Summer to Autumn

Hey, it's September.

Before we take the transition from lovely summer towards mysterious Autumn, I want to show you Miss Mermaid and her Skull bikini as a reminder of Kawaii summer.


She is one of the characters I have on my copy/counterfeit of the Pro Sports bag.

I have an original Pro Sport as well...with such cute characters...


Are all characters supersweet and kawaii? Noo, some are a bit darker, like this gothic couple...


Still, they are sweet and really into each other....awww,he gives her a skull and his cape says adios....

And, the eternal question of a flower who questions love: "Does he love me, or not?"


If picking the leaves from a flower would make it so easy to get an answer...right???

Miss Mermaid Skull boobies (in the beginning) is a part of the Ziki Sports line. Very counterfeit, but dead-cheap for only 1 euro. It is a sports-toilet bag, so I can top up my looks after being sweaty and active...


The Ziki purse has this pirate theme that I like....Pirates have been quite lust-worthy after Pirates of the Caribbean....(swoon)


When all of these bags still look summery to you, they are actually part of the Autumn plan to go excercizing and tote my things around in a happy bag, especially when I have burned so much energy during workouts.

Another thing that I love about Autumn is that I can darken up my hair a bit. Summer is sometimes a bit too bubbly with the perference for lighter (or blonde) hair. I personally am not a blonde, but I have lightened up this summer.

And now Autumn is almost here I would like to try a rinse out glossifyer that has been recommended by the queen of Asian hauls: Kathy from Lotuspalace. (her review over here)

I don't like to be an exact copycat, but the other colours looked too red or dark for me, so I also picked a neutral brunette colour...

Ohhh, experimentation! (in a safe and rinse out way...)

In one of cosmeticcandy's posts she shared her makeup-crushes for the summer. I am always really fickle and non-monogamous with makeup as well as she declares to be, but this summer I have been quite faithful in my crush to KIKO.

my first KIKO purchase...the sun Mousse in Bronze

I also had Autumn on  my mind when buying from KIKO this summer, because the colours I picked in the picture are of those sultry wines and purples....

Well, one of my collegues (Anna from the italianbeautyblog) who is an expert in Italian makeup told me that the brand was quite mediocre before, but this year some products improved, she wrote in a comment to me.

And indeed, not everything is so perfect, because the undereye concealer is quite rubbish...and some other things that are not to mention-worthy. Still, I like their nail-polishes and eyeshadows a lot...And it reminds me of Mediterranean cities....

Soo, one of my new makeup crushes has been the Rouge Volupte  lipstick  from Yves Saint Laurent.

The Rouge Volupte has been glorified over various types of blogs, and although I love the texture, I could not find the right colour.


Untill... for this Autumn 2010 they launched colour no. 20....and ooooooooooohhhh...


It is a bit more mauve than in the picture, which makes it a transition-to-fall colour with that hint of purple that brightens teeth and makes eyes more lucid.

It is incredibly unique, and I have tons of MLBB (my lips but better) colours...

It has that bit of mauvy purple in it, and still wearable for a lipstick shy person who does not want to attract too much attention to her lips.

So, I would like to conclude with this sweet picture of my counterfeit makeup bag...

Mr, pirate squid and his girlfriend in love with diamonds....

PS: Another question for readers who like to answer: what are you planning for Autumn? Or aren't you planning at all and let everything go with the flow?

We definitely have similar tastes!! Tokidokis are some of my favourite characters, they're a perfect mix of sweetness, quirkiness and "darkness", very cool! Oh, and thanks for mentioning me, I feel honoured really! I have the Kiko Bronze mousse as well, I wasn't sure about it at first, but I did use it a lot this summer, both on its own and as a base. The new Kiko collection is out, will have to do a post soon. And the YSL lippie looks really nice...I agree about the colour selection, I only have one myself (can't remember if 2 or 3) but this looks promising, will have to check it out. As for Autumnal plans...nothing much yet, my son is starting pre-school on Monday, have to see how he settles in and then I'll be able to start thinking about myself as well!! Have a great weekend, xx
