Skincare and Hair Care Haul & Review

Hello, beautiful reader!

I’m here again to show you some products I bought and tried out in the last couple of weeks.

Tell me in the comments, how are you and how is your summer going! I’d really like to know. 😊

I hope you’ll enjoy this post! Let’s start.

HAIR CARE

1. head&shoulders Anti-Dandruff Shampoo in Menthol

haircare1

The first item I want to talk about is this shampoo. I know that there’s this trend “no poo” on the internet, and I have to say, I used baking soda and apple cider vinegar on my hair for about a year, and it helped, but I wasn’t really satisfied. If you have really damaged hair from all the hair products, I recommend you to try out this as a cure, because it will heal your hair. But in the last couple of months, my hair didn’t really tolerate it, so I started using shampoos again. I have used head&shoulders before, but then I tried out other brands, and I have to say that this shampoo makes my hair look a lot better than other shampoos. As it says on the package, it cools the scalp and removes dandruff, and it also helps with grease. It’s a great product.

2. AVON Advance Techniques Conditioner

This one was actually a gift for me, so I didn’t purchase it. I have slightly oily scalp, so I only use this conditioner on the ends of my hair, and only if I feel that my hair needs some moisture. It makes the hair really soft, and if you have dry hair or you color it, I recommend this.

SKINCARE

1. Balea ‘Jamaica Vibes’ Shower Gel

This shower gel… IS MY LIFE!! It smells amazing, it says it has pineapple and flamingo flower scents in it, and together they smell like a really yummy candy that I’d really like to eat. But don’t eat it! After showering it makes me feel really fresh and it gives even more summer feel. It’s a great product, it’s from dm, which is a drugstore in Austria, Germany and Hungary (and maybe some more countries, I don’t know), but if you live around here, definitely check this one out.

2. Balea ‘Bye Bye Unicorn’ Shower Gel

bodycare2.JPG

My sister got me this shower gel, and this is so funny. I laughed so hard just on the package. 😄 Anyways, it says it has the scents of stars and clouds, and to be honest, I’ve never smelt stars or clouds before, but if they smell like this, then I want to live in the sky. It has a sweet coconut scent to it, and it’s really calming and pleasant.

3. Nivea Pure&Natural Body Moisturizer

So, translating, it says body milk, or something like that. Basically it’s a body lotion, but it doesn’t have a thick consistency, it’s really lightweight and fast absorbing. I was searching for a body lotion exactly like this, and it was on sale, and it costed about a dollar, which is a great price I think. It smells really nice, and it says it’s for very dry skin, so I guess it’s going to be great in the winter too. Plus, because it has mostly natural ingredients in it, it is suitable for my sensitive skin, especially after shaving or waxing.

4. Himalaya Herbals Neem & Turmeric Protecting Soap

bodycare4.JPG

Himalaya Herbals is one of my favourite brands. My favourite product from them is the Nourishing Skin Cream which is really nice for the skin and lightweight. But, for the soap! So, I have combination to oily skin, and it gets really dry on the outer parts of my face, but extremely oily on my T-zone. For this, my dermatologist recommended me to use soaps for facial cleansing. Well, I have to say, it works pretty well. After I use this, in the morning I go over it with sunscreen and moisturizer, and in the evening with moisturizer, which I sometimes mix with argan oil, because that’s good for even oily skin. This soap makes my face feel soft, it doesn’t dry my face out, and it also smells great.

5. Dove DermaSpa Goodness Hand Cream

I bought this hand cream not so long ago, when I started to work at our local museum. We washed finds such as bones, pebbles and pieces of ceramic dishes. Obviously, my hands dried out, and this hand cream helped a lot. It’s fast absorbing and it’s made with cell moisturizers, and because of those, your hands will be evenly beautiful, radiant and velvety. I use this every night, right before I go to bed, and in the morning I wake up with the most gorgeous looking hands ever. It’s that great. Really great.

6. Nivea Powder Touch Anti-Perspirant

bodycare6

I normally don’t use these type of sprays, but since I even sweat off my regular stift formulated deodorants, I started using this one. I have to say, it’s pretty cool. I think for the summer, these types are the best of anti-perspirants, because if you sweat it off, you just spray some back, and it won’t be gathered in small deo-sweat balls. Plus, it has a great smell to it, which is always a must for this. And it absorbs really fast, leaving a nice powdery finish after itself. I really like this product!

So, that was it for today, my dear reader. I really hope, you liked this post.

Have beautiful day or night! Take care! 😉

Kisses,

TAM Beauty haul, part 2 – review & swatches

Hello, again!

I’m here today with the other palette, that I bought from TAM Beauty.

