Sunshine 9: Country Yard Girl

Hi guys:),

I've been looking for the perfect location - where I could make my own pic's of my outfits, which I'm currently in love with and so I found the perfect one, just some steps from my home door:)

Here you see me in my new clothes, which I've mentioned in my "Sunshine 4" post-tag and I've called the whole Outfit "Country Yard Girl" - as I think it's a perfect outfit for a trip through your location, great weekend outfit and just a comfy-/girly-/sweet style:) - What did you think?:)


For this style I've just grap some of my comfy long worn red Converse chucks, my H&M high-waist shorts, a nice light rose/pinkish tee' (t-shirt:)) from ZARA & my new tunic/blouse/alternative dress to bikinis from H&M:)

And for my makeup/hair style:


First of all - "What? Hairstyle?" - I mean, I've just washed my hair and tried to straighten my hair with my Remington flat iron straightner - BUT I've too wavy-/curly hair naturally - so it waves at the ends and in the middle after just one minute after straightening it:(

For the makeup I've just applied one of my Top 1 BB Creams from La Roche Posay, a brown eyeliner/pencil from Artdeco, a lipgloss in coral-/red shade by Jane Iredale and some of my lovely Max Factor Pastell Compact Powder (for me a kind of Bronzer:)) oh and a light/golden eyeshadow by BH Cosmetics.

Voila!:) - You Can Be the next Country Yard Girl too!

Would be happy about your comments - and hope you've a sunny day as well as I've had:)

Bye!


Sunshine 8: SENSATIONAIL

Hi guys:),

the last couple of days I've got a nice package/surprise from Sensationail (this is the brand new co-brand by Fingr's!:))

(Photo Credits: Sensationails- I don't own each of them!)

I've got the Sensationail Starter Kit (Scarlet Red), Removal Kit (which I've NOT tried out yet - as I'm actually wearing these glossy/gel nail polish at  the first time:)) - which includes: Gel Polish Removal Tool, Gel Polish Removal Wraps.

My SensatioNail Package:


The Starter Kit:


 Contains:  

1 SensatioNail PRO 3060 LED Lamp + accu, 1 nail file, 1 wooden cuticle "pusher", 1 Gel Cleanser, 1 Color Gel Polish (Scarlet Red), 1 Gel Base-/Top Coat, 1 Gel Primer  

The Removal Kit/Removal Tool:

 
Contains: 

(Removal Kit) 3 sets of 10 foil wraps, 4-way nail buffer and 1 wooden manicurre stick, 1 Instruction Sheet
(Removal Tool) 1 Gel Polish Removal Tool, 1 Instruction Sheet


The Essentials Kit - which I've not got, BUT will purchased it by myself - as this Kit includes the Gel Cleanser, Gel Primer and Gel Base-/Top Coat in a Full-Size packaging! (the Starter Kit contains just smaller/sample size bottles!:))

So I was pretty much glad about this surprise - as I've been interested in this gel nail polish alternative since the beginning of this year:)! - Oh and the different Color-Gel colours (by the way - you've much more in the US!:)) have also attracts me a lot!:)

So what's new, the result & my own opinion after the 1st try out?:

 (My final 1st Sensationail result, with "Scarlet Red")

As you can see on my pic' of my finger nails above, that the color pigmentation is pretty good, I really enjoy wearing red - so Scarlet Red was a new lovely red for me:)

I'm happy with the result, it doesn't takes you a pretty long time to apply the Gel-Polish(es) and the instruction sheet is really well written with lovely and detailed application pic's too:)!

It's also great, that it last you such a long time - as a normal manicure at your local nail salon will costs you probably the double price or even like the Starter Kit! (which costs: $49.98 at Walmart or Target US, £60.00 at the UK' Sensationails Website or UVP 69,99€ in Austria, Germany)

As I would say, it also last long on your fingers - as I've made my 1st Sensationail on Friday and since then I've not recognized any splits or damaged nails! (o.k. it's not such a long time BUT normally the polishes splits at the ends - as well as if you're using a good top coat and base coat!:))

My opinion is, that I'll surely buy some more Sensationail Gel Colors  like:

Babydoll Pink, Bubbly Champagne, Evening Sand, Pink Chiffon and Guilty Pleasure! - as well as the Essentials Kit too:)
 
BUT I've found out on other blogs (like: fromHeadToToe) and youtube channels, that you can just use your regular fav' nail polish instead of the Color Gel - just made all steps like it's in the instruction sheets with using your fav' nail polish - and it should stay as well as the Color Gel without splitting!:) - I'll definitely try it out soon and will post a reply with the photo of them:)!

