Salzburg Streets

5 Things to Do When Exploring Salzburg

Salzburg is a great place to visit when you’re looking for a taste of old Austria. It exudes a certain charm, with its winding narrow streets and the fortress that oversees it from atop a hill. I’ve used Salzburg twice as an “inbetween town”, in my travels, breaking up the long and arduous journey from Germany to Italy. It’s a great place to spend a day or two. There’s great Austrian food to be had here, and quite a few sights to keep you busy. I have a couple tips and fun things to do while you’re there, so here we go.

Colosseum Inside

Making the Most Out of Your Trip to the Colosseum

When I was in Rome, I stayed at a hotel so close to the Colosseum that you could see it as soon as you walked down the street. It really is a surreal sight to experience.

Pastel Goth Palette – Review & Swatches

 

When I first saw the Kat Von D Pastel Goth Palette I dismissed it. The colours didn’t jump out at me, and I already own the Urban Decay Electric Palette, so I didn’t really see the need for another brightly coloured palette. It wasn’t until I watched JKissa and Shannon Harris‘ videos on the palette that I fell in love. This is why I feel the need to tell you guys about this palette. It really is an absolutely beautiful collection of colours, and the formula is good as well, considering pastels are notoriously hard to formulate.

My Spring Routine: The Best Beauty Products for a Natural Glow

Spring is the perfect time to highlight natural beauty, or at least that’s what I’ve heard.

Good quality products can be expensive, but investing in products that actually work is really important.

Nude Lipsticks for Fair Skin

Pale Girl Diaries: Best Nude Lipsticks for Fair Skin

Nude lipsticks are the little black dresses of the cosmetics world. Brown nudes, pink nudes, peachy nudes, whatever the undertone, nudes will always be in style in one form or another. As a girl with fair skin (really fair, I’m talking the lightest shade of foundation is still sometimes too dark for me) I always find it really difficult to find the perfect nude. I know I’m not the only one who looks at swatches of gorgeous nudes, buys one, and then tries it on only to find out it’s straight up coral on my skintone. Well friends, I come bearing good news: there are nudes out there for us pale girls. I’ve rounded up a few of my favourites to share with you. Swatches at the bottom of the list!
