Ciaté London Goodiebag

Last week I went to an event with Ipsy OS and Ciaté London.  We got to see all the fun makeup as well as try them. But honestly, I didn’t even know that Ciaté had makeup until now I just thought that it was nailpoilishes that they made. They released their makeup line last year, but how could I have missed this?! I was shook. Anyhow, lets dig into the goodie bag and se what I got! Also, I will link all the items down at the end if there is something that you liked and found interesting so you can shop them!

First of all, I got this amazing makeup bag in which all of the stuff fitted. It has a cute little quote on it; “Put on your lipstick and hustle”. Also we got the magazine The glossip that Ciaté releases a few times per year, and a matching notebook that has a gorgeous velvet cover. (Im obsessed with velvet).

The first two of the bigger items that I got in the goodie bag were the BIKINI BODY BALM Body Illuminator and also the Makeup Melter Murumuru Makeup Remover Balm. The Illuminator is super settle, at lest that was my opinion as I tried it at the event. I have not tried it in daylight so it might show up a little better in a different light. The makeup remover is the BOMB. It’s a super light balm that just melts instantly and removes the makeup so easily. This will definitely go on my makeup counter right away. img_5511

Next we’re moving on to eye makeup. We got the Chisel Liner High Definition Tip Eyeliner which I find very different because the tip has a flat side to help creating a flawless wing. We also got the Wonderwand Intensely Volumising Mascara and  I am obsessed with the design of this mascara. For the eyes we also got one of their eyeshadow palettes. This on is The Fearless Eyeshadow Palette. I didn’t swatch or try the eyeshadow palettes too much so I don’t really have an opinion on them quite yet. But I do really like the pigments and they re really smooth and creamy. I just had to show you the inside of the palette as well, how cute is it?img_5514

Lastly we got some lip products and also a fun new nail polish pen if you will. I didn’t really try any of these products at the event on my lips but I did swatch them and they looked beautiful! Bright in red is the Liquid Velvet™ – Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Fast Lane. Then we also got one of the Pretty Stix Murumuru Butter Lipstick and the one I got was in the shade Innocent which I absolutely love. Its like a peachy orange shade thats just gorgeous. Then we also got the Magic Pout Potion Lip Plumping Primer and lastly a Mani Markerimg_5515

Most of these items can be found at Sephora. I linked all of the items that they sell online down below. ❤ Just simply click on the to get to the product page.

Wine Safari with Ashley Tisdale and Signorelli

On Friday I went to an small blogger event that Ashley Tisdale hosted with her clothing company Signorelli. We went to Malibu Wines Safari and went on the little safari tour around the ranch, meeting all the animals, feeding them and also tasting a bunch of wines. After the safari we were treated with a yummy lunch and more wine while browsing the new fall collection from Signorelli.

The Saddle Rock Ranch is such a beautiful place. If you didn’t know my friend has her 7 horses here and last year I used to go up there 2-3 times per week to ride. I have gradually gotten more and more busy and don’t have as much time going here anymore. She is also moving her horses to a private ranch in 2 weeks so I won’t be going here anymore which is so sad. Riding here is so amazing (we have our own riding tracks and jumping obstacles) but, riding along the mountains on the ranch is just so beautiful. Will definitely miss riding here.

Weekend Festival

Weekend Festival is the largest festival in Northen Europe and last year they had artists like Tiesto, David Guetta, Martin Garrix and more performing at the festival. The festival always take place in different European countries each year and this year I am pretty sure that Sweden is on the map for the festival! Which city? We don’t know yet but my guess is either Stockholm or Gothenburg. Which city do you think the festival will come to this year?

The city will be announced December 7 so until then, take a look at the teaser from last years festival. Follow Weekend Festival on Facebook and Instagram for clues to where the festival will take place next.

Teva x Swarovski x HonestlyWTF DIY Event

[ts_row] [ts_one_half]I was invited to a DIY event with Teva, Swarovski and HonestlyWTF at Nordstrom last week. This is my absolute first pair of Teva sandals and they are so simple, yet so great! On their website there are tons of styles but the one that you will be seeing in this post is the Teva X HonestlyWTF DIY kit sandals. Every each and one of us that were invited got a kit and we were allowed to not only design them ourselves. We also got to meet and get professional help by the co founder Erica. She showed us a bunch of things that we could to design our shoes and it was so much fun!

