The Sunday Post

Hi Everyone

It's Sunday Evening and I just wanted to blog a little bit, I didn't really want to edit photos or write a review but just a little catch up and a ramble..

Image source here

Uni is getting more manic every day and I am starting some sort of Final Exam 'boot camp' next week for two of my courses. Apparently it is the way to get you through it with good grade. It is expensive but I really want to go. Would you spend 70 pounds for one course 'boot camp' 5 days intensive studying and going through over ten old exams? These five days are spread over a month.. Well I think I will fork out the money.. for both courses, so goodbye 140 quid :'(

On the other hand Downton Abbey started showing here in Iceland tonight and omgosh.. I am a big Downton fan and I really really really love it! What did you think of the first episode? If you want to talk Downton, come and chat with me on my tumblr here. I personally love Mr Branson, Anna and Mr Bates. I almost cried when Lady Mary cried with Mr Carlson! And that Nany West, I would of killed her right then and there. Seriously, I have so much to talk about but I don't want to leave any spoilers here! 
I really recommend this Tv show, it is such a surprise when you start watching it!

Two other shows that I am addicted to right now but will be a subject for another blog post are The only way is Essex and Grey's Anatomy.. 

I have been going over some of my random photos and sometimes it is so difficult to post on Instagram since I have a horrible phone that does not listen to orders, I have loads of random ones and here is one pretty one of one of my favorite nail polishes :)

Here I am wearing China Glaze, Orange Knockout (Neon) and the glitter on my ring finger is Nicole by OPI, Rainbow in the S-Kylie from the Kardashian Collection. 

Also I did a cheeky little MUA shopping the other day and instead of posting a full Haul here on my blog, I posted a picture of the Haul on Facebook, You can check out my Facebook page and like it if you want  :)
Here is what I bought...

From left to right:
MUA matte lipsticks
FashionistA gel liner in Cute Route
FashionstA Shine Stopper, Loose Powder
MUA Matte Foundation
FashionistA Secret Mattifying Primer
MUA Cover All Concealer
MUA Lash Boom

Have you tried any of these products? I have started playing around with them, So far, so good!
I can't wait to try Lash Boom but I have too many mascaras at the moment so I am saving that one.

Enough with the rambling tonight, I am already feeling bit more relaxed so I might go to school tomorrow or just take a day to read and chill, I was at school yesterday (Saturday) and also today so maybe I will just not go.. sometimes you just need days like that right..

Thanks for reading and hopefully you are having a nice Sunday!

My Thoughts On.. Flawless by Sonya Lipsticks

Hi Everyone!

The other day I got a opportunity to try out the new and improved make-up from Flawless by Sonya (from Forever Living Product).
 I was so lucky that I got to keep some of my favorites.

I think that the number one product from the new line are the lipsticks. There are 12 new shades and they range from very dark to the perfect nude.

The formula is great, very moisturizing and stays on. The formula is of course infused with Aloe Vera since this is from Forever Living Product. They do remind me of a mixture between Revlon Lip butters and The Rimmel Moisture Renew lipsticks.
The lipsticks are very pigmented and all the colors give great color pay off except there is one that looks bright red but is not bright red on the lips when applied, I think for those who want to start wearing red lipsticks that one is a great start since it gives a beautiful red tint to the lips. 
There is also a dark purple that is so unique and is great for those who dare to try something edgy and different. And there is also the perfect nude lipstick, that is just so creamy and gorgeous.

But I could just describe you the lipsticks I don't have or show you the ones that I have since I could not put them down and they really stood up for me.

How sleek and pretty is the packaging, the case is this purple metallic with the Sonya logo, so pretty!

Here are the colors I really loved and I think they range from a beautiful pink/nude to a deep plum color for the winter months

It is more nude-pink than the photo shows, if I want to wear subtle nude lipstick, nude/pink is the best way for me to wear them since I am so pale (sometimes I just wear what ever lipstick I want though haha)
It is very creamy and the reason why I picked this color is that it reminds me of a mixture between MAC Angel and MAC Hue, both that are two of my favorite MAC lipsticks.
I think this is the perfect every day lipstick.

This color was the first one that I knew I had to have, It is the perfect summer lipstick but even though we are far into autumn I am still wearing it! It is again so creamy and applies so well. The color itself brightens up my complexion. I really like wearing this color with simple eye makeup, it really looks great.
I was wearing it the other day and I got loads of compliments so I know it looks good when people tell you right?

This is the perfect Autumn lipstick. Such a beautiful deep pink/red shade, It looks great for a bit darker lips in the autumn/winter months. So pretty, I would say the name is spot on and it does look like a pinky Pomegranate fruit.

I think this shade will be great for the Holiday season. It is very deep plum. I love shades like this and I love wearing these kind of lipsticks during the day with bright eyes and neutral blush. It goes on so well and does not bleed outside the lips. I was wearing it the other day for about 3 hours before I had something to eat and then I had to re-apply it. So I think that is a pretty good lasting power.
I would totally recommend it!

