Even though I don’t carry a lot of stuff with me on a daily basis I wanted to show you my everyday handbag and what’s in it.
First of all my handbag is from Rebecca Minkoff and it’s a Mini M.A.C in the colour Emerald Green I think. I love love love this bag and for a person like me who doesn’t carry lots of stuff around and who most importantly doesn’t want to … it’s the perfect size handbag. The quality is really nice and even after having it for almost a year now it still looks pretty new.
Second of all I want to show you what’s in the actual bag but first you need to know that I do not carry makeup and this and that in my handbag for me I like to just have the essentials for me personally with me. I’m not able to leave the house without headphones so I always bring my Philips (SHQ 1200) headphones with me. Also in my bag who would’ve thought is my wallet, well it’s actually a little wristlet itself but I love to use it as my wallet and it’s from Fossil. My only beauty products are a Babylips in Berry Crush and a NYX Buttergloss in Peach Cobbler (Check out my Top 5 Lipstick Picks for Spring). Last but not least I always have my KikkiK Diary with me which I mentioned in my February Favorites .
That’s all I carry around with me I hope you liked this post and I’ll be back with a new blog post on Wednesday the 19th of March.
Lots of love xx
the feather post
Today something a bit different. I wanted to do a Tag which is usually a YouTube thing to do but I love them and I’m sure they are not just fun to watch but also to read ;).
1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I’d rather lose all my palettes and eyeshadows because mascara and lipsticks are just much more important to me.
2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
I’d rather never be able to cut them again because I could always braid it or make it in a bun even if it’s long but chopping it all NO WAY.
3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
Coral cheek because it just suits my skintone better :).
4.) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Definitely clothes because I wouldn’t know what makeup to buy for 1000$ dollars and having too many makeup items makes you not even use them.
5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Probably lipstick as an eyeliner a pop of colour could maybe even look good in spring/summer but a black or brown lip probably not.
6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Sephora because I like to have different brands and not just one.
7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
One eyeshadow color. I could probably live with a natural brown eyeshadow because I don’t really use anything else on my eyelids anyways.
8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Summer clothes in winter because I could always wear a summer dress with tights and a scarf but sweating in the sun with a jumper on no thanks.
9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
Dark nails, I love dark red or black nail polish on me it just compliments my skin tone and goes with everything.
10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
I would rather give up my favourite eye product because I need lip balm and I just wouldn’t know what to do without it.
11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
Ponytail because I love how the hair swings from one side to the other when walking (… weiiiiird, sorry)
12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
I don’t use lipgloss as much so I’d rather never be able to use lipgloss anymore.
13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?
OMG this is such a hard question… but I would probably go for the sharpie and use a brown one so it doesn’t look super crazy.
14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
I’d rather live without makeup because I’m just obsessed with nail polish :).
If you’ve come that far congratulations and I hope that even though this post is a bit different you still like it.
Lots of love xx
For some weird reason February was the month of nudeness for me.
Not that I ran around naked 😉 I just didn’t really wear make up at all. That second month of the year was more like a cleansing month for my skin. Not wearing makeup at all… that means no mascara no bb creams nothing … really made my skin look healthy and glowing again. My February Favorites will therefore consist of more skincare products than makeup. I’ll also include my favorite scent of the month, movie, nail polish and other cool things.
Formula 10.0.6 – Three Times Sublime
This 3 in 1 Wash + Scrub + Mask has been my best friend for a very long time when it comes to exfoliating my skin. Once a week I use it as a mask and let it sit on my skin for around 10-15 minutes then wash it off. Other than that I use it as a daily face wash when I’m in the shower to get rid of dirt and dead skin cells (it makes my skin so smooth and blackhead free). It does have little exfoliating pearls in it so if your skin is “super sensitive” it might not be something for you. The smell of it is also very refreshing and good to use in the morning for a little boost. Besides that it’s a really affordable product that lasts for a long time.
