I'm tuning out.

Hello guys.

Firstly I want to thank you all for being here, coming for the first time or revisiting which is even more awesome.
Not to make this a long post, I'll just give you a quick update on what's going on.

So, I won't be publishing any posts until June (which is in a week and a half, I know) which will make me miss 3 posts, but hopefully it'll give me enough time to do stuff and prepare my posts. As you may know I'm posting on my personal blog too (and you can find weekly posts linked in each post on this blog). Although I find it easier to post personal stuff cause I'm just writing stories that pop to my mind, it's still time consuming.

Also, I'm currently in the middle of a lot of stuff. Some being looking for a job, writing my final paper, attending meetings and other stuff related to both my college and job so I don't really have the time to write this. And I'm disappointed in myself cause I'm usually good with time management, but lately I've been stuck in this rut with all college/job issues that it's basically all I think about.

Anyways, give me a week and a half.

Thank you!!

Essence metal shock nail powders (+ video)

Metal nails or nail foils were a huge thing now (they still are as far as I know) among all nail artists and manicure lovers. Although there are hundreds of powders and base/top coat combinations, and they can be ordered pretty much everywhere, I got my eyes on the Essence collection. Among other products, they offered metal shock powder and top coat.
I got powder in the shade #03 i'm so fancy (purple), #01 mirror, mirror on the nail (silver) and #04 a touch of vintage (gold) and I also got these cute mini eyeshadow applicators as I've seen many tutorials using these.

Pore cleaner | device review

In how many posts do I need to share my need for clean pores? Someone please help me! I went to a beauty salon for a professional lady to do it for me. I paid quite a lot of money, I've lain there for about 40 minutes, I felt quite a lot of pain and then I was done.
I was left with clean pores. Every single bit out of all of my pores was taken out. I've never seen my face like that. Absolutely clean and irritated. I also received all facial treatments afterwards so I was just waiting for the redness to go away. Well it all took a different turn the next day.

A pop of yellow

OK, let's first talk about how one page I used a lot, Polyvore, was sold so some other company and now the whole community is left without any of their works. I had more than 300 looks put together there and they're all gone. Without any warning. Thank God I used those looks for posts here so I have some saved, but my most recent ones are my favorites and they're gone forever.
Well, spring is back! Now that we're a bit pissed off and sad, I'll show you some outfits I managed to put together before the site went down. I have some more of these planned, but now I have to be very careful how I post these...
Note: Unlike any other fashion post from Polyvore so far, you won't be able to find links and prices of the items. Because the site no longer exists, unfortunately.

Makeup Revolution chocolate rose gold eyeshadow palette

It's been a month since I posted my make-up review (and I also review a Makeup Revolution product Retro Luxe Gloss lip kit). But you know those days when you just don't want to wear make-up so you have no idea what's going on in beauty world? Well, that's 90% of the time for me. And then one day I feel like going full glam for no reason. And then I look for my most beautiful make-up products and I feel like a queen.
It's safe to say I've transitioned from a simple black smokey eyes from 10 years ago to fun make-up, experimenting with it and, lately mostly using reds and a lot of warm tones on my eyes.This is something I never thought I would do. But here I am. And here's my newest palette.

Organizing jewelry (when you have tons of it)

When you Google "organizing jewelry", you get all the perfectly lined necklaces, drawers full of boxes for each pair of earrings, those "trees", "wire dancers" that hold your jewelry and all different kinds of 'perfect storage'. However, we all know that it's not realistic to have a separate wall reserved just for jewelry. 
I, for instance, have very little space in my room so I have to pay attention to storing everything properly. I'm also a bit of a jewelry junkie so these two things don't go well together. Now, I found a perfect way to storage my jewelry.

Spring shoe collection

If I had to choose my one weakness when it comes to shopping, I couldn't. You know I love it all. Lately, I've put a break on buying bags and I'm all into shoes. With spring being my favorite season of all, this is my time. I made sure I got some fun pieces I'll love.
Some shoes are new, some are old. I think it's totally not necessary to buy shoes (or bags or clothes) each year. I don't blindly follow trends so I think I'll love these in the future too and I'll get few seasons out of them for sure.

L'Oreal Smooth sugars glow scrub (grapes)

I have a feeling I've been going on and on about how I hate my textured skin, how I don't want any shine on it, how I want clean pores... Don't we all? Well, during last year, I stepped up my skincare routine, my make-up routine and overall caring for myself. Yay for me!
With all these changes, I'm glad I have some new products that I can try out. You never know what will suit you. So, recently L'Oreal smooth sugars came into our stores and I'm here to test them all. I already wrote a review on L'Oreal Smooth sugars clear scrub (kiwi) and all other masks and products by L'Oreal Paris.

Nivea Urban skin moisturizer

How important is moisturizer on daily basis? And how much do we struggle to find a perfect care for our skin? I don't know about you, but finding a good everyday cream is much bigger struggle than a person would expect. There are age groups, skin types, longevity, SPF, finish, feel... There's a lot to consider while finding a perfect base for your skincare.
After not having a moisturizer for way too long and managing with all different skincare products, I finally decided to buy a new one. Also, after trying some out of my comfort zone, I'm back to safe zone. That being Nivea.

Essentials: Make-up

With all bloggers, brands and youtubers bombarding us with all the make-up "you need to have" is's easy to get lost into it. You're constantly persuaded that you need just one more eyeliner, just one more highlight and there's no make-up without a mascara. So I sat down today and went through my make-up collection.
I don't need make-up at all (as I put full make-up on maybe (!) two times a month), but if I wanted to do some look, I found some essentials. A while ago (more like a year ago), I wrote two more 'essentials' posts and I showed you what I think are fashion essentials (really proud of that post) and nails essentials so check that out too.
