So lazy sunday, sundays are usually the days when I paint my nails cuz I just don't have the time or energy to do it other days.. And today I felt like doing some nail art (if you can call a gradient, art) with some blues and some glitter. I wanted my nails to look like a starry sky =) this is how it turned out:
O.P.I's Azure for Supre (light aqua blue)
China Glaze's Awaken (gunmetal grey) & Shooting stars (multicolour glitter)
Make up Store's Raven (dark dark blue) I think this one is actually discontinued =/
So yesterday my boyfriend took me out on a date night =) We've been together for a little more than 2½ years and I feel it's really important to still take the time to go out on dates just to keep the fun in your relationship.
So he took me to the Italian restaurant in the old part of Stockholm that we went to on our second ever date. It's one of my fave restaurants ever, it's small, cozy, great food, great service (we got comlementary champange just because we were early and had to wait a few minutes, such great service) it has those classic red & white square table cloths, it's just one of my faves. If you ever have the chance when here in Stockholm go to Ristorante Paganini Väster Långgatan 75 Old Town..
Anyways here's my FOTN for my date with John =)
I USED Face: Lumene beauty base matifying primer
Garnier Tinted Eye roll-on
Bare minerals Original foundation
NARS Brozer Laguna
NARS Blush Deep Throat
Eyes: Lumene eyeshadow primer
MAC e/s All that glitters (lid), Vanilla (highlight), Graphology (smudged along eyeliner)
Helena Rubenstein Silk Pencil Black (waterline & along lashlines)
Isadora Eyebrow pencil Light brown
Max Factor 2000 calorie mascara
Lips: Eucerin Lipbalm (fave lipalm atm)
As you can see I went for a little smokey "sexy" look. I think this is as heavy as I go when on dates. I wouldn't go for more just because I want John to see my eyes and not just the makeup. Also I went for lipbalm as it's soooo much nicer when you kiss ^^
So this month I'm on a very strict budget so I can save as much as possible. Hopefully for a round the world trip =) But, I've let myself spend a surtain amount on whatever I want and I went for an oldie but goodie and 2 completely new products for me.
First we have my fave silk serum - L´anza' Healing strength silk serum. It was on a 30% off sale and mine that I use now is almost completely gone so I just couldn't pass up on it..
Then, just beacause I'm curious and I actually don't like MAC Fix+ all that much (it does nothing else but take away the cakyness) I went for the Urban Decay All nighter setting spray. I've heard so many great things about this setting spray I had to try it. It's also my first ever Urban Decay product hehe =)
Then, because I'm a huuuge fan of Too Faced's Primed & Poreless primer when it now was time for a new powder (my MSFN is almost gone, and it's too heavy in winter) I thought that maybe I'll like the powder as much as I like the primer. So I went for the Primed & Poreless powder =)
Now this is it for shopping this month hehe.. I only have money for food left in my budget now so any other shopping will have to wait til next payday..
What do you guys say? Have you tried any of these products? =)
So i found this great little list thingy on Funky Makeup Junkie and thought that it looks like a fun way to expand my horizon and find other blogs that I otherwise wouldn't. So check these blogs out and/or enter the list yourself =)
Can you guy beleive it's september allready??? I can't, crazy! Anyways September is here and it's time to rally up the August favourites =)
Head & Shoulders Hydrating smooth and silky Shampoo & Conditioner - I have a very sensitive scalp from time to time so I sometimes need a more hydtrating shampoo and conditioner that will help my scalp aswell as my hair. These does he trick. My scalp doesn't feel as dry and sensitive anymore and my hair is silky and soft. It's smells gorgeous aswell =)
The body shop Coconut Body butter - I bet you've all tried this one before and loved it as much as I do. I usually get very sick of the coconut smell during summer, but when summer is almost over I tend to use this just because it is so moisturizing and I feel it's summer just a litlle while longer =)
CLEAN Outdoor shower fresh perfume - Been obsessed with this one the whole month. I just love it!
O.P.I Nail polish Koala Bear-y - This is such an amazing berry pink it's crazy. It has an amazing formula aswell. I can actually get away with just one coat sometimes, but just to be safe I always do 2 coats but still. Formula is amazing =)
Garnier Tinted Eye Roll-on - So easy for those days when you don't have much to do, maybe some grocery shopping or something. I just roll on some under my eyes, dot it all in, finish the skin with some powder and blush and that makes me look so natural and fresh. Love it!
MAC eyeshadow All That Glitters - I've been using it all over the lid those days when I just want a little bit righter eyes. Such an easy colour to wear.
Bicycle helmets - A few days ago, a man almost ran me and Balto over but he managed to just in time stear away but the bike went down and he went up in the air flying towards a moving car and he hit the car (on the side) with back of his hed, neck and shoulders. I'm sooo thankful he had a helmet on, his head would be crushed if he didn't. He got away with just a soar shoulder and some scratches on his legs.
So please people, wear a helmet when biking in the city!!
