OPI's real expensive nail polish!

Hi dolls,

OPI announced that they would be doing a James Bond collection in honour of James Bond 50th anniversary. And now it was revealed that one of the polishes is really special. It contains 18k gold leaf and is actually packaged in a nice shiny gold bottle. 

The nail polish is kinda like a top coat like the shatter polishes but gives a much nicer effect. I have seen photo of it and it is so pretty. Now you might wonder what the nail polish would be called? It is called ''The Man With The Golden Gun'' a very fitting name for the polish. 

The price however is a bit pricey. I think this polish will be retailing for around 30 US dollars and around 25 euros. Yes I know very pricey, but then again 18k gold is not cheap either so.

Would you buy it?

Music Monday: Cheryl - Under The Sun

Hi dolls,

How are you all today? It is a new week which means a new music of movie recommendation from me. And as you can see from the title it is a music Monday!

I picked Cheryl's latest single which comes out sometime in September but her music video got released the other day. I do have to say it is pretty catchy and a bit different from her other singles that she has released in the past. 

Also I love Cheryl for her fashion style and her makeup which a tutorial for her makeup look in this video will be up soon when I feel slightly better.

In this video it has a retro theme, which is pretty nice. I love how they thought of all the details with the cars and stuff.

Enjoy the vid!

Collective Haul July

Hi dolls,

I actually filmed this last week but because of all the other videos I thought I would upload it today also because I have not been feeling too well today and therefore even though I was planning to film a tutorial. I unfortunately won't be able to. Because no one wants to see me like a mess, not a pretty look.

Anyhow it is a collective haul from stuff that I bought over the past 2 weeks or so.

You can cancel your subscription any time you want. to get your own Truly Yours (Dutch people only unfortunately)

The OPI Just Spotted CRAZE!

Hi dolls,

I was reading the other day about a nail polish... And you might wonder why I would be just reading an entire article about 1 nail polish... This OPI polish has marked something really crazy! You might know which one I am talking about. It is the Just Spotted from the Spiderman collection from OPI. This nail polish was sold through a limited amount of stores only and only in a few countries. But now it has taken over Ebay, this nail polish retails for over 5 times it's normal retail value!!! I know crazy right?! 

I mean I have a love for nailpolish but would you go as far as 50 dollars for just 1 nail polish? I put down an image of the nail polish. It is really pretty and it is pretty unusual. But considering how popular it is, all we have to do is wait for more of these special nailpolishes to come out. I know other brands will follow. 

So you wonder what this nail polish does? Well the nail polish itself has like a dual/triple tone color in it but then it also gives a spotted effect within the nail polish after you have applied it. Pretty cool... If I ever find this nail polish in Sephora, you bet there will be swatches of this.

Primark Haul!!

Hi dolls,

I know this is like my 3rd post today! But I am really overflowing you guys with like my videos. Hope you guys don't mind lol.

Anyways, when I went for my Cosmopolitan lunch (the vlog of it can be found here) I decided to go pay a visit to Primark. One of my favorite stores when I lived in the UK because it is cheap and sometimes you find great stuff. But the only downside is that everyone looks the same! Because Primark is everywhere. In Holland however there are only 3 Primarks, and they are all in the west of the country and I live in east. So the chance of me going to Primark just for shopping is really small. So when I was near one (same city) I had to go pay a visit!

I will stop talking and just let you get to the video. Primark Haul Video

Music Monday: Katy Perry - California Gurls

Hi dolls,

Because today is actually a summer day in Holland, I choose a golden oldie Katy Perry - California Gurls. I love that song, I listen to it every summer, and it does not get old at least not to me anyways.

The video is just so fun, and happy and summery and everything! lol

So yeah today is actually a summer day in Holland, which I almost gave up hope that we would get a summer. But good news, this week is going to be a lovely summery week according to the weather forecast. So I am hopeful that we will get a glimpse of summer.

Anyways on to the video;

Maybelline Color Tattoo Review

Hi dolls,

I thought I would actually make a blog post about this instead of a video review like I have been doing the past week. So finally a content post! lol, I have been neglecting my blog a little bit. Just because I have my dad's camera to play with for my YouTube videos and it films in HD which I have been obsessed with. 

Anyways, I bought these a couple of weeks ago. They were on offer for 2 for 15 euros (normally they are 9.95 or 9.99 a piece) so I thought I would pick two of them up. As everyone has been raving about them so much, I wanted to find out what the hype was all about. I am talking about the Maybelline 24 hour Color Tattoos.

The color tattoos color range in Holland is pretty limited, I have found 4 different colors so far (correction I actually saw 6 today) and I have of 2 of them. 

I bought 35 On and on Bronze;

and 05 Eternal Gold;

The other 2 colors are a blue/teal and a white color. The blue/teal color was pretty but I didn't think I would get a lot of use out of it. And the white, I have my NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk so didn't think it was necessary to own the white.

