Mix of the Week: Haul, EOTD, Poli …

Maybe you’ve noticed that I’ve been a bit absent in the past month or so. There’s no particular reason for that (and at the same time there’s tons of reasons, but I’m not going to talk about them). I guess the main reason is that I’ve been giving a lot of energy in this blog in the past three years and now I need a bit of time to recharge my batteries. At the moment I just don’t enjoy writing posts and taking photos of make up. I hope that will change soon (I’m very unpredictable, maybe I’ll be back on track tomorrow – who knows). Until then I’ll write a post or two from time to time. This is not a goodbye post or anything like it, I just wanted to let you know, why there’s less posts than usual.

Today I have a mix of the week for you. Here we go …

My cat had to be taken to the vet, because he’s been fighting with another cat and the wound got infected. (Don’t worry, he’s already feeling much better.)

Poli

Poli ...

He’s such a cute, brave and good cat. He helped to reorganize one of our fish tanks …

Sleeping in my light box was a challenge (even for him).

I’ve been shopping a bit last week. I got some nice make up stuff on sale. And some (well actually a lot of) candy too ..

I wanted to buy DS Mystery for a long long time now, but I always changed my mind, because it was too expensive. And now I got it on sale and I’m happy.

I bought DS Illuminate because of the green flash.

This one looked like a nice nude shade.

This eyeshadow duo looked promising and also the tester was nice quality. I bought it because it was on sale and also because it’s such a basic duo with almost completely matte eyeshadows.

Catrice - 070 Double Espresso Macchiato, Please!

The light shade is almost invisible on my skin. The dark shade is hard and needs a couple of layers to become visible and even as it is in the photo below. I’m not impressed.

I haven’t been adventurous with make up for a long time now. I’ve been mostly wearing brown tones on my eyes. My make up from yesterday using Catrice – Berlin make up palette …

I’ve been neglecting my nails. The result … My nails are not in a good shape at the moments and they are very short (which I don’t mind, but they look funny on photos). My cuticles are dry. My nails have been naked almost a week now. I wore only a base coat. Yesterday I painted them in a nice nude color: Catrice – Mona Lisa Is Staring Back. It’s a lovely milky peachy pink shade with nice gold shimmer. Very lovely and work appropriate color. It’s very easy to apply. It even looks nice and even with only one coat. I think you can build it up to full opacity with three coats. This shade is on sale right now, because it’s soon going to be discontinued. You can get it for 2€ right now.

And weird photos of today’s FOTD using the Catrice eyeshadow duo I showed you above. After trying these eyeshadows I can not recommend them. The light eyeshadows barely shows on my skin and the brown one is hard and not pigmented enough for my liking. Though the brown one could be very good for eyebrows.

  1. poor kitty, hope he’ll recover soon :°)
    DS illuminate is on my stash (and my nails) right now, I received it from a swap a couple of weeks ago ;D

  2. zelo lep make up look

  3. Ojoj Poli, bošček, me veseli, da se počuti bolje. :wub: Ima pa tako lep obrazek, ajoj cukrček. :love: Kar naberi si dovolj energije in naj traja kolikor mora, mi bomo še vseeno tu. :yes:
    OPI-je sem si pa nahitro ogledala v Müllerju v četrtek, jih je bilo res ogromno znižanih, zato sem jih le na hitro pregledala in kupila tisto, po kar sem prišla. :angel:

  4. ti si kar napolni baterije in napisi kak post, ko bos res cutila navdih za to ;)
    jah, te muci so pravi nagajivci … moja se sicer ne zeni, je pa v zadnjem casu polna energije, ze prevec polna energije… neprestano skace sem ter tja. in tudi ona pomaga pri vseh hisnih opravilih… pometemo skupaj, pospravljamo skupaj in ja, tudi akvarij cistimo skupaj. res lepo od nje xD ti pa pocohi Polija se v mojem imenu in v imenu moje muce Mufe. upam, da bo kmalu brez satelita. :akitty:
    jaz imam tudi lak od Catrice, ker se je tudi meni zdel preprost a lusen. pa se ime mi je blo vsec :P drugace sem pa ta teden kupila predvsem nekaj pripomockov za lase- spangice, sponke, barvo za lase itd.

  5. Lušne pridobitve :yes:
    Pocartaj se z mačkom in si naberi nove energije :ahug:

  6. Mislim da imamo istog macora,moj izgleda skoro pa identicno ;) Mmmmm, DS Mystery izgleda savrseno!

  7. Zelo pogrešam tvoje zanimive prispevke. :yes: Kmalu se vrni v vsej svoji kreativnosti! :thumb:

  8. Kakšen lušten muc :wub: .

    Izgleda da je neko čudno obdobje sedaj. V dec in zdaj januarju sem tudi jaz čisto na ‘low’ z energijo. Tudi na razprodaje nisem šla nič pogledat pa grem ponavadi vsaj na koncu le teh malo naokoli. Tudi kozmetike nisem veliko kupovala (mislim da v januarju samo Deborah volume in care maskaro ter OPI črn lak). Sem pa (preko neta) nakupila 2 zanimiva kosa unikatnega nakita. Upam, da bo kmalu čim več sončka in da se bo s tem tudi naše počutje izboljšalo.
    Čisto razumljivo da po 3 letih zelo frekventnega pisanja postov potrebuješ malo premora in nekaj da te spet navdihne. Želim ti da čimprej najdeš veselje in navdih za ustvarjanje.