These are some lovely ideas, which I've found at the SensatioNail Facebook Site:

(Photo Credits: SensatioNails Facebook Site - I don't own each of them!)

For example "Mr. Kate" - has create ultimate lovely pinkish cal' nails with some Glitter as an eye catcher!:


 Or what about this "Heart On" DIY nails also by Mr. Kate:)?:


What did you think about the Sensationail/have you tried it out until yet?:) - Hope you've enjoyed and liked my 1st post about this brand new (here for example in: Germany,Austria, UK it's almost brand new:)) nail polish technology - to create the best/"Nail Salon" like nails at your own home!:)

Wish you a lovely Sunday - afternoon!

Sunshine 7: 6902 Hollywood Blvd. LA

Hi guys:),

as I mentioned in my SALE (Sunshine 4) post , that I've bought some pieces at ZARA - this sweet lemony scent called "6902 Hollywood Blvd. Los Angeles" is from one of my fav' clothes stores ZARA too:)!


It was at the SALE too (Original Price: 15€ - 11€) BUT it's Limited Edition (I think they also offered Miami - yes and it's the pink/lilac bottle with flower/juicy scent) and remembers me on sweet candys like Lemon Sherbets or other like Nimm2 the one with lemon flavour/scent:)!

It's a great scent for summer 2013 - perfect for vacations at the beach - oh and on the back of the packaging you can see a lovely "palmy" landscape of LA hills!:)

Did you've ever tried out an Eau de Toilette or Perfume from ZARA?:) - Would be pleased about a comment from you!:)

Summer has arrived and we are happy about sunny and hot days outside - where we can refresh ourself with some homemade Iced Tea, Lemonade (like for example Watermelon Splash) or just jump into your nearest (maybe own:)) pool.

And that's the point, we girls need to be perfect styled and so it's the same with a nice, awesome swimwear like Bikini's or One Piece's - right?!:)

So I though to show you some lovely different styles of Bikini's and One Pieces to get some ideas for your next Beach day/Vacation or just for your own private Pool Party!:)

Sunshine 2: Hawaiian Heart

Aloha,

this post is the 2nd "Sunshine" one:) and will be all about the lovely sweet island of Hawaii!:) - Oh guys, I wish I could escape just this year the beautiful hawaiian place (as I wasn't until yet there:() BUT it seems, that I must wait a little bit:)
If someone would ask me - "What's specially Hawaii/the great hawaiian Island for you?" I would definitely say some keywords like: yummy homemade Hawaiian pineapple upside down cake or eating fresh coconut ice cream right from the coconut fruit!:), drinkin' the legendary Hawaiian Sun Juice (I would prefer Strawberry Guava Nectar or Pineapple Orange Nectar, or their Island Ice Tea too:)), to get a nice lovely little golden sun tan at the wide Waikiki Beach with a sun protector/screen like the long term Hawaiian Tropic one, 

The Hawaiian Sun Juices/Iced Teas/Jams or Coconut Syrups have all such a lovel vintage design:

Monoi de Tahiti Tiare Oil - it's the BEST (and with BEST I REALLY mean the BEST!!!!:)) summer holiday scent EVER! P.S. It seems to provide a longer tan after you've get one - I've already tried that out many times:)

Yummy cocktails (I prefer the Non-alcoholic ones guys, even if I'm already 20 - I just think that there are soooo many other refreshing drinks without alcohol too!:))

OH I would also really like to test out some REAL hawaiian ice cream balls by Bubbies - they look sooo gorgeous and yummy too - I just don't really understand the technique how to make them:) 

To avoid sleepless nights - a great place to stay during your (first) magical Hawaii (summer) vacation could be:

1. The Royal Hawaiian Waikiki Hotel/Resort

The maybe most expensive, luxurious & 1st huge hotel on this Island ! Many Hollywood actors from the past and today have visited this amazing and glamourous place on the ultimative beautiful Waikiki Beach:)

(Photo Credits: www.royal-hawaiian.com)

For more information & history visit their website:

2. The Pacific Beach Hotel:

It's a nice and awesome place - especially the huge wall aquarium  in the dining space!)

