Press | Illamasqua's Halloween


Halloween is on our doorstep and Illamasqua is more than aware. 




Not only is Illamasqua releasing a new nail varnish, called Swarm, and a new set of lashes, they've also combined them in a duo set.

In their webshop you can also buy the UV glow nail varnishes in a set. You can save more than half (!) the orginal price.

If you're looking for inspiration for halloween make-up, Illamasqua has put some face charts on their website as a little treat.

Lots of ♥,
Laure

Personal | Edinburgh: Royal McGreggor

Hey lovelies,


Prepare for a long post because there's a lot to say about this one!

This post might be something different then what you are used to from us. I like to believe we give our honest opinion on everything we post here. We're never sponsored or get things sent to us. Every product on here is bought with our own money or given as a gift by family or friends.
A quick read trough our (almost 100!) posts kind of showed me that we are never overly enthusiastic about a product. We love a fair few but there are very few that we can't stop talking about and that we would instead of kindly recommend to you, practically force you to buy (honestly if a product was that good we wouldn't really. Just manner of speaking).

So a bit of a different post then because this thing has stolen our heart and we have nothing but love for it!

My very first franken attempt (finally)

Hi everyone,

So I've finally found some spare time to post this. I did this somewhere in July, but was a bit busy lately.

So, I followed the advice from dr. Frankenpolish (http://drfrankenpolish.wordpress.com/2009/02/01/frankenpolish-101-a-crash-course-in-the-art-of-frankening/). There you can find everything you need to know about frankening, so I won't repeat all the steps here.

These are some of the supplies I gathered to start my first try at frankening. But as I was working, I walked around the house to collect more polishes and stuff. I wanted to create a gift for my two fellow blogger girls, and one for myself off course!

Kleancolor : pastel blue and pastel teal

Hi lovelies,

These pictures have been lying about for a while. They were taken in the first nice weather of this year so that must be around May.

Swatches | GOSH Blue Diamond, Greeny & Bluebell Pigments

Quite a while ago, I bought these pigments. Normally I don't really buy GOSH products because the brand's a little out of my price range. But they were on sale because they are no longer going to be sold in Kruitvat, so I figured I'd give them a go. Ellenore might also write a review about this in the future, seeing as she also bought three and snagged some lovely neutral colours. (Still a little jealous about that... ;D)

Swatches | Max Lipsticks Cranberry & Rose Red

A while back I went with my parents to Action and of course I had a look at the make-up section. I wasn't planning on buying anything, but my dad convinced me to buy a two-pack of lipstick. (Totally out of character for my dad! He tries to show an interest for me, but he really doesn't care about make-up.) They had several shades, but there was only one two-pack that spoke to me (and my dad): the one with Cranberry and Rose Red.

Today I got around to photographing and swatching them. Voilà!

Personal | Blog about Prague: Day 4

We've arrived at the final day in Prague. On the last day we didn't do much. We just walked around on the Wenceslas Square and checked out some of the shops there. Sadly, it wasn't very interesting...


We did however discover this gem. While walking past a book shop, I took a look at the window display and noticed something. All the female authors had -ová added to their name, so Rowling became Rowlingová, Meyer became Meyerová, Roberts became Robertsová, etc... The names of the male authors remained the same though.

Personal | Blog about Prague: Day 3

On the third day, we decided to go to the Spanish Synagogue, the Jewish Cemetary and the Dancing House.



We couldn't find a way in, so we figured you couldn't visit the inside... Thus, we only have a picture of the outside. We ended up going to the Jewish Cemetary (I love cemetaries), but it was overflowing with people and Céline doesn't like cemetaries so we didn't go inside. We just walked around it.

Personal | Blog about Prague: Day 2

Sorry that it took so long to get this up. As you probably saw in the previous post by Ellenore, the three of us went on a city trip to Edinburgh which took some planning, hence the delay. But I'm back and I'll try to get the exploits in Prague on the blog. ;)

On the second day, we went to Malá Strana, which is across the river from where we were staying. Prague is divided in two parts by the Vltava river. Malá Strana is the smaller part.

Update: Edinburgh and what to come!

Hi lovelies,

we've been ever so quiet over the last week and a half. That's because we were preparing to go to Edinburgh on a short city trip and the past five days that's where we were. We had a ball and I don't know about the other girls but I was sad to go and I already miss that wonderful city that I fell in love with.

We did do some damage, I more than Laure and Lilly. We also filmed our first ever shop logs and actually made vlogs that will make it to the internet. A bit disappointingly maybe but these might not be uploaded here but on our new channel that will focus around more expensive brands and how to get them on a budget as some of the products were not within our normal low budget price class. (Don't worry we didn't spent out of character either) I know that in my haul are some great budget buys and I'm currently test driving and I will be reviewing them here.

We had a lovely time and we will talk some more about our experience in the city in the coming week or so. You can also expect to hear more from Laure about her trip to Prague soon.

Some quick (not telling) pictures from our trip:

Lilly - me - Laure
 I might not look like a happy bunny but trust me I was really excited to be going to Edinburgh! This was the picture that came out the best in our first attempt at a selfie...

Some tired smiling going on on the way back...

Lots of Love

Ellenore
