Ever since I can remember myself, I have always been fascinated with jewelry. It just holds some special place in my heart. Especially when I was a child, I just couldn't stop admiring that colorful bracelet my mom gave me, or those long necklaces that gran kept in her closet. It all seemed somehow magical to me. And to this day I still admire jewelry just as much, and I could probably call it my guilty pleasure because I tend to splurge on it the most! Throughout the years I obtained quite a collection of jewelry, but my world has changed when I discovered Les Néréides - designers of luxury costume jewelry. I have to say - if my personality could be described by jewelry, that would be Les Néréides... It's something I have never seen before yet something that feels so familiar and close to my heart. Just look how detailed and delicate these magical pieces are. Champêtre collection inspired from the romanticism and poetry of David Hamilton's photos that reveals nature in its simplicity, delicacy and purity...

Coral is probably my favorite color when it comes to makeup products, well at least in the spring and summer. I'm rebuilding my makeup stash for the warmer days and I've added some more new Clinique goodies in there! Let's start with the Blushing Blush Powder Blush in shade Precious Posy. The color is absolutely stunning - it's bright coral with fine golden shimmer and it's just one of the prettiest blushes I have ever seen. It's bright, very pigmented, illuminating and just makes the cheeks glow! Usually I only go for matte blushers, but after trying this... not anymore! I also got a coral shimmery gloss - Long Last Glosswear with SPF 15 in shade Cabana Crush. The color is also really pretty and summery and I love how long it stays on the lips. Along with the blush and lipgloss I got High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara in Extreme black. I have short and thin eyelashes so I don't expect wonders from any mascara, but I like it to be very black, because I feel like some mascaras aren't just black enough.. Does that makes sense? Anyways, it's true what it says on the packaging - it really is extreme black and I love that. It also gives great volume and length. I love me some great products like these, and I love it even more when the packaging is so gorgeous! It's so chic and sleek, isn't it?

I have always been a fan of NYX cosmetics. I love that their products are affordable, good quality and I love their range of colors! I'm still obsessed with NYX soft matte lip creams that I have talked about a year ago, I use them almost every day. But here I've got something new!
NYX Love in Paris eyeshadow pallete in Parisian Chic - the palette contains 4 matte and 5 shimmery neutral shades perfect for everyday wear from day to night. The colors look very very natural and flattering. Matte shades are my favorite - probably because they are quite similar to the Urban Decay naked basics palette which is my go-to everyday palette.
NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream - I have to say that I was never a big fan of lip glosses or lipsticks that aren't matte. Mainly because I am always terrified that I will lick it off my lips! But I can say goodbye to my fear because NYX butter gloss doesn't lick off! How cool is that? I have no idea how they did it, but it stays in place and provides the gorgeous vibrant and opaque color. Love it!
All in all, my all time favorite makeup look is neutral eyes and peachy lips. And these products gave me what I like the most! NYX is available online at Nelly.com, Eleven.se, Coverbrands.no, NordicFeel.se, Beautyplanet.se, Parelle.se etc.

DOLCE BY DOLCE AND GABBANA available at Fragrance Direct
Ever since I first saw the Dolce perfume campaign and the print ad backstage video, I knew I will want and love this new perfume. Maybe it's the magically beautiful and professional producers, Domenico and Stefano work or the pure beauty of Kate King but it was enough for me to see those videos to fell in love with it immediately. Good job I'd say! But really, I couldn't wait to get this gorgeous bottle into my hands. From the first sniff I realized it's really similar to what I have imagined. It's a pure, light, young, white flower scent, and it really does smell like spring.
Dolce contains top notes of papaya flower and neroli, middle notes of amaryllis, narcissus and water lily, base notes of musk and cashmeran.
If you like light floral scents you must give it a try! Oh and the bottle is a real beauty too, isn't it? I couldn't help but take some pictures wearing this Chicwish dress as I felt it complimented the perfume perfectly and seemed similar to what Kate King wore for the ad, now I'm just obsessed with her!
