Weight Loss Update and Little Chit Chat

Hello to all the beautiful faces around. So as you know, a couple of posts back I proudly shared with you that I am beginning my weight loss journey. Well, that didn't happen. A week ago I've started again and surprisingly enough I'm still doing it and I really don't want to stop. In one week I've lost 1.5 kg and all day today I was thinking is it good enough to write about it in blog. YES IT IS. I know I'm not the only one who is struggling and I just want to say that we are all humans. We make mistakes. We stumble, fall, get up, clean our selves up and move on. But this post is not about that.

As you may or may not know, this spring semester I'm studying abroad. In Chech Republic to be exact. I came here not alone. With my friend and she is one of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen in my life. Imagine everyday living in a shadow of someone like that. First two months I was here, I won't lie, I was feeling down. Not because I miss everybody in Lithuania, not because it's not fun here (it really is fun), but because nothing changed. Basically I was really excited for Erasmus exchange programme. I though well, different country, different mentality maybe I will be seen differently. Not at all. Everything is the same. Everybody notices only the beautiful people. And it took me two months (actually, it took me almost 21 years) to realise that I am beautiful as well. Everybody is beautiful and your life would change only if you change your attitude, your thoughts and your perspective.

Recently it was my friend's birthday. Same girl's that I was talking about earlier and that was the moment when something changed. I just thought fuck it (pardon for my vocabulary), I want to have fun. And yes I did. I was confident, feeling beautiful and not like I was worse than any other girl in the world. Since then, I try to think like that every single day. In this short time I had so much fun. I'm smiling a lot more, I like to experiment with fashion, I go to gym with positive attitude and even when I'm sweating like a pig I feel that I'm doing something great.

So I guess, what I am trying to say that losing 1,5 kg in one week is a great achievement. Slow and steady wins the race. You should be proud of everything that you do for yourself. Lost 100 grams? Go and brag to somebody. It is still a step forward. Just don't stop until you're healthy and feeling like the best version of you.

I would be really impressed if somebody actually read to the end of this post but if you did, I hope you found it at least a little bit helpful and I can't wait to write another post about my weight loss journey in one week. I  hope you're as excited as I am. Don't forget to smile and love yourself with all of your big heart.

NEW IN: Beauty edition

Well hello there beautiful people. How are you? I'm in a super good mood because sun is shining and why be sad? Am I right? Okay, let's stop the nonsenses and chase to the cut. Today I'm going to show you a few of my latest purchases. (Wanna know a secret? I spent more then I should have..) Also, look at that photo! I can't believe I did it! It's still not perfect but I would like to say thank you to ThirteenThoughts for amazing photography tips. If it wasn't for you, I would still be taking oh-not-so-good pictures. So let's jump in!

Gabriella Salvete Bronzer Powder. I was in desperate need of a new bronzer and this one looked perfect. I really enjoy the colour, how easy it blends and the feeling on my face that it leaves. It is also hydrating which is perfect for my oh so dry skin and SPF 15 for sunny days like to day is a must must.
Ellie Young Anti-spot Compact Powder. This is a gift sent from gods. It has Salicyl acid in it which is internationally known as spot killer. After only a few uses I've noticed a change on my face and I'm really pleased with this product.
Garnier Skin Naturals BB Cream. As it sais on the packaging it is a Classic Miracle Skin Perfector. This product was recommended for me by a friend and I'm really glad I've listened to her recommendation. It is very light on your face, smoothens out your skin like air brush and for a BB cream gives a decent coverage.

Ebelin Make up and Powder Brush. I think maybe for a million years now I have needed a decent brush and finally I've invested in it. Of course, a girl can dream so I will dream for a whole set of brushes but for now, this two ended brush is a lifesaver.
Miss Sporty Mini-Me lip liner. 060 Cranberry craze. I love love love using lip liners as lipsticks. I feel it lasts loner it is more easy to apply and colours are just amazing. This one is my all time favourite and as soon as I will have more money, I will run to the store and by more colours.

