My Super Easy Eyebrow Ritual

"You must never underestimate the power of the eyebrow."
Jack Black

Eyebrows are one of the most important features of the face, if you ask me, so putting them into the right light and defining their contour is defnitely a must.

I am without doubt not talented at all when it comes to applying make up, so when I found these two little eye brow helpers, I was in make up rookie heaven :) The eye brow marker is a genius invention: stronger definition of brows than by applying a colored powder make up, much more natural result than when using a pencil and defnitely a whole lot easier to use for non-experts like me. The eye brow fixing gel is the perfect final touch to tame rebel hairs and keep them organized.

I recommend the H&M eye brow fixer and the Kiko Milan marker, total 10 Eur.Below some pics to illustrate.

What do you use for your brows? Any other make up tips?
Do share, sweeties.

Little Rust Riding Hood

Hoods attachted to cloaks in women's fashion date back to the beginning of the 18th century and they indeed used to be of a red scarlet color until black became very popular towards the end of the century.
Apparently the "Little Red Riding Hood" was a true fashionista back in her days :).

Hugs to all of you my sweeties and may you all have a lovely Sunday!

Noah's Ark in a Bag

You probably know what it feels like to just walk around the city, calm, relaxed and happy, enjoying the sun, the sights, the people walking by, with no intention whatsoever to shop on that day...until you spot that special piece in a shiny window display and you proceed to shopping, despite the good intentions not to do so :) Well this is what happend to me last week in lovely Madrid, where the moment I laid eyes on this bag I was all smiles and joy! It's 100% no name & 110% China ware, but one of the cutest items I own, chique and playful, with a happy girlie vibe, totally me :)
