Outfit Of The Day: Femme

Hey Everyone :-)
Hope you are having a wonderful Monday! Do you have any plans for the week? I have a new outfit post to share with you guys today, which I hope you will enjoy. Let's just jump right into the good stuff, shall we? :-)

What I'm Wearing:
♥ Jacket from Vila.
♥ Top from Gina Tricot.
♥ Pants from Gina Tricot.
♥ Scarf from Gina Tricot.
♥ Shoes from Stylish Plus.

I'm wearing my favorite jacket from Vila, which I got on sale for only $33. I'm so in love this jacket, it's such a great little jacket for Fall. I paired it with my Femme top and my favorite pair of black pants from Gina Tricot. Now that it's starting to get colder outside, scarfs are a must have in my book. So I decided to add one of my favorite scarfs to this look, which is this dark green one from Gina Tricot. Can you tell that I'm obsessed with Gina Tricot? LOL! I finished of the look with these white studded sneakers from Stylish Plus, which I'm in love with as well.

I have been wanting a pair of white sneakers for the longest time, and I'm happy to finally have a cute pair in my collection. White goes with everything, which is one of the reasons why I love them so much. They are really comfortable, they look great and they got zippers on the sides which is very convenient. I can't wait to put together more looks using these, definitely keep your eyes open for that. If you are interested in the sneakers, you can find them HERE :-) 

The shoes was sent to me by Stylish Plus for review purposes only. No payment was received for this review. My reviews are based on my personal opinions and experience using the item(s). All opinions are my own and 100% honest.

What do you think about the look? Have you bought any new clothes for Fall? What is your favorite Fall accessory? :-) Love, Christine♥

Products I've Used Up: July & August 2013

Hey Everyone :-)
How are you guys doing today? I hope you all are having a wonderful day. I have a new empties post to share with you. I know this post is very late, but better late then never, right? I managed to use up some products over the last couple off months. They have been laying around for such a long time now, so I thought it was time for me to finally do this post and share the items with you. I can't wait to finally throw everything out now, LOL! 

I hope you enjoy this empties post! Let me know in the comments down below if you have tried out any of the products below, and which items you managed to use up during July and August :-)

 L'Oreal Paris Eye & Lip Make-Up Remover Waterproof:
L'Oreal Paris's Eye & Lip Make-Up Remover Waterproof has been my go-to makeup remover for a long time now. I think that it does a great job removing my makeup, both regular and waterproof. This is definitely a product I'm going to stick with, until I find a new favorite :-)  

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel For Body and Hair:
I'm a huge fan off Lush and their yummy smelling products, and Snow Fairy is a great product to have in your shower. It's got a very fruity and sweet candy scent, which I really enjoy. It can be used as a body wash and even on your hair. I personally prefer to use it as a body wash, just because I find it to be a little drying on my hair. It does have a lot off blue glitter in it, but it didn't show up on my skin at all. Snow Fairy is definitely a product I would buy again. I think I'm going to pick up a bigger bottle if it comes back around Christmas time :-)

Paris Hilton Fairy Dust Perfume:
This used to be one of my favorite perfumes a couple off years ago. It's got a very strong scent, so a little goes a long way with this one. Some of the notes in Fairy Dust is pink peony, orange blossom, musk and vanilla cream. Since I really don't care for the scent anymore, I won't be repurchasing it :-)  

Covergirl Lashblast Volume Mascara in Black:
After hearing so many wonderful things about the Covergirl Lashblast Volume Mascara, I finally caved in and bought it for myself. I really do like this mascara a lot. It gives my lashes some nice volume and lenght, and it does a good job separating them as well. I'm not the biggest fan of the scent though, but I have gotten pretty used to it by now. This is definitely a mascara I would buy again :-)

 Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner:
I have been loving the Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner by Redken. This is a line that is created for people with color treated hair. I don't have color treated hair, but I can still use them on my hair. I love how soft they make my hair feel, and the color of my natural hair actually looks more vibrant afterwards. The scent is one of the reasons why I love these products so much. The scent lingers in my hair throughout the entire day, which I absolutely love. I'm such a sucker for good smelling products! :-)

