Melkior Pink Touch

Melkior a lansat de curand un kit de manichiura Pink Touch, care vrea sa le aminteasca femeilor un lucru extrem de important: autoexaminarea lunara a sanilor. Astfel, Pink Touch este mai mult decat o manichiura. Este un simbol, un intreg ritual de frumusete care ne aminteste ca autopalparea sanilor si controalele medicale periodice ar trebui sa fie o preocupare de-a noastra, asa cum este manichiura. Depistarea precoce a cancerului de san creste semnificativ rata de supravietuire si consultul mamar, mamografia si ecografia ne vin in ajutor. 

Cum se palpeaza corect sanii?
Avem nevoie de trei degete: aratator, mijlociu si inelar. Recomandarea Melkior pentru aceasta manichiura este sa aplicam fundita roz pe aceste trei deegte pentru a nu uita acest aspect. Dupa varsta de 20 de ani, fiecare femeie ar trebui sa isi palpeze lunar sanii. Momentul optim este din ziua 5 pana in ziua 7 dupa inceputul menstruatiei. Femeile la menopauza pot efectua autopalparea in orice zi. Sanii se palpeaza cu pulpa celor trei degete, la dus, cu ajutorul gelului de dus si cu bratul ridicat. Se palpeaza intreaga suprafata a sanului, pana in axila. Palparea se repeta si in pozitie culcata, cu un sul sub umeri. Trebuie acordata atentie oricarui nodul sau induratii. 

Pink Touch dovedeste ca esti o persoana responsabila si informata. Este un subiect de conversatie. Uneste femeile din intreaga lume si transmite un mesaj foarte important.
Am creat si eu o manichiura cu acest kit si am fost foarte multumita de ojele ce le contine. Sunt extrem de pigmentate dupa un singur strat si rezista bine pe unghii. Am aplicat la suprafata top coatul transparent. 
Va provoc pe toate sa realizati o manichiura roz si sa transmiteti mai departe acest mesaj!

Check print nail art

Am I the only one who is completely in love with the check print lately? I am desperate after all those blazers, skirts, pants and even shoes. And seeing that Born Pretty has a stamping plate with check prints made me order it right away. 
For this manicure I started with a nude base colour and then I stamped the design from BPL-041 stamping plate using black stamping nail polish, also from Born Pretty. I finished with Seche Vite top coat. Pretty easy, right?
I intend to create more versions of this manicure and different types of check prints, so please don't hate me if you're going to see plenty of these.
Do you like them as much as I do?

Carbon Coco - Natural teeth whitener REVIEW

Today I'll write about my experience with teeth whitening. A few months ago, I used Crest whitestreeps which did their job pretty well. They whitened my teeth at least two or three tones but, of course, I needed something to maintain the colour. I heard a lot about natural teeth whitening with activated charcoal so I decided to give it a try. I chose the Ultimate Carbon Kit from Carbon Coco, that contains a jar of activated charcoal powder, a toothpaste with activated charcoal and a toothbrush for applying the two. There are also other kits on their website and they offer free international shipping. It is recommended that you use it at least two weeks for visible results.  

The first step is applying the charcoal powder on the teeth and brushing it for three minutes. The powder has a neutral taste. You have to be careful with this one because the black powder spreads everywhere. Then you rinse it off and move to step two.

Step two is brushing your teeth with the charcoal toothpaste. This one has a pleasant mint taste. You'll have to use it for another three minutes. Then you rinse it off and you're done.

I've used it once a day for two weeks and I still have 3/4 of the toothpaste and the jar of powder is almost full. You need a very small quantity of the powder for all the teeth so I think that I'll be able to use it for a long period of time. 

And now you're probably curious if this really works. The pictures below are made after using the kit for two weeks. Both the before and the after pictures are took in the same lightning. You can see that there are good results. My teeth are a tone whiter. 
All in all, I'm satisfied with this product and I'd warmly recommend it to you. I think it's perfect to use for maintaining the teeth white after using the Crest whitestreeps, as this is a natural method that doesn't harm them at all.

Aztec nail art

Today I'll show you another easy manicure that takes little time to do. For this aztec or tribal nail art, I started with Essence - 67 Love me like you do as a base colour. This one became my favourite colour to wear on my nails lately, I think you've seen it a lot in my insta stories. After it dired, I applied some water decals from Born Pretty store. I applied different patterns from the same sheet and achieved this look. I sealed everything in using clear top coat and that was it. I told you it was easy! What do you think?

Accessorising black dresses

The little black dress is classic. We all wear it. Sometimes we choose a black dress when we want to be elegant, other times we just feel like wearing black without any other explanation and other times we just don't know what to wear so we choose it because we can never go wrong with black. But we don't wear it just like that - we make it even more special by accessorising it. And here I'm talking about chokers or necklaces, statement earrings, bags and shoes. I sometimes go for neutral accessories, other times I wear something very colourful with it. 
Anyway, the thing is that the same black dress can be worn in many ways and most of the times accessories make all the difference. But if you're like me, chances are that you have more black dresses with very little differences between them. And you're always looking for more. I was searching for more black dresses, of course, and found Yoins, an online store selling plenty of beautiful things at accessible prices. 
Firstly I'd like to show you some pretty dresses that I found in their party dresses for women cathegory. The first one is my favourite and what I like the most about it is its back.

