Bored? My Online Favorites!

Hello there! I've been online shopping A LOT lately and found that there are so many online stores that people don't seem to mention very often. I mean I love all the Asos and Romwe out there, however, I thought I might should introduce you to some of my favorites!

I know, starting off with a rather popular option is kind of wrong. But I love Nelly. It's pretty much like asos but from Scandinavia! They have amazing dresses and very stylish pieces. You can never do wrong with buying things from Nelly!

Another brand from Scandinavia! I love the clothes from Chiquelle! Their pieces are somewhere between Grunge and Hipster and I am obsessed with their collor necklaces! No I'm not even kidding when I say, I would buy all of them!

Gina Tricot has always been one of my favorite stores. However, not everyone has them in their city, which is why I highly recommend to visit their online website! Their pieces go from bohemian chic, to rock chic, to simple. They are very affordable and they even have an own cosmetic line! Unfortunetely you can only order when you are from Europe.

I fell in love with Bershka ever since I came back from my last trip to Paris last summer! I just love their clothes, especially their tops! You can also order from everywhere in the world unless you live in the states (That might be the first time I get to say that haha)

So hopefully you found this somewhat helpful! Did you know all/any of these stores? 
Of course I also like to go shopping in stores like Zara, Forever 21, Topshop and H&M but I thought this would be more interesting to you than talking about stores that you know for sure!

Almost fatal day / Addition to Wishlist

Hello you guys! I know I've been very unproductive lately, which will change tomorrow :) I will post more as long as I don't write my A-levels! I promise!

So now it's supposed to be spring...haha not over here! When I woke up I didn't even see a bit of snow but as soon as me and my friends started our trip into another city to go to the movies...oh the car started to slip to the left and right, I even ran a red light because the breaks wouldn't work! So now this is a scary experience for a person who's only been driving without her parents for one full month! And when I drove my friend to her boyfriend's house I literally felt like jumping out of the car and yelling "HOW ON EARTH CAN SOMEONE LIVE HERE?!" There was so much snow my car just wouldn't drive straightforward! No of course it would always come closer to the trees! Never in my life I have been this terrified!

Now that this is off my chest, I've been looking through the make up stores with my friends and I eventually found that the Artdeco Glam Deluxe Eyeshadows suit to my prom dress perfectly. They are so pigmented and pretty! And the best, they lasted on my handback as long as the Maybelline Color Tatoos, which is a long long time! This definetely belongs to my wish list haha

Thank you so much for reading! I soon will reply to the following requests! xx Andrea

Hello there!! I'm so so so so (...) sorry that I left my blog carelessly in the rain for 4 full days! But I've been busy with my last school week and spent as much time as possible with the lovely people from my school! It's scary how fast time flies by and even more scary when you walk home with your friends and turn around for the last time...Well it technically isn't since I will have to go back for the A-Level exams but it was the last normal school day.

Anyways! now to the important thing! I've been nominated by the lovely Accent Girl 100 for a Versatile Blogger Award ! Thank you so much! I know it is very late and kind of ironic that I would receive an award now but Thank you! I've completely forgotten about these ever since I have left the world of creating websites when I was 15 haha

Rule #5: 7 Things about me: 

For Accent Girl 100 who nominated me! Thank you!

6. I hate doing sports and working out even though I used to do ballet, swimming, gymnastic and dancing. However I still like to go swimming and play hockey and wish I would have continued on doing gymnastics.

7. I am easily fascinated. Even by the things that are considered as boring such as history or science. No lie!

At this point I would like to thank all the people for getting through this super long post haha Thank you so much for nominating me Accent Girl 100 (I'm sorry but I couldn't find out your real name :( ) This is such a fun game!

Rimmel Haul Part III: Eyes

Hello you guys! how are you doing?
As I've told you this was going to be my last week of school. However I didn't go to school today because all of my classes have been cancelled. I still considered to go but since I've found that taking pictures for 5 minutes wasn't worth the effort of finding a costume I didn't go. Big mistake. Today has been the day where we were going to prank the teachers and even better do the harlem shake all together. Great, I missed it.

Anyways, here's the third part!

It's bigger than the other ones and focuses on eye-products. I am going to start of with the mascaras.

1.The Max Bold Curves Mascara
When I tried this first I wasn't too impressed. It gets clumpy after the second coat. However it makes your lashes look super long. And I am saying this as a Maybelline False Lashes user! I cannot use this product on it's own but in combination with other mascaras this one is perfect. It has a huge brush, which I love haha. Especially for my lashes in the outer corner of my eye!

