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!


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).


This one was actually taken with my iPhone while in the bus

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.
