Signal White now touch

I've wanted to go and get my teeth whitened for such a long time. In my opinion I have nice teeth, but their color always bugs me. They're actually pretty white, but I want that Hollywood smile, you know.
I've found some dental offices which would do this for me, but they're usually really expensive and most of them go with removing one or few layers of your tooth enamel which ultimately ruins your teeth. There are also those whiteners with light and some other options as well. However, I'm too scared they'll all ruin my teeth so I opted for this more affordable solution.

Fluffy knitted leather

I've wanted (fake) leather jeans for quite a while now and I actually got them last year. The problem occurred when the time to style and wear them actually came. I had no clue how to put anything together with them. I always play safe and I've worn jeans all my life.

What's going on? | A little life update

Hello. My last info post was in August so I wanted to update you all on what's currently going on in my life, how this blog is gonna continue to run and some other stuff. You can find all posts of this sort under category "Info posts". I'll try to categorize this post so read what you find interesting. Also, this one is going to be the most personal I've written here.
P.S. There's something about a giveaway in the end.

Metal shock eyeshadows by Essence

Another Essence post? Oh God. Yes, I'm that girl. Anyway, I showed you these in my New in: make-up | summer-fall 2017 post and I told you that I'll give more attention to some products in my New in: make-up | follow-up post where I gave brief reviews of more than 10 products (so go check that out too). Today I'm presenting new liquid eyeshadows by Essence.

I already one separate post on some products and you can read it in Essence butter sticks lipsticks post. However, metallic make-up has become really popular lately and we are all looking for some great affordable options for following this trend.

Fall fashion | 2017 no black! (part 2)

I hope you saw part one of this fashion post as I did some conventional fall looks there (meaning there are long pants in all outfits). This post would be more my style when I go out to meet my friends.
https://www.polyvore.com/no_286/set?id=229760070
As I said in part one, I decided to use only fall colors which also excluded black. Creating 12 looks without black was a real challenge for me so tell me how I did...

Essence butter sticks lipsticks

I've shown you these in my New in: make-up | summer-fall 2017 post, but I also announced their separate review in my New in: make-up | follow-up post. As you all know I have a weak spot for lipsticks and Essence, it would only be fair if I showed them all the attention they deserve.
I have two lipsticks of each formula - matte and glossy. Let me start by saying that I love the fact they gave options both in color and in formulas and finish.

Black peel-off mask: Iroha vs. Balea

Lately, my blackheads have really started to annoy me. Don't ever Google the word 'blackhead'. I just saw everything. Gross. So I've been trying to find a good way to remove them all!
I thought it would be a great idea to do a comparison rather than just a review post because they are supposed to do the same, but with a big difference in prices.

L'Oreal micellar water

Make-up lovers also need a good make-up remover. And we usually struggle with finding a good, efficient and strong, but gentle one. There's also a struggle with different types of skin. So far, I've been loving Garnier micellar water which I introduced in my Make-up removers (Garnier vs Nivea vs Essence post a while back.

If you read it, you know I liked it then, but I learned to love it after more usage. It was just the best choice. Then I finished a bottle and I was in a need of something new.

New in: make-up | follow-up post

Few weeks back I posted my New in: make-up | summer-fall 2017 post showing you what I got myself during past few weeks (months?). I promised I would do the follow-up post which I've never actually done before.
Some products will not be featured here because I want to do full reviews on those so keep coming back to see when they'll be posted. I'll keep this short and sweet.

Fall fashion | 2017 no black! (part 1)

I already showed you what I got for fall in my New in: late summer/fall fashion 2017 post. However, I have many more ideas and not enough money to get it all so I'll show you some more fall outfits.
Note: All outfits can be found on the links below the pictures and all items are visible on the links. Just hover over the item and you'll see the name, brand and the price.
https://www.polyvore.com/no_284/set?id=229758211
For this post (and part 2) I've decided not to include anything black and go for only true fall colors! I'm a huge fan of black color in clothing and I think it's the easiest color to combine. I also go for the safest option when putting together a look. So this was a real challenge.

Green silver nails

What to do when you realize in the middle of the night that you didn't do your post for tomorrow and you didn't do your manicure for a week? You make the most of it and post this exact manicure. So here I am.
My phone is also not working so I'm using some old one which has a bad camera. That's why all pictures are the same and there are not different hand poses like in the rest of my 'Nails' posts. Oh well...

My NYX lipstick collection

In a post My lipstick collection I showed you everything I have in that department. However, as I have more than one lip product by NYX I decided to show them in a separate post.
Prepare yourself for some swatches and reviews.
Note: I'll probably buy some more NYX lipsticks from different lines so I'll review them sometime later.

