Inglot 10% off Offer!

Don't forget my lovelies, from today on until Saturday, the Inglot store at Donauzentrum has a 10% off everything offer. :-)

I wish I had some money to spare, but I'm pretty sure after buying the Marilyn Monroe items I "need" I'm broke. *gg*


Marilyn Monroe Preview Night

This is going to be short, really short.. I was exactly 20 seconds in that store and then left, cause it was so overcrowded and they had only one freaking display!!

Let's show you that insanity:

See the display down there? I had to stand on my toes and photograph over my head to get that picture..

I decided I can wait til Monday. Did you wait and get something?

Catrice "Fabulous 40ties" Haul

I love hauls. *g* Catrice really created a lovely LE and I had to get those two. (Even though I'm actually on a lipstick ban..)

Gone With The Wind:

Holly Rose Wood:

It's so pretty!

What did you get?


Storing Medication: The Cool Way

This has nothing to do with beauty per se, nevertheless, I wanted to post it, cause it's a topic that's very important for me.

I do have several severe chronical illnesses. They are a part of me and I'm not ashamed of them.

I'm not gonna list what I have today. It's quite difficult, cause it's so much and I'm always worried that people think I just want their pity. It always ends like that, even though it's unmeant. 

I've been looking for a pill box that doesn't look like I'm 80 or in a hospital for ages. A couple of days ago I found it and I wanted to show it to you, cause it's so cool and maybe you're looking for something like that too.

Here it is:

How cool, right? A keyboard!

You can open each day seperately and there's a lot of space!

I do need to take 8 pills each day to stay "healthy", though I'll never be healthy, so let's just say alive. So, you can image that I was worried that all the pills would fit in..

And they did!! How awesome is that?!

So, here we go. The full glory. ;-)

It wasn't a bargain. It cost 9,90€, but I think it's totally worth it. If you need one as well, I bought it at the SCS, on the first floor right at the beginning next to the IKEA entrance on the left side. Pretty cool, right?

INGLOT arrived!

Hey my dear ones,

This is a long post, so get some coffee ;-)

I'm sure you've already heard about it, but one can't see enough pictures. 

INGLOT arrived in Vienna! Finally, I'm so excited!! MAC just got some serious competition.. It's such a pleasure to see all those big, amazing brands coming to us. 

Before I'll talk a little about it, here some pictures:

Lashes, as far as the eye can see:

Pretty sure you'll find your skin tone down there:


Square eyeshadows are coming, but later more:

Professional through and through:

The famous (and freaking awesome) Freedom System:

Nail Polish Porn:

Some stuff for the professionals (love it):

I died a little..

Well, as you can see this store has everything a beauty lover needs. I'm sure you could go in without one single beauty product and leave with everything you'll ever need. *g* 

This store is at Vienna's Donauzentrum and won't be the only one. :-)

There are stores planned in Linz and Salzburg and (if I remember correctly) one in the new shopping center G3 in Gerasdorf which will open soon including a Primark. (jumping-around-a-little)

The prices are reasonable. I'm sure you all know their freedom system in which you choose an empty palette and fill it with products such as eyeshadows, but powders and blushes as well.

Some numbers:

Single square eyeshadow (which will replace the round ones): 7€
Rainbow shadows: 10€
They have different palettes.You can get one for 3, 4, 5, 10, 20 or even 40 eyeshadows. The ones for 10 products is 10€ and for 5 shadows 7€.
Cream eyeliner: 13€
Pigments: 15€

There will be a pro discount available though I don't have any details yet and an online shop. :-)

This week, from Thursday until Saturday, they have a 10% off offer. So stop by if you find time.

Another cool thing that they did on opening day: If you visited the store between 2 and 3 pm and said a code word, you got a lipstick for free. I mean how freaking amazing is that?

It's a classic red shade and looks amazing. It's lovely pigmented and feels soft and smooth. Here it is:


I don't own many Inglot products (yet). I have three of their cool duocrome glosses and three of the famous, flaky nail polishes. I'm gonna show you some photos and swatches in the next couple of days. :-)

So what do you think? Happy that Inglot arrived? I am. I hope more brands will follow.

B Pretty - Ruby Surprise

Hello lovelies,

Today I have something really pretty for you. A couple of days ago, I was strolling through Bipa looking for Essie's "Don't Sweater It" (of course it was sold out) and saw something truly surprising.

