Strawberry Macarons in pictures

My sister’s friend had a bachelorette party on Friday and since I’m a super cool younger sister, I was invited too! ;) For this occasion, I decided to make macarons, although I completely failed the first time a few months ago. I thoroughly interrogated my friend about her recipe and Macarons No. 2. were much more successful! It took me 4 hours to make 30 macarons, but I’m still completely thrilled about them :) They were not perfect and I will make them again in the next few weeks. Then I’ll show you the recipe that will (hopefully) be a success. I can nevertheless show you some pictures from the making process and the final product.

V petek je imela sestrina prijateljica dekliščino in ker sem super kul mlajša sestra, sem bila povabljena tudi jaz! ;) Za to priložnost sem se odločila, da po prvem porazu delanja macaronsov pred nekaj meseci ponovno poskusim. Prijateljico sem podrobno izprašala o njenem receptu in Macaronsi No. 2 so veliko bolje uspeli! Sicer sem 30 macaronsov delala skoraj 4 ure, vendar sem popolnoma navdušena :) Niso bili ravno popolni, bom pa v naslednjih tednih ponovno poskusila in vam predstavila recept, ki bo (upam) resnično uspel. Vseeno pa vam lahko pokažem nekaj slik iz priprave in končni izdelek.

Essie Big Spender

IMG_0404

My Essie nail polish in the shade Big Spender has been complimented so many times until now. Although the color itself is not that special at all, it is the intensity of the polish that captures attention. The nail polish is completely opaque after the first application. However, I cannot speak about how long the polish lasts, since all polishes chip off the next day despite using a base coat (and top coat). I especially like to match the polish with my Revlon lipstick in the shade Fucsia. Both have already been mentioned in my April Favorites post.

Essie lak za nohte v odtenku Big Spender je že večkrat požel pohvale mnogih deklet. Čeprav barva sama po sebi ni tako posebna, je po mojem mnenju intenzivnost tista, ki vzbuja pozornost. Lak je že z enim nanosom popolnoma prekriven, njegove obstojnosti pa žal ne morem preceniti, saj se laki z mojih nohtov kljub nanosu podlaka (in nadlaka) po enem dnevu pričnejo krušiti. Lak najraje kombiniram z Revlonovo šminko v barvi Fucsia, obe pa sem omenila že v aprilski objavi o najljubših stvareh meseca.

Now I’m off to finish the strawberry macarons with chocolate filling. I really hope that I finally succeed today because they were extremely bad the last time :D I will keep you posted about the results later! Have a lovely Friday ♥

Zdaj pa grem dokončat jagodne macaronse s čokoladnim polnilom. Resnično upam, da so mi danes končno uspeli, ker so bili nazadnje prav žalostno slabi :D O rezultatih poročam kasneje! Prijeten petek želim ♥

MUA blusher

I’ve had this blusher for a few months and I haven’t used it just because I wanted to show you how pretty it is brand new. Well, I failed to keep the promise to myself and have started using it a few weeks ago :) The blusher (shade 2) comes in a pretty plastic container that looks quite durable (but we’ll see about that when it falls down for the first time!). It has an apricot-y shade when used in small amounts and becomes really pink when applied in more coats. The shade is much less intense on my picture than in reality, but aren’t colors are always different on pictures? :)

To rdečilo imam že nekaj mesecev in ga nisem uporabljala ravno zato, da vam pokažem, kako lepo je, ko je novo. No, to mi ni uspelo, saj ga pridno uporabljam že nekaj tednov :) Rdečilo (odtenek 2) je v prikupni majhni posodici iz plastike in deluje precej močno (oz. bom več o tem vedela, ko mi bo prvič padlo na tla!). V majhnih količinah je marelične barve, če pa ga uporabim malo več, takoj postane močneje roza. Na moji sliki je namreč precej manj močno kot je v resnici, pa saj so barve na slikah vedno malo drugačne :)

The blusher is a little bit shimmery, just the way I like it, and contains its matt texture in bigger amounts. Overall, I really like that I can build the color gradually. Besides, the blush is long lasting, which comes in handy in summer.

Rdečilo se, tako kot je meni všeč, malenkost sveti, vendar tudi v večjih količinah ohrani močno matirano teksturo. Če povzamem, všeč mi je, da se lahko barvo z več nanosi nadgradi. Poleg tega je rdečilo zelo dolgo obstojno in res primerno za poletje.
