Alphabetical 2016

A✷ Advent calendars. I feel like a kid every time I open one little box and discover a precious little gift.

B✷ Breathe. It is so important to learn to control breathing and it clears my mind when I am extra stressed! So take a step back and take a deep breath!

Merry Christmas

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!! I cannot believe that this day is here, how quickly this month passed and this year also? I know everyone is having a break at the moment and not posting anything, and taking a break from social media etc, but I wanted to write a short post wishing everyone a Happy Christmas and a few quotes I love and try to remember on this special day.

I ♥ dresses & bags - Collaboration with StyleWe

I always had a love for dresses and girly items for as long as I remember myself. When I was a kid, I used to wear dresses all the time and I wouldn't take them off. Even when we played outside  or in the park, you would consider I would wear pants or leggings or shorts to be able to play and run easily, but no no no, this girl was wearing dresses and jewellery and holding stylish children's bags 24/7!

Bedside beauty items

Having a few beauty products near my bed makes it easier to reach and use them at night. This is a habit I follow a few months now, I usually used to neglect putting body cream or a hand cream before going to sleep, but now, tired or not, I cannot help it and I always follow this night routine before I hit the sheets.

Ebay wishlist - affordable products I want to buy for winter

We are experiencing a heavy winter here and honestly, I am not used to it nor I like it. I don't like to be inside all the time and not be able to do anything. I love the summery hot weather and be outside and enjoy nature (I was born in July so I am a 'summer' person - I don't know if that's a word but I am). And I cannot handle cold. I wear too many layers (sometimes 4 or 5 to keep my body warm) and I look like a snowman.

My Christmas Decorations

Hello girls! I am so excited for this post since today I am going to share with you my Christmas decorations! Yayy! Everything is ready and I am proud to say that in only took me 2 days to finish them all (and 2 days after to clean all the mess!) and everything turned out really nice!

The perfect red lipstick for Christmas day

Is there a girl out there that doesn't love a red lipstick for Christmas day? Dark or light red, matte or glossy, bright, bold, sheer red, it can be anything, as long as it is red.

I remember many years ago, I did like to wear red lipstick but I was embarrassed to do it. I thought it looked awkward on me but now, there is no day in December that I go without red lipstick. Day, night, afternoon, morning, I will be rocking red lips!

Favourite blogs I read daily

I have been blogging for a year now and I celebrated my blog's birthday a month ago. When I started blogging in November 2015, I didn't know how amazing this community is and how supportive all other bloggers are. When I receive a lovely comment on a post or positive feedback, it means everything. It's like having a friend telling you he is there for you and will support you no matter what.

12 things to do in December

1✮ Get cozy, bring the blankets, make pop corn and watch Christmas movies.  
There is a great selection of Christmas movies to watch, a few favourites are:

Rosegal Wishlist for Winter

The Christmas Tag

I know it's a little early for a Christmas Tag and all that jazz (then again, is it really early, I mean Christmas is less than a month) but I am so excited that so this post is just perfect for today, the first day of December!

I thought it will be fun to do a Christmas Tag post, I love these posts but I haven't done one for Christmas so here it is. Feel free to tag yourself and do one as well!

Preparing for my wedding - Collaboration with Modabridal

I don't think I mentioned this before on my blog or social media, but I am getting married in 2018! Yayyy!!! We booked our venue at the beginning of summer and I know it is early to start planning anything, I mean, I have two years ahead to plan, but I have been browsing every single bridal shop I come across and I cannot wait to choose my dress!!! A girl's dream is to have a fairy tale wedding and wear the most beautiful dress, and I am no exception! I want my dress to be elegant, romantic and simple. 

Milani Colour Statement Lipsticks - Plumrose & Sangria

Hello girls! Today I have another lipstick post, omg, how many new lipsticks did I purchase in the last month? Fall is always a season I get excited to renew my lipstick collection and purchase more dark lipsticks, cause I love wearing dark shades.

Christmas DIY - Make a bauble wreath

Hello ladies!!! I hope you are having a lovely Sunday!! Today I have another Christmas diy and today we are making a beautiful bauble wreath.  This tutorial is so easy, anyone can do it. I watched a couple of youtube videos before making my own, just to make sure I follow the procedure and don't forget any steps.

Humphrey's Skin Softening Facial Toner (Lilac Witch Hazel - Alcohol Free)

Hello girls! How are we today? I am reviewing another product I got from i-herb, the Humphrey's Skin Softening Facial Toner. I love using toners after washing my face; I believe they make a huge difference in the texture of my skin and pick up any dirt or makeup left after cleansing.

Red, plum and pink for lips and nails

With the temperature changing and winter coming closer, I ought to admit that I have been loving more my dark shades for lips and nails. Oh yes, I  love to wear dark red, pink and plum and today I have a few recommendations and ideas of what I have been wearing lately.

