Beauty favies of 2013 !

Hello everyone! Well, tomorrow we will be waking up in a new year! It's so exciting (and a little terrifying too but that's probably just me)!
My last post of 2013 is going to be my beauty favourites. All year I tried different products and I found a lot of products that I liked! I have many more favourites than in this post, but these are my absolute favourites! Time for a little recap! 

Face products

Catrice has surprised me very often this year! They have done so well and the quality has gotten better and better. They also had lovely limited editions. I'm absolutely stunned by their foundations. So inexpensive, yet great coverage.  Click here for my review on the All Matt plus foundation.

Need a little more coverage? No problem, because the "Camouflage Cream" by Catrice is the creamiest, best and most inexpensive concealer you'll find in the drugstore. Some compare it to MAC's concealer - only cheaper.

Back when I went to get my "Nude 'Tude" palette by The Balm, I got this blush as a gift. It's a super bright colour but that the way I love it. Very pigmented as well! Here's my review!

I had a lot of favourite makeup palettes, but I have also been loving single eyeshadows. I said it before: Catrice has been rockin' it this year. Their liquid metal eyeshadows have been favourites of mine ever since I got them. Here's my review!

This Nude Tude palette by The Balm is - I think - my absolute favourite palette of this year. Good packaging (really cute, I mean, look at those pin-up girls!), great pigmentation, lots of colours to choose from so even if you just had this palette, you'd be able to make a ton of looks!

Also loving this year: my ELF palettes! These two palettes are amazing! Every colour you will ever need are in these palettes! Click here for the review on my bright palette and click here for the review on my neutral palette!

My Maybelline Color Tattoo has been a favourite as well! Even though I have only had it for a coupe of days, I've used it every single day and I LOVE it. It really sticks like a tattoo!

Lip products

I have so many (red) lipsticks that I wouldn't know which ones to use first. My two favourites were quite hard to pick, but if I had to choose, I would have my Rimmel London Apocalips lip lacquer in "The Big Bang" and my MAC "Russian Red" lipstick ( a really good inexpensive dupe is "Kiss of life" by Rimmel London, I love that one as well!).

Thanks for reading! Have a lovely evening and I'll see you next year!

My resolutions for the new year!

Hello everyone!
New Year is coming up very soon and even though I think the last year went by way too fast, I do have some resolutions for the new year.

Last year was good but I want to make this year even better. I want to work more but I also want to make more time for friends and people that I love. I have let them down a little last year because of work and because I wanted to do well in school.
I want to do thesame this year, but I just want to find a little more balance. I also hope my blog will be doing as well as it did last year. I also hope I get to film more tutorials.

One thing that I also want to do this year is to travel. I will be going to Prague with school but since I`m turning 18 this year, I want to go on (a few) trip(s). I hope it`ll work out, you never know when it`s going to be too late to travel; something might happen to me (physically or financially) that might make me unable to travel. I hope not.

Aside from those little things, I can`t complain about my life, I just hope it can and will continue as it did last year.

As for you, my readers who have supported me, I hope you can make all your wishes come true in 2014.
For those who had a hard time last year, I hope it will get better soon. I hope life smiles at you and challenges you to go on. It isn`t always easy, I know that, but I hope you go on with a positive attitude and make the best of it.

Let's make 2014 an amazing year!

Weekly Diary

Hello everyone!
How are you doing? This week has been a quite special week, Christmas was finally here! Christmas is the only holiday that I look forward to every year. Anyway, there has been more than only Christmas! Let's start with the end of the exams.

What a relief, the end of the exams. I went home and catched up on my sleep. I also tried a little anti stress mask. I always stress more than I think I do. Luckely my report card was quite surprising in a good way, I didn't even fail math!

I also recorded a couple of videos. I'm starting to really like it. I have two videos up already!

Remember this outfit that I got for my cat? I wrote about it in a Weekly Diary quite a while ago but I thought it was so cute! Santa Cat! This was so holiday appropriate.

And then it was Christmas Eve! Lovely food, a couple of drinks and presents!

The present I got from my sister: these shoes! I could pick out something I wanted and well, I liked these a lot.

My present to myself! 


My present from my dad! My sister and I also got an amount of money to go shopping (quite a lot actually!) so I didn't expect anything else, yet before I left for work on Christmas day, he gave me this. Awww! So sweet.

I hope you all had a lovely week! Are you looking forward to New Year's?!

Maybelline Color Tattoo review

Yes. I did it. Enough of the doubting and stalling the purchase of this product. I've been wanting it for such a long time, I decided to go ahead and buy it for myself as a Christmas present!
I'm talking about the Maybelline Color Tattoo, in case you didn't know I've been wanting it for a really long time.

As always, I stood there, not knowing which colour I wanted to pick first. I just wanted all of them! However, my brain said I should pick a colour that I would and could wear everyday. So I went for "Permanent Taupe".

This is what the colour looks like. Perfect taupe. I think I'm in love! I have worn it on it's own like an eyeshadow but I've also used it as a base for eyeshadow and it looks beautiful in both ways!


The texture is so incredibly creamy and pigmented. It's a real pleasure to work with.

