Shoplog: “I need a purple concealer”

One thing I realised after landing back on Dutch ground was that the circles under my eyes really could not have been any darker. After a week full of fun activities and no more than four hours of sleep a night my skin could not have been any paler. My tiredness decided that this was the perfect time for my face to show just how tired I was. The bags under my eyes could have been spotted from the moon so I decided that I wanted to get a purple concealer to get those bags covered-up. Sadly I am absolutely terrible at just getting one thing so I then ended up buying a whole lot more (not everything is pictured).

Shoplog: Bought in Budapest

I have been back now from Budapest for a little over a week and with the first week of classes having finished, I felt it would be time to finally post my little Budapest shoplog. I did not buy a lot of things while I was over there which mostly had to do with the fact that not only did I not have a lot of money but also because I was organizing this trip for 34 others I did not have a lot of spare time. While over there one of my friends spotted a DM (a German drugstore) on the first day and ever since we had been discussing how we had to visit one while we were there. Sadly the only time that we got into one was when the store was apparently already closed and we were not supposed to be inside (my bad).

Room for Thought: Welcome to Your Tape

A couple of weeks have passed since Netflix dropped Thirteen Reasons Why and honestly it is hard to remember what life was like before this show became available for streaming. The popular show is based on the novel written by Jay Asher and after a movie adaptation starring Selena Gomez fell through Gomez became involved in turning the novel into a tv-series. While the web is filled with opinions on the show I do not wish to focus on the content of the series. I would rather talk to you about the way people are responding to the series. This post may contain spoilers.

Picture Perfect: I Left Part of Me in Budapest

While last week you had an article to read almost everyday, this week has been fairly quiet on the blog. Now that I have cleared-up the dust let me tell you why. This Monday I hopped on a plane and flew to Budapest. If you are a regular visitor of my blog you may know that I am the chair of a trip abroad committee which is part of my study association. Since the beginning of Oktober four other girls have been planning this study trip to the beautiful city Budapest for a total of 35 university students. Yesterday we landed and while there are so many things I could blog about, I really wanted to share with you my photos.

Benefit Beauty & the Beat Cheek Parade: Rockateur

I can see you thinking ‘Was this girl not going to post every day this week?’ Yes, I was however, yesterday was extremely tiring and as soon as I got home I pretty much fell asleep. So my sincerest apologies but sometimes life happens. Welcome back for the third day of this Benefit Beauty & the Beat Cheek Parade review. Each day I dedicate one of my blogposts to one of the full-sized blushes/bronzers in this beautiful Benefit palette. If you have missed one of the previous ones, click here for my review of Hoola Lite and here for yesterday’s post on Galifornia. So today will be dedicated to the lovely shimmery blush Rockateur. It feels as if Rockateur is the underdog of the Benefit blushes which is why I was all the more excited to try it out.

Benefit Beauty & the Beat Cheek Parade: Galifornia

Yesterday I reviewed the brand new Hoola Lite as part of this week’s celebration of the new Benefit Cheek Parade palette. So up today is the also quite new Galifornia blush! I fell in love with the packaging as soon as my Instagram feed started to fill up with this beautiful blush. At first I was a bit scared that even though it is a stunning colour, it would not be for me due to the colour of my hair.

Shoplog #4 I Lack Self-Controle

As I am writing this I have finally finished the hell that was my final assignment for this block. The only time that I have dreaded an assignment like this before was when I had to write a paper on television genres and it felt like I had literally landed in hell. Luckily for me when I come home I will be comforted by the fact that I have treated myself to some new make-up. This Monday was payday and since I lack obvious self-control I went on a “little” shopping spree. It started at home with a plane-ticket to visit my best friend who is currently taking courses at the University of Birmingham. After receiving my new bag (which I had also ordered) I went to city centre to turn in my final paper for my Translation course and afterwards headed straight for the Douglas.
