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.

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 guys!

Image

I am so in love with my nails! I am wearing navy matte nailpolish with a little bit of gold. I know, it’s spring and there are so many pretty pastels and neons out there, but I am a 100% a dark nailpolish girl 🙂

And since it’s getting warmer, I got a pair of new shoes. They are comfy, versatile and cute. But the best part about them is that they are glittery and studded at the same time!

Image

The studs are gold, which I love!!! And the lining is just adorable. I think Betsey Johnson flats are lovely!

What do you guys think?

Hugs 🙂

Hi,

I literally just opened my last package from Asos. I instagramed the pictures of what I ordered, and thought it would be great to share with you guys 🙂

I didn’t get much, just a couple of items:

Image

How cute is this little ring 🙂 I love it! It has little crystals and two gold-tone spikes. Also it’s not a single ring, it’s a set of two small rings, that you can wear separately, or together. I got this ring on sale for only $7!

If you are wondering about my nails, they re short again and I don’t know whether to be happy or sad about it… Anyways, they’ll grow back again soon. And yes, I have a new nailpolish from Sally Hansen Salon Manicure. This beautiful dark burgundy/purple, almost black color, is called ‘Pat on the Black 660’. I think it’s very similar to Essie’s ‘Wicked’. What do you guys think?

Image

Okay, let me just say that I NEVER buy the same things in different colors, except for basic tees (you can’t have too many of those, right), but the moment I saw these beauties, I knew I was going to get more than one pair! Asos offers them in green, champagne, white, coral, blue (remind me a lot of Anna Dello Russo’s collection for H&M) and clear ones. And they are all gorgeus!!!! As you can see I got them in green and champagne, because I think the green ones will accentuate my green eyes, and the champagne wil look cute on anyone with warm skin tone. I must say that white, coral and blue ones will look fabulous on girls with deeper skintones. As for the earings with clear stones, they are not exactly clear, as they have blue, green and pink undertones to them. Very pretty!

As always the quality and design of Asos jewellery is amazing! I got each pair for $14.

Also, I wanted to inform you guys that Asos has a new promo code. 25% off discount for 48 hours. Just enter code HAPPYJAN at checkout. Isn’t that great! 🙂

Hope you guys enjoy the promo code 😉

Hello everyone,

First of all I wanted to remind you guys that the giveaway is closing up on January 25th, so hurry if you want to enter. You still have a chance to win!!! The rules are easy – follow me on Instagram, follow, comment and like this blog.

So the winner is going to get some of my all-time favourite beauty products:

Image

The winner gets bronzer, blush, mascara, lipstick in peachy-pink color, brow gel – all from Vivienne Sabo, which is an amazing French makeup brand. Also eyeshadow and highlighter/eyeshadow from Sephora and Rimmel’s Kate lipstick in nude color.

On weekend I am going to announce the lucky winner. And the giveaway is international btw

Also I wanted to mention, that one of the reasons I haven’t posted for a while is because I’ve been pretty busy with my photoshoot. I was not only a model, but I also did my hair and makeup, which I am super excited about:)

So yesterday the photographer contacted me saying the first photo was ready!

Image

I was a bit nervous because it was my first real photoshoot, but it all turned out to be so much fun!!!

The makeup I used: Rimmel’s Stay Matte foundation, Maybelline Affinitone concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, for my brows I used color ‘Tease’ from Urban Decay’s Naked2 palette, Vivienne Sabo’s Coup De Genie Eyebrow pencil in 001 to create a perfect arch and Fixateur Eyebrow gel also from Vivienne Sabo.

For my eyes I used: ‘Bootycall’ from Naked2 palette on my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes, as well as a little bit of ‘Verve’. On my lids I put ‘YDK’ and ‘Snakebite’. I usually use more of ‘Half Baked’ and ‘Chopper’, but this time I wanted a more drammatic look, so I used darker shades. For my outer corner of the eye I used ‘Busted’, which is a gorgeous shimmery dark brown color. For my crease I used a beautiful burgundy-ish color (if you can say that, it’s a shimmery mixture of burgundy, purple and brown) from Vivienne Sabo’s eyeshadow quad in 66. Instead of an eyeliner I used ‘Blackout’ from Naked2.

