Long time no post. Well, let me fill you in a bit (not that this blog is too personal anyway).
My summer went something like this: got a very spontaneous job at Zara and ultimately got sucked into a routine of work and sleep, while also trying to keep my social life somewhat breathing. As soon as my summer job ended – thank God (not that it was that bad, but damn, customers are the devil) – I went on a deeply researched adventure to the Yorkshire coastline to a village called Robin Hood’s Bay. So have a peek at my photojournal. Continue reading “City Break: Robin Hood’s Bay”
Interesting choice of dress on a cloudy London day, you might say. And you’re right, I was probably the brightest eye-soaring sight on the tube and I ain’t sorry about it. But it doesn’t have to be mid July for you to wear that floral maxi dress either. So check out this JD Williams lil vivid number. Is it green? It is yellow? Well, it’s exactly what you want it to be.

What does one do during deadline period at uni? Play with makeup, of course, just to take it all off after making a post about it. Nope, I did not go anywhere other than my flat wearing this. Nope, I regret nothing. I wanted to do something I’ve never tried before so this happened: a teal, blue-y green-y look that did not necessitate any eye liner.

Ah, yes. The annoyingly temperamental season that gets you confused whether to throw on a jacket or not. I’m one of those people that will casually pull out my bag a 1 liter water bottle, an umbrella, my cat, a scarf, a book, chocolate, a makeup bag and a plethora of other things that, excuse you, of course I need – so carrying a jacket with me comes naturally anyway.

March has brought us some pretty cool tunes, but it was also merciless with the mediocre ones. We discuss Kendrick Lamar’s surprise compilation album, ZAYN’s highly anticipated Mind Of Mine and up and coming artist Låpsley. Warning: mixed feelings.

Yep, totally making a reference to Batman v Superman in the title (which you will have to watch for yourself to see where you stand; I’m still on the fence about it) and please do tell me your opinions on it in the comments!
Anyway, this post will explore which matte foundation is better. Both drugstore, both hyped, both claiming to hold 24H – but which one does the job better?

If you rolled your eyes at the title, pursed your lips or didn’t care at all, don’t bother. This post is not an attempt to convert y’all, but merely my honest experience with veganism/plant-based lifestyle.
See, vegans and vegetarians have become this hilarious meme everyone will laugh at and nobody thinks twice about it. Hell, even I sometimes still laugh. And no, I will not go into the “misunderstood life of vegans”, but mocking some people that are actually doing a good thing for the planet and glamorizing the all-knowing bacon eater has been taken a step too far. Oh and to clarify, when I introduce myself I do not give handshakes while saying “I’m vegan, nice to meet you too”. Continue reading “To vegan or not to vegan?”
In terms of music, Kanye West was definitely the most noticeable and hilarious figure in February. From his tweet asking Zuckerberg for a small loan of $1 billion (a Trump reference indeed) to the Wiz Khalifa shade and to Rose Amber’s tweet that still rules the Internet, Kanye was unstoppable this month with his online presence: he just won’t stop tweeting. Not to mention that he titled his album So help me God, Swish, Waves, just to ultimately settle for The Life of Pablo (wth?!), which, apparently, is neither referring to Escobar, nor Picasso, but Saint Paul. And it does make sense, since this album is slightly gospel, like West warned us about.

A not so popular idea among the beauty community, Glossier inspired me to write a post featuring products that I use to accentuate my natural beauty, and not cover it. I love me some NikkieTutorials glam from time to time, but letting your raw good looks shine through can be fun as well.

These days I’ve been thinking about my writing and where I want to take it from here. Interestingly enough, the conclusion that I reached was that I do not know. I don’t know whether my main interest is beauty, music or film. I’m still figuring everything out, but what I do know is that this is my safe haven where I write about myself and shit that I like. So, I am hereby introducing the new series: The Music Den, where I’m talking about music I listened to that month: old and new.
