Today I want to show guys a few skincare products and gift set that I got at Sephora other day:
Let me start from this YSL gift set that came in this cute pouch:

1. YSL Mascara Volume Effect Faux Cils (travel size)

2. YSL lipgloss  (travel size)

3. Touch Eclat Blur Primer: _ I don't think I need to say anything about this primer other than almost everyone who has used it, loved it. I had this primer long time ago, but I was so busy using my other primers, particularly Guerlain D'Or primer that I never got to use it and after it expired, I ended up throwing away. This time, I'm going to use it.



I recently discovered brand Murad at Sephora and decided to give it a try. I bought a skincare gift set that includes Murad Hydration AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, Nutrient-Charged Water Gel and Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30+++.  I also bought a face exfoliator Pore Rescue _Skin Smoothing Polish. Since I haven't tried anything from this skincare gift set yet, I will leave it for future post.



 but I already applied this exfoliator to my skin couple of times and I have to recognize it isn't for my dry, sensitive skin. 
As the label says, this "intensive exfoliating scrub deeply cleans clogged pores and reduces excess oil without stripping skin of natural moisture for a smoother, glowing complexion."




Let's start from the fact that it doesn't have enough grain for my preference, I feel like it doesn't clean deeply. Even though it's not grain-y,  it is harsher for my skin than my other exfoliators. Love the packaging and gentle scent of this exfoliator but I will probably return it or will give it to someone else who doesn't have dry sensitive skin.

Have you used any of these products? Let me know in the comments below.

There are beauty products that are must-haves for most of the people and a good, trusted concealer is one of them, especially if you've got dark circles under your eyes. Today I want to show you some of my favorite concealers I've used for years.


YSL All Hours Concealer:

This is a full coverage concealer that can instantly blur and erase imperfections and discoloration on face. As for formula, this is more liquid side then other concealers I'm talking about today, and it also feels more moisturizing then other ones.

YSL All Hours Concealer

Make sure you apply your setting / finishing powder after this concealer so that it will not crease or fade throughout the day.
This YSL ultra-smooth, matt finish concealer comes in 16 different shades so you will definitely be able to find perfect match for your skin tone.
ALL Hours concealer is free from Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates.



Guerlain Multi-Perfecting concealer:

With this Guerlain Multi-Perfecting hydrating concealer you can hide dark circles and imperfections and create a natural-looking finish. It's a creamy concealer that comes in a little tube with a fine tip so you have great control over how much you squeeze out, that way,   you don't waste too much product and also, it's hygienic.

This creamy concealer comes in 6 shades from Light Warm to Very Deep Cool. Among the three concealers I'm talking about today, this has the most coverage and it's the best to cover any imperfections on face, but keep in mind that you will still need to apply a color corrector under your eyes prior to tis concealer, if you've got very dark circles.

Guerlain Multi-Perfecting concealer has delicate floral scent of rose, raspberry, jasmine and white musk but as I said, it's very delicate scent , nothing annoying, and even though it's scented, it doesn't irritate my skin or eyes.
Guerlain Multi-Perfecting concealer is free from Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates.



Lancome Maquicomplet _ Complete Coverage concealer:

This creamy, liquid concealer minimizes the look of flaws, blemishes and dark circles wtih full, natural looking coverage. As Lancome describes, this concealer is enriched with light-diverting agents and a hydrating botanical complex that supports antioxidant protection. It minimizes the appearance of under-eye circles while reducing environmental damage off your look with natural-looking coverage.
Even though Maquicomplet concealer is creamy and lightweight, it gives me full coverage and it never settles into fine lines. This concealer comes in 14 different shade so you can find the one that perfectly matches your skin tone.


Have you used any of these concealers yet? How you liked it? Let me know in the comments below.

Today I want to show you guys what Crayola Experience in Pennsylvania looks like and what to expect if you visit it with your kids.
This 65,000 square feet of colorful attraction is a perfect place for kids age 2- 10. (let's jut not count 12-13 years old camp boys in summer, jumping all over in colorful indoor playground, not letting young kids to go through different fun obstacles.)



Crayola Experience has so many different activities that it can easily keep your kids engaged for up to 5 hours.
One of my 8-years-old daughter's favorite attractions was "Wrap It Up" __ where you can use a coin that came with your ticket to personalize and print an authentic Crayola crayon label and wrap it around to create your own unique Crayola crayon. We chose bright pink and purple.



