Wednesday Reviews #12 L’Oréal Skin Expert Pure Clay Masks

At times you need a little me-moment and for me those moments are best spend pampering myself. So I try to plan a little me moment every week in which I treat myself with a good thorough facial cleanse and finish with a facial mask. Now L’Oréal launched their Skin Expert Pure Clay Masks a while back and at first I was a bit sceptical. The way they advertise the products is that each of the three types has their own function and that it is best to use all three in different areas. The reason why I was sceptical had to do with the price. Luckily I found them on sale online a while back and I decided, why not?

A Quick and Easy Make-up Look

I have posted a lot already about make-up and the products which I use and love. So today I want to share with you an easy and quick look that I created for this blog. I follow a lot of talented beauty bloggers and vloggers on Instagram and what not and while I will probably never be able to create the masterpieces they make I still think that easy make-up looks should not be overlooked.

Taming the Beasts

I believe that every experience in your life shapes you as a person. While there were not many things that I knew for sure as a child. Two things I do remember, is that I have always been a little diva. I demanded to have those Disney plastic slippers every girl had however, due to my taller than average nature they never actually fit. The other thing is that I have always had bushy eyebrows. They were nice and thick but as insecurities became part of my everyday life my sister convinced me to let her pluck them… They have never been the same.

Wednesday Reviews #11 Miracle Worker

It has been a while since I last posted a Wednesday Reviews but after using this product for a while I could not stand to not share it. I would not say that my skin is dry or oily. However, not that the temperatures have dropped and the wind can be icy cold, I do like to give it some extra treatment. This is why today’s post is dedicated to L’Oréal Extraordinary Oil.

Happy 2017!

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve! I sure did (something about shamelessly introducing myself to a gold medal winning Olympian, don’t ask). While today has been mostly about doing nothing and just enjoying Harry Potter movies with my roommates, I have been thinking about what I want 2017 for me to be about. 



Last year I came to the realisation that most of my life and choices revolved around seeking approval of my surroundings. With every step and turn I would worry about what others would think. Right around August I realised that this was no way to live, not for me. We are so focused on constantly pleasing the world around us that we tend to forget ourselves. Now I am by no means advising people to behave selfishly but I would like to encourage you to question yourself if you giving yourself enough credit. 

So for me 2017 is going to be about me. About working on my self-image, about challenging myself, about making sure that I am doing everything I can. You may be one of those people who think it is rubbish to have New Years resolutions. However, I believe that having such clear line may actually help people with their set goals. So do not think they are silly, your resolutions. Just do not be too hard on yourself. In the end you are going to be the one who will always be there with you. 

Besides, I’m just glad that 2016 is over. While it has not extremely bad for me personally, it did have a bad vibe. 2016 was one of my least favourite years which is why I’m okay with it being in the past. Finally, I just wish you all a happy new year full of love, happiness and great opportunities. 

Love,

Nica
