Video: DIY easy decor for pet lovers

DIY easy decor for pet lovers

Hello! Today I’m going to show you an easy decor for all you pet lovers. It’s super easy to make. It took me 15 or 20 minutes to make it. You’ll only need an artist canvas panel, a printed drawing of the pet you want to draw, a pencil, a rubber and 1 or 2 markers. Of course, you can add more details to the canvas. But I think the simpler the better.

Beauty wishlist 2017

Beauty wishlist 2017

Hello! Happy Easter everyone! Today I’ll share with you my beauty wishlist which includes more high-end products and products that are not easy to get in Bulgaria.

1. Too Faced Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette – I want to try something from this brand and their eyeshadow palettes are a product everyone loves. I liked this one the most because I think the colors are going to suit me the best. I love the peachy colors – ‘Just Peachy’ and ‘Bellini’. They are gorgeous. This palette screams “spring and summer”.

2. Zoya nail polish – I want to try a nail polish from each one of the three mentioned brands. Just from curiosity – to see if they’re better than my favorite Golden Rose nail polishes. I don’t have any particular shade I want, probably something nude or pink.

3. LÓreal Telescopic mascara – This mascara is Carly Bybel’s favorite which makes me believe it’s worth trying.

4.Essie nail polish – I already liked a few shades from this brand so it’s a matter of time to buy an Essie nail polish.

5.Zoeva Luxe Color lipstick in Floral Crown – I’m in love with this lipstick and Zoeva products in general. The color of this lipstick is amazing – everyday-wearable pink with golden particles.

6. Nars Audacious lipstick – Another lipstick addiction. Since Christmas I want a NARS lipstick and I’m patiently waiting to buy it on sale. I’m hesitating between "Claudia" and "Marisa". Both are pink and the difference between them is not so big. Emily from BeautywithEmilyFox recommends them. I have bought a few lipsticks after seeing them in her channel and all of them are great.

7. Burberry The Beat EDP – A few months ago, I had a sample of this perfume and I liked it a lot. It smells like peaches and it’s super lasting - more than 24 hours!

8.  OPI nail polish – Like Essie this brand is easy to get here. But I read a lot of negative comments about the durability of the nail polishes which makes me hesitate if I want to spend 5-6 euro for a nail polish which is not so good. But still I want to try it.

9. Lorac Unzipped eyeshadow palette – This one is going to be impossible to get. Lorac is not sold in Europe and I don’t want to pay a fortune to get the palette from the USA. I’ve read that Lorac eyeshadows are the best, they are the long-lasting ones on the market right now and super creamy, pigmented and easy to work with. The colors of this palette are wonderful.

What’s in your wishlist for this year?

The Ultimate Book Tag

The Ultimate Book Tag

Hello! Today I’ll answer some questions about books. As you probably know (or not) I love reading. I’ve spend a lot of time in my childhood and adulthood reading until 2 a.m. just because I wanted to finish a book because it was interesting.
Let’s get started with the tag.

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?
No, I don’t have a problem with that. I only get sick when the driver drives very fast. Unfortunately reading a book can’t help me when I get sick.

2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?
Hmm, that’s an interesting question. I can’t say that the authors I’ve read have completely unique style. I always found similarities to other authors.

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.
Harry Potter – always and forever. This is my favorite book series. Plus I’m not a fan of the Twilight Saga. I’ve watched the movies and they didn’t grab me. But the Harry Potter books are awesome. Although the movies not so much in my opinion.
1 – Magic
2 – The friendship between Harry, Ron and Hermione
3 -  Their adventures

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is it in (besides books…)?
Um, no. but my bags are big, so I can put books in them. Plus, I prefer reading on my tablet – it’s smaller, not so heavy as a book and you can read a few books at a time.

5. Do you smell your books?
Yes, I love the smell of a new book. But I don’t do that on old ones.

6. Books with or without little illustrations?
I’ve never thought on that when thinking about books, for me what matters is the book to have a good plot.

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?
I don’t think I liked a book that I don’t like now.

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!
I don’t think so.

9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?
The Zen of Steve Jobs

10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?
Rich Man, Poor Man by Irwin Shaw – but I have read only a few pages, because I didn’t like it. Which remind me to try to read it in the summer.

11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?
I write for my blog and for some other sites, but that’s all. Plus, there’s nothing in common between the book I might write and the articles I write.

12. When did you get into reading?
I don’t know exactly when but I loved books my whole life. I remembered in first grade my parents gave me a book as a present and I read it next year. So probably second grade.

