Beauty and Body Stuff I am bringing to Viena,

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

In a couple of days I will be going on my first mini break with my BF to Viena, and I cannot wait! I am already day dreaming about walking around Schönbrunn and its gardens, visit the Prater Ferris Wheel, The Stephans Dome the city centre the art museum and check out the beautiful architecture. In my head this city looks so Baroque and oldy worldly which makes it the perfect setting for a Romantic get away.

Once I am there, I will be sure to take a lot of holiday snips and hopefully write some blog posts. But enough Day Dreaming on my side and lets talk Beauty and Body stuff I I am bringing to Viena!

Thumbs April favorites and unfavorites

Thumbs April favorites and unfavorites

Hi Friends,

It is nearly the end of the month and it is time for sharing my faves and unfaves for the month of April. Compared to last month I am enjoying a lot of things. Unfortunately I had to add 2 un-favorites for this month but we will come to that towards the end of this post. Lets get started shall we?

Favorites

Big hoop earrings – I bought these earrings myself and I love them. They just give that lil bit extra to your look.

Becca Champagne Pop Highlighter- This highlighter makes my skin so glowy and gives my make up such a lovely finish. I do admit that sometimes I have used a little bit too much, but hey it is my face!

Rimmel 9-in 1 BB cream- When you feel like you don’t want to wear a lot of make up  and you just want some coverage, this is the thing to use. Plus it has some spf to it so good for the protection against the sun.

Carmen  HD2390 Hairdryer- Eventhough this hairdryer was not that expensive it has some power to it. It dries my hair really quickly and it has a nice diffuser with it. Eventhough I am still lacking the skills using this diffuser properly I love it.

Nike running shoes – Wow these shoes are so comfortable. They feel really  light and it is like walking on air with these shoes.  I just love  the pink Nikce logo. Hmm might ask a second pair in black and white for my birhtday.

MAC Mehr – I love this color and it feels so comfortable in the lips and I get compliments when wearing this color which is always nice. It is not too much it is just right.

Restaurant Mandarijn – They just serve glorious food here. It is very affordable and the service is really nice. Last time for my mothers birthday  I ordered the crab dish and it was delicious. Just hard to get in ggegeeg

Un-favorite 

Max  Factor Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara – This mascara is trying to kill me by poking my eyeball out!  I just find it very uncomfortable working with this mascara. .

Breaking up. After nearly five years my boyfriend and I decided to break up. Eventhough this hurts, currently it is the best thing to do for me. And as people say there are many fish in the sea. I will just keep on doing the things that make me happy!

Concluding with the un-favorites ends this post. I hope you all liked reading this one! Until next time friends and hope to see you back soon.

XoXo,

Kim

 

Thumbs September Empties!

Thumbs September Empties!

Hello dear readers and loyal subbies,

It is October and this month, I have some empties from September! Somehow I managed to collect some empties. Still I am very surprised that it is that little as it is. In my weird little mind, I used a lot! So lets get through my bag off empties!

Skincare

  • Clinique Repair wear laser focus eye cream. This is a wrinkle correcting eye cream. I am very sad this is, in my empties. I thought it really worked and now I am like, hey am I getting more wrinkles? Which would be such a big no no! Must repurchase!
  •  Etos Night Cream . This cream I used to really like. Now I am sort  of re-querying it. I think because I am getting older my skin demand has changed. So it is not doing miracles for my skin. Which is ok, but it means I need to find something else.

Body

  • Vaseline Moisture locking cream. Errg I love Vaseline, but this one did not really work for me. It was hard rubbing it in the skin, and I did not like poking my fingers in the cream. Which is strange because I love my Body Shop Butter, and I do poke my fingers in there.
  • Soap and Glory  Clean on me shower gel. A must to repurchase. This smells so clean and it has a built in body lotion. Which is nice . Again another must repurchase.
  • Etos Tooth paste cool mint.

Make-up

  •  Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara . Still my fave mascara however going back to Maybeline the Rocket as I do have some good memory of this mascara
  •  Garnier  BB cream in fair.  This is my fave BB cream. The only thing  with this  BB Cream is, that its not really suitable for Light skin because I still think it is quite dark for my skin, but somehow I made it work. But I will repurchase mostly likely in spring/ summer.

Nails

  • Etos Nail polish remover . Good remover and yeesh repurchase as my current remover is crap.

Miscellaneous

  •  Cotton pads
  • Tea trea oil

April Empties + mini reviews

April Empties + mini reviews

My dear dear readers,

Welcome back to Thumbelinaslifestyle it is May and another month has gone and passed. I am soooo excited for this month, a lot of exciting of things are going to happen but for now let ‘s go through my little brown bag full of goodies. Somehow I have a lot of items to share with you all.

Hair

SONY DSC

  • Sebastian Thickefy Foam. For people with fine thin hair (like me) this product is great. The product thickened my hair enormously after I washed and blow dried my hair.
  • Cameleo permanent hair color cream in dark brown. Love this hair colouring and for the price its super. Especially for girls on a budget. We all want to look good but don’t want to be scraping the barrel at the end of the month.

Beauty

SONY DSCSONY DSC

  • Mac Fix Plus. I only have good things to say about this product. I love the feeling when I spritz this on my face so refreshing. Also it does make your make up last longer.
  • Max Factor Clump defy mascara in black. Some people claim that this mascara is a dupe for the Cover Girl clump crusher. Even though I have never tried the Cover girl mascara, I have to write, I don’t like this mascara. I thought I liked this mascara but every day I came home I had residue or flaking underneath my eyes.
  • Catrice Glamour Doll Curl &Volume Mascara. Urgg the rant continues. Could not believe I had this mascara in my beauty case. Needed to get rid of it plus it dried out completely.
  • Lobello Pearly shine lip balm. This lip balm was ok however this balm did not work for me when I had chapped lips. The shine doubles the effect of chapped lips.
  • Max Factor False lash effect mascara in black. Need I write more, I have been loving this mascara for a while now. Thank god I have a back -up mascara.Please Max Factor don’t discontinue this mascara.
  • Super Drug Nourishing Nail remover pads.My thoughts are still the  same good item for purse. This in case of emergencies.
  • Catrice Made to stay Inside Eye highlighter pen. This product seemed to work for the first view weeks but afterwards it seemed to dry up and the product did not function anymore.

Body

SONY DSC

  • Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash. I love this revitalizing body wash. Such a shame that no drugstore in Holland stocks it. I might have found a similar and cheaper body wash. But still  I wouldn’t mind a store that sells it.
  • Soap & Glory  Smoothie Breakfast Scrub. Love the smell and the effect it has on my body. Read all about this in my  lazy day blog.  Love love  this scrub
  • Van der Hoog Yummy Yogurt face mask. This was the first time I used this face mask and boy was this nice. The smell is sooo fresh and it does make my face feel so soft. Since I loved this mask I restocked this mask. Hmm might have a little mask time this Sunday.
  • Oral B floss. It was just floss only pity I could not finish the product as I could not get the floss out in the end.
  • Super Drug blended tea oil. Aaha the love affair continues. This product is amazeballs and helps against spots or other little skin issues

For last months blog click here. I hope you all liked my empties and hope to see you soon in my next blog . At the moment I am  busy with writing a review
