I can’t believe it’s already April… this year is flying by like CRAZY! maybe that’s why it’s my first “favourites post” this year (I know this is a >very< bad excuse – but hey I tried).
actually I discovered a LOT of nice stuff this year but I just couldn’t find the time to write about it and neither could I decide which ones to mention in a post. so I resolved to only feature a few items and make another favourites post (hopefully) once a month.
in this first favourites post I’m going to show you my fashion and beauty top choices – my food picks will be mentioned in a future post!
first things first: JOANIE CLOTHING! it’s a new and unique womenswear brand with fun, flirtation and femininity at its heart. I bloody love it! the colours, the shapes, the fit – it’s just amazing. they sell dresses, shirts, jumpers, glasses, bags etc. etc. and what I like most about this brand is that you can purchase these goodies from size 8 to 22 – lovely!
I ordered a bunch of stuff but my favourite items are the robot stripe top, the rattan basket bag and the Viola Gingham off-the-shoulder top. these were absolute bargains and the quality is amazing.
another one of my favourites so far is definitely the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette. the colours of this palette are INSANE: amber-hued neutrals – including warm browns, burnt oranges and rich siennas. From a super-smooth red-brown matte and a glimmering copper to a deep, shifty bronze, this palette has everything you need to create sultry daytime looks, intensely smoky nighttime looks and everything in between. my favourite shades are en fuego, ashes and dirty talk – these are the ones I mainly used for this look.
I know, with CHF 65.- (54£) this palette seems a bit pricy – but you get 12 highly pigmented, beautiful shades so it’s actually only CHF 5.40 (4.50£) per colour. in my opintion it’s worth it – they last for a >very< long time and look stunning.
lastly I wanted to show you something you shouldn’t miss out! the StylPro makeup brush cleaner & dryer – this is BRILLIANT. I am honestly shattered that I didn’t know about this for this long because now I couldn’t live without it!
it works with high-tech centrifugal spin technology to give your favourite brushes the equivalent of a trip to the dry cleaners, it leaves them completely dry so you can use them in seconds. I was really amazed by how fast this works and how good the result is. my brush collection only contains Real Techniques brushes – and because of the eight flexible silicone collars they’re all suitable for this cleaner!
have you got some new favourites this year so far? I’d love to hear from you ❤
