Get ready for Blogmas!

** On a personal note this week: Today: 25.11.2018.

Hello! I haven't written an info post in a while so you're welcome. Haha. This one, however, is here to announce the most wonderful time of the year - Blogmas, if you're a blogger... I did one last year and I really liked it. You can read all of the posts under the label "Blogmas" on the left.

I'm also going to do the same thing this year which basically means 3 posts a week, winter themed posts and a lot of glitter. I already have some posts planned out and I'm going to try to do something different for this month. I'll try to keep everything season themes, not specifically Christmas, but winter or December in general, but we'll see where this will go. Also, I'm going to try and switch between all of my categories so you'll get a bit of fashion, make-up, DIYs, nails, etc.

I really hope this goes well, but my life is a bit hectic every December and I'm working and also doing a lot of side jobs so I don't have as much time as I would like to, but fingers crossed this Blogmas will be awesome.

For the end, I'll just remind you of my new schedule:
  • Monday 11 a.m. CET
  • Wednesday 7 p.m. CET
  • Saturday 6 a.m. CET
Also, if you have any ideas related to winter or Christmas time, please let me know (cause I could really use some!).

Will you join me this Blogmas?

Essence glitter peel-off mask

** On a personal note this week: Today: 25.11.2018.

Once a week, usually Sunday, I take some time to do my beauty routine. That means everything - shower, washing hair, doing nails and, of course, full skincare routine. I'm writing this on Sunday. I just left my shower, I got all my oils on and now I'm ready to write another review.

If you read my last post about skincare, My 4 black peel off masks, you probably noticed that I have that I haven't still used and written about. Today was the day that this glitter went on my face. And if you know me, you should know I love a smooth face and I especially love glitter.

Black Friday must-buys!

** On a personal note this week: Why I wear black 99% of the time

I would love to have all the money for my needs. And when I say 'needs' I mean random stuff I don't really need, but I still want in my possession. These things usually include clothing cause I fit into all styles so I "need" lots of clothes. I also have passion for shoes and bags. Yes, I have a problem.
Anyhow, there are other stuff I would like to have, like new TV and laptop because mine is dying, electric toothbrush because I have so many problems with my teeth and I hope those would help... However, if this was a list of the things I want (I could have just written 'a wishlist'), this post would be just a bit too long. So I chose 10 things I think everybody should have and now is the time to get them on discount.

Fall shoe collection

** On a personal note this week: Why I wear black 99% of the time

Fall is here! I know it's been here for a month and a half now, but the time has flown by so I'm just now going into this whole fall mood. With each year coming to an end I have this speech how years go by so freaking fast and I hate it. However, exciting posts are coming in the next two months. Starting with fashion, of course!
I already wrote a post Things I spend most money on and shoes are a big part of my spendings. As I know I like to change shoes a lot, I buy cheaper ones, but they have to serve the purpose, be comfortable and pretty. So, here's my collection of fall shoes...

My 4 black peel off masks

** On a personal note this week: Should kids earn their money?

I have this feeling that my topics are out of date. Like, are peel-off masks still a thing? I'm sure people are still using them, but they're not as popular anymore. Or am I wrong? Regardless, I go down this rabbit hole and I overthink should I post this or not? But here we are.
Recently, which means a year ago, I wrote a post Black peel-off mask: Iroha vs. Balea where I tested both just to see whether price is a key factor or not. If you're interested, just read it. However, today I'm presenting you my 4 black peel-off masks. Surprisingly, there's no expensive one (again, you can read about it in the previously linked post).

Hydra Moisture Boosting Serum by Oriflame

** On a personal note this week: Should kids earn their money?

Welcome to the world of oily skin which was dried up. Yes, I'm the founder of this little community. This, however, is not a bad thing. I used to have extremely oily skin, especially T zone and it took me some time to realize what I need to do. Thankfully I found all the right products.

However, before I realized what my routine needs to be, I dried my skin with every existing mattifying product. Now I have it all in control, still using mattifying products, but I now know the importance of hydrating my skin.

Organizing jewelry (part 2)

** On a personal note this week: I'm more than my social media.

I'm pretty sure I have jewelry for like 20 girls. Good piece of jewelry can make every outfit better, it can make you look like a rocker girl, princess or business woman in seconds. Also, eBay is usually my best friend when it comes to buying jewelry. I like big statement jewelry, but also small dainty pieces.
As with everything else, I have very little space for all of it so I constantly have to find different ways to keep everything organized. I personally lose the will to look for anything or wear some pieces of jewelry if I can't find them immediately. I need to keep it neat and accessible. I already made one post about this, Organizing jewelry (when you have tons of it), but things have changed a bit. Necklaces and bracelets are still in that order, but earrings and rings have changed their homes.

5 must-have lipsticks for fall season!

** On a personal note this week: I'm more than my social media.

Why is writing these intros to posts the hardest thing ever? Here I was, sitting in my room, looking around and noticed I haven't rearranged anything in quite a while so I decided to get my hands on the first thing next to me. And those were lipsticks. They're just standing here on my shelf and I noticed that I didn't like the order they were in, there were no categories.

I also realized that I gravitate towards some more than others. Especially with the season change. I usually do stuff without thinking about it being good for this blog. But this time I was smarter and took the opportunity of writing this post along with organizing my lipsticks. If you want to see the full collection, read My lipstick collection post.

Animal testing brands

** On a personal note this week: Why not having Netflix is a good thing

This issue has been around for quite a while now. We all love animals and we also see horrible stuff that are happening to them for our beauty products. I know some big YouTubers and bloggers have put a stop to buying makeup that has been tested on animals. However, makeup industry is growing by the day and I'm actually not sure anything is changing regarding this issue.
It also sucks that some brands test on animals just because they sell their products in the countries that require those. I mean, if you're able to make a product without testing it on animals, why do they require such tests? The rest of the world is still alive and well even after using them... Anyhow...
