June Favourites 2013!

Hello gorgeous!

I've been thinking of something to post since the second I published my Confession Session post. June is 4 days close to an end but this month, I'm gonna be a little early and show you what I've loved this month. Feel my excitement?

#1: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream

Okay, I know it's a little late for me to rave about this product, but this BB cream and I have been on and off for quite a while, I wasn't a huge fan at first and I thought the hype over it was just a fad, but recently, I've been loving it. I think it's how your skin adapts to it and thankfully, I found a way to make it work. It's been a part of my daily makeup routine and I love how fresh it gets my skin feeling throughout the day.

#2: MAC Pro LongWear Concealer

No surprise here, MAC has always been amazing and every girl needs some concealer in her bag for those blemishes every once in a while. Now that it's summer, late nights are bound to happen. And this product leaves you with no regrets, giving your dark circles the full coverage they need. From the amount that I've used without reapplying throughout the day, I'm totally in for another bottle of this product. I've been using this for about two months and I still have halfway to go!

#3: Lancôme's Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover

I actually got this in a box along with a black eyeliner and mascara, the mascara being what I was initially meant to buy, but every store has to have a salesperson that persuades people into buying much more than they originally planned. Thankfully, I was persuaded by just the right saleswoman to end up with such an amazing product. This can literally wipe a bucket of makeup off your face, using the least amount you'd expect. This remover isn't based on removing eye makeup only. From waterproof mascara, to heavy foundation, this lovely piece can do wonders and lasts for ages!

#4: Lancôme's Doll Eyes Mascara

If you've been on my blog for a while, you've seen this in my 'What's In My Bag?' post. My love for this mascara hasn't stopped and I'm loving it more and more every time I apply! The thick long clump-free lashes I get using this mascara is unbelievable and honestly, I'm not willing to change up just yet!

#5: Energy Cosmetics' Perfect Fruit Serum

Growing my hair was never a problem until I've become a teenager and using heat has become a hobby of mine. But with this hair serum, things have been a lot easier! Rubbing a fair amount between the palm of my hands and onto my hair gives me that soft glowing hair and a touch of healthy looking split ends. I've used this for a while and the love it shares with my hair is just great

#6: Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry

The scent, the packaging and the formula have been combined to give you the definition of amazing. The fresh scent and just the right level of dryness this product gives your hair after a long boiling day in the sun is magical. This is definitely something I'm carrying in my bag this summer and yes my dears, I've lost the lid because I'm perfectly imperfect like that.

#7: Sweet Rose Talcum Powder from Le Verger Shop

My mum got this for me and gave it to me and basically, I'm in love with it. They have this in 9 other scents I believe (pomegranate, raspberry, raisin rouge, neptune, lily of the valley, green tea, sweet camellia, papaya and green lemon). This luxurious powder gives my skin such a smooth, soft feel, dry (oil, sweat-free) skin throughout the day, along with an amazing scent. The sweetness gives this age-old theme a modern touch and I just love applying it all over my body when I'm out of the shower. I will definitely be purchasing this powder in the same and hopefully other scents too.

#8: Moonlight Path Jardin de lune Body Lotion by Bath & Body Works

This body lotion has such a fresh scent and feel to it, it's literally been one of the very few lotions I'd actually apply on my skin. The way your skin is meant to absorb this lotion is amazing. It dries quickly, saving you from that sticky feeling most lotions tend to give. Love love love!

#9: Caribbean Escape Candle by Both & Body Works

By this stage, you've figured how much I love scented things. So how could I not have a candle in this list? This candle has such a mesmorising scent to it, I can't even describe how much I love it. A blend of tropical melon, raspberry nectar and lemon mellowed by creamy coconut milk and raw sugarcane in a jar giving you such an amazing scent. Every girl needs one of these in her room, or at least, every girl like me does.

#10: Chanel N°5 Bath Soap

These Chanel soap bars define luxury. I love the feeling I get brushing this all over me. How my skin feels right after I've used this is simply flawless. My mum got these as a gift and I had to have my hands on a bar, so I did and I'd love to have a few more. May I say, they leave your body smelling amazing! I know you're thinking this is a waste, but you could leave them in your closet, underwear cupboard or even on a shelf in your room, and the scent will just find it's way through it all!

#11: Double Vision By 3Oh!3

Yes, I know this is so 3 years ago, but it's back on my playlist! Such a catchy, summer feel to this song and I basically have it on repeat!

That's all for now! If I try something new within the next four days and end up loving it, I will be updating this list. I know I've spoken about scents in almost every number up there, but I just love anything that smells good, so please, don't mind me!

I hope you enjoyed my June Favourites, if you want me to keep on with these posts every month, let me know in the comments below, or you could tell me what you've been loving this month! I'd love to know.

