with you, so here are the top 5 I fell in love with 🙂

  • Revitalising Raspberry – top centre picture
  • Loving Lilac – top left corner picture
  • Red Cream – top right corner picture
  • Sublime Wine – picture below
  • Plum Perfect – top post picture

Whatever you like light shades or bold ones, there is a choice for every taste, so why not try something new but also nourishing.

My final snapshot is my favourite, let me know what you think 🙂

More than just a shade…


It has been a while since I have written or blogged about anything…

I think sometimes you just need some time off or life takes over and you don’t even realise how long it has been since you’ve done something you love…

But…let’s not talk about the past; let’s take a peak into the future or even truly look at the present!

My Sweet Lips Chronicle was always meant to be a little piece of what I think its beautiful and it deserves to be shared with those of you who might feel the same.

A lipstick might have been just a lipstick 30 years ago, but its not just that anymore.

Most of us use it to make a statement, to feel empowered and bold…but let’s not forget that sometimes we just use it because it makes us experience another side of us!

Colour is Art

 

I absolutely love this Bourjois lipstick (Rouge Edition no.41 Pink Catwalk)…and not just because it looks amazing in pictures 🙂

On lips it looks like a soft but bold pink, which is always attractive…

If you have never tried a pure pink lipstick because you think its not for you but your hidden thoughts always circle around the possibility, this Bourjois colour could be your best first choice.

Dark and Beautiful…

You can always choose Revlon Black Cherry if you are daring and want something different.

There was a time when we only used dark colours as part of evening make-up…but we are living interesting times and as the saying goes ‘rules are meant to be broken‘ … if its for sweet lips 🙂

Photography is art…make-up is a beautiful indulgence that could easily become an artistic tool of self expression.

At least…that is exactly what it has turned out to be for me!

See you soon…

Taste of Plum


 

Second chapter of the Sweet Lips Chronicles…it’s all about the taste.

I remember a time when bright colours were just for summer time…to be worn and displayed on holidays…far away from our day-to-day habitat!

Even now…how often you find yourself being bolder and more adventurous amongst strangers?

In an ideal world, we should be ourselves in our most comfortable surroundings, which on paper should be our home, our family, our friends and colleagues…but for some unknown reason, most of us experienced the odd moment when you feel like truly being yourself anywhere else but where you should…

This year, I’ve spent my holiday a little bit further from home and as any tourist in the world I have set my mind up to try new things, meet new people … taste interesting cuisines and make memories for a life time.

I never really thought about changing my make up bag or be more daring with colours…but as any unplanned and unforeseeable thing, I have returned with a new taste between my dessert choices 🙂

The taste of plum…or as we all know it…sweet purple lips!

I have moved my research ground beyond Maybelline New York and Rimmel London…

Urban Decay… here I am!

I have found one beautiful and not to mention tasty colour that I couldn’t resist… Seismic Sheer Shimmer (top picture).

But I haven’t stopped there…

I was enjoying this new-found confidence too much 🙂

From just an innocent bite of plum, I’ve dived into a whole basket of tempting choices and I had to have them all 🙂

Some love to collect stamps…some just do not bother…

Me on the other hand…I fell in love with sweet colour lipstick and I never want to go back!

Life is too short to spend it wondering about ‘what if’ or ‘should I’ …

Just be fearless and give it a go…might that be a bold colour lipstick or blind dating 🙂

Be the person you wish to be…the very best version of YOU!

Now…go ahead, find the most eye-catching colour and make it your very own!

…and never forget to make it delicious 🙂

‘Red Echo Date’ #9


Looking for inspiration?

Join R.E.D quote challenge…and share your thoughts behind this week’s words of wisdom 🙂

quote 9

Every day is different…

Silence or anxiety, we still need to find ways of dealing with every little thing that comes our way!

I admit that sometimes I feel overwhelmed…too many things are happening instantaneously and I forget how to breathe! Someone told me once that life is stressful enough, we don’t need to add anything to it…and it’s so true.

Sometimes we panic about the future…the future that didn’t happen yet.

Why?

We forget to live in the moment and we throw away all our energy on assumptions, predictions and thoughts of what will be.

But that is just human nature!

I think about the future all the time and there are moments when too much anxiety takes me away from the present and then I find that second that can pull me back to reality because I know that I will regret more something I could miss now than any future prospect.

What is anxiety of life?

Is it fear of failure, questions of the unknown, doubt against accomplishment?

I think is all of that and so much more…

How to deal with it…how to conquer it?

…with one breath at a time…
