My Goals For The Summer 2017

Vanha1

Hello loves!

Summer is just about to start and so are the vacays for some.

Something I do every year is to plan my goals for the summer. I find that this makes my summer even more special. Usually if I don’t have a routine or tasks to do I just turn lazy and suddenly time just flies by.

So, I decided to share my goals with you. Here we go!

Exercise regularly. This summer I really want to concentrate on exercising and build some muscle. I am trying to gain weight so the muscle build up will help in that too. My plan is to exercise three (3) times a week. Maybe some yoga in the weekend mornings too.

Reading a book. I have never had the concentration of reading a hole book. This has always been an issue for me. I get bored easily if there isn’t something that keeps my interest. So, this summer I really want to read a book. I bought Fifty Shades of Grey years ago. I haven’t watched the movies because I want to read the books first. Watching the movies are kinda a reward for myself. You can recommend good books that are easy to read.

Quality time with babe. I have honestly been so busy with my school, internship and health issues that I haven’t had time to spend quality time with my love. Going on a picnic with him and talk about random stuff is a thing I have been dreaming of for quite a while.

Blogging my makeup looks. Some weekends I play with my makeup and recreate looks that have caught my eye on the internet. It’s something that I really enjoy on my free time. One day I had this idea that I could post my makeup looks on my blog. At first maybe once or twice a month…

Get a nice tan. Last year I didn’t go to the beach, yep… This summer I want to go to the beach several times, more than just once and get a nice tan. I am pale as a sheet, but I do tan easily. So, watch out people, coz you’re gonna get blind! By the sun? No, by my paleness.

Going to Sephora. I have never been to Sephora so it would be the first time for me. In Finland, we don’t have Sephora (crying on the inside). The nearest one is in Sweden, which isn’t even far away. We are planning to travel to Stockholm with my boyfriend this summer, gladly. I have been gathering a shopping list to Sephora for a while now. Stay tuned for that post!

What are your plans for the summer?

The Balm Highlight & Lipstick Combo For Spring/Summer

dav

Hello loves!

So, the Mary-Lou Manizer has made my days even brighter with its presence on my face. I have never been much of a highlighter girl, until now. That’s why I laughed and was amazed that Mary made me fall in love with highlights.

First of all, Mary-Lou Manizer is soft, blends like a dream, is pigmented as hell and still manages to look natural on the skin. It is the perfect champagne shade that looks great almost on every skin tone.

I have owned Mary-Lou Manizer for a long time. Sadly, I have not used it. I was so excited when I got it in my hands last year in October. I gave it a swipe and swatched it on the back of my hand. It didn’t bring me any excitement…

Now that I think about it, it might of been due to the fall time. In the fall I don’t really gravitate towards a sunlight look. But, since now it’s spring I dig it up from the back of my drawer and tried swatching it again. Yes, now it’s your time!

I have been rocking it for a week now and have been wearing it on the high points of my cheeks, bridge of the nose, as an inner corner highlight, on my cupid’s bow and as a lid shade now and then.

To make the highlighter pop even more I have combined it with Meet Matt(e) Hughes Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Sentimental.

Sentimental is a bright pink! It’s a lightweight, matte lipstick that dries quickly. It smells like true peppermint. It’s a very strong scent but quite refreshing and feels cooling on the lips actually, which is appreciated on the hot days of spring and summer.

The consistency of it is thin and quite drying. So I wouldn’t recommend this if you suffer from extremely dry lips.

One great thing is that you don’t need to be afraid of the lipstick sliding off during the day. It doesn’t budge, the stay power is real. Since micellar water alone doesn’t remove it, I use a cleansing oil before the micellar. Still it shows a hint of shade after removal.

The combination of the highlight and the lipstick looks so radiant. Added with just a little bit of mascara, brows and contour, you are good to go. It’s a bold look and a great hangover makeup. Wearing this combo makes me feel like a goddess that is ready to turn into a full time beach babe, haha!

Thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed it!

Have you tried the Mary-Lou Manizer or any other The Balm products?

The Start

Hello for the first time. I am Heidi. I am really exited to finally start my very own blog.

My site is shortly about lifestyle and beauty. It consists of my makeup and beauty obsessions and my life. I have always had a passion for beauty related goods. When I was a kid my mother used to have her makeup vanity cramped with lipsticks and perfumes. I was so exited to watch her use her beloved Lancome lipstick and apply some mascara.

As for me, I am 24 years old and I’m from Finland. Currently I live in an apartment with my boyfriend. We own a beautiful baby bunny Luna. She makes her absolute best to cheer our days. I am half Chilean and Finnish, a big sister, a cinnamon bun lover and a teaholic. I have a degree in audiovisual communications and currently I am studying sales and customer service. Also, I have an unconditional love for fashion. This was somewhat shortly my background.

So welcome to my site! Hope you enjoy it here.

Till next time.
