Empty #21

Balea Battle Field shower gel - from Balea Young line, which is unfortunately discontinued. They always had great scents and shower gels in cute package.

Lush So White shower gel - great product, you can find more here.

Ebelin sponge nail polish remover - my favorite way to remove nail polish is with sponge removers, this one is very good. 

Dove Beauty Finish deo roll on - nice scent, easy to use and refreshing...

L'Oreal Elvital oil - nice hair product but honestly I don't have a lot to say about it. I always used it time to time so I can't really tell you if it helped my hair or not. I doubt I will buy it again.

Rebecca Bon Bon fragrance - nice everyday fragrance.

Ebelin cotton pads - my favorite.

Lush Snow Globe and Lush Angel's Delight soaps - two beautiful soaps, I used them in the shower at first but in the end I decided it it time to use them up and decided to wash my hand with them. It was quicker but they lasted a long time. I love them both, to find out more click here.

Rimmel Coralicious

Today's mani is Rimmel Coralicious. One of my new nail polishes. I got it as a gift with my latest buy on . It was a nice surprise and it gets better when I actually love what I got. When I looked it in the bottle I thought it is just another coral /orange but when I applied it on my nails I fell in love with it. Coralicious is one of those gorgeous red corals that I adore. True summer color.
The bottle contains 8 ml of product, it applies easily and dries quickly. I applied 2 coats.

China Glaze Boho Blues

As soon as I saw China Glaze Road Trip press photos Boho Blues caught my attention. This gorgeous blue cream is right in between from pastel and bright color. It is such a beautiful color for summer, it looks great alone but I really want to see how it works with other colors and I will use it in nail art as well. Application was nice and easy, 2 coats were enough for full opacity.

Catrice liquid foundation: All Matt Plus, Nude Illusion and Velvet Finish

Catrice is one of my favorite brands when it comes to liquid foundations. Revlon Colorstay remains my all time favorite but I'm in constant search for good liquid foundation for everyday use. Catrice is often my first pick because it is affordable and great quality. At the moment I have few foundations from Catrice and this is good time to share my thoughts with you. I bought Nude Illusion and Velvet Finish because I loved All Matt Plus and I wanted to check out these as well. I was confident enough that even if I think they are not perfect they will be at least good. 
( My skin is dry / normal. )

I'm going to start with All Matt Plus. All Matt Plus is new version of old favorite Infinite Matt. I was so happy when I saw that Catrice is coming out with this one because it is truly great product, worth trying. All Matt Plus has nice coverage, matte finish and it applies and blends easily. My favorite way to apply it is with foundation brush. I'm also very satisfy with durability, because it lasts whole day on my face. I have All Matt Plus in Nude Beige and after I use up this bottle I will buy lighter shade because I think it will be better for my skin tone. I bought this one without trying, because I used shade 2 when I was using Infinite Matt but it is little bit darker then my skin especially comparing with my neck. Good thing is that it will be very useful this summer when I need one shade darker foundation then usual.

Nude Illusion is one of new Catrice foundations and as soon as I saw it I knew this is something I want to try. This time I went for the lighter shade Nude Ivory and it is a good choice for me. Nude Illusion has soft-focus effect but if you don't have major skin problems the coverage is pretty good. For me it is good enough, only area I need some help is under my eyes. Nude Illusion lasts whole day on my face, it applies and blends easily. I get the best result when I apply it with foundation brush. The finish of Nude Illusion is supposed to be natural but on my face it looks pretty dusty and sometimes it looks a bit heavy. I don't know why is that, I will probably use up this bottle but after that I will not buy this product again.

The last one, Velvet Finish is my favorite, Since I tried it it is my first pick. I bought the lighter color, Light Velvet and it suits me perfectly. Good coverage, most of the time it is only thing on my face. On good days I don't even use concealer. It is easy to apply and I prefer to apply it with my fingers, that way it looks best. The finish is matte and it looks natural on my face. The only problem with Velvet Finish is that it isn't available everywhere. So after I use up this bottle I hope I will find it somewhere, because I only saw it in Germany.

Package of Catrice foundation is glass but there is no fear it will broke. Each bottle has a pump which makes it easy to dose, one pump is enough to cover my face. If I want to build it up I add little bit more. Overall Catrice foundations are great products. Great quality for affordable price. 
Did you tried Catrice foundations? Which one is your favorite?

The Vampire Diaries and The originals - the end of season

The Vampire Diaries

I'm little bit behind with my TV show mini reviews but don't think I forgot about them :)))). So, The Vampire Diaries. Once my favorite show and now...well. Let's just say I will be happy if next season is the last because this is only a shadow of The Vampire Diaries on the beginning. How many times every single character can die and come back to life? I have a feeling that only plot we have is to kill off somebody and then find a way to bring them back to life. With all that, Nina Dobrev left the show and I can't see how will they continue without her...Damon and Elena story line was something that was going on since the beginning and it was fan favorite...So, hopefully they have something good for next season and then bye, bye!

The Originals

The Originals have similar problem as TVD, their characters jump from body to body all the time. Once or twice can be interesting but when you do it all the time it becomes predictable. If they finally stop doing that the show could be better because the plot is interesting. However, I think one more season of the Originals will be enough and they should end it.

What do you think?

Summer fashion trends for 2015

First day of summer is just around the corner but here in Croatia we already have summer weather and that makes me really happy. My favorite part of the year. Reasons why I love summer so much are pretty obvious ( I like to think so ). Fist of all it is warm, I can spend a lot of time outside and it is usual time for me to go on vacation. There is also fashion. I do love coats, boots and sweaters but there is nothing like denim shorts or summer dress. Those two are my favorite clothing items. I hope this summer will be hot and there will be plenty of time to wear everyday romantic dresses. Romantic, hippie, army retro are among others trends for summer 2015. I always like to look at what is new,go around my favorite websites and stores and adjust trends the way I like them.
This summer there is a lot of white, especially in combination with lace and bare skin which I love. Also, black and white. When it comes to actual colors there is mostly khaki and navy.  As for the clothing items beside the dress, there are jumpsuits, suits, one shoulder and kimono. I've seen a lot of fringes and black fringes bag is something I want for so long :)

One of biggest trends for this summer is denim. Denim made come back few years ago and it looks like it will stay with us for a while. Shirts, shorts, dresses or skirts. Together or alone. I prefer combine denim with some other color and material and I already have a shirt in my closet. Also, one of my favorite new items is denim dress with lace detail. I love it because it is casual but with right accessories it can be transformed into party outfit.

Another big trend for the summer 2015 are graphics. Gingham pattern is definitely everywhere as well as other graphics designs. Some are simple as polka dots and stripes and somewhere you can see interesting floral patterns.

With everything said we all now that is most important to find something you feel good about and something that suits you. I will definitely be in look out for dresses because I have two weddings to go to. I'm hoping for something colorful and elegant. I think that it is also important to be event appropriate but true to yourself. So it doesn't matter if it is everyday clothing, for wedding, quinceanera or prom, if blue quinceanera dresses ( plenty on Sweetquinceaneradress ) is what you want you should go for it.

What is your favorite summer clothing item? Do you like trends?
