My Makeup Collection

Let me redefine the title… it’s just what makeup I own. There’s no collection of any sort. I don’t apply it as much as girls my age, but I love owning it. So here’s what I currently have inside my make-up pouch:

So this is the make-up pouch, which I got from H&M while on holiday in Budapest. It’s a transparent pouch with salmon/baby pink lining and a golden zipper.

Kelly Brook @ New Look
This is my nail-polish collection which I got for myself a few Christmases ago. It’s by Kelly Brook from New Look. I think I got it for about 15 euros, not entirely sure.

These are all the makeup brushes I own. I should probably invest in more, shouldn’t I? I only use the big powder brush; I haven’t even used the others once!

Limited Edition Nautical Collection @ Sleek – Matte Me @ Sleek

These are my two more recent buys from Roseberry, my go-to for makeup as of recently. The staff was so helpful with me when I was struggling to choose the ‘Birthday Suit’ type colour, and they gave me a free red lipstick with the purchase (the Limited Edition Nautical Collection)!

i-Divine Limited Edition Whimsical Wonderland Palette @ Sleek – i-Divine Bad Girl Palette @ Sleek

I also got these two eyeshadow palettes from Roseberry, which colours are sooo beautiful and vibrant, which is what I’m hoping I’ll be when I wear these babies!

I got this eyeshadow palette for free with a magazine a couple years ago. I use the smokey one as you can tell from my brushes.

The first one’s an eyeliner and the rest are eyebrow pencils. I use different ones depending on how light or dark my hair colour looks.

I bought this 3-in-1 cover all mix from the Make-Up Store. The reddish one is used to cover redness, the yellowish one to cover dark circles, and the concealer one is a highlighter.

MASSIVE Budapest/Vienna Haul!

Hey everybody! Welcome back to my blog!

As a few of you may already know, from the 1st until 5th of August I was on holiday with my older sister. We travelled to Budapest and also spent a day in Vienna. It was an amazing adventure and I’ve seen so many things, and enjoyed learning about a whole new culture (as I usually do when travelling to a new country).

I will be showing you what I bought in relation to fashion, accessories, souvenirs and more (in no chronological order).

Let’s start shall we…?

I got this first piece from Stradivarius. It’s a blue playsuit with half-length sleeves and a floral print. It shows the cleavage a it too much for my likings so I’ll be sewing a piece of it.

The next thing I got is yet another playsuit, but this time from a store called C&A. It’s got thin spaghetti straps, and a lace detail on the V-neck and thigh bits. It’s completely covered with a cute little floral print on a black background. I’ve already worn this on my way back home from the holiday, and let me tell you: it looks and feels good wearing it!

C&A

Next up are these two cute tank tops from Tezenis. One has a comic strip-style type of print, while the other has cute little bananas all over it.

Up next is this cute bikini top and bottom (not as a set) from H&M. I needed a girlier bikini than the swimsuit I have and this was the result! I love the floral print on the top and the crochet-like part on the bottoms.

These shorts are also from H&M. I love everything about it, from the print down to its style.

I also got this cute Pusheen pyjama trousers from H&M. I couldn’t resist, I just had to buy them!

This top is also from H&M. It has birds perching on a plant all over it. Love it!

These trousers are also from H&M (will this ever end? Nope, up next are accessories!). They’re a big big round the legs but I like how it fits.

H&M

Up next are the accessories I got from H&M, which are… a lot, as much as I bought clothes.

I got this baby pink compact selfie stick, which I needed as I was borrowing my dad’s for the holiday. Worth every penny.

Also got this transparent make-up bag, which I needed as my old one is a bit too small.

I also bought an eyebrow fixing brush and this body spray in a pink macaroon smell. The smell is AMAZING.

H&M (apologies for the blurry photo!)

Also from H&M is this cute pug sharpener. For those who know me really well, they know how much I love pugs… and dogs in general.

I also got two pairs of shoes, one black and the other with blue and white stripes.

Next up are items I got from Claire’s! They had a buy 6 pay for 3 offer so me and my older sister got three items each, and this are my things!

First up is this cute polar bear with sparkly blue eyes, which I named Gunther (for those who watch Adventure Time know what I mean).

Second and third item I got were these two beautiful golden hair bands, one with leaves on it and the other with little flowers.

I got this mini USB ventilator from a store called Colosseum in Vienna. Was slightly disappointed that it didn’t work when I tried it at my hotel room.

I think I got these from Colosseum as well. They’re white trainers with a rubbery type front. They’re a bit dirty as I’d worn them with the C&A playsuit already shown previously.

Colosseum (I think)

I also don’t know where I got this tshirt from, but for sure it’s from Vienna. It has cat-themed graphics all over it, which I think are cute.

From Promod I got this comfy dress. It has a bit of rope that ties round the waist and has yellow flowers all over it. And the bonus? It has POCKETS. I love pockets on dresses.

I got this wire from a store called Tiger. It had loads of home decors and school supplies. It was my sister’s heaven (she’s a teacher).

From a vintage store I got these pair of sunglasses and this cute shirt.

… And there’s the mandatory souvenirs. I collect snowglobes, which is why I bought two: one from Vienna and the other from Budapest.

That’s all I got from Budapest and Vienna. I hope you enjoy my hauls. If you want more of these posts please let me know! That’s it from me; see you on the flip side!
