Karl says très chic - oh oui, I agree!

I have a lovely new nail polish from Catrice's Ultimate Nudes collection:

N° 090 - Karl says très chic


(Embedded Video)

As I mention in the video, I would not necessarily call this color "nude". It is a rose-pink with a mauve undertone, very wearable und classic. Hence the name, I guess!

Here are some pictures for you:

The application is due to the new brush design really easy (the brush is nice and thick) and the first coat is already quite opaque. I applied two coats and am very satisfied with the outcome.
 
Catrice's nail polishes are inexpensive and deliver great results. Me likey!
 
On an unrelated note, it looks like spring finally arrived (and not just according to the calendar). Woohoo! Are you also so happy to welcome the sun back into your life? Or do you life in a year-round sunny place? If that's the case, I envy you!

Sick Lizzy

Hello world!
Yeah, the title is spot on - I haven't been feeling well for quite some time but always skipped going to the doc. This monday, it was finally bad enough for me to cave in and the result was a nice sinusitis, antibiotics and a week at home. Blegh.

I shot two short videos with the Iphone for you:

Tuesday


Wednesday


Mainly, I wanted to test the direct upload function but if you like these kind of short glimpses into my life, I could do them more often. Tell me what you think!

Plus, I want to extend the invitation from the first video: I'd be happy to connect with you on twitter, formspring, draw something, pinterest.... my username is busylizzy111, come and find me!

Neutrogena Multi Defense Daily Moisturiser

Have you seen my latest video already?
(BTW, you should subscribe to my youtube channel - that way you'll get the new content automatically plus it would totally make my day :-) )

Anyway, this is my favourite moisturiser at the moment:


I have to admit that it was not enough for the cold spell we had in January (I needed something heavier then) but now I am back to using it as my daycream and I could not love it more. I absorbs easily and quickly, has no strong perfume scent and, as you can see in the video, the packaging is really clever. Me likey!

Freitags-Füller #153 (German)

(My dear non-german speaking readers, I have a post lined up for you, but friday is friday... If you can point me to an equally fun english tag, I'd be happy to oblige)
-----
Wer mitmachen möchte findet hier den aktuellen Freitags-Füller

1. Ab und zu ist Ruhe schön, ab und zu nicht. Balance lautet das Zauberwort. (hach wie poetisch)




2. Jetzt könnte ich gut ein Stück Torte verputzen. hmmmm, lecker!



3. Meine Frühlingsdeko existiert noch nicht.



4. Fisselregen und Nebel, mir reicht's.



5. Vorhin dachte ich dank MINA über eine Auswanderung nach.



6. Hier sieht's ja aus wie bei Hempels unter dem Sofa.



7. Was das Wochenende angeht, heute Abend freue ich mich auf hoffentlich abklingende Kopfschmerzen, morgen habe ich den Besuch in einem neuen Fitnessstudio geplant und Sonntag möchte ich ausruhen, werde aber vielleicht streichen müssen!


Ein wunderbares WE wünsche ich euch!