I picked out the two more neutral colors as you can say. You can wear them on their own or as an eyeshadow base to make your eyeshadow stand out even more. I use them as a base, because I don't really like cream eyeshadows and usually cream eyeshadows don't like me because it just gets everywhere during the day and it starts to crease, all in all not a good look for me. These two are great as an eyeshadow base, it really does make a difference when I apply eyeshadow over it. 

These are the swatches of both of the color tattoos;
*With Flash*

*Without Flash*

They are nicely pigmented and very creamy. And also a lot of shimmer, if you are not the shimmer type of person then you might not like this very much. 

I love the packaging, you can store it upside down and see the colors. ( I have seen a lot beauty gurus store them that way) Or you can store them with the lid upwards the label with the color is on the lid, so you can tell right away which is which. The glass container is quite heavy, so no cheap packaging. When I bought it, it was entirely sealed which I like when buying makeup. So I know no one else has touched it (bit of germ-a-fobe). 

The downside of the Maybelline Color Tattoos, are that I do not know if they last a full 24 hours because I have not tried. And I don't wear makeup in my sleep. I would not recommend having makeup on your face for 24 hours anyways. 

Also they kind of smudge, when they are on their own. Because I did my swatches and waited for about half an hour and then tried to smudge it by going over it with my finger and basically the glitter went all over my hand. So kind of need to be carreful with that, but I don't think any of us would go over our eyelids after we've done our makeup anyways. 
I took a picture of it and you can tell that the glitter is everywhere, especially from the 05 Eternal Gold, not so much from the 35 On- and on Bronze shadow.

So how do I apply this shadow? I use my finger to apply this on my lid and just blend it out basically and then apply my usual eyeshadow. If you want to use a brush, I would recommend one of those flat eyeshadow brushes (kind of like a concealer brush) because then you can brush it on, and be precise with it. Because it is a bit of pain to get it off. I used facewipes to wipe off the swatches and there is still glitter and shimmer on my hand.

I will definitely be doing a tutorial featuring the Maybelline Color Tattoo, so watch out for that. Also let me know if you have any experience with this product? Or what other product would you like me to review? What kind of tutorial would you like to see?

Movie Monday

Hi dolls,

Today not a music monday but a movie monday. And I don't have a new movie for you but a movie I have loved for years now. And I usually pull this movie out for the summer.

And it is the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, I just love this movie. I have the double dvd box with the first and the second movie but the first is my favorite. It just captures the essence of friendship, even though all the girls are all so different they compliment each other in the movie. This movie has some amazing actresses, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrera, Amber Tamblyn and Blake Lively play the title characters. The second movie I was not in total love with because it got adapted too much to the ''Hollywood'' scene, which kinda ruined the movie and the story line. 

Anyways check out the trailer;

Let me know what your favorite movie is that you usually watch every summer. Or just your favorite movie at the moment.

Getting Creative Sample Box Edition

Hi dolls,

Yesterday I was looking at my pile of empty boxes from my Truly Yours subscription and thought I could make my own little organization storage set with these empty boxes. And this is the result of it.

Last photo I took with the flash on.

I stored a couple of things in it, like my back up mascaras, some makeup sponges, fake lashes. I could only store light weight things in it otherwise the drawers would not pull in and out as easy. 

Let me know what you do with your empty boxes or share your own creative ideas.

Music Monday: Katie Sky - Paradise

Hi dolls,

I cannot believe another week has passed already and it is time for my monday segment. This week again I have chosen for Music Monday, I have been listening to a lot of music lately and not been watching that many movies.

I discovered Katie Sky's music through some of the YouTubers that I watch and they featured her music in their videos. And I just loved it! So catchy and perfect for a nice summer day. 

I especially love her song Paradise, I think it is the perfect summer tune. I think this will be my summer soundtrack of 2012 to be honest. 

Katie Sky is a british singer/songwriter and her voice is absolutely amazing! Anyways check out her website where you can listen to her EP and also purchase it. 

Go check out the song ''Paradise'' in this video down below, and I hope you like it as much as I do!

Let me know what your Summer 2012 soundtrack will be?

Sunday Night Pamper Night

Hi dolls,

So on Sundays I love to relax and pamper myself a little bit with a nice face mask/foot bath or a lil manicure. I thought it would be nice to let you know what I do for my sunday foot bath.

I try to do this foot bath on a weekly base but sometimes I am too lazy or just completely forget because I have 10 million things on my mind. A foot bath is a great way to let your feet relax, after all your feet take the most beating from your entire body. It takes your entire body weight, it keeps your balance and in the winter they are closed off in shoes and socks all day every day. 

