My New Favorite Summer Scent!

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

This week I would like to share with you my recent fragrance discovery! Nobody of my friends or family can’t believe that I’ve changed my fragrance. Well, yes, I did but just for summer 😉 For years and years (exactly 7 years) I was totally faithful to my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum. I feel like this scent was just made for me. My hairdresser always pointed out my scent, how much she likes it and that I never change it. Coco Mademoiselle seemed so perfect for me and I got so used to it, I just never thought about changing it up. What for if it’s the best? Without it I feel like I do when forgot my phone. It also always makes me calmer. It’s just magic!

After how I praised this scent it’s probably hard to believe that I found another one I love. It was always hard for me to find a scent I like. I like florar, but not too florar. I definitely don’t like sweet scents and those woody, deep and heavy ones make me feel like they would suit someone older than me. I’m just super picky about it. It doesn’t mean that when I’m at Sephora I don’t go and sniff some perfumes. I like to do it, but until just a few weeks back I haven’t liked anything else.

Me and my boyfriend were at the airport on a way for our summer vacation. I went into Victoria’s Secret to look around, since it was duty free I was hoping to find some bargain. I didn’t find anything I was looking for but I sniffed Bombshell Eau de Parfum and suddenly I felt something! I didn’t hate it! I liked it! I liked it a lot actually! I was really surprised with myself. Haha! I sprayed my hand and the whole day I was sniffing my wrist still doubting myself that I really like it. Well, guess what!

I liked it so much I decided to get a bottle. Now it reminds me our amazing vacations! Sun, beach, piĂąa coladas and the warm water, hot weather and fancy dinners by the seaside. The scent is quite hard to describe. I feel like it’s fresh and little floral and little sweet too, but somehow this combination works so well for me! It just so well made and none of the scent ingredients is not too strong. It’s very well blended. I’d never thought it’s floral if I didn’t read it on a box*. Well… I guess I like floral and a little bit of fruity sweetness now, because this scent just stole my heart. No wonder it’s such a classic at VS! Highly recommend!

And what is your favorite scent? Do you have one and only or you like to switch it up? Let me know! And what do you think about the ones I’ve wrote about? Did you ever sniffed them?

1000 Followers Q&A

Hello loves!

Sorry for missing two Mondays, but I didn’t have enough of time before I left for my holidays to schedule blog posts. But I’m back! Happy, rested and tanned! Because of that I post exceptionally today.

I collected all your questions from the thank you post after hitting a huge milestone! 1000 followers (now actually already 1228)! Thank you so much! ❤

How often did you post when you started the blog and what kept you motivated? 

First I posted once per week. Different days. I tried to see which day suits me the best and is the most comfortable for me to post on. I chose to post on Mondays. Then I tried to post twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays), which with my academy and work schedule was super hard so I switched back to posting only on Mondays.

What kept me motivated I think was that I truly enjoy to do it, so it was simply a getaway from work/home stuff.

How did you get into blogging? And what are you aspirations for the future? (Blogging wise or personal)

I was looking for another getaway beside making art and music from everyday life. I was very, very hesitant to start my blog. Whom for I’ll be doing it? Will people like to read it? I finally decided to do it for myself and I didn’t want anyone to know about it. Till today nobody from my family and friends knows that I have a blog. I never imagined my blog will be taken so well by you loves. I can’t believe you really enjoy it! I’m very grateful.

Aspirations? Let’s see when it will all take me. I’m gonna keep doing what I love and write more post, trying to still improving in every aspect of blogging. Hopefully I’ll make myself do more fashion/outfits posts and maybe some makeup tutorials that will include more me in pictures. It’s just I’m too camera shy. I have a lot of insecurities and it’s really hard for me. But let’s say that that is my goal for now. 🙂

If you could go anywhere for a dream vacation, where would you go?

New York or Aruba!

Pizza or pasta?

Pasta!

What is your favourite scent?

