Party Look | Selena Gomez Smokey Eye Inspired

29 December 2013

Listens : ♪ Kanye West feat Jay Z – No Church in the Wild




Hey little criminals ♥ These past days I spent a lot of time on my tumblr. Selena Gomez is clearly one of my inspirations when it comes to fashion and makeup. When I saw this picture of her (above) I just fell in love with the look and needed to recreate it. I am not a makeup artist, I'm actually quite new at this but this is my version of Selenga Gomez's makeup look.It's a look I find very chic, glamorous and great for this season. I hope you guys'll enjoy it !

 

What I used for this look : 
 Etude House Rose Flowering Eyes
Gemey Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner


This is it for today, I hope you guys liked it. I'm sorry I didn't do any tutorial or anything but it's a basic smokey eye and I'm sure you'll find some great tutorials on youtube, where I learned everything I know. I simply wanted to share with you a cheap way to recreate such a gorgeous look. I wish you happy holidays and all the best.

Have a good evening ! x


Beauty Review | Etude House November Box

26 December 2013

Listens : ♪ Kanye West feat Jay Z – No Church in the Wild




Hello guys ! We are soon in January and I just opened my Etude House November Box. I will never say it enough, but I love this brand, the products are high quality and the packaging is quite amazing. Here are the products I received, all are great. My favourite of the box is definitely the Lip Laquer, so pigmented, the colour is gorgeous and the texture amazing. I just love how it looks like blood in the bottle ! The hand cream and the lip balm are both very moisturizing. In general I am very happy with that box and I can't wait to use all the products in my daily routine.


Etude House is a brand I really recommend, I will use these products in many makeup looks as possible and let you know about them. But so far, so good ! 


I wish you a good day xx


Giveaway | Burberry Brit Perfume

23 December 2013

Listens : ♪ Coldplay – Strawberry Swing




Hello dolls ! It has been a while since I updated my blog but with the trip back home to Ireland, enjoying being with my fiancé and the Christmas shopping, it was kind of difficult to blog. I am taking a few minutes to tell you about the Burberry Brit perfume that I got from MEDIPHARM. I had this perfume years ago, when I was still a teen. I used the entire bottle and never got the chance to purchase it again. The fragrance is very light, floral and delicate, exactly the kind of perfume I love. It's perfect for young girls and women. I also love the bottle which is so elegant and graceful, just like the perfume itself.


This is this amazing, gorgeous and lovely perfume that you will be able to win for the next two weeks. Thank you to Medipharm that allowed me to gift you that great perfume. It is one of the best ways for me to finish the year on my blog.

The giveaway is International but only within Europe (because of postage policies). I will try to organise another international giveaway for my other readers in the world, sorry guys.

Wish List #49 | New Year's Eve Edition

19 December 2013

Listens : ♪ The Weeknd – Wicked Games




Hello there ! This is my last wish list for New Year's Eve Party Looks. This is a very chic and a work appropriate outfit. I just love jumpsuits and blazers, I think they give you that instant professional and Glam look. This Royal blue is my favourite, I have a beanie with the same colour, I wear it all the time. This outfit is great with silver tones, but I guess it will depend on the colour of the blazer you pick. Also, I usually love wearing bold lips but for this one, I think that a sultry brown smoky eye will be just enough. 

This a look you can wear for a party at work, with family or even with friends.  I hope you guys enjoyed, I wish you a lovely weekend ♥


Wish List #48 | New Year's Eve Edition

17 December 2013

Listens : ♪ Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal





Hey guys ! Still in my New Year's Eve outfits ideas. Today we have something a little bit more covered, classy but yet edgy. Every girl knows that you can never go wrong with a black dress and red bold lips. Black, red and gold are perfect for the season and these items are very easy to dupe for a cheaper version. 

I decided to "grunge" this look with the wool jacket and the boots to make it a little more casual. That way, this outfit is perfect for a party with friends, family or even a romantic night out. The jacket will keep you warm, the boots will give you height but still will allow you to walk in the cold. If you want to tone it down a little more, you can add some black tights.  

So this is it for today, I am getting ready to go back to Ireland and see my fiancé, I couldn't be happier. Stay tuned for the awesome giveaway coming around Christmas.

Have a good day x


Wish List #47 | New Year's Eve Edition

14 December 2013

Listens : ♪ Ray LaMontagne – You Are The Best Thing




Hello my dears ♥ I decided to start a little series of wish list to give you some ideas for the Holiday season, more for New Year's Eve. This look is all about that gorgeous PVC skirt that we saw on Kim Kardashian a few months ago and since then I just dream to rock it ! I think I will get one myself but not right now, I already ordered enough items. 

