Snapshots from Italy & a cheeky Kiko haul


I'm back baby!

Finally, after a lot of NO-WIFI troubles and not being able to catch up on blog posts and your lovely comments, I'm back home from Italy. I had a blast with a few of my best friends. Here are some pics!

Also, there's a little make up haul at the end so keep on reading ;-)

First evening in Manerba (Garda Lake) and already eating the biggest pizza in the neighborhood.

Little make up club. My friends were going through my make up bag and I had to explain everything, then I made them add some steps in their make up routine for the whole week we were there. I also pushed them into getting the Kiko eyeshadow sticks. Yay for bad influence!

Chillin' on a boat the first day with no make up because you know how it goes when you're trying to get a tan and stuff.



There's no denying this is probably the biggest ice cream you have ever seen.

Pizzaaaaaa, again. Because what else do you eat when you're in Italy?


I went to Kiko - obviously - and picked up the Water Eyeshadow in 200, which is a pretty light  golden shade.Then I bought a Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick in 37 which is kind of a marsala colour. It looks great on green eyes, which I happen to have. Then I picked up a Smart Eye Pencil in 800, again a light golden shade. I thought it would be perfect to put on the lower lash line or the inner corners. I also went for the Automatic Precision Eyeliner&Kohl in 714, which is just a standard purple colour. I was very intrigued by the new limited edition collection and picked out the Rebel Bouncy Blush in 01 Velvety Peach. I thought it would be an excellent everyday shade and just really wanted to try a new cream blush.

Lastly I picked up a new YSL Touche Eclat, because my old one FINALLY ran out. This one is a limited edition packaging I've seen around but was never able to get hold of. So glad I finally have this one!

Hope you all had a great summer and I'll start catching up on reading blogs and answering to your comments now ;-)

Lots of love,

  4. I've had enough pizza for a whole month haha ;) Yes I'm glad I finally got to swatch them. The mermaid-y turquoise colour seemed so pretty as well but I didn't think I would wear it much, I still almost bought it just to swatch it on my hand from time to time and look at the pretty colour, haha! ;)

  5. Looks you had a grand time. I love Italy. And now I'm craving pizza...and more of those Kiko Water eyeshadows!
