Catrice HD foundation

Catrice HD foundation

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.

Crockery update

Crockery update

My selection of dishware was in for a much needed update. I had had the same plates for years and many of them had cracked and when I smashed a matching bowl I decided it was high time for a crockery update. I went with a complete mishmash of different lines, available from different stores. Not only do I like that aesthetic, I also think it will be easier to replace items once they break. As long as I stick to the blue & white color scheme, I will be good.

I’ve slowly begun getting into Chanel eyeshadow. An expensive feat, no doubt, but well worth the money if you ask me. I spotted a stunning new shade selection at my local high end make up shop: Tissé Dimensions. The mixture of a metallic silver and other cool toned shades appealed to me and after much umming and arring I decided to bite the bullet and go for it. Meet the gorgeousness that is the latest addition to my make up collection.

Favorite concealers

Favorite concealers

Time to show you my all time favorite concealers! This is a make up product I love trying out. More so than foundation if you’d believe that. And I especially like drugstore concealers, but just for good measure I threw in a few high end favorites as well. This is a list of favorites that keeps on changing, but I thought I’d try and be tough on myself and pick my 5 absolute favorite concealers.

Styling a statement necklace

Styling a statement necklace

Today I thought I’d do something a little bit different. I hardly ever talk about accessorizing on here and that’s because I don’t accessorize much with my outfits. I will just wear a bold lip and a cool nail color and let that be the accessories. Wear I used to deck myself out in different earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets, I have turned into a true minimalist when it comes to jewelry. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like a bold statement piece to spruce up an outfit. These are my favorites.

This bright red dress just livens up with a bit of chunky jewelry, don’t you think?

Travel Report: Budapest

Travel Report: Budapest

Earlier this month I spent a few days in Budapest. No major trip this year where I’m gone for weeks on end. Rather I decided to take a few short city breaks. Budapest was my second destination this year, the first being London and the final one being Rome. My Budapest trip was only 3 days long, but I still feel I got a good sense of the city. Today I’d like to share with you what I did while I was there.
