NOTD: some Rainbow Connection right here!

Hi my adorable readers! =) I thought I'd share these nails I had a month ago in the Caribbean cruise. I had had this manicure for one day already, without a top coat, so some places might be chipped and the cuticle area is so messy! Sorry about that, I was on vacation!! xD
But yeah, the shade here is OPI's Rainbow Connection from the new Muppet Collection. 16,90€ in Finland  (19 dollars) and 8 dollars in USA! What a steal! I'm so glad I was able to find this polish there so I didn't have to splurge here!
I have two coats of the Rainbow connection, and once coat of Gray's Anatomy from WetnWild under it =)
And the ring is from Guess! I bought it from the ship and it was SO cheap, just 18 dollars! Guess is a high end bran in Finland, that'd propably be at least 80 euros here!

Well, have a happy rest of the week!

The most beautiful brush set!

Hi my lovely readers!
First of all- I'm sorry if this blog post comes off as an advertisement. It is NOT meant to be one, but I sincerely just was so amazed by the beauty of this brush set, that I just had to feature it in my blog! :o

So, what am I talking about? This:

AHH!! Isn't is just so pretty? :))
I absolutely looove this set! It's obviously from Sigma,  and it's from their new, limited edition The Cities collection!  This brown & Gold one is called London. 
This of course has to be the most expensive of the sets xD Why does this always happen to me? Always I fall in love with the things I can't afford. Well, I could ask this for xmas present, but I'm pretty much done with my list, which includes DKNY Goldem Delicious perfume and couple of other things :(
This set runs for 89 dollars, which I could easily see spending on a brush set, if I din't have as many brushes as  I already have (well, like 20).
But yeah, just wanted to give you guys heads up, in case you are looking for your first brush set, now it is good time to strike with these limited edition ones- so cute and a perfect gift! =)

These are the other sets featured in this collection:
Paris - New York - Tokyo
(these sets run for only 59 dollars!)

Super cute <3

Sweet dreams by Too Faced palette review!

Hi loves! :)
Today I'll share my opinions on the newest palette from Too Faced, called  Sweet Dreams. 
If you're in a hurry, here's all you need to know: I LOVE IT!!! : D
And if you actually want some details and more info, please keep reading! ;)

Packaging: 9/10 
- I love the packaging SO much! <3 Ahh, this is like perfect packaging! I when I walked into Sephora, I saw this on the Too Faced stand and run straight to there! I'd have given 10 points for the desing, but the material (cardboard) makes the points 9. The edge's of the package get damaged quite easily. But otherwise love it! :D
The price/quality: 10/10
- The actual product price would be 220 dollars, if you bought them all separated. How amazing deal is this? I can no advice you to pass on this one! If you have ever wanted to try out Too Faced Shadowinsurance, Chocolate Soleil Bronzer (matte), or Candellight highlighter, go get the palette, right now. Stop reading this and run to Sephora! xD Or order it online! Seriously, the quality of the eyeshadows is amazing, and you'll also get to try two blushes from Too Faced, and those famous primer, bronzer and highlighter.
This is also great palette for beginners: This has so many things, you only need foundation and mascara (+eyeliner if you don't want to use eyeshadow), and this'd be a good kit for beginners :) 
A variety from neutrals to bolder colors (amazing quality btw) makes this a perfect palette for more experienced makeup addicts as well! 
So, would I recommend this: YES.
Would I buy this again if someone stole mine or something like that: Absolutely! :)

Pictures from my vacation! =)

Hi loves! :) I'm back! It has been a week since my vacation in Miami ended. It was so much fun! 10 days of paradise, 7 of those spent on a Caribbean Cruise!
We were on the Carnival Liberty ship, and it was amazing! :)
The ship  was so pretty, the shows were magical, the food delicious and the staff very friendly! I also loved the decoration in the ship, and it was very clean, btw.
So the only thing that bothered me, was that there could have been more shops! ;P
Still, I totally spent more than enough money -__-''
I promise I'll make a haul video soon, I have been SO busy with school, since I have missed a week of it... And I also got a new camera! It is amazing, can't wait to film youtube videos again! It has been such a long break! D;
The places I saw:
Cozumel, Mexico (the best one, in my opinion)
Ocho Rios, Jamaica (very nice place)
and Grand Turk, Turk and Caicos, Bahama islands (I wish I had Essie's turqoise and caicos nail polish ;) paradise beach, but I stepped on a sea shell so I coudn't sprnd too much time there xD)

So I absolutely enjoyed my vacation. I could do it all again! And I'll def go back to Carnival Liberty! =)

Duhh, cold Finland ;o And getting even colder and colder all the time... Expecting the first snow very soon! +8°C
