Meet me on the Star Ferry!

I bough OPI "Meet me on the Star Ferry" just because of it's name :D I LOVE Hong Kong and every time I visit there, I want to use Star Ferry a few times. There is also tunnels and bridges between Kowloon (mainland) and Hong Kong Island but Star Ferry is just something special! If you ever visit this shoppers paradise (shops are open till 11 pm+ :D), visit Star Ferry too. It's even CHEAP. I don't understand why OPI didn't make anything named after the Victoria Peak.

By the way, if you know beauty bloggers from Kong Kong, please tell me. I'd love hear more about the local MU brands :)

Ostin OPIn Meet me on the Star Ferry-lakan ihan nimen takia :D Hong Kong on suosikkikaupunkini ja aina kun vierailen siellä, täytyy toki käyttää Star Ferryä! Onhan Hong Kongin saaren ja mantereen välisä toki tunneleita ja siltojakin mutta tunnelma lautalla on toki ihan erilainen :D Jos joskus vierailet tässä shoppailijan paratiisissa (kaupat auki melkein puoleen yöhön :D) kannattaa kokeilla myös Star Ferryä. On halpakin!



But finally, here is the nail polish ;) Unfortunately I couldn't catch the right color with my camera... It's really lighter, you can find better pictures from Kelly's blog here: Vampy Vanish. The color is medium metallic plum, quite hard to describe. I don't like this color much but if you like this kind of colors, you might like it more than I do :D

Mutta lopulta asiaan, tässä itse lakka ;) Valitettavasti näytti kaikissa kuvissa oikeaa tummelta... Vampy Varnishin Kellyn blogista (linkki yllä) löytyy parempi kuva. Sävy on aika erikoinen ja vaikea kuvailla, ehkä sanoisin metallinen vaaleahko luumu. Ei minun värini mutta ehkäpä sinä pidät tästä enemmän :D




Sorry about my super-dry cutcles :( The weather is just so cold here in the moment, about -20C/-4F and very windy. I live in southern Finland, but it was -41,3C/-42,3F in northern Finland last night.


More info about Star Ferry here (map is from their site) and Wikipedia (picture from there).

  4. Your poor cuticles. :( I apply shea butter on them everyday. It really helps. Even if it's not -20°C on here, mine are constantly dry. I crave for Spring!!

    (I can't believe how cold it is in Finland - yet I still adore Nordic countries)

    'Meet me on the Star Ferry' is the kind of color I LOVE on others, and you make no exception. However, if I had it I wouldn't find myself wearing it much. So... I skipped it.

    There should be a terrible snow storm this night :/ And I don't really like this polish, it's like Kinky in Helsinki: I got it JUST for the name :D I'll try something else tomorrow! This just is not "me", and it's definitely not "you" either.

  7. LOL I'm a beauty blogger from Hong Kong :)

    i'm currently on exchange in Denmark Copenhagen for 6 months. Speaking of OPI HK collection, I found the colors a bit weird, lol. they look kinda eccentric, I think with those color names they can come up with more 'original' colors. But I do like the Star Ferry though, i love the fact that it is so close to Facesss Tsim Sha tsui! lol perfect for MU-shopping.

    Do you have facebook or MSN/Windows Live Messenger? We can talk more about local MU brands in HK there if you want :)

New Aromaleigh products for face (primer, powders, foundations)

Vain englanniksi, omaa tekstiä on vähemmän ja menee muuten liian sekavaksi :)



illuminata luxe mineral finishing powder
Yay! "diamond" powder without silica! I can use some silica but better if not too much... So I prefer products without it. This made skin look very radiant. Me likey! I already bought a full size of this :D "Aromaleigh "Illuminata Luxe" Finishing Powder is a translucent, sheer loose mineral cosmetic powder, that contains reflective minerals to give your skin a subtle, more radiant appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles are less dominant, and a fine finish is revealed. It takes the Illuminata formula a step further with the addition of a revolutionary light-diffusing diamond copolymer, which is a spherical powder with an entrapped photoluminescent diamond core. This diamond copolymer ingredient, while not "mineral" or "natural" in nature, adds great benefit to this Finishing Powder's ability to impart a soft-focus effect and …

Vänttisen (Arja's Art) valjaat kissoille & Power of Nature-kissanruoka

*This post about cat products is only in Finnish, sorry!*

Tässä muutamia kuvia lempivaljaistamme, Vänttisistä :) Arja Vänttiseltä saa myös aivan loistavaa palvelua ja valjaat tehdään mittojen mukaan samaan hintaan. Valjaat ovat pehmoiset ja todella helpot laittaa kissalle. Myös lapset ja mummit onnistuvat näiden laitossa hyvin :D Plussaa siitä, että solkia on vain yksi ja sekin on laadukas. Valjaita löytyy niin kissoille, koirille kuin kaneillekin. Valmistajan lisäksi näitä saa mm. Mustista&Mirristä ja Megaeläimestä. Kissanvaljaiden hinta alle 20€. Meillä on näitä koosta XXS kokoon L.

Suosittelen Vänttisiä erittäin lämpimästi muillekin :)

Valmistaja: Arja's Art









Toinen ehdoton suosikkimme on Power of Nature-kissanruoka! 80% lihaa eikä mitään turhuuksia!

Tässä esim Natural Cat kanan tuoteseloste: Kuivattu kananliha, tuore kananliha, kananrasva, alfalfa, pellavansiemeniä, kananmaksaa, lohiöljyä, merilevä, karpalo, tauriini, prebiootteja, kivennäisaneet ja vitamiinit.

Yksi paletti, kymmenen bloggaajaa: NYX Professional Makeup Perfect Filter Olive You

Charlotta Eve sai idean projektista, jossa bloggaajat toteuttavat omanlaisensa meikin käyttäen samaa luomiväripalettia. Mukaan lähti 40 kauneusbloggaajaa. Meidät jaettiin kymmenen hengen ryhmiin, joilla jokaisella on oma luomiväripalettinsa NYX Professional Makeupilta.
Tämä viikko on omistettu Olive You -paletille ja tässä oma meikkitoteutukseni sillä. Postauksen lopusta löydät linkit yhdeksään muuhun blogiin, joista löytyy paletilla tehty meikki. Viime viikon Marine Layer -meikit olivat uskomattoman erilaisia, mielenkiintoista nähdä mitä muut ovat tällä paletilla loihtineet! Omani on aika tyypillinen ja "minun näköiseni". Paletti oli ihana, niin laadultaan kuin väreiltäänkin, ja luomivärinappien koko oli ilahduttavan suuri.

Paletit meille sponsoroi www.pretty.fi, joka myös antoi alekoodin lukijoille: Ostamalla kolme NYX Professional Makeup -tuotetta saat edullisimman niistä puoleen hintaan koodilla NYXZIEUJB.