Then I looked in the cathegory party bags for women and found some really cute small bags. They're perfect for parties or just for a night out and can make a simple outfit look outstanding. Lately, I look a lot at silver or metalic items and found that holographic bag (the third one) which looks quite interesting. 

No outfit is complete without women sexy shoes. I for one usually pick black shoes that go with anything, but I also love red shoes for a simple black dress. Those lace-up ones really caught my attention.
I'd love to know if you like the items I showed you and how you accessorise black dresses. Tell me in the comments section below!

FashionMia cheap swimwear

I've told you about FashionMia before and I'll tell you again. They have some really pretty items in their online store. I've been looking for some bathing suits these days and found some that I liked on their website. I already have a lot but I'm obsessed with them, so I'll share some with you in case you are like me. 
I know, it's not summer yet, but I also found some one-pieces that are perfect for going to the pool. And they're also on sale so let's move on to some pictures with the cheap swimwear.

I also found the next two that I liked a lot. I've seen them a lot on Instagram and they're at a great price on FashionMia. The one with stripes is my favourite, just imagine how it will look on tanned skin!

I also started thinking about my spring warfrobe and found these cute skater dresses. This year, over-the-knee dresses are really a thing and I think they look elegant, too. Both of them make me think of Paris, I don't know why, but I'd feel like wandering the french streets when wearing them.

Purple holo

Today I'll show you another beautiful holographic nail polish from Beauty Bigbang. This one is dark purple and looks amazing on the nails. I applied three thin coats of it and no clear top coat so that the holo will look more intense. This is fast drying, so applying three coats won't be a problem. What do you think about it?

If you decide to order anything from Beauty Bigbang, here's a 10% off discount code to use with any order -  KNAD10.

Beauty Bigbang Holographic Nail Polish

Lately I've made an obsession with holographic nail polishes and decided to order some new colours. That's how I came across BeautyBigBang, an online nail art store where you can find items in accordance with the latest nail trends. I ordered the golden holographic nail polish and used it without any other base colour. In the pictures below you can see it applied in three thin coats and the coverage is perfect. This one dires really fast so three coats is not a problem. I created an accent nail using Essence - 99 Tip Top Taupe as a base colour and then applied two stripe vinyls to create the holographic line in the middle of the nail. I finished with clear top coat on all nails but I recommend you not to do this as the holo is much more prettier without it. 

I also have a surprise for you. If you'd like to order anything from their website, here's a 10% off discount code to use with any order -  KNAD10.

New Melkior Ultrashine Lipgloss SIRENA

Saptamana trecuta am primit noul lipgloss de la Melkior - Sirena. Trebuie sa recunosc ca am fost putin sceptica la inceput, deoarece sunt obisnuita sa port mai mult rujuri cu finish mat. Insa acest gloss m-a surprins in mod placut. O sa va arat mai jos doua moduri in care il puteti purta, atat pe buze cat si pe pleoapa superioara. Mie imi plac ambele.

Prima daca cand am desfacut coletul si am vazut ca este vorba de un gloss nu m-am gandit sa il aplic pe buze, ci pe... pleoape! Imi doream de mult sa incerc 'wet eyelids', deoarece vad peste tot acest machiaj cu efect de pleoape umede si a inceput sa imi placa. Se aplica usor cu pensula si obtii un machiaj de efect intr-un minut. Cred ca este o varianta foarte buna atunci cand nu ai timp de un machiaj sofisticat, dar totusi vrei ceva care sa iasa in evidenta. 
Sirena este un gloss cu foarte multe particule sclipicioase si cu o tenta de mov. Nu este tipul acela de gloss pe care il simti foarte lipicios pe buze si care e aproape insuportabil. Are o textura placuta si vine foarte bine aplicat si pe pleoape. 

L-am incercat si pe buze si din nou, mi-a placut. L-am incercat atat simplu, cat si peste o baza nude cu tenta de mov. In pozele de mai jos am aplicat doar lipglossul, fara niciun alt ruj dedesubt. Finish-ul este natural si merge perfect pentru un 'no makeup' makeup.

Lansarea oficiala a fost astazi, iar pretul produsului este 49.90 lei. Pe langa nuanta Sirena, mai gasiti si nuanta True, cu reflexii aurii. Daca va abonati la newsletter-ul lor, veti primi pe mail un cupon de reducere de 20% pe care il puteti folosi la prima comanda. 

