My Sex and the City

Every once in a while I get this insane idea to write a Carrie Bradshaw like post. Even though I am kind of a lifestyle blogger, relationships and sex were never my forte, actually those topics were delicately avoided in my posts over last few years. Since I am starting a process of getting out of my comfort zone and trying new things for myself I thought this post could be a good first step on that road when it comes to my career in writing.

Carrie always puts hers and her friend’s experiences in her posts so I am going to try to broadly do just that. We already talked about how this summer turned on a bit more serious note by me terminating a relationship to be in a better place of mind and we also talked about importance of healthy selfishness when it comes to your own happiness and mental health in general. Now we are going to talk about making yourself happy in other ways.

Since I have terminated that relationships a few things happened along the way that brought me to the door of opening a new relationship fairly soon to ending of the first one. Of course, me being a crazy over-thinker and all-blames-on-me person, I got a bit puzzled by what my next move should be. I was at a huge crossroad that was problematic for numerous reasons. I knew how would it look and I didn’t want it to look like I left one person for another because I really didn’t. Also, I didn’t want to lose a chance for something that could be so good and so perfect because of a tricky timing that was only tricky because I felt like I was being promiscuous for something that just isn’t like that. What I was afraid of was that other people would think that I am cold and quite simply a bitch. And somewhere along the line of me over thinking that little voice popped in my mind.

Is this making you happy?  – An easy question isn’t it.
Yes! – Even easier answer.
Then why are feeling guilty for wanting to be happy? Isn’t everybody’s aspiration in life to BE HAPPY?! At that point I decided to let the moment decide for me and not to limit myself to anything. If its bound to happen it will! And it did. It really was a moment. A pure moment in which I thought to myself Yeah, this is it, this is right…  For what it takes, I do feel a little guilty still, but not for making the decisions that I made because I still stand by them.

On a slightly different note now. This summer is a really fast summer. A lot of things happened in a short period of time. I can see my friends trying to find themselves, exploring what life has to offer and being open to new experiences just as I am. And nothing makes me happier than that. We are truly growing up and having fun doing so, finally. Mistakes were made, but who cares really? Rules are to be broken and mistakes are to be made. We are here to find and create ourselves, and to have fun by fucking up ( something that me and my friends were reminded recently).

Nothing should be taken too seriously especially when we talk about sex and relationships in your early days. Nobody really expects you to have your life together, so you shouldn’t either. It is not a crime to enjoy yourself however you might want (of course if you aren’t hurting others in a way that is legally considered a crime 😆 ). And also it’s summer, what is better than being young in summer? A lot of things, but it’s still too awesome of an opportunity not to take it while you still can!

Let’s have a chat about being selfish

Maybe you read this tittle and thought to yourself what the hell is she talking about. Or maybe a single thought hasn’t popped up in your mind, but either way you are reading my newest post in which I am mostly going to talk about myself and some changes I have been facing last few months. It really is weird seeing yourself change as it happens right in front of your eyes.

If you knew me you would know that I am always trying to help others and most of the time at my own expense. I like helping, don’t get me wrong but it takes so much energy from me that it makes sense why I am a hard introvert that needs to charge batteries by spending some quality time alone. Also, there are so many people who take advantage on me being myself and just let me do all of their work for them because they know I will. For past month or so, I started to see myself the toll this way of living put on me and slowly I began tearing from inside without anyone else noticing. What really got me was that the people closest to me didn’t notice my suggestive cry for help because they were so into their own problems which made mine invisible.

At that point I realized I had too many toxic relations with people who always seem to run short when it comes to me but I always put them before me. For my own good and for theirs I started a painful process of removing all of the toxicity and finally after so many years of my life I began walking a new path. A path led by healthy selfishness, I began pushing myself to put myself on a higher priority list if I cannot put myself first. After a short period of time I felt the difference this made in my life. I felt healthier, happier and more relaxed just by spending more time incorporating helping myself into my own life.

I don’t know if anyone will relate to this, but I never really wrote posts to be relatable did I? I wrote this to leave a piece of my soul here and to hopefully make people think or help them, so I sincerely hope you enjoyed this quick read I presented you today.

I’ve got some explaining to do…

It has been 2 months since my last post, I don’t think it has ever been that long without a post since I started this blog and I just got a message that today is the 3rd anniversary of me creating it. Well, I really do have some explaining to do but I am not going to go into great details.

I feel like no matter how long have you been with me or with my blog I owe an explanation, even though I do not really think anyone really cares. Past 2 months have really been full with so much stress and loosing and finding my spirit on and on. I cannot explain things without context and I cannot give context because it is about my personal life (a bit too personal). Now let’s talk about stuff I can talk about.

First stressor I have encountered was me trying to enroll into a college. It really was a rocky road, but now when I look back at it there was no place for panicking or even being stressed about but stress is in my blood. Since I decided to stay in Croatia to continue my education I had no idea what to go for because I thought there was no way I could do what I wanted here. But as it turns out I can, and even though I wasn’t really happy with the college I got in at first now I know it is actually just the thing I wanted for as long as I can remember. This fall I am an official student of anthropology and Italian studies.

Other news, my work is both stressful and stress relieving in a way.  I also kind of lost an important person in my life, maybe lost isn’t a good description of the situation but will go with it. The good thing is that I am trying to get out of it all stronger. I am learning to put myself first or at least on a bit more important place than I am now. I am hopelessly trying to save myself and it might look like I am running away from everything I am dealing with the devil in me the best way I know and I can. This whole situation left me more anxious than ever and I am having, again, at least one panic attack a week and my head is so messed up that I cannot even decide what to eat and especially write something worth reading.

That is all I have to say right now. I have no idea when the next post will be but I will think about doing some photography posts to start up again. Goodbye, I’ll hopefully see you in my next post!

Exam Anxiety – How to keep it down

I haven’t post a while, but I do have a good reason for that. I am currently in the stage of studying for my finals (and as of today I did half of my finals). That’s why I didn’t really have any new ideas or even time to do something on here, but I said to myself listen make the best of your situation. So I decided to write a post about how to keep down your anxiety during finals or any exam therefore. I hope this post will help you to deal with your anxiety the best you can.


EXAM ANXIETy.png

  • Breathe, breathe, breathe!

    I cannot stress how important it is to breathe in and out calmly. Not only it helps you stay calm it also prevents hyperventilating. If you are walking to the place you are taking your test do this for most of your walk, if not then before you start writing whatever is in front of you (before you take a look at tasks). It really helps you gather all those positive thoughts you have and push all negative voices hiding in your head.

  • Always wake up with 30 minutes to spare. 

    Take your time getting ready, do everything you have to do calmly like you have nowhere to go. Also you never know, a panic attack could happen and you cannot be late. It is a good time to have little extra time.

  • Prepare you clothes and bag the night before. 

    You should do this ahead because you are calm at this stage and have less chance to forget something you need. Besides you can prepare that favourite shirt you love that brings you luck and comfort, since that cannot be a bad thing to have.

  • Make a relaxing song playlist.
    This can also be good if you are walking to the place in combination with breathing exercises, but if you aren’t walking then you can listening to it whilst getting ready and doing your makeup. I find music very therapeutic in dealing with anxiety and stress, so much that when I had at least one panic attack a weak I couldn’t leave my house without headphones.

  • Stop and have a talk with yourself. 

    This can be done however you like, vocally our with your inner voice in your head. You can combine it with some other techniques or just literally sit down in your house before leaving and tell yourself you got this, you prepared for it and it is going to be alright. This way you also prevent that little mean voice in your head that is always saying how incompetent you are.

  • Don’t skip breakfast and a glass of water.
    It doesn’t take a genius to tell that hunger plus dehydration plus anxiety equals catastrophe. So please take good care of yourself and eat at least a chocolate bar to give you some energy to fight off the stress.