If you haven’t seen my last post about the Freedom Makeup London #ProArtist Ultimate Mattes palette yet, just click here, and you can check it out: https://vegetarianfashionandmakeuplover.wordpress.com/2017/07/27/tam-beauty-haul-part-1-review-swatches/

So, today I have my other palette, also from Freedom Makeup London, and it’s called the Pro Decadence Today’s Tonight.

IMG_2822.JPG

Also, I’d like to get the one with the beautiful bright colors from the Pro Decadence palettes, it’s called Clubbed to Death. I think that has really fun colors, so if you’re into that, definitely check out https://www.tambeauty.com/. They have really great products for really affordable prices.

So, for the package, I would say the same things with this one than with the other, except that this one a bit harder to open up (maybe it’s just with this one, I don’t know…). So it’s 9/10 for the outside, plus it comes with an applicatior, and I know everyone hates these, but it’s actually pretty awesome for packing the colors onto the lid.

IMG_2826.JPG

The inside is really pretty, the colors are harmonizing, and this palette only contains really creamy, easy to blend and perfectly pigmented shadows. In this palette the shadows don’t have names, but it doesn’t bother me, so the inside is 10/10.

Now, let’s see the swatches.

1,2,3,4,5
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light

So, the first shade is a pretty fair pastel pink skin color. It’s great for setting the eyeshadow primer or for making a cut crease. The second shadow is a gorgeous champagne color, which personally I would use as a highlighter on my face, because it’s beautiful and not overly shimmery. The third shade is kind of a transition shade for me. The fourth is a pretty bronze, which is a great color for all over the lid, or also as a highlighter if you have darker skintone. And the last shade of this five is a nice mauve color, which is one of my favourite colors from the palette.

6,7,8,9,10
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light

The first two colors of this five are great bronze colors. They are very pigmented, and they are kind of metallic, not much shimmery. The other three are blacks, and the first one has more and smaller shimmers, the second is matte and the third has less but bigger shimmers. They are really stunning.

11,12,13,14,15.JPG
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light

From these, the first four are matte and the last is shimmery, the first is (same as the first one in the palette) is good for setting the eyeshadow primer or to cut the crease. The second is excellent as a transition shade, the third is also my favourite (you didn’t think, did you? 😄), it’s like the other dusky rose, but a bit darker. The fourth one is also great as a transition color, or to darken the outer corners. The shimmery color would be lovely as an inner corner highlight, when you’re creating a rosy look.

16,17,18,19,20.JPG
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light

The last five. They are just… stunning. 😍😄 So, the first one is again, a bronzy shade, but it has a hint of pink. The second shade is a wonderful dusty lavender color, and I love this one too. The third one is a really interesting shade. It’s a gorgeous dark, deep greyish purple, kind of a grape color. The fourth is a shimmery, rosy color, and the last one is also really interesting. The base of it is black, but it has a darker pink reflect.

So, in summary, this palette really is worth it. If you’re on the budget and you’re looking for an amazing palette, I recommend buying this one.

That was it for today! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it was helpful.

Have an awesome day or night! Take care, I love you!

TAM Beauty haul, part 1 – review & swatches

Hello, dear reader!

A few weeks ago I bought 2 eyeshadow palettes, both from Freedom Makeup London, and I thought I share with you my review on them. I actually ordered them online from TAM Beauty.

For first, I’ll write about the Freedom Makeup London #ProArtist Ultimate Mattes palette.

háttér

The outside of it, I think is really nice, plain black, and inside it has a big mirror, which can be useful. Also inside, the eyeshadows have names, and it makes the whole product’s feel a bit high end. So the palette’s look for me is a 10/10.

img_2836.jpg

So, for the quality of the shadows, I would give an 8/10, because there are mostly really nice, buttery and easy to blend products in the palette, but a few of it feels tough and a tiny bit less pigmented, but otherwise, it’s really amazing.

Now, let’s see the swatches.

1234-e1501171089958.jpg
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light; from left to right: Ultimate, Matte, Pro, Artist

These four shadows are kind of skin color for me, as you can see on the upper picture, so they don’t really show up on my skin, but they are really soft and easy to blend.

5,6,7,8.JPG
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light; from left to right: Experience, First, Cool, Finish

The first three is also a bit darker skin color type shadows, and the last one is a really nice medium brown, great as a transition shade. I don’t know why, but I realized, that these four are a bit harder in formula, but they are easy to blend anyways.

9,10,11,12.JPG
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light; from left to right: Latter, Skill, Principal, End

Skill is one of my favourite color from the whole palette. It is a beautiful pale rose color, which I love, and because I have green eyes, it makes them brighter. Principal and End are more harder in formula, but they are pretty too.

13,14,15,16.JPG
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light; from left to right: Mute, Practice, Lead, Smart

The first two, Mute and Practice are great transition shades, and the second two are really nice for example to darken the outer corners of the eyes. These ones are really really creamy in texture and they blend out easily.

