The Sunday Post... Late August Favorites

Hi Everyone, it's getting a bit late and I can't stop watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I forgot that it had started again so I am already on episode 6 this evening. I just can't stop watching! Am I the only one that is obsessed with The Housewives??

I wanted to post my August Favorites the other day but I just kept on forgetting to write it. I decided to throw it in a little Sunday Post this evening :)

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - I have been on a little Nars craving lately. I picked up those foundation after falling in love with the concealer. There is a lot of hype around this foundation and I will admit that I love it. It is so natural but good coverage. I think the shade is perfect for me and it blend out so perfectly. 

Nars Radiance Creamy concealer - This was one of the first recent Nars purchase and I fell in love, it is very creamy but not so creamy that it creases under my eyes. It conceals almost everything and lasts all day. 

I will do a full review soon with a before and after picture so you can see how the foundation and concealer performs :)

MAC 217 Brush - I just love this brush, it is a must have. I use it to blend out harsh edges. For everyday I use one eyeshadow all over the lid and then blend it out with the 217. The brush is also amazing with cream shadows.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow stick in bluffing - This has been the easiest thing to use in the mornings when I am in a rush. I just love this shade, a beautiful metallic light taupe. It does crease on me if I don't use primer (everything does). I still love it and it makes a good shadow base. 

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Mono Eyeshadows - I have already done photos for a post only about these, just a little heads up, these are amazing. Such a great pigmentation and the shades are gorgeous. The post will be up next week :)

Bumble and Bumble Creme De Coco Shampoo and Conditioner - I am not a person that spends a lot of money on shampoo and conditioner, I did pick these up in a recent Space NK trip and I couldn't be happier. My hair feels so soft and healthy since I started using them. They smell amazing and they leave my hair super shiny.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water - Every brand has one of these out at the moment. I have tried few from the drugstore and the Garnier micellar water is the best one. It is a great makeup remover and does not leave a sticky residue on my skin. 

The Body Shop Camomile Waterproof eye makeup remover - I wear waterproof mascara on daily basis so a good waterproof makeup remover is so important. The reason why I like this one is that it feels soothing. It is a great eye makeup remover but the soothing factor is so good.

MAC Perfume - I have been enjoying this perfume all through August, I am crap at describing scents but I added a perfume collection onto my blog ideas and I might try to describe some of the ones I own. This one is great for every day and smells a bit like sophisticated and girly at the same time.

Well that was it for todays post, hope your week will be good and don't forget to follow the blog on bloglovin :D

Mani-Monday... Topshop - Profound

Hi Everyone

I found one of my favorite transitioning, summer to autumn, shade ever. It is a mix between a dusty purple, lavender, nude and beige. At least that is what I think. It is not too bright or too nude. I just loved how it looked with my skin tone

I am a big fan of the Topshop Nail polishes and I think for five pounds you can't go wrong. It is impossible for me to pick up one when I go into Topshop Oxford Street, there are just way too many shades available so the other day I picked up three new one. The one I am wearing today is called Profound.

Topshop - Profound
You can find it here :)

I think the formula of the Topshop nail polishes is opaque, fast drying and long lasting. I normally use top coat and I will probably do a post soon on my two favorite top coats :)

The brush is wide so it is easy to apply, I always paint my nails in two coats, even if the polish is very opaque, it is just a habit. Honestly I think nail polishes last longer if you do the first coat really sheer and then the second a little thicker. Anyway back to this nail polish, it was very easy to apply.

I just can't get enough of this shade, I haven't seen a shade quite like this, it doesn't look much but in person the shade is gorgeous.

If you have any great summer to autumn shades to recommend to me, please let me know :)

Thanks for reading

The Sunday Post... Ramble and Update

Hi Everyone :)

I want to get back to blogging and what can be a better way than a ramble little Sunday Post.

Well I am back in London and I have been here almost 4 months, the summer is over and I can't believe how quick it went by. My favorite season is here and I can't wait for September/October months. 

I am going to do a little catch up on Sundays here on my blog, I like looking back and seeing what I have been up to (full of myself much?)..  For the first week of September I have been trying to get more organized and healthier. I am trying to make little changes here and there. The week didn't start off well since I was stuck ill at home, I was off work until Thursday, so a slow start. I did manage to go out for a run three times (my little goal is to go at least two times a week) and until Friday I was eating fairly healthy through the days. But this weekend I have been on a little binge, for example, today (Sunday) I was working and I got to the shop and someone had smashed the window at work so guess how my day started... 
On my lunch I got myself a magazine (Company of course with Ferne Cotton on the front) and sat down in one of my favorite places Harris and Hoole. 

Well I can promise you that I really enjoyed it :) - That Cake!

One thing that I have been putting off all weekend is looking at my Uni stuff, basically my Uni started last Monday but since I am living in London attending Uni in Iceland while working a daytime job (complicated enough?), it has been difficult to sort everything out. I was registered in all courses that I took last year so I spent most days on the phone or sending emails last week. I officially got registered to the right courses last Friday so tomorrow I am already a week behind and I need to spend the next few days catching up (and buying books).

One thing that I haven't been forgetting is shopping... this is my latest Instagram picture (@margretscorner)

I am ashamed of myself... and a little proud (There is more than this) 
As you can see I have 'few' new products that I need to use and I will tell you all about it. I also have few great ideas that I want to post. (MAC lipstick collection and one brand FOTD) If you have any other ideas let me know in the comments :D

I am pretty sure I might be going on a spending ban since me and Ethan are going on a little trip soon (I am so excited!). I have never actually banned myself from spending money haha it is a bit silly but I have turned into a little shopaholic recently.

And here are few of my most recent makeup Instagram snaps :)

I can't wait to get into next week, even though Ethan is pretty sure I have a fever right now and honestly I have the worst eye infection ever (So gross) but tomorrow I start work at 3 pm, I am going to organize my Uni and post tomorrow blogpost up :D

Hope everyone is doing well :)

Thanks for reading this random ramble and don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin (btw I hit 100 followers the other day, more on that soon! <3 font="">