  • Try not to go to bed too late.
    I know a lot of people pull all nighters before exams and that could work for some people, but I do not recommend that to someone who has anxiety. It is hard enough, but with sleep deprivation it is even harder to stay calm. Try to get a few hours of sleep and maybe a nice, quick shower in the morning. It really works wonders.

That would be all I have to say folks. These things keep my anxiety down and help me to concentrate and give my best. If you have some of your tips please do write them down, so I and others can read them! Thank you for your attention once again.

Ready to be a tourist – Outfit inspiration

Shoes: Leather Converse
Choker: Bershka
Sunglasses: Snob
Bag: Local shop 
Dress: HM

 

I love this look a lot. With this scenery behind me a really do look like a tourist, but this is actually my home town. While I was on my morning coffee that turned into a walk, I was feeling myself and I wanted to capture my outfit to do one of these posts again, I stumbled upon a totally new place in my own hometown. This outfit is one of those that you can literally wear anywhere you want with elevating it with some style pieces to make it more or less casual.

If you have already read some of my older Outfit Inspiration posts you have seen most of these items here featured, but not this dress. This is a new dress I bought maybe a month ago in HM for something affordable. It’s a denim dress and it’s made kind of like an overall dress (I also styled it like that before, which you can see on my instagram – link below), but now when it’s warmer and it’s almost summer I decided to wear it just as a plain dress. It really is something special, a simple show stopper.

Whenever I have enough free time to go out of my house and breathe in some fresh air, I take it. Usually, since it’s hot and I am busy, I go for a simple outfit. So, this black bag that I got half a year ago is a perfect one to match all of my outfits and kill 2 birds with one stone. Let me elaborate, I look well put together and I get ready crazy fast. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you the exact store where you can find this one, since it is a local shop here in my hometown, but I am sure you can find something very similar to this in HM or ASOS.

As I already mentioned in a few of my posts, I like to elevate simple articles of clothing with some noticeable accessorize. Here you can see my favourite Snob sunglasses that I love to death and my favourite choker that goes with everything. Snob sunglasses are probably the most special fashion thing I own. I cannot spend a day out with them without getting compliments, they are just so perfect. Reflective but not too much and they have the perfect frame for smaller heads. This choker has been on outfit inspiration post numerous times, so many that I cannot even tell you anything new about it. It’s from Bershka, it comes in the pack of 4 chokers and I got it for Christmas. Enough said!

Since I decided to go with denim and black details my black leather Converse where the only option for shoes that I can think off. I love to pair Converse and dresses, it’s a trend that I hope never goes out of fashion. These are two and a half years old, but really with the laces cleaned they look super new. With them I kind of rounded the whole look that is simple but a bit edgy and different.

All in all I like how I feel when I am wearing this and that is the single most important thing with fashion, it is most certainly supposed to make you feel great. That would be all from me today. I hope you enjoyed the post. Thank you joining me today and reading my post.

For more day-to-day looks, makeup and other be sure to follow me on my two instagrams (links on the right side and/or under this). Also for previews of my posts and notices about when something is out! Thank you for reading once again, I’ll see you in my next post and I for sure hope you are going to be there again!!

Mood board for May

pages.jpg

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover). The mood board of the month is going live on the last week of that month!


I have to admit that it’s getting pretty hard to write new stuff on these, but I guess I am pulling it of still (kind of). I’m pretty sure that I have repeated some things a few times, but who cares, right?

This month I have been really loving my nails and nail polish, which is a rare case if you know me. 

I cannot way for the day when I can sleep in all day and not have to do anything for the whole day. 

On the similar note I am going on a short vacation (if you can even call it that) in the end of June. I have to be in Zagreb for my entrance exam 1st of July so I am going a few days before to kind of distress after my final exams (a total of 5). 

Oh, and also as soon as I get back from Zagreb I am working, so I really need to get some rest there. 

I save old roses. I have an old bouquet on my desk and I don’t even care how it looks, it’s cute to me. 

I cannot wait to go to the beach again, when I find the time to do so. 

Excited to bring more colours in my wardrobe, currently I am loving pink more than ever before.

Of course it can always be widen by new movies ( whether some new movies come out or by your suggestions, so be welcome to note some of your favourite movies in the comments ).

  • Dirty Grandpa

About my prom

img_5694-1k.jpgsnapseed-1img_5665img_5675img_5685

 

Welcome to my prom post! This is just going to be a quick overview of the event.

So my prom was 13.05.2017 (Saturday) and I am just now recovering from lack of sleep and the amount of dancing caused by it. As you can see we had it in a beautiful location, one of the best hotels in our town. The day was perfect and sunny, we couldn’t have picked a better day to celebrate.

Now as for the fashion. My dress is dark blue with see-through and crystal details, both in front and back. I loved the idea of bare back and a dress that just follows my silhouette. This dress if from La Perla and I absolutely adore it to death! My shoes, that you cannot really see in any of these photos, are plain silver 10 cm heels from a brand called Sweet Shoes and I got them in a local store, but they could probably be found online as well. Earrings are white gold with swarovski crystals as well as my ring. My nail polish is a metallic one that I found literally the day before in a drugstore for something cheap. It’s essence and I have to tell you it really lasts a long time, but you do need 3 layers to get this colour. I also had one of those backless, strapless bras that you just stick on and pull up and I believe it did a good job, of course there where a lot of sweating but it lasted! I also had a gliterry silver bag that I bought but I have no idea what brand it is, but I am sure there is a million bags just like this one anywhere you go.

That’s pretty much it that I have to say, I hope you liked this short post about my prom. I had a blast, I stayed up all night and came home in the morning. Sleep deprivation is still happening, but it was definitely worth it!

Thank you for reading.

April favourites

Here we go, another favourites post. If you follow my blog content closely you would know that I skipped March favourites, and that is because I didn’t really have a lot of new things to show. So here is the 3rd favourites post of the year. I hope you’ll enjoy!

 

img_5343

Farmasi All in One CC Cream

Farmasi is a brand that I have just recently heard of and, since I ordered a few of their things. One of those things was this CC cream and I absolutely fell in love with it. It is a bit darker, but it still looks good on me and very natural. It lasts about 5/6 hours until I get oily which is long for my skin. I also love the slight scent it has, as long as the fact that I can use it without compact powder without looking like a complete mess! Also it was pretty inexpensive, especially since it was on sale.

Maybelline Colorshow 60 seconds nail polish in 20 Blush Berry and 59 Marina Chic 

I was really impressed by these nail polishes from Maybelline, you get such a great quality for a small amount of money. There is so many colours to choose from, I got this dark blue one for myself and a week after that I got the berry one as a gift. The colours are so amazing, I am for sure going to where one of them for my prom this Saturday. Also in all of these photos I am wearing the 20. I have never seen before that I can wear the same nail polish, after two coats, for a week and have minimal chipping that isn’t even noticeable. Best thing ever!

img_5339

Maybelline Fit me foundation

Since I run out of the Farmasi CC cream I had to buy a new foundation in my local drugstore. I went in to get the affinitone one, but my shade was sold out. That is why I picked this foundation that I previously considered to dry-looking after I tried the tester on my skin. And let me tell you it is definitely dry, but not too dry that it looks awful, it is matt and smooth. What I need to mention is that if you have dry skin or dry patches this foundation is not for you! My nose is a bit dryer that the rest of my skin and I can notice a difference, but since it is not completely dry it still looks fine. The price is same as the affinitone is, so I thought that it was worth trying.

 

img_5338

Essence Eyebrow designer in Blonde

I have no idea how I managed to get to this point and not mention this product. This eyebrow pencil is a product that is a constant in my makeup routine, and I have been repurchasing it for more than 2 years. This is the lightest shade that they offer and it works perfectly with my skin tone and hair colour. it is so inexpensive but works perfectly. If they discontinue this one I have no idea what product will I have to buy next. Also it’s bigger when you buy it (I use it a lot 😉 ).

