recent haul (pt. 2)

good day!
I finally found time to share second part of my recent haul. Third is actually on the way as well, I manage to buy new stuff while making this post. Okay, no more rambling, let's go to the haul.

1
classic jacket // h&m

Ever since I've graduated (that post is also coming up soon) I started to go to job interviews and of course have to look more serious (my job would be business type, so no boyfriend jeans and oversized sweaters, boohoo). So found this perfect black jacket, which is not too serious, but serious enough. And love the fabric!

2
sweater // vero moda

But me wouldn't be me if I didn't buy any new oversized sweaters...well this was love at first sign! And also I don't have much of white clothes anyway, so why not.

3
sweatshirt // newyorker

And also, there would never be too much sweatshirts. I love this one, color, fabric, everything!

4
pajamas set // takko

Once again, never too much pajamas. This one is long sleeved top and leggings type bottoms, perfect for winter time.

5
natur boutique body lotion // rimi
batiste dry shampoo // eurokos

I was still in search of perfect body lotion for my spoiled skin and tried this organic body lotion. It smells nice, but I didn't feel much change in my skin. Recommend for everyday use, but don't expect any miracles.
After trying Batiste dry shampoo and felling in love, I decided to try one from another range...and got disappointed. It smelled nice, but didn't do much work, just as all the other dry shampoos. I'll buy original one next time.

6
rival de loop goji-melone micellar water // drogas
garnier micellar cleansing water // drogas
nivea bb cream // drogas
nip + fab kale fix clay mask // asos.com

I'm that kind of person who tries many products and well, gets disappointed while realizing I just should stick to the one I loved before. And this goes for micellar waters. Rival de Loop one is good, smells nice, but you can't use it for your eyes, so it's like double work - remove eye make up w one remover and then clean face with another one...ain't nobody got time for that. While Garnier one is my all time favorite and soon I'll mention it in my all time favorites, stay tuned!
If you know me - I don't use any foundation or powder, I stick to bb creams. Buut, thing is I can't find good one. After loving Nivea face cream so bad, I though bb cream from it should be good aswell, well, mm, not sure. Color is too dark and there was no options for that. I'm keeping it for some other days, but now I'm just sticking with my bare face.
And just once again learning that Nip + fab cosmetics have something which is not compatible with my skin. I liked clay masks before and though this one would be great too, but once I tried it I had terrible break outs and now I'm afraid to use it again. Maybe it wasn't this fault, but just coincidence I had break outs when I was using Nip + fab cleaning pads and cleanser (I mentioned it here).

Aaand that's it for the second part. I'll try to make third (and last) part for next week, so if you're interested, stay tuned!
I hope you're having a lovely day :) x

goodbye, summer!

hey hey there
[little disclaimer: This post (as always) should have came week ago, but I was extremely busy, sorry for that.]
Just like last year and year before last year (whoa) I decided to make summer summary (whoa whoa). This summer probably was one of the most excited for me and I'm so sad it ended so soon. 

Fashion♥
My favorite new trends were off shoulder tops and dresses. The only bad thing I don't have any of it! Fingers crossed it will still be a trend next summer and I promise, I'll rock it!

My least favorite new trend was denim skirts. I don't know why, I used to wear (and love) it when I was a kid, maybe I just feel too old idk. But it's a huge no for me, it just doesn't look right for me.

Beauty♥
Beauty trend. Nude lip. Maybe because of Kylie J, but honestly, I love this trend! Too bad nature - light brown lip looks terrible on me, I change it to natural pinky tone nude, simple and for all seasons.

My favorite nail colors were matte pink/ neutral. I have no idea why, but I just stopped liking bright nails. Summer used to be bright pink/orange nails season for me, but this summer I decided to rock nudes - matte or shiny pinks, browns and greys.

Hairstyles. Dutch braids. Well, once again the Kardashians. But sorry not sorry, dutch braids were def my favorite trend of all. Too bad it's not easily made and my arms start to hurt really fast. 
Untitled #176

Lifestyle♥
My favorite new artist (more likely newly found) was Major Lazer. Probably. It's really hard for me to talk about music, because I just liked everything. No major likes or extreme loves.
My favorite song/album. Jonas Blue "Perfect Strangers", Drake "Too Good" and "One Dance", Bring me the Horizon "Follow you". And many others, too many.
My favorite new discovery. Mr. Robot. I was seeing pics on tumblr of this guy and I just wanted to know who he is. I found him in tags, it was new tv show and I decided, why not. I'm watching only two shows right now, so decided to give a try and I honestly fell in love! I'm in season two now and made a pause, just because I was too busy, but next week I'll probably finish all episodes.
Untitled #177

My favorite memory. It's too hard to choose one. Or talk about all of them. This summer was definitely one of the greatest so far, graduation, Spain, Lithuanian seaside trip with my friends, little trips, everything...just amazing summer. 
My least favorite memory. Hard to find one. Of course there were bad things, but this time I'll only think about good ones. :)

Things I'm looking forward next summer ♥ 
Today I decided for one thing - Mykonos. I don't know about anything else, but visiting Mykonos is on my list for summer' 17, and hopefully this one will come true!

