Burberry The Beat

After very long time I have one really nice Burberry fragrance ( first one was Brit, of course ).  This one was a gift from my husband and great thing about that is not just that I got  a beautiful gift it is also that this is something I wouldn't choose myself and it is a fragrance that I really like. I usually reach for floral, oriental scents but time to time I find something that I like which is citrus and fresh. Burberry The Beat comes in lovely, elegant bottle with silver top and famous Burberry checked details on the bottle. I have 50 ml bottle, there are 30 and 75 ml available as well.

Top notes of Burberry The beat are pink pepper, mandarin orange, bergamot and cardamom. Middle notes are iris, tea and bellflower while the base notes are vetiver, cedar and white musk. I like to use Burberry The Beat when I'm going out with my husband or if I'm going to hang out with my friends. It is fresh and it is not overpowering but it is long lasting in the same time. To me it is the best for un formal occasions. Since I got it it is my go to fragrance and it is the reason why I think I should check out other Burberry perfumes as well. Who knows what I've been missing :)

Did you tried Burberry The Beat?

Random #11

Life has been very complicated past few weeks. In between everything that has happened lately it has been impossible to focus on my blog. I always say I want to go back to 3-4 posts per week but right now I hardly keep it alive. I'm not going to make any promise to you or to myself but hopefully things will get better soon. Hopefully I will be here more often and I hope life will turn in positive way again as well. 
Today I will share some pics with you. I done Project 365 vol 2 and now I can say that this time I don't miss it. However I still like to take few pictures here and there.

Five favorite fall lipsticks

Most of the time I call myself a pink girl. When it comes to lipsticks, lip gloss or nail polishes pink is usually my go to color and the color I have the most in my stash. During fall ( and winter ) I change it a little bit. Not that I don't use pink anymore but I often reach for other colors as well. Today let's talk about lipsticks. I looked forward to this fall because it is my favorite time of year to use purplicious shades. They are my favorite at this time of year. Except purple I like to wear red.

Here I have my five favorites. First I have two red shades. Oriflame Daring Red is my favorite red lipstick, the one I love to use when I dress up. It is a classic and always looks elegant. Next one is p2 Love Happens. This one is from Sheer Glam line and it is perfect for everyday looks. It is not too bold but it can make a statement. After reds here are my usual picks lately, purplicious lipsticks.  First one is L'oreal Glamor Fuchsia. Now this is another statement lipstick. When you have it on your lips you can't go unnoticed. You can do your makeup quickly and with Glamor Fuchsia on your lips it will look like you spend hours in front of a mirror. Next one is Golden Rose 113. This one can go as pink lipstick but it beautiful, unusual pink. I like to use it when I'm in pink mood and I want to wear bright lipstick Still, there is that hit of purple which makes me love it so much. Last one is Essence Wear Berries! which is really nice darker everyday color but it looks very good on evening makeup looks as well.

Oriflame Daring Red, p2 Love Happens, L'oreal Glamor Fuchsia, Golden Rose 113 and Essence Wear Berries!

In the end if I have to choose only one from my five favorites that would be L'oreal Glamor Fuchsia. J'adore it!

What is your favorite fall lipstick?

Review: Tangle Teezer

Ever since I've heard about it I knew Tangle Teezer could be something I need. Something that can help my long, dry hair which is impossible to brush without products in it. Sometimes they can hardly help, brushing can be difficult and even painful. Before I tried Tangle Teezer I expected it to be better then my usual, ordinary hair brush which has often been stuck in my hair. After I tried Tangle Teezer first thing that came into my mind was: Where have you been all my life? :) This brush is not just good or better then other " old fashion " brushes, it is excellent and it makes my life so much easier. Anyone with dry hair should know why would I said something like that.

Tangle Teezer has unusual shape, which became very normal because of popularity of the brush. It is easy to use it and time for adjustment to the brush was minimal. It is easy to hold it in your hand and like I said it does the work very well. There are different models of the brush, mine is Tangle Teezer Salon Elite.

Bristles on the brush are made of silicone and the key to success of the brush is in bigger and smaller bristles. For me this brush became irreplaceable ( well, I would replace it only with same or similar type of brush ) especially when my hair is wet. That is where I see the biggest difference. I can brush my hair without problem and without products ( silicone, oil...). I only wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner...and that's it.

Another fun thing about Tangle Teezer is that it comes in different colors and patterns. I love my purple and pink combo, it is called Purple Crush. This brush is also great for travel and it doesn't take much space if you want to carry it in your bag. It is easy to wash it and keep it clean.

In the end I can't say bad thing about this brush. I'm not saying it is perfect but after years of difficulties with brushing my tangled hair and searching for products that can help me with it, this brush finally does it the best. I just wish I bought it sooner :)

Empty #23

Olea Orchid & Cashmere liquid soap - random, emergency buy... I will stick to my usual Balea and Aveo soaps :)

Balea deo - body spray - As much as I love Balea products I can't say that I like their deos. I did tried few good ones but this one isn't among them. It looks nice but that's about it. I need to go back to Dove asap.

Schwarzkopf Got2Be Rockin' It dry shampoo - great product. After I use it my hair looks much better and it even gives it little bit of volume. I didn't see it in drugstores for a while but if I find it I will definitely buy it again.

Avon Planet Spa Japanese sake and rise body lotion - Nice smell, moisturizing, shimmery and practical package. Something I would buy again.

Catrice All Matt liquid foundation - click here :)

Figs & Rouge Vanilla & Pistachio lip butter - one of the best lip butter / balms I tried. It is nurturing, it doesn't dry out my lips and it doesn't have that sweet scent most balm have...which is great for a change. This was my only Figs & Rouge product but I hope I will try more.

Aveo liquid soap - love them and I use them regularly.

Essence Translucent powder - from Mountain Calling trend edition. This is really good product. On the budget but it is doing good work. I usually use it to set my foundation or my primer and it makes my makeup last longer. I will definitely repurchase it. ( Essence has the same product with different name in their regular range. )

Balea Sail Away cream - The package is irresistible and the cream inside is good. Great thing about it is that it can be used for your face, body or your hands. So it is completely easy to justify if you buy it, I have other packages as well and if Balea continues with these little creams I will probably buy every single one :) I used this one mostly for my face or my hands.
