Pupa Sequin Makeup clutch

"Go shawty, it's yo birthday! 
We gon party like it's yo birthday"

Yea, so yesterday was my birthday and I had a nice time at home with the family, dinner was soooo yummy I thought I could eat it all night non-stop... Smart much?! Well after a few bites, I realized I couldn't...But all the same, dinner was fantastic. And yea, I had 3 different cakes, which was also nice. I had a taste of all of them and they were all full of some sweet goodness or the other. 
     
Ok, enough about all the yummy food I had for my birthday, moving on to the more interesting aspect - PRESENTS!!!!
     
I love the way everyone loves me, and I love them all right back. This birthday was all about pampering me, myself and I.

I got a gift card for a day at Jurmala Spa. Can't wait to go! 

And the lovely ladies at the office made my day today by giving me this amazing Pupa makeup kit.

It’s so elegant and covered in sequin. Plus, it has so many amazing colors:
-11 different shades of lipstick
-6 shades of eye shadow

Also included in the kit is:
- Blush
- Eye pencil

I think this is one item every lady should have. Very comfortable to take along with you where you need if you are going for a sleepover or just staying at you man's place. *wink*
     
Hitting the club next weekend, and I will definitely be doing my makeup with this kit. Woohoo!

DIY blue cross pattern headband

Yesterday was fun, finally got the supplies I needed and some time on my hands. Woohoo!!! Searched my magic drawer and found some ribbons which i bought a while ago. I gathered the supplies I needed and decided to make my first headband.
       
You can top off a more or less simple outfit with this headband and give your look something for people to wow about.

This headband is handmade and therefore very unique.

First I covered the heandband in beautiful ribbon and made this pretty cross pattern.
       
Then I decided to put some sort of ornament on it. After going back and forth about a hundred times between a bow and a flower, I decided to stick with the flower this time. Then I topped it off with a bead.

After I made this headband, I decided to give it to a friend. She was a little bit ill for a couple of days (awww. Poor poockie. *sad*) and came to work finally today to see this little dime piece on her table. She was very very excited and cannot wait for the winter to be over so she can finally put it on and dazzle everyone.

Let me know what you think about this headband.

Winter necessities

Winter in Latvia was somewhat warm in comparison to the last 2 years. It was weird not having snow for Christmas and New Year, and so we all thought that we were going to have a snowless, warm winter… But in the middle of January, we got a huge surprise…. SNOW!!!!! Lots of it. It was still relatively warm; say some -15°C  so I wasn’t that worried. But starting from about 30th January or thereabout, it became VEEEERRRRYYY cold; the temperature dropped to -30°C. In these days I became even better friends with certain beauty products.

It’s at this moment I realized how much I need these products at this time of the year. These products include:

Winter necessities
  • Hand and Body lotion – When the weather is as cold as this, you find it very important to use some sort of lotion. During the day, I use my hand cream about 10 times if not much more… The feeling of dry hands after you wash them just makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. I like to have soft, supple hands.
  •  Lip Balm – This is such a life saver and could be in either pot or stick form. Personally I don’t have a favorite, I like having both and carrying them with me at all times. If you want to have nice soft lips then you have to remember to take you lip balm wherever you go.
Also, I guess most people in winter have more or less neutral colors for boots and coats during the winter. At least most of my friends do. So personally, I like to add some color to my nails and lips. I like the combination of a neutral outfit and bright nails. So for me there are two more products I find vital during the winter:
  • Bright nail polish – I love bright nail polish at any time of the year. I like to wear it during summer, spring and autumn to compliment my outfit, and during the winter I like to wear them with neutrals. Giving that Bright, Bold and Beautiful effect.
  • Lip stick – red, pink or neutral lipstick, no matter the color, it still gives this fresh look.

     Which lip balm do you prefer pot or stick? What else do you like to keep with you at all times during the winter?
