MOTD #82 – Saturday Smokey

Hello loves & Happy International Women’s Day! In Estonia it’s a very celebrated day, my dad and brothers always brought flowers to my mom and at school the teacher gave flowers to the boys to give us :) Which is really cute now that I think back at it and a nice way to show little boys to be nice to girls. That was actually the only day in the year they were nice to us lol.

Ciao tesori & Buona Festa delle Donne! In Estonia è un giorno molto festeggiato, mio padre e i fratelli portavano sempre fiori alla mamma e a scuola l’insegnante dava i fiori ai ragazzi da regalarci :) Il che è molto carino pensarci ora e un bel modo di insegnare ai maschietti di essere carini con le ragazze. Anche se era più o meno l’unico giorno all’anno che erano carini con noi ahhhaaahh.

Anyway, I created this look on Saturday. I don’t do smokey eye looks too often, but I was really craving it and loved the result. On the eyes I only used one eyeshadow palette and I think it’s my new favorite!

Comunque, ho creato questo look sabato. Di solito non faccio il smokey eye molto spesso ma questa volta avevo proprio voglia e sono felice di come è uscito. Sugli occhi ho usato solo una palette di ombretti e penso che sia la mia nuova preferita!

essence camouflage cream concealer

flormar mat touch foundation M306 + Velnea BB cream Light

Golden Rose Silky Touch Compact Powder

KIKO Cool Muave Contouring palette

I used all the eyeshadows from the middle section of the Pro Looks Palette: Naked Nights on the lid, Get Loose in the crease, Super Cool under my eyes, Strip Me on the browbone & Let Loose in the inner corners.

Ho usato tutti i colori della sezione in mezzo nella Pro Looks Palette: Naked Nights sulla palpebra mobile, Get Loose nella piega, Super Cool sotto gli occhi, Strip Me sotto l’arcata della sopracciglia & Let Loose negli angoli interni.

I hope you enjoyed this look, let me know your thoughts. I hope you all have a beautiful Women’s Day. Let me know in the comments if you celebrate the Women’s Day & your favorite memory of it :)

Spero vi è piaciuto questo look, fatemi sapere cosa ne pensate. Vi auguro a tutte una bellissima giornata di Festa delle Donne! Fatemi sapere nei commenti se festeggiate questo giorno e il vostro ricordo preferito a riguardo :)

Empties #23

Hello darlings! It’s time to see my latest empties, so let’s go.

Hola tesori! Un’altra volta è ora di vedere i miei ultimi prodotti finiti, andiamo.

img_1575

Velnea Beauty Oil Shampoo

With Macadamia nut oil and weheat protein for split ends & thatch hair. This shampoo has been in my monthly favorites, it has been great for my dry hair and scalp.

Con olio di noce di Macadamia e proteine del grano per le doppie punte e capelli di paglia. Questo shampoo è stato anche nei miei preferiti, èper i miei capelli e cuoio capelluto secco è stato ottimo.

Velnea Intensive Body Mil with Shea butter

So glad I finally finished this. Too thick and hard to blend for my taste.

Sono felice di averlo finalmente terminato. Troppo denso e difficile da spalmare per i miei gusti.

bioten Miscellar water 3-in-1 cleansing

I think it’s the third one I’ve gone through, so obviously I’m more than happy with it :)

Penso che sia già il terzo che finisco, quindi ovviamente sono molto soddisfatta di questo prodotto.

img_1577
essence stay natural concealer

Great under eye concealer, not too covering but more than the stay-all-day concealer. Creamy and lightweight. Definitely love and recommend this one.

Un buon correttore per l’area sotto occhi, non troppo coprente ma meglio del stay-all-day correttore. Cremoso e leggero, mi piace molto e lo consiglio decisamente.
Revlon Colorstay foundation for Normal/Dry skin

Before buying this I went online to see which were the best affordable drugstore foundations and this came up a lot. For me it wasn’t as covering as I’d like and it was also too runny. I mixed it with another foundation to get it a little thicker, I won’t be buying this again.

