DIY easy body scrub / coffee & cinnamon

Hello everyone! 

Today I have an amazing DIY Cinnamon coffee body scrub recipe for you. Coffee and coconut oil are rich in antioxidants, and apricot kernel oil is great for moisturizing the skin. Also, when using coffee on your skin it supposedly reduces the appearance of cellulite and tightens the skin!

Furthermore, the mixture of coffee and cinnamon smells heavenly (if you like the smells of cofee and cinnamon, ofcourse)!

So... if I convinced you to try this body scrub, here are the ingredients you will need:

* mason jar or any other jar that can contain 100 grams of product
* 50g ground coffee
* 30g pink himalayan salt
* 20ml melted coconut oil
* 10ml apricot kernel oil
* 10g cinnamon spice


* Combine all the ingredients, mixing well.
* Scoop the mixture into your jar and seal.
* Apply a generous amount of the scrub on wet skin in the tub or shower. Massage in circles and rinse with warm water.

This makes approximately 100 grams of body scrub, and won't go bad for about 3-6 months. Just be sure to store it properly - don't allow water to enter the jar & don't let it stand in direct sunlight! If you see the contents separating, simply stir and use as usual.

Enjoy :)


Autumnal makeup look & tutorial

Hello my lovely readers! Hope you're all well and enyoing beautiful autumn colors & colder days! Today I have for you new photo tutorial for this autumn-inspired makeup look! Hope you like the look and pictures, and be sure to tell me what you think about it in the comments :)

 For the face, first I applied combination of Maybelline dream BB fresh 8-in-1 beauty balm in light skin and Catrice HD liquid coverage foundation in 010 light beige. After that, I concealed my blemishes and dark circles using Aura correct me concealer in 302 pastel beige and Catrice camouflage cream in shade 020 Light beige. With Manhattan soft compact powder in 04 Carmel I mattified my face.

To fill in the eyebrows, I used Catrice Eye Brow Stylist in 020 Date with Ash-ton and after that I fixed the brows in place with Catrice Eyebrow Filler in 010. 
 For the blush I used Catrice defining blush in 020 Rose Royce and for bronzer Golden Rose Terracotta Stardust in the shade 107.
On the eyes first I applied Maybelline color tatoo 24HR in Creme de Nude 93 all across the eyelid. After that I applied light brown and dark brown shadows in the crease, and green-gold shadow on the lid. All these shadows are from the Makeup Revolution Fortune favours the brave pallete.
After applying eyeshadows I applied Essence long lasting eye pencil in 02 Hot Chodolate on the upper and lower lashline, and the same eye pencil in 01 Black Fever in the waterline and tightline. On top of the brown eyepencil I applied dark brown eyeshadow from the palette. Lastly, I put on Catrice Glam & Doll False Lashes Mascara.
For the lips, I used KIKO smart lip pencil in the shade 704 and on top of that Wet'n'wild megalast lipstick in Cinnamon Spice.
For highlight i used combination of the two white shadows from the same eyeshadow palette. I applied it on the top of my cheekbones, nose and under the brows.

And here are pictures of completed makeup look! What do you think? :)


My 20 wardrobe essentials / Early Spring

Hello everyone! In this post I wanted to share with you my 20 fashion essentials for this time of the year. Even though spring is almost here, most of the time temperatures are still low, so that's why there are few warmer pieces :) 

Regarding outerwear, I've been still wearing coats and warm winter jackets, but had no time to photograph them (that's why there aren't any on the pictures).

As you can see, I like neutrals (grey, beige, black & white) :)

What are your essentials for this time of the year? 
Would you like me to show you some outfits made with this items?
Be sure to tell me what you think in the comments! xoxo, I.

Being inspired. /OOTD

Hello :) Here I am, after few months of not posting on the blog. I've always thought that writing and creating new content is only good when you are inspired, and when you're doing it because you want to - not because you have to. So, after some time of being stuck my inspiration returned and because of that you are reading this post. Hope you like the pictures, outfit & quotes, and have a beautiful day! :*
(P.S. music videos on the bottom of my posts are usually something that I listen to while writing a post, so listening to it might give the post some new outlook :)
"Indeed, the only truly serious questions are ones that even a child can formulate.
Only the most naive of questions are truly serious. They are the questions with
no answers. A question with no answer is a barries that cannot be breached.
In other words, it is questions with no answers that set the limit of human
possibilities, describe the boundaries of human existence."
