It’s time for another update post. I decided to do this type of post every few months just to add more lifestyle to this beauty blog. Today I will be chatting about my life recently, some decisions that I made and just random thoughts that I have. I hope you like these type of posts as I love to write them.
At the beginning of February I decided to start project pan. If you are not familiar with the concept, it’s basically trying to use up some makeup or skin care products. As I have so much makeup I decided to create full face of makeup that I will use in my daily life, products that I want to get my money worth or some products that I haven’t reached for in a long time. I have been doing so good, I already used up few makeup products and it actually makes me feel really good. As I know how hard it is to use up product I don’t buy so much makeup, I try to limit myself.
I recently went through my makeup and body care collection and I realized that I have so much stuff. I did declutter of my makeup at the end of January, just trying to make more space and give away products that I don’t use at all. I picked few body and hair care items that I had for long time so I can use them up. I’m just trying to stop buying so much when I already have more than enough. So recently I’m not going on huge shopping sprees, I kinda buy just a product or two when I need retail therapy, but I’m trying to actually save money. Honestly I realized that I don’t need to buy makeup or beauty products all the time, I can live without that.
In February I got some bits from new Essence and Catrice spring/summer 2019 collection. I’m so grateful to Essence and Catrice PR for sending over products, so I can review them and share my opinion with you guys. Sometimes being blogger is hard as you need to constantly buy makeup for reviewing and making a content for blog, but I’m so glad I managed to get on their PR list so making content is easier and I don’t need to spend money on new makeup that I want to try, but technically don’t need, especially right now when I’m doing project pan.
I feel like blogging is not the same as it used to be. It looks like people got tired of blogging and there is not a lot of bloggers that actually blog. I know that life gets in way and it’s hard to make time, but it used to be easier. There were many bloggers that upload regularly, engage with other bloggers and support. Right now it’s not really like that. Also, how many of you still love Instagram? I have to admit, I’m totally off Instagram. I just can’t get back into it guys. My posts don’t get any likes literally, I don’t get new followers at all. I feel like I’m still on shadow ban, even though I use different hash tags every new photo. I don’t know I just don’t want to post if I’m being honest. I like Insta stories, those are fun.
While I’m waiting for The Weeknd’s new album I’ve been obsessed with The Carters (Beyoncé and Jay Z). They dropped album last summer called “Everything is Love” which I listen to last summer, but I still do. It’s such a good album to get you in mood. My favorite songs are: Heard about us, Friends, Summer and Nice. I also went back to Beyoncé’s self tilted album, in my opinion that is her best work so far. I love her music, but that album is just perfection.
If you follow me on Instagram (here) and watch my Insta stories then you would know that I’m obsessed with furry bags. I never knew I needed those bags in my life, but oh man I’m obsessed. Whenever I wear any of them I get compliments. I feel like they make every outfit much more interesting. I wear basic clothing, I’m mostly casual person. I like to spice up outfit with nice bag to give it a chic factor. Fur bags are definitely the way to do it. First my boyfriend bought me fur black backpack from Kendall & Kylie Jenner collection for Carpisa (here) as a birthday gift. I literally wore that back pack for two months straight. As I loved back pack so much, I got another fur bag. It’s super small cute bag (here) from Kendall & Kylie Jenner Carpisa collection that literally everyone ask me where is it from when I wear it. That one is dark green and I got matching bag charm (here) to go with it. My boyfriend treated me to Kendall & Kylie bag (here) for Valentine’s and I couldn’t be happier.
I’ve been thrifting only. I don’t remember when it’s the last time I went to Zara or Mango. I just think it’s so expensive to buy clothes, when you can basically find everything you need in thrift store, good condition items, some even new with tags still on. For example I got new cashmere beige jumper for only 2$. I mean that would be more than 100$ if I were to get it in store. It had tags and I was just so happy to get it. I’m hoping to find good denim jacket in thrift store, because I really want denim jacket for spring, but they are so expensive. Also I need new jeans, so I’ll spend a lot of money on those as they are quite expensive. I usually get jeans from Mango or Bershka as I can never find jeans that fit me in thrift stores. Yesterday I actually got new H&M shirt dress in thrift store, it looks so good. I remember wanting similar shirt from Mango last summer but I couldn’t spend so much money on it. Now I have this one and I’m literally all for thrifting.
