25 THINGS / 25 RZECZY

Hi!

Three weeks ago I turned 25. Since it is a quarter of a century, I decided to treat myself all year. I ended up with a list of things I want to do, achieve, learn or see before my next birthday. Here it is:

Trzy tygodnie temu skończyłam 25 lat. Ponieważ jest to ćwierć wieku, postanowiłam robić coś dla siebie cały rok. Wymyśliłam listę rzeczy, które chcę zrobić, osiągnąć, zobaczyć i nauczyć przed moimi kolejnymi urodzinami. Oto ona:

  1. See The Lion King Musical / Zobaczyć musical Król Lew.
  2. Go to Paris / Pojechać do Paryża.
  3. Get a haircut / Obciąć włosy.
  4. Pass IELTS / Zdać IELTS egzamin.
  5. Go to Dublin / Pojechać do Dublina.
  6. Start GCSE English / Zacząć angielską maturę.
  7. Apply for a UK residence card / aplikować o kartę rezydenta Wielkiej Brytanii.
  8. See Adele live / Iść na koncert Adele.
  9. Learn how to use all of the options on my blog / Nauczyć się jak w pełni używać wszystkich opcji bloga.
  10. Buy a gym membership / Kupić kartę na siłownię.
  11. Workout with a personal trainer / Ćwiczyć z osobistym trenerem.
  12. Have a Russian tutor / Mieć nauczyciela rosyjskiego.
  13. Dye my hair purple for Summer / Zafarbować włosy na fioletowo w lecie.
  14. Learn caligraphy / Nauczyć się kaligrafii.
  15. Buy a record player / Kupić gramofon.
  16. Canoe on th sea / Pływać kajakiem na morzu.
  17. Eat at one of Jamie Olivier’s restaurants / Zjeść w restauracji Jamiego Oliviera.
  18. Upgrade my phone / Kupić nowy telefon.
  19. Celebrate St Patrick Day in Ireland in 2018 / Jechać na Dzień Świętego Patryka do Irlandii w 2018 roku.
  20. Design my blog properly / Zaprojektować porządnie bloga.
  21. Have another tattoo / Zrobić kolejny tatuaż.
  22. Go to The Making of Harry Potter adventure in London / Pojechać do studia Harrego Pottera w Londynie.

Some of those things I’ve might already done. I’ve started to make that list few months ago. My goal is to make everything happen until 26 of April 2018, before my 26th birthday. I left last three positions on the list blank for the things I am not planning on doing, things that may positively surprise me. For the things that will happen, the ones I would like to remember.

Niektóre z tych rzeczy mogłam już zrobić. Zaczęłam tworzyć listę kilka miesięcy temu. Moim celem jest spełnić wszystko przed moimi kolejnymi urodzinami, 26 kwietnia 2018. Trzy ostatnie punkty na liście zostawiłam puste na rzeczy, których nie planuję , które mogą mnie pozytywnie zaskoczyć. Na rzeczy, które się wydarzą i które chciałabym zapamiętać.  

 

Have a wonderful day!
Until next one!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS / PIERWSZE WRAŻENIA

Hi!

I’ve bought a few things recently and I thought it would be good to share my first impressions with you. Some of them I’ve started to use everyday already and some I’ve tried once or twice. I ordered two of them online so I start with those.

Kupiłam ostatnio kilka nowych rzeczy i pomyślałam, że warto podzielić się moim pierwszym wrażeniem. Część z nich zaczęłam używać już codziennie, a część wypróbowałam raz czy dwa razy. Dwie rzeczy zamówiłam przez internet,  więc może zacznę od nich.

