Scrambled eggs with vegetables | Recipe

Hello Everyone! So today it's time for my very first recipe. Scrambled eggs is a quick and easy dish that you can do with things you already have at home.

1. Prepare the eggs. Break 2-3 eggs per person into a bowl of jug.
2. Mix well until the colour is yellow.
3. Heat a pat of butter in a frying pan. Move the pan by its handle, so that the melted fat glides around and coats the entire pan.
4. Watch that as the eggs start to cook, the mixture solidifies. As soon as this starts happening, move the mixture around the pan.
5. Put all the other ingredients in the pan. Move all around and see if your eggs are almost cooked.

Your eggs are done after there's no liquid left in the pan. Et voilĂ  you have your scrambled eggs! Hope you enjoyed reading this type of post!

Let me now if you have tried this recipe or a similar one. Have a nice week. :) xx

VICHY Normaderm Anti-Imperfections Moisturizer | Review

Hello Ladies! So today I want to talk about one of my favorite skin products - Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfections Tri-Activ Hydrating Care.

I have an oily skin and have been suffering from acne for the last couple of years. I asked a friendly lady who worked at a local pharmacy if she could help me find a good moisturizer for an oily and sensitive skin with acne. And she recommend me this product from Vichy Laboratoires. I had only good experiences with Vichy products so I had high standards to this moisturizer.

The product comes in a white pump bottle with a green cap. So it's quite easy to applie and not to waste it. The bottle contains 50ml of a white cream. I really like the quite thick texture of it. It isn't greasy and sticky at all and it absorbs very quickly. Before buying this moisturizer I was searching for one that has an agreeable scent. But it's really hard to find one because most of them smell really chemical. But the smell of this moisturizer is different. It has such a fresh sent that I actually think my skin feels fresher for a longer time. I mean this feeling when you wash your face in the morning with cold water and after that you feel so much more refreshed. Nah, maybe it's just me?!

Like I said above I have a combination skin which has an excessive oily T-zone all through the year and it's really sensitive plus I suffered of severe acne. This product definitely prevent my skin from getting more oily and it does keep my skin matte on my T-zone. But it hasn't helped me diminishing my severe acne. That's why I went to a dermatologist. But now I haven't got acne anymore just a few scarves but I still use this product because it helps me prevent to get acne again!

The only problem I have with this moisturizer is that it does not work well with make up at all. Unfortunately it balls and rolls up into tiny white balls. What is really annoying. That makes it impossible to wear make up on top. So when I want to use it as a Day care I don't use as much make up as I used to or don't use make up at all. I like to use it as a Night care as well.

I have already bought this two times and it has totally helped my skin not to get oily and to prevent blackheads and acne. It's available in every pharmacy or you can get it at Boots here and at Amazon here.

To conclude, I have already bought this two times and this moisturizer has totally helped my skin not to get oily, to prevent blackheads and acne. I would definitely recommend this to everyone with mild acne problems and combination to oily skin or just oily skin! It's definitely
the price $ 32.50 / £12.00 worth!

Have you tried this moisturizer before? Which is your favorite moisturizer?

Have a nice day! xx

Ever heard about Prairie Charms? | Project Blogger

Hello Everyone :)

So I'm pretty excited to introduce you to the online store Prairie Charms.
Recently I was approached on Twitter asking if I'd like to participate in the 'Project Blogger'. Project Blogger is an initiative where I (and all the other bloggers) receive 50% off of anything on their website.
Immediately I felt in love with everything on their website and after realising that they donate a cut of the profit to the Great Ormand Street Children's Hospital Charity, I couldn't wait to get involved!

As always all my views and thoughts are my own and I would never recommend anything to you that I don't absolutely love myself! :)

After waiting one week, what definitely is not a long time for a package that came all the way from the UK right here to Switzerland, I received my order today in a very shiny gold bag. After opening that really glamorous package, I found my bracelet wrapped in pink tissue paper.
I was browsing the site and I found a really cute bracelet that I just had to get it - The Sadia Bracelet with a gold feather.

This bracelet fits perfectly around my wrist and I absolutely love these white gemstone beads. It fits just right in my jewellery box. The whole ordering process was very simple and all things on their website are kind of girly, floral and quirky - there's definitely something for you too! I will definitely be buying some more jewellery from this company!

