One Sweep Eyeshadows

Hello! ♥
Today I'm going to be talking about two of my most used one sweep eyeshadows!
It's always about saving time when I'm getting ready for school in the morning and most times I do want to wear a nice makeup look - also including eyeshadow, of course! These two right here are my most used and also favourite ones because they're just really easy to apply and to blend!

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hours Cream Gel Eyeshadow 65 Pink Gold
A lovely dusky pink with a hint of shimmer that is also very easy to apply - with or without a brush! Personally, I find it easier to apply and blend this with my finger!

Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Metal Eyeshadow 120 Satina Van Der Woodsen
This one, though, I always apply with my recently purchased Zoeva eyeshadow brush! The golden shimmery shade is really flattering for my brown eyes and it makes them look really nice, if I may say so. :-)

Have you got any eyeshadow favourites at the moment?

5 Things: Autumnal Nail Polish Colours

Hello everyone! ♥
Although the title of this post and the colours in the photo don't go together very well, I still want to talk about the nail polish colours that I think are very lovely to wear during Autumn this year!

p2 Volume Gloss Gel Look Polish 021 Young Miss
This is a gorgeous dusky pink colour that I have grown to love over the past couple of weeks and I get never tired of having this colour on my nails! Not is it only my favourite polish colour but also my favourite lipstick shade!

p2 Last Forever Nail Polish 250 Warm Me Up
An overall great shade for Autumn! For me, autumnal shades - whether for lipstick, eyeshadows or nail polishes - are either berry or very warm tones like dark red or purple, and this one right here is the loveliest berry tone I have ever worn on my nails!

Catrice Cosmetics Luxury Nudes 01 White & Bright
This one right here is a complete opposite to the tones I just labelled as my favourites for Autumn, though, a soft matte white nail polish can never be missed, no matter what season we're in at the moment! Actually, I'm wearing this polish while I'm writing this and I really adore it!

p2 Volume Gloss Gel Look Polish 210 Diva Expressiva
A dark purple shade that looks amazing combined with a cosy white sweater and a thick scarf! Which makes it the perfect colour for Autumn and Winter!

p2 Volume Gloss Gel Look Polish 370 Rain Dancer
I bought this one after I saw the new nail polishes from Tanya Burr Cosmetics on Feelunique and I instantly wanted to order it because I liked it so much. But instead I went shopping with my cousin and bought this one for about half the price! It's not the exact same shade, though, I still really like it and it's just another dark grey colour that is great for Autumn and Winter!

What is your favourite nail polish brand?

Instagram Favourites

Hello! ♥
I have been at a loss of ideas lately and to be honest, I also have never been this negative about blogging before!

But after looking for some inspiration on the beloved Internet, I came to the conclusion to not worry about what other, way more successful bloggers write about on a daily basis but to worry about what my own readers might want to read on here. 
I'd really like to know what you all want to read (more) on here! It would be a lovely opportunity to actually set a blogging aim for myself and my blogging progress! :-)

Now back to topic! 
For today, I chose to write a couple paragraphs about my most liked and visited Instagram accounts at the moment! Thus would include turned on post notifications for that account and daily liked photos, of course. Recently, I have been loving more fashion related accounts rather than beauty and lifestyle related ones. Just because I am in the phase of 'finding my own style'.

Until now this post has been quite a rambly one and I am sincerely apologising for that but it's one of those days where I am just in the mood of writing something a little longer and hope that people actually read it.

But seriously now... My top seven favourite Instagram accounts listed below:

This Instagram account is one I just discovered recently but I am already loving every single post! Also, their Like 2 Have It page is awesome to look up all of their lovely outfits!

Simple but elegant. I think that's the 'theme' of this account with over 2.2 million followers and I am happy to say that I am one of those many followers that really love all the outfit posts!

Sophie is gorgeous. That's the first thing that has to be said. Her blog, though, is just one of my favourites out there!

Amazing photos, lovely outfits and over-all great account! Nothing more to say to this one, actually. :-)

Kati is the first of three German Instagram accounts that I present to you in this post today! Her timeline on IG is kept quite minimalised and I love it! It look so pretty and I think I would never get myself to a point where I could keep my account that 'clean' looking, if that makes any sense...!

Same goes for this lovely account, which is owned by Leonie! Her photos are so lovely and I always enjoy looking at them whenever I see a new one!

And last but not least, my most loved Instagram account/YouTuber! She's just a lovely - and gorgeous! - young woman whose videos and photos just brighten my mood every single time I see a new video uploaded whatsoever!

As mentioned, the last three of these are German bloggers and/or YouTubers that I adore very much! They all, though, inspire me to a great extent and it's always a lovely sight when I see a new post notification!

What are your Instagram favourites?

Catrice Ultimate Colour Lipstick

Hello lovelies! ♥
I had been looking for a lipstick that doesn't make my lips dry and chapped ever since I have started using makeup because I just think a nice face makeup is nothing without a nice lipcolour!
A few weeks ago my search came to an end and I finally found a lipstick that is perfect for me - and I even like that colour on me, which is also a rare experience when it comes to me, myself and lipsticks! 

