Like a candle
your love shines in my heart...
So you thought Winters were over & it was about to bloom everywhere - think again. If you're someone like me who's suffering-from-the-cold-weather that has hit London recently you might want to consider phychological ways to keep warm too, lol!
I am a big fan of candles, scented or not. I personally see candles as a way to warm up the ambiance of your room & living. They transmit a soothing, calm effect in your surroundings. Most of all, candles are SO ROMANTIC! Candles & scents create the most romantic atmosphere.
This post is not actually an official review of Glade candles but maybe in a way it is. This pretty little jar of wax & wick was a gift from a very very special person. Glade's Relaxing Zen comes in a really pretty jar of greenish-yellow with a pattern around it. Over this pattern it has a swirly gold pattern going all around it. I placed it on the wall shelf in my room where I usually keep all my jewelry & make up stuff I use frequently.
Once lit the delicate fragrance is released which is mild & not at all overpowering. The little flame melted the wax and set a soft, warm romantic setting. I kept watching it while I was laying in bed with lights down low & couldn't help praising how this tiny glow was helping me unwind. There is something about the dim flickering light of candles which is just plain awesome. Ever wondered why candle light dinners are so romantic? :)

Today's post is a review of an amazing mascara that I recently tried & absolutely love it. I repurchased it & decided to share a review of it.
Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal "Cat Eyes" Mascara
For lashes that look:
Get Gorgeous Volume.
First off - I love the packaging. It's a pretty bright yellow that really stands out on the counters. It has little leopard spots on the top making it look cute & cat-like. I opted for the washable mascara in Glam Black. Once I opened the packaging I loved loved loved the curvy wand - like a claw. It's not just curvy it's also thin which makes it easier for more controlled application as compared to thicker ones. The wand is spiky all over.
Why You'll Love It
Colossal lashes go fully feline in one stroke.
Lush collagen formula & claw brush fill out lashes upto 8 x the volume with fablous cat-like corners instantly.
I always get washable mascaras. I never liked waterproof mascaras, maybe because this one time I tried a waterproof mascara and it just wouldn't come off! Even with a makeup remover. And ended up ruining my eyelashes. Therefore I just like something with comes off easily. I opted for the washable one and applied the mascara with the so-convenient claw brush working against the lashes and sweeping from roots to tip. The application is so smooth! The curvy brush makes it so easy to apply mascara from inner corners of the eyes to outer. Like I mentioned earlier, you'll notice that the wand is thin as compared to other mascaras. This makes application control so easy for you. It helps you get some mascara on the inner lashes of the eyes too.
Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal "Cat Eyes" Mascara is going to add tons of volume to your lashes especially if you have thin & small lashes like myself. It fits in really nicely underneath my eyelashes and makes it so easy to sweep it up from the base of my eyelashes to the tips. It also helps you work with your lashes really swiftly. The best part about this mascara is that it add that "Cat Eyes" effect to your lashes by curling your outer most lashes in a certain way. If you repeatedly sweep your lashes outwards you'll have that sexy cat eyes effect to your eyes. My lashes felt nice & soft.
For me this is one of the best mascaras. It's a fun mascara with a really affordable price tag. This was the second time I purchased it and I couldn't help sharing a review. If you come across this definitely give it a try.
Have you tried this mascara yet?
