MOTD #58 | Colorful Spring Makeup

spring4

Happy new week! How is everyone? I can’t believe how many makeup looks I’ve been doing lately, so if you like them – enjoy them while you can :D I go in spurts, one month it’s all about makeup and then suddenly I only want to talk about nature, world peace and herbs :D That’s why I can’t have a schedule, I just go with the flow :)

Felice nuova settimana! Come state tutti? Non riesco credere quanti trucchi ho fatto ultimamente, perciò se vi piacciono – godeteveli finchè potete :D Vado a scatti, un mese è tutto trucco e poi dal nulla voglio solo parlare della natura, pace del mondo ed erbe :D Ecco perché non riesco avere una programma, vado con la corrente :)

I love this happy and colorful spring makeup I created. For a moment I thought it was gonna be a disaster, but it turned out lovely. My eyeliner is not very neat, but in all honesty – I can’t fucking see it! I need one of those magnifying mirrors cause right now I can’t see close enough. It’s ok in real, but for close up photos it needs to be a million times better! Also it was my first time trying out a new lash glue, Fing’rs Precision Lash Adhesive, that I talked about in my latest haul. I had quite low expectations about this glue, but it totally blew my mind. Should I review it? Cause I see they have in many countries (stores list).

Adoro questo trucco allegro e primaverile, che ho creato oggi. Per un attimo pensavo sarebbe finito in un disastro, ma invece è venuto fuori bene. La mia linea di eyeliner non è molto precisa, ma in tutta onestà – non ci vedo cacchio! Mi serve uno di quei specchi d’ingrandimento perchè ora non riesco vedere da abbastanza vicino. Va bene dal vivo, ma per fare delle foto da vicino deve essere un millione di volte meglio! Ho anche provato per la prima volta la nuova colla per le ciglia, Fing’rs Precision Lash Adhesive, l’ho menzionato nel ultimo post di acquisti. Avevo poche aspettative, ma mi ha davvero stupito! Dovrei farne una recensione? Ho visto, che lo vendono in molti paesi (lista negozi) incluso Italia.

MOTD #57 – I feel Good

feelgood1

Hello hellooooo birdies! Spring really brings out the best in me. All that sunshine makes me shine from the inside as well. I’ll publish this post about a week after writing it, so let’s hope I’ll still feel as good and happy as I do today ^.^ I feel full of energy (as much as a pregnant women can be obviously), I’ve been dancing for the past two evenings, which is a great fun workout and it makes me happy. I’ve been out to the playground three consecutive days and this makes me so happy as well: a) cause the kiddos can finally run around and enjoy themselves b) i get fresh air and sunshine.

Ciao pulcini! La primavera porta fuori il meglio di me, tutto quel sole mi fa brillare anche da dentro. Questo post lo pubblicherò una settimana dopo averlo scritto, quindi spero di essere ancora alquanto felice e stare bene quanto oggi ^.^ Sono pieno di energia (almeno quanto si può essere in gravidanza), ho ballato per due ultime sere, il che è un ottimo allenamento e questo mi rende felice. Sono stata al parco giochi con i bimbi per tre giorni consecutive e anche questo mi rende davvero felice:  a) i bimbi possono finalmente sfogarsi e correre in giro b) mi faccio il pieno di sole ed aria fresca.

Today I felt pretty (as much as a pregnant women can feel pretty at least) after so long, it was probably a combination of good brows, right clothes and sunshine! Lately I’ve been using the I woke up this groomed brow kit by Makeup Revolution, but I haven’t been feeling my brows. Today I switched to my essence eyebrow stylist in 01 natural brunette and the difference is huge.

Oggi mi sono sentita bella (almeno quanto può sentirsi bella una donna incinta), dopo tantissimo tempo. Sarà stata la combinazione di sopracciglia venute bene, vestiti giusti e il sole che brillava! Ultimamente ho sempre usato I woke up this groomed brow di Makeup Revolution, ma non era mai giusto. Oggi ho ripreso il mio essence eyebrow stylist in 01 natural brunette e la differenza si vede.

