Miss Ramble #9 New Year Resolutions

Monday, December 31, 2012

Hello beauties:)

Long time no see....Actually not so long time, only about 1 week... This week was actually quite fun :) I spent a lot of time with my old friends, I had my time to be lazy and now I am totally relaxed. Yesterday it was "skin care day" ...I spent the day reading about this and than the #bbloggers chat followed with the same topic. I really enjoyed the chat especially because it was my first chat after few weeks of absence :)

Today was dedicated to new year resolutions!

Happy Christmas Eve :)

I hope everyone is having a joyful Christmas Eve :) Today is my second inspired NOTD. Why purple world? Just have a look at my blog.... Does it look like purple is my favorite color?

For yesterday NOTD I used Flormar nail polishes (and no topcoat), but for today I used Essence and a beautyUK top coat.


Late Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Beautyaholic Girlfriend: #2 from theBalm

Sunday, December 23, 2012

Hello lovelies::)

Two weeks ago I could bet that I bought all my Christmas present but now I realized that I forgot one and this made me think that I might not be the only one that needs late Christmas gift ideas so ....because I failed doing "Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Beautyaholic Girlfriend" series, I will transform it in "Late Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Beautyaholic Girlfriend" and post today and tomorrow ideas for the late ones. Today's post will be also a brand centered one and I supposed you guessed from the title that today's brand is theBalm. I only have to palettes from theBalm, but because of the Balm Jovi palette (review soon) I could test more than just their eyeshadows and I am totally in love. Here are my suggestions from this brand:

NOTD Red&Gold

Good morning ladies :)

Like I said in my ramble post I have 2 NOTD to show you and here it goes first one. On the time when I did this, I was experimenting with one DIY gel nails kit and my nails may look a little weird. This is a very simple design but I actually quite enjoyed it while it was :) I used to Flormar nail polishes. Again, I don't know if you have Flormar where you live, but lately I really enjoy their nail polishes.


Miss Ramble #8

Saturday, December 22, 2012

Good evening ladies :)

Here is a post explaining where have I been... Like I mentioned few times already, I am visiting my family for holidays and I'll be in Romania till 10th of January. Last week I couldn't wait to get here and I was making plans how much I will blog in this time, but guess what that didn't happen. I think you can understand that seeing my family after few months was a little more overwhelming than I was expecting and the plans that I made didn't match. Anyway, I am planning to post 2 NOTD in the upcoming days and maybe a FOTD...I'll see how things are going. I don't want to promise anything because in 2 days it's Christmas and it gets quite busy around here. Also, I will receive for Christmas a smartphone and this means that soon I'll be on Instagram :)

Oh and I just remembered that I wanted to make a series "Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Beautyaholic Girlfriend" but I managed to write only 1 post. Maybe I will manage to give some late ideas, which means that maybe I will post 2 times per day till Christmas...hmm lets see if that works...

This is pretty much what was going on with me and I can't wait Christmas :) What are your Christmas plans? Did you buy all your presents?

TAG: All I Want for Christmas

Hello ladies:)

Let me start by saying that I love Christmas, who doesn't? It is my favorite part of the year so it wouldn't be logic to let it go without doing a Christmas related tag . I saw few Christmas tags going around blogs and they all looked so much fun to do, but I chose this one. One on them is All I Want for Christmas and I saw it here. I really liked the questions so I decided to do it as well.

If you want to find out the questions of this tag and my answers, keep reading:)

Friday, December 14, 2012

I wanted share with you my two cents about Sigma Mrs. Bunny travel kit before Christmas because this would be a very nice gift for a beautyaholic.  


Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Beautyaholic Girlfriend #1 : from Sigma Beauty

Tuesday, December 11, 2012



Hey all:)



I was telling you in my last ramble post that I was thinking to start a series called "Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Beautyaholic Girlfriend". I decided to do a couple on posts based on brands and a couple based on budget. Today it is time for the first brand: Sigma Beauty. I love my two sets of Sigma brushes and there are still some products that I want to try out from them and I think a lot of beautyaholics would like to have the. Here are the gift ideas for today: 

Monthly Favorites: November

Sunday, December 9, 2012

Hello ladies:)

I know, I know ...it is almost middle of December and I haven't post my November favorites yet :( But I am ready to fix this and show you my November favorites. This month I don't have a random favorite because....I don't know why, I just don't have. Also, I want to let you know that I won't do a "In my makeup box: November" post, because things didn't really changed from October (I've been lazy, I admit), but I would totally do one for December and also a "What is in my travel makeup bag" because next weekend I'll be traveling to Romania (I don't know why I write this in every post but I am really excited to go to see my family and friends). Back to the favorites...here they are:


Miss Ramble #7

Saturday, December 8, 2012

Good evening ladies :)

I hope all of you have a great weekend :) As as I said so many times, my absence on the blog is because I have exams this period and all I do is study study and guess what? Study again :( Anyway, today I just couldn't focus anymore on studying and I started to prepare some photos for future post and also writing  some posts. I am thinking to start a small series called "Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Beautyaholic Girlfriend". Would you be interested in reading that ?

Changing the note a little bit, I am so happy that next weekend I will be going to Romania to visit my parents and friends. The best parts is that my boyfriend is going with me and we'll be there till 10th of January:) I can't wait to that! I don't know how much I will be able to blog while I am there (because I would like to spend as much time as I can with my friends and family), but I will make sure to prepare some posts for you before I leave.

Now lets talk a little bit about the giveaway I have going on... I was having a look over the entries few days ago and I noticed some weird things like blogs/accounts which were set up specially for giveaway. Really ? Why would you do that ? I still don't know what to do about that persons... There are 2-3 persons who did that and I am a little bit disappointed...Like I said in the giveaway post, I will check out all entries before choosing the winner so I guess I will decide then what I'll do :)

Guest Post- How to: Take Care of Your Skin in Winter

Monday, December 3, 2012

Good morning ladies :)

It's Monday and a new weak starts. Today I have another guest post done by the beautiful Aneta from Secrets of Wonderland . If you don't know her blog you should definitely go and have a look! Here it goes her post:

"Hi ladies, my name is Aneta and I am beauty/fashion/lifestyle blogger (I just love so many things that I have to write about them - and books and movies are another passion of mine). I am honored to write this guest post for Cristina :)

I think it´s safe to say that winter season has already started. The question is - is our skin prepared to it? I know that you probably don´t have the same skin type as me (I wouldn't want my worst enemy to have my skin type! And that´s saying a lot :D) but there are few beauty rules and tips that could apply to everyone. I have acne prone skin that is extremely oily, with visible pores - but the more temperature drops, the crazier is my skin! In addition to the problems I mentioned before I get really dry patches on my face, especially nose and cheeks. If this article is useful at least for some of you, I am more than glad.

Made from Earth Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment

Saturday, December 1, 2012

Hey all :)

It's been such a long time since I did a skin care item review, but here it goes... About 1 month ago I received the Made from Earth Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment to review. At the beginning I was wondering why in the world they would send something to heal the skin from sun expose when , oh well, in Finland it was the beginning of winter. I e-mail the company and asked about it and they replied  quickly telling me that this product is also an excellent moisturizing. Hearing this I decided to give it a try, considering that I start to have a lot of dry patches when it's cold outside.

I was curious to try products from Made from Earth as I try to go as natural as I can with my skin care.


Here it is the official description of the Pure Aloe Vera Skin Treatment from Made from Earh website:

"100% pure and organic aloe vera for cooling and deep moisturizing.

Miss Ramble #6

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Hello lovelies :)

First of all I am sorry for the lack of posts lately, but like I said in the last ramble post, hard time came for me and even harder is about to come. Homework, exams and huge assignments and all have a deadline which is approaching. Anyway, here is a quick update with what I've been up to...

