Spring/Summer Wish List

Hey everyone,
As you all know spring is coming! YAY! You can tell I'm excited.. I don't really like winter, because it's so cold and this year the winter was nearly without any snow, which makes it even worst. When it's like really cold, the sun is shining and there is snow everywhere, that's the winter I like, but nooo I couldn't get that this year. Anyway Spring is coming and Summer ( I can't wait.. so many plans ), and I made a 'little' list of things I really want for spring/summer time. I'm sure I missed something out, but here are some things I really want... for now.. at least.. for now..

Films! Lately I'm very very into films, all I can do now is watch films and YouTube, but that's a different story. So I'm just watching films all the time, whenever I have time and later I want to buy them all! So yeah.. lots of DVD's.

Crop Tops Last week I finally bought a crop top, just a long sleeves black one and I fell in love with it, since then I have been looking for them and I need them, when it gets hotter!

Back or Nude Small Bag I do have a black one so I'm looking for a nude one a bit more, but if I came across any black ones I may get it, anyway I'm looking for a small nude bag that will be great with anything.

Michael Kors Fragrance I didn't smell it yet, but I just have this feeling that I'll like it and I will want it! But yeah I want his new perfume.

Lip Sticks I want to buy myself a lipstick that will be a darker colour, but also it will be nice for spring/summer. I do have natural darker lips, so if I have a lipstick or lip gloss that is light it doesn't always look nice, that's why I'm looking for a darker, but still a bit light colour. If that makes sense.

Sunglasses Looking for a nice sunglasses for summer and for now I can't find any that I like, but I'm looking.. so yeah..

Jars Yeah that's an odd one to add to a wish list, but any way.. I was watching Zoe's video ( Zoella ) few weeks ago when she did the House Items Haul video, and she bought a lot of jars and I just got inspiration that I also want some, thought I have no idea what to do with them.

Yankee Candles I fell in love with them recently and I just need more of them in my life!! :P

Shoes As you may see there are a lot of them on the photo, I really want just classic black sandals for summer, white converse as I'm wanting them for sooo long now, black oxfords as my old ones are not so amazing anymore.. and they don't look nice and good with everything like they used to, black or nude classic high heels as I don't have any, the next would be high heels sandals - I just picture them with boyfriend jeans and a basic white t-shirt and a leather jacket! Don't you just think it will look amazing? Also I will need some ballet pumps, like seriously I have one very old pair and I need more for this summer! The last ones would be white vans or keds, I have been wanted then for so long now and I really want to try something new with shoes this summer, even though it sounds kind of as a standard I still want to try it. I think I'm getting this obsession for shoes from my best friend.. that's not good.

Jeans Simple I know.. what I need are some darker skinny jeans, maybe high waisted and a pair of lose boyfriend jeans.

Dresses  Recently I got into dresses for some reason and I really want more, especially when it will get hotter and when I'll have my new shoes ( the ones listed above.. I really want them. now.. ). So yeah just flowy, colourful dresses - best with collars.

Watch So yeah I know.. all of the ones I really like are very expensive so probably I'm not going to get one but it's nice to dream :), I'm in love with rose gold and I've been looking at watches from Michael Kors and Marc by Marc Jacobs. They are just wonderful.

Hope you liked this kind of post, of you have any questions, requests, comments leave them below.

What I Took With Me For Winter Break?

Hello everyone,
So I'm having winter break... finally! Though one week is already gone, it's still nice to have some time off. I can't get myself together to actually do some work now, which is pretty bad, as I have so much homework and studying to do. Anyways I was on holidays with my family for a week to the mountains, the weather was amazing and I thought I would do a post about what beauty products I took there with me. It's not everything, but here are just the things that I believe are most interesting.

Let's start with some close ups...

Eau Thermale Avene Cicalfate Repair Cream - When I had like really bad skin earlier last year I want to a pharmacy, where a lady said it's very good product, when you have blemishes or spots that need to be 'repaired' as they are sore/red. I started to use this and after few days/week the redness is gone and the spots or blemishes are healing. I use this whenever my skin is getting worse and I just put a bigger amount on the spots in the evening. It's greasy so don't use it before applying make-up and I think the best time to put it is in the evening but also try not to go do bed right after putting it on. After all I love this cream and it's already my second tube, also it lasts for a very long time.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O - I wrote about this in my July Favourites. I have done through like five or even more bottles of this and I'm not going to stop using it. It's just the best product ever!

Tony&Guy Heat Protection Mist - It's my second bottle also a love product that I can't live without. I wrote about this in my August Favourites  so you can go and have a look and read something more about it.

Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume - I have a love hate relationship with this product, because I do love the Batiste Dry Shampoo's, so I decided to try this XXL Volume one, because it sounded very interesting and on the second day when I'm bored and I just don't want to wash my hair I wanted to use this and... well it does the job to give volume and make my hair look fresh,also I really like the smell, but it leaves my hair very dry, not very nice to touch and unhealthy. I've tried different methods to use this but I doesn't really work, so what I do is I spray it on my hair from a long distance and only at the roots of my hair in the top to give it more volume, even if I just washed my hair and I need volume.

