I haven’t been loving a lot of beauty stuff this month and I only have a few favorites this month, but I was really depending on some items here in my favorites:
I. FILOFAX ORGANIZER
My first favorite is my filofax organizer. My phone was broken this month for two weeks and all my contacts, photos and so on were gone! Fortunately I have this organizer where all my appointments are written here too. That is why an organizer is better than a smartphone in such cases!

II. BURBERRY WATCH
Another item I was really depending on because of having no smartphone is my burberry watch. I always looked on my smartphone for checking the time when I was getting ready or was on my way to the metro, but this time I was so thankful that my mother bought me this watch 5 years ago! It is a classic watch and I love that I can mix it with every outfit, it is not too bold for me, but big enough to look cool on my tiny wrist.
III. STUDDED EARRINGS F21
I was ill the last couple of days and I didn’t feel like to dress me up on any occasions, that also included wearing some jewelry. So I just wore these simple studded earrings from Forever 21 – they look really cool and edgy to me. I also have them in silver and gold.
IV. DALE CARNEGIE – HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE
Because my phone was broken, I had to take a break from my evening ritual hanging on my phone in my bed until I’m going to sleep. It was good to read a book before bed and I always tried to do so but somehow I ended up on my phone anyway. Reading a book before sleeping lets me sleep better I think and I hope I can continue like that even when my phone is repaired.
The title of this book sounds like I desperately need some friends, but that’s not the case, it is about how to treat people the right way and how to behave ‘better’ in a society. This book is very good so far, I haven’t finished it yet, but there will be a more detailed blogpost about it soon! This book also showed up on the list of 25 books for success on the first place on success.com, which is a great website!
V. TOMBOW BRUSH PEN + HEART HOLE PUNCHER
I also had more time this month to do more hand lettering and I ordered the tombow brush pen from Japan. It wasn’t exactly the one I expected because I watched some youtube videos and the people used a different one. But I love this one so much better than the ending calligraphy pen in my February Favorites. My friend and I attended a flee market last week and we decided to create some cards to sell them. It was lots of fun to create them and we loooove all those designs we created. I was the one who wrote on the card and she was the one who drew these cute figures- because she can’t write beautifully and I can’t draw. I’ve always dreamt about a little stationery shop where I can sell cute notebooks, cards and other stuff, maybe this is the beginning?
VI. NIVEA MEN AFTER SHAVE BALSAM
I know I am a little bit too late, but never late than never! I also jumped on the train and wanted to know if the hype about using a after shave for men is really a good primer. And it is truly an amazing primer !!! I haven’t used any other primer for my face since I discovered this trick. I am very dry around my eye area and oily in my t-zone and all the primers I have been using before could only solve one of my two problems. But this one here is my holy grail product now ! You have to massage it really well into your skin but a little goes a long way ! My make up lasted for hours and my eye area wasn’t caky and my T-zone didn’t blend anyone because of its shining. I would also recommend you to wait for one or two minutes before applying your foundation on it. It costs only about 5-6 Euros and is really worth it and you get a huge bottle for this price!
VII. TREND IT UP ULTRA MATTE LIPCREAM 045
I have FINALLY found my perfect nude! And my wish came true when I was saying in my last post in my Favorite Drugstore Lip Products, that I hope trend it up would come up with more colors from their matte lipcreams range. I bought three shades, but this one is my favorite ! Because my skin is more yellowish I always find it hard to find the perfect nude, but this is it! For me it is like a dupe for the velvet teddy from MAC. I just believe that Kylie Jenner made nude lips so trendy again 😉
There weren’t a lot of beauty favorites this month, but I still hope you found some inspirations for other occasions!
