In love with ... Denim for Spring!

1-IMG_4003

It has warmed up considerably these past days and it was time to get into Spring mode. I recently thrifted this awesome denim shirt (which Mr.B altered for me!) and just had to combine it with some lace. Hope to remix this often these next months.

Beauty - Top 3 Make up palettes

It has been a while since I posted my last beauty post, but that doesn't mean that I don't like make up anymore. I was once again inspired by Diana and her blog I need sunshine. She asked other bloggers to share some beauty favourites. This time it is make up palettes, my absolute favourite topic to date!!

Meine-Top-3-Lidschatten-Paletten

I actually have to say that I only have 6 palettes at home, so picking the 3 favourites wasn't so tricky, but it is still a topic that I have hoped to share for a while. I often step away from buying palettes as they generally don't fit my needs. I do appreciate sparkly shades, but also use some matte tones for the outer corners and it has been quite difficult to find good palettes that fit all those needs. The 3 pieces that I picked also rather stand for the brand and a lot of their palettes in general.

3rd runner up - Sleek Vintage Romance

It was one of my first palettes and I am still totally in love with the color scheme, the intensity of the shades and the quality in general. Sleek is one of my favourite brands when it comes to high pigmented shades (and blushes as well). I don't like a lot of their color combinations in the palettes though. Often I like only some and the others would be unused. That's the main reason why I haven't bought more than two (the other one is Storm).

2nd runner up - Urban Decay Naked 3

I have been eying this palette from the moment I spotted it on Instagram in Fall 2013. It was the perfect palette for me. Rose and golden tones, subtle colors and the raved about quality. Some time in Spring 2014, I finally bought this beauty and have used it all the time ever since. I do love most of the shades. I have some issues with Dust and Trick as they give quite some fallout when applied dry, but of course they are beautiful. Blackheart is the darkest shade and I just rarely have the need for such a deep tone. I've almost hit the pan with some tones already, I guess that says it all! I also own the Naked Basics 2 and am still thinking about the original Naked palette, BUT I recently discovered my number 1 and this might actually make the Urban Decay palettes unneeded.

1st - Makeup Revolution Naked Chocolate 

I recently read about Makeup Revolution, a low budget makeup company that has managed to launch several palettes that are great dupes for bigger brands. I do love me a good original, but when I can get something a little cheaper with similar quality, I do try it out. I think the Naked Chocolate palette should be a dupe for the Too Faced Chocolate Bars. They are not easily attainable in Europe and this cheap version really does the work just fine for me. The first palette where I have used and love ALL shades. That says something about the product. Since buying it in January, I've rarely used other shades.

Also check out the other participants over at Diana's blog or still share your own choices there or here with me. Any tips for my next palette?

Goodbye old love ... hello new friend!

1-IMG_3776

It has been a long search and it hurt to say goodbye, but we had to finally get ourselves a new ride. Last November, someone hit our rear at a traffic light and it turned out to be a damage that couldn't be repaired. I wore this outfit on our last drive to the car retailer. We exchanged our old buddy, the grey cat, for our new white tiger and I had a stressy, but nice last drive in this look. You can see the scarf and Cardigan are current favourites and had a heck of a lot outings these past posts! I gotta remix.

What I love right now - No. 3/2015

This week, staying at home with my back problems made me enjoy the little things even more. I'd like to share those things with you.

I treated myself to this Rituals gift set and have been really happy with the smell of the Sakura collection. Especially the body oil and shower foam has been great!

Happy sunrises - currently I can actually watch the sunrises on my way to work. I just love it when the days get longer again.

Take me on a spin

1-IMG_3669

Do you know this feeling when you have wanted to wear a particular piece in your closet for quite some time, but the moment just never seemed right, the weather didn't work to your advantage or you just didn't have the right occasion for the look?! Well, this is what happened to my lovely vintage cape. I adore this piece of clothing and I'd love to wear it more often, but I often struggle adding it to a look. Now it finally warmed up enough and I could take it out again. Mr.B calls it my Badman cape btw or Bad Anja in this sense and I really love playing around with it. The other colors seem to be on constant rotation right now, just because they scream Spring to me and brighten up my day!