Until next time,

Confession Session

Hello readers!

I'm finally done with work and my summer has officially started! In other words, I'm all yours. With loads of posts coming your way, I've decided to start off with a confession session. I got the idea from a fellow blogger and I wanted to do the same, perhaps you could get to know me better!

Let's start...

I confess.. I'm a tea addict. I can have 5 cups of tea, one after the other, and if someone offers me another, I won't say no. I simply love tea and there's nothing I can do about it.

I confess.. I'm not exactly an open book. I don't like talking about everything I've been through and I don't express how I feel much either. Something about giving people access to my weaknesses is a huge no no for me.

I confess.. I am a clean freak. When I say freak, I don't mean going all out and spraying door knobs with hand sanitisers, but to be honest, I would not touch a greasy/wet door knob, at all. Not even with a tissue. I just like being clean at all times. Don't get me wrong, I'm a very humble person.. I just wouldn't enjoy placing my hands on stuff, when I have no idea where they might have been.. Eek!

I confess.. I am a shopaholic as most of you probably know. I really enjoy shopping for clothes, makeup, crafts and gadgets. But that's where it gets bad.. Sometimes, actually a lot of times, I'll buy things for the sake of buying them. I have no idea how to stop that.. Such a horrible habit!

I confess.. I don't dislike people, unless they've done something to me. If it's something small, I'll get over it and everything will be okay, but if it affects me in a way that I can't forget about it, I just can't help how I am towards that person. I wouldn't be able to even try and accept that person. But like I said, it has to be something big. I don't dislike people easily

I confess.. If someone means a lot to me, I'd do anything for them. Simple

I confess.. I don't wanna grow up. Getting older means more responsibility, more decisions and a lot of limits.. So, I'd like to stay here forever, please.

If you're still reading, here's a high-five for your interest! I didn't confess much and I hope this was wasn't too boring but hey, you're 7 steps closer to getting to know me!

Thanks for reading,
Teen Diary

My fashion picks: eFoxCity!

Hello gorgeous!

It's finally summer! Taking all of that stress off my shoulders and being able to spend my time doing whatever I like is simply amazing! Sadly, I have a week of doing some community service [school-related] before I could start enjoying my time.

To give me a good sense of summer, clothes have never failed. That's when I was asked to pick three items from eFoxCity - but, there was a twist.. I had three key words: Sexy women dresses, wholesale women pants & women's blouses. Meaning, I had one choice of each, using all three.

And well, that wasn't very easy.. As soon as I took a dive into the tops section, I was a hungry kitten with more than a pawful of food options. Except in my case, the food was all the amazing tops with completely different styles, designs and even shapes. Which is why, I'm leaving my choice of tops till last!

Let's begin....

#Dresses [ sexy women dresses ]

Floral is in & this dress is perfect! Capturing all the bright colours from red to yellow and blue, this dress is not only girly thanks to the floral, but it's also as bold as you could get! For a day out with your friends, hanging at the beach or even a fancy event, this is the dress you want in your closet. You could throw on a simple cardigan and pretty sandals and you're good to go!

#Bottoms [ wholesale women pants ]

But my lovely fashionistas, floral isn't all that's in! Checkered leggings have managed to get some spotlights of their own. You could throw on a coral flowly top, a beautiful blazer, or even those adorable crop tops! The black and white go with basically everything. Add a touch of colour and go for a bright sweater, you'll look stunning without even trying!

#Tops [ women's blouses ]

I am in love with this piece of beautiful chiffon. Summer means tons of pool parties with your girlfriends, cousins and family. So, pairing this with some denim shorts and bright bando or bikini top underneath will definitely look super cute! Basically, you could dress this up, or dress it down! I'd probably pair it with navy skinny jeans and a coral vest underneath. Class with a sprinkle of cute!

Be sure to check out eFoxCity and take a look at their items! I must say, they have beautiful pieces at the best prices! This was hard but I'm pretty pleased with my choices. What do you think? Any thoughts?  Scroll through their stuff and let me know what your 3 picks are!

Hope you enjoyed!

Until next time,

Tag: 15 Fashion Questions!

Hello lovely!

Summer's around the corner and I literally can't wait because that means more blogging! I have so much planned for you guys and I'm just a week away from doing it all. One thing you'll see a lot of is beauty, fashion, and even random tags. But since one week is absolute ages in blog time (yes, that's a thing....), I thought I'd start now!

