Sparkly toes ❤

Hey my beauties! Are you all getting ready for New Years? I bet you are! I just wanted to share a little New Years special with you today.

This afternoon I was out at the shopping center and found these gorgeous I bar sparkle black pointed heels from Zara! They are so pretty I had to get a pair. The good thing about them is that they're not TOO sparkly so I can also wear them on a night out with friends for dinner or drinks and not only for special events such as Christmas and new year's eve. A very elegant pair of heels.

I'm actually a size 37eu, 6.5us, 4 - 4.5 uk but I had to get one size smaller because there was quite a gap once on.

If you love these babies you can find them in Zara for 76,89€!!

Happy shopping girls!

Mum do you have some cream...my hands are so dry! ❤

Do your hands get really dry in winter? Mine do and I just hate the feeling of dry hands. Not to add that not only my hands dry out but my face too. This is why I've created this post just for you. I will be sharing my favorite moisturizers and hand creams that I use daily throughout the dry cold winter.

Now I know that this brand is french (founded and created in France) and I think it only sells in Europe, so I don't know if any of my bloggers from the US can find this brand there... I don't recollect in seeing any when I was over but if not you can always order online. My magical wonder is L'OCCITANE.

L'occitane uses natural ingredients, comes in many different perfumes and not only do they make hand creams, but they also produce body creams, hair products, soaps, bath products, face masks and care (hydration), lip balms, perfume, after shave for men and moisturizing creams. They basically have everything in that direction.

Get ready with me - my daily makeup routine ❤

Hey girls, so today I thought I would let you in on my Daily makeup routine in a video! This is my first tutorial video, I hate my voice so I played music and guided you through the whole video with small captions!

In this video I'm using BareMineral 9 piece starter kit and Naked 3. 

Here are a few pictures of the eyeshadows I used. My camera wasn't too good so you can't really see clearly so I thought I would clarify things the easy way :)

If you have any questions, just ask in the comments below or contact me here.

2013 - FACT OF THE YEAR - #selfie2013

Hey girls, so I know this post is totally irrelevant to my blog, but I just thought I would share this with you all.

As you all know, smartphones play a huge role in our lives now. People seem to not be able to detach themselves from their phones. Why? That's all because our small little phones can let us do so much: connect with friends and relatives half way around the world, share pictures, read the news, listen to music and so much more. I won't keep on writing what our smartphones can do otherwise I'll be here forever!
The point is, we can do things with our phones we weren't able to 5 to 10 years ago! When I was younger I didn't have a smartphone, my first mobile phone didn't even have a camera and it was in black and white! I went outside to play with friends, I didn't stay in all day on facebook or instagram. Everything is changing each day and I honestly don't want to know how everything will be like in 20 years. It's kind of scary if you ask me.

December Jewelry Box ❤

Girls, today i'll be sharing my bling with you! I love jewelry, I love everything that shines and catches my attention. I also love pastel colored jewelry but that's not what I have in line for you today. Scroll down to enter my December jewelry box and discover my day time jewelry to glam bam night time party bling!

1. Beautiful diamond panel - mirror effect - from Iam - Party time
I love this necklace this adds the little touch your LBD needs on a night out. This is perfect for any plain top you're going to wear and where a little bling is needed.

#howto - Anne Touraine - silk scarf ❤

Girls, here's a first post on one of my Christmas presents. A wonderful gift from my mum.

It's Anne Touraine Paris 100% french silk scarf fabricated in France of course. My favorite was this baby pink colored one with Paris's most famous monuments on it. It is GORGEOUS. I am in love with this scarf and I just can't stop wearing it.

In this post, I will be showing and explaining the many different ways you can wear a 70x70 (27x27inch) or 90x90(36x36inch) square scarf.

Hello my beauties. This post will be a small picture tutorial on a naked cat-eye eye makeup. I've created this look just because I love having natural eye shadow on but also because I like a natural look that shows I still have something on. Black is just a little to hard looking for during the day so I'll be using lighter naked shades.

This is a good look for small almond shaped eyes like me it will really help elongate the eyes and widen them a little.

