Watercolours

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Spring beauty and fashion has been popping up. I've been seeing a lot of blues, greens, pinks and neutrals in beauty collections. Especially eye shadows. I've saved a lot of money, because blue & green eye shadows don't look very good on me. Eye liner? It depends. Nail lacquer? It depends. So instead of taking risks, I purchased the green dress below. I simply transferred my energy from beauty to fashion ;) I came across some other cool things while browsing online. Happy to share them with you! When I look at these colors, they remind of water color paintings, Oscar Claude Monet and Girl Scout uniforms. Did you know Yankee Candle has a Girl Scout Candle Collection? Why YES! You can now get a thin mint, trefoil, etc. candle :) This will definitely save you calories from eating the cookies! You can thank me later ;)

Oh what a good buy, that dress is lovely! Really nice shade too. I like the Dior polish as well! :)

back when I was more into makeup I had loads of blue polishes! Now every time I get a makeover they give me gold or brown, so if I was to buy a set again those would be the colours I'd go for instead. :)

Talking about green, I'm happy this color is going to stay this year. I started liking it since mid of last year. I've a few dresses in green and I'm glad you feature this color today =) I'm going to check out the Dior nail lacquer. Looks interesting =D

I am not usually one for spring fashion, as it just gets muddy, and stays cold here. But these colors are beautiful! That nail polish, and that candle are perfection too!

Shireen L. Platt said...

Green is actually one of my favourite colour, I love using it on my nails however, I only have a couple of clothes in green. No idea why I don't buy more green clothes, maybe I don't want to prance around like a Asian leprechaun? LOL!
You choose some great items here, Kim and gosh, I am in love with that trench coat!

I'm ready for some spring colours after this long winter! This is a lovely shade of green and I like your selection. I was a Girl Guide so I think I ought to find out more about the candle collection! I'm seeing a lot of pastels in the shops over here too.

Green has never been my favorite color until recently. I don't really have many items in green for that reason. I do love the rich green color though, very pretty. I am with you on the blue/green eye shadows, Kim. They don't look good on me either.

Rebeca Muñoz López said...

Is a pretty color Kim! Great purchase!

This color is so gorgeous! I want that trench coat. :) They never go out of style.

Cee said...

There aren't many shades of green I really like wearing - actually, olive probably sums it up, in both make-up and clothing. Sounds like I may be saving some money from my beauty budget this season, too!

Green is one of my favorite colours, but not to wear. I do like it on my nails and I have got a few eyeshadows in different hues but I've never actually used them. And by that I mean not taken them out on the town.

this is a gorgeous dress...and I'm sure it looks great on you.

I think that blue (or green) eyeshadow doesn't look very flattering on me either!