(Photo Credits: www.pacificbeachhotel.com)

For more informations please visit their website: Pacific Beach Hotel

3. Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel:

A great architecture, lovely designed and with a huge atmosphere hotel/vacation place on the lovely hawaiian Island. This place is really worth to stay for some days - I wish to visit it too someday:)!


For more information please visit their own website: Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel

A great place to visit on the lovely Honolulu Hawaii is the Honolulu Zoo! It was introduce/opened in 1876 by King David Kalakaua.

Or what about some lovely tourist gifts, or just vacation gifts for your fam'. Which you'll buy at the International Market Place in Honolulu too?:)

Oh and for a snack/breakfast right on your tourist trip to the next hawaiian place, go to Leonard's Bakery (vid' about the HISTORY)- where you'll have the choice of diferent sweet baking things like Malasadas - portugese doughnut or what about Liliah's Bakery since 1950 - where you could try some Ensemadas (a spanish dessert cake) or Green Tea Rolls.

For your body-/facial skin JUST the best and organic things - while you stay and after you've leaved the beautiful Hawaii!

Malie Organics, offers you different body polishes, body washes and lotions, perfumes, body oils - which won't just treat your skin But your inner sould too!:) The Mango Nectar range seems to be the yummiest!:)

Kohana Skin natural skin cosmetics brand is beloved by the most hawaiian tourists and Stars too!:) Like for example: Jennifer Lawrence, Tyra Banks, Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Garner, Andie MacDowell, Hailee Steinfeld, Leslie Mann, Michelle Trachtenberg and others received their Wild Ginger Alaea Salt Scrub and the Papaya Pineapple Enzyme Masque on the Day of Indulgence (August 2012)

But that's NOT all, for sweet tooth's you could try out the legendary  Happy Cake Fruit Cake, which is made & baked from fresh pineapples and macadamia in Oahu with a secret recipe since 1967. Or just grap some pretty fashion pieces at Pineapple County boutique in Waikiki- where you'll find pretty dresses, t-shirts and accessoire too!, this boutique excist since 2001.

Or what about learning how to Surf in the right way/position and most important SAVE:)! - Go to Aloha Surf Hotel Waikiki - where Surfer's can stay during the Hawaii Vacation - as it's almost at the Waikiki Beach and not far from a near Surfer School too! The Hawaii Waikiki Aquarium is one of the most important places for you as a tourist, to see, which fish and dangerous creatures you could see in the beautiful wide sea:)! - A great place where to stay with your family, friends or even alone for a lovely tourist outside afternoon!

Hope you've enjoyed this 2nd "Sunshine" post about the beautiful island of Hawaii and wish you all:

"A hui hou" (See you again:))

Sunshine 1: Annette's Beach Party

Hi,

As Summer is finally here - I've though to create a brand new kind of posts - the "Sunshine" posts, which will be completely max. 30 posts! - If you would like to attend this new blogger 30-days post tag, please let me know in the comments!:) So let's begin with the first "Sunshine".

I've listen soooooooo many times the last month and this too:) - "Beach Party", "Bikini Party", "Hawaiianette" or "Back To The Beach" from Annette Funicello - who was one of the maybe most influence female actor of the 60's for teenage girls and women!:)

 (Photo Credits: Google, Pinterest - I don't own each of them!:))

I'm normally a huge 80s fan, BUT this summer just began, and I fall in love with the good old classic summer hits/songs, which she had sang so wonderful!:)

Do you wanna create your own 60s summer in your backyard/garden BUT you haven't a time machine/capsule (as this is the REALITY and not just a FAIRYTALE:)!) - Don't be confused or sad - you've the opinion to create an ultimative booming 60s summer atmosphere!

You'll just need some beauty products, which were available during this period too or vintage packaged one, a nice vintage swimwear (one piece or bikini in a 60s style), some yummy milkshakes - or what about a refreshing "Pineapple Sundae" - which could be replaced by a modern low-fat frozen yoghurt with fresh cut, dried pineapples or pineapple sauce!

