The last week before Easter just began! Although the weather is a bit moody and chilly for this time of year, I am in full Spring spirits and Mint was the best color for me to express it. Now about that skirt... I saw it a month ago in ASOS and added it to my "wishlist" to buy it later. When I decided it was time for purchase the item was "out of stock" - Sadness and Frustration - Anyway, I let it go but was still on my mind, when suddenly I saw a "new in" under a different code looking exactly like it. So I bought it without any second thoughts and once I opened the parcel I realized why I was so obsessed with it: it is PERFECT!!
I have missed quite a few items in the past (and got some others I shouldn't...) and there was no way I was letting this one get away, too.
Is there a fashion item that got away and then you regretted it?
Although I own more than a few eyeshadows, singles and palettes, there is one that I use regularly: Boudoir Eyes by Too Faced. This palette has 3 triplets of nude and darker shadows named Day, Classic and Fashion perfectly matched for different occasions and styles.
I personally wear Day in a casual day or whenever I want to demonstrate a bold lip, Classic when going to an event or to a dinner with friends, and Fashion when going for a photoshoot or for a very special occasion, like a wedding or a party - to make it short, when going somewhere with the possibility of taking a photo =)
As with all Too Faced palettes, a show-and-tell centerfold Glamour Guide is included with detailed step-by-step instructions on creating three Boudoir Eyes looks. I do appreciate some guidance when putting on makeup! Gosh, I am totally useless...
Too Faced is one of my two top favorite beauty brands at this moment (the other one is Benefit Cosmetics). I am also a big fan of their Shadow Insurance Primer, which I never skip during my makeup routine.
Do you have a favorite palette? Is it from Too Faced? If not, from which one?

This dress was love at first sight and only when I put it on I realized why: I felt like a princess, like I was in a fairytale, like I was dreaming... The color, the fabric, the low back, the ruffles and of course the discreet slit on the front, identical to my wedding dress, instantly stole my heart. Despite all the amazing pieces from the H&M Conscious & Conscious Exclusive Collections I could choose from to participate to the contest, I picked THAT particular dress and definitely did not regret it.
AND please please please, be kind to click here and like my dress on Instagram, so you can help me win the H&M Contest ending tomorrow evening, Tuesday 8th April 2014 @ the H&M Black Tie Party!
Wish me luck =)
*The dress will be available in selected H&M stores from Thursday, 10 April 2014, and its price is 399.00 EUR 149.00 EUR
