In the middle of September the new mall in my town finally opened. It’s a really cute one, kept in a modern and posh style with loads of good shops and restaurants. I knew I was going to leave my hometown soon anyway, so why not doing a bit of shopping just to test out the new mall? Well, the whole thing actually turned into a huge fashion haul – the collections for autumn were amazing, it was just impossible to resist the temptation haha (you all know how it is …). So these are the things I got: First… View Post

Here I am writing a blog post after almost 18 hours of travelling and almost zero minutes of sleep. Seriously, I’m jealous of these people who can just fall asleep in an instant haha. I always bring a really comfy cushion with me and wear my comfy clothes hoping that I will fall asleep at the beginning of the flight and wake up after 10 hours feeling fresh and wide wake. Yep, that’s never really happened and probably never will. But anyway, the range of movies you can watch on long flights kind of makes up for the lack of… View Post

I’ve tested various different face primers and these are the two I liked most. I know that some people don’t use primers at all but I personally see them as quite important because they minimize pores and create a great base for applying foundation. So these are the primers I enjoyed most: 1. The Porefessional Primer by Benefit This primer really keeps what it promises. It minimizes pores and helps you achieve a flawless makeup look. The Porefessional Primer is an oil-free product and contains a light brown texture that adapts well to your skin. I really like to use… View Post

I thought I might share one of my grandma’s recipes with you. She makes the best cake in the world and this is the one I used to have for my birthday when I was a kid. I still love it a lot – it’s a very fluffy cake with tiny bits of chocolate in it. It’s also extremely easy to make and you don’t need many ingredients. I definitely recommend trying it out, it tastes amazing. Have fun baking! x List of ingredients: 200g butter 100g sugar 100g powder sugar 1 package of vanilla sugar 4 eggs a pinch… View Post

As I’ve already mentioned, autumn is my favourite season of the year. One thing I particularly like about it is that you can experiment a lot when it comes to fashion. Plus I’m a person that loves cardigans and jackets so I clearly prefer autumn fashion to summer fashion. Below you can see my favourite looks for this season. The first look is quite classy and can be worn for any occasion. I really love dressing in black and grey but I usually like to add at least a tiny bit of colour to it- that’s why I went for… View Post

I can’t believe that summer is over and that my favourite season of the year is about to begin. So much has happened during the last few months, both good and bad things. It’s sometimes hard to keep up with all the recent changes and even though there were certainly ups and downs, I feel like summer 2014 has been one of the best ones of my entire life. I can’t believe that I’ve finally graduated from school (don’t we all feel like we would be stuck there forever?!) and that the real life is about to begin haha. But not… View Post

Finding a great present for a friend or a family member – not the easiest task. I’m always spending days thinking about the perfect present. Here are five ideas I’ve come up with – they are really personal, cute and not too pricey. 1. A memory box A really cute idea for a friend. You just need a box and a few things that are reminders of moments you shared e.g. a face mask if you like to have pampering nights together, a film you watched together, her/his favourite sweets etc. You can wrap the box with wrapping paper or… View Post

The Urban Decay Naked palette (the first one) is definitely one of my favourite makeup products. It comes with an eye primer and an eyeshadow brush (which I always use for applying my eye makeup). The Naked Palette consists of 12 different shades of eyeshadow and what I like most about it is a) that you can use it to create a very natural but also a glamorous look b) that these shades are great to combine and c) that it’s got perfect colours for each season. I personally like to go for a very bright and shimmery look in… View Post

Here are some things I’ve been loving this month. Enjoy reading. x 1. The Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer A very affordable drugstore product. It covers blemishes very well and lasts for a very long time. I haven’t had any problems with my skin this month but I’ve travelled a lot and this concealer has really helped me to look awake all the time haha.  2. The L’Oréal Volume Supersizing Spray A great spray for adding a bit of volume to your hair. I really like to straighten my hair but I always think it just looks a bit too flat… View Post

My cousin (who also happens to be my best friend) recently turned 16 and had a birthday party with a very special touch to it. Here are some pictures I’d like to share with you. If you’re looking for ideas for your own birthday party then this could give you some inspiration – especially for the best part of every party, the food haha. Happy birthday to my lovely cousin again, you mean the world to me. x
