New in | summer-fall 2018 (part 1)

** On a personal note this week: The Fall Tag by Hailey

I still feel like I've been MIA even though I've been active here for 3 weeks now. I still feel like I'm starting fresh. I also have tons of ideas for this blog, but not enough time do actually do them all. That's why today you're going to see what I recently got. When I say recently, I mean in the past few months of me not blogging.
I also went for small shopping trips so I didn't do a haul type of post. Another thing that has happened here is I got some stuff at the beginning of summer and some just yesterday. So, that's why there are different photos and set-ups. OK, let me just show you what I got myself...

Argan oil night repair serum

** On a personal note this week: The Fall Tag by Hailey

The winter is coming! That's a Games of Throne reference, right? I haven't watched a single episode, but I think I got that right. How is it already fall? Mother Nature obviously hates us and the year passes by so quickly. Of course, with the colder weather, my beauty routine changes. If you can even call it a routine. 
Fortunately, I don't have much skin problems throughout the year. The most problems cold causes is to my fingers and I have a perfect solution explained and showed in one of my old posts Nivea's SOS hand balm. Of course, even if it's not necessary, I do take care of my skin a bit more during winter, as opposed to just throwing on sunscreen in the summer.

L'Oreal Smooth sugars nourish scrub (chocolate)

** On a personal note this week:Two of my colleagues may be dating

I already wrote an 'Essentials' post Essentials: Skincare and I mentioned how scrubs are essential products for my skincare. I found them to work well on my skin and I love using them. Most of them can replace few skincare steps so I love a product that also saves my time.

I also mentioned how I especially love chocolate during fall in my post Fall favorites | 2018 so it's no surprise I chose to write about this scrub now. Too bad you can't actually eat it. You can read about two more of these in the posts L'Oreal Smooth sugars clear scrub (kiwi) and L'Oreal Smooth sugars glow scrub (grapes) or you can read about all L'Oreal masks and other products under the label 'L'Oreal Paris'.

Removing nail polish with clips

** On a personal note this week: Two of my colleagues may be dating

I've been kinda sad lately that I don't have enough time to actually do a proper manicure with drawings, stamping, gluing something or something like that. I've been doing pretty simple manicures which I really like, but I sometimes miss the creativity strike...
Also, if you know me, you know I love glitter. I need it everywhere. Doing simple, one color, manicures leaves some room for some bling and it usually ends up with a glitter top coat on at least one finger. However, removing nail polish is my worst nightmare and I offer money to somebody to take it off for me. Maybe, just maybe, I found a way to stop hating the process as much as I do now.
Note: You can find my entire manicure routine, keeping my nail polish intact for 2 weeks and more here - My nails and manicures routine.

How to get ready in 5 minutes or less

How stressful it is when you've overslept and you have a meeting in 10 minutes? Or if you made plans with friends which you forgot and now you have to look great in only 5 minutes? A while back I wrote a post 5 ways to survive morning, but there's nothing helping you if you don't have a minute left to put your self together.
I personally think I have quite different morning routine than other people on the Internet. I get up usually half an hour earlier than I need to leave, I don't eat breakfast or drink coffee. I just do the essentials and I'm good to go. Of course, you'll know best what to do for yourself. However, these tips work for anyone and every routine.

I'm back!

Haave you missed me? I hope you did. Haha. But I'm back now! And I'm here to stay! Hopefully. Without much rambling, I'll tell you what has been happening lately, why I haven't been active here or on social media in general, why I haven't read any of your posts (sorry!) and some other stuff.
It's been 2 months since I even opened blogger. I honestly thought I would just take a two week break to deal with my stuff and then come back, but it turned out that my assignment took a lot more time than I calculated. So, what's the big thing that occupied me? College. Or uni. Whatever you call it. I had to write my final paper and take care of tons of stuff and that was still my number one priority. To be honest, I had some time to write one post a week, but I was so stressed out all the time, I couldn't be bothered with this platform. However, I missed it almost every day.
So I can now proudly say that I finished my paper, I finished college too!! And, even though I'm starting to work today, I'm much more relaxed and happier so life is pretty good right now. I also made a pact with Anja from Gaia_s blog that we would both start blogging again in October. Her schedule has been hectic too, so we think it'll be easier to do it together, pushing each other towards the goal. Thank God for friends!
My plan now is to start posting regularly again (Monday 9 a.m. CET, Thursday 6 p.m. CET). This blog will remain all beauty, make-up, fashion, interior decor, recipes here and there and other stuff. Basically, I'll just continue where I left off. However, if you like more personal stories, there's my other blog Beehive where I'll post every Sunday noon CET. I'll include those stories here too, so you don't have to keep track of both blogs.

