Tiffany & Co.

All Time Favorite Accessory 

There are certain things whenever you buy they immediately become a favorite. First, you wear it all the time and thee eventually they are no longer a part of your style. My all time favorite accessory is a silver bracelet from Tiffany & Co. with a heart chain suspension. What is great about this bracelet is it can easily be complimented with other accessories as well. 

This bracelet was bought four years ago and I was looking through my jewelry and found it! It made my day I had totally forgotten about it! It are the small things like these that make my day ... 

 The heart has an beautiful inscription which was the main reason I bought the bracelet in the first place. It so cute and has a clean cut style. The inscriptions say Please return to TIFFANY & Co. New York 925. 

What are some of your all time favorite accessories which you can't live without??

NailArt tutorial

Three Colored Design 
We have shared with you guys a few pics of different nail art designs but we have finally decided to do a nail art tutorial! We have decided to do a three colored design 

What you need for this design is the following: 
A nail file 
Three different shades of nail polish 
Base coat polish
Top coat polish 
Glitter powder (color is optional we used green glitter). 

Our shade choices : 
Italian Love Affair by O.P.I , #031 by Depend and #48 Black by Mavala 

Step 1.  Shape your nails with a nail file, remove cuticles, and apply base coat.

Step 2. With a nail polish of your choice, make a diagonal stripe.

Step 3. Make a triangle on the edge of your nail. There should be space between the two shades making room for another shade. 

Step 4. Fill in the gap with another shade of polish. 

Step 5. You have to be quick with the nail polish because in this final step you should take a toothpick and draw lines from the edge of the nail to the middle creating lines that go through all three lines.

 Let the polishes  dry and apply a top coat, while its still wet sprinkle some glitter powder (very little! sprinkle it as far away from your nail as possible so it does not become clumpy). Finally, apply a second coat of top coat and 


Hope you enjoyed this tutorial ! 
Let us know what you think!

Italian Love Affair by O.P.I 
Playing w/ nail polish has always been a favorite leisure activity. I recently bought nail polish by O.P.I Italian Love Affair. It is a beautiful soft pink shade. 

My cravings for leopard printed nails have been keeping me up at night HA! No not really.. but I wanted to do it with a twist. A bottom coat with a pink nuance and black dipped nail tips. The tips ended up with micro stripes =)  

Do you have any more ideas for fun nail art?

Makeup sessions

This look is a very simple look which can also be used for daytime. It's not that intense where you would feel overexposed during daytime. However, it has enough sparks to wear to night time as well so its a pretty look for any hour of the day ;) 

The products used for this peachy eye makeup look was the following 
all the eyeshadows were from MakeupStore (MUS) 
Eyeshadow dusts: Lounge
Microshadows: Bronze  
Eyeliner: Click-it (by Oriflame) 
Mascara: False Lash Telescopic (by L'Oréal Paris)

Make Up Session

Finally got around to blog about own makeup creations! 

I had an amazing makeup session with the always gorgeous Umran Can. You can follow her on Twitter @canumran. She had no specific requests so we just improvised and ended up with an amazing look for her =) 

Make up used for this look 
Base; Bare Minerals Foudnation (medium shade
& MAC Mineralize Blush (Warm Soul)
Eyes; MUS (MakeUpStore) Microshadows: 
MUS eyedust ; Hot 
Lips; MUS Lipstick Baby 

These colors really compliment the shape of her eyes and of course eye color ;)) Or what do you guys think? 


Have fun w/ your nail polish!

Express your state of mind not only through fashion, express it through all your ten fingertips ;) 

When it comes to nail art there truly are no limits! You can either just go with one color (whatever that maybe) or you could go wild and crazy with leopard printed nails! However, it does take a brave soul to walk around with pimped out nails! People always compliment DY on her nail designs but they never have the courage to do them themselves! 

Nail art does not have to be complicated and they can be straightforward and still but some excitement to your day =) 

This design is very cute and can be worn for everyday errands. The bottom coat is Pink then with a small sponge the tips were dabbed with Orange down to the middle region of the nails. The tips were decorated with a thin glitter strip which was Green glitter powder which stayed on with the help of  a clear nail polish.

Faux Gold

Faux diamonds? NEVER! Faux gold? 

Jewelry can be so much fun, so you should not always take it so seriously and feel the pressure of spending huge amounts of money on them! There is a lot of jewelry out there that look great [and expensive ;)] but does not cost that much! 

DY recently bought two pieces of jewelry that are FAKE but you have to show them love as well ;)) 

This gorgeous necklace is from H&M for just  $14.00 It's a very light necklace to wear  but does it not look heavy? a.k.a. REAL?! 

A very simple and chic designed bracelet from Bijou Brigitte for only $19.00
Hope you liked them ;)

Swedish Spring

The Swedish spring is so unpredictable! 

When people complain about  bad spring weather they usually are talking about the crazy amount of rain- well readers these people have not lived in SWEDEN! Here, the weather is so unpredictable that we are almost mid April and its snowing! 

View from the kitchen - and no its no joke its April in Sweden!
We got our hopes up and changed our wardrobe and nail colors!  As you might remember DY got some gold glitter tips now she feels like it does not go together with the WINTER that we are experiencing so she had to change her nail color to a more winter friendly tone.

Its beautiful but so frustrating that we cannot experience spring with pastels and fun colors! Obviously you could, but its feels out of place to do so when everything is covered with snow! We're going to be positive and embrace these tones on our nails for now =) it aint ugly its faboosh!

Are we crazy or do you feel us when it comes to fashion (and anything to do with color) it is definitely weather influenced?
