August Favorites!

Hello Loves! Hope you’re having great Monday!

It’s almost the end of the month and Summer and I just can’t believe it! It’s makes me so sad! Summer is my favorite season and it always happens so fast! But the good news is with the end of this month also comes new post of my month’s favorites to share with you! Let’s take advantage of those last warm days and now go straight to the post!

The first fave item are those Topshop mom jeans I wore the hell out off since I got them! I was looking for a good mom fit a long time, but nothing I tried was a good fit. They were cut off in a wrong places, flattened my butt, looked weird in front or simply they were too buggy for my petite silhouette. These Topshop ones were on a big sale so I decided to risk it and order them online still being little skeptic how they will fit. But guys! They do and they are such a great fit! Love them so much! (with heels they look killer!)

Second favorite is my old fave Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. Probably most of you, who are a little bit into makeup, heard about this mascara! So what more can I say? It’s the best one yet I’ve tried, very affordable and easily buildable without the unnatural effect (I’m not a fan of spider lushes). My always very safe go to product.

Third fave is my new Hoola Matte Bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics. I recently purchased it in Sephora. Finally! In a previous month’s favorites I’m gushing over Bronze Goddess by Esteé Lauder with never trying Hoola. Well, I did try it and it’s amazing! I have to say it’s not surprising to me anymore that so many people love this product! It’s so pigmented and flattering most of the skintones! It’s just gorgeous! I’m in love! ❤FullSizeRender

And last but not least is my fave fragrance atm! I’m just obsessed! If you want to find out why, just click HERE for a separate post I made about this baby!

 

What are your month’s favorites? Let me know!

Summer in Bulgaria: Fashion Haul! 

Hello Loves and happy Monday!

Sorry for skipping two weeks, 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! Me and my boyfriend went for a week to Bulgaria to sunny beach. It was amazing! If you’d like me to make another post on our trip leave a comment below, tweet me or leave a comment on my instagram.

This week I’d like to share with you all my newest clothing purchases I made for my trip. I honestly can say that all of those pieces are so comfortable and affordable too!

Let’s start form the essentials for a beach vacation: swimming suits! This cute bikini is from H&M and it’s comfortable and something really feminine that I loved to wear it at the beach or by the pool. Bra also have removable straps. I din’t use them, so I also didn’t include them on a photo.

Second, black one-piece is from Zara. I never thought I’d find there actual swimsuit. I saw it by accident and it was exact design I was looking for earlier. It feels incredibly comfortable and very sexy on. Dries very fast! Can we also talk about this adorable ruffle?!

I also was looking for a nice cover up just to throw on while going from pool to get a drink and not feel too exposed wearing only a bikini. I found this one and fell in love! It’s from asos and the colour is just amazing! I feel like a sexy goddess wearing it! Its super light material is flowing on the wind. What else do you need right?

IMG_4660

This bra from H&M is surprisingly well cut and it looks bomb on! It’s super trendy right now because of its stripes going opposite ways on the upper boob part and I think I need to get the same one in black too! I wear it all the time!

I couldn’t help myself and not purchase this top. I thought I would wear it once or twice, beacuse it’s so sheer it’s hard to find a right occasion (beside a hot summer night) to wear it on its own. I wore it without any bra and actually nobody could see anything. It’s really flirty and cute with a great coverage as well. Not only for super small boobs! I am 34C or 70D if anybody wonders. Depends on the store and model. So I would say I’m medium small and it worked for me.

These high waisted culottes, also from H&M (not available anymore, but similar here), are perfect to pair with some black tiny top and some heels. They’re quite out there but such a versatile and still neutral statement piece!

Let’s go to accesories. I got this corset form Zara (not available in black, but the same one in white is here) and love to wear it to add some edge to my simple outfits. It looks really cool to use as a belt with super oversized shirt (could be your boyfriend’s :P) that you’ll make to a dress and maybe pair it with some slip ons!

I also went for some shoe hunting and got these super comfortable sliders, mules and flat sandals! Black ones are form H&M, red mules from Zara (not available anymore, but similar here) and leopard printed sandals are from Topshop.

Sephora Face Masks review

Hi Loves and happy Monday!

For today’s post I prepared a review of two Sephora Masks. One is a full face rose mask and second one is just a charcoal nose strip.

On Saturday I decided to pumper myself and use the full face rose mask ($6). It is supposed to brighten and moisturize your skin. I kept it on, as it said on the packaging, for 15 mins and have to say the whole process was really relaxing and felt very luxurious (I’m not used to do masks often as you can tell). After those 15 minutes I took it off and instantly felt refreshed. I massaged any leftovers of the mask into my skin. Honestly, I could feel that mask helped me with moisturizing my face more than I could see it. So visually I didn’t see much difference. Although my skin felt great! Did it brighten my complexion? I don’t think so. If so, then very slightly.

The nose strip I used on my boyfriend because he was asking me if I have this super famous black peel off mask, which I didn’t. I offered him this Sephora one and he was quite pleased with the result. Before using it don’t forget to read the instructions! I didn’t pay attention that nose, beside being clean, should also be damp. But after all, with a little help of wet towel, it got stuck to my love’s nose and worked as promised. Results were ok, without revelation. I think you could find something better for that price ($3).

Will I use this again? The nose strip – I don’t think that I’ll bother with it. The rose face mask – Maybe yes, before important event or just to pamper and spoil myself a little bit!

Did you use some of Sephora masks? Which ones? Did you like them or not? Share below! I’d love to hear about your masks experiences!