 

 

img_5348

Flormar Lip Balm in Black Mulberry 

I got this lip balm when I was on my excursion  in September, in Athens. I just walked in the first store I saw was opened and picked this one up. What draw me to this balm was the colour and the scent which match perfectly. I love wearing pigmented lip balms like this and Maybelline’s Baby Lips electro. This is the perfect thing to always bring with you wherever you go because it keeps your lips moisturized and it has SPF 15!

 

 

img_5345

Farmasi Botanics Shampoo with Nettle 

I have very problematic hair. Even though it is fairly short it gets oily too fast and I have dandruff as well. This shampoo actually makes a difference when it comes to my hair. I can usually last 2 days without washing my hair and this gives me an extra day without washing it. As soon as your hair dries you see how soft and shiny your hair is, and the scent that this shampoo leaves is absolutely heavenly, I never knew something like nettle can be good for your hair, but when my hairdresser recommended both nettle and this particular shampoo I had to get it straight away and I haven’t regretted!

 

img_5346

Snob Milano sunglasses 

I couldn’t wait for better weather so I can start wearing these babies again. I got them last year somewhere in the middle of summer. These are reflective but not too much, since I really hate that. They are a small frame since they are italian, which works perfectly with my small head. I can honestly say that I have never seen a pair of sunglasses that look better on me than these. I fell like I get so many compliments every single time I wear them or post them on instagram. Definitely money well spent!

 

img_5340

Rimmel Lasting finish compact powder

I decided to break routine a little and try a new compact powder. I picked this Rimmel one and I do not really have to say a lot about it honestly. It works fine and it lasts a long time in combination with my new foundation, and that is the reason why it is in my April favourites. But I also think I won’t be repurchasing it again because I think my Catrice compact powder work just as good for less amount of money and also you get a bit more product. I got this on 50% off sale so it was approximately the same price as the Catrice one.

 

img_5336 Schaebens Peel-off Mask

Recently Muller opened in my home town and I went to buy something new there to try it out. I saw this mask on the shelf and since I haven’t ever tried a peel off mask I decided to give it a try, and also it doesn’t cost a lot of money (maybe 1 euro). After trying it for the first time I fell in love with it. It leaves your skin clean and mattiefied instantly. Your complexion looks so even and nice,  I have never seen a mask do something like that. This small packaging has enough for two uses. The only thing that I find disappointing is that this packaging is all they have, there isn’t a full size product, at least in my town.

 


 

That  would be it for this months favourites. I hope you have enjoyed and that you are going to come back for more next month! Please do be so kind and leave a couple of your favourites from April in the comments below.

Mood board for April

pagek.jpg

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover). The mood board of the month is going live on the last Monday of that month! Or in this case a week later (sorry for that)!


 

First of all I changed my instagram username to smalltownblogger, so go and check that out!

I am thinking about colouring my hair into purple or pink, something pastel like.

There is no one crazier about dogs than me. I cannot see one without stopping and petting them or waving at them (I know, who does that 🙂 ).

I drink coffee probably 5-7 times a week. And by coffee I mean Nescafe.

I really want new prescription glasses, something a bit more out there than my plain black D&G’s.

Currently I am really into pastel colours in clothing! I seriously need to go spring shopping soon.

I have my mother’s ring, that my father bought her for one year dating anniversary, on my left hand for years now. I haven’t taken it off since I first put it on, and I don’t plan on it any time soon!

I love makeup, that’s not anything new. But most of all I love doing my eyes, I can spend a whole day just doing that and of course I never leave home without eye makeup. I consider it my trademark.

Basic – Outfit Inspiration

Sunglasses: Snob
Choker: Bershka 
Shirt: Zara TRF
Jeans: Zara

Boots: HM 

New outfit post. This one is perfect for the beginning of spring, it’s so easy and simple to assemble, but even though it is basic it looks so good that you can wear it pretty much anywhere. Today I went on a short walk and in a small cafe on the beach, but I would also wear this shopping or even to school. But no more digression, we will start with the items on the pictures right away.

My favourite sunglasses that I wear everywhere, when I got the chance to. They are from Snob Milano and I got them last summer in a store in my home town that sells their stuff. I usually hate reflective sunglasses but these are different, they are not so reflective, they do not look like a mirror like most of the reflective sunglasses do. Also the frame looks so good on me because it is made tiny which is perfect for my small face.

My choker is from Bershka and it is part of a pack of 5 chokers that I got for Christmas. This one is the one I wear the most since it goes with anything. In this case I want to make this shirt less sporty and casual, but still not overdue it. I think I managed to do that, don’t you think? I already talk about it in my previous posts, so I really do not have anything else to say about it.

On that topic my boots are the Chelsea boots from HM that I got a year and a half ago in Rome, I talked too much about them so I won’t say anything more about them. It is more than unnecessary. They are also featured in my last Outfit Inspiration that I did a few weeks ago that you can check out by clicking HERE!

This shirt is fairly new, I got it maybe two months ago for something absurdly cheap in Zara. It was one of the pieces that were on sale in the beginning of the year, and also the only thing I picked up from Zara on that sale. It is so basic but it can be styled into a pretty stylish outfit. It is light and perfect for spring. Also, I really love stripes and pockets on shirts, who knows why :).

My first real ripped jeans! I wanted to see what the hype was about and I previously got the fishnet tights to go under them so it was obvious that I should get me some. And I am crazy about them now. These are from Zara also, but they weren’t on sale and I got them more recently  than the shirt.

That’s all folks! This was a quick post and I believe a quick read. I hope you enjoyed it and that you will be coming for more posts  like these since I really like to write them. Thank you for reading and thank you for your attention.

Also for previews of my posts and notices about when something is out! Thank you for reading once again, I’ll see you in my next post and I for sure hope you are going to be there again!!

13 Reasons Why – why it is so special

I am sure a lot of you heard about this title recently, since Netflix dropped the season some time ago. It was based on a book written a couple of years ago and it was first meant to be made into a movie, but thank God it is a series because it has so much going on that I don’t think anyone can catch up in two hours.


What I wanted to talk to you about today is why this show is so special and why you should watch it if you didn’t already. I am not going to mention any spoilers so you are safe to read further.

This show is ab13-reasons-why_0.jpgout a girl named Hannah Baker who was bullied and misunderstood in her high-school. She killed herself and the story actually starts and ends with her suicide. Before she killed herself she made 13 taped explaining the reasons why she killed herself, people who caused her to do so. We are actually following Clay, Hannah’s coworker and let’s say friend, getting the tapes and listening to them one by one and revealing us what has happened in Hannah’s life since she moved to this high-school until her death.  That is all the basic information you need to get the just of this show, now let’s start with what I meant to write today.

