PERSONAL UPDATE #3

9/29/2012 Pixels By Emilia 19 Comments

Totally forgot to upload this picture Constant took last week, when we went to Rotterdam.

I don't have a lot to talk about today. I'm feeling really sad at the moment, because someone I love passed away last week and someone else I love isn't doing well either. I'm so lucky to have some amazing friends and a super sweet boyfriend, who all now how to cheer me up. Love you guys!
Anyway, I hope you'll all have a great weekend! I'm off to a party at a friend's house tonight, if I can get my party-mode on, and tomorrow I'm having a brunch with the family and I'll probably spend the rest of the day making homework.

Base,

TWO TIMES BUDGET

9/24/2012 Pixels By Emilia 18 Comments

Nope, I'm not a beauty blogger, but I started to search for some make-up holy grails and I thought it would be nice to share my thoughts on the products I'm testing with you.
Starting off with some budget products. (Would be great if my holy grails would all by cheap-ass products, right? My wallet would be so happy.)



First product I bought was this powder, the 'Skin Finish Compact Powder' from Catrice. I've been using compact powder for years now, but I never sticked to one favorite brand. This one works perfectly, though you have to make sure you don't use too much of it, because it makes your face looks very powdery really fast. But the coverage is great!
Another plus: the color. My skin is so pale, even the lightest tone of foundation is often too dark for my face. But this one would even match my extremely white winter skin.
It's not a holy grail, but it's not a bad product. And for only €3,99 it's actually a great product.



Second product I tested was this primer, also from Catrice. The 'Prime and Fine Illuminating Base'. I never use primer, because I never experienced the benefits of it (maybe I always used bad quality primers), but I decided to give it another try.
I don't see the luminous finish it promises, but this stuff makes my skin feel soft en look healthy. Also, it makes applying foundation a lot easier
The smell of this base is something you can't ignore, you either love it or hate it. Personally, I like it. It makes me think of peach flavored yoghurt drink (for the Dutchies: perzik fristi of bonomel). But maybe that's just me.
This base costs €4,99.

Both products are fine (and the prices are great too) and I'll use them till they're finished. But after that I'll try some new products, since I haven't found a holy grail in these products yet.

Today I went to Rotterdam with Constant. There was an event in the city centre that we wanted to check out, but we didn't stay too long because we wanted to do some shopping too. Bought a nice jacket that I might show you soon!

INSTAPOST #3

Waiting for my train / With Roxy / Delicious salad made by Constant
Cheering up my sad friend / My grandparents had their 60th wedding anniversary  / fresh juice
Love / Some of my shoes / Bought new skates
Daddy's homemade blackberry jam / Michael got me flowers, so sweet / bored
Beautiful sunrise / Falafel, yum / Had to cut off my nails for school :(

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know I'm still alive and that I'm totally fine. School started two weeks ago and except for the fact I'm not allowed to wear high heels in class, it's great! I really like my classmates and the courses seem pretty interesting so far.
As you might have noticed from the lack of updates lately, I'm really busy already. But I'm trying to keep you posted as often as possible! Hope you understand.
Love, Emilia

LAST WEEKEND

9/03/2012 Pixels By Emilia 39 Comments










I've had such a great weekend! It started on Thursday already, when I passed my driving theory test (yay!). On Friday I went to Rotterdam with my friend Janneke, on Saturday I drove to the south of the country (Zeeland) with my boyfriend and on Sunday Constant and I went to Amsterdam for a little shopping and had some drinks in the evening.
I took the pictures above at the beach in Zeeland.
