Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


This is my new TNMT sweater and I love it soooo much. I wore it today to work and got so many compliments about it that I decided to post a picture of my ootd on instagram.
And here is another picture of me wearing it.


I hope you have a nice weekend. I have a party ahead on Saturday. My mom and dad have their 40th anniversary. I hope that in the future me and my boyfriend are going to have the same anniversary.

Thank you for your time,
Eve all of you!

Wreck This Journal


I bought this journal today. Maybe you've seen it before. I saw Bunny rave about it in her video on YouTube. She said it was fun to do and she wanted to share her thoughts and show her results. She made me all excite about it and so I went immediately to my nearest bookshop to buy it. Sadly they didn't have the English version so I will translate the sentences for you guys.


For example let me show you this page. It says: Fill this page with circles. So you can simply fill it in with circles. But you can go a little further and more outside the box with this one. Maybe you have a lot of elastic bands to glue to it or maybe your cup of coffee is leaking and you could stamp it on the page. You can go as crazy as you like. I find it surprisingly very comforting to finally step out of the neatfreak-fase that I've always had when it comes to stationary things. I want to make this a ongoing progress and I will show some pages when I'm done.

Thank you for your time,
Eve all of you!

If you are just as excite as I am and you would like to buy it.
Go Here!

Bodyshop body butters


Hi there! I just want to share my love for The Bodyshop Body butters with you. They are so creamy and moisturizing and one of the best things about it is that they smell like heaven.
Although there are some of them that I don't like. I've gotten the olive oil one in my beauty box and I don't like to smell like an olive garden or a kitchen so I use it for my ankles and feet ha ha.

 

A few weeks back I bought the Cranberry Joy and the Raspberry body butter. They were on clearance and that's always nice. The Cranberry Joy smells just like cranberry's which is very nice to not smell like chemicals for one time and the Raspberry one smells like Raspberry yogurt drink.
You can get hungry when you smell it. ha ha.


The shimmer lotion is one of my favorites this time of the year. I use it when I have a top or a t-shirt on and rub it on to my arms for a nice sparkling effect. You don't have to take much of it because the glitter ratio is extremely high. Use sparely if you don't want to look like a discobal.


I can't wait to get more of these pampering goods. I feel girly and good for taking care of my skin when I use these type of products. If you want to read more or you want to shop go to http://thebodyshop.com

Thank you for your time,
Eve  all of you!

Stretching update 6mm/2g

Today I stretched my ears to a bigger size. I went from 5 to 6mm (4 to 2g) and boy, did it hurt. Well the actual part of pushing the taper in didn't hurt that bad, but i couldn't get the plugs in. I tried like 8 times or so and at the point i thought well let's put some tape around it, my ears were as red as Rudolph's nose.
Sadly I have only one taper so i couldn't left the tapers in. Just bite your teeth and push it through.
I've filmed it so if you want to see me in excruciating pain ;) click play.



Thank you for your time,
Eve  all of you!

P.S.
Here is my instagram photo i took right after I got the plugs in. Look how red my ear is! ha ha.

Dreadlock update #3

Hey guys!
So it's the 17th of January, time for my dreadlock update. 3 months has passed since I've started my dreadjourney. They have given me some good times and bad ha ha. Sooo itchy! But now I'm getting used to the feeling. Though they are a little bit frizzy, I like them a lot.


Last time I told you that i combed them half out. I was hoping that they would lock up by them selves the last month, but sadly they didn't. So this morning I braided them for fun, I'm kinda liking it this way too. A loose braid so they can still move around if they want to. Funny that I think of them as my babies ha ha. I'm thinking of naming them George and Fred because they are doing what they like. Lumps and bumps oh my, but I don't want to crochet-hook them. I believe locking up is a natural progress and crochet-hook and wax etc. won't help but restrain them. Offcourse I'm no expert in the dreadlockworld, so if you want to do it different, do it.


Here are some close ups.


I want them to be like rope but I think I'll have to wait 9 more months when they mature. Maybe I'll have a full head of dreads by then!
If you are new to dreads and you want good advice go to http://www.lazydreads.com/
Chris makes a lot of Q&A videos, that are really helpful.

Thank you for your time,
Eve heartss all of you!

Wishlist

I'm so broke at the moment.
We bought a new car and some other stuff I didn't need. Money flew right out my purse ha ha. You know it doesn't help either that I got my December money a week earlier. All gone now... And I want to buy so much ha ha... Anyway don't get me wrong I'm happy with the things I have and am grateful for the love I receive from my friends and family. Truly blessed with the best...
But sometimes you have the urge to spend some money or actually..
A Lot.




Most likely I don't even going to get the half of it, but this were some things going round in my head. I think the rocking chair is really cool but I don't have the room nor a baby for it ha ha so I will probably going to get it in a few years. I really need  that toothbrush though, my other ones charger deceased.