I love Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum the most in the world! It’s 100% my scent. I use them everyday for a good 7 years! I could say it’s my signature scent now. Haha. But I have to admit recently I fell in love with a Bombshell Eau de Parfum from Victoria’s Secret. I just got a bottle and it smells like summer! Love it!

 If you were to get a tattoo, what would it be?

I already have a tattoo! I wrote a blog post about the whole story of me getting it. Although I want a second one already! Definitely it will be something about NYC. I was thinking just about tiny letters.

Who is your celebrity style inspiration?

I have a lot! I love Gigi Hadid and bloggers Samantha Maria and my girl Maffashion.

If you were a superhero, what would your name and power be?

Name? Idk! haha, but my power will definitely be teleporting!

Everyday beauty essentials

 

In this blog post I’d like to share with you all my beauty essentials I use daily. Having my little routine and using the same products each day helps me stay organised and definitely saves some time when I rush from the shower having 30 minutes to do my make up, hair and choose the right clothes.

Depending on my mood, sometimes I change the lip product, don’t use anything at all or just a simple lip balm. The look itself is very simple, looks fresh and natural.

It took me some time to build and complete my daily weekday make up routine. I was experimenting and switching the products pretty often. One day I noticed that I started to look for and grab the same products each day. And that how I discovered my natural makeup routine.

Everyday those 8 essentials help me feel fresh and glowing all day long and achieve that effortless and natural look in just few minutes.

BENEFIT POREfessional Face Primer 

I love this primer because it leaves my skin very smooth and silky and oil free for a long time! I can also see a big difference in appearance of my pores – they look way smaller. Definitely makes foundation stay longer too. I used to not use primers at all, but when i tried it and saw how big difference it makes I never looked back!

AA LUMI foundation (001 Ivory)

This foundation costs almost nothing and it lasts quite a long time! It gives my skin nice glow and looks very natural. You can also build it up, but it is light coverage.

NYX HD concealer

Sometimes I use it and sometimes not. Depending how tired I look. I use it under eyes and in places I want to brighten my complexion. I noticed that it dries pretty quickly and sometimes at the end of the day leaves those lines of built up product in under eye area. Although I find it as a very good coverage concealer that lasts decent amount of time.

VICHY Dermablend powder

Really good loose powder. It comes with a little sponge, but I prefer to use my brush. It sets my make up very well and it makes my skin matt without looking cakey.

TOO FACED Better Than Sex Mascara

I have waterproof version and believe me I cried so many times wearing it and nothing happened (not that I cry a lot)! It gives lashes gorgeous volume and length. I like to brush through my lashes after I put this mascara on for less dramatic look.

NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel

Perfect transparent eyebrow gel. Keeps brows in a desirable shape all day long! Nothing to add, just a great product!

NARS Blush in “Orgasm”

I was thinking for a long time about if to purchase this blush. I’ve heard a lot about it and all opinions were very positive. When I finally got it I just told myself : “It was so worth it!” Nars’s Orgasm is a natural, coral – pink shade with a little bit of golden shimmer. I think it is perfect for every skin tone. It is very pigmented and leaves the skin with very healthy, warm glow. I didn’t think that I would love it so much!

CLARINS Lipliner Pencil (02 nude beige)

I really like this lipliner the most for its colour and that it’s long-lasting! Sometimes I feel it can dry lips a little, but a simple lip balm usually does the trick.

CHANEL Coco Chanel Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum

And finally! Creme de la creme! Without using this perfume I never leave the house! It’s such a statement piece for me. Something about this scent it gives me a kick of confidence and makes me feel like myself in 100%. It’s a touch of luxury everyday. I found them, fell in love and I can’t imagine using any other sent!

With the combination of everyday dainty jewellery (including two rings and a necklace I never take off) this scent just put the look together and makes me ready for my day!

Tell me in comments what are your favorite everyday products! Maybe we share some?
