Blogmas #7: Who is Low Maintenance Beauty?

If you’ve been following my blog for a long time, you probably only know me as Maša. That Maša who never publishes her own photos. As mentioned many times I had a solid reason for keeping my privacy in that aspect, but now some things have changed and today – for the first time – I’m happy to share my face with you.

Če me spremljaš že dlje, me poznaš samo kot Mašo – tisto Mašo, ki nikoli ne objavi svoje fotografije. Že večkrat sem napisala, da imam za to tehten razlog, vendar pa so se zdaj okoliščine nekoliko spremenile in svoj obraz danes – prvič – z veseljem delim s teboj.

Naturally, this also means that my blog will change a bit. Now, I’ll be able to show you the make-up on my face, create a make-up look for special occasions or share my photos from events. I’m looking forward to the freedom this change will give me.

To seveda pomeni, da se bo nekoliko spremenil tudi moj blog – sedaj vam bom lahko ličila pokazala na obrazu, lahko bom ustvarila kakšen videz za posebne priložnosti, ali pa fotografijo s kakšnega dogodka. Veselim se svobode, ki mi jo prinaša to, da vam lahko pokažem – sebe.

 I only see it fitting that we catch up on a couple of moments from past years when you had to take my word for everything I was doing and testing. I’d like to share some photos with you – photos that show me for who I am and what I love in life. These are not professional photos – just those that mean something to me and captured special moments of my life. Hopefully, you like this change and will continue my journey with me.

Ker pa se mi zdi prav, da prineseva noter vsaj kakšen trenutek iz preteklih let, ko si mi morala vedno le na besedo verjeti, kaj se mi dogaja v življenju, pa s tabo delim nekaj fotografij, ki so mi še posebej pri srcu in kažejo, kdo sem, kakšna sem in kaj me v življenju veseli. To niso profesionalne fotografije – le takšne, ki mi nekaj pomenijo in ki so ujele meni dragocene trenutke. Upam, da ti bo ta sprememba všeč in da ostaneš z mano še naprej.

I love to travel, in fact that’s one of my favorite things in the world. I’ve seen over 40 countries and look forward to add more to the list. This photo is from one of the travels – Death Valley at 50’C. ***** Ljubim potovanja, ki so ena mojih najljubših stvari v življenju. Videla sem že več kot 40 držav in komaj čakam, da jih na seznam dodam še več. Fotografija je iz enega bolj zanimivih krajev na svetu – Doline smrti pri 50’C.

Where have I been? – Life update

Dear beauties,

Yes, I have sort of vanished from the face of the Earth in the past few months. I am sorry for that, but not much could be done about that. If you want to know the facts and reasons behind my disappearance, keep on reading!

As many of you may remember, I announced my pregnancy in beginning of January. My due date was 25th of March (which has come and gone and the baby is keeping us waiting) and since we didn’t buy a single thing until we told everyone, we had a lot to do in those three months.

I must say, that playing house all over again, decorating the nursery and buying baby clothes had been a blast and I enjoyed every minute of it. Everything had been set for about a month now, just waiting for the new addition to our family. I will share some photos once the little one arrives.

I had a really lovely pregnancy up until about 36 weeks (a normal pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks) and I was really proud of myself, saying sentences like »I could do this all the time« and »I don’t even understand why I have to go on maternity leave« and similar. Well, then 36th week rolled around and all of a sudden, every possible nuisance and pain related to the last month hit me hard. I got back pain. I got cramps. I got an inflammation of the carpal tunnel (which I still have and typing is hell). I began suffering from high blood pressure and swelling. I was filling ill all the time. I started having ligament pain. You name it, it hurt.

And yes, blogging was the last thing on my mind with my body so obviously set on hurting me.

For the past couple of days, I’ve been feeling a little better, but it’s possibly also because I know that it’s really going to be any day now that little M. joins this world. I have some posts planned in the meantime, hopefully I’ll be able to post them normally.

And once I come back, we’ll have plently of reasons to celebrate with a nice giveaway!

Until next time, stay beautiful!


Your low maintenance beauty has fallen ill, so it was the nose-blowing and tea-making routine for me, rather than a make-up one. But, I have mustered enough energy to write a quick blog today. Since I haven’t made ANY progress, I though it would be fun to do a random TMI tag, followed by a Beauty Questions tag. I think that especially the latter one will be quite fun to read in a year or so, provided that I actually will follow up and do something spectacular regarding my looks.

So I searched for a TMI tag and came up with a 50 questions one that seems to be quite popular on Youtube at the moment. Without further ado, here are the questions and the answers.

1. What are you wearing?

Right now, yoga pants from Nike and a Kings t-shirt. Yes, I’m a huge Kings fan, although I’m a girl and live thousands of miles from USA. Do you know that #11 Kopitar is Slovenian? Didn’t think so 🙂

2. Ever been in love?

I think I’ve been in love, yes. It’s what I would describe my current status as.

3. Ever had a terrible breakup?

Quite a few, so I wouldn’t really get into that. Fun fact – if your bf asks for money for his birthday and you break up months before, he might still call you on the day and ask for the money. I tried to pick up my jaw from the floor for weeks after that.

4. How tall are you?

168 cm or 5,5. Yes, I had to Google that one.

5. How much do you weight?

Too much. My weight is really bouncing up and down lately, but I consider myself to be overweight. FYI, in Slovenia, my size is M, and in USA I’m a XS. So… my enormousness is obviously very relative to the continent.

6. Any tattoos?

Nope. My body is a temple 😉

I would get a tattoo, if I would think of anything that I would want to carry around with me for the rest of my life. So far, that hasn’t happened yet.

7. Any piercings?

Do earrings count? I only have those, and I’ve only had them done when I was 18 years old. Pretty pathetic, I know.

8. OTP?

Mhhhm… I really had to think about this one. Maybe JFK and Jackie. Or, Jace and Clary. I won’t get into that one either.

9. Favorite show?

Right now, the Game of Thrones. I also LooVe the Big Bang Theory and Family guy.

10. Favorite bands?

I’m really not that into listening to music. I am around blabbing people all day and I enjoy my peace and quite. But if I could choose any band to go and hear, it would be something classic, like the Rolling Stones. From performers, I would have to say Madonna.

11. Something you miss?

Without sounding to shallow, because I really miss people I’ve lost in my life, what I also miss, is a Starbucks, Victoria’s Secret and Sephora in Slovenia. Those, I miss.

12. Favorite song?

This changes constantly. Right now, it’s Happy by Pharell Williams. That always gets me moving.

13. How old are you?

Just about to turn 30. So, a lot.

14. Zodiac sign?

Cancer. With all the positive and negative traits that come along with it.

15. Quality you look for in a partner?

I think that every person needs someone who they can trust. So being trustworthy would be number one. My husband can make me smile, so that’s an extra bonus right there. He’s also my best, best friend. View Post