HudaBeauty

First and the most exciting thing is HUDABEAUTY Textured Shadows Palette | Rose Gold Edition ! I wanted to have it for so long but I couldn’t afford it before. When I could it was out of stock everywhere! Finally I got my hands on it this month. I used the palette twice so far and I have to say, I’ve never used shadows like those. The textured ones are so unique. The pigmentation is insane, they blend like a dream and they are crazy long-lasting. I went out with friends Saturday evening and I came back really late and TIRED ; ) so I fall asleep without taking my makeup off. I know it’s soo bad! When I woke up (I wanted to say at the morning but it was actually around 12 already) my eye makeup looked like I did it an hour before. The rest of my makeup was gone, of course, but not eyeshadows. I adore that palette!

Pierwszą i najbardziej ekscytującą rzeczą jest HUDABEAUTY Textured Shadows Palette | Rose Gold Edition ! Od dawna chciałam ją mieć, ale nie było mnie stać. Jak już mogłam sobie pozwolić na jej kupno, to była wszędzie wyprzedana! W końcu udało mi się ją dorwać w tym miesiącu. Użyłam paletki, póki co, dwa razy i muszę powiedzieć, że nigdy nie malowałam się takimi cieniami. Cały górny rząd jest bardzo wyjątkowy. Pigmentacja jest obłędna, rozcierają się jak marzenie i są szalenie długotrwałe. Spotkałam się ze znajomymi w sobotę wieczorem i wróciłam bardzo późno i bardzo ZMĘCZONA ; ) więc zasnęłam nie zmywając makijażu. Wiem, że to straaasznie źle dla skóry. Kiedy się obudziłam (chciałam napisać rano, ale w zasadzie było już koło 12) moje oczy wyglądały jakbym wymalowała je godzinę temu. Uwielbiam tą paletkę ! 

Cetaphil and Foreo

That ‘morning’ was also good to test out a FOREO Luna Play. I couldn’t wait to wash my face. To take all of the dirtiness off. A deep clean was exactly what I needed. That teeny tiny ‘brush’ is so simple and quick to use. It is made of silicone so it doesn’t hold any bacteria and it’s easy to clean. You just need to rinse it properly. I have a travel size. It’s very small but comfortable to use. I’m glad I added it to my daily routine.
Next is Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Before I’ve been using NIP+FAB Glycolic Cleansing Fix but it was a bit to harsh for my skin. I shouldn’t have been using it everyday probably. Cetaphil is known for its simple and light products. It removes all of the impurities completely being subtle at the same time. It’s fragrance-free and the packaging with a pomp makes using it faster and more simple to use. I enjoy using it with my Foreo a lot.

Ten “poranek” był również idealny żeby wypróbować FOREO Luna Play. Nie mogłam się doczekać umycia buzi. Zmycia resztek makijażu. Głębokie oczyszczanie było dokładnie tym czego potrzebowałam. Ta tycia elektryczna szczoteczka jest bardzo prosta i szybka w użyciu. Wykonana jest z sylikonu, więc nie utrzymuje na sobie bakterii i łatwo się czyści. Wystarczy dobrze wszystko spłukać. Ja mam wersję podróżną, bardzo małą, ale wygodnąłw użyciu. Strasznie się cieszę, że jest częścią mojej codziennej rutyny.
Kolejną rzeczą jest delikatny żel do mycia twarzy Cetaphil. Wcześniej używałam żelu z NIP+FAB, ale był zbyt ciężki dla mojej skóry. Prawdopodobnie nie powinnam używać go codziennie. Cetaphil natomiast jest znany ze swoich delikatnych i lekkich produktów. Żel dokładnie usuwa zanieczyszczenia, nie podrażniając przy tym skóry. Jest bezzapachowy, a opakowanie z pompką sprawia, że jest szybszy i łatwiejszy w użyciu. Bardzo lubię myć nim twarz w połączeniu ze szczoteczką Foreo.

