Michael Kors - Purse Favorites

Yesterday I browsed through Michael Kors' American webshop, and I was simply stunned,
the designs are so sleek and chic, it immediately hit my nerve,
if you have the time, I HIGHLY recommend you check the store out, you will fall in love!

- And guess what, everything is surprisingly affordable!
Besides, given that prices are in US$, rates for us Europeans come in handy...if only international shipping was easier and more affordable...They do offer the option to ship outside the US, but I expect a ridiculously high charge plus potential customs are on the buyer!

That's the major drawback: MK names net-a-porter as its international online partner, but net-a-porter is very understocked and doesn't even offer nearly as much as the American webshop.

I could get incredibly furious on the general tendency to neglect the European market, if we're lucky enough, brands decide to enter years after the hype cools off in the United States (e.g. NYX, Glossy Box, and the list goes on...)

Well, all I can do is continue dreaming about these beauty's (I especially fancy the black and the orange tote), or who knows, maybe my holiday allowance will convince me to take a step closer towards making the investment...

I NEED to have this! (H&M Poncho)

This is nothing new in the H&M store,
but I am fancying it since such a long time, I'm however waiting until it gets into the Sale section,
it's a prime candidate to be sold for at least 50% of its price by january/february...

I can see this paired with a grey scarf at best, or a nude one,
simple blue skinny jeans, and golden accessories, can you picture it?

Beauty Post: my new favorite mascara

So, I am not very much into beauty-blogging, I simply miss the expertise in it..
Nonetheless, I had to write a post about this new product I picked up the other day;
it's definitely going to become a staple in my stash!

I'm talking about the 'Essence - I love extreme' mascara, which is a novel product in their assortment.
There are tons of reviews out in blogger-world, so I'm sure you'll find your way,

Here are some quick specifics:
- 2,99€ for 12ml
- Seriously huge brush, reminds me of Benefit's BadGirl
- Dries quickly
- Lasts all day
- Gives great volume 
- Absolute black

Great value for small price, can I ask for more?

Gossip Girl Fashion: Sequins (part 1)

For the upcoming holidays (YES, I AM so looking forward to Christmas already!), I am considering to spice up my wardrobe with sequins.
- Yes, they have been there for quite some time,
- Yes, they can easily seem tacky

but I thought why not demonstrate how to do it right through 'ours truly' - Gossip Girl.
Basically, I wanted to get some inspiration from those that do it right,

This is my favorite! And it's easy to style it yourself, all I need to find now is that sequin jumper!
It's just too gorgeous...

How do you like Gossip Girl Fashion?
would you like to see more?

Current Favorite: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector

I'm currently in love with this product: the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector.
BB creams are hyped in the Asian community so long already, so it's really not a novel product for me. However I never ordered any of them, because I couldn't be bothered by paypal and the very lengthy process of ordering things on ebay (I'm just not a fan of waiting 1-2weeks for an order).
So I was happy to give the Garnier-take on BB a shot and I'm in love!

It's very light-weight when on, yet giving enough coverage to hide those little red spots and blemishes; and a little bit of this goes a long way!

I can only recommend it although it's not a favorite product of many beauty bloggers,
Well, I guess you just have to try it out yourself!

50% off of selected H&M items

massive dm haul

I was lucky enough to visit my family in Germany a couple of days ago;
and of course I could not resist to visit my FAVORITE drug store...
this is the result of my shopping, quite a bit, isn't it? 

 Here's the damage done...

 These Christmas sets are just too handy, and so affordable! 
With 2,95€ I simply could not refuse..

These smell simply divine - If you have the chance to pick these up, please do,
and hurry - It's limited edition!

My favorite powder, it's just so affordable and does the job - brilliant!
