My new boots :D

Hey  Guys,

I went shopping in Birmingham on Thursday, and picked up a few things.

Forever 21 was huge, but the actual merchandise didn't live up to my expectations. When I went to the F21 stores in Dubai, no matter which mall I was in I came back with something. Having said that, I did buy 2 dresses, a coat and a tshirt...Lol! Just, I expected more!

Anyways, my best buy of the day were these boots from River Island. They were £74.99, but I had my vouchers so paid £34.99 :D
The pics not that clear as I have no idea where I've put my camera! I'm not usually a fan of studded things, but love these :D

Whats been your fave purchase recently?

My new foundation love is...

Yet another Giorgio Armarni foundation. This time its Lasting Silk UV foundation. Now, the website says that it leaves a matte finish, but nope. It's got glitter particles in, not like Photoready, but fine-milled and not obvious like it at all. It leaves your skin looking glowy and gorgeous. It's water based too, so it's really light in texture, and  gives a good coverage.

As it's Christmas, the Armarni packaging is vamped up too. The lid is gorgeous, covered in Swarovski crystals, and the bag is a pretty red one.

I know I've just bought the No.7 Instant Radiance one, which might I add I still love but it's ok, I'll alternate them. One additional thing, I wore the Instant Radiance to a Bikram Yoga class and it lasted all class. That is amazing. For those of you who don't know what Bikram Yoga is, it's basically 1.5hours of doing yoga in a hot room. It's tough stuff, but really good for clearing the toxins out, and the women in there who have been doing it for a while, their bodies are fricking amazing! If you want to know more, let me know and I'll do a post based on the information pack they gave me when I joined and my opinion of it.

Finally, let me just show you this coat I got from Asda for only £35. I love it so much!
My next post is going to be on Emu Oil and it's benefits.

Hope you guys are enjoying the snow, I love it but hate that I cant go out due to being too scared to drive in it!

Lots of Love ShameeraXxX

I'm back!

Hey Guys!

Hope everyone is well?

After last weeks depressing post, I feel a lot better, more positive and happier :D

I thought I would do a pot of random beauty buys over the past few weeks...!

It was Eid on Tuesday, and I know I usually do an EOTD, but all I did was use gunmetal and sin mixed together from the Urban Decay Naked palette, with Virgin as a highlight. Black liner and mascara. A very nice, and easy smokey eye! Unfortunately, it was a very busy day, so I've not got any pics!

Oh just a side note, it was our team day on Thursday and it was amazing fun! We did Go-Karting at lunch, but then in the afternoon we build huge towers out of chocolate and tried to knock each others down. So much fun! Anyways, it was at a car museum, and Penelope Pitstop's limo was there...How cool? It was pink with gold glitter. There were also a number of Aston Martins, including a bullet holed, beaten up one used in James Bond!

So, on to my buys...

My Armarni foundation is about to run out, and until I get a chance to go into a Selfridges or Harrods or order it online I bought No.7 Instant Radiance. I'm all about the JLO Glow, and this foundation gives you a glow. I've only worn it once, so can't really do a proper review on it, but on the day I did, it was good!

Boots are currently doing half price perfumes, and I saw Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy, and I bought it! It's very fruity, yet has an edge. I love it...It is so becoming my new everyday perfume!

I finally got Mac Strobe cream, and I just have to say I love it so much! So much so, I use it everyday! It's really good, makes your skin look alive and well! So nice, mixed with foundation or just on its own. I definitely recommend this.

For my final purchase, you might be offended by it...It's Emu Oil. Basically, it's oil derived from the fat of an Emu bird. This stuff is meant to be amazing for hair and skin. I haven't used it on my skin, but it is really moisturising on the hair and gives it such a nice shine. I don't want to say too much about it as I want to do a proper post on it with background info and everything!

I know this is a random post, and if you have any questions about any of the products, just ask me and I'll let you know!

Shopping and Pain...

Hey Guys,

How has everyone been? I know I haven't posted for a while, but I've been going through some stuff which has just been upsetting...Boys! I won't go into the details as it's not that kinda blog...but I'm feeling a lot better now.

So, that made me think why is it when we're upset we shop? Seriously, over the last week I've spent so much and it was all to make me feel better. Whilst I was buying, I felt loads better, but as soon as I got home that pain came back :-( It's that short -lived rush of happiness you get...I love the quote from Confessions of a Shopaholic where she says
"When I shop the world gets better, the world is better; and then it's not anymore and I have to do it again..."  

Then if we cant or don't shop, we eat...This in turn makes us feel bad as we wont eat healthy things like cucumber sticks (well some may, I don't!), but we eat chocolate and cupcakes....!! We'll eat it, then wish we hadn't...Vicious circle!!

Yesterday, I went for my first pedicure...It was good, just sitting there, relaxing and listening to the pan pipe music, and after it thought I feel so relaxed and so much better. After a simple pedicure...It wasn't even all that. I prefer facials! However, that hour of just relaxing, really made a world of difference. Which led me to think, forget shopping, eating, crying...and all that bad stuff, just pamper yourself haha!! This worked out great till I got an email from an ex (There are only 2!) and I was back to square one! Good job I have a facial booked tomorrow for Eid haha!!

Sometimes talking it over and over just doesn't help, and you need other things to make yourself feel better. Also, I don't know about you, but I end up feeling like a broken record "why..." blah blah...!! Plus, personally I'm not one of these people who likes to admit they're sad or upset, I like to just put on a strong front, pretend I'm fine and get on with it.

So, what do you guys do to cheer yourselves up?? What kind of person are you when you get upset?

Let me know :D
