Summer lovin' TAG

I received this tag from one of my fellow bloggers Mihaella - Beauty corner for woman. I found it very cute and even if summer comes to end I decided to answer the questions.

1. Which is your favorite lipstick this summer?

I don't use lipsticks, I usually wear lip gloss and my favorite ones are both from  Yves Rocher - Raspberry Fruity Jelly Lip Gloss and  Sexy Pulp Lip-gloss in Rose Vif.


 2. Which is your favorite polish this summer?

Well, extremely hard question, because I have a lot that I like and it is very difficult for me to choose just one. But let's say that I like the most my Jade polishes. I wore Magia and Delirio Rosa on my vacation, you can see it here. They are holo polishes, I am very big fan of them and they reflect the sunshine beautifully! So, in my opinion they are perfect for summer!




3. Which is your favorite  swim wear for this summer?

I am not a big fan of bikinis and I swim a lot so the swimsuit that I wore this summer it is from Arena and it is the most comfortable one that I ever had.


4. Which is your favorite Frappuccino from Starbucks?  

Ohhhh, this is my area. I love Starbucks, any kind of coffee or drinks, even if I am not allowed to drink them, I buy them now and then as a treat. The last one that I enjoyed was the Mocha Coconut. 


5. Which is your favorite self-tenner?

I don't have one and I think I don't need one. I have a darker skin tone and in the summer it gets darker and darker even if I am not standing at the sun. Let's say I am a lucky woman!

6. Which is your favorite summer song?

Each summer I had a song that caught my attention, but this year nothing, really nothing that I kept in my mind. I like very much Ed Sheeran - I see fire, I have it as a ringtone on my phone, but I prefer any kind of music. This summer I was at two jazz concerts and an outdoor opera concert and until the season will be finished I am sure I will attend many many more concerts!   


7. Which is your favorite summer accessory?

I never go out without my watch, but this is not quite just a summer accessory. So, my favorite summer ones are the earrings, necklaces and bracelets shown bellow and the white bag from Carpisa that I bought last month!


8. Which is your favorite summer perfume?

This summer I wore two perfumes the most of the time. One of them is Yves Rocher - Naturelle and the other one is Zara White. I usually wear fresh perfumes, it doesn't mater in what period of the year we are!


9. Which is your favorite summer book?

Summer book? I don't know if I can categorize my books for seasons. But I am reading now the 50 Shades of Gray trilogy, and I absolutely love it! 

10. What do you want to do the most this summer?

I would like to travel a lot, but this year I had just 10 day off so I was together with my family in Hungary. But in general I want to enjoy summer and the sunshine, I want to load my self with energy because this period of time is very short and of course I want to relax as much as possible!   

Done :) I would be glad to read the answers for this questions for any one of you who like to do this tag, but I will tag four of you: Robin - Roaring Nails, Giovanna - GioNails,  Demi - Beauty and the Mist, Maria - Konad Addict.

I hope I didn't bored you with my answers, I tried to keep them short :) I wish you all a great summer with lost of sunshine and happiness!

Moyra Sea Salt

Does of you who follow me on Facebook know that I've posted a picture with polishes bought on my vacation, and the one from this post is one of them. Some of you wrote that are curious how the Moyra Sea Salt polish is, so I decided it to show it to you first.


Moyra Sea Salt - 883 Actinia intrigued me because of the beautiful pink shade and I was curious if the effect of it is the same like the salt. And I can tell you that it is, it has a fine texture thanks to the small white glitter particles in it. And the pink shade of it is so pretty and girly, don't you think? The formula was very easy to work with, I painted on my nails two coats, without a top coat and I enjoyed a great summer manicure.




Last weekend I was at a horse show with some great and talented archers from Sfantu Gheorghe. I was so surprised how well trained, professional and brave these people are that I had to share with you some pictures. Hope you like them!








I live you with my girly manicure. 
Do you know this polish? Did you tried other colors from this collection? Which one is your favorite?

