💕 LOVELY FEBRUARY: The 5 Languages of Love

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

This month, since it’s a special month when we celebrate Valentine’s Day I decided to dedicate whole February to love. Doesn’t matter if you’re in happy relationship or you’re single and proud atm, those four posts will be for everyone. Because who doesn’t like love? ❤

Every week I’ll also give you one love fact about me. Leave your in the comments!

This week I’d like to start with sharing with you the theory of 5 love languages. Some of you probably have heard about it already, but if you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s the explanation:

“The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate is a 1995 book by Gary Chapman. It outlines five ways to express and experience love that Chapman calls “love languages”: receiving gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service (devotion), and physical touch.”

They say it can really improve the communication in your relationships if you find and understand each other’s love languages (your bae’s, mum’s, dad’s, sister’s brother’s etc).

HERE you can take a quiz and find out your love language! The 5 Love Languages® profile will give you a thorough analysis of your emotional communication preference. It will single out your primary love language, what it means, and how you can use it to connect with your loved one with intimacy and fulfilment. Let’s get to it!

My love language is quality time:

In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there – with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby – makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful. Quality Time also means sharing quality conversation and quality activities.

What’s yours? Let me know in the comments!

Love fact about me: I had a few crushes but I’ve truly fallen in love when I was 23.

BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer – REVIEW

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

This week I wanted to make a review of my newest purchase. I love to try new products and few weeks ago I was looking for a good concealer that will work as well on my dark circles as on other areas where I might have a blemish or which I want to brighten up a little. I definitely wanted it to be moisturising and with natural finish. I’ve heard so much about NARS’ famous concealer I almost bought it, if not the fact in this particular Sephora where I was shopping they didn’t have my shade. Automatically I wondered to BECCA stand and decided to give their Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer a try.

01_porcelain_alpc_2

I got the lightest shade and unfortunately I have to say, for a such super pale lady as me, it’s still too dark. But fear not! It still works if I pair it with the wright makeup products. Definitely gonna be my number 1 when the sun will start to hit! Beside that fact I love this concealer and I have to say it does exactly everything the brand promises it to do.

It’s so easy to blend and is very light in consistency. It’s moisturising and you cannot feel you’re wearing it. The coverage from the other hand is light to medium, but definitely buildable. I’m sure all Becca fans and people who love natural, dewy finish with light to medium coverage will be very pleased with this product just as me!

Meaningful & Romantic Last Minute Gift For Your SO

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

Since Christmas is almost here I wanted to share with you some ideas for presents that mean a world and are super romantic, sweet and fun but actually don’t cost a penny (or could if you wish them to).

Those ideas for gifts are not reserved only for Christmas. It’s perfect for any occasion! Birthday, anniversary etc. Anytime you want to give something meaningful. Or maybe spent days on looking for a perfect gift but couldn’t find it, this one will make anyone happy!

It all started with the idea of a meaningful and romantic present I wanted to give my boyfriend for our first anniversary. It happens to be on 28th of December and after I spent so much money on all Christmas gifts for everyone I wanted to make anniversary gift even more special and give something handmade, straight from the heart.

3641A6EA-BEC7-46F7-BC11-9FF2C52BBE49

What I made is I bought a small Christmas box and 12 little envelopes. One for each month of the year. I took some of my watercolour paper and cut it to size of envelopes. Each card I decorated with abstract watercolour painting.

81025310-0F4A-4A65-8D95-9986BE2F49F1

Inside each card I wrote a love letter or a poem. So with the beginning of each month my boyfriend could enjoy a little love note from me.

Depending on occasion and person you can change absolutely anything. You can decorate the envelope as I did or just pass this step and for example buy colourful paper. You can do it fancy and buy nice box and decorations or make it from what you’re already have at home. You also don’t need a box. You can just put a bow around all the envelopes and it’ll still look great! There’re so many different ways to make this gift, mine is just an example.

Next gift idea is a little box of coupons. For this year’s anniversary I made 4 per one month for my boyfriend to draw. On each of folded cards I wrote different thing I’ll do, for example: breakfast in bed, day I won’t say “no” to you, you choose the movie etc. You can put whatever you have on mind and as many as you wish.

Also you can decorate the box with the bow or just simply put those little cards in a jar. As well as the first one, this gift you can personalise depending on the receiver.

I hope you enjoyed those simple gift ideas! I think they’re pretty romantic and with those coupons you can also spice up your relationship 😉 or bring a little bit more adventure!

 

Merry Christmas! ❤