17,18,19,20.JPG
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light; from left to right: Soft, Ace, Highest, Flat

Soft is a really pretty pastel lavender color, this is also one of my favourites. Ace and Flat are a bit harder, but not that much. Highest is a perfect outer corner shade in my opinion.

21,22,23,24.JPG
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light; from left to right: Qualify, Boss, Tone, Finest

If you’d like to create a smokey eye, these shades, and the next ones are perfect for you. From this quad, Boss is a hint harder, but not noticeably. Tone and Finest are gorgeous plum shades, which is also great for green eyes!

25,26,27,28
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light; from left to right: Expert, Trained, Able, Tough

Expert is a darker greyish plum color, and you can use it as an “all over the lid” color with some mascara, or you can also deepen the outer corners. These are also really creamy ones.

29,30,31,32.JPG
Upper picture: with flash, lower picture: natural light; from left to right: Agile, Proficient, Dark, Slick

The last four are the darkest, and also the greatest for a deeper smokey eye. Agile, Proficient and Dark are creamy, Slick feels a bit like charcoal, but it is very pigmented, especially if you wet your brush and then dip in to the eyeshadow.

So, that’s it for today, I really hope you enjoyed it, and you’ll come back later!

Thank you for reading! Have a wonderful morning, afternoon or night, wherever you are! 😘 Take care!

Bye,

Food&Drink

What I ate today 😋

Hello, darlings!

Today I thought I’ll show you what I ate. I’m vegetarian since February, so I’m not eating meat or fish. If you’d like me to tell you about my thoughts on vegetarianism, then leave a comment below or like this post.

So, let’s start!

For breakfast I ate oatmeal with banana, blackberry and flax seeds on top. Flax seeds are really great for you if you’re vegetarian or you don’t like to eat fish, because they are high in Omega-3, which helps to reduce the risk of cancer and heart attack.

After breakfast, which was at about 9AM, I studied for my exams, and I didn’t even get hungry, just at 2:30PM.

So, for lunch my mom made vegetarian pizza and it was super delicious!! 😍

She made the the pizza dough and then she put ketchup on the top. After that she packed it with frozen veggies (carrots, peas and cauliflowers) and also a red onion. Then it went to the oven and later she grated some cheese on the top of it.

A couple hours after lunch, in the afternoon I did some exercises, such as crunches, lunges, squats and some other stuff.

My dinner was at about 7PM, and since I wasn’t really hungry, I ate two puffed rice cakes (is it how you call them?) with cocoa flavoured peanut butter and bananas on top.

IMG_2224.JPG

So, this is what I ate today.

I hope, you enjoyed it. In the next post I’ll show you the recipe of my favourite smoothie. 😋

Thank you for reading!

Have a beautiful day or night! 😘

I love youuuuuuuu,

3 Days In London – Day 2

Hello, dear readers! 😁

So, here is the second post of my London trip.

Let’s start!

On Saturday, we woke up at 8AM, and went down to the restaurant, where I wasn’t taking pictures, but my breakfast was bacon (I wasn’t vegetarian back then), toast, blueberry muffin and some orange juice. It was really delicious. 😋

After breakfast we wanted to go to see some museums, so we went to the National History Museum and the Science Museum. They were really amazing, and they are free, so I recommend you to check these when you’re there.

And I found the cutest car in the whole world, which I fell in love with:

The BMW Isetta 300

DSC_1853.JPG

Try to convince me that this is not cute! 😍😍

Once in my life I’ll buy a car like this one, and I’ll go around the world with it, and I’ll be the coolest chick everywhere. 😄😁 #weirdgoals

DSC_1917.jpg

After the museums we wanted to see the Kyoto Garden in the Holland Park, and we walked a lot until we finally found it. But it totally worth it, because it was beautiful! 🤤😍

The photos were taken by my brother, and he is an amazing photographer as you can see:

So, I thought, because we didn’t really do much on Day 3, I’m gonna end this post here now, and in the next one you’ll see the end of this day and also Day 3.

I hope you enjoyed my post! ☺️

Like it if you’ve been in London before or if you’d like to go there once. 👍

Thank you for reading!

Have a nice day or night! Bye,

What made me have anxiety

Hello, my darlings! 😊

First of all, I’m sorry for not posting since about a week. I wanted to, but as a mentioned in my last post, I had exams last week, and I was a bit sick too because of the stress and just my regular anxiety that I sometimes have.

This is why I thought that I’m going to talk to you about this topic.

So, I want to tell you a couple of things that happened to me in the last about 8 years (don’t worry, it won’t be so long… just a little 😇).

First stuff, I’ll tell you about primary school, where the whole anxiety started.