Superstar hair ❤

Hello my lovelies, first of all I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful day, received beautiful gifts and that your desires were fulfilled. I know mine were! My boyfriend bought us a trip to Ireland, I just can't wait. Irish coffee and Guinness here we come :)

Anyways back to blogging girls. Today's post will be a review on a little, magical lotion that transforms your hair into a superstar blow dry! Have any of you guessed what it could be? No? OK and if I said: Bedhead? Yes? You guessed it, it's TIGI bedhead's superstar blow dry lotion for massive thick hair!

Are you an angel? ❤

You've always dreamed of flawless, poreless, glowing, radiant skin? You have but you don't know how to fulfill your desire? The flawless fairy is here, with great news and a great product just for you! Soon you'll be glowing down the city streets and everyone will be blinded by your beauty with POREfessional by Benefit.


Hello my lovelies, the title of this post says it all, yes that's right girls I finally got the naked 3 palette and I'm in love with it!

As a beauty blogger I am entitled to say that I have the Naked palette, Naked basic palette, I don't have the Naked 2 ( I'll explain why) and I now have Naked 3.

Bat away with big, long curls ❤

All you need to do is bat your lashes and men will be down at your feet in a heart beat. Yes it is possible with Urban Decay's Super Curling mascara.

I discovered this beauty when I was in sephora getting my eyeshadow done and the cosmetician used this mascara. I was amazed of how my lashes looked big and long all while staying thin at the same time. I don't really like it when my lashes are thick, it just looks like you've put a ton on and too doll like. My eyes get lost in kilos of mascara! I like to keep them minimal but with long big lashes and a natural enough look.

My new rave ❤

Hello my lovelies! I have great news, well maybe not for you, but for me! I finally found a new, next perfume buy. I'm someone who likes to have different perfumes... And so I like having quite a few so I'm able to change.. Like seasons :)

So you're probably all wondering which one it is... At first I was into Ellie saab's perfume, but it wasn't a MUST, then I had a few testers of flower bomb, but that wasn't a MUST either. I didn't fall head over heels for it.

Most of you probably don't do this, but from now on, you'll probably start... What is it you ask?
Why, it's cleaning your makeup brushes! Yes you need to give them a bath at least once a week!
If you take good care of them, trust me they'll take care of you and your skin. Washing your brushes weekly will prevent shredding and keep them smooth and soft. ( This is a very important procedure, so please don't ignore it!)

To give your brushes a bubble bath you will need the following items: ...

I've been tagged!! The Liebster award!

Ok girls, so this post will be a little different to my usual posts that's because i've been nominated for the liebster award by Laura Ann.

With this tag, you're meant to:
- List 11 random facts about yourself.
- Answer the 11 questions provided by the blogger who nominated you.
-Choose 11 more nominees and ask them eleven questions (they must have 200 followers or less)- and obviously let them know they have been nominated!

So here we go... 11 random facts about myself:
  1. I play in a girls soccer team - I used to play in my country's national team
  2. I'm studying to become a dentist and yes I know people will hate my guts
  3. I can be quite sensitive and emotional (but friends say i'm a very strong person)
  4. I passed my driving test before my brother (he is older than me)
  5. I've lost a very close person in my life at the age of 18 - overcome shock and grief
  6. I love playing with my ears when they're cold
  7. I talk to myself at times 
  8. I'm actually very shy sometimes
  9. I hate the sound of my own voice hence no youtube videos! (cringe)
  10. I actually can't wait to become a mother of hopefully three children
  11. I crave chocolate... a lot!!

Let's go into Lush! The candy shop? No it's cosmetics ❤

Two words: LUSH LOVER!! The moment I first walked in the store I was love struck! Like love at first sight. A mix of aromas filling the room, colorful candy looking soap bars and pots! Oh i'm just so excited talking about it :)

Were you someone who always thought at first that it was some kind of food store? because I did until one day I had a closer look! I couldn't believe my eyes, it was like walking on clouds and you could actually get candy to eat in the store among the soaps, at first I wasn't sure what was candy and what wasn't.

