31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Green

Here is my mani for day 4 of 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. It is very simple but I love the end result so this is something I will definitely repeat with other colors. Task for day 4 was color green so I used four green nail polishes. I started with one of my favorite - mint green and then applied darker colors and glitter on my ring finger!

I used: Essence Iced Mint Frappe, Basic Beauty number 65, Essence Back To Paradise and Catrice Glitterama.

Project 365 ( 364 - 365 )

Week 53...

Day 364: Show your support!

Day 365: Cherries...the end...

That's it! My Project 365 is finished. I can't believe it has gone so quickly. I enjoyed most part of Project 365. It was fun to take all the photos for the challenge but then again it was hard to find inspiration at times. There would be days when I had 5-6 photos for the day and some days when I had barely one. I'm happy I made a hole year with it and I will probably continue to take pictures just not every day but I will probably post the ones that I really like in some random posts. It was interesting year, full of change for me. Biggest changes in my life were during this period. First I started started with our moving plans with my boyfriend, then we really moved and meanwhile I got married and got pregnant. Now all is left to count days until baby comes :) So, this is it with my 365 photo challenge...nice experience and interesting year behind me. Hope you enjoyed it like I did!

Avon Naturals face creams

Long time ago I tried Avon Naturals face cream and I liked it so few months ago I saw a good deal for Naturals Rose line and I decided to get it. I was so happy with the cream so now I got a little stash. I like these products so I'm sure that I will finish them soon and this time I have no guilt about buying too many products because these are one of those basic product you always need to have around. I have dry to normal skin without major problems so these face creams are really good for me and I like to use them.

Avon Naturals Rose

Like I said I have more products from the line ( cleanser and eye cream )  but my favorite product is definitely this face cream. In a few days it will be gone and I wouldn't be surprised if I buy it again in the future. For now I obviously don't need it. The cream smells beautiful, for a while I was little bit obsessed with this scent and often I would stuck my nose in it :D The color is light pink with fine, micro glitter that is almost invisible on the skin. ( Usually you don't see it but there are times when light hits it that you do see something .) It is easy to apply it and it sinks in quickly. After I apply it my skin is smooth and soft. I use it before I apply makeup, before I go to bed, to remove my great every time.

Avon Naturals Tea Tree And Cucumber

Avon has this Tea Tree And Cucumber line since I can remember. Finally I decided to try it. I planed to order only the face cream but there was a good deal for two more products from the line ( peel off  face mask and 2 in 1 cleanser and toner ) so I got them too but I still need to test it a little bit better so I can say more about it. This face cream smells really it says on the label purifying would be perfect description to me. If you like smell of wood or fresh grass you will love this one too. It is not my favorite but I don't have a problem with it. This one also makes my skin soft and applies smoothly. It soaks into my skin almost immediately after I apply it. Like the previous cream it can be usable in different ways, I usually apply it in the morning or before applying makeup.

Avon Naturals Carrot And Sunflower

This one reminds me a lot to the first cream here - Rose. When you look at the texture only color is different but everything else is pretty much the same. There is also fine glitter in it that is later invisible, application is easy and creams soaks in quickly. When it comes to smell Carrot And Sunflower is my least favorite but I don't have a problem with the smell when I apply it on my face.

Avon Naturals Milk And Honey

Now this one is probably my favorite ( if we exclude Rose ) because of the way it smells. Sometimes I find honey scent too strong but this is just perfect! Texture of the cream is light and it applies easily, soaks in quickly and makes my skin soft. Love it!!

Avon Naturals Green Olive

The last cream I have here is Green Olive. With texture it is a lot like Tea Tree And Cucumber and also when I apply it it sinks into my skin almost immediately. Long time ago I used Planet Spa Olive Oil products and if I remember correctly this cream smells exactly like that. However it is a nice smell that I like very much. Like all the other creams I talked about I use it mostly before applying makeup or before I go to sleep. I also tried to remove makeup with it and it works very well.