P.S. Keep your eyes peeled on the next post! It will be my June favourites!

Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream – Review 

Hello Loves! Hope you have a great Monday!

For this week’s post I decided to do a review of Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream which I’ve recently purchased. And guys…! I LOVE it!

In a few posts back I was raving about Garnier BB cream and how perfect it was for my super pale complexion. I still love it though! The thing is I’m leaving with my bae for holidays July 16th to Bulgaria and since I’m so pale and easily get a sun burn (I never get tanned, always red 😭)  my boyfriend suggested that maybe I should go to solarium few times before our trip. And so I did (soon I’ll make a post about the whole experience being first time in solarium). Now I’m way darker than I used to be (read: just not so pale anymore). Any foundation/bb cream which back then was too dark for me (that’s why I switched for Garnier BB cream in shade extra light)  now is too light!

For a few days I didn’t wear any makeup but I didn’t feel comfortable enough to keep it that way. First I wanted to go to Sephora and buy a good quality bb cream from Nars or Clinique. Then I thought I don’t know how long I’ll stay that tanned and if I decide to keep it after vacation with trips to solarium or fake tanner. I decided to not spend that much money and look for a cheaper option. So I went to my drugstore to look for something that will fit my current skin tone. I was going to pick something from L’oréal but I think they just had a sale because the stand was a mess and they didn’t have a lot of products. Then I walked up to Borjois and Rimmel stands. In both I found bb creams I liked but couldn’t decide between them. I checked reviews on the internet and definite winner was Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream.

It’s not too expensive (costs around $13), it was on sale for half price so without thinking I picked it up! I chose shade 32 light beige and it matches my skin tone perfectly! I haven’t found any other foundation/cc/bb cream to match me this good! I was amazed! The only bad thing is that it is only available (at least where I bought it) in 4 shades. Some are with pink some with yellow undertones. It is definitely not enough colors for everyone. The cc cream itself is very liquid and you don’t need much to cover your face, so you have to be careful with that. I saw that it looks best applied with BeautyBlender or other makeup sponge. With fingers it looks a little bit too heavy for me. It has very good and natural coverage. I use BioOil as a moisturizer and it leaves me with a very dewy, gorgeous and glowing skin. Sometimes I like to powder my T zone. And what is super important it stays on face way longer than any bb or cc cream I’ve tried! It’s my holy grail now!

Let me know if you have used it! Do you like it or not so much? Will you try it?

500 Followers Q&A – My Inspiration & How To Get More Followers

How do you find inspiration? 

I usually write about what I find interesting at the moment. Sometimes it happens when I buy something for myself and feel the need to share it with you. The other time I’d feel like sharing my tips I think you’ll find helpful.

How do you keep yourself motivated? 

I schedule a day and time to post and I stick to it. I used to post twice a week but for now I don’t have time to do it that often so I chose Monday. When I’ll finish my academic year I’ll definitely come back to post on Thursdays as well!

How did you get so many followers in a short space of time?

Honestly? I have no idea! Haha! I’m really overwhelmed with the response and so happy you enjoy to read my blog!

Do you have some tips on how to get more followers?

Well, I think in this case consistency is the key. Quality of pictures you upload is very important. Remember to use your own voice and stay yourself – everybody is already taken! Don’t do it for likes and followers, do it only because you enjoy it! Last advice of mine would be to stay engaged with community. Good luck!

Can you share any tips for anyone just starting out blogging?

I feel like I’m just starting myself! Haha! My tip could be to just go with your guts and write about what you’re passionate about.

How do you cheer yourself up on a gloomy day?

I try to do something to treat myself. Good food, good drink, watch a movie or series I love.

What beauty product could you not live without?

Foundation!

Long4Lashes – Review – Best Serum for Longer & Thicker Lashes!

Hello loves and happy Monday!

In march I was thinking briefly about getting eyelashes extensions. I saw on instagram how gorgeous girls looked with them on and I wanted to try it myself. What I didn’t like about the extensions was their price. And that you have to repeat it monthly. So I waited. Then I stumbled across a review (I believe it was honest, author wasn’t affiliated with the brand) of eyelash serum. She said “I don’t even put mascara on, because lashes would disturb me when I wear glasses by touching the lenses” (so long!!) She also said her lashes looked like fake ones (long, thick and shiny), but they were 100% natural. Then she showed some pictures before and after and promised it will work on anyone. Full results to be seen in 6 months of daily use. Well, it’s quite some time – I thought.

Few weeks later my drugstore had annually sale, 49% off all beauty products. While picking powders and eyeliners I saw lash serum by Oceanic, which I’ve read review about earlier. It was on sale too, so without hesitation I grabbed it and put it in my basket. It’s not super expensive, but neither super cheap. I don’t know if it wasn’t on sale I would have taken it. But guys! Thank God I did!

Well, I haven’t used an eyelash serum in my life before this one, but I feel very lucky I didn’t have to go through bunch of other not so good ones to finally find this! I also can’t give you a full review and show how my eyelashes look after 6 month since I’ve been using it for like 2 weeks, but OMG! I’ve been using it just for 2 weeks and I can already see results! My lashes are so much longer and seem thicker. I feel like I even have more of them! When I put mascara on they look super long and gorgeous! You should use it only once per day, before going to sleep on a clean face (means no make up!) just on your lush line. I can’t recommend you this serum enough and it’s just the start of my journey of using this product! I’ll update you later after around 2 months of usage and we will see if this excitement is still real!

For now I leave you with Long4Lashes website so you can read all about it.
