Why is a cold shower good?

Taking a cold shower? No I prefer cold but lately I have read some good things about taking a cold shower. As a torture for some. So here are five tips why taking a cold shower is good for the body. First: with a cold shower, I really mean cold water. No combination with hot water to make it nicer.

Better circulation
Hot water improves blood circulation in the blood vessels, cold water ensures in turn that the organs get a better flow. So regularly between hot and cold and try to finish with cold water. In this way, the general circulation of the body will be optimally stimulated.
Hot water opens the pores, which is good, because now all the dirt is removed. However, it is also intended that the pores protect the skin from excess debris. Therefore it is wise to end with a cold shower to make sure that the pores are close.
Shine bright like a diamond
Cold water also has the nice property that it gives the hair more shine. And that is something we all want. The skin closes off because of the cold water. This gives your hair the opportunity to become stronger and to be shine more.
Dark under eyes
Cold water keeps the blood vessels having a better control and therefore causes less swelling, which is causing the dark circles under the eyes.
Last but not leasr, nothing is finer and fresher than standing up after a refreshing shower. You are (for the morning douchers) equal tasty awake and fresh. For the evening, it is a good occasion to wash all the hassles of the day, And nothing is finer than after cuddle under the bed sheets. Are you a fan of cold showers?

REVIEW ETUDE HOUSE Sweet Recipe Cupcake Eyeshadow

 Hello lovely readers! You may know that I recently got some lovely stuff from my friend, including the Sweet Eye Cupcake eyeshadow from Etude House's Sweet Recipe line. Incase you have not seen the Sweet Recipe line yet, click then HERE. So today I am going to review the Sweet eye cupcake eyeshadow. Read more about this product in this blogpost.
Loved by 2NE1’s Dara and SHINee, the Etude House Sweet Eye Cupcake Eyeshadow duo is a unique baked eyeshadow duo that is packaged in a tin that resembles a cute cupcake!
- Each eyeshadow duo is baked 24 hours straight for enhanced staying power and color pay-off.
- Highflex glitter and multi-dimension opal pearl reflects light so that eyes appear bigger and brighter.
- The Sweet Eye Cupcake Eyeshadow Duo is great worn together or individually and is available in 4 different color duos: Banana Choco Chip, Cloud Cookie, Sweet Kiss Campbell Grape, and Sweet Peach.

I have received the Etude House Sweet Eye Cupcake #3 in Peach and Honey. While the size probably is not ideal for those that like things compact. It is an imitation cupcake, you have to admit that it is very cute!
I got this product as a present but it's sold for $9,50 If you are interested in this product you can buy in stores where Asian make-up is sold. Or if there is not any Asian make-up store at your location you can buy it online where Asian cosmetics is sold like kkcenterhk, cosmetic-love.com, w2beauty, bbcreamboutique etc.
The colours mixed with each other in a half the lid brighter cream-white colour and other half of the lid pink peach-coloured, it looks really pretty. The cream-white/yellow colour is sparkly whilst the pink-peach colour has a more metallic shine to it. Combined together, both of the colours look really good.
Though despite how pigmented they looked from the container, they do not apply the same way. It ends up a bit sheer that you need to pack it on a bit to get them to show up strongly. Though alongside that, you will also get a lot of glitter. But the texture is pretty fine and easy to brush away. 
Although it was not that pigmented it wasn't bad for me. I am not that big fan on bold colors or are sort of easing into makeup. Sweet Peach isn’t outrageous, being a golden and pink shade, so it should work on most skin tones. Though also being sheer, it might take a bit more layering for it to show up on darker skin tones. This product is small enough to throw in your purse or handbag and take along for a touch-up. Rate: ♥♥♥♥♥ 4/5

'A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous' -COCO CHANEL
Fashion can be bought, style one must possess.


Most of you already know that I love korean sheets masks and esspecially from the brand My beauty Diary (我的美麗日記). And a friend of me was on a holiday and went to China and later when she was back in town she bought me some Korean goodies, wich includes my favorite sheet masks, so sweet of her! ^__^. So today I am going to review on of the populair sheet masks from their collection, named The black pearl mask.
What does it says?
The mask should softens, whitens, and moisturize the skin.
The masks are individually packed into a black foil wrapping. On the packaging you can see some beach shell prints and the words are in pink and white.You only need to tear the mask open and unfold the sheet mask. Like all of the other My Beauty Diary sheet masks, there is a plastic sheet folded into the sheet mask. Throw the plastic sheet away.
How to use?
Always clean your face first. Then unfold the sheet mask and put it on your face for about 20-30 minutes. When it's time you gently massage the excess tonic on your face and wait till everything is absorbed. You don't need to rinse it off. Follow with your usual moisturizer or serum after the essence is absorbed.
Amount and ingrediënts
I got the masks seperately but you can also buy them in a box. One box comes with ten individually sheet masks. Each mask is 30 gram and contains 23 ml of essence.

Does is work?
There was a lot of essence on the mask, so you might get some drops from the mask. The mask was very refreshing and moisturizing. And I could see that my skin was a bit brighter than first, but this only was for a hour. After all I think this is quite a nice mask for people who want to whitening their skin. My rate would be: ♥♥♥♥ 3/5
