The Face Behind the Blog Tag

You've all been waiting for this. I'm doing something totally unpredictable. A tag post. I know, I know, you're shocked right now. Staring at the screen, mouth opened, adjusting your (imaginary) glasses and reading this title again. Is it possible you're about to read a post about me? Yes, people, it's true. I'm going to introduce myself a bit more through 5 simple questions.


Hailey knows me well so I need to thank her for this tag. If you don't know who she is, I highly suggest visiting her blog The Undateable Girl's Diary which I regularly read because she has great topics and I really like her writing style, simple and interesting... Anyways, let's jump into this one.

Would You Rather…? (fashion edition)

 ** On a personal note this week: My honest opinion on my job (after 2 years)

OK, what is a better way to come back than with a good old fashioned Q&A? I love them cause they're fun to read and easy to write. I also love to talk about myself (not in real life though...). Anyhow, I saw this post over at Hailey's blog (The Undateable Girl's Diary) and she took it from 3YellowDaisies so read their posts too (after you read mine, of course). As Hailey said, the only rules are that you have to actually make a decision, and “I don’t know” is not an acceptable answer.


There are only 10 questions, but I hope you'll like my answers and, hopefully, you'll think about these and answer them yourself. Let's start.

eBay finds that are actually awesome (part 1)

** On a personal note this week: 3 songs that remind me of different people

Be honest, how much money do you spend Internet shopping in a month? It's all fun and games when you see few dollars here, few dollars there. However, then you look at the total in your cart and somehow you've spend $100 in a day. And there are few sites good for this: AliExpress, Amazon and, of course, my beloved eBay.

I found out about eBay around 10 years ago and I've been loving it ever since. Maybe it's stupid, but I kinda feel obligated to stay loyal to it and not go on other similar sites. Anyhow, I usually buy random bits from it and I have to admit, the quality and reality of the products have sometimes been questionable. To be fair, I always set the price point quite low, only few dollars... However, among all these weird stuff, there are some gems. Let's take a look.

Lumiliu bags

** On a personal note this week: Quarantine workout routine (for totally unfit people)

Instagram ads. Facebook ads. Youtube ads. Funny concept, those ads. They come in just when you need them, right? I mean, it's no secret that they work like that, that they listen to us and customize everything around our searches. However, it's hard to save money when they know you so well and your weak spots.

My weak spot is definitely fashion. I mean, I have a weak spot for all of it, but showing me a good bag is basically one step from me buying it. However, I've been eyeing this one brand for quite some time now as they seemed too expensive for me. Then Christmas came around and the discounts hit us from all around. So did this brand.

5 trends for guys I hate

** On a personal note this week: Quarantine workout routine (for totally unfit people)

I take some trends very personally. I'm usually the type to stick to basics and I don't fall for many trends because I know they're just a waste of money and, more often, they're something that really doesn't suit me or my style. However, they're here and here I am as well to comment. And just so you know, I regretted putting only 5 of these on the list...

As I did one of these for girls (find it here), I had to do one for guys too. There are some things I really dislike and find really unattractive. So here I go.
Note: Again, you're not suppose to feel bad because of this post. That's just what I don't like. So do your thing and enjoy it... Also, even if I'll say that that's not for guys, that of course doesn't mean that you can't wear/carry/do it. It's just that I don't like it like that.

How to maintain a perfect manicure

I've been thinking about this one for a while now. I need to push my love for nails a bit more on this blog. I want to share my love with someone and I think this is one way to find my manicure soul mate. If you're the one, let me know...

I've written about manicures quite a lot over the past years of blogging and I know for a fact that my tips helped some of you. So I tend to keep that reputation and make more posts that could help you maintain the best possible manicure without losing a lot of money. Let's start.

How to really declutter your closet

In the past few days I've seen about 30 declutter videos. Surprisigly, I started with my own closet for two reasons. First is that I absolutely love organizing stuff and second was that I was simply bored being closed inside my 4 walls for 2 weeks (so far). So, once I was done with my closet, I fell into this YouTube vortex of declutter videos. I like them all, but organizing clothes is my biggest love.

While I was watching all of it, I realized some things all girls had in common and some mistakes they made (in my opinion). If you're stuck at home like I am, this is a post for you.

