Redid my nails yesterday and I love the design and colour combination. I was originally going to do the houndstooth design in white but I'm so glad I decided to try purple lol. I love it <3
For the base colour, I used Priti Polishes 'St. Catherine's Lace' one of my favourite colours <3 it's my only Priti Polish at the moment but I would love to own more of their polishes. They're great and organic.

I purchased the Naruko Lavender Peeling Gel & Brightening Serum, Niaouli & Tea Tree Serum and Night Jelly. The person from BeautyEshop also gave me a sponge as a free gift =p yay. I've never really used a sponge for makeup or anything so not sure what I'm going to do with it for now. I have combination/oily skin and I also have some post acne scarring from pimples -.- so I'm hoping the Lavender line can help with that.
These are the main ingredients for the Lavender Peeling Gel. lovely <3 tons of natural ingredients and anti-oxidants for the skin.
I love their packaging as well. Very eco friendly as you can unfold the boxes and there are different patterns in each one. I made the green box from the Night Jelly in the first photo =p ^
The Niaouli & Tea Tree Serum. I didn't take a picture of the Lavender Brightening Serum, similar packaging.
and finally the Lavender Peeling Gel. Can't wait to try this one <3

I'll be posting about Naruko's skincare tomorrow, so excited! =p I did a painting late last year... this is just a picture from the process, but the painting is almost done... just too lazy to finish it and need the time and patience -.-
and this is one of my latest nail designs ^^ snow leopard inspired. Have been snowing here in Canada the past week and this is what I came up with lol =p
and this is a picture I took in January after coming back from the Netherlands. They have Primark there so I found this beautiful clutch for only 9euros o.o and they have handbag sized magazines... not fair lol
This is just an update post =p since I haven't been posting for a long time ><
oh and hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day <3

I am loving the new H&M Conscious Collection which will be in stores in April <3 the skirt from the far right is from Zipia.net. Love the style and colour =] I don't think I would wear it often though so I'm not sure whether I should get it or not... it's $26
I also recently purchased my first leather handbag from Asos.com ^^ I love the colour and the size! I'm quite petite so the size is quite lovely. Not too big or too small... fits my body frame. The tassels are really cute as well =p I got the bag for around $60 while it was on sale and free shipping! <3

omg I haven't posted in forever >< anyway I have been on Tumblr lately and just abandoned this blog >> I ran out of my Mario Badescue Whitening Mask and wanted to try peeling gels. This gel is supposed to help remove the dead skin cells on your face and brighten up the complexion as well.
The moment I started rubbing this onto my face, clumps of white stuff started forming and wanting to fall off... assuming they are the dead skin cells themselves. Well I had quite a lot lol =p I did notice my face being a bit brighter and was a bit smoother but I'll have to use this several more times to see if I like it... I think it's okay for now =p
I really liked my Mario Badescue Whitening Mask... it made my skin feel moisturized and also made my skin appear very bright and pretty =p but I like to try new products so if nothing else works as good, then I'll have to purchase it again some time =]