I wish Asos

As we get closer to festive season and Christmas, our wishlists are getting bigger and bigger. I have a huge list of things I want to buy and it is soooooo big, Santa would be scared if he had a look at it. I always have a notebook near me so every time I read my favorite blogs, I take notes on some product I want to try.

Christmas door decoration - DIY

Christmas is just around the corner and I could not be more excited! I love Christmas, I love preparing and decorating and doing some diy's, so today I have an easy diy you can do with your kids or yourself if you want to decorate your door. 

Fall skincare favorites

Each season I tend to change my beauty routine and I love to use new products I haven't tried before. I rarely re-purchase products I finish except if they were so amazing and made a huge difference in my skin. But as I said, I love to try new products and test them.

5 things that make me happy now

Two months ago, I was going through a difficult period in my life but this made me realize many things about my life and life in general, and what things are important or not. Bad situations happen to all of us and it is really important to find things that make up happy and things to be thankful for. And today, I will discuss five things that make me really really happy!

Product of the month - L'oreal Paris Color Appeal Eyeshadow in Quartz Rose

If you remember the post I did for the ELF Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in French Lace a while back, you must already know that I love shimmery eyeshadows and I usually use only one eyeshadow for everyday makeup. In the morning I don't have much time to do my makeup so it must be something quick and you know a girl has to have some shimmer before leaving the house! 

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipsticks - Tea Rose & Chaos

The NYX Extra Creamy Round lipsticks have been out there for so long and everyone tried and loved them, and I cannot believe it took me so long to order these lovely lipsticks. These are not the first NYX Creamy lipsticks I ordered, after the success I had with NYX Thalia I decided to order two more.

Blog's First Birthday and how I feel

Today is a happy day! We are celebrating Pink Daisy Loves' first birthday! Yes, this blog is one year old and I couldn't be happier about it. This year went so fast! I cannot believe that it is almost the end of 2016 and it's been a year since I started blogging.

I honestly cannot believe how far I came. The very first post on this blog was up on November 6, 2015 and please do not go and read my first posts cause I am so embarrassed about them haha! 

MILANI Rose Powder Blush - Romantic Rose

The Milani blushes have been on my wishlist since last year. And the first time I placed an order on the Milani website, I was meant to order two blushes, the Milani Romantic Rose Blush and the Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore but I totally forgot to order the first one.  And I felt stupid but I just wouldn't afford to place another order that time and pay 10 or 12 euros for shipping for a single product. It was too much.

Milani Lip Intense Liquid Colour - Red Extreme

This fantastic lip product arrived a while ago at my doorstep, and it was love at first sight. And let me tell you one thing, this baby is intense. Extremely intense. And I had a feeling I would like this lip product but I didn't know I would love it. 

NYC City Proof 24hr Waterproof Eyeshadow Pencils

I recently purchased the NYC City Proof 24hr Waterproof Eyeshadow pencils and I purchased two shades, Murry Hill Champagne and Tribeca Taupe. Cream eyeshadows are my thing these days and eyeshadow pencils are so easy to use. I remember last year, I purchased one from L'oreal, and I wore it almost every day in the winter. It was so easy to use and when in a rush, you grab this stick, apply and you are ready to go.

ColourPop Lippie Stix - Tiger & Bossy

When ColourPop announced a while back that they were offering worldwide shipping, I was all over the moon and spent days and nights in front of my pc to see what shades I will be getting and watching countless youtube videos of lip swatches. My ColourPop bag was getting bigger and bigger and when they announced that they were offering free shipping, I knew it was time! 

The Fall Favorites Tag

I was tagged by the lovely Katie from Beauty From Katie to do the fall tag (check her amazing blog here) and I was so excited to do it! I was never into fall/autumn, I live in Cyprus where our summer lasts until the end of October and I am sitting on my porch right now, wearing shorts and flip flops drinking ice tea, but well, it is fall after all so I might get into it!

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick #30

This is the season of new lipstick additions. This is the season where my vanity is going to explode and it is a fact that with all the lipsticks I already own, they would last me a lifetime, yet, I am still buying more. 

Essence - 3 new products

As you must already know by now, Essence is one of my favourite affordable brands. If you don't know Essence or you haven't tried their products, you must try them asap! You may think that Essence is an inexpensive brand and meh, not worth trying but trust me, this brand has some excellent products, like their lip liners and lipsticks. 

Wishlist - a collaboration with Banggood

As the weather changes here (finally) and xmas is only a few weeks away, I thought why not make a wishlist of some products I would love to purchase for fall and winter for me and my man. 

Beauty Treats Essential Face Palette

When I placed my huge Beauty Joint order, I was looking for an inexpensive face palette with multiple shades that I could use as a blush, contouring, highlighting etc, and considering this palette was only $6.99, it was a great bargain.

