In's and Out's


  • A holiday - I'm going to Turkey (Istanbul & Bursa) next month for 9 days! *So happy!* Although it will not be a beach holiday, no "real" tan for me this year. It's more of a business trip as well as some much needed time out with the family! :)

  • Designing, drawing, sketching and brainstorming. I'm actually on a mission to design some make up bags, brush rolls, bags and other types of accessorries to add to my jewellery creations.
  • Healthy hair - I have said bye bye to my split ends, and got a trim!
  • Dark nailpolish.
  • Sleek Storm palette.
  • Topshop Jamie jeans.
  • Pretty colourful scarves from H&M.


  • Unhealthy , dry, dull hair.
  • Pretty summer dresses! :(
  • Curling my eyelashes. I don't need to, thanks to Li Lash. :)
  • Pigments... It seems I never have time for these!

Yay! I'm glad you're having some results from lilash! Excited for you to go on a holiday as well! And am also sad about summer dresses on the outs...will have to wait about 7 more months to bust them out again..:(

Great ins and outs! :)
I hate slip-end-looking hair :P I definitely should get a trim too! And thanks to Lilash, I don't need my eyelash curler either! How amazing is that for my super straight lashes!

H&M is my favourite place for scarves, so many pretty designs and rather cheap compared to other stores!!
I hope you enjoy your trip away even if it is a buisness one :)

I think that Bursa is one of the most beautiful cities in Turkey. So green, so historical!

I usually don't have the patience for pigments either.

I hope you have a great trip, even if it isn't a beach holiday :).

@Tali about 9 days :) im going for a break, and to talk about some business prospects with the family. where abouts in istanbul is the sakirin mosque? i would love to visit xx

@Analytic Approach to Style Bursa is def the best city for me in Turkey, as thats were my roots are :)

@Clearly Beautiful Blog wow there is so much to do in turkey, there is so much history in every city, istanbul is beautiful, full of wonderful architecture and scenery. Everywhere is beautiful, for the beach I recommend Antalya Lara beach. x