Now that the weather is nice I could finally wear this lightweight cardigan (blazer? blouse? jacket?). How much can the right clothes change you! This one is perfect to throw on a simple top, makes the look more elegant and makes you look slimmer. I also got one in coral. I wanted to show them to you in a try on haul post, but every time hubs was home we wither forgot or I wasn’t feeling it. Anyway I found them on sale for 9lev (about 5euro), what a great deal!

Con il tempo bello ho finalmente potuto indossare questo bellissimo cardigan (giacchetta? camicia senza bottoni? blazer?). Quanto possono cambiarti i vestiti giusti, questo è perfetto da buttare sopra una maglietta semplice, sembri subito più elegante e fa anche sembrare più magra. Ne ho preso uno uguale anche di color corallo. Volevo farveli vedere in un post di acqquisti ed indossarli anche perché così si capiva meglio, ma ovviamente quando c’era mio marito per fare le foto o non me la sentivo o ce la dimenticavamo… Comunque li ho trovati in offerta a 9lev (ca 5euro),davvero un affarone!

Long time no see – Update

Hello my dear ones, I hope you’re all doing well <3 I’m sorry for not posting or sharing updates for so long :( I just wasn’t feeling like it, not only cause of feeling like crap physically, but I also went through an emotional roller coaster, which really wasn’t a roller coaster, cause roller coasters go up and down, but I just went down :D

PS! Oggi niente italiano perché sarà un post lungo e non ce la faccio al momento di scriverlo anche in italiano. Spero non vi dispiace <3

I am currently 15 weeks pregnant. Nausea and extreme fatigue have been fading away for the past two weeks so yayyyy for that! I didn’t want to do any pregnancy updates or belly shots, cause I felt hugeeeeee! Women who have already had children in the past get bigger  sooner, cause of the muscles being weaker and stuff and I also think body already “knows the deal”, and is like “ok, let’s do this shit” ahahahaaa It’s kind of terrifying being 3 months pregnant, but you’re body’s like “booooom, here’s a 5 month belly for ya!” :D Also I was retaining a lot of water, I was so bloated all over my body I felt like I was going to explode any moment. I was so uncomfortable and I couldn’t even move. Since my eating habits haven’t been the best before and in the beginning of the pregnancy I got myself the prenatal vitamins. After two days I woke up and felt great, I was like “Hey hun, I look so thin today” :D It was like someone had taken a pin and popped a balloon (only I was the balloon), I felt so much better it was incredible! I was clearly missing vitamins before.

I’m not sure what hit me yesterday, but I went full clean freak mode. I don’t know if it’s the nesting instinct that’s kicking in or just one of those rare times I get the mood and energy to do everything. Besides doing tons of housework, I also went to the makeup store, cause I desperately needed some essentials. I haven’t been wearing makeup at all for the past months and I also managed to run out of foundation and concealer somehow. The shop I went to, is about  2km away and I went by foot…. Useless to say all that walking plus tons of housework didn’t do any favors to my poor body.  Later that night I had hard time sleeping, my back was hurting (has been for two days already), my stomach was hard and it felt like the baby was pushing against everything inside my belly.  I felt so bad, that I had a dream about going to labor :D So yeah, when you’re pregnant, don’t try to be a superwoman!

I planned to rest today, but decided to run to the store around 8 am to get hair dye. I went so early so I my husband could stay with the kids before heading to work. So I got a good workout also today :D Fortunately this store is very close to our home! Also I really wanted to get my hair done in the morning, so I could try out my new foundation and maybe do a makeup for the blog. So now I am a redhead again :) Feels great. I got a dark red color for dark hair, but it’s a lot brighter then I expected (it doesn’t look bright on the pictures though). No biggie, cause it will fade soon anyway.

Don’t mind the red on my shirt, it’s just an old shirt I didn’t mind ruining, but I would’ve changed for you peeps if I had noticed it earlier! :* I guess this concludes my update. Hopefully I won’t be a stranger again, but who knows, these damn pregnancy hormones have me all over the place!

Happy Women’s Day
