I have been super lazy with my hair recently. I always find time to wash it and style it, but I forgot to properly treat my hair for at least 2 months now. As a result, my hair has become dry on the ends. Even my L’oreal Elvive oil, didn’t work. I have heard many good reviews on hair products with argan oil. I’ve been thinking between Macadamia and Moroccanoil hair masks, but they are way to expensive – $50 for a hair mask, I mean that’s too much. After I while I discovered Argan Oil Nutrition Infusing Mask by Argan De Luxe. The bottle says that this product is infused with Vitamin E, Omega 3 and Omega 9 fatty acids, that help repair the hair and restore softness.

This one was just $10, which is a great price for this product.

The first time I tried it, I applied it and left to sit in my hair for about 3 hours. After I rinsed it, I loved the result – my hair was super shiny, healthy and increadibly soft. Since I have pretty oily hair, I was concerned about this mask making my hair even more oily. But it didn’t! Instead, my hair looked clean and nice for 3 days after, and then I had to wash it again.

The second time I used this hair treatment, I washed my hair before going to bed, then applied this mask, did a bun on top of my had and went to sleep. In the morning I rinsed my hair, blowdried and styled it as usually. My hair felt and looked very healthy and shiny. It had lotsa volume as well.

My advice about a hair mask is to use it once a week and always apply it on the ends of your hair (from your ears and down), because if you put it in your roots, they’ll get super oily. And also leave it in your hair for as long as you can – you will notice the results, I promise!

Speaking about the consistency of this mask, it is very creamy and thick.

You don’t need a lot of this stuff – a little goes a long way! The smell is nice too – it has a very distinctive smell of an argan oil, nothing too fruity or sweet.

So yeah, I definitely recommend this hair mask to everyone. It will moisturise your hair and make it look so much healthier. This is proobably the first hair mask in my life that I will be repurchasing because I loved it so much.

Is it me or Lily Collins absolutely nailed it? ๐Ÿ™‚ I mean this masterpiece by designer Zuhair Murad looks absolutely stunning on her. This dress screams gorgeous! I love the color, lace detailing, stripey skirt – it’s just perfect.

Image

Also the back of the dress looks amazing. I think Lily’s team of stylists works really well, as the jewellery choice is very subtle, yet chic. The hair looks heavenly too. Lily’s low bun is super simple but elegant – just what this dress needs.

And finally makeup. Lily rocks super pale skin, which definitely complements and accentuates her beautiful thick brows. We can see a little cateye going on and natural peachy tone on Lily’s chicks and lips. No contouring, no heavy highlighting and stuff like that. Also, Lily’s middle parting definitely draws attention to her beautiful features, great skin and stunning brows. Absolutely love this look!

What do you guys think?

OOTD: maxi, florals, denim and gold

Hi!
This outfit basically includes all of my favourite spring/summer fashion trends and it’s super comfy. The floral maxi dress is from Rare, my denim jacket I got from Zara, my leather bag is from Bershka, the watch – Paul’s Boutique (as usual:), bracelet – Asos, Iphone cover – Victoria’s Secret PINK, and my sandals (which you can’t really see) are from Warehouse. And if you guys are wondering, I used my Babyliss curling wand to style my hair.

Hi guys!

It’s crazy and I can’t believe April is over!!! The good thing is that I’ve tried a lot of stuff during the month of April and I would like to share with you, ladies.

Let’s start with my beauty favourites:

Image

The big bottle from L’oreal is my favourite hair treatment. ‘Extraordinary Oil’ makes my hair super heathy, shiny and smells lovely. Also it doesn’t make my hair look greasy at all. I apply 2 pumps of this stuff on my hair everyday, trying to put more on the ends. Amazing product. You can find it at feelunique.com and it’s around $20 as far as I remember.It’s quite expensive, but it’ll last me at least 4 months, so I think it’s a pretty good deal.

Next – hydrating eye cream from Garnier. I use this product before going to bed every night, and then in the morning after I wash my face I apply Garnier’s roll-on eye gel. Overall, I like Garnier as it works great for my skin. This particular cream has a nice light-weight and delicate formula which is perfect for young skin.

