Adventurous.

Hello beautiful people, I am kind of nervous to write this because, I don’t know what kind of feedback I might recieve, but a little disclaimer that, this my point of view, and if you feel like I have inspired you; that would make me the happiest person in this world.

Now, It’s been a long time since I wanted to write an inspirational post, basically one of the reasons I launched this blog. but I kind of lost my inspirational self along the years.

So, what made me write this post is a certain situations where it made me realize that some people get the idea of adventure wrong.

I love to travel, to experience different things, but being in a conservative family, of course that won’t happen a lot, since I only travel with my parents, plus I’m underage.

one time, I told my mom that my adventurous self is being held, and that I’m not free (as a joke of course!) and my sister laughed way too hard and said: “YOU?! adventurous?”. so, my sister’s definition of adventure is the life of a party, doing things your parents won’t approve to, smoking, doing all things wrong. whatever else is shit.. but it’s not.

and another time one of my older sisters, know a girl (personally) that (I am NOT judging here) lives the way that not many parents approve to. but she only talks to a certain type of people. like the good looking; men and women. and they called her as “fun” person. Although I also know this girl personally, and she’s kind of lovely, but being fun is not about doing all things wrong.

and did you know that I’ve had many failing experiences in trying to be rebellious, but as I told you; I failed. I wanted to be like my sisters and my cousins; rebellious, but I couldn’t, not because I’m coward or anything, because I like to have nothing to hide. plus, I’m really genuine. and like you might call me a goodie-goodie but I don’t care; I won’t try hard to be rebellious anymore. haha.

My point is, you don’t have to do something rebellious to call yourself Adventurous. You don’t have to do illegal things to call yourself Adventurous. You don’t have to live the life of a party (while you don’t like it) to call yourself Adventurous. You won’t believe how I felt so pressured because everyone my age and older, have done so many rebellious things, and I only did a few. I sort of felt like a grandma.

don’t get me wrong, I am NOT a saint, I’ve done countless of shitty things. like, you don’t even know! haha!

only 2 weeks ago I found out I’m not as rebellious as the rest, and I will never be. but that what makes me who I am; Shahad. Not to lie, I kind of felt bad to find that out about myself haha.

Now, I’ve been to parties, and I’ve done bad things, and I found out that this world is not for me.

If that is not the definition of adventure; what IS the definition of adventure?..

The definition of adventure (from my point of view) is living life with no limits; I’m not talking the wrong limits; no! I am talking about something that I always try to do.. Is to NEVER STOP LEARNING.. Even if it’s useless, something non-realistic, something that won’t help with real life, everything you learn will help you with your life, even the least piece of fact you know, might help you someday, so never stop learning.

The second point is, LOVE EVERYONE. we all feel some kind of relativity when we read those memes about hating people for no reason; I do that all the time. You don’t have to love as in LOVE people. just think positively towards people; people are much nicer now than years ago when you were in middle school, or high school, or even in elementary. If you see something nice about someone tell them, you’re making their day, YES there’s some people who mistake being nice for flirting, but who cares?! It’s what you feel afterwards that matters! the point is to BE NICE. Talk to everyone, not certain people. this is living the life with no limits. No limits to hobbies, no limits to learning, no limits to people. Travel as long as you can, go to countries that not many people no about, it’s fun! trust me.

This post is for the people who doesn’t like the rebellious life, and feels pressured to be one. and who doesn’t like the life of a party but feels pressured to live it.

If you like that life? Girl, you do what you love, love what you do. you do you, I’ll be doing me; and everyone will be happy. No judging, no hard feelings.

P.S. It’s okay to do something wrong every once in a while to add some Adrenaline in your life. I do that.

And also, try new things, like for example if never partied before, go ahead and try it; you may love it, you may hate it. no pressure.

So, that was it, I really hope you guys liked this post, it’s kind of new for me. please note that I’m not judging anyone here, everyone got a certain point of view. It’s just people who have a different opinion than me on being adventurous; sometimes they only think that doing something wrong is an adventure; SOME people. And as for people like me; who are not really much of a rebels, feel pressured sometimes; especially my age 16-17. where we want to grow up and be reasonable adults, but we still wanna have fun (any kind of it.)

Thank you so much for reading this post, and I’ll see you next time.

Please be nice, this is my first time. I could take the constructive criticism, but be nice.

Love, Shahad..//

REVIEW: Fair & White Paris Exclusive.

logo (1)

It’s finally here ! I’m finally writing it. so, this almost been like a pile on my shoulders, because I decided to review it the day that I started using it. while I might talk shit about it all the time, it’s just my opinion, and i’m here to tell you the things I didn’t like about it.

shall we start with the review? ..

so, today i’m going to review for you the “Exclusive”  range, and I’m only going to review the lotion and the Vitamin C serum.

i’m going to start with the lotion..

