Gift Guide


Hey Dolls!

As you may know I'm really busy with Uni and haven't posted a lot of Outfit posts this last couple of weeks. I really wanted to write something fashion related and have come up with the idea of writing a “Valentines Gift Guide”. I know there is still time until Valentines Day, but sometimes it's nice to be prepared ahead of time.You know, hint a little present or buy it for yourself. I am a strong believer in buying gifts for myself, which is actually just a way of justifying the purchase.

While I was searching for ideas I came across a Clothing Site called Street One. After browsing for a while it occurred to me : I could use something for every category.
So let's begin.

First of all : for all the casual and chic girls out there, they have some awesome pullovers. My top two favourites are the one with the “Rock Couture” writing on it and a duo tone one, that looks like a Jacket. I like pullovers with writing on it, because they are comfy yet more fun than a plain knit sweatshirt.

Top 5 Nail Polishes

Hello my beautiful Dolls!

Since this month is turning into a beauty month, I want to share with you my top 5 nail polishes. These are my most loved colours, that I own at the moment. I love nail polishes and doing my manicure, so naturally I own quite a few colours.

I remember doing my nails while I was in school and sharing polishes with my girl friends. At that time I didn't have a mini collection of my own, since my mother already owned the most gorgeous colours you could want. However, since I moved to Austria I slowly started my "nail polish collection". I don't really know if it's appropriate to call it a "collection", at which number does it start being one?

Anyway... these are the nail polishes and brands of nail polish that I enjoy the most. I do have my eyes on some new colours, but I don't think my top 5 will be easy to dethrone.

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.

Mini Haul : Beauty Edition

Hi Dolls!

As promised here is another mini haul. I have mentioned this before, but I lost my limited edition MAC lipstick in Viva Glam Lady Gaga, which was a barbie pink colour. Of course I wanted to purchase something to replace that one, since it was favourite. I heard some beauty bloggers talk about the Lime Crime lipsticks and everyone seemed to have only good things to say.

I bought a Barbie pink colour, which is called Great Pink Planet, and a pink-coraly-kind of neon colour, Geradium. Which I wore in yesterdays Get ready with me post. I do plan on writing a review on this lipsticks, so look forward to that.

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.

FOTD : Get ready with me

Hey Dolls!

Todays post will be a "Face of the day : Get ready with me". This time I took pictures step by step while I was doing my make-up. I have to admit it was kind of awkward doing my make-up while taking "multi-shots" with the camera, but I think the results are all that matter.

This is my "every day" make-up, for the days that I actually wear it. The lip colour always differs, but for the face and eyes ... this is it. On an every day basis I don't really take the time to create some wonderful and creative eye look, I just use a champagne colour all over the lid and a darker crease colour for some definition.

I won't reveal the lipstick name in todays post, but stay tuned tomorrow for another mini-haul. However, I will say that as a first impression this lipstick in awesome.

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses!

Small update : I have been busy with university and that's why I haven't posted anything. I thought that instead of ignoring my blog any further, I will at least write beauty posts. As for any outfit posts... I can't promise anything. Also I have a surprise for the month of February planed, something unusual for my blog. I'm really excited about that.

Inspirational Quotes

Hi Dolls!

Today is a really relaxing sunday for me and I decided to write a post that contains some of the quotes I get inspired by. I love checking inspirational quotes or motivational quotes on Pinterest, especially when I'm having a lounging day.

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.

PS: Always smile and be kind to everyone, be the kind of person you would love to meet.

Top 5 of 2013

Hey Dolls!

Let's talk about my top 5 beauty products of 2013, excluding skin care items. I'm going to talk about them randomly, meaning that I love them all and all have worked really well for me.

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.

First I want to talk about my Gosh BB Cream, which I got at the beginning of summer. I gravitate towards this product more than my foundations. I don't wear make-up on an every day basis, but when I do, I use this as my foundation. It's the right colour, has a nice creamy texture and has a good lasting power.

This next item I had since february last year, so this shows how good it is. The EOS Lip balms are incredible, they are so moisturising and really leave your lips hydrated. I use it only at night, since it's so  creamy and during the day I use a lighter one. However in the colder months I sometime use it also during the day, if my lips get dry or if I will apply a drying lipstick.

