After few months of following on social media I finally subscribed to one of the most popular beauty boxes in the UK – Birchbox.
Most important, I liked the idea of getting and trying new skincare and makeup products from different brands, including well-known names like Rituals… and Lumene, and not spending long hours in Boots while selecting essentials – I literally spend an hour once selecting a sun cream! Also, since I moved to London and throw away a lot of my cosmetics, I needed an update to my makeup bag.
As Birchbox quite often has pretty good offers for new subscribers, I used a promo code to receive a July box plus a surprise mystery box from previous months. So I got two beauty boxes with 10 new products for only £12.95!
THE ROYAL WEDDING!
While the world is watching you cannot miss an opportunity to celebrate it in style. Your perfect wedding outlook should be meticulously planned. For me it’s not about being dressy and classy, but also about finding a middle between individual and trendy. Thus, I am going for a snow white Любовь (Love) shirt with cloud grey tulle skirt and classic Chanel crossbody bag as an addition. #teammegan all prepared!
Of course, your look isn’t finished without makeup. Play with nude shadows, eyeliner, and soft strawberry daiquiri color or go for smoky eyes, red lipstick, and blush – don’t be afraid to apply a little bit more than usual, as the day ahead would be very long! And, of course, don’t forget about your favorite perfume 😉
Now be ready for a long day of fun and celebration of love! Shine bright like a diamond on Meghan’s ring. However, even if you are the best wedding guest one can ever wish about, don’t forget about the most important people at the ceremony – the bride and the groom. Treat them with care and respect – you should remember that it’s probably the best day of their life, while on the same time being extremely stressful.
Additional requirements: commemorative mug for the afternoon tea (Earl Grey with milk), biscuits, scones or Victoria sponge, a glass of prosecco, Union Jack flag, TV and/or Internet broadband.
Sending out love and all best wishes to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the wedding day!
P.S. I am all prepared to catch the wedding bouquet from Hackney…
London, 19 May 2018.
Throwback to the day when Pauline made beauty🍂
Finally received photographs from Ju&Max Wedding ❤
As I already had a blog post about this lovely day, I decided to dedicate this mainly photographic post to my look for the wedding. In a nutshell, the idea was to create the look close to my ideal bride’s appearance. You know, I’m not an ordinary girl and I need everything to be creative, original and stylish as much as possible 😀 I will not share my dream dress here – who knows, maybe my future husband is reading this blog entry right now, but it’s a bad luck for a groom to see the wedding dress before the Big day 😀
So, let me present you Nirika the bridesmaid:
Hello, autumn! Nice to see you again 🙂
Why not to remember this summer highlights while sitting with a cup of tea at my summer cottage? So, these are…
- Meeting Red Hot Chili Peppers
- My best friend’s wedding
- Graduation and Master’s Degree
- The birth of Nicole N.
- Trip to Helsinki
- Photography and retouching work (this could be my “August thing”)
- Work at Riga TechGirls
- Finding the perfect black satin top 😀
- Modeling for makeups and portraits
- “The Thirteenth Tale” by Diane Setterfield
And what about you? 🙂
By the way, this is my first September since 2000 when I do not need to go to school or university or any courses!! Still cannot believe it 😀
To celebrate this – a photograph from my very first day of school with a photograph of me starting my Master studies.
May the Force be with all of you in your studies! Be brave and motivated!
This July goes as… makeup month!
Master: Catherine Lapteva
What is the most important thing in a girl’s bag? Of course, a lipstick 🙂
I must confess that I have some more red lipstick than on this pic 😀
Brands: NYX, Lush, Gosh, Kivvi, Maybelline New York, ArtDeco.
Last week I was a model for a 60s makeup and tried Twiggy’s image.
How do you like it? 🙂
