Being a beauty lover, I do not limit myself with purchasing goodies from Sephora and Ulta Beauty only. I also enjoy exploring new beauty launches in the department stores and especially Bloomingdale’s as it’s located in a dangerous proximity to my house. Thanks to ‘Bloomi’ I found one of my favorite toners, explored the benefits of using an anti-aging serum, and fell in love with this luxurious perfume. Imagine how happy I was to receive a so-called Bonus Box from Bloomingdale’s and Rakuten (my affiliate network)! The box includes five recent beauty launches that are available for purchase at Bloomingdales.com and here comes my review on each of those beauty goodies.
It’s a midterm season now at NYU where, as you know, I’m currently studying media and communications. Many of you asked me on Insta Stories and Snapchat if I can share any tips on how I’m staying productive while in college and today I decided to share my mini-guide on how to be an organized student. By any means, I’m not an expert in organizing—those are just strategies that I’m following myself throughout high school and college.
When it comes to jewelry, I’m never consistent. One day I’m wearing all of the bracelets I have in my collection, another one I’m too lazy to even put on earrings. I guess it really depends on the style of the outfit I’m selecting: some looks require an additional pop of style, while others entail simplicity in my accessory choices. Ever since I launched my line of pearl earrings, I’ve been trying to revamp my jewelry collection with some staple pieces and get rid of those never used jewels that get dusty in my draws.
It’s time to announce my second costume that I’m planning on wearing this season. As you might have guessed from the title, it’s Harley Quinn from the Suicide Squad movie released this year. You probably know that every year I’m trying on finding a few couples costumes options so Ben and I can pick our costumes within the same theme. Needless to say, that the Joker and Harley Quinn is one of the best Halloween costume options for this year, as those are fun, easy to repeat, and very distinct. I’m not sure if I have enough time to record a Joker’s tutorial this season, but I already tested my Harley Quinn look. Get ready for some makeup craziness, ladies!
You know how it goes: you are going on a shopping trip along and then end up sending photos of your outfits to friends so you can ask for their opinion? I do it all the time! My mom’s phone is full of photos of my shoes, bags, and other items I’ve been hunting for. Same goes for Ben: he is my on demand fashion adviser who knows that if I’m sending him a blurry photo with a question mark underneath, it’s his primary responsibility to immediately provide his opinion on that particular piece. Luckily to all of my friends, I recently explored a new iPhone app that allows sending your “to buy or not to buy” requests not only to closest friends but also to the bigger fashion community. The app is called Pin and Tucker and it’s a cool new way to shop, save money, and interact with your friends.
I test a lot of new, cool beauty products every single day and I was thinking that you guys would love to know my thoughts on those. Until recently, not all of such reviews make it into the blog being available only for my Insta Stories followers only. I figured that those first impressions could be an area of interest for a broader group of readers and decided to launch a new series on my blog called Hot or Not where we’ll be discussing whether some of the trendy beauty products are actually worth the hype.

It didn’t occur to me before I wore this look to NYFW that some people in my college think that I’m trying… to look younger! I’ve been studying just for few weeks at NYU and I’m already tired of comments like “Come on, you still look young!” or “Are you are a millennial or a Gen Xer?” Excuse me, fellow students, since when 30 is considered to be “old?!” Continue Reading
I don’t know if you guys noticed, but this season everybody seems to be fascinated with bold brows. With “no makeup” makeup looks hitting the runways and streets as a storm, beautifully defined brows are the only area on our faces that requires our attention this season—the rest could stay natural. Let’s play the eyebrow game right and learn how to achieve #browfection with the services and Strut Boldly™ products by European Wax Center® (EWC). Continue Reading