I got a photo from the internet, because i threw away the bottle when it got expired or rotten.

I got a photo from the internet, because i threw away the bottle when it got expired or rotten.

So, this is the Lait Corps Exclusive Whitenizer, which is basically a body lotion, to help rejuvenate the skin in order to make it lighter. and it’s suitable for all skin types.

so what it says on the bottle is that ” Developed with the utmost care by Labo.DERMA, the EXCLUSIVE Body Lotion ideally cares for pigmentary problems thanks to the enhanced performances of its ingredients. This EXCLUSIVE product rapidly diminishes unsightly spots and rapidly harmonizes your complexion. Its delicate fragrance, its rich and creamy texture give you a soft and nicely fruity skin. Apply regularly in the morning and evening on your clean skin.” 

Let’s compare between the size, and the shelf life of it.

Size: 500 ml / 17 fl.oz

Shelf life : 6 months from opening.

then it means this product will get expired before you finish it up, because for me it did.

talk consistency and scent.

the consistency of it, is quite runny (so, you’ll have to shake it with every use.) and when you shake it, the consistency gets thicker, and you kind of feel some texture into the mix.

the scent, is NOT pleasant at all, and in fact, it was almost the worst in the whole experience of it. so, it smells chemical, and if you’re sensitive to scents; i wouldn’t recommend it for you.

delivery system and application. 

DSC_2411 (1024x681) DSC_2412 (1024x681)

the delivery system isn’t my favorite, so i had to take it off, and when i took it off, it got easier.

the whole experience, did it cause any harm? did it do any good for me? 

now, some places in my body my skin tend to get sensitive around things, or maybe because those places were exposed to bacteria a lot, and it was closed off. tend to get some body acne, and some times i feel that this lotion was responsible of some of the body acne i got, because ever since i stopped using it, skin have been toned down with the acne a bit.

now, i’ve been using it for so long, and it didn’t do me a thing, like, i wanted to give it a second chance, but to be honest, Vaseline, Nivea, Jergens lotions are so much better than this.

so, i wouldn’t recommend this lotion.

Let’s talk about the serum.. Shall we?

DSC_2744 (1024x681) DSC_2745 (1024x681) DSC_2746 (1024x681)

Serum Exclusive Whitenizer with Vitamin C, a twofold efficacy (which i don’t know what it is!) and it’s suitable for all skin types.

So, what it says on the bottle and the website ” Its formula is richer in Vitamin C and aims at regulating melanin production and at clearing up your skin. This ultra-brightening care product illuminates your complexion, softens brown spots and refines your skin texture. Apply few drops morning and evening

comparing size and shelf life. 

Size : 30 ml / 1 fl.oz

Shelf life : 6 months

so, this is way too small now, (make up your mind FW Paris!) they both have the same shelf life, and one is 500 ml and the other is 30 ml. like that is really conflicted of them.

consistency and scent. 

it’s thicker than oil, but runnier than gel, so it was kind of pleasant to use.

as for the scent, it didn’t really have an obvious scent. but since it got Vitamin C in it, it had some orange hint in it.

delivery system and application. 

it got the same delivery system as the lotion, but i couldn’t take it off, due to the consistency differences, and the delivery system is much smaller on the serum.

the whole experience, did it do any harm? any good?

i gotta say, that i had much more pleasant experience with the serum than what i had with the lotion. at first i used it on my face, it was good, but then i felt like it was uncomfortable to use it on the face; so i used it on my body, it wasn’t bad either, but it didn’t do anything for me, at all, literally.

so, i liked it, it wasn’t all bad, but i think it didn’t do any good either.

that was all i had for the review, hope you found it informative, and helpful, and you liked it. so thank you for reading, i’m gonna go and throw away the bottles now. and i’ll see you next time.

Love, Shahad../

Shahad’s Beauty Book: Lip Balms.

DSC_2728 (1024x681)

Hello beauties ! Let’s talk lip balms, you know when you go to the drugstore and you see a pretty lip balm, only to find out it does everything but BALMS your lips?! I’ve been there girl! and now, I’ve got you covered! and here’s the guide of lip balms serving all kinds of lip balms (except the pot one, i stopped using them for no reason!) .

DSC_2730 (1024x681)

Matte Balms, Stick Form : Great for before makeup when you don’t want to ruin the finish of the lipstick. Especially this one “Labello Soft Rosé” is a cult favorite and it’s quite hydrating also, and it’s great before liquid lipsticks or matte lipsticks in general, because it’s more hydrating than other matte lip balms.