I was really surprised by how easy it was to attach all the crystals. Most of them were already pre-glued and you only needed to use heat and pressure to attached them to the sandal straps. This can easily be made at home with a straightening iron. Some of the crystals were attached with glue since they were much bigger. What you could do with your design was truly unlimited and no sandal looked  like the other. It was such a fun event and great experience as I don’t take the time to sit down and do a lot of DIY anymore.I really get into the zone when Im focused on something and people even commented on my quietness and that I seemed so focused on it.

If you would like to buy a pair you can choose from the original sandals ($90) or a platform sandal ($100) and they come with the full kit of Swarovski crystals, DIY tools, embroidery floss and a little handbook to guide you through your project.[/ts_one_half] [ts_one_half]

[ts_row] [ts_two_third] [image_gallery images=”6203:http://www.reduxsquad.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/2015-11-04-17.04.28.jpg,6201:http://www.reduxsquad.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/2015-11-04-16.52.08.jpg,6318:http://www.reduxsquad.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/IMG_0482.jpg,6319:http://www.reduxsquad.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/IMG_0481.jpg,” ][/image_gallery] [/ts_two_third] [ts_one_third] So here you have the little kit with everything that you get. We got the original sandals to design. As you see theres not a lot of things that are required to start this project and the only additional thing you need is something to apply heat and pressure. Of course you can also decide to pimp out your sandals a little bit extra buy getting some additional crystals to glue on! I might actually do that now that I mention it. Also you will see some examples that the lady herself, Erica, made and at then lastly you have my sandals!

Do you own a pair of Teva’s?  [/ts_one_third] [/ts_row]

Plan Check X Gudetama Takeover

Thursday night I was invited to a special VIP dinner launch of the Plan Check X Gudetama takeover. I got to try out the special menu that are available at all Plan Check + Bat locations until November 29. The multi-course menu includes a Crispy blanket egg, soy sauce egg, spicy pork belly sausage, miso aioli as a starter. Followed by a Gudetama two beef slider (the mini burgers) sunny fried quail eggs, cheese two ways, bacon two ways, ketchup leather and hot sauce. As dessert you get a chocolate custard pudding with a apricot thumbprint cookie. A orange-ginger egg cream soda is also included in the meal.

My absolute favorite were the sliders. Holy moly how good they were! The hot sauce just made it so perfect. The little eggs were so adorable you almost felt guilty eating them up, but I’m happy that I did!  If you decide to go and grab this lovely menu it will cost you $39 but included in the meal is also a Gudetama x Plan Check t-shirt.

The whole restaurant were covered in Gudetamas and the Gudetama girls rolled in a big one, can you believe that there was a person inside of there?!

Sorry if the pictures aren’t the best, but night, lighting. You get the deal. 

Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Event @ The Peninsula Beverly Hills

A few days ago I attended a cute small event with Real Techniques for their new Bolds Metals Collection, I’m sure most of you know about the brushes. It was a really small event, only about 15 something people invited and I brought my friend Michaela as well. The Peninsula Hotel is absolutely stunning, every inch of it is absolute perfection. The event was on the outside patio which made a perfect spot for it.

The owners and creators, Nic & Sam Chapman were both there to meet, and talk to us about their makeup brushes, experiences and well, everything really. I’d say that I’m not quite as a beauty enthusiast as some of the other people that were invited, most of them were beauty vloggers, none that I knew about. But, with free drinks, open bar and a lot of appetizers I could not complain. 2015-07-28 20.37.22

After the event were over we all got a pretty filled goodie bag with products from Real Techniques, I’ll show you that one in another post and talk about the different brushes. Me and Michaela also went up to the rooftop afterwards to enjoy the view and just to see how gorgeous the Hotel is. The pool area is usually closed since its only for HotelGuests, but that night it was open so we went inside.

Fashion For Breakfast with Wildfox

I attended the fashion for breakfast event this morning hosted by Wildfox. Its always such an great little event every week or so and Cicconis, the restaurant where its hosted, is so pretty! Today the co founder of Wildfox Kimberley shared some stories about herself and some advice for anyone wanting to start their own clothing brand. I was a little bit disappointed because her interview wast long and I feel that she could’ve told us so much more. Anyhow, its always good food and great people there so you can’t really complain.

I decided to try the Eggs Benedict this time, so yummy!
