New blog look + A-Z tag!

I have been thinking about getting my blog a new home and a new look. It took a while (a whole month, to be exact), but finally, it’s here! I hope you like the way it looks – I think it’s prettier and much easier to navigate. On the top, you have different categories you can browse through and on the right, you can use search to look for specific things that might interest you. I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out although I still have a lot of work to do since all the old posts look a bit different and need a bit of TLC (and computer skills). Hopefully, I will get everything just the way it’s supposed to be in a couple of months.

Že kar nekaj časa sem želela svoj blog preseliti na njegov lasten naslov in mu podariti tudi nov videz. Trajalo je kar dolgo (cel mesec, da smo čisto natančni), ampak končno je tu! Upam, da ti je nov videz všeč – meni se zdi lepši in precej bolj pregleden. Na vrhu lahko najdeš različne kategorije zapisov, na desni pa z iskalnikom lahko poiščeš vse, kar bi te morda zanimalo. Čeprav bo s starimi objavami še kar nekaj dela, saj se jim je videz med prenosom kar precej spremenil, pa sem osebno zelo vesela, da smo že skoraj na cilju. Upam, da bo čez kakšen mesec vse izgledalo tako, kot želim.

While I was sorting through old content, I found an old tag post (almost two years old) that I enjoyed very much and wanted to do it again. I’m talking about the A-Z tag where you choose one favorite brand and one favorite product from that brand for the entire alphabet. I am missing H & I (since I apparently don’t have any favorites for those letters), but other than that – here they are!

Ko sem brskala po starih zapisih, sem našla tag, v katerem sem zelo uživala, zato sem ga želela ponoviti (do takratne objave je namreč že dve leti). Gre za A-Z tag, v katerem za vsako črko abecede izbereš eno najljubšo znamko in znotraj tiste znamke še najljubši izdelek. Priznam, da nisem našla nobenega res dobrega izdelka za črki H & I, ampak vse ostale favorite ti predstavljam tu.

A, B, C, D

Avon has many great products and it was hard to choose one, but I love the color of this Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Minty. It’s similar to Essie Mint Candy, but the formula is better and it stays on my nails for up to a week. Bell Hypoalergenic is a relatively new brand to me but I’m really enjoying the Mat Powder (natural effect) and I’m about to hit pan! It’s a fine tinted pressed powder which makes my skin look flawless but doesn’t cake up on the liquid foundation. Catrice is my favorite drugstore brand and I have a large collection, but the winners in my book are the Shine Appeal Fluid Lipsticks that are light, well pigmented and not sticky at all. The shades and the packaging are gorgeous as well. Dvorec Trebnik is one of the best Slovenian beauty brands in my opinion and I am really loving this Refreshing toner with hamamelis extract. It’s light, smells nice and really cleans off my skin well

Avon ima mnogo super izdelkov in težko sem izbrala enega, venar pa sem popolnoma zaljubljena v barvo Avon Nailwear Pro+ Minty. Spominja me na Essie Mint Candy, vendar pa je formula Avona po mojem mnenju boljša in se na mojih nohtih obdrži tudi po cel teden. Bell Hypoalergenic je znamka, ki jo šele spoznavam, vendar pa res uživam pri uporabi Mat Powder (natural effect). Gre za fin puder v kamnu, ki mojo kožo naredi čudovito, vendar pa ne ustvari videza maske, ko ga nanesem čez tekočo podlago. Catrice je moja najljubša znamka in moja kolekcija ni majhna, kot svoj najljubši izdelek pa sem izbrala Shine Appeal tekoče šminke, ki so lahke, dobro pigmentirane in niso lepljive. Prav tako mi je zelo všeč pakiranje in izbor barv. Dvorec Trebnik je ena najboljših slovenskih lepotnih znamk in Osvežujoči tonik z izvlečkom nepozebnika lepo diši, je lahek na koži in jo tudi dobro očisti. View Post

Midyear favorites 2015

You may have noticed that I stopped doing monthly favorites about 6 months ago. The reason is quite simple – I don’t have many new favorites every month, so I prefer not to talk about products until I have a firm opinion about them. With that in mind, I give you my mid-year favorites for 2015 – the products I used and loved in the first six months of this year.

Let’s start with body products. I’ve talked about both of these before.

