CHANEL Spring-Summer 2022 La Pausa De Chanel Collection: Review And Swatches

Not Sponsored: The beginning of this month, I wrote about the inspiration behind Chanel's Spring-Summer 2022 La Pausa De Chanel Collection. It's rich, earthy and natural tones, really appealed to me. My order just arrived and I couldn't be more pleased. This collection is going fast, so don't hesitate purchasing something if interested.

supersweet(run & buy it) sweet(really good,buy it) bittersweet(ok, issues)not sweet(not good,don't buy this stuff)

Rouge Coco Baume in Fall For Me (924) - Supersweet

Rouge Coco Baume is NEW by Chanel. It's a moisture-rich, tinted lip balm that smooths the appearance of your lips and offers buildable color. Chanel states, that this lip balm "contains a deeply, hydrating oil, made from fruit and olive leaves (restorative and antioxidant properties). The finish transforms from sheer and shiny to opaque and subtly luminous as the formulas benefits are absorbed." I LOVE IT!!! My lips felt so moisturized, while using this product. They looked great as well! My lips looked so smooth! The color payoff is amazing and it most definitely is buildable. I really packed on the color in my look below, but you can also go for a softer, just-kissed look. Rouge Coco Baume, currently comes in 7 shades. I'm also going to try and purchase Natural Charm (914), which seems to be hard to find and has been selling like hotcakes. You will be most pleased with the formula for this balm.

Blush Lumiere in Brun Roussi - Supersweet

Obtaining Brun Roussi from Nordstrom, was a struggle due to its popularity. It sold out. It became available and then my order was cancelled. One popped up again and I lucked up. It is currently available on Chanel's website. I love this shade. It's an illuminating powder blush, but do not worry if you're scared of sparkles (because I hate that as well). This blush just gives you a beautiful sun-kissed look with a hint of healthy-glow. The Limited Edition shades are Brun Roussi and Pechee Rosee (peachy shade). The compact these come in have a working mirror and fan-style brush. I'm thinking about getting the peach blush, but still undecided.

Les 4 Ombres in Mediterraneen (747) - Supersweet

The Les 4 Ombres eye shadow palette in Mediterraneen is all shimmer. I'm really not a shimmer on the eyes (except for accents) kind of girl (it just doesn't look great on me all over). But I didn't want to have FOMO and regret not getting this palette. The shades lay beautifully and are inspired by the warm tones of the olive trees and flowers at La Pausa (Gabrielle Chanel's villa overlooking the Mediterranean). I applied the top right on the inner corners of my eyes. I applied the bottom left to my lids.

Le Vernis in Terra Rossa (917) - Supersweet

I think Terra Rossa was the first product I fell in love with (besides Brun Roussi) in this collection. Isn't this a gorgeous color/shade? Ahhhh! Anyone that loves neutrals, earth-tones, naturals will love this nail lacquer. I want to get another bottle. It's that beautiful. I love the formula. The color is terra cotta goodness. What's so great about this collection, is that the colors will work for you year-round. I haven't purchased anything from Chanel beauty in years. They really produced a hit with this one.

7 Reasons To Consider Changing Your Career

Leaving a job is difficult and stressful. There are instances when fleeing in a fit of wrath isn't the greatest option. However, there are those occasions where changing occupations is a wise, even life-changing decision.

If you think this could be you, and you think you're ready for something new - even if it means leaving contacts and coworkers who became your friends - watch this short film and become inspired.

Consider all of the reasons you're making the correct choice.

There Is Always More To Learn

When you switch careers, you should learn a new profession from the ground up. Is there a steep learning curve at your previous job? Have you observed how the curvature flattened down after you were comfortable? After mastering your current position, you become stuck. By putting yourself in a position where you haven't perfected something, you will extend your knowledge set and learn a lot faster. There is always something fresh to learn, Jon Sears SC is a great inspiration for this. 

Taking On New Challenges Is Exciting

If your present job no longer stimulates you, it's a good sign that you must move on. Try something new and push yourself a little. When you walk to your desk, don't think you're always being on top of things; a little danger will increase your morale, as you'll have to race to stay up or excel.