So 13 Reasons Why. A show like nothing I have ever seen before. Not only it shows suicide, but also rape, bullying, lying, sexuality and most of all the lost life of a teenager. All topics mentioned in various shows and movies but never like this. It is so raw and real that by watching it you are so aware that this is so real, this is something that is happening right now to someone you don’t know, and something that has happened to someone you know but you have no idea about it.
What I was personally most surprised about was the scene from the last episode. The scene we all knew was going to happen, even you who just have read the short overview I have written above. The scene that shows how Hannah actually killed herself. And I mean really shows it. I have never seen something like that shown anywhere, not in dramas, not in shows with medical or criminal background not anywhere. The act of slitting your wrists sound so scary to most of us, but seeing this scene on my screen I was terrified, I was moved, I was shaken to my core. Seeing Hannah’s obvious pain that she considered the last and ultimate option that she has to take woke me up like a cold shower. I understand why this was made. Any suicidal person who has watched the show and especially that scene would be so shaken that he or she would reconsider everything he or she thought about, including me.
Also a thing about this show that is great is showing how much human interaction and contact is important. And how much people actually affect one another on a everyday basis. Those 13 people Hannah mentions as her reasons, they are not all aware they did something so awful to this girl, most of them don’t even think about their actions once they do them. No body cares, until she is dead. No body but Clay.
Show also to me represents what a lack of communication can do. People often just assume what the other person is thinking, or are too scared to say what they want, resulting in a lot of important things being left unsaid. A lot of problems in everyday life are caused by lack of communication and compassion. This show also presents how people have become number as a result of having technology and hiding behind it. I think that’s the reasons the author choose tapes as a media through which Hannah speaks to people who have hurt her, which is genius when you stop and think about it.
Something very important that was highlighted was that even if you did not say no it doesn’t mean that it isn’t rape, it certainly doesn’t mean that you want it. Consent is a real thing people! Especially when a person isn’t able to say no, or when a person is trying to get away without saying no. Just because you want something or you feel entitled to something it doesn’t mean it is yours to take. This is a real issue, and I guess it isn’t talked about enough since a lot of people have no idea what consent means. It also talks about teenagers pressuring their partners about having sex and the whole slut shaming thing that happens in every highs school around the world. It shows how different an untrue rumour about a girl is treated with an abominable amount of slut shaming, but when it comes to a guy raping it is covered up.
All in all it is an interesting show to watch, but also a really hard one. I really recommend it to everyone and I already talked all my friends into watching it. I haven’t yet heard or read anything negative about the show, but most importantly I couldn’t find something negative about it myself. If you have already watched it or you just started watching it leave your opinion about the show in the comments below!
Thank you for reading and for your attention (this was probably one of my longest post ever), I hope I have at least presented you something interesting to read if nothing else. If I made you want to see this show right away please let me know in the comments as well and mention why exactly!

Social equality?

A society that treats everyone the same, as equals. Is that just a utopia or a real possibility that could happen in the future of human kind?

I think everyone can agree that we live in a cruel world where justice rarely happens. Our world is homophobic and racist, women are treated as less and paid less than men. Now, especially considering recent events with terrorist attacks, a question has risen in our minds. What is necessary for an equal society?
Pessimistic views on this question are common, so there are a lot of people who do not believe in a possibility of a better world. The idea of something so ideal and perfect is too hard to comprehend to some, resulting in people not even trying to change anything that is wrong with this world. Also, a lot of people who watched someone being treated unfairly or even put down for an unjust reason, have lost their belief in all humanity and in all good that this world has to offer. Some also do not want to fight for the better world because they think nothing is going to change because nothing has changed for centuries, which is a dangerously wrong opinion.

On the other hand ones that do believe in such a possibility try to change the world everyday. People like this have seen how revolutions, rebellions and protest have changed the world through history, from racial segregation in South Africa and USA, to women rights in UK, USA, France and all over Europe. They believe that if enough people stand up together for the same cause they will change history, they will make this world a better place.  That is why today there are a lot of protest like Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ+ parades all over the world. Not to forget the importance of celebrities that stand proud as feminists, LGBTQ+ members or supporters, who in that way send a message of peace and equality.

For the conclusion, there will always be people who fight for what they believe in, here for a better world. In the same way, there will always be people who do not fight for that since they do not believe in it. The important thing is that people who believe in such a possibility have changed and still are changing the world step by step.

Overall a good look – Outfit inspiration

Jeans: HM Overalls
Bag: Local shop
Shirt:
Bershka
Jacket: Zara 
Boots: 
HM

It’s been a while since I posted my last Outfit Inspiration post, so I thought that I should do one as the first post of the month. Here you see my go to pieces for spring that I literally wear everywhere, from school to coffee and even, with the right shoes, when I go out.

First let’s talk about my overalls that a got a while ago, at the end of the summer, in HM. I already owned short black overalls when I stumbled upon these ones and I had to get them. I wore them hundred times since I bought them and they look so cool and unique no matter how you style them. I usually wear a turtleneck under it, like I did here.

This burgundy turtleneck is from Bershka and I got it when I was in Zagreb in November when I was there for the Justin Bieber concert. I love wearing burgundy and I bought this shirt because it was the exact colour of the boots I got an hour before in Shoebox (that I featured in my last favourites). What can I say, it really was meant to be and also when I am not wearing all black I am wearing black with burgundy :).

This jacket is from Zara and it has a peplum end. I am not really going to talk more about it since I already featured this piece in one of my older Outfit Inspiration posts that you can see here. And about this bag, it is a black messenger bag with little dark silver studs in the corners. It is a perfect size and I received it as a gift from my mother at the beginning of the year.

Next and last I will tell you more about these black boots. They are black leather Chelsea boots I got a year and half ago while I was in Rome. They were really affordable and trendy then so I had to buy them. They really go with everything and they are really great to slip on in a hurry because you do not have to worry about laces, heals or even do they look good with your outfit – they always do!

That’s it for today’s post. I would like to thank you for your attention and I hope you liked the way you spent your last few minutes reading my piece. Also I would like to take this time to thank my amazing amateur photographer who always listens to my vision and takes the camera in hands when I order that way. I couldn’t do this without you!

For more day-to-day looks, makeup and other be sure to follow me on my two instagrams (links on the right side and/or under this). Also for previews of my posts and notices about when something is out! Thank you for reading once again, I’ll see you in my next post and I for sure hope you are going to be there again!!

Mood board for March

pagen.jpg

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover). The mood board of the month is going live on the last Monday of that month!


I am so tired all the time. I don’t remember the time where I was more tired than this, all I want to do is to stay in bed forever and on top of that I have a lot of trouble with falling asleep.

I love rose, it is a perfect mix between red and white wine and it reminds me of summer romantic nights. 

In a hunt for a longer coat or any longer outerwear but with my height an article of clothing like that is so hard to find. 

Warmer days have started and I am slowly switching to cold coffee. 

Also searching for a perfect lace brallette.

Since I bought new ripped jeans I have been wearing them with my fishnet tights and velvet burgundy boots.

I only own two black overalls, one short one for the summer and a longer one for rest of the year. I am thinking of buying a denim one also to break the pattern. 

I haven’t had a nice bath with Lush products in a long time.

Sunset photo session

A week ago, on a Monday, I went on a walk to clear my head from everything. It was near the sunset time so I took the opportunity to shoot some photos and they turned out amazing so I decided to show you the outcome. All the photos are taken on my iPhone and posted without any editing. Hope you will enjoy as much as I did when I shoot them!

Writing and fighting

As a writer, or whatever you want to call someone like me, I found sitting down and writing a post a very special thing. I love writing even if I know I am going to write a page and delete it. I love to press these letters even if I don’t have any idea what to write about. The feeling of inspiration striking and the gathering of your thought as you write is probably one of the best feelings ever.

I don’t know if everyone here understands that these sit down and just write post, I exclusively write for myself and if you enjoy it that is a plus, but you liking it isn’t a necessary goal of mine. I am not trying to be that entertaining or amusing. I am quite literally having a conversation with myself in written form and choose to publish it for you I miss you a littleto read if that is something you want. Of course I am pleased when people like and comment my posts, and when my words get read, don’t take it the wrong way.

I also think that this way you get quality content and you get to understand something about the way I think, it rather is an intimate thing to share. At the end of the day I am picking my own post topics and I should be the one who is proud of this text you are reading.

Today, therefore, I decided to write about being young and “stupid”, how the media and grown ups perceive the future generations. I got inspiration for this just yesterday when I remembered the word that were once said to me, not so long ago.

Well, someone older said to me and one of my friends: You young people are just rebels without a right cause, you want everything to be the way you think it should be and the other way is wrong. What was said isn’t that bad or far away from the truth when you take it out of the context, but let me show you why was this sentence said to make you understand what I am trying to talk about today.

We were discussing gender roles, feminism and homophobia with someone twice our age who is also a female (important for the rest of the text, not trying to imply anything else). These words were said after me and my friend stated how women are not payed the same, they are discriminated and have a harder time to gain the deserved respect. They  were also said on the topic of gay marriage as something that should be normal and a constitutional right.

