Bloominous - DIY Flowers Made Easy

Floral arrangements are a must at weddings. And with all the planning and designing, brides almost never find time to prepare for this, which is basically something I consider that would make or break the wedding. Ive never been good when it comes to floral arrangements, that's something I leave to the professionals. But sometimes they just cant deliver what you really want. And I have never been so glad in my life to come across what I consider as an event lifesaver- Bloominous.

Bloominous is an online shop that caters to all your wedding flower arrangement needs. All these and more, you can do at the comforts of your own home. The idea is actually very simple, all you have to do is choose which flowers you want and they will take care of the rest. The kit will be delivered to you, and everything you need to make that perfect bouquet is right at your doorstep in no time,

What makes it even more fun is that they have five different collections that you can choose from. So no matter what the theme of the event is, you'll be sure to find the perfect floral arrangement! Here are the different themes that you can choose from.

Party Pop Collection

This just screams "pink" in all direction! I really like this one because its so sweet and girly. The colors of the flowers stands out, giving the atmosphere that sweet feel.


Vintage Cottage Collection

This collection is classy at best. Its also french inspired, which makes the setting more romantic. The colors are simple but elegant, making it perfect for weddings.


Bohemian Desert Collection

For any fun events, this theme would be so perfect. The different colored flowers complements the whole setting, giving the place a playful and colorful atmosphere. The pop of colors on the florals are very unique and pretty too.


Country Charm Collection

I love sunflowers! And this collection will not disappoint. Ive always been fond of country living, and the bright yellow colors of the flowers displays that country feel.


Eco Chic Collection

Simplicity is indeed beauty. I like how subtle the decoration is, but still exudes classiness and elegance. This would be perfect if you are looking for floral arrangements that aren't overboard with decorations.


Lovely isnt it? Bloominous takes into consideration their clients, and their passion for this craft is something that you will see in their products. Here are some reasons as to why they are on top of their crafts:

Review: Sophie Lipstick in Ice Pink (SLPK01)

The weather's pretty gloomy these past few weeks. I have a feeling another typhoon is coming :3 So today I decided to do a review of one of my lip products, the Sophie Lipstick in Ice Pink. Ive had this item for a year or two I guess, so now I can properly give it a review :)


The packaging is very cute and simple. Its a black tube with floral prints and the company logo printed in pink! Yay.


I really loved the floral designs on the tube. Pink and black is really a very good color combination on beauty products because I feel like they entice more people to buy them because of cuteness overload.


I bought this lipstick at a very affordable price, more or less $2. I think there are 3 or 4 more shades in this line, and I got this shade which is called Ice Pink and another one called Cotton Peach.


Also printed on the tube is the expiry date of the product which is on 2015. I think its also important that expiry dates be printed on any beauty products because we would know when to throw away products that are no longer suitable for use. I always check for labels and ingredients of products I use too.


The color name really suits this lipstick because its a pretty Ice Pink in shade. I think this color became a trend in the last 2 years? I remember seeing this lipstick color being worn all over beauty bloglandia and I was dying to try it also. Perhaps that was one of the reasons why I got this haha. Here are some photos of the lipstick.

This lipstick has a matte finish, so if you wanted something that is not sticky like lipglosses, then you should give this a try. But the downside of it is that I find it a little hard to apply because of its consistency. So it would help if you apply lip balm on your lips first for the lipstick to glide on smoothly.


But the good thing is that this lipstick surprisingly lasts longer. I guess we all have to thank its matte consistency as being the reason why it does not come of easily, even when I was eating and drinking.


And now here is a photo comparison of the lipstick when worn. Its really a vibrant pink, but when light shines on it (like camera flash) it somewhat turns into a purplish pink. Or something purple-ish. Still, its a pretty color I must say.

And lastly, here is a #shamelessselfie, as what its called on instagram. Hehe :P Overall, I dont think this color is a good match for me for daily use. Although I would use it for parties or night out or special occasion, just not for daily use because I find it too flashy for my liking.


Pros:
+ affordable
+ avalable locally
+ matte finish
+ lasts longer
+ nice color
+ durable
+ nice packaging

Cons:
- a little difficult to apply

And thats it! Hopefully I will be posting a review of the other Sophie Lipstick that I own next. I now have time to blog and take photos so I hope I can keep up with daily posting. I kinda went MIA for a year and I want to be back on track with posting. Happy reading! :)
