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? 🙂

Chocolate Apple Cupcakes


 cupcakes

Hello, guys 🙂

How are you ?  Hope you’re having a lovely evening! If not, let me  try to sweeten it up a little bit.

Yesterday I felt like I haven’t made cupcakes for a very long time and I was craving some sooo bad, so I chose to make some “fall” themed ones. These cupcakes are sooo delicious and they are also very easy to make. You only need a few ingredients that you may also already have in your kitchen. 

I personally love the taste of these, and I can not wait to try a lot more recipes in the near future. Please let me know how your cupcakes ended up 🙂

RECIPE

Composition

  • 150 gr. flour
  • 1 ltbs. baking powder
  • 150 gr. sugar
  • 100 gr. butter
  • 1 egg
  • 100 gr. milk chocolate/ bitter chocolate
  • 2 apples

 

Begin by mixing the butter with sugar until it becomes pasty and has a fluffy consistancy. Add the egg, mix the composition then gradually add flour and 1 ltbs of baking powder. Chop the apples with a grater, melt the chocolate by steaming it, add it to the composition and finally add the apples that you chopped earlier. Make sure you let the water from the chopped apples drain a little bit before you add them to the composition, otherwise it will ruin everything that you’ve made until this point. Preheat the oven at 180 while you put the composition on the paper forms. Finally, put the cupcakes in the oven and wait for about 15-25 minutes. 

Ornate

  • 100 gr. butter
  • 2 tbs. milk
  • 80 gr. milk chocolate/ bitter chocolate
  • 150 gr. caster sugar

 

Mix the butter with caster sugar until it is made homogeneous. After that add milk and the melted chocolate. After the cupcakes cooled down, ornate them with this composition and add more apples if you want. 

My result:

If you tried this recipe, feel free to send me pictures. I would love to see your cupcakes 🙂 !

I wish you a lovely week and I’ll see you next time !

Hello, Autumn !


971958a3a94d187271e882e6e59b6984

Hello, everybody 🙂

Tonight I felt quite inspired to write a new blog post since I haven’t done this for a very long time. 

Why? I don’t know. Tbh I just think that I have quite some problems with my motivation. But I promise that at least I will try this fall to keep you updated and post more. 

I don’t know about you, but I feel some type of way when autumn finally arrives. All the beautiful colours that surround yourself are so majestic and they make me feel some type of way.

What am I most excited about besides colder weather and beautiful landscapes, is that Halloween is around the corner 😀  I am very excited about this Halloween because I planned to film some Halloween tutorials for a long time, but also some fall inspired makeup tutorials and lookbooks. I hope you would like them as much as I do. 

If you want to see a specific Halloween makeup tutorial make sure to message me and I will, for sure, take your wishes into consideration 🙂

Thank you so much and I will see you soon with a new post.

Kim Kardshian Makeup | Cannes 2016


 

Hello, everyone! I’m happy to be finally back posting. Sorry that I’ve been missing for like 4 months or so but I had a period in my life when stress has taken over and I couldn’t manage to film any videos. But yeah, as I said, now I’m back and I hope that this summer I’ll post a lot more frequently.

Everyone knows that while Cannes is about the award-winning films being screened there, the real show is on the red carpet where A-list actors and models bring the drama in flowing gowns, millions worth of diamonds and innumerable up-dos. But up until now, there’s always been one crucial element missing at Cannes, and that’s Kim Kardashian West. But all of that’s about to change this year as the reality star is finally making her grand debut.

 

Her kohl-lined eyes were the show-stopping component of her look, paired with nude lips and bold, black brows. And of course, her contour was sharp enough to slice through the haters. She had a romantic, faded out wing that was edgy but beautiful. If you’re wondering who delivered this makeup masterpiece, it was none other than Mario Dedivanovic himself.

Now, this is my version of her makeup, it’s not like the exact look because she had more like matte eyeshadows on her lid but I spiced it up a bit and added a little bit of shimmer on my lids.

I really hope you enjoyed this video. If you did, please give it a big thumbs up and subscribe if you want to, and until next time I’ll se you guys later. Bye 🙂

Kylie Jenner Inspired | Golden Globes


Hello, everyone 🙂

I hope you are all having an amazing evening.

I am very excited for the today’s video because even tough I filmed this last week, I couldn’t manage to completely edit it until today. I am going to show you my “recreation” of Kylie Jenner’s look at the Golden Globes afterparty, which can totally be worn at many ocassions because it’s a bronzed look with a basic brown smokey eye and a nude-peachy lip. I hope you guys can find some inspiration on this video and if you attempt to recreate Kylie’s look too, please send me your photos. I would love to see them. 

Well, until next time I’ll see you guys later!

Hope you enjoyed, 

Carmen

 

2015 Beauty Favourites


 

Hello, everyone 🙂

How have you been ? Today was the first day of school after the winter break and what can I say, it was pretty exhausting. I had only like 4 hours of sleep last night so I can say that I am pretty fresh.

*hah* 

I managed to film the first video of 2016 a couple of days ago and I had been editing this one for like 1-2 days, so I’m happy that it’s finally up. I hope you enjoy and please leave a comment if you use some of the products I am talking about in this video and what was your impression. 

Also, I want to apologize for the poor audio, but honestly I’ve tried to make this audio sound ok for like 3 hours and this is the best that I could get it. Again, I’m sorry, I hope that in the next months I’d be able to buy a better camera so in this way my videos would hopefully become better and better.

Thank you so much, 

Carmen

Thinking about the FUTURE |#ChatWithMe


Hello, everyone 🙂

How was your day?  

I personally relaxed all day and enjoyed the first real snow here in my city. I was so impressed by the teeny-tiny snowflakes that showed up in the afternoon and completely changed the atmosphere of the surroundings, that later on turned into a really gorgeous snowblanket which transformed everything into a white fairytale. I have waited the whole month of December for a good snowfall to approach us and now it’s finally here. I don’t know about you but I am really happy about this weather even though I am a little bit sick.

Even tough this weather gives me a relaxed feeling, I certainly think that in those moments we think more about the problems and the concerns that we have. I am completely sure that every single person on this planet had concerning thoughts about his/her future at least one time. I can say that I am one of those people too.  How about you?

Am I gonna fail? Am I gonna be successful? Am I gonna rely on others? Am I gonna be independent? Am I gonna be poor? Am I gonna have a good wealth ?

If you have ever asked yourself one of the questions from the above then you are one of them too. But is it a real problem if you are thinking about your future, if you are insecure? Well, it’s not. It’s completely normal. You want to build a happy and successful live so that’s why you are so concerned. 

The real problem starts when you are overthinking about it. Some people think so much about their future that they forget to live in the present. Thinking too much about future is definitely bad. Well , if you want to know why,  future is unpredictable. I mean, you do have control under you and your person, but this means that you need to find out what makes you happy and what you are passionate about. The thing is about you trying to divert your mind. Do something you love!

Believe me, nothing can ever trouble you if you start enjoying what you do. Remember, diverting your mind is not running away from the problem. It is a way of facing it because, going against the storm is not a wise thing to do if you want to survive. 

So, as a conclusion, the best thing that we all need to do is simply living every moment that we are going through and do things that will help you to build the future that you are dreaming of. YOU are the leader of your progress and your own life. 

See you next time,

Carmen