Over the last weekend we've been visiting my boyfriend's family in Estonia, because it was his grandma's birthday. I was planning on writing a couple of posts while we were traveling by ship from Helsinki to Tallinn, but the weather suddenly changed and the ship started to shake and I started to feel sick and there my plans went...

Also, related with that trip... I was planning to buy Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation from the Duty Free from the ship, but I managed to get a sample of it on Thursday and applied on Friday and I totally hated it! I tried applying it 2 times...with a brush and with the Cosmopolitan Blend Perfection Sponge and hated it both ways. It is a shame because I really like the coverage and I found my perfect color match, but I really dislike how it looks and feels on my skin. I still have 2 or 3 uses from my sample so if you have any application tips please leave them in a comment (maybe I just did something wrong).

This weekend I need to film a video for a class at uni presenting my business idea. Can you guess

Guest Post: Winter Lip Saviours!

Monday, November 26, 2012

Hello ladies:)

Today I have a different post for you. As I said in a recent post, I will be pretty busy with school for next few weeks and I search guest bloggers. Today is my first guest post done my the lovely  Megan over British Beauty Geek. Enjoy!


"Winter can play havoc with the conditions of lips. I have dry lips at the best of times so during the cold months they go extremely dry. Recently I have discovered two products that actually manage to keep my lips baby soft and flake free.

Sigma Beauty Black Friday Offer

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Good evening ladies :)

Today is a different post :) I just want to let you know about Sigma's Black Friday offer.


Miss Ramble #5

Monday, November 19, 2012

Good afternoon ladies :)

So here it starts a new week...the last week when I can chill out till 15th of December. Starting with next week I will have a lot of school work to do :( and in December I will start to have exams. Oh God, how much I hate exams :( 

And now comes my favorite part....lets complain about the weather in Finland: how it comes that in 1 week I had only 1 hour with sunshine and that was when I was having classes?  I wanted to take so many pictures for future post, but guess what ? I ended up taking them in artificial light so not all of them turned out so great.... I hate when things are not going how I was having in mine, really ....

Changing the subject, what do your think about advertising spots on blogs? This was the topic of the last bbloggers chat and I would really like to know what my readers think about this. Personally, I don't think it is something bad as far as is not disturbing and it is related with the content of the blog. I saw last night during the chat that a lot of people are against advertizing and I respect that.

Last, but not least, who is interested to guest blog for me ? :) As hard time is coming at school I don't know how much time I will have for my blog, so I would like to have some guest post. If you are interested, just leave a comment with your twitter or e-mail so we can talk about this.

This was all for my rambling today :)

xoxo

The Beauty Bloggers TAG!

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Hello all :)

Today I was in the mood again for a tag and I saw this one going around. I thought it would be fun to do it and I hope you will enjoy reading. Anyways, here it goes....


Why did you start blogging and how long have you been blogging for?
I started blogging because I needed to share with someone my passion for beauty related stuff while no one is getting bored. I’ve been blogging for 7 months now.

Whose blog did you fall in love with first?
The first blog that I read was Temptalia. By that time I was aware of the beauty community on YouTube but I had no idea about beauty bloggers.

What was the first blogosphere hyped about product you bought and was it worth the hype?
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation. I seriously love this foundation for summer…

Miss Ramble #4

Monday, November 12, 2012

Hello lovelies :)

Today I am in the mood for a little ramble. Some time ago I was upset because of the "unfollow" thing and actually I was considering to take a break from blogging. Wrong thought...Since then, I actually understood that I do this blog for my self also and people can actually choose what they read. I understood that all the "unfollow" should actually motivate me, make me work harder on my posts and improve the quality. I will try from now on to alternate long post and shorter ones, to produce more quality content for my blog .

Last week I actually was pretty busy with schools and unlike other weeks I tried to get involved more in my studies as I am in my 3rd year of university and I having the courses which are part of my major.For

Essence Eyeshadow Brush Review

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Good afternoon ladies :)


Today I want to tell some things about a brush that I have from July. As you could guess from the title is the eyeshadow brush from Essence :)


NOTD Failed ?