Silk on hair serum by Olival

I will forever think that a freshly washed hair and nice hairstyle will beat a good make-up day any time. As eyebrows do too, hair is framing your face. It's a sign of how much time you had and what you have been through during the day. For example, I had a nice hair day when I was going out, but rain just started pouring, wind was blowing so hard that I came to work looking like I was dragged through the field of burdock.

And just when I thought I was actually doing good with my hair… I've been exploring with some new shampoos that are made for my type of hair, I've cut the dead ends (something I should do more often, I know) and I've been styling it so it's not getting too dry or damaged. I'll write more on this in some future post, but today I have a new product to show you.

What I actually got in an Essence advent calendar

OK, look, I know it's been two months since Christmas and I'm kinda late with this, but would you believe me if I told you I just now got the time to go through it? I honestly haven't touched any of these stuff since I opened them.

The other advent calendar I had was for a giveaway so I took care of it sooner, but this one I wasn't in a rush to deal with. If the recipients of the giveaway are reading this, I would love it if they send me a feedback or a photo or something.  Anyways, let's get into my advent calendar by, probably, my favorite brand out there.

My weight loss - is it possible?

** On a personal note this week: Coronavirus and how we should be handling it

I'm still on these "new year, new me" stuff. Until when? I don't know. But, maybe it'll help me actually accomplish some of my 2020 goals. If you read that post, you saw that there's fitness item on the list. As it is every single year. And it's been on the list for so long now that I really need to make some changes in my life. Otherwise, I'll never be fully happy.

I was writing a full body image journey on my personal blog (8 parts), so definitely read that to see what was I struggling with most of my life. C'mon, raise your hand if you struggle with body image and fitness, diets, etc. Most young people do, because of their twisted image of a perfect body. I'm guilty of it too and now I'm far too deep into it that I can't accept myself 100%. So I decided to change that and try the new thing that should help me both physically and mentally. Let's see what it's all about.

5 trends for girls I hate

** On a personal note this week: Coronavirus and how we should be handling it

How about using strong words like "hate" in the title, huh? I'm gonna talk about some well known trends that have girls go crazy which I definitely don't like. Don't be fooled, there are some more, but I'll talk about them if you show any interest in this topic. Haha. Also, guy's trends are also coming.

Note: I have a feeling I have to say that it doesn't really matter what I think and you certainly shouldn't feel bad if I say I don't like something you like. Do your thing, but I'll just state my opinions. Hopefully I'll find someone who thinks alike. The rest of you, stay tuned for the next post...

What's in my bag? | every day basis

** On a personal note this week: 3 things people hate and we need in life

Guys, I can't be buying more bags. I showed you my entire collection in the post My bag collection and since then I got rid of some, true, but I also got more. And I'm still planning on getting my self a Batman handbag so check it out and please tell me in the comments whether I should get it or not.

I also need to buy more big bags because I'm going smaller and smaller by each purchase. But that's OK cause I really like cute little/medium bags. Anyways, if you're nosy like me, you can check other posts like this under the label What's in my bag?. And now we move on...

Be smart about your beauty shopping

** On a personal note this week: I want a boob job

New year, new me. Says me who decided to plan my finances and stop spending too much money and just bought a dress I don't need. But I definitely love it. So that makes it OK, right? However, I did manage to cut down my expenses and if you want to know more how to save money, let me know.

Also, I need to get it of my chest and say that this was totally inspired by a video by Patricia Bright (video linked here). Definitely go watch it because I loved it and I think you all need to hear it too. Haha. And now let's get into this, shall we?

Personal 2020. goals

** On a personal note this week: TV shows I'm currently watching

Right. Of course I have to write a list of these things. God, how I love making lists. Are you with me? I have to say I already wrote mine and I didn't think I would share it this year. However, then I remembered some other things I could add, not specifically for me, and maybe help some of you out.

This is for all people struggling with New Year's goals whether they're being unrealistic or maybe you just don't know what else add to the list. I'm here to solve your problems.

Garnier sheet masks

** On a personal note this week: My body image journey - holding it in (part 2)

I'm so glad sheet masks made their way into our beauty routines. While I think other, conventional, masks are more practical as you can probably do something while waiting for it to dry, these are usually great for quick fixes when you've been neglecting your face for way too long and now you need to save it.
It took me few months to actually collect them all cause they're usually sold out here, but I finally did it. Some (my mom) may think I'm crazy, but blogging life isn't that easy. I had to buy them all, test them all and write my thoughts down.