If you have any questions, suggestions or requests, please leave them below in a comment section, contact me via email honey.royal.lifestyle@gmail.com or on Twitter.

Thank you!!

L'Oreal pure clay anti-blemish mask (the blue one)

** On a personal note this week: My body image journey - body shaming (part 1)

Are masks even a thing now? I have a feeling they had a big popularity boost a while back and then sheet masks came in and the original masks fell into the shadow. I could be wrong. But at the time they were really popular, I bought them all and now I have few of them to review.
Although there are a lot of these masks out there, L'Oreal's are the ones everybody went nuts for. Naturally, so did I. I already reviewed some of them: Review: L'Oreal Pure clay exfo mask (the red one) and Review: L'Oreal Pure clay purify mask (green one). I've also collected some of the scrubs by L'Oreal and you can read some reviews too: L'Oreal Smooth sugars clear scrub (kiwi) and L'Oreal Smooth sugars glow scrub (grapes). Now on to the newest in my collection...

02 July 2018

My skincare routine (morning + night)

** On a personal note this week: My body image journey - body shaming (part 1)

Every time I think of skincare, I just think of my grandma and my mom. To give you some background, my grandma grew up very poor. In the years of her youth, she barely had money for food so she really couldn't afford skin care products. Since I can remember, she always used the same 2 creams - Becutan and Nivea. There was no toners, cleansers, oils... And her skin is to this day (she's 79) is absolutely gorgeous.


Then I open my YouTube, I see all these beauty gurus with their routines and fancy products and then I look at myself and think if I'm doing something terribly wrong to my skin. I also wonder if they really have the time to do all that every day, because I don't. Or, at least, I don't want to lose precious time doing 20 extra steps. Not that I don't trust my grandma, but things have changed over the time so I'm trying to pick up as many useful advice as I can.

Sugar spun nails

How long has it been since I posted a manicure? Seems like ages since my last 'Nails' post was about terrible experience with a peel-off base (post Barry M peel-off nail polish base). I also don't exactly know how late am I with this manicure cause I've seen it few months back. I decided to try it out anyway and see is it really as easy as they show it.
This trend is called sugar spun for whatever reason and I was really excited about it. It seemed quick and easy. It also didn't require any experience with manicures, drawings or any other form of creativity. You just need to pick out two or more colors you like together and that's it.

Body hair & shaving

If you are a girl, I really hope you don't fall into my category with this topic. Since I can remember, I always had quite strong hair, thick, dense and dark brown. And, unfortunately, this didn't stop only on my head. I have the same hair all over my body. Now I know there's a hormonal disorder with extreme hair growth and I don't have that, but I have a pretty bad situation over here.
I have extremely hairy legs, mostly hairy arms, hairs on my belly and a beard. Mustache too, of course. I think some guys would be jealous of my hair growth. If you are not bothered by body hairs, this isn't post for you. However, if you struggle like I do, here are some of my products, tips and routines.

11 June 2018

Barry M peel-off nail polish base

Do I even have to point out by now that I love manicures? I don't think so. I always have my nails painted (post My nails and manicures (routine). They only get to be naked for about 4 weeks a year. If. And as much as I don't mind spending 4 hours doing my manicure and waiting for all of it to be dry, there's a part I can't stand. It's, of course, taking off my last manicure.
There's nothing I hate more regarding nails. I will shape them (post Transition from squoval to coffin nails) , apply all necessary nail care and paint them for how long it takes, but taking off nail polish is a nightmare. I do have my own trick, it's still just a waste of time for me. However (!), peel-off bases are a huge thing right now so I decided to give it a go. I got this Barry M one and tested it. I also had to make a video proof...