Ce promite noul lipgloss?
-stralucire extrema 
-buze voluptoase fara senzatie lipicioasa
-textura fina si confortabila
-aplicare usoara

Face ceea ce promite? Da, cu siguranta. Eu ma declar multumita de acest produs.

Born Pretty Chameleon nail polish

Today I'll show you two nail polishes that I recently got from Born Pretty store. I was looking at them for a long time, but don't know why I never put them in my shopping bag. I'm in love with chameleon nail polish colours and how they look on the nails because I feel like you can't get bored with them so fast. So let me tell you more about these polishes, because they come in a set. One of them is chameleon and the other one contains chameleon flakies. I applied both of them over a coat of black nail polish and applied Seche Vite top coat for some extra shine at the end. Just watch how cute are those reflexions! What do you think?

Essence - Love me like you do

Today I'll show you a very simple manicure that I like a lot. I think it's because of this beautiful base colour that I totally fell in love with. It's Essence 67 Love me like you do and I applied two coats of it. What I liked the most about it was the shiny finish. If  I let it like that, I wouldn't have needed top coat for extra shine. Still, I decided to add something more, so I went for a silver glitter nail polish which I applied only on the tips of my nails using a nail art sponge. I finished with Seche Vite top coat. What do you think?

Dresses for the perfect wedding

I think we can all imagine the stress a bride has to go through to make everything perfect for the wedding. And when we think about the perfect dress we tend to only think about the wedding dress, but there are also the bridesmaids' dresses and the flower girls' dresses and everything has to look amazing. I've recently came across an online store selling occasion dresses and thought this might be helpful for the brides out there. I'll share some of my favourites with you in case you need inspiration. 
They each come in 31 different colours so you can customize them how you like. I honestly am so over all those classic bridesmaids dresses that you see at every wedding. It's time for a little change at this chapter. 

I also found the sweetest thing on earth! Just stop for a second and admire this cute flower girl dress! Isn't it just perfect? Believe me, you'll want this girl at your wedding. 

For more beautiful dresses, just go to Dresshopau. They offer free shipping to Australia and have some eye-catchy prices!

Bijuteriile Soufeel

Astazi vin cu o discutie lejera de duminica si o sa va vorbim despre un subiect care ne incanta pe toate: bijuteriile. In urma cu aproximativ doi ani am decis sa investesc intr-o bratara si am vrut sa aleg ceva care sa ma reprezinte, o bratara pe care sa o pot personaliza. Oscilam intre Pandora si Soufeel si nu eram sigura ce sa aleg. Exista multe produse asemanatoare dar si produse unice fiecarui brand. Produsele Soufeel erau mult mai accesibile ca pret si la fel de frumos lucrate ca si cele de la Pandora, doar ca pe vremea aceea nu exista site Soufeel in Romania, ci doar site-ul international unde livrarea dureaza in jur de cateva saptamani. Asa ca mi-am achizitionat bratara si talismane Pandora, dar in timp am adaugat pe ea si talismane Soufeel, deoarece a aparut site-ul autorizat Soufeel in Romania. 

De curand am plasat o comanda pe site si vreau sa va arat ce minunatii mi-am luat. Ambele talismane pe care le-am ales sunt din categoria Prieteni si familie si pur si simplu le ador. Vin insotite de un certificat de garantie si conformitate care atesta autenticitatea si faptul ca bijuteriile sunt lucrate din argint 925. M-a impresionat atentia la detalii si finetea cu care sunt lucrate si ma gandesc sa plasez o noua comanda cat de curand. 
Avantajul pe care il are Soufeel fata de Pandora este faptul ca bijuteriile pot fi comandate online. Produsele au venit prin curier, in doua zile. In cazul in care produsele nu va plac in totalitate, le puteti returna legal in ambalajul original in decursul a 14 zile. Dar eu va promit ca o sa va indragostiti de ele in prima clipa. Iar preturile mai mult decat atractive si design-urile unice o sa va traga cu ochiul. 
Daca aveti deja o bratara Pandora la fel ca si mine trebuie sa stiti ca talismanele sunt compatibile, au aceleasi dimensiuni si arata foarte bine pe bratara. Daca nu aveti inca una dar va ganditi sa va achizitionati asa ceva, puteti sa va uitati aici pe site pentru modelele disponibile. Au atat bratari fixe, cat si flexibile. 
Dar sa nu mai lungim povestile, o sa va las cu niste poze, pentru ca nu e asa, o poza face cat o mie de cuvinte?

Urmatorul talisman pe care o sa il vedeti este de fapt un set de talismane matching, pe care il puteti imparti cu cea mai buna prietena, asa cum am facut si eu. Asa veti avea ceva care sa va aminteasca mereu de legatura voastra speciala. Poate fi si o idee minunata de cadou. 

Iar pentru voi, cititoarele blogului meu, am si o mica surpriza care stiu ca o sa va placa. 
Am un cupon de discount pe care il puteti folosi la orice comanda plasata pe site-ul
Cod reducere 10%:  KONA10
