Hello lovelies! How are you today? I've been chilling home and doing some school stuff as well as meal prepping for the week. So it's been quite nice. I've been also prepping next month's posts, and I hope you all will enjoy them once we get to those. But today, let's continue the 31-day challenge with the animal print mani. Or, to be precise, with two of those.

Hello babies! How are you all today? I've been quite busy this week with all sorts of stuff, but I'm sure you are happy to know that some of it has to do with next month's videos. I would love to have a Christmas calendar up here, but we'll see. I have an idea of a schedule, but I'm not sure if I'm able to actually create everything in time. So not promising you a calendar yet, but if you'd like that, I try to have one up for you. Anyway, today I have an outfit with a pair of leather pants for you, and I hope you will like it!

Hey lovelies! How are you today? I'm super excited since I finally get to talk about a cool cooperation I am lucky enough to be part of. So, who else loves makeup? And who else wants to find products that are as natural as possible? If you answered yes to either, or both, you might be in for a treat today. I will share you my experience with Clarria Cosmetics.
Clarria describes themselves on their website like this: "Based in New York City, Clarria Cosmetics is your trusted brand when it comes to elegant, opulent, and luxurious beauty products for women. We offer top quality natural and organic cosmetic products that are safe for the skin. On our site, you can choose from a wide selection of beauty products in order to ensure that you get the perfect item that will help you satisfy your beauty needs." Clarria is a new line of cosmetics, and when I heard they're organic, I knew I had to try them out.

Hey lovelies! I hope you're doing well today. I've been a little MIA a couple of days because my cousin's fiance is living with us for a little while and I needed to adjust to that a bit - meaning cleaning the place, making a good space for him to be in, and stocking our kitchen with food. As well as doing some school work yesterday. I will be more active soon though, and today, I'm sharing my favorite gluten free donuts (and how to make them) in this post.

Hello lovelies! How is your weekend going? I've been enjoying the day off and the company of my hubby, and even though the weekend has been shadowed by the events in Paris, it's been a lot fun. Which I think is what world needs, good vibes and fun - and love. So for that reason, I'm blogging today about easy-go subject with pretty pictures and as always, I'm hoping this will be a fun one for you. So let's see some nails, shall we?

Hey sweeties! Hope you're having an amazing day today. I wrote this one for you last night, since I knew I wouldn't be on my laptop tonight. But instead, I'm watching live sports with guys. So I'm leaving you with this outfit post and I'm hoping you all will like it.

Hey lovelies, and happy Wednesday! How are you doing today? As it is very grey, gloomy and wet outside, I figured I should share one of the go-to hot beverages I have for these kind of weathers. I'm sure many of you would enjoy this. It's green tea latte, the healthier version of the Starbucks drink. For this you can use the nut milk I showed the recipe for in this post, but basically any milk you love will do the trick. I just love nut milks on my drinks because they are easier to my body the regular dairy milk. This recipe is picked up here, but mine didn't come up nearly as pretty. It tasted amazing though!

Hey lovelies! How has your week started? I surprised myself yesterday by not being on a computer at all, but then got up a bit earlier today to write this little intro here and schedule this one to a humane hour of the day. (And didn't publlish it before 7 when I was writing this.) Today I wanted to share another Nail Stash post. The point of these posts is to give you a chance to see some the different colors there are out there, and to scare myself out of buying new ones. (Which so far isn't so successful, oops.)
But let's get started with it:
From left to right, all by China Glaze:
Razzle Me, Dazzle Me is a part of Glitz, Bitz 'n Pieces collection, and although it's supposed to be light pink and black, the pink is so pale I totally sort this to greys. And yes, I will be a bit irrational with my sorting since I try to sort the glitter ones under the colors as well.
Glitz N Pieces is a sister to the first one, and instead of pink, it has silver. What I didn't mention in the first one is that these polishes have different sizes of hex glitter and some bar glitter in them. It's a cool combo for glitter sandwiches and for topping solid colors as well.
Lorelei's Tiara a beautiful silver glitter polish with some light blue glitters in it. This one would be perfect for some winter/Frozen inspired manis. There's so much fine glitter that you can actually make it opaque with couple of coats. Which I love in a glitter polish.
Some Like It Haute is dark grey glitter mix with some holo silver glitters in it. Like the previous one, this also makes an opaque finish alone - although this as well needs the couple coats to not show the nail through.