A real no-makeup makeup routine | My daily "make-up"

I think I've said it a 100 times by now that I don't use make-up on daily basis. I think I have too much make-up for someone who puts it on maybe once a month. And I'm not even talking about "everyday make-up". I'm talking about not having make-up at all! I went through my teen years without make-up so I think I got really used to my bare face. I also had the worst days (puberty) without make-up so I'm not that self-conscious without it now.  
Photo shows my favorite products and the ones I use the most in this situation. For more details either find reviews on my blog or ask in the comment section.
I'm most proud of it now. However, I do like to glam up for special occasions which are sometimes just random outings with my friends. I'm basically doing it all - from bare face to using just few products to going full glam. And this can all happen within 2 days.

Small closet organization

Is it just me or every blogger/youtuber that has anything to do with fashion has a room just for their clothes? Or they at least have huge closets. And, of course, everything is minimalistic and there's room for everything even though they have tons (!) of clothes.
However, I'm showing you the real thing. I have a small room, even smaller closet. Actually, it's a regular size closet, but seeing all the others, this seems tiny. And I also have quite a big amount of clothes. Let's see how this goes.

21 May 2018

I'm tuning out.

Hello guys.

Firstly I want to thank you all for being here, coming for the first time or revisiting which is even more awesome.
Not to make this a long post, I'll just give you a quick update on what's going on.

So, I won't be publishing any posts until June (which is in a week and a half, I know) which will make me miss 3 posts, but hopefully it'll give me enough time to do stuff and prepare my posts. As you may know I'm posting on my personal blog too (and you can find weekly posts linked in each post on this blog). Although I find it easier to post personal stuff cause I'm just writing stories that pop to my mind, it's still time consuming.

Also, I'm currently in the middle of a lot of stuff. Some being looking for a job, writing my final paper, attending meetings and other stuff related to both my college and job so I don't really have the time to write this. And I'm disappointed in myself cause I'm usually good with time management, but lately I've been stuck in this rut with all college/job issues that it's basically all I think about.

Anyways, give me a week and a half.

Thank you!!

Essence metal shock nail powders (+ video)

Metal nails or nail foils were a huge thing now (they still are as far as I know) among all nail artists and manicure lovers. Although there are hundreds of powders and base/top coat combinations, and they can be ordered pretty much everywhere, I got my eyes on the Essence collection. Among other products, they offered metal shock powder and top coat.
I got powder in the shade #03 i'm so fancy (purple), #01 mirror, mirror on the nail (silver) and #04 a touch of vintage (gold) and I also got these cute mini eyeshadow applicators as I've seen many tutorials using these.

Pore cleaner | device review

In how many posts do I need to share my need for clean pores? Someone please help me! I went to a beauty salon for a professional lady to do it for me. I paid quite a lot of money, I've lain there for about 40 minutes, I felt quite a lot of pain and then I was done.
I was left with clean pores. Every single bit out of all of my pores was taken out. I've never seen my face like that. Absolutely clean and irritated. I also received all facial treatments afterwards so I was just waiting for the redness to go away. Well it all took a different turn the next day.

A pop of yellow

OK, let's first talk about how one page I used a lot, Polyvore, was sold so some other company and now the whole community is left without any of their works. I had more than 300 looks put together there and they're all gone. Without any warning. Thank God I used those looks for posts here so I have some saved, but my most recent ones are my favorites and they're gone forever.
Well, spring is back! Now that we're a bit pissed off and sad, I'll show you some outfits I managed to put together before the site went down. I have some more of these planned, but now I have to be very careful how I post these...
Note: Unlike any other fashion post from Polyvore so far, you won't be able to find links and prices of the items. Because the site no longer exists, unfortunately.