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Good evening ladies :)

Today was a hard day for me...I cleaned my apartment for 3 hours, while I was thinking what I can post for you today...After cleaning the dust in the place where my nail polishes are, the idea came: a NOTD. Easy till now, no ? You would think from the title that "Failed?" can be the theme, but no... I failed with this one...My nails and the pictures didn't come out the way I wanted. I decided to keep my nails short for awhile and I basically paint them with nude colors so they won't be "the center of interest. I wanted to show you a "Nude with a twist" but it seems that I didn't choose the second nail polish right. I should have followed my instincts and use a nail polish with big chunks of glitter in it. Anyways, here it is what I done...

EOTD: My First EOTD

Friday, November 9, 2012

Hello my lovelies :)

Today I finally have enough courage to post and EOTD. After a lot of trials of making picture of my eye I managed to get few decent pictures. Lately I talk a lot about theBalm Nude'tude palette and I wanted my first EOTD to be realized with it...so, enough talking (writing/reading) and lets have a look.

Ah, something else...excuse my eyebrows, I'm in a phase when I try to let them do their thing (grow) so I can change their shape a little.


Tag: Why Do You Wear Makeup?

Thursday, November 8, 2012



Hello ladies :)


I feel like I didn't do a tag in ages and you know that I love tags :) So here it comes....the "Why do you wear makeup?" tag.

1) When did you begin loving make up?

I think I started to love makeup in first year at uni. That was in 2010. Before I was wearing makeup but I was buying only what I needed. Anyway, I got even more into makeup at the beginning of this year when I discovered the beauty community on YouTube and the beauty blogs.

2) How do you feel without make up?

I said several times that at least 3 days per week I am not wearing makeup, so I feel OK without makeup. I am not totally satisfied with my skin, but I learnt to accept it.

3) What do you like about make up?

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion

Wednesday, November 7, 2012


Hey guys :)

Usually I love The Body Shop and when I am around a Body Shop my boyfriend needs to hold me tight so I won't run in to buy something unnecessary like I usually do. I can say that the smell of those shops makes me wanna go in always. This time, he didn't hold me and big mistake, I ended up buying something that managed to make my skin even worse than it was: The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion.

Feelunique.com Wishlist

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Miss Ramble #3

Monday, November 5, 2012

Hello lovely people :)

It is not me to post 2 times in a day, but I feel that I need to share with someone (except my boyfriend) this. For about a week I have a problem: I got color matched in a shop and believing the sales assistant I ended up the wrong foundation color. How many times did that happen to you ?

 I wouldn't be so upset if I didn't love this foundation: I love the coverage, I love lightweight feeling on my skin, I love everything ....except that is one shade darker... I hate that now I have to spend again a fair amount of money to buy a shade lighter as I can't exchange this one.

I found a way to make it work till I get my right shade but still.... It is second time when I am listening to a sales assistant and I get the wrong color. For sure, this was the last time also...

On the good side, the shade that I have now would be a perfect match for my skin in summer and early autumn.

What was up with you these days ?

Hello ladies:)

Today I am coming back with a new "episode" from "In my makeup box" series:) This time I will try to keep it very short with my opinions about the products because I think there are more than last month.

Hello lovely readers!

Today I am rambling scheduled! When you will read this, I will probably be in Estonia, starting be more scared about my boyfriend's surgery which is coming soon. Anyway, in my last post I was saying that I had a bad surprise on Friday, when I saw that some people stopped following my blog. I am still quite down because of that. I do try my best when I am writing my post and I feel like I somehow failed....

