Meant to Last

 I've been looking for a type of lipstick that is long lasting to wear. I mean, when I put it on, it will stay on my lips for more than 8 hours and that I don't need to re-apply.  I've spotted few shades that I love at Clinique and M.A.C.


Mac Lip Pencil and Lipstick

Mac Plumful Lipstick


Mac Soar Lip Pencil

I ended up with M.A.C Plumful Lustre Lipstick and M.A.C Soar Lip Pencil. Since I want a long-lasting lipstick, I decided to get both. I follow few steps in applying my lipstick. 
  1. In order to remove the dry skin cells on my lips, I clean my lips with wet wipes.
  2. I apply lip balm of my choice or petroleum jelly. Remove any excess using a tissue.
  3. I will then apply the lip liner all around my lip and blend it using my finger tip. 
  4. For a precise application, I use a pointed and thin brush in applying lipstick. This also prevents clumps. 
  5. Blot off the excess lipstick using a tissue then put over a single ply of tissue over the lips and apply a thin coat of loose or pressed powder. This will make your lipstick stay longer on your lips.
  6. Finally put a thin layer of lipstick for a glossy finish. 
These two products of M.A.C are amazing. The colors that I got match my complexion. They are so easy to apply too. I can actually use the lip pencil to all shades of lipstick that I have. 

One thing that we should remember in buying cosmetics is that fake products exist. Buy your cosmetics in shops you trusted and in authorized sellers only. You certainly do not want to spend your money on something that's not going to give you the satisfaction you're looking for. 

I bought mine in one of M.A.C seller in Dublin called BT2 (Brown Thomas 2). The lipstick is €18.00 and the the lip pencil is €15.50. I'm happy with that. Besides, I'm going to use it for a year.

Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives.  Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside.  Colosseum admission fee: Full ticket - €18.00 EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25)  EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18) Opening hours: Mid February - mid March: 9 AM - 4.30 PM Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM End March - end August: 9 AM - 7.00 PM

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in

House as Clean as a Hound's Tooth

Modern cleaning products contain harmful ingredients. Anyone in contact with these products can be affected rendering health problems like irritations, allergies or even respiratory illnesses. It cannot be denied that  household cleaners  available in the market will give us outstanding results. But, are they truly safe for us to use? Be extra careful in choosing cleaning goods.