If you have been following my work for some time you know how passionate I am about those topics. I am opinionated and vocal, but understanding in a way that I do not try to make someone understand me or what I am standing for. However I deserve and ask for some respect, and I am not going to have it any other way. Of course the “other side” does the complete opposite, this time trying to convince me that there is nothing to do there, it is how it’s been for years and how it clearly should be. That is why I am standing against every single word said in that opening sentence. That is why I am talking about this today.

That person tried to tell me to stop fighting for something I believe in, for something that so many other great people do. She told me to give up. She told me to “grow up”. But I will say this right away, if giving up on humanity,on equality and fighting for what’s good means growing up, I wish never to grow up. If it means to be smaller, to forget, to shut up and watch all of these things happening without doing anything, I am here forward promising that I won’t grow up. Never, in that way.

What about pain?

Does the best art come from the worst pain?

If my mind is clearer than tell me,
why do these letters feel heavier to write?

I am thinking more rationally, aren’t I? 
Then why to I despise everything I write?

If love describes my life, 
why does fear reek from my art? 

Tell me why do I feel incompetent
without my pain, my crazy?

How can it define me, 
how can it be this visible?

Am I me without pain?

Am I an artist, a writer? 
Without pain!

February favourites

So, last favourites did pretty well and I decided to continue this little series for as long as I have something new to show you. This months favourites are pretty much what I got for my birthday post, since most of the products I got like that. But, without any more rambling let’s start.

 

img_3870-1 Real Techniques Limited Edition Multitask Set 

One of the birthday gifts I got, and fell in love with immediately. This set comes with 3 amazing brushes and a case that can be used as a brush holder. I know it isn’t that cheap or affordable but you can use it for everything. I use the multitask cheek brush for my foundation and concealer, the multitask face brush for my compact powder and multitask eye brush for my everyday eye makeup look. What I love about them is that they come with instructions for what do you use which and also Sam & Nick, have tutorials for every set out there.  So helpful!

 

img_3879-1

Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Highlighter in 100

My friend clearly know that I love makeup and they got me this amazing highlighter from Maybelline. I don’t use it everyday but I do use it weekly. I love the shimmer I get from it and how easy it is to apply it. Just dab it a few times above your cheekbone and blend it quickly, it’s that easy! The shine look very natural and pretty.

 

img_3880-1

Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub 

The first contact with Lush Lip Scrubs I had, was with the Christmas edition one and I love it. So, when I used it up, I decided to get a new one and picked this one at their store. It works the same as the previous one but has a completely different taste. This one is the most unique one out of their lip scrub range because it is both  sweet and salty. The taste is definitely something you have to get use to, but I clearly love it since it is in my favourites. I use it every time I am wearing a lipstick, especially before darker matt ones.

 

img_3886

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in 365

I think I already talked about my love for the colour burgundy, so it comes at no surprise that one of my favourite lipsticks ever is this one from Maybelline called Plum Passion.I love how it looks on, it moisturizes and lasts for a long time. Dark purple lipstick are usually what I go for especially in cold months. I wrote about my favourite dark purple lipstick in an old blog post where this one is featured, so if you are interested in that click here!

 

img_3882-1Catrice Multi Matt Brush in 010

I have been using this blush for about a year now. Switching from the first shade in 010 to the slightly darker 020 one, all year around as seasons pass by. I love it so much, but I have to say for colder months I like the this lighter version a bit better on my fair skin tone. It gives you a bit of colour with just one quick apply. The multiple colours give you various choices, I usually blend all of them together in circular motion with an angled brush and simply apply it on my cheeks. The plus is the affordable price and it being matt since my skin is oily after just a few hours. No touch ups needed.
img_3881-1

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 

I feel like I have been using this since it just came out in my country. I tried a lot more cleansers and micellar water from different brands and Garnier also but nothing really works as good as this one so I always get back to it. It is really great for sensitive skin and it doesn’t leave my skin red after cleaning my face as a lot of other do. It last about 3+ months, since I do use makeup almost every day. It is quit affordable especially comparing it with other drugstore products.

 

img_3883-1

CV Makeup Wipes

I discovered these makeup wipes this summer and every time I have a chance on repurchasing them I do. Makeup wipes are so great for those lazy nights when you just do not one to deal with your everyday makeup cleansers. I like them a lot better than the Nivea ones that can often be really harsh on my skin and leave me red and even itchy. This brand is, I think, exclusive for Muller store, so if you have one near definitely go there and find yourself these wipes. There are more types and I use these which are for younger than 25. They have a great scent and leave my skin looking fresh and clean. Also the price is amazing, almost half price of the Nivea ones.

 

img_3894

Shoebox Burgundy Boots 

Also the showcase of me loving burgundy. And the only velvet thing I have in my house, and the only exception to my do not wear velvet rule. Look at them, they are so cute and pretty. I got them in November while I was in Zagreb and they were on an insane sale, so I could justify the 10th pair of boots I would now own. I just started wearing them intensely and I have been getting a lot of compliments since they are kind of the first thing you see when I walk in a room (have in mind that I am usually only wearing all black 🙂 ). A great investment and contribute to my wardrobe.


That will be it for my February favourites. It was the shortest month and I still had something to show you, we will see if I will do the same for the following one. I like to see what are your favourite things from last month and maybe even take up on trying the things you mention! Thank you for you attention.

Mood board for February

page

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover).
The mood board of the month is going live on the last Monday of that month!

So first thing I have to say is that I am 18! My birthday was on 18th of February and you can read a bit about it in my previous post here.

I developed a habit to talk about my makeup look of the month in every mood board for the past few months, so I am going to tell you again. I got a new highlighter and have been loving it, so that with a shimmer pink eye-shadow and eyeliner is pretty much all I do. 

Lip colours I usually use are either dark purple/burgundy or like nude mac lipsticks. No in between really, especially in winter and fall. 

I miss having that urge to dance all the time that I have lost in my depression period, a few years ago. 

I love flowers and bouquets, roses mostly. And I got a few of them for my birthday 🙂 !

Since I have been seeing the fishnet trend everywhere lately, I also decided to get me some. I hope you will get an Outfit Inspiration post this spring with this trend.

Cereal has been more common in my diet this month, and that made me remember how much I actually miss eating cereal since I went through a phase of not eating it for a great while. 

I really want to do some portrait photography with a real camera and all. I hope that this particular wish will come true soon.

In general

Saturday morning. 7 AM. Great storm and rain everywhere. Just as it was on that same date 18 years ago when I was born. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

The weather made a full circle in those 18 years to welcome me to something that is legally looked at as adulthood. Even though I woke up feeling just as I do every morning, tired and sleepy 😉 , nature made its best effort to remind me of this event that happens only once in your lifetime, oppose to 40th birthday which you can have multiple times 😀 !

I was blessed to be born in an amazing family that spoils me to death with both, attention and presents. I am blessed to have made wonderful friends along the way who are my strength and ultimate support. And last, but certainly not the least, I was too blessed by meeting my partner in life and crime this young and to have that kind of love this early.

No matter the circumstances that made my life hard and at some times unbearably painful I am grateful for and I appreciate everything that happened to me because those things have brought me to this moment. They brought me these people in my life and prepared me for everything that will happen next.

In past few years I have grown so much as a person. I became brave enough to live my true self and met my partner who helped me to make ease with my appearance and finally like the way I look. I earned my confidence, I learned to love and to be loved. I got calmer, my anxiety attacks are not so common anymore. I am funnier, and I have no idea how that happened.  I changed my style to meet how I am feeling inside. A lot more happened, a lot more growth, a lot more happiness.

I guess that you learn how to be happy and how to feel the happiness surrounding you as the years go by. You learn to appreciate everything that has happened and not to fear the things that are going to happen. I don’t have a magic recipe, no one does. But I know one thing, with the right people everything is easier. 

This post is a thank you to all those people who make my life easier, better, funnier, prettier. To the people who have brought me back the childlike will to live and to explore all the things this life has to offer, to be happy for what is going to happen and for what has already happened. Thank you from the bottom of my small heart, I love you!