"Silly Selfies" __ in this interactive room you can create silly selfies on one of the many iPads and project them on the wall to become part of a bigger scene. Finding your "Silly Selfie" among other kids selfies on the wall is the funniest part for kids. You can walk up and touch your selfie to animate it.




My daughter's another favorite was "Melt & Mold." Here, you could load your favorite crayon color into the machine and watch your crayon melting different shape. We chose ring shape.



There was also Color Playground in Crayola Experience for active kids that my daughter loved. After dodging and squeezing through obstacles, kids can relax and sit down at Colossal Caddy that holds thousands of Crayola crayons. Kids and their acompagning parents can color and take their colored papers at home.


Overall, it was worth going to Crayola Experience but I don't think we will visit again because of my daughter's age. It's must be more fun for younger kids.

 Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish loose powder and Givenchy Prisme Visage Perfecting Face Powder are my favorite makeup products from this brand. I'm not a person who loves loose powders because of their messiness and I was not sure it was a good decision to buy this Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish loose powder but I'm so glad I did. 


Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish loose powder
Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish loose powder



What is Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish
 loose powder and what it does:

This is a universal, transparent loose finishing powder for the face that imparts radiant complexion throughout the day.
This transparent, featherlike, superfine loose finishing powder applies completely sheer, and gives skin an even, matte, and naturally radiant complexion. It feels absolutely luxurious from the moment you open its gorgeous black enamel case to the minutes you apply it with its microfiber powder puff on your skin.
Givenchy  Poudre Premiere Mat & Translucent-finish loose powder is really superfine that has a very pleasant smell. I usually apply it over my liquid foundation and it gives my skin natural, airbrushed finish. The only downside is that it's not the best option for traveling. 

This takes me to my another favorite Givenchy powder that is great for travelling since it's a pressed powder and as a bonus, you can  also color correct and highlight your skin.


What is Givenchy Prisme Visage Perfecting Face Powder 
and what it does:


This is a mattifying, ultra-fine, and smooth pressed powder that's formulated with silk proteins in a harmony of four complimentary shades to perfect the complexion.

Givenchy Prisme Visage Perfecting Face Powder
Givenchy Prisme Visage Perfecting Face Powder


Givenchy Prisme Visage Perfecting Face Powder comes in different shades for different skin tones that is great. Its pigments are blended with mica powder for added luminosity, and a blurring ingredient smooths the skin and reduces the look of blemishes. It also includes a beleved brush for a flawless application. I'm personally not a big fan of this brush, but the powder itself is great.
I bought it shade Satin Ivoire which suppose to create a luminous effect on light skin tones but you can get in a few shades, including Mousseline Pastel for color correction. You can use each shade of four-shade pressed powder separately or together.


To sum up my thoughts:

Fall is the perfect time to try new, warmer-tone perfumes after light scents that most of the time accompanies Summer days. If you are in the middle of searching your new signature perfume for this Fall I have a few suggestions for you (but this is not a sponsored post, it doesn't contain any affiliate links either.) 
It would be hard to choose just one favorite because I love all of them, it just depends on my mood and outfit of the day, which one of these perfumes I wear each day.

Burberry "My Burberry"

Inspired by the trench coat of the Burberry brand, "My Burberry" captures the fragrance of a London garden after the rain. Its contemporary floral scent features a delicate heart of rose woven with an unexpected touch of geranium leaf.


 Top notes: __  sweet pea, bergamot
                                        Middle notes: _ geranium, golden quince, freesia

                                        Base notes: __  patchouli, damask, centifolia roses

 It's a fresh, soft floral, a bit powdery and someway unisex scent of "My Burberry" that makes this fragrance so special to me. Even though it lasts only up to 6-7 hours, "My Burberry" has become one of my very favorite fragrances. 

The flacon is stunning __ it's made of glass with a stopper inspired by the bottom of a Burberry trench coat and how cute this ribbon is, that is made of the same fabric as the Burberry trench.


Burberry "My Burberry Black"

If you liked how the previous perfume sounded but didnt like its lasting power, then this "My Burberry Black" is for you because it lasts longer than original "My Burberry" and it smels as amazing as the previous one. This is a warm, floral and intimate fragrance that can be worn in chilly days and even better _ for your next night out because it is sexy but not overwelming.