Neal's Yard Remedies

Last purchase is skin care related as well. I am trying to take a better care of my skin recently. My skin is dry and sensitive. I used to use an avocado oil at the morning and at the evening. Unfortunately I found that it is a bit too much for my skin. I still use an oil at the evening but I needed a change for the morning. I’ve bought Neal’s Yard Remedies Rehydrating Rose Daily Moisture. It is a very thick moisturizer. Smells like roses or rather like donuts with a rose filling. It soaks into my skin very quickly. Although, I’ve used it a couple times already, it is quite hard to say if I like it or not. It didn’t do anything spectacular to my skin yet. I’ll keep using it and see if it’s worth the price (£25). If not at least a glass, simple bottle looks nice on the bathroom shelf ; )

Ostatni zakup jest również związany z pielęgnacją twarzy. Ostatnio próbuję lepiej zajmować się moją skórą. Moja cera jest sucha i wrażliwa. Do niedawna używałam oleju z awokado rano i wieczorem. Niestety zauważyłam, że jest to zbyt duże obciążenie dla mojej skóry. Nadal stosuję olej wieczorem, ale potrzebowałam zmiany w pielęgnacji porannej. Kupiłam różany krem nawilżający z Neal’s Yard Remedies. Bardzo gęsty. Bardo szybko się wchłania. Pachnie różami albo raczej pączkami z nadzieniem różanym. Mimo, że użyłam go już kilka razy, to ciężko powiedzieć czy go lubię czy nie. Nie sprawił jeszcze, że moja skóra jakoś drastycznie się poprawiła. Będę go nadal używać i zobaczę czy jest wart swojej dość wysokiej ceny (£25). Jeśli nie, to przynajmniej szklana, prosta buteleczka, wygląda dobrze na półce w łazience ; )

That is my little shopping haul with my first thoughts about the products. Hope you like it and thanks for poppin in !

To moje małe zakupowe zdobycze wraz z pierwszymi wrażeniami. Mam nadzieję, że się przyjemnie czytało i dzięki za wizytę ! 

Have a wonderful day!
Until next one!

PRODUCT OF THE MONTH | JANUARY 2017

It is not exactly the best product of January. It is something that is helping me since the past two months. The star of today’s post is… AVOCADO OIL!

img_3355

Avocado is well known for its great health benefits but did you know that it is great for your skin as well?

img_3359

It is really good at bringing the moisture back to the face. I have dry skin with blemishes.
It helps to calm it down. I use avocado oil every morning and every evening as the last step of my skin care routine. It is a very rich oil so don’t expect it to absorb into the skin quickly. The oil leaves a green film on the face but not for long. It’s gone after few minutes.

img_3361

I’ve already tried few oils for my face but avocado oil is so far the best one for me : )

Have a wonderful day!
Until next one!

New Year’s Resolutions

Hi!

It’s the year of my 25th birthday. I decided to not be scared of doing different things anymore. To not be scared of putting myself out there. Of speaking out loud about what I like, what makes me happy and what my dreams are.

This year I’ll try to be more creative and more organised. There is s many things and ideas on a back of my head. I’ve wondered how to kickoff 2017, what my plans are and it’s already almost the end of January! The time is flying!

All of that leads me to my New Year’s resolutions.

  1. Don’t let the fear stop me from doing what I really want.

I want to put myself out to internet world and I am even affraid to tell you what my resolutions are. I am not only scared what some strangers will think. It’s more about what my family think. I have big judgemental (but not in a bad way!) family. Having 4 sisters is not an easy thing. Everyone has its own, strong and different opinion. Don’t think they don’t care or they aren’t supportive. They keep asking me why I don’t write any blogposts anymore but more people ask more shy and less confident I am. I know it is probably just in my head and I need to learn how to deal with that and come out of my comfort zone.

2. Be fluent in Russian.

This one may seems completely random but I already know the basics of Russian. I don’t want to waste it. I know Cyrillic and some simple grammar. I can already speak Polish and English so it would be cool to add  third language to my list.

3. Get to know psoriasis.

If you not familiar with it, it is freakin annoying skin disease that will never go away. I have to accept it and learn it. I can relieve symptoms but it can’t be cured. I need to change my diet. Eat healthy and be really carefull with food since some of the products potentiate symptoms. I have it on my sculp so I need to be picky with my hair care as well. If we going to live together till the end of my life, I am going to make it easier.

