I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT IT IS NOT SO EASY TO BE A HAIRDRESSER…

Few weeks ago I had a lovely pleasure to be a little experimental rabbit for one of the juniors at my work place. He asked me to do blow dry my hair because he needed to practice. Well I agreed, why not? I thought. He washed my hair first and he added some treatment on it. Which was lovely. What can I say, it was nice moment when I do not have to do anything. Unfortunately I do not get often that kind of moments… 

But let’s come back to the topic! So after wash and conditioning and treatment I was sitting on the chair looking in the mirror and waiting what this lovely junior is going to do with my hair. He brushed my hair with tangle teezers brush and then his teacher came to explain him how to share hair to the different parts to make it easier to blow dry. OK I thought it is not difficult easy peasy. But after a moment I noticed it is not so easy anymore. Especially because of my hair which is very soft and smooth and after wash it’s going everywhere where shouldn’t really go…
I wish you good luck my friend I thought.  But keep moving! He took a brush and hair dryer and started the blow dry. First of all he was to harsh but after telling him about it he was gentle. For a moment I was afraid that he will tear most of my hair. But lucky me I was OK.  Later I could hear teachers words:
“You need to pull the hair up”
” you need to make it higher”
“Rember to hold it nice and gentle”
” use bigger brush”
“Yes that’s good”
So after that I realised that the hairdressers job it is not easy at all. They need strength in their hands like a superhero. They need to pay more attention to not to burn the clients hair. They need patient. They need to have some imagination how to mange the hair.
For someone who never done blow dry in his life it looks easy.  That happened to me. Sometimes when I look at the hairdressers I think it’s easy. Looks easy! But it is not easy at all! They have so much practice and experience that for us people it doesn’t look  complicated at all.
So after 45 minutes blow dry my hair I was sitting with the rollers all over my head. Lovely look almost like an unidentified flying object. Hmmm great I thought… everyone loves me now! Looked strange. Lucky me that I was sitting somewhere in the corner when no one could see me. Had to stay like that until the rollers cool down. My junior hairdresser spray some hair spray on me and started to remove the rollers. Final effect was lovely. I did like it. My hair was smoother and had a bit of wave on the end. Also more volume which I really needed.
People who never worked with the hairdressers don’t know that it is a hard job. It is not easy to mange the hair. It’s not easy to give them more volume. It’s not easy to make them curly and definitely it is not easy to take a hair dryer and a brush and blow dry hair with the arms and hands up!
So next time when you have hairdresser appointment please respect them, be nice and remember they do everything for you to make you feel better because better hair day definitely help us to be in the better mood.

HOW TO DO QUICK MAKE UP???

Yesterday I had a pleasure to do make up for a lady on her birthday day. She was going for a party with the closest family and friends. She had a beautiful eyes and skin and I couldn’t stop myself to ask her to take a picture on the end for my blog. Luckily she agreed 🙂 

We had only 30 mins to do the full make up and smoky eyes. I quickly refreshed her face with Marrocan cleansing milk and then rose water from Chantacaille. Then I use La Mer renewal oil because her skin was dehydrated and on top of that I used moisturising cream from La Mer.
Not heaving much time I quickly picked up minimum of the products which I was going to use on her. I have started the make up from the eyes. It is better when you have to do smoky eyes then you know that if some eyeshadows drop on the cheek you can clean it without touching the foundation. Her eyes had dark shadows so I used orange concealer from Cover Fx because as you probably know orange colour corrective concealer reduce darkness on the face, not only around the eyes. And then on top of that I used the creamy concealer from Cover Fx G Light to make her colours looking the same. The next step were eyeshadows. To brights up her eye lid I used Dusk eyeshadow from Laura Mercier as a base and then Bamboo on the half of the eye lid follow by Noir Laura Mercier as a smoky finish. It looked really nice on her. I finish it off with the Chantacaille Le Stylo Ultra Slim Liquid  Eyeliner.
Then it was the face time. I started from a bit of experimental point by mixing Surrat foundation with Chantacaille Liquid Lumiere Brilliance so the foundation got glow and radiance bust. Then we used a bit of Laura Mercier blush which is called Lush Nectarine and finish it off with Chantacaille light loose powder.
The last thing to do was the ladies lips. We decided to make them natural because she had strong eyes so I used Chantacaille Nuance lip liner and lip chic Primrose. Very beautiful colours.
That was a really quick full make up. Lovely for evening dinner or just meeting up with friends. 

I DID ENJOY MY GYM CLASSES! THAT WAS A BIG SURPRISE FOR ME :)


As I have said recently I joined the gym and started to go for a classes. It was really nice to visit that place after more than 5 years not being there. The training was very intense. It was called Pure Dance and it was African style dance. I had to really move my body and bump. Loved it a lot! Every move was about being sexy and being more comfortable. Turning, jumping, moving, running and dancing was amazing. Sweating like a pig but lasted till the end. I have drunk lots of water which is very difficult for me in every day style but I work on it as well. I am actually trying to drink as much water as I can.
I will definetly come back there. It is such a good feeling when you have done something good for your body and for your health! I felt stronger and full of energy! I couldnt even go to bed that evening because my energy was ready to explode. I understand that it is difficult to motivate yourself but it is worth every single effort. After one time being in the gym I feel much better and much more comfortable. I belive I can fly! My food regime changed and life energy is completely different as well. Next classes are on Tuesday in the evening. This time Pure Combat is waiting for me and I will definetly write down few words about it as well.
I will keep the fingers crossed for all of you who is planning to change their lifestyle  for healthier and with a hint of sport. I wish you all good luck and lots of strength to keep doing it!