Indeed Laboratories – Hydraluron
I’ve never been a big fan of serums but this one is literally amazing. I repurchased Hydraluron 3x now and it’s worth every cent. For some reason my skin feels incredibly youthful and smooth after applying it and I love the fact that it absorbs into my skin super fast (literally in 3 seconds). It amazes how the product just seems to disappear on my skin leaving it refreshed and bright.
La Roche-Posay – Effaclar Duo
Even though this product is supposed to be used by people with acne prone skin I still love it. I have combination skin, fairly clean with the odd pimple every now and then but I still feel like using this product makes my skin just flawless. At times where my skin is really good I just use it as spot treatment at other times I use it all over the face. I’ve been loving this product for probably around 6-7 years now. It is not the cheapest product but if you tend to have breakouts or have acne give it a try it really worked wonders in my teenage years.
The Body Shop Lip Butter – Chocomania
My lips have been really dry this month so I decided to try out this lip product. I always liked their Body Butters so I thought why not give the Lip Butters a try. OMG this little chocolate pot saved my lips this month. Before I go to bed I put on a quite big amount of it hoping that it gets absorbed into my lips overnight making them feel super nice and smooth … and that’s exactly what that products does.
Lush – Dream Cream
I’ve used this product on my elbows and my legs manly because it is a really rich and thick moisturizer. It’s ideal for winter I think and if you have really really dry skin you might also be able to use it all over your body. It smells simply amazing but I can’t really describe the scent as with most lush products I own.
The Body Shop Shower Gel – Cranberry Joy
This literally is a “Joy” to use. The scent of this rather pricy but totally worth it shower gel is really comforting. Especially in winter time I like that cranberry/fruity scent.I also think that it really nurishes my skin and leaves it super clean and fresh for the day. As far as I know you could only get this shower gel with the 2013 Christmas stuff at The Body Shop but there other scents are just as amazing.
Soap & Glory – Hand Food
Trying this out for the first time made me feel like I’m in heaven. I love the kind of thick texture that absorbs rather quickly into skin (doesn’t leave you with super greasy hands for hours). For me it just does the job, it smells divine, it’s very moisturizing and it’s not super expensive. I used to use the l’occitane hand creams and absolutely loved them but after a while they became too expensive considering how much hand cream I use ;). After trying out this product I’m sure I’ll go get some other Soap & Glory products, any recommendations?
Vera Wang – Princess
This beautiful perfume has been with me for a while now and it seems to catch my attention every spring/autumn. For some reason to me it’s the perfect scent in the mild months. It’s not too heavy not too light, not too florally not too fruity. I don’t know how to describe it, it’s just the most beautiful everyday scent that makes you feel like a princess – well at least for a little moment.
Sinful Colors – 960 Envy
I already mentioned this colour in my Top 5 Nail Polish Picks Spring 2014 blog post (including swatches) so go check that out if you’re interested. Love the colour and especially the lasting power. Usually nail polish chips off after 2-3 days on me but for some strange reason this one stays on for over 5 days without any chipping. It’s really cheap and Sinful Colors has an amazing colour selection and I’ll definitely try out some of the other colours.
Kikki K Diary
My Kikki K Diary is my daily companion and I take it with me everywhere I go. I love that it’s compact but you still get a lot of space to write down stuff you need to do or remember everyday. The design is really cool and fun and I also got a little notebook and some stickers with it. It’s just a super cool diary for school, uni, work or whatever your life holds.
M83 – “Midnight City”
As this is my first blog post ever I thought I’d talk about what my plans for this blog are.
I want this to be an interactive blog where not only me but also you can decide what I’ll post next. My interests are lifestyle, fashion, makeup, cooking, music and all that kind of stuff (the most exciting interests ever ;D) but if you are curious about specific topic just tell me and I’ll work on it and do my research.
I wanted to start a blog ages ago but never had the guts to do it… I don’t know why but today I woke up and decided that I’m super ready and motivated and that I really want to this. I want to meet new people and experience myself what’s so interesting about the blogger world.
If there’s anything you want to ask me go ahead 😀 I’ll work on my first “real” blog post now which will be my nail polish picks for spring 2014.
Lots of love xx