Since we're talking about lips, let's include my favourite lipstick of 2013. This was a hard one, as you may know I love lipsticks. Sadly I lost mine in Munich, but the Viva Glam Lady Gaga lipstick from MAC was my most loved one this year. It was a barbie pink colour, which I really like and goes so well with my fair skin tone. I'm really bummed out that I lost it, it was  limited edition so I can't repurchase the exact same one. I used it as my new years eve lipstick in Munich and my Naked 3 palette for the eye make-up, the two made a really nice pair.

My favourite blush this year was The Body Shop Bubblegum, it's as you might think another barbie pink colour. It's not powdery, has good pigmentation and looks lovely on the skin.

The last item to make the cut for the top 5 this year, is a nail polish. Actually a top coat. I couldn't choose a nail polish, even though I wear them all year long. The colours that I love change based on my mood. However this top coat I have been using every time I paint my nails since February last year, so it's clearly a winner. Without further ado I present to you the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat.

These are my top 5 of 2013.
Wishing you all the best in the new year.

Pink and Girly

Hey Dolls!

I had a very pink and girly kind of day yesterday, so I wanted to share my outfit with you. Since the weather outside is horrifying, we took the pictures inside the university.

It's a girly outfit for the colder months, as you may know by now I like my studs, so when I saw these Mango Jeans I fell for them. They are jeans with studs, I mean "YES, please."

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.

Mini-Haul

Hi Dolls!

Because apparently I lack control, today I come to you with another beauty mini-haul. In my defence the Naked 3 was a christmas gift, which was very considerate and nice. As you may know I was very happy the Naked 3 was coming out and planed getting my hands on it. I own the Naked 1 and I adore it, the formulation is great : pigmented, creamy and lovely colours.

The MAC pro longwear concealer has been raved about a lot this past year, many beauty bloggers consider it a holy grail item. This is the reason I wanted to try it out and since MAC does make a light enough shade for me, this item is halfway into being my holy grail concealer. I'll let you know after I test it more.

The nail polish I picked up some time ago, but didn't share it with you so I figured why not. I'm in love with the sand nail polishes from OPI, thus I got my hands on another one. Because like I said I lack some control, I already have my eyes on another sand polish.

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.

New Year Resolutions

Hey Dolls!

As promised today I'm sharing with you my new year resolutions. They aren't many and I try to keep them as realistically as possible. I think they are things that are achievable, for me at least.

The first one is a continuation of last year, to get more healthy. I think I did a really good job with this resolution last year and I will like to continue it. I'm not going to be extreme and cut out the things that I enjoy eating but are bad for me, however I will minimise the portion and how often I eat them. I try to eat healthy at least 5 days a week and have a cheat day or two. This usually doesn't apply when I'm on vacation. Maybe someday I'll make a post of what I eat in a day, will see.

My next resolution goes hand in hand with the first one. I want to go more often to the gym. I have been going this past year, but not as consistent as I would like. I do not want to loose weight! I want to be fit and healthy.

As a next wish for this year, I would like to continue traveling a lot and seeing the world. I love traveling, even though being on the road is exhausting sometimes, being able to visit a new place and culture is totally worth it, in my opinion at least.

I want to post more and improve my blog, I would like to make it better and be more consistent with my posts. I'm not going to promise to post everyday, because I know it won't happen. I will however promise to try my best and get even better at it, the very least post more than I did last year.

Hope you like this rambling post.
Have a pink-tastic day!
See you soon.
Kisses.

First Post of 2014

Hi Dolls! Happy New Year!

I decided to make the first post of this year a fashion one, since this is mainly a fashion blog and write the next one about my new year resolutions.

Todays outfit combines some of my christmas presents. I adore my new faux leather leggings, these particular ones I wanted for a while and my lovely sister got them for me. They have biker inspired details on the knees, which sadly don't show up in the pictures. However, don't worry, I do plan on wearing them a lot and taking some pictures that show the details.

The boots were an unexpected, but awesome gift. I wore them a lot since I received them. They are comfy, pink and keep me warm. I mean... how could I have not fallen in love with them? I know Timberland boots aren't everyones cup of tea, but I like them and think they are practical and chic.

The whole outfit consists of blush pink colours and the faux leather pop. I wanted a girly yet edgy look and this is how it came out.

Have a pink-tastic day!
Kisses.
