Beautiful Malta:- Fawwara

Hey Beauties,

This post is especially for our international viewers. In this post I am not going to talk about beauty related to makeup or hair, but beauty related to our beautiful country, Malta.

Last weekend I visited a place called 'Fawwara'. I knew it existed however this was the first time that  I visited this picturesque area. This is a stretch of land between Siggiewi, Rabat and Had- Dingli which are situated south west of the island.

Malta: Il- Fawwara
 Il- Fawwara: History

In the past, Fawwara was known for the large amount of water it supplied. It dates back to the times when the Arabs controlled Malta in the thirteen century. It is a host to two Chapels. one that is dedicated to Our Lady of Mount Carmel which was built in 1616 and the other one is dedicated to Our Lady of Providence which was built in 1575.

I was mesmerized by its natural beauty:

This is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places in Malta since only a couple of people live here and no cars can pass through it. I kept on walking to the top of these cliffs which go all the way to Dingli which is another quiet village in Malta.

Fawwara: Filfa
From Fawwara Cliffs, a small uninhabited island that forms part of the Maltese Archipelago, Filfa, can be clearly seen. During 1980, it became a bird reserve, where 3 types of bird species are protected. The following photos are the view that can be seen from Fawwara Cliffs:

So, if you are planning to visit Malta someday, this is a good place to start and relax on your vacation,

Until next time.

Review: Coconut Oil

Heyyy Beauties,

One of my main New Year's resolutions is to eat healthier and maintain a balanced diet with high protein foods and as minimal carbohydrates as possible. I visited a health store and bought some organic and protein filled foods. One of the products that I bought is coconut oil. I knew that it was a great moisturizer, however I did not fully now how powerful and healthy it is for us.

First off, the coconut oil that I bought is 100% raw, organic and fair trade. In Winter it is a hard consistency, therefore if it is being used to cook, it has to be melted first. However, in Summer it melts down to an oily and creamy consistency.

This product has a lot of benefits. It can substitute all your beauty products that are filled with processed chemicals, it works better and is cheaper.


  • Can be used as a face moisturiser. Beneficial for those that have acne, since it can help to clear it up. 
  • I also use it as a body moisturiser, especially after shaving. 
  • If mixed with some baking soda, it can act as a facial scrub
  • Can be used as a deep conditioner and treatment for the hair. It is beneficial even more for those that have dry and damaged hair.
  • Tames frizzy hair, if applied straight after washing it or after blow drying.
  • Can prevent and eliminate dandruff.
  • I apply coconut oil around my cuticles and also as a hand cream
  • For those who are on a diet or who have opted to a healthy lifestyle, it is a great product to substitute butter and normal oil. As can be seen from the nutritional facts below, it does not have any carbohydrates, no sugars, no gluten, no preservatives. It only has natural fats which are essential for a healthy lifestyle.

To conclude, I love this product, it is great for almost anything and it also saved me a lot of money because I use one product instead of several products which in reality are harmful. Always remember that natural is better :) I bought this product from Holland & Barrett however it can be found in any health food store.

Until next time,

Take Care,

Happy New Year! New Hair :)

Heyy Beauties,

Happy New Year to all!! :)

So for the first blog post of 2013 I am going to show you my new hair color. I have been contemplating since last Summer to change my hair color, however I was quite scared because the color that I wanted is quite risky, needs maintenance and is not such a natural color.

However, for the new year I decided to just take the plundge and do it, so yesterday I went to my usual hairdresser. The following pictures are my hair before and after. Beware: there is quite a difference hehe.

Hair New

Before, I had a dark kind of brown, but then with washing it it became quite dull. The new color is between orange and red. At first I had quite a shock when looking at the result for the first time, but then I got used to it. I really like this color and I think it is quite unique.

What do YOU think?  I am very interested to know your opinions :)

Jessica :)
