This weekend I was away in Stockholm for work and also to celebrate my friends birthday. Before heading back home we stopped by Mall of Scandinavia.
A girl named Sanna, from Lyko.se, a swedish beauty online store, contacted me to send me makeup from a brand I’ve never heard of before. It’s called MIYO and it’s a swedish brand founded in 2012.
Like I mentioned I had never heard of the brand before so of course I had to google it. Didn’t find much on it at all. Only a Facebook page and that MIYO stands for; My Identity, Yourfully Original.
As it is Christmas Eve and we are going to a party tonight I will try all the products and will let you know what I think of it in a post in the new few days.
Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you’re all with your loved ones this holiday season.
Most of you know by now that Primark has it’s own range of beauty products. And while I was in London I picked up a few pieces to try. Especially because I had read that they were good.
Among other things I got this 8 HOUR DEEP HYDRATING CREAM with argan oil. And let me tell you, it’s really good. Or should I say, was really good because I’ve run out of it. In the winter time I get dry patches, especially my cheeks and putting this cream on before going to bed every night has really helped. I usually use a Nivea face cream that I love but this Primark one, considering the price, was pretty good too.
I know people always say if the price is high the quality is better and I just want to point out that that isn’t always the case.
Do you have any budget tips? What is something I need to try?
I picked up this Bourjois compact powder about 10 days ago and I already feel like it’s gonna be a must have for me in the months to come. The description of it got me;
THE SILK EDITION POWDER BLURS IMPERFECTIONS & MATTIFIES THE SKIN FOR A FLAWLESS FINISH.
Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Well let me tell you that it actually does that for me. I do use it over my liquid foundation to se it and remove the moist feeling. I can truly recommend this for everyone looking for a compact that looks natural. If you want something that covers more this isn’t for you. I for example, who does get red patches every now and then couldn’t use it as the base on my face.
The packaging is super cool
Let me know if you’ve tried it and what you think…!
While on a cruise to Finland with my sister and best friend I picked up a Dior eyeliner, the Diorshow Pro Liner in the color Pro Brown. I’m not very good at applying liner. I know some of you ladies might recognize yourself in that statement. So, as my friend and I were choosing a color we both went for the brown one as it looked a bit more natural. I use this line on both my upper lid and my lower lash line and it works good for me. It does smudge a little but I don’t mind because all it does is look more natural as there is no harsh line.
What is your favorite liner ladies?
D for design
Of course we did a bit of shopping while away. I picked up a beautiful muovo pouch.
I also picked up a Dior liner, that I’m loving after only using it for a few days.
A bit of a splurge on the cruise was this Swarovski pen,that I picked up after a late night trip tp the tax free store after a few glasses of wine.

Summer fave – NYX Matte lipstick
This NYX lipstick in MLS04 Pale Pink has been a favorite all summer long.
How are you all!?
I’m just stopping by to say hello. I’ve been trying to get everything ready for when I’m away on vacation in the next few weeks, therefore the absence.
This weekend I got to spend some quality time with some of my fave before we all split up and head in different directions. Actually, while writing that last sentence I realized I get to see them when we are away as well.
Three weeks in Bosnia and Croatia is what I’m looking forward too…
What are you guys doing this summer. Are you traveling.
I’ve finally tried NYX makeup and I love it. A few days ago my order arrived and since then I’ve been using the products. I must admit that I’m pleasantly surprised.
I’m super excited right now as I’ve just ordered my first order of NYX makeup.
