mally beauty


Yesterday, July 29th, was National Lipstick Day! I’m a bit tardy to the party, but I really wanted to share this great product with you all!


I’m in love with the packaging. Ahhh (heart emoji)


Pucker up and perfect your pout  with Mally Beauty’s Instant Impact Lipstick Duo.

Top row – Extreme Nude ; Bottom row – Fierce Coral Pink


The packaging for the Mally lipsticks is a thing a beauty. Encased in metallic gold tubes and shaped like crayons, so chic and cute at the same time! This a lipstick I’m proud to whip out in public.  The formula contains vitamin E, mango butter and almond oil, leaving lips feeling moisturized, buttery and smooth– not at all dry or sticky. Really lovely!

Uncapped and swatched. I’ve got a bit a tan since the last post!


The creamy lipsticks boasts a high pigment and will make your lips look luscious and sleek. Give yourself a bright coral lip or opt for a neutral nude with the duo. The rich and luxurious color offer a shine and fullness that will give you an enviable pout every day.

Definitely be sure to pick these beauts up. They’re a good size at 0.09 oz/2.5g, which measn they’ll last you a for a quite a bit! Oh! And they’re on sale! Go, go, go!

The Secret to Youthful Skin in a Flash

Have you noticed your skin doesn’t look as youthful as it did before? Do you wish you could turn back the clock? I’m here to tell you that you can! Anybody can turn back the clock, and best of all, it doesn’t need to take very long at all! If you want to know the secret to youthful skin in a flash, read on…

Get Plenty of Sleep

Sleep plays a massive part in how youthful your skin looks. If you don’t get a good, quality night’s sleep regularly, it will take its toll on your skin. You’ll get premature wrinkles, your skin will look dull, and you’ll have dark circles to top it off. Make sure you get at least 7 hours of sleep a night. Some people need a little more or less than others, but it all depends on the person. 7 is the average and a good number to aim for.

Keep Yourself Hydrated

Hydrated skin is happy skin! Not only is water good for your skin, it’s good for the rest of your body too. Drinking 2 litres of water a day will ensure your skin glows and flushes out toxins. If you commit to drinking a big bottle every day, you should soon notice the difference.


Fill Up on Natural Foods

Natural food is so much better for the skin than processed junk. Sugary food can make the skin spotty and aged too, so make sure you keep sugary foods low (even fruit!). Eat plenty of vegetables, and make sure you get enough healthy fats in your diet. Avocado, egg yolk, nut butters, seeds, and similar healthy fats are great for skin.


Use Special Products

There are a few special products out there that people swear by when it comes to youthful looking skin. Pure emu oil has many uses, and one of them is to make the skin look more youthful. There are a number of face creams and serums that are said to work wonders too. The key is to do a little research and know your skin type, so you can select the perfect product for your skin.


Book in for a Beauty Treatment

Certain beauty treatments can help you to turn back the years. Prescription facials are specifically designed for your skin, so after a course of treatments you should notice younger looking skin. There’s also microdermabrasion, which polishes off the top layer of skin to reveal smoother, younger looking skin. Treat yourself and you won’t regret it!



Exercise is a brilliant yet natural way to get more youthful looking skin. If you take a look at somebody who exercises and somebody who doesn’t, you’ll notice that the one who exercises looks much younger. Exercise has many different benefits, but more youthful skin is definitely one of the best.

It shouldn’t be long before you start noticing a difference in your skin with these tips. If you have any tips of your own, leave a comment below. Thanks for reading!



South Street Seaport, NYC

As a native NYer, and foodie, and wannabe mixologist, and frequent user of the word, “and”,  I have to tell you, it is hard to find a great restaurant in the city with a view of the water. With the whole Williamsburg movement, it seemed for a while that all the great restaurants were opening over there in bearded hipster land. So you can imagine my surprise when I came to find that NYC’s newest hot spot is nowhere to be found in the flowing, thick rimmed, plaid button down land of Williamsburg, but just across the East River right in the South Street Seaport. Executive Chef Marc Arnold takes the helm on this beautiful, waterfront bar/restaurant and offers up the most exquisite and unadulterated views of the water. Perfect for a date or a dinner catch up sesh with friends, INDUSTRY KITCHEN will impress not just your friends, but your tastebuds as well!


I joined Industry Kitchen for their Sunset launch party as  free flowing red and white sangrias, signature mojitos and cocktails whizzed right by my head. An after work crowd of fashionable folks popped by as well to enjoy the delicious samplers like grilled peaches with ricotta cheese, fresh salmon cucumber bites and freshly made pizzas. Directly in front of the restaurant, runners sped by and couples took romantic walks with their dogs. Besides the romantic setting, the architecture of the place itself is very industrial and cool. Angled, florescent lights decorate the open bar, and a theme of reclaimed wood makes it’s presence amongst the ceiling and floors.  Really great design and architecture. Delicious foods. Amazing cocktails and wine list. This is a very romantic and hip place friends, if you go on a date, please don’t go grab a drink at any what bar…this is the perfect spot.
