October, the month of PINK

By now, you should notice that we are celebrating annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You can see pink ribbons everywhere.

What is breast cancer?
Breast cancer is a malignant tumor that starts in the cells of the breast. A malignant tumor is a group of cancer cells that can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. The disease occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get it, too (American Cancer Society, 2015). 

It is important to know how to self-examine your breasts to discover any abnormalities in breast tissue. The earlier you discover them, the better it is! So don't forget to examine ''your two friends'' regularly! It is also good to have healthy lifestyle as well (healthy food, exercise).

I, along with lots of other Slovenian bloggers, decided to show support. We decided that this Wednesday is a PINK day. The rules were simple, just wear pink, have pink makeup or nails... Whatever you wanted! Since the day isn't over yet I urge you to join us and wear PINK!

And here is what I did in collaboration with other bloggers. I decided to do my first nail art manicure (it isn't perfect but I'm happy with the result) and to do a light pink makeup. I searched my makeup case and finally found every thing that I had in pink.

All the products I used for my makeup and nails are from Essence!
For my eyes I used eyeshadow palettes form TE Cinderella and Brit-Tea and Lashmania waterproof mascara.
For my lips I used: lipstick 02 Pink Me from TE Like An Unforgettable Kiss.
For my nail I used 03 Ring Around The Rosy from TE Fun Fair, 04 Snow Alert! from TE Mountain Calling, 02 Lovely Lavender from TE Bloom Me Up!. To draw a ribbon I used nail & cuticle tattoo liner and at the end, I sealed every thing with quick dry top coat.

Don't forget to check out posts from other Slovenian bloggers :)

Review: Ciaté nail polish

About a week ago, I saw that they started to sell Ciaté nail polishes in Slovenia! You can buy their nail polishes in DM Drogeriemarket (not all of DMs have them, though). I was searching for a shade that will go great with this fall weather (and later on winter), so I bought PP018 dangerous affair (I really like names of their nail polishes!).

The Ciaté dangerous affair is this really beautiful, gorgeous and awesome burgundy color. I am really in LOVE with it! The package which contains the polish is really something different. I like the unusual shape of the bottle and a little black ribbon on it.

The nail polish is creamy and not too thick or too runny. In my opinion it has just perfect consistency and it is really easy to work with it. The handle of brush is a little bit longer and at first I thought that it will be a problem but I quickly found out the opposite. The brush is soft and it ensures you the perfect and smooth application. It dries quickly, I did my left hand first than moved to the right hand and in time that I was done with the right hand, I could put a second coat on my left. You can took the nail polish off your fingers easily (I messed my left hand and I needed to redo it).

I'm happy that DM Drogeriemarkt Slovenia decided to sell this beauties! The price is 9,99€ per bottle and they sell (in my opinion) quite a lot of different shades. I think that every girl will find the perfect one for her.

I think that in (near) future I will have a lot of this beauties at home, I did like a lot of shades :)

If you are on of those that can't wait for this trend edition from Essence, check out Tamara's post on her blog Cherry Colors. She is a really lucky girl and received the eyeshadow palette earlier (I'm so jealous :D). She did the swatches and shared her first thoughts with us.

What are your thoughts on this Essence trend edition? What do you really wanna buy from it? I must admit that I would love to have some nail polishes (like I don't have enough of them), I really NEED eyeshadow pallet and I'm interested in glosses and eye pencils too.

My fall favorites

Outside is getting cold again and the leaves are changing their color. I really like to spend this days outside with my fiancé. We like to take long walks in nature with our new dog Ziggy.

But everything isn't so nice. Cold is really affecting my skin and I really need to take extra care of it. I started to use my facial brush on the daily basis and it just became one of those things that I can't live without. My favorite skin products are Afrodita Clean Phase cleansing gel, Garnie Micellar Water in combination with Mixa's Soothing Toner. As for skin care creams, I use two. At mornings I always use (even under my makeup) Yves Rocher's Sérum Végétal which moisturises my skin perfectly, reduces shining and reduces wrinkles. And at evening I always use Mixa's Balancing Cream.

As for my makeup and favorite colors: I just love to use my Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 eyeshadow pallet. I think that the brown shimmery shades are just perfect for this time of the year. Beside it, I also use my Too Faced Cat Eye pallet and Makeup Revolution Give Them Nightmares pallet (you can read my review of it here).

For my lips I love to use moisturising lip balms, glosses or lipsticks. Most of the time I just use my Eos lipbalm. I also love my MAC Pervette and Marc Jakobs  108 Have We Met? lipstick. I also use Kiko's Lip Scrub to make my lips smooth.

I care for my hands with L'Occitane's hand cream with shea butter. It smells really nice and my hands are soft and moisturized.

I wrote that is getting colder, so I really enjoy my evenings in, under my blanket, snuggling with my fiancé. Of course there is always tea near by. Mostly I drink green and red tea with a hint of milk.

And to be a little romantic, candles must be present! I have many candles in my drawer but my favorite right now is Yanke Candle Lemon and Lavender. It reminds me of summer and I must admit that I miss it a little.

What are your fall favorites? :)