I know it’s almost second month of 2017 already but it is never too late for new resolutions and planning. Who knows if I will not change them after few months or add new ones. The beauty is in having a purpose and finding motivation to push yourself to be better version of you everyday 🙂
Happy New Year !

Have a wonderful day!
Until next one!

AUGUST FAVOURITES 2016

Hi everyone!

I have an Agust favourites for you today. I’ve been loving few things only last month. It has been so hot that, most of the time, I didn’t even want to wear any make up.

1

I really enjoyed a Milani ‘Conceal+Perfect 2-IN-1 Foundation+Concealer’. It is very natural, medium to fall coverage foundation. For the best look for me (which is a quick, looking like skin one) I am using a RealTechnics Miracle Comlexion Sponge. The finish is a bit on a dewy side. Milani foundation is great  longwearing, everyday foundation.

2

I realized I am using things from the same companies over and over again. There is so many brands on the market so I decided to try a new one every month or so. In August it has been Natural Collection.

34

I’ve tried bronzer and cream blush. The blush is delicate, brownie pink. It is quick and easy to apply. A little goes a long way. I’ve never tried a cream blushes before and I regret I waited for so long. During the hot wheather, another layer of powder is the last thing I want to add to my face. The bronzer is soft, shimmery gold and delicate. The best thing about those products is that they only   £ 1.99 each 😛

56

It seems that all of the make up I loved the past month is afforable. There are so many golden high end highlihters but I was looking for a drugstore one for quite a long time. I found a really pretty, four-coloured shimme bricks from Seventeen. I think it would work for many different skin tones because there are two light shades and two deeper. I tend to mix two lighter colours. The darker highlights work great as an eye shadows as well. 🙂

Have a wonderful day!
Untill next one!

KYLIE JENNER NAIL POLISHES

Hi!

IMG_2595

I have to admit that I am really hooked on all of that Kylie Jenner obsession. That’s silly, I know, but her and her sisters life is very interestings to me 😀
I had to try some of Kylies’ products but I can afford nail polish only 😀 I bought few of the colours and top coat.

IMG_2586

All of the four shades I own, stay on my nails for about two days without a top coat and from obout four days with the top coat on. The lightest colour I have, ‘KOMMANDO’, is a little bit difficult to apply evenly. ‘SLAY GREY’ looks better (in my opinion) with an Essie nail polish in ‘MISS FANCY PANTS’ underneath.

IMG_2599IMG_2610

All of them are watery and thick at the same time which is a bit weird. They dry quite quickly on the nails and that’s always a plus. The colour selection is very good. She has a lot of very unusual shades in the collection. My favourite one, so far, is ‘VELVET’.

IMG_2592

It is a beautifull, matt burgundy colour with gold reflects. It’s gonna be perfect fall shade. I am definately going to buy more of the Kylies’ nail polishes.

Have a wonderful day!
Untill next one!

LIFE UPTADE

Hi everyone!

IMG_0890

How long has it been? Almost 2 months?! In my last ‘monthly favourites’ (and the only ones so far :D) I said that I am currently unemployed, well not anymore. Since the end of June I am working 7 days per week. I simply didn’t have time, energy and motivation to write.

IMG_2547

BUT I’ve started to make some changes in my life that I want to share with you. Small, little modifications that I hope will take me to a place where I am happy, focused on what I want in my life and self-satisfied.

IMG_2538

Running is one of the new things to me and Bartek, my fiancé. We wake up earlier at the morning every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I have tried running few years ago but it was a disaster. The problem was mainly my attitude and lack of right shoes. By my attitude I mean  that I only wanted to lose weight. I didn’t care about feeling better mentally as well. I wanted to see the results very quickly but it was impossible. I gave up after few weeks. Now, it is not only about being skinny but more about eating healthy, being more productive and thinking positive. I hope we will stay determined.

