This week has been the sunniest and warmest in a while, it finally fells like the spring is near. I’m a different person when it’s sunny, I have so much more energy and I smile even more. Spring also inspired this pastel-coloured outfit. It’s a combination of colours I often wear – black + pastels or neutrals and I probably feel the most comfortable in (and my Instagram seems to be full of pastels lately too :D). To make it a bit more special, I added finger-less unique felt gloves. Aren’t they the cutest?:)
This one seemed appropriate for the day after Valentines, when we usually take some more time to spend it with our SO. It’s still covers a problem we have to face it maybe a few times a year and it’s harder in the summer, when you can’t wear a scarf or a turtleneck. They are ways to speed up the healing process but what to do when you don’t have time and you want to cover that love bite/hickey fast? Here, make up is your best friend. And also chokers – this trend has more pros than just looking good. So you woke up with a hickey – what to do now?
It’s true, us girls like to be a bit spoiled sometimes. Even though we say we don’t need any gifts on Valentine’s day, we know we want them, we just don’t want to say that. And I think most of us like to give gifts too, the only problem with this whole thing is money. Especially if you are in high school or a student, maybe you are looking for a job and you just can’t afford something expensive. Yes, you would love to buy your loved ones everything they want, but that is usually not possible. And I think we tend to appreciate that gifts that come from the heart – in that case the price definitely doesn’t matter. I gathered some gift ideas that won’t empty out your wallet.
…and why do I always buy something from this brand when I stop by an Urban Decay store while travelling abroad. To be honest, it’s one of the most quality brands and I’ve never been disappointed with any product I bought until now. Yes, it’s a bit more on the expensive side and that’ s why the famous Naked palette hasn’t found it’s way to my make up drawer…yet! I also adore Urban Decay as its makeup is cruelty-free, it doesn’t test on animals and doesn’t allow others to test on their behalf. If you need additional proof – the brand is certified by PETA and The Leaping Bunny Program as cruelty-free. A lot of their products are also vegan.
Currently, there are three ”makeup essentials” by Urban Decay in my make up drawer: a primer, a makeup setting spray and a lipstick.
The first month of 2017 is almost over and I’m already thinking about where I would like to travel this year. I would like to say that it’s a realistic wishlist, but it’s actually a product of a daydreaming Sunday. Hopefully, I’ll travel to at least one of these locations, but we’ll see what the time will bring. Even though I would like to just pack my suitcase and go, there are some compromises I have to make with my studies, my job and my wallet. So where do I want to travel to this year (only limited to places I haven’t been to yet – finding extremely cheap tickets to London and spending a few days there has been a constant every year or two :))
Before I decided to get a gel manicure, my nails were in an awful state for a few years. First, I worked in a cafe, then in a store – washing the dishes all the time and carrying lots of boxes around did a lot of damage. Then there was the first year of postgraduate study and along with it came a lot of stress. I changed the field of study and after focusing mainly on design and practical work for a few years, it was difficult to get used to reading lots of books and writing seminar papers. As a result, I started biting my nails and it was almost impossible to make them look decent. Therefore I decided to try out gel nails and see how it feels to have long nails again.
You can never have too many lipsticks, right? I always wear at least three shades in my purse everywhere, I just put them in my cosmetic bag (I’m one of those people who carry their hand cream, a pocket mirror and a black eye pencil everywhere, along with some plasters – I’m a clumsy girl:)) and then switch them depending on the time of the year or the occasion. Or sometimes, I just keep adding them until I can’t close the bag anymore and then I make a selection. All in all, I’m definitely a lipstick person. I tried out Lipstick collection Makeup Artist Pro Favorites by Freedom makeup and I have some nice things to tell you about it.
Pink hasn’t been on the list of my favourite colours since I was 12, but this year, pink kind of grew on me.Maybe it sneaked into my life through some beauty products I loved and soon there was more and more pink on my shelves. And which are the three pink products I would like to tell you about?
Mysterious, bold and elusive Arlésienne represents free and self-confident woman from the south of France.
As you maybe saw on my Instagram story, I was at the second conference of Slovenian beauty bloggers – Beautiful Bloggers Meetup. I will tell you more about it later, but first, I would like to tell you something about the new L’Occitane line – Arlésienne. Thanks to L’Occitane (:)) we got the chance to try out new products before they are available in the stores. Yay! 😀
I know I have been away lately, but I got some great news I would love to share with you – I got a job at the City Museum! So I had to dedicate the last few weeks to learning a billion new stuff about history and communication, and now, I am preparing for the exam I have to take to start guiding groups around the museum. But I just have to take some breaks to write something here, right?:)
