Handmade mobile case

Dear Readers!
This is my mobile case that I made by hand. I used various crystals, charms and Swarovski crystals. I really enjoyed the process of making it, but you do need patience since it is  a very tedious job.
It took me about 3-4 hours to complete the case.



I would like to know what you think about the result! :)

Pictures from London

Hello My Dear Bloggers!

I am sorry I have not been posting for a while.  I had too much going on around me at Uni  and  at home. However, now I’m going to be good and try to post more often!

I found some pictures from last year when I was in London in one of the trendy bars called Molton House    
http://moltonhouse.com )and I have decided to share them with you.  The blonde girl next to me is my good friend from Latvia. She is a very pretty girl as you can see.  She is coming to see me soon and I felt nostalgic looking at these old photos.

Good old times!



Thank you  for stopping by!!! :)

OPI Shatter FOTD



Hi all! My recent purchases were OPI Teenage Dream and OPI Shatter.

I decided to treat my toes with the new purchases. First, I applied Sally Hansen Hard as Nails as a base coat. Then on top 1 coat of Teenage Dream.


When the Teenage Dream dried solid I applied OPI Shatter just one coat. Within a second the cracks have appeared. When this happens you can put a top coat which not only protects the polish, but also enhances the black shatter.



Next was my fingernails. For them I chose Model Own 25 Carat Gold  and OPI Shatter
The procedure was exactly the same as for the toes. The only difference was that I put 2 coats of gold polish and not 1, which made all the difference. 


I love the outcome :)


Verdict:   OPI Teenage Dream is such a gorgeous colour and you only need one coat to see the full effect. 
OPI Shatter works great without fuss. Such an exciting product!
However, shatter effect does not really stand out if its done on your toes. I would only use it on the fingernails.

Thanks for stopping! Have you tried this product before and what do you think?

MY AMAZING SHOPPING HAUL :)



Hello everybody! Today was a brilliant day! No, the weather was still cold and windy. However, I felt great, because I purchased some cool stuff today for myself including something for the Valentine’s day.


***
 At Sally’s I bought Wella Color Touch semi-permanent colour No 4/0 Medium Brown for my hair roots. The girls are so nice in there and very helpful. They showed me new OPI nail polish shatter and I just had to have it! I got also OPI Teenage Dream polish. And as a freebee the girl popped in to my bag a small bottle of Rusk Deep Shine Oil. 


***
After a long search I found a very sexy outfit from Ann Summers that cost me £18 and saucy  book about interesting positions in bed for Valentine’s day. I can’t wait to surprise my boyfriend J

***
Moreover, I wanted to watch something girly and I decided to get The City on DVD  1st season for £18 from HMV. I was going to get The Hills, but they were out of seasons that I haven’t watched yet.

***
Another special gem that I discovered in Debenhams is Urbam Decay  2x Primer potions for only £15.

***
The rest of  the amazing bargains I got from Pound Land :
Garnier Sun-kissed face which is a facial tinted moisturiser
Dove Summer Glow Self Tanning Face Cream
Valentine’s Day card
Valentine’s Day present bag
2x Sticky beads for phone decoration (that is another of my hobbies)

***
This is what I collected so far  for the V Day. 
P.S.The umbrella came free with Givenchy aftershave box set at Debenhams.


Thank you for stopping. What do you think about my buys? What next would you like to read on my post?
Have  a great day!!!

Famous Beauties


Hey, pips! 
Just wanted to share with you my admiration for some of the famous beauties. I  have a dark hair at the moment and I was researching a lot to find brunette celebrities with beautiful make up looks to copy. Eventually, I found few of my favourites. I admire their looks and I think that they would suit my complexion too.

Mila Kunis -  is an American actress that was originally from Ukraine. I saw her first in American comedy sitcom "That 70's show". I love her acting and I find her quiet funny. The last movie I saw her in was "Black Swan".