January Favorites

img_3532

Hello, new year, new feature here on my blog. This is my first favourites post and I hope you will like it enough for me to post a February one. I know I am a bit late, this usually goes up the first few days of the month, but last week and a half I was crazy busy!

Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer – This is a budget friendly concealer from a drugstore that is also so good that I am on my 4 tube I think. It is long-lasting since it’s waterproof and give such an amazing coverage. I had a lot of Borjuois concealers and this one is just as good, but a lot cheaper! I am in shade 02, and sadly this is the darkest shade and I am very fair so I can use both the 02 one and 01.

NYX Lid Lingerie – This is probably the best makeup item I have ever purchased. I love the formula of this, it goes on so smoothly and stays all day. Mixing with other shades is also very good, but on its own it also looks beautiful with the shimmer it has. I have it in the shade Rose Pearl and it is my go to eye makeup look, especially when I am running late. I just put it on, some mascara and done!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation– New foundation in 2017. Actually I am on the hunt for the perfect new foundation and this one was the first on my hunt! It is better than my old Bell one, but still not the perfect match for me. It gives great coverage, but you do not feel it on your face. For me it is not so long-lasting it should be and I even use a compact powder over it. If you do not like scents in your makeup stay free from this one, if you are okay with that than you should try it for yourself if you have normal/dry skin. For us with oily skin it isn’t what we are looking for, but still a good foundation.

Maybelline the Colossal Go Extreme! Mascara – Well, I got this mascara for Christmas as a present and have been using it ever since. It is my new favourite mascara, so similar to the Rocket Volume Mascara from Maybelline which I loved so much when it came out! It darkness my lashes and gives it great volume and lengths. Perfect!

Seventeen Clear Skin Tea Tree Oil Cream – I got this while I was in Greece, because I forgot to bring my cream with me on the travel. Just stumbled upon a small drugstore and saw the label and words clear skin and bought it. I used it there and forgot about it when I came home. So, how I started using it? Well, I got a case of post-holiday acne and used this just to try it again and I saw the results over just one night. After 3 days of using it once a day my acne cleared up completely. Amazing cream, it is a moisturizer and it balances your skin and it was pretty inexpensive if I remember correctly.

Maybelline Affinitone Foundation – Thanks to the cream my skin has become so amazing that I didn’t need a full coverage foundation on those easy days when I am not wearing makeup for most of the day. On those days I have been using this foundation from Maybelline and it feels so amazing on my skin, it stays for 5/6 hours without touching up or even putting on a compact powder. It is so light and it covers just enough.

Catrice Eyeliner Pen – I am impressed with the brand Catrice, so impressed that on the advise of my friend I got their eyeliner pen to try it out. And it is so amazing, easy to use and long-lasting, it stand all crying and cry-laughing I do. In January I did a lot of cat eyeliner and with this it is so easy to do it, I haven’t ever done a flick so easily.

Givenchy Electric Rose – This is a limited edition perfume that through years has become my signature perfume. The first time I finished the bottle I figured that I would have a hard way of finding another one, and that was true. Untill I found one in an airport tax-free fragrance store and I was thrilled.  It passed 4 months and I almost finished this one. I am not going to try to explain the fragrance, but you can read my review about it here!

Syoss Anti-Grease Dry Shampoo– This has been my saviour more than once, since my hair pretty much become greasy after one day. For me it is a better product than Batiste one’s but I don’t quit like the scent it has, but a little perfume in my hair after brushing this out fixes everything!

Deborah Lipstick – I have already talked about this product before. One of the things I mentioned is that it s pretty much the only shade of red I can possibly bear to wear on my lips. This is Deborah lipstick from their line of Red lipsticks, and it is in number 3. It has a nice shimmer that is barely visible and it looks amazing!

MAC lipstick – Also already raved about this one in my MAC Mini Collection. This is Sophisto and it also has a shimmer in it, but it is a rich burgundy colour which goes with most of my clothing. And have I mentioned I love burgundy a bit too much?


That would be all for January favourites! I hope you liked it and that you want to see February Favourites in half a month, be sure to comment your favourite products from beginning of this year as well.

Guest post: Equality

Hi! Let me introduce myself! I am Annie. I’m a 21-year-old psychology student. It’s a pleasure to publish my writing on Magdalena’s blog.
You might think I’m just a girl who lives in her lice little world doing her makeup and suff as mainly that’s what I write about on my blog.
However, I’m not ignorant towards the problems out world faces everyday. As much as I enjoy talking about my favourite eyeshadow palette, I believe we should never keep quiet about issues like inequality.
I hope you’ll enjoy this little piece that I wrote and I’m sure more of this kind of writing will be featured on my blog page. 


As a straight white woman I can say that I’m privileged. I’ve never been bullied, I’ve always had everything I needed to live a stable life. However I come across discrimination on a daily basis. Just like everyone else in the world. The problem is that most of the people just ignore it when they aren’t the ones the discrimination is towards. Just imagine this situation: you’re just chilling with your friends and one of them says a homophobic/racist/ anti-female comment, everyone laughs at it.You know deep down that what they’re saying is not great, but will you do anything about it? Will you take the time and effort to try to convince them that what they’re saying is horrible? Probably not.Because it’s easier to avoid conflict.It’s easier to accept that that’s just the way they are. I was like that all my life, so I’m not judging you. But a few months ago I decided that I’m gonna stand up for myself in any situation that violates the values I represent. Even if it means that your friends look at you in a weird way and don’t understand why are you being “so dramatic”.

768cbc7fde31d46f04cfc8b45c98498d

The truth is a lot of people don’t even think about others and what they are going through. They’re just living their fucking privileged lives making comments about people based on their skin, sexuality, religion. But does these things really matter? I just literally don’t understand. Just WHY do people have to be such assholes? I could cry every time I think about what some people experience everyday.I believe it’s hard enough for them to realise that they’re different from most of the people without being made fun of and being called in disgusting names.

Last year’s election had a bigger impact on me than I’d thought it would. If you voted for Trump I can’t understand you, I just can’t. It’s not about being uninformed. It’s not about your political views. It’s about choosing to be ignorant about discrimination. It’s about choosing a racist, homophobic, anti-female person to be in the most powerful position in America. I’m not angry with Americans, I’m just disappointed in humanity. I’m not American, one of my distant relatives lives there, but I don’t have direct contact with America. Although, I still cried for days after the election. Then I realized it’s not the way to deal with it. You have to find faith in humanity again and believe that with an open heart and with kindness YOU can make a change. Even if it just means trying to convince someone racist/homophobic/etc. in your surroundings that what they’re thinking is not okay. Start tomorrow, make YOUR voice heard, stand up for yourself and for EVERYONE who’s being oppressed!


Thank you all for reading Annie’s post and thank you Annie for doing this with me! Go and check out her blog and be nice enough to follow her and leave some comments. Here is a link to her blog where you will soon find my post on equality!

Mood board for January

page.jpg

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover).

New year, new beginning, new changes!

First of all, new schedule! Now I am posting every Monday ( or at least trying to post every Monday)!

On winter break I got hooked on this new TV series Conviction! It is soooo good!

When we are on the subject of TV series I have to mention one of my new favourite shows Quantico and its leading lady Priyanka Chopra.

This winter I got into wearing beanies and scarves! Got a new beanie for Christmas from someone special and I have been wearing it everywhere. Just take a look at my instagram, you’ll see.

I don’t think I ever told you that I cannot possibly sleep with my socks on, not even in the coldest winter days.

I sometimes forget how much I actually know about egyptian mythology.

I noticed that I buy too much shirts with written stuff on it. And I am not mad about it!

Since I am in a look for the perfect prom dress I decided to keep up with this Award season watching the red carpet presented by E! .

