Random Favorites - Lashes, Clothes and Cocktails!

I am not one of the ‘monthly favorites’ people. Although I like to try new things and enjoy changing things up I mostly just stick to what I know and like. I can be very sentimental and loyal to certain things.

That said I decided I will post my random favorite things from time to time. These can be things I just discovered or loved for years. I hope you’ll find it an interesting read and maybe you’ll fall in love with something new ;)

1) Using up foundations I am not too keen on by mixing them with other foundations – Since my beauty obsession started I managed to accumulate quite a few bottles of different foundations and I only like two or three out of them all. I am determined to use them all up so to make the task easier I decided to mix foundation I don’t like with the one I like. It actually works a treat! Last week I mixed
Mac Studio Sculpt NW20 which is too thick, too powdery feeling and this shade is too light (dislike) with Clarins Hydra-care Tinted Moisturizer Blond which is light and moisturizing in texture (like). This combination created perfect coverage and color for me, plus it makes my skin look really fresh and healthy. I apply it with maestro 140 brush in size 18 – it’s a dense buffing brush designed for powder products but I found it works awesome with liquid foundations and it does not shed hair.

2) Natural looking fake eyelashes
– no matter what makeup I’ve got on, it all looks so much better with fake lashes. I don’t think I have to explain the power of thick, long, black fluttering lashes, do I?! If you choose natural looking pair I can assure you that people will wonder why your eyes look so gorgeous but it won’t cross their mind that it could be fakesies.
I order Ardell lashes from this seller on ebay. I shopped there on sereval occasions and service was always top notch so I highly recommend it. Oh! And off course price is unbeatable.

3) Pastels – I know this isn’t really a surprise since the spring is just around the corner but nudes and minks are my thing so I am expanding that love a bit further into lilacs and mints. I don’t like baby blue and pastel yellow does not suit me so I am excluding these options.
I have a shopping trip planned with my friend so these items are on the lust list. I hope I will manage to snatch some nice Spring essentials
Bag - River Island
Skirt - River Island
Clutch - I think it’s H&M but I found this image on google
Scarf – Temporary Secretary
Trousers – River Island
Blazer – Top Shop

4) Lana Del Rey ‘Born to Die’ and Kimbra ‘Vows’ albums – Not much to say but amazing voices and great music. I’ve been listening to them two for about 3 weeks nonstop.

5) Mojito cocktail – So yummy and refreshing! As it turned out it’s very easy to make at home. I had a go on Saturday and first one didn’t really come out right but I have changed the proportions a bit in the next ones and they tasted a lot better. I have taken the recipe from here but I suggest to go easy on the rum as it is strong tasting :D

So that is it my lovelies. Hope you enjoyed my randomness and rambleness :D