Also on Friday I had a good surprise, I found theBalm Balm Jovi palette on an European retailer. Now I really feel like I must have it!!! I saw it when I was actually having serious thoughts to go on a spending bad, but now that is canceled:D 

Oh and let me complain again about weather: I didn't see sunshine in a really long time!!!! The weather here is really putting me down from doing anything :(

This was my short ramble. Please let me know in the comments what can I do to improve my blog and how you generally feel about it :)

Monday, October 15, 2012

Good afternoon ladies :)

I hope you are having a better day than I have and your day is more sunny than mine. Right now, in Finland is very cold and I have a feeling that winter is not too far :(  Anyway, back to the post....Recently I've been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award (again, and this is faltering) and, as I already did this kind of post before, I will just answer to the questions that the lovely ladies who nominated me asked. (Check out my other post here)

No, just around 4-5 days  a week.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Oil Free

Sunday, October 14, 2012



Good afternoon beautiful ladies :) 

As you could guess from the title, today I have a review for you. All this post will be about Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream Oil Free. I purchased this in middle of July (if I remember well) for about 5€- I bought it from Romania when it had launching discount and I also used some gift points. All in one, it was very cheap!

Miss Ramble #1

Friday, October 12, 2012

Hello beautiful ladies :)

*New series on my blog :) Mostly in this kind of posts you will be reading rambles, rambles and again rambles. *

In the last month or so the feed for my blog wasn't working, I realized that like 2 weeks ago but I was a little bit lazy to fix it. Today I put my laziness away and I logged into the feed burner to see how I can fix it and surprise: I have 130 followers through my feed. My heart is still beating  so fast...I don't know why, but is really exciting to me. I want to thank all my followers(GFC, Twitter, Feed, Facebook, etc) because I feel really appreciated...someone is reading my blog and this is making me feel so good!!!

After the thank you part, now let me tell you something more sad. I realized that in September I spent so much on makeup. I was shocked when I was going through all the bills from the packages that I received in September....the total is about 200€!!! OMG !! This is a lot for someone who doesn't have a job...so please help me!! Do you know any method to cure OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE SHOPPING? I really need to stop with this....when I receive a package filled with makeup I feel so good,  but when I think how much I spent I feel so ....bad (!?). I don't know if bad is the right word, but certainly is not a good feeling.

Next Saturday I will be leaving to Estonia with my boyfriend, but I will prepare some post for you for that week(I hope I will have time). He will get a knee surgery and I don't know why but I am scared for him...is a simple procedure but I don't know...I hope and I know that everything will be fine but for some reason I can't make this feeling go away.

In my makeup box: September

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

Hello my lovelies :)

I hope you are all doing fine and you will enjoy this new series on my blog. What is all about ? In the end of each month I will show you what makeup items I had on box placed on my vanity/makeup desk and say what I think about them after a month of use. Every month I am rotating the products so I will have a chance to go through all items in my makeup collection. This being said, lets show you with what I was playing this month :D

this is how the box is placed

Brush HAUL

Saturday, October 6, 2012

Good evening my lovely readers :)

Not so long time ago I was asking for your advice on what brushes to buy (see the post here). I was debating whether to buy  Sigma brushes, Real Techniques or Bdellium brushes. In this post I will show you what I chose....

Special Day and a Special Palette

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Hello beauties :)

Today it is a special day for me and for my blog: 6 months since the first blog post. I am so excited :D I was thinking what should I write on this special day and I decided to write about a special palette (as you guessed from the title): Sleek i-Divine Oh So Special palette :D

I realized that my reviews are quite long but I will try to keep this one short as the pictures will talk by themselves.

The eyeshadows (12) come in a sleek, black, sturdy plastic case. I like the professional look, but I do have some problems sometimes opening it. I do think that if you are nor careful enough you can break a nail .


Monthly Favorites: September!

Monday, October 1, 2012

Hello hello :)

Thinking what new posts I can bring on my blog, I realized that I don't do monthly favorites and because my blog will be 6 months old in few days I thought that it is a perfect time to start. Soooooo here it comes today my first monthly favorites :D

This months I have favorites in 2 categories: make up and random. Lets start with .... make up :)






What I've been doing in the last week....

