It's (at least) 15 degrees, the sun is shining... So why not talk about Zoella's winter collection?! 😂 I got this little set a while back when it was crazy discounted and I seriosly loved it: ♥️ Snow Polished is a gritty sugar scrub with a fresh sweet scent. It's thick and pampering, lathers slightly and leaves the skin very smooth. The only trouble is that it gets really hard when it's cold (my bathroom doesn't have any heating) and it's practically impossible to squeeze the contents out. So I had to wait  until warmer days set in and the scrub softened! ♥️ Snow Smooth is pure love - there's nothing I don't like about this luxuriously nourishing body butter. It smells divine (something really comforting and blissful), it melts on the skin and absorbs easily leaving it pampered and so so soft. I wish it came in a larger tub!

This is THE best Urban Decay palette I've seen so far - in terms of shades and in terms of quality. If you need the deets, there's a lengthy review on the blog ♥️

To continue on the topic of oils, I was really happy to be able to try two lightweight options on my hair. 📌 Chia Seed Oil, by Natural World: a really really lightweight oil! My hair drank it up almost imediately after applying it to my ends, no greasy residue left. Unfortunately, it was just too light for my ends which are rather dry, so it didn't do a good job at softening and nourishing them. I can imagine this will be god-sent for people with fine/greasy hair who like to apply their oil all over without fear of weighing down. 📌 Moroccanoil Light: it's as potent at softening as the original one, but a tad lighter - again, aimed at fine hair. It tames and makes the hair shinier. As for healthier, I don't really know as my ends are forever splitting due to the length (while my roots get greasy pretty quickly). Have you tried any good and lightweight hair oils? Tell me your faves in the comments!

I love nourishing oils and I cannot lie! 😂 These two by Alverde are pure love in terms of scent and texture, a real pleasure to use and feel great on the skin. Check out the review on my blog for more - link in bio!

I simply ❤️❤️❤️ travel sized cosmetics! Not only for their cute little pots and bottles, but because they give me the opportunity to try different products without committing to a full size (I'm a blogger and I have at least three opened bottles of almost each type of product I use at any given moment, no matter how hard I try to stick to just one). So, a brief sunmary of these goodies:
📌 bareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion: a serum with amazing lightweight formula which sinks in right away and leaves skin very soft and supple. Subtly scented.
📌 Deborah Mitchell Heaven Peppermint Clarifying Hydrogel: a watery gel which doesn't feel great on my skin after it sinks. A few angry pimples appeared while I was using this, so not really happy with it. Unscented.
📌 Melvita Extraordinary Oil: A tad disappointed by the formulation, but in love with the scent. It's certainly not as rich as had hoped for, and leaves my dry skin patches in need of more TLC. At least it smells of some sort of candy, lovely and refreshing.
📌 L'Occitane The Vert & Bigarade: a summer fragrance which transports you to lush blooming gardens. I'm in love with this invigorating eau de toilette, it's the perfect balance of green notes from Southern France!

Tried any of these?

If you were just as excited about this cleansing stick, you will be equally disappointed. This week my blogging game is strong - a post about this guy is waiting for you at www.maquilab.com!

Sugar scrubs are not something new but until recently there were more body sugar scrubs than face ones. Actually, I've tried only one on my face, by Korean brand Klairs. So I'm pretty curious to use these lovely looking scurbs by L'Oreal. They should be suitable for the lips but this is something I'm not really sure will work out for me - tried the Nourish one and was disgusted by the perfume-like flavour. 😂 Have you tried them?

Pretty disappointed with this one. It's not doing anything different than a regular rose water spray (what did I expect anyways?!) and besides, it contains alcohol. 😔 So, nothing to write home about - just a refreshing mist with rose fragrance which costs far too much.

I wish I was more consistent in blogging and instagramming but to be honest, I just don't feel like it much these days. The years of keeping up with a strict posting schedule are gone - I feel much more satisfied with the result when I take my time.

The pressure is real, though - so many people out there doing so many amazing things, you can easily feel like you're lagging behind. My way of viewing it? I have more time to focus on posts which make me happy, and I have more time to appreciate the amazing stuff everyone else is doing. I sometimes prefer to spend 10mins scrolling and liking rather than posting my own photo. I don't feel like it's a competition, no matter the fact that there are dozens of blog/insta gurus telling you you MUST post daily, you MUST keep engagement rates high, you MUST grow with x% monthly... I say fcuk off, this competition ain't worth my time because it's a competition against an algorithm. This is why I cherish each like and appreciate it even more. Because it's not a stat, to me it's a person. Hope this doesn't sound creepy!

I may be taking this a bit too seriously because it's part of my job and a part I don't like. Being a social media manager can be all sorts of exciting, but knowing you're trying to beat a machine built specifically to not let you beat it (organically) can be a bit disheartening. 
Let me know your thoughts about all the craze to "beat" the algorithm in the comments!

Sunday... Time to unwind. To take care of your soul and your skin. To dream. To be lazy and not feel guilty about it. To be selfish. And calm. Calm above all. 😊
