Now that I'm done with all the assignments for this semester I slightly changed my make up equipment to finally get in holiday mood - I used two eyeshadows which are very different but work together very well. I used the glittery black one as a thin eyeliner and applied the light pink-violet shimmering one on the lower lashline to make my eyes look brighter. The black eyeliner ensures the right amount of drama whereas the pearly pinky highlighter on the lower lashline provides a rather romantic look. Glamour Daze is the mini holiday collection from MAC and sums up the spirit of the festive season. And so does the names of the two shades:

A while back I talked to you about my first Saidi shawl which I still love to wear to add an interesting touch to my outfits. The model I'm wearing in these pictures has a less prominent print but the deep red color is so beautiful that I was drawn to it immediately.
Saidi offers 20% off your purchase until the 25th of December. If you're looking for a unique multi purpose shawl I'd say this is a great opportunity.
Shawl: c/o Saidi, model Abu Gamal
Nails: Essie Licorice with Matte about you topcoat

When it gets very cold I often end up being dressed very casual and comfortable in dark pieces, as it was the case on a particularly freezing and windy day last week. I am having quite some fun with my manicures though as you can see in the second picture. When everything else I'm wearing feels kind of blah, the colors on my nails provide the much needed change.

Silk for your skin - this is my first time trying out silk cocoons to exfoliate and massage my face. It feels very soothing and it's fun to explore new options of anti-aging products. The pure silk contains the protein sericin, which helps to prevent skin aging.
How to use: Place the cocoon on to the end of your fingertip and damp it with warm water. Then gently massage your face or spots of your face. The cocoon can be used 2-3 times.
You can get the beauty silk cocoons at the twist.shop!
(all beauty products from the twist are organic!)
Anyone already using beauty silk cocoons?

I needed a break from school and work and decided to dye my hair this weekend! It's been quite a while since I wanted a dark cherry shade. After doing some research I went for Garnier dark blueberry, the result: A myriad of shades! Depending on light color, incidence of light, daylight - the color scheme goes from complete black to violet, reddish-brown and cherry. First I was pretty overwhelmed, but now I really like the variety of shades. It's not as flashy as it seems, it's rather discrete. Since I have no experience with red coloration I don't know if it's the norm, but if you like the playful character of it then I really recommend this product. Minus points are the pretty intense smell and excess hair color when you wash your hair though..
Nevertheless, with all these different tones I won't get tired of the coloration easily :)