Sunday, September 23, 2012

Hello ladies :)

I know I was kind of gone this week, but I needed to adapt to a major change: the new blogger interface. I just hate it! I liked the old interface way better. There is only one thing that I like more at the new interface: the text editor. Other than that it just makes things for difficult: I find it harder to go through my reading list, the comments section is annoying and I did find some difficulties when I wanted to make a change to the layout of my blog. Right now, I don't like it. I didn't like the Time Line on Facebook at the beginning also, but I got used with it. Probably I will get used with this change as well, but till then, please bare with me.
You can imagine, that I did more that "adapting"... Actually my schedule was a little bit busy also with university and my personal life...but now it is getting back to normal.
In the end, I want to ask you to check out this post and please help me as I am kind of undecided buy my self :)

This is all for now :)

Good evening lovelies :)

Anyway, here it goes...

How to fix a broken nail

Saturday, September 15, 2012

Good evening my beautiful ladies :)

Few days ago, something happen to me: one of my nails cracked so bad that cutting it wasn't even an option....


*sorry for the "creepy" skin around my nail but I covered it in a plaster till I found a solution
Do you want to know how I managed to fix it ?

H&M Makeup Sponge {Beauty Blender dupe?}

Friday, September 14, 2012

Good evening ladies!

I bet everyone knows about Beauty Blender, right ? Well... I do also and first time when I heard about it, I didn't hear the price as well. After hearing so many positive reviews I decided that I NEED it so  I searched it in online shops and when I saw the price I was like "OMG 15€ for a sponge?!Really??" I said that there is no way to spend so much on a sponge, unless I receive it as a gift. Months passed and I forgot about it, but recently, I was in an H&M store and I see in their makeup section one pink little thing... Can it be a Beauty Blender dupe for only 3€?

This or That Beauty TAG

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Good morning lovelies :)

Today I am doing another tag post as I realized I really enjoy doing them :) I hope you enjoy reading as well xD



1. Blush or Bronzer? 
Blush all day! I remember when I was much younger and my aunt was applying some blush to my cheeks and I was enjoying that hint of color ...

2. Lip gloss or Lipstick?
Lip gloss! I like a more sheer color on my lips. (Now I am getting more into lipstick also, but it is still not my favorite.)

3. Lip Balm or Lip Butter?
Lip Balm!

4. Matte or sparkle eye shadow? 
Now, matte eye shadow!

5. Eye Liner or Mascara?
Mascara! Applying eye liner sometimes takes too much time for me in the mornings.

The Sunshine Award

Friday, August 31, 2012

Hello beauties :)

Today I am finally writing the post for The Sunshine Award! First of all, thank you to Molly from The Make-up Counter for awarding me and sorry for doing this post so late :( If you want to know why I've been posting so rarely, check out my What has been going on post.

Lets get to the award...

What has been going on

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Good evening ladies :)

As you all noticed, my post haven't been so often in the last couple of months, but things have been going on with me. I think I said in a recent post that I moved back to Finland and I needed to settle back in the apartment and so on. What I didn't said, it's a bit more personal but I do think I own you an explanation.Right before I left Romania, I found out that I have iron deficiency anemia. One of the symptoms is that you feel tired. I also felt weak. Finding out this help me understand my mood in the last months and also my lack of energy. I did want to blog but most of the times I just couldn't find the energy. Now things changed a little since I started taking iron and I feel that my energy is coming back :) I do hope things will come back to normal soon. Anyway, I just to clear out that my iron deficiency is not because I am starving/I am on a diet or anything like this. For some reason, all people that found out that I have anemia started to think that I starving, because I want to loose wight. Totally not true!!Soon I will come out of the "dark" and post some picture with me and you will realize that I don't look like a person who is starving.

Last but not least, I want to apologize to Molly from The Make-up Counter who was kind enough to award me with The Sunshine Award, but, because my "condition", I didn't wrote that post yet (but will be up in the next couple of days).