Makeup Revolution chocolate rose gold eyeshadow palette

It's been a month since I posted my make-up review (and I also review a Makeup Revolution product Retro Luxe Gloss lip kit). But you know those days when you just don't want to wear make-up so you have no idea what's going on in beauty world? Well, that's 90% of the time for me. And then one day I feel like going full glam for no reason. And then I look for my most beautiful make-up products and I feel like a queen.
It's safe to say I've transitioned from a simple black smokey eyes from 10 years ago to fun make-up, experimenting with it and, lately mostly using reds and a lot of warm tones on my eyes.This is something I never thought I would do. But here I am. And here's my newest palette.

Organizing jewelry (when you have tons of it)

When you Google "organizing jewelry", you get all the perfectly lined necklaces, drawers full of boxes for each pair of earrings, those "trees", "wire dancers" that hold your jewelry and all different kinds of 'perfect storage'. However, we all know that it's not realistic to have a separate wall reserved just for jewelry. 
I, for instance, have very little space in my room so I have to pay attention to storing everything properly. I'm also a bit of a jewelry junkie so these two things don't go well together. Now, I found a perfect way to storage my jewelry.

23 April 2018

Spring shoe collection

If I had to choose my one weakness when it comes to shopping, I couldn't. You know I love it all. Lately, I've put a break on buying bags and I'm all into shoes. With spring being my favorite season of all, this is my time. I made sure I got some fun pieces I'll love.
Some shoes are new, some are old. I think it's totally not necessary to buy shoes (or bags or clothes) each year. I don't blindly follow trends so I think I'll love these in the future too and I'll get few seasons out of them for sure.

19 April 2018

L'Oreal Smooth sugars glow scrub (grapes)

I have a feeling I've been going on and on about how I hate my textured skin, how I don't want any shine on it, how I want clean pores... Don't we all? Well, during last year, I stepped up my skincare routine, my make-up routine and overall caring for myself. Yay for me!
With all these changes, I'm glad I have some new products that I can try out. You never know what will suit you. So, recently L'Oreal smooth sugars came into our stores and I'm here to test them all. I already wrote a review on L'Oreal Smooth sugars clear scrub (kiwi) and all other masks and products by L'Oreal Paris.

Nivea Urban skin moisturizer

How important is moisturizer on daily basis? And how much do we struggle to find a perfect care for our skin? I don't know about you, but finding a good everyday cream is much bigger struggle than a person would expect. There are age groups, skin types, longevity, SPF, finish, feel... There's a lot to consider while finding a perfect base for your skincare.
After not having a moisturizer for way too long and managing with all different skincare products, I finally decided to buy a new one. Also, after trying some out of my comfort zone, I'm back to safe zone. That being Nivea.

Essentials: Make-up

With all bloggers, brands and youtubers bombarding us with all the make-up "you need to have" is's easy to get lost into it. You're constantly persuaded that you need just one more eyeliner, just one more highlight and there's no make-up without a mascara. So I sat down today and went through my make-up collection.
I don't need make-up at all (as I put full make-up on maybe (!) two times a month), but if I wanted to do some look, I found some essentials. A while ago (more like a year ago), I wrote two more 'essentials' posts and I showed you what I think are fashion essentials (really proud of that post) and nails essentials so check that out too.

New info post + giveaway info/prizes

It's been a month since I wrote some info post, life and blog update, if you will. You can find all of those under my category "Info posts". I think it's OK to write these once a month or once every few months. Just to set some of my goals and to keep you updated on what's going on.
Another reason why I'm writing this one today is because I was super busy last week and I didn't have the time to prepare another post. But I also wanted to ask you guys something.

How to style boyfriend jeans?

Boyfriend jeans came and they're not going away. At first, I didn't like the trend, I didn't get it. I'm still not fully on board, but I got myself one glittery boyfriend jeans and I, of course, had to think of how to wear them.
https://www.polyvore.com/no_223/set?id=207635628
There are many styles, colors, cuts... I chose some random ones, but I really hope this will encourage you to wear something out of your comfort zone or just give you some ideas. These are all basically very casual, but more heels are going to be featured in upcoming posts.

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.