Have a look yourself at Prairie Charms.  Have a nice day :) xx

Tips for Back-to-School

Hello Everyone! For many the first day of school year has already started. If you are one of the lucky ones who begins a little later, you may still want some school tips to help make the first couple of school days easier.

Be organized. It's quite difficult to put everything in the right place when you're rushing between classes. So take some time to clean your backpack and binders. The less frustrated you're going to be, the easier it is to find what you need.

Be prepared for the first day. For me the first day its always a hectic day because I have to get from one class to another. So it's always important to be prepared. I always pack my school bag the day before school is going to start because I don't like rush in the morning. And I also like to go buy the things that I need to replace: my pencil case, some notebooks and a school calender. I always like to pick out a cute school bag to carry my items.

Be nice and smile. You should do this not only at the beginning of a new school year but all the year through. You'll make more friends, make others feel good just simply by smiling and being nice - Not only to other students but also to the teachers, secretaries, everyone around you. It's never wrong to be nice. :)

These were some of my all-time back to school tips. I hope you all a have great first day back to school or maybe these tips will help you for first day at work! :) Have a nice day! xx

Mint Nail Polish

Hello Everyone! This weeks nail polish is a really pretty blue-mint one. Lately I've been loving light blue nail polishes. I bought this nail polish during my holidays. I found it for €1.50 in a local store. I was really impressed because I thought it wouldn't be such a pretty color. It last really long and the color it's very similar to the Essie nail polish - Mint Candy Apple.

Which is your favorite blue-mint nail polish? Let me know!

Holiday Beauty Haul

Hey lovelies,
The time has past and I went shopping again but this time during my holidays.
I have always enjoyed reading these types of post, so hopefully you guys will enjoy reading this post too :)

First I went to Sephora. Where I live, in Switzerland,  there isn't any Sephora Store. That's why I was glad to read that in Portugal there are 12 Sephora stores.
I bought this contouring and blush palette for fair skin. You can choose the palette that will suit the best, there are 4 options to choose from. It contains a bronzer, a highlighter and a blusher. The palette is not too large so you can put in your bag.
And I finally have it! The They're Real! mascara from Benefit. Nearly every blogger owns one and I'm one of them :) I bought the Double The Real! package. The package contains a big one (8.5g) and a smaller one (4.0g). The price for both was only €24.90. If I only would buy the bigger one, it would cost me €25.90. 

And finally I went to KIKO. I own a few KIKO nail polishes and have to say their amazing! Not only the nail polishes, everything in their store. I found a really pretty nail polishes - the Sugar
mat for only €1.50.  I also bought two new brushes to add to my collection - A face brush and a round foundation brush. Both brushes are amazing!

Ever tried one of these products? What do you think? Tell me below!

July Beauty Favorites

Hi Everyone! The last month has past away so fast and now it's already August. The last month I was on holiday and  I didn't use much makeup. But these 4 products went with me on my holiday and I want to share them with you. So, without blabbing any further... here are my July favorites.
  Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder
I purchased this powder during my holiday and I love it. My skin is very oily, so this powder really makes my skin matte. I bought my skin tone based on what the package showed and it's the perfect shade for me.

BAYLIS & HARDING wild rose & raspberry leaf bath soak
I got this bath soak from my sister and it's nearly empty. I've used this so much the last month that I'm a bit obsessed now. It smells heavenly of rose and raspberry and I can't get enough.
It doesn't leave your skin dry after a relaxing bath and you smell amazing after you use it. Unfortunately it doesn't give the water a color but anyway, I LOVE this bath salt!
Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector
This is another purchase from my holiday. I never really was a fan of BB creams but this one changed my mind. I love the coverage it gives because it's not too heavy but it offers you a bit of color. One thing I dislike about this product is the finish, it's very shiny so I highly recommend to use a good matte powder (Rimmel Stay Matte Powder) :)
 Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation
This product is the one from the "How to look the best at everything - Kit " from Benefit. I wrote about it a while ago. I leave you the link here if you want to check it out.
I absolutely love this foundation and I took it with my on holiday because the package is so useful that I can carry it in my bag.

Ever tried one of those products? Do you have any beauty favorites this month? Let me know in the comments!