That's it! I hope you enjoyed it and I will see you very soon
Lots of Love

Confessions of a Musicaholic

Hello, lovelies! Recently I've started to listen to all my old playlist's and discovered really good (at least for me) music. It's not going to be everybody's cup of tea but if you are searching for something new or want to re-discover some oldies but goldies - you are just in the right place. I will try to make this sharing-of-music-kind-of-thing as often as I can and I hope you'll enjoy it. So let's jump in!
I really enjoy the vibe and the messege of this song. The beat is easy to listen and overall it's a perfect song for chill evenings. Also it's not a bad thing to listen to lyrics of this song. Just some food for thought.

I don't understand a word in this song but i'm feeling that it's really beautiful. Honestly I could listen to it on repeat three days in a
row. It feels sexy, mysterious and amazing at the same time. One of my all time favourites for sure!

This one is for those of you who like something more upbeat and happy. But's I feel that it's not one of those songs that you hear on the radio every day at least five-ish times. Perfect for a chill gathering with friends

And finnaly, something acoustic. I'm a huge fan of covers and I have at least 5 covers of this song but this one I feel is my favourite.
Which one of these songs was your favourite? Maybe you have something similar for me to listen. I'm open for suggestions.
Have a great day!

What's in my makeup bag

Hello, my darling! So I'm leaving to Chech Republic in 8 days and I can't be more excited. But as I'm starting to pack, I've decided that it won't be any better time to show you what's usually in my makeup bag. I'm positive that when I'm all packed, my makeup bag is going to be filled with various bits and bobs that aren't supposed to be there but they are because of space saving. So without further a do, let's see what I carry on in my makeup bag!

As you can see, I don't have a lot, because I'm not a massive makeup junkie. But I have to say, I love my new makeup bag which is from NewYorker. It wasn't really expensive and it is big and really cute. On one side as you can see it says Lipsticks&More and on the other side it gives you a positive start to your day by saying Keep smilin' because it's a lovely day. And now let's go to the details!

For my face almost every time I use these four things
1. A very old compressed powder that I don't even remember it's name. But it does the job and I'm happy with it.
2. Rival de Loop Young BB Effect Makeup Foundation.
3. Rival de Loop Young BB Effect Concealer
4. And a little sponge that I use to blend my foundation and concealer

I won't lie, lip products I really love and these four are the ones that I enjoy most of the time.
1. Essence liquid lipstick. It doesn't say on the package what shade it is but it looks lovely on my lips.
2. ChupaChups lip balm is the most recent addition to my makeup bag and I can't believe it but it's really good. My lips feel soft and moisturised after every use.
3. Lime Twist Carmex Moisturising lip balm. I use this lip balm when I'm having trouble with my lips and it is the best treatment for my lips ever.
4. Technic Vintage Blue Lagoon lip balm. I like this lip balm only for it's minty fresh smell but as the product goes I don't really like it.

Finally my eyes and brows!
1. This is a brown shade liquid eye liner. I feel like black liners make my face look too harsh so I'm using this brown one and again, I'm sorry but the writing on it is all off, so I can't say the name of this product.
2. Essence Eyebrows stylist set. I've bought shadow based eyebrow filler for the first time and I'm telling you, I'm not coming back. It's amazing!
3. Rimmel London Wake Me Up Wonder'Full mascara. I never thought that I would say this about mascara but it really smells amazing! Also it's a good treatment for my eyelashes because it has cucumber vitamins in it and it makes my lashes long, thick and black. What more could you want?
So that is all! I know it's not much but I wanted to share my contents of a makeup bag anyways. I hope you've enjoyed it!
See you soon,