This is it for today :) I just wanted to update you with what's going on with me and to thank you for still following my blog :) Now that I getting better, I do hope my posts will be more often :)

The 11 Questions Tag

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Hello again :)

I've been tagged to do this post by Molly at The Make-up Counter and Lily at Cosmetically Creative. Thank you Molly and Lily! xx

 This won't be actually the classic way of doing this tag as I just receive Liebster Award and they are almost identical. So instead of following the rules, I will just answer Molly's and Lily's questions, write here also the 11 questions that I wrote in my Liebster Award post and tag everyone who is reading this to answer them . I would really love to see your answers so leave them as a comment or a link to your blog post .

Liebster Blog Award :) (again)

Hello ladies :)

Sorry for my unannounced absence but it's been a crazy week :) I traveled quite a bit (from Romania to Estonia and from there to Finland) and then I needed to get settled back into my apartment in Finland, but now, here I am :)

While I was gone I was nominated (again) 2 times for Liebster Blog Award, tagged two times to do 11 Questions Tag and today I was nominated for The Sunshine Award :) Thank you everyone xx

Lets start with Liebster Blog Award :) I was nominated by ChrissyAi and Ellie .

This is the second/third time when I am nominated and I am redoing it because at my first nomination there weren't any question. As I was nominated 2 times I will answer both sets of questions but I will make only one set of questions for the people I will nominate.

"The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. What is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome."

How to get rid of pimpels, breakouts or however you want to call them

Friday, August 10, 2012

Hello ladies :)

As you can guess from title, today I want to show you a method for getting rid of pimples, breakouts , mild acne or however you want to call it :)

I said in a past post, lately I started to struggle with breakouts.I did a little research and I found out that clay masks really help acne and a lot more. There were 2 options: to buy an already made clay mask or to buy clay and make it my self. I chose to buy clay and make my own mask.

If you want to find out how I make it, keep reading...

Haul (essence)

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Hello ladies!

Essence products were on my wishlist forever and for months I was searching a way to get them as I couldn't find them in Finland and in Romania are available just in few locations (and as far as i knew my home town wasn't the case). As you all know, now I am in Romania, visiting my parents and 2 days ago I was around a shopping center with a friend and there I saw them: essence products!! I was so happy but I decided to go there alone later and have time to look and choose. After going there alone, here is what i bought:




Himalaya Herbals Acne-n-Pimple Cream review

Monday, June 18, 2012

Hey all!

I told you that I am back, and I'm back for good. Today is skin care time :)

During my high school years I was quite lucky and I didn't have major problems with my skin. Things changed a little when I moved to Finland, but since the beginning of this year it started to be even worse. Mostly I have breakouts on my T zone and very rarely 1 or 2 on my cheeks.This is how I got to try Himalaya Herbals Acne-n-Pimple Cream. . I bought it once when I was in Estonia (sometime in March) to visit my boyfriend's family and on that time I was ready to try anything in order to make my skin look better. I don't remember the price, but I know that it wasn't expensive at all.

Wet n Wild Petal Pusher Palette (review here )


Wet n Wild Petal Pusher Palette

Hi everyone :)

Today's topic isss...Wet n Wild Petal Pusher Palette! You don't know this yet, but I am crazy about purple! If I am in a shop, the first things that I see are the ones which are purple xD . Now I grew up a little bit, but when I was younger, more then half of my clothes were purple...I think this makes me look a little bit obsessed, but I suppose this was a way to express my self at that age...

Anyway, lets go back to Petal Pusher Palette: it comes with 8 colors and a dual ended applicator(at one side is a sponge applicator and on the other side a brush).

*in reality, colors are a little darker (I tried to adjust the colors in the picture as close to reality as I could)

e.l.f. Bamboo Concealer Brush

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Hey :)

Today I have for you one more review about an e.l.f. brush, as you can say from the title. I received this brush with my order, when e.l.f. was giving as a gift a bamboo brush with every order over 12€. I mention this brush in my Mini Haul post. I was planning to write about it at some point, but I decided to do it earlier as Gemma Meredith said that she would like a review on it. So here it goes...





What I think about this brush ?
