Festive glitter: Inglot Sparkling Dust.

What happens when you ask your parents to bring you a liquid highlighter? Right, they bring loose glitter. I barely ever use it, but for the holidays an exception is in order!

Journey to minimalist running: increasing the distance.

In the last update I'd reached 1k in my new shoes. Since then I've been slowly increasing the distance.

Books I'm currently reading.

Last spring I wrote about the books I was reading at the time. I still haven't finished one of them (Dali The Paintings), but other books have come and gone. Here's what I'm reading at the minute.

Christmas lips: Rimmel Lasting Finish matte lipstick.

Finally. Finally, last week I got that one lipstick I had my eyes on for a very long time. Ever since seeing it in Alix's (I Covet Thee) video in Autumn 2013. I decided I wanted it for autumn and Christmas a few montsh ago and last week I finally found it in the drugstore! Also Kruidvat had a good deal on Rimmel products: 2 for €13. So for only three extra euros I got to leave the store with both the Lasting Finish matte lipstick in shade 107 and the Glam Eyes HD eyeshadow in Brixton Brown

Journey to minimalist running: first steps.

I was very eager to get started with minimalist running, but wasn't quite sure with what distance to get started. I'd read a few different thing start with no more than 200 yards, start with 1/4 mile max. I went for 400m, which is about 1/4 mile. I did this twice after my regular jogs: once on my bare feet and once in my minimalist shoes. Here's how this went, what I learnt from it and how the following jogs have been.

A review: alverde deodorant.

A couple of days ago, my sisters and I went on a little shopping spree. We wanted to go to a few places and get a some Christmas presents. One of our stops was a small place in Germany which is actually very close to our home. There are a few shops there like Takko fashion and Deichmann and others of which I forgot the name. We only entered two shops there though: a shop with all kinds of very cheap stuff, and the shop we were really there for: dm. We'd heard this drugstore (Drogerie Markt) had a lot more natural products than our drugstores and that products there were considerably cheaper. I didn't really need anything but wanted to try out a few new things. So I left the store with two deodorants that are both free of aluminium salts, and a bag of banana crisps.
That's an awfully long story to start a review with, so let's get started!

Since the last exercise update I only ran 5k's plus the short distances to get used to my new shoes.
