June Beauty Roundup

July 27, 2015

That time of the month has finally arrived, and I don’t mean THAT time of the month. I mean the time to share and talk about the beauty products I have tried and added to my beauty regime this month.

Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara (*) – Definitely one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried. The wand is shaped like a a cone (it looks like a tiny Christmas tree) and is perfect for applying the product from the inner to the outer lashes effectively. The mascara product is quite liquid but thick at the same time and a single application is generous enough to make your eyelashes pop out like you’ve put on some fakes. I’d definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to try a new type of mascara.

Nail polish additions – I can’t resist a nail polish bottle. It’s a real problem for me, I admit it. We have been through this before but in case you missed it last month, here is a photo of the extension of my problem. These cute Nails Inc bottles have been the latest additions to my collection and I found them in TK Maxx. TK Maxx is great for a bargain and the beauty products on offer are no exception.

ARTDECO (*) – I have to admit that I didn’t know this brand existed until I was sent an email offering a couple of samples to try. With a name like that, I was sold immediately, as I love anything Art Deco! My ignorance of the brand is due to the fact that only now they are launching in the UK, despite going for 3o years already in Germany! For this reason, Art Deco are offering a 30% discount on all sales from the website on their most emblematic products. You can find them not only on the website but also at Debenhams. I have tried the Ultra Quick Dry Top Coat (seeing that I love my nail polish, this is great) and the High Precision Liquid Liner (great for my and both work really well

Week in Photos

July 28, 2013

Hello friends! Not a lot happened this week, as you can see… Here are my new unicorn socks as well as my current favourite necklace, that I purchased on offer from the Victoria and Albert Museum. The weather’s been real nice and I’ve been wearing sandals almost every day. woo! The nail polish colours are from Hema (from my trip to Belgium) and Mini HD (a present from Sandrine, who brought it from Paris). I also picked up this Stars and Stripes bralet on a sale for £2, for that price I wouldn’t mind trying out that trend. I have to say it worked out well.

How was your week?


Week in photos

May 12, 2013

Not much happened this past week. Tuesday I went to the GP and was give a sick note to stay home for another week as I was still pretty bruised and achy. So it was mainly another week of not doing or moving much. I feel a lot better today and I will be going back to work tomorrow!

I caught up with the last season of Fringe. It was good. I did my nails too – Barry M’s Neptune Sea – a grayish blue with some tiny specks of turquoise blue in it. Looks a lot nicer in person.

Some blossoms I photographed when I left the house last Tuesday to see the GP. The day was lovely. Too bad I didn’t stay out long enough to enjoy it…

My new night cream and ice cream nail polish from Etude House have arrived from Korea. Nail polish can’t get any cuter than this!

My friend and housemate Iain went to Toronto for a week and brought me back a snowglobe for my collection, yay! I also got this modern Biba dress from Ebay – it cost me £10, the original tag says £125. Yikes!

The highlight of the week has been looking at the Met Gala outfits, under the theme ‘Punk’. Strangely enough Kanye West was selected as the entertainment. I have now produced proof that Kanye is as punk as punk can be.

Hope you are having a nice Sunday 🙂
