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! ♥

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

Thank you all for reading and commenting. I truly appreciate every single view, comment, suggestion...

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

Workout outfits

I realized that this may seem like a sponsored post as I really like Nike brand and I use them a lot. But this is not sponsored, so I included some Adidas stuff and Reebok and some no name stuff.
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.

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.
http://www.en.nivea.ca/products/face-care/daily-essentials/mixed-to-oily-skin/mattifying-day-care-jar
For combination skin. Provides deep moisture. For pure and shine-reduced skin. With ocean algae and hydra IQ. Doesn't clog pores. Reduces shine. Skin looks healthy and pretty. Dermatologically tested.

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!

Make-up removers (Garnier vs Nivea vs Essence)

As make-up has become almost daily part of my life, make-up removers are the first thing I reach for when I come home. Since I've not been into make-up for that long, I only tried 4 make-up removers so far. I'll introduce each right now.
I realized that I threw some bottles so I couldn't take pictures. These are not mine.

Essence: My must haves haul

One of my favorite brands, Essence, just came out with their new collection called "My must haves". They discontinued production of some old products, but gave us full new range of eyeshadows, palettes, lipsticks and lipglosses and many more stuff. For the first time, I didn't head directly to the nail polish rack.

Changes in posting!!!

I asked you if you want me to post more often and it's agreed that two times a week would be just perfect. I wouldn't be asking if I didn't think I had time for it, so I'm taking advantage of not having to study at the moment and I'm starting to post two times a week.

New schedule:
  • Monday 9 a.m. (09:00) CET
  • Thursday 6 p.m. (18:00) CET
I really hope this will work cause I have so many ideas and stuff to show you. :)

Essentials: Fashion

It's been a long time since I wrote my last "Essentials" post, but here I am. You'll be able to find all posts like this under the label Essentials or in the category Life. This time I'm talking about few fashion items you should have to be prepared for all situations.
Note: I'm only gonna write about female fashion as I'm a girl. If you really want to see my opinion on male fashion, comment below and I'll do essentials for them too. Also, I know there's much more to it, especially because I haven't covered every season and weather.

Transition from squoval to coffin nails

Since I've had my nails (I used to bite them; read in post here), I've always had them in squoval shape. Then something hit me right before Christmas and I decided to change them to ballerina or coffin nails. I'm here today to show you my transition.
Note: I'll still post manicures with squoval nails cause I'm not doing it in any order so bare with me. Also, scroll down for some more new manicures :)
There are more nail shapes than this, but this is just to show you my transition.

Review: Nivea blue collection for face cleansing

Few weeks (months?) ago, I was looking for a new facial treatment, after I ran out of my green collection (review here). As usual, I went right to the Nivea department and I saw these 4 blue products.

Printable: Packing list

New year, new opportunities for traveling (forever wishing I could actually travel somewhere). I know most of the traveling is done during summer, but I don't know when you'll get the chance to hop on a bus/train/plane and go somewhere to enjoy life, so I'm giving this to you now.
Packing struggle is real and there's usually that one thing you forget to take. I divided this into 7 categories. Of course, this all depends on where you're traveling to, but this list should have everything you would need on a trip.
Note: Unfortunately, I don't know how to put a document here, so here's a picture. If you have any problems with downloading this or printing it, please let me know so I could fix it.

It's my day!

Hello you all! It's my birthday!! Yaay!

I wanted to do Q&A but, unfortunately, I don't have enough questions to dedicate whole post to it, so you'll find mini Q&A in the end. I'll just update you on life and this blog.

Life
I'm 22 now. I feel old and lost as most people my age do. I'm trying to finish college, I'm trying to finish some extra courses, I'm trying to get a job. I'm trying to stay on top with my workout routine. I'm trying to improve myself. That's about all I have to say. Sad? Maybe. Truth? For sure.
Life & blog
So... Life has caught up with me so I can't write and post this whenever I want, so I started scheduling posts (I actually started this, now, last year, in October I think), but this will be my thing now. Also, I'm a bit broke so I'm trying new ways of getting new stuff so I could try them and review them. I promise this will never be a problem for my blog since you know I buy affordable and cheap stuff 99% of the time. Since I started this blog, this has always been my hobby, my fun. Now I started taking this more seriously and I'm thinking about stepping up my game here, but I'm not making any predictions and promises. You'll see if something changes.
Blog
Posts will be up every Monday at 9 a.m. CET (Central European Time). As you were able to see, I added one more category (life) which I hope will be a success. There are also some tags on the left where you can find more specific posts according to brands. I'm still not working with any brand so everything you see here is bought with my money (or given to me as a present which is not that likely) and all thoughts are my own.

Please do comment and rate my posts, that would mean a lot. You can do it without any accounts or leaving e-mail addresses or anything like that.

Thank you Haley Jade Ryan :) Follow this beautiful girl!
  1. To be able to stop time, to somehow save all my loved ones from any pain, trouble, sickness, etc. and to get more courage to do some stuff.
  2. I wanted to be a lot of stuff of course. I wanted to do something with papers for sure. A teacher and a doctor were high on my list. As I grew older I wanted to be a manager of something and then I wanted to be a civil pilot in military which, I found out later, is impossible haha.
  3. Uff... I'm a rainbow! I'm calm as green, I'm stubborn as red, happy as yellow, peaceful as blue, shy and closed as black, but also friendly and ready to help like white. (If you're wondering my choice of colors: green is scientifically proven to be calming people; red is like fire, stubborn, feisty; yellow is always associated as happy color, it's the sun and it's full of life; blue reminds me of sky and oceans and also I remembered UNICEF sign is blue; black is mysterious and with secrets; white flag is sign of peace and friendship, also support.)
Thank you all for coming here and reading. I really appreciate it. Come back and enjoy :*

5 ways to survive morning

Most of people (if not all) struggle every day to get up out of bed. This is caused by 2 things - either we're really tired or we just know what the day is going to be like and we don't want to experience it. Either way, we all get up eventually and move on with our lives. Here are my tricks to get up with less pain.

New Year - new me | 2017 plans

Now you see that I added one more category on my blog (life tag, life tab). So, to introduce this category, I decided to write down my plans for 2017 mostly regarding this blog, Twitter (as it's the only social network connected to my blog), Instagram, pictures, equipment and all that fun stuff.
Note: In these categories where you see "???" I basically want your opinion and advice. Tell me how you do it or what would you do in my position. Also recommend cameras, props,... You'll see.

New Year | 2017


Happy New Year people!

Hope you had a great night.
And I hope you'll have the best year ever!