Essence eyeshadow palettes (all 6)

You know how much I love Essence. I say that in every post that has their products in there. There's also a tag on the left that shows I have majority of my posts about Essence cosmetics. To cut to the chase, I bought all six of their All about... eyeshadow palettes and I want to show them all to you.
There's one more palette now containing all bright colors. That one is from their new collection, but colors are too bright and too similar to my Makeup Revolution Acid brights palette so I won't be buying that palette.

The sunshine blogger award | tag

Every now and then I get tagged in some post and I love those. I love answering these questions and I love reading them as I find out something new about a person every single time. This time Katie from Beauty from Katie tagged me in The sunshine blogger award tag and I'm here to answer her questions. Thank you Katie!
This is a lot like the Infinity Dream Awards post I did more than a year ago. Keep tagging me in these, please! Haha. I rarely share something personal here, so I think these posts are a great break from beauty related posts.
Rules: thank the person who nominated you, answer the questions they tagged you to do and nominate more people for the award!

Jessup brushes review

Few months ago (read: last year) I ordered these brushes because I wanted to step up my game without losing much money. I saw these on the site Pink Panda (Balkan area only?) and they were on discount so I knew it was the perfect time to get them.

I also know these are cruelty free because Pink Panda doesn't sell anything that isn't cruelty free. Also, they have variety of colors. I wanted black/gold combination, but these were, as I said, on discount so I got these (little did I know they put different colors on discount very often).

New in: late summer/fall fashion 2017

I've set up so many polls on Twitter asking whether you would like to see any of my fashion hauls. Every time I asked, majority was voting 'yes' and I never did it. Don't know why. Finally, after months of waiting, I'm here with a fashion haul and I tried on everything. This is supposed to be a fall edition, but summer clothing was on sale so I, of course, took some of that.
Don't mind my weird poses which are all the same. This is my first try on post. Also, I know all of these don't work well with my body, but I'm kinda making myself get in shape by this (?). Also, I now realize I should have put an actual outfit with jackets and all, but I just put on what I bought recently. And I also forgot to change my shoes. Luckily, these go with everything. It's gonna be better next time. Anyhow, let's get on with the photos.
Note: Please acknowledge my super improvised background. Yes, it's a white bed sheet.

Purple gold manicure

How long has it been since I posted a manicure post? Two weeks? Seems like a lifetime. Although posts about nails and manicures bring me the least views and comments, nails are my biggest passion here so I'll never stop posting them. I sometimes get comment how my manicures are hard to do by a beginner (which I don't think it's the case at all), so I love posting these simple manicures every once in a while.
Today I have a super easy and elegant manicure. You can do it in half an hour and I guarantee it will catch some looks. I also love this contrast between deep purple shade and gold. To make it stand out even more, add a matte top coat and then shiny rhinestone.

Lush bath bomb Dragon's Egg

I've entered Lush stores before, but I never actually bought anything. This time was different. As I live with my parents, I had to wait to have the apartment to myself so I could really take the entire bathroom and enjoy the bath. This day finally came and I dedicated this time only to myself.
Find all information about this bomb, including the price, in the given links.
I asked Lush's official Twitter page which one would they recommend as I've done 0 research and I've never had their bath bomb before. They offered some, but we don't have those in our country so I got Dragon's Egg. I decided only based on good smell.

New in: make-up | summer-fall 2017

I was on a vacation for 6 weeks in total and I didn't buy anything in that time. I was also waiting for some new fall collections to come to our stores so I waited. Now that I found everything I wanted, I'm about $50 lighter and full of new stuff.
Also, why do I have separate photos? I bought stuff on one and thought I would make it a post. Then I saw some other stuff and bought that too. And I'm not as organized as you may think so I already put my stuff all over the place. Some stuff are also at my friend's place. Great. And I still didn't capture all items in these photos.

Kiehl's tester products

About two months ago I walked in a Kiehls store expecting to buy the most popular oil in the beauty world. To be honest, that's the only thing I knew Kiehls had. I also saw free skin testing which I was really interested in. A girl there tested my skin in about 5 minutes and I already got some testers exactly for my skin type to try out.
Now that I've used them all, I can make some honest review. I had about 3 week pause in between (not on purpose, but taking opened testers on vacation would be really hard) using these so I can also see the difference.

Summer manicures

Summer is slowly coming to an end, but that won't stop me from posting some more summer related topics. Summer is definitely not my favorite season, but it's the season when I go most crazy with my manicures with all neon colors and colorful designs.
 
Now you'll see three different manicures I did this summer I loved the most. I'll probably do a separate post just for my favorite out of these favorites so your job it to guess which one that will be.
Note: For better pictures, open this post...

