Review :Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

by , in
  I love to wear makeup , especially when I'm going out and meet a lot of people. It brings me confidence and honestly I feel prettier. Maybe some of us understand about what I'm talking about. 
  A long time ago I've learned and realised how important is to remove all the makeup before I go to sleep because a clean skin is a healthy skin. It's important to let our skin breath during the night!
Cleansing my skin and eyes is a ritual after a day wearing makeup. I tested a lot of different makeup removers from a lot of brands and I had already my favorites but from time to time I like to try something new. 
This Gentle Eye Makeup Remover from Estee Lauder was a gift from a dear friend and I was thrilled when I got it. I had high expectations, I admit. 


What Estee Lauder says : 
"This gentle, lightweight formula works quickly and gently to remove powder eyeshadow and other eye makeup. Sweeps away without leaving any oily residue, so you can reapply eye makeup immediately after use. Oil-free formula won't damage delicate skin."

I agree that is a lightweiht formula and it's gently with my eyes but it doesn't remove all the eye makeup I wear. If someone who uses a lot of makeup ( eyeshadows, eyeliner, mascara ) tries to remove all that with this makeup remover will be dissapointed . Don't get me wrong , it's not the worst but for its price and brand it should be much better. If you use just mascara and eyeliner from time to time, you could like this one.
As a plus , I love the packaging. The transparent blue bottle and golden lid give a luxurious touch. And I appreciate the oil-free and fragrance-free formula. I would rate this with 7/10 .
You can find it here for aprox. $28 . 

Did you had the chance to test this one ? What do you think?
Kisses,

Is Your Perfect Living Room Traditional, Modern, or Contemporary?

by , in
When you are renovating your living room, you have a range of different design ideas to choose from. Whether you choose to opt for a traditional, contemporary or modern design for your room depends largely on your personal décor taste and the kind of look which you are hoping for. Your living room should be a happy space where you and your family spend the majority of your time together, which is why it’s important to make sure that you invest some time into getting the perfect design.

Traditional Designs

A traditional living room design uses a range of vintage décor, antique furniture, and stunning traditional fabrics and patterns to provide the perfect space to chill out or entertain. Oak furniture is great for a traditional living room, with solid wood chairs, coffee tables and shelving finishing off the look. When it comes to textiles, opting for luxury fabrics for upholstery, cushions and throws is perfect for bringing your traditional living room together and making it cosy and warm. When it comes to accessories, there is definitely no shortage, with vintage paintings, ornaments, and even tapestries available in a range of different styles and designs to add some interest to your room.

Contemporary Designs

When you opt for a contemporary living design, there are many different options that you can choose from. The majority of homeowners prefer to go down the minimalistic route when designing a contemporary room, making it one of the easiest yet most striking designs to choose for your room. Leather is a popular choice of material for furnishings in a contemporary living room, with plenty of different options available from stores such as danetti.com. Going down the contemporary route with your living room is the perfect opportunity to opt for neutral décor, such as striking whites or cream walls contrasted with dark leather furniture.

Modern Designs

By choosing a modern design, you have the option to really go wild with your living room décor. Modern designs are limitless when it comes to your choice of colour and accessories, making them the perfect choice for the creative mind. Bright colours such as red, yellow and blue are popular in modern room designs. Create the perfect space by creating a contrasting feature wall which adds an interesting pattern, or perhaps a pop of bright colour. With accessories, you can really feel up to date with a range of futuristic designs and ideas that will add unique quality to your room. Modern designs are often tied in with the latest technologies, so this could be the perfect option for a tech-lover who’s hoping to have all their latest gadgets on show.

Designing your perfect living room can be a tricky process, but it’s important to get it right as this room is at the heart of your home. With traditional, modern, and contemporary living room designs to choose from, there’s definitely going to be a design idea that suits you – or, you could combine the three for your own unique design!

How to Plan a Romantic Babymoon

by , in
With a gorgeous ring on your finger from ascotdiamonds.com, you probably thought life couldn’t get much better. Until, that is, the pregnancy test kit turns pink or blue and you realize that in nine months’ time, two will become three.
For many couples, having a baby is the icing on the cake of married life. Indeed, lots of couples get married precisely because they want to have kids together. You don’t need to get married to have a family, but in many societies, having children outside of marriage is frowned upon.
Once children do come along, the cozy relationship you have with your other half will change dramatically. You won’t have the same amount of freedom and your bank account is likely to be severely depleted. It can be a real shock to the system, which is why a babymoon is the ideal way to share some special time with your partner before baby comes along.
To help you ensure you have some quality bonding time with your beloved, here are some tips to help you plan a relaxing babymoon.

