Matte Purple Lipsticks Comparison

I long promised a review/swatch/comparison of these two purple lipsticks, since they are rather similar. It's high season for bold plum lips even for those who don't go around with dark lips all year (i.e. not me), so a little help deciding can't hurt.

Album Reviews: October

Paragraph one: here's the usual stuff. Paragraph two: it's short, because life. I don't even know why I'd bother writing an introduction after all this time. October was good and gloomy, so if that's your thing, proceed as you want; otherwise, be warned.

A Halloween Playlist

This comes with the usual warning: only for lovers of all things metal. Here you can listen to it on 8tracks, and after the break there's a track-by-track breakdown with youtube links, for those who don't want to listen to the whole length. (And in case 8tracks skips some songs, which it sometimes does.)

Glamour Haul

The obligatory Glamour Days post that must be appearing on every Hungarian fashion blogger's site. This time around I bought exactly zero pieces of clothing, but left quite a bit of cash at drugstores. I also bought a pair of shoes, but still - I exercised a good deal of control.
A kötelező Glamour-napos poszt, biztosan a hatszázadik mindenki feedjén. Most semmi ruházati terméket nem vettem - egyrészt nem igazán van semmire szükségem, másrészt fekete köves gyűrűt sehol sem találtam (olyat ami tetszett), szóval abból ebay lesz, majd karácsonyi ajándék gyanánt. Viszont nagyon sok mindent vettem drogériákban - ilyenkor szoktam betárazni mindenből a hajbalzsamtól a dezodorokig, plusz nyilván néhány szép, őszi színű miegymás is tervben volt.

Album Reviews: September

I'm here with the newest batch of album releases. It's not really that September had that many more great records - more so that there are loads of releases in September for some reason. Fall fashion? Fall albums? Is it like the summer season and Christmas for movies? Unfortunately, this also means I have no way of properly listening to them all, what with the semester starting and a shitload of university work to be done. I listened to about a dozen new albums, but narrowed it down to these seven - for some reason or other, these were the ones I listened to the most.

2016 Spring Trends (at the Fashion Weeks)

The fashion weeks are not over yet, but I thought I'd do a little post about emergent trends, before doing my usual favourites month after the end of Paris Fashion Week. I'm no expert, so I don't know which of these will make it into fast fashion, and a few might even be wishful thinking on my part.

Liebster Blog Award

Well, now there's one more instance where I really cannot duck away from writing in Hungarian. I got an award from Szilvi - one which this little community of Hungarian beauty bloggers routinely pass around each other, since it's at the same a great way to get to know each other, and to excercise the kind of exhibitionism we all started blogging for.
Szilvitől kaptam egy díjat, ami a kis bloggerközösségünkben mindig ide-oda vándorol, én még sosem kaptam meg. Itt lenne az ideje magyarul írni? Többet a divatról és kevesebbet a zenéről? Nah. Arra ott vannak mások.

Birthdays, Trips, Dinners

This Sunday was my birthday - as it is with adulthood, half of it was chores and only half the party. The party mainly being a visit to Szentendre and an avantgarde exhibition within. Sounds sappy, but the real gift is still spending time with my friends. Then of course, my family awaited me home with dinner and yet more gifts. Behold, below.

Fall 2015 Wishlist

My wishlists in the autumn (notice the abrupt switch to British English when I no longer need a catchy title?) are always much more nebulous than the spring ones. That's not because autumn is my favourite season - that would be summer, though this one comes as second. In fact, it probably goes without saying that it's because I like the trends of and clothes of this particular time of the year a whole lot better. Jewel tones and actual layers and dark lipstick and black, lots of black, is what I live for. (No, but my fashion self really does.)
It's easy to incorporate current trends into your wardrobe when you only have to look at which of them are available in black. (No, I'm not becoming a health goth, I have standards.) I like to flatter myself thinking I have my own style, but I don't actually know whether that's really true. Well, not that I have the sort of disposable income to buy into all the new trends, so I might be better off with sticking to a stable wardrobe. But that doesn't mean there aren't things I want, and my birthday's also in two weeks. (So these are the imaginary gifts.)
