“I got new STUFF” haul

hotHello, my darlings! How are you? Finally, here in Latvia, we got a real winter (with snow, ice and -20 C*).That means shopping for warm clothes and skin care stuff(because my skin is acting up in this weather).And today I want to talk about the skincare/makeup I got recently. Almost all of them I have tried those few days,so Let’s start!

 

Makeup

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Maybelline Dream Matte bb with salicylic acid

in the colour 03 light

It was my first time seeing it in a new design. I like it more than the original one FOR SURE. The colour match is okay for me, not perfect, but at the same time, not the worst( I think it’s the same exact colour as the light/medium was).Overall I’m happy with this product.

essence Camouflage full coverage concealer

When I was browsing our local drugstore essence stand I found this pretty cool concealer that I have never seen before. The price was great (a little under 3 euro) so I got it in the colour 10 nude (sadly the 05 was sold out).It has a pinkish undertone, covers undereye circles and small imperfections pretty well. Stays on all day. The colour match is much better than most “light” drugstore concealers(on my skin). I really like it.

 

SkinCare

Beauty Formulas charcoal clay mask

I haven’t tried anything from this brand, so this is my first product from them.This mask smells really good. I like the consistency and I feel like it does help with the oiliness and imperfections of my skin. It was cheap(under 2 euros with my discount card).Really happy and glad that I got it!

Body/Haircare

Green Pharmacy Shower Gel with strawberries and mint

You know the smell of wild strawberries that you can find just in the forest?Well, this smells exactly like that and I love it!

 Syoss Full Hair 5 Extra Strong Hold Fullness & Volume Hair Mousse 250ml

With my new haircut, a hair mousse is a must! Right now I have love/hate relationship with this one, but I just started using it so maybe in the future I will change my mind.

 

Tell me in the comments, What is the last makeup/skincare thing you got?Did you like it?

My mini Book Haul!

tenor (9)Hello, my darlings!Today I want to talk about all the books I got these past months(don’t worry I didn’t get much). I had the worst reading slump(and just overall inspiration to do anything was very low)  in the last 3 months, but now I’m back, reading and reviewing and just feeling happy and healthy!So I got some books as a Christmas gift and some I just got myself.Let’s start with the one I’m reading right now(everything else is still unread).

The Dracula Dossier

by James Reese

About the book ; Author of the New York Times bestseller The Book of Shadows, James Reese returns with a remarkable feat of literary invention. In The Dracula Dossier, Reese combines real historical figures and events—Bram Stoker, Walt Whitman, Jack the Ripper—with glorious speculation in a tour de force of suspense fiction that races non-stop through Victorian London. Bestselling author Michael Connelly raves about The Dracula Dossier, calling it, “a damn good thriller…that had me mesmerized from chapter one.”

Big Miracle

by Tom Rose

About the book ; Now a major motion picture starring Drew Barrymore, Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Tim Blake Nelson, John Krasinski, and Vinessa Shaw—an account of the dramatic rescue of three gray whales trapped under the ice in Alaska in 1988.
Set in Cold War–era 1988, Big Miracle tells the real story behind the remarkable, bizarre, and oftentimes uproarious event that mesmerized the world for weeks. On October 7, an Inuit hunter near Barrow, Alaska, found three California Gray whales imprisoned in the Arctic ice. In the past, as was nature’s way, trapped whales always died. Not this time. Tom Rose, who was covering the event for a Japanese TV station, compellingly describes how oil company executives, environmental activists, Inupiat people, small business people, and the U.S. military boldly worked together to rescue the whales. He also tells the stories of some of the more than 150 international journalists who brought the story to the world’s attention. The rescue was followed by millions of people around the world as Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev joined the forces of their two nations to help free the whales.

The White Princess (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels #5) by Philippa Gregory

About the book ;When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for nearly two decades.But his bride is still in love with his slain enemy, Richard III—and her mother and half of England dream of a missing heir, sent into the unknown by the White Queen. While the new monarchy can win power, it cannot win hearts in an England that plots for the triumphant return of the House of York.Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to invade and reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king leads his army and invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her beloved lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

Stone Maples

by Lena Eltang

About the book ; A detective story that takes place in a fiction small town in Wales.The mysteries of the witchy pension, the cool breeze of the Irish Bay, the Welsh ancient legends, the love story ranging from passion to hate, a mysterious death, which probably was not at all…It is the book of mind-lace, whose heroes change masks and mix their feet so masterly that discovering the secrets of the past for them is as important as understanding the present meaning.

A New Cookbook (Latvian culinary heritage)

About the book ; This one is a pretty cool little book with old recipes(from 1935)that were originally in one of that time cookbooks…And It’s all written in this old Latvian(and I love it)

Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy review

 

giphy (4)Hello, world!Today I want to talk about amazing “set” that I got for Chrismas from one of my dear friends.I have used all of those products religiously for a month and here are my honest thoughts on them.If you don’t know ,I do dye my hair a dark brown colour every month  (so..you can guess my hair is a little damaged ) .Let’s start!

About the product: Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy Shampoo provides visibly improved hair quality. The formula with omegaplex reconstructs damaged compounds in the hair fibers to strengthen the inner hair structure. The hair fiber is protected against future damage by heat-styling or colouring for a long time.

3-5-stars

3,8/5 stars

My Thoughts: My favourite product in this “set”.I just love how my hair feels and looks after I use this.I did use it right after I dyed my hair and my hair felt alive and smelled nice (and that’s a big thing because my hair dye smells awful).Overall a great leave-in product if you have overprocessed hair.

Overall Impressions 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

I liked it!All the products smell like caramel (Yummy), are very hydrating and really do what they claim to do.Hair feels smooth and healthy.But I felt like using just those products left my hair get oily faster(but that’s kind of expected from those kinds of products for very damaged hair).Overall would recommend you to give it a try if you bleach ,dye or use a lot of heath on your hair.

Hello, my darlings!It’s the end of January, the first month of 2018.Where does the time go?! January was a really chill month for me, lots of quality time with my brother watching Get smart (it was still celebration season in our household)so you can imagine how much food I had eaten, and I’m already failing my new year’s resolutions…Who’s with me on this?(But I do try to get better).But we are not here to talk about me failing, but about my January favourites…Let’s start with that!

Beauty Favourites!

Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy

This was a Christmas gift from my lovely friend Alina, and I totally love this. I have used this “set” for a month straight…and my hair is very thankful. It feels smooth and healthy, give it a try if you have very overprocessed hair and need to make it more alive.

FAVORITE TV SHOW

FAVORITE BOOK

The Alien Prince: Kovos (Clans of the Ennoi #2)

38091911

As the heat between them grows, so does the threat of war. 
Prince Kovos of the Ennoi knows a loveless, but politically advantageous marriage will end the decades of bloodshed his people have endured. Kovos’s plans for peace go awry when a human woman interrupts his betrothal ceremony – by declaring she’s already his Bonded mate! At the sight of her enticing beauty, logic leaves Kovos. He can’t focus on petty diplomacy or his boring duties when all he wants to do is claim what is his. 
Years ago, Kovos saved nine-year-old Jenna Harlock from human trafficking mercenaries. By re-entering his life, she jeopardizes his fragile peace accord. Despite her fear of aliens, Jenna’s childhood crush blooms into something she ran from her whole life: love. But she can’t give her heart to Kovos. His enemies have her sister. If Jenna doesn’t assassinate the prince, her sister dies. 
Jenna has to trust her alien prince if they are to have any hope of unraveling the sinister plot threatening everything Kovos has built. If they fail, they will lose more than just their happiness – they’ll lose their lives