Hello lovelies! I hope you have had a fun weekend. I've been chilling at home and sorting out my closet a bit (still quite a way to go since I have way too much stuff). I feel like I need to get so much thrown out before putting our Christmas decor out so that I can feel super good about the holidays. And speaking of holidays, I have some kind of related recipes coming up soon. And as usual, they will be gluten free. But today, I'm sharing a little outfit with you all:

Hello lovelies! How are you today? Having fun weekend? I'm just sorting out my closet, enjoying candles, some treats and hanging out with the boys (with a little help of Skype). But I really wanted to take a break from cleaning and talk to you all. And share some nails, because that's what I do. These are the next ones for the 31-day challenge, rainbow nails and gradient nails.
Ready for that? Let's go!
So the first mani is the rainbow one. I loved how I could use so many colors in this one and decided to go with a rainbow gradient. With some glitter on top.

Heya babes! I hope you're having a good day today. I had fun at work but I am very happy to start the weekend tomorrow by cooking lots and prepping some blog stuff. And reorganizing my closet. While doing all that, I will be sipping some of my favorite coffees, done with cashew milk.
And since buying nut milks can get somewhat pricey sometimes, it's good to know how to make them yourself. Which makes the milk healthier, too, because it's all natural stuff. Want to learn how to do your own? Read on:

Hey lovelies, and happy Tuesday to you all! I hope you're having a fun day. I had such a nice day at work, followed by a chill evening, and I received a package from one of my cooperations this autumn (that I showed already on Instagram and Snapchat). A post about the cooperation will follow later this week, so stay tuned for that. Today, however, I want to show this Autumn look with fur vest and a dress.
Faux fur vest: Only Jacket: secondhand Knit dress: secondhand Tights: gift from my mom Boots: Andiamo Bag: gift from mom Necklace: gift from friend Rings: JC, Gina Tricot Aviators: H&M
Kind of lot of pictures of this look, but let's not mind about that, okay? This look was fun to wear and I love the knit dress a lot. Some might say the tights are too much, but I felt the dressed the look down nicely on that sunny but chilly day. Also, the print in them fits the bag quite nicely so that's always fun. That vest is something I would love to wear more, but I'm terrible at styling it. But with a little practice, I'm sure I can figure some outfits for you to see.
But what do you all think about this look? Let me know in the comments!
Now, I'm off to shower and evening stuff, but I will talk to you tomorrow here on the blog. In the meantime, follow me on social media for more updates - and to see when I post something new on the blog. This week, I've planned some fun things for the social media accounts, so stay tuned there to see it all. Love you all so much!
Have a lovely day ♥

Hey babes! How are you all? I've had a chill day today at home, and been feeling a bit under the weather today. Luckily a marathon of O.C. and a huge cup of tea got me through it until hubby got home. He always makes me feel better. Also, I did new nail art, so it's definitely appropriate to share a couple of new designs from the #31DC2015 with you. So here are the black & white and metallic designs!
First up is the black and white design. I was scrolling through images of black and white nails and was inspired to do this graphic, geometric design on them. I was really feeling the stripes that day, and I still love looking at this design.
I think the studs were such fun finishing touches to the design. That's actually the thing I loved most about this!
For this design I used White On White and Liquid Leather, both by China Glaze. All the studs are from Born Pretty Store and I used striping tape to create the geometric shapes.
Next up is my metallic design for the challenge. I had this duochrome metallic shade I really wanted to try out, so I painted my nails with it and stamped leaves all over it to create a fun Autumn design.
I like how this turned out even though I don't usually love shades like this on my nails. Somehow I ended up buying this one anyway and I love it quite a bit.
The polishes I used for this were China Glaze Cabin Fever, Seas The Day, Roguish Red and Stoked To Be Soaked. The leaves were done with Konad stamping set, using the plate m20.
What do you all think about these designs? Let me know in the comments below!
That's all I have for you today, I hope you enjoyed these nail designs. Today I will be posting something else, but in the meantime remember to follow me on social media to stay updated about the blog and other things as well. I will go now to watch TV with the hubby and then get some rest, but I will be more chatty here tomorrow because I'm sure I'll feel all better after a good night's sleep. See you tomorrow!
Have a fabulous week ♥
