Best of blog posts – autumn edition


Hello my dear Beauties.

Hope you are getting ready for the celebration, quality time with your loved ones, great food & music and just  lovely relaxing days!
I have been thinking about the community support these weeks, since it’s the season of giving and I decided to do a best of my reader, to share those awesome blog posts with you, that somehow inspired & motivated or just informed me about new and exciting products.
Hopefully you will enjoy as much as I did. Stop by to read these posts and support the amazing bloggers.

Grab a cup of your favorite hot chocolate and let’s get started.

First there is Nic at Strawberry Blond beauty blog and her great post about the The Best Winter Hand Creams. In general Nic writes a lot of interesting posts about natural makeup and skin care, along with incredibly tempting high end reviews. (She totally got me hooked on the Benefit Away we Glow palette…)
This particular post about her favorite hand creams came very much on time for me, as i was looking for a new winter hand & nail treatments and i think especially with Weleda she got the point for me. This post might be something for you if you’re like me – a hand cream  addict! 🙂

My next pick is going to be Nuala at Make up, Beauty, Shopping and her honest review on MUA Heaven and Earth Pallet.
We all are used to see blogger raving about products on the market, that aren’t really worth the hype. In this case Nuala managed to present the pros and cons about this drugstore palette. When i saw the swatches i knew it was the right one to try as my every day tool. I’m a big fan of metallic and shimmery eye shadows, so to see most of the shades in this one being shimmery and the colors from brownish to rusty, i knew it’s going to be one of my next buys. I want to see for myself how good the formulation is and if it’s worth the money. I mean, as Nuala was saying: “for £4.00 you really can’t go wrong”. 🙂                                     Stop by Nuala’s blog:  Make Up, Beauty, Shopping

Third blogger i would like to mentions is Bailey at Making Up the Midwest and her useful Review & Application: Kiss Ever PRO Lashes.
Bailey is a beauty blogger, who also makes youtube videos to present you all the awesome hair & makeup tutorials. I first discovered her blog, before i found her on youtube as well. This lash review made me personally think more about wearing beautiful lashes during the holiday season, as i’m not someone who wears them on a regular basis. But the Kiss Ever PRO kit looked fun and easy – it apparently comes with some funky looking tweezers, as Bailey mentioned: “Unlike a tweezer, however, this applicator has a larger point of contact so that you can press a larger portion of the lashes along the lash line, allowing you to work faster.” And the results spoke for itself, so thank you Bailey for reminding me to be more outgoing with my makeup decisions.                                     Find more beauty post’s by Bailey here: Making Up the Midwest

As all of us bloggers have not only to publish some great content, but make the actual blog look nice & easy to navigate for our readers, i have to mention my smart Donah at and her really useful post on How To: Drop-down List On Your Navigation Bar 
As for me, blogging is a whole new world and getting tips and tricks with step by step explication & pictures is a big relief for me and maybe some of you as well. It’s awesome to have a fellow beauty blogger being able to help you with the how to “prettify your blog the easy way” questions. Donah has done a few different posts on this subject, besides all the other beauty reviews and brand presentation.                                              Check out Donah’s blog: Sweetjellybean

My last but most definitely not least blog post pick is a tie between two of my favorite nail design bloggers. (Yes it was very hard to dicide!)
It’s Sabrina at and Amie at
Both of them create fun & season inspired nail art. If you feel like looking for creative inspiration for your next nail project, stop by these blogs and get your polish injection.

One of the best posts Sabrina made was Advent Calender Nail Challenge: Inspired by a Christmas Movie. I loved the detailed drawing of the Grinch so much. It’s definitely a big eye catcher and one of the coolest themes of the holiday season.              You can find more great design’s by Sabrina right here: Polish Alcoholic

Amie loves painting her nails, it’s a relaxing task to her and you can definitely tell she’s having fun from what you see on her amazing pictures. Her last post was one of her best so far ( in my opinion) – a Christmas inspired stamping design in red, green and metallic – Nail Diary #126 I just loved the combination of color & design on her nails. Btw, thanks Amie for reminding me to put China Glaze on my wishlist for the next year. I have to finally try their polishes!                    Stop by Amie’s blog and look for more creative nail artAm1e’s Nail Diary

I hope you all enjoy doing some blog hopping and getting to know these inspiring blogger.  
And please share your favorite autumn & winter blog posts with me. Either your own or of the other beauties out there.