On my lower lash line I applied Maybelline’s Master Smoky shadow-pencil in ‘Smoky Chocolate’ and a little bit of ‘Busted’ on top of that. For my waterline I used a cheap 1$ white pencil, you can basically use any one you like, mine is from Golden Rose. I don’t use white pencils too much, but because I didn’t manage to get a good sleep before the photoshoot, I had to apply it. As for the mascara, I used, ‘Diva’s Lashes’ from Pupa.

Next step – bronzer. I used ‘Voyage en Provance’ from Vivienne Sabo (the same one I got for the giveaway). It’s not too shimmery, not orange at all. It makes my skin really soft and smells amazing. Then goes blush, mine also from Vivienne Sabo ‘Teinte Delicate’ in 12 (the winner gets one too).

Also a highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes, cupid’s bow and cheek bones. I used ‘Mineralize Skinfinish’ in soft and gentle from Mac. And to set my makeup I used Urban Decay’s De Slick setting spray because my skin is oily. But if you have dry to normal skin, you probably can skip that part.

Okay, for my lips I used a cheap nude pink pencil from Flormar, my favourite lipstick ever ‘Charme de Vous’ in 112 from Vivienne Sabo (the lucky winner gets it too) and on top of that I used the best lipgloss ever ‘Precious Pink Jewels’ from Sephora. It makes my lipstick last for good 3-4 hours, is not sticky at all! Very lightweight on my lips, smells great and has a perfect applicator.

That’s it for my makeup 🙂 I know, it might sound complicated, but it isn’t. It took me around 35 minutes to do it.

For my hair I used my curling wand from Babyliss. I love it so much!

On my nails I got ‘Xtreme Wear’ nailpolish in ‘Black Out’ from Sally Hansen.

For my outfit (the part of it you can see on the photo), I am wearing a basic black tee from Zara, black leather jacket from Religion, my earrings are no-name, they are from a local store, my watch is from Paul’s Boutique (love it to death))) and my both bracelets are from Asos.

Hope u guys like it 🙂

Hi guys,

Sorry for not posting for a whole week. I can’t say I’ve been super busy or something, it’s just the cold weather is affecting me too much – I haven’t even bought any makeup! 😦

Anyways, I’m back and I would like to tell you about my obsession with everything burgundy. I must admit, just a couple of months ago I thought it was ugly and boring, but everything changed when I got burgundy lipstick from Vivienne Sabo, then I got a lovely nailpolish, which I think is a perfect dark red color.

Image

I am not a fan of bright red, so burgundy is what I call ‘perfect red’. The nailpolish is in color ‘320 Rapid Ruby’ and the lippy is in color 107. And sorry for the mess on the background 🙂

I am a tiny bit conscious of going out wearing this dark lipstick, coz I am not used to it. For the last couple of years I’ve been mostly wearing nude, pink or peachy lip products. But I’ve decided to give it a shot, and I am definitely going to wear it during the photoshoot, I am having in January.

Image

It’s quite a pain in the butt to apply it precisely though. Especially for those, who are not used to bright/dark lipsticks. So I do recommend to use a lip liner. Trust me, it makes the application as easy as it can be.

I told you guys, I haven’t been makeup shopping for a week now, but I recently got this cute mug from Starbucks, which I am absolutely obsessed with.

Image

Loving my hot green tee 🙂

Oh, and you guys can see my Sephora clear makeup bag, Sephora lipstick, Vivienne Sabo lip gloss, Urban Decay De Slick setting spray and my favourite Neutrogena lip balm.

I also got something special for my GIVEAWAY, which I’m going to tell you in my next post.

Hugs&kisses