Travel at the Right Time

Most women find it easiest to travel during their second trimester, as this is the time when morning sickness fades away and a woman blooms with pregnancy hormones. By contrast, during the first three months you will probably feel exhausted, sick and not up for anything too difficult. By the time you have three months or less to go in your pregnancy, it will be increasingly hard to move around easily and you certainly won’t want to go far from home.

Choose the Right Destination

There is nothing to stop you trekking up the Amazon or climbing Kilimanjaro when pregnant, but if you want a nice, relaxing babymoon with your partner, it is better to stick to mainstream destinations where medical assistance is only a phone call away.

Book Comfortable Accommodation

Sleep can be elusive when a woman is pregnant. For this reason, it is worth paying a bit extra for a deluxe room or suite when you go on a babymoon. You will appreciate a super comfortable bed and quiet surroundings, especially when enjoying a cozy lie-in with your beloved.

Take Out Travel Insurance

It is usually safe to travel up to your third trimester, but do make sure you take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers pregnancy and childbirth, just in case baby decides to make an early arrival.

Treat Yourself

This is your opportunity to enjoy some ‘us time’ before a demanding little person arrives. Make the most of your babymoon and book some relaxing spa treatments or spend a few days enjoying quiet conversation by the pool. Once you have kids, your vacations will never be this relaxing again.

Lastly, if you elect to fly to your vacation destination, be sure to check the airline’s policy on flying during pregnancy. Some airlines are not as relaxed as others, so if you book your babymoon late in pregnancy, make sure you are able to fly or your babymoon will become a staycation.

Preparing Your Home Ready for the Winter

by , in
It may still be August, but it won’t be long until the days start to become shorter and the nights longer as the cold weather starts to creep back around. Even though here in the UK we don’t often get a lot of warm weather, the winter months can be significantly colder, with frozen pipes and draughts becoming commonplace for many homeowners. Thankfully, we’re at a time of year that’s perfect for preparing your home to be able to withstand the upcoming colder months, and there are many simple things that you can do to ensure that your house is a cosy haven of warmth, even on the coldest winter days.

Upgrade Your Heating

Upgrading your heating system is definitely a good idea when it comes to preparing your home for the winter, especially if your boiler, heaters and radiators are looking a bit worse for wear and haven’t been updated in a while. Upgrading your heating system not only means that you’ll be warmer at home during the winter months, it can also mean that you’ll save money on your energy bills over the winter due to a higher level of energy efficiency. For radiators, heated towel rails and more, see warmrooms.co.uk.

Check Your Insulation

Since around a quarter of the heat in your home is lost through the roof, having good loft and wall cavity insulation when the winter months come around is absolutely vital. If your home already has insulation, it’s a good idea to have it checked before the winter to make sure that it is not showing signs of wear and tear or causing any unnecessary heat to be lost. Insulation in the walls and around the pipes in your home is also absolutely vital during the winter as this will help to prevent any pipes from becoming frozen and bursting during colder weather.

Clean Your Gutters

One of the biggest causes of leaks during the winter months is clogged gutters. As the summer starts to draw to a close, trees will begin to shed their leaves leaving gutters and drainpipes filled up with loose foliage. Once the blockage starts to become too much, water begins to pool, backing up into the guttering and leaking into the roof and down the walls of the house. Before the winter sets in, having your gutters thoroughly cleaned to ensure that they are free of debris is essential to prevent damage.

Draught-Proof

There’s nothing worse than a chilly draught when you’re trying to relax in your heated home during the winter, so make sure that you’ve checked the edges of your windows and doors for any cracks that draughts could sneak through. You can either get draught excluders or adhesive draught slips to cover the cracks and keep the cold air outside where it belongs, keeping you nice and warm and reducing the amount of energy escaping from your home.

It may not be winter yet, but it’s never too early to start making sure your home is fully prepared to be nice and warm when it gets cold outside.

