Catrice Icon Nails

Catrice Icon Nails

Catrice has completely revamped their nail polish line. I already spotted them on Instagram, but now I also spotted them in store. I decided to pick up three shades to try out and see how they work. I have yet to wear them on my nails, but I was so enthusiastic at first swatch, that I just couldn’t contain myself and just HAD to write this blog post straightaway.

What I’ve been up to #6

What I’ve been up to #6

The last time I did a What I’ve Been Up To? September last year. That’s right, it’s been over 4 months since I last gave you an overview of what has been going on in my life. The reason is very simple: I’ve been busy, crazy busy. I don’t share much of what I’m up to online, but I spent every weekend and all my days off doing something, be it work, be it social, be it blogging. Especially the lead up to Christmas was insane and I was glad to start my vacation. That vacation is now almost over, meaning I’m about to return to the real world. Here’s what the latter quarter of 2016 looked like for me.

Curious to see what I’ve been up to all these months? Then keep on reading.

Zoeva Plaisir Box: Blanc Fusion, Caramel Melange, Cocoa Blend eyeshadow palettes + giveaway!!!

Zoeva Plaisir Box: Blanc Fusion, Caramel Melange, Cocoa Blend eyeshadow palettes + giveaway!!!

For this Holiday season, Zoeva has come out with the Plaisir box. What it is? A luxury gift box containing 3 eyeshadow palettes, two of which are brand new to their line. Inspired by chocolate, you can find a white, milk and dark chocolate inspired eyeshadow palette in this boxed set. Zoeva themselves call it ‘an ode to the fine art of confectionary’ and I think that is an apt way of describing these palettes. I already love me some Zoeva palettes, which is why I included a little surprise for you at the end of this blog post.

Spring time tag

Spring time tag

Sunday = tag time! I found this tag on A Love Tart’s Youtube channel and decided to write it up as a blog post. The questions are all beauty related, but I just couldn’t help but add this stunning picture I took of Molen De Valk in my home town last Friday. I mean, look at that crisp air, the reflection rippling in the water and that stunning gradient sunrise in the background. If you want to see more pictures from my daily life, follow me on Instagram @indiequeen84.
