How I organize my makeup

Hi all,

All of us.. that have a soft spot for makeup and beauty good.. dream of having a special space to doll up and store our beloved makeup items, so today I decided to share with all of you how I store my makeup and beauty good. Well, I don’t own a huge makeup collection, I only have what I use and so on but I do have a little extra space in our bedroom that is very bright so I decided it would be my spot to blog and play around with my stuff.

Before I moved from Ireland to Germany I didn’t have a space of my own for my makeup/beauty products. I had to store in my spare bathroom, which was large enough and had a huge mirror. Now, I feel happier because I can literally enjoy my little beauty space. In my new apartment we have a two bedroom apartment both quite spacious so one became our walk-in closet/office and the other is our main bedroom is the one I have my makeup storage desk.

If you want me to show pictures of the before and after decoration, let me know and I can create a post only for that.

So here are some pics that I selected to show you guys, unfortunately here in Germany it gets dark very early during the winter months so I couldn’t take pictures of every single drawer, but don’t worry I will in a near future. πŸ™‚

Urban Decay: Electric Palette

Hi Gals… happy 2015!!!!!

I have been gone for so long that I cannot even remember last time I wrote a post. Sad!!! I love blogging but my life has been a little crazy lately.

Since I graduated and moved to Germany and I have had so much going on: looking for apartment, furnishing it.. looking for a job learning a language, getting used to the city! It was a absolutely unbelievable year so crazy.

I have continue to purchase makeup and to try new things but unfortunately have not had the time to blog about it. This year, I’m determined to be back on track with blogging.

In October last year I purchased the so talked about Electric Palette from Urban Decay as well as the Vice 3. These are my current babies…. completely in love with these palettes.

I briefly reviewed the Vice 3 on the blog and now I finally have the time and the energy to write this post about the Electric Palette.

I bought this one on Douglas Website. The delivery was free and very, very fast. This palette is completely amazing for those of you who love to create daring and vibrant looks. You can play around with these shadows because they are in fact pressed pigments. So, you can use and eyeliners, eyeshadows, lip colour of even on your cheeks or for artistic makeup such as bruises and so on…

It is completely up to you how to use it!!! It is fun and super easy to work with, plus the price (44euros) is definitely good for high quality pigments.

Now, let’s check it out πŸ™‚

Hi dolls,

I finally got the chance to review some of the Sigma Kits that I have purchased recently. These two kits comes with 5 brushes each and I have used them for the pastΒ  month and I can say that I don’t regret spending the money on them. All I can say is that it took me forever to manage to buy them as I could only buy online and my address was about to change. Anyways, if you want to know more I wrote the whole story below.. otherwise you can skip that part and go straight to the reviews! πŸ™‚

Meet my new love: They’re Real Push Up Liner by Benefit!

Hi Lovelies…

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!! πŸ™‚ Today I’m writing a quick post about my new favourite eyeliner: They’re Real by Benefit. Seriously, I have heard so much about this little magic pen that I decided that I no longer can bare no to have it. So, I bought it a couple of days ago and since then I’ve been using every single day.

One Word: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! It is definitely by far, far away the best gel eyeliner that I have ever used! It does thick all the boxes and all I can say that €25 for this, it is totally worth paying.

Saying Hallo from Berlin!!

photo 2

Hi Everyone!

This isn’t my regular beauty post. This is actually just a quick post to explain to you all why I haven’t posted anything lately. I know, I’m a blogger newbie but I really enjoy doing it, even if my audience isn’t so large lol. I do it for pleasure, really. That’s why I want to explain why I had to take a short brake.

I started the blog in a very busy moment in my life, I was in my last semester in College and we were also planning to move overseas. There were lots of things to organize and to sort out before our ‘big’ move.

I was finishing my final exams in college, taking a driving test and packing all within a very short schedule. I wanted to tell all of you who take your time to read the blog why I basically disappeared. It has been hard to juggle everything at the same time. A few weeks after I finished college I moved from Dublin to Berlin with my husband and our dog (Rocco in the pic below)!

So, it has been crazy and at the moment things are a bit upside down lol. I head so many things on my to do list (Number 1 was find an apt, which thankfully wasn’t as hard as we’d imagined). Now, I am temporarily without Internet, (no more ‘Instagraming’ or ‘Whatsapping’ for the moment lol…) I am back on prepay hahhaha and it sucks real bad hahhah! I feel like I’m back to the stone age.

Anyways, we actually just found ourselves a very nice apartment and we moved in last Saturday so things are still a bit all over the place and I will probably be without internet at home for another two weeks!! It seems it can be a little slow depending on which internet provider you are going for.

I am also with my makeup (most of it at least) still stored in boxes and I’m waiting for my dressing table (a good place to take nice pictures) and mirror to arrive.

I hoping to be back to normal with regular blog posts after my internet is finally installed. So, far I’m enjoying what the city has to offer and getting myself busy with paying regular visits to furniture stores and all these kinds of things. I have also already found lots of cool places to buy makeup and beauty products. Very soon, I will be doing a guide to help you guys buy beauty/makeup products if you visit Berlin.

I’m really missing the blog and missing having internet on my phone hahahhah.

I hope you guys don’t forget the blog on the mean time. πŸ™‚

Love,

From Berlin.
