Hallo Spring

leather jacket: AOLONG fashion | top: Bershka | jeans: TALLY WEiJL | ankle boots: ESMARA | bag: AVON | glasses: KWIAT | earrings: Aleks & VV | bracelets: Carolina Winter Design (black), Aleks & VV (red), GIL (white)
Oh, how I like Spring! Everything is waking up, flowers everywhere, it's sunny and bright colors, of course. For me it's really nice to wake up knowing that outside is sunny and I don't have to wear my winter clothes. I'm able to wear cardigans, leather jacket and blazers.

Anyway, on the outfit...or first on my haircut. Yes, lets talk about my haircut. Last Saturday I went to my hairdresser with the idea for a different shape of my hair. We ended up with this, because my hair was already too short and decided to skip 3 months at least until my next visit. I'm thinking about a lob or something like that. When I was sitting on the chair my heart was beating fast and I was like 'It's gonna be alright. Summer is coming, you don't have to worry about your hair. You can curl it, too.' I like it.

On the outfit. These jeans, ankle boots and handbag is part of my spring uniform lately. I love to make combos of bright and dark clothes. These jeans makes my dark tops, outerwear to look a lot better - especially the top I'm wearing here. It's in my favorite color, it's light and makes great combo with my leather jacket. For jewelry I picked my daily once - the black one is made by me. Soon I'm launching Carolina Winter Design - brand for jewelry. I'm almost ready, so stay tuned for more info. The earrings and the red bracelet I've got for my birthday and the white one I bought for Christmas.

The Acne Treatment Diary #4

It's this time of my life when I have to talk about my acne treatment. I truly hate this moment! A couple of days I went to see my dermatologist (it's been 1 year since my last visit), because I started to have acne on my forehead, too. Before this moment I had only on my jaw and chin. If you read my last three posts of my acne treatment diary you know what I'm talking about.
After my visit I'm again on antibiotic and my old routine with little updated. The antibiotic is the same - Azax 500ml. I'll be taking it now for 8 weeks now, 1 tablet, 3 days of week. She doubled the weeks, because I'm having a little bit bigger pores and my blackheads are more visible that ever. I've started to take the tablets since day 1 and on day 2 I saw the quick effect - my skin now is more calm and I hope for more calmness.

The other things I have to use are the dietary supplement LaktoFlor Bio Plus, Davercin gel and the clay mask. There's no difference here - LaktoFlor Bio Plus I'll be taking three times a day, Davercin gel-two times a day and the clay mask - two times a week. These three I'm using since last year without a break, because they are holding the situation under control.

The second update in my routine will be the BIODERMA Sebium Gel moussant. I've never tried this product before, but since I'm using it I feel the difference between this gel and the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Foaming Gel. It's more liquid, with blue color and the smell is like you are washing your face with fresh air.

After this whole routine we're going to do a facial peel and again I'll pay a visit to a gynecologist.

Garnier Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water vs. Nivea 3 in 1 Caring Micellar Water

As you know I like to test products and recently I've finished the testing trial of Garnier Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water. I had terrible problem with my mascara, because it's waterproof. I'm not fan of waterproof mascaras. I needed this change, so I decided to show you today the advantages and disadvantages of these two micellar waters.

Garnier Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water | I'm using mainly medical cosmetic, because of my acne skin and the only product from Garnier I'm using is their shampoos. I decided to try it, because of the other blogger posts, so far I'm really pleased with this water and luckily I can't find disadvantages. It's in bigger package - 400ml, I need only to count to 10 and my waterproof makeup is gone and my skin feels refreshed after the long day.

Nivea 3 in 1 Caring Micellar Water | I'm using it for years now and I didn't have problem with this water. It's easy to remove my makeup (only the makeup that is not waterproof) and my skin is feeling fine. The bottle contains 200ml micellar water and the price is good, not too expensive. The disadvantage here is that I no long can find the water from this range that fits for my skin.

How I Clean My Makeup Brushes

Washing your brushes is so important, am I right? I recently started to use my brushes more often duo to the sunny weather outside. I love when everything around me is clean and this also applies for my brushes. Using my brushes more often = they get dirty quickly, so I clean them not every week, but every two or three weeks. Depends on how dirty they are.

When I'm cleaning my brushes I using warm water, not too hot and paraben-free shampoo or shower gel. I'm trying to use paraben-free product, so I'm using them in the routine with my brushes. Anyway... the first step is to pour a tablespoon of the shampoo/shower gel in the small bowl and then I'm adding warm water. One at the time I'm dipping my brushes and swirling them across the bottom on the bowl.

Step two is to let them soak for 5-10 seconds, depends on how dirty they are. After this one by one I'm holding each of them under cold water and for step three I'm drying and remolding them by pressing the hairs between a napkin until they get their old shape.

What's your cleaning formula for your brushes?

My 23th Birthday Presents

A couple of days ago on 28 February I turned 23. I feel more wiser and more like a grown up, but the child in me is still there dreaming of more adventures and having the dream job of a fashion/ jewelry designer. Anyway this year I've got lots of presents from my family and almost everything was in my birthday wishlist.

First present was my new pair of glasses form my mom. My old frames are distorted and now I'm using them only at home. The new frames are again from KWIAT - KWIAT EXCLUSIVE. This year cat eyes are a trend among eyewear and I really like how they can be styled with both casual, formal or work wear outfits. These frames are 50% metallic with brown shades (my favorite shades) and are my final touch when I wear some of my brown or black clothes.

Next is a golden jewelry Aleks & VV set from my father, grandmother and late grandfather. The set came with this red box and include earnings with zircon gemstones and bracelet with red textile cord and a padlock charm. Also on the one side of the padlock there's a tiny heart. I wear mostly silver, but according to my granny this year is for golden jewelry, so I'm getting used to with wearing gold.

Finally is the present from my mom's husband. He gave me the limited edition of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I can't say much of the book for now, because I'm reading it for the first time and I'm not finished it, yet. I'm glad that I have time to read it, because it's this kind of book that is really good written. I think that there's a strong conclusion in the end that valid for these days, too. If you read the book tell me what you think of it.