Boardroom Etiquette

by , in
Hi girls , 

Since I'm all day in a office , I was thinking about all the changes in office behaviour over the years. If now it's a semi-casual place where you have your laptop , few personal things and work documents, back in the days offices were stacked high with paperwork , people smoked in there and spend a lot of extra time working. 
In the boardroom etiquette , changes are good during the years . Or so I think.
 In our days we can find all kind of furniture for our work place , Calibre Office Furniture has great boardrooms tables , office desks etc.

In my opinion , it's very important to have a decent behaviour at the office and all those changes during the years it's for that. Now if you smoke or drink at your workplace , you won't be seen good (maybe even fired).
Once upon a time meetings took place face-to-face , now we have skype and e-mails and we're always in a hurry. Ofcourse , it's better and quicker  to send an email than to have a meeting if it's not necessary.

I'm just curious how the boardroom etiquette will change in the next 20 years with all the new technology. Should be interesting.

Tips for Buying a Holiday Wardrobe on a Budget

by , in
Holiday season is in full swing and everybody seems to be jetting off here, there and everywhere for

a week or two on the golden sands of an exotic country. Every year we dream of these summer

months when sat in the office; the weeks where we can relax carefree with a cocktail in one hand

and a book in the other. It’s no secret that holidays are expensive and it’s an unwritten rule that any

holiday requires a brand new holiday wardrobe. The items bought are likely to be only worn on

holiday as our British climate just doesn’t allow for bikinis and beach dresses all year round,

unfortunately. So here’s some tips for buying a holiday wardrobe that won’t break the bank and

leave some extra cash for the much needed winter coat in months to come.

Work Out Which Wardrobe Essentials It’s Worth Splashing Extra Cash On

When buying your holiday wardrobe, you’re going to need the essentials such as t-shirts, shorts and

socks. In order to save yourself some money, use this guide to understand whether it’s worth

spending more money on an item or buying it cheaper, depending on how long it will last in terms of

general wear and tear. Usually shorts will last longer than socks, so spend more on a high quality

pair of shorts and less on some basic socks.

Be Savvy in the Sales

There are various times during the year when sales are on, and the summer sales are a big one.

These usually take place in high street shops and online from July to September, with items getting

even cheaper towards the end of September when the summer season is over. Always check the

sales first for any holiday wear, and be extra savvy by shopping for next summer in this year’s end of

season bargains. Trust me, you’ll save a lot of cash.

Recycle Your Current Clothes

Don’t feel like you have to buy everything for your holiday wardrobe. A great way to save some

money but still have plenty to wear is to reuse clothes from your last summer holiday, or even

better, recycle your current clothes and make them summer suitable. If you’ve got an old pair of

jeans that won’t last till the winter, get doing some DIY clothes altering and cut them down into a

brand new pair of shorts. You don’t have to be a pro to make yourself a great new item for your

summer holiday.

If you’re still struggling on a tight clothing budget along with paying for your fabulous holiday, don’t

panic, UK home and personal loans will ensure that your summer goes as smoothly and comfortably

as possible. Once you know the ways to buy a great holiday wardrobe on a budget you’ll be set for

life, and will look incredible on all those sun kissed holidays to come. So enjoy the beach and those

cocktails, while looking fabulous.

Planning a Cheap Outdoor Wedding in Surrey

by , in
Surrey is a beautiful place for a wedding. The weather is nice most of the time, especially around

June to September. This means you can have a lovely summer or autumn outdoor wedding. If you

still think an outdoor wedding would be out of your budget, then this article is for you. In this article,

we are going to discuss how you can plan an affordable outdoor wedding in Surrey.

Set a Budget & Pick a Venue

When it comes to planning an outdoor wedding, choosing the right venue is half the battle. A good

outdoor venue should have everything you need for the special day, from a gorgeous landscape for

the backdrop to the right kind of dirt or ground surface to avoid potential problems. In Surrey, there

are a lot of gorgeous outdoor wedding venues to choose from.

Before you start hunting for Surrey outdoor wedding venues, however, it is important to have a clear

budget in mind. After all, you want the special day to be affordable. Take a closer look at how much

you can afford to spend on the wedding. Don’t worry; you will find a stunning venue that suits your

budget perfectly.

Work with Local Service Providers

To save more on the wedding, you can do most of the planning and organising yourself. You can ask

friends and family to help with the details. More importantly, work with Surrey wedding suppliers

that are close to the venue. Luckily, there are plenty of caterers, florists and other wedding services

in Surrey. There are plenty of great deals too!