This look is sexy, romantic and very 2014. You can obviously tone it down with a simple white top and take off the crown. That bralet is also such a gorgeous piece, I need it too ! The point here is to play with very sexy textures and cuts but still keeping it really sweet and romantic. 

I hope you guys enjoyed it, I wish you a very good weekend !

Wish List #46 | My Christmas Wish List

10 December 2013

Listens : ♪ Kanye West – Bound 2




Hi dolls ! Here is my little Christmas Wish List. I'm a student and I can't afford to get everything I want for Christmas, but hopefully, these five years of studies will turn out to be useful and I'll have an amazing job. Right now, here are the things I would love to get but I will actually wait a few months. 

I want this Nikon V1 camera so badly. Dariusz told me about it, I've been watching reviews and I think it's what I need. Getting a new camera is one of my goals for such a long time but my laptop broke in the meanwhile and then I had to move again and again. It's all about timing. 

I still need to get some last minute Christmas gifts for my family and friends, I just love buying stuff for other people. What about you ? What is the one thing you really want for Christmas except love, family and health ?

I wish you a good day ♥


OOTD | Those Bambi Eyes (Givenchy Bambi Jumper Dupe)

7 December 2013

Listens : ♪ Handbook – Been a While Since You Spoke




Hello dolls ♥ Sorry I didn't update in a long time but once again, my internet connexion is terrible and there are so many things I can't do (like skyping with my fiancé !). It's ok right now so I'm taking a minute for you guys !

The week I was in Ireland I found this adorable Bambi jumper in Primark for only 12€ ! It's a great dupe for the Givenchy Bambi Jumper and it's so comfortable. I took it back with me to France, I usually wear it with black leggings and my Dr Martens and bold red lips. For this OOTD I decided to wear it chic with my new heels from Primark as well.

Let me tell you the love I have for these shoes ! I got some black ones last summer and they are amazing so when I saw the same but in silver, my heart stopped for a second ! I wanted silver shoes for months, but it's still a strong trend and the best ones are still quite expensive. I do not like to spend too much money on shoes I know I will wear just from times to times. 15€ in Primark, they were sent from God.


Jumper : Primark/Penneys 12€
Shoes : Primark/Penneys 15€
Earrings : New Look sales
Skirt : Belfast (don't remember the shop) 6£

Sorry again I don't update much, I will try my best. Stay tuned this month because I have an amazing giveaway for you, more blog posts to come and surprises and love ! I wish you a lovely day, thanks for reading ♥



December's Mood 2013

3 December 2013

Listens : ♪ Saints of Valory – Winter Lights




Hi my darlings ♥ December, I couldn't be happier ! I can't wait to flight back to Ireland, enjoy the little gifts I did to myself (and share them with you), spend some amazing time with my dearest Dariusz and blog my hands off ! 


If in November I'm usually in a cosy mood, this December I want to try new things and finish the year properly. I will also have my birthday in January, the last one as a student. 

I also wanted to thank you for entering the giveaway. The lovely Riri is the winner. I am already working on other giveaways, I will let you know when it happens. I just wish I could send you free stuff every week !

This is it for today, I wish you a lovely day ♥



Wish List #45 | Gift Ideas For Her

30 November 2013

Listens : ♪ The Killers – Shot at The Night




Hi dolls ♥ Christmas is on its way and I couldn't be more excited about it. Here is a very simple gift list for her, you have a large range of products and prices, great for small budgets. It is for best friend, sister, cousin or any girl in general. Some people are just great with gifts, no matter how little they know the person, they will just get it right. When in another hand, there are still people that have trouble every year. If you are one of them here are my ideas. 

Nail polish : Barry M nail polishes are under 5€, they have amazing colours and textures. A nail polish is always a good little gift, just to say that you thought about her. If you don't really know the person and don't want to go wrong with the shade, go for classics like a red or a beige.

Cute earphones : You can find them anywhere on the internet and the ones from Asia are ridiculously cheap. Some are even under 3€. This is perfect for any girl of any age as long as you find the perfect ones. Some girls will prefer them chic, cute etc. The thing with earphones is that we always need some.

Perfume : This is already another budget but perfume is always a great gift. I know it is difficult to chose a fragrance for someone so go for a brand that will please the person. Even if you don't like Burberry, a girl will always be happy to have a beautiful bottle in her room. That perfume is only 25€ on the website MEDIPHARM, it is way cheaper than Sephora (74$). This perfume is affordable and will seem even more expensive than it is. Also, I used to wear my mother's and the smell is incredible, very chic and light.


