I'm on a vacation | summer 2017

I wasn't sure whether I would do this or not, but I'm going on a vacation (I already am on a vacation as you read this) and I decided that my blog needs a week off too.
This wouldn't be the case if I had Internet on my vacation, but since I didn't manage to enable it and take my laptop with me, there won't be a post this next week. I'll be back soon and then we're gonna get back on track. I honestly hope that this one week vacation won't terribly affect my blog and that you'll still be here when I come back.

I'm coming back on 28th of August OR 4th of September with some new ideas!

As usual, thank you for coming, reading and commenting. Contact me if you have any suggestions or questions.

& have a great summer (or winter?)

4 smoothie recipes

Is summer perfect for smoothies or what? Although we're going towards the end of the summer, I'm still loving them and they're basically all I eat during these hot days. They're easy to make and so tasty. To be honest, I don't know if you can go wrong with mixing fruits.
Today I'll show you 4 easy recipes for really tasty smoothies I made. There are no weird ingredients or special ways of making them. You'll just need a blender and cute cups.

Pack with me

As I mentioned in a previous post about summer vacation skincare and beauty essentials, I'm going on a three week vacation. Now, I'm traveling by bus on some relations so I need to pack bus friendly - meaning one suitcase and maybe one backpack. 
I also made a free packing list for all seasons. I really hope you won't forget anything while packing. And now I'll show you just few tricks how to pack more efficiently with less things and more space.

Dream dressing room

I know I keep this blog mostly for beauty, hair and skin care products, but I got an email proposing an idea to design my dream dressing room. At first, I wasn't quite fond of the idea as I'm not that kind of blogger, but I do have a word 'lifestyle' in the title and, since I incorporated some recipes already, I think I can put here something different like this.
Note: Although they did reach out to me, this is not a sponsored post. I don't get anything by doing this. To be honest, I don't know what they're gaining out of this (since I'm not even mentioning them)...

My lipstick collection

Some time last year, I realized that putting on just a lipstick can make you look more put together in the shortest possible time and without any special effort so I started buying them. I haven't even thought I would reach for them this often. Since I realized I have more lipsticks and lipglosses than a "normal" girl would have, I thought it's time to share the collection with you.
I keep all my lip products in these two acrylic stands and one glass which is actually a candle holder painted in my currently favorite color - copper. I also modified larger stand so it would have more storage space and I showed it to you in my DIY post about it.

Summer vacation skincare & beauty essentials

I've already been on a one week vacation, but I'm looking forward to my 3 week vacation in the late August. As I planned this first week in quite a rush, I forgot some things (although I made a free packing list). Now I know what I really need in my beauty bag, so read my list.
As you can see, during summer, I don't really worry about makeup as I tend to go all natural wherever I go. However, some minor improvements may be necessary so I included those too. I'll start with and concentrate on the skin care products.

No post 27.7.2017.

As you can see I didn't post yesterday. I had (have) some family problems (nothing too serious, but enough not to be able to work on my blog). Also I didn't have Internet for 3 days.

New post will be up on Monday as scheduled.

Thank you for coming!

Barry M color changing lip paint

You can't tell me you've never been intrigued by weird colors in make-up. There’s something really appealing in colors you know you’ll probably never wear. But you have to have them. I always think these would look great for a photoshoot. When am I ever going to have a photoshoot? 
For most days, I keep my make-up simple and very ordinary. Standard brownish smokey eyes, just a bit of bronzer and a nice mauve lipstick is all I need. Then I did this look and everything changed. However I still needed an every day make-up.

Remington Pro spiral curl tong

I already wrote one 'hair tool' post and I said I got something else which is a hair curler. Let me introduce you to my new favorite thing. If you want to read part one of this, post is Simply straight straightening brush.
As I have curly hair by nature, I never thought I would actually want, need or love a hair curler. Also my family doesn't know anything about hair or beauty, so I never expected something like this, but they did great with this one.

What's in my bag | summer 2017

I change my bags a lot. Whenever I go somewhere I pair my bag with the rest of the outfit. You can see all of my bags in the post My bag collection. However I always keep my essentials in one bag ready to go just in case I really need to storm out. Currently, all my stuff are in a black backpack that usually goes great with all of my casual everyday outfits.
I usually carry only stuff I really need so you won't find old receipts, expired stuff or anything like that. I can proudly say I keep my bag really neat.
