August & September Favorites

Hey Beauties,

Sorry for the lack of posting but both Rachel and I are very busy at the moment with our work and studies. But bear with us we are trying our best to cope :). So today I have a day off, therefore I decided to post my August and September Favorites. In August I didn't have that much favorites therefore I decided to accumulate them for this month. I have 5 favorite products this month:

First off, my most favorite product is the Essence Long Lasting eye pencil in the color 'Look at me'. I really like this product, it is perfect as an eye highlighter. At the moment I am getting only a couple hours of sleep because I have to study; I found this eye pencil perfect to make my eyes look awake and less red. I apply it in the inner tear duct coupled with a black eyeliner on the lid and some mascara. Also, it can also be used as a base: Perfect! Swatches of this product can be found HERE.

Next up is the Catrice Fake It Mascara. This is a new found favorite. I bought it a couple of weeks ago, however I have been applying it ever since. At first I didn't like it that much, but then after applying approximately 3 coats my lashes are longer and more voluminous. Also, check this wand out!!! I have never seen anything like this, it is perfect for building up volume and to coat even the smallest of lashes. Great Product!

The third product is Deborah Milano Eye Design Quad in 'Each and Every Rose'. I have been using this quad for work because it contains natural colors. I really like these colors and are perfect for any eye color. Also, the eye shadows are quite pigmented and not powdery. This quad is a must have for those who are still starting with applying eye shadows.

The next product is Catrice Skin Finish Compact Power in the color '010 Transparent'. I really like this product since it matifies my skin  and lasts quite a long time. Another thing is that it is quite a large product and very inexpensive, I bought it for only 4.50 euro. Another great product.

Last but not the least, is a perfume. I have numerous perfumes, however lately I have been loving Harajuku Lil' Angels in Lovers. It is a sweet scent with a hint of vanilla. It is not an overpowering smell, therefore it is great as an everyday scent. Also, the packaging is so cute :). The downside is that it is very small, only 1.0 fl oz or 30ml.

Have you tried any of these products?

That is all for today, until next time

Take Care

Storage Ideas

Hi Beauties :), 

As per you suggestions through our Poll, here are some Storage Ideas. 


There are a lot of jewelry boxes and cases that one can use. However, personally I like my earring to be hanging and somewhere where I can see them, or else I forget what I have.

Earring Holder

I bought this earring holder from ebay for a couple of euro and it is really handy and practical. I really like it because It stores quite a lot of earrings. Speaking of which, I need to buy another one since it is becoming quite full. 

Necklaces & Bracelets 

I used to store my necklaces in a small jewel box however they would always get tangled and then I would end up always wearing the same couple of things. To solve this problem I bought a small handbag holder and attached it to the inside door of my wardrobe. This saved up a lot of space and necklaces do not get tangled anymore. 

Small Handbag Holder


I store my makeup according to what they are, for example: foundation, quads and small palettes, mascaras, eyeliners, lip glosses, and lipsticks. I use food containers which can be found at supermarkets or euro shops. 

The makeup that I use on an everyday basis I store it in a small makeup case which I found is quite handy if you are in a rush in the morning. 

Nail Polish and Perfumes 

With regards to perfumes I discard the packaging and store them all in one corner on a metal tray. I call it my “perfume corner”. This way it is easy to identify which perfume you would want to wear and also it creates somewhat of a decoration.

Small Metal Tray

The same goes for nail polishes; I store them all in one corner in basket like tray. This way everything is in order and organized. 

Basket Tray

How do you store your personal belongings?
From where do you buy your containers and organizational trays? 

Till the next post 

Take Care
