China Glaze - Riveting Swatch

Oh my, oh my .. this is such a lovely nail polish. It's called Riveting and it's from China Glaze latest collection: Capitol Colours. It's an orange nail polish with yellow glitters, quite a striking color as you can see in the pictures. It has a lovely shiny finish. I'm in love with the formula and the brush of this nail polish ^^. It dried within a minute and it's not streaky at all and surprisingly, I only needed 1 coat, just 1 coat o.o! And the best part, it only started to chip after 5 days! This collection will be in stores from the beginning of March. What do you think of this nail polish?

Paris Trip Part 2 : Sightseeing, City Centre

This is part 2 (the last part) of my Paris trip. I was in Paris for 2 days: on the first day I went to the Kpop Music Bank concert and on the second day I went sightseeing.

Everything looks so pretty & chic! In this blogpost I'm going to show you some pictures that I took during my trip (BEWARE, picture heavy). Have you been to Paris before?

Paris Trip Part 1 : Music Bank Kpop Concert in Paris

Together with my sister I went to Paris to see the Music Bank Concert ^___^. I really wanted to go to this concert, since there were a lot of Kpop groups who were coming: 2PM, Girls Generation (SNSD), Shinee, Sistar, U-kiss, T-ara, Beast and 4minute!! I was extremely excited because it was my first time going to a Korean concert \^o^/. Well, How was it? It was AWE-SOME! Of course, I took some pictures and videos xD hehehe... I will show everything in this blogpost ;). I had to take my compact camera with me since a pro camera wasn't allowed. Which means that the quality of the pictures aren't that great >.< the camera which I had with me didn't have a great zoom :(.

MUJI Lotion/ Toner Dispensers

While I was at the MUJI store in Hong Kong, I bought a few dispensers. These really caught my eye, because I haven't seen these kind of dispensers in The Netherlands. These are suitable for liquid-y things, like toners and lotion. I went to Paris for 2 days a few weeks ago and I brought this with me. I was so happy that I brought this with me o.o. I can't live without my Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion now-a-days and I didn't want to bring the whole bottle with me because it's heavy. Therefore I had put a bit of the lotion into the MUJI travel container.

Korean Make up Gurus on Youtube Part 1

I have been following many Korean Make Up Gurus on Youtube. I first didn't know that there were so many Korean girls who are making make up videos on Youtube! One of the first ones that I've been following are Catalina aka CL2425 and ElisaSung. I'm sure you've heard of these names before, but do you know any other Korean make up gurus? Let me share a few channels which I've been following for a while now:

I recently wrote part 2 of this blogpost, check it out here: http://www.memorable-days.net/2013/03/korean-make-up-gurus-on-youtube-part-2.html

1. Beautifymeeh
She is called Angel and is one of my favorites out of the Korean Youtubers. She was born in the US but her parents are Korean. Her videos are of amazing quality: good swatches, great lighting, good focus on the products and she talks clearly. She often shows Korean & Japanese products in her videos which attracts me the most.

Cute brown bow shoes from VIVI store in Hong Kong

While I was in Hong Kong I purchased a lot of shoes and this pair was one of them. These are called the cute brown bow shoes and I bought it a store called Vivi at NewTownMall in Mongkok, Hong Kong. It's not the official Vivi store, they just named their store Vivi lol. Quite smart though, since the Vivi magazine is extremely popular nowadays and most of their shoes that they are selling are inspired by the shoes which are shown in the Vivi magazines.

My thoughts & experiences about LUUUX.com

Can you still remember this blogpost: "Earn money with your blogposts!" which I posted last year? Yeah that blogpost was about LUUUX.com. A website that has grown within two years! It's a website where you earn points every time you add a post, comment or rate a content. The better the community says your content is, the more Luuux money you earn. The more Luuux money you have, the more things you can buy. That's right, you can exchange the points to get awesome products like a Michael kors watch, an ipod, ipad, or even a LV bag. I was active on that website (I spend 3 hours per day) when I first discovered it, mainly to check if this website wasn't a scam and I secretly wanted to have the Sigma brush set that I could get if I had enough points. Note: this is NOT an advertorial. In this blogpost I'm going to share my thoughts and experiences about this website. I FINALLY had the chance to make an order there, but the product wasn't the one I wished for =[ *sigh ..