OMOROVICZA… DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THIS AMAZING BRAND???

​I will be completely honest with you. I know that brand for quite a long time but never had a time to write about it or just wanted the post to be perfect because it is one of my favourite brands and I really felt in love with the products. Anyway this post is also dedicate to my dear friend from work who loves Omorovicza a lot. 
So today is a day and I am going to nicely surprise her.
I have made some research and found out few interesting things about the brand.
The Omorovicza story starts actually around 2000 years ago when the thermal waters from Hungary have been discovered. Hungary is well known from thermal waters which have lots of minerals and they are much more better and healthier than in any other place. This waters help with heeling and make the skin nice and soft. Because of the huge amount of the minerals they help with general health as well which is just amazing. The unique combination of minerals found in this waters has a remarkable anti-ageing benefits.
Why is that? – some of you might ask.
Because the crust of the earth is thinner in Hungary than elsewhere so waters absorb beneficial minerals more effectively.
 
So in 1800 the Omorovicza Family built the amazing and beautiful Racz spa in Budapest  and this is the time when the proper story starts. The spa was successfully running and was just amazing. Two hundred years later Stephen took his future wife Margaret to have a bath in the spa because she has never been in this place before. Margaret was just amazed with the condition of her skin after the bath in thermal waters. She enjoyed it a lot and the effect was just perfect.
After the beautiful transformation they found the Nobel-Prize Laboratory to change this magic water in to the skincare range. Margaret and Stephen wanted actually close the revitalising effects of these healing waters to vim and vigour to the skin and reveal new beauty.
They have spent time to discover different cultures and traditions to helps them understand women and also men needs and develop innovative and exciting products and rituals.
The products – I must admit – are just amazing! They are good for sensitive skin for problematic skin and for normal skin. Personally it is one of my favourite brands. Love the tuxture and the smell. Love the feel on my skin.
I have a few favourite products from Omorovicza which I can not live without them. First one is the Thermal Cleansing Balm. Which has a specific black colour but it is amazing to remove eye make up and face make up. You just need to use a wet cloth to remove it. Easy to use, soft and lovely product. 
Another one is the Illuminating Moisturiser which is amazing under the make up. Makes your skin smooth and glowy and makes the foundation looks better and last longer. The smell is lovely and love the light texture on my face.
I love the blue diamond concentrate. This beautiful serum makes the skin plum and fights effectively with visible signs of ageing. Very lovely light texture makes me feel really special. Love it a lot and I would recommend that serum to everyone. Well, almost everyone.
The next product from my favourites it the Queen of Hungary mist. It is a lovely water to refresh your make up or just your skin. It gives you glow and radiance. Smells amazing. Very fresh and cooling mist. I have few more lovely products which are definitely on my list to write about them but in this post is really wanted to concentrate mostly on the Omorovicza brand because it is worth it to know a bit more about that particular brand.
On the end very important thing is that the Omorovicza products don’t contain any parabens, petrochemicals, pegs, silicon, sodium laureate, sulfate, synthetic colours and synthetic fragrance . So they are definitely very healthy for your skin.
  
If you would like to try a good quality products and very natural ones then Omorovicza is definitely a right brand for you. Your skin will love it and at the same time you are going to love it as well. The results are visible very quickly. I have noticed a big difference on my skin after few days from when I started to use a beautiful blue diamond serum. 

TIME FOR A BIG CHANGE

Didn’t write for a while because I was on holidays and unfortunately the Internet was like a medicine there… so I didn’t have it at all. But it was a good time for me to have a rest and think about few things.

Coming back to London full of calories and crap food I realised that this is an amazing time to have a new start in my life. To change my life for healthy style. I am a smoker so need to stop that or at least make it less. My food regime is not bad but I have moments when I eat very bad things. So from now on I am going to change my life and my family life completely. New me and a healthy life style. I am not an exercise person so from now on I will do exercises twice a week. I still will be writing about beauty products and brands but let’s make my blog beautiful not only from make up side but also lifestyle. 

So a new start has arrived keep fingers crossed because I am going to share with you my food ideas as well. 

NEED HYDRATION!!!

Recently I have noticed that my skin seams to be a bit dehydrated. Lack of water, quick life style, little toddler at home, pollution and many more makes my skin a bit dry. I am getting older as well and the age change the condition of the skin. All the dryness can be caused by to much of the sun or winter air. 
Just to let you know that when the skin is dry it is not a good sign. When it’s oily it doesn’t help us as well. The best of course is the normal skin but only small percentage of us is lucky enough to have one. It’s really rare to have a normal skin especially with the environment and pollution. Dirty air, chemicals, sun, not healthy life style, toxic food… all of this effect badly our skin. For most of us the first sign of unhealthy skin is dullness, lack of glow and dryness.
But please do not worry, we can still fix it. It will not be pernament if you start slowly repair your problem. I am not saying we will stop ageing but at least we can start to prevent ageing process.  If you leave it for later then belive me you are in trouble!

