Pinterest #2

Another post featuring the infamous Pinterest platform. This time it is all about make up and hairdos that I want to learn to create sometime in the future. It all looks simple in the pictures but when you try to recreate the looks it just looks like a terrible mess, yes, I've been there many times. But, as they say practice makes things perfect. Never stop perfecting yourself, there are always new things to learn.

So, my most beloved looks from the board Beauty (these are not my pictures, just my repins):
                           I can never get my polka dots right like this, is there a magic trick I missed out on?
                          Love Keira's hair and make up in this picture, totally something I would wear.
                                        Perfect eye make up for Christmas or New Years Eve.
 This is not an exactly Autumn/Winter look but I really like the combination of the colours here, you could create the same effect but with a red and a burgundy lipstick.
Perfect manicure
                           Really love the make up here, requires a good brushes and a lot of blending.

                               A lot of work in achieving these colours probably, but totally worth it.
                      Love love love the lipstick, I think the colour Rebel by Mac is quite similar to this.
                                              Need to get my hands on it, as soon as possible.

                                             A summery look but love it for autumn, nonetheless.

Very classy and Bardotesque, don't you think?

The Body Shop Haul

In the past few weeks, I have been searching for a body lotion or a body butter for my daily use, because strangely enough I did not bring one with me when I came back to the UK. I went to Boots, Superdrug and all the other shops around town looking for an affordable price and a good scent. Having not found anything that fancied my likes I just waited a bit, it's like I knew some great deal is going to turn up my way. And then I got THE email that was worth all the wait. An email from the Body Shop saying that they have a 40% off the entire website, including the sale. Now that's what I am talking about. I love Body Shop body butters but £13 for a body butter to me is a bit much (I'm a student, after all) that is why I always try to stock up when they have great sales like that. So, of course I immediately started browsing the website and ended up buying a whole lot of products. And it all cost me only £21.15.
I would definitely recommend signing for their newsletter if you are a Body Shop lover like me.

This is what I got:

Brazil Nut Body Butter 200 ml 
Coconut Body Butter 50 ml 
Coconut Lip Butter 10 ml 
Vineyard Peach Body Lotion 250 ml 

Brazil Nut Body Mist 100 ml
Love Etc Eau de Parfum 30 ml (great for your handbag)
Cranberry Joy Room, Linen and Body Spray 100 ml (a very Christmassy scent)
2 x Almond Shower Gels 250 ml each
Vineyard Peach Shower Gel 250 ml
Raspberry Shower Gel 250 ml

Pinterest #1

Don't you just love Pinterest? I always get so much inspiration just by browsing different Pinterest categories,  to be honest I think my most repinned one is Hair & Beauty, but I can't be blamed there are so many beautiful things out there and so many girls I want to look like.
But, today, I've decided to share with you a few bits from two of my boards: Places & Spaces (inspiration for my future apartment (hopefully in a few years) and travels) and a Wishlist board, with things I want to get my hands on as soon as possible.
If any of these bring a smile to your face, a good memory or a creative idea, I've done my job for the day.

To see the full collection of pictures, click here:

From the board called Places & Spaces also known as Take me there as soon as possible:

And from the Wishlist (I have a lot, but these are the most wanted for now):

 Lovely, eh? You can never dream too big.

How about that? It is beautiful.


I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I,
and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.
If not, it can't be helped.

(Fritz Perls, "Gestalt Therapy Verbatim", 1969)
