NOTD - Plaid/Tartan Nails!

Ho Ho Hooo Merry Christmas :)

Just a little post to show you what I came up with yesterday for the holiday/winter season!

I was bored and since I haven't done anything interesting with my nails lately I suddenly had the idea, looking at my plaid Zara scarf, to do plaid nails. And this is the result :D

Two layers of red nailpolish and then I drew some vertical and horizontally black and silver lines. Took me quite some time but I was doing it while watching one of my favorite series ^^


My thumb and three middle fingers turned out quite good thought while I totally screwed up my pinky finger xD Compared to my right hand, my left turned quite good. I have to practise thought...

RED : Avril le vernis #19 Rouge opéra
BLACK : Essence nail art freestyle & tip painter in #09 Mysterious black
SILVER : Essence nail art freestyle & tip painter in #03 Silver Surfer

Hope you like it. Leave a comment please!

And have a nice holiday season,

My experience with the Zigavus Extra Plus Garlic Shampoo!

Hi guys,

I wanted to share my experience with the Zigavus Extra Plus garlic shampoo with you! I know what you must think now, garlic shampoo? Ihhhhhhh how can somebody only use that and what is it good for??? Well, don't worry! This shampoo might be made out of garlic but it doesn't smell like it at all otherwise I wouldn't have tried it xD

Zigavus Extra Plus Garlic/Knoblauch Shampoo




Effects: It takes effect within 10 days when regularly used. It prevents hair loss and straightens hair follicles.
It makes hair healty, vivid resistant and strong, and prevents hair loss thanks to the rich substances in its garlic extract.
The garlic extract shampoo helps you clean the dead layer of epidermis sensitively and prevents dandruff formation. It helps your hair have its natural beauty.
Those who have been hair implanted can use this product with no problem.

Use: Apply a certain amount of shampoo to your hair by first massaging the shampoo over your wet hair, then rinse. Apply the same procedure for a second time and wait for 2-3 minutes. Therefore, the substances within the garlic extract will penetrate into the hair skin. Rinse your hair with plenty of water finally. Do not use any other products in order to benefit from the Zigavus Garlic Shampoo.

Before and after the Zigavus treatment!!!

fyi: I tried to take the pictures from the same distance as good as I could and my pony tail should be at the same place as usual. Also if my hair seems lighter on the right picture it's because I have more highlights in it.

So as you can see, my hair is longer than it was almost two months before the treatment and you have to consider the fact that I was also at the hairdresser and got my hair also cut for about 1-2 cm since it was time again.

I do believe that it's also a bit thicker than it was and slightly more healthier looking, althought I am such a catastrophe when it comes to my hair cuz I'm always straightening it or curling it and often forget to put some oil in it and it's dry as straw almost always anyway.

What I also liked about the shampoo, is that I didn't lose much hair while washing as I did before with other shampoos. Concerning that I would really recommand this to anybody who has a big hair loss problem.

So do I believe that my hair growth was influenced by this shampoo???
My hair does actually grow fast but since I was at the hairdresser and got it cut I would say yes I do believe that this shampoo helped me. A few friends of mine also noticed that my hair is longer :D so I guess this was the prove for me.

If you're interested in buying this shampoo I ordered mine at, for 150 ml you have to pay 20 €, shipping is 4,10 € and you can pay with paypal. I think the price is okay for such a special treatment and since you don't need a big amount of it, only a hazelnut, it can last up to almost 2 months I would say.

I will order and use this again whenever I feel it's time again!!!

Thanks for reading
and have some nice holidays ;)

Makeup haul : Sleek Arabian Nights palette - I heart makeup blushes - Makeup Revolution

Hello back again!!!

Did you miss me? Cuz it's been almost 2 months since my last post. Sorry for that! Now if you wonder what happened. Life happened. I was busy working, also working out and constantly tired, way too tired and busy to find some time to do post and everytime I was motived to take pictures, my photo programm was on strike and didn't do things I wanted it to do. I also decided to take some time off blogging to return with full motivation and new inspiration. While I was on blogging break I also finally managed to find a new job that I will start on the 2nd of january yaaaaaaaaaay :D 

Good new are, I will earn like the triple I did before and that also means I will soon be able to afford more makeup and other great things LOL

But to come back to my actual blog post, I'm starting with a makeup haul, ordered this stuff a month ago but as already said didn't find the energy and time to upload all these pictures, so here we go... haul:

They promoted the new I <3 makeup brand on their facebook page and that's how these heart shaped blushes got my attention. They immediately reminded me of the too faced heart blushes, which I don't owe yet but remember that raise I'll be given in January, we'll change that soon and then I can even tell you if these are also dupes to them or just a copy cat. Ordered also the Makeup Revolution kajal, yeah also because of the packaging, since I always wanted to try these kind of kajals. And last but not at all least, the Sleek Arabian Nights palette! Don't ask me how many Sleek palettes I owe meanwhile. I can't tell until I look it up.

I <3 makeup triple baked blushes + hightlighter

From left to right: Candy Queen of Hearts - Peachy Keen Heart - Hightlighter

There were one or two more blushes but I only wanted to try these two for the beginning. And this brand also has a bronzer but it didn't make any sense for me to buy a bronzer in winter so I only went for the highlighter because highlighter you can wear every season :)

Blushing Hearts - Candy Queen of Hearts:


Blushing Hearts - Peachy Keen Heart:


The two blushes seemed quite pigmented while swatching them. When you apply them on the cheeks you don't need much product, they apply easy but fade away after a few hours so you need to do a touch up. I find it hard to only use one color, you always seem to take some of the color next to it too but thumbs up that they turned out to be better than I thought and they don't leave any fall out.

 Goddes of Love -  triple baked highlighter :


When I'm swatching this with my fingers it seems pretty pigmented but while using a brush there was almost no payoff or difference over my cheek bone. Also the blushes are very shimmery and there is no need using this highlighter with them. I'm a bit disappointed, I wonder if the bronzer has a similar payoff or is as quite as pigmented as the blushes.

Makeup Revolution Black Kajal

Once again I fell for the packaging and because my sister in law, who is Algerian, is always using one of these, but I think hers is high end cuz this one doesn't perform that well. I only used it so far on my waterline and I believe these are actually only for that. It's okay but doesn't knock me from my seat. They are better ordinary kajals out there!

Sleek i-Divine Arabian Nights eyeshadow palette

This also has a really beautiful packaging but I fell more for the name of it, who doesn't love arabian eyes? I'm a huge fan of these looks. I'm not one of these people who throws away all kind of makeup packages lol I'm keeping some in a drawer... yeah I know why actually?! I don't know I just can't throw away something as nice as this. Since this is a limited edition palette I ordered one for me and one for a friend.


It has a mix of smokey colorful but also neutral colors. Some of the colors are shimmery, some more metalic and others have a satin or frosted finish. The texture of them is great and they are easy to blend.


I like Gold Souk, Sultan's Garden, Simbad's Seas and Valley of Diamonds a lot. I'm very happy with this purchase. And I can't wait to use green with blue and add some gold or aubergine to it. Lots of combinations are possible with this palette! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