After I tested all the creams I will probably use one by one. My favorite way of using products. After I finish them all I will probably repurchase some of them because they are really good. If you don't have major skin problems and all you need is to be soft and moisturized these creams are nice product to try. It is also good to mention that they are not greasy.  I definitely don't regret buying four creams at once!

The end of season: Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Revenge, Hart Of Dixie, Glee and Chicago Fire


I will start my recap with Grey's Anatomy. The main thing about season 10 is Christina leaving. Overall it was a good season, not as good as the last one but I still enjoy this show. Even after all these years. So many characters has gone trough the show so every season I wonder if they are still going to be good because show without original characters quickly goes downhill. There are so many new characters in Grey's Anatomy and only few originals but still they keep it on point and they are interesting to watch. This season one of those originals and one of my all time favorite characters is gone. I am very sad about that but I'm so happy with how they handled her leaving. Even though she will be missed we know her story. Christina got a lot attention this season and her story is truly fulfilled. All the question are answered and her character has gone full circle. My first thought when I heard that Sandra Oh was leaving was...please don't kill her...because after all this is Grey's Anatomy :) Fortunately they didn't go that way. Also great thing about Grey's Anatomy that is now history is Christina and Meredith friendship! The best TV friendship ever! As for the other things about the show...well, it is still one of my favorite shows and that is telling something...but to me most important thing about it season 10 is like I said Christina!

Scandal is another show from creator of Grey's Anatomy Shonda Rhimes. Then you know there is a lot of drama and this is another show that I enjoyed. It is crazy a bit. Characters can sometimes be extreme and at times everything can remind you on a soap opera but still there is something that keeps me watching. I like all the White House intrigue. Season 3 wasn't as good as season 2 but they were still dramatic with plot that is going quickly. 

I was so happy when Revenge season 3 ended. I loved this show in season 1 and I was still into it in season 2 but now it is just one hot mess. The season was nothing special but they ruined everything with the end. It would be so much better if season 3 was the last one because they are obviously out of good ideas at most times it feels like I'm watching telenovela..I still love Emily and Nolan but not even they can get me excited about Revenge any more.

Hart Of Dixie is still sweet and relaxing show. Characters are enjoyable and there is something about it when you can let your brain rest when you watch it. Even the characters that I didn't like at first ( Lemon and George ) are now interesting. There are some rumors that next season could be the last one and surprisingly I'm glad about it. Just enough to get Zoe and Wade together again!

Glee had many changes last season when most of original cast graduated. Part of the cast moved to New York and part of cast was still in Lima in Glee club. In second part of season the hole show was about New York and that was a good move. Lima part wasn't interesting any more and I'm glad they got rid of that. Next season is the last one and I think that is a good thing. Glee lost their main sparkle after season 1 and 6 seasons is more then enough for this show. 
I also have to mention Cory Monteith. After his sudden death last summer they dedicated two episodes to him and it was perfect goodbye to Cory and Finn.

After 2 seasons of Chicago Fire is still have mixed feelings about this show. Sometimes I really like it and sometimes I find it boring. I still watch it but I'm not sure for how long because it seams to me that Chicago Fire will have a long run. There is also a spin off of this show with Chicago P.D. and there are many crossovers between the shows. Since I don't watch the other show I do miss some events. However I will definitely watch the start of season 3 because they left really good cliffhanger.

Do you watch any of these shows? How did you liked them?

Body & Soul makeup brushes

Body & Soul brushes can be found in Muller drugstores. For now I have three but since I love the ones that I have it wouldn't be surprise if I got more eventually. I have blush, concealer and eyeshadow brush. All of them have black, hard plastic helve and they are easy to work with.

Blush brush has slantwise cut and it is pretty dense. It is not too soft and it is easy to apply blush with it. It is not my favorite brush for blending but it does the work very well.

Concealer brush is the next one. It is my favorite from the bunch, I use it every day. It is easy to apply and blend concealer with it. I also love the size, perfect for application Catrice Camouflage Cream concealer ( this is concealer I use right now and reason why I bought this brush in first place ).

Eyeshadow brush is last one here and first one that I bought. Good size, it is soft and dense and great for applying eyeshadow.

Did you tried Body & Soul brushes? How do you like them?
