HEALTHY SNACK – OAT BRAN COOKIES WITH BLUBBERYS AND RASBERRYS| COOKING

Just as any other human on this planet I have cravings for sweet things. Usually I am not the one to go for the sugary goods, but last night I need something to satisfy a sudden urge.  Here is the thing though – I try to eat healthy and I have gathered that I can make pretty much anything using oat bran. This makes the dish 50% healthier right away…

THOUGHTS I HAVE AS A PLUS SIZE GIRL | I’M A COMPULSIVE HOARDER

I usually try to keep the tone on my blog positive. But as much as I like to write beautiful words, rolled into advices and opinions and garnished with pretty photos – life is not always so bright! One of the biggest reasons I ever started writing was to try and help people that have the same struggles like me and comfort myself at the same time through sharing. Well…

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY#INSTAMARC LIGHT FILTERING CONTOUR POWDER | REVIEW

It is really cool when you have friends that love makeup as much as you do. I adore those days when we gather together over a big plate full with cookies and we chat the afternoon away. The discussions vary from: do mermaids exist to of course our favourite subject – beauty! The last time, I asked my girls to bring me one of their favourite makeup items. I choose…

WEEKLY WISH LIST #2

I remember that when I was a child, me and my friend played this game of “grownups”. We were taking magazines and looking through the pages. Each one of us had to choose an outfit and then we played our game, imagining all the stuff we wished we had were ours. Life is funny and lots of years later I guess we still play that game once in…

BIRCHBOX FRANCE FOR SEPTEMBER| REVIEW

Another month, another BIRCHBOX FRANCE came knocking on my door (figuratively).  September had been greatly awaited by me and I can feel the beginning of the autumn. Just tonight we had one of the most epic storms I have ever seen and it was glorious. So is this month’s Birchbox by the way since it contains some pretty cool stuff. First of let’s start with the inspiration…

THE BODY SHOP MASKS & BRITISH ROSE RANGE| REVIEW

Ok, a little disclaimer is in order. I might be kind of obsessed with The Body Shop masks and the new collection.  I am a big fan of this brand and I like to have a sneak peak at their site from time to time. Just to see if they have something new. Of course, the moment I saw the new masks, I wanted to try them right away. But…

MAKEUP I DIDN’T KNOW EXISTED WHEN I WAS YOUNG

The last couple of weeks, all over YouTube, beauty gurus have been sharing how they used to do their makeup. I love those videos and find them super funny. For anyone who enjoys beauty and makeup it is always interesting to see the evolution of someone’s style through the years. But this made me think of what kind of makeup I had when I was in school? Two words…

MONTHLY FAVORITES | AUGUST

It seems that the month of August just got away from me and September started with a visit from a close friend of mine. So you can understand why I am the last person on the blogosphere to post my MONTHLY FAVORITES. Sorry about the delay! This was one very fun and very long month.  But it is over and hopefully the crazy heat is going to go soon too…

BOURJOIS RADIANCE REVEAL CONCEALER| REVIEW

Trying to hide the little imperfections on the skin and those pesky dark circles under the eyes can be hard. For me at least, finding a good concealer at affordable price was a very big priority. And the concealer is also a big part of my makeup regimen. So I had tried a lot. Usually I go for the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer, but recently I had found a…

FAVORITE PLUS SIZE SHOPS | PLUS SIZE FASHION

 I think, that if you are a plus size woman at some point in your life you had had a problem finding what to wear. Truth to be told, this is something that just does not sit well with me. I mean, you can spend thousands of dollars on something that is practically not wearable, but you cannot extend your brand’s sizing? I might sound a bit bitter…