Your Earning Capacity Will Rise

Your talents could be even more valuable if you worked in a different field or for a different company structure. Take a look around and see what your counterparts are producing in other industries before taking the plunge.

There Will Be No More Unnecessary Stress

Sometimes staying in one career has a negative impact on your health. Your immune system is compromised. Your body is worn out. You're always in a bad mood. You could be tired, or you could be under a lot of stress. It's possible that your supervisor is unforgiving and unpleasant, or that your colleagues are obnoxious. There is no profession worth putting your health on the line for. It's time to restart and reboot.

Feeling More Secure

When it's time, it's sometimes just a question of having to wake up and see the sinking ship. When your firm falls under or merges with another company, the option to leave your existing employer, combine with some other company, or change your profession in a way you don't think is healthy because then you could prove to be your lifeboat.

More Prospects For Growth

Changing occupations allow you to put all of your skills and qualities to good use. Extending your skillset as far as feasible and reaching as high up the career ladder as possible. Climb the stairwell! Make a name for yourself! Get a raise! Live your fantasy!

Renew Your Sense of Purpose

If you manage to change occupations, you will at least feel completely in control. You make decisions based on what is best for you and wherever you want to go in life. Whenever you make these decisions, you acquire confidence.

These are all excellent reasons why it is never too late to switch careers. Do you have any other points you'd want to contribute in the comments section below?

Tackling The Difficult Times In Life

Image Source: Pexels CC0 License

We go through so many thrilling and fantastic experiences in life, such as having a family, getting pregnant, making lifelong friends, and exploring the magnificent planet we live on. Just as it is good and true, there are moments in life when problems occur, we face challenges, and bad things happen generally. When this happens, it's critical that we don't get discouraged and instead endeavour to get through the difficult moments in life as fast and painlessly as possible.

One of the more common experiences we have is an illness, which has become extremely evident that the pandemic can affect anybody and everyone. Many conditions come and go, with some being more serious than others, but they all have an impact on people's health and lives for a short amount of time, sometimes even years, and if they are persistent, they can last a lifetime. In these cases, the best thing you can do is make absolutely sure you get the correct medical guidance and assistance. It's also essential to take better care of yourself in terms of quality of life. By fueling your body with the correct foods, exercising regularly, and drinking plenty of water, you can ensure that your body is in good shape to fight any future ailments and even avoid them.

The loss of a loved one is one of life's most tragic events, as well as sometimes being completely unexpected. We all lose individuals in our lives, usually beginning with grandparents or pet fish. Even though it is difficult, there are ways to assist people in getting through it with the proper support system. When children are confronted with situations like this, it can be quite challenging for them to comprehend what is happening. There are numerous books available. They were able to describe it in a more pleasant manner, one that the children can absorb and use to understand and deal with what has occurred.

When you do lose someone it can be awful, you may be involved in a medical malpractice case. This is where the death could have been avoided if proper treatment had been provided; nonetheless, this is usually the result of healthcare providers' neglect or incompetence. In these situations, you should make sure it's turned back on and chat with a lawyer about how they can assist you during this tough time. In these cases, you should contact a medical malpractice attorney who is experienced in dealing with these types of cases and can give you the best guidance on what to expect and how to proceed.

Now, this does not happen to everyone, but divorce is a typical problem that many individuals face. It's exhausting, demanding, and heartbreaking. You need to make sure you have the necessary support in these situations. Ensure you reach out to family members and friends, explaining that you require extra support and compassion right now, as well as devoting as much time as possible with your children, as things can get complicated when it comes to custody.

Is Your Business Doing Everything It Can To Survive?

Is your business doing everything that it can to survive? There are so many different things that you need to be thinking about when you own a business, and all of it is to help your business thrive. As such, if this isn’t working at the moment, then you are going to need to take a second and evaluate what is going on. In this article, we’re going to be looking at some of these things, so keep reading down below if you would like to find out more.