  9. O ja, sem opazila, da je manj tvojih prispevkov, ker jih pogrešam. :ahug: Si pa predstavljam, da je treba napolnit baterije, sploh če si tako izredno pridna blogerka kot si. Tako da kar počivaj, kolikor bo potrebno, da dobiš nazaj veselje do pisanja. :yes:
    Ooo, a ima mačkon zelene očke? Tako je tam pri akvariju videti. :wub: Sicer pa šment za slabe senčke. Mene vedno v slabo voljo spravi, če zgrešim nakup. Catrice vsaj draga ni, tako da ni bilo veliko dinarčkov zapravljenih.

    Moj teden je bil sicer precej naporen. Ena izjemno slaba novica in ena malo manj slaba novica. Uradno imam sicer počitnice, ampak občutek počitnic vsekakor ni prisoten. Možgane zaposljujem s prijatelji, z glasbo in make upom, kot običajno. Naročila sem paketek (Beauty UK orientiran, s kancem Konada) in ustvarila nov look, v katerega sem popolnoma zaljubljena. :amail: Zadnje čase mi pašejo čisto odbite divje barve na očeh. Če bi se dalo, bi verjetno neonke nosila, pa jih sicer na nohtih sploh ne maram. :cute:

  10. I am glad that you wrote about that eye-shadows duo because I was planning on buying it as soon as the sales arrived. Now I know I won’t! How much have you paid the OPIs on sale? Love the nude one!
    Hope that Poli is recovering fast!

  11. Hello Beautiful :)
    I’m sending my love to Poli, I hope everything will heal quickly.
    I understand the temporary loss of intrest in writing/taking photos and stuff. I think it’s OK to take a break and just do whatever You feel.
    Greetings!

  12. Vsak si mora kdaj pa kdaj spet napolnit baterije… :ahug:

    Mačkon pa je pravi srček :wub:

  13. Upam da se boš kmalu spet veselila pisanja :) Sicer malo pavze paše, tako da pavziraj dokler ne boš popolnoma ready :D
    Mačkon je super lep, upam da bo kmalu zdrav :P
    In nakupe zgledajo dokaj obetavni, predvsem zaradi znižanja! :D Kje si pa jih dobila?
    No, jaz sem pa danes v Coinu v Trstu dobila stalažo kolekcije Crystalliced, in uspela kupi vse kar sem želela, yay. :) Upam da bo tudi pri nas kmalu prispela, če ni že med mojo odsotnostjo.

  14. Lakci so mi všeč, MU tudi, ampak Poli, ki v preži opazuje dogajanje v akvariju – neprecenljivo. :haha:
    Ti si kar v miru napolni baterije. :ahug:

  15. Nekako razumem kaj hočeš povedati, ko si rekla, da rabiš voljo za pisanje. Upam, da bo hitro minilo.
    Tvoj muc mi je zelo všeč. Tak srček je z tem “satelitom” Tudi moj se je enkrat stepel in dobil grde rane. Tako da ga je bilo potrebno peljati veterinarju. Kasneje smo ga tudi sterilizirali in od takrta ni več problemov z ženitvijo. Raje sedi na radjatorju in opazuje skozi okno.

    Zelo všeč so mi tvoji novi nakupi. Zanima pa me kje si dobila OPI DS-je?

  16. Popolnoma te razumem, vsakem se kdaj zgodi da nima več volje početi nekaj kar ga je prej veselilo. Bo že boljše! Mačkon je pa ful cute upam da se bo hitro pozdravil!! :akitty: Lakci sta lepi še posebej DS Illuminate, tvoj make up pa kot vedno prelep!

  17. OPI-ji so znižani? Prosim reci, da v Müllerjih! :stars: Mene letos razprodaje še niso videle, mogoče bom pa v soboto pri volji pa grem malo pogledat. Še najbolj me mika Lush, če jim je še kaj ostalo, hehe.
    Luškan je tale Poli. Ko vsaj jaz ne bi delila doma z alergičnimi na muce. :cry:

  18. Ma ne se sekirat, če nimaš neke velike volje postat. Mislim, da imamo vsi taka obdobja, ko smo nekako otopeli in itak prej al slej mine :) :ahug:
    Tudi naš mačkon nam dela skrbi, zdaj ko se ženi. Par ur nazaj je lepo šel in označil polico s knjigami. Dobro, da smo prej vidli, kot zavohali :smell: Konkretno stepel, pa se še ni (potrkam!). Držim pesti, da se Poli ne bo več tako hudo stepel :3
    Tudi jaz sem malo nakupovala prejšni teden. Privoščila sem si Catrice vijoličen smokey četvorček, bronast liner in laka Am I blue or green in Plum play with me. Dvojčki senčil pa me nekako niso prepričali. Že tako nerada kupujem senčila, ker vem, da jih ne bom uporabila (oz. max enkrat).
