I finally got my packages yesterday. And I am absolutely loving shoes from River Island. It’s only been once that I had a bad shoe experience with RI, but all the shoes that I or my mum purchased from them lately are beautiful and VERY good quality. These stunning black boots I found on sale for only half the price, so I purchased them immediately. I love everything about them – the gold detailing, straps, lovely black leather and the fact that they are insanely comfortable. The only bad thing is that when I first tried them, it turned out the chains were slightly too long, hence awful and very loud sounds while walking. But I fixed it by removing one link from each chain. They still look fab but now in silence.

Second pair of boots I got, are these cognac ones from Aldo. I don’t own much shoes/bags or anything else of this color. I think black is easier to style, however I really liked them. Just like the RI boots, these ones are very nice quality, fit well and are comfy. I feel like it’s fine to get a cheaper faux leather pumps/ballet flats/sandals, but with boots it’s reasonable to pay a bit more and get leather ones because obviously you are wearing them when it’s cold and it’s great to have good quality shoes for winter season.

And finally, the last pair I wanted to show you guys, are these nude pumps that my Grandma gave me as a bday gift. They are also from Aldo. These classic beige heels I am going to wear a lot in Spring because the look great with literally any outfit! I am also thinking of bying the some ones in black patent since I love them so much. Also they are pretty comfortable which is a massive plus, too.

Instead of going for my favourite simple burgundy nails, I decided to make tips of my ring fingers super glittery and festive.

For anyone who doesn’t know yet, I am a massive caramel macchiato addict. I only drink venti btw. The caramel on top looks delicious!

Favourite Fall Nailpolishes

I have just realised, I haven’t done any nailpolish posts for a while now. So I wanted to share with you guys these two products, that are absolutely stunning both in terms of quality and color.
I have been using them a lot during October and I feel like they give me so many options of nail art. I can just apply 2 coats of this beautiful navy color (MaxFactor Glossfinity in ‘135 Royal Blue’), it’s fine to leave it like that, but sometimes I add this gorgeous gold shimmery color (Sally Hansen Lustre Shine in ‘003 Firefly’) on my ring fingers. That looks quite edgy and cool. Also, I have noticed that this goldish nailpolish looks quite sheer and light on its own, so whenever I want it on my nails, I first apply 1 coat of black or navy nailpolish, and then 2 coats of the Sally Hansen one.
Definitely try them if you are a fan of deeper and more intense nail polish shades. I love them because they are great consistency, dry quite fast and stay on for a while.

Favourite Red Nailpolish

I’ve been looking for a perfect blood red nail polish for a while. Some are too bright, but this one from Max Factor (European Version of Cover Girl) is fantastic! It’s in color 110 Red Passion. The product is VERY opaque, VERY glossy, dries well and stays on for up to 6 days. Definitely getting some more shades of Max Factor nail polishes!

Hi guys!

It’s crazy and I can’t believe April is over!!! The good thing is that I’ve tried a lot of stuff during the month of April and I would like to share with you, ladies.

Let’s start with my beauty favourites:

Image

The big bottle from L’oreal is my favourite hair treatment. ‘Extraordinary Oil’ makes my hair super heathy, shiny and smells lovely. Also it doesn’t make my hair look greasy at all. I apply 2 pumps of this stuff on my hair everyday, trying to put more on the ends. Amazing product. You can find it at feelunique.com and it’s around $20 as far as I remember.It’s quite expensive, but it’ll last me at least 4 months, so I think it’s a pretty good deal.

Next – hydrating eye cream from Garnier. I use this product before going to bed every night, and then in the morning after I wash my face I apply Garnier’s roll-on eye gel. Overall, I like Garnier as it works great for my skin. This particular cream has a nice light-weight and delicate formula which is perfect for young skin.

The 2 nailpolishes on the photo I’ve been wearing a lot lately. In fact, if I’m not wearing my black matte nails, you would probably see me with OPI’s ‘My private jet’. And I love the name too:)

I find that OPI and Rimmel nailpolishes are always such good quality, they dry fast and the most important – they have opaque formulation. Speaking about this matte topcoat, it’s great! Looks amazing on black nailpolish. Just overall a nice product for a very good prise.