Prima di comprare questo ho cercato su internet quali erano i migliori fondotinta a basso costo e di questo ne parlavano sempre. Per me non era abbastanza coprente ed era anche troppo liquido. L’ho mescolavo con un altro fondotinta per farlo pià denso, non lo comprerò più.

flormar Mat touch foundation

I have a review on this foundation. But I must say that after the review I started liking it less and less. It never blended nicely and looked cakey.

Ho fatto una recensione piuttosto positiva su questo fondotinta ma devo dire che dopo la recensione è cominciato a piacermi sempre meno. Non riuscivo ad applicarlo in modo uniforme e si vedeva troppo di avere il fondotinta.

Makeup Sponge – Spugnetta per trucco

I get these cheap sponges from a local Chinese store, they last a long time for the small price and I can have many at once to change up after every use.

Compro queste spugne economiche nel negozio di cinesi vicino a me, durano bene per il prezzo che hanno e posso averne tante a disposizione per cambiarli dopo ogni uso.

img_1578
Aura power lashes 12 Disco Mania

You can see them in this post. I think I got about 3-4 uses out of them, which is ok for the small price. I also used up the 03 Shaggy Dream lashes, but I already threw away the box. They lasted the same amount and you can see them here.

Puoi vederle in questo post. Sono riuscita ad usarle 3-4 volte che non è male per il prezzo economico. Ho terminato anche 03 Shaggy Dream ma avevo già buttato la scatoletta. Sono durate uguale e le puoi vedere qui.

essence lash & brow gel mascara

Review here. Love this, it’s an absolute must have!

Recensione qui. Lo adoro, è assolutamente un must have.

Fing’rs Precision Lash Adhesive

Review here. Awesome lash glue, I need to buy another one asap.

Recensione qui. Ottima colla per ciglia finte, devo comprarne un altro il più presto.

img_1579

alverde deo roll-on with bergamot mint

I wanted to try a more natural deodorant for when I was breastfeeding. I am not sure about how good of a deodorant it was but it must be a great mosquito repellent cause it smells like those anti-mosquito citrus candles :D Yeah, not buying this again.

Volevo un deodorante più naturale per quando allattavo. Non so dire dei suoi poteri da deodorante ma deve essere un ottimo repellente per zanzare perchè esattamente come quelle candele anti-zanzare :D Non lo comprerò più di sicuro.

Balea deodorant with Hibiscus flower

A decent deodorant with a very nice sweet scent. I’ll definitely try others from this line.

Un deodorante decente con un profumo piacevole e molto dolce. Proverò sicuramente anche altri da questa linea.

essence lipliner 06 satin muave

Forgot to add this to the photos, but it’s my most used lip pencil. You can see how it looks on here.

Ho dimenticato di fotografarla ma è la mia matita labbra più usata in assoluto. Potete vedere come sta indossato qui.

6 Month Baby & Postpartum Update

Hiiii! Here we are, half year has passed already! In a blink of an eye he won’t be a baby anymore 😥

Ciaooo! Eccoci qua, mezzo anno é giá passati! In un battibaleno non sarà piú un bebé 😥

Since he does have atopic dermatitis the pediatric told me to take it slow with the food cause he is more prone to allergies but I just can’t! Of course I don’t want to harm my baby, but he is so keen to eat everything and is doing so well so well. As a mommy of three, I’ll continue to stick to my intuition.

La pediatra mi ha detto di fare con calma con le pappe visto che ha la dermatite atopica quindi é piú a rischio di allergie. Ma io non ce la faccio, ovvio che non voglio fare del male al mio bimbo ma vuole mangiare di tutto, impazzisce! Sta andando benissimo con tutte le pappe e come mamma di tre continueró a fidare del mio intuito.