The sunshine blogger award | tag 3

I've said many times, I'll say it again - I love tag posts. I love polls, answering questions and this new trend of Instagram stories templates. When I was a kid every person had to have a notebook with questions that required short answers and we would give them to each other to answer questions and pass on to another friend. It was kinda a privilege to get someones notebook, so I was always happy to get one.
Source: https://notmyfatherskitchen.com/2016/07/27/sunshine-blogger-award/
I have a feeling I get nominated in all sorts of tag posts in nice intervals of time. I'm not boring you with these, but also get to write them quite often to satisfy my wishes. I wrote my last The sunshine blogger award | tag 2 in January (also, you can find all award posts here and all tag posts here).

Tasty tortilla/fajita/taco recipe!

If you didn't get it by now, I'm not much of a cook. I cook only if I have to and if something hits me in the head. However, there are some really easy meals I do like to make. I like to work with ingredients I know can be eaten raw so I can't really undercook it or not bake enough. I play it safe in the kitchen. Sue me.
But seriously, who can be bothered with long meal preparations? I know meal preps for a whole week in advance are really popular, but that's not how we do it. There are some food that can be eaten few days later and this is one of those. I make this and I have 2 days full of food. I showed  you two easy recipes by now and you can find them under the label "food" or "recipe" or category "life".

MakeUp Revolution Retro Luxe Gloss lip kit

How many times have you read "I'll keep it down with buying make-up" or "I have way too many lipsticks for a normal person" on my blog? But (!) I've also said many times that I can put on just lipstick without any other make-up product and feel like a queen. So I did it again. I bought another lip kit. 
As usual, I was browsing through local Internet store and I was searching for a lipstick that my mom wanted. As it's from MakeUp Revolution, I filtered it and I saw this kit on discount. Naturally, I don't pass out on good discounts, so here's a new review.

22 March 2018

Upcoming spring outfits (dresses + leather jacket)

I've said this many times, but I'll say it again: spring is my favorite season. I love the weather, clothes, nature... Everything. So I normally can't wait for spring to arrive. As we still have snow here (and it's supposed to be a lot warmer and sunnier), I just had to invite spring somehow.

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_252/set?id=218071857
Today I'm showing you these 6 outfits I put together for nice spring (or fall) days. I chose all dresses and leather jackets cause I've seen how this combination can turn out to be pretty great. I already have some other outfit posts in mind, but I'll start with this one.

Fashion & make-up & jewelry & skin care haul

Whenever I buy something new I plan on writing this post and I ask you on Twitter whether you'd like to see it and the answer is always "yes" and I've still never done it. So, I've finally done it! Over the past few two months I got some new stuff in all categories so I'm showing you all I got.
It will take me a while before I figure out how to get great pictures of clothes and I'm planning on doing a try-on post one day, but for now you'll get these. Also, my camera has a will on its own so there are different photos here, but you'll get it...

Rewind/kill time without "wasting" it!

How long has it been since I did a 'Lifestyle' post? Two months? Even more if I don't include New Year's resolutions and Blogmas. It was about time to change this. Since my college year started, I noticed how I have way less time and way more stress ahead of me. Although, I knew this was coming, you can never be fully prepared.
Now I'm going to share some ideas how to rewind, relax and have a time to yourself without actually wasting time. Of course, what's a waste to one man, it's a treasure to another.

Note: Some of these are my ways too, but I'll include some I see my family and friends using too.

Introducing new segment & changes to the blog

Hello! Let's take a break from my usual content to show you something new here. If you don't know already, I do these "Info posts" every now and then when I have something new to say, some new category to introduce or basically anything that doesn't fit my beauty world.
Today I have some news, one addition to this blog. I'm pretty excited for it, but I'll let you decide if that's something you'd like to see or not. Feedback is always appreciated. I'll also fill you in on my life lately a bit.

L'Oreal Smooth sugars clear scrub (kiwi)

I've already written few words about L'Oreal Paris masks that have basically taken over the beauty world. You can read my thoughts on the green mask here Review: L'Oreal pure clay purify mask (green one) and on red mask here Review: L'Oreal Pure clay exfo mask (the red one). With me being so satisfied with the red one, I had to try new 'sugars' collection. 
Like the red clay mask, these 'sugars' also have some micro-beads in them so they're all good for exfoliation. Or so I thought when I bought all 3 of them. Since I've been using clear scrub (or kiwi sugar, as I like to call it) the most, I'm here to write down my thoughts on it.