A gorgeous nail polish from b pretty. The ones who know b pretty, know that this brand is not really something you usually look at. At least, I never did, it's rather something kids would buy when first experimenting with make up.

But they do have a LE at the moment with a chrome theme, I'm not a fan of chrome, but I saw this polish and couldn't believe my eyes. Look at that beauty:


Know what I mean? How gorgeous is this shade? 

It's called "Ruby Surprise" and is truly amazing. Now the best part, it costs 1,29€. I mean how can you beat that?

What do you think? I think you should definitely buy it if you can. *g*

MAC x Marilyn Monroe Collection

I just saw these at temptalia and died a little.. So beautiful, so exquisite looking.

All pictures belong to temptalia and you can find the post here. I just had to share these with you.. There are more photos on her site, I only showed you the items/categories of which I'll "have" to buy something. *gg*

What do you think? Are you drooling like me??

Trends of Beauty Vienna 2012

I was really excited when I read that there will be a Beauty trade show in Vienna. After all, I've been waiting for years. *gg*

Besides 300 exhibitors, there will be two competitions and several lectures. It sounds great and does remind me of big shows like IMATS, the only catch (and that's a tough one) is that only professionals are allowed. 

It's kinda sad, cause I think there is enough potential and many people would love to visit and enjoy the show. On the other hand, it's great for professionals to have a secluded show one can focus on products and equipment. 

So, if you are a professional and have time, definitely stop by. I will. :-)

You have to identify yourself with one of these: 
  • Membership card of the Wirtschaftskammer
  • Trade Certificate or Education Certificate
  • Confirmation of your employer

To find all the infos such as opening hours and location, visit their website here.

Origins Make A Difference Plus+

Since I'm a huge Origins fan, I always get more than excited when they announce a new product. So when I got the mail, I jumped around a little and of course I had to share that info with you.

After five years of research looking for the enzyme that is responsible for the balance of moisture in your skin, Caspase 14, they created a cream that moisturizes your face constantly, but balances it if needed.

As always, the cream is packed with a ton of amazing natural ingredients, such as urea, lychee, watermelon, rhodocrosit, orange, mint and many more. 

To make sure the cream meets your needs, they created three versions. 

For combination to dry skin:
For oily to combination skin:

and for dry and really dry skin:

I always welcome it when brands focus on different skin types within one series. It will be released in October containing 50 ml and will cost 44€. Not exactly a bargain, but Origins products never disappointed me so far and your face is a really important part of you, invest in it for the future.

So what do you think? I'm excited!!

Weight Loss Update

Hey guys,

I'm sure you've been curious about how I'm doing. Only okay, to be honest.

By now, I lost 11 kg and am holding that weight, which isn't bad, but I want to lose more. Life got in the way though..

With the death of our family dog and the black hole I fell in afterwards, I kinda stopped thinking about working out and counting points. I'm finally feeling better and am starting again to work on my body and nutrition.

I told you that I joined Weight Watchers and it really worked great, I constantly lost about a 1 kg a week, but I also payed 20€ a week for going there just to weigh myself..

There is an one hour course each week, but it's like a group therapy with topics such as "Stock your refridgerator right". I'm not the group therapy girl, so I usually skipped these courses and 20€ a week was too much just for using their scale.

I know how the system works, so I thought I can do this myself, but I must admit that as soon as I stopped going, it became much harder. The motivation and the "pressure" to succeed is gone and you get sidetracked way too easily. So in some way, I regret quitting, but as a student it's just so expensive..

It's twice as hard to keep going, but I'm really gonna try again, one just needs willpower and since I'm finally feeling better I'm positive I can do it on my own.

I'd love to copy and upload all the documents you need for using their system so you can try it without spending so much money, but I'm pretty sure I'll get sued by them if I'm doing that..

I decided to show you a picture of myself, not just of my face. It's not easy for me, cause I hate myself, but on the other side I think (or at least my therapist told me - yes I'm in therapy and not ashamed of it) it's important to be proud of each step as well.

This outfit is a big deal for me. You can't see it well, but I'm wearing trousers, something I haven't done for over a year, if not longer. My old one didn't fit anymore and now it does again. I'm also wearing this lovely coat I bought in Edinburgh which then only barely fit me, now it does. 

What do you think? Do you like me? 

Kronos does or I guess he's wondering why the hell I'm (for once) not focusing on him. Such a poor dog.. Maybe someone should call animal protection.. ;-)