Tip Top Nails South Africa polish review

I received the below seen gorgeous polishes a few weeks ago to swatch and tell my opinion about it. I am sure many of you polish addicts know about Tip Top Nails South Africa, but does of you who hears about this brand for the first time I can assure you that you will see and read about an excellent product that is Vegan, Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP (Dibuthyl Phthalate) and Camphor FREE.


If you will visit Tip Top Nails site you will notice that they have an extensive range of carefully selected nail shades, problem solving nail treatments as well and they are introducing on a regular basis new polishes that are trendy and beautiful!

Today you will see three of the polishes Cream Puff, Night Rider and Calm Before the Storm (love the names) and the one with the sprinkle beads I will swatch it in a separate post!

Cream Puff -  is a fantastic clean white polish with a little bit of jelly finish. It is quite sheer so I had to apply three coats until it got totally opaque. The formula is easy to work with and goes on really smooth. The drying time is very impressive, I don't know if the ventilator I had in the room helped or not, but the drying time was bellow 5 minutes.




Night Rider - is a silver, almost metallic polish that gives that cool yet elegant look when it is applied on the nails. For this one I needed just two layers for being completely opaque. Like by all kind of metallic polishes the brush stokes are visible after the polish dried, by this one is no difference, but with a good top coat everything is evened out! In this case too, the dying time is fantastic!




Calm Before the Storm - is a hard to describe color, it is a mixture of soft blue and purple shades. I really think that the names suites it very good, because it really looks like the sky before a storm! It is applied in two coats and it dries to a shiny finish. 





I thought to mix these three polishes in a manicure because I think they look very good together. 






If you like these polishes you can go and check Tip Top Nails site, I am sure you are going to find beautiful colored polishes and like their Facebook page, this way you will be up to date with all the new arrivals! 


Tip Top Nails, thank you for the opportunity to try these great polishes! 


*I received these polishes in return for my honest review. All opinions are my own and I was not influenced my anyone.

Red cabbage tart

Before I went on my holiday I browsed Pinterest a little bit for healthy recipes and I found this one, with red cabbage.(www.mimithorisson.com). It is very easy to make and we have to keep in mind that red cabbage has 10 times more vitamin A and twice as much iron as green cabbage!

Ingredients:
1 whole wheat pastry
3/4 head red cabbage (shredded)
2 red onions (sliced)
1 tbsp thyme
2 tbsp vinegar
Handful of walnuts
Butter 
Salt and pepper to taste
Sour cream to serve


For the tart I used whole wheat and made it with my bread maker. I added some flax seeds to have a meal fool with omega-3 fatty acid content!


In a large pan, I melted the butter and frayed the red onions for about 5 minutes. After that I added the shredded red cabbage and continue frying for 5 more minutes, adding salt, thyme and pepper. I finished it with the 2 tbsp vinegar, reduced for 2 minutes. Set aside and prepare the tart.




Preheat your oven 180°C.
Line the tart dish with the pastry. Add the cabbage mixture, place the walnuts all over the tart and bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown.



Serve it with sour cream and if you like you can add parsley on it!





It doesn't need much time to prepare it and you have a healthy and delicious meal! Enjoy it if you make it!

Back from my vacation

Hello lovely ladies,

I am home after 10 days vacation, and I have no energy yet. I thought to show you my nails that I made before I went in holiday. I didn't had very much time, because I had to pack and I painted my nails quckly with two of my bellowed holo polishes from Jade - Delirio Rosa and Magia. I stamped one of my nails with a MoYou pattern, but because I was in a hurray it didn't came out well.




I spent my vacation in Hungary in different locations, I will show you some photos I made in Budapest and Tatabanya.


Budapest - Parlament
Chain Bridge Budapest

Tatabanya - the Turul monument
Fisherman's Bastion Budapest

And of course I can not finish this post without my vacation haul. O couldn't resist these beautiful polishes and some of them where on sale, so of course I had to buy them :)


And finally I have my Fifty shades of Gray trilogy. It was a bargain, I bought two of them and received as a gift the third one and another free book. Yeey, now I need the time to reed them all!
