Color Club Halo Hues: Blue Heaven Nail Lacquer Review, Photos, Swatches

(With camera flash)
The first ever holo nail polish I got was a month ago. Gosh Holographic Hero (review here). And since I was just a tiny bit disappointed by it as it wasn`t as holographic as I expected, I was continuing in a search for a perfect one. And the one I got now is exactly what I was looking for!!!
I`ve heard about this Halo Hues collection by Color Club since last summer. I was really looking forward to it, as it was pretty hard to find good holographic polishes (because it`s considered kind of old fashioned..), but now it`s pretty much back! The color I got from this collection is Blue Heaven, and it`s kind of a light blue (and holographic of course). It`s beautiful!! I just love it! You can compare it with the Gosh one on my post about it.. The only problem with it is that it chipped very very easily and quickly just a day after I have applied it.. I understood that this is kind of the main problem with holo nail polishes, that no brand seems to find a solution to it just yet (please correct me if I'm wrong!). I did applied a top coat on top of it for the second attempt, but it looks like it made it to loose some of it's "holographicness" and now it looks just like a multi-glitter-a-little-holographic nail polish.. Which sucks. But we'll see how long it will last now.
Anyways, the pictures speak for themselves: :)

And in case you ask yourself how it looks NOT under light, or just in a pretty dark room.. It's just a pretty metallic light blue color. Which is not bad :)

OOTD: Neon Afternon

Another look with my lovely eyeglasses from Firmoo. If you haven't entered my GIVEAWAY of $20 voucher for (25 winners), then do it now by clicking here.
I got this neon orange sweater from my MIL (Mother in law). And as it is very bright and... noticeable? I decided to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple.. Black leggings and boots and glasses.
Neon is more of a range of colors we tend to wear during the summertime. And I do think it's more appropriate for summer. But I also don't like these "rules" about when to wear what.. You have to admit it is kind of fun to bring some color into the cold weather ;) Especially with this beautiful orange sunset we've had here in Toronto, I thought it was pretty suitable! :)

OOTD: Winter's Coming

Winter is almost here.. And I'm pretty scared because It's gonna be my first real, cold, Canadian winter here X_X We'll see how I'll survive haha!
It's getting colder and colder outside.. Today I wore my favorite stripes sweater (which is one of the clothing pieces that were my mom's back in the days, and now it's mine, because she doesn't wears this anymore.. yay :P) And I love it! On top I wore my black jacket and paired it with my black skinny pants and my military style boots. The black clutch added a little feminine note to all of this :)
Also, today we have discovered that apparently, Alex is a "squirrel whisper" haha. Really! He knows how to call them! He makes this noise, and they ran to us, and stop on their back legs and just stare at us! So cute ^_^

Jacket: Sektor Town
Pants: D&G
(All the other stuff are either gifts, either I don't remember where I got them)

Holiday Gift Guide: Sigma Gifts Under $60!

The holiday season is approaching, and we all need to buy some gifts :) If not for others, then for ourselves :P (We do need to treat ourselves for the new year, right? a new year with a new beauty product! :))
I love buying gifts for my loved-ones, and see their reaction! This is one of the best parts in the holidays, in my opinion! :)
As you all know, Sigma is TRULY one of my very favorite beauty brands! (I wouldn't talk so much about it unless I loved it that much). And one of the best parts about this brand is the reasonable and affordable prices you pay for a very high end, great quality products that last for a long time!
So today I've found some good deals for great gifts for Christmas for you family and friends, for under $60!!! :D YAY! Now it's up to you to decide if you are going to divide the sets I've combined here for 2-3 people (or more), or just gift it all to one! :)

Here we go:

1. Dry 'n Shape ($32) + One of the MAXBags (in a discount price of $25 instead of $29). And you can choose a baby blue one, or a black one.

2. Spa Solutions ($32) + One of the heart shaped mirrors (in a discount price of $22 instead of $25), which come in a variety of colors and designs.

3. The limited edition Paris palette alone ($59), or you can use a coupon code for $10 off, from one of the beauty gurus that participated in the making of this palette ($49) + One eye brush of your choice ($10).

4. Eyes kit ($57, instead of a full price of $74, if buying those brushes individually).

5. The Extravaganza body brush ($42) +

But these are just the tip of the ice when it comes to choices for cheap gifts from Sigma. They are just some of the options I personally think would be cute as a gift :) You can find lots and lots of more different combinations for under $60 and even under $40. Just visit and search for your best choice! :)

I love all of these sites where you can share your style and collect things you like in one place on the web, without the need to download it to your computer and take too much space.
I was contacted by one of the people from a new site like that which is called "LookSoup", and was invited to check out their site (with no obligation to talk about it on my blog or something). reminds me of like a combination of LookBook, Pinterest, and Fashiolista.
In this site you get a button for your Bookmarks (similar to the ones in Pinterest and Fashiolista), with which you can "collect" things from anywhere on the web, into "collections" on LookSoup. (like the boards on Pinterest). You can also collect things from other poeple on LookSoup. Then you have a "Like" button on each of the pictures you collect. You get points each time someone is "Liking" one of your pictures, or decides to follow you on LookSoup, and the more points you get, the more your pictures will hold on the top of the homepage of LookSoup (Simillar to LookBook). You can collect only fashion related items (like on Fashiolista).
So if you like all of these networks, but it's hard for you to keep it up on ALL of them, and you would like to have an account on a network that is like a combination of them all (or if you just want another one..), then LookSoup is probably for you!

Click on the image bellow t check out MY profile and collections on LookSoup, and/or if you'd like to follow me :)

And don't forget to visit my profiles on LookBook, Pinterest and Fashiolista as well! :)

OOTD: Leaves

Loooong time, no OOTD again... It's just that the winter came too fast, and I didn't really had time to even go through my winter clothes X_X
Today was a little bit more of a "warm" day, if you can even call it like that.. But I could skip my coat, so that's good :) I went for a simple style of a off-white sweater, and gray jeans. I have accessorized with my Tory Burch bag, my new lovely glasses from Firmoo (you can read a full review here, and get a FREE pair as a new costumer, by clicking here), and Alex's scarf! :)

Jeans: Tamnoon
Scarf: Pull and Bear
Bag: Tory Burch