All you have to do is go online and compare service providers and options. Take your time; in fact,

you should always invest more time and compare deals closely. You will be surprised by just how

much you can actually save once you look through discounts and special offers.

All-Inclusive Outdoor Wedding

Naturally, not every couple wants to plan an entire wedding without help. If you want to keep the

wedding planning process simple and save a lot of money – while still having a beautiful outdoor

wedding – then an all-inclusive wedding package is the answer. Once again, the internet is your

friend when it comes to finding the right package to go for.

UK Wedding Savings is one of the main sites you should visit as you search for wedding packages.

You will find a lot of great Surrey venues available, along with the wedding packages to choose from.

The packages you see on the site include everything, so all you have to do is pick the one that suits

you best.

One last tip I can give you is to pay close attention to details. Pick a date and plan ahead for the

special day. With the resources we just discussed in this article, you can have a beautiful outdoor

wedding at the venue of your choice without so much as a problem. You will also be able to keep

your wedding affordable; an outdoor wedding in Surrey doesn’t have to be expensive at all.

Review : Age Defying with DNA Advantage Powder - Revlon

by , in


I'm always looking for the perfect foundation and powder for my sensitive oily skin. I found some great products but still looking and trying new products.
 Revlon is a brand I love , their products have great quality for a decent price, so when I saw Age defying with DNA Advantage Powder I was curious.

Revlon says : "Our ultra fine powder helps skin to feel conditioned and look luminous, minimizing the appearance of discoloration due to the signs of aging. This deluxe pressed powder glides on seamlessly and feels lightweight on skin. Skin looks smoother and conditioned and does not settle into fine lines, wrinkles and pores."

This is a fragrance-free pressed powder with antioxidant from cherries, peptide and repairing ingredients. It's a really good powder, Revlon did a great job for this one too. 

What I like :

- Has a soft matte finish 
- Controls oil 
- Skin looks polished  without appearing dull or too powdered. I hate it when my face looks all cakey and too powdered. 
- It's really lightweight and looks so natural .
- It doesn't settle into fine lines and large pores. 
- It's not chalky
- It doesn't dry the skin


What I don't like : 
- the packaging. 
It's not elegant , seems cheap. The mirror is very small, almost useless. The brush included also is small , not suitable for applying the powder. With a black package, bigger mirror and another brush, this would be a great choice. Don't get me wrong, it is a good product, does a great job for girls with normal to oily skin but I think the packaging it's a minus. 

Revlon Colorstay and this powder is a great combination, especially for spring or autumn. During the summer , I must find another foundation or powder. Still didn't found the perfect one. 

It's price : aprox . 50 RON for 12g. 


What's your favourite powder girls? I would like to know , especially if you have oily skin.

Thanks for reading!! Kisses,
Laura

Syoss Gloss Sensation - and I'm back!!

by , in
 Hello my dear ones ,

It's been a while since I wrote a review and I really missed it! I have a new job , live in a new city , I was stressed with life in general and I didn't have the time, inspiration to write.. I'm sorry about that because I love my blog , I miss you my beautiful readers and I miss the feeling I had when I said "I'm a beauty blogger" ,
I loved my hair color but when Syoss presented the new Gloss Sensation - a gentle colour without ammonia for a sensational glossy haircolor & visible improvement of the hair quality I was curious and it seemed a must have for me. I felt the need for a change ( cut my hair too). You know how it is girls , don't you?
I choosed the shade "Dark Morello Cherry" hoping my color would be exactly the same as the girl from the box. Obviously , it's a bit different but similar , especially in natural light.
Here you can see a before and after :


In the box I found everything I needed :
 I applied it like any other color creme , left it for 30 minutes and then washed my hair. 
I really loved the result . No amonia color creme is exactly what I need because I get bored of one hair colour very easily.

 Gloss Sensation from Syoss offered me like 5-6 weeks of "Dark Morello Cherry" for my hair . So definetly not 8 weeks. If you wanna try it now it's on sale for 18.99 RON (normal price : 24.99 ron).  I'm thinking of something red-ish .. 


So good to be back , girls!!! Especially this month when my blog celebrates 5 years. Pinky promise that I will try to write weekly.

XO,
Laura

Hosting the Perfect Bachelorette Party

by , in
So you’ve grown up with your best friend and now she’s getting married. As the Maid of Honor it’s your

job to plan the bachelorette party and you don’t want to let your BFF down. With a little time, a nice

glass of wine and some creative thinking, it isn’t too hard to plan a party that rocks. Here are some ideas from around the Web.

