Manicure: True Love! ♥

Hello everyone! How have you been doing?
I'm quite busy this week, as you might have noticed. I'm guiding Erasmus students around with a couple of my friends, so I'm looking forward to that! Before I leave, I'd like to tell you at the nailpolish that I decided to go for today!
It's one that I've actually had for quite a while, yet I've never written a post about it!

This nailpolish is probably the nicest berry/red-ish nailpolish I own. It's by Essence and it's called "True love". 
This nailpolish, like other Essence nailpolishes, is very affordable and good quality! Two layers are enough for the perfect coverage and the texture is so nice!


I absolutely LOVE this nailpolish, I think it's very cute: girly but still classy.
Not too harsh!
What do you think?

Thanks for reading!

OOTD: Tag me!

Hello everyone! How are you doing?
January really is a month full of exams. About twice a week, we have exams, so aside from getting ready to go to school, I don't have a lot of time to do my make-up, let alone experimenting with it. That's one of the reasons I've been uploading quite a few outfit of the day pictures. Also, I have gotten some inspiration for locations recently, which is always fun!

Could I have looked worse in this picture? I don't know!
We just started shooting pictures at this beautiful location with very nice grafitti art, when a cat welcomed us. She wouldn't leave us alone and followed us around the whole time we were there. She was so cute!


Today's sweater is the very glittery "Elfie Selfie" sweater that Katy Perry designed for H&M. When I first saw it, it made me giggle so much, that's why I got it. I think Katy Perry can be a very cheesy person and I absolutely love it. Underneith, I wore a pastel yellow button down shirt by New Look.
My pants are by H&M as well.


Thanks for reading! 
Let me know what you think about this outfit!

An unusual way to get an outfit of the day

Hello everyone!
How have you been doing? Ah, these last few weeks have been so exciting! I have a lot of plans to travel but aside from that there are also just a lot of other things that I'm working on. I'm getting my first car, I have just moved, I'm meeting new people and trying new things...


The most recent new experience I had actually was about a week ago. I had a New Year's reception to go to and aside from having a lot of fun, I also met quite a few new people. All very nice people. And one of them, turned out to be a burlesque dancer!
You have to know that "Burlesque" the movie is my favourite movie, and that I follow a bunch of pin-up girls and burlesque stars on Instagram.
I honestly didn't really believe her, until she said she would dance for us! We went to the bar that she owned and she performed!
It was so incredible and I honestly never could have imagined that this would be something I'd be doing in 2016, but I did and it was awesome!
Of course all of the ladies in the bar tried to perform after that, but lukily, there's no footage of that.
Anyways, here's my outfit from that night! I wore a white dress that I got on sale at H&M and the poncho is by H&M as well. I wore my knee high boots with this outfit because it matches the colour of my poncho perfectly (even though you can't tell because the pictures are black and white).


I have to opologize for the quality of the pictures. I would have loved for them to be a better in quality but I guess there's only so much you can do in a dark bar with limited lighting.
What do you think of this outfit?
Thanks for reading!

OOTD: Colour coding

 

Hello everyone! How are you?
This morning when I was picking out the clothes I wanted to wear today, I started thinking... If you had to describe yourself with a colour, which colour would it be and why?
I think I would pick a red colour. Even though I have red hair and I love red lipstick, red is not my favourite colour, however, I do like it.
I think red is for passion and well- there are things that I don't like doing, just like everyone - but I try to spend my days doing things I'm passionate about.

I guess it's no suprise the sweater that I picked out is red. It's a very comfortable, warm sweater, which is just what I need right now. Also, it's oversized which is great because I have gained some weight (thanks, college), but you won't be able to tell!
Everything else is quite dark. I'm wearing my new boots (no heels, phew) and a nice long coat that I got at H&M. It doesn't have any zippers or buttons, because it's a kind of wiggle coat. I like it a lot! A lot of times I let it hang open though.

 

I took this picture in the park of the city where I grew up. I don't live there anymore now, but I like going back.
It's always so nostalgic because I used to go play football with my dad in this park when I was younger. I think the little kiosk in between the trees really has something special, magical almost.


So... If you had to describe yourself with a colour, which one would it be?
Have a lovely day!

Manicure Monday: Masked ball

Happy Monday everyone! 
Remember the limited edition nailpolishes that I got from Essence a couple of weeks ago? I got two shades of purple and the lightest one, which I already tried in my review, really surprised me (in a good way).


 I hadn't tried the darkest colour, called "A masked ball", and I was really excited. So last night, I used this nailpolish to do my nails with.
I applied two layers.


I wish the nailpolish looked a little more purple because now it just looks like a really dark grey/black-ish nailpolish, which is not what I was expecting but it's okay.
Everything else is just like it should be, good quality, good coverage, nice texture. I like it! 

Thanks for reading! 
Have a good day!
