The Palace of Versailles Part III - Grand Trianon, Petit Trianon and the Queen's Hamlet

Trianon Palaces, Versailles Garden, The Queen's HamletIt's time to share the third part of our day trip to the Palace of Versailles! This is by far my favourite part of our tour. I was impressed by the main palace's grandeur, fell in love with the magnificent gardens but my visit to the Trianon Palaces and the Queen's Hamlet tops them all. If you have more time, don't miss out on these parts of the estate. They also play a huge part of the royal history of France and there are many incredible things waiting for you to discover, they are not just a drop in the bucket of the Palace. :)  My boyfriend visited Versailles before but only had the chance to see the main palace and he (a hard to please type of person) was impressed to see these other parts in the domain of Versailles. We bought a 1 day passport ticket for €25 each person and it gives you an admission to all the places except for some guided tours. It's €15 for a ticket if you only want to see the main palace, but the additional €10 is really worth it. We are absolutely spellbound by the beauty of it all!

Racinne Skin Care Hydra Series Product Reviews

Racinne Skin care review, Korean Skin care

When it comes to skin care, I love trying new things in the market. As they say, variety is the spice of life, is it not?It was a blessing in disguise because my moisturizers (NeoStrata Moisture Infusion Hydrating Cream and Nivea Sensitive Day Care Moisturizer which by the way are amazing on the skin ) were almost finished when I received these products from Racinne. Have you heard of this brand before? I did some research about their skin care product lines and I am really impressed. It's a Korean Skin Care Company that utilizes highly refined skin care technology.  You can check their very own website here.

The simple things I love about Fall/Autumn

Fall is a beautiful season that fills our senses with so many beautiful things. It's a season I always look forward to every year because there's many holidays or events that are celebrated such as Thanksgiving, Halloween and you start to feel the Christmas spirit. Before this beautiful season ends, I want to share the little things I love the most about fall or autumn:

Make-up Edit: Lipsticks for Fall/Autumn

MAC, plumful, captive, rebel, touch of spice, fall lipsticks

I love fall so much despite the cold weather because everything looks so beautiful, the red and orange branches of trees look so lovely! Drinking hot chocolate and tea feels more special. And of course, dark bright lips - berry, mauve and plum colors are on trend. In addition to my new Arbonne lip products, I have more lipsticks in my collection that I love to wear during this season. 

The Palace of Versailles Part II - The Gardens

Versailles, France

On my previous travel post on the blog, I mentioned that we skipped the main palace and visited the gardens to beat the crowd. I was worried about the weather that day because the sky looked dark in the morning. Luckily for us, the sun came out and smiled upon us before noon! If you see the garden, you'll wish nothing but a good weather in order to enjoy it! I love the Palace but the gardens and park of the Palace of Versailles are something much more for me. I love nature and beautiful scenery, that's why when I saw the beautiful yard, I was completely mesmerized! It was just what I imagined, it was perfect! I am a bit sad that we did not see everything, it was a massive place that requires a lot of time to be explored. We wanted to visit the smaller palaces, therefore, there's a time constraint in visiting each part of the estate. There's a 2 Day passport ticket you can buy to fully enjoy your trip to the Palace of Versailles.

New lip products from Arbonne!

Arbonne lipstick lip gloss review
Fall is the season for darker shade lipsticks! It's the time of the year when deep berry, mauve and red lipsticks shades are celebrated. To my delight, someone from a PR company asked me if I would like a product to sample from Arbonne's Makeup Fall collection. And because I am a make-up lover, I said yes and for your information, this is not sponsored post nor they asked me to review these products on my blog. They sent me a lipstick and a lip gloss while I was only expecting just one product. Anyway, without further ado, here are my thoughts about these lip makeups:

Discovering the Palace of Versailles Part I - The Palace

Place d'Armes, Palace of Versailles, 78000 Versailles, France
Palace of Versailles, Paris Trip, Europe trip
Our trip to the Palace of Versailles was one of the highlights of our stay in Paris. I had doubts about visiting because of the negative comments which is mostly about the frustrating crowd I heard or read from others but it turned out to be one of the best part of our entire trip to Europe. The Palace is surely one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. It is well worth a visit as it is fascinating with incredibly wonderful buildings and gardens (I'll talk about the gardens on my next travel post) with spectacular fountains and statues steeped in history. If you're looking for an astounding place filled with art, beauty and wealth, you shall visit the palace. History lovers will surely love a tour! In 1979, UNESCO designated the Ch√Ęteau de Versailles a World Heritage site because of the historical events that are associated with it. A visit to the palace will  surely render you tired but in a good way. :) 

One of the best! Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

The Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place Makeup is a foundation I truly love. I know this is a popular choice but it really deserves the hype. If you want a flawless appearance, this foundation might just be the one you need because it provides a heavy coverage that covers many skin flaws. Oh, that was something I wasn't too keen on while I was reading reviews online, I thought this would feel so heavy on the skin but this foundation is lighter than what I expected. It's comfortable to wear and not cakey. I remember using Revlon's Colourstay foundation in the past and it was a lot heavier. This foundation covers acne scars, pores and even dark circles around the eyes.
