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.

01 June 2017

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! ♥

04 May 2017

Recipe: Sandwich baskets

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!

Plain nails are pretty too

Whenever I post my nail design here, it's about nail art, rhinestones, stickers,... Most comments I get on those are: "I could never do this. That's why I'm not painting my nails." Now, of course, painting nails is a matter of personal preference, but if you like it and can't do nail art, you can still have pretty colored nails. Today I'll share just some of my 'plain manicures'. Of course, I don't always have time to make some fancy creations so I'll just put a coat or two of any color and maybe a glitter top coat to finish it.
Note: This are mostly by Essence and this is not sponsored. Also, I'll link all posts that I already wrote about these manicures for you to see more pictures and text cause some of these aren't finished here and some are reviews for nail polishes. All links to easy and really simple manicures are below.

Ear piercing problems & solutions

Until not that long ago, there was a picture of all tattoos I wish to get one day on the side of my blog. However, I haven't included piercings because I've already done everything I want regarding that kind of body modifications.

SheIn order

About 3 weeks ago, I saw that a site called SheIn is having a huge sale with some items at 85% off. I usually don't buy clothes online cause you really need to try some things to see if they fit you or not. However, I contacted two girls who already said they have shopped there and they were super satisfied. They just told me not to look at the sizes, but at the measurements. So I measured myself and started shopping. Here's what I got.

Note: All pictures are from their page with their models because I do think everything looks better on them than on me, but what you see is what you'll get.

Dotted french manicure

You can also see this manicure on my Instagram here photo or here profile
Are you bored with classic french manicures? (I'm not.) Or maybe you don't have a steady hand to do a nice smile line? I got you covered. This manicure is super simple, doesn't require steady hand or experience and it's perfect for experimenting with colors. Also, you can easily adjust it to the season just by choosing different colors.

My eBay jewelry no.2

Most of my jewelry is bought on eBay so I would like to share what I got. I've already done a post like this (link here) and you liked it, so I'm here with a part two. I think eBay has great and cheap jewelry and, if you're not allergic to something, you should be able to find lots of great stuff.
Note: There are more eBay jewelry in my collection, but I couldn't find it as listed anymore so I didn't include it here. Also, I've written the exact product I bought next to the link. I do not own any of these photos - those are all screenshots of the links below the pictures.

New in: 40% discount

Unlike my other posts where I actually think about writing them and how they're gonna look, this one came as an idea 5 minutes ago and now I'm writing it. I went for a walk and then ended up in a store where I, as a member, had 40% off on some products and brands.

Update: Life & blogging

Hello lovely reader!

I like to write a post like this every now and then to write down everything that's going on behind the screen of what you're reading. All posts like this are labeled with "intro and info" and categorized under "Info posts".
Last time I presented new posting schedule and this is still going strong, but I'm afraid I'll have my exams soon and won't have the time to write as much (as I don't like to write posts months ahead like some bloggers do). I won't stop posting, but this is just a warning you'll probably be seeing more nails and fashion posts rather than hauls and reviews. It takes me less time to put up a fashion post as well as post about nails. I'm actually glad that's going to happen because I've really neglected nails here.

There's also a poll I put up about skin care. Basically I'm just looking for a new brand to try out. It will take just 5 seconds of your time (it's just one question!) and it would really mean a lot to me if you went and voted. Link for poll is: https://www.poll-maker.com/poll1034040x802f42A9-43 (no signing in or anything like that).

Posting schedule:

One-floral-piece outfits

I've already put up one spring themed fashion post, but I just love spring so I'll put some more of those. Today's outfits all have only one floral piece and I combined everything around that one piece. Although I have a post coming where there will be more floral details, one is just enough to make a statement for starters.
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.

How to shop online

There was a survey in my country how many people any why they shop online. Their conclusion was: people are lazy. My reason for shopping online is: it's freaking cheaper! OK, I love browsing the stores and I buy all my clothes and shoes after I try them on, but all other stuff - jewelry, sunglasses, phone cases,... - I usually buy them online. (Maybe it's lame, but eBay is my best friend.)

Makeup Revolution Acid brights palette

As spring is coming I thought it was time to present some bright and vivid colors. This is so out of my comfort zone, but honestly I didn't care because colors are so beautiful. Also, I bought this during winter cause I'm all for spring and I wanted it to come sooner.
Note: You should know I'm not an expert in make-up.

My bag collection

I don't think I ever posted any of my clothes or accessories here, so this is a first. If you ask my mom, the biggest collection of bags ever is in my room. If you ask me, I think I need some brown, beige and silver ones as well.
Note: These are all 'fake' and the highest price is about $30. Also, I didn't include my mom's bags (we share them all) - she has 6 more. I also didn't include my fancy clutches, backpack, laptop bag and 4 more which I hold on to cause I'm sentimental.
12 here + 6 mom's = 18 bags

My nails and manicures (routine)

If you've been reading my blog, you had to notice that I have a huge love for nails, manicures and everything else involving these topics. This blog actually started as "Honey's Royalty Nails" and I only posted my manicures and how I did them with the products I used.
Now that I've taken my blog a bit further, I felt the need to tell you more about my nail routine and my nails in general. So, here are my nail facts.

Review: L'Oreal Pure clay purify mask (green one)

Are you really taking care of your skin if you don't have one of these 3 masks? Are you really a beauty blogger if you don't own them all? It's a struggle to keep up with all of it, but thankfully, I got this one for my birthday so I only have two more to go.

My shower routine

I noticed that for the past few months I always do the same things when I shower so I thought I'd share my routine with you.
Note: If I couldn't find an exact product, I tried to find similar ones or at least leave you a link to their page.

Review: Nivea day care mattifying

It's that feeling when you realize that you have to moisturize your oily skin too. And then you struggle with finding something rich enough without additional oils. And then you realize your skin can get dry too, and then you're in big problems. I think I solved mine.

Ready for spring

I'm always so excited for spring. It's my favorite season and after all these sweaters and big jackets, I'm only waiting for the time to wear something lighter. I can't wait to get out of long sleeves, so here's something I love. Also, If you knew me, you'd know that I would probably never wear these color combinations, but I'm really trying to get out of my comfort zone. So this is something I like!