I know that you will tell me that condition of the skin depends on genes. Yes! Partly it is true! But it also depends on the way how we take care of our skin. If in your family are good genes then the visible ageing process will appear later. It doesn’t mean that you are not getting older. I would say that it is always better to prevent instead of being 40 and think about plastic surgery  which will cost you much more money than the skin care products  and it’s painful as well.

I know also that all of us has different skin type. Some has dry or oily or combination skin. That is why I would love to introduce you to a lovely product which you can use by itself or mix it with other products and works out on all skin types.
The renewal oil from La Mer is just amazing for all of us. It has miracle broth and sunflower oil which helps to moisturising our skin. Just to let you know that this is a dry oil so it is not greasy and you can use it even under the make up.
If you have a sensitive skin do not worry as well it is definitely the right product for you. It provides deep nourish without being heavy and like I said earlier it’s suitable for all skin types.
Yes! It is an expensive product! But because it’s an oil you use only small amount of it. 2 to 3 drops it’s perfectly fine for your face. It helps a lot. Remember that if you do not want to use it for the day you can always add it to your night time skin care regime. That way your skin rests and takes the most what we will give her.

So if you would like to stop having a dry skin start to use something. I highly recommend this product because my skin is also sensitive and it made it looking really good. 

ALL ABOUT SURRATT

You know that I like to write about different make up and skin care brands. Today I am going to introduce you Surratt. 
Surrat is a make up brand disign by Troy Surratt a top make up artist in New York. This make up products are mostly inspired on futuristic spirit of Tokyo.
Troy Surratt spend nearly a decade travelling to Japan for the best in beauty to create his products.

There is a nice range of products in Surratt. You can find concealers, eyeshadows, blushers, mascara, pallets which you can make by yourself, brow pencils, lip pencils and few different range of lipsticks starting from mate pencil and finishing on very glossy lipstick.
From this year Surratt has also foundations which are just amazing. The tuxture is very light but the coverage is medium. They look just brilliant on the face. Very natural and glowy but at the same time cover imperfections on our skin.
The difference between Surratt and other brands is that they have pressed and cream eyeshadows in one. So that means that eyeshadows look like powder but they actually creamy. The same thing is with blushers. This products can be used by person who likes powder but doesn’t like cream and the other way around.

Surratt is a really lovely brand. Great for professionals and people who love make up. The quality of the products is just amazing. They selling really well and easy. Lots of make up artists would definitely recommend Surratt.
Personally I love the brushes. They are just unbelievable. Natural hair, hand made with the wooden handle. They are orgasmic. Lovely, simple package of the products. Easy to use and they look lovely.

On the end of my post i would like to add that few weeks ago I had a great pleasure to receive some products from Surratt. I am so happy to have them. I would like to take that opportunity to say a big thank you to Surratt for awarded me with this beautiful gift.
I will definetly use everything. All the colours what they pick up are perfect for me.
So if you need quick, not complicated and good quality make up – Surratt is definitely one of the best choices. 

BEAUTIFUL BREAD

 

Being at home for the last few days made me think about being beautiful a bit more.  There are different types of beauty.

Could be beautiful hart which makes people to be good and helpful for others.
Could be beautiful body which shows how hard they work at the gym.
Could be beautiful mind which makes them to have a pure thoughts.
Could be beautiful face with healthy skin with glow and radiance.
But what about beautiful inside??? What about our liver, stomach, guts??? What can we do to make it healthy and beautiful???
There is so many things to make us beautiful inside but healthy eating is the most important. So I had a bit of time to discover a lovely blog which is in Polish and that girl is just crazy healthy. I found the recipe  for a brilliant bread. Personally I am a big fun of breads. Love them so much that sometimes I think I wouldn’t be able to live without one.

WWW.MAJLAA.PL shared with the readers her recipe.

Ingredients:
150g kidney nuts
115g sunflower seeds
115g pumpkin seeds
25g flax seeds
30g almonds
25g raisins
40g dry plums
4 eggs
2 teaspoons of salt

You can choose any ingredients you would like you can change them as well for different ones. You can use peanuts, figs,dry fruits… anything what you like. The only condition is that the total weight of the all ingredients together has to be 500g.

The way to prepare it:
This is actually the easiest bread I have ever made in my life.
The eggs you need to beat until little white bubbles appear. All other ingredients you need to mix together and if some of them are to big you need to crash them to make it smaller.
Don’t forget to add some salt and then you need to pour it on the special baking form with the baking paper.
You should bake it an hour in 160 degrees and then wait until cool.
This bread is just brilliant. It is a lovely snack if you need to munchkin something but also a lovely peace of something nice to make a sandwich. Lovely idea is to use it with cheese and greapes.
So you all enjoy I am going to bake another one tomorrow.
