Handmade jewelry and christening, baptism, party items!

Hello lovelies, I've been a very busy bee lately so I hope you'll excuse my lack of posts. I've been making many things for my baby's christening ceremony and also for my brand new etsy shop. The christening was a week ago and I thought I would have time to relax after that, but guess what! I don't! I really want to make a detailed post about the christening but for the moment I am going to show you some pics of the things I have made. Most of them are available at my etsy shop which is called MarinaLovesPink (www.MarinaLovesPink.etsy.com) Check them out, you might find something you like! Show me some love by putting my shop/items on your favorites, will you? It would mean a lot!

Cookies, cookies and more cookies!

Hello lovelies,
I have taken up a new hobby recently and it is a lot of fun! If only I had more time to dedicate to it! I have started making cookies, but not just plain cokies, although these are great too, decorated cookies! I have been baking cloud cookies and hot air balloon cookies and I decorated them with sugarpaste and then with royal icing to see which one I like best. I liked royal icing better so I am experimenting with it at the moment! I need a little more practice but I' m loving the results so far!! Who knew homebaking could be so much fun! Do you like baking? Have you ever made decorated cookies? If not, you should! They are really worth the extra effort! Here's a peek at what I have been doing lately! Tell me what you think! Oh and make sure you follow me on instagram @miouprincesslovespink because that's where I'm most active! xoxoxo

NOTD: 'Fizzy' by H&M Beauty

Hello lovelies, 
I can't even remember when was the last time I tried a glitter nail polish without a color base first but here it is! It's called 'Fizzy' and it's got pink and black glitter and dots. I had to quickly try it while the baby was taking a nap, otherwise I would have tried it on top of a white or pale pink nail polish. Now that my nail art days are over due to limited time, this is actually a cute low maintainance idea. What color would you use as a base for this nail polish? Any suggestions? xoxoxo

Lipstick Love: 'Neon Orchid' by Avon

Hello lovelies, 
My sweet baby is taking up most of my time and there's hardly time for blogging these days. I update my Instagram almost daily or every other day so if you are not already following me, do so at @miouprincesslovespink. You will see lots of beauty products that never actually made it to the blog! In this quick post I wanted to show you what appears to be a very intense and pigmented lipstick by Avon's new neon collection. I haven't swatched it or even tried it yet but it sure looks great, doesn't it?

DIY: Frappe maker makeover

Hello lovelies, time for a DIY post. October was breast cancer awareness month so I did my bit and bought a pink Kitchen Aid blender. It's more expensive than the other colors because they donate the extra money you pay to the cause. Besides being a pretty adition to my counter, I use it every day to purée fruit for the baby and occasionally make smoothies. Next to it is my husband's frappe maker. He drinks frappe even in winter! It's a simple and masculine black color. Or it was! Until a few days ago. I got his permission to paint it pink so it matches my blender, yay! 'Just don't paint everything in the house pink!'he said! So now they sit next to each other in pink harmony!! I love it! I used spray paint once again as in most my painting projects. This is the first time I spray painted an appliance! Have you ever tried it? It's not so hard. Just be sure to protect the parts you don't want to paint like I did with masking tape. Take a look and tell me what you think.

NOTD: Avon 'Barely There' gel finish nail polish

Hello lovelies, the colour of choice for the past week was a nude beige and even though I rarely go for nude and browns, I must confess I liked it. It's a nice warm beige that compliments most skintones. The nail polish itself is great and lasts more than a week on my nails without chipping. I tried cheaper gel finish nail polishes and they only lasted 2-3 days. So if you want a mani that lasts don't buy the cheapest nail polish available. Its worth spending just a bit more and also don't forget to use top coat! A little goes a long way! How much do you usually spend on nail polish? Do you buy drugstore or high end brands? xoxoxo
