This week I'm back to Ljubljana, as I have some more exams to pass (but I'm so not in the mood). This means (as you probably noticed) less posts this week. But don't worry I'm taking pictures of my hauls, NOTDs and outfits.
So expect a boom of posts in the weekend :P
Anyway here are my ins and outs of the past (and this) week.
+ spending more time with my boy
+ a new telephone
+ cleaned up appartment
+ being on my own in LJ
+ Aladdin bottle (love it!)
+ Fleurcup menstral cup (very ecological and no more allergies)
- autumn has started (12 to 15 degrees)
- it's cold and I can't wear shorts/t-shirts/skirts/sandals/dresses anymore :'(
Girls what are your ins and outs this week?

Lately I received 2 blog awards! Thank you girls!
The first one is "One Little Sparkling Blog" from Ana na S. Thank you :*
Answer one question: "What do you like the most about your own blog?"
You have to pass award to others.
I really like about my own blog, how it has grown over the past year, its organization and (hopefully) diverse content. But the most important thing I like is you, my readers! Without you, it wouldn't be so much fun to write it! <3
I got the second blog award from Addicted to Konad! Thank you :*

Today I'll show you the swatches of my latest lipstick haul. I got some CCUK lipsticks (drugstore brand from UK) and another Wet n Wild lipstick as I loved my previous ones!
Let's start with my bare lips.
CCUK Coral Silk (207). They come in pearlescent or creme finish. Personally I prefer cremes as they are more pigmented. But this one, even though it's pearlescent, is quite pigmented.
Next here is CCUK Hot Pink (203), a nice creme.
CCUK Sunset (229) that is a really pigmented pearlescent lipstick.
I really like them :) But the smell reminds me of old lipsticks (I remember that when I was little all lipsticks smelled like this). Some people like this smell, but I don't.
And at last Wet n Wild 27. This one is a gorgeous creme as well!
Now I can't wait for my Fyrinnae Melancholy and Hair Dye to arrive!
Because a woman can't have enough lipsticks (and shoes, and makeup, and clothes ... ;))

I have everything prepared for my next giveaway. Most of you voted "mix of everything above", so you'll find nail polishes, nail art items, makeup, fake nails, lashes, earrings, headband, brooches ...
But now I have a question for you:
22:02:00 | Posted by Helena Milost | | Edit Post
This morning it was cloudy and somewhat chilly, so I put on my new jeans and a cardigan. When I arrived at the bus station the sun came out and it was hot again! So I had to change again ... (no pics :/). I just put on my navy shorts and removed the cardigan. Gosh, this weather! Sometimes I just don't know what to wear because of it!
Wearing: H&M shirt, jeans, cardigan, necklace
P.S. Tomorrow I will post the lipstick swatches! Can you tell there is a new obsession?

I got myself a few things in the past month or so.
First some clothes and shoes <3
I got some basics and my long searched pencil skirt! Actually 2!
All things were on sale! Yay for sales! :D
Then some jewelery.
A primer (this one is awesome!) Thank you lana for this (she added all those samples)!
See the difference:
On the left is Fyrinnae's Mephisto and on the right is Zosimos Botanicals' Avocado.
And at last some makeup stuff (most of it are for my upcoming giveaway).
Now it's really enough for a couple of months :P

My latest outfits (I had other things to write about, so I just collected them here).
Day 3 (it was raining, and I do realize the pictures are not sharp :P but it will give you an idea)
Have a nice day! :)

I will update you with my latest photography.
I photographed Anita last week and Mojca yesterday.
Enjoy the pictures.
Anita. To see more go HERE
Mojca (she was a water fairy)
I just love photography! :D

As promised here are the swatches of my latest S-he lipsticks.
S-he 326 is more moisturizing and less pigmented, while 458 is more pigmented, but still not drying.
I always wanted a purple lipstick and lately, orange has been my obsession :P
Surprisingly, the purple one is very wearable :)
This one is not completely orange, as it's hard to get an orange lipstick in the drugstore, so it's more orange with a strong red undertone.
I love both of them!
Now I just need a real orange lipstick!
Which one is your favourite?
21:33:00 | Posted by Helena Milost | | Edit Post
My latest hauls:
I love love love shoes :) Especially high heels, but I can't walk long distances in those, so wedges are a perfect solution.
Thank you Biba for the two upper polishes! I will post the lipstick swatches tomorrow :)

Oh my! Now I have 501 followers!
Thank you all who follow me *hugs*
To thank you all, I will have another giveaway :)
Right now I'm thinking what to include in the prize and if there should be more winners?
Please answer the poll.

Today I will show you how to do a cheetah manicure. It's really easy and fast.
You'll need 3 colors: one basic color for the whole nails, another for the dots and a third one for contouring.
1. Start with a base color. For this nail art, I've chosen Essie Flirty Fuchsia.
2. Take the second color and start making random oval(-ish) dots. The more random and not-perfect dots, the more natural effect.
3. Take the third color. A nail art pen or brush will be really helpful in this step.
4. Start contouring the dots. Do a half or 3/4 or a broken circle.
See? It looks far from perfection.
5. Continue with all dots.
Finish off with a clear top coat. And ta-da! It's done :)
Hope this was helpful to some of you :)
