HFW: Day 4/ Bohemian OOTD/ Sponsored Review

Salam alaikum!

Day 4 - May 31 - Destinations: If you could go anywhere for fun, where would you go & what would you wear?

Currently, I have no idea where I'd want to go except maybe...NYC. Hehe! So, I figured I'd go hippie bohemian for this look. I don't know how my destination is linked to my look (clearly I'm having a bit of writer's block right now not knowing what to write and all hur hur)

Polkadot shawl in oatmeal from shopsghijabgirl, yellow knit sweater from Cotton On that I just got recently for only $15! Super cheap and am really loving it, so comfy! Can't remember where I got the pleated polkadot dress though I think it cost me less than $15 too. My tribal-ish bag was bought in Cappadoccia, Turkey, brown pants from zara & my favourite and one and only denim Chucks.

So..recently, I've been getting a lot of emails asking me what's the shade of the red lipstick I'm always wearing. I used to love Mac Russian Red until I got Chanel's Rouge Allure Velvet in the shade of La Fascinante. Its so lovely, creamy and matte. I love that its a deeper red compared to Mac's RR. 

Anyways, the trick to smooth application for your lipstick, especially these red colored ones is to apply lip balm first. My lips are a bit dry so I never skip this step. Having smooth lips from the lip balm helps the lipstick to glide on easier and also, last longer.

I was recently sent this product from Mentholatum. I'm sure you've heard of them right? I've always been a fan of their lipbalms and I'm pretty positive my first lipbalm was from Mentholatum as well haha!

They've launched a new Organic lipbalm range which is free from chemicals, preservatives or colorants. The ingredients are a nourishing blend of natural oils such as African Organic Shea Butter which is a very popular ingredient known to heal dry lips. Spanish Organic Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, and lastly, Organic Coconut Oil. 

They're available in 2 amazing flavour/scents: Raspberry & Strawberry and Lavender & Orange. The first one is my favourite hehe! You can find it at Watsons, Guardian, Supermarkets and Departmental stores near you for only $7.90.
