Before I dig into the Autumn collections and bid summer farewell, I have one last summery post for you. They have been around since the beginning of the year and you might’ve seen them pop up in some of my posts already. Now the time has come for them to star in a post of their own.. of course I’m talking about the L’Oréal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lipsticks! Now 2014 has been a really good year when it comes to … Continue reading
Let me introduce you to some of the (many) lippies I picked up during my stay in New York; the Maybelline Color Whispers.
I’m back with another seasonal beauty edit. At the beginning of summer I went trough my stash and picked some products that would fit the season the best and this is what came out of it.

Oils can attract dirt like no other and … Continue reading
Nothing makes your skin look & feel more radiant and smooth like a good scrub. It has become my favourite part of bath time recently and a lot has to do with the Braun Silk épil 7 with brush head I got a while ago.
During Summer I often find myself more attracted to lighter and shinier formulas like coloured balms and lip glosses. They’re a really nice way to add some subtle colour to the lips without that boldness of an opaque lipstick.