Image Source: Pexels CC0 License

Products Being Sold

The first thing that you have got to think about are the products that you are selling. Make sure that the products you sell fit in with your business. We mention this because there are some companies who add random items into their lineup that don’t fit with the rest of the business at all. It’s very confusing for customers to try and work it out, and can sometimes even put people off if you are not careful.

Make sure that all of the products being sold in your business have their own page with more info on your site, have their own link and so on so that they can easily be found.

Dedicated Employees

If your business wants to survive then you need dedicated employees to help you get through the tough times. Sometimes, you get employees who are fantastic when things are going well, but when you really need them when things are getting tough, they are nowhere to be seen. Then, you’ve got some employees who are too caught up in their own life and are happy for everyone else to pull their weight which isn’t fair to anyone. But, then, you get the people who are 100% dedicated to helping you see success. These are the people that you want working for you, as they are willing to do whatever it takes to help your business boom.

Using The Right Tech

The final thing that we are going to mention is the technology that you are using. If there is new tech on the market and it would make your business more productive, you need to be investing in it. You can’t expect your employees to provide a stellar service if you are not providing them with the tools that they need to do it. It would be like asking a baker to bake a huge cake with only a teaspoon and a small mixing bowl. It’s probably possible, but it’s inefficient and ridiculous to expect that.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that your business needs to be doing in order to survive. The last thing that you need is for your business to be barely surviving simply because you are not taking the right precautions to avoid this. As the business owner, it falls to you to ensure that things are going as well as they can be, so keep reading down below in order to find out more.

Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Recovery Lip Mask Review

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I get commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.

Not Sponsored: I AM LOVING THIS! I've always been a SUPER fan of Fresh's Sugar Advanced Therapy Treatment Lip Balm (Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Space NK, Harrods), Sugar Advanced Therapy Triple-Action Lip Serum (Neiman Marcus, Space NK, Harrods), Sugar Wonder Drops Lip Primer (Nordstrom) and Sugar Lip Polish Exfoliator (Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Harrods). So I was thrilled to see them come out with a NEW Sugar Advanced Therapy Recovery Lip Mask. This is an overnight lip mask, that promises to "recover & repair the look of extra dry lips overnight while locking in hydration for a smooth, plump appearance." Recover ... Repair ... Hydrate ... Smooth ... Plump .... I'm all for it! This lip mask contains berry wax, shea butter, and hyaluronic acid. So how did it work for me? Really Good! I applied it with the spatula supplied. If you've ever used the lip balm, the lip mask is scented the same. It has a light vanilla scent (at least to my nose). This mask is super creamy and spreads evenly on the lips. Your lips are instantly moisturized. It was comfortable to sleep in. By morning, you'll see some "debris" on your lips. That just proves it exfoliates as well as hydrates your lips. Just wipe it away. My lips looked smooth, hydrated and plump after using this product. I REALLY LIKE IT! Fresh did a great job with this product. Your lips will love it and thank you! Other excellent overnight lip masks are from Jouer, Burt Bees, Amorepacific (the other two + Fresh offer more moisture).

Is 2022 The Year To Rediscover Paper?

Image Source: Pexels CC0 License

Since the start of the 21st century, the world has been going digital in a big way. Paper has been used less and less but it hasn’t quite disappeared. Quite the opposite, it’s actually been developing a “fan following”. If you’re not (yet) part of that following then maybe 2021 should be the year that you (re)discover paper.

The fall and rise of paper

In many cases, paper has been abandoned for good reason. For example, one of the main selling points of online banks is that you can see all your transactions immediately. This is much more convenient than having to wait for paper statements.

Similarly, however, there are parts of life where paper looks highly unlikely to be pushed out by digital communications. For example, you can send digital greetings cards and invitations but paper is by far the preferred option. Part of the reason for this is that paper is permanent in a way digital generally isn’t.

There is, however, a whole gray area where digital and paper coexist. Digital may seem the more practical option. In fact, often it is. At the same time, paper also has its advantages. You might not want to switch to it completely but you might very much benefit from giving it another chance. Here are three areas of your life where paper could be a lot of help to you.

