    The SO Project

    When I was younger, I had no clue about make up, I didn’t think I really needed it  . . . and I was a little lazy. But one day, while working, one of the floor managers came up to me and told me that I had been . . . Mystery Shopped! Don’t worry; it was me helping this customer, so the mystery shop itself was amazing. It was just the description of me; this customer said I looked  . . . 31+! At the moment, I have a year before I even reach 30. At the time, I was in my early 20’s. So having this random person…

    My Battle With Acne

    The biggest skin problem I have is acne. It started when I was in my teens and didn’t really clear up till I was in my 20’s. It wasn’t severe acne, it was fairly mild compared the severe acne that some people have, but it lasted for years. I tried all the products that were aims at teens with spots, I even used a product that was meant to be worn only at night, during the daytime. The reason that this wasn’t a good idea was because this product was a gel that once it dried, would look like a face mask that would need to be peeled off, and…

    Beyonce Does The Pixie Do . . . Do You Like ?

    You have to admire a women that isn’t afraid of change, trying new styles and trends. Not many can really pull it off; thank god that Beyoncé can! And yes Beyoncé is a little late to the Pixie on-going-hair-trend. A trend that Ellen DeGeneres has been rocking for many years, I don’t care what the Mirror.co.uk says, it was not started by Miley Cyrus! But I am a little shocked by the major media coverage of it. It is just a haircut, and if Beyoncé does get bored with the pixie cut . . . she can, wait for it   . . . get a weave, shocking I know. It’s…

    Is This The Answer To All Your Skin Problems?

    C-Infusion The Ultimate Vitamin C from Dermaquest Skin Therapy I heard somewhere that Vitamin C and E are meant to be very good for the skin. That might have been why I honestly thought that after trying one of those expensive products for my skin. I would be singing the praises and would be subjecting my credit card to ridiculous amount of spending abuse, the likes of which, it has never experienced. But it would have been sacrifices that I would totally make and never look back. At work, I and other members of the team I work with, always have different samples to give customers. We usually give without…

    While At Work – Beauty Post

    So the other day at work, I got a little treat. For all my hard work (mostly based on a loyal customer who likes me) I had a good week of sale, the Beauty manager had asked for the person that had the best sale, to come downstairs for a free beauty treatment. I don’t know what would have happened if it had been one of the men on my department had done so well. To be honest, my first thought was ‘ . . . But I have make-up on, and I didn’t bring anything to re-apply all my hard work’. But after some deep thoughts, that took about…

    Welcome to London Victoria Secrets . . . Finally.

    I remember visiting America, going to Miami Florida for my 18th birthday, it was 2 weeks of pure shopping, one of the best holidays I have ever had.  One of the highlights was discovering Victoria Secrets, not really for the lingerie; to be honest I didn’t buy any. I was too in love with the lotions, shower gels and body sprays. My mother and I spent over an hour just trying all the different scents, trying to figure out which ones we liked from the ones we loved. My personal favourite is Amber Romance, it smells simply delicious and I ended up buying everything in the range. When we came…
