Can you tell I’ve waited almost a year to get to May and use this alliteration? Oh I did! The little joys of blogging also lie in giving one’s posts the catchiest titles one can come up with, which more often than not fall flat but who cares? This Triple-M-Threat is all about my May makeup menu (another one!) which unfortunately hasn’t much changed from last month but hey! This should only tell you how much I am enjoying this lot here right?

Keeping Tabs On My Face Mask Stash

Face Masks For Sensitive Skin Oskia Renaissance Mask Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask REN 1 Minute Facial Pai Copaiba AHA Mask Aesop Parsley Seed Masque

The overflowing beauty stash problems strike again! This time a look at my face-mask-stash made me dizzy (not kidding!) I have obviously gone through a lot of face masks from the time I first got involved with beauty and its many attractions. While not all have been a success, there were some which I have come to like SO much that I wouldn’t mind parting with my money again in exchange! Also, if the title of this post sounds familiar that is because it is! I wrote some similar “literature” for my overflowing cleanser stash a while back which you can find here.

Things I’ll Never Be Without

Things I'll never be without Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide Nuxe Reve de miel Pai Echium and Argan Eye Cream Dior Nude BB Creme Dior nail color Grege Tweezerman mini slant tweezers Seche Vite Fast dry top coat Chanel Le blush creme Destiny Dior Lip Glow L'occitane shea butter hand cream

I am surprised this post didn’t make an appearance earlier because most of the products here have been a favorite for what feels like forever, and when I say I cannot “live without them” I mean every word! Don’t judge me, I know its just beauty products except they are not “just” beauty products, they are life savers on seriously bad skin days and days when I cannot wear makeup to save my life. Having these around is reassuring in the strangest way, like I have things I can fall back upon if nothing else works! You know?

The Big Sunday Post #3

Sephora Haul Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick Intense Nude Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Moisturiser

Happy Sunday to you! Apologies again for disappearing and I don’t even have a good excuse for the absence this time. Actually I do, I have the weather to blame! Its been cloudy here and given the short window of time I have in the mornings, I couldn’t take pictures or even so much as look at my camera. This weekend I decided I had to make do with whatever little light I get and take pictures. Rest assured you’ll have plenty to look forward to in the coming weeks!

Bottles In My Bath!

L'occitane rose shower gel, L'occitane Cherry Blossom shower gel, Dr. Bonner's Peppermint soap, Original Source Lavender and tea tree shower gel

There are three things about this post that you need to know: a) I was completely out of ideas for a new post b) I was “feeling” my bathroom and its contents, meaning, really happy with everything in there; like one of those face-masks-experiments-gone-right days! and c) I struggled with the title! Just couldn’t get my act together and give this post a catchier nicer title. Other than that, like I said everything here is really making me happy and working for me so I thought “write a post!” and here we are.