Getting organized

Digital organization tools are great but they do have their limitations. The most obvious limitation is that they often need the internet and/or batteries to work. Lose either of them and all your organization goes up in smoke. That’s already a strong argument for combining digital organization tools with plain old-fashioned paper ones.

Another argument is that paper generally offers a lot more flexibility. In fact, that’s a large part of the attraction of bullet journaling. You can set up your planner exactly how you want it instead of having to stick with templates other people have created.

Protecting your mental health

The act of writing on paper is very different from the act of using a keyboard or touchscreen. It’s both much slower and much more tactile. You also have more freedom to get creative. This doesn’t have to mean artistic, although it can do. It can mean anything from basic doodles to sticking on decorations from washi tape to photos to miscellaneous scraps.

This isn’t necessarily relevant for business. It can, however, be very important to your personal wellbeing and development. In fact, journaling is now widely recognized as having a lot of mental health benefits.

Marketing your business

These days, when people think about marketing a business, especially a small one, their first thought is probably digital marketing. It’s true that digital marketing is often a very cost-effective option, particularly for SMBs. At the same time, paper-based marketing does have its uses too.

One of the biggest advantages of paper is that it eliminates the possibility of your carefully-crafted message ending up unread in a spam folder. You can literally put your message directly into your recipient’s hands. What’s more, if your message catches their attention, they will have your paper communication as a reminder to act on it.

Bobbi Brown Extra Cleansing Balm Review And Demo Video

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I get commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.

Not Sponsored: I've been reviewing a couple of Bobbi Brown's NEW skincare products this week. Yesterday, I reviewed her newly re-formulated Extra Repair Moisture Cream Intense moisturizer. Today I'm reviewing her NEW Extra Cleansing Balm (Nordstrom, Harrods, Macys, Bloomingdale's, Bobbi Brown, Selfridges). I love a good makeup remover. Last year, I reviewed Bobbi Brown's Makeup Melter & Cleanser and I was less than impressed. I mentioned in that post, that I prefer cleansing balms (Clinique's Take The Day Off, Drunk Elephant's Slaai Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm and IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm  are my absolute favorites). You can easily travel with those and they take your makeup off with EASE. Well now Bobbi Brown has a cleansing balm!!! How is it? Let's start with the aesthetics. The cleansing balm is a gorgeous honey yellow and comes in a beautiful heavy glass jar. I love Bobbi Brown's insignia on top of the jar lid. The consistency of this cleansing balm is similar to honey itself. I was a little worried about this at the beginning. I mean who wants anything thick and sticky (like honey) on their face? You scoop the product out and it feels like a really thick honey. After scooping the product out, you are then suppose to warm this cleansing balm in your dry hands before applying it to your face (which is also suppose to be dry). The cleansing balm melts easy, once you warm it up. I applied it to my face and it easily "melted" my foundation, blush and lipstick. It struggled to remove my mascara and eyeliner. I really had to apply extra pressure to remove those two things. Plus, I didn't particularly care for this product around my eyes (the website states to avoid the eye area ... well why is this a cleansing balm if you can't remove eye makeup with it??? that makes no sense to me). It has a light scent, nothing offensive. The website describes it as notes of citrus. The key ingredients in this cleansing balm are olive extract, glycerin and orange oil. While using this cleansing balm, your skin will feel moisturized, but as soon as you pat your skin dry that moisturized feeling goes away. I did a quick demo for you using the product below. I put foundation, lipstick, mascara and eyeliner on my hand. You'll see for yourself how this cleansing balm dissolves each. Maybe this product dissolves only Bobbi Brown makeup? I'm not impressed with either of her makeup removers/cleansers. I will say, I LOVE Bobbi Brown's Vitamin Enriched Face Base, Vitamin Enriched Eye Base, Hydrating Eye Cream, and Hydrating Water Fresh Cream. But this, I'm sending back and I never send anything back.

Growing Your Business 101: Franchise Vs Chain

When it’s time to expand and grow your business, you may consider turning your company into a franchise. If you go down this route, it’s highly common to refer to your franchises as chains. However, a franchise and a chain are two different things entirely. Both are methods of expanding a business, but how do they differ - and which one is the best choice for you?