My Essence lipstick collection

It's no secret that I absolutely love Essence. As I said many times before, they're super affordable, cruelty free, with some great products! What's not to love? Anyway, as I announced in one of previous posts, I'm going to show this collection separately. For my entire lip product collection, check My lipstick collection post.
I'm really happy to have this collection and I wish to get more. Stay tuned for my new make-up haul coming soon. I'm showing you both hand and lip swatches with and without flash so I really hope you'll like it.

Shopping tips

If you knew me, like really knew me, you would know that I love shopping. Honestly, I talk about it a lot more than I actually do it and my friends have a feeling I shop every single day, but I don't. I like to browse a lot and I am in stores every other day, but I rarely actually buy something. Why am I justifying myself to you?
I already shared with you my tips on how to shop online so check it out. Anyway, I'm here today to share 7 tips on how to shop and prepare yourself better as I went shopping just yesterday.
Note: BREAKING NEWS!!! You'll actually see everything I got! I announced try-on post a lot of times, but you'll get this one! Comment if you want it :)

Floral accent in chilly summer

I don't how it is at your place, but we're still in summer mode. I chose some outfits which were made around one floral piece. These are perfect for chilly summer nights (as well as these were I already published in a previous post Floral summer evening). For another summer outfits post read my Beach outfits | summer 2017 post.

Pizza roll recipe

I'm no cook. I think you know that by now, but I do enjoy quick and tasty meals. Most of my food ideas come from Tasty YouTube channel or their Facebook page. Although I always say I'll make something, I rarely actually do cause my mom still does the cooking around the house.
Since I was waiting for my brother to get home (and he's always hungry), I decided to make something really easy which I was sure he'll like.

I'm on a vacation | summer 2017

I wasn't sure whether I would do this or not, but I'm going on a vacation (I already am on a vacation as you read this) and I decided that my blog needs a week off too.
This wouldn't be the case if I had Internet on my vacation, but since I didn't manage to enable it and take my laptop with me, there won't be a post this next week. I'll be back soon and then we're gonna get back on track. I honestly hope that this one week vacation won't terribly affect my blog and that you'll still be here when I come back.

I'm coming back on 28th of August OR 4th of September with some new ideas!

As usual, thank you for coming, reading and commenting. Contact me if you have any suggestions or questions.

THANK YOU!
& have a great summer (or winter?)

4 smoothie recipes

Is summer perfect for smoothies or what? Although we're going towards the end of the summer, I'm still loving them and they're basically all I eat during these hot days. They're easy to make and so tasty. To be honest, I don't know if you can go wrong with mixing fruits.
Today I'll show you 4 easy recipes for really tasty smoothies I made. There are no weird ingredients or special ways of making them. You'll just need a blender and cute cups.

Pack with me

As I mentioned in a previous post about summer vacation skincare and beauty essentials, I'm going on a three week vacation. Now, I'm traveling by bus on some relations so I need to pack bus friendly - meaning one suitcase and maybe one backpack. 
I also made a free packing list for all seasons. I really hope you won't forget anything while packing. And now I'll show you just few tricks how to pack more efficiently with less things and more space.

Dream dressing room

I know I keep this blog mostly for beauty, hair and skin care products, but I got an email proposing an idea to design my dream dressing room. At first, I wasn't quite fond of the idea as I'm not that kind of blogger, but I do have a word 'lifestyle' in the title and, since I incorporated some recipes already, I think I can put here something different like this.
Note: Although they did reach out to me, this is not a sponsored post. I don't get anything by doing this. To be honest, I don't know what they're gaining out of this (since I'm not even mentioning them)...

03 August 2017

My lipstick collection

Some time last year, I realized that putting on just a lipstick can make you look more put together in the shortest possible time and without any special effort so I started buying them. I haven't even thought I would reach for them this often. Since I realized I have more lipsticks and lipglosses than a "normal" girl would have, I thought it's time to share the collection with you.
I keep all my lip products in these two acrylic stands and one glass which is actually a candle holder painted in my currently favorite color - copper. I also modified larger stand so it would have more storage space and I showed it to you in my DIY post about it.

Summer vacation skincare & beauty essentials

I've already been on a one week vacation, but I'm looking forward to my 3 week vacation in the late August. As I planned this first week in quite a rush, I forgot some things (although I made a free packing list). Now I know what I really need in my beauty bag, so read my list.
As you can see, during summer, I don't really worry about makeup as I tend to go all natural wherever I go. However, some minor improvements may be necessary so I included those too. I'll start with and concentrate on the skin care products.