My first favorite is Nivea In-Shower Body Milk with shea butter. I love the idea of moisturizing while taking a shower and it really saves me a lot of time. I prefer this formula for dry skin to the one for normal skin – the shea butter really gives it the additional *umph*.

Secondly, I’ve really been enjoying my Stenders Salt Scrub in Rose and it’s not long before I’ll completely run out. It’s a fine scrub with some rose petals in it – it gets rid of the old epidermis and also moisturizes, since it’s oil based. The only downside is the amount of time you’ll need to scrub your shower clean after using it.

For hair, I haven’t found my new favorite shampoo&conditioner combo just yet. The only thing I am including here is my Kerastase Elixir Ultime. I apply this to my roots and about 10 cm up after each wash and I feel I’ve had lot less split and dry hair in the past few months. This product is quite expensive, but the bottle will last you ages, since you need the smallest amount per day / per wash.

I was the last beauty blogger on the planet to get something from the L’Oreal Micellar line, but I now understand why everyone is so excited about it. I really, really like this micellar gel – the tiniest amount removes my daily make-up without any problems. It also does quite a good job at removing waterproof mascara, although I must admit that I usually tackle that with other products.

After L’Oreal Micellar gel, I tend to use the Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser. I have talked about this great product before – it’s really easy to use (massaged into the skin and rinsed off), smells wonderfully and leaves my face clean and fresh.

For moisturizer, I am almost done with the Afrodita Hydra Thermal 24h Ultra Moisturizing Cream. I really like this product – it’s a simple, no fuss moisturizer and it does its job. Also, from all of the products in these favorites, I would guess that it has the best price: number of uses ratio. View Post

(Very Pink) October Favorites

I’m not a big fan of these autumn months. They bring bad weather and I’m constantly cold, clients start burning budgets which means long hours and a lot of traveling, and the Christmas time seems a million of years away. But I am trying not to be too depressed by all this and search for happiness in little things. And here are five products that made me smile in October – a very pink month, obviously.

As I already mentioned, I dyed my hair brown a couple of weeks ago and the hairdresser was furious with me because of the condition of my hair. She suggested that I use some natural oil on my hair, which I am doing, but I still cannot my paws off my Syoss Glossing Shine Sealing Finish Fluid. It’s a big name for a great product. I take a drop or two of this, rub it into the bottom half and the tips of my hair and it gets an instant healthier and shinier look to them, while also taking some frizz away as an extra bonus. I will say that since it is oil based, it will make your hair feel greasier after a couple of days. Still, I think it’s a great product. I’ve picked it up in E. Leclerc for about 9 € and it will probably last me more than a year, so it’s great value for money as well.

Fall makes me want to dig into my stash and pull out some darker nail colors, while also tempting me to buy new ones. This month’s favorite is Bahama Mama by Essie, which doesn’t sound very autumnal, but I personally love it for this time of year. It’s a deep, dark plum color and would probably look fantastic with some brighter nail art on it as well.

Bourjois Happy Light matte serum primer has been my recent substitute for the Maybelline Baby Skin. Since I’m wearing more and more heavy moisturizers as the days grow cold and the air gets dry from the heating, I need a mattifying primer to take the shine away. This primer is great at doing that. It does feel somewhat heavy and it’s difficult to apply in small quantities since it dries so fast, but my face stays matte for about 12 hours without having to reapply any mattifying powder or use oil sheets. I got this at Asos on sale for about €12.

I bought the beautiful pink Essence Studio Nails nail corrector pen a while back and since I’m not too clumsy with my nail polish I’ve barely gotten through the first tip (I think there are 2 or 3 extra still waiting for me). At this rate, the nail polish remover will probably dry up before I am done with the tips, but for this price (I think it was about €2?), it’s absolutely worth it. For extra bonus, it nourishes your nails with jojoba oils and does not smell, probably since it is infused with Acai berry aroma.

Last up is the Make-up Revolution Anti-bacterial brush shampoo. I’ve loved this since the first time I’ve used it but I wanted to go through the paces and see if my brushes love it as much as I do. Now that I’m sure of that I can definitely declare it my favorite. It has been about 10 washes of 30 brushes now and I’m not even half way through the bottle which was about €7 at
