GLOWING PASTELS



Today I want to talk to you about two eyeshadow palettes that I have been loving all Winter. I know its almost February and Spring is getting closer but  despite the super cute, wintery design of these palettes, I am considering using them way after the cold goes away.


The Frosted Pastels and Dolly Pastels palettes, were launched by The Body Shop at the beginning of fall. Both have beautiful tones with a glowing pigmentation and I like to think this is the type of eyeshadows fairies wear. Each palette has four tones that compliment each other quite well, at first they seemed to have a bold pigmentation but the lighter shades are very soft, resulting on an almost translucent highlight and a gentle hint of colour once you apply the darker shades. The darkest shadow has a glow pigmentation as well but more intense than the rest.


If I had to choose a favourite, I would pick the one we see below. The Dolly Pastels has a slightly warm approach, using a very sweet peachy tone and an intense dark brown, highlighted by an almost white vanilla hue. I think this one goes better with the colour of my eyes!



Overall I think these palettes are amazing at bringing light to any colour of eyes, which is something I always look for in eye makeup. I just wish they had launched a wider collection! Who knows, maybe they have a Spring collection in the making! *crossed fingers*

MY GAMING MOMENT...


Today´s video is different than usual, as I mentioned at the beginning of the year, I want to include a wider variety of topics here. I can´t even think of an accurate description for what you are about to watch, all I can promise you is that you will laugh as much as I did whilst editing it. ^_^



Leave your comments, I love to read them!

KNITTED LOVE


I purchased these socks at the beginning of December. The first time I spotted them I instantly fell in love with their cute pattern and ultra cozy feeling. I would have never imagined myself writing about a pair of socks but these are THE prettiest and warmest socks I have ever owned.

As a girl who suffers from ice cold hands & feet, I have a collection of fluffy socks (if that is even a thing) which seemed to be the only type that would help my feet stay warm. The only problem is that, in my opinion, fluffy socks are not a good element to wear proudly in the outside world... I just pictured myself wearing skinny jeans, my white vans and fluffy socks... not a good combo! Don´t you think?

This is why I am so in love with this knitted pair. Not only they are practical but they are cute and look good pretty much with anything! Im not so adventurous when it comes to clothes, as you might have noticed, but really like the idea of wearing this with a pair of platforms and a tea dress. Who knows. I might try that one day!
