Dreamy destinations I.

Travelling is one of my favourite things to do! Who would not love it, right? That feeling of being in a foreign country and exploring its secrets and beauty - priceless! It fulfills your soul with a feeling of joy and desire to start running at once in all directions to make sure you see everything. You want to see every place and take picture of everything. 
Today I want to show you what destinations I would love to visit one day. So let's just hope it will happen! :)


Who would love to live here? Such a peaceful place, perfect for relaxing and gaining new strength for life.

My picks for spring & summer: Lipglosses

There is one thing I hate about wearing lipglosses. It is very windy where I live so you can imagine how all my hair stick to my lips! Aaaargh… But in spring and summer it is the perfect time to wear them since the wind behaves much better. I do not stick with one colour range. I like to change them and have variety of colours available. I pick colour by my mood or occasion I am going to wear it to. 

So here they are.. My spring & summer players!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Kiss Me Coral (here) has a very nice corally red colour with tiny little cold tone shimmers. It is a perfect option for me because I do not wear true red a lot. On the lips it doesn’t look too intense, it is not very opaque. I think for summer it is better to have that light colour on your lips, it looks more natural.

One brand review: Bourjois

Bourjois is a brand somewhere between drugstore and luxurious brand like Chanel, Dior, YSL. I feel that with Bourjois I get much better quality than with drugstore products and price is still affordable. Another plus is that Bourjois is available in Europe and I can get my hands on it! I would compare it to Physicians Formula which is not available here. You can buy it in drugstore but it is a bit more expensive. But I must say that after trying few of their products in US, I still prefer Bourjois. So no sad feelings about its unavailability here. 
Today I am introducing the best products from Bourjois I have tried yet and LOVE! I have already written about foundation and concealer, so in case you want deeper review check them out.

Makeup Storage tips

We all need help with storing and organizing our makeup products, right? Who doesn’t. So there is never enough makeup storage posts or videos. I store all my makeup products in my small Alex drawer from Ikea. I have it for almost 5 years and still like it. Some of my small products like concealers or lipglosses are stored in random acrylic drawer on my desk. I bought it from Amazon for about $12. Today, I offer you my way of makeup storage and organization :)

I guess I start with my lipsticks. As you can see at the picture I bought a lipstick holder. Actually, I bought two of them, why not. After filling it with my lipsticks I found out there is not enough compartments. So I was forced to find better solution. What is better than empty candle jar? It fits all of my lipsticks. They stand there perfectly and I can see all shades better than having them in a drawer.

One brand review: La Roche-Posay

Since my skincare posts have the most pageviews I decided to bring you another one. I have tried a lot of skincare products, of course not as many as longtime bloggers, but enough for regular person, I guess. For a couple of years, I have been loyal to La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo and since I like it so much I’ve started to try more of their products. And no regrets, they are all helping me and I have no complaints. For its review click here or buy here and I will add information about other products in this post.

Try & Share: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation review

I know this is not a new foundation and there is a lot of reviews out there, but I had need to write it anyway. Someone might not know about this foundation or will appreciate my view on it. I love Bourjois Healthy Mix range. Starting with Healthy Mix correcting concealer (review here) that I really like using for my undereye dark circles and Healthy Balance Unifying powder that I have just repurchased a few days ago and am waiting for its delivery.

Try & Share: Batiste Dry Shampoo and Haircare routine

First hair care post! 

I wish I would care about my hair a bit more. It is just so time consuming and my hair never cooperates with me. I have mid-long hair and wash them every other day. I wish I could go without washing them so often, but it looks impossible. From time to time when I know I stay at home the other day I don’t wash them. I try to leave them without washing that one day more. Every time I wash them I shampoo (currently Redken Clear Moisture) them twice. Then I use hydrating mask (currently Gliss Kur Total repair treatment) because my scalp gets dry especially in winter. I leave my hair drying in a towel for about half an hour. Once I take off the towel I brush them while damp. I am not able to brush them once they are dry. After that I use an oil (nothing specific, any oil I find in drugstore does its job) on my ends. I really like using the oil because my ends are never dry. Sometimes I use my new product Tony&Guy Sea salt texturizing spray to make them look messy because they are still so straight and sleek. That should be all :)

My Eyebrow routine

Not all of us are lucky enough to have perfect brows without doing anything. I am not even lucky enough to have perfect brows after doing something with them. I wish my brows looked like Rihanna's. She has an amazing face with everything fitting perfectly. Love her!

Empties I.

Finally! I have finally used up some products and remembered to not throw them away. I like watching or reading about empties because you get to know about many products and how they work for others. 
So let me introduce you to my empties. Some of them are great but there are also those that I hated and stopped using. 

Let’s started!

Try & Share: ZOEVA Metallic stones palette swatches

Another ZOEVA product I own. Except this palette and my brush set I have already reviewed (link here), I have one more product. It is a mineral eyeshadow in pearly pink colour with shimmer. But since I do not use it because I have no ocassion for such a unique colour and finish, I am not about to review it anytime soon. You can check this palette on their website here.

This palette has so many special colours that make your eyes looking luxurious! I will add swatches right now so you can imagine many perfect eye looks for special or daily occasions.

I can not describe my love for Sleek MakeUp products! Every time they launch new palette or any product I am tempted to buy it. And usually I do. And I never regret it. It is never wrong to have good products for affordable prices, right? Right?!

My Morning & Evening skincare routine

I have already written one post about my top favourite skincare products that I like using. But I am not using all of them right now because some of them are just not available in my country. Bummer. So I was forced to find different products that I like and use everyday. After trying them for a couple weeks I can say I like them.

Let me introduce you my skincare routine :)

Morning skincare

In the morning, the first thing I do is clean my face. I do not use any cleansing balm, I just use my Lancome Tonique Confort for dry skin (here) or Garnier micellar water (I don’t see difference between this one and Bioderma one) on a cotton pad to clean off any dirt from my face that got there through the night.