As Burberry describes, "My Burberry Black" fuses the scent of sun-drenched Jasmine flower and Peach nectar with a sensual touch of Rose. The iconic Rose note at the heart of My Burberry fragrances is given a sweet and inviting candied twist while rich Amber Patchouli rounds out the scent for a deep and captivating finish.

Notes:

Peach Nectar, Sun-Drenched Jasmine
Candied Rose and Amber Patchouli

I like that My Burberry Black has a spicy scent but soft spicy, nothing annoying in it, with deep Amber Patchouli tones that can for sure make you stand out wherever you go. 
Some people might call this fragrance masculin but I would call it bold, it's a bold scent but not overwhelming. 
The bottle is almost same as My Burberry, just in a darker tone with the same cute ribon on the cap. Lasting power is amazing, you don't even need to re-apply it during a day or night.   



Bottega Veneta "Bottega Veneta"

This perfume has very sensual and intriguing scent __ it's little bit floral, with more spicy and dry, woody notes. You can feel leathery undertones throughout a day as well.





"Bottega Veneta" is not a typical feminine perfume __ it's a unique mix of spicy, leather and floral notes that can change your mood right after you apply it and yes, wearing this parfume, you can definitely make a statement. 


Dior "Miss Dior"


Warm, Sweet, Floral __ that's how I would describe this Dior "Miss Dior" Eau de Parfum in three words. If you love sweet scents you may enjoy wearing this perfume. 

Key Notes: 

Rosewood, Bergamot and Grasse Rose.



In the heart of the fragrance, the fresh, sensual beauty of the Grasse rose combines with the boldness of Damascus rose. They are woven with Calabrian bergamot, vivid rosewood from French Guiana, and pink pepper from Reunion Island. You can smell sweet notes with the pink pepper and orange at beginning but it settles into powdery roses and blossoms.


Lancome "Hypnose"

"Hypnose" is a sweet, elegant and feminine, kind of cozy fragrance with its low note of passion flower and violet, mid notes of vanilla and jasmine and top notes of amber and woods. It's not overwelming but definitely outstanding. 
The bottle of this fragrance is so luxurious, evocative of a woman's silhouette. There is something about this fragrance that makes you feel very special.

Two weeks ago, we decided to take a road trip to Canada. Since we are only few hours away from the Canadian border, we decided to use this opportunity and visited Montreal and Quebec City.

Quebec City,Chateau Frontenac , travel to Canada
Chateau Frontenac __ holds a Guinness World Record of "the most photographed hotel in the world"


Once we got to Montreal, we stopped by downtown Montreal to see Barbi Expo first. It's a free exhibit in one of the upscale malls in Montreal that is the largest permanent exhibit of Barbie dolls in the world.

It was absolutely amazing experience __ there were over thousand barbies __ from entertainment industry barbies to movie characters and personalities to fashionista barbies,  dressed by leading fashion houses, including Burberry, Prada, Balenciaga and also, barbies dressed in different national costumes from all over the world. (If you follow me on Instagram you should have seen it in my InstaStories.)
After that, we went to The Westin Montreal __ luxurious hote, located in Old Montreal.

Unfortunately, the hotel didn't impress us, to say the least. When we got to our room, you could see stains all over the floor and the bed sheets were covering the mattrass only half way__ something that you never expect from the hotel that charges you more than $300 a night (?!). In the end, they offered us a new room, cleaner than first room, but overall, it was not the hotel that would ever make us want to visit Westin hotels  again, unless it's Westin Rome in Rome, Italy, that we stayed in, two years ago, and it was so spectacular, we just didn't want to leave.

Anyways, moving to a different, cleaner room took some extra time so by the time we were ready to explore Montreal, it was already late evening. We strolled down the street towards Place D'Armes and Notre-Dame Basilica, in Old Montreal, and at that point, all we wanted was to find a place where we could have dinner.
Near Notre-Dame Basilica, we found a cute Italian restaurant where we had nice dinner and after getting some coffee, (and dessert for my daughter,) we were ready to go back to hotel and rest.

Next morning, after a quick breakfast at the hotel, we drove to Quebec City and spent all day there.

It was very charming and beautiful. Even though it rained couple of times while were there, it didn't ruin our mood, eating some gelato in cafe and getting some souvenirs must have helped us not to worry about rain, haha.

