Happy Thanksgiving! I’m getting ready for the big dinner and talking all the latest Black Friday beauty deals and my Back Friday wishlist. I’m also using my Sephora VIB sale purchases to get ready because..NEW GOODIES!
Oh dear, I’m back with another post. Can you believe it? two in a week. Jokes aside, I’m here today to talk to you about how I (and many others) take advantage of my spending addiction to save a little money here and there. I was contacted by TopCashBack to try out their service and boy was it the perfect timing. I went on a crazy shopping spree online for my birthday and managed to set aside some pretty penny from it too.
Ah holidays and shopping, a winning couple if you ask me. Over the Christmas holidays I went to visit my family in Italy, other than eating my self to oblivion, I went a few times to shop in Sephora, Wycon and the drugstore. I had made a wish/shopping list for both skincare and makeup to start with, and went from there to pick up a few more things.
Springtime is exciting for many reasons and one of them is new launches from cosmetic brands. Being a drugstore girl at heart, that’s where I went as soon as the new additions to the permanent collection from Catrice and Essence came out. I am a big fan of both these affordable brands and always on the hunt for great products. What really hit me was that most of the new bits were centering on a nude effect.
Keeping on the theme of my favorite drugstore brands, today we’re talking about Kiko Makeup Milano. Every time I visit a country that hosts their shops, I cannot avoid entering and treating myself with some goodies! My favorite thing is to check out their new Limited Editions, which they switch every 3-4 months. For Fall and Winter 2014 Kiko’s Daring Game collection brings lots of sophisticated, sleek looking products in deep and metallic shades to the shops. I couldn’t resist! I picked up a few products and here’s my thoughts!
I just came back from holidays and can’t wait to share all the bits and pieces I got in Italy!
First things first, I spent an amazing 2 weeks showing my better half the city I grew up in and all the things that make it special to me and let me tell you, all is even more special when you rediscover your hometown as a tourist! We weren’t blessed with the best of weather all the time but still enjoyed every minute of it! We stayed at my parent’s house and were utterly spoiled by amazing lunch and dinners from my mom. No use in saying I came back with a few kilos too many but after all who wants to be on a diet while on holiday in Italy!? I don’t! So amazing food, beautiful places, lots of love from those who mean the most to me, the perfect holiday!
Of course while I was there I made sure to pick up some beauty related bits that I cannot get in The Netherlands and got to the check in at the airport on the way back terrorized I might have to leave something behind (which didn’t happen hihi)!
I seized the moment and had made an order over at Nabla Cosmetics for some of their new eyeshadows and them delivered at my parents’ to save on shipping costs.