Eau Thermale Avene Clean-Ac - I have been using this for a while now, when I was going for holidays I didn't take the full size bottle and I had the sample one that was just prefect for the whole week. I use this before applying make-up, it's for oily, blemish prone skin so prefect for me and it's quite hydrating for the day. I'm not like a big fan of this, but it's not bad. I'm still looking for a good moisturizer.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion -  I recently discovered this product and I'm quite happy about it. It's very good for moisturizing in the day or night, it makes your skin softer and healthy looking. I use this every night and in the morning my face is not dried out. I just started using it and I bought the full size bottle which is huge so it will definitely be with me for a long time.

LaRoche - Posay Toleriane Teint Foundation in number 10 - I have been using this foundation for a very long time, it's a medium to high coverage, the sade is a bit too dark for me but other then that it's aright. I wrote about it in my September Favourites so go and have a look.

Bourjois Bronzing Powder in 52 - Also a great bronzer, probably better for spring/summer but whatever! Wrote about it in my November Favorites.

Maybelline Falsies Volume Express Mascara - Love this mascara as you may know if you were reading my blog for a while, I wrote about this in my July Favourites and December & January Favourites .

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm - Recently bought it as I finally was in the stores in Poland, really like it, my lips are soft and moisturized after it, the smell is very nice. Definitely going to buy different ones in the future.

Rimmel Scandalise Eyeliner & Avon Long Lasting Black Eyeliner - yeah I know both are eyeliners, but I'm still trying to get use to the end of the Rimmel one so I took two just in case. About the Rimmel one I wrote in my December & January Favourites   and about the Avon one I have never wrote because just recently I got into black eyeliner and the winked look on my eyes. It's a very good eyeliner, it's easy to use and stays on for a very long time.

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer and Stay Matt Powder. - Love both the concealer and the powder wrote about them in my previous posts. The concealer is now one of my favourites and I wrote about it last weeks post December & January Favourites  and about the Stay Matt Powder in my August Favourites.

Catrice Defining Duo Blush in 020 Peach Sorbet - I don't use this often anymore, but I didn't really pay attention to my make-up during this holidays so I took it just to give my cheeks a bit more colour. It a bit shimmery, but it's a very light and nor very pigmented blush so it's just to put something on the cheeks when you are in a rush.

Inglot Eyeshadows - As you know I really like the Inglot eyeshadows so when I was packing I rearranged the colours to the ones I will need the most. If you want to know these colours go and have a look at my December & January Favourites for the shimmery ones and to see the number of the matt brown/gray colour go and see my November Favourites .

Rimmel Apocalipse in the colour 102 Nova ( pink one ) and 600 Nude Eclipse ( nude one ) - I really like these two lip sticks/lip stains. They are very long lasting and easy to wear and put on. The colours are very pretty and I'm thinking of buying third one in some red colour.

Essie Nail in Russian Roulette (red) and Chinchilly (gray/brown) - As some of you may know Essie are my favourites nail polishes ever and there is just nothing wrong with them. These two colours are amazing for winter and I really love wearing them, as they can change the whole outfit.

Barry M Nail Polish in Blueberry - Such a lovely colour, I know it's more for spring/winter, but I just love this colour and I wore it quite a lot recently. Barry M have very good nail polishes that last very long time and the colours are amazing.

Inglot AMC Cream Concealer in 64 and Inglot Eyeshadow Base - About the concealer I wrote quite a lot in my December & January Favourites so you can go and have a look about that, but when it comes to the eyeshadow base I'm not so sure about it. It's alright but not as I wanted it to be, my eyeshadows still crease after applying it, sometimes yes it does work, but sometimes not so I don't know why and how this can happen. What I know is that after finishing it or even during I'm going to buy a different one.

Maybelline Color Wisper  in Coral Ambition - Lovely lip balm with a little bit of pinky/peachy colour in it, great if you just need to put something on your lips.

Burberry Summer - Love this scent, and I know it's winter and I'm using a summer fragrance, but I don't car I love it. If you want to know something more about it, I did a post about my Favourites Fragrances so you can go and have a look.

Brushes - I do take quite a lot of them, but I just feel like I need them all. I still do have some left at home, but these I feel are the most important ones. I love these brushes, I love using them in the morning and I don't know what I did before using make-up brushes. You can see some of my reviews about few of these brushes in my August Favourites,  November Favourites and December & January Favourites 

I hope you liked this post,  it turned out to be a bit longer then I thought. 
I'm not sure if it's any different then the others ones, as in the style I'm writing, but I'm working on it.

December & January Favourites

Hello everyone,
Sorry I didn't post last week, I was so busy with school and all that, also I didn't really have an idea for a post. Today I realised that I didn't do a December Favourites and January had passed so I'll combine the two months and tell you guys about my favourites these past 2 months.
Also I was just thinking I want to change some things up on this blog, I'll do a separate blog post about it when I'll have more ideas on what to change because for now I just have few. So if you have any ideas on what i can do the posts about tell me everything.

