“…this lack of “starting” is attributed to two stupid things: perfectionism and fear.”

I found this amazing inspiring post from Emily Henderson.

MY FOUR CENTS ON STARTING A SUCCESSFUL CREATIVE CAREER

If you don’t know who she is, I urge you to go check her out as she is a wise, savvy, creative interior designer/ business woman/ so much more.

Her advice on just starting something, anything, doing the first step towards what you want to achieve is  more than helpful as I am just starting out with this blog, trying to figure out what exactly do I want this to be about and not be crippled with the fear of failure.

See you soon with more posts, hopefully!

Vichy beauty kit giveaway

Acum doua saptamani am aflat de la Denisa, blogger la Fashion in my eyes printre altele, de oferta de la Vichy – cea cu kitul de mostre gratuit valabil in limita stocului disponibil in farmaciile partenere pana la 31 Octombrie.

 
Sunt 4 chituri diferite in functie de tipul de ten, Aqualia Thermal – pentru hidratare , Idealia – pentru iluminare, Liftactiv – pentru ridurile profunde si Neovadiol pentru tenul matur. Kit-urile contin si cate un voucher in valoare de 20 de lei care poate fi folosit in farmaciile partenere pentru achizitionarea unor produse de la Vichy – lista produselor se afla pe spatele voucherului.

 
Eu am aflat tarziu de aceasta promotie <poate si voi sunteti in aceeasi stuatie?>, dar am reusit sa gasesc un kit Idealia cu mostre pe care inca le folosesc momentan in ritualul meu de ingriire.

 
In kit am gasit o mostra de fond de ten pe care inca nu am apucat sa o folosesc, o mostra de crema pentru ochi Idealia, care deja nu mai exista din ziua 1, si doua mici mici mostre de crema Idealia. Crema e Ok, dar are un miros un pic prea puternic pentru mine, lucru care l-am constatat si in cazul balsamului pentru ochi Aqualia Thermal. This would be the downfall. Despre serumul hidratant de la Aqualia Thermal am auzit numai lucruri bune, ca isi face treaba si hidrateaza tenul iar pretul este unul mai mult decat ok pentru ceea ce ofera. Astept sa il incerc si pe el soon.

 
Desigur, am folosit acel voucher si am achizitionat balsamul pentru zona ochilor din gama Aqualia Thermal pentru ca imi doream de mult o crema pentru zona ochilor. Dupa multe cercetari pe internet – in principiu aplicatia eMAG, <nu stiu daca si voi procedati asa> am ajuns la concluzia ca utilizand voucherul , voi iesi cel mai ieftin, si anume pretul acestui balsam a fost in final 62.20 lei fata de 67.50 lei daca l-as fi achizitionat de la eMAG.
Good job.

Two weeks ago, Denisa from Fashion in my eyes posted about the giveaway from Vichy – a beauty care kit with different samples – moisturizer, eye cream and foundation, available in selected drugstores until the 31st of October.

 
Aqualia Thermal – for deep moisturizing, Idealia – for a luminous skin, Liftactiv – for stubborn wrinkles and Neovadiol for mature skin were the four types of ranges provided in the giveaway. Each kit also comes with a 20 lei voucher to spend on other Vichy beauty care products.

 
I found out later on about this giveaway but it did not stop me and I managed to find my preferred kit, the Idealia one, which I still use to this day.
The day cream does its’ job, but I find it to have a strong scent, which I don’t like in skin care. The same thing I noticed about the eye balm from the Aqualia Thermal range, which I bought using my 20 lei voucher. In regards to the moisturizing serum from the Aqualia Thermal range I heard only great news as it has great reviews and people say it does what it promises, so I’m looking forward to trying that one out.
Using that voucher was convenient as I paid a good price for it, cheaper than eMAG, where I usually get all my products.
Good deal overall.

 

Just another beauty/lifestyle blog?

Probabil. Vom vedea.

Vanilla N52 is my color.

As vrea sa vorbesc despre fond de ten, si anume cel pe care il folosesc momentan, cel de la Bourjois Healthy mix. Chiar ieri mi-a ajuns comanda de la eMAG, doar el. Nuanta N52 o urmaream de ceva vreme pe aplicatie dar era indisponibila pana saptamana trecuta. Ieri am adus-o acasa si azi am folosit-o. Vanilla N52 is my color. Pana acuma foloseam N53, care era un pic prea inchisa dar o intindeam bine peste pielea rosie de pe nas si obraji si ma asiguram ca acopar si piele de pe gat si nu era asa vizibila diferenta. Eu stiu ca fondul de ten nu exista ca sa iti dea culoare pielii, ci ca sa uniformizeze tenul. Culoare adaugi prin blush, pudra, bronzer etc. So now I know I have the right shade.

Imi place textura, nu mi se pare ca se vede deloc pe fata, nu imi ridica puful/firele de par de pe fata si miroase bine. E clasat printre cele mai bune fonduri de ten atunci cand nu ai un buget enorm pentru machiaj si cosmetice. Vezi Lisa Elridge, Pixiwoo.

In perioada asta nu folosesc pensula ca sa il aplic, folosesc degetele si functioneaza perfect.

Probably. We shall see and see we shall.

Vanilla N52 is my color.

Today I want to talk about foundation, that is, the one I’m using at the moment, the Bourjois Healthy mix foundation. It had arrived yesterday and the shade N52 had been discontinued on the eMAG app until last week. Yesterday I brought it home, finally and today I am using it. My precious. Vanilla N52 is my color. I used to use N53 which was a shade darker but I made it work over my red nose and cheeks and going down the neck so you couldn’t notice it. The job of the foundation is to even out the skin, not give you color. For that you have blusher, bronzer, powder. So now I know I have the right shade.

I love the texture, you cannot see it on the face if you buff it well and it layers perfectly. It smells great and it does not not make my hairs visibly stand up. It’s considered among st the best budget foundations out there. See Lisa Elridge, Pixiwoo.

I used to use a foundation brush to put it on but recently I use my fingers and it works perfectly.

1st blog post. That’s it, that’s all.