Creightons Bath & Shower Gel - A heavenly scented product

There is a shop in my home town that sells all kinds of products from the UK. And let me tell you, this shop is godsend. Every time I go and visit my parents, I go and visit this shop as well and I am amazed by these wonderful products they have. 

Lierac Demaquillant Douceur Cleansing Water

As a beauty junkie, I love using and testing products from brands I haven't tried before. And this micellar water from Lierac is a first for me. I have heard of Lierac before but haven't tried any of their products, and since I love micellar waters, I thought it would be nice to try this product and see how it performs on my skin.

W7 Lipsticks - Three favourites

Did you know that lipstick was 'invented' 5000 years ago, probably by the Ancient Sumerian that used to crush gemstones and used them to decorate their face, mostly their lips and eyes? Amazing, isn't it?

Essence gel nail polish - Do you speak love?

This is not the first Essence Nail Gel polish I use, I have plenty of them but I don't remember why I did not write a review on these products before. 

The difference of these gel nail polishes is the fact that their formula is thicker than the usual nail polish, it is actually like a watery gel, as the name states, but it dries beautifully, it is highly pigmented and gives a nice shine on nails. Also, it lasts longer than any other nail polish and for this reason and only, I am very pleased with these.

Dark lipsticks I love

Fall is here and fall means many things. Cosy nights by the fireplace, watching our favourite tv shows, eating pizza while raining outside, lovely vanilla candles and hot chocolate! 

Avene duo for cleansing

Avene is a popular brand with some amazing products that I have been using for years. It's a trustworthy company and I always go back to their products because I know that they work perfectly on my skin and they never let me down.  

I love to try out new products I haven't tried before and I never buy the same cleanser twice, except if a product is sooo good, then I will definitely re-purchase.

Three new lipsticks

I am welcoming fall with some new purchases. We all want to be ready when a season is changing and we are always excited to add new products to our collection. And since my fiance was in a good mood and offered me to buy anything I wanted to ''celebrate'' the start of the new month, I jumped on the opportunity and bought another lipstick. Or three...  Or more!

Korres Wild Rose Brightening Mask

If you are a regular reader here (I hope you are), you should know by now that I love face masks. In fact, I have tried a remarkable amount of face masks until now. I love how they nourish the skin, clean it in the case of clay masks and I love how my skin feels after I use a face mask.

New clothes from Rosegal*

I love fashion and I love clothes, I mean, I was interested in fashion by the time I was 6 years old and had my own opinion on what to wear and how to style my outfits (poor mum!) and I must admit that I have so many (plenty of them still with tags and unworn, oops) and my closet is so full, I need to do something asap!

Sostar Silk & Olive Anti-ageing cream

There are so many great greek brands out there and  have been using plenty of them (Korres, Apivita etc) but Sostar is a new brand for me. I was looking to purchase a good moisturising cream to use regularly but especially on days when I feel my skin drier than usual so I decided to give this brand a try. 

Five nude lipsticks to wear now

I haven't worn a nude lipstick in a long time now. In spring and summer I get so excited to wear my pink shades and I do this until the end of August. But now, it's time to re-discover some nude shades I have been keeping at the back of my dresser and give them some love!

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

Have you ever tried a product that is so good, you want to use it all the time? And I am talking about the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask that I ordered from i-herb a while back and received a couple of weeks ago. 

Mascaras - What I have been using

Hello girls! Today I have a post about the four mascaras I am currently using and testing, and I must admit I found some affordable and really good mascaras.  

I am always on the hunt to find the perfect mascara, but I haven't tried any high-end ones so I cannot give a complete opinion on what is the perfect mascara cause I haven't tried any expensive ones that are said to be really really good. But I have been testing these four and I will give you an honest review on how they performed on me.

Beauty Test Box*

It is still summer here so I am allowed to receive a summer beauty box full of lovely goodies, right? I was contacted by the lovely team of Beauty Test Box in Greece and I couldn't be happier cause I wanted to try this box for ages, but they did not ship to Cyprus.

Fall wishlist

Fall is here and I couldn't be happier about it.  As much as I love summer, this year it was too much. I cannot handle the heat anymore, the weather is giving me a bad mood and imagine spending all day at home where there is an air-condition. So yes, this year, summer was too much for me.

BeAdora Cosmetics*

As a skincare junkie, I am always on the hunt for new products and new brands I haven't tried before. I also get excited when I read posts of my fellow beauty bloggers (my favourite ever is Shireen, who writes the best reviews on new skincare brands, hello Shireen!) that introduce new and amazing products, and to tell you the truth, I always envied and wanted to try myself something new that I haven't tried before, a brand other than L'oreal or Garnier etc.

What I have been using in August

September is here, and I am so glad! I am looking forward to changing my beauty routine (again), start wearing bold lipsticks and my beloved jeans that have been at the back of my closet since May. Today I have a roundup of the products that I have been using in August.
