Hallo Deutschland!




I'm back in beautiful old Germany! :)

I'm really happy to be back. The first and best moment was when my husband and I left the airport and smelled the fresh, crisp air!

Around six days after arrival, we surprised my mom in front of the door in my old hometown.  Now she is happy to have us back.

We will stay here for approximately three good years. Tampa in Florida wasn't what we thought it would be and I hope that I will have a better future here.

After a long hunt for finding a nice house we finally found one. Now we only wait until our furniture arrives here and then I'm ready to start a new chapter in my life.

Photo Diary: Wat Phra Sri Sanphet in Ayutthaya, Thailand

My family and I were back in Bangkok. My last destination was Ayutthaya and its Historical Park which is one of Thailand's main attraction for tourists.

We took the train to get there. On the way I enjoyed watching the beautiful scenery of Thailand. It was a nice experience. We arrived around afternoon time. I highly recommend to bring anything that protects you from the sun and cools you down. It can be blistering hot and humid. So bring a hat or an umbrella, sunglasses, sunscreen, and plenty of water.

The Historical Park of Ayutthaya had many temple ruins. We chose to visit Wat Phra Sri Sanphet. It was built by King Boromma Trailokkanat for royal ceremonies and rituals in 1448.


Three impressive chedis right near the entrance were built for the ashes of the royal family members.


Later in 1767 the whole temple was burned down and destroyed by Myanmar invaders.


They also destroyed lots of religious Buddha statues, broke off their precious heads and arms, and melted off all the gilded gold.


This is a model of what the royal temple originally looked like.



When I walked through all the ruins I realized how much they have destroyed.  I wonder what the other ruins look like. Each one of the temple is full of history.


This was my last my post about my trip to Thailand.  I will plan on coming back to explore more about this wonderful country. There is just so much to see and it feels so good to visit my relatives and spent time with them. See you soon :) 

P.S Happy Songkran Day!

Vassen Fynale Naomi Blue and Angel Key Little Devil Liquid Liner

It's been a long time since I reviewed any circle lenses. Due to my busy working schedule though I never was able to create any. Now a have time again and want to show you my new Vassen Fynale Naomi Blue review kindly sponsored by Loveshoppingholics:



RATINGS

Design
 ★★★★
These lenses are more sheer than opaque. You can see the iris underneath them.
The vibrant blue color design gives your eyes an ice crystal effect
and the subtle brown color helps to blend in with your natural eye color.

Enlargement

You definitely can see a noticeable enlargement. I recommend wearing eye make up,
because without it, it might look very unnatural on you.  

Comfort
★★:
Can not say anything bad about it.
 They are super comfortable thanks to the high water content.

Overall
 ★★:
Due to the big enlargement these lenses give you dreamy dolly eyes.
I wish they were a little bit more opaque, but I still love the design and the effect though.

Did you like the liquid eyeliner on my eyes in the pictures above?
This was also kindly sponsored from Loveshoppingholics :


 Information:
Brand: Angel Key
Effect: For bigger looking eyes
Made in: Taiwan
Suitable For: All Skin Types
MFG: Date subject to product received.
Approximately lasts up to 3 years.


Thoughts of the packaging?
Very cute and colorful design. I'm a total fan when cosmetic products come in lovely packaging.

Thoughts of the design?
A simple blue colored pen with a black printed design. It is very handy and fits great in every make up bag. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out the story behind the name of this product.


How is the texture and color intensity ?
The liquid is not watery and dries quickly when applied. It's opaque and far away from sheer. The color looks intense and pigmented.

How easy to apply and remove?
The application is very smooth and gives you the finest lines thanks to the soft and 1.0 mm thin brush. A great eyeliner pen for beginners. The color doesn't run and it works great on oily skin.
When you have a good make up remover it comes off very easily.

Staying power?
I did the test by going to a theme park riding roller coasters all day and one time I even got water splashed in my face and my eyeliner surprisingly didn't fade. Since everyone has different skin types, different results may occur. I can proof that its long lasting but I don't think it's waterproof.

Will I purchase it again?
Oh definitely yes. This will be my favorite everyday eyeliner for my cat eyes now. I rather splurge on this and get great results.