Swatch! You can see yourself how beautiful it is.

I'm very happy with this Color Tattoo. It's everything I wanted and more, I can for sure understand why other bloggers love it so much.
I paid €10, which is about $13.69. I thought it was a little much for a cream eyeshadow but the quality is good so I'm happy to pay the full price.

Thanks for reading!

My Christmas!

Hello everyone! How are you guys doing? I hope you all had an amazing Christmas. Like I promised, I want to show you what happened in my life on Christmas. 

The day before Christmas Eve I went shopping. I needed a couple of dresses and some other basics. Luckely, I scored a lot of amazing items on clearance! Such as this pair of shoes (my sister paid them for me as a Christmas present). Aren't they lovely?!

 I also got this dress from New Look! I love it! I think it's so pretty, very gala-ish.

 On Christmas Eve I went to have dinner with my sister and her boyfriend. We started out with a few appetizers and a few drinks. Oh, and a movie. We watched "Prisoners", which wasn't a good Christmas movie haha! It was quite interesting though!

 Cheers! I normally don't drink because, well, because I don't feel the need to drink, but if someone offers me a drink I can't say no because I don't want to be impolite.

My outfit for going out that night. The dress and the statement necklace (yes, I finally have a statement necklace!) are by H&M.

 My shoes for the night! I think they're gorgeous! Even though it was the first night I wore them, they felt quite comfortable.

When I got up the next morning (on Christmas) to go to work, my dad gave me the "Sex and the city by night" perfume and deodorant! How sweet! 
Especially since he spoiled me a lot lately and I wasn't expecting another present.


How was your Christmas? Did you have a nice time?

My everyday MAC makeup look

Hello everyone!
I have not hidden the fact that I love MAC on this blog. Today I have a "getting ready" video (after the many failed attempts, haha!) for you in which I use my MAC eyeshadows. If you click the link below, it will take you to my video. You might also notice that I have another channel, this is because I want to use that channel for more than just one blog so I hope you understand.


Don't forget to describe! Thank you! 
Have a lovely day!

Christmasproof and budgetproof lipsticks

The jolly holidays are coming up and as always, I'm going for a festive makeup look. Even though I wear lipstick on a daily basis, I also like to wear it on special occasions, such as Christmas.
Today I want to show you my red lipstick collection and give you a few recommendations, in case you're still looking for a lovely red lipstick.

Here you can see all the lipsticks, I have a couple of darker ones (berry) and a couple of really bright ones. The normal bright lipsticks I have and that I woul recommend are by MAC "Russian Red", Kate Moss for Rimmel London in 111 "Kiss of Life", Miss Sporty "Malaga". 

I also have a couple of lovely red lipglosses. The Essence stay matt lipcream in "Silky Red" and my Rimmel London Apocalips lip laquer in "The Big Bang" are my absolute favourites and they are christmasproof! They're also not expensive.


I only have two darker lipsticks. One is called "On the catwalk" by Essence and one is by Kate Moss for Rimmel London, it's called "107".
 "107" is slightly darker than "On the catwalk". Both of those lipsticks are in my heart haha, if you're wondering which one to get: Rimmel London is more 'expensive', Essence needs more touching up due to the creamy texture.

Thanks for reading!

Currently loving ♥

Hello you guys!
It's been quite a while since I've done a current favies post.The jolly holidays are coming up faster and faster and I'm kind of in the mood for it, I love the holidays! Today I want to show you some other things that I've been loving as well lately. Take a peek?

I have been listening to Pharrell Williams' "Happy" a lot lately. It's really an instant feel good song, I love it. I think there should be more music like this!

At the moment I'm a little sick because of the weather, but I love taking walks in the park. Look how pretty the leaves are!

I love interior design and I love animals. God, I've been drooling over these pictures haha! So beautiful! Yes, I know, I know, a bit unrealistic, but still.

Gossip Girl! I don't follow any series on television because I have a work schedule that tends to change often but lately (since the last day of the exams), I've been watching Gossip Girl on my computer. I'm hooked.

As weird as it may sound, I have been loving green eye looks. I've also been wearing burgundy more! Festive!

What have you been loving recently? Had a good Christmas?

A holly jolly Christmas makeup look

Hello everyone! I'm sorry for updating rather late today, I didn't notice I didn't have a post scheduled until I got home from work!

I know I'm a little bit late but I have one last Christmas makeup look. In case you haven't decided what you want to do with your makeup yet, here's one last suggestion.
I have a couple of pictures ànd a getting ready video, so you can see how I did it and what it ended up looking like.
I used a lot of greens because, well, I have been loving green looks lately - and this way, you'll be matching with the Christmas tree (just kidding, the greens I'm using aren't that bright).

If you click this link it will take you to my video. (And subscribe?)
By the way, Youtube changed something in my video because I 'moved too much'. I hope by the time you see the video it will be back to normal, if not, I'm working on it!

If you croll down, you'll be able to see the pictures of this look. I hope you enjoy (and get some inspiration out of it?).

Thanks for reading! Have a lovely day!
I hope you are all having a lovely time with your friends and family. Merry Christmas!
Lots of love!