We visited  a few must-see places that I am going to write about in a different post, but for now, let me tell you that Quebec City was so amazing, we decided to go back next summer and stay longer.
Late night, we drove back to Montreal and went straight to the hotel.
Next morning, after quick breakfast, we drove around the city, took some pictures, ate lunch and left Montreal.

After 4-hour of driving, on the way we stopped by cute small town in New York state and found the small charming place to have early dinner.

Road trip to Montreal and Quebec City


Two weeks ago, we decided to take a road trip to Canada. Since we are only few hours away from the Canadian border, we decided to use this opportunity and visited Montreal and Quebec City.

First thing that will come to your mind when you think about Tiffany&Co. is classic, beautiful, sophisticated  jewelry but did you know that Tiffani&Co. also has some amazing fragrances? __ I didn't , honestly.. until I didn't receive this gift set from my husband. 
I remember, first few minutes of disappoint because I usually expect perfumes from my all-time favorite brands like Burberry, Dior, Chanel and etc, but after I sprayed it on my wrist I loved the scent.



Top note: Vert de Mandarine
Middle note: Blue Iris
Base note: Patchouli, Musk


Fresh, classic and sophisticated __ that's how I would describe this Tiffany&Co. Eau de Parfum in three words. This is a radiant and modern scent that opens with vibrant top notes of vert de mandarine. At its heart, the signature ingredient _ iris flower _ adds femininity. It dries down on the skin with warm nuances of patchouli and gentle musky notes, but I barely smell these notes on my skin.
This sparkling floral musk fragrance is designed around the noble iris, a flower _ associated with Tiffany as a recurring motif in its jewelry designs.
As for longetivity, it lasts almost all day on me so I'm I have nothing to complain about.




This fragrance can be worn any season of the year, including summer, since its not overwhelming scent. It's slightly floral with slight sweetness and freshness.
This perfume git set includes a full size (2.5 FL Oz) and travel size perfumes and comes in the signature Tiffany&Co. Blue Box. Just like the scent itself, the bottle is also simple and classic. The crystal bottle recalls the iconic Tiffany Yellow Diamond cut and inside the bottle you can see a delicate juice with the slightest tint of blue. 

Have you had Tiffany&Co. perfumes yet? How you liked them? Let me know in the comments below.

If you are looking for a new moisturizer to add to your daily skincare routine, here are few options you can consider. I have used quite many moistturizers from Estee Lauder over the years and here are the ones that I liked the most:

Estee Lauder "Verite Moisture Relief Creme"

Let me start from the best of the best _ "Verite Moisture Relief Creme". This alcohol-free and fragrance-free moisturizer is for truly sensitive skin. It contains special anti-irritants that help reduce the appearance of redness _ common to sensitive skin. The formula is free of common allergens and created without harsh emulsifiers.




 Estee Lauder "Verite Moisture Relief Creme" is the most soothing, gentle moisturizer I have ever used. It was the only cream that didn't irritate my sensitive skin that was covered with red rash from an allergic reaction to one of my shampoos, back then. Of course, I could name many other moisturizers that could moisture my skin longer than "Verite Moisture Relief Creme" but when my skin was in its worst condition this was the only product that helped my skin to be moisturized without irritating already irritated skin. 
The lightweight formula feels luxurious when you apply on your skin and absorbs quickly while leaving the skin smooth and hydrated. So, if you have very sentitve skin or your skin is extremly irritated for whatever reason, you should feel safe to use this moisturizer.


Estee Lauder "Daywear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme"

If you looking for a moisturizer with SPF support, you can check out Estee Lauder "Daywear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme" . This is a high-performance moisturizer for normal to combination skin. This cream not only moisturizes the skin for up to 24 hours but also reduces the first visible signs of aging, like dulness and fine lines. It has SPF15 to help you stay safe agains sun rays. The only thing you should keep in mind is that it is slightly scented, but nothing that can bother too much.




Estee Lauder "Hydrationist" Maximum Moisture Creme

Another great product from  Estee Lauder __ "Hydrationist" Maximum Moisture Creme. This is a lightweight moisturizer that absorbs quickly and leaves the skin feel amazing. It is slightly scented but to the point that never borthered me when I used use this cream. "Hydrationist" is perfect under makeup as well. The only thing is that it doesn't contain SPF so you will need to apply sunscreen after this moisturizer.




Edited: After I published this post I found out that unfortunately, "Hydrationist" Maximum Moisture Creme has discontinued. 

Thanks for reading lovelies.
