YAY OR NAY? | Tangle teezer


I think it was back when I started watching youtubers when I first saw what a Tangle Teezer looked like. I remember it was in one of Zoella's videos and I thought it was a great idea - and then I remember myself looking for one online and seeing the price and saying 'meh, maybe it's not that cool'.

When I thought I had forgotten about them, Gabriella posted a video in which she talked about them and how it helped her long hair. I recall reading posts about them and watching more videos so I decided that maybe some day I'd buy one.

REVIEW | Love, Tanya


[THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS]

I'm not lying when I say that Tanya Burr got me into blogging about beauty. I was - and still am - obsessed with all her videos and looks, her style and the bubbly personality she shows on camera. It also led me to Zoella, who of course I also like very much although I miss her tutorials and beauty vlogs / blogs every now and then. 

When I knew Tanya was releasing a book - I remember her saying it in a video - I thought it was going to be a great thing. In my opinion, when someone is passionate at what they do, they do it well and I think that's the case of Tanya. She loves what she does and she has worked so hard for it that it is paying off. Not only her beauty range is a success, but so are her videos and now I hope her book also becomes a great success.

I'm not saying this just because I really like her as a blogger, but because I mean it. For example when I bought It by Alexa Chung and although it was a nice book to spend some time with, it did not inspire me as much. However, I love how inspiring Love, Tanya can be.

THIS GIRL CAN | Find your motivation


It's been a while since it occurred to me that trying to be healthy and get fit is a new trend. You can even see it in your favourite shops when they start selling fitness clothes too! All my friends always talk about how they go running every now and then, or they go for power walks and I see more and more people moving more.

I've been a yo-yo when it comes to my health & fitness. Two summers ago I joined a gym and the first month I saw improvements, but then I started having 'cheat days' and stopped going to the gym that often and... eventually I spent so much money for a membership that I barely used. I wasn't motivated and I guess that my gym buddy wasn't the best either (sorry if you're reading me, but you know it's true!)

Going nude | MAC Viva Glam VI


Hello everyone!

I hope you guys have had a wonderful time with your loved ones. I have been travelling, hence my lack of posts but I promised I would be back and here I am, back in England!
On my birthday (January 9th) my parents spoiled me so much. Even though I did not really want to buy anything in particular, they decided they would buy me a Mac lipstick of my choice (because, of course, it is hard for them to choose one for me). I wanted to go out of my comfort zone and I decided to get a nude lipstick. Right now I have three Mac lipsticks and two of them have very bold colours (Impassioned and Rebel) so I thought it would be a very good idea to get a nude lipstick that I could wear everyday.
