My Birthday Wish List

I am not someone who is obsessed with [my] Birthday, and tell everyone about it. But since friends and family keep asking me what I want, it made sense to make a list, and share some of the things with you, too. I have chosen to post the items that may be of interest to you.  Maybe it will inspire you to get these things for yourself, or maybe you are just curious about what I want. I know I am always curious to see all those wish lists.

These Two

New Phone. I mainly use my phone for calling or sending messages, and  I use my iPad mini for everything else on the go. This is why I like phones like  Nokia and Blackberry qwerty. My F&F find it to be a really weird thing. But it is not gonna change, I would like a new phone like that, too.

I also need a new pair of red Dr Martens. I have been wearing Doc’s shoes for as long, as I remember. My black pair is still going strong but the red ones need a replacement.

Something To Read

I am an avid reader, so my list could be ridiculously long but I have chosen to post  only the relevant [for the website] items.  And I still don’t have any of these books yet.

Gentlewoman Magazine (from Amazon and Amazon UK). I haven’t read magazines in ages but this one seems like the one I would like.

Speaking of the gentlewomen, I would like the The New Garconne: How to Be a Modern Gentlewoman book   ( Amazon and Amazon UK) very much.

Round to Ours Setting the Mood and Cooking the Food Menus for Every Gathering (Amazon and Amazon UK), an amazing cook book, and tips on how to throw a great party.

Makeup4all Turns 4 and Happy VDay

Today is a huge day for me, as Makeup4all turns FOUR!!!!

It’s hard for me to believe it, as I usually don’t think I ever had a hobby for such a long time. If fact, this hobby is now a huge part of my life.

I really wanted to have a little thank you giveaway but things were a little hectic for me both work wise and I had to solve some other things, so I am very sorry about that. But I promise to treat you to something nice soon 😉

Oh and by the way, Happy Vday. Although I am not the one who celebrates it, the fact that “my baby” is four today makes me LOVE 14th of February!

I hope you have planned something lovely for this evening . And thank you very much for all the support, it means a lot.

Love, Marina

Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review)

This is still the only brow product that I use on a daily basis. It makes the brows look fuller, tints them and holds them in place. This is love.

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 (review and swatches)

This month I have re-discovered my love for this base. It is like a good looking skin in a bottle. The skin is glowing and radiant, and the  tone is evened out and perfected.  I have written a very detailed review in the past, so you are welcome to take a look.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and face swatches)

This is still my favourite blusher, just like last month. Alluring Rose is a gorgeous warm nude with a spot-on radiance effect. It lifts the face instantly, I’d recommend these blushes to everyone.

Max Factor Colour Elixir Gloss Nude Pomade in 10 Pristine Nude (review and lip swatches)

This gloss  has

Beautiful Ladies:12 Reasons to Like Mischo Beauty and Musings Of a Muse

Every month I write about my favorite blogs and bloggers. I already made a post about my  favorite blog Makeup and Beauty Blog  and the wonderful Karen. I also made a post about awesome blogs of my friends Adina(Krasey Beauty) and Betsy(Autumn Masquerade). This month I would like to tell you about 2 more fabulous blogs!

Mischo Beauty


(Read about Kitiya from Mischo Beauty here)

Kitiya from Mischo Beauty is very beautiful and stylish. Here are some reasons why you should check out her blog:

1. First of all this girl is a licensed cosmetologist, esthetician and makeup artist.

2. Her tips are easy to follow and  are very useful!

3. She makes  nice photos on the covers of different magazines. And very often tempts me to get… those magazines 😀

4. I really enjoy Mischo Beauty posts about different salons and treatments that she tries. Plus posts about different makeup boutiques. Kitiya also tells about  sales and interesting programs.

5. I really like that she makes a focus on hair, nails and skin. I know enought about makeup myself but I am not very good at hair and nails care. I am now a fan of L’Oreal Professional and Kerastase products mostly because of her!  Check out the photos of her hair and you will understand why 😉

6. I love the posts with Kitiya herself. She always looks so great! Awesome style and just perfect.

This is what is written on her profile: Coming soon: Mischo Beauty (salon, spa, mobile beauty services and hair & skin products); The Mischo Agency (representation of hairstylists, make-up artists, fashion stylists, and skin/nail care specialists); The Mischo Book of Beauty and The Mischo Institute of Beauty.  So don’t miss it!

Musings of a Muse


(you can read abouth  Muse here)

I am sure that most of you knows the Muse! She is just adorable. Musings make my day 🙂 I would really love to chat with her one day in NYC (if I ever get there of course) 😀  I saw the real name of Muse  on her blog(her friend wrote it) and I think it is just  perfect name for her. But I will not publish it here because maybe she doesn’t want everyone to know it 🙂

Here are some reasons why you should check out Musings:
