    REVIEW: Altruist Sunscreen SPF 50

    As you may know, I recently went to Thessaloniki. Just as we were leaving, we realised that we didn’t have any SPF (I always forget to buy a replacement!) with us and were wondering where to buy some from. Luckily, it was at that time that I received my package with the Altruist Dermatologist Sunscreen, which was kindly gifted to me by the brand. Such a perfect timing, isn’t it?  As a pale person I am always on the look out for a good sunscreen which will not leave me greasy and will keep me from turning into a raging lobster with skin so sensitive that even the pressure from…

    The Non-Glam Products in my Daily Routine

    We all read about the glam routines – the stunning highlighter, the boujie clothes, the brunches… Which is why I wanted to give the spotlight to the less glamorous things. Why not share about my favourite toothbrush, or my favourite razor? If these things help my daily routine in some way, then why shouldn’t I share them with the world? If it could be useful for someone, why not. I can think of a lot of these products, but because I don’t want this post to be too long, I will share only a few. I may make another one of these in the future, let me know if you would…

  • Review: Bioten Revitalise My Lips! Lipbalm

    My name is Diana and I am a lip balm hoarder. I can whip one out at any situation, just like the women in laundry detergent commercials do. Okay, not really. I have shamefully spent the last month with no handbag lip balm. I had to use a Maybelline lip gloss which resides in the back pocket of my bag. Not very convenient during the windy January weather. I have, however, recently finished my beloved Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla & Macadamia (absolutely divine) and went to buy a replacement for it. Along with it, I snatched me a new handbag lip balm – the Bioten Revitalise my lips! lip balm.…

  • You fell asleep with your makeup on? Here is how to fix the damage.

    We all know how bad it is to sleep with our makeup on. We all know it and try our best not to do it (right?). We diligently take the layers we’ve put on some 10 (or more, I am not the one to judge) hours earlier – oil cleansers, foaming cleansers, makeup wipes, micellar waters and so on, and so forth. I feel as if every time I read a beauty/health post about whatever, I always see the mantra written somewhere – never sleep with you makeup on. But it happens. Rarely, but it does. I used to be so bad at taking off my makeup. That was until some 3-4…

  • ’18 Beauty and Fashion Resolutions

    ​​SMXLL Happy new year   It is that time of the year again. The time of the year when everyone decides that starting now they will change their life. Everyone will become their healthiest and best self. For the 24 years I have spent on this planet I have found that nothing starts with a Monday, a beginning of a month, or a beginning of a year. So I have decided that I will not try to be a health guru all at once, but instead I will slowly gain progress and by the end of the year I will be able to say that yes, I got better at these things. I might even make a check-in in…

  • Review: L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara + Changing My Mind?

      ​​SMLXL   I mentioned in the previous post that I got the new L’Oreal mascara everyone has been raving about. I read here and there that it is a dupe of the Too Faced Better Than Sex, but I have never tried the Too Faced one and it seems ridiculous to spend so much money on a mascara I am going to throw away in 2 months. Just a preference.   However, although it is not a bad mascara, it is nothing special. It did not make me think “wow, this is amazing” at most it made me think “I am never trying the Too Faced one”. It just did nothing…

  • What I Bought From the Drugstore and Quick Reviews

      I must confess – I cannot walk out of the drugstore without at least 1 thing I absolutely don’t need. HOWEVER! I did it yesterday. Or almost. I mean, I didn’t need a new mascara, but I’ve been wanting to try the L’Oreal Paradise ever since I started seeing USA bloggers talk about it! Is it really that good? A review will follow, for sure! However, I did need a gentle face wash, a moisturiser, and an eye cream. Excuse me for the horrible quality, I did not turn the HDR option. Oops. I will do better next time. ~~~ Да си призная, никога не ми се е случвало…

  • How To Look Polished in 5 Minutes or Less

    With the upcoming holiday season come the parties, sleepless nights, and horrible headaches. Think about it – you had a late night and are peacefully sleeping only to be brutally woken up by your alarm in the morning. You hit snooze, turn around and realise that this was your 12th time of hitting snooze and you don’t have time. Should you sacrifice your looks? No, of course not. Trust me, less than 5 minutes are enough to look like you put some effort. ~~~ С наближаващите празниците идват и партитата, безсънните нощи и ужасното пулсиращо главоболие. Представете си го – стояли сте до късно предната вечер и си спите спокойно,…

  • MY QUICK&EASY MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE

    I enjoy having simple skincare routine. I do love my sleep and refuse to sacrifice it. Also, simple is good, right? My morning skincare usually consists of 4 products – cleanser, thermal water, moisturiser, and lipbalm. I need to up my game and add an eye cream because I may still be on the good side of 25, but I do smile a lot. My current favourite cleanser is the Cleansing Foam by Avène. I enjoy French skincare products, and I have fallen in love with Avène. However, my skin does get drier in the winter and I usually compensate the dryness from the facewash by using a rich moisturiser (such…
