Off to London

In less than 12 hours I’ll be sitting on a bus that’s headed to the great city of London. I cannot put my excitement into words. So far I’ve only been to the UK twice but none of my visits lasted longer than one day, so I’m really excited I finally get to stay for a longer time. 5 days in total actually.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to post anything since I will be busy with sightseeing, shopping and partying but I can’t wait to fill you guys in on everything when I get back.

I hope everyone has  a great New Years Eve and a good start into the year of 2014!

My Beauty Essentials for Every Day

Happy Saturday everyone!

So as I have mentioned in my last post I’m going on a 6 hour bus ride to London early tomorrow morning. Today I’m all busy with packing, which seems to be taking forever. I suck at packing because basically I want to bring half of my wardrobe but of course that wouldn’t fit into one suitcase and I already know I won’t even wear half of the things I pack but anyway… you need to be prepared for every situation, right?

Apart from clothes, make-up is quite important for me. I  don’t want to look all worn out when arriving in London or anywhere else so I always carry a little make-up bag in my purse wherever I go.

It contains all of my necessary products for an everyday look. I personally prefer a natural look for my every day make-up. A lot of girls at my University wear really heavy eye make-up and bright red lipsticks to class but I just don’t see why. I think a natural look is much prettier, so I like to use products that emphasise the features of my face that I like best. I don’ t want to cover everything up. On a night out I totally like red lipstick or a more dramatic eye make-up. Just not during the day and especially not in class. That’s just my personal opinion. Anyway….

So here’s a list of my favorite everyday products that I can’t live without:

1. photo 4

Since I prefer a natural look I don’t wear an actual foundation but I use Miracle Skin Perfector by Garnier. I have tried many different BB creams by different brands but this one is by far my favorite. My skin is incredibly pale so most BB creams make me look orange, which is obviously not to color I’m aiming for. One product I can’t leave the house without is my Mineralize Skinfinish Natural by MAC. This mineralizing powder works absolute wonders and makes my skin look flawless and refreshed. I also tend to keep a concealer close by in case I get dark circles because no one wants to look tired.

I don’t wear eyeshadow every day but if I do I tend to go with shades of beige and brown since they’re earth tones and look more natural. This palette is definitely one of my favorite products I’ve bought so far. It’s no.39 out of the Chanel ‘Les 4 Ombres’ Collection, so I’ve invested quite the amount of money into it but I haven’t regretted it once so far.

The Hypnose Doll Eyes mascara by Lancome is my absolute favorite mascara. Luckily I was blessed with rather long lashes already so this mascara gives my lashes even more length, definition and volume. I’m in love with it.

Eyeliner is not a product I use every day though I do use it pretty often. My personal favorite is the Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner by Maybelline New York. 

5. photo 8

The Soft Sensation Lip Butter by Astor is my current favorite lip product. Why? Because it combines all 3 type of lip products. It’s got the texture and color of a lipstick, the shimmer of a gloss and it moisturizes your lips like a lip balm. Plus it comes in many great colors. I currently own 3 but my favorite is this nude color.

I love how it gives your lips a glossy simmer that almost looks natural and it also keeps them moisturized at the same time. How cool is that?

Last but no least I always carry bobby pins and a hair tie with me.

With these products in my purse I’m all set to go wherever I please and always look my best (hopefully).

What products can’t you live without?

Starting 2014 with the Perfect Outfit

Now sadly Christmas is officially already over, which makes me feel a little depressed because it’s basically my favourite time of the year but at least we still have New Year’s Eve to come! The last few years I was always massively excited for New Year’s Eve and it was always a rather big disappointment so this year better be amazing because I have planned something amazing!

I will be celebrating into the new year with my best friend in LONDON! I am beyond excited! So far I’ve only been to London once but just for a day. This time I’ll be staying for 5 days.

Since this year I want my New Year’s Eve to finally be really awesome I’m definitely going to need the perfect outfit and I’m pretty sure I’ve found just the right one.

The week before Christmas I was doing some Christmas shopping for some friends when I spotted this beautiful dress and fell in love with it right away. Lucky for me it was on sale so I just couldn’t help myself. I had to buy it.

I just love this color

Since it’s probably going to be very cold and I will be spending quite some time outside counting down the hours until the 2014 before hitting a club I have my fur jacket to keep me warm. Now for all the animal lovers out there.. this fur is NOT REAL! I am a totally animal lover myself and I would never ever ever wear real fur but I just love the look of it.

The jacket is grey so I thought I’d wear my new grey heels with it. They’re not too high and very comfortable. I guess i’ll be wearing them all night so comfortable shoes are quite important.

Of course I’m going to need a little purse to carry all my necessary belongings with me. I chose this silver/golden one.

and one more last photo of some accessories.

So this is going to be my perfect outfit for my perfect New Year’s Eve.  I’m already beyond excited and I can’t wait for my trip to London. I’ll be leaving early Sunday morning.

I hope all of you will find your perfect outfit to shine in!

Much love!

Sparkly Outfit for the Holidays

So we’re still on Christmas break and my family has decided to end off Christmas by going to a fancy restaurant. Now the question is always: WHAT TO WEAR?  You don’t want to be overdressed and definitely not underdressed.

Here’s an idea from me.

I’m wearing this party dress tonight but I’m going to turn it into an appropriate outfit for a restaurant by adding a few accessories.

I decided to match a pearl bracelet with it to make the outfit look more sophisticated.

Of course the right shoes are alway important! Since I’m going to a restaurant I decided to go with a low heel.

Since the dress is strapless and that might be a little cold I decided to wear my sparkly little black jacket with it.

As for the hair and make up…. I kind of wanted to create a messy hair look so I washed it and put it up in a bun right after to make it a little wavy. I also put one part of my hair like this Photo on 26-12-13 at 06.26 pm #3

I’m a fan of red lipstick and since it looks good with this dress I decided to go with red lipstick but a light eye make up.

No, my eye lashes are not fake!

So this is my sparkly and festive outfit for the holidays. I hope you guys like it. Let me know what you think!
