Finally a beautiful day here in the Netherlands. I really hope the weather is going to stay this way.
It was just a perfect example of a lazy sunday.

Monthly Theme: Pastels 1, Ice Cream Anyone?

It's April 5th, and as promised, here's the new challenge. This time a little bit different. Instead of a challenge on one theme we will alternate themes every month! Because of this we can be more creative with every manicure. Every month we will do four manicures in that theme. I'm very excited about the first one, which is pastels. We decided to start with this theme because The Nail Challenge Collaborative is exactly one year old today. The first theme the group ever did was pastels, so that explains the first theme of this challenge. Here we go!

Polishes used:
~ Catrice I Scream: Ice Cream! (purple)
~ Catrice Play It Blue
~ Sephora by OPI A-ha! Moment

Catrice recently came out with a new limited edition collection which is called Candy Shock. The colors are just perfect for this first challenge! Four pastel colors and caviar beads too. For this manicure I chose two of the colors and used some caviar beads too. It just looks so sweet to me, so subtle, it reminds me of ice cream. Tell me your thoughts about these beautiful colors down below!

March Favorites 2013

It has been a while since my last post. I've been quite busy with school and had some other things on my mind. Anyways, to make an end to the month of march I put together another monthly favorites. This time a little bit more organised than the ones before, I hope at least!


I came across some songs past month which I really liked. Here is a list of my favorite songs of march:
~ Two Door Cinema Club - Something Good Can Work
~ Tom Odell - Another Love
~ The Script - Six Degrees Of Seperation
~ The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition

I watched a few movies past month including Skyfall and The Help. Both movies really appealed to me and that's why they're in this month's favorites. A little bit funny though, since I wasn't really into James Bond action movies, but I actually really liked this one. I know I'm a bit late too, but I'm glad I've seen it after all. In my opinion, The Help is a really inspiring movie. I've had already seen it once before and it still doesn't bore me at all!

Past month I ordered a pair of heels on ebay, and I have to say I pretty much adore them! Because of the height the heel and platform add to my length, I will not wair these badboys to school or anything like that. But for parties and pictures I believe they're perfect. They are very similar to the original Jeffrey Campbell Lita's, but the ones I bought are way less expensive and the quality isn't probably that well in comparison to the Lita's. Anyways, I love them!

Now my favorite products of the month:
~ Moringa Body Mist - The Body Shop
This is actually the first body mist I've ever tried in my whole life. I really like the texture of the product. It feels incredibly light on your skin and it smells nice and fresh. The product lasts a long time too: I used it at least twice to three times a week since the first week of Januari, and the bottle is still pretty full!

~ Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs
I just can't tell enough how much I like this perfume! It smells like fresh flowers and spring, I just can't get enough of it. And the bottle is absolutely cute too! I can't say any bad words about this product.

This is it for my match favorites. I hope you enjoyed reading! Stay tuned for the next month. We are going to start with a new nail art challenge which I'm really excited about. It is going to be a monthly themed challenge, which means we will have a new theme every month. In each month we will do four manicures in this theme. The first manicure is sceduled on april 5th. Can't wait!
Do you have any monthly favorites for the past month? I would love to hear them!