My first buy from Lush was a lip scrub called ''lèvres de fée''  in french (bubblegum in English). I still have it now and it lasts forever. It's such an intelligent invention, yeah body scrubs but who would of thought of a lip scrub? It's just THE perfect beauty product for me. I tend to nibble at my lips when they're dry and always end up ripping the skin off which is a horrible horrible habit I know. But thanks to lush's lip scrub, I quickly apply this to my lips, rub with my finger if they're really chapped or just rub my lips together and apply a lip balm. The good thing about this scrub is that you can lick it and it tastes delicious! (it's made of sugar and flavoring).

My little piece of crazy happiness ❤

My beauties, this post is a little different to the others and a bit off topic but I just think I would share my little wonder with you and I also think if you're looking for something new and fun - this little toy is the best thing for you (that's if you love photography of course). The fujifilm instax mini 8 in pink is one of my highlights of the year!

I bought this little beauty on amazon for not too expensive actually, I got it for 60£. I heard in some shops they sell it for over a 100£ so you definitely don't want to do that. Amazon is the best place to get it for cheaper and I got a gift bundle for 40 shots for 10£ more!

 A few pictures of the unboxing of my baby toy camera.

This camera is amazing. I've always wanted a camera like this, when I was younger I just thought it was so cool to take a picture and then it would come out instantly... now I own one :) these are so awesome they're so old school and one day when I show my kids, it probably won't even exist anymore with all these new high tech digital touch camera etc etc!
This is great when you're with friends, snap a few memorable photos, at the beach, a gorgeous sunset, a cute selfie with you're other half. My friends just can't keep they're hands off it, I keep telling them to get their own.. Yes meany but here's why, the films of the camera are pretty pricey in stores but you can get them for less on amazon! 
If you have a friend who loves taking pics I'm sure they would be more than glad to get this little toy as a gift! 

This post was just a quick short one, I don't want to blabber on because I could. I'm happy to share this with you and I hope this motivated you to buy one, if you don't have one, get one! You won't be disappointed :)

PS. I'll put up a few shots as soon as I get some!

my December party wardrobe ❤

Ready to party this December? I bet you are with Christmas and the New Year approaching as we speak, I'm getting my glam ready to rock the winter nights!

I have quite a couple of party dresses lined up in my closet ready to be worn and shown off.. the hard part is, which ones to wear?
First of all I think you girls should meet the dresses and heels, then let me know what you think... deal?! DEAL!

First off, I have this gorgeous all black sequin quarter sleeve mini dress from miss guided. It's a nice tight fit. I bought this early on this year or even last year at this time precisely, so i'm not sure if they still sell this dress, but i'm guessing they probably do! I mean come on, you can never get enough of all sequin dresses! I bought this dress for 30 euros.

Next I have this mind blowing sexy mesh dress at the front and open cradle back behind. Again, this dress is a nice tight fit, I nearly always go for tight fitted/bodycon dresses (I don't seem to suit flow-y dress because i'm quite thin).

 I bought this dress recently on lulus. My absolute favorite site - it has tones of dresses and gorgeous heels! This site requires a little visit! ;) I think I bought this dress for about 30-40$

I also have this chic tight cradle back red dress that I actually just got last week in the post! I'm so in love with this dress and I love red dresses, to be honest this is my first red dress! I'm actually saving this dress for a wedding next summer, but i'm wondering if I could already wear it before hand for Christmas? Anyways, I got this dress on tobis and just like lulus this site has thousands and thousands of dresses! I got 50% off my first buy on this dress and got it for 26$ !! Red seems to be the new craze at the moment so if you have nothing red I suggest buying a cute pair of red heels or a sexy elegant red dress. I recently bought myself a pair of red heels from miss guided for around 20 euros which isn't pricey at all and they are gorgeous!

I have a quite a selection to chose from for my heels to go with these dresses... I'm actually not too sure though which ones to wear due to the extremely cold weather here. But I think for a few freezing minutes outside it will definitely be worth the head turning indoors!

I have a high pair of peep toe black heels (1), strappy black high heels (2), red sandal heels (3) and black booties (4).


So that's all for now girls. I hope you enjoyed reading this post and that you've found something on the sites I've shared with you :) Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
