For a great Halloween party you need 3 things: a spooky decoration, yummy food that looks disgusting and a great costume (and of course your guests but I think that if you have the 3 previous things, they will come of their own...).
1. The CostumeFinding the right costume can be quite hard. The easiest thing would be to get inspired by movies or fairytales and other stories (or by my post on Heidi Klum's Halloween costumes). Here are some various costumes I really like (all found here):

What does every nailista need two days before Halloween? Right! Spooky nails. When browsing the internet for inspirations I found some really amazing Halloween manicures that I will also show you at the end of this post. However I felt I was not that talented so I chose the easiest manicure: bloody nails. All you need is a nice red nail polish and another colour you feel will express the spooky mood. I chose a simple white as a base to make the "blood" really eye-catching. I also found this tutorial on bloody nails where they used a toothpick so I tried to use one at the beginning but then I found out that for beginners it will be much easier to simply use the thinner part of the nail polish brush. But of course you may do however you like it best.
Today's post has been in my head for ages but now I'm finally writing it. I thought I would be a nice idea to make a "make-up I use" post in order to show you which products I trust in and use on a daily base. It should also be a little help for those of you who haven't found their ideal make-up products yet. We all know that out there millions of mascaras, foundations, eyeliners,... exist and finding the one that's best for you isn't always easy. It would also be really great if you could leave the names of your favourite products as a comment under this post, like this there will be the possibility for me and for you to discover new products of which we know that someone out there appreciates them.
Yesterday my courses at university started again after 3 months of summer break. In my Manic(ure) Monday post you could already see a few details of my back to school outfit but now I want to show it to you completely, especially because it contains some of my latest new ins like for example my velvet Deichmann boots.
And now that also the Paris Fashion Week has come to an end, I can finally post the last part of my accessorie-series. In this post you will thus see the hats, scarves, shoes,... presented in Paris and at the end of the images I will also try to make a little summary on what will be trendy in spring/summer 2013.
