I’ve been wearing Balenciaga Paris perfumes all week and I’ve been loving it a lot! I have to say that I love everything about them: the elegant bottle and the design, the promo photos with the amazing Charlotte Gainsbourg photographed by Steven Meisel and the scent of course.
It is created by Olivier Polge and described as:
” Luminous, sophisticated fragrance with beautiful ingredients shaped in an innovative structure. Both modern and classic, just like traditional haute perfumery . A Chypre Violet with the green, fresh signature of the flower and its leaves, blender into a precious harmony of pure woods . A refined, feminine fragrance with a unique trail”
It’s a wonderful fragrance with violet, airy blossom and delicate peppery notes which is great for day time, office or evening. It has an amazing lasting power and you can feel it even at the end of the day!
And here is the official promo photo and exciting infomation!Read More

I’ve wanted to get a nail polish with such effect for a long time already so I was happy to find GOSH Rainbow. It is basically a clear nail polish with golden flakes. It looks amazing on dark nail polishes but nothing special on bare nails or pastel/light polishes.
I have to say that the effect is great when you apply a thin layer of nail polish. If you don’t – you will get the effect that I got ( looks quite messy and untidy) and I can’t say that I like it. For some reason it also reminds me of leopard prints which I hate.
Anyway, this can be a great product if you can apply it the right way and you have beautiful manicure. And, as you can see, I have mixed feelings about my manicure. Although my girlfriends say that they like it (maybe they just want to be nice lol).
Next time I will try to use it over the green or red nail polishes, should look great for Christmas! (Have you noticed that I use the word “Christmas” a lot lately?!)
And I obviously need to do something to make the length of my nails the same.
If you can’t find GOSH (a brand from Denmark) in your country, I know that Nubar makes a nail polish with similar effect.Read More
People often ask me how to apply liquid eye liner, so I thought I’d just share my experience.
You can start by using eye pencil and then gel eye liner(You can try MAC Blacktrack) to get used to the liners and it’s much easier than liquid eye liner. When you feel confident with these two you can start using liquid eye liners.
If you would like to see someone applying it, you can always watch a tutorial on YouTube, I recommend Lisa Eldridge.
If you are new to liquid eye liners be sure that you get one with a fine tip. I really like Precision Ink by Illamasqua.
And the most important! Remember that you can get perfect only after practicing a lot! When my goal was to become good at applying liquid eye liner I used it every time I could and it got better and better with each application!
Don’t worry if you feel like you can’t make it and your line is a total mess. It just takes time to get there. And as we all know, practice makes perfect! So good luck!Read More