Book an All-Male Review

Hiring a male dancer has always been expected at a bachelorette party but why settle for just one when

you can have several good looking guys livening it up a bit on your friend’s last night as a single girl? In

the morning she will emerge a married woman but for tonight, it’s time to rock as a single. Some girls

get together with other brides-to- be in their city and book a private all-male review so that the

‘entertainment’ is affordable. You can find ideas for the best male review show and get really good pics

of the guys on www.hunkstheshow.com. Now if that won’t give you a night that rocks, what will?

Video Conference Friends from Around the Globe

One of the wonders of the modern digital world is that you can teleconference all your friends into the

party to celebrate along with you. Whether using Skype or some other program such as FaceTime,

everyone can get together in cyberspace if not in the real world. Let them watch the men in action, have

a few drinks where they are and toast the bride-to- be along with those who are in the room. If you

aren’t in a location that has a laptop or PC set up, not to worry. There are tons of video chat apps freely

available to work with your smartphone so no one need be left out.

Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Smart maids of honor know what a night of carousing can do to the bride’s good looks and so no one

wants to see black bags under her eyes and certainly not skin that is green from being sick after too

much to eat. One novel way to celebrate a bachelorette party is to take it around town in stages. Hit one

club for a drink and walk it off to a nice little all-night diner for a sandwich or at least a plate of fries.

Now you’re ready for your next stop. Hit another bar, stop at one of the girl’s houses for another morsel

of food and then it’s time for the next round. By keeping food in your system and a break between

drinks, you can ensure the bride isn’t overindulging and the fresh air between will keep her revitalized.

You see, it doesn’t exactly matter what you plan for this special night, what matters is keeping her

engaged in activities so she doesn’t have time to worry. A bunch of hunky men dancing just for her, a

few drinks, a series of walks and a couple stops for refreshments should keep her mind on the fun and

off the worries of the morrow. It’s her special night before her special day so keep her laughing, keep

her moving and tomorrow she’ll be the fairy book princess bride she’d always dreamed of being.

How to Create a Luxurious Bedroom

by , in
Your bedroom is your place to escape to whenever you are feeling stressed, such as at the end of a long day of hard work. Therefore, you should definitely take the time to modernise your bedroom and design it in a way that will be beautiful, inviting, cosy, and luxurious. After all, you want to feel as though you are in the lap of luxury when you settle in for the night or when you simply want to relax and take it easy. Check out the tips below to get started.

Make Sure That the Bed is the Focal Point of the Room

Your bed should be the focal point of your bedroom, so you definitely do not want to neglect it when it comes to designing a luxurious space for yourself. In fact, your bed is the first area of the room that you should place your attention on when adding luxury to the room.
If you have the budget and you need to replace your mattress or you are looking for a mattress that will support your body better so that you never wake up with pain again, you should definitely invest in the upgrade. On top of that, you should also update your headboard if it is old. A plush, fabric headboard that you can comfortably rest up against is a great way to add luxury to the room.
And, finally, decorate your bed with the highest end ThreeL 3d sateen duvet sets that you will love snuggling into, as well as large, plush pillow sets that match.

Choose the Right Colour Scheme

There are so many colour schemes to choose from, which can make it difficult to decide upon the one that is right for you. When it comes to a luxurious bedroom design, though, you simply can’t go wrong with taupe as your main colour. In fact, the deeper the shade you choose, the more drama it will provide to the space, and the more you will feel like you are in a 5-star luxury hotel suite.

Create the Perfect Atmosphere with the Right Lighting

The lighting in your bedroom is also really important if you want to create a soothing and relaxing atmosphere. Avoid fluorescent lighting and opt instead for recessed lighting, as this will create an even glow throughout the space. If you need task lighting, add some side lamps to your room, and install a dimmer for overhead lights so you can control just how bright and energised you want your room to be at any time. Finally, to save money on your energy bill, opt for light bulbs that are eco-friendly and long lasting, such as LED bulbs.

To create a luxurious bedroom, you need to focus on all of the details, from the big details like your bed, to the smaller details like your décor. In the end, though, by choosing the right colour scheme, bedding, and lighting, you will have a bedroom that will make you feel like royalty every time you are in it.
