Street-Ready ♥

Hello everyone!

Has your Easter been great so far? ♥

I'm so happy it's a 4-day weekend, we've had such a great chance to relax and hang out with loved ones. But as I still am not back at my laptop, here's a post I wrote for you beforehand on Thursday. It's just an outfit I wore a couple of weeks back, again such a tomboy look, but you know, that's me.

I absolutely love the pink accessories I got a while back from Boohoo.com. They're just perfect for spring and summer looks. Because the bright pink is just the perfect color.

And yes, I'm still the most awkward model ever.

Jeans: Gina Tricot
Sweatshirt: Gina Tricot
Jacket: H&M
Bag: Boohoo
Sneakers: Boohoo
Beanie: Boohoo
Sunglasses: Boohoo
Earrings: Bik Bok

So that kind of a look. A tad of hipster in it, even. I think I look like a teenager though, even if many teenagers nowadays dress up more grownup than I do. Well, hell.

Anyways, I'll get back to you very soon this week with another post. What will it be about? We shall see. I hope to get to the weekend highlights first, but we'll see what the beginning of the week brings.

What do you all think about this look? ♥

Now, time to say bye for a brief moment, see ya soon though!

Have a fab day ♥

Tmart Goodies Review ♥

Hey you all!

How are you today? Having a fun Easter? ♥

Today we're visiting friends and seeing their 14 weeks old puppy for the first time, which is super exciting as we would love to have a dog of our own soon. But for now, we must settle for seeing friends' dogs. I will probably have some pictures up later on from that meeting.

Anyway, today's point is actually to talk a bit about some goodies that I received from Tmart.com as a part of cooperation. In this post, I will show two designs I've already done with them, and in the end I will talk a bit about the goodies themselves.

So, let's get started with the designs, shall we?

First up is this little lilac number I created when my parents were visiting us. I really wasn't sure what I was doing, I just wanted to try out the fimos for the first time ever. So if these seem a bit like a mess, that's why.

I chose to use white butterflies with a little lilac in them, and also some blue/lilac flowers to match the mani. I still need to learn a thing or two about placing the fimos neatly, but thanks to this cooperation, I finally have a chance for it.

The polishes I used here were China Glaze Sweet Hook and China Glaze Fairy Dust. The rhinestone stickers are so old I can't even figure out where I got them.

And then to the other one:

With this one I went very summery, as I really, really just wanted to make watermelon nails. This is also something I've never really tried before, and I actually tried to create something without seeing any inspiration pics. I kinda really liked these, though I'm really more for a bit more simple nails at the moment. But I guess during summer I might actually do more these fruit designs.

I tried to sort of create a peel pattern on my thumbs with green polishes and a toothpick. I kind of think that went pretty well, despite the fact it's not that realistic looking.

The polishes I used were China Glaze The Grass Is Lime Greener, China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, China Glaze Surfin' For Boys, Essie Licorice, China Glaze I'm With Lifeguard and L'Oreal Color Riche Green Couture.

And lastly, I want to give you a bit closer look of the fimos.

I sincerely want to thank Tmart.com for sending me these, I've been wanting to try out fimos for a long time, but haven't dared to buy them. Tmart.com also sells lots of cool tech stuff and such, so you might want to check them out.

Enough advertising? Alrighty then. Let's just continue with the fimos.

 photo DSC08204Large.jpg

So I got 8 wheels, each of the containing 12 different designs, and all of them more or less categorized a bit. The designs are super cute, at least to my eye, and you all know how much I love cute stuff, right? I got these cute hearts, pretty little butterflies...

...beautiful flowers, fun smilies...

...adorable animals, sweet leaves...

...more beautiful flowers and deliciously cute fruit.

These fimos were nice and pretty thin, I've heard some companies sending out too thick ones, and obviously they don't stick well enough then, but these seemed pretty reasonable to handle. There weren't many broken ones and the wheels weren't too messed up, even though some pieces had jumped in the neighbor slots. And of course the variety in this pack is pretty awesome, most of these are something I will probably be using sooner or later. I will have to practice using them, so that I will get them to lay nice and smooth on the nails, at least somewhat so, but I would still say these are pretty easy to use. And they are a fun little addition to your regular mani.

Also, I wanna give a big shoutout to how fast I got the items, it only took few days, even if they were sent from US to Finland, which usually takes some time.

Would I recommend getting these fimos? Sure, if you're a nail enthusiast like me (you can browse their nail art stuff here: Tmart Nail Art Decorations. Would I recommend Tmart.com? Probably yes, at least for me, things went smoothly. And the prices on things are totally reasonable. I might go on and order some tech stuff there later on, and I will let you know how that works out for me.

If you are a blogger and are interested in doing a review for this product, please contact: cheneyaustin82@yahoo.com.

What do you guys think about these manicures? Have you ever used fimos, and if so, how did it work out for you?

Okay, so that's all I have for you today, I hope you enjoyed this post. The next post will be up on Monday, and it will be another outfit post, so stay tuned for that. Also, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram for frequent updates on randomness that doesn't make it to the blog. You can find the links on the top of the right sidebar.

Hope you're all having a great weekend, I can't wait to share the highlights of mine with you next week!

Have a fabulous day ♥

Spring Pastels ♥

Hey babes!

How are you all? ♥

Today I've been busy with writing some posts ready for you in case you need something to read during the weekend. Also, I need to make a checklist for tomorrow (yeah, I know, it's a bit neurotic) and choose my clothes. Not to mention I need to tidy up the place a bit so I can actually relax while we're visiting people.

Today, I wanted to come and share this little makeup look with you, I've been loving the pastel eye makeup lately a lot, so I figured I should show you the look I've been wearing lately. If you're on Instagram, you might have seen some of it before already. Also, if you'd rather see an outfit, do visit the previous post for that.

So, this is it, pretty fresh, not having like a plenty of color to it and stuff, and also the lips are pretty light pink. Nothing too crazy. But I've felt this is pretty girly, so I thought some of you might enjoy this.

 photo DSC07771Large.jpg photo DSC07780Large.jpg photo DSC07781Large.jpg

These pics don't probably show it well enough, but what I had on was very light lilac in the inner corner of the lid, baby blue in the middle, and light green on the crease and outer corner (there where you'd put the dark color if you'd do more classic look). Also, I used lilac eyeliner to line my lower lash line, and liquid liner for the winged liner. As you can totally tell, I was trying to use some false lashes, but as I had very, very poor quality glue, they didn't stick as well as they shoud've. Well, you live and you learn, right?

 photo DSC07775Large.jpg

For the lips I just went for this cute baby pink lipstick, followed by some nude gloss. Nothing that exciting, but I didn't want to ruin the look by going crazy with the lips.

So, for a change, a bit of a makeup post.

Would you like to see more makeup stuff here, like review, swatches, my favorite lists, recommendations, tutorials...? Let me know, I'd like to know what you think ♥

I will go now, and try to get as many things as possible ready before work. I wanna wish you all Happy Easter, or whatever holiday you may be celebrating this weekend. There will be a couple of posts even if I'm not sitting at the computer at all this weekend, so stay tuned and check them out if you have some free time. ;)

Have a fantastic weekend, lovelies! ♥
