Nail Polish Heaven

Hello lovelies,

It's been a while, but here I am. How do you like the new banner? I think it's finally what I wanted.

But now on to this post. Since we moved into our new/old home we've been renovating like crazy. It's not completely by choice, a house built in the 30's is bound to need more than a fresh coat of paint after 70 years.

So even if we've moved in over a year ago, the wall I needed for my nail polish heaven was only finished a couple of weeks ago.

But without further ado here it is and it is PERFECT.


This time I sorted them by brand, everything else was too complicated. *gg*





It even has its own light!


Isn't it perfect?! I absolutely love it, the only "problem" is that it's already full.. *gg* My dad made it for me and I hope he will do one more. :-)

What do you think? Isn't it the greatest thing ever built?

Love,
Valerie

MAC Viva Glam Miley


I'm sure you've all heard of it, but I want to post it as well. :) Miley Cyrus will be the new spokesperson for MAC's Viva Glam beginning next March. 

This girl truly changed herself. There was some stuff I wasn't a fan of, the drugs for example, but it's something to successfully get rid of your old image. I like her new look and the new album is nice as well. But back to the make up! *gg*


This lipstick will definitely find a new home! :)


What do you think about those two? They will be fun for sure!

Love,
Valerie

The new Glossybox is here!!

It always feels a little like christmas when the Glossybox arrives. Who doesn't love a package knowing there's beauty stuff inside. *gg*




A nice mix..


Let's take a closer look:

Love me Green face peeling:


Daidermine lifting serum:


Labello blueberry lip butter:


Gliss Kur hyaluron hair serum:


Nicka K New York Colorluxe blush:




It was almost impossible to get colour out of that spongy thing so I opened it and look at that pretty, fresh rose color!



Overall, I think it's a pretty neat box. :-) 
  • I won't be able to use the face peeling, since my skin is too sensitive, especially in fall and winter, but for most this might be useful. 
  • The Diadermine serum is cool as well, serums are always good. This is supposed for ladies 30 and over, but personally I think you should start with anti age care when you're 25. It's easier to prevent than to get rid of wrinkles. 
  • Gliss Kurs hair serum is something I definitely will use. I love hair serums!
  • The lip butter from Labello is the item I'll definitely avoid. Labello is the lip care brand that does nothing but get your lips addicted to the product. You use and use it and it does nothing.
  • Last, but not least the blush. While I wasn't impressed with it with the sponge on I was pleasently surprised by it when I saw and swatched the product directly.
This is definitely one of the good boxes. :) What do you think? Like it?

Love,
Valerie

Lazy Sunday

I didn't have time for a new make up post, so I thought I just share you the cutest pet video ever - starring my two darlings. That is true love!

video

They are soo adorable. Today's weather is rather dull, but a few days ago the sunlight turned the fields into the most beautiful scenery.






I hope you have a lovely Sunday and didn't forget to adjust the clocks. Let's gather some strength for the new week.

Love,
Valerie

Sothys One Night in Paris


A little while back I had the pleasure to get the Fall/Winter collection from Sothys and now I have finally time to review and share the products with you. :)

It's one hell of a classy collection. Look at those pretty things and the lovely packaging - velvet!



Let's take a closer look..


two nail polishes in rouge nuit and beige-doux

Here come the shadows!


reflect nocturne


taupe-intemporel


A beautiful blush - nuit orangée


the shimmer powder "poussière d'or" in the most beautiful packaging


two cute lipsticks in beige and orange



It's swatch-time!

eyeshadows "taupe-intemporel" and "reflect nocturne"


blush "nuit orangée" and lipsticks "orange", "beige"



in sunlight:


All the products have great colour payoff and the lipsticks have a nice scent without being overpowering. It's an awesome collection thoroughly.

I also did a look with the collection. Perfect for fall..



The lipstick is a mix between the two colours. I love it.


The limited edition is available in spas and beauty institutes. You can find out where to get it at www.sothys.com

Have you already made peace with Fall? I still feel a bit annoyed by it. *gg*  The lovely weather is a good consolation though:


Love,
Valerie

My awesome London Haul!

This is way overdue, but here's my London haul. The time to be jealous would be now. ;-)

Real Technique brushes - Nic's Picks are especially cool. I got it thanks to pre-ordering. I didn't see that set in stores once.


Revolution Iconic palettes. I stood ages in front of their display. I could have bought all palettes. 



Iconic 2


Iconic 3


Sleeeeek palettes:


Arabian Nights


Garden of Eden


GOSH New York palette




Beautiful lashes, an incredible long lasting eyeshadow pencil from Collection and an I love Make Up blush.


Last but not least the gorgeous Illamasqua polish from their Once collection.



What do you think? Awesome haul isn't it? I'm really happy with those products. Reviews will follow. :)

Love,
Valerie
