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!

NOTD It's Snowing in My Purple World

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:)

Sigma Mrs. Bunny Travel Kit review

Friday, December 14, 2012





Hello ladies

Sorry for the absence but the “crazy days” are here. I bought this kit in October (see my haul post here) but I wanted to use it for a proper amount of time so I can see also how it survives washing. 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.

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.
