Fashion: Less is more

Hello Sweethearts,

for todays article I have a very cute and simple outfit. This is one of my new favourite outfits on a lazy day, when I still want to look fabulous.

Personal update:
For those wondering why I haven't posted any articles in a few weeks. That's because I organized a whole party week at my sorority. & now I'm between exams. So that's basically it, I was super busy & still am super busy but I do want to start blogging more.

The peach top with the lace collar is from Forever21. The black tank top under need is from H&M. The black leggings are from Zara. And the black ballerina shoes with flower detail are from Primark.

Unboxing: the Pretty box of September

Hello Sweethearts,

today I'm going to unbox the Pretty box of September. This is going to be a small and relaxed post. If you know me you know that I like to unbox my boxes with a cup tea in bed. My little spoil moment of the month.



The first product in the box is the Benefit cosmetics it's potent! eye cream. This cream helps freshen up the eyes and getting rid lines.

This is a sample size & costs €9.99.


The second item is the So susan cosmetics dual brow powder. I was a bit disappointed when I saw this products since I already received this one in another beauty box a couple of months ago. & I want my boxes to share the newest products not the old ones. Besides that I thought it would have been nice to receive another product of this brand. If you want to read what I wrote about this product when I received it for the first time than click here.

This is a full size product and costs €13.99.

The third  item is the L'orĂ©al paris color Richie nail art. These nail stickers are special because they have a 2d and 3d effect.

This product is full size & costs €8.49.

Lip product Tuesday: Essence lipsticks in Adorable matt!, I am yours!, I love cake pop & Matt wanted!

Hello Sweethearts,

this article was officially suppose to go up on my blog yesterday but because of some reasons it took till Wednesday to go up. Anyway I'm going to share my opinion and the swatches of the new Essence lipsticks in the colours 14 adorable matt!, 16 I am yours!, 17 I love cake pop & 18 matt wanted!.

(From left to right:) the first one is 14 adorable matt!, the second 16 I am yours!, the third 17 I love cake pop & the fourth  18 matt wanted!.

Essence about this product:
"longlasting love… you simply have to fall in love with the longlasting lipsticks by essence. the lipsticks provide your lips with intensive color for several hours without drying them out. you’re sure to find whatever you’re looking for – from bright pink to intensive red and chilled-out berry to subtle nude shades. the essence logo on the texture and the matt, black packaging with a ring of color to match the actual color of the lipstick are true eye-catchers!"

My opinion is that they're gorgeous colours vary from a true pink to a true red and everything in between. I do find them a having a true (not so nice) lipstick smell, which I'm not use to since the previous collection didn't have that smell.
My favourites from these four are I love cake pop because it's a bright pink yet it's still very wearable for an everyday look. & my second favourite is Matt wanted! because it's perfect for fall.

Essence new product fall / winter haul 2014 part 2

Hello Sweethearts,

Essence recently released their new product line for autumn / fall / winter 2014.
The first part was released in August, to read that haul click here.
The second part was released a week ago. Of course I already bought a big part at that moment. But I kind of doubted if I should wait with the haul till I got everything I wanted from the new line. So basically that's what I did. I waited and completed shopping yesterday. I finally got everything I wanted. Which was harder than I'm used to since it kept being sold out or not available  yet at other locations.
Anyway let's check out what I got!!!

I like start with a picture showing what I got for this haul but a few products are missing since I bought them later && it would have taken a couple days before I could retake the picture. This is why I decided to just leave it this way. Since I want this haul up as soon as possible!

So the first thing I obvious bought as soon as I saw it, just to have it & because it looks like it could be a Benefit cosmetics product, is the How to make nude eyes make - up box.  I got it for €5.99. & I can't wait to show the products pictures of this product it's sooo nice!
The second thing I bought was the Liquid ink high shine eyeliner and matt eyeliner for €2.89.
I also got the say NO to dark circles colour correcting concealer for €1.99.
&& the effect eye pencil in the colour 01 Silver surfer for €1.99.

I also needed to have the 2 in 1 lash and brow comb for €1.89.

So for the lips I got a lot more. I also got a lip cream from the Hello Autumn collection in the colour 01 beauty-FALL red for €1.99.

From the new collection I got the lipsticks in the colours 14 adorable matt!, 16 I am yours!, 17 I love cake pop & 18 matt wanted! for €2.39.
& I got the lipliner in 13 transparent for €0.99.
I also got the XXXL shine lipgloss in the colour 33 fabulous fuchsia for €1.89.

&& when I went back to complete my collection I also bought the Studio nails nail & cuticle brush for €1.29.
The say NO to redness colour correcting concealer for €1.99.
&& the lipliner in 15 honey berry for €0.99. I'm still considering to also buy the lipliner is 14 femme fatale but I first want to see the colour in person.

What's your favourite product of Essence new collection?
