Demure

I promised some of you I’d do a swatch of my New Fave and here it is…

As you can see it looks much more natural on the lips than the swatch itself. I highly recommend this product and can’t wait to get a hold of some of the other colors.

Misc: In the beginning, every time I put it on I could smell/taste peppermint. Sure enough it contains peppermint oil. And I like it! It tastes a bit like Carmex.

New everything!!!

As some of you have noticed I’ve been trying out a few different layouts in the recent months. I needed a change but couldn’t really decide what I wanted my blog to look like. I’m over the pink and the I wanted something white, classic and simple. And I think I’ve found just that! I like this new design, a lot! I think I can stick with this for a while therefore I also ordered new business cards.

What do you guys think?

New fave

Ladies, I have a new favorite everyday lip product.

And it a Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in 105 Demure.

colorburst

I picked it up in Boots at Victoria Station when I was in London and I’ve been wearing it pretty much every single day since.

It’s very moisturizing and I like the shine to it. And the color of the packaging is very cute as well.

A weekend of love

I texted my mom and dad late Friday afternoon about them coming to visit me and they did. We spent a great evening together friday and Saturday we went shopping and to visit the grandparents. 

Today I woke up before 7AM to get ready for a fun filled day in the swedish capital, Stockholm. A mere 1 h and 20 minutes later Dina and I were arriving at the station. 

After a lunch meeting we went to a APU Network association dinner celebrating the Bosnian Independence Day. Because Dina is traveling tomorrow and I have a week full of meetings we had to get on a train back home at 7.30. The evening was a great success though! We got to meet some very successful and interesting people. Aida Hadžialić being on of them. She is a Swedish politician and the Minister of Education. At 28 she is the youngest minister Swedish history and she just happenes to be Bosnian aswell. 

What did you guys do?

Moving to London

I’ve been offered a job in London! The same guy has been calling me for the last two years. The job itself is great although it requires me to travel up to three times a week, within Europe. And I just don’t know if I’m OK with that. I’m 30 now, I feel like it’s time for me to settle down and be in one place. Moving to London and having to travel that much just means I won’t be. I’d be on a plane and at work more than home. A lot of my relationships suffer from me being away, even now. I don’t get to see my family and friends nearly as much as I’d like too.

Yet I feel like I need a challenge in life, to keep things spicy and interesting for me…

It’s another teeth chatteringly fresh morning here in N. Ireland *hurry up summer* as I’m currently clutching a steaming mug of hot sweet tea, curled up in Confetti & Curves HQ, ready for a full day of writing!