At 5 months he got he’s first teeth and few days later there was also a second bottom tooth! He’s still drooling and biting like crazy so I’m expecting more to pop out. My first born had 8 teeth by 8 months, so I wouldn’t be surprised…

A 5 mesi ha messo il primo dentino e dopo qualche giorno ne é spuntato  l’altro dentino di sotto! Sta ancora sbavando e mordendo da matti quindi mi aspetto qualche altro dentino. Il mio primo aveva 8 denti a 8 mesi quindi non sarei sorpresa…

As far as for me I’m doing well. I’ve managed to lose a good amount of weight the past two months. I still have around 7kg to go but I’m definitely starting to look decent again and feel comfortable in my skin again 😊

Per quanto riguarda me, sto bene. Sono riuscita a perdere un bel po’ di peso negli ultimi due mesi. Ho ancora ca 7kg da perdere ma sto cominciando ad essere decente e mi sento piú a mio agio con me stessa 😊

Of course he still adores he’s big brothers who make him laugh so hard! And cry when they leave the room. He’s such a happy and friendly baby, he loves to “chat” with anyone and smiles to everyone. When he got his shots, he cried for two seconds and then kept smiling to the doctor 😀

Ovviamente adora ancora i suoi fratelloni che lo fanno ridere come un matto! Ma anche piangere se osano lasciare la stanza. Ma é un bambino cosí solare e socievole, gli piace “chiacchierare” con chiunque e sorride a tutti. Con ultimo vaccino ha pianto due secondi e poi ha continuato a sorridere alla dottoressa 😀


That’s all for now. Talk to you soon!

Per ora è tutto, a presto!

Valentine’s Day Makeup 2017

Hey darlings, I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day, but today’s Friday and that’s even better ;) Anyway I wanted to share my Vday makeup here, I posted it on my beauty instagram on the actual day. Initially I wasn’t planning to do any looks, but I thought I should do atleast something. At first I wanted to draw hearts like tears, then I wanted little hearts under my eyes, but I’m terrible at this kind of stuff so it sucked and I settled for a few hearts on my shoulder. I hope you enjoy :*

Ciao care, spero avete passato un bel San Valentino ma oggi è venerdì e questo è ancora meglio :) Comunque, volevo postare il mio look di San Valentino anche qui, l’ho postato sul mio beauty instagram nel giorno San Valentino. A dire il pensavo di non fare nulla per questa festa  ma poi ho detto che devo fare almeno qualcosina. All’inizio volevo disegnare dei cuoricini come delle lacrime, poi volevo farli in colonna sotto gli occhi ma faccio schifo in ‘ste cose perciò ci ho rinunciato e mi sono accontentata di qualche cure sulla spalla. Spero vi piace :*

Ignore my hand that I used to try out different eyeliners to use for the hearts

Buon weekend tesori!

Makeup Look – Orange Fever

So the other day I was inspired to do something colorful and this orange monochrome look was born. This look makes me so happy, it’s so sunny and calls for spring <3 I hope you enjoy.

L’altro giorno ero ispirata a fare qualcosa di colorato e così è nato questo look arancione monocromatico. Questo look mi rende felice, è così solare e chiama la primavera <3 Spero vi piaccia.

20170210_123435_hdr 20170210_123357_hdr

The beautiful orange on my lids and lips is “Mars” from bh cosmetics Galaxy Chic palette. In the crease and under my eyes I used my beloved New-Trals vs Neutrals from Makeup Revolution.

MOTD #79 – Darker Than Most Days

Hey loves, hope everyone is doing well! Today I’m sharing this simple yet strong look. I don’t often wear darker lipsticks, but I was actually courageous enough to out with this look during daytime….with my kids. People in the park were probably like: What the fuck!? :D

Ciao carissime, spero state tutte bene! Oggi vi mostro un look semplice ma forte. Non indosso rossetti scuri molto spesso come sapete ma questa volta sono stata così coraggiosa da uscire di giorno con questo trucco…con i miei figli. Le persone al parco avranno pensato: Ma che cavolo!? :D

20170209_132634_hdr

On my eyes I used New-Trals vs Neutrals palette by Makeup Revolution and on my lips I have Absolute Matte Lip Cream 625 Break the Rules by Aura kozmetica.

