It’s the end of the month and that means it is time to have a look back at what I have been up to this month. Like last month, it was a month with some ups and some downs. I definitely enjoyed myself for the majority of it, but I was swamped by grading and my heating broke down, which was a fun thing to deal with (NOT!). But this post is about the happy things so here are some things that brought me joy in the month of November.Read more
I finally got my hands on the new Essence products for fall/ winter 2019. They took a while to make their appearance in stores and there are also not that many new products to feature. That is why in today’s post there is also a bit of a surprise for you to celebrate my blog’s 9 year anniversary and my Youtube channel’s 2000 subscriber count. Here’s to 9 more years!Read more
It’s the season for giveaways! And that is why I and 11 other Dutch bloggers have decided to host a bloghop giveaway. A bloghop giveaway? Yes, 12 bloggers, 12 blogs and 12 giveaways: you can hop around to different blogs and complete the chain to participate in 12 different giveaways. It may very well be that you came here because you visited Tatiana’s blog and I will be linking you through to Jolanda’s blog and that way we create a chain of blogs and therefore a chain of giveaways for you to participate in.

It has been ages since I last did a giveaway. I don’t do them too often, but I think it is time to give back. And for two reasons! On 4 September 2018, this blog, this little nook on the WWW came up on its 8th anniversary. 8 years! As if things could not get any better, I hit 1000 subscribers on Youtube last Saturday. So I felt it was time to organize a little giveaway to give back to all of you who have embarked on this journey with me and who are commenting regularly on my posts and videos.

My goal for 2018? Wearing more colorful eyeshadow. And so I went on a quest for some good colorful palettes. In today’s video, I am talking you through 10 colorful palettes that I have been. Some have been in my collection for years, some I only tried recently. There are 5 more affordable and 5 more high end picks. I hope you enjoy!

You know I love my Urban Decay palettes and every year when they bring out their holiday releases, I’m keeping my eyes peeled for them to be released. In the sea of eyeshadow palettes, I love my Urban Decay best. I don’t like all of them, as I explained in yesterday’s video, but I like many and that is also why I have quite a few. When I saw the Heavy Metals palette pop up on Instagram I knew: this is right up my street. Is this a case of OMG-Urban-Decay-did-it-again or one of Oh-no-they-didn’t?

I have not had the hots for many OPI polishes lately, but there is still the one off that I do love. Case in point: the Iceland collection for fall. There were a few polishes in this collection that caught my eye, but ultimately I felt they were to similar to colors I already owned. Apart from one that is: Turn on the Northern Lights.
