100 Followers GIVE-AWAY! – CLOSED


Today we are going to celebrate the fact that I now have a 100 followers on this blog!!!!

I’m so grateful, as I told you many times, for all the people who continue to support my work and appreciate the art of Makeup. I love every single one of you.

To show my thanks, I will be giving away a product that I got for you at IMATS London last June. I knew this day would come, so I bought a lovely palette for you:



This is the NYX Cosmetics Glitter Cream palette, which has a lot of different colours. I tried to find this product online, but all I saw where smaller versions that are no longer available on the NYX website, so, I figured this would be special!

I have opened the palette, only to show it on camera, I have not swatched these because that would be unhygienic. I swatched one or two colours at IMATS though, and I can tell you this: the top layer of the product does not contain a lot of the ‘cream’, it’s mainly just loose glitter. The reviews I found say that you should rub a little harder/deeper to get to that creamy texture.
I’m pretty sure we all have some sort of purpose for loose glitter though 😉 Just look at these colours!

Home sweet home

Hi everyone!

Earlier this week I returned from my travels. I know I said I’d return in August, but we aborted the trip due to circumstances I do not wish to discuss here.

So, this morning I checked my blog and discovered I have a new follower, welcome Liz! When we all look to the right side of this blog page, there’s a little side box somewhere that says I now have 100 followers!!! Oh happy day!



Thankyou, all of you, for following my blog! And for people who read, this means there’s a give-away coming up! 😀

Other news:
I started reading ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’. I love it.

Then there’s another new thingie, I started learning some guitar stuff. Don’t expect me to be good or anything, I really mean I just started this week, looking up videos on youtube and stealing my brothers guitar, messing around. Maybe, somewhere in the future, you’ll get a glimpse 😛

Oh, and I don’t know if this is happening anywhere else on the planet, not in Italy, but in the Netherlands is really popular for children: Loom bands? The bright coloured elastic bands to create bracelets? I tried this stuff as well, there are photos that I will show you in a new post.

After this weekend I expect myself to get to painting, either my face, my wall, anything! I saw some really cool videos of my favorite youtubers, so I definitely want to recreate some looks. Also there’s other cool original stuff coming up! Plus I promised a costume pattern that has to be uploaded soon, since the movie comes out in like, 2 months?

Lots to do, luckily I still have a few weeks off before I start the internship!
