[Books] Fifty Shades Darker by E.L James

April 22-25, 2013


Daunted by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven, and demanding Fifty Shades. While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront her anger and envy of the women who came before her and make the most important decision of her life. Erotic, sparkling and suspenseful, Fifty Shades Darker is the irresistibly addictive second part of the Fifty Shades trilogy.


Fifty Shades Darker, the second edition to the Fifty Shades series by E.L James. Christian scared Ana off with his intense BDSM are they both dealing with it? 

This book was more of my scene than the first book. The first book was just too intense, eye widening, and cringe worthy for me. 

In this book we see more of the Fifty Shades of Christian and how he transforms from on mood to another, and how Ana reacts to them. Oh and lets not forget his impulsive spending. 

There is a lot more fluff in this book than the first book for sure, it's a lot more heart warming for me. There are new characters that come in, and of course Fifty being Fifty, wants to protect what's his and not share. 

I enjoyed this a lot more than the first book, it was annoying, frustrating and heart warming, and I'm looking forward to reading the last book soon. 

I totally recommend this to every woman out there! Y'all should totally pick this up!

[Beauty] H&M Nude Palette Review

Hey everyone!!

I've been wanting to add "Beauty" into my blog for quite a while now and what better way to do so than post about my recently bought beauty product! 

H&M's Nudes Eyeshadow!

I actually gasped when I saw that the Bahrain branch of H&M were selling their own brand of makeup and spent a while in the makeup section picking out which one I should buy. 

So I got the one with the champagne pigment in the middle. There is one with a blush pink sparkly color. 
I wanted a proper nude palette for my everyday use so I got it. 

It was BD 2.500 ($6.63) 
Size: 12cmx5cm

This palette has four colors to it. 
A slightly sparkly pale bright nude - Coral matte nude - Sparkly champagne - Matte dark nude - Slightly sparkly dark light brown

I've used it once so far, and I can say that it takes a few more coatings for the coral matte and pale nude to actually show. I didn't use primer so by a couple of hours, the eye shadow kind of just disappeared. It looked like I didn't put anything on. 

The last three shadows were more pigmented than the first two, which is great!

The palette is portable depending on how big your makeup bag is and if you'll be bringing a brush with you since this does not come with its own brush.

I wouldn't recommend buying this for those who want really pigmented shadows. But for those who are scared to use makeup and want to try it out, but not make a really big impression, go for it. Try it out. There is no harm in trying.

I'm looking forward to using this palette more in the future, since it has all the essential nude colors that one needs for an everyday makeup look.
