11 Question Tag :)

Hey Everyone!

I was tagged by Natasha to do this tag, thanks so much for tagging cause I love tags :)!

Here's the rules:
1. Each person must state 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the questions the tagger has sent you plus the 11 facts about you.
3. Choose 11 people and link them in your blog.
4. Go to their page and tell them.
5. No tag backs.
6. You legitimately have to tag.

Lets start with the 11 facts about me:

1. I just started watching True Blood (need my vampire fix since there's no Vampire Diaries)
2. I live on popcorn and pizza.
3. My favorite colours are pink green, blue and yellow.
4.  I seem to always be chewing on gum.
5. I used to dance.
6. I hate it when people treat me like a child just because I'm short (4 ft 9 in). 
7. I still watch cartoons and Disney animated movies.
8. I have an obsession with body butter.
9. I spend hours on shopping sites without buying anything.
10. I change my nail polish every two days.
11. Thinking of 11 facts about myself was harder than I thought!

And here's the questions asked by Natasha:

1. Favorite movie?
Titanic ... I have watched the movie over 30 times and I still cry like a baby every single time.

2. Hats or scarves?
I like them both. I tend to wear scarves more in the winter time and straw type hats in the summer time :)
3. What inspires you?
Tough question as it depends on what you're working on. I get inspired to do different makeup looks by different colours and how they look together etc. I get inspired to do a certain outfit by different colours, patterns and fabric. Hope I answered the question correctly :)

4. Would you rather spend a lot of money on a designer handbag or shoes?
I would go for the handbag as I think you can dress the outfit more with different pairs of shoes rather than with bags.

5. Do you play videogames?
Yes, though I suck. Everyone wants to play against me cause they know they are going to win no matter what.

6. Favourite colour and animal?
If I had to choose only one colour it would be green. As for my favorite animal it has to be a penguin!

7. What colour eyes do you have?
Brown :)

8. What's your star sing and do you believe in horoscopes?
My star sign is Libra. When I was little I used to believe them but now I do not really.
9. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live if you aren't allowed to say somewhere where you already live or have lived?
California ... I would be near the beach 24/7.

10. Do you play any musical instruments? If not, would you like to?
No, I went to a couple of guitar lessons and I sucked at it but I would love to be able to play something.

11. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
I am staring at this question without a clue for its answer.

My questions:

1. What are your summer must haves?
2. Favourite nail polish?
3. One thing you are scared of?
4. Lipstick or lipgloss?
5. If you could wish for one thing what would it be ?
6. One of your biggest pet peeves?
7. Name one strange thing about you.
8. Who is your biggest inspiration in fashion?
8. Your favourite tv show?
9. Dresses or jeans?
10. Something which you cannot live a day without?

Fashion Haul

Hey Everyone!

I have been studying like crazy for the past three weeks since I am doing my finals and thus had no time to blog. But yesterday I decided to take a break and do some shopping. Well, I kind of deserved a shopping trip. 

I found some cute things and also baught some things online and thought of sharing them with you guys :)

New Look - Floral white denim vest - 24.99 EUR

New Look - Peach Blouse - 17.99 EUR

New Look - Bangle Set - 12.99 EUR
These are not on the site but they have many similar ones.

Pull & Bear - Navy shorts - 25.99 EUR

Orsay - Coral Shorts - 12.95 EUR

Tally Weijl - Sandals - 12.95 EUR

Ebay - Nude pumps - 25.98 EUR
My camera is making the shoes look horrible. Trust me, the color is much nicer in person :)

Dorothy Perkins- Aqua clutch - 15.99 EUR

Clair's Accessories - Bracelet - 3.95 EUR

Pastel Pink Ring - New Look 
Tear drop blue ring - Accessorize
Mint Ring -

Nude belt - Local boutique 

China Glaze - Pure Elegance
This is by far the most crappy nail polish I have ever purchased. To get full opacity you need at least 6 coats and it never dries. Literally! I was really disappointed since I have been trying to find a nice bubblegum pink nail polish since forever.