13. What is your favorite classic book?
Pride and prejudice. I remembered a friend of mine complaining about it because they had to read it for school. I saw it at home a few days later and I stared reading it and I loved it. I think the mindset plays a huge role when you start reading a book as homework and as your choice. I never liked any of the book I had to read at school.

14. In school was your best subject Language Arts/English?
No, I didn’t like it at all. I didn’t like the books we needed to read after fifth grade. (Before that we have read children’s books and they were okay.) I didn’t like Bulgarian literature at all. And now I still don’t like it and I don’t think I’m going to read anything Bulgarian soon. It’s just not for me. Except for the children’s books – I like them.

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated…what would you do?
My friends know what type of books I like to read but if this happens, I’d say thanks and I’d try to read it. Maybe the second time I’ll like it.

16. What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?
I don’t like the Hunger Games so I don’t know and I don’t care. As far as Harry Potter – I don’t think I’d like to read something similar soon.

17. What is a bad habit you always do while blogging?
It’s hard for me to start writing. But when I start writing a post I finish it very fast. I can spend weeks without writing and when I start to write a few posts for the next week or so. And then I don’t know how to start until the next inspiring moment. I’m not that type of person who says “today I’m going to write about this, tomorrow – about this”. That’s not how things work for me.

18. What is your favorite word?
I don’t know. I don’t have any.

19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?
Definitely a nerd. I’ve always been and I’ll always will be.

20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?
Fairies. Like I said I don’t like vampires. I love the most the fairy from Cinderella. She reminds me of a lovely grandma who wants to see her granddaughter happy.

21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

23. Zombies or Vampires?

24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?
Let’s say forbidden love.

25. AND FINALLY: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?
Both, but if I must choose action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in.

So that was it. If you liked this tag, I’ll be happy to read your answers!

5 beauty favorites

5 beauty favorites

Hello! Today I’ll share with you my top 5 beauty items for the past couple of months.

I’m starting with the item I liked the most – Avon Luck EDP. Gosh, I haven’t been in love with a perfume for so long. I use it 4 months now and I’ve used only 1/10 of it. The smell is wonderful. According to Fragrantica this perfume is floral-fruity-oriental. The top notes are bergamot, red berries, mandarin orange. The middle notes are night blooming cereus and white flowers. The base notes are sandalwood. But in my opinion this perfume smells like green apple and nobody can tell me that there’s no apple in it. It’s long lasting – on my skin it lasts for probably 16-20 hours. In my opinion you can use it every season except summer. I think it’s going to be too heavy for the hot days. The bottle is chic and luxurious. If you see it on sale give it a try! You won’t be sorry.

I’m continuing with the second item from the brand – Avon Planet Spa Treasures Of The Desert face mask. I love Avon face masks and I haven’t used them for 2 years maybe. You know what they say “old habits never die”. I wanted to try something new and different from the masks I used before. This one is with clay and it cleans my skin very well. It’s easy to remove – only with warm water. After using it my skin is super soft and clean.

My next favorite product is Pirin Dream mattifying cream. It’s for oily and combined skin. I wanted to try something different from my all-time favorite face cream – Alverde Beaty and Fruity Mattifying Cream. I like this one for the cold months. It moisturizes my skin and protects it from the wind. But in the summer, it will leave my skin oily and I’m trying to use it up as fast as I can. The only negative thing I can say about this product is that it’s in a tube and when you don’t use it for let’s say a week there’s a dry part of the cream at the first pump which drives me crazy. That isn’t very economical.

I’m moving to the hair products. L’Oreal Magic Retouch in dark brown was my saver for the weeks I didn’t want to dye my hair. Until now my mom dyed my hair and now it’s my duty and the first time I was very nervous and scared that I would screw things up. But with foam hair dyes I had no problems at all. The product – it makes wonders! You just need to be careful not to dye your fingers or your face. It’s not so easy to remove. On my hair, it lasts till the next hair wash which makes it super economical. 50 ml is 5 euro.

Elseve Oil Luxury Double Elixir was a spontaneous purchase. I haven’t been using anything else on my hair except shampoo, conditioner and oils for my hair for around 2 years and I wanted to try something new. The product itself consists of two phases and you should shake it well before every use. What I like the most about this product is that it leaves my hair very soft after I dry it and the smell is pleasant. Which reminds me – I use it only on wet hair before hair drying it. I believe that it helps me with the detangling of my hair.