Happy New Year everybody! I've missed my blog so much and I have decided to write here as much as I can this year. Such a cliché, I know.. But anyways, for the first post in 2016 , I wanted to share with you a few of my New Year's resolutions. The first one is obviously to write in my blog more. To be a blogger is an old dream of mine, but as the years went by I came to a realisation that I'm not cut out for it. Despite that, no one is stopping me from trying and I really want to make it a fun hobby. 
I have big plans for 2016. Starting February I'm going to study abroad. I'm going to live in Check Republic for four months and I can't be more excited. Also, I have a resolution to visit England this summer and I'm almost positive that I'm going to do that. My brother lives there so I'm more excited to visit him, to be honest.
One of the resolutions that I've added to my list for the first time is to discover new music. I really want to listen more of what is not really my style because I am the kind of person that eventually comes to loving everything. I believe that music or any other kind of art is worth loving and it doesn't matter if you don't usually like something. Somebody created it, somebody performed and everybody should appreciate it. I would be more than happy if in the comments you could leave me some of your favourite performers or favourite songs.
The last resolution that I'm going to share with you is to photograph every single day and choose the best photo that sums up that day the best. I'm not going to post every single one of these photos but maybe, once in a while I'll share with you what I have captured.
Please tell me what are your New Year's resolutions.
See you soon,

What's in my bag

What's in my bag

First of all, I hope you had an amazing Christmas and will have even more amazing New Year! I've been wanting to do a "What's in my bag" for ages now, but my bag was very old and not good looking so I've waited for Santa to bring me new one. And he did! I got this gorgeous small bag with a shoulder strap and it's perfect for me, becouse I don't like to carry anything in my hands. This bag is from MANGO and it didn't cost a lot since winter sales now began. Okay, so let's see what a carry on in this little purse of fab.

What's in my bag

Not all of these items are always in my bag. If I have to carry something more important I make a few adjustmens, but that happens rarely so this is basically what lives in my bag. I have this gorgeous notebook which always comes in handy and it was a gift from my friends for my birthday. It has a hard cover and I'm in love with it. I also try to have my sunglasses with me in case Sun decides to be very annoying. Don't get me wrong, I love Sun, but my eyes are having a hard time to adjusting to it. I have two phones for two sim cards and they both are equaly important for me so they are always with me. And I just can not mention the amazing panda case that always puts a smile on my face. Lastly, like milions of other girls, I carry a mini make up bag to always look fabulous and put together.

What's in my bag
What's in my bag
You probably thought that I forgot to mention my wallet but believe me, I did not. I'm just so excited for it that I decided to leave to an end. This gorgeous baby pink wallet was a Christmas present from my brother and it is now my baby. It's so pretty I wanna cry. That's how weird I am. It goes not event with my new bag but also with my shoes which are also in baby pink color. I think I'm just going through chic baby pink faze and I'm loving it.
So that is going to be it. I hope you've enjoyed and please, tell me in the comments what do you always carry in your bag besides your phone and wallet. And look, my bag is so cute that even cat doesn't mind sleeping with it.

What's in my bag
Lots of kisses,

Stop the hate

So, I know it's been a while since I've updated my blog, but I'm the kind of person, that realy loves the quality of stuff I'm posting but not the quantity and with all of my studies and extra activities, I just haven't had time for a decent blog post.
Today I just want to talk with you on a subject that have been bothering me for quaite some time and it is HATE ON INTERNET. Since I'm not in any way famous or known on internet, I don't have experience with heavy hating myself but being a loyal fan of youtube, I've noticed that a lot of people that I admire is dealing with very ungreatful and kind of stupid people. I just don't understand the point of leaving awful comments and negativity for a person that is doing their best to entertain us. NOBODY'S PERFECT. You can't expect that even the most beloved person on youtube won't make any mistakes. They are people, just like the rest of us and I'm getting mad even writing this, because I just can't understand why all of this even has to be said. I can guarantee that almost all of us has gone threw bullying, so instead of pouring all of your negative emotions that you get at school or on internet, try to do something better. BE a BETTER person. BE a SMARTER person. It won't make you feel bad. It will make you feel better for doing a good job and it will definitely make somebody else feel great. I think life should be all about that.
I don't know, maybe I'm just writing all of this pointlessly, but even if this post will be read by only ten people - it is a good start.
I feel like internet should be a place to run away from your problems for just a little bit, but not for collecting more and more problems.
I know that I can't spread this message all by myself, but please, use hashtags that spread positivity or just don't let the bullies win. Treat others in a way, that you would love to be treated. One person at a time, internet can change if we all try.
Congratulations if you read this far, I know that my thougts are not very easy to understand, but it is hard to write something important in a foreign language, but I hope that you understand me and you are with me. With all the love in the world, Simona.
