I have been very good with the beauty shopping lately, or at least I want to think so, and have been getting some other things instead. So I have only picked three items recently ( I am about to buy a new Kerastase shampoo, foot cream, new face SPF, and a body scrub to be fair, but those are the products that I need).
I have finally bought First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads x60 (got them for £22 from here with free shipping), and so far I really like the mild formula and the visible results. Review coming later.
I have also picked up a mini set from NUXE which includes a cleanser, body cream and a cult NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil, which is the reason why I’ve got the set. Although IRead More
I don’t write about style/fashion, as I don’t really follow the trends and usually wear very simple clothes, and a lot of black… (Here is my Pinterest “style” board )
But I thought it was worth mentioning my summer essential – denim shorts. I have been pretty much living in this pair. They go on so well with everything, and by everything I mean: black, white, red, burgundy and stripy t-shirts and tank-tops.Read More
I have a slight obsession with cool-toned shimmering lip glosses, the sadly discontinued Guerlain’s KissKiss Gloss in 800 Crystal Pearl has to be my favourite gloss in the World. I am actually always on a hunt for a good dupe. Plus, despite having tonnes of lip products, this is the kind of lip glosses that I manage to use up.
This is why I had to pick up new L’Oreal Glam Shine in Dazzle 201 Sparkle Shower. By the way, there are tonnes of gorgeous shades and several finishes in the line, so they are definitely worth checking out.
And this gloss is really nice, it feels great on the lips, moisturizing, non-sticky or gloopy at all. I also like the applicator (similar to YSL) which “hugs” the lips and helps with the application. While this shade is quite forgiving that may be something useful with darker and brighter colours.
I also have to mention aRead More
It seems like I did not write about red in quite some time… This is why today I want to share about my top 3 red nail polishes. I love red nail polish so much that it is even my Twitter’s header photo.
So what nail polishes are we talking about?
Marc Jacobs Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola (swatch)
This is probably my all time favourite red! It is a hot tomato red which is opaque with only one layer, it is glossy and shiny and last pretty well on my nails. Whenever I am in doubt about my manicure shade – I go for this one. And how gorgeous is that bottle?

I had a relatively long hair and my natural colour for years (here is a photo). And… a) I have a lot of hair but it is thin and doesn’t look that good b)I had the same, more or less, length for years and years; plus I did not colour it so I got very bored, as I used to change my hair style all the time in the past.
This is why back in February I’ve asked to chop off all the thin and damaged hair, so I ended up with a shoulder length hair style. It was a big change but once I was over a slight shock, I knew that I was ready for more experiments. This is why last week, I changed my hair style completely, and I even had it coloured for the first time in years.
It is nothing too dramatic, just a darker shade of cool toned brown which is still not as cool (toned), as I wanted it to be. My natural colour is really cool toned, and I hate anything warm/reddish on myself. But I find that it is even harder to get a spot-on dark hair than blonde (I was blonde for several years).