Image Source: Pexels CC0 License


Franchising is the act of expanding your business by getting other parties to open up franchises in different locations. You are the sole owner of your business and the business idea, but you sell the rights to the brand and business model to other individuals. From here, they can choose to open up a franchise of your business in a new location and run it themselves. They will use their own money to invest in the franchise, and they are responsible for ensuring it’s successful.

In modern times, there are loads of examples of franchises. Just look at sites like Franchise Direct, and you will come across loads of established companies selling franchise opportunities. It’s a chance for businesses to grow by expanding their reach and being seen by more people. Of course, with multiple franchises all operating under the same umbrella, it means the business can make more money.

With a franchise, the owners of each franchise will get to keep the majority of their profits. However, a percentage will go back to you as you are technically the owner of the brand and business model. This is a very popular method of expanding a business because it requires minimal effort on your behalf. The only worry is that a franchisee might run the business poorly and drag your brand through the mud. This is why it’s important to choose your franchisees wisely.

People always get chains and franchises confused because both are examples of the same business/brand existing in multiple locations across one city, country, or the world. The big difference is that a chain is owned by one corporation. If you own a business and decide to open a new location, that’s a chain. You may employ someone to manage that chain for you, but you still own it.

The benefit of chains is that you can make a lot more money as it all goes to you. Of course, you need to use your profits to pay all the employees in all of the chains, but any profits are pocketed by the business.

The major downside is that your business can lose out if a chain doesn’t do well. If a franchise fails to succeed, the local owner is the one that feels the brunt of the failure; it won’t really affect your overall business goals because you’ve not put money into the franchise. When chains fail, it does affect your bottom line. Plus, it’s more effort to manage franchises because you are in charge of everything.

Overall, both chains and franchises offer opportunities to grow your business in new locations. Both have pros and cons, so it’s up to you to decide which one you think will benefit you the most. Some of you may prefer to franchise your business, while others might go down the chain route.

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisture Cream Intense Review

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I get commission for purchases or clicks made through links in this post.

Not Sponsored: Since I LOVE Bobbi Brown's Vitamin Enriched Face Base, Vitamin Enriched Eye Base, Hydrating Eye Cream, and Hydrating Water Fresh Cream, I thought I would try her NEW Extra Repair Moisture Cream Intense (Macy's, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, Harrods, Bobbi Brown). After reading some comments on her site, this product is not really new. It's a new formula, from what everyone is saying. I've never tried it. I purchased it anyway. I like to form my own opinion. I have super dry skin. It's winter time. Bring on the MOISTURE! The jar that holds this moisturizer is super-luxe. It's a very heavy frosted glass container. Bobbi Brown's insignia is on the lid atop the jar. When you open the lid, there's a removable pot that holds the product (moisturizer). The idea is for you is to purchase the frosted jar w/lid and moisturizer initially. When you use up the moisturizer, you purchase a refill pot instead of buying the entire thing over and over again. This moisturizer has a really fresh, clean scent. It looks like marshmallow goodness. It's fluffy and whipped. That is where my sweet dream ended with this product. When I applied this moisturizer to my face, I felt that it sat atop my skin. I've dealt with heavy moisturizers before (ex: Glossier Futuredew Oil Serum), that start off heavy but eventually absorb into the skin. I kept waiting, but it never "dried down". It felt heavy, oily, greasy. It didn't feel good on my skin. I said, well maybe when I wake up ... wash everything off, I'll have moisturized skin. I did that and my skin didn't feel the least moisturized. I don't like this moisturizer, I wouldn't recommend for any skin type and I won't be purchasing it anymore. I SUPER LOVE the moisturizers from her that I linked in my first sentence. Vitamin Enriched (primer/moisturizer) is my absolute FAVORITE! You can slather it on your skin, lips, eyes and your skin will feel GRRRREAT!!! You won't feel an oily, greasy mess. For Spring/Summer use her Hydrating formula. This right here, needs to go back to the drawing board. If my super dry skin can't take it, I don't see how any other skin type can.