Sugli occhi ho usato la palette New-Trals vs Neutrals della Makeup Revolution e sulle labbra ho Absolute Matte Lip Cream 625 Break the Rules della Aura kozmetica.

20170209_132611_hdr

On the pictures I only one layer of the liquid lipstick, it looked a little patchy so before I went out I added another layer and it was better that way. I have 5 of these lipsticks and the two darker shades are really hard to get on evenly. At first I was really disappointed but I tried a few times and got better at applying them so they look somewhat decent on.

Sulle foto ho solo uno strato di rossetto liquido, sembrava un po’ a macchie, così prima di uscire ho messo un altro strato ed era meglio. Ho 5 di questi rossetti e le due tonalità più scure sono difficily da applicare nel modo uniforme. All’inizio ero molto delusa ma ho provato ancora qualche volta e sono migliorata, ora riesco farli sembrare più o meno decenti.

Have a good start to your week :*

Buon inizio settiamana care :*

Let’s talk about Aquarius

The colorful parrots of the zodiac :) It’s been way too long since my last astrology post, a dear friend reminded me! These posts take time and focus which has been hard to come by since I got pregnant last year. Anyway, let me remind you that I am not an astrologer and these posts are not classical zodiac posts. These posts are about how I see the signs, what experiences I have had with them. I write them so you can maybe have a different point of view of the signs :)

When I was thinking about which sign to write about and what, the first  thing that came to my mind for Aquarius was sunshine! They are very sunny, happy, pleasant  and friendly people. This explains how they always a ton of friends and people who admire them. Aquarius peeps are funny and full of charisma. Geminis are always said to be the life of the party, but as a Gemini I have to admit that Aquarius is that 10 times. There is a reason why Geminis and Aquarius are always paired as the perfect buddies with their outgoing and bubbly characters.

One thing I love about this sign is that they have fun everywhere, every time with everyone! Whatever they’re doing, they will find a way to make that time playful. But don’t get me wrong, they are also very hard workers. They are definitely one of the workaholics of the zodiac. But back to fun, when I was little my brother (who is an Aquarius) always played with me, brought me to the amusement park, built igloos with me, harnessed our dog in front of the sleight for me, let me play doctor on him (aka torture him). He was definitely never ashamed to be hanging out with his little sister and brought me everywhere with him. Did I say they were funny, no, they are hilarious! Me and my mom seriously pee ourselves every time my brother starts talking about something that happened to him or talking about people!

I’m sure you have heard how Leos have a king/queen complex and Aquarius has a god complex instead. Leos feel that they are better than others, but Aquarius feels that what they are doing/creating is the best. Not throwing shade at dear Aquas, just saying that they truly believe they are the best at what they do. And as I said they are very hard workers so fair enough!

If you’re wondering who are the biggest Casanovas of the zodiac…you’ve found them :D I can’t say that about the lady Aquariuses although we are all wondering if our grandpa is really our grandpa, cause  our Aquarius grandma was a naughty girl :D  Since Aquarius is the most free-spirited and open-minded of the zodiac it’s no wonder they’re always searching for novelty and new stimulations. I’ve seen many Aquarius men cheat but I truly don’t think they do it on purpose. They really do fall in love deeply with someone, it’s just that they get distracted quickly and fall in love with someone knew. They don’t mean to hurt anyone. I should’ve know I was fucked when my Aquarian boyfriend said to me, that if we’ll ever break up he won’t be sad, but will think of the  beautiful memories. I obviously didn’t feel the same way and soon he was gone with someone else and I was left with worst heartbreak ever. But of course this stuff depends a lot also on the persons Venus, Moon and other placements in the birth chart.

