H&M The New Icons Collection and a new black biker jacket

H&M's The New Icons Collection caught my eye immediately since I love Liu Wen. Honestly... a chinese model for H&M *yay* She's modeling for Esprit atm too.
I love the style for The New Icons Collection.

So I went to H&M to check these out. I didn't find any of the items beside the bag for ca. 80 €.  But I found a similar biker jacket. I love it and it was quite comfortable. For 40 € I took it with me. I'm not willing to pay much for a jacket when I don't know if I will wear it next year too. So this was a good choice.

Lately I have found my love for smoothies. There are plenty of shops selling these but I find them a bit expensive. For this little cup I paid 3,50 €. It's healthy - yes - but it's really expensive and not really worth the money. So I was thinking to buy a mixer instead and make my own smoothies. I'm sure there are plenty of recipes on the net.


benefit ULTRA SHINES lip gloss in #who are you wearing?

Happy Friday !

I went a little shopping in Douglas (which is a german drugstore line) and look what I found at 50% discount! Hmm I should get more of these... because this lip gloss is amazing!

benefit's ULTRA SHINES lip gloss in "who are you wearing?" ...a strange name O_O I still didn't get it (some of you understand it maybe?).

The packaging is pretty nice. A bit hypnotising.

You can still get it online at benefit's webstore. The little golden star is super cute <3

The colour is a gorgeous pink with rich sparkles. I always find that the application of lip glosses is much more easy than lipsticks. It's not sticky and the colour shows nicely. It has the same scent as other benefit lip glosses.

Here is a swatch:

I think it's a nice pink lip gloss that can be used at work. Since I got it, I'm using it a lot at work too. It's subtle enough, but still gives my lips colour and a moisturized look.

Even though you want to look serious and competent at work, you still want to be young and fresh right? 

All in all a wonderful lip gloss ^^


Little gold earrings

I received these earrings when I graduated from high school (which is some years ago haha). I thought I lost them during a move, but finally found them safely wrapped in a tissue. Since I can only wear silver and gold earrings, I don't have a lot of different earrings. So I like to wear these to work too. I saw a lot of pics with little gold earrings some time ago on japanese blogs and I always loved them. I'm very happy that I found them.


ESCADA cherry in the air (limited edition)

Finally I have some time for blogging since it's a national holiday today. I also have holiday for the next 2 days, so I can relax a bit from work.

A thew days ago my boyfriend got me the Escada Cherry in the air perfume. I love ESCADA perfumes... especially their "Magnetism". For 3 years I was thinking to get it, but I was never really sure (instead I bought easily things that I'm not half interested in... how come?!). 

When the Cherry in the air came out I liked it in a easy way. I wanted it but I didn't want to waste the money too. So I was really happy when my boyfriend got me this. I'm using it every day so far.

The little bottle is absolutely gorgeous! The colour and the shape... just perfect in my eyes.

AND the little cherries on the back of the bottle. OMG! How sweet is that ?!

I think the packaging is very pretty too. Although I don't like the face of the girl. I like the colours and the theme. I also received a big pink ESCADA blanket with my purchase, which is a really nice plus.

For me the scent of "cherry in the air" is so very much irresistable and addictive. I think explaining a scent is a very difficult task. It must suit you in every bit who you are and who you want to be, to let it feel "just perfect for you". I'm very happy to say, that this scent is just perfect for me now.

Top Notes: black cherry, raspberry and mandarin
Heart Notes: gardenia petals, coconut orchid, vanilla and marshmallow
