Seventeen’s makeup essentials palette is a limited edition one, that includes 3 types of products in it: 3 Bronzing/contouring powders (a light, a warm and a dark one), 2 blushes (one pink and one peachy), and one highlighter in champagne color. It’s a really nice palette with beautiful colors, and packaging, with a nice big mirror, and it closes magnetically. The contour powders have nice warm colors, while the blushes and the highlighter are easy to use and perfect for your everyday makeup looks. I’ve been using this for the past month or so, and I love it. It costs around 30 euros, and you can find it in Greece, and other countries where Seventeen Cosmetics sells its products (it’s a Greek brand).
A few months back, I shared with you my shoe collection, and I always had in my mind to do a similar post to show you my nail polish collection. It all begun 2 years ago, when I threw away all of my nail polishes which had gone bad. Then, I found some amazing brands and I started collecting new colors. Although, nail polishes are not something you can keep for years, like you can with shoes, I really like the colors I have so far, so I don’t think I’m going to buy many more in the near future. Today I present to you my collection of nail polishes together with some recommendations, and favorites I have. Enjoy!
I’ve been seeing some of these manicures on the internet for a long time now, and I’m really impressed with how it looks. Having something like this as an inspiration, I decided to give it a try myself. Of course I’m not a manicurist so there wasn’t much chance that I would make it look, at least, similar to that one, but I kind of liked the result. It was the first time I tried something like this, so you can call this “a how to guide for amateurs like me”.
No actually I don’t. Cause that would be weird. In fact I didn’t have my sunglasses with me and that’s why I, once again, pasted my cartoonish sunglasses on my face. I’m sure you know by now that I never reveal my whole face on the internet. Call me weird or suspicious, but I still have some boundaries about giving away my personal info, even though I’ve already given away too much by creating this blog, and furthermore by posting photos of myself and my outfits on the internet. Eyes are the windows to the soul, they say, and there are not only good people out there. You never know. Anyway, no offense to those of you who do reveal your faces, I don’t have a problem with that of course, do as you please. It’s only MY weirdness.
So, moving on to the outfit part, these pics were taken almost about a week ago, on a cold, windy night, and I needed to wear something to keep me warm. That’s why I went with a more casual/cozy outfit, giving emphasis on the shoes by letting them be the star of the outfit.
A few days ago, when the weather turned chilly, I decided to dig out of my closet a really old jacket, I almost never wore. I had it on my mind for months because of its color, but summer in Greece rarely allows you to wear a jacket, even a thin one. So, I found it in my closet, I liked it, I tried it on, and it fitted me. Couldn’t believe that something that I bought more than 10 years ago still fitted me! So I wore it with pride to a night out with friends.
