Spring in the air

Have I mentioned I love spring?

The sun is finally peeking out and it is giving me life.

Picnic in the Park

This is my makeup of the weekend. And I literally mean it, I wore it Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I mean I took it off at night and put it on every morning. I like my shades of pink and this look it super pretty for spring.

I’m wearing the Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in Maui. My cousin gave this to me, last summer during her wedding weekend.

And on my lips I’m wearing a Tanya Burr lipgloss, Picnic in the Park, I picked this up in London last summer.

Sleek Catrice

I love spring, it’s my favorite season of the year. I like it less because of pollen and allergies. Yesterday I couldn’t understand the headache I was having. This morning I woke up with puffy eyes and then I got it, it’s allergy season.

To try to cover up the puffiness I did my makeup in a hurry before heading to work.

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 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? 



Chipmunk cheeks!!!

I’ve gotten the question about my cheeks quite a few times. What do I do and how do I contour. To be honest, I don’t! I don’t know how to contour that well…I just apply bronzer on my cheekbones. And they become defined like this. Of course it’s not all make up. It comes from my dads side of the family, my sister and a few of my cousins have them as well. Some more than others.

LOTD : Reflecting Bloom

IMG_5188

My lip combo today is Lumene Natural Code lipstick in the shade 3 Nude Beige with IsaDora Express Star gloss over it, it’s in the shade 54 Reflecting Bloom. I have the full size version but I like the travel size better because it’s easy to bring along for touch ups during the day.

Flaws and all

Today has been a super busy day! Started my work day before 7AM and left the office around 6PM. Just in time to go home and change before a special screening of The Boy Next Door. It wasn’t the best movie I’ve seen, actually it was only ok.
After the movies I got my hair done as I’m traveling in a few days and I wanted fresh color. Still a red head!
Since coming home I’ve been packing the makeup I’m bringing with me and some clothes. Nowhere near to being done anytime soon! I mean I have to pack tomorrow so it might be a late night…

Good night!

 I want to tell you guys about this H&M lipstick that is amazing considering the price. It’s only 3.99 pounds but really great quality.

H&M came out with these matte lipsticks not to long ago and just last week I picked up the nude shade that goes by the name Beige/Bardot. I’m in love with it and I’m going to pick up at least one more shade, there are four.

You should check it out.
