Catrice Welcome to Las Vegas Lashes for Show Down

Recently Catrice came out with a new limited edition called Welcome to Las Vegas, inspired by the extravagant glitter and glamour in Las Vegas. I only bought one thing from this collection, the Lashes for Show Down. These lashes so looked nice and wispy and they were only 3,99 so I couldn't resist the temptation to buy them. They come in a small plastic case with little tube of glue inside, which I'm not sure of if it works properly. Most of the time the glue that comes with cheap fake lashes isn't of good quality. I'm not sure yet if I will wear these lashes soon or I will just put them in the back of my drawer and save them for a special occasion, because these are definitely not the most natural-looking lashes.

Did you buy anything from the Catrice Welcome to Las Vegas Collection?

Movie Madness # 1 Sucker Puch, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, Friends With Benefits

I love watching movies, especially now it's getting colder it's so nice to stay inside and watch a movie. These are the movies I've seen lately and what I think of them.

Sucker Punch (2011)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
With: Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens and Abbie Cornish
IMDB rating: 6.2

You have to understand the fine line between fantasy and reality to appreciate this movie. In this movie there's the reality, a sub-reality and a fantasy that are parallel to each other. After the death of her mother and sister the young girl nicknamed ''Babydoll'' (fantastically played by Emily Browning) is institutionalized by her stepfather. There she will undergo a lobotomy in five days' time. She retreats into a fantasy world, where she and four other girls plot to escape from the mental asylum. With the help of a mysterious guide they fight to find the five items they will need to break free. I absolutely love this movie so much, I've watched it four times this month. On top of that I've been listening to the soundtrack a lot, the music really compliments the movie. The movie also has a lot of memorable quotes, my favourite one is:
''If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything'' - Wiseman.

I heart nerds David & Goliath Hoodie

Every time when I'm in London I have to buy something from David & Goliath, they make such funny stuff. Before this visit to London I had only bought pyjamas, but hardly anyone sees me in my pyjamas so this time I wanted to buy something I could also wear outside the house and since I love wearing hoodies, because they're so comfortable and warm, I bought a hoodie with the text I heart nerds. Now I usually don't like wearing grey since it makes my skin look ashy, this shade of grey actually looks good on me. What I really like about this hoodie is the print in the lining, those hearts are so adorable! It wasn't a very cheap hoodie, I paid £39.00 for it, but I don't regret it at all. This hoodie is so warm and comfortable, just perfect for those lazy days when you don't feel like putting much effort in how you look.

When I was in London I picked up a Barry M Nail Paint in the shade Indigo because I read some really positive reviews on Barry M Nail Paints on the internet. As far as I know Barry M is only available in the United Kingdom. The polish applies reallt smoothly and is completely opague in just 2 coats. I absolutely love this colour, I haven't seen anything like it before.

OPI goes Dutch with the OPI Holland collection

I got very exited when I read that the OPI spring 2012 collection will be a collection inspired by The Netherlands. Most of the names are based on a city or something people associate with The Netherlands and of course there is a gorgeous orange shade in the collection.

The colours from left to right:
Top row: Gouda Gouda Two Shoes, Wooden Shoes Like to Know It, I Don't Give a Rotterdam, A Roll In The Hague, Petal Faster Suzi, Dutch Ya Just Love OPI.

Bottom row: Thanks a WindMillion, Red Lights Ahead...Where?, Kiss Me On My Tulips, Vampsterdam, I Have a Herring Problem, & Did You Hear About Van Gogh?

I already found a website with swatches of this collection. I think I will buy something from this collection since I am from The Netherlands. There is one colour that definitely stands out to me: Vampsterdam. The colours will be available around March, so I guess I will probably post an update on this collection by then.

Are you exited for this collection too?
