Beautiful Cargo Cosmetics! I WON!

top banner


I kindly won a giveaway on IG by CARGO Cosmetics along side LeSportSac. I’m truly grateful. I’ve never tried Cargo Cosmetics or ever owned anything by LeSportSac so I’m sooo excited to share my experience with you. WOo HOO!


I kindly received the palette “You Had Me at Aloha”  and I’m absolutely in love with this palette.  The colours are so pretty! Look at them all!


Hula – champagne (shimmer)

Waikiki – light peach (matte)

Hapuna – ivory (matte)

Kona – medium brown (shimmer)

Shell – light pink pearl (shimmer)

Shaka – medium pink purple (matte)

Hibiscus – light yellow (matte)

Island – peach (shimmer)

Kai – teal (shimmer)

Tiki – deep brown (matte)

Lei – violet (matte)

Luau – aubergine (shimmer)

Features and Benefits:

Palette includes 12 shades.

Versatile, dual-ended eye shadow brush delivers professional results.

Black eye liner pencil (sharpenable) completes the look.

Paraben free formulas.

I really love this eyeshadow palette. It is so stunning! The pigmentation is really lovely and it blends so nicely. I absolutely love it!


I also received SWIMMABLES Longwear Matte Liquid Lipsticks 


I missed CAPE TOWN in the swatches above because I had it in my purse so that’s why I took a photo on its own but I love all the colours and the formula is very long wearing and waterproof. It will not budge. The formula is light and dries fast. It’s not heavy at all, the downfall is that It is sticky/tacky a little when I press my lips together. Matte lip formulas are very tricky. I was just saying on IG stories the other day that the new Maybelline Super Stay Matte INK formula is also sticky. So unfortunate because I’m in love with these colours but that sticky tacky feeling is still there and it is so annoying to me. Look at how beautiful cape town colour is! Dreamy! I might try adding lip primer and see how it goes. Also I’m going to try with a lip gloss on top and see how that goes as well because I love the colours so much.


I also kindly received the beautiful SWIMMABLES eyeshadow sticks. These are really lovely smooth and creamy. I love these eyeshadow sticks so much because they are super easy to put on, the formula goes on evenly, very pigmented, blends nicely and they are super long lasting.


Last I’m sharing with you my favourite mascara for this summer. It is INCREDIBLE!  The Dare to Flair Mascara is so lovely and I love the curvature of the wand. This wand fits perfect in the eye area and it grabs all the hairs. I’m so happy I won this mascara.  It doesn’t come off and smudge on my eyelids with this summer heat. Even some waterproof mascaras come off on my eyelids and it is so annoying. This mascara and top coat is my favourite summer go-to eyelash product. I absolutely love it!


Here is the makeup look that I created with CARGO Cosmetics.

I used the “You had me at aloha” eyeshadow palette.  In the crease I used “Luau“, on the eyelid I used the colour “shell” and “Shaka“, on the brow bone I used a little of “Waikiki” and under the eye I used the beautiful “Kai“. I also used the black eyeliner that comes with the eyeshadow palette on my waterline. I used the Dare to Flair Mascara and the waterproof mascara top coat.  On my lips I have two colours. I added the Sorento matte liquid lipstick and let it dry and then added the Montalk matte liquid lipstick on top.



What do you think of this makeup look? Would love to know.

Here are the three beautiful bags from LeSportSac. The quality is incredible! The material is light and perfect for summer and yet the material, handles and zippers are so strong. I’m so impressed by the quality of the bags. I love the design as well. Super fun and cute.


Thank you so much to CARGO Cosmetics for the beautiful makeup. Thank you so much to LeSportSac for the beautiful set of bags.  I’m truly grateful that I won. Thanks so much! I love everything!

Weekend Fun & Easter Blessings!

blog post banner

Hello! I hope you had a lovely Easter Weekend! I’m very blessed because I get to celebrate two Easters. The Greek Orthodox Easter is May 1st and It’s a blessing to have two celebrations. I always spend Easter with Family and it’s always so lovely. The kids play and paint eggs and we sit and eat together and have a good time. It’s always really special. I’m very grateful that we create beautiful memories especially for the children.

  My Sister-in-law made the prettiest cupcakes!

The writing on my sister-in-laws wall. 

Beautiful table setting.

I posted my OOTD (outfit of the day)  photo on my instagram account. This is what I wore at the family Easter Dinner.  My friend Humara picked out the dress for me. Thank you so much Humara! It’s from American Eagle Outfitters. I love that store! I would buy everything from that store if I could.  A really pretty floral dress and my glasses are from Reitmans, my cardigan is from Walmart, my boots are from Winners and of course the new love in my life Michael Kors handbag that my hubby bought as an early Birthday gift. I haven’t created an outfit of the day since summer and I was inspired by Humara. She is truly amazing at Style and fashion and I admire that about her. What do you think of this outfit? Would you like to see more style and fashion on my blog?

  So after the wonderful dinner my sister-in-law filled our bellies with lovely desserts!

Also this weekend Humara and I went shopping at the Scarborough Town centre and I can’t wait to bring you our VLOG! We vlogged together and it was so much fun to see the new ZARA store. It is huge! There’s a men’s clothing store, women’s and children’s store! I’m putting the vlog together today. I hope to have it up by tomorrow with another post for you. Would you like to subscribe to my VLOG channel? I would love your support.

Here is the lovely Humara and I at the Kastor & Pollux Instalation at the Scarborough Town Centre.  


The Kastor & Pollux Installation offers a lot of places to take creative photos.The installation is a collaboration with ZARA at the Scarborough town centre to offer the community a chance to win a gift card.  I believe they took the installation down but the contest is still open until April. For more information you can have a look at Scarborough Town Centre website.