DSC_2731 (1024x681)

Glossy, Tube Form : works great if you wanted to add on top of a matte lip product. or any lip product in general if you wanted that glossy finish, plus this particular one “Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula, Dark Chocolate & Cherry” taste so good, which is always a winner. and it contains Vitamin E which got great hydrating properties.

DSC_2732 (1024x681)

The Tinted Stick Form : you can go out, have fun, you got your face on, but in reality; you’re wearing a colored chapstick but, whatever. as long as it adds color to your life, you’re set for the night, day, whenever! “Maybelline Baby Lips” is a well known baby, need no intro.

DSC_2734 (1024x681)

The “Almost” Dry Formula : this one is the absolute best for lip priming, because it’s kind of sticky (which is awesome for the lip product to stick) but not slippery, so you can line your lips with a lip pencil all the way, without it slipping and sliding. this one “Weleda Everon” got some beeswax in it, which explains the stickiness, and some natural Jojoba Oil, which soothes the lips, and the natural Shea Butter, which is known for the moisture and hydration, for it containing Vitamin E and other fatty acids and Carotene. and it’s an all natural lip balm.

DSC_2735 (1024x681)

The Classic : Clear, basic hydration, non-glossy, tasteless, and scentless. works great if you’re at a place where you’re not allowed to wear makeup or color (My school for example) and also if you’re just sitting at home doing nothing, and for flights, actually this one “Rituals Lip Balm” was given to my mom at a plane going to Germany.

you can find this Lip Balm here

That was it for today’s post really hope you found it helpful,and liked it, thank you so much for reading.

My Experience with Indie + Harper.

ih

so, around the time of April/May, i discovered this jewelry website called Indie and Harper, i discovered it through Twitter, and i loved their jewelry. so i went there and i ordered some stuff, and some are for my sister.

Starting off with a little description of the brand..

it’s an Australian brand, started as a small boutique,  started around 8 months ago, and it ships worldwide, and it’s an absolute bohemian brand, most of their jewelry are handmade.

Let’s talk about the prices..

their prices are quite expensive, due to how newbie the brand is. they can go up 60 aud. so, keep that in mind if it all really worth it.

all prices are in Australian Dollars.

Speaking of shipping..

-this is where i had a really hard time, the thing is.. they didn’t ask to put a phone number; so i didn’t, because this is the first time i ever order online. but there is a note section, i think it’s really helpful to apply your phone number so the shipping company knows that they should let you know about the package arriving.

-although they will ask you about the address of your post office, if you got a delivery straight to your house add the address to it.

P.S. if you live in KSA, they will deliver it to the Saudi Post, i added SMSA Express address, but they didn’t deliver it to SMSA, so keep that in mind.

-also you better buy the international tracking, because i had a hard time finding the tracking number. it’s only 20.00 aud.

these were all the tips that i can give you about it.

how about we do some hauling now!..

DSC_2715 (1024x681)

Rings.. (from left to right)

-Navajo Feather Ring.

-Dainty Opal Navajo Ring.

those were part of the “Navajo” collection, made by a Navajo Artisan.

and for my sisters, a ring and a necklace..

-Crescent and Full Moon Ring.

-Raw Quartz Silver Dipped Necklace.

both of these purchases are a part of the “Bohemian” collection.

and here’s a story about what happened before they shipped the package to me, i wanted to order another necklace, which is this one.

Raw Quartz Pendant Necklace.

Raw Quartz Pendant Necklace.

but before the day they shipped it to me, they found out that this necklace is sold out, so they traded it with the one below, for free.

Raw Quartz Silver Dipped Necklace.

Raw Quartz Silver Dipped Necklace.

and there’s still one necklace that i’m waiting for, and it’s a stunner! it’s an amazing necklace, and i’m so excited to have it, but it has been sold out since May, and they promised that they will ship it to me once they have it back in stock.

it’s the ISLA Quartz Pendant Necklace. (pictured below)

ISLA Quartz Pendant Necklace.

ISLA Quartz Pendant Necklace.

and the best thing about this website, is that they give you free stuff along the way.

DSC_2716 (1024x681)

-Dream Catcher Metallic Temp Tattoo.

-Lotus Flower Necklace. (which is not available on the site anymore, but they got one similar)

and i gave the necklace to one of my sisters, and i kept the tattoo for me, because i’m so excited to put it on between my neck and back. metallic temp tattoo are my current obsession.

and that’s all i can give you of an advice and a little haul, because, i almost regretted buying from them, but in the end it’s all worth it.

you can check out their website here.

be careful who you buy from, especially when you’re a first timer.

Love, Shahad../