So how and where do you get these lipsticks?

They are from Forever Living Products and the brand is Flawless by Sonya.
To get items from FLP you have to buy it from a representative, (similar like Avon). You can search online to find some one near you, they have representative in most countries and if you are in Iceland and you are interested here is the Forever Living Product official website, and here you can find just the Flawless by Sonya on Facebook. :)

I was given these products and these are my honest opinions. I got to try and test the whole range and I only picked items that I really liked and that I would have bought myself with my own money.

Lipstick of the Day #6 Soap and Glory - Pom Pom

Hi Everyone :)

If there is a lipstick that says Autumn/Fall this is it.
This is a Matte lipstick in the most beautiful deep berry/pinky shade

The lipstick is from Soap and Glory, the The Super Colour Fabulipstick Powdercoat Matte Lipstick line, (what a long name haha), but there are only three shades in this matte lipstick line but Soap and Glory do more lipsticks just with a different finishes, more creamy. You can see all the matte ones here on the Soap and Glory website.

When I saw Pom Pom for the first time I knew I had to have it! It is just that kind of lipstick.

The packaging is amazing, since  this is a matte lipstick the case is matte and has the iconic pink writing on the case. 
The lipstick itself has the Soap and Glory logo on it. It is so pretty, I love small details like that. 

How pretty is the color?
Such a great color for this time of year. It is so opaque and even though it is matte it is not drying at all. 
It is kinda deep pink/berry color with blue undertones. I really like the deep berry color and I think it would suit a lot of different skin tones. 

This lipstick was part of my Getting Ready for Fall Post, You can see that post here.
It is on the pricier side of 'drugstore' with the price tag of £9 but the lipstick is worth it! It feels very luxurious on the lips, quite velvety and the packaging is just stunning. 

Overall the Soap and Glory lipstick in Pom Pom is a total hit in my books!

Have you tried any lip products from Soap and Glory?

Thanks for reading :)

Pink October

Hi Everyone!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month,  Everyone in Iceland stands together and wear pink for a whole day, every store does something pink and everyone wears the pink bow for the whole month. Every year a new Jewelry Designer designs a new bow and this year it is made by ORR, (you can see the whole collection here.) I think these are always so beautiful and its a good way to support amazing cause.

Everyone puts there hands together and it makes me very proud how much everyone is involved. Take a look at this video, it's only 1 minute and you can see what I drove past one morning and I loved it haha

I really love the color Pink and even though I own hardly anything pink (chlothing!)  I though I would share with you, how I wear pink :)


OPI - If you Moust you Moust
No7 - Daisy Darling
China Glaze - Pink Voltage


NYX - Peach
No7 - Cool Pink
MUA - Marshmallow


MAC - Speak Louder (Full post here)
FashionistA - Ultra Pink
Revlon - Sweet Tart (More here)


Real techniques brushes! So pretty with Pink Handles,
My favorite Blush brush and the stippling brush :)
Finally you can get these in Iceland and I totally recomend these two.

What is your favorite way to wear pink?
I can not make my mind up! I love every way 

Thanks for reading everyone

September Favorites 2013 (Super late)

Hi Everyone, 

I know this post is few days late (A week, gosh) but here are couple of the products I have used on daily bases in September :)

Bourjois healthy mix foundation is one of my all time favorite foundation! I just can't get enough. It has the most amazing finish, it lasts all day and has a medium coverage.
The brush I have been using to apply my foundation all month is 
Real Techniques expert face  brush, I go around and use different brushes all the time but I realised that I have been using this one almost every day. It blends my foundation in so well and it leaves my skin looking very natural. It works so well with my Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. 

 I used Maybelline color tattoo in the color On and On Bronze, every time I was rushing and I was rushing last month almost every morning. September was the first month of school and I love this eyeshadow for a quick pull together look. It is just really easy and pretty! The mascara I used every single day was the Dior Showoff Waterproof Mascara. There will be a post about this mascara very soon, this is kinda the last month I can use it since I have super sensitive eyes and I can only use mascaras for 3 months before my eyes starts to hurt.. BUT this mascara is great, I have got used to the large wand and it really coats the lashes and makes them look longer and gives volume, what more does a girl want?
The Jordana Fabu Liner is a recent purchase and almost every day this was my liner of choice, the first time I tried it I was like whaaa this is not that amazing but with time I have started to really like it and to make a quick line, this is it. It is a no-brainer and a great liner for a rushing morning. 

The main hair product I used in September was the Dove Nourishing oil care, leave in conditionerI can not get enough of Dove Hair Care products, They have started selling them in Iceland and I have seen two ranges (the blue and the pink) but my favorite is the Nourishing Oil Range, The Leave in Conditioner spray is amazing, it smells so nice and it does not weigh the hair down, I only spray it on the ends and try to avoid the root (I do that with every conditioner). It gives my hair a shine and makes it super tangly free. 

Anyway I should be studying for a test and not blog right now but if I don't post this now then it will never be posted.. haha :)

Thanks for reading