They are also the rebels, the daredevils, the badasses of the zodiac. They love adventure and trying out knew things. They are the ones getting on the scariest ride in the amusement park, they are the ones eating cockroaches in China and frogs in France, they are the ones to who crazy funny things happen to! They are dreamers with thousands ideas running through their minds and this often makes them forgetful which leads to forgetting their wallet on the top of the car, driving away from a gas station with the pump still attached and letting their dog out to pee during a long drive then driving away without the dog… All three of these have happened to my brother….LOL

For now I think I’ve said all I had. So dear Aquarius keep on being an awesome badass, we all love you just the way you are <3

I hope you enjoyed my point of view about Aquarius or learned something new. Whether you’re an Aquarius yourself or you know one, leave me your thoughts in the comments, I’d love to know about your experiences.

Imbolc 2017 – Our First

Remember when I said in my 2016 new years resolutions that I wanted to start celebrating the pagan holidays? But then I found out I was pregnant and all my resolutions went out of the window. Even though I’m struggling with an infant and two older kids I somehow managed to celebrate Imbolc and it felt great.

first

It all started when I decided to show and talk to my kids about what’s gonna come in February, festivities, birthdays and stuff. So I started explaining what Imbolc was – they weren’t impressed and left me hanging. But after a little they came back and I told them about the activities they started to be more interested. My six year old ran to re-organize their drawings shelf, cause Imbolc includes spring cleaning :D I explained to them, what an altar is and what to put there. My eight year old started pointing out some things we already had that could be used and I started thinking “hey, I might pull this off this year”. So I grabbed some things and set up my first ever altar.

20170201_212556

I laid out a small christmas tablecloth that has candles on it and is white, so it suits perfectly. I had two candles hanging around, white and red – Imbolc colors, perfect. Next I poured some mustard seeds in a bowl. Imbolc is all about the seeds and I wasn’t gonna use them for cooking anyway. I was looking up everything Imbolc related and saw that I also had two crystals that are suitable for this festivity, onyx and amethyst, so I placed them on the altar. I told my husband to buy me some white or red, or vanilla or orange scented candles for my altar and he comes back with green apple and brown candles… I was so upset I almost cried, emo much? Lol, he went back to change them. I really wanted some purifying/cleansing incense, but the nearest shop is closed when hubs finishes working and it’s impossible fgor me to go there with all the kids, bus and the stroller. But atleast I got some beautiful fresh white & yellow flowers <3

I know I don’t have any Brighid related things in my altar, but I prefer to focus on the nature side of these festivities. Maybe in the future I’ll start including Gods and Goddesses, but for now one step at the time. I worship Nature and celebrate it’s changes.

20170201_204336

The night before the kids made a buttered bread with sprinkles to put outside for the fairies.  In the morning we made sweet scrambled eggs for breakfast, cause you know eggs and dairy are an Imbolc food. Then I made a version of the Imbolc braided bread with raisins and boy did it turn out great, so soft and yummyyyy, paired with a glass of milk- heaven.

20170202_140607

In the afternoon we went for a walk to see if there were any signs of spring. The sun was shining, snow melting and I heard birds singing for the first time during the winter! It might snow again and get colder, but for Imbolc it was the perfect spring weather. The kids jumped in puddles and we looked for buds. Then in the evening we found a bug inside walking on the wall and my six year old started shouting:”A bug, it’s a sign, another sign of spring!” :D I laughed and helped the little fella outside.

20170202_151542

In the evening I planned to take a long bath, drink herbal tea and do an oracle reading but I passed out and half past nine without even taking off my makeup… #momlife Unfortunately this is the life as a mother, exhaustion catches up here and there. But overall I’m glad we got to celebrate, it’s the intention that counts :) The kids were excited and hopefully it’s a start of a long family tradition!

Have a beautiful weekend!
