New Year’s Eve Make up Menu & 2015 Recap


Hi Loves, 

the year is almost over and that means – New Year’s Eve. It’s the perfect opportunity to dress up and go out with your make up. In this post I’m sharing with you the make up I’ll be wearing this year. 

For the base I chose to go light with a CC cream from Sephora that has great coverage for a CC cream and has some radiance for that extra glowyness. Since it’s going to be a long night I chose a camouflage for concealing. This one is from Catrice and it’s definitely my favorite concealing product because it doesn’t look cakey and covers even the dark bags under my eyes ๐Ÿ™‚ For blush I chose this multicolored one – from Catrice as well – which is a good match for my complexion. Since I don’t want to look shiny on the pictures that will definitely be taken during the night I’m using the Maybelline “Matte maker” powder.

For contouring I recently discovered this stick from NYX with contour and a highlighter pen. So far I really like it and it’s also really handy. For the eyes I chose a bronze look with a creamy champagne color all over the lid and the Mac “Bronze” eyeshadow for the crease. Also I have this copper eye pen which I’m going to use as an eyeliner.


The Elizabeth & James scents have been my absolute favorite during the year so they also won’t be missing on the last night of the year. For nails I’m going with this deep read color from Butter London, maybe I’ll put some glitter nail polish on top – who knows? ๐Ÿ˜‰

2015 RECAP: This year has been amazing and I’m really sad it’s over. But I’m left with so many good memories! First of all I finished my bachelor’s degree, then I was traveling to Florida & backpacking through Southeast Asia, in September I went to Copenhagen with friends, went sailing in Greece and I started my master’s degree, I moved & so many more things but most important – starting this blog with the wonderful Juliana ๐Ÿ™‚ Can you remember our first post here? I feel like we already have improved so much and it feels like we just started yesterday ๐Ÿ˜€ But we are really proud about how the blog turned out and that we already had some cooperations this year. Hopefully more to come in 2016!
Hope you’re having a wonderful and safe New Year’s Eve!
Lots of Love and see you next year, 
Melly

The Coat Edit

Hi Loves,

christmas is right around the corner and the days are finally starting to get a little bit colder. Though we’re missing out on snow this christmas it doesn’t stop us from spending time outside at the christmas markets or on long walks. Of course you gotta stay warm and this means coat season. Juli already showed you her favorite coat here and since we both have the same coat I thought I’ll show you how I style this gorgeous piece of clothing. 

The other black coat you see on the pictures below is from Zara and is available here. To go with the black Zara coat I chose to wear a grey dress from Forever 21 with an a-line dress and some black boots as well as a white hat and a white scarf. In the hectic pre-christmas time you want something that’s comfy and and chic and that’s what this Outfit is about.

For the Michael Kors one I chose to dress up a bit like I would on a christmas party or a bit mire fancy dinner. The white oversized shirt is vintage and I love it for it’s universality.  This time I paired it with a black skirt, a belt with golden hardware and black heels which you can obviously switch out during the day ๐Ÿ˜‰

What is your favorite piece to wear this time of the year?

Merry Christmas guys ๐Ÿ™‚

Lots of Love,

Melly

[#10] Things …. I like to decorate for Christmas

Hey loves,

I’m so sorry we don’t post that much at the moment but school really keeps us busy. Melly had some important presentations and I had to deal with five Master classes but after this week everything will get better. It is final week and I am so happy that this semester is finally over, it was very exhausting. Next semester, I’m gonna start a great internship and graduation is also not far away anymore ๐Ÿ™‚
For Christmas, I am flying home to Germany to visit my family and friends and I really can’t wait. Every family has their own traditions and we always gather around, sing songs and eat Polish pirogies. For the ones of you who don’t know what that is, they look a little like Ravioli and are stuffed with a variety of fillings. My favorites are pirogies with sauerkraut or mashed potatoes. My grandmother used to make these and a couple years ago, she showed my mom and me how to make these. I don’t need any roast or steak, just these and I’m happy. I know, that sounds crazy but they just taste so delicious.

What kind of traditions do you have?

Decoration for Christmas

But I also wanted to decorate my apartment here in the United States a little Christmas-like. So we chose some brown, grey, and lavender colored christmas balls with a star for the top to lighten up the tree. In the evening, I just like lying on the couch and looking at all the nice lights. Furthermore, I decorated a pretty light chain and hung it over the full length lean mirror.
I also love the three small vintage tea light holders that I mostly keep on my dining table to create a nice cosy atmosphere.

I hope you like my decoration and I wish you all a wonderful upcoming fourth advent weekend.