28 July 2017

No post 27.7.2017.

As you can see I didn't post yesterday. I had (have) some family problems (nothing too serious, but enough not to be able to work on my blog). Also I didn't have Internet for 3 days.

New post will be up on Monday as scheduled.

Thank you for coming!

Barry M color changing lip paint

You can't tell me you've never been intrigued by weird colors in make-up. There’s something really appealing in colors you know you’ll probably never wear. But you have to have them. I always think these would look great for a photoshoot. When am I ever going to have a photoshoot? 
For most days, I keep my make-up simple and very ordinary. Standard brownish smokey eyes, just a bit of bronzer and a nice mauve lipstick is all I need. Then I did this look and everything changed. However I still needed an every day make-up.

Remington Pro spiral curl tong

I already wrote one 'hair tool' post and I said I got something else which is a hair curler. Let me introduce you to my new favorite thing. If you want to read part one of this, post is Simply straight straightening brush.
As I have curly hair by nature, I never thought I would actually want, need or love a hair curler. Also my family doesn't know anything about hair or beauty, so I never expected something like this, but they did great with this one.

What's in my bag | summer 2017

I change my bags a lot. Whenever I go somewhere I pair my bag with the rest of the outfit. You can see all of my bags in the post My bag collection. However I always keep my essentials in one bag ready to go just in case I really need to storm out. Currently, all my stuff are in a black backpack that usually goes great with all of my casual everyday outfits.
I usually carry only stuff I really need so you won't find old receipts, expired stuff or anything like that. I can proudly say I keep my bag really neat.

Beach outfits | summer 2017

Hello summer! I have the need to welcome summer in every post now. I'm so happy I finished my college year and I'm free for 3 and a half months. Can we have 'hell yeah'? Thanks. Of course, with summer, most people will be heading to pools or, those lucky ones, to real seaside. Also, if you're not lucky like me to have the beach half a minute walk from your apartment (not bragging and not exaggerating), you need some clothes to the beach. Here are 6 summer beach outfits.

White, gold, blue, black manicure

Summer always brings the most of my creativity. Usually. For this manicure I took inspiration from one of my favorite nail artists out there - Yagala S. I feel like I always fail a bit when I have short nails. I'll let you be the judge of it.

SkinPro cleansing device

If you care for your skin at all, you know that cleaning it is the most important thing. You can't cover bad skin with makeup or by tanning it. You need to clean your skin properly. Here's where this device should come in handy. It's SkinPro cleansing device by Oriflame.
I bought it for about $50* and I also bought these two additional brush heads for $7. I've used it for a month and a half now and I'm ready to write first impressions, whole review and to tell you whether I would recommend it or not. You can order it on Oriflame's site (linked above) or on Amazon here.

Floral summer evening

These outfits were meant to be an ideal summer evening choices, but with this weird weather, I might be needing a jacket all day long. What ever happens with the weather, I hope you'll get those perfect summer evenings with people you love the most! Have fun and enjoy my picks...

L'Oreal Paris Sublime bronze tanning tissues

If you only knew me, you would know I'm against fake tanning. And I don't just mean fake tanning in salons because that can have a bad impact on your skin. I'm talking about all kinds of fake tanning. I think it's unnecessary, people usually go overboard and white people end up being so unnaturally dark. I'm very comfortable with being very white or whatever color sun actually gives me.
However, I got in this one situation where I reached for a fake tan. To be precise, I bought these L'Oreal tanning tissues. I was at this outdoor event and I burned really bad! But after few days of taking care of it, it actually turned into a dark brown color which was great, but now I have a problem cause I was wearing a top with wide straps and now I have distinct line between light and dark skin.

No post this week


Hey. 


I'm informing you that there will be no posts this week, I'll start again next week.



I'm taking my exams now and I have to fully concentrate on that.



Thank you for coming and understanding.

Simply straight straightening brush

This past Christmas my family decided to surprise me with lots of stuff, among other, a hair curler and a hair straightener. Until now, I only had hair straightener which is now old, doesn't do it's job well and if you compare it with some other products out there, it's basically sh*t. Have in mind I got it about 10 years ago. So now I finally have proper hair salon at home.
Note: Mine is from TopShop commercials, but you can find it on Amazon here.

Real Techniques expert face brush

I never wanted branded brushes, expensive ones. I just needed a good brush that would make my make-up routine a bit easier. Foundation is the most important part of your make-up and we all want it to be good, quick and easy. I then saw a lot of reviews and videos featuring this brush so I decided to give it a try.

Balea beauty box

I got this cute package for my birthday (in January) and I only tried this now. For some reason, I wanted a perfect, calm evening for pampering in peace. I finally got that evening and here's a review.

