Open day at Beauty & Co - Swieqi

Saturday, 24 November 2012

Here in Malta there isn't as many launch parties or products events like there is in London, I'm always jealous of the London bloggers who get to these cool events, but Malta is my home for now and I try to make the most of what the little island has to offer.

Today my local beauty salon was having an open day, they had jewellery and clothing on sale, and also were promoting their services. I went along to show my support as you couldn't meet a friendlier bunch of people who always make me feel more than welcome. I have the same person doing my nails every time and I've come to consider the staff my friends. Once a month I go to get my nails done and we all catch up on each others gossip and talk about our latest beauty finds.

Here's some pictures I took from the event:

Jewellery was by Jazzy Jewelz (, they had a massive selection to choose from so it was hard to walk away empty handed. I bought myself a ring and some bracelets.

The bags,scarfs, belts and clothing were from Ferramoda, who last night held their fashion show at the Radisson blu in St.Julians. Their pieces are all unqiue and hand made from Italy.

If your looking for a beauty salon in, I can highly recommend Beauty & co in Swieqi. I've been going for over 3 years for all my beauty needs and can't fault them at all, they are really an all round great salon.

Have a great weekend!

Me am Chic Event

Thursday, 22 November 2012

At the weekend I ventured along to the MFCC here in Malta for the Me am Chic event. As far as days out go for malta, this was one of the better things I've found to do. Being away from the UK I miss out of things like 'Girls day out', which is right up my street. So when I saw the Me am Chic event, I couldn't wait to go. Mainly because it's something different to do.

So here's some photos I took at the event...

There was loads to see, and there was some brands there I was surprised to see in Malta, one of them being Dermalogica. As one of my favourite skin care brands, I was happy to learn they've just launched a stand at The Point! There was Sienna tan, dove, macadamia oil, Threads (threading booth - that i took the opportunity to tidy my eyebrows up!), schwarzkopf, Bourjois, revlon and much more!

I went on the Sunday, but throughout the weekend there was Nail Compete, a stiletto race, a 50 shades of grey treasure hunt, fashion shows and much more. I was so happy to find out that the girl who does my nails won all 3 categories that she entered in Nail Compete, she really does an amazing job. Well done Faye!

I went along with my friend Lisa and enjoyed a few hours browsing all the stalls seeing everything they had on offer. I was also invited to drop by the schwarzkopf stand, where I received some lovely goodies to review, so i'll be blogging about them shortly.

All in all I had a great day out, it was nice to do something different in Malta, and i'll be sure to attend next year.

Sephora Lip Gloss in Christmas Candy

Monday, 19 November 2012

 As part of my Sephora Haul I got some of Sephora's own lip glosses to try. One of the shades I picked up 09 Christmas Candy, just to get me in to holiday spirit.

Christmas candy is a red coloured gloss, but goes on rather sheer, it also has glitter in it, perfect for those christmas parties coming up!

While there isn't much colour, one thing I do love is the smell and taste, it's fruity, but not over powering, just enough to go "oooh" when you're putting it on. The formula couldn't be any better either, it slides onto the lips and isn't sticky what so ever which I love. No one likes a sticky lip gloss!!

Have you tried the Sephora Lip glosses - what's your favourite shade?

Sephora Haul

Sunday, 18 November 2012

Last month some friends of mine were lucky enough to go to Flordia for a few weeks, and when they texted me asking if I wanted anything, I couldn't really say no. So I was straight onto the Sephora website to see what goodies I could. There was already a few items I had in mind that I'd seen US bloggers buy, but with an opportunity to get more I couldn't resist. Here's what I got:

Chloe rollerball perfume
$25.00 - I'd seen something similar on a US sephora haul and wanted one for me handbag

Instant depuffing eye mask
$6.00 - This was a last minute thing I put of my list to try

Phyto 7 : 
$26.00 - I'd seen quite a few bloggers using this, so thought I would give it a try too.

Sephora Lip glosses
$10.00 each - I've not tried these before so I thought i'd give them a go.

MUFE : Smokey Lash
$23.00 - another blogger favourite I couldn't give up the chance to try out

Origins Clear Improvement Clay Mask (not pictured)
$23.00 - forgot to put this in the picture. I've already tried a few origins products and I love them and since I can't get Origins in Malta I got some as a treat.

I was actually surprised my friends managed to get everything I asked for, I really didn't expect that. All in the correct shades too. I couldn't of done a better job myself. I'm currently in the middle of trying all these products out, so I'll be posting reviews shortly.

Whats your must have product from the US?
