I'm a girl who loves beauty products, even though I haven't always been very keen on them, so I decided to start a beauty blog, where I share beauty product reviews with others and tell you about both the worst and best beauty products out there, according to me.

I'm also hoping it will make beauty and makeup more fun, even for those who are not beauty addicts already.

One of the cutest make up palettes I have seen in a while

I have to admit I have absolutely no idea if the make up itself is any good or not though, but don't you think this palette is well worth just for the cute hearts?

Current beauty wish list

(In case anyone needs ideas regarding what to get me for the holidays)
Prada Candy perfume
Since I have been craving this perfume (of which I have heard VERY good things!) for a while now, so I want to see if it lives up to all the hype.
Clean miniature perfumes
Because I have not had the chance to try all of these yet, and I love their fragrances.

MOR Cosmetics Lip Delight
Because I love lip balms, and especially ones that come in cute packaging.
MOR Cosmetics Marshmallow Lip Balm
See above. And marshmallow flavour on lip balm sounds really yummy!

Too Faced Eye Shadow Primer
For two reasons: 1. I need a new eye shadow primer badly. and 2. I really want to try something from this brand!

Clarins Colour Definition 3D Radiance Face Powder
Because of the gorgeous packaging and it sounds like it really does wonders for your skin as well.

Dior Garden Clutch

Today I am absolutely swooning over the Dior Garden Clutch from the Spring 2012 Dior collection, so gorgeous!

I seriously think this has to be one of the prettiest forms of packaging that I have seen for make up in a long time. Love it!

Lashes are big for Spring 2012

Just take a look at this pic from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 show.
I have to admit I have never been very good at applying fake lashes myself though. I've worn them, sure, but then a professional make up artist always applied them for me. So if I want to try this trend next Spring, I really should start practising now...
Hmm... Not sure it's one of the most fun beauty projects I can think of at the moment though. So maybe I will give it some more thought?

New buy: OPI/Avoplex Cuticle Oil to Go

A few days ago I had a manicure and pedicure (a treat I really enjoy, but sadly I don't have enough time to go every week or even every other week). The woman who did the manicure noticed that my cuticles were very dry, and recommended that I start using cuticle oil on a regular basis. She suggested a specific product too: The Avoplex Cuticle Oil to Go, which is very easy to carry around with you, and use whenever you think of it.

She said I should use this 2 or 3 times a day, every day, and even though I have been using it for less than a week now, I have already seen great results. And the best thing is that your nails look great even just a minute after you applied it.

Avoplex is somehow connected to OPI, so all OPI fans who have dry cuticles too, should definitely consider getting this!

My best non make up or beauty product related tips

Of course beauty is not only about products and make up. You can also feel and look more beautiful by doing other things than just shopping for stuff. (But of course the shopping part is more fun in general)

That’s why I decided to write down some of my best non-product related beauty tips. These are things that really work for me:

*Spend a lot of time outdoors. This works wonders especially in the winter, since you feel better and look better if you get enough fresh air.

* Eat healthy stuff. You don’t have to eat just healthy stuff if you don’t want to, but try to eat them as regularly as possible. I try to eat something healthy at least twice a day, so if I had a very unhealthy lunch, I try to get some fruit or veggies in the afternoon. Find a way that works for you, and make sure you get enough veggies, nuts, fruits and vitamins in whatever way you prefer. Just make it a habit!

* Eat a good breakfast. It boosts your energy right from the start of the day, which makes you look less tired, and therefore: More beautiful.

* Spoil yourself in different ways. This doesn’t need to mean buying things, but give yourself enough time to do things you enjoy on a regular basis, whatever those things may be. I love reading, so I always make sure I have the time to read for at least half an hour a day (usually a whole hour), and I plan fun things that I enjoy to do for the weekends. When you feel good and relaxed, you also look good and relaxed!

* Ask your friends for beauty tips. We all have them, we just need to get better at sharing them. So ask around to see what others do, in order to see if that could work for you as well!

The OPI Spring 2012 collection is looking great!

It's inspired by Holland, and the names are hilarious as usual, such as "Vampsterdam", "A roll in the Hague" and so on.

My own faves are "Pedal Faster Suzi"

"Thanks a WindMillion".