Essie - A Crewed Interest

And that completes my haul :)

What do you think of the things I got? Also, any suggestions on a good bubblegum pink nail polish?

Talk to you soon.

Haul: Primark, New Look, Asos & more!

Hey everybody!

I got a couple of goodies and wanted to share them with you :)
So, let's start.

About two weeks ago my brother went with his girlfriend to Manchester and got me some shoes from Primark. Well, I did pay for them but he was the one to pick them up. I was actually impressed with the ones he picked and I LOVE them (especially the mint one).

Next, is this silver spike necklace I got from asos. I think it is a perfect piece of jewelry to make an outfit a little bit more edgy. From asos I also got this pink/purple bangle. Both of these where from the sale section on their site.

I got these cute pair of earrings from the sale section at new look.

This necklace I got from ebay. It is really girly and delicte looking :)

Lastly, I picked up two books which I already read one of them and I am half way through the second one. I really enjoyed reading them and would recommend them :)

And that completes my haul. Hope you had a wonderful day today :)

Sunday Smiles: Fishtail braid, Penguins and Vampire Dairies!

Hey Everyone!

Happy Sunday to you all! I hope you're having an amazing day today. I've spent my whole weekend trying to study like crazy for my finals which start next Saturday. But looking at the bright side, the sooner I get through them, the sooner it's summertime! <3 I hope you spent your weekend better than I did :)

I am currently in love with the fishtail braid!
I have been trying it out but till now the results where pretty horrible.

My all time favorite animal would be a penguin, which a lot find it's weird.
I just wanted to share with you this picture... isn't it adorable? <3

At last I wanted to talk about my obsession with The Vampire Diaries <3
I watch a bunch of other show but I can never compare tv shows like Pretty little liars or The Secret Circle with The Vampire Diaries ... it is by far my favorite tv show!
Also, having a hottie like Ian Somerhalder aka Damon Salvatore in a show as good as this is the cherry on the cake!
Have you seen this week's eppisode? ... I nearly died while watching. If you have seen it then you already know why :) And here's my favorite bit from the whole show.

Lastly, I am going to leave you with a little quote to remind you to always be happy -- that's where true beauty comes from :)

 Don't forget to comment me any requests for future posts. 
Till next time.

How To: Cupcake Nails

Here's a really simple tutorial on how to get these cute cupcake nails!

Step 1: Choose a base color and apply it to all of your nails.

Step 2: Pain the tip with a yellow color.

Step 3: Paint half the tip with a lighter yellow color. While letting it dry, with a tootpick form white lines on the lower peach area.

Step 4: With a dotting tool or a toothpick make different colored dots all over the lighter yellow area. With a red colored nailpolish make a bigger dot on top of the nail.

And here is the result:

DIY- Neon Jewelry

Hey everyone!
I have this little DIY 'project' to show you.
As you might have noticed neon is really in this Spring and you can find neon jewelry in every store right now. Though I thought of making my own neon jewelry. All you need is some material and some creativity.

Items you will need:

Some old jewellery 
Neon nail polish

So, let's start:

Step 1 - Choose the piece of jewelry you want to re-vamp. I chose this silver bracelet since I never wear it and also because I thought it would look cute when paiting each strand with a different color.

Step 2 - Choose your colors. I chose to paint mine in four different shades of neon; teal, peach, lilac and hot pink. Tip- try to choose colors that compliment each other.

Step 3 - Paint each strand of beads with a different color. It is important to leave each strand to dry for about 10 to 15 minutes before painting the next one.

Step 4 - Let it completely dry for a couple of hours. I left mine over night while I was sleeping and the next morning it was compeltely dry. At this pont you can re-touch some areas on your jewelry. And this is the result.

I think it turned out looking quite cute and when stacked with other bracelet it looks even better. It's a very inexpensive way to have trendy jewelry and it is also very fun to do.

So, what do you guys think of this idea? Leave me a comment and let me know :)