Feelings

A lot of people run away from their own feelings, including myself and maybe you – the person reading this. Running away can be detected in various ways. You can pretend what you are feeling isn’t real. Also, you can refuse to fathom your feelings, to split it to their essence. Of course you can always literally run away from your feelings. You can “block” yourself from feeling something, or better said, you can block yourself from showing those feelings.

It’s a shitty world, I know. Everyone wants to protect themselves from getting emotionally hurt. But think about it, if you do these things to prevent yourself from getting hurt, feeling hurt, pain, sadness, unhappiness etc. you are also limiting the amount of great feelings that make our life worth living.

Tears are not just from sadness, are they? Laughing or smiling isn’t always a showcase of a happy emotion. Pain isn’t necessarily bad. Forget now for just a second what you learned about positive and negative emotions and feelings. Life is about finding exceptions to the rules. No one should go through life looking it in black and white, defining something as purely good or purely bad without any mix between those contrasted emotions. So dare to feel.

I think this is enough said about this topic, and I hope I left you wanting to think about what I said here. If you want to add something or even tell me I am wrong, I welcome you to do so in the comments bellow.
Thank you for reading!

What’s in my bag? / Bag essentials

img_3082

img_3079

So this is the lovely Nohaa bag I talked about in my last Outfit Inspiration post! I love it so much because it burgundy and it is very spacious, you can see from the photos all of the things that I can fit in it. This is the biggest handbag I own so I really use up all the space it offers. Today I am going to talk about my bag essentials through a What’s in my bag post! I will start from left to right describing the things on the photo.

Wallet, money and cards.
This Guess wallet has been my best friend for almost a year. I got it whilst I was in Venice and it has already been featured in so many posts. It is black and leather, a timeless combination. I know that if you carry a handbag you do not really need a big wallet inside but I like to do that nonetheless and this bag offers me the possibility to do that!

Mascara
You never know what can happen to ruin your makeup so I always like to put some makeup in my bag. This is my new favourite mascara from Maybelline. It is The Colossal Go Extreme! Leather Black mascara. I am not going to describe it any more since I plan to do a full review soon.

Lip balm
It is my favourite Baby Lips Electro in Berry Bomb from Maybelline. I like to keep this in my bag because my lips can get dry and I like to put it over any lipstick I already have on to make it a bit glossy and more durable.

Lipstick
You always need to reapply your lipstick so I also keep my favourite lips of the season in the bag aswell as m lip balm. Sometimes I just put the lipbalm over the lipstick to make my lips look better but sometimes I need to reapply the lipstick first. Girly problems 😀 Right now my favourite lipstick is Maybelline’s COLORsensational in 342 Mauve Mania. It’s a darker pink, perfect for everyday and occasion.

Mirror
For reapplying your makeup or just taking a look at what a mess you are, you are going to need a little pocket mirror. This was a souvenir from my aunt, she got it for me from Rovinj. I like the little design on it and the fact that it has a regular and magnifying mirror.

Compact powder
I have oily skin and after some time my face is so shiny that I don’t even know how people can look at me as I am shining like a Christmas bulb. That is the reason why I keep this compact powder from Catrice in my handbag. It is the All Matt shine control powder in 015 Natural Beige!

Hair ties and bobby pins
I like to have my hair up when I am at home because my hair irritates me often. So when I am going out I always throw some hair ties and bobby pins if I ever decide to pull my hair up if it just gets too much for me to handle.

Planner
This is the year I decided to be a little more organized and to keep my planner by my side at every time. This is the most famous Croatian planner that comes in a few different looks. It is called zenskirokovnik (translated to womensplanner) on instagram so you can check their page out!

Earphones
Music is an important part of my life and my earphones are a necessity. It helps me get somewhere faster and get through my anxiety attacks so I always keep them near. These are the original Iphone earphones from Apple in their packaging.

Pen
There are just somethings that you always need to keep with you so I always carry a pen, nonetheless if I have my planner or not. That way if you are in a coffee shop and want to do some crosswords you do not need to ask the cute waiter/waitress for a pen. This one was a Christmas present and it is a Gorjuss pen.

Gum
Also a necessity that I think you always need to carry with you. This pack is great because it is a mini Airwaves pack that is so cute and so perfect for a handbag, it has 4 gums instead of 8 which I think is enough.

So this is it for my bag essentials. I hope you enjoyed reading this and that you find at least a bit useful or amusing.

My Fav’ – Outfit Inspiration

img_2777-1

img_2783-1

img_2788-1

Jacket: Zara Trafaluc Outerwear
Jeans: Zara Woman
Necklace: Bershka
Shirt: Bershka
Boots: Schuh
Bag: Nohaa

 

As promised here is the second Outfit Inspiration this post, a week after the last one. Also I ‘promised’ you photos of lesser quality than usual since the camera kind of tricked me, but it is still visible enough when edited. Enjoy in this post nonetheless!

This outfit is really one of my favourite ones yet. It is kind of grunge but romantic grunge, at least that is how I perceive it. It has the smallest amount of black I ever wore and it still looks dark enough that I do not feel weird wearing COLOURS  😮 .

First we will start with this awesome and simple shirt/sweater from Bershka I just bought a couple of weeks ago. What is striking is its colour, never owned anything like it. With what my vocabulary allows me, the best I can do to describe it is to say it is a salmon pink colour. On it is written My Fav’ Sweat which I found adorable. It is warm and pretty, a good catch for winter.

Finally, I found chokers I like. These two are also from Bershka and they were in a set of five chokers total. I love it layered like this because it adds the grunge effect I talked about in the beginning and it makes this OOTD look like I spent a lot of time deciding what to wear when in fact it is just the opposite. It is probably worth mentioning I got them as a Christmas gift from my Fav’ person. You get the tittle know ?

In the spirit of new things let’s talk about my new jacket. It is from Zara and it is perfect! I didn’t own any really warm jackets before this one, so when it got too cold for my coat I ran to Split to buy one. This babe is so warm, in it has some faux fur and it has a filling. Also something that is so useful, the material outside is waterproof so rain just slides off. Great investment.

Also my jeans are from Zara. A perfect colour and the perfect fit. Already mentioned in previous posts so I am not going to go in details again. These boots from Schuh have been mentioned in previous posts as well, so all I am saying they are in perfect condition after almost 2 year since its real leather.

And now about the new addition to my accessories collection. This beautiful bag was also a gift from Christmas from one of the designers herself. Nohaa is a Croatian brand you all should check out, they have awesome stuff! They have an instagram and Facebook page, I am not sure but I think they do international deliveries aswell. Not an ad, even though I am not so biased since I actually know the duo that create them. The bag is burgundy and you get two leather tassels that you can put on both sides of the bag but I opted for only one!

For more day-to-day looks, makeup and other be sure to follow me on my two instagrams (links on the right side and/or under this). Also for previews of my posts and notices about when something is out! Thank you for reading, I’ll see you in my next post and I for sure hope you are going to be there again!!

Baby it’s cold outside – Outfit Inspiration

Jeans: Topshop moto
Shirt: Pull & Bear
Shoes: Puma Suede Platforms

2017 is here! Even though this has been shot about a month ago it is the first post of the year. I thought it was appropriate to begin with an Outfit Inspiration post since I haven’t posted one for the winter season. If you want to check other Outfit Inspirations posts click here!

This Outfit Inspiration is about an edgy way to stay warm in those cold winter months. It is a bit sporty but kind of elevated to look smarter. The show of the OOTD is this military green hoodie from Pull & Bear. I got it whilst I was in Zagreb and let me tell you one thing this is the warmest and the comfiest shirt ever. It is like wearing a blanket! It keeps you warm no matter what and because it is baggy you can wear it over a shirt and go out without an outerwear. What I like about it the most is that it’s distressed and ripped up a bit and on the hood it says Hold on to me.

Next are my beloved Topshop moto jeans that look like leather but are cotton. Probably the best purchase I ever made. Oh, those London days, please bring me back to London! This jeans look great with everything and they are so expensive looking (they weren’t cheap either :’) ),  and I wish I can get another pair like these babes. If you have seen something similar please tell me!

