You know you're busy when you realize you forgot to share a video you published more than a week ago. Oopsie! It's a Q&A one and might be interesting to those of you curious about my new life and my experiece of moving abroad all by myself. I'm thinking about doing one Q&A video a month, so if you have any questions for me, please leave them below.

Can we just call these game changers? I've never been much of a lip liner kind of gal until I discovered Milani's 'Nude' Color Statement Lip Liner a few months ago, but when Kiko's Smart Lip Pencils made their way into my makeup drawer, my new obsession reached a whole new level. I can't get enough of them! They are every makeup lover's dream - cheap as chips, yet of excellent quality. They go on very smoothly, don't dry your lips out, provide the matte finish everyone's been loving this past season and last ALL DAY. Believe it or not, they can even survive meals. Tried and tested. I currently have three shades (710, 706 & 705) that I wear either on their own or paired with lipsticks, but I think it's safe to say there will be many more joining the collection as soon as I get a job and have money for things like makeup again. I don't know whether I should thank my friend Joanna for introducing me to these or kill her for making me spend money on something that is not rent or food. I have a bad feeling about this. I feel like I'll just walk into Kiko one day and buy the whole line. Cuz I'm crazy like that...
|710 Rouge Noir|
|706 Classic Red|
|705 Bright Geranium|
Have you by any chance tried these? Are there any shades I need to get sooner than the others? Right now, my favourite one is 710 Rouge Noir, which by the way goes perfectly with my 'Rebel' lipstick by MAC, but since spring is coming up quite soon, I feel like I should start looking for something brighter.

After weeks of living in the central London bubble and not exploring any unknown areas, I finally turned my tourist mode on again. Lu and I decided to go check out Broadway Maket, and ended up exploring Hackney. The area doesn't have the best reputation, but it isn't as bad as it might seem at first sight. I'm not going to lie, I did have a bit of a weird feeling about it when I first stepped off the train. It looked very industrial and creepy, but once we started walking up the Regent's Canal and made it to Victoria Park, it was like a whole different world. As it turns out, even 'the dark side' of London has its charms. I took lots of footage, so don't forget to watch my weekly vlog below, in which I'm also talking about more bank problems, my internship promotion and trash bags full of makeup.

Last week definitely started on a good note. Or should I say ended? The week before last? This Sunday to Saturday weekly vlog schedule is making me really confused. But that's beside the point. The main point is the brunch I had at Belsize Park's Ginger & White, a cute little coffee shop definitely worth a visit. It was delish and very photogenic. I was one very happy instagrammer to say the least. To see how it looked like and what else has been going on in my life, click the play button below.