Let's start with lip products and by that I mean the Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Lip Glosses. I got them long time ago and I was using them right after I got them, later I kind of forgot about it. Lately I have been loving them so much. The packaging is amazing it's so beautiful and cute, the product says on very very long time, the smell is incredible... the Bubble Gum one is my favourite as the smell wins everything,  the second one is also very nice, a it different more of a fruity smell but also amazing. Also they taste just like the flavour... yeah I know.. but I had to try. The only bad side of them is that they are sticky so if you don't like sticky lip glosses they are not for you. I don't mind it and for me the smell wins.

Right: Passion Fruit Pop

Next one would be my new brush from Zoeva, I read some reviews about it and I decided to give it a go. I always had all of the Real Techniques brushes and I loved them, but I wanted to try something new and also I really wanted a blending brush so I bought it. I really like it, it's one of my favourites brushes now, it's so soft and it does the job perfectly. There is nothing wrong about it, also it's not very expensive so what's more to love?   

Zoeva 228/ Crease
Next would be my my lovely black eye pencil, I wanted a black pencil for so long, because I had and old one that I didn't like. I heard some good things about it and I wanted to try it. It's a good eye pencil, it's soft on the eyes, the colour stays on very well as it's waterproof so that makes it stay on for a very long time and it doesn't smudge. The only thing that I don't like about it is that after using it for a long time it's not that easy to make a nice fine line and even if I use the sharpener it's not the same as it was at the beginning, but I do have to work on it and I'm sure it will be okay. 

Rimmer Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal - 001 Black 

Next thing would be this Inglot concealer, I bought this a while ago now and well I wasn't so sure about it. At first I used it on some of the spots or blemishes and under the eyes. If you want to use it under the eyes and you don't have big under eye circles then it may work for you but I'm not so sure, also you should use a brush to apply it, not just a concealer brush, if I used this under my eyes I used the Real Technique Deluxe Crease Brush. It's alright to apply it, but it can look not so good after few hours even it you apply powder over it. So you may ask why is it in my favourites? well I have been looking for a concealer for so long now and after using this for some time I figured out that it you apply it with a concealer brush on the blemishes and then later tap it with a foundation brush or a buffing brush. It hides the very nicely maybe not for long but for few hours it looks nice. The thing I don't like that if you put too much it looks greasy and it doesn't make your skin look healthy. For now it's a good concealer, but I'm still searching for a good coverage concealer. If you have any good concealers to try,  let me know please! 

Inglot - AMC Cream Concealer - 64

Also you may notice that I have one more concealer in my favourites and it's this Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer. It's a concealing and highlighting one, I use this mainly under my eyes, around my nose and sometimes on small blemishes. It's an amazing concealer. It stays on very well, the colour is amazing - I have very pale skin so it's hard for me to find anything in my shade this on really blends to my foundation and skin colour. It conceals under eyes circles and highlights them very nicely. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this product, the only thing is that it doesn't work very well on the spots or blemishes. 

Match Perfection Concealer & Highlighter - 030 Classic Beige 
This mascara is my all time favourite one,  I was writing about it in my July Favourites. Lately I was using a very natural make-up as I'm so lazy in the morning with eyes especially. I just use this on my eyes and I'm ready to go. It makes the eyes pop and it looks so natural. I just love this mascara, the brush is so amazing and it curls   the ye lashes a bit also. 

Maybelline - The Falsies Volum' Express - Black Drama

This Victoria's Secret is one of my favourites body cream EVER! I asked my dad to but my a body cream because in my city we don't have a Vectoria's Secret shop. I was very surprised when he got my this one as he was a bit afraid of the smell.. well he got it correct! I love sweet smells and this one is just perfect. The smell is so sweet it's like honey, almond, raspberry and flowers all in one. It's just the best! It's very hydrating and the smell lasts for a long time. There is nothing wrong with it it's just perfect! 

Victoria's Secret - Midnight Dare Raspberry & Sandalwood Ultra - Moisturizing Hand and Body Cream
The next thing will be my Inglot eye shadows, I got them for Christmas and I fell in love with them. The colours are amazing, the quality is very good. I use this colours the most now. The dark navy one is a very strong colour and well I think I have to get myself to use it, but I absolutely love it and I just need an occasion to wear such a dark colour. The navy one is much darker then in the picture, it's very similar to the one that is on the Urban Decay Naked Palette in the colour Creep. The gray one is a very nice metallic/shimmery  meringue-gray-blue-lilac colour, that is great for creases or all over the lid if you will use much darker colour as the crease. The brown/gold colour is just amazing and it look beautiful with the light vanilla one, they are both shimmery, it's my staple for the nude eye make-up. 

The Navy one: 321
The Gray one: 420
The Gold/Brown one:  406
The Champagne/Vanilla one: 395
The last beauty thing would be my favourites Nail Polishes. Of course they are essie and well I don't really have to explain why I love them, because there is a essie nail polish in every of my monthly favourites. These three colours I have been loving recently! They are very wintery and they can change your outfit so much.
