The secret to being alone is to organize your time; to develop habits and routines and gradually elevate their importance to where they seem almost like normal, healthy activities

Hi there!
I don't know how you found your way here, since I've decided not to advertise my blog for now.
The first words are always the hardest, no matter what I'm writing. I've wanted to write something. Apart from work and texting and Facebook I write nothing. I don't see myself as a good writer, cause I'm not, and writing isn't my passion, but I do miss writing to no one in particular. 

So what do I do these days? I work and study. It's really nice to know that I'm capable of doing so, cause at times thinking about future used to feel hopeless.

What am I going to blog about? It may come as a surprise, but I don't watch movies that often anymore. I just don't have the time and when I do I'm just used to doing something else.
Instead I read. I don't read as often as I'd like, cause work and school take most of my time, but I read as much as I can. So you will hear my book recommendations and books I don't recommend. Just books in general.
I also like everything beauty related, mostly makeup and skin care products. When I gained weight I kind of let myself go when it came to fashion. I just felt really ugly and bloated and I still kind of do, even when I've lost 6 kg. But then I found beauty. I didn't have to be skinny to look good when it came to beauty products. I might not be good at doing my makeup, but it is something I enjoy.

For my first post in ages I'm gonna show you some of my favourite beauty products (I'm already making a post of all the books I've read recently, so stay tuned!)

I just ordered some things from Beauty Bay. I had my previous Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade for months and I never run out, there's tons of product left. I just dyed my hair brown (ok, it looks really black) so I couldn't use my old blonde dipbrow anymore. If you've been looking at this product but were unsure because of the price, I advice you to just buy it. You won't have to buy a new one in a long time.
I've been using Gerard Cosmetic's Hydra Matte liquid lipstick in color Serenity and I absolutely adore it. It can be a bit drying on the lip, so I decided to try some of their lipsticks. I got the shades 1995 and French Toast.

I also ordered these Mario Badescu skin care products. I've heard so many great things about these but I've never tried any. I'm going to try and use these daily and maybe tell you more about them then. 

And here are some of my favourite makeup products at the moment. I've been really into pink shades in my eyelids, lips and cheeks.

Morphe 35T palette, Milani blush in Romantic Rose, Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter, Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips in Beeper and Solow, Lavera Glossy Lips in Sweet Melon, Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte liquid lipstick in Serenity, NYX Pore Filler primer, NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Yogurt, NYX Vivid Bright liquid eyeliner in Vivid Sapphire, NYX white liquid eyeliner and NYX Micro Brow pencil.

These are my favourite makeup brushes (I forgot to shoot Anastasia's brow brush #12, it is the best brush to use with Dipbrow Pomade). I've been drooling over Zoeva's vegan brush set, but it's pretty expensive and I can live without it (for now).

I really like Real Technique's and EcoTools brushes. They're very affordable and they're just perfect for my use.

I love these face creams from Mossa. They smell heavenly and they're very gentle (my face is super dry and red so I can't use anything too strong). I'm using day cream that smells like blueberries and night cream that smells like blackberry.

I ordered Queen Helene's peel-off masque and scrub from iHerb. I've loved both of them and they were super cheap too!

I've never used eye cream in my life. I think I convinced myself the same way I convinced myself that I don't need to wash my makeup off every night. My skin isn't going to stay young forever. I really like this Lavera eye cream. It has this pearl color that conceals dark under eye circles. And it smells amazing.

I've been using castor oil for a few weeks now and I can already see new lashes and hair on my brows growing.

I bought this Eau Roma Water from Lush a few months ago and I really love it. It smells amazing and it soothes my skins.

Extensions on left, natural hair on right.

I got these amazing Irresistible Me (click!) hair extensions ages ago, but I just wanted to show you them. I just recently dyed my hair back to brown (I really liked my kind of orange hair, but it was almost impossible to keep it good looking, it always started to fade at some places and my dark roots looked horrible) so I'm going to try and dye these extensions too. I'm going to show them to you as soon as I do it.

These are the thickest clip-on extensions I've ever seen. They're a bit on the expensive side, but they're so worth it. I can't even put every piece in my hair cause there's no room for them. I chose the silky touch extensions in color Silky Golden Blonde (#14)
