I love the pure sound of rock, guitar riffs and strong drum beats! Looking back to my highschool days when I first put my hands on an electric guitar (and fell completely in love with it) such great memories come back. I wasn’t really into makeup back then, but once I got into uni and met the black eyeliner for the first time, this was my look every single day! Featured in this post: boyfriend’s oversized Iron Maiden “The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg” t-shirt and my own beloved red Fender Squier. On another note, I was nominated by Uzo for the Libester

Get the look: 1. Lancôme’s Maquimat Ultra Naturel foundation; 2. Lancôme’s Teint Miracle concealer; 3. Manhattan Multi Effect Eyeshadow in Pinkalicious; 4. P2′s Eye Dream eye

I recently took up jogging as part of my daily fitness routine. Jogging is such a great way to get and stay fit – but how do you keep your motivation high? This is what works for me.

Alternate between medium and fast speeds and be sure to warm up by walking slowly for five minutes and cool down in the same manner. Don’t push yourself too

Purple lips 2

I adore purple and deep plummy colors, I find them so elegant, even royal. I must admit I’m way too shy to ever wear such a dark colored lipstick outside, but a girl can at least have fun in front of the camera, right?

Get the look: 1. Vichy Normaderm Teint – Foundation in 25 Clair Nude; 2. Lancôme’s Teint Miracle concealer; 3. P2′s luxurious eyeliner pen in pearl brown; 4. P2 Drama Lashes; 5. Catrice Prime and Fine Highlighting Powder; 6. Maybelline Fit Me! pressed Powder
