Super Duper Easy Nutella Cupcakes

So few days ago I was browsing for recipes and found the recipe for Nutella Muffins at this site.
It it soo easy and yummy and very quick to make so you can make it anytime you have a sweet craving (in my case, almost all the time ;)

Before I went to the recipe, do keep in mind that you need measuring spoon and cups for this. Or if you're already an expert in eyeballing that's fine too ;)

What you need
1 cup of Nutella
10 tbs of all purpose flour, sifted
2 eggs (I prefer to whisk the eggs first)
You can also add hazelnuts or chocolate chips if you want :)

What to do
1. Heat your oven to 175 degrees celcius.
2. Line your cupcake tins with cupcake cups
3. Whisk the eggs
4. Mix in the nutella and the flour. No need for mixer, use a spatula to mix so it will be easier to wash later.
5. Scoop the batter into the cups and oven for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted come out clean.

This recipe makes 10 cupcakes :)

I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know if you make them too :D

Dior Vernis in 231 Bikini

It just snowed again yesterday here in Den Haag. When I woke up on Sunday morning, hubby especially nudged me to see the snow covered street outside. And he sure saw the disappointment on my face :( I have been getting ready to ride my bike again and wearing lighter coats after recent temperature raise, but apparently the weather won't allow it quite yet.

But! Even though the weather is not actually spring summer-y, I have a cute nail color to brighten things up a little (or a lot!) which is Dior's Bikini. If you can't have authentic Dior swimwear covering your body, at least this can cover your nails ;)

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks had always intrigued me. I first tried them when I asked the SA at one Bobbi Brown counter to test the tinted moisturizer on me, she did so and then added some powder and applied the shimmer brick in Wild Rose on my cheeks. At that time I really loved the result and asked for the price, but €46 sure is high so I decided to grab only the tinted moisturizer.

About two or three weeks ago I was surprised to find a Bobbi Brown shimmer brick under special deals at strawberrynet, it was reduced to €22.50 and additional 5% discount because it's my 7th transaction already ;P the only color for that deal was only Nectar and as I look closely (even though I never really see it in store), I think it looks good enough so I decided to buy it.

ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Baby Lips and Ruby Slipper

Around two weeks ago I went through E.L.F's website and thought maybe it's time to give it a chance :) I searched recommended products at makeupalley and decided to try the lip products first. I got three products, two luscious liquid lipstick and one essential super glossy lip shine.

Now let's take a look at the liquid lipsticks!

For Sale: Diorskin Nude and Lancome Teint Miracle

I didn't intend for this blog to be for selling products but after a while of thinking and re-thinking I made up my mind to let go of two products in my foundation stash. It's kind of a heavy feeling because back then I was really looking forward to get them, but now the shade doesn't match me anymore, at all, so here goes :) Please note that the price I put here doesn't include shipping, which are from 9 to 12 € within Europe (these are only offered for shipping within Europe). Payment is through Paypal only. If you're interested please send e-mail to stating which product, your paypal e-mail and your address so I can calculate shipping. I will ship within 3 working days after receiving payment.

First up is the Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Make Up SPF 10 in shade 031 Sand. Unboxed, worn only once. Originally retailed for €40.30 (reference This one offered for €20.

My foundation is authentic and I only sell it because the color doesn't match me anymore. It is a great foundation, as it said on the title it offered natural finish and it scored 3.9 on makeupalley. Shade 031 is supposed to match NC35 on MAC. So it's a medium shade with warm undertone.

Second one is Lancôme Teint Miracle in shade 045 Sable Beige. Unboxed, worn twice. Originally retailed for €35.75. This one offered for €18.

Again this is an authentic product and I only sell it because the color doesn't match me anymore. This was the hyped foundation that Kate Middleton was said to wear on her wedding day (yes, I was sold :P) and scored 4.0 on makeupalley. Shade 045 I think was supposed to match NC40 on MAC. It's a slightly deeper shade with warm undertone.

So there they are, hope they found happy new owners soon :)
