My Night Routine (Fall/ Winter Edition)

       Hello my angels, how are you? I'm better than before el hamdulilah. I want to thank you guys for your all sweet messages and Insta stories, your lovely words mean the world to me. So, today's article is about my night routine, well I'm not going to tell you HEY GIRLS I JUST COME BACK FROM WORD AND THIS WHAT DO TO TAKE CARE OF MYSELF EVERY SINGLE DAY AND THAT BLABLABLA THING. Hell no, a) for the moment I am unemployed; I really want to work in the makeup industry or for a magazine unfortunately nothing is available for now (kach khdma lol), b) most of the days, you just want to take your makeup off and sleep (no mask, no cream, no anything just to sleep). So, let's get started!!!!

1- Garnier SkinActive Biphase Micellaire Tout en 1:
 Since the weather has been changing so much over the last 6 weeks or so my skin has become so dry I didn't know what to do.  I bought this makeup remover after reading a lot of reviews on it. If I'm wearing makeup or not, I always use this makeup remover.  As long as you shake this product before use it doesn't leave your skin greasy. It is the bomb, it removes very well even waterproof makeup. It leaves mine feeling clean, hydrated & soft. I would absolutely recommend you to buy it and I for sure will purchase this again.

2- Garnier SkinActive Pure Active 3 in 1 (Wash, Scrub and Mask):
I use this almost 3 times per week, I remove my makeup and put this one as a mask, leave it until it dries and then wash it off. It  definitely improved my skin: less breakouts, whiteheads and pimples. This product also has salicylic acid, zinc and clay which are amazing for skin. One more thing, this product is ideal for oily and combination skin.

3- L'oreal Hydra-Total 5 Night Cream:
I'm using L'orΓ©al Hydra-Total 5 which: hydrates, regenerates, strengthens, nourishes and rests the skin all night. I've been using this cream face for about 2 years and I'm in love with it, so I do recommend you to purchase it.

4- Nuxe Hand and Nail Cream: 
This is my second purchase of this product because it  is amazing. 
I use this product every evening before bedtime and at various times during the day. I have noticed that this hand cream moisturizes my dry skin very well and it softens it amazingly.  It smells lovely, lasts well and does my hands a lot of good. Also, it has improved my nail health so much than they have ever been. For a first try of Nuxe products, I'm impressed and I will definitely buy another stuff.

5- Neutrogena Lip Balm SPF 20: 
I freaking love this product because a) it nourishes my lips b) it protects them in all weather conditions. This moisture-enriched formula soothes and conditions your lips, keeping them healthy looking and soft in all weather. Contains a  SPF 20 sunblock for added protection from the sun. 

Night Night 
If it really cold and I want something comfy and cute I wear this pyjama:

In case I want something classy and elegant, well this one is the best:

Well, lately I'm obsessed with:
Oum Walid:

Travel With Me: Barcelona

What's up guys? how is going? As many of you, especially for the ones who are following me on Instagram, know that I got married and I went to Barcelona for my honeymoon. So, today's article will be a blog-vlog about my trip.

1- Visa: 
I don't know the exact procedures because my husband took care of everything. So, just check out the Spain Embassy's official website to get information.

2- Fly Ticket: 
Fly tickets usually differ in price according to seasons, companies, type of seats and stop-overs. Well, we took a direct flight from Algeirs to Barcelona with a suitable price (24000 da per person).

3- Hotel :
As fly tickets, hotels also differ according to location, seasons, stars, stuff and so on. So, my advice to you is if you find a great hotel with a wonderful price GOOOO and book it especially if you're certain about your trip duration. Guys don't make the same mistake as we did, we booked the hotel on the 1st of August and the check-in date was the 16. Well, it costs us about 120000 da (Yes I know a looot but it worth it lol) for 5 days with no breakfast option. Anyways, the hotel that we picked up was amazzzzing, it's name is Catalonia Barcelona Golf *** and it's location was amazing too (about 2km from Las Ramblas). 

PS. Here you are its link 

4- Places to Visit:
Barcelona is one of Europe's largest and greatest  city to explore, you'll have many options to see and visit. Unfortunately, you can not scout it as you want/ wish especially if you are on a budget or a short time trip. So, this what we did.

- First day: we did not do any thing special because we arrived at 7pm, so we just explored Diagonal Avenue at night and that's it.

-Second day: we decided to go to the Camp Nou in the morning and Barcelona Aquarium in the afternoon. So, this is what happened:
* We bought a T10 metro-bus-tram card that costs 10 euro (we shared together) and then we took a metro from Diagonal Avenue to Maria Cristina. We just walked for a couple of minutes and BOOM we are facing Camp Nou. The latter is an incredible stadium with an amazing view and very helpful stuff. The ticket to go visit the museum and stadium charges 25 euro for a person. All in all, it was an unbelievable experience.

* In the afternoon, we went to Barcelona Aquarium in which we explored  under the sea world and took several pictures of unbelievable kinds of fish. Then, we went to the Maremagnum Mall and unfortunately we found a lot of stores were closing because of the terrorist attack. So, we panicked a little a bit and we decided to go back to the hotel ( it took us about 1 hour and half of walking to go back, everything was closed).
- Day 3: we wanted to go to somewhere safe and far from Las ramblas/ Placa de Cataluniya attempt, so we decided to see L'illa Mall near Maria Cristina metro station. We did a huge amount of shopping especially from Primark and Lush.