I don't think that I will repurchase them anytime soon, just because I have a a few other shampoo's and conditioners that I want to try out and use up. They are also more suited for my hair type. If you have color treated hair, I highly recommend that you check these out :-)

Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Make-Up Removing Wipes:
I really like these cleansing and make-up removing wipes from Korres. They remove makeup very well, and they leave my skin feeling fresh and clean afterwards. They didn't break out my skin, which I'm very thankful for since I ended up loving these. They have a very refreshing scent, which I really like. Definitely a product I would repurchase :-) 

Garnier Skin Naturals Nordic Essentials Ultra Cleansing Wipes:
I have been using these cleansing wipes by Garnier for a few months now, and I really like them. They remove regular and waterproof makeup very well. They are very moisturizing, they leave a clean feeling on the skin afterwards and they have a nice and fresh scent. These have already replaced my beloved Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes, that's how much I love them. This is definitely a product I will keep buying :-)

Do you have any product recommendations? Which products did you use up in July and August? :-) Love, Christine♥

Outfit Of The Day: Moschino

Hey Everyone :-)
How is your Monday going so far? Do you have any fun plans for the week? I have a brand new outfit post to share with you guys today, which I'm super pumped about. The weather has been good for the last couple of days, so Simon and I finally got a chance to take some photos outside. Let me know what you think about the look, your feedback and comments make my day :-)

What I'm Wearing:
♥ Jacket from Vila.
♥ Top from H&M.
♥ Skirt from H&M.
♥ Scarf from Gina Tricot.
♥ Belt from Romwe.
♥ Leggings from BikBok.
♥ Shoes from Økonomisko.

I'm wearing my new jacket from Vila, which I'm head over heels in love with. I paired it with a simple t-shirt and grey skirt from H&M. I added my favorite scarf, a pair of black tights and my beloved studded boots from Økonomisko, which you have probably seen in quite a few of my outfit posts. I also decided to add this lovely Moschino belt, which I recently received from the lovely people over at Romwe. I think the belt goes really well with this look, what do you think? :-)

The Moschino belt was sent to me by Romwe for review purposes only. No payment was received for this review. My reviews are based on my personal opinions and experience using the item(s). All opinions are my own and 100% honest. 

What do you think about the look? What is your favorite Fall look? How would you wear the Moschino belt? :-) Love, Christine♥

I'm a neutral eyeshadow kind of girl, so I couldn't be more happy with the shades that I received. I have already worn the Elizabeth Arden Untold EDP perfume, and I like it so far. It's got a very nice and floral scent and it's a little strong too, so you don't need much :-) 

Overall, I'm very happy with the August GlossyBox, and I can't wait to try out all the products. Be sure to let me know in the comments down below, if there are any products you would like to see featured in a review :-)

Nails Of The Day: Fashionista In Love & Illamasqua Glitterati

Hey Everyone :-)
It feels like I haven't done a nail post in such a long time. I haven't been painting my nails a lot lately, so that's the reason why I have been a little quiet in the nail department lately. But I'm finally back with a brand new and fresh nail post for you guys today.

Since the Fall have officially arrived here in Norway, I wanted to go with a more darker nail polish shade for this upcoming week. I decided to go with In Love by the Fashionista brand, which is available at MUA Makeup Academy :-)

 ♥ Fashionista In Love & Illamasqua Glitterati.

♥ Fashionista In Love & Illamasqua Glitterati.

In Love is a beautiful deep purple, a perfect shade for the fall and winter months. I painted both of my ring fingers with Illamasqua's Nail Varnish called Glitterati, which I ordered from Sephora a while ago (check out my Sephora haul HERE.) Glitterati is a beautiful warm burgundy with multi-sized hexagonal holographic glitter. It's a real stunner! I really like how Glitterati and In Love looks paired together, they actually make a pretty good team :-)

What do you think about the look? Do you like how In Love and Glitterati looks paired together? Are you excited for the Fall?
:-) Love, Christine♥