Love,
Juli

For the Tech Lovers

Good Headphones are always a great gift, especially if the person your buying for is still stuck with headphones that come originally with the phone. This ones are also great if someone is into sports because of the extra strap they wont come off during workouts.
Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats 2 In-Ear Ohrhรถrer
Going along with the sound theme here – those speakers have an insane quality! I’m a huge fan of Bose speakers and these ones would make a great gift. Personally, I have one in the kitchen and in my living room and I also think it’s worth to spend a little bit more money on good speakers.

Another great tech gift is a smart watch or in this case a fitness watch. This one in addition to tracking your fitness activities also track your sleep circles and helps you improve your precious good nights sleep. Shows the person you give the watch that you care – which makes it a great gift.

A good shaver is a classic gift but this gift set from The Body Shop offers very good value for money and looks amazing!

A scarf is also great especially if know someone – as I do loads – who have a problem spending money on clothes a good quality scarf is a good idea. Why is it that men have a problem with going shopping? Totally don’t get that ๐Ÿ˜‰

This candle holder is so classy and chic – I don’t think I have commit that I like candles ๐Ÿ˜‰

Another great gift is nice cushion for someone who maybe just moved. This one looks soooo nice and that’s what I would want to see in a men’s appartement ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide – for HER

Hi Loves,

christmas is right around the corner and I have the feeling that the remaining days will pass so quickly that I will end up at the 23rd of December and still have no presents.

The last few weeks have been crazy busy, since both of us had to hand in essays at university and I had presentation last week which I was so nervous about! When it was my turn to go up and hold my presentation I was about to die. Once I got into it it went a little better and I’m quite pleased that I got great feedback. In the end I was so glad that I’ve managed just fine and that all the worries before were totally exaggerated. There is something so terrifying about giving speeches or presentations. For me it’s standing in front of people and knowing you’re not only judged by your work but also for your personality. Are you also frightened if you have to give a speech or presentation? I’m really curious how you feel about those situations.

But back into business ๐Ÿ˜€ – I made a little collection from cheap to a little bit more expensive pieces for your sister, friend, mum or dear colleague. The things range from beauty, lifestyle and little feel-good things so I hope that you will find something for everyone.

For Interior Lovers

I especially love these mugs, imagine them with a hot chocolate in them – that’s just perfection on cold winter evenings ๐Ÿ™‚

For the sophisticated interior lover I would recommend getting this soap dispenser, or any good looking soap dispenser.
extra tip: If you wanna make it a bit more special you can already put in your favorite soap product or body lotion or shower gel.
This candle holder I loooooooove love love. It looks so pretty and elegant. It’s originally from HAY but you can order it from COS. Also you can kinda see that I’m still copper OBSESSED ๐Ÿ˜€
Scented candles are always a great idea because who doesn’t love candles? This one is also from H&M Home, but you can obviously get them in every price range from cheap ones, to Yankee Candles to Diptyque ones, which are quite expensive.
This candle holder is a little bit cheaper and also available in silver. It’s from H&M Home. The shape makes it special and it would look great with white candles in it. Also H&M offers free shipping up until the 20th of December!

For the Beauty Lovers

I love Dr. Bronners Products – everything from their range would be a great present. If you’re not familiar with them it’s an organic brand that specializes in soaps. When I went traveling in Asia this summer I used the Lavender soap because a little product goes a long way. You can also use it wo wash your clothes or have a bath. This is a soap from their product range, also available with different kind of scents.
This makeup bag I found on H&M and I think it would be a nice idea to put in some make up products or brushes as well.

Gift sets are an classic but I think they’re great. You often get more product for less money and you can get them for everyone and they are also a great last minute gift ๐Ÿ˜‰ On amazon you also get a free gift set of great products if buy beauty products for more than 50โ‚ฌ. The set is really great and has a lot of products in it.

For the Tech Lovers

This Instant Camera is a great gift for everyone I would guess. It’s also available in different colors. Don’t forget to get some picture paper as well ๐Ÿ™‚
This portable printer is also a great alternative to an instant camera since you can print the pictures from your phone directly and also have the great instant camera look. 

For the Cooking Lovers

A great gift also is a cook book because the recipient can actually use it. This one is great because it has a lot of healthy but also easy and delicious recipes in it.
This tool is perfect for someone who is just getting into healthy eating. You can basically create spaghetti from vegetables like zucchini or carrots.

Do you already have most of your christmas presents?
Hope you’re having a great time and enjoy the pre-christmas spirit!

Love, 

Melly
