DIY Dresser before/after - white and diamond knobs

Hi everyone!
After I moved in with my boyfriend we´ve been doing some redecorating.
For example I´ve painted our bedroom and we´re currently waiting for a new wardrobe. It´s still gonna take around a couple of months until it´s finished so we´re having some temporary solutions for the storing of our clothes at the moment. Currently this is just as simple as an IKEA clothing rack with some hanging shelves and this dresser!



I did it all in a hurry. I was already painting the ceiling and the walls, and I just wanted a quick temporary change for this drawer. BUT it turned out quite pretty! Now I´m not sure if I want to get rid of it anymore:)
The knobs are bought off eBay some time ago and they were a perfect match!

My next project is our dining table and chairs, I just need to wait for the weather to get a bit warmer as I need to bring the table outside for cleaning and polishing before painting/staining it.

Do you have any current DIY projects? :)

MILANI Baked Blushes [favorite product]



I´ve never been much of a blush-girl so my collection of blushes is not that huge. Actually, it mainly consist of these four blushes from Milani Cosmetics! Could you ever imagine? 
It gives me a sense of relaxation - knowing I have ONLY four (nice) blushes. 
I really need to take a look into my (hoarding) collection and start some serious clean out soon... 

Anyhoooow, if you're interested in seeing more of these blushes, which have become a favorite of mine - take a look!

NARS Turkish Delight Lipgloss *Swatches/Review*

I had a little last-minute shopping spree at the Bangkok Suvarnabhumi airport on my way home from my holiday in Dec-Jan.
I picked up a few items and one of them was this - a gloss I´ve been wanting for a very long time!
I guess it´s quite known for being one of Kim Kardashians go-to products to get those beautiful milky pink nude lips of hers (MAC Stripdown lipliner, MAC Angel lipstick and NARS Turkish Delight lipgloss). And since I love nude lips more than anything eeelse - of course I wanted it!

*HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT* Honeybee Gardens Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation


Top left: Malibu
Top right + lower left & right: Luminous


I was introduced to this powder sometime last year by my sister and it became an instant favorite of mine.
Used as a powder foundation it melts into my skin and gives great coverage. It doesn´t dry out my skin or settle into any dry patches I may have.
I love that I can wear it both as a full coverage foundation and look fab (I can even use this if I´m going out) or if I just want a natural no-makeup look. It gives me the coverage I need and evens out my skin tone, but it doesn´t necessarily look like I´m wearing any make up at all..

Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Laquers




Finally I got around and did some swatches of these cute glosses.

*HAUL* Redken, Joico, Tangle Teezer, Anastasia, Mineral Hygienics.

I haven´t been too obsessed about caring for my hair lately, and I decided to do something about it and treated my hair with some new products :-)



Tea Time! Yogi Green and Herbal Tea *My Current Favorites*

For the few of you that have read my blog before and communicate with me on Twitter, you probably know that I am a coffee-addict - and there´s no hope for recovery.
But, I also love tea! Mostly in the Fall/Winter time, and guys, that time of the year has arrived and so has my craving for tea.

My latest obsession are from Yogi Tea and I would love to give you a recommendation on my favorites!

*HAUL* New clothes + heels :)


Just another haul post ;-) 
I could´t resist the SALE sign and ended up with some more new stuff.
Loving the shoes and the bikini! The "leather" looking tights disappointed me as it gives me a flat ass and it´s not as stretchy as I thought..
The white top is absolutely GORGEOUS and the grey one is the same as I bought in black, but I just love the style and it goes with everything and it makes my basic outfits just a little more exciting.

BLOGtober 25th - Retail therapy..


Because my life has changed drastically lately and I´m now considering myself as a poor person (read "poor person": "not being able to splurge on whatever I want and spend high amounts of money on expensive shoes and loads of makeup that I don´t need").................... As I said, because of that, I´m not that materialistic anymore... I guess... I´m materialistic insiiiide, but I don´t act it. I haven´t bought a single makeup item in MONTHS. No new clothes, shoes, or anything! Just necessities (for example deodorant and today I got a new foundation after actually using up several I´ve had for ages.....) and boring stuff for the house. Well, actually I´m not living in a house, but an apartment.
ANYWAY, several reason for this situation, enough about that, let´s focus on what I did today and how it made me feel :))
