Another Born Pretty Store Delivery :)

Hi Everyone! Good morning from Malta!  Today I took a day off so that I can finish off some errands and decided to catch on some sleep but the Postman woke me up!  I was so glad to find him holding a big parcel form me :D  I was missing a parcel from Born Pretty Store and had just contacted Customer Care the other day because I couldn't track it and I was told that they will inquire with the Post Office.  Now I just realized that the Post Office never scanned the item and so I couldn't track it but I am still glad that it arrived safe and sound! These particular items have quite  a little history. I had purchased them using the BPS Point system way back in October but for some reason I forgot to pay the tracking fee.  Up until Christmas they hadn't arrived so I contacted BornPrettyStore and told them about it. I was advised to pay for a tracking number and they will reship everything and so I did and now I got the items :)  I am sure that someone somewhere stole the first parcel and whoever it is he or she should be ashamed.  No one is supposed to touch other people's post whatever it is! My father used to be a Postman back in the day, and they had an oath to take to never to touch anything in the post or tell on people. Back in the day, thing were taken more seriously.. nowadays we are getting more unscrupulous people roaming around. BUT MY POSTMAN, he is a good guy :) Delivers everything right to my doorstep ;)

Enough bla bla bla and on to some pictures of what I got :)

Sorry about the background... that is mum's kitchen table cloth :) Here is the whole lot!

I am a sucker for animal print and when I ordered these I had in mind to match them up with a python boots that I had ordered. None managed to arrive in time for Christmas though :)

How cute is this box?! I really love the matching polka dot bow :) And inside this really cute box I found:

This gorgeous bracelet watch.  There was even an extra battery :) The piece is giving away the time of the photo as well hehe :)  This is the first time I got myself this style of watch so I am excited to try it out and see how it fits with my style :)

And finally here are the so much awaited nail polishes. I ran out on mostly all colours so I decided to order the first pack from the BK Series and got myself the first 18 colours.  They vary between orange shades, greens, blues and neutrals to browns. I will be swatching them all for you, but not anytime soon because I have a nasty broken nail to deal with and I don't have much time waiting around for nail polish with all the stuff that I need to have ready before the wedding!

Here are some links for you if you guys are interested in trying them out. All you have to do is click on the pictures and you will be directed.

18 Colors BK Sweet Candy Fast Dry Nail Art Polish/ 25-42#
Well I guess that is it for today.. I better be off and get something done as it is getting late!

Nail Haul from BornPrettyStore :)

Hello Everyone :)  I just received the Nail Decorations Haul which I purchased from Born Pretty Store during the December Sales and couldn't wait to share it with you.  This post is a little heavy on pictures so give it some time to load :)

I really love using water decals so I stocked up on enough to see me through Spring :) Here are the items I got and they are linked to the actual sales page to help you guys go directly if you are interested in purchasing them :) All you have to do is click on the pictures :)

This is a set containing a pick up pencil, a glue and a palette, which are needed to apply rhinestones to your nails.  The pencil wasn't sharpened and the glue tip is separate from the actual product so that you can fix it when you actually want to use it.



These are really gorgeous rhinestones in 12 different colours. Actually I found two packets of red ones but they are really pretty and small , only 1.5mm, so they will look extra cute when added to the water decals :)


 These are cute black and white with silver glitter water decals. The patterns include zebra and leopard print!


These are cute half flowers and some are even quarters and should look great for a springy manicure.


This sheet contains  11 sheets of different snow flakes and other Christmas related designs such as snowmen, presents and angels.  I am saving this one for the next Christmas Period.


Here is another sheet featuring 11 black and white designs. I am planning on matching these with gorgeous spring and summer colours to add that extra refined touch to the manicure and make it look graceful :)


This sheet features 4 designs in black and white. I am going to separate them and get even more out of these designs.

Here are more black designs to add that extra sophisticated look to plain nail colours :)


This sheet features 10 gold designs. I am not a super gold fan but I kind of fell in love with these cuties and bought them :)

And this was given to me as a gift by Born Pretty Store Staff and is super cute :) I am sorry that I cannot provide a link for this particular product.

What do you think of my haul? I am so excited to start trying everything out.. too bad I have a badly broken nail which is hurting a real lot.  But it will soon grow to match the others and then I will start working with these beautiful decals :) I am still waiting for another parcel to arrive from BornPrettyStore and it has got some gorgeous nail polishes and a watch in it that I just can't wait to try out. I hope it doesn't take too long to arrive!

Anyways, let me know what you think in the comments below :)

Till next post,

The Saem Bulgarian Complex Sheet Mask - Mini Review :)

Hello Everyone!  How have you been?  I am really really busy right now but I just had to share this review with you as I have been promising it for too long now :)  Today I want to share with you my experience with a sheet mask that I was gifted by W2Beauty a while ago.  It is from The Saem and apparently you cannot purchase it from anywhere as it is some kind of sample or gift. In any case I enjoyed using it a lot and I had the pleasure to try it out while I was on a working trip in Brussels. 

So here is a little description of the Mask Sheet :)

This mask sheet is marked as not being offerred for sale and has the following description on the packaging:
To All the world through Nature and the mind of The Saem. Containing Bulgarian Complex which brings comfort to tired skin. This is a Sheet Mask.
The above is my poor translation. Here is the actual Hangul version:

Maybe someone can provide a better translation as mine is heavily aided by google translate. My Korean is still very very poor :(

Anyway on to my review.. This mask is said to contain a lot of flower extracts mainly Bulgarian Rose, Chamomile, and Calendula extracts and should help perk up tired skin.
My Experience:
I applied this mask when I was in Brussels last October. I was sent there to represent the Authority I work for at the CITES Enforcement Group meeting and had an overnight stay.  I didn't have time to scrub off my skin as should be done because I wasn't at home and was lacking my products. So I applied this after cleaning up the day's makeup.  The mask has a nice fitting with only a few minor kinks that are expectable since it is a one-size-fits-all sheet.  It was soaked in serum as well and I had to be careful not to drip here and there.  The sachet is also extremely easy to open :) I so love how korean brands make their sachets easy to open with two dents, one on each side, as opposed to European single dented sachets (sometimes these are absent!) 

I wore the mask for a little over than an hour and it had dried completely.. the serum wasn't fully absorbed by my skin by then so I gave it a pat and waited a little bit until my face didn't feel tacky before crashing to bed. As opposed to other brands that I tried, this one is absorbed really fast... my skin wasn't prefectly prepared... you should scrub before applying a mask so that the serum absorbs faster but anyway...In the morning my face felt really smooth and elastic, and looked very fresh as well.
Overall the mask did perk up my skin and I felt it relieved and more supple.  If you manage to get hold of this mask, I suggest you wait for Friday night (a relaxed one)  clean your face and scrub it up and relax with this little beauty, especially if you work Monday to Friday like me.  It will revitalize your skin.. and don't forget your beauty sleep.. something I am really lacking on these days :(
I got my The Saem Mask from W2Beauty which she sent me with my last HairCare Haul which you can find here.  You can ask her to drop one in with your next order :)  You can have a look at her store using the link on the side of the blog, she has over 10000 products from where to choose and they are nicely organised by brand :) 


My Verdict is 4 Pink Diamonds, where I reduce 1 because it is not for sale :(  I would love to stash up on this one to perk up after tiring weeks of work :)

I hope you found this review helpful :) As an added bonus today I am going to share with you a selca from my stay in Brussels :)

Till next post,
Saranghae :)
