How I clean and maintain my make-up brushes….

…..

Hi guys,
(post contains affiliate links / Werbung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links)
let´s talk beauty today. I love my make-up brushes and if you are a little like me you don´t switch them that often or never get a new one (I only have one blush brush I am using all the time and if it ever gets lost I probably get a physical meltdown :)). So with that said I am taking good care of  my brushes to guarantee them a long life.

I let them soak for about half an hour in warm water and also rinse with warm water after the cleansing process. I make sure all the surplus water is gone and lay them on a kitchen towel or and actual towel to dry. Take about a day.

 First of all you need soap. Whether you are using a dish soap or a Dove soap, actual soap is really recommended for deep cleansing your brushes. I am using the real techniques brush cleansing gel and I love it. Somehow it manages to get all the dirt out very quick. Also it makes my brushes smell fresh and makes the hairs look nice and new again.

If you just want to freshen them up quickly you can use the essence brush cleansing spray. This is really just a compromise. But if you are on the run..

Another thing you want want to use it this pink make-up brush cleaner. The different structures on the pad help so much on cleaning your brushes. Be aware of how much dirt is coming out. This was the actual point to wash my bruhes more often cause you don´t want to apply all this old make-up again and again to your face.
I have listed the pad below along with some other options. Cheaper and pricier.


Overall it takes some time but the upsides are much more convincing cause your brushes are going to last longer and look fresh and new and also your skin might profit from clean brushes since you are not applying all the germs which are hidden inside the brush head.

Which products do you use for cleaning your brushes? And do you have a routine?

How to style Ultra Violet the Pantone color of the year 2018….

Hi guys,

every year we are awaiting the arrival of the new Pantone color of the year and this year it is a vibrant and bold color – ultra violet.

I am a lover of most bold colors and this beauty is no exception. Whether you are looking for a lipstick, an eye shadow or just some accessories. I am going to have you covered. There are going to be some more post about this lovely color. 

So for today´s look I have teamed up with Zaful to show you one way to combine the stunning ultra violet color with a soft hue of lavender. 

Since this is such a vibrant color I would opt for a less exciting color to combine like pastells, nudes or black or white. The sweet ruffle detailing adds some girly flair to the sleek pencil skirt. Also the flouncy layered sleeve pullover is a little cropped in the front so that makes it easier to tuck it in into high waisted skirts or pants. It is available in six other colors so there might be one you love too. Be sure to check the size guide of their products cause they tend to run small.

My accessories are kept nude to leave the focus on the main colors the look is about. A pair of patent platform heels and a classic handbag with a modern twist (the embroidery really makes it a stunner) help to round up the look.
 Since I am all about Spring the temperatures started to drop a lot and since I ordered my first pieces it started to snow. Somehow I now think it is my fault!!! Hope it gets better after this snow fall. I want to wear lighter blouses and skirts so badly.

Hi guys,

 I made these for last years Christmas and they where a total hit so I wanted to share the “recipe” with you. 

This is my recipe for an homemade, organic and in fact totally eatable – I tried that – body scrub.

I
made some for the women in our families as a little present to the
usual ones we got. But this doesn´t have to be a Christmas present – you
can make this and gift this year round. Just take other tags and paper
bags for the pots.

 So
this is really easy, all you need is coconut oil, brown sugar and some
vanilla extract – all depending on how much you want to make. Take two
cups of coconut oil, two cups of sugar and one tablespoon of vanilla
extract. You can double as much as needed. Stir until the mixture is smooth and fill it into the glass vessels. 



That´s it. Super easy right. You can personalize it as much as you want by different bags or tags or stickers. 

Have a nice weekend. Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

A refreshing summer drink recipe and the cutest glassware from H&M….

H&M glass palm print / H&M glass with golden edge not the same but very close / H&M palm print carafe / tunic bonprix (runs big, go down one size)
…..

Hi dolls,

with the beginn of summer we are craving light and refreshing drinks the minute the sun goes up. I have to admit I am not a big fan of mixing juices or cocktails. It is just too sweet and I don´t like it at all but I am a wine lover and I have found a great option.

A dry rosé wine, Schweppes Russian Wild Berry, raspberries and mint leaves – this makes the perfect symphony for your taste buds. You can mix it however it tastes best for you so now meassuring. I mixed two-thirds wine with one third Schweppes.

Speaking of perfect – how beautiful are these glasses and the carafe. The golden palm leaf print is so aborable and it is the perfect set for summer. This adds so much chic to dining outdoors and they are definitely a highlight in your glass cabinet.

I also got this metal tray for carrying all the glasses but it would also make a nice piece of decoration.

What are your favorite refreshments for Summer ?

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care. See you.
