5 favourites – April

We are rapidly moving into the last month of spring, and I really wish the weather would get a lot warmer very soon. Anyways, April was another very busy month for me, and my exams start in May, so I have yet another busy month ahead of me. But let’s say goodbye to April by talking about some favourites.

Silver sneakers by Missguided: I’m so glad I bought these silver sneakers back in December. They add a little extra something to any outfit, and I don’t think I’ve ever gotten so many complements on a pair of shoes before.

Jeffree Star Beauty Killer eye shadow palette: Jeffree Star Cosmetics is one of my favourite make-up brands, and I finally bought the Beauty Killer palette a couple of months ago. The shadows are so pigmented, and I love the colours; I’ve actually worn more colourful eye looks this month partly because of this palette.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo contouring palette in Dulce De Leche: This little highlight and contour duo is very handy. It’s great for travelling, and the powders are matte and very pigmented.

MONSTERS, INC. 3D

Monsters, Inc. (film): On the film front, my 2017 has been amazing so far. One of the best films, I’ve watched this past month, is Monsters, Inc. I’ve watched it once before, but that was years ago, so I didn’t remember much of it. It was so good though, but as the Disney lover that I am, I find it hard to dislike anything Disney.

glee

Glee (TV series): I’ve watched Glee before, but this month I just felt like rewatching it. So I watched the first two seasons and about half of the third season again, and I still love it. I was in my gymnasium’s (high school) choir, which I loved, but I wish it would have been more like glee club.

Berry, where have you been?

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I hadn’t worn a berry lip in ages, and this one has a beautiful, shimmery, purple sheen to it.

Here’s what I wore Friday March 17. Even though I love colours, some days I just feel like wearing black.

MAC Colour Rocker + lip pencil

I’m always excited about lipsticks in fun and unusual colours, so obviously I had to get my hands of some of the MAC Colour Rocker lipsticks. I know they’re been out for a while, but I’m on my busiest semester so far, so I don’t have time to blog as regularly as I used to. I’ll try to blog as much as I can though. Anyways, back to lipsticks. I decided to buy three shades from the collection (even though I could have bought pretty much every shade); Show and Teal, Night Mint, and Cold Hard Cash. At the time I bought the lipsticks there was a deal on the webside where you would get 20 % off if the bought a lipstick and a lip pencil, so I saw that as an opportunity to buy the lip pencil in Stone as well. I’ll post looks with all of these lip products eventually, but I have a look wearing one of them coming up soon.

Pink stain

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. My pink mood called for pink make-up as well. The hot pink eye shadow I’m wearing is so pigmented that it left a stain after I removed it.

In a pink mood

Here’s what I wore Friday March 10. I was in a very pink mood that day (I don’t know if you can actually be in a pink mood, but I was), so I pulled my pink blazer out of my closet and wore it with my Barbie T-shirt. I love that combo!

Bad nail habits

DSC_2292DSC_2293DSC_2291

I haven’t done a nail post in ages, and it’s because my nails were in a really bad condition for a long time, but a few weeks back they got a bit better (the pictures) and now they’re a bit bad again. By bad I mean that they break all the time. My nails are very fragile, and I think it might have something to do with the fact that I used to bite my nails; I started biting them in kindergarten and didn’t stop until I was 16. I still have the tendency to fiddle with my nails when they’re starting to break which doesn’t make it better. Do you know any good products for making your nails stronger?