DIY photo frame + room decor

You should know I consider myself creative. Yeah, I'm modest like that. But I think I'm more creative when I need to be. I see potential in lots of stuff and I try to adjust them to suit my needs and wishes. That's why I started "DIY category" on my blog.
A while back (like, two years ago), I wrote a post DIY: Motivational picture where I showed you how to easily and quickly upgrade your old picture frame. This time, I bought some frame I liked, but it didn't suit my needs for display so I had to make some adjustments. I'll also share some of my ideas for decorating your room with pictures and photos in frames.
P.S. My camera decided to die on me while taking these photos, so they may be a bit blurry.

Winter night out

How long has it been since I last posted some outfit post? My 'fashion tab' says the last one was in December when I showed you 20 holiday outfits. So, it's been too long. It's currently winter here and, even though the strongest one should have been in December and January, February is so far the coldest month this winter.

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_170/set?id=187492184
Of course, cold weather and snow won't stop me from enjoying every moment of my free time. This includes going out for walks and going out meeting my friends for coffee and also going clubbing. Now, I've put together these 6 outfits I would wear on these days. Also have in mind that my everyday winter outfits are quite different from these cause it's freaking freezing outside. Also keep in mind, you're supposed to get rid of the jacket when you get somewhere and I assume all places have heating on.

What's in my bag? - final college edition

I don't know if you're familiar with the fact that I'm finishing college soon, but I am. I still have it until the September this year, but I have these few months only to write a final paper (or should a say - a freaking book). I have lots of feeling towards this, but that's a topic for another post.
So, now I present you my bag. My newest bag that I bought especially for college, but only for the last 3 months. I could have bought it sooner, but I was looking for a good one and now here I am. This is, hopefully, my final college edition bag. I already wrote some posts on this topic, so you can check them out under the label What's in my bag.

How to remove stubborn nail polish

How long has it been since I've done a nails related post? I love these so much it always feels like it's been at least 6 months (and it's been a month now...). While we're on the topic, I'm looking for more nail bloggers so if you are one or if you know one, let me know.
You know I love painting my nails all colors, stickers, rhinestones, glitter... You name it. If it's for nails, I probably have it and I've used it. However, the worst part of doing manicures on weekly basis (I have no idea how some people can paint their nails every day) is taking it all off. I may have found the perfect solution for this.

Life on the dance floor lipstick review

Few posts ago, I said I won't buy any more lipsticks. Cause I already have too many and, let's be real, I don't wear make-up that often. However I also said that just wearing a good lipstick can make me look put together and ready to concur the day. So here I am.
Since I like neutral make-up for most days, I'm always looking for some nude shades, something that will just pick me up and won't make me look unnatural. Have I found 'the one'?

12 February 2018

Veet beauty styler

Let's just get this out in the open - I'm a hairy girl. Nobody would probably say that cause I hate my hairs (other than my actual hair on my head) and I, more or less, take care of it. However, there are hairs I can't simply take off with waxing or shaving. I can, but I don't want to. And I finally decided to put some money into a hair trimmer.
 Winter has been good to me in terms of hairs. As usual, they're growing slower and thinner during winter so it makes me really happy. However, my hate for winter clothes (or love for short-sleeved tops) exposes my arm hair more than I would want to. Also, make-up doesn't go as smooth with this peach fuzz I have going on. Veet is wide known for their shaving kits, accessories and everything related to smooth, hairless skin. When I saw this trimmer on discount, I decided to give it a try.

Review: L'Oreal Pure clay exfo mask (the red one)

My skin is actually in a pretty good condition. However, even small feel of texture on my face annoys me and I would like it to be smooth and flawless (wouldn't we all?). I also have quite large pores on my nose and around it which are 99.99% of time clogged. Then it came a time when face masks made their breakthrough.
I also have oily skin so I chose the mattifying one. If you haven't already, you can read my thoughts on it in this post Review: L'Oreal Pure clay purify mask (the green one). Then I realized it's not strong enough for what I wanted so I got this red one too. I've had it for months now so I'm finally writing this.

