As you can tell from how quiet it has been on this blog, a lot has been happening lately. My life situation and plans have changed a lot in the past two months. Soon I'll be moving away from the beautiful mountain town of Engelberg and becoming a citizen of the equally beautiful city of Lucerne. I work and I will soon go to school in this city so it only makes sense to find a 1-room apartment here.
I've been in a pretty big slump lately but since the sun has been shining I've been feeling a teensy bit better. And now that I'm actively looking at rentals, I'm already dreaming about how I'll decorate and what I'd like to buy (mostly from IKEA, of course...).
From May 3 - 10 I took a trip to Warsaw, Poland with my parents. They both come from here and I've come here multiple times to visit family and friends. This place always feels very familiar to me: the delicious food, the language and the few family members and childhood friends of my parents' who we still see every time we visit.
I was inspired by J is for Jord's summer reading list and thought I'd share my own since I always, and I mean always, have a stack of books that is in my "to be read" pile, or shall I say, my "to be read" bookcase.
(This cocktail contains Cream of Coconut, Amaretto, Fluffed Marshmallow Vodka and Godiva white chocolate liquor - sounds absolutely amazing!)
One of my favorites! This is Lapiz of Luxury by Essie, a gorgeous "ocean blue" or "opulent azure" (what?).
Today I'm comin' at you with my second "Pop of Color" makeup look (see the first look here!).
Hi guys. I'm sorry I haven't posted in a little while. I've been going through some personal
shit stuff lately so my mind hasn't really been on my blog in the past week.
And, the only posts which I've pre-photographed are "Lacquer Love" posts so I'm coming at you with another nail polish post. Hope you don't mind :)
nail polish March 22, 2014
I love using simple scotch tape to create very easy and subtle nail art. Check out this nail look I did last June using scotch tape and some fun, bring pink polish.
This, my friends, is my lovely new bag by the brand JUMP.
The other day, I ventured into The Body Shop on my lunch break on a mission to purchase three items... I ended up with seven - so surprising, I know...
The weather here in Switzerland is changing, slowly but surely, and Spring is definitely on its way.
Because of the sunny weather, I've been liking eye makeup with a touch of color. I'm not really one to wear some crazy eye shadow or anything that really stands out, but I do love a touch, a hint, of color that makes my eyes stand out.
After reading through Anna's post about her MAC palette two days ago, I thought I'd share my palette on here since I love seeing other people's self-made palettes and getting inspired by them. Usually these DIY-palettes are full of wearable, every day eye shadows which makes these compilations much more realistic than palettes put together by makeup brands.
I've gotten into using more natural skincare products lately and bought some things from Lush (see my haul here) and from Korres.