Step 1. I usually fill a small tub with hot water from the tap. You can also boil hot water and mix it with cold water from the tap. Just be careful you don't burn yourself! Make sure the water is hot not just warm because the water cools off really fast.
Step 2. I like to add some bath salt in the water. I don't have a bath tub and this way my bath salt will have a use for something. It makes my feet soft and it smells nice! (If you don't have bath salt, you can put in some scent oil of your choice to make it smell good.) Or if you have a bar of soap, cut off a small piece and put it in the water. The water will smell good and because you are letting your feet soak it will make your feet soft.
Extra step. You can also use a foot scrub after the soak, to make your feet even softer and rinse that off.
Step 3. Let your feet soak for about 10-15 min, depending how long the water stays hot or how long you feel like it. Don't forget to put a towel in your reach because you don't want to get up and walk around the house with wet feet looking for a towel!
Step 4. After those 10-15 min. I take my feet out dry your feet with the towel and leave them to air dry for a couple of more minutes until you think they are ready for a good foot file to get rid of the dead skin that accumulates on your feet. (No need to do this every just when you think it is necessary)
Step 5. Either after the soak or after the foot file, make sure you moisturize your feet with a good thick moisturizer. I either use a body butter or moisturizer for dry skin, just be careful you don't start walking around straight after applying you could slip and hurt yourself. So let your feet take in the moisturizer. 

Of course you can give yourself a pedicure after a nice foot bath or relax some more put your feet up and enjoy a movie or something on TV or just listening to some music or reading a book/magazine.

Hope you liked this post. Let me know what you guys do on your sunday nights

Boohoo, I fell and hurt myself.... :'-(

Hi dolls,

I cannot believe this but I basically fell flat on my knees and hands and now they hurt so much! I cannot believe this happened. I wanted to do a video to show you what I bought today, as I went shopping a little bit and the other day as well. But I can barely type with this and also there is no way I can do swatches. My head just felt so light and I couldn't concentrate, I think I have low blood sugar or something like that. Because my mom gave me a piece of candy and I felt better right away. Lets just hope my hands feel better tomorrow and maybe I can record a video then. 

I will not go on about the pain I am in. But I went to Sephora today and bought a couple of things in their sale. OMG I love Sephora!!! I just wish they had a store near me, this store is an hour drive away... (That is really far in Holland because if you go from North to South in Holland it will be a 3 hour drive. 

Anyhow I won't go on for much longer, if you have not entered my giveaway. Go do it because it will end on the 10th of July Sakura Soap Giveaway

Love you dollies! xoxox Ellen

Awkward Season 2

Hi dolls,

as some of you might know the TV show Awkward is my latest obsession and last week was the premiere of season 2. I am so excited, I just wish the episode would last an hour instead of just half an hour (this is with all the commercials). 

Anyways I want to know if you guys watch and if you do watch are you Team Matty or Team Jake?

I don't know, I mean Jake has been nice and open about everything since the beginning and Matty is just perfect for Jenna but the only thing is that he has commitment issues, and it seems like he is embarrassed for some reason. But we will see what happens this season, I am so excited!

I would pick Matty just for the abs! lol (picture taken from the web)

Sleek Oh So Special Palette (swatches + review)

Hi dolls,

as you might have seen in my collective haul video I mentioned this product if you have not seen my haul video go to my channel and whilst you are there. Don't forget to subscribe if you have not subscribed already.

Anyways on to the product, it is the Sleek Oh So Special eyeshadow palette. It contains 12 eyeshadows and the colors are absolutely gorgeous! 

I love the packaging it just looks so sleek! lol, It is nice and compact and it has a good size mirror in it. the size of the palette itself. It comes with a double ended sponge tip applicator, which I don't use because I prefer using my brushes, but I think it would be great for traveling. 

Ok so the colors are from top row, left to right; Bow, Organza, Ribbon, Gift Basket, Glitz and Celebrate.
Bottom row from left to right; Pamper, Gateau, The Mail, Boxed, Wrapped Up and Noir.

I do have to say when I first received this palette I was disappointed about the size, I expected it to be bigger but that might just be because of the pictures that were posted online. The palette is about the size of my hand. The shadows weigh 1.1 gram each or 0.03 ounces. 

Now the swatches,

From left to right; Bow, Organza, Ribbon, Gift Basket, Glitz and Celebrate.
Bow: this is a neutral beige color, which does not show up at all! I put like 5 layers on my skin in the hope it would show up a little bit but it doesn't at all. So this color is no use for me. It is very light and basically my skin tone color.
Organza: This is an absolute gorgeous rose color with gold shimmer in it. It looks so nice when I swatched it, in some lights it looks a bit dark rose and then when you turn a little bit the gold shines through. I just love this color.
Ribbon: This looks like such a pretty color in the palette, but I find it very powdery and pink toned coral color. I don't like how powdery it is maybe I should use it wet instead of dry. I don't think I will use it as an eyeshadow because it looks a bit odd on me but I think it will look pretty as a light blush.
Gift Basket: A very nice gold toned brown, I think this can work great for a bronze look or even for fall.
Glitz: Nice shimmery blue color, which I probably won't use for the summer because it is a bit too dark for my liking for the summer. But definitely I will use it in the fall/winter time. 
Celebrate: You can't tell from the photos I put up but it is a nice shimmery dark purple with a slight pink tone in it. I think this will make gorgeous smokey eyes without the classic black smokey look.

