Don’t follow me.. I am lost too

So this post was totally inspired by one super cool jean jacket.. But it is not about a jacket, not about an outfit .. Not even about an item…

It is about..

Well.. About me.. And maybe you can find yourself too!

I feel lost! Lost in my dreams, desires .. plans.. Lost in my madness and in my hunger for adventures.. sometimes lost in my routines and monotony. I am lost … lost in my feelings.. in my thoughts … in words and beautiful sentences. And there is nothing better sometimes to get lost in your own wonderland.

Good thing is while you are lost you find so much more – you can discover things about yourself you have never thought about because there is always another piece of you. Getting lost is challenging.. it forces you to become better version of yourself.

So don’t be afraid of getting lost, it may bring you to a better place 🙂

I know this post may sound a little bit “non sense” to somebody …but I am sure there will be someone who will find something in it.

3 Super Cute Back To School Outfits

Since many of you are already at school and in my home country the first day at school is pretty soon, I decided to give you three cute outfit ideas. I hope you can get some inspiration when creating your outfits 🙂 And of course you can rock those if you aren’t a student.

Outfit 1

So it is very simple one – just a boyfriend jeans and a basic white t-shirt. You can wear it with a sneakers and a backpack or even dress it up with flats or high heels. Here it is all about the accessories, so your look can completely change by just choosing another shoes, bag and etc. I pared it with a black choker and a cute baseball hat.

4d2fc1ea3f31ba682868fe217d584c60

Outfit 2

This one is my favourite but it may not work out for you if your school is too conservative and got a dress code. The simple suede dress in a nude colour can be a base of different outfits. I picked up this super cool jean jacket with a print, pink bag and sneakers. I am in love with those accessories. I am obsessed with rose gold and pink at the moment.

d560bd65450c24736563028603096772

 

Outfit 3

This outfit is super cute, comfortable and again very simple. Jean skirts are everywhere, you can find your perfect one, there are in every wash, shape. I picked up a pencil distressed jean skirt, paired with a basic black body-suite. I like the laced-up flats which again are going to be “In” for the fall season. The colour combo is totally giving you the right to choose some pop-out colour to be the accent.

NYX Lips Review

 

14269727_1407009155981972_344187017_n

In this post I decided to make a short review of three of NYX lip products:

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream & NYX Butter Gloss & NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss

14256818_1407009129315308_1964653722_n

Swatches – left to right:

  1. NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss – LG 135 A Beige Pearl;
  2. NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss – LG 101 A Sugar Pie;
  3. NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss – LG 129 Beige;
  4. NYX Butter Gloss – BLG 15 Angel Food Cake;
  5. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – London;
  6. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Antwerp;

NYX got a huge range of lip products – a lot of different formulas, colours and shades suiting different skin tones, good quality  and also very affordable price range.

First I picked up the very famous NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

“It’s not lipstick, nor is it gloss. It’s nothing like you’ve experienced before. It’s lipstick cream that goes on silky but looks soft matte.”

– NYX

The formula is good and it goes very smoothly on. The colour range is going from very light to dark and bold colours which will stand out and definitely will make your appearance.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is very lip-friendly matte, has velvet finish and  doesn’t dry out your lips. It lasts long, for me up to 3-4 hours, depending. The coverage is good, I apply two layers. After application it feels more creamy, but about an hour after this the feeling is a little bit more like dry but definitely not that bad. So can’t say i love the feeling but it is ok.

I picked up for myself two shades – London and Antwerp. I love both of them. London is a pretty nude colour.

14281366_1406987399317481_759350805_n

14256443_1407118785971009_2136691145_n

Antwerp is a warm coral pink. I also will love to try some of the other shades too.

14302584_1406987395984148_400299307_n

14269754_1407118809304340_2079004204_n

NYX Butter Gloss

“Butter me up with divine gloss that feels like it melts on lips.”