M.A.C. lipstick speaks for itself, but this particular color is just like a unicorn putting a rainbow over your lips and then a kisses it with stardust. But if I can't get the M.A.C. one I just take the Revlon ones. Want to try those out also.One of my new years resolutions is to eat more veggies. So I want to buy a blender that makes it easier to take in. Definitely want to try some kale smoothies.
The Pokémon shirt is just awesome, I played the game a lot on my Gameboy back in the days. I had the blue one and my friend the red so we could catch them all. At a certain point I had to stop cause I didn't do any homework anymore. However, I knew the Pokérap completely, funny hmm?

So that concludes my wishlist.
What do you guys want to have really badly?

Let me know! Leave a comment down below.
Thank you for your time,
I really appreciate it
Eve heartss all of you!

Review Silk'n Sonic Clean Plus


A few months back I bought the Silk'n Sonic Clean Plus to improve the condition of my skin. Due to my change of birth control I started breaking out around my mouth and on my chin. I just wanted a little helper to make my skin extra clean for the nights. So the great expedition in Clarisonic-world began. I started searching on google and youtube and one of the first cons emerged. A Clarisonic is quite expensive for just a little helper and searched for a cheaper version. I came across a site where they sell electronic devices and saw a interesting dupe. The Silk'n Sonic Clean Plus caught my eye. I then you-tubed it and had to listen in french which was not my best class back in high school, but I catched her drift. I liked what I saw and bought it!

The Sonic Clean Plus in its holder

Device without brush

New vs. 2 months old brush
I love it so much! My skin glows and feels super clean but there are some pros and cons I would like to mention. Just some help to make a good decision whether you should buy a Clarisonic or dupe like this.

Pros
  • Does a great job in cleaning ones face
  • The battery lasts a long time
  • 4 settings (slow, fast, pulsation slow and pulsation fast)
  • Showerproof

Cons

  • You have only one type of brushes
  • You have to close your eyes when you do you nosearea
  • You can't use it under water, so no long baths

Device with brush, turned on

Device with brush, turned on

Every 2 months or depending on how much you use this miracle worker you should replace your brush. You can buy them easily at their webshop.

Refill brush package


Would I buy this again? Yes.

The Silk´n Sonic Clean Plus retails for €79,95 Refills for €5,95

Stretching update 2 months



Sooo this is what my earlobes look like. The gauges are 2 months old and 5 mm (which should be approx. a size 4g) big. I can go to a bigger size on the 20th of January because at that point they should be healed by then. When I started stretching my ears at the first time, they did hurt a bit. Now when I put in a bigger size it just stings a little for an hour or two. I started with a 2,4mm (which should be approx. a size 10g) taper and just left it in for the whole month, maybe not how to do it right but it worked for me.
 
Maybe you think that a size 10 is big for beginners but in my case I was pierced with a piercinggun on my 5th, so my ears were a lot bigger by the years of wearing lots and lots of earrings. I kinda like the process of gauging my earlobes. I think it's interesting to see them grow. I can see through them now :-) I use Argan oil after almost every shower to moisturize my skin and to heal my skin faster. I notice that it helps them gain their flexibility back. And if you want to know my goal size is 10mm (00g)
 
Thanks for your time,
take care & stay tuned!

Mac lipstick - Please Me


Here's a picture of what I got for Christmas
It's a M.A.C lipstick in the shade Please Me. I love to collect the Matte shades of M.A.C lipsticks. The texture is simply amazing, feels like you have nothing on you're lips. I like that.
Nevertheless is this shade surprisingly creamy for a Matte. Maybe I'll try the Retro Matte shades next time. Which one should I try?



Here are some swatches



And also I took some photo's of my lips



     

What's your favourite M.A.C lipstick?

I hope you had a great Christmas and New Years Eve. I still have my Christmas tree, I should get rid of it next Saturday, cause it's hanging down a bit. Time to think about some spring décor things to buy. I think I go for pink and floral. I know it Ha Ha floral for spring how inspiring, but I like it. Hmm or pastel chevron, quite like it either, maybe I'll combine the two. We'll have to find out what that looks like.

Thanks for your time,
take care & stay tuned!

Dreadlock update 2 months

So these two babies are my dreads. This picture was taken on the 17th of December 2013.
At that point they were 2 months old and going crazy as you can see. Ha Ha!
I was scared if they were not turning out the I wanted to be, so I combed them out half.
Now the craziness is gone. I wil post a picture of how they look monthly.


I used the twist and rip method. I know when they mature they shrink but i didn't think they
would turn out the way I wanted to. Maybe I'll use the backcomb-crochet method on new
dreads in the future.
