Ieva goes to buy a dessert...

  And here's what she comes home with...It's always like this, isn't it? Wether I go to buy only bread or milk, I always end up with a bunch of unnecessary things. This was my trip to go and buy something to eat with my evening tea. I feel like the grocery store staff is very smart, they always put out the most tempting things right on your way. I go my usual grocery store path and just pick up everything that's distracting my bread-focused attention.

Pretty packaging? Check. Reasonably healthy/unhealthy? Check. Pretty colors? Check. This is very typical of me.

I almost indulged myself with some Phyto hair care products (been wanting to try them) but then had to remind to myself that I'm only here for some tasty snack!

-Heart shaped bagel. to tasty for words!
-Milford Strawberry and Vanilla tea
-Glade Honey and Chocolate candle. This is amazing! I got so excited when I saw it, it's a candle made for me! And it is slightly reminiscent of Tom Ford Black Orchid perfume. My mum confirmed that, she said it's typically your type of candle plus you have a perfume like this! Well, they both contain chocolate note so what do you expect. Anything Black Orchid-like is a win win for me!
-Kalev Marzipan and Almond chocolate bar
-Lilac mug with polka dots. No explanation needed.
-Alpen Raspberry and Yoghurt cereal bar
-Dirol Strawberry gum
In case you were dumb and didn't know what it was. It's a mug. It's lilac and it has dots on!! Thank God there was a sticker explaining what it is, I would not know what to do with this ceramic thing!
On another note, I wore red lip today. The nude lip worshipers may think I'm crazy, maybe I am but I love that! At first I wasn't feeling very brave goofing around with my red lips but then I thought, what the hell, why would I be uncomfortable about that! Life is too short to care what other people think of you. I may not want to wear red lips when I'm 70, let's enjoy it now! 
I've been particularly loving this look as you see in the pics below: Minimal skin and eyes and a deep lip. I feel like I can pull this look off very well being super pale and having blond hair. Nude lips would make me look like a walking dead.
I think this may turn into my everyday look for the upcoming weeks, months or until I get bored of it. 
I've also noticed that the amount of attention I get increased x3. Not only from girls, I must say male audience definitely favors a red lip! 

This lipstick is the bomb! I've found my perfect red! All the props go to Diana http://blog.adventuresofbarbarella.com. This is exactly what I've been looking for! It's a pink red, such a delicious raspberry colour, I cannot get enough of it! It's cool toned and that's what I need my red to be. 
I must say, however, that I have't tried Red Lizard by Nars. Just yet. I'm pretty sure it will be the ultimate red of reds for me but until then this is my perfect pre-Red Lizard red! 
I love the texture, the finish and application. The lasting power is pretty amazing too! The pictures were taken after 4+ hours of wear and a consumption of an ice cream! What do you say?
On my face: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua B10, Loreal True Match powder in Golden Beige, Nars Deep Throat blush, Wet n'Wild eyeshadow in Brule all over the lid, Rimmel Lash Excelerator mascara.
Mac lip liner in Red Enriched (love!)
Rouge Dior 880 Rose Diablotine

What are your fave reds, ladies?

  1. Red lipstick looks really good on you, if I were you I would put on more mascara, but this is just my preference.
    I'd love to wear some red-raspberry lipstick but I don't feel comfortable with it. Maybe I should start with some raspberry colored lipgloss. :)
    Your skin looks flawless!