And lastly the pair of shoes I have wanted since their came out! Red suede platforms from Puma are probably my ideal shoes ever. Considering how tiny and short I am these platforms are made for me! I haven’t got any red shoes so the colour also perfect. I cannot even tell you how much I actually love these shoes. Just know that when I saw them in a window from a shop in Zagreb I screamed a little and almost started crying. That’s how much I am obsessed!!!

So this is it! A quick and short first post, but I hope you like it. I already have prepared a new Outfit Inspiration post for next week, the photos turned out a bit blurry so when you see it pretend you didn’t! A preview of the outfit you can se on my instagram (a pic on my blog instagram, and a snap on my personal instagram!) links are on the side and just below this!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

2016!

I know this year has been particularly bad when it comes to the whole world, but I think every single person here can state at least a few little things that happened in their lives that they would like to remember as years pass by.

Here is a list my favourite things from 2016 (not in any order) :

  • I got a belly button piercing.

  • I had a great summer with a lot of going out nights.

  • I went to Zagreb to see Justin Bieber on his Purpose tour.

  • I lost about 5 kg.

  • I began wearing my hair down.

  • I celebrated a one year anniversary.

  • I traveled to more than 5 countries.

  • I am finally wearing beanies and chokers.

  • I went to so many beautiful and great restaurants.

  • I got too drunk for the first time and last!

  • I really stepped up my photography and instagram game.

  • I stopped thinking badly about my body and went to a beach after 2 years of not going.

  • I started dressing into clothing that actually shows and compliments my body. (getting more confident)

 

Now tell me one thing that it most memorable for you. In the comments! Quick  🙂

Mood board for December

page.jpg

 

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover).

Coffee, tea and soup in a mug are my favourite friends this winter!

I am one of those people who do not mind wearing a bra, I kind of like it even. I am not that person who cannot wait to get home to take the bra off. Is that weird?

Only thing I know for sure about my prom dress is that is going to be burgundy, and it might have a bare back but will see.

I love knee-high socks for winter. Simple but stylish.

I miss visiting galleries so much. There is just something so comforting for me when looking at paintings.

My go to makeup this months is, sparkly rose gold and brown eyes with a darker lip.

Keeping my hair in a messy ponytail at home has become a new ritual.

I got a lot of new stuff for Christmas, including three new beautiful bags.

Mini MAC collection/haul

This will be just a short post about MAC lipsticks I own! Not really going into a detail review, but rather just some necessary information. 


  1. Rich & Restless – it’s a retro matte liquid lipcolour that is really intensely pigmented and it kind of looks like orange and pink when it’s on. It is not a shade for everyone, but the consistency and lasting of this matt liquid lipstick is amazing. It is not drying and it stays forever, but however there is no way you can put any other product over it because it smudges into a weird-looking thing. If you are not too fond of using more than one lipstick and layering, I definitely recommend you to try these matte lipcolours.

  2. Viva Glam II – the first thing I got from MAC is this beautiful shade. What is really amazing about it not just looking at the not traditional packaging but the red and black combo you can see,  is that every cent from the Viva Glam lipsticks goes to MAC’s AIDS Found. Definitely a perfect nude colour that is not as pinkish as the Velvet Teddy, but still looks great on. This is a satin lipstick which means it is semi-matte, so definitely a perfect starter lipstick!

  3. Velvet Teddy – a shade everyone is crazy about, for a good reason. It is matte and not drying and it doesn’t look that matte because the formula is great, so nourishing and rich. Perfect soft pink colour that goes with every make up look, and looks amazing on all skin tones. Grab it the next time you go to MAC, especially since it is usually sold out.

  4. Sophisto – probably my favourite one. The lustre formula (semi-gloss finish) looks great on. It is shiny and a bit glittery with a hint of purple. If you are beginning to wear purple lipstick this is the one you should start with if you want to go gradually since it’s kind of clear, meaning that it resembles a bit more pigmented purple lip balm (for example Maybelline’s Baby Lips in Electro).

Why I love Christmas?/ Christmas series 2016

In my last year’s Christmas with Small Town Blogger I expressed my love for Christmas, but never really explained why do I actually love Christmas. So, for the first post in my this year’s series I will try to explain exactly that!


So my story starts two Christmases ago. A dark time in my life. The time I did talk about before. If you have been with me since the beginning you would know that I have anxiety for many years now. And also that I suffered from depression previously, 2/3 years ago.

As a child everyone loves Christmas, whether it is for the Santa, gifts or family time. But later the whole magic of Christmas bursts like a bubble and now all of sudden you treat Christmas like any other day. But I kind came to my senses properly because I was depressed. Let me explain it further and you might understand what I mean.

While I was depressed of course I try to hide it away from my family and friends. (Not a good decision by any means but it is what I did.) So, I was empty inside for the longest time and to keep any will to live I began to obsess with Christmas. I was all in with the decorations, gifts, the Christmas spirit. And at one point it actually started making me kind of happy, as happy as a person with depression can be, obviously.

I blame it on Christmas magic. So in that honour I still go all in every year after that one. And I will for as long as I keep that memory, keep in mind I do not forget easily. My Christmas tradition came from  one of the darkest parts of my life and for me to make it into something good took a lot of strength. And yeah, that is my reason. Do you have yours?

Mood Board for November

page.jpg

I have been doing mood boards for over a year now, the concept is me giving some information about what I did that month that is connected with this photos (that I rebloged onto my Tumblr, if you want to check it out it’s girlonfire-youtube-lover).

Cannot wait to get a rose tattooed. Probably the same place on the photo! Very soon (if you consider 2 and a half months soon).

Finally the fall colours set in my hometown.

Thinking about my prom dress. Right now I think I will have an open back and a burgundy dress, but I will keep you updated. 

Just started to wear my coat daily. It has just gotten that cold here!

This month I found out that I make a killer Oreo frappe/milkshake (photos on my insta!)

Would some of you be interested in seeing my mini MAC collection? I have maybe 4 products but still.

I am planning maybe doing Christmas with Small Town Blogger this year again, but only have maybe 2 ideas. Any suggestions?

I got some interesting wardrobe pieces while I was in Zagreb. I might do a winter lookbook or at least one or more outfit inspirations! 

Decorating for Christmas this weekend. I know to most of you it is too soon, but to me (and my other Christmas enthusiast) it is too late!

Scary future

I am at a place in my life where I have to decide what I want to be. The deadline for that decision is coming so soon that I can feel it even and I still do not know what to sign up for.

It is so scary having to decide your future through just one thing. It is so scary having to decide it while you are not even 18. It is so scary to decide what will you do for the rest of your life.

For the longest time I have known I want to be a forensic anthropologist and that I wanted to study for that abroad in UK. But I crossed UK as a country of my future education at some point of last year. I am not 100% sure why. It is probably a mix of things. A mix of feeling unwanted and unimportant due to the new law they brought, finding and building relationships I cannot bear to break with the distance, finding happiness in the form I never thought I could. Life happened and I moved on. I still want the same job but to get it here is a different story, so I began with a blank slate keeping my dream somewhere close where I can always reach for it.

I have grown, I know that. I have learned so much this past year and I am happy where I am at. And now my next move is what? Something that is going to keep making me happy and that is going to allow me keeping the things and people, I cherish the most in my life, by my side.

So what is exactly that move, you are asking me? Well, you’ll find out as soon as I do.
I am optimistic and hopeful, so I would like to pass that onto you, everyone who is reading this.

Cliff

There is a cliff. One that I walk by everyday. It is so near where I live and I usually pass by it with my little dog right beside me.

There is a cliff. One that is very high. It gives a spectacular view on the sea that I learned to cherish as a child.

There is that cliff. One that always stood there, since I remember. It didn’t change but I did.

There is that one cliff. That one which, when I walk by it, shows me how well I deal with my life.

You see on some days I childishly admire the view and on others I admire the fall.
