Makeup, Divas and a Lot of Accessories

Hey lovelies,

Guess who's back on track? ;)

How have you all been? ♥ I wanna start this post by thanking you all for your "get well" wishes, they totally made my day! :) I have the most amazing readers ever!

Does anyone remember me telling about the makeup experiment with my cousin? The thing where I try to model and she puts a ton of makeup on my face?

Well, that's what I was up to on Saturday. I must warn you, these aren't your basic daytime looks. (And, I'm not a model, so the poses are a bit off...) But here you see what we did:

Makeup #1

This one had a little bit of everything in it. My cousin was trying different techniques and colours, and I had fun just sitting there while someone did my face. (Mind you, this was for fun and learning, not for an ANTM shoot.)

Makeup #2

A doll-sort-of look. This would be so cool for Halloween, because at least in my own opinion, I looked scary. :D Anyone else seeing me as a serial killer in here?

I thought so.

We also had a true little diva running around. My cousin's Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.

My fiance tried to pose alongside her, but she refused to share her spotlight. Instead, she demanded petting.

I've never seen a dog that's so eager to pose. I mean really, she comes in front of the camera, sits down and looks adorable - without anyone telling her to. Amazing! ♥

Doggie playing in the snow. ♥ The reason I'm posting these doggie pictures is my love for the breed, I've wanted a toller for a couple of years now, and seeing this little miss here made me love them even more. So, don't be too surprised if one of these years you'll see me holding a puppy like that, calling it my own baby. ;)

Wait, you're saying I should get on already and show some fashion?

Very well. This is the look I had on Saturday, but replayed it yesterday while I was being sick at home and tried to make myself feel better by dressing up - which worked, my fever went totally away. ;) Anyway, here's some casual look. 

Outfit of the day

T-shirt: GinaTricot
High-waist jeans: GinaTricot
Bolero: DIY
Wedges: SpiritStore
Feather necklace: Seppälä
Pearl earrings: H&M
Wing ring: Nelly.com
Flower ring: Seppälä
Bracelet: DIY

So I over-accessorized. A lot. But to me, that's what made the look. ;) I would've loved an oversized, baggy top/shirt with the high-waist jeans, but as I don't own one (yet) I opted for a tee that I tucked loosely in to the jeans. It's not as great as I know a baggy shirt would've been, but... (Btw, don't you love the print? "Feeling lucky?" and the Lucky Cat, Maneki Neko ;))

What do you think about this look? Was it too overboard with the accessories? 

And you know what's left...

Yes, my darlings, nail art. ;)

This time I was inspired by ocean colours and decided to combine it with leopard print, and here's what it looked like. :)

Manicure of the day

I used three different shades of blue/turquoise, trying to create an ombre kind of effect with the help of a makeup sponge, and then added leopard print with the Konad stamping kit. 

Do you like it? 

Because I thought it was cool. :)

Anyways, I'm having an exam, again, tomorrow, so I'd better head on to catch up with my reading, but if this wasn't enough of my babbling, you can check out the latest DIY project here. ;)

I hope you're all having a fabulous week - or what's left of it - and I promise I try to be back on the normal posting rhythm from this day forward. And yes, that means I'll be commenting more to your blogs as well, ain't that nice! (Gosh, it's always so nice to be back ♥)

Blog ya later!

xoxo

      And isn't the tee super adorable? I had to have it because of the print, though it was a teeny bit expensive ;)
