Always remember that the power to change something is within ourselves! Now, let’s celebrate this wonderful day with some inspirational quotes that I’ve chosen.

School Outfit Ideas | Winter


Hello, everyone 🙂

How are you? 

I just got home from class and I’m preparing myself a relaxing bath with some vanilla bath bombs, but I wanted to write this post before I can relax properly. As I mentioned on my Instagram and Facebook page, I will post the details of my outfit of the day, but I decided to include another outfit that I wore last week. The first outfit is more on the classy side, whereas the other one is very casual yet trendy.

 I hope you have an amazing evening and I will see you guys in the next post.

Born This Way Foundation | Review


Hello, guys 🙂

Happy New Year, everyone!  This new year, view the world with a positive outlook, speak your heart out with confidence, listen to others as well as your inner voice and you will be on the correct road in the correct direction. If the previous year hasn’t given you something to be happy and proud of, don’t fret. If the 31st of December signifies the end of a year, the 1st of January signifies the beginning. You have life; you have hope, go out there and accomplish all that you want. Happy 2017!

I decided that my first post of 2017 would be a detailed review of the famous Born This Way foundation by Too Faced. I have purchased this like 3 weeks ago and I’ve been wearing it 5 times since then. I am in the colour Porcelain, which is a fair shade with neutral undertones. 

Now, what it’s really cool is that it is said to be infused with coconut water to delicately replenish skin’s moisture levels, alpine rose to brighten skin’s appearance and promote elastcity and also hyaluronic acid for a smoother, more youthful appearance, so that’s another thing that made me want to get it. 

If you’ve seen the marketing for Born This Way, you know it promises benefits that blur the lines between skincare and makeup. With claims to moisturize and brighten skin while providing medium-to-full coverage that is “so undetectable, you can’t see the makeup and you can’t see imperfections”. I can’t see the difference in my skincare, but as far as makeup, it is one of the best foundations I have ever used. 

 

I have normal to combination skin, and the formula works very well on my type of skin. The coverage is medium with one layer and full with two layers, as it is said on the packaging. It looks flawless on the face, exactly like you were “born this way”.

The are only two things that I do not like about this foundation.

  1. If you are wearing it alone, without any powder, it does transfer quite easy. So I totally recommend using a setting powder with this. 
  2. It doesn’t have any SPF in it, which is not that big of a deal, but I do like to take extra protection of my skin.

 

After all, if I had to rate Born This Way foundation, I would definitely give it a 9/10. I totally recommend trying this foundation out, because you will be surprised of it’s quality. 

Until next time, I wish you an amazing week and for those who still have exams to take, lots of luck 🙂

Fall Inspired Makeup Look | 2016


Hello, guys 🙂

How are you? I’m currently enjoying a big cup of green tea and scrolling down the news feed. 

Yesterday I finally managed to film the makeup look that I posted on instagram like 2 or 3 weeks ago and also edited it this morning. Firstly, I almost edited it last night but all the progress was lost and I can say that I sweared for like 15 minutes after that incident. But nevermind, after 3 hours of editing I managed to upload it. 

I am honestly in love with this makeup look simply because fall is my favourite season. Hope you like it too! If you do, please give it a thumbs up and also subscribe for more videos to come!

 

See you next time, 

Carmen

Hello, everyone 🙂

Welcome back!

With the temps cooling down more and more each week, we’re finally getting in the mood for cozy knits, coats, layers, leather, fur, and everything else that autumn weather implies.  Here are two of the outfits that I wore this week and I wanted to share the details with you. I know that they are not the best photos that I’ve ever taken but maybe you can get at least some ideas from them.

Let’s talk about | FEMINISM


What do we know about feminism

feminism-definition

Many of us may think that feminism means superiority of women. Well, that’s not the case. 

Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social rights for women. I will not start getting into details about this, because I think that all of us has encountered at least one time in our life some type of discrimination based on gender.  In short, feminism = gender equality.

Every single time that I mentioned that I am a feminist, someone contradicted me and tried to change my vision about what feminism actually means. Sometimes even verbally assaulted that I even dare to think this way. I am not saying that you don’t have the right to express your opinion about a certain subject, but that doesn’t mean to catalogue somebody else just because they don’t have the same opinion as you.

“Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions, for safety on the streets, for child care, for social welfare, for rape crisis centers, women’s refuges, reforms in the law.”

– Dale Spender –

I guess that I am a feminist. At least, I like to think that way about myself. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are, based on what somebody else thinks you should be?  Why do you have to label yourself something that society thinks it’s normal, but you don’t?  

These are just simply my toughts about the idea of being a feminist. I’m not saying that you need to have the same opinion, I just wanted to express my beliefs with you.

What’s your opinion? 🙂
