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.

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 :)

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

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.

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 ?
