Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :)

long time no see... I've been a very very bad blogger. I somehow had lost my motivation to blog but now I'm back :) PLUS I finally have a SLR :) The picture quality is amazinggggg!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is ready for New Years Eve. I will be in London this year watching the fireworks so no cute little dress and heels :D But instead a very thick jumper with a very warm coat and comfy trainers.

What are your plans for New Years Eve? Did you decide on your outfit?

The Start of a New Era

Hi guys :)

VERY LONG TIME no see. I was soooo busy with my Master dissertation and my new job that I could not post on my blog for ages :( BUT I submitted my dissertation yesterday and now I'm free. We went with hubby to the BBC Proms last night :) Celebrating our anniversary and the submission of my dissertation. It was great :) You definitely should go at some point in your life. Tomorrow I'm off to Finland :) HELSINKI here I come. To be more precise I'm going with work. I will be busy with work from Monday to Friday but I will be staying till Monday :) So I have 2.5 days to explore Helsinki. Have you got any recommendations?? I will try and take loads of pics.

I'm off to watch a movie with hubby now :) I leave you with the pics from last night. Unfortunately, I only had my phone with me so quality is not that great :( Sorry.

Have a great weekend :)



 Excuse the weird face :)

It's supposed to be Leather :) I've been lusting for ages for a satchel bag from the cambridge satchel company but far too expensive. I bought it in pink :) Will wear it to work hehehe

Have a nice weekend :)

Hello Hello :)

Hope you are all well. I thought I do a FOTD from last week :D So a Face of Last Week!
I was sent by Eyeko a Graffiti Eyeliner Pen in Jet Black and a Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen in Hot Pink to try :) I have heard a lot about the brand Eyeko in the Bloggersphere but so far I only tried their Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow. BTW I love the extra glow cream.

Wanted to post real pictures of products but camera broke on Sunday :( Sorry!
I'm not an eyeliner person :) Tooo shaky for eyeliner. Plus I think it looks too harsh on me. So I was not sure if I will be able to use it. However, once I opened the package and tried the eyeliner I was pleasantly surprised. It is very easy to use and glides on the skin. So I experimented a bit :) As you can see from the picture I used it on my lower lash line but only half way through and blended it out with a  Q-tip. I love the result :) It is not too harsh but still defines my eyes. What do you think??

The Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen became straight away my favourite :) I don't like lipglosses but LOVE lipsticks. And this pen is just gorgeous :) Very nice and smooth. Glides perfectly on the lips and even if you have dry lips it does not show the imperfections. I went to a Hen Night last Saturday posted here  and I took it with me :) Everybody complimented me on my lipcolour. However, most importantly, due to being in a pen form :) You can still apply it precisely even when you are a bit tipsy :D hehe I will definitely purchase the other Liptastik colours :) So stay tuned for more Eyeko Reviews.

Miracle Brand - Nailtiques

Hi guys,

I hope you are well. I’m very excited at the moment as I have very exciting days awaiting for me J I have a graduate job! Its a dream job at a dream company. However, finding a place to live proves to be very challenging PLUS I’m writing on my dissertation. I need to hurry up with my dissi as I won’t have much time once I start my full time job. I will soon be living closer to London which is very exciting.

Anyway J The blog post today is about Nailtiques products or also known as MIRACLE products. I’m sure I’ve posted before about my miracle product for my weak, peeling nails. I’ve been using the Nailtiques Nail Protein Formula 2 for 4 years now. Honestly, it’s the best nail product I came across in my life J And I’m 27 and a beauty addict for many years. So you can imagine how many new products I try every week. But this one has never been replaced by any other product. I even recommended it to my beauty therapist J and she swears by it too now.

About three months ago I tried another Nailtiques product, the cuticle and skin gel. I have very dry cuticles and they can look horrible. It does not matter how nicely you paint your nails dry cuticles ruin everything. I tried last year the very hyped Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream but I found it to greasy and it did not make much difference on my cuticles. However, after using the Nailtiques cuticle and skin gel I no longer have the problem of dry cuticles. I put it on my cuticles just before I go to bed and when I wake up the next morning it looks like I had a manicure done J Honestly, I could talk about these two miracle products until tomorrow morning J Once you tried it you will see what I mean with MIRACLE.

So who is Nailtiques??

Nailtiques was created from one woman’s passion for nails. As a therapist and salon owner in the 80’s, Diane Longo, founder of nailtiques discovered the products she used were not specific enough to treat the different nail conditions of her clients.

So, in 1990 Diane took her years of training and expertise and devoted her resources into developing the nailtiques brand, a unique therapeutic nail care system proven to help nails that are inclined to peel, break or split and to promote and maintain healthy, natural nail growth.

Today, nailtiques the innovator of natural nail care is an internationally renowned system that is synonymous with quality and professionalism.

A bottle of Formula 2 protein is sold every minute worldwide. This successful formula entered InStyle Magazine’s prestigious Hall of Fame, after being awarded ‘Best Treatment for Problem Nails’ for three years in a row, confirming its status as a classic beauty must-have.

Last week, I was contacted by Nailtiques. The friendly PR Lady saw my tweet (I was raving about Nailtiques) on Twitter. So she sent me an email telling me about Nailtiques new Nail Lacquer with Protein range. As a big fan of the brand I agreed to test one of the new nail polishes. 

Nailtiques claims:

The unique blend of colour and protein allows the protein to penetrate through the polish providing maximum strength with high gloss shine, long-lasting wear and highest quality formula, ensuring strong healthy nails.
Available in 16 classic colours which have been named after exotic locations around the world with spa’s offering nailtiques treatments and products, from a French pink, ‘St Tropez’ to a rich blackcurrant, ‘Havana’.

I agree with all the claims Nailtiques makes. It’s just another great Nailtiques product. I received the shade Monte Carlo (307). A gorgeous colours as you can see from the pictures. The application of the nail polish was easy and enjoyable J Yes enjoyable as it went on like a gel. Nice and smooth in two coats. Even one coat would have been enough but I just prefer two coats. There was no need to use a topcoat as it dried very quickly and was very shiny. Normally, I use Seche Vite as a topcoat to make the polish dry quickly and make it more shiny but honestly I did not feel the need for it with this polish. It lasted me 5 days without chipping. I’m sure it would have lasted longer but I just don’t like wearing the same polish for more than 5 days as I get fed up with the colour. I think this nail polish is comparable to OPI but with the advantage of providing your nails with protein. I will definitely try out other colours from this range. The combination of protein and colour is a brilliant idea.

My camera is not the best. Will be getting a new one soon. The colour is really vibrant in reality! 

Have you tried any Nailtiques products??