- Day 4: we chose to discover more about Barcelona by touristic bus for all day. We first started with the red line and we stopped at Maremagnum station to eat the famous traditional dish Paella Marinera (the restaurant called Mirando al Mar and its Paella is totally Halal: no chicken no wine). Then, we took the blue line and saw another sights of the beautiful Barcelona.
-Day 5: our last day, we went back home :((((.

5- Tips:
- If you're a group of people, you can buy one ticket of T10 and share it together.
- There is an Aerobus which you can take it from Al Prat Barcelona airport to Placa de Cataluniya and vice versa, its charge is 5,90€ per person.
- It is a little difficult to find Halal food in Barcelona, so you have an option wether to purchase vegetarian food or Sushi.
- Keep your bag close to you because there are a lot of thieves in Barcelona. 
- If you are looking to buy cosmetics products with a good price, Barcelona is the best especially during summer sales (1st july till the end of August).

Well, this is it for today's article, I hope you enjoyed reading it. Don't forget to invite your friends to see the article and to check out my Instagram, stay tuned for more and I Love You.

5 Beauty Hacks I Actually Use

      What's up my angels, how is going with you? how is school? uni? work?. I'm sooo excited because it is officially fall in Algeria YAAAAAY. So, for today's article I thought to talk about beauty hacks that I truly use every time. Whenever I see articles, videos and stuff about beauty tricks, I wonder if they actually work?. Well, honestly speaking, I tried a lot of the hacks and I found some of them were very helpful and did a great job for me, so hopefully they will work for you too.

1-  You know when you have that eyeliner pencil which is looking great when you swatch it on your hand, and as soon as you try it  you will see nothing. Well, my ladies I have the solution but you need to be careful, all you need is a lighter/ match and then poke the eyeliner nib onto it for about a second, then you have to blowing it to make sure that it is nice and cool and that's it.

2- Cocoanut oil has become one of my favorite things I use for my hair, body and also for my face. So, recently I use it as a makeup remover and trust me it works amaziiing even if you have a waterproof eye makeup. In addition, I noticed that cocoanut oil helped my eyelashes to grow so YEEEES. 

3- This next hack is for the ones who love to wear matte lipsticks but all they have is glossy lipsticks. So, wear any lipstick that you like and then put on a tissue or toilet paper. After, take a brush with a translucent powder and place that over your lipstick. It looks really silly but I promise you it works really good and as a result you lipstick becomes a matt plus this hack prevents the lipstick from getting on your teeth. 

4- We all had those days when we forgotten some sort of makeup especially blush and this super sucks lol. Well,  you need a lipstick and simply just put a little of bit onto your fingers and start dabbing it on your cheeks. Voila, you have a glowing beautiful cheeks.

5- We all love nail polish but we get very mad when we get all over. So, for this trick you need a makeup brush with nail polish remover and simply use that brush to clean away any kind of edges where you may messed up.

         Well, this is my article for today I hope you enjoyed reading it, don't forget to tag your friends to see it and check out my Instagram. Stay tune for more and I Love You.

Homemade Facial Masks

Helloooo beautiful ladies, how is it going? It has been a long time since I've posted a blog, I'm so sorry but it was for a good reason lol I got married Yaaaaay Meeeee 😁😁. Anyways, let's get started!!!
Couple weeks before my wedding, I decided to care of my skin as any bride lol. I looked up for facial homemade masks and I found a lot, so I chose masks that suite all skin type and their ingredients can be found in any kitchen.

1- Egg and tissue mask: this mask is so easy to make and apply. All you need is the clear liquid of an egg (the white part, albumen or the glair/glaire) and a tissue. First, put the white part in a container and mix it. Then, apply it on your face with your hand/face brush and put on it a tissue (you can cut it into 4 parts: forehead; nose; two cheeks). Let this mask dries very well and then rinse it with lukewarm water. 

2- Natural green/white clay: you can find this ingredient at any perfumer or spice dealer. What you need is two spoons of powder clay and rose water (in case you don't have the latter, you can use mineral/ tap water). Mix the two components together and apply the mixture on your face carefully. Keep the mask on your face until it dries and then clean with a lukewarm water.

3- Honey: this is the easiest mask ever, I think we all have honey in our kitchen, right? So, apply the honey on your face for about 15 to 20 minutes then rinse it with lukewarm water and that's it lol.

5 Apps You Must Download Before Traveling

      Helloooooo beautiful people, how is going with summer? heat? vacation?. I'm sorry I haven't uploaded for a while because I was busy with my wedding preparation (please pray for me). Anyway, today's article is about applications that you need to download before your next trip (YEEES I LOVE TRAVELING) so let's get started.

1- Google Maps: There’s nothing like Google Maps when it comes to take free route-planning software; using the program, almost anyone with a mobile or a computer can find a way to explore new places with little effort. 

2- Foursqaure: Food and restaurant finder applications are a must, especially when travelling alone. Foursquare is the best because it shows you the nearby restaurants with ratings and customers comments.

3- Google Translate: It is best tool to get translation of any language. It is an easy and simple tool to use if you get stuck with someone whom you don't even know which language s/he is speaking.

4- El Salem: As a muslim person praying time and Qiblah are very needed in foreign countries, thankfully I found this app and I hope it will help you too.

5- Visit a City: This application is included in the list as much for its cool factor as for its utility. Select any city and you will find a list (visit in 1 to 7 days- Things to do- Sights- Map- My plans- Tips).
