Since I had painted my nails a light pink, and I was kinda bored of it, I decided to freshen them up with this newspaper print ! (Unfortunately you can’t see it very well on this picture, I took it with Photo Booth.)
And they are suprisingly really easy to do !
If you want to learn how to do them, check out Taylor’s post right here!
Clinique long last glosswear SPF 15GuavagoldIt really is long lasting. I have two of these glosses and they last a long time without getting too sticky or tingly. This one has a gorgeous pink color that I like wearing when I'm wearing a darker eye.
Cover Girl lash blast volume in very black This is my favorite mascara of all times! I love the wand! It doesn't create lumps, goes on really smooth and gives me really full lashes.
So those were a couple of my April favorites! Anything new that I should try that you really love?
Burt's Bees Honey lip balmThis is the lip balm that I take everywhere with me! It's really moisturizing and is 100% natural. (and it works great under lipstick)
At some point, my lips were really chapped. I thought I had tried everything until I tried this! It healed my lips completely. It's simply amazing.
C.O. Bigelow Rose SalveI love the glossy finish it leaves on my lips! It smells really good and is moisturizing. (And I love that it's in a cute tin. It says that it's also for cuticles, elbows, face and knees!) The only inconvenient is that it isn't long lasting.
The Body Shop Papaya Lip Butter It's the creamiest, buttery and most nourishing lip balm (actually, lip butter) that I have ever tried! It's long lasting and I love the scent of it. This winter I wore it a lot when I went outside and it kept my lips moisturized for a long time.
(Unfortunately I couldn't find it on the Body Shop website, so I don't know if they still make it. But you can get the Mango Lip Butter or the Shea butter one.)
So those are my three favorite lip balms! Does anyone know of any other wonderful ones?
- OPI polish in Big Hair... Big Nails, they describe it as "a rose pageant peach" (I would describe it as a bright coral-y version of red). It's from the Texas collection, has a sorbet-like finish and goes on really smooth.
-H&M nail polish in Check Me Out, a bright pink. It's quite bright, so I like to wear it on my feet.
-Revlon nail polish in 914 Tropical Temptation, a coral color. I like to wear it on both my hands or feet. Revlon polishes are good quality and affordable.
-Estee Lauder lipstick in Venetian Rose, a gorgeous shade of pink that's great for spring and summer. I love wearing it by itself or under the lipgloss. It has a wonderful creamy texture and stays on a long time.
-Beauty Rush lipgloss(from Victoria's Secret) in Delicious Red. I love this lipgloss!! It's shimmery, but the glittery flakes are quite small and I can't even feel them on my lips. And it smells amazing! The only inconvenience is that it's quite sticky.
P.S. Sorry about the quality of the picture, I took it with my iPod, so the colors aren't exact.
Recently I've been seeing so many florals on the runway. I love this trend! And it's perfect for the spring time. Florals stand out, they don't need a lot of accessories and they are easy to pull off. So I went out and picked up a couple items.
I got the floral dress from LaRedoute. I thought that I could wear a jeans jacket (or vest) or a long black cardigan over it.
I got the pair of shorts and the tank from a local shop. I wore the black tank top with my black boyfriend blazer and a pair of jeans. I'm not quite sure what to wear with the shorts yet. Maybe a striped shirt or my blazer. Any suggestions?
I got the umbrella from H&M, but I bought it a while ago and don't know if it's still available. It adds a fun pop of color to any outfit on a rainy day!
The necklace comes fromH&M. It has a floral detail on the heart part of it. (and it's a locket too!)
Anyway, those were a couple of my picks for the floral trend. And I'm sorry about the quality of the pictures, I had to take them with my iPod.
I also found this vintage (well, it's not quite vintage) jewelry box at a thrift store the other day. Isn't it cute?

Hello to everyone out there!
I'm just another girl that loves everything fashion and beauty related. I love reading InStyle, Vogue, Elle or Seventeen magazine while sipping a cup of tea, shopping with my friends or spending time with family.
I love taking walks in the rain, listening to the birds sing and the sweet smell of flowers in the spring,
Roasting marshmallows on the fire and having the warm summer breeze sweep through my hair,
I love when the trees turn yellow and red, and the sound of the leaves dancing in the wind,
And waking up to a white blanket covering the lawn and the fire crackling in the chimney.
