MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

Is it possible not to fall in love with this new collection from OPI! Just look at those stunning images. Some of them are very Frejya-esque.  Beautiful blonde with long braided hair and piercing icy blue eyes in cool-toned clothes and stunning silver jewelry…I’ve got a bit carried away, after all I wrote my final work for uni about Scandinavian culture.

Anyway, I am very pleased to see a collection dedicated to Scandinavia, if you did not notice that already.

Recipe Of August: Summer Tarts

If you follow me on Instagram you already saw the photo of the tart I made the other day. It was inspired by Liberty London Girl originally but I always make my own variants, and I have tried a lot, and they all were very good.

It is a crowd pleaser, and it is extremely easy to make,easier than pizza.

You’d only need a pre-made  puff pastry and the toppings of your choice. I personally went for chicken fillet which I’ve milled  in the blender, finally sliced tomatoes, cheese, basil, oregano,  parsley, sea salt and all kinds of pepper I had at home. I also did the other one that day with

My hair removal of choice is waxing (maybe I should write a post about it, as quite a few people asked me to). But the downsides of such method are ingrown hairs and bumps which are not sexy, at all.

Tend Skin Liquid for ingrowth hair review

But there is a solution for that! And that is Tend Skin. What it is? Long story short – this is basically a liquid which contains aspirin and has an anti-inflammatory and calming effect. As the result, there are no more red irritated bumps and pesky ingrown hairs.
