random makeup tip

A typical mascara dries out before half of it is used. When your favorite mascara starts getting dry, add 4-5 drops of saline solution or eye drops to the bottle. Insert your wand and stir and your mascara is brand new again! This can be repeated 2 or 3 times until all your mascara is gone.

Heba rambles: on being 25

I'm turning 25 next Saturday, and OMDG! lots of things have changed since my last birthday post.. lots of ups and downs, lots of stuff i learned and i want to share some of them with you, loves.

1. never, never, ever skip breakfast. I used to think that i'm not a breakfast eater until i realized how it really helps losing weight and how it gives your body the energy to burn more calories.

2. always watch/read something funny before bed, you'll be amazed how it will boost your mood next morning, I love to watch Seinfeld or read Donald Duck comics before sleep :)

3. always invest in a good foundation. There's nothing worse than the look of cheap foundation. 

4. don't buy cupcakes, bake them.. It is so much fun and the smell of baking is another mood booster ;)

October favorites

Hello girls, how was your weekend? it's time for my October favorites a.k.a fall favorites:
Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda concealer palette
I ordered this palette from here. It comes with 2 different concealer shades, 1 neutralizer, and 1 translucent powder.. on Target website they said it comes with 2 applicator brushes but it didn't which is annoying but about the quality and the texture of the concealer are really good.

Home Tenders Pumpkin spice candle 
This is my first scented candle ever, i'm planning on stocking up on it.

Oriflame Pure Colour nail polish in Baby Pink 
Although baby pink is not very popular this fall, I'm very into it .It is very creamy and dries very fast.. I ordered it from here.

Bon Bons Shampoo&Body wash by Malizia
Its not like any body wash I used before ,its scent last for hours.

And Finally, Cadbury cocoa 
What could be more perfect than a cup of hot cocoa while watching Gossip Girl?! Actually, that's my favorite thing about fall!

How about you ,ladies? What's your favorite thing about fall?
