Manicure Monday: MeMeMe Pensive


This week's manicure is made using MeMeMe Nail Collection Long Lasting Gloss in Pensive, which is a light blue with a tinge of green. The colour is similar to Maximillian Strasse-Her. I prefer the Maximillian shade though, as I think it is a little bit mintier. To get a nice opaque finish, you need three coats.

The manicure was actually with another colour on the thumbs, but it chipped, so I decided to only show you Pensive. I'll probably try the effect with other colors soon, it is a little bit like the ombré nails that were in last year or the previous one, but using only 1 other similar shade on one nail.

Do you like pale nail polish? Do you also notice that you always tend to gravitate towards the same shades?

Sunday's Stuff I Like


Another week with ups and downs. Seriously, I can't wait for some sunshine, the weather here is just so depressing! Snow, rain and more snow!

I started to work again this week! A good thing, so I'm feeling useful. Especially with this weather, as I cannot work on my painting and restoration project yet.

I got my hair cut on Thursday! And I also dyed it. I'm not really fond of the colour though, I will have to work on that, but I like the haircut! Such a change from my long hair, but I don't regret it, even though I liked my long hair.

Yesterday my mum and I went to a zumbathon that a local hairdresser organized to raise funds for charity. It was fun and I sweat a lot! Nobody wanted to come with me. That's typical, there's not a lot going on an then when the're something nobody wants to to it. Really this gets me down. Then my mum decided she's come, and she was so into it, I told here I knew she's love it!

That's about it. This week is probably going to be a hard one as we'll have to put our dog to sleep. He has arthritis, and can barely walk anymore, and just sleeps all day. I just keep on praying one day before we make the call that I'll wake up and he'll be his normal self, but chances are slim.

Hope you are having a better time, sorry for the last bit, I don't want to bring down anybody but Félix is just such a good dog and I'll miss him so bad.

#whomademyclothes


This is something I'm going to do today!

Today is Fashion Revolution Day, an awareness day to challenge fashion brands to "demonstrate commitment to transparency across the length of the value chain, from farmers to factory workers, brands to buyers and consumers".

Fashion is the most labor dependent industry in the world, as one is 6 people work along the supply chain. Most of them do so in execrable conditions. 

On that note, Fashion Revolution Day marks the 2nd anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Dhaka, Bangladesh, which killed 1133, and injured over 2500 people.

Do yo know who made your clothes? 

Today, fashion lovers are asked to take a selfie of their clothes tagging the brands and using the hashtag  #whomademyclothes. They can then share the response with their followers. @Fash_Rev will also host a series of fashion "takeovers" to connect supporters and fashion brands.

Last year, tens of thousand of people took part in the Fashion Revolution Day in 66 countries.This year, the organisers are expecting even more!
