Fall and outer layers.

fall

For all my life fall was my favourite season and there is so many reason to why is that so. Hot chocolate and tea, sweaters and boots, fall colours and falling leaves, travelling and etc.

Maybe it will interest you why do I match certain things only to fall, maybe you just want to read another one of my stupid (or not so stupid)  short writing posts, or maybe you are just so bored and you want to read something new. But, nonetheless, just keep reading – I cannot promise you a fun time but I sure hope you will have it.

I know that through all literature fall is usually a metaphor for old age or even death, but to me fall kind of represents love in it purest stage.

To me love feels comfortable like lying under the warmest blanket and drinking some hot chocolate whilst the rain is pouring down outside your window. Love is warm like your favourite knit-sweater (that is so well-worn that three generations of our family have worn it, I am not kidding). Love is pretty like all the shades of red, orange and brown you see all around yourself. Love is unique and special like that one evergreen tree you pass by every day. Love is satisfying like the sound of the leaves rustling and crackling under your feet. Love is familiar.

So my endless love for fall can be ironically explained through my own metaphor I just represented to you. But enough about me, what is you favourite season and what it represents to you? If you want you can just answer down below or even in a post (I would like to read it if you decide to do it in this form)!

Happy Fall everyone! Let’s begin wearing our favourite clothes and as many outer layers as we can 🙂 .

What I learned

So just last Monday was the first anniversary of my blog. I haven’t realized that until th notification from WordPress came congratulating me and when I saw that I started to think about how many awesome things happened within that one year of blogging so I decided to write what I learned about it and maybe that will help anyone who wants to start a blog of their own.

  1. When I started this blog I was afraid that a lot of people would mine my occasional mistakes since English isn’t my first language but no one seem to mind that in particular and a lot of people even said that my writing is just fine even not considering my circumstances which really made me more confident about my writing skills.
  2. People are generally very nice, supporting and not too judgemental. Interacting with other bloggers is one of my favourite things about having a blog on WordPress because this is a genuine community.
  3. Photos really do speak louder than words. Photography posts are maybe the most popular post I have on my blog and if you enjoy photography and have a camera you should definitely share some of your work with others. You will be surprised with the outcome.
  4. You don’t need to limit yourself when it comes to writing about just one things. You don’t need to say I am a fashion blog and just post about fashion, but you can if you want of course!
  5. The best way to approach blogging is to write what you are passionate about. Write about what you know and love or what bugs you.
  6. You can seek inspiration from other people’s posts but please say that you were inspired by them and link them to your post because other way you are stealing someone elses idea which is a great crime (at least to me).
  7. Your first post doesn’t have to be anything special. You don’t have to stress about it, just introduce yourself quickly if you don’t have anything else.
  8. Don’t worry if you didn’t get a huge feedback on your post. It is not about feedback it is about people who actually want to read what you are posting and it is about you expressing your own creativity.
  9. On the note of feedback, if you want other people to see what you are posting go and check other posts under the same tag that you had.
  10. Great way for getting into a little bit more serious blogging is participating in Daily Posts courses. I did blogging101, blogging201, writing101 and photography101 and loved it.

I guess that would be it for today. I hope you liked this post and that it helped you in some way.

Sunday Review: Bourjois Healthy Mix correcting concealer

Today on Sunday Review I am reviewing Bourjois Healthy Mix correcting concealer


page

After I used every little drop of my Wake Me Up concealer I thought that I would never find anything like it and I obviously couldn’t repurchase it since there are no place in my country that has Rimmel products.I was so wrong. When I went shopping with my friend I decided to go into the nearest drugstore and pick up a concealer and that’s when I have stumbled upon this one. I bought it and instantly fell in love with it. The consistency of it is amazing, the smallest amount which is possible to take out of the tube is enough to cover my under eye area and every other redness. It also has a beautiful sent because it apparently has some fruit mix (apricot and raspberry) in it. Coverage is amazing and on days when my skin is good I only wear this concealer. When I first saw it I though that it’s extremely small but don’t be fooled by packaging, this tube contains 10 ml and Wake Me Up concealer has only 7 ml.

Only downside is that it is somewhat expensive for a drugstore product, but it’s still affordable enough for me to actually buy it. And I also prefer the Wake Me Up concealer only for its applicator, but this is a close second.