– NYX

NYX Butter Gloss is very creamy and soft on lips. It feels very nice, I love it. It lasts a little bit less than NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, but considering one appears matte and this one doesn’t, I guess it is normal. The coverage is medium. NYX Butter Gloss smells like a candy it is so nice! I love it!

Unfortunately for me, I picked up only one – shade is called Angel Food Cake. It is warm soft nude. I love the colour, the formula, the feeling, the smell! Definitely my number 1 out of those three lip products. And I will try other shades too.

14249108_1406987385984149_686412950_n

14302815_1407118835971004_2002970949_n

And last but not least..

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss

“Kiss me quick! Our signature Mega Shine Lip Gloss delivers shine moisture and softness and envelops lips with glistening color. The finish is both creamy and steamy and ensures knockout glamour.”

– NYX

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss comes in 35 different shades.  It goes smoothly on the lips and the feeling is nice and a little bit sticky.  It smells like some kind of a candy or more like a chewing gum. The finish is almost like metallic, it is very shinny and glossy. It lasts more than NYX Butter Gloss.

I picked three shades – Sugar Pie, Beige and Beige Pearl.

Beige Pearl is the lightest and almost doesn’t appear on my lips. It looks like I have no-colour lip gloss. You can only spot a little bit of a cold tone in it.

14218483_1406987375984150_950297666_n

14302777_1407118825971005_231577704_n

Sugar Pie is a little bit more warm and goldish but still very light coverage almost no-colour on my lips.

14249052_1406987372650817_2113201356_n

14287680_1407118795971008_136613766_n

My favourite one out of those three shades is Beige. But it doesn’t suit the name because it is more pink than beige. It has medium coverage and it is very pretty warm pink.

My Bratislava Trip in Photos

After Prague, I went to Bratislava. I stayed there 3 days and was planning to go on a day trip to Vienna from there because it is only an hour – an hour and half distance. So if you want to enjoy relaxed atmosphere in Bratislava I suggest 2 days.

The charm of Bratislava is all concentrated into the old part of the city – Stare Mesto. Paved small streets with crowded coffee shops and restaurants, amazing old buildings, a lot of churches and interesting statues.

15 advices to my teenage-self

mean girls

There are a lot of things I am very proud of and make me feel very happy, so I am not regretting a single step I took. Because if I change one small thing I could be in a very different place right now.. But If I go over over again I will follow those advices:

  1. If you don’t like something change it. If you can’t just accept it!
    Either it is the way you look, the way you behave or people you have relationship with. Everything depending on you, you can change and if you can’t just deal with it and stop waisting your energy thinking and talking about it.
  2. Say YES to new things!
    If your friends want to go try a new food or you are considering starting a dance class, just try it! You may be surprised how fun it can be and you may discover new passion of yours. If you don’t like it that is OK.
  3. Learn things to benefit your future self!
    You never know how useful something can be! When I was younger I haven’t learned how to ride a bike because I was scared and I said to everybody I will never need a bike so why I have to learn?! Years later I wish I did but I still can’t ride a bike and now I am feeling like I missed a lot of fun!
  4. Don`t spend your money on stuff, buy more experiences!
    When I started working I used to spent whatever I got left of my salary on buying clothes, bags, shoes and etc. which not very surprisingly I have never worn!  Now I prefer to buy experiences either it is an airplane ticket or a movie ticket because those money I never regret spending!
  5. Travel! As far and as much as you can.
    While traveling you can learn so many things not only for places, cuisine, people, traditions and etc, but also about yourself. Every trip is a challenge. It will make you more open-minded, more confident and of course happier!
  6. Be kind! Always..
    Sometimes it is hard, there are a lot of people out there having a bad day or a bad life.. It is their choice! If you want to have a positive happy life you have to be positive in every  way. Keep in mind that your behaviour is representing yourself not others.
  7. Don`t be afraid of making new friends!
    Still dealing with that one 😀 Sometimes it can looks like the most difficult thing in the world and if it does.. let it go. Don`t force yourself, friendship comes natural. There are just those people who will keep your interested, make you feel good and conversations will never end! I am so thankful I have friends like this <3
  8. Love yourself!
    You are beautiful the way you are! I know especially nowadays it is very difficult to fit in all those beauty standards, but you DON`T have to because you are unique and gorgeous!
  9. Don`t compare yourself to others!
    Looking up to someone can be good but don’t compare yourself to your classmates or those girls on the magazines. Be busy to think how you can be better and work on yourself. Don`t be afraid to have your own style and show everyone who you really are. If you like your hair short, keep it that way. If you feel better when you wear black clothes, do so. Don’t  do thing just to be like someone else.
  10. Learn to define your strengths and weaknesses!
    This will help you to realise what do you want to do and who you are. If you can sing or draw don`t be afraid to show your talent. If you feel good when you talk to people, do so.
  11. First love is not always the greatest! Don`t cry over a boy.
    It is just not worth it! The right person will not constantly make you sad/hurt/angry.
  12. If you ever find yourself in the wrong story leave!
    No matter is it a relationship, friendship or just a wrong place. Don`t be afraid to put yourself in first place and speak up for thing you don’t like. When I was at school I was a friend with a person who I didn’t like and I wasn’t happy with that. Now I realise how much better it could been back then if I just cut off that person.
  13. There is time for everything!
    Don`t try to grow up faster. Every stage in life has its own beauty and you will miss so many things from you childhood.
  14. Do whatever makes you happy!
    If going to dance classes makes you happy, then go for it! If your parents want you to go to university for a lawyer but you want to study design, choose the one you think it is right for you.
  15. Don`t be afraid to dream!Always! and do it BIG!
    Don`t pay attention to what other people say, don’t let anyone tells you your dreams are too big, too stupid or too unrealistic.

P.S:Share with me your advices down below in the comment section!

Sephora Sheet Masks Review

Most probably one of the most famous face masks! Inspired by Asian beauty sheet masks, Sephora combines active ingredients and fine textile. Everybody are talking about it and I haven’t heard a bad opinion so far. So out of curiosity I decided to try one of Sephora Sheet Masks.

sephora

There are 8 different masks in this collection, each one is with different ingredients for specific skin type:

Avocado Face Mask: Nurtures and supports healthy skin by offering intense nutrition and relieving sensitive areas.
Green Tea Face Mask: Mattifies and purifies to soothe skin, minimize shine, and reduce the appearance of outbreaks.
Pomegranate Mask: Awakens, energizes, and tones the skin for a fresh appearance.
Algae Face Mask: Detoxifies the skin to get rid of impurities that cause dullness for a fresh, radiant complexion.

sephora 2
Orchid Face Mask: Moisturizes and evens skintone to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Lotus Face Mask: Locks in water to reduce the signs of fatigue and strain for a stress-free and rested appearance.
Pearl Face Mask: Perfects and brightens with natural-origin pearl to create high luminosity and visibly minimize irregularities.
Rose Face Mask: Provides deep moisture and brightening properties through natural rose extract.

I picked up Green Tea Mask because my skin is oily.

14081264_1389748897707998_1453966977_n

How to apply?

  1. Clean you face and let it dry.
  2. Unfold the mask and peel the extra film.
  3. Leave for 15 minutes.
  4. Massage to absorb and there is no need to rinse.

Sounds very easy! And it was. It is super easy so apply and definitely it is way better than regular masks.

How do I feel?

Before applying I have to admit I had some doubts it will make a difference from the very first time. But surprisingly it did! It smells very nice and in the begging it feels a little bit strange but then it gets nice almost like you are in a real SPA. But I am not going to lie.. it looks ..hm something in between awkward and terrifying.. but luckily I was by myself when I tried it!

Any results?

My skin feels and looks so much better – cleaner and fresher. I just love it.

Do I think to try it again?

Definitely! Can`t wait to go to Sephora so I can try also some of other type.
