New In February ~ A Haul post

Hello my darlings. I'm back. I haven't written anything in the past two weeks of being home, because I did not feel like it. Coming back home hit me pretty hard. I was warned that this will happen after my Erasmus exchange ends, but you do not really realise how hard it hits you until you experience it on your own skin. The first week was pretty hard and I still have bad mornings and evenings (during the day I occupy myself with million things), but seeing all my friends really helps, I am tons thankful for them. Plus me and my BF started looking for a flat (baby steps, slow, wonky baby steps, but nevertheless, we are doing it), which, even if we are only discussing our options at this point, gives me an idea that being on our own isn't THAT far away. Oh yes, and of course I need to finish my studies. Small thing. ;) All in all I am not in a bad place. But I miss Bratislava like hell, every thing about it. My flat, my awesome flatmate, my room, walking in the old town ... just about everything.

Enough with the yammering, yes? I will show you the goodies I received in the past month, also to show you what is to come on the blog in March.

Group photo!

Review stuff from OMG and Born Pretty Store, nail polish, skin care, hair care (going nuts about my hair care!) ... I tried to put the purple scarf to break the whiteness under the products, and failed.

This being a nail polish blog in its essence, let's begin with nail stuff. Two nail stripes from OMG, I am looking forward to trying them, and a bunch of goodies from Born Pretty Store that I am super excited to try!! Especially the foil, I have never tried that technique, so I am curious. 

I bought one nail polish from new Catrice line, mainly because of the name: Berry Potter & Plumbledore. COME ON, HOW AWESOME IS THAT?! Plus the colour is amazing as well, epic win! I am wearing it right now and love it, I need to show it to ya ASAP.

Lately I am going nuts about hair products. My hair is getting pretty long and is at this point pretty damaged, so I need to visit a hairdresser pronto. L'Oreal Leave-In Spray I got from my flatmate and it is amazing stuff. Smells like heaven and it really works wonders on the hair, they look so much nicer, fall really nicely, they don't tangle ... perfect stuff. I do not think we can get it in Europe, which is a pity (let me know if we can, please!)

Subrina's Hair Code I also got as a gift, it is a two-faze shine serum. I used it once, but it looks promising, it did not grease up my hair. 

Got2b anti-frizz lotion again I got from my flatmate (she cut her hair completely short, so she does not need the products anymore), and it is pretty neat stuff, you just need to be careful not to overload it as it does get your hair greasy fast. Smells like grapefruit, sometimes i like it, sometimes I don't. 

Estee Lauder travel set for very dry skin, alas it does not suit me (my skin is combination to greasy, so it is a no-go), but my mother will love it. 

Essence eyeshadow brush from the new LE. I actually bought another one after testing this one, I love it so much. I regret not buying the smaller one too, but it went superfast. I bought this one off completely full stand in the afternoon, came back next day around noon and it was basically empty. Girls work fast!

A set of Aldo Vandini Olive & Granatapfel with a gorgeous bag. A good friend of mine surprised me with this, and it smells amazing, I already tried all of them. The set contains body peeling, body milk, hand creme and travel sized shower gels. Love them! And the bag is perfect for my purse!

And an additional photo of a present my girls brought me in Bratislava. I framed it the other day for my room here in Ljubljana, and remembered I haven't even shown it on the blog. It is perfect for moi. :)

Coffee and Lord of the Rings? Yes please!

What did you get for yourself lately? Oh, and of course, if you wish to see a detailed review of anything in the haul posts, all you need to do is ask in the comments. :)

Thank you for reading and commenting!
