{food} Nature's Gifts Store review

Hello everyone, this post is going to be about a website I just discovered.

NGS is a healthy food store that was created in 2010, they offer high quality and completely natural products, I ordered dried mango and dried banana to give them a try since everyone is raving about dried fruit... and let me tell you that now I understand what the hype is all about!

I liked them both but the mango was my favorite. it's sweet, chewy ,and so addictive!

What I liked about NGS is that they deliver in the same day which is genius! I'm hooked and I can't wait for my next order.

P.S. this post is not sponsored I'm just so in love with them.

until we meet again mama

A month ago, I lost my mom.. She was the most amazing, caring, peaceful person in the world.
There are no words to describe the pain and the heartache that I feel. I miss our talks, our laughs, I miss seeing her sitting on her favorite chair.

This post is a nostalgic one, for the 90's kid in you.. 

- The tattoo choker was the most stylish piece of accessories you had.
- Clueless was your favorite movie and Cher was a fashion icon back then!
- Used to eat a whole pack of Tiny Chiclets in one go.
- Danced to Spice Up Your Life and Backstreet's Back all the time, and you had posters for Spice Girls, Hanson, and 'N Sync on your bedroom walls.
- You had at least one bottle of Impulse spray during your childhood/teenage years.
- Stick-On earrings were a HUGE thing.
- Bubble gum with tattoos was a trend, and you used to put the tattoo on the back of your hand -or was it just me :)

Do you have anything to add to the list?

May favorites

Hello, Girlies.. I know it's early to post May favorites but I was asked to do it so I thought why not today. This month I'm very excited to share my favorites, Let's go..

Lady Gaga Fame I got this perfume few months ago but I haven't got the chance to wear it until recently and I loved it, it's a unique scent, for me it's a mix between honey and  musk.. I just love it.

Artdeco Perfect Teint Concealer #6 Artdeco is a German brand that I didn't hear about before getting this concealer, the coverage is okay but I use it to highlight and it does an amazing job, the only con is that it was too pricey.

NYX Matte Lip Cream in Ibiza I wear it every day, I don't put anything else on my lips, I love it so much that I want to get all the colors.

Beauty Credit Fresh Kiwi & Yogurt mask Beauty Credit is a Korean brand, I tried a mascara and a lip gloss from this brand before and I liked them so I wanted to try the skincare, since the Korean skincare is a trend now. I loved the mask, it moisturises and lives your skin soft and bright, and it wasn't expensive at all!

She Nail polish the color doesn't have a name but it's like fuchsia ,purple and pink in one nail polish.
Benna Chocolate cake it's cake filled and covered with chocolate , it's the perfect post-lunch treat. 

Whiplash Where do I begin? this movie is brilliant! J.K. Simmons is brilliant! the soundtrack is great! The last 7 minutes in the movies were so intense, The movie is not just about a boy who wants to become a professional drummer and his mentor is an as*hole, I think it has a deeper meaning than that.. Just do yourself a favor and watch it if you haven't yet.

a face powder brush that I totally forgot where I got it from

empties #2 :products I've used up

 Hello Girlies, let's go through my trash before I get rid of it...

 Bioderma sensibio Light .. I LOVE this product, I love Bioderma products in general but this one is the best day cream ever, and it's a great makeup base as well ,I already have a backup.

Moschino Pink bouquet perfume .. I got this sample in subscription box, it's not bad but it's not my cup of tea.

Maybelline Define A-Lash mascara .. I've had this mascara since this post so I had to throw it away, I probably won't repurchase it.

Sebamed Antibacterial Cleansing Foam .. that was my second bottle, I've been using this product for almost a year and I really like it as a morning face wash, currently am using Body Shop tea tree facial wash and once I finish it I'll go back to Sebamed cleansing foam.

Garnier BB Cream (Light) .. It's great for my oily skin, I'm in the middle of the second bottle.

2 Maybelline Colossal Kajal .. It's creamy and nice but not black enough, I don't know if I will repurchase it.

Garnier Essentials night cream .. I didn't feel any difference, I'm not repurchasing it,

Bath&Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar body mist .. can we just take a minute to appreciate this scent?! whoever came up with this scent is a genius, I'll definitely repurchase it.

Police Dark fragrance .. I really liked it although it reminds me of a perfume an old lady would wear but I don't care I'll repurchase it. 

Easy Baby Care wipes .. I usually use baby wipes as makeup remover but this one is not my favorite, it smells like baby powder which is not a nice scent to have on your face, I won't repurchase.

Septona cotton rounds .. never heard of this brand before but it did the job, I already have a backup of these.

Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask .. I liked it, it has a lot of product so I got 2 uses out of it, it left my skin smooth and didn't break me out, definitely I'm going to repurchase it.

How about you, Ladies? what's in your trash bag?

5 products I currently use

Hello Girlies, today I'm posting about 5 products that I'm using at the moment, some of them I like and some of them I'm using just to finish up and never buy them again.

1. Body Shop shea eau de toilette This is my favorite scent from the Body Shop, it's a bit musky and clean, the only con is that I have to re-apply it like every 2 hours or so, I just ran out of my second bottle and I will purchase it again.
2. Garnier Light Brightening Eye Roller the main reason I purchased it is to reduce my under-eye circles but I didn't see any difference, I just can't wait to finish this one up and not repurchasing again.
3. Avon Foot Works It's like a gentle scrub for foot, it's nice and it wasn't expensive so I would repurchase again.
4. Rimmle Volume Flash I had this mascara for awhile and I forgot about it and I rediscovered it again when I looked through my collection, it's definitely a great mascara, it gives nice long thick lashes, I would purchase again.
5. Purederm nose pore strips If you follow me on Instagram you would know that I'm a HUGE Purederm fan and I love all their stuff, it has 6 strips but it last me almost 5 months, I went through a box and I have a backup.

quick food (and other stuff) haul

Since I'm a nosey person and I love to see what's in other people's grocery bags and food hauls (you should see my You Tube history!) so I thought why not doing a mini food haul, Let's jump right in my shopping bag

light mayo .. gotta have it in my fridge
Tuna can .. for tomorrow's lunch sandwich
Kiwi .. favorite fruit at the moment 
lots of chocolate .. you never know when you're going to need it
baby wipes .. it's not food but I needed a new pack