Hope you've enjoyed the first tag/post of this new 30-days "Sunshine" blog tag idea:) And wish you all a lovely Saturday late afternoon!:)

Bye,
NIKA

At the first sight, when I saw the bottle was, that this foundation would be also a bit darker as my natural skin tone, BUT in fact it matches perfectly!!!!:) (maybe 'cause the sun is now shinning a lot and so I'm getting a natural low tan:)) The texture is a bit weird, it's liquid but has a weird consistency - this is probably something new for you, even if you're applying your foundation with your own hands - which by the way allows a great blending with your skin!

It also REALLY stays for a long time on the right place of your face:)! So it's a great foundation for school, work or other special activities in your life (I've just not tested out the waterproof-resistence yet!).

I'll re-buy it after used it up!

What says L'Oreal:

True Match super-blendable liquid foundation perfectly matches the colour and texture of your skin, hiding imperfections with its fine, creamy texture & gives you a flawless coverage. As it blends seamlessly with the skin, it automatically adjusts to the texture of the skin to create a flawless finish. Oil-free& non-comedogenic.

L'Oreal Paris la poudre Perfect Match Creamy Powder (shade: K5 Rose Sand)


My first look at the packaging has blown up my mind, it's totally lovely packaged (as well as each other L'Oreal True Match packagings!) - for a drugstore product really great designed!:) 

Now let's turn to the texture: it's the same weird/other feeling like by the L'Oreal True Match Foundation! It's like L'Oreal says by it's own - that it's creamy and powdery so 1in2 product. Which blends REALLY well on your skin and gives you a middle-matt effect - oh and stays as well for hours. The skin feeling is comfortable/great too:)!

Re-buying included.

What says L'Oreal:

The powder perfectly matches the colour and texture of your skin for a flawless finish. The fine, soft and lightweight powder blends perfectly : you can blot shine, blend for a natural finish or build for more coverage.

True Match Powder is a compact powder which allows you to achieve a flawless-looking complexion without caking. The ultra-fine formula means you can apply a single translucent layer to even your complexion or you can build up more coverage to cover imperfections.

L'Oreal Paris le blush Perfect Match Cheek Color/Blush (shade: 150/125 Nude Pink)

I must say, that this blush is high-pigmented! So you need a REALLY small amount of it, as otherwise you'll get big/huge cheeks:)! Oh and I'm using for the application my own blush-brush as the included one, is pretty and well made BUT it's not really great for the texture of the blush and so it takes a long time, to get the right amount of the blush on the included brush - you know what I mean:)?

My shade is a deeper/dark rose/pinkish tone with sparkles in it - a great blush for light-medium skin types and also great for a blush-bronzer combination!:)

As you'll need really a tiny-petit-amount of it, I will probably not re-buy it by myself, as when it cames to blushes/bronzers etc. I'm a kind of makeup girl - who likes to try out different shades/colors:)

What says L'Oreal:

The soft, healthy-looking glow - comes in pink, apricot and honey hues to match every woman’s skin tone – warm, cool or neutral. Its compact-size, and integrated brush and mirror. Oil-free and non-comedogenic.

L'Oreal Paris True Match Anti-Fatique & Illuminating Concealer (shade: R3-4-5 Rose Beige)

I'm absolutely in love with such "Twist-Click" (concealer) applicators, as they are easy to apply - even if you're on a road trip or just where you've not the right brush (which normally  doesn't happen to us Makeup-Freaks - right?!:)) As I'm using the Perfect Match Concealer - I'm using this Anti-Fatique & Illuminating Concealer as a Highlighter on my upper lid! - It gives you an extra kick on your high lid line!:)

But it's not something, which I would re-purchase as it's not really necessary for myself:)

What says L'Oreal:

This concealer is an illuminating concealer which helps improve the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. It will leave the delicate skin around the eye area looking radiant, as well as perfectly concealing any blemishes. It's oil-free and non-comedogenic.

Maybelline Jade New York The Rocket  Volum' Express Water-Proof Mascara (shade: Black):



As I'm not really wearing often Mascaras (Guys, my own natural lashes are long and big enough:)!) I'm also not often buy myself some new/ultimative great mascaras, BUT after trying out these one - I think I'll buy my next Mascara the same - as it's REALLY waterproof and makes my eye sparkle a bit more!:)

What says Maybelline NY:

Now, the most explosive, beautiful lashes ever! Supersonic Brush, and Fast Glide formula. Loads on big, sleek volume instantly!