1) What's your favourite style to wear?
I love tons of different styles; and anything that looks good in my eyes is immediately great. But one thing I tend to do in every single outfit I own, is make it look girly somehow. I'm a female obviously and well, why not enhance that? I'm a true girly girl. I just love feminine, pretty things. I love dresses, skirts, florals, bows and pretty details. It's an addiction
2) Who is your fashion role model?
There are so many fashion icons out there and the amount I love are endless. Let me just express my love towards the fantastic wardrobes a few TV shows flaunt.. I'm basically speechless. From 90210, Pretty Little Liars all the way to Gossip Girl.. Love love love! Two fashion icons I'm practically in love with are Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen. Their sense of style is breath taking, which is why I dedicated a whole post to these Fashionistas which you can check out here! Another fashion icon I love is Ivanka Trump, she's classy, elegant, and simply gorgeous! And I can't leave out the girl that speaks feminine all over.. Taylor Swift! Whatever she has on, she just has to add that soft touch, and I love it!

3) What do you always have on?

Hmm.. This question could mean two things:
1. What I like wearing on a daily basis - It actually depends on my mood; I love cute tees and I'll have them on a lot, but I've also been into maxi dresses just because they give me a good feel and for some reason, I like looking nice when I study... And then there are those days where sweatpants and messy buns are perfect. So basically, I don't have a daily thing and I probably didn't answer the question right if this was the purpose of it...

2. Something I have on 24/7 - Something I have on literally all the time is my diamond earrings. My mum bought them for me on my birthday a few years ago and I just love them!

4) What are your favourite jeans?

I have a hard time finding jeans that actually fit me the way I want so this has been a battle. Not gonna lie, I've had to purchase jeans from the kids section a lot of times. That was until I started trying out the skinny jeans in Forever 21 and figured they were made for people like me. They've been the only jeans I have been purchasing ever since.

5) What are your favourite sunglasses?

Honestly, I don't really wear sunglasses let alone purchase them that often. I do like the ones they have at Forever 21 and such stores, the pretty prints on the frames are really nice, and I've actually bought a few for summer just for that funky cute touch but otherwise, I'm not really a sunglasses type of person..

6) What are your favourite pair of shoes?

Converse! I am in love with converse. I'd love to have them in every single colour and print out there. Seriously, my love for them is crazy. I've had an addiction before, and it's back again thanks to all those beautiful photos of them on Tumblr and Instagram!

7) Who influenced you to write about fashion?

I've had a thing for fashion for ages and I love watching YouTubers talk about their fashion favourites or beauty products that they can't live without, as well as their hauls and so on. I also love watching talk shows when they're about fashion and beauty, not to mention reading reviews and browsing fashion blogs so all that has definitely influenced me and got me excited to bring out this side and I wish I started earlier. I've actually been wanting to start a blog for ages until my mum actually encouraged me to do so.

8) Who is your favourite fashion person on YouTube?

It seems like I have no direct answer to any of these questions! But I love tons of YouTubers from Bethany Mota, Blair Fowler, Amanda Steele all the way to Zoella, Tanya Burr, Fleur, Heart and many more. They all have amazing videos and their sense of style and fashion is heart warming! I actually have a whole post about my YouTube Favourites which you can check out here!

9) What is your favourite store?

I like having a variety of different choice so I tend to shop in more than just a couple of stores, so I'll just list the shops I tend to go in more:

- Forever 21
- Zara
- M&S
- Saks
- Hazelnut
- Gap
- Seventh Heaven
- Juicy Couture

10) What is your favourite fabric?

My favourite fabric.. This is hard because there are so many, but I'll go for cotton seeing as it's so soft and is extremely gentle on the skin. Although, cotton isn't my main focus when I'm shopping.

11) Who is your favourite model?

Honestly, I don't really follow up with whole modelling world, so I don't have a favourite model atm.

12) If you had $5000 to spend on any item, but just one, what would it be?

Well.. I can't spend $5000 on shoes or a dress so, I'm gonna say a Designer bag of my mum's choice, because I absolutely love her taste when it comes to these things. If I fail to find that perfect bag, I'd go for a Rolex watch. God, they are stunning!

13) Heels or flats?

Flats! I love heels and as gorgeous as they are, we have a lot of misunderstandings. But flats and I.. We click.

14) What purse do you currently use?

I'm currently using one of the Timeless Chihuahua collection bags by Paris Hilton. It's a pastel pink with black leather that's just perfect for summer. I may be doing an updated What's In My Bag post soon, so if you'd like to see that, comment below! Updated because I previously made one, you may check it out here!

15) Is fashion in your blood or your jeans?

Definitely in my blood. Probably why I'm such a shopaholic as well. I love looking at old family photos and seeing all those items I wish they'd sell now. My mum and grandma are all about that feminine classy look and I love the fact that it runs through my blood.

Well, that's all I guess! I've had loads of fun doing this post, so if you have any tags in mind for me to do in the future, you may comment below, or you could just comment with answers to some of the questions above, I'd love to know about your fashion sense!

Hope you enjoyed!
