Monthly Favorites

11:42


I keep meaning to keep up with blogging and then always run out of things to blog about. But i'm back (again) to share some of my favorites this month!

First things first, although I still haven't managed to get my hands on a copy of GQ with the Cillian cover, after seeing Peaky Blinders and Dunkirk, I've fallen in love with Cillian and how he portrays his roles, definitely one of my all time favorite actors.

I've recently started wearing liquid lipsticks, my two favorites I've found are for sure kat von d's everlasting liquid lipstick in box n' arrow, this colour is just so flattering and the formula is so perfect, it stays on all day even after eating! My second favorite is Nyx soft matte lip cream in the colour Abu Dhabi, I've purchased quite a few of these all ready in different colours as they are so cheap! But this colour is by far my favorite.

Continuing with the beauty products, I recently bought this Tea Tree BB cream from the bodyshop while I was back in England, I've had some problems with my skin again recently so I needed something light that wouldn't be too cakey for the summer, I love how this sits on my skin and that I don't feel it melting off my face throughout the day. I will definitely be re-buying this!

So one product I splashed out on recently is this "Crème Visage Supernature" from Huygens. This is a french cruelty free brand that I discovered thanks to Birchbox. After using the sample to death, I had to get a full size version as I loved it so much, I feel like it really does help keep my skin clear and moisturized!

The last beauty product I've been loving is Dark Angels from Lush, I've been using this for a few months now and I love how it feels after cleaning my face, It feels more than clean! and although it dyes my sink black every time I use it, I'm definitely going to re-buy this again soon!

Lastly and definitely not least, is the new Killers video/song Run For Cover, I've been a big fan of the killers for a very long time and I'm so excited that they are releasing a new album soon! This song has been on repeat for a few days now and I intend to continue that way!

I hope this was somewhat interesting, and hopefully I will post more often (I say this everytime) from now on ! some exciting things are happening soon so hopefully I will keep updated!

Direwolf Spirithood // Lookbook

12:03


So a few months ago I received an email from Spirithoods saying that the Direwolf shawl was in stock. After hesitating about spending quite a lot of money on something so quickly for a total of one day, I ordered this beautiful hood from their website. Despite the fact that the shipping to France isn't the cheapest, and with all the import tax what hurt a bit, This accessory is so so perfect. My first reaction was to how soft it is. Not to forget how well made and luxurious it feels on. I do not regret one bit this purchase.


I paired this hood with this caged dress from Boohoo.com and a black skirt I bought from ebay a while ago to make this outfit a bit less formal. Also I would like to thank Pablo Delacour for these photos !

My favourite cruelty free brands

09:59


Cruelty-free beauty products are the height of conversation in the blogging world at the moment, and as it should be! These poor animals shouldn't suffer from our consumption of makeup, especially when there are plenty of brands that don't harm any animals in the production of their products. Here is a list of my favourite cruelty-free cosmetic brands that I have tried myself. From high-end to drugstore brands, I've tested quite a few!




After trying Too Faced's Better than sex mascara a while back, I instantly fell in love with this brand. From their packaging design to the fact their scented eyeshadow, Too Faced pays attention to the details of their products. I'd say if you're looking for some perfect nude eye shadow palettes, give Too Faced a look!

As a teenager, I was obsessed with Kat Von D in LA Ink, and now in my twenties, I was thrilled to hear that she was releasing a completely cruelty-free make-up range. After waiting impatiently for the Europe release, I finally got my hands on the Lock-Its Foundation in the colour "44 LIGHT - COOL UNDERTONE" (for once I wasn't the palest colour of foundation!) I was hooked, This full coverage foundation is great for all day wear and will cover anything! I'm also a big fan of her Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks which I own in the colour Bow n' Arrow, it lasts all day even after eating!

I've only recently started using NYX make up as they're now starting selling it in France! I was surprised at how affordable they make up is so I went on a bit of a spree and tried quite a few things already. I'm especially impressed with their liquid lipsticks, in particular the Lingerie colours. I had been searching for a cruelty-free nude lipstick for a while so when I came across this range I fell in love! NYX is a perfect brand for anyone on a budget but still looking for some amazing cruelty-free products.

Another brand I'm obsessed with for their eye shadow products is Urban Decay, Whether you're looking for bold and bright colours, or something more subtle, This brand has what you need. Their super pigmented eye shadows are my go to for the perfect smoky eye. I'm also a big fan of their foundation and concealer for when I feel like treating myself to some high-end makeup.

I hope these recommendations are helpful and let me know what cruelty free brands I should try next! For a complete list of all cruelty free make up brands click here.

Witchy Vibes

08:43



I have always been a fan of dark and spooky photography, so last month I got to shoot with DASKA Photography and channeled my inner witch. I'm in love with my makeup (even if I do say so myself !) I did for these photos, I used my Naked Smoky palette from Urban Decay, along with a black Kajal eyeliner on the lips. Although after these photos I think I need to get my hands on Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the colour Witches!


Everything I'm wearing is from Shein, a black crisscross bodysuit underneath and a black lace beach dress over the top. I love how these looked together and although it's probably not suitable for everyday wear, It's perfect for Halloween !

Indoor Green House • Home Inspiration

I think in another life I was Mowgli from the Jungle Book, because my love of plants has kind of taken over my tiny apartment. The worst part is that I still don't think I have enough! So thanks to Pinterest I keep finding more and more cute ideas for turning my home into a forest. I would like to share some of my favourites with you!

Animation and Illustration

So as I mention in my description, as well as spending a lot of time online, I also enjoy drawing and animating! I studied graphic design for three years and then went on to two years of 2D and 3D animation. After realising that 3D really wasn't for me, I focused on traditional animation and motion design. Although I'm working more in graphic design currently, I still enjoy drawing and I wanted to share some of my most recent work with you!

Christmas

Too Faced Chocolate Shop

11:29


After receiving this amazing Too Faced palette in advance this year, I had to make a post about it because i'm already in love with it. It is one of many gift sets that Too Faced release every year. After having the choice in between The Chocolate Shop or The Grand Hotel Cafe (which I love the Grande Budapest Hotel inspiration going on with this one), I went with the chocolate shop as I love all the colours (maybe even Mint chip and Jingle berry!), the mix of shimmers, mattes and metallics. In addition to this perfect colour scheme, these eyeshadows smell just as promised like chocolate! I thought it was a cute addition to this gift set.

This Palette also contains three minis, Better than sex mascara (my all time favourite), Melted liquid lipstick and Shadow insurance eyeshadow primer. I was excited to try the lipstick as I've been looking for a brown shade for a while (it's harder than you think), After only using the tiniest amount, it's very pigmented and it smells amazing!

So the colours! There are twenty one shades in this palette, along with a highlighter, bronzer and a blush. My personal favourites are Butterscotch, Honey Dip and Gingerdoodle (I'm a big fan of the brown shades ! )


Overall I'm in love with this boxset, it's cute and made a perfect present for Christmas. After testing the different colours for a few weeks, I've noticed how long lasting they are, even with the shimmers that have nearly no fall out at all. I highly recommend Too Faced boxsets for next Christmas for any makeup lovers out there !
