How to kickstart your day

How to kickstart your day

I am not a morning person. Never have been and never will be. My bed is my best friend and I love to sleep, hit that snooze button and just dose off a bit longer. But that is not the most productive start of your day. Surely sometimes, I like to have a good lie in, but on most mornings I have to be up and running at 6 AM to get to work on time. Here’s how I do it!

One of the steps = having breakfast

Catrice Prêt à Lumière eyeshadow

Catrice Prêt à Lumière eyeshadow

Whenever Catrice releases new eyeshadows, I am always curious. Some of their formulas are incredible, while others are a bit meh. My favorites have to be the sadly discontinued Liquid Metal shadows. Some of their singles are alright as well and I get on fairly well with their eyeshadow palettes too. So when I spotted these new Pret-a-Lumiere shadows, I knew I wanted to try them. Are these a good addition to Catrice’s ever-changing make up line?

Brand Bites | MAC

Brand Bites | MAC

Back in the day, when I first found the online beauty community and started this blog, almost 6 years ago, THE brand everyone raved about was MAC. So when I first started my own make up endeavor back in 2008/2009, MAC was the first make up brand I truly decided to invest in. Hence the extensiveness of my MAC make up collection being quite vast. I thought I’d show you all the MAC bits I have.

Milani Amore Matt & Amore Mattallics liquid lipsticks

Milani Amore Matt & Amore Mattallics liquid lipsticks

Liquid lipsticks are still very much on trend and it’s great that some more affordable brands have started putting them out as well. Milani is not that affordable where I live, as it has to be imported, but I was still very curious after people raving about their Amore Matt and Amore Mattallics lip creams. Make Up By Tatou, a newly launched beauty shop in my town, happened to stock both varieties. I picked up some to give them a shot.

My playsuits

My playsuits

On this blog I often share my dress selections. I love a good dress, but I thought it was high time to share with you another throw it on and out you go type of fashion item: the playsuit. Playsuits, or rompers, have been my go to for the hot days we’ve had this summer. Granted, there haven’t been many, but especially the past few days have been boiling. And I have found playsuits to be just perfect for super hot weather. Quite possibly even better than a dress.

Whenever a budget friendly brand such as Catrice puts out a new foundation, I’m first in line to pick it up and try it out. So when I spotted the new Catrice HD Liquid Coverage foundation that came out a few weeks ago, I was all ears. I bought the lightest shade: 010 Light Beige and I have been trying it out ever since. These are my thoughts.