The 2 nailpolishes on the photo I’ve been wearing a lot lately. In fact, if I’m not wearing my black matte nails, you would probably see me with OPI’s ‘My private jet’. And I love the name too:)

I find that OPI and Rimmel nailpolishes are always such good quality, they dry fast and the most important – they have opaque formulation. Speaking about this matte topcoat, it’s great! Looks amazing on black nailpolish. Just overall a nice product for a very good prise.

I know I’ve been talking a lot about my ‘Peaches’ blush by MAC, but I really think it’s a beautiful color and I’ve been using it a lot during April. Also I like the combo of this blush with Rimmel’s Apocalips lip stain in color ‘Luna’. And OMG I love this lip product! Very moisturising, stays on well, nice color pay-off and it smells like… cucumbers))) Anyways, it smells like cucumbers to me – a very fresh light scent not typical-sweet-lippy scent, you know.

That’s all for my beauty and makeup favourites.

For my fashion favourites, I thought it would be interesting to write about a celebrity inspiration instead of just clothes. I mean, there is a bunch of celebs out there who have stunning sense of style and fashion, right?

Okay, this month I’ve been absolutely loving this guy’s wordrobe)). And I am amazed by evolution of his style.

Image

I am talking about a 23-year old rockstar from Germany Bill Kaulitz.

This guy used to always be edgy and unique in terms of fashion and self-expression.

That’s how he looked 5 years ago and this is how he looks now. Bill definitely grew up a lot. He used to look ‘gothic boy’ kinda cute and now he looks like a full-blooded hot rockstar.

I love his hair too – very edgy but still cute.

I know Bill’s fashion transformations are a bit over the top for some people, but I think his style is brilliant – a perfect combination of rockstar and a gentleman.

Going to my favourite movie of April, it is most definitely this one:

If you haven’t watched ‘The Devil’s Double’, ย watch it – you’ll 100% love it!!! It’s smart but also very entertaining.

For the music I’ve been listening most in April, I’ve picked these songs:

‘Talk’ ย by Coldplay

‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by Foster the People

and my favourite ‘Jesus for the Jugular’ by the Veils. It’s an OST from ‘the Devil’s Double’ btw, and if you watched the movie you’ll definitely remember what scene it is from ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

That’s it it for my monthly favourites.

Hello everyone,

First of all I wanted to remind you guys that the giveaway is closing up on January 25th, so hurry if you want to enter. You still have a chance to win!!! The rules are easy – follow me on Instagram, follow, comment and like this blog.

So the winner is going to get some of my all-time favourite beauty products:

Image

The winner gets bronzer, blush, mascara, lipstick in peachy-pink color, brow gel – all from Vivienne Sabo, which is an amazing French makeup brand. Also eyeshadow and highlighter/eyeshadow from Sephora and Rimmel’s Kate lipstick in nude color.

On weekend I am going to announce the lucky winner. And the giveaway is international btw

Also I wanted to mention, that one of the reasons I haven’t posted for a while is because I’ve been pretty busy with my photoshoot. I was not only a model, but I also did my hair and makeup, which I am super excited about:)

So yesterday the photographer contacted me saying the first photo was ready!

Image

I was a bit nervous because it was my first real photoshoot, but it all turned out to be so much fun!!!

The makeup I used: Rimmel’s Stay Matte foundation, Maybelline Affinitone concealer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, for my brows I used color ‘Tease’ from Urban Decay’s Naked2 palette, Vivienne Sabo’s Coup De Genie Eyebrow pencil in 001 to create a perfect arch and Fixateur Eyebrow gel also from Vivienne Sabo.

For my eyes I used: ‘Bootycall’ from Naked2 palette on my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes, as well as a little bit of ‘Verve’. On my lids I put ‘YDK’ and ‘Snakebite’. I usually use more of ‘Half Baked’ and ‘Chopper’, but this time I wanted a more drammatic look, so I used darker shades. For my outer corner of the eye I used ‘Busted’, which is a gorgeous shimmery dark brown color. For my crease I used a beautiful burgundy-ish color (if you can say that, it’s a shimmery mixture of burgundy, purple and brown) from Vivienne Sabo’s eyeshadow quad in 66. Instead of an eyeliner I used ‘Blackout’ from Naked2.

