Etos Beauty: Summertime

On Tuesday I told you more about my first experience with the Etos Social Ambassador program. Today I will review the first two products I got at this meeting: the Etos Limited Edition Make-Up Fixing Spray and the Etos Rainbow Highlighter. Because Summertime equals lovely bright colours my backdrops will be colourful as well during these Summer months.

Ever since I got my first eyeshadow palette by this brand I have been absolutely sold on the brand and every month my collection seems to get a little bigger. So today I want to talk to you about the NYX Lip Lingerie in the colour Bedtime Flirt.

Shoplog: Everyone Needs a Good Nude Palette

First of all, my sincerest apologies for not posting anything last week. I feel that every time I post an apology it has to do with me being really busy. The past weeks have been just a little bit more busy than usual. At this point I am getting ready for my board year, following a Creative Writing course and at the same time writing a B.A. Thesis (which means that, fingers crossed, I will finish my English Bachelor this year🎉) . I will be back to posting more once I finish my thesis (which btw has totally ruined Disney movies for me). So today as I am finishing my pre-final Thesis I decided it would be nice to have a distraction in the form of a blogpost.

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).
