I'm back from London! + Simba is missing :(

Hey guys, I'm back! I wanted this to be a very happy post, but I simply can't because no one has seen Simba since wednesday. Now I know cats usually do those things, run off for a couple of days but it's so freaky now with all the firework.. I'm really scared something has happened to him, but I hope he'll be back very soon. If you live in Zoetermeer, please let us know if you see him anywhere :( 
Anyway, my trip was really amazing, here's a little summary.
The day we arrived, the 26th we went to friends for a big christmas lunch (with something they call "crackers", I had so much fun! We stayed there for the night and the next day it was my birthdaaaaaaaay :D We drove to our hotel (near Colliers Wood) and we took the underground to Victoria. When we walked out of the station...
BAM! Look how pretty and green :D 

But it wasn't showtime yet, so we went to Oxford street, to the primark. It was WAY too busy so we didn't buy a lot. Then we went back to the theatre to see Wicked ♥

It was so fantasticly AMAZING, I wish I could sing like Rachel Tucker and Gina Beck! We had the entire new 2012 cast, and omgnbdsjvkkdbvhvwjk ♥

The next day, wednesday, we went to Oxford Street (again) to shop for real. The primark was still quite busy but not as bad as the previous day.

A big red bus, yay!

After loads of shopping we had a drink at Starbucks, yummmm, and my lameness decided to make a picture.

After that, we walked towards Leicester square. The whole city was decorated so pretty, look at this!

On Leicester square we went to see a movie, New Year's Eve. I would recommend this to any one, the movie was great!

On thursday we went to central London and I made a picture of the Big Ben. He's quite hard to photograph actually...

On friday we went shopping in Blue Water before we left but I didn't buy anything there. Here's everything I did buy:

All the clothes are from primark, I bought a turquoise blouse, a red vest, a turquoise knitted sweater, a shirt with 2 birds on it, a beige sweater with an owl on it and a union jack (!) knitted sweater. I also bought a lot of jewellry, 4 rings and 2 necklaces. The little box in the left is my new lens wich I got for birthday (: The bag is from primark too, I love it. At the victoria apollo theatre, where we saw Wicked, I bought a programme book and a black Wicked-mug :D At the lush store I bought (ofcourse) Lemony Flutter, Tea Tree Water, Pow Wow! lipscrub and a Tea Tree Steamer Tab. he last thing I bought is a Union jack blackberry cover, wich I ADORE!

So, that's about it, if you see Simba anywhere please let me know...

Happy new year everyone!

Merry Christmas! + Herôme - Kingston

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! I hope you'll all have a great christmas this year with lots of love and joy ♥ Tomorrow I'm leaving for London so I won't be seeing you in a while, but I'll make loads of pictures to show you when I get back! Today we're celebrating Christmas with some family (Laureen, if you're reading this, see you at 4 o'clock!) and I needed a mani that would match my dress. Found it! I'm wearing Herôme - Kingston, a  beige/champagne-coloured scattered holographic! It only took me 2 coats to get this opaque, yay!

H&M - Cherry

Hey guys! Only 4 days till christmas, 5 days till I'm leaving to London and 6 days till my birthday & Wicked :D I'm so excited (and I just can't hide it! lol.), just one more day of school and I'm free. I didn't know what to paint my nails with and I still don't know what to wear on my nails with christmas but oh well, I'll figure something out. Today I'd like to show you one of the mini polishes by H&M, called Cherry. There are loads of words to describe this. Like..cherry-tomatosauce-pinkish-purply-red. It was too dark outside to take normal daylight pictures, sorry about that. This is two coats, no topcoat: 
bright-orange lamplight, no flash.

shadow, with flash.


See what I mean? In some light it's very much alike tomatosauce, and in other light it's very cherry. Very cherry, that sounds cute! Anyway, my pizza is done, so I got to go. Bye!

PS. What is your favourite black nailpolish? Mine is empty and not available anymore :(

My 100th post! Party/Christmas-mani "Hello Julia"

Hey guys! I just saw this is my 100th post, yay! I'm really thankfull for all of my followers and I love reading your comments, thankyou guys! Tommorow I'm hosting a birthday party with Sophia for all of our musical-friends :D I wanted something with a lot of glitters, and here it is! I applied one layer of my favourite black wich is empty now (booooohoohoo :c) then I used Hello Holo by Essence and sponged it onto the tips. After that I used Essence - Julia and added some more glitter! It took me two layers of topcoat to get it all straight haha..

Herôme WIC - Frankfurt with Essence - Crack Me! Blue

Hello cuties! Today I'd like to show you one of the polishes I got from Sinterklaas (aka my aunt, thanks!), it's Frankfurt from the Herôme WIC collection. A dark, crème blue. It was pretty much opaque in one coat, but I applied 2 just to make the colour more intense.
A bit of a moven picture, sorry. It gets dark so quick these days, it sucks. 

with flash.

After this I wanted to add something extra, so I took my blue crackle from Essence and I applied a thin coat. It crackles like spaghetti, not sure if I like it..

with flash.

close-up, with flash.


I like the complete look of it, but without flash it's really hard to see the cracks.. Drying time and application of Frankfurt was great, but the crackle dried up a bit..ugly. It wasn't matte, but it wasn't shiny? But, after a good layer of topcoat it shined all pretty :D

Only 18 days left till my birthday!

Superstar - Remember Me Red

Hello my lovely (160!) followers ♥ Sorry for not posting a while, I was sick and didn't really had time last week. But now, I'm back with finally, a new mani! My nails are still really short, but I hope you don't mind.. This is also a nailpolish  received from Lucy, it's from a brand called Superstar. And it's my new favourite red :D I used 2 coats but I should've used 3 haha woops...

as you can see, my middlefingernail is still really short.. 

normal light, no flash.


After this dried I decided to do some sponging on the top, and I took Hema - 08 but it just wouldn't really show up on the pictures... 

blurry pic, with flash.

I'm going to paint my nails every 2 days now I think, to keep the treatment stuff working but also to have some colour on my shorties.

I have some AMAZING news to share! 
AND, on my birthday (the 27th of December) one of my dreams will be fulfilled, I'll finally go to Wicked on West End! I really hope Rachel Tucker will be playing Elphaba, she's amazing ♥