Now for the bottom row swatches from left to right; Pamper, Gateau, The Mail, Boxed, Wrapped Up and Noir.
Pamper: This eyeshadow has the same powdery feel like the Ribbon color so I am not crazy about the consistency. But it is a nice soft peachy pink color, which once again does not look nice on my eyes. So I have not decided if I will be able to use this color for anything. Maybe for blush again?
Gateau: I love this eyeshadow color. It is a nice gold with slight purple mixed in it. Which makes it more gold tone but occasionally the purple shines through. I just love this color.
The Mail: I like to call this color a light mud color, it really reminds me of muddy color. It is a matt color but this is a bit close to tan colors so on some skin tones it won't show up like the Bow color.
Boxed: This is a nice matt dark mud color, so it is brown. I think this can work great for like filling in brows or as a crease color. 
Wrapped Up: This is a nice matt mauve color which I think will work great for the crease combining it with Gift Basket.
Noir: This is your average black matt eyeshadow, which I think will be great for blending or lining your lower lash line. Because if it is too dark you can just blend it away. 

So overall the eyeshadows are great, except for a few that I find very powdery. The consistency is nice and soft, they are mineral shadows. I will be using the lighter for summer and the somewhat darker colors for fall.

If you have this palette, let me know what you think. What do you think I should buy next from Sleek? And if you would like any tutorials using this palette let me know in the comments. I would love to hear some feed back. 

If you like to check out the oh so special palette on the Sleek website check here.

FTC. I bought this palette with my own money and opinions are my own.

E.L.F. (Eyes Lips Face) Discount Code NL

Hi dolls,

I have found a discount code for all you Dutch ELF fans out there. Even though I subscribed to their newsletter I never get any! I have subscribed with 2 different emails and I don't get any of them. Really annoying!

Anyways for the discount code ''SOLDESYEUX'' and you should get 20% off your eye make up. And they have a small sale going on their website as well so check that out. I unfortunately did not find anything that I really want especially because shipping is € 6,95!!! Too damn expensive! The products are already more expensive than the US and more limited and we never get any of the nice offers but shipping costs way too much! It just puts me off from ordering anything. Anyways I hope you guys have more luck finding something you like.

Soley Graedir Review

Hi dolls, 

I am back with review for all of you. I have won this product in a giveaway by Truly Yours and I thought it would be fun to do a review on it as it is a relatively unknown brand and product.

I am talking about the Sóley GRÆÐIR healing cream, I was excited to try this out because I have a small problem with eczema on my skin so I hoped this would work. And to find out if it did check out my Soley Graedir Review video.

Also don't forget to enter my Sakura Soap Giveaway if you have not entered already.

Music Monday

Hi dolls,

It is Monday the start of a new week. And I am going to be starting this week with Music Monday, you probably have been listening to this as much as I do. I have been listening to this all of last week, and it is so catchy and it just sticks in your head and I love the lyrics.

I am talking about the lovely Katy Perry with her single ''Wide Awake''. To be honest I am actually been wanting to check out her movie as well, I normally kind of hate those celebrities documentaries about their tours and stuff especially with those big releases just because it is all so staged and they want to make some extra money. But I kinda want to see the Katy Perry one because in the promos it is shown her true self without all the make-up etc. Also she lets you in on the news of her divorce, I know a lot of celebrities would have stayed as far away from that footage as possible. Anyways I will stop rambling and let you enjoy the video which currently has 21 million views already. 

I love her end make-up look should I do a tutorial on that? I don't want to do a tutorial on her darker look because so many have done that already.

Don't forget to check out my giveaway! Sakura Soap Giveaway

Euro 2012 is officially over

Hi dolls,

This might not interest you but Euro 2012 is officially over the last game was played tonight between Italy and Spain and Spain won 4-0 which was not expected. But Italy really did not have any luck tonight. 

This also means for me that I have my evenings back so I can blog and vlog even more if that is even possible. Actually I think I can spend more time vlogging and reviewing products for all you. I have a bunch of products that I showed you guys in my latest collective haul video so I can do reviews on those things. So expect a bunch of blog posts filled with photos of swatches etc and me ranting on about a product lol. Of course all those soaps and other goodies I got from Sakura that will probably divided into multiple posts. 

Nighty night don't let the bed bugs bite! xoxox E.
