#BLOGtober 3rd [NEW IN] Blouses


A purchase from when I started school again after summer. There´s always a need for nice shirts and blouses to wear to school. I need options! It´s hard to make an effort to dress nicely when you get up at 4:30am - all I want to wear are hoodies and sweatpants.

This is really cute and makes a casual outfit look more dressed up right away.

Shortsleeve blouse, gives a more formal look and especially if paired with a blazer.

Kind of Indian, kind of hippie inspired flared longsleeve shirt. Can´t wait to wear this with some nice boots!

These shirts can easily be worn with basic jeans or a pair of black pants, a blazer or just a nice fall jacket. It doesn´t take me a lot of effort in the morning and it looks representable :)

I said I need options, but I can´t have too many and even though I plan my outfits the night before - I will probably end up changing 3 or 4 times before I´m satisfied. I´m hopeless with clothes:) What about you?

NEW IN: Mac lipsticks and lipglosses

I couldn´t remember the last time I bought some nice lipsticks and glosses so when I saw the MAC store I just couldn´t to resist the urge of going in..

My plan was to get ONE lipstick. Creme de Nude or Creme Cup.
Well, long story short - I couldn´t decide which one so I got both of them. Then I saw some nice glosses, so I got them too. You know how it goes right!?

I´ve been down with a flu and sinusitis this past week and I´m behind on studies.
My nephew turns 2 on Sunday, we´re having a party tomorrow so I have a bunch of cakes to prepare tonight - hello stress!

A closer look on all of these lovely products are coming up!

Makeup Haul


1. Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer. 

Still trying this one out and before I say anything super positive about it I would like to test it and see if it really is as good as everyone raving on about! First impression is quite good though!
It has the same color and texture as Benefit POREfessional, if that tells you anything. I´m a super fan of that primer so that is definitely a plus!
Will do a review on this later if that is wanted? =) 

2. Lancome Color Ideal Precise Match Skin Perfecting Make-up, Foundation #3.

As summer is approaching my skin is acting up in all different kinds of ways and it seems it have different needs every day. With means I am in need of different coverage, formula, color, texture, every day. One foundation is simply not enough for me.
This was half of the original price, they had my color and I though it was a great (and cheap) way to try out yet another foundation.
It did not disappoint at all and I really, really, really like it!
Light, but gives enough coverage, nice color, evens out, not too dry or dewy.
Have you tried this foundation?

3. Smashbox Full Exposure *travel size* Eyeshadow Palette.

I´ve been wanting this palette for ages, but I never justified getting it.
Apparently all it took was it to be "travel size" and then it was okay. And that it was on sale.
The palette is very pretty and it is perfect for summer and holiday. It is small and takes up minimal space. And that IS a really good argument for getting it, if you look away from the fact that I will be bringing this small, cute, practical and perfect palette ALONG with I guess at least two other normal sized ones.... So the point is sadly not there for me.. BUT is has some beautiful shades and I would love to do a swatch for you :)

4. Guerlain Terracotta Kohl Loose Powder #Noir

This is an old favorite of mine. I´ve had this for years, but one day the application tool broke inside the bottle and it was impossible to use (still with a lot of product inside). I never purchased a new one because of the simple fact, it is pretty expensive, but this one was at least 50% off so I just had to get it :D

It is easy to use and it last for hours. the "wand" makes it easy to create a "cat eye" and the packaging is simply gorgeous.


I love haul posts, so if you´ve done any purchases recently please leave your links and I will have a look!

New in! GHD V Classic Hair Straightener Kit

I was in need for a new hair straightener as my old one decided to die on me. It was a super sad day when it went away because the straightener that I had was simply amazing, it even had real swarovski crystals on it and it was a dream to use.

There´s nothing like a good quality hair straightener so I was super happy when I came across this offer. This kit has the same price as the straightener alone!

I love GHD straighteners and it is so much better for my hair than the cheap ones you can get everywhere... This is serious! There is a clear difference. 
What do you think?

GHD V Gold Classic Styler
GHD V Gold Classic Styler

I got the classic styler, paddle brush (sooo pretty!), two sectioning clips and a bottle of heat protectant.
I´ve tried the heat protectant a few times, but I don´t really know what to say about it yet.. I don´t think I´m a huge fan.

It smells a little like male perfume and my hair does not get soft at all... It might be the fine texture of my hair, just not making it suitable for me. 

The paddle brush is super nice and so good. Heat protectant or not, it was a pretty good deal!

The classic gold styler is suitable for all types of hair and lengths, which is nice for me because of my super thin/fine short natural hair, and for when I wear thick long extensions :)

It heats up in a matter of seconds, ready to use! You can´t choose how high or low you want the temperature, and that might be a con if you need to protect your hair a bit extra. I feel that is the only thing that annoys me with this. 

My hair is very damaged at the moment and I feel every time I use the heat styler I damage my hair more because of the high heat. I try to be careful with heat tools in general, but in the end it is not that simple to stay away! I am currently treating my hair with a lot of proteins and trying to not straighten my hair too often.

What type/brand of hair straightener do you use/is your favorite?
