|there's nothing you can't do, now you're in New York|

I'm sorry that it took me a while to post some first impressions of New York. But finally, here they are! There are so many different people in New York and so many different places. You really can experience a different and funny situation day by day. As Jay-Z and Alicia Keys said in "Empire State of Mind": these streets will make you fell brand new.

When I hopefully will get rid of my jet lag in the next few days, there will be more posts about New York. And I will also have the time to read all your lovely blogs and answer all your comments when I will stop sleeping til midday :) So stay tuned!

|Catrice - Nail polish, lip gloss and more|

A few weeks ago I received a packet from Catrice. Thanks to I was one of the lucky winners that could test some Catrice-products. 

The packet included 

3 different Ultimate Nail Lacquer
330 Absolutely Chinchilly
030 Meet me Coral Island
490 Iron Mermaiden

Catrice: Ultimate colour, ultimate gloss, ultimate coverage!

My opinion: I only can agree with Catrice's words above. I usually have to paint my nails every single day because all the nail polishes I use start peeling off after one day. But this Catrice nail polish is great and lasted for 3 days. I really love the coral nail polish and I fell in love with Iron Mermaiden because sometimes it shines in lilac and sometines in grey (if you wanna see a picture of that nail polish while I'm wearing it, I can post one). The Catrice nail polish is really one of the best nail polish I've ever used.

2 different Eye Colour
130 Sitting on a Valcano
230 Where is my caddy-li-lac

My opinion: I'm not a big fan of eyeshadows, but I really liked these eye colours. They are great to match with other colours and it even lasts although you're sweating.

2 different Colour & Stay Lip Gloss
010 Toast with champagne
070 Light my fire 

Catrice: Infinite colour lip gloss, lasts uo to 4 hours.
My opinion: And yeah it does. I really love that lip gloss, esepecially the coral one Light my fire. The gloss feels a little bit sticky when putting it on, but the long lasting really makes up for that.

1 Lashes to Kill Volume Mascara 

Catrice: With black diamond powder and carbon black for ulta black lashes. The curved brush covers every lash and gives extra volume. 

My opinion: It's hard for me to find the perfect mascara because I have quite long lashes. But this mascara is also one of the best I've ever tried and it even gives my long lashes extra volume, so that I think I will stick to this mascara from now on.

I really can recommend the nail polish and lip gloss to you, and of course the mascara. Do you use a lot of of Catrice products and how do you like them? And are you a Konsumgöttin, too? If not, you really should try it and start testing products.


|back for good|

You lovely readers, I'm back in Germany again and had such a great time in New York and Toronto. I also want to thank you for all your lovely comments, which I couldn't answer while I were on vacation. And thank you for keep on reading my blog (I also could gain a few more readers, thank you so much for that). I really have to catch up with your blogs in the next few days and can't wait to read them all. 

I will post more pictures of New York and the stuff I bought there the next few days. So I hope you'll be curious about all those posts.

|Byebye New York...|

...we're off to Toronto tonight. I guess I will be sad to leave New York, because whenever I've been to city for the first time there are so many things to experience and I always don't get the chance to see all of them. I think it will be same with New York. But I'm really looking forward to go to Toronto. I've been to Canada once before and I will meet with my exchange student in Toronto. I haven't seen her in 10 years and I'm so excited!

|Gossip Girl meets New York Yankees|

This evening we're going to watch the match New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox. I'm really looking forward to it and I'm so excited. I've never watched a real baseball game before, not even on TV. So, I'm kinda curious whether I like it as much as soccer or not.

But I really want to buy some "New York Yankees"-fashion in New York. Don't matter if I like baseball or not. I'm so in love with the shirt Jessica Szohr wore the other day, that I really want to have one too. And because I wrote all these posts before I left for New York, maybe I've already found one, who knows? :)

I really love Jessica Szohr's style and outfits - also as Vanessa on Gossip Girl. But here some of her outfits she wore in her free time.

I hope you all had a great weekend. There will be real posts again, as soon as I get back to Germany!

xoxo Vanessa

|thirty scarves|

As I told you before (click here to see more) I have way to many scarves. So I decided to wear a different scarf every single day. My project started on April, the 1st and ended on April, the 30st. I can tell you, it's quite hard if you shoudn't wear a scarf twice when you have so many favourite scarves which you want to wear every day. But I did it - I wore 30 different scarves, which you can see here. Today I want to show you the scarves, I wore in the last few days of April.

What are your plans for this weekend? Anything special you're up to? I'm going to have sushi and cocktails tonight with some friends of mine to celebrate my master. Saturday and Sunday I will spend with my family before I leave for New York next week. We'll habe BBQ tomorrow and raclette for Mother's day on Sunday. I'm so looking forward to this weekend, can't wait for it

|100 movies to see... Pt. 5|
