The printed top haul

The printed top haul

Me one sunny Easter weekend: let’s see if I can find a great white tee as I decluttered mine. And then this happened. Whoopsie! But there are so many great t-shirts and tops out there right now! I also decluttered lots of my tops and t-shirts as I find they typically last 1 or 2 years before they become old and tatty looking. Which is why I felt my wardrobe could use a bit of sprucing up and since fashion is all about great tops at the moment, I decided it was better to go big or go home.

OPI I Can Never Hut Up

OPI I Can Never Hut Up

The days where I would be tempted to buy a full range of a limited edition OPI nail polish collection are long gone. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love the brand. I simply own a lot of nail polish (in fact, it is in a desperate need of a declutter) which means not that many shades of nail polish excite me anymore. So when I first spotted the spring 2017 nail polish collection I wasn’t too hyped for it. Until I saw ‘I Can Never Hut Up’ in real life and knew that this would be a great addition to the collection.

Tips for beauty shopping in the US & the UK

Tips for beauty shopping in the US & the UK

I love to travel and one thing I love to look for when I am traveling are make up and beauty products. My main goal is of course to find items that are difficult or impossible to get where I live. Also if I can get products a lot cheaper, then buying something while traveling can be a good idea. Most of my travels have taken me to the US and the UK and that’s why I know those countries best in terms of beauty shopping. These are my tips.

Spring music picks

Spring music picks

Have you been digging the sunshine as much as I have? And with sunshine and spring time comes happy and dreamy music! And since I have plenty of happy and dreamy music to go around, I figured I could share a few of my favorite ‘YAY it’s spring’ music picks. I have selected 10 songs that are perfect for this time of year. None of these songs are new by any means and I may have featured one or two of these on the blog before, but still worth a share in my opinion. Enjoy!

Catrice Light & Shadow Contouring Blush

Catrice Light & Shadow Contouring Blush

Peachy blush tones for spring are some of my favorites. Where I wear little to no peach blushes in the winter time and opt for dusty pinks instead, I bust out the peach blush in full throttle every year come spring time. Whether I opt for Milani Luminoso, MAC’s Fresh Honey, or my Kiko Apricot blush, peach is where it is at. When I spotted Catrice doing a stunning peach shade too, I picked it up and tried it out.

Brand Bites | Chanel

Brand Bites | Chanel

In today’s video, I will be giving you an overview of my Chanel make up products. I don’t own many and what I have was collected over a number of years. When I first started in make up I thought make up had to be expensive to be good. Boy, was I wrong. So that is why some of these products go waaaay back. This will be the last brand bites video I do, as I am running out of brands to do dedicated videos on. But I hope you enjoy this one and enjoy your Easter Sunday!

Essence Blossom Dreams limited edition

Essence Blossom Dreams limited edition

For spring 2017 Essence did not only renew its standard line, but they also released a brand new limited edition. When I spotted it in store, I figured it would be nice to try some products out. My interest was piqued mostly by the nail effect pigments, which can transform your average polish into a (duo)chrome extravaganza. However, I of course cannot say no to a rainbow highlighter and a pretty eyeshadow palette either. This is the review.