In this box, I got one bath bomb, one shower gel and one body souffle (or body lotion). I've never tried bath bomb before so this was very new to me. I filled my tub with warm/hot water and the relaxing evening could start.

Rose-gold ombre abstract nails

This is more a mix of rose-gold, bronze and pink color, but it's still a super fun and easy manicure. As usual, I started with no idea what I'm going to do and then, about an hour and a half later, this was done.

Catrice Professional contouring palette

I haven't written a review since March. OK, I'm back. I usually start my posts with "If you know me, you'd know...", but I know I don't post myself here so you probably don't know. This one is about bronzing, contouring and highlighting. I bought this duo few months ago and it's time I share my thoughts with you. It's Catrice Prime and fine Professional contouring palette.

Music festivals fashion

I know Coachella has passed, but it's not the only music festival happening in a year so I prepared 6 outfits which I think would be great for music festivals and basically for all outings this summer. Fringes, tassels, hats and boho look in general is what screams 'festivals'. Also there are two a bit different looks so anyone can find their favorite!

25000! | Thank you!!

Hello!
I know I've done a few of these info posts lately, but this one had to be written.

I don't know how much you know about me or my blogging, but I'll just tell you I don't check statistic at all. I do it every now and then (take this very lightly) just so I could write a 'Thank you' post (last one was at the end of 2015 so...). And I mean it with all my heart. I'm really thankful that you read this, share it, comment, anything...

Last time I checked in, I was thankful for 1500 views (post is here), but today I want to thank you all for reaching over 25000 views!
25 000 !!!! Isn't that amazing? For me it is.

I'm always saying you can contribute to this blog by commenting, ranking or contacting me about anything! I'm gonna sound like every blogger ever, but I honestly appreciate everything you say or do here and I appreciate every single click on my blog. Thank you!

Not that it matters in particular, but I'd like to thank countries separately (this gives me chance to see where my "audience" lives although Blogger is messing with me so I always see different countries):

Have I missed anyone? Let me know where do you come from!

P.S. I got just over 5000 views just in April this year! I only hope I won't disappoint you or myself and that we'll keep this up! Also, there will not be another post this week, let's just celebrate this and I'll see you all next Monday :*

Thank you!!
Tell me what you think or just contact me for fun ☺

DIY lipstick holder (addition)

When I first started buying lipsticks, I never knew I would have this many of them. I first held them in my drawer, then I purchased this acrylic holder and then my friends gave me a smaller lipstick holder for 9 lipsticks. This would be enough if I didn't have lipglosses and some other lip make-up that doesn't fit the 'lipstick' category.
I don't have so much room to buy some more stands, so I decided to upgrade this one. I actually never knew what to put in this left part, so here we are now...

Spring jumpsuits and maxi dresses

I don't know what's happening with the weather, but I said we're preparing for spring and summer two months ago and it's still raining and it's quite cold here. Nevertheless, I'm here with some spring outfits perfect for every day and for some special occasions.

Manicure: Black matte leopard

It's been a long time since I did a good matte manicure. Although I usually paint 4 out of 5 (or 8 out of 10) fingers matte and then I put glitter or some kind of shine on those fingers left, this time I actually put some effort in this manicure. It's very simple and easy, but so statement!

New basic info

Hi. It wasn't that long ago that I posted one "Intro and info" post, but I had the need to update you all on some new and mostly old stuff.

As I've added new category "Life", I thought it would be a bit different than what it is now, but it's basically just a mix of everything that doesn't really fit into only one category. I was once thinking I could add "Food" category as I've made one eatable meal, but I don't like cooking or baking that much so I'll just share some quick recipes and post them all in this "Life" category (I already posted one recipe with easy sandwiches).

Posting schedule:
  • Monday 9 a.m. (09:00) CET
  • Thursday 6 p.m. (18:00) CET

Follow me on social media (links on the right) to see everything that's happening in my life :)

Also, contact me about anything (contact form on the right or in the comments). I'll would be happy to interact with you, take your suggestions and ideas :)

I would also like your advice on making a separate Instagram account for my blog. I don't fully understand how I can make two on one mobile phone and how I would handle it so any suggestion is very welcomed!

Thank you all for coming, reading, commenting, rating, everything you do here! ♥

I was planning on sharing some recipes every now and then. Have in mind that I basically suck in the kitchen and my mom does most of the cooking so I only do some quick and easy, but tasty recipes. I did one of those recently and my family loved it, so I'll share it.
Note: This isn't my original recipe. I saw it on Tasty (their YouTube here), but couldn't find it anymore so I changed it a bit. Hope you'll like it!
