Happy Easter! Srecan Vaskrs!

Hello, lovelies!!!

I know I've gone AWOL completely, but I'll try to be back more often soon!

In the meantime, I just wanted to wish you all a very happy Easter! This year Catholic and Orthodox Easter fall on the same date, so I hope all of you have an absolutely wonderful day :)

This year is no exception for me, so it's painted eggs and delicious food all round :)

Let me know what you are getting up to!!!

Take care and have fun!

H&M is Coming to Oz!

So, my lovelies, as you already know (well, you probably do), H&M is coming to Melbourne's GPO! It's all happening on 5th of April at 10:00am, so save the date and get excited!!!

The Swedish store will occupy three floors and almost 500m2 in Melbourne's GPO. H&M will be a full concept store, featuring women's, men's and kids' fashion, as well as their home collection. And just because that's simply not enough, they will also include some guest-designer collaborations including Karl Lagerfeld, Madonna, Kylie, Stella etc.

I don't know about you, but I am super duper excited! I'm not gonna lie. I wasn't. I expected the prices to be out of this world. I mean, it will be located in GPO after all. But other night, I had a look on their website and the Australian prices aren't too bad. At all!

Look! This blouse is $27.95

Jeans are anywhere between $27.95 and $59.95 and they look great. Hopefully some of them will be a good fit (I am forever looking for good looking jeans!)


This double breasted coat is $59.95 - if the quality is good, this is such a great deal!

And same with this jacket ($39.95):

There's also lots of great stuff for men and kids, and for your home!!! 

So I don't know how the quality is (I'm hoping good), but I am looking forward to having a new brand in Melbourne, especially at normal prices!

What about you? Have you heard of H&M before? Do you have any of their pieces? And most importantly, will you be at Melbourne's GPO on 5th of April?

Hi lovelies,

Just a quick post to let you know that Priceline is having yet another amazing sale on all cosmetics (includes nail polishes)! 40% off all cosmetics sale online and in store will start tomorrow morning (11th March 2014) and end on Wednesday night (12th March 2014).

As always, I'd buy absolutely everything, but if you want to behave, may I suggest some Essie nailpolishes, Face of Australia Lasting Looks Lip Creme I used in this post or some Maybelline Color Whispers or anything else you wish to buy, really!

Now would be the good time to splurge on something you usually find too expensive! With 40% discount, it's going to be oh-so-worth-it, my loves!

So tell me, what will you buy? Me?! I haven't made up my mind yet, but will definitely get L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Powder :)

Keep smiling!

A Valentine's Day Makeup Look

So my lovelies, one of my favourite store sent me a message that "Somebody loves me"!!!

So I got a few Models Prefer products and a $50 Priceline card to buy a few goodies and create a Valentine's Day makeup look. Exciting! Thank you, Priceline! I feel very very spoiled and grateful!

So I was thinking and thinking and thinking and I decided to buy this:

I bought Eylure False Lashes ($9.99), Models Prefer Infinite Colour Shadow Pencil in Oh Fudge! ($9.99), Face of Australia Lasting Looks Lip Creme in Love Berry ($10.95) and Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream ($15.95).

I don't know what you get up to on Valentine's Day, but I would say that if you are coupled up, there would probably be a bit of smooching going on, and your lipstick might be gone quite quickly. So for that very reason, I thought, why not do something fun with the eyes instead and keep lips simple (or simpl-ish).

I don't wear false lashes, so I wasn't very sure how this was going to turn out and how messy it would be, so I decided to go with the Eylure pair simply because they had self-adhesive, rather than me having to apply it. Then I smudged a bit of Oh Fudge! over my lids and then some FoA Lasting Lip Creme on my lips with a light swipe of Models Prefer Amore on top of it.

I obviously used BB cream on my face and I also used the Brow Pencil provided to fill in my brows.

And this is what I came up with:

And that's me trying to blow a kiss to you all. The world's worst selfies taker ever! :P

But other than that, I do love the look, and oh-my have I been missing out?! Love the false lashes! LOVE!

So whatever it is that you get up to on Valentine's Day with your other half, remember, be with someone who will ruin your lipstick and not your mascara. And also make sure that your nails are looking pretty! You know, just in case :)

Whatever you do, have fun and remember, you are with your other half on all other days too, so show them that you love them every single day! And now a shallow question - what sort of makeup look will you go for this Valentine's Day?

And why not doll up even if you are single or not celebrating Valentine's with your other half?! Nothing wrong with that!

Love love,

Ms Jelena xx
