January favorites

Hello everybody!!!

This month I have been trying many new products and some of them have impressed me. So here are they :





  • First are the Isere cotton pads which impressed me because they did made a difference. I think you can actually see, if your cotton pads are good, because then you use less product on them and they feel better on the skin.

  • Next are the Disney lip balms by H&M one in berry and one in vanilla flavor. When I first used these lip balm I didn't really thought they were anything special. However when I got used to them my lips got more hydrated and the smell was getting better and better (I really don't know how).

  • Behind them is the Cien nail polish remover. I loved this nail polish remover : A) because it removed all the nail polish residue extremely easy B) Because you only need a few to remove your nail polish C) Because of the innovative and smart pressure plate that it has on top that makes it easy to control the amount of the nail polish remover coming out and it feels kind of luxurious and D) Because it doesn't contain alcohol in it which makes your nails and cuticles go super dry and yellowish.

  •  The Kings and Queens Shower gel and Body lotion in Queen Isabella, Cinnamon and Orange also amazed me this month. These two buddies got me longing to get a shower because they smell AMAZING. To me the smell seems a little like baballou chewing gum without although being overpowering. It is truly amazing and I definitely recommend it as you need the tiniest amount to wash/ hydrate all of your body.

  • In front of them there are two nail polishes the nude one from H&M in dazzling nude and the one with the glitters from wet 'n wild in the party of the five glitters. They are both amazing the dazzling nude is a nail polish that I had sitting on my small collection for a long time unused but this month I used the heck out it. It is really pale whitish nude color which makes your hands look tanned but in a good way. The party of the five glitters is something I discovered this month and has proved itself great as a top coat to all of my current nail polishes (especially the dark ones). However keep in mind that as any glitter polish it is extremely difficult to take off.

  • Next there is the I heart stage eyeshadow primer by essence. I've heard from a lot of youtubers and bloogers that they didn't liked this product. I however find it really usefull and use it every time I do my eye make-up. It makes the eyeshadows significantly pop and they stay put longer.

  • The syoss heat protector is the one I've been using this month and the main reason why I recommend is it's price. It is bigger than the sunsilk one and only a tiny bit more expensive. 

  • The leave in conditioner in spray on the right is from jumbo and I loved A) Because it was really affordable and B) Because it actually worked. However keep in mind that the more you use it the better results you'll have.

  • The Avon calming effects face primer I have been using as a foundation with a wet sponge. It doesn't provide any coverage however it looks really natural and is hydrating, perk that I found my skin really needs this time of the year. Also it is really build able if you use it the right way. (Tutorial coming)

  • Next are the wet 'n wild eyeshadow pallet in knock on wood. From the moment I heard that the wet 'n wild pallets were available at a store in my hometown I went straight for the eyeshadow pallets. Unfortunately the walking on eggshells was over. But I found out the knock on wood was also a great choice. The colors are really vibrant, they go on smoothly, feel velvety on the skin and are really easy to blend. 

  • Last but not least is another product by jumbo. The victoria hair conditioner. Now I have to warn you about this product : it smells AWFULLY . It has the worst scent I've ever smelled in any hair, skin or body product. Consider yourself warned. However if you can hold your breath for sometime or just put up with the smell this is amazing on your hair. It makes them super smooth and silky and it is amazing all in all (apart  from the smell).
So these have been my favorites for this month I hope you enjoyed and try some of them 
Thank you for reading!!!

The braid inception hairstyle

I have been playing with my hair a few days ago and came up with an extremely fast, easy and -in my opinion- beautiful hair look. Here are some pictures of what I used and how I achieved it.

So, as you can see my hair are pretty long. I am starting with fresh hair but you can use some dry shampoo and it will probably do the job for you. Also, this hair look can be altered so don't be afraid to stop at whatever step you like best or alter the whole thing!



In this hair look, I used a comb, some pins, some see-through little hair ties and the straightener, the heat protection spray and the little hair decoration bows are optional.

If you decide that you want to use the hair straightener spray some heat protector on your hair.

Don't forget the ends!

Then comb through your hair so that they are nice and without combs.

Start straightening your hair if you wish.

Get a part from on side of your head and one from another and separate them from the rest of the hair.


Here I decided to do the braids on the right part of my face. So I split the right part in two, crossed the left part behind my head and used it as the third piece of hair to make my braid.


Tie the little braid with and translucent small hair tie.


This is the result and you can keep that look as it is, but I decided to do more.


This is how the back looks like.




 If you decide to continue you can take one more piece from the left and the right side of your head part them the way you did before and continue with one more small braid.



The second and the rest of the braids that you will do must be looser than the first.




On this look, I continued, until I had three braids.


 This is the look after doing the three braids.


 After that, I bobbi-pined everything in place.



 You can also leave it to that but I continued braiding one more time.

 


 I spited my hair into three pieces and start braiding a normal braid. The three small braids were attached to the part closer to the right side of my head.



This is the final look.

You can also decorate the braid if you wish.