It's the Catrice Ultimate Colour Lipstick in the colour 370 'In A Rosegarden' and oh my lord, do I love this!! 
Although I am set on a two (or more) month beauty ban - a big thank you for this great idea to Lydia from Lovely Jubbly! - I am currently thinking if I should just buy one or two more shades of this. I think the shades that keep catching my eye would be perfect for autumn and winter! But I am certainly not sure yet...! *hint 340 Berry Bradshaw hint 420 Plum Fiction hint*

However, with the price of 3.99€ each, it's just a tad more than I would have wanted to spend on a lipstick, but these are just so pigmented and the shades are gorgeous that they're simply worth every penny!

You wouldn't believe me if I told you how happy I was when I found these in the Catrice section! At the moment, they're my number one favourite lip product to use and I really recommend them! 

What are your 'ultimate' colours for autumn and winter?

My Favourite TV Shows

Hello! ♥
I thought in today's post I'd just share my favourite TV shows with you all! :-) I've had a TV-Show-Marathon ever since summer holidays had started in the end of July, but now that I'm back in school I can't just go back to that daily routine... *sad emoji*

Pretty Little Liars
There's not much to say about this, is there? Pretty Little Liars was the show that I started my marathon with and I instantly fell in love with it because it's just so darn addicting! I'm still watching episode after episode and it never gets boring!

The Big Bang Theory
This one hasn't been on my list of favourite shows for that long but now I just love it! And whenever I'm in need for something else to do - besides watching PLL - I'm getting my laptop and watch some episodes of The Big Bang Theory!

How I Met Your Mother
HIMYM is - hands down - the TV show that I love the most; of course not as much as PLL but they do share the first place of my list!
And to be honest, who doesn't just like Barney and Ted and Robin and Lily and Marshall and all the others?

I once mentioned that Zoella has been one of my biggest inspirations for starting this blog but the truth is that Jenna and her personal blog have really inspired me a lot more than anything or anyone else, which might sound weird because it's only just a TV show but I'm being completely honest here! :-)

What are your favourite TV shows? I'd love to know!

Collective Haul: Beauty, Clothing, Stationery

Hellooo! ♥
The title of today's post says it all, doesn't it? 
Well, I've mentioned it enough times that I went to Austria with my cousin and her parents and spent some days in Berlin (♥) afterwards. So of course I was planning on doing a haul for you! 
I think this time I went a little crazy with the stuff I bought but I kind of needed or just really wanted everything - oops *face covering monkey emoji*

As for the beauty part of this post, I bought four - actually five - eyeshadows to go along with my 'new style'. I really like wearing gold and light pink shades all over the lid and then using the exact other colour in the outer corner of my eye.
I also just fell in love with one of Catrice's lipsticks... My new makeup love are pinky-nude lipsticks.

Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadow 65 Pink Gold - 7.95€
Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow 120 Satina Van Der Woodsen - 3.99€
Catrice Eyeshadow 780 My Name Is P'Earl - 2.79€
Catrice Eyeshadow 950 Gold Out! - 2.79€

Catrice Eyeshadow 880 On The Cover Of PastELLE - 2.79€

I'm using the fifth (Catrice) eyeshadow as a highlighter shade because I've really been into the strobing trend lately and it just makes my face look a lot more glowy and fresh! Love it!

To go along with the highlighter and eyeshadow application, I bought my first three Zoeva brushes, eep!

105 Luxe Highlight - 12.99€
225 Eye Blender - 7.99€
109 Luxe Face Paint - 12.99€

Since autmun is my favourite season of the year and I'm already kind of really into that season at the moment, I bought three new nail polishes that are perfect for the season of autumn! All the three are by a german drugstore brand called p2 and their products are amazing!
And to make sure the nail polish stays on my nails for as long as possible, I bought a top and base coat along with it!

p2 Volume Gloss Gel Look Polish - 1.95€
- 210 diva expressiva
- 370 rain dancer
- 021 young miss

Essence Sealing Top Coat - 1.99€
Rival de Loop 2in1 Top + Base Coat - 1.99€

Now on to the fashion part, shall we?
To my own surprise, I didn't spend as much money of clothing as I thought I would but oh well!
I only went into H&M once and bought four basic pieces of clothing:

Grey leggings - 9.99€
Black leggings - 9.99€
Long sleeved black shirt - 9.99€
No sleeve blouse - 14.99€

And last but not least, I'm going to ramble a little about the store that I've been wanting to go in ever since we moved away from Berlin five years ago; because that's how long I haven't been to Ikea!
Surprisingly, I didn't go all cray cray in there because I just knew what I wanted to buy. And while being in H&M, I was also looking for a marble plate to find a place in my blog photos, which I also found in the H&M Home section! *heart eyes emoji*

Sinnlig Scented Candle in Strawberry - 1.49€
Sinnlig Scented Candle in Orange - 1.49€
Skurar Plant Pot - 2.49€ *which I'm using for my makeup brushes*

Marble Plate - 7.99€

As you can tell by the list of purchased things in this post, I spent quite a lot of money but I'll save up some more now since I'll be going to Paris in October this year! YAY! But until then I'll try and not buy anything, I swear! 

What are some beauty/fashion/stationery items that you've recently purchased?
