Archive for the ‘Cause I’m just a girl…’ Category

About two weeks ago I stumbled over the new Essence Ready for Boarding Trend Edition in my local drugstore. There wasn’t much in that TE that really interested me, although the design of the Eyeshadow pallete was pretty cute. The polish colors were pretty boring, the Peel Off Base Coat, I showed you in my recent Haul of Shame was already sold out, so I decided to try out the Lip & Cheek Cremes. And I bought both of them.

Here’s what they look like:

On the left we have “Sending you Kisses”, a dark fushia pink, and on the right is “Beauty on Tour”, a coral peach color. The consitency is really nice, very creamy and not sticky at all. The pigmentation is very good, and they blend on easily and are also buildable on your cheeks and lips if you want a richer color.  The price was around 3 € each.

Here is a “heavy” swatch on the back of my hand:

left: Sending you Kisses

right: Beauty on Tour

My own opinion is that I would rather use them on my cheeks than on my lips, but the only reason for that is, that I don’t like lip products, where you have to stick your fingers in to apply them.

If you can still get them, just go ahead. I think they are a realy good product for the price and worth checking them out.

While I was browsing through one of my favorite blogs nihrida.com I saw these amazing earrings she got from ebay.com. I had to have these for myself. So I typed in “long tassel butterfly earrings” and found them.

Aren’t they georgeous???

There were super-cheap, I paid 1,63 $ for them and it was free worldwide shipping. They came all the way from Hong Kong and shipping took about 16 days.

After I purchased them, I kinda tasted blood and went on a hunt for custom jewelry. And ended up finding those:

Aren’t they super cute??? Take a closer look.

The necklace is about 48 cm long and is also adjustable in length for about 5 more cm. At the end the little chain extender is another little Panda Head you can see in the picture above. The Panda Head itself is 4 cm wide.

The Panda on the “little” Ring is actually 3 cm wide. It’s like a supercute cocktail ring. 🙂

This one is not adjustable in size. Mine is like a size 7 cause it fits perfectly on my ring finger. I wish I had gotten it in a bigger size, cause I’d like to wear rings like that on my index finger, but in this particular shop, there were no size choices. But I’ve seen different shops, that have them in several sizes from 6 to 9.

I paid 2,99 $ for the necklace and 2,29 $ for the ring and it was also free worldwide shipping from Hong Kong. If you want them, type in “Panda necklace or ring”.

I’m sooooo in love with my new jewelry, and there’s some more on the way. 🙂

So stay tuned for more ebay finding posts!
