Kylie’s Lip Kit

0 Permalink

Saturday already! I really wanted to post earlier this week, but – surprise, surprise – was caught up with business and studying once again. At the end of last week I finally received the lip kits from Kyle Cosmetics. I have always been wondering how these products are – if it’s really good quality as always talked about or rather a hype because, well, it’s Kylie after all. It all started rather dramatically, however, when I went to the post office in full agony to receive the package. I knew it had to be the Kylie packet – after all, it was the only thing I had ordered from the States that time around and was the only one I understood why I had extra customs costs (thank you, Switzerland – not!). Best part of the story, though, is that they lost the package. They couldn’t find it and left me standing without anything to take home that night, though promising me that they would search and call me later that day. Already purchasing these products was harder than ever imagined. All products seem to be sold-out constantly. Kyle oftentimes announces a re-stock, but I usually only see it the next day (due to the time differences). So annoying! Until, one night late after studying, I saw that she had just made a new annoucement – and, I was lucky! I was able to purchase all three matte liquid lipstick & lip liner kits I so desperately wanted to try myself: Dolce K, Candy K, and Koko K.

Those of you that know me personally and those that follow my snapchat, know that I love both Candy K and Koko K! Both are ridiciously good at covering up, are a perfect matte, stay on for hours, do not dry out your lips and are perfect nudes to combine with almost every outfit. I still haven’t had a chance to wear the Dolce K in public, as it is quite a bit darker and rather for the evening (in my opinion). Speaking of evening, I might get the chance to wear it tonight, when I am hopefully going out for dinner (and if not, I will order something, for sure!).

The past days, as I’ve mentioned, have been rather busy. Next week isn’t any quieter. I will be traveling to Geneva on Monday through to Wednesday for business, and will be flying to Germany (Düsseldorf) on Thursday. There I will be with the family until Sunday night. Friday my sis has her high school graduation and we are planning on a lovely dinner high up in the sky! Can you guess where? I’ll try to take pictures, even if it is dark, though surely you can follow all happenings on snapchat. Until then, however, and very important as well: the EM has started! Although I am not the greatest soccer fan on a daily, and I do not watch every match and every league, I am beyond excited to (hopefully) see Germany play and succeed in the following weeks. Tomorrow’s first game is against Ukraine. Cross fingers! Though, of course, I will be fair and agree that the better shall win!

With that, I wish you lovely continuing Saturday! Stay tuned on snapchat to receive daily updates. xo

Goodbye 2014; Welcome 2015

Happy New Year everyone! It’s amazing how fast time passes – 2014 is officially over and 2015 has started. I love the saying ‘you’ve got an empty book of 365 pages ahead of you (well, 364 now) and it’s in your hands to write the story.’ If you think about it, it really is us – we are the ones writing our own books, creating paths we want to follow and living the life we want to. At least, that is what I try on a daily basis.

If I look back to the beginning of 2014, 12 months ago, it seems that the year has ended too fast. On the other hand, so much has happened and I have enjoyed almost all of it. Yes, there have been little ups and downs but really, it’s been a great year. I have moved from Hamburg to Zurich, went from an internship position to a full-time job, started StylePhantom, met some amazing people, people that I will surely keep in my heart forever, have travelled and seen different places. 2014 has been a good year for me and I am keen on making 2015 an even more prosperous, an even more exciting, and more fulfilling year than 2014 has been.

I have so many little plans for this upcoming year, so many larger, great ones too. I want to travel, I have picked out places already, I have personal projects, I have plans for changing my apartment a little and I am so excited to making all these things happen – to sharing them.

Then, of course, there is so much I do not know. I don’t know what exactly will happen in 2015, I don’t know who I’ll be meeting next, what other projects I’ll be starting and what projects I’ll be finishing. I have no clue for so many things and the great thing is, I am so happy to be in the unknown sometimes. I love waking up and planning ahead of time and then having to throw over all my plans for something else. I love discovering each day by the day, each hour by the hour!

I am absolutely looking forward to this year and I surely will be writing my own little book – excited to fill in the next 364 days. And, obviously – wishing you the most prosperous year with the most breath-taking moments. xo
