March favourites


Finally, monthly favourites on time :) I don't have a lot of new favourite products this month so I'll keep it short and sweet.

Hurraw! Black cherry tinted lip balm
I'm obsessed with Hurraw! lip balm. They're very oily in consistency but don't sit on your lips for hours. They make my lip super soft and I always use at least one. This month I've been reaching for Black cherry. It smells amazing and also leaves slight reddish tint on my lips.

Happy Jackson High five! shea butter hand cream 
I admit I bought it for the packaging :) But it turned out to be a great hand cream. It smells amazing, like Yankee candles Soft blanket <3 Shea butter is not the main ingredient (8th place on INCI list) so the scent sadly probably comes from some fragrance. The cream sink into skin quickly and is great for date time use.

Avon Mesmerize
This was actually a gift from the very nice Mikela, author of Loving from Berlin. This perfume has notes of white peach, pink peony and sandalwoodWhat I can say is that it smells good :) Very oriental and sweet so it was perfect for the past colder weather.

Weleda nail oil pen
I got this little gem in a giveaway hosted by the gorgeous Sara from Passing fancy. Oil smell amazing, fresh yet fruity and the pen distributes just the right amount of oil. I use this pen on the go if my cuticles start to look sad and before taking photos.

Crane sport "smart" watch/bracelet
Had to include this non beauty fave. I'm not really a fan of watches but I do like anything that motivates me to move my ass. Recently I've been using this Crane bracelet that works as a watch, but also counts your steps, tracks you sleep, activity and more. It connects to an app on your phone and it allows you to track your daily activities. I'm totally hooked and now I compete with myself to reach my goals each day :)

Thanks for stopping by**

Oriflame Red classic


Red is an all time classic nail color and I love wearing all shades of red. Oriflame Red classic is just what the name says. Bright engine red creme that will look good on most complexions. Name isn't the only thing that's classic about this polish. It has a standard brush, which is easy to work with and a good formula. I needed two coats for good opacity. It didn't last long on my nails but that might be because I had a lot of dishes to wash that week :) I'm sure I'll give it another try in the future, this polish is a stunner <3

Essence All that greys TE Roaring red


I know it's kinda jerky to post limited editions products once they can't be bought anymore but I'm willing to do an exception from time to time. In my defense, this stunning polish was a gift I received from my ride-or-die Gin in January, way pass the trend editions selling date.

Essence All that greys TE Roaring red is a dark red polish with red shimmer. The finish is described as Pearly matte. Regular matte can sometimes look a bit chalky and flat but the shimmer in Roaring red gives it that lit from within look. The application was a bit tricky, every mistake is visible and as you can see, any ridges on your nail will show. The durability amazed me, mattes are known for their bad staying power but this polish stayed on my nails the usual 4-5 days.

Empties #1


Today we're going to do something I love and that's talking trash :) I love reading empties post on other blogs so why not make them myself as well. First I must admit that besides nail polish I hoard other personal hygiene/makeup products as well. Lately I've been very good with my "no-buy" and I started finishing more products. Then came Beautiful bloggers Meetup and complicated things with all the gifts but oh well, I won't be complaining too hard :)
