New mini-haul

Did it again! :) Bought (un?)necessary stuff again, most of them thanks to some of the Romanian beauty bloggers (hope you're glad I'll be running out of money soon if I keep buying things out of curiosity).

This one I received but it's still in the haul for you to comment on it

I bought this thanks to Classy and Pink; she's been kind enough to sent one to try out. Had to ''try" it again, of course.

Once I got home with it I had to test it. I hope we'll get along fine.

Tested already: it won't work well with heavy polished nails.

I already regret buying it. It does nothing for my rebellious and frizzy hair, so far.

It does make my hair smoother than other conditioners, but it won't disentangle it; on the contrary, it just drives me crazy.

To be tested. Fingers crossed

Best thing I've used so far with regard to intimate hygiene

The ones that are never too many. :))

with flashlight

I'll be glad to receive any suggestions and opinions on the products, whether you've tested them or you're thinking of buying them.

Mini fashion haul :D

I usually don't do hauls, except this one :)) Well, these are things that I like A LOT and I had this impulse to share it with everyone.

I know there's the pixelate effect around it a but that's just because I couldn't stand the flashlight (see the little white square) being there. It cost me about 10$ and it's a no name item. I'll also add a picture of the back, which is way more interesting.

Same thing with the pixels... I tried it on and I couldn't undress after because I felt so good in it... well...I'll look good enough after a couple of weeks of abs workout. It's free size but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone that wears S or M size clothes.

And now the 'thing' I've been actually waiting for for 2 weeks. I've tried to get these from the offline shop, but they constantly assured me they would ask for my size too, which they didn't. Therefore I went online to bb*up what shoes and ordered them.

It might sound silly, but I'm so happy that I finally bought them.

HELP needed: if you happen to bump into any accessible Romanian online shop that sells short to medium woolen winter coats, please share!

Have a great week! XO

My experience with sugaring/ waxing/ parissa

Funny thing when you start thinking 'Hey, I can do that thing too' and the thing is a boiled composition made of sugar, water and lemon juice. That's how you get 'sugar wax' and it's explained in hundreds of vids on Youtube, in English, French, German, Spanish and many more, you just have to look for them.

One day I had that thought and it led me to...medium-low heated mixture boiling out of my pot. Turned it to low-heat (if you've seen it you know what I mean) but it kept 'erupting' so I gave up. For good. Then turned to the pros.

That's some random guy that just made a fool of himself on my blog too. But even though I wasn't that hairy :D, the product was super efficient. They say you should apply the strips again if some of the hair is still there, but I had no trouble after the first attempt.

This helped me do my underarms and my legs and I still got half a jar. That's because I used too much, just to be on the safe side.

Weeks after, I decided to try their body sugar.

I was so relieved that it needed only water to wash off, because it had disappointed me. Or maybe I was the one that couldn't handle it as well as the warm wax. But I am never gonna try this at home alone again.

Another products of theirs that did not impress me much were the actual:

+ they do quite a good job
- you have to rub them in your palms until they are warm enough, detach them into two and use them in the needing areas; most of the times, the wax stays on one side and the other looks so...clean and it's therefore not that economical

I will however give a biiiiiiig plus to:
- the azulene oil (the little blue bottle) that helped me remove the wax
- the washable and reusable strips which are probably reusable only if you're sugaring and not waxing yourself

Keep your fingers crossed because next on my list is:

You can check their online catalog, they have a lots of products and the one that I am really dying to try out is:

Hopefully I'll survive to keep you posted about my (mis)adventures with regard to hair removal.

Oh, yeah, parissa didn't pay me to write anything about them in no way. Their products are not exclusive and you can find them even in hypermarkets. Ciao, belle! XO
What type of wax do you use at home? I'd be glad to read about your faves.

He says, she says?

Being a girl seems so stressful at times. What to put on, if your shoes fir the outfit, if that's color blocking or a sign that you should change clothes, if there's too much drama added to your lashes, if you forgot to add some blush to you cheeks, lots of ifs and lots of worries.

Of course, it's much easier to be a guy, right? They always buy shirts that need no ironing, they don't mind wearing the same pair of jeans two days in a row, they rarely use lip balm and perfume themselves in a correct way. Ok, I did not forget about the ones that spend more time in font of the mirror than I do but let's face it: those can hardly qualify as good catches for a girl. Unless you are open to receive plenty of advice regarding your hairstyle, make up, lifestyle and whatnot from a guy.

What would you do girls if a guy, a boy, a man, finally some living creature with authentic male reproductive organs would tell you the following: (?)
- I want to kiss you now. Do you think you can get rid of that gloss on your lips? No, I am not comfortable with basically eating it. Are you?

- Wait a minute, gonna wash my mouth. I think it's because your perfume. I don't know where have you read that it's ok to spray the 'kissable' areas with it. Here, have a try! Pooh! Tasty, huh?
- Haven't you been dramatic enough so far? I'm not crying about that, it's just that your false lashes keep getting in my eyes.

- That pink eye shadow and lipstick looks trashy. I don't want people to think that I'm dating some Nicki Minaj wannabe.

- Honey, you know when I told you that lenses don't bother me? I didn't mean this color.

- Since you've got a new manicure, you hardly give me any massage.

TAGz :-)

This is gonna be a hell of a tag, full of photos since I am not really good at sticking to plans.
First, I wanna start with a cute one, kindly (or so I hope) shared by Andreea from A Beauty Tale.

And here we go:

  • Favorite magazine. I don't think I have one. Back in highschool I used to read Tabu because it had many spicy and funny articles and I am currently subscribed to Cosmopolitan, FHM and AskMen's newsletters but I rarely open them. 
  • Favorite color. I'm having trouble deciding between red and blue and I'd also add shades of black. What can I say? I like to play it cool.

  • Favorite series. That's easy. This one has never disappointed me.

It's The Big Bang Theory
  • Favorite TV programme(s). The Ross Kemp Series, The Graham Norton Show and American Chopper
  • Favorite book. It's probably Pride and Prejudice because it's the story that every girl dreams of, at a certain age. 
  • Favorite song. Uh, that does not necessarily change, but it's dictated by the mood. 

  • Favorite movie. I now think of John Cusack and his boombox from Say Anything..., but I'll stick to:

  • Favorite blog. It's got to do with everything. It's
  • Favorite singer. Maybe Michael Bublé.