Where have I been? Polls!

"January is finally over." That's the one thing I've been seeing all over my social media, but January for me flew by and I'm sad it's February already. It's the second month of this year and I'm still in the same place. OK, that's my fault, but I still don't like months passing by.
I don't know if you noticed, but I went missing for a week on this blog and for few weeks on Twitter (link on the right). I'm here, but I'm not. The reason for this is my college.

The sunshine blogger award | tag 2

I already did this tag just few months ago (in October to be exact), but I can't resist a tag post so I'm doing it again. You can read my previous post here The sunshine blogger award | tag.
Today I'm answering some questions a lovely Annie B. asked. Thank you Annie for tagging me! You can read her post and her answers in her post The Sunshine Blogger Award.
As much as I'd love to do Q&A posts every once in a while, I don't get that many questions, so I'll consider this as my personal Q&A. Cause it actually is. Let's start!

Personal 2018 goals + Q&A

With the start of the new year, I wrote a post New year - new me | 2018 plans where I addressed only my blog (any maybe YouTube) goals. I looked back on 2017 and made some new plans. However, I left out the personal goals. I wrote them down in short, but since you asked for it, I'll give you my full list of personal goals for 2018!
I also asked you to leave your questions so I'll do a mini Q&A in the end as well. I did this post last year too cause it's basically my birthday post so I want to do something different for this special event. Read my last year's post here It's my day.

Quick & easy nail care

I know I'm probably a bit crazy when it comes to nails (hence the whole category Nails on my blog), but I think they are the best accessory I have so I have to keep them in the best possible shape. Most people would just wash their hands, cut nails and maybe put on some hand cream. Not me.
I already wrote a whole post on My nails and manicures (routine) so I suggest you read that too. However, I haven't talked about actual nail and cuticle care. You can do this in so many ways and different products, but I'm here to show you the most simple routine I have for my nails and manicures looking great.

Hair routine & the best oil combination for perfect hair

Most people I know have been telling me I have pretty hair my whole life (and I thank them for that!). However, most people also didn't notice a huge change through my life regarding my hair as well as I have. Of course. I had really thick and dense hair until I started college. I believe it was increase in stress level that lead to me losing much more hair.
Thankfully, I still have a lot of it and it's quite healthy, but I know what it used to be years ago. Over the years I became really insecure about it and having dandruff for the past 15 years isn't helping. So I knew I had to start doing something to try to repair the damage. After years of different products, I found few that work for me.

The strongest eBay peel-off mask

This past 2017 has really been all about peel-off masks. There are so many of those, but black ones, with charcoal, have been the most talked about and used as far as I can recall. Also, do you remember all that DIY masks with glue? And every single add you've seen about these?
Well, there's been this one mask in particular that's supposed to be the best and strongest mask out there which will pull out all impurities and make your skin feel and look great. I've found it on eBay (which doesn't necessary mean it's the real thing, but it could be - I'm honestly not sure) cause I didn't have Amazon account to buy it there. I'm talking about Purifying peel-off mask by Shills.

NYX Slip Tease & Soft matte review

Since NYX came to my country, I've bought quite a few products there. With some other eye products, I'm a huge fan of some of their lipstick products which you can read in one of my previous posts. Today, I have two more I'd like to talk about.
For the past year, I really became a lipstick girl and I truly believe that wearing only a good lipstick can make you look put together in all occasions. I've already wrote a review on 4 different NYX lipstick lines which you can read about in the post My NYX lipstick collection.

New year - new me | 2018 plans

Last year was the first year I did these plans on my blog so you can read those in New year - new me | 2017 plans. I'll try to make this my series here, but you'll have to wait another year to see what actually happens with it.
Last year I focused only on my blog and everything revolving around it. This year I'll add some of my personal goals and wishes so you could get to know me better. But, of course, I'll have to see what has changed and what I accomplished last year.
