Mesmerizing Mermaid Brushes

A while back one of my friends (fellow blogger A Beauty Day) got her hands on one of those unicorn brush sets. I had seen multiple variants of those brushes all over Instagram but the retailers on there charged €30,- most of the times. Because i did not really need those brushes I just let those offers fly by. But her post got me interested, mostly because she got them on Aliexpress which is one of the biggest online markets out there. I decided to give it a shot and to start the search for my beloved brushes.

€10 Challenge: Primark

I have a problem, quite a serious problem which is the hole in my hand… This is why I have decided to try a new challenge the €10 challenge. Every month I will go to a different store to see how much €10 will get me. The only rule that I do have is that I can only buy things which might be useful. I could spend €10 on cotton swabs but that defeats the purpose. This week I start off with one of the stores that I have a love-hate relationship with: Primark. Last week the weather was really good meaning that I was practically melting so I decided to go to Primark to see whether they had some cute shorts. Also I wanted to check out their scented candles because I had heard good things about them.

Picture Perfect: Bold Birmingham

As most of you will know the past two months have involved quite a lot of trips abroad. About a month ago I went to Budapest with a group of 35 student (you can check those photo’s out here) and two weeks later I flew to England to visit one of my closest friends who is currently studying abroad for 6 months. We had talked about the trip for quite a while but it wasn’t until a month before the actual flight that I knew for certain if I could make the trip or not. Money was a little tight and considering that I am going abroad again this week (cannot tell you the location just yet) I had to think about whether it was possible or not. Luckily everything came together and I managed to make my way to Birmingham. Most of the photo’s were taken on the same day (I think all of them) because I did want to enjoy her company for as long as I could (and maybe we did not get too much sleep during those five days).

I hope you enjoy!

Love,
Nica

Ps. The photo of the geese was added not because I thought it was a particularly pretty photo or because I like geese that much. They did make have a near-death experience which is why I wanted to include them in this post. They scared the shit out of me (and resulted in hysterical laughing when the parents pretty much charged at us).

NYX Ombre Blush: Strictly Chic

A while ago I went to check-out the new NYX counter at my local Douglas. I had always been a fan of NYX but before it was quite hard to get your hands on the entire range of products they had to offer. One of the first things I noticed were their ombre blushes, at the time they did not have the one that I wanted (which is the one pictured below Strictly Chic) so I bought Mauve Me. Flash forward to a few weeks later when the peachy blush was back in stock, I just knew I had to get it.
