Last weekend was the only beautiful day in a long time and guess what? It has been raining since then. The sun was shining and I got a few new things.
In the afternoon I prepared everything for the BBQ in the evening. Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of the yummy food but Summer hasn't even started so I am sure I'll get another chance to photograph a typical BBQ at Maison Maria. ;)
Okay let's start with what I got last weekend:
The first thing I got is a pair of shoes and OMG I am so in love with these. I have been looking at them since they arrived at my parents shop. These wedges are from the company Vic Matié, an Italian shoe manufacture. And of course they have a neon orange detail. I am so obsessed with the colour orange right now. It always used to be my favourite colour when I was a little child and now I like it again very much. :)
I went to the drugstore and got a few things I really needed and as always I couldn't resist getting some goodies. I stopped at the ESSIE counter and got a orange nail polish with a hint of red in it.
The colour is called CAPRI and I love the island Capri very much. It is extremely beautiful there.
The next beauty related idiom I got is an eyeshadow from the company GOSH, which I really wanted to try out for a very long time. The company came out in Austria last fall I think, but I am not sure. I actually own one product of them, a velvet lip primer, which I never use, not because it isn't a good product, but I am too lazy to use 500 products in the morning.
Anyways I got the eyeshadow in the colour BROWN.
The eyeshadow has a warm undertone and a few sparkles in it. I think it is the perfect everyday colour because it can be used on its own. Apply it all over the lid and blend it away to create a soft shade and build the colour in the crease. Blend everything well together and you have a beautiful and little edgy everyday look.
This is how the colour looks blended away.
It would also look very good mixed with a lighter or even a darker colour.
The pigmentation of the product is also very good.
I used the eyeshadow the following week and noticed that without a primer underneath it'll smudge away easily.
But with a good primer it is a good eyeshadow.
The thing I like the most is of course the colour.
As the weather was so nice I went out and took some pictures of our beautiful garden. I love to be in nature and I love flowers. We have a lovely rockery. As child I used to play with all the stones and I even built little houses for my barbies and little dolls. But I also liked to climb onto the bigger stones or play football with my friends.
We have a lot of fruit trees and shrubs. We also have red and black currants in the early summer. I absolutely love the juice and even more I like the yummy jam that we make out of them. Here you can see red currants in the middle of Spring. They are still green but I am looking forward to eat them.
I wore simple black jeans, a jeans-shirt and coral-pink nail-polish that day.
I absolutely love to be barefoot. To me it is a sign of freedom and it makes me happy. Also it is good for your health.
I hope the sun will be up in Austria soon an that Summer returns again. I am sick of wearing thick jackets and Hunters - although they are pretty stylish - and I am sick to freeze all the time.
The only good thing this weather brings with it is that nature is able to regenerate a little bit.
The glaciers won't melt as soon as they would if there was extremely hot weather.
The wood will grow fast and there might be new springs.
Anyways, I wish you all a nice evening and