2. Sexy Curves Intense Black Mascara
Now this one is an amazing product! Since my lashes are pretty straight and short I've always had a hard time finding mascaras that would hold the curl. This is the very first non-waterproof which fulfills this. It has a unique looking brush with ...welll I don't know how to describe it haha it's bumpy! The best is probably that it gives your lashes volume and makes them look kind of healthy and glossy, ergo it makes your eyes appear more awake and bright! This is probably going to be my very first drugstore mascara I'll be repurchasing!

3. Glam' Eyes Mono Eye Shadow #130 "Tribute"
It's a kind of purple-silverish-plum color haha I don't know how to describe it. But I instantly fell in love with the color. It's very pigmented and the prettiest color I've ever seen!

4. Glam' Eyes HD Quad Eyeshadow #005 "English Rose"
I thought this looked very interesting. Not only because of the Union Jack but also because of the color-combination. The colors are kind of redish-brown and I am super excited for trying these on my eyes!

5. Glam' Eyes Trio Eyeshadow #621 "Orion"
I didn't notice this one was called Orion in the drugstore. haha Orion is my favorite constellation and since it stands for hunters the colors now make sense. They are very natural earth-tones. I purchased this because of the matte colors, which I prefer using for everyday eye make-up.

Now that's it for now. I really hope you enjoyed my Rimmel Haul and found it somehow helpful. I love their products. They are not too pricey but of great quality!

The Beginning of the End + Fooood

Hello there! I hope you all had a great day!
My very last week of school has begun and over here we have the tradition to celebrate this by dressing upto each day's theme.
Today's theme has been "Grandma & Grandpa". Now my costume didn't look too exciting, I looked like a charlady haha It was fun though! I've been taking tons of pictures with all the people. It's kind of painful to see how time is flying by so fast. I can't believe I'm saying this but I really don't want school to end. I even consider going to school on wednesday even though I won't have any classes haha just to spend the last few hours with everyone!
Tomorrow's motto is going to be "Pirates"! I'm super excited for that because I LOOOOVE Pirates of the Carribean and I LOVE Keira Knightley! I'm not sure whether this would interest you haha but I might will post some pictures

I'm sorry that this post is not really beauty related. But I've been busy with surviving my pre-a-level exams, and now that they've turned out better than I thought I finally found some time to relax haha.
I will post my third part of my Rimmel Haul tomorrow.

My friend cooked some yummmi dinner today :) chicken and beans, feta cheese salad and ice cream! it was delicious and great to finally spend some time with the girls.

I know this wasn't very useful. But maybe you will get some inspiration for what to eat tonight? xx

Rimmel Haul Part II: Face

Hello there!! as I've promised here the Second part of my rimmel haul a few days ago :)

It is going to be about the "Face"-products I've purchased and (unfortunetely) only includes 2 products again. These two are truly amazing and are very useful though, so stay tuned! I promise the third and last part will be alot bigger!

1. STAY MATTE Foundation (201 Classic Beige)
It supposedly contains "chamomille to calm, cucumber to help clarify and cotton to help shine control". These three ingredients are honestly said the main reason why I purchased this foundation because I have super oily skin and ingredients like cucumber and chamomille (also green tea by the way!) help a lot to mattify your skin and keep the oil production under control. It is very light and almost feels (and also the package looks) like a BB-Cream. It gives a lot more coverage though (picture below!) and lasts for hours. I think it's perfect for summer when it's too hot to use a heavy foundation because your skin produces too much oil.

2. NATURAL BRONZER (021 Sun Light)
Now this bronzer is VERY true to its name. If you are looking for something that would make your face look sunkissed without looking overbronzed this product is perfect for you. I like to apply this bronzer with my kabuki-brush and just contour my face. You can't even see that you are wearing bronzer, yet your face will look contoured and  naturally sunkissed, which I think is very important when you wear bright lipsticks. Being overbronzed and wearing a bright lipstick could make you look like a potential candidate for jersey shore *cough* I really love using this for my face and add a darker bronzer on my cheeks to contour the cheekbones. It also has SPF :)

I just realized I've been wearing this shirt everytime I take pictures haha but no seriously it's not the only outfit I own! don't worry! :D

I hope this post was somewhat helpful :) ! Are you going to try these two babies? Also don't forget to check out Part I..Click HERE

Rimmel Haul Part I: Lips

Hello there!!! How are you doing?
 I've been to the drugstores for a rimmel sale!
As I've promised I now am going to introduce my haul to you. However, I am going to do that sperated in three parts: Lips, Face and then Eyes.