I know I’ve been talking a lot about my ‘Peaches’ blush by MAC, but I really think it’s a beautiful color and I’ve been using it a lot during April. Also I like the combo of this blush with Rimmel’s Apocalips lip stain in color ‘Luna’. And OMG I love this lip product! Very moisturising, stays on well, nice color pay-off and it smells like… cucumbers))) Anyways, it smells like cucumbers to me – a very fresh light scent not typical-sweet-lippy scent, you know.

That’s all for my beauty and makeup favourites.

For my fashion favourites, I thought it would be interesting to write about a celebrity inspiration instead of just clothes. I mean, there is a bunch of celebs out there who have stunning sense of style and fashion, right?

Okay, this month I’ve been absolutely loving this guy’s wordrobe)). And I am amazed by evolution of his style.

I am talking about a 23-year old rockstar from Germany Bill Kaulitz.

This guy used to always be edgy and unique in terms of fashion and self-expression.

That’s how he looked 5 years ago and this is how he looks now. Bill definitely grew up a lot. He used to look ‘gothic boy’ kinda cute and now he looks like a full-blooded hot rockstar.

I love his hair too – very edgy but still cute.

I know Bill’s fashion transformations are a bit over the top for some people, but I think his style is brilliant – a perfect combination of rockstar and a gentleman.

Going to my favourite movie of April, it is most definitely this one:

devils_double_ver3

If you haven’t watched ‘The Devil’s Double’,  watch it – you’ll 100% love it!!! It’s smart but also very entertaining.

For the music I’ve been listening most in April, I’ve picked these songs:

‘Talk’  by Coldplay

‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by Foster the People

and my favourite ‘Jesus for the Jugular’ by the Veils. It’s an OST from ‘the Devil’s Double’ btw, and if you watched the movie you’ll definitely remember what scene it is from 🙂 lol

That’s it it for my monthly favourites.

I love dark matte nails! I know it’s spring and people are actually using more pastel and neon nailpolishes but I still stick to my dark ones. On his photo I am wearing Rimmel 60 seconds nailpolish in ‘Deliciously dark’ and Matte Finish topcoat also from Rimmel.

Image

Yep, matte again. Same products as on the previous photo, plus Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength nailpolish in ‘Wedding crasher’ on my ring finger.

Image

‘My private jet’ from OPI is so unique. It’s very dark, but still it’s not plain black.

Hi dolls,

You know how obsessed I am with nailpolish and nail art, and so it has been such a challenge for me to pick just 3 nailpolishes that I really really do love.

Okay, let’s jump right into it. My #1 favourite is Complete Salon Manicure by Sally Hansen in color ‘Pat on the black 660’. I own different nailpolishes by Sally Hansen, but I feel like Xtreme wear and Diamond Strength don’t dry too fast and start chipping too soon.

Image

The color is gorgeous. Apply one coat and you get a beautiful creamy purple/burgundy, apply two, and it’s almost black. It’s opaque, not sheer at all, dries VERY fast. The brush is amazing too, and it stays on for good 5-7 days.

My #2 is 60 Seconds by Rimmel in ‘320 Rapid Ruby’. It’s formula and flat brush is very similar to the Sally Hansen’s one, but it starts to chip in 4-6 days after application. But because the price is so good I don’t mind reapplying 😉

Image

As you can see, no matter it’s spring, I stick to my darks, burgundy and red))))

But this color is sooooo beautiful in person, it’s darker, almost burgundy.

The third place goes to P2 Silk Ridgefiller. I love this stuff. I got it as a gift from a friend, who lives in Germany. It doesn’t have any color, but it leaves my nails looking so naturally beautiful and polished. The finish is almost matte.

Image

It dries fast, and I love how it feels on my nails. Also, I know that some people use it as a base coat, but for me it doesn’t work like that. It literally takes 100 years to dry after I apply a second coat of nailpolish.

And now, the Nailpolish Disappointment. It’s weird because overall, I like Maybelline makeup and nailpolishes, but this one was just horrible quality!!!

Image

I was looking for a simple white nailpolish for a couple of weeks now – white nails are huuuuge for spring. I was so excited to try it out, because it looked perfect in the bottle. However, it turned out to be hideous! The color is soooooooooooo sheer, you have to apply at least 3-4 coats for it to look alright. It also dries incredibly slowly. So yeah, very upset with it. If you guys know where I can get a good opaque white nailpolish, please tell me 🙂

Hope you enjoyed,