IMG_2556IMG_2541IMG_2555

Another thing that I am interested in is bullet journal. The idea is to make a journal that works best for you. The journal that keeps you organised and helps you achieve as much during the day as you wish. You decide how it looks like. You track your goals and progress. It is so new to me that it’s gonna be better if I leave here some links to the blogs of people who practise it for a long time.

IMG_2550

The last thing is veganism. No, I am not vegan and I am not planning to be. I am thinking about starting a series on my blog called ‘Vegan Mondays’. We all know how it is after the weekend. After all of that chocolates and eating out because we are too lazy to cook. I want my body to clear a little and get ready for a week.

There is far more ideas in my head but I am not quite sure what to do with them yet 😉 That’s all for today, stay tuned and

have a wonderful day!
Untill next one!

LIVING BY THE SEASIDE

beach essentials

It is over a year since I’ve moved by the seaside. The first thing I noticed imidiately was the air. There is something very satisfying in taking a deep breath of the fresh air.

low tideboatsumbrellas

When it comes to the beach it is ok. The reason why it’s not perfect are the shingles. It was very uncomfortable to lie down or walk on them at the beginning but I got used to that.
I am not a huge fan of swimming and all of the water related activities generally speaking. I hate them basically : D I am so scared of water which is weird couse I love to take a bath and I found it so relaxing.

me on the pierthe pierthe people's pier

The same is with walks along the pier and along the seafront. During summer time especially when the sun is shining. It something bothers me I like to spend a little time just sitting and staring at the sea. The way little waves break on the shore makes me calm.

sunrisepadlocks

Unfortunately not everything is so great about living by the seaside. There is one very negative thing. Or rather houndreds of them..

seagulls

Seagulls..

If you think you can make cute little picnic on the beach or just simply eat lunch on the beach without being noticed by those always hungry monsters you are soo wrong!
If you think you can style your hair, wear a fancy outfit and go to the club or pub without being noticed at least ones by those crapping monsters you are soo wrong!
If you think you fall asleep like a baby when your neighbours left their bags full of rubbish outside their houses at the evening and they were notices by those loud monsters you are soo wrong again!
I really, really do not like those disgusting birds. I see them eating trash every single day. The most terrible thing I saw was the seagull eating a dead pigeon. A piegeon! Ugh..

a monster

With that positive (not) side of living by the seaside I am going to finish this post. I just want to add that I enjoy living here a lot!

fisheriesfish&chips and a monster

Have a wonderful day!
Untill next one!

FACE PAINT – THE STORY OF MAKEUP BY LISA ELDRIDGE

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

a

Ok, if you don’t know who Lisa Eldridge is you should stop reading this and go google her. Now!
I hope you got onto that amazing and talented woman. If not, I really don’t know and don’t understand what are you doing with your life : D

aaa

Face Paint is a book about history of makeup. It is like school history textbook basically only more interesting, easier to read and more gripping. Lisa tells the story of cosmetics from ancient times to these days. The book is divided into two sections.

aaaaa

First part describes main and basics colours and their use in makeup thousands years ago. It’s telling you where things in your make-up bag came from. Second part on the other hand is more dedicated to beginings of big companys like Elizabeth Arden. It’s about commercial brands and pioneers, e.g. Max Factor, Charles Revson. Lisa beautifully described growth of women and their power. After each chapter she tells us a little something about her makeup muses from Royals thru models to Hollywood and Pop Stars.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I love how easily I could feel Eldridge passion while turning the pages. Her knoledge and experience called my attention. The way she writes about makeup companies that are no longer on a market make me curious. I had no idea that the makeup history is so elaborate and extremely interesting. I read everything in just two sittings and now whenever I do my makeup I’m like: ‘Oh, blush! I know about you more than you  may think!’ or ‘Mascara, I know how you were made and how you looked like houndred years ago!’ ; ) I am really impressed by the Face Paint and I highly recommend reading it. This book would be a perfect gift for every makeup freak. It is so true that after reading The Story of Makeup ‘you will never look at makeup in the same way again.’

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Have a wonderful day!
Until next one!