• Jewellery : This is another classic. The best place is Primark, I always get my jewellery there because it's gorgeous and cheap. But Accessorize has amazing and unique pieces that will please any girl.

• MUA makeup palette : Any girl needs makeup, even the ones that don't especially enjoy it. Sooner or later you will need some for a birthday, a wedding, new year's eve etc. Why not being one that offers a perfect basic palette ? You can't go wrong with MUA amazing shades and quality eye shadows. You can do any look from day to night. If you are not sure, nude shades are always great and not scary to wear. 


So this is it for my list. Nothing too crazy, it is really to inspire some of you that struggle with finding ideas, even more when you don't know the person that well. With these ones, you can't go wrong. 

Tell me what do you want for Christmas ! 
Have a good day my little criminals ♥


My Eyebrow Routine | Products I use (Gemey Maybelline, Beauty UK, 2 True)

27 November 2013

Listens : ♪ Foster the People – Houdini




Hey dolls ! Long time I didn't post anything on the blog. Sorry but I needed some time off with my family and then my Internet connexion was getting on my nerves (still does actually). Today I wanted to share with you my eyebrow routine. This is not a tutorial because I have been doing this on a daily basis for a few weeks only and I do not consider myself qualified enough to teach anything. There are plenty of amazing tutorials on YouTube. Right now, I'd like to share the products I use and love.



This is the look I wear everyday. I did a blog post already showing thick eyebrows inspiration. I love them very large and it has been years. I'm happy that the trend is back so now I can learn many ways to achieve the looks I love. There are days when I do my brows more on the brown shades like on the pictures above (they say you have to use one or two shades lighter than your hair colour) but most of the time I just love to go for black brows. I simply use the brown shades and then, I add little touches of black matte eye shadow (go light and then build the colour).


Here are the products that I use. The beauty UK matte eye shadow palette is a very small palette that I usually take with me when I travel. You can do anything with it from eyebrows to daily look to night time looks. It's amazing and under 5€. To brush my brows and keep them in place I use a cheap transparent mascara mine is from 2True (that turned brown with the uses). It costs about 2€ and so far so good.

The Gemey BROW Drama brow mascara is the last eyebrow tool I purchased in October when I went back to Ireland. It was around 5€ and I really love it. I wish there were darker shades than "Dark Blond" because even if my hair looks brown on the pictures I actually have black hair. But I really love it, I do not regret purchasing it. It does sculpt the brows and make your hair look thicker and your brows more natural. 


So this is it for today, let me know what do you use to sculpt your brows or if you are lucky enough to skip that step ! I wish you a very good day ♥


OOTD | One million Diamond Scalp

21 November 2013

Listens : ♪ Delta Spirit – California




Hi dolls ! Last time I was in my hometown, I went shopping with my mother and I found these amazing flats in the French shop Babou. Only 6€, I got them in black and blue. I simply couldn't decide which ones I prefer the most and I actually can't wait to wear the blue ones. It was almost impossible for me to shoot this look when I was in Ireland since the weather was so terrible. Windy and rainy all the time, the days were so dark even shooting indoors was not an option. And as you can see, when the sun was out, it was so bright I couldn't see a thing. That's Ireland. 

Anyway, these shoes are adorable. I love the details on the scalp and the shape of the flats really feels chic and classy. It's the kind of shoes you can wear with a very casual outfit, the "diamond" scalps will do the difference. This fluffy jumper is the only item I bought in Derry, 10£ in Primark. This jumper is not the most flattering if you have shapes as I do but it is so soft and warm, I didn't really care.

Lipstick - MAC Ruby Woo

I hope you guys enjoyed. Don't forget to enter my giveaway and have a chance to win a dress worth 44$ but also to help single mothers in Columbia. 

I wish you a good day ♥


Wish List #44

18 November 2013

Listens : ♪ Fun – I Wanna Be The One




Hello little criminals ♥ This is quite an edgy wish list I have for you today. I will be honest with you, I wouldn't rock all the pieces together in one single outfit. I have the feeling that it is or the necklace or the jumper and that the skirt or bag might be too much. But these pieces are simply amazing to me and I wish I had them in my closet. I love this new trend with the word necklaces. The transparent bag and the holographic clothes are both trends I still love as if it's the first season. I seriously need to get that Féline beanie.

Let me know what is the piece of clothes you think can rock any outfit (from this list or not). 

Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY here and win a dress worth 44$ !
I wish you a good Monday ♥ 


GIVEAWAY | The 23 Shop handmade black dress

15 November 2013

Listens : ♪ The Neighbourhood – Say My Name/Cry me A River




Hi guys ! Today is a very very special post that I couldn't wait to share with you ! A giveaway ! I haven't done one since July and I wish I did more of them. But this time it's more than fashion. The TWENTY THREE SHOP has a specific goal that really touches me. All the clothes on the website are handmade by single mothers in low resources communities in Columbia. By shopping on that website you don't only get lovely clothing but you get to do something special for these women. So make sure to check the website out and share it with your friends or readers. 

For this giveaway, you will be able to win that gorgeous handmade black dress. The texture is very light and delicate. The work is amazing, I could feel how many hours this represented for these women. I really want to thank Tamara for sending me this gorgeous dress. I picked it up myself. Any girl needs a cute black dress that is not too sexy or too dressed up, this one has the perfect twists with the different textures and the cut on the side. The dress is normally a bit longer but I decided to wear it with a belt since I have (many) curves, I had to accentuate the waistline.


Please share this article or the website because it's not just about the giveaway or fashion, this could actually help people.

It is OPEN INTERNATIONALLY and will end on the 29th of NOVEMBER. The results will be announced on the blog and my Facebook/Twitter page so make sure to check it out ! The winner will be chosen randomly.

Thank you so much little criminals, I hope you enjoy this giveaway.
Have a good weekend and good luck ♥

Beauty Review | Gemey Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner

13 November 2013

Listens : ♪ The Wooden Sky – Take Me Out




Hello dolls ! Today I want to talk about the Gemey Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner that I bought when I was in Ireland. I have been looking for an eyeliner for ages, I always got disappointed about the texture. Most of the time it was fading away very quickly or on the contrary it was so intense that when I was opening my eyes, I got black everywhere on the lid (even hours after). So for a long time I simply gave up on it but in October I really wanted to rock that thick wing look and I thought a gel liner might be the best.

It cost about 10€ and first, when I opened it, I really loved the packaging, even though I expected something bigger but at the end, a little goes a long way. The gel liner is super easy to use, the packaging is absolutely lovely and the texture is amazing. It's super pigmented and stays on all day. I am loving it and it's worth the purchase ! I do think that the price could be a little cheaper for the size of the bottle.



Hope you guys enjoyed, let me know what is your favourite eye liner ! What do you prefer ? Liquid, gel or pen ? I wish you a good day, stay tuned for the giveaway coming soon !


Wish List #43

11 November 2013

Listens : ♪ The Wooden Sky – Take Me Out




Hi dears ♥ Today I'm back with another wish list. I had a massive crush on the flats and the jumper, I had to style them together ! Hope you will like it. The Chanel bag is worth like 2000€ (which is quite crazy) but I loved the shape so much and couldn't find a cheaper dupe. I hope you guys enjoy, stay tuned I have a giveaway coming this week ! 

Have a good day !

Beauty Review | Etude House Autumn Collection

9 November 2013

Listens : ♪ Agnes Obel– Riverside




Hi dolls ♥ Today I am very happy to share with you my products from Etude House ! As you might know, I did a blog post about it a few weeks ago, Etude House is a brand I always loved and wanted to try. They were lovely enough to send me some products from their new Autumn Collection which is simply great ! Here is my first impressions and review.


The eye shadow palette. Oh my. First, the packaging is just adorable (like everything from Etude House), the shades are amazing for the season and very pigmented. I wish I had a picture but I used the purples and brown to create a scar on Dariusz's face for Halloween. It looked so real, the colours were just great. I also did several makeup looks with it and I couldn't be happier about this palette.


The pencils are so lovely. I wanted to get that nude, champaign shade for a very long time. I use it daily on my water line to open my eyes but it is not as hard as a white pencil. They both are very pigmented and soft. Also, the packaging, again, is adorable.


From all the goodies I received, these lip stains are the biggest and best surprise. When I first saw them, I thought it would be another gloss (I'm not into gloss), then I thought they would be just lip stains, not that pigmented, not that great. How wrong was I ! These are matte finish (my favourite !) and extremely pigmented ! The pink shade (5015) is very bright, perfect for a party or summer time. And the dark red (5018) is also very strong and adorable for Autumn time. I wasn't sure about the applicator, the first time might be difficult but I ended up loving these ! Same as the pencils, I took them back to France with me for a daily use. They are AMAZING !


These two nail polishes are the only goodies I didn't have time to try. I did a lot of blogging in one week to make sure I'd have high quality pictures once in France. 

Thank you Etude House, this box was simply amazing and made me love the brand even more. It felt like Christmas when I opened it. The packaging is great, the makeup has an amazing quality. Everything is worth buying. Don't forget to check out their website for more cute products !

I hope you guys enjoyed, I wish you a good day ♥
