My new hair care routine!

I recently dyed my hair, because I’ve had the same color for a really long time. I was in a desperate need of changing it, because I had terrible roots, split ends, etc,… I decided to get highlights, to brighten the color and make it look a bit more interesting. I was super pleased with the results, the color came out great and I love it.

But because I had really dark brown hair (dyed many times before), they had to use hydrogen on my hair, to get rid of the color that was on them and in the end they’ve put a nice golden/honey color all over my hair, to even them out.

Because this kind of technique is a bit damaging on your hair, it’s advised that you use a lot of oils and quality products on your hair, because they become dry and can more easily get damaged.

New in – Guess wallet

I was in a desperate need of a new wallet, so I was really happy when I saw this one. My current Guess wallet is falling apart and because I’ve had it for a really long time & loved it, I decided to pick one up from their store again.

This one is brown with a gorgeous pop of pink color. I love the pink strap that comes with it, making it perfect for carrying it around with me, when I just go out for some quick lunch during work or something like that.

Anti – Cellulite Cream: yay or nay?

I received this Cocktail 4d Body Lotion a few weeks ago from Afrodita Cosmetics. It’s a body lotion with refreshing effect for skin areas affected by cellulite. It has 4 active ingredients: lemon essential oil, sacred lotus, butcher’s broom and grapefruit essential oil. You’re supposed to use this product every night & morning, massaging it into the skin.

Ur the best thing? I Heart Makeup!

Licila.si surprised me with another makeup goodie, this time from a brand called I HEART MAKEUP. It’s a part of Makeup Revolution London, an affordable quality brand (click here to see my review). The palette has a really cute name – Ur The Best Thing Palette!

I received a pallete with 32 shades, 10 of them are mattes and 22 are shimmery. All of them give a very good color payoff, the packaging is nice and sturdy and it comes with a giant mirror – which I love!

OOTD Working Girl!

At the moment we’re having a bit strange weather for this time of the year. It’s supposed to be really hot & sunny, but it’s raining all the time and I’m wearing a blazer because it’s not really that hot.

 I’m really enjoying this OOTD. It’s simple, chic and at the same time really comfortable and put together. I wear this OOTD to work all the time & I love it.

I would also like to tell you a bit about a website I came across, called raise.com

It’s an online marketplace to buy and sell gift cards, where you can buy discount gift cards (click here to your favorite stores or sell (click here) your unwanted gift cards for cash. It’s an awesome website where you can find gift cards from different stores, even Macy’s, Starbucks, Victoria’s Secret, T.J. Maxx and much much more! Everyone can find something for themselves on there, and I think it’s super usefull and a great way to save your money.

I think it’s only available for USA at the moment, but I hope we can get something similar to this in Europe and even better, in Slovenia very soon!

 Did you ever hear about it?

My new makeup ‘storage system’

Recently I bought this cute, acrylic makeup stand and I love it! It has 2 compartments for brushes, 12 smaller compartments for lipsticks; a larger one that I use mostly for foundations/other face products and bigger items and in the back there’s another medium sized area where I keep my loose powders.

Storage system

Here I store my everyday makeup. All my other products are kept underneath it in white baskets. I really like this new system, because every week or so I move some of the products from the baskets in the ‘acrylic area’ – this way more products are in my ‘eye zone’ when I’m getting ready in the morning and I tend to use products more often if I see them and I don’t have to look around for them in drawers.

My morning skincare routine

In the past, I’ve had a lot of skin problems (blemishes, blackheads, very oily and shiny skin, etc), so I did a lot of searching on the internet, trying to find the cause of my problems and more importantly, how to prevent them.

I found out, that the most important thing in skincare is to always check for ingredients at the back of the product – the higher on the list that the ingredient is, the more of it is in the product. So my first thing was to avoid products that have ‘alcohol denat’ on the top of the list. This one dried out out my skin – ironically making it even more oily and problematic.

I also decided to narrow down my skincare routine to minimum – use fewer, but more quality products. And by quality I don’t mean more expensive.

So here are my top 3 choices at the moment.