On my lower lash line I applied Maybelline’s Master Smoky shadow-pencil in ‘Smoky Chocolate’ and a little bit of ‘Busted’ on top of that. For my waterline I used a cheap 1$ white pencil, you can basically use any one you like, mine is from Golden Rose. I don’t use white pencils too much, but because I didn’t manage to get a good sleep before the photoshoot, I had to apply it. As for the mascara, I used, ‘Diva’s Lashes’ from Pupa.

Next step – bronzer. I used ‘Voyage en Provance’ from Vivienne Sabo (the same one I got for the giveaway). It’s not too shimmery, not orange at all. It makes my skin really soft and smells amazing. Then goes blush, mine also from Vivienne Sabo ‘Teinte Delicate’ in 12 (the winner gets one too).

Also a highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes, cupid’s bow and cheek bones. I used ‘Mineralize Skinfinish’ in soft and gentle from Mac. And to set my makeup I used Urban Decay’s De Slick setting spray because my skin is oily. But if you have dry to normal skin, you probably can skip that part.

Okay, for my lips I used a cheap nude pink pencil from Flormar, my favourite lipstick ever ‘Charme de Vous’ in 112 from Vivienne Sabo (the lucky winner gets it too) and on top of that I used the best lipgloss ever ‘Precious Pink Jewels’ from Sephora. It makes my lipstick last for good 3-4 hours, is not sticky at all! Very lightweight on my lips, smells great and has a perfect applicator.

That’s it for my makeup ๐Ÿ™‚ I know, it might sound complicated, but it isn’t. It took me around 35 minutes to do it.

For my hair I used my curling wand from Babyliss. I love it so much!

On my nails I got ‘Xtreme Wear’ nailpolish in ‘Black Out’ from Sally Hansen.

For my outfit (the part of it you can see on the photo), I am wearing a basic black tee from Zara, black leather jacket from Religion, my earrings are no-name, they are from a local store, my watch is from Paul’s Boutique (love it to death))) and my both bracelets are from Asos.

Hope u guys like it ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi guys!

When I woke up today, it turned out it was really cold outside, so it was high time to take out my winter jacket. Swackett is one of my favourite Iphone apps btw. It’s so cute how it tells you what to wear ๐Ÿ™‚

So I pulled out my favourite jeans from Mango. Honestly, jeans from Mango and River Island always fit me perfectly. The ones I wore today are simple navy skinnies. Mango jeans are also great for petites – I never have to shorten them) I love wearing these jeans with denim shirt also from Mango, that my lovely cousin gave to me. But because it’s cold, I also had to wear a jumper. It’s a stripey cotton jumper from H&M. I love how H&M stuff are soooooo amazingly cheap, yet their clothing are very cute and good quality too. For my shoes I wore my all-time favourite boots from H by Hudson (got them at Asos), unfortunately you can’t see them on the photo. My jacket is from River Island and my bag is from Paul’s Boutique.

Image

I also straightened my hair yesterday, it’s shocking how long it has become))

That’s it for my casual OOTD, hope you guys like it.

Have a great weekend!

Hugs =)

Remember me saying I’m going to show you the dress after alterations and also the way I’ve decided to accessorize it? Here it is. Hope you guys like it ๐Ÿ™‚

Image

The dress has awesome golden spikesย  on the shoulders, which I’m really obsessed with. Looks really unique, I think. Love stuff that is feminine but edgy at the same time.

Image

For my shoes I was wearing my leopard booties, also from ASOS (love this brand)). They are not only cute, but unexpectedly comfy too.

Image

My favourite clutch from Aldo. Soooo versatile!

Image

As for my arm candy, I was wearing my amazing Paul’s Boutique watch, which I’ve been wearing pretty much everyday, since I got it. On my nails I have one of my favourite nail polishes ever – 762 Plum Attraction by Revlon.

Guess who this is? My GORGEOUS mum=)

Sooooo pretty!!! And I love her dress.