Rate:4/5

  4. Nominate 8 blogs, let them know you’ve nominated them and link them in your post
  5. No tag-backs

Since I have already thanked those two lovelies that nominated me, now I am going to answer their questions.
From Little Snowflake:

  1. What is the biggest achievement in your life?
    I have passed the Cambridge PET test with distinction (and I was on a list with 5 other people who were best in my country) while I was still in elementary school and that gave me a little bit more confidence about my English skills and it kind of led me to having this blog.
  2. What is the place you have always wanted to visit?
    Egypt, Italy, New York and New Zealand.
  3. If given a chance to be someone else, who would you want to be (fictional/non fictional)?
    I wouldn’t want to choose to be someone else in a sense that I would be like someone who already exists. I would rather choose to change some things about myself like to be braver, calmer, anxiety and depression free etc.
  4. What part of your body would you like to change?
    My thighs and my teeth.
  5. If you were immortal, what do you imagine yourself to be/what would you be doing?
    I would travel the world since you cannot really stay at one place for too long and because I love travelling.
  6. What else do you enjoy besides your (usual) hobby?
    Besides blogging and writing I enjoy singing (whether is it any good I wouldn’t know), dancing (I danced ballet when I was younger than I danced hip-hop for about 5 years), reading and sometimes drawing.
  7. If you knew the purpose of your life, would you rather pick another path (choice will be provided), or continue the same one?
    It depends what would be the purpose, I guess.
  8. Would you prefer Diving under the sea or Space travel? And why?
    Space travel since diving under the sea seems like it would consist of a lot more complications (I don’t know why).
  9. Who would be your favorite author and why?
    I haven’t found that one person who would represent my favourite author so, I don’t quite know how to answer this.
  10. What is your favorite quote?
    It changes a lot but at the moment it’s Sometimes before it gets better/The darkness gets bigger and I did an song lyrics inspiration post about it (self-promotion much)
  11. What is your favourite song?
    Also it changes but at the moment it is Lay Me Down by the amazing Sam Smith.


From Tezzy Files:

  1. What is your biggest blogging inspiration?
    I find my blogging inspiration everywhere. Sometimes it’s from YouTube, sometimes from Tumblr and sometimes I am inspired by something that happened to me or by new pair of clothing or makeup I just got.
  2. What is your best kept beauty secret?
    Always put your perfume on your hair and it’s always good to take care of yourself because you never know who can you meet and where can you meet someone. Both are from my mother dear.
  3. Describe your personal style in 5 words.
    Simple, mostly black and grey. (I also did a post about My Style, a while ago)
  4. If you had all the money in the world, what would you be doing?
    I would enroll into any college because I wouldn’t have to worry about paying it, I would donate something to a charity and I would buy something for my mother and grandmother.
  5. List three things you’d want to have on you if you were stranded on a deserted island.
    My phone, flashlight and batteries. (Those are the first few things I could think of)
  6. Who is the one person you’d want with you on that island?
    My best friend.
  7. Name a celebrity you aspire to be.
    This is such a hard question. I honestly don’t know.
  8. The genie in the lamp grants you three wishes. What will they be?
    Of course to get unlimited amount of wishes (if that is possible), I would like to remember some memories and I would like to be happy.
  9. What is your fondest childhood memory?
    Probably family gatherings for Christmas or something like that.
  10. Name a food dish that takes you back to your childhood.
    Mash potato because I used to love it, but now I am trying everything to avoid it.
  11. What is your biggest food craving as an adult?
    I don’t know if I am considered an adult with 16 years, but I would say some pasta or chicken.

From Betty’s Boutique:

  1.  What is your favourite object?
    My phone is something I always need by my side, but I would necessarily call it my favourite object.
  2.  What do you love most about your job?
    Again I’m 16 so I don’t really have a job, although I do work summers selling ice cream and bartending a bit, and my favourite part about that job is ice cream.
  3.  Do you have a lucky number and why?
    I love number 5 and I consider it lucky for no particular reason.
  4.  What is your favourite food?
    Lasagna.
  5.  Do you have a party trick and if so what is it?
    I dance and sing, I guess.
  6.  What are you 3 favourite songs?

    Favourite TV show is hard to pick so I’ll mention a few; Bones, How To Get Away With Murder, Eye Candy etc.
    My all time favourite movie is The Da Vinci Code.

Just to clarify I will be using the second version of the rules because it’s easier, but you can do which ever you want.