Megan Fox - I love her for her petite body, pretty face and bad ass image.




Adriana Lima - Brazilian model. She most famous for her modelling work at the Victoria Secret fashion Shows.








Kim Kardashian - American socialite, actress and a model. I've never watched her shows and I only found out about her on the net.  I respect the fact that she is proud of hair curvaceous body.   I myself have curves and I don't think that there is anything wrong with that. 
Her make up artist is Mario Dedivanovic. You can find his blog at http://blog.makeupbymario.com/



Thanks for stopping by. Your comments are welcome. 
Have a great day!!!

Tips for Valentine's Day !!!


Have you thought about the Valentine’s Day yet?  If not you should, because its 14 days left.  Therefore, due to the panic of not being prepared on time I did a little research and threw few ideas that may help me or anyone to be organised for this Valentine’s Day.  So far, I only bought a gift for my boyfriend.  It is a men’s aftershave + free man’s umbrella from Debenhams.  

So below is few essential items that are vital to create the romantic atmosphere.
Valentines essentials:

·                               To look extra sexy on the day. Wear your sexiest and reviling outfit. If you need to buy some you can visit Victoria Secret online site, Ann Summers or if on budget Primark store.

















·                 Candles - if you are on the budget you can purchase tea light candles, if you do use them make sure you put each of the candle into a candle holder to prevent a fire.
You can also use scented candles or essential oils.  The essentials oil you can purchase from Boots or Holland and Barrett.
 Cinnamon and Vanilla – are most popular smells amongst women and men;  Lavender – relaxing;  YlangYlang-soothes and lifts the mood; Oranges-since Egyptians time this sent was used to arouse and uplift the mood; Jasmine and many more.   I found a website that has aromatherapy recopies  for a romantic massage or to create the mood for love (http://birchhillhappenings.com/love.htm)


·         Flowers – red/pink/white roses

·         Theme – Red, Black, Pink, White,  Paper Hearts, Candy hearts, Rose petals, Red /Pink/White balloons. 














  • ·    Food – treat him to his favourite dish. If not sure spaghetti is very easy to make and can be quite a romantic meal with a delicious desert afterwards.  Chocolate, asparaguses, basil, almonds, oysters are classed as few of the aphrodisiacs for romantic meal.




·         Drinks- depend on what you both like to drink. My boyfriend is not drinking at the moment so it will probably be juiceJ


·                Present  - cuddly toy , men’s aftershave, sexy underwear.  If you are on the budget than it’s worth pop in to your local Pound shop. I went to one in Preston and they had a section for valentine’s day decorations and gifts. Moreover, you can also be creative and make something like a poem or drawing or a song for him. This will be even more special to your loved one, because it will come from your heart.

·         Romantic videos – You’ve got mail,  When Harry met Sally, the Notebook(although this movie makes me cry at the end which may not be a good idea to do on the romantic night), Love actually,  Chocolate, Pride and Prejudice,  Valentine’s Day,

·                    Music- you can collect all your favourite romantic songs on one album and play it on the night.  I personally like "Sexual Healing" by Marvin Gaye; "I'd Die for You" by Bon Jovi , "I Want to Know What Love Is" by Foreigner. When I am in the romantic mood I also like to listen to artists such as Mariah Carey and Bryan Adams.

I have also thought of few romantic ideas you can do on this day.

Plan of action.

1.     Surprise him with sexy underwear. Set the bedroom with lots of candles, rose petals on the bed, romantic music, and exotic smells. Maybe do a sexy dance for him to relax the mood.


2.    Prepare delicious meal and eat it at the candle lit table.


3.    Rent out sexy or romantic movies and watch it together cuddled up.


4.    Have a bath together if you bath will allow you to do that. If not, shower can be sexy too.


5.    Go out for something to eat at a cosy romantic restaurant.



I also found very interesting website http://www.topdatingtips.com . This site provides great romantic ideas.
