Meet Fanni the stylist

Hello everybody!! A while ago I got in contact with a lovely girl named Fanni. So I though I would introduce you all to the wonderful work that she does.
As you may assume, she is a stylist in training and recently she created a profile on Polyvore where she shares her ideas with the world. That's why I decided to "steal" some of her creations and show them to you all!

Since we're in the winter season this is my favourite outfit so far. I‘m literally in love with this jacket ~ warm and cosy ~ can't do better. And combined with the scarf you can NOT be more in heaven! Another thing I like is the combination of baggy upper clothing item paired with skin tight leggings/jeans/...whatever, because it somehow makes me feel like my legs seem longer ~ even though that‘s completely untrue.

This is also really nice combination for cold days when you only wish to be warm and cosy. I love the earth colours here which I've been obsessing over recently. Also, I've been dying to get a jacket similar to this one but every single one I've tried on made me look absolutely ridiculous! ~ buuu jacket...now I have to suffer with this old coat. And of course, the big love of mine...a beanie! Can't have enough of them!

This is probably my personal favourite outfit! Ripped jeans and white T-shirt give the casual vibe and the shoes bring the whole outfit on higher level. So basically I would say this is perfect outfit to spend the whole day wearing it if you have a really busy day. You can do your daily activities...or go to work...or take a stroll around the city. Honestly, I can imagine myself wearing this pretty much every day to work in the future ~ when I actually have a job that is.

And lastly can I just say...the DRESS, the SHOES, the HAIR! Dead!! I really need a dress similar to this one, I don't need the shoes because I don't wish to die yet, and I really want to dye my hair red but there is so little of it I better not touch it...wouldn't be nice if I ended up bald.

I really hope you like this as much as I do. If you wish to contact Fanni, the creator of this outfits, I'll leave some links to her profiles.

          Thank you all for reading!

Nominated for the Liebster Award

Hellloooo people! So the other day I've read a comment that said I was nominated by a fellow blogger for a Liebster Award! So thank you Whitney .
This award is a way to discover new blogs that are just starting and don't have a lot of followers.
          There are also a few rules you have to follow. Those are:
  Mention the person who nominated you with a link to their blog.
  Answer the 11 questions provided by the person who nominated you.
  Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers (I based this on Bloglovin’ follower count).
  Create a new set of 11 questions for your nominees to answer.

          My answers are:
1. Do you wear makeup every day?
I do not actually. For a very long time I've been afraid to wear makeup because I've seen how bad it can influence your skin. Plus my mum used to tell me quite a lot of times how she has never used foundation which is why her face looks soft and young-ish now. However, I'm starting to get really interested in it so I hope I will gradually figure out how to use it mainly to cover some flaws.
2. What is your favourite place to shop?
My most favourite shop would be ZARA because I really like the elegant/sophisticated look. However, since it is quite expensive and I'm on a budget I usually go to C&A, H&M or some local shops and markets. There is also a place in Croatia and Slovenia called Nama which has everything from clothes to makeup to kitchen stuff ~ a heaven on earth!
3. How would you describe your personal style?
My style varies from sporty to comfy to sophisticated to hip hop/street. That also makes it kind of difficult for me because lots of my clothes don't match so most of the time I spend 2 hours just staring at my wardrobe.
4. Do you prefer high-end or drugstore makeup, and why?
Well, since makeup is something I put directly on my skin then I really don‘t care where have I bought it as long as it is good quality. There are a lot of affordable good products as there are some expensive products that are rubbish.
5. What is your favourite brand of makeup?
I really like Essence and Urban Decoy ~ with those Naked palettes.
6. What is one product you can't live without?
That would be my moisturising face cream. I couldn't go a day without it. I would probably feel like I have a cement mask covering my face! =o
7. Do you have a New Year‘s resolution, and if so what is it?
I usually don't make those resolutions, so no I don't have one. I do have some plans that I can't write much about in case they don't work.
8. Name three things off your wish list.
   a) Naked palettes
   b) MIDI synth and headphones
   c) a personal chef who will cook me healthy delicious meals cause I don't know hooow!! 
9. What do you hope to accomplish or gain from blogging?
Well, main reason I started my blog is because I've been more and more interested in beauty & fashion and for some time I've been getting tips from some other blogs. I though it would be interesting to make a beauty/fashion blog and see where it would get in a year and if it would reflect a change in me trought this year. Also I really hope some of my advices will help someone else.
10. What is your proudest or exciting moment so far from blogging?
Honestly, reaching first five blog followers.
11. How long have you been blogging?
If I remember correctly I've been blogging since September last year. Not too long and I'm really proud of myself for not giving it up already...mental high five!

Pampering you say?

Howdy y'all! How're y'all doing? I had a wonderful lazy Friday, and I'm not complaining at all! It was exactly what I needed. A bit of a me time to spoil myself. The only thing missing is a hot bubble bath or a massage that I can't afford because I'm a student, but oh well!

I wanted to do a review on these Dove products that I got for Christmas ~ thanks mum ~ because I absolutely love them!

Let me tell you something first. I travel a lot with train so I don't like to carry a large suitcase. This time I took two duffel bags. However, they were heavy so I tried to take as less stuff as I could, meaning I left all my beauty products behind. I thought ~ that's ok, I'll just use my mum's. How wrong was I! My skin reacted awfully. My cheeks were red and really rough on touch and it got me soo worried! I normally use moisturising cream for my face which I didn't have so I tried using Dove's body lotion. The change was instant! I woke up feeling refreshed and my skin was really soft. This is the body lotion with almond cream and hibiscus for all skin types as is the shower gel. The deodorant is silk dry with 0 % of Alcohol and it smells soooo good! I could go on about it all day. Honest!

Not trying to advertise or anything but this is not the first time I was amazed by Dove products so I highly recommend at least trying it once because they're really good!

If I may say, today was exquisite with a bit of pampering. My face is a very touchy subject for me and I do admit I take care of it as a mommy dragon takes care of her baby. I also use Balea's 3 in 1 cleansing gel for washing, exfoliation and as a mask. It has a fruity smell and leaves you feeling refreshed. I'm not sure in which countries it is available but you can get it pretty cheap.

How do you take care of your skin? Which products do you think are the best? Let me know ~ always happy to get new advice.
