♥ Red ♥

Hello, beautiful ladies! :) Red symbolises fierce or anger but for me, red also symbolises Christmas! Ohh, it's the most wonderful time of the year :)  I don't know what to post so I decided to put-on make up, do my nails and take photos. This is just a simple eye-makeup look and shocked by red lipstick.  I was inspired to do this because we just put up our Christmas tree and I feel Christmassy so I decided to do this and I think this look is perfect with black dress :)

 
I used Next Cashmere Eyeshadow Palette and the Smokey Eyeshadow Palette by H&M. For eyebrows, I used the matte dark brown colour from H&M 36x palette and Avon Superextend Extreme Mascara in the shade black.
 
 
 
 
For my lips, I decided to Line it with MUA Lip liner and Avon lipstick.
 I know, I don't have the longest nose but, hey, at least I have a nose and I am thankful for it because with it I am able to breathe.
 
 
For my nails, I also decided to paint it red. I used Avon and Deborah Lippmann. I forgot to take a photo of it but I might do a nail tutorial so you might see it :) Comment down below if you want me to do one.
 

 
And then, the overall look. Hashtag selfie. I'm just actually wearing a pink vest :p Below are some of the products that I used in this look.
 

 
 Maxfactor Powder in the shade Nouveau Beige.
 

Avon Lipstick and Eye primer.
 


Avon Eye liner in the shade Pitch black and MUA lip liner in the shade Red Drama.
 

 
Thanks for visiting my blog and reading this. Please comment down below if you want to see a nail tutorial or if you want to see OOTD. Have a lovely weekend :)
 
 
 
 
Take care.
xoxo, Xyza

♥ Summer 2013 #tbt ♥

 
Hi, Angels! I had a crappy day at school yesterday and today so I decided to look at some photos from summer. I love taking photos so much so I decided I will upload them here. I know winter is coming but hopefully you'll feel warm seeing these photos. (That sounds weird) Haha!
 
Anyways, I live like 5 minutes away from the beach  (Ballyholme Beach) and this is what it looks like.
  

Then, here's a stolen shot of a lady walking her dog.
 
 
Then, meet my friends and I :) Unfortunately, my bestfriend wasn't there on out beach day because she was on a holiday in Turkey. So these are just my lovely group of friends that I hang out with! :)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And of course, a typical teenager photo :p
 
 
 
 
As you can see, this day was taken on a lovely sunny day. The children were very happy playing with the sands, lovers looked so romantic walking on the beach with holding hands and teenagers enjoyed listening to their music while watching others play. The beach was beautiful and the blue sky reflected on water which makes it very alluring to the eyes.
 
Every summer has a story and my summer 2013 was wonderful. I can't wait to face another year and create another summer memory.  2013 will fly by and booom!! you'll say hello to Summer 2014. But before that, we need to think about Christmas, New Year, Valentines Day, Easter, and then Summer. Ahhh. Can't wait! :p
 
I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER!
 
WINTER IS COMING.
 
 
 
 
 
Take care.

♥ Mini Haul ♥

So, yesterday I went to Superdrug to buy the Rimmel Translucent Powder because I've heard good reviews about it and it's Tanya Burr's favourite powder. And guess, what? I ended up picking other items, so I thought I'd share it with you guys! :) These are all drugstore products.



 

The first thing I picked up was the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. This is in the shade 001 Translucent. This is only £3.99!

 
 
 
I never use face primer because I don't usually wear make-up but I  picked up the Rimmel Fix and Perfect Pro Primer anyways. I haven't tried this one yet but I'm excited as it says 5 in 1 results. It's 30 ml so it's like the same amount of the normal foundation bottles.
 
 
 
I ran out of blusher so I picked one and it is the L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Blush. I got really excited when I saw this coz I've never seen any BB Blush before. Haha! It is 15 ml and it's in the shade Universal Rosy Blush. This is only £7.99.
 
 
I really want to have a mascara collection! If there's only one makeup I could wear, it would be mascara. However, I don't really use it often as I couldn't be bothered taking them off. Lazy me! Anyways, I picked up one and it's Maybelline the Colossal Volume Express Cat Eyes Mascara. I've tried this on already and I absolutely love it! This one is only £6.99 and it's 9.5 ml. I actually forgot to include this in the first photo because I separated it with my other mascaras.
 
 
 
 
 
The brush is really cool. It makes your lashes longer and fuller and it flares out the corner lashes.
 
 
Last time I went shopping, I saw the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge but didn't but it because I don't usually use sponge. But, I got it yesterday and can't wait to try it. It's only £4.99 which is cheap compared to the Models Own one.
 
 
It's an oval with a cut out at the top so I would say it's an oval wedge. Haha! I know it's not a word but I'm not good in describing things.
 
 
Being fascinated by sponges, I also picked up the Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert. It's only £4.99 so, why not try?

 
Again, I don't know how to explain the shape of this bit here's the close up.
 
 
Lastly, I picked up hair products. I just bleached my hair about a month ago and re-bleached it last Wednesday 30th October. I know it was a bad idea but I did it anyways. So now, I feel sorry for the ends of my hair. It's not totally damaged but the texture feels different than my usual hair. I am a TRESemme fan, so I picked up some products.  These are the TRESemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Hairspray and TRESemme Keratin Deep Treatment Masque.
 
 
That's it guys. Hope you enjoyed reading this post. Happy Sabbath and have a lovely weekend! :)
 
 
Take care.

♥ First Post ♥


Hi, there! This is my first post and I just want to show you the Spring/Sumer 2014 collections that I adore. First, I'm going to show you the Elie Saab collection. Before I go any further, I just want to let you know that I don't own the photos in this post.


 
 
 
 
Elie Saab never fails to design amazing dresses! There are more dresses that I love in this collection but I'm afraid this post would end up with all the dresses. So, you can just go to www.eliesaab.com if you haven't seen their new collection yet.
 
Now, let's take a moment and appreciate Valentino's Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
 
 
 
 


 
I'm really tired right now so I might edit this post later :)