In here, primary school takes 8 years. The first four years are the lower grades and then the second four years are the upper grades. After the first for years we get new teachers, and in my case, the class was separated for different groups, such as Advanced English and Regular English, and the same thing was with Literature too.

1. The Literature Chaos

Now, I have to tell you, I love Literature, I like to write poems and different stories or fanfictions, but those two years with that teacher caused me a ton of anxiety, stress and misery. I usually felt terrible, because somehow (until this day, I have no idea how) I always forgot something for that class, for example I left my book at home or I forgot to do my homework. And it was totally accidental, I didn’t mean to do those.

So, actually thinking back, it wasn’t the teacher, that made me anxious. Actually, which teacher wouldn’t be nervous when there are constantly problems with a student? No, it was the fact that somehow those problems happened, and this is where my anxiety  started.

So, for two years I had no confidence, no motivation and no goals for the rest of my life. I just wanted to get out of that place and never go back. It’s ironic, that after we went to high school, I missed it so badly, because we got together with the other Literature group, and their teacher was awesome. Seriously, the most inspiring woman (beside my mom and my sister) in my life. And then in high school (of course in last year, why not?) I got another amazing Literature teacher, who is also really inspiring and funny.

2. The P.E. Problem

So, the other thing that made me really badly anxious in a pretty young age, was P.E.

Yes, physical education.

I have to say, again, I love to do exercises at home and I love to use the stationary bike too. But since I’m really stubborn and also shy, I didn’t like to do those things that the teacher wanted me to do, for example the rope climbing and actually I wasn’t really the best in anything that has a connection with sports. I mean I can play basketball and things like that, but I like to do them with my friends or alone.

I realized a few months ago, that my real problem is that when I have to do an exercise in front of the whole class (aka the negative crowd) I start shaking and getting nervous.

This “P.E. problem” also started in primary school, and came along with me until high school’s last year. I had four P.E. teachers, and I don’t even have to say, I wasn’t a favourite for any of them. And again, after that, for the last year in high school we got a normal P.E. teacher, who was also really inspiring.

So, with those bypasses, I wanted to show you, that with the time everything gets better. You just have to think positively, and the most important thing is that you got to have faith. And also, don’t be afraid to try new things, because I was, and I thought they were huge and heavy, but some of them are actually pretty nice and easy. 😉

These are the things I wanted to mention to you today. Sorry, if it was a bit confusing, but I’m still recovering from the exam stress.

Anyways, if you’d like to tell me anything (seriously, anything), you can write a comment or an e-mail. I would really appreciate to talk with you, so if you have anything that you want to say, or if you think I can give you any advice, or you just want to talk, then go ahead. Write to me! 😉😘

Have a wonderful day or night!

And don’t forget. I love you!! ❤️💛💙💜

3 Days In London – Day 1

Hello, darlings! 😊

Today I’d like to show you what happened to me in London last year. I wanted to write this post since I started my blog and finally here is the first part of it.

I hope you’ll like it! 😉

So, we (my mom, my sister, my brother and me) went there at the 7th of October and we came back at 9th of October.

On friday (7th October) we flew with Ryanair from Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport to London Stansted Airport, from 6:30AM to about 9:00AM. It was the first time I flew and I really loved it. It was amazing to see clouds and the landscape from up there. 😍

After we arrived to the airport in London, we hopped on an airport transfer bus that took us to Victoria, and then we walked to the John Islip Street and checked in our hotel, which was the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel London – Westminster. It’s a pretty pricey hotel, but since my sister worked in one of the Hilton Hotels in Budapest, she had a discount, so it was cheaper.

As soon as we got our keycards and went up to the rooms, I fell in love. Also, at the reception we got cookies which made me love that place even more.

IMG_0818

After that delicious cookie I made a cup of coffee in the room, and then we had sandwiches for lunch, because we made them at home for the flight, but we didn’t eat all of them and we didn’t want to throw them away.

IMG_0821.JPG

Then we had a bit of a rest and relaxation before we went for a walk nearby.

We walked to the Victoria Tower Gardens, saw the Buxton Memorial Fountain and the Palace of Westminster, which had a really amazing structure to it, it was beautiful. We also saw the Big Ben and the London Eye, they were great and considerable.

IMG_0830 másolata

We walked in the St James’s Park and we saw some squirrels, they were very cute. We went through a bridge and from there we saw the London Eye. Perfect view 🤤

IMG_0878

After the walk we got some dinner. We ate sandwiches and drank some tea in the hotel, and then we took a shower and went to sleep.

I hope you enjoyed my post!

The next part will come on the next weekend, because I’ll have 4 graduation exams next week, so it depends on how tired I’ll feel. Wish me luck!

I love you so much, and thanks for reading! 😘

Have an awesome week!

Bye,

Minnie