Today's post: Lips
Now I didn't buy many lip products. In fact I've only purchased two lipsticks. But they are truly amazing! I love them! I'm sorry I forgot to take pictures before I tried them at home :(

 1. Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick #16
Smells of raspberry. Looks like raspberries. I love raspberries haha When you google this shade you would find that it looks more like a coral lipstick. But it really doesn't. It's more of a bright pink with a slight coral touch. It's a gorgeous matte lipstick. Perfect for spring and summer.

2. Lasting Finish Lipstick #206 NUDE PINK
Now this shade doesn't really look like a nude color on my arm, rather like a beautiful rosegold. But when you apply it on your lips it looks quite natural. But since it has a slight shimmer it's very eyecatching at the same time. I have no idea how to describe this haha You will have try it yourself. It's really pretty. And this is coming from a nude-lipstick-hater. I tend to think of them as very unnatural since lips always have some color and simply don't look like skin. I love this one though!

What do you think? Do you like the colors? :) I hope you all had a great day xxx

I bougt a Prom Dress!

Hellooooo there! How is everybody doing? I had such a great day because the sun came out, I only had school for an hour and spent the entire day downtown with my mom NOT wearing a coat! omg yes and it was heaven! Finally the sun came back!

So we've been looking for a prom dress and I didn't even think I would find one, we just walked into the store and the shop assistant looked at me and knew exactly what dress would suit me. I swear I've never seen such an enthusiastic shop assistant haha well except for the American ones. Even though I had plenty of options I eventually picked her first choice. Honestly I never would've tried this on, it just didn't look like the dresses in my vision haha but it was perfect! She also picked me some shoes and earrings.

From the shoes and the clutch you can guess what color my dress will have. So now you are wondering where is the picture of the dress? haha There is none... Unfortunetely I couldn't take a picture because they kept the dress for a fitting. However, she told me to keep it a secret to have an extra wow-effect. So I guess I am going to keep it, even from my friends. Sorry! :( Did YOU get to buy your prom dress yet?

We went to the drugstore later then and there was a Rimmel sale OMG YES A RIMMEL SALE. I bought some things which I will introduce you to in another post. I got seduced by all the Rimmel products...sneaky evil Rimmel products! :( now all my money is gone

Pamper Evening for One!

Good evening! or night :) Did you have a stressfull week? Same here!
So I wanted to do this post yesterday but I just couldn't make it yesterday, I'm sorry.

If you don't know what a pamper evening is, it simply is a very relaxing evening where you can treat yourself with good things. You usually do that in groups but it's also good on your own.
Now that I am officially done with writing my exams and I won't write any more until my A-Levels, which is in a month, I now and then "force" myself to just let go of all my duties and relax.

1. The Body Shop CRANBERRY JOY Shower Gel
    I usually take a bath but when I don't have the time to I like to use these for a shower. The fruity cranberry
    scent is perfect for when you feel tired and drained.

2. THE BODY SHOP Cranberry Joy Body Lotion
    So now this is extremely shimmery, which I hate. But it smells like heaven! The scent is pretty intense and
    lasts for a quite while. And it makes your skin literally feel like a baby sheep!

3. The ARTDECO Aromatic Body Cream Skin Yoga
    I love anything that contains shea butter so I tried these samples. I really love the scent, it's not fruity at all
    but very revitalizing. And I really l really love how my skin feels like after treating it with this product.
    Definetely going to purchase the full bottle!

4. YANKEE CANDLE - Summer Breeze
    I love scented candles. And this one for some reason reminds me on my holidays in croatia last year! Very
    fruity and delicious! The entire room screams summer when there's still snow outside haha

    Haha I seriously dislike eating salads. I can't live without meat. But on pamper evenings I at least try to
    reduce the amount of meat. That's when I run to the fridge and start to throw random stuff into a bowl and
    fry some champignons.

 I know there's ham but hey at least I tried!! Also Follow me on instagram! I'm linhandrea or Click HERE

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a great night xx

New Layout + Blogging is difficult!

Hello there!
First of all I'm so so sorry for not blogging the last few days but school literally killed me!
I've been writing tons and tons of exams and today was my last important one. Well before they push me into the A-Levels. Yay?! Well I don't have a good feeling about the results so it's rather a NAY!

Anyways, I will be blogging a lot more in the next few days since now I have some time. I started with unwrapping all my photoshop knowledges that I've gained in the last 5 years and made a new layout because let's be honest my last one was awful! I really hope you guys like it. I am going to make some more changes in the next few days but since it's almost 3 am in the morning I will stop here!

How you do you like it?! :)

I hope you had a great day! I'm very tired now, I really need to relax. I can't even write properly right now! haha sorry for all the grammar mistakes!
Andrea xx
