Hi there! :) Long time no see, right? I believe we all know I’ve accumulated quite a lot of make up and skin care products in the past few months, but today I’ll focus on what I got for my birthday in terms of make up and accessories in June! My boyfriend, family and my friends know me so well, but I am somehow predictable, that’s for sure! ;)
Now I can finally say I understand why a lot of people rave about the Lush Bubblegum lip scrub! It tastes JUST as bubble gums I used to chew as a kid, and the texture itself is amazing. Finely ground sugar is the key to success for scrubbing off the excess skin to an extent I have never experienced before. You definitely have to try it out! ♥ Next I got the L’Oréal’s La Couleur eye shadow in shade Metallic Lilac (037). This is a highly pigmented eye shadow with a metallic finish that is very flattering to my brown eye color. However, I do have to get used to it, as my usual eye shadows consist of earth tones.
My nail polish drawer is already full, but I’ll have to find some space for these three nail polishes in one way or another. First I got the Deborah Milano nail polish with gel effect in shade 07. I haven’t tried this one out yet, but I have high hopes because it provides an ultra glossy result. And I love red nails, so this one will be high on my list! ♥ And now here is my favorite part: I got two gel nail polishes!! I bought a UV lamp last month and have been using it almost all the time ever since. I’ll write a separate post about it soon, but let me just say that I love it! So, I got the Sensationail gel color in shade love bite, a gorgeous rosy pink color, and the Depend‘s nail polish in shade french white. ♥ Another favorite must be these gold temporary tattoos! I actually got two sheets with different motives, but I couldn’t find the second one, whoops :D I love them, they were on my wish list for a long time, but I never saw them in stores. I’m currently wearing one, you can check it out on my Instagram profile here. It looked as new for four days, but now it wore out a bit. Can’t wait to use them on holidays!! ♥ Another gorgeously scented item is a salt and seaweed soap by the Piran Saltpans. I haven’t tried it out yet, but I can’t wait to start using it, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it a lot.
Last but not least, I got a gorgeous scarf with a deep violet print that will be great to wear on top in summer evenings and a beautiful necklace with gold and red beads. And of course, I cannot forget my new favorite vintage ring that I actually chose myself on a flea market and my lovely boyfriend kindly bought for me. It’s made of silver and has a gorgeous turquoise-black stone in it. Love!
I’m really sorry for the lack of posts in the past month, I had lots of exams and was too tense to enjoy writing and taking pictures. Luckily, I passed all of them and can enrol into the second cycle of my master’s studies, I’m so excited!! It definitely is quite frightening when I think about my last year of studies, but I’m nevertheless full of optimism about what the future will bring. Yay!