hello autumn

happy september!
It's so weird to see all the kids with flowers in streets and not to be one, omg, so nostalgic. I honestly miss school, even though I'm sure if I have to go there again I'd be so mad and sad, but let's remember good times, like spending time with friends, chatting and laughing during lessons and getting good grades.Well, instead of that I'm trying to get my life back together after long holidays and of course getting more things to do. This weekend I had to go to my friend's kind of bachelorette party, but today I got work task for the weekend, also have one interior project on saturday, so I'll have to pass it :/ Well maybe being busy will make my mind turn off of bad things, let's look at the bright side.
Down below I'm sharing one of my favorite outfits, not really autumny because of lack of burgundy and dark green, but you can never go bad with black and white, right?
I'm hoping you're having a good evening and see you in the next post! x

june memories

1 
One of the best jelly candy you can find - natural and tasty, recommended! // Catching up w my bff, sushies and cocktails as always (ps i have been craving sushi so badly, these photos are not helping ahh)

2 
Little weekend getaway with my boyfriend to Trakai // Berries for dinner, oh well

3 
Working out w my grandma's bike // Outfit for cold evening walk - leggings, comfy sweater, leather jacket, big scarf and converse shoes

4 
Attending Muse concert, it was amazing! // Bea Johnson's lecture about zero waste life, it was interesting and worth waking at 9 am at Sunday after sleepless night before

5 
My graduation ceremony. I'm actually will write big post about it, stay tuned // Trying self tanners, didn't see much different with light one, soon will try dark one, even though I still have some tan on myself 

6 
My favorite cocktails in bottle - vodka + watermelon and blue lagoon // Weekend kayaking. It was event for midsummer and me and my boyfriend decided to go there as well. Regardless of terrible migraine attack and sleeping for a day in tent just because of it, it was great weekend and I loved kayaking (tried it for the first time). Reminder for myself if in future I decide to do this again - don't drink unknown guy's wine. After that one I felt terribly drunk (literally couldn't think straight) and got terrible migraine, headache with nausea, ahh can't even think about it, awful awful memories.  

7 
This is view in Balbieri┼íkio atodanga which we visited while going home from kayaking weekend. If you're visiting Lithuania I recommend to visit it! // Returning home after kayaking weekend and finding out I have huge bruise on my arm. Have no clue how I got it, it didn't hurt and I don't remember hitting my arm. I still have scars on my feet after I slipped on rocks in the river, maybe I got this at the same time hmm 

8 
Traveling to Barcelona. One of highlights of summer I'm going to share in separate post :)

9 
Breakfast in our hotel - fruit, croissants, yogurt, apple juice and coffee // Wandering in streets of Barcelona

10
Drinking sangria in Barcelona and finally finding out how it should actually taste. I tried to make the same one after coming home, definitely not the same, but close. // Trying spanish pizza, not bad!

recent haul (pt. 1)

oh hello there
This post is actually so old, I was still living in Vilnius. But I still wanted to post this, just because of those little reviews about bought things some people might find useful :)

1 
sweater // vero moda

Light, sheer sweater for cool days. It was bargain and material is lovely, so I like it a lot.

2 
crop top // new yorker

I have been loving crop tops, just too insecure to wear one, buut, once I tried this one, I just couldn't leave it like this. Perfect with high wasted jeans and it doesn't even show my fat belly haha

3 
skirt // vero moda

Perfect dark green skirt for spring and summer. I think I will wear this a lot during autumn time as well.

4 
all types of socks // h&m, gifted

I think you will never have enough of big fluffy socks. And christmas one of course!

5 
nivea rescue & care body lotion // drogas
eucerin repair hand cream // pharmacy

After having terrible allergies, I started to use creams for dry skin and honestly found that they work the best for me. I'm going to write another post about this Nivea lotion, so not going to share more, but definitely going to recommend this for everyone. While Eucerin cream didn't work much for my dry and cracked hands, even though it was really recommended and expensive.

6
melisa hair serum spray // rimi
batiste original dry shampoo // eurokos
john frieda luxurious volume shampoo // rimi

I decided to take more care of my hair and bought this hair serum spray, which should make your hair stronger and growing faster. Not sure if it did that, but it was cheap, smells nice and makes my hair little bit less static. 
After using tons of dry shampoos and regretting all of them, I finally found one which actually worked for me. Too bad I used it all in a month or so, but definitely would recommend!
First product, I have read so many good reviews, didn't work for me. It should have add more volume and also make your hair less oily, well, none of that happened. Totally waste of money.

7 
r de l young eyebrow powder // drogas
maybelline lash sensational mascara // eurokos

Here's another product, which has been such a huuuge recommendation from vlogers/bloggers all around the world and once I started using it I used to think for myself "did maybelline paid them or what", because my lashes used to be one big lash, wet, black, with mascara all around my eyelid. I think I needed one or two months when it started to work better. I won't buy this one again, even if it did work after some time, but it's just not worth waiting, while we have so many mascaras which starts working right with first layer.
While eyebrow powder is my favorite one so far, I will talk more about it in one of my upcoming posts :)

8

Here's better view of it, two colors and a small brush, easy to apply and long lasting, definitely recommending this one.

9 
maybelline super stay 3d gel effect plumping top coat // drogas
golden rose express dry nail lacquer (color 46) // drogas
golden rose rich color nail lacquer (color 31) // drogas

There's not much I can say about nail polishes this time, that top coat is actually working good for me, making nail polish last longer and that golden rose nail polish (color 46) is heaaaven. Once I bought it I realized I want lipstick color like this....

10 
rimmel the only 1 lipstick (color 700 naughty nude) // drogas
lumene natural code candy smile gloss stick (color 4 juicy popsicle) // prisma
l'oreal infallible mega gloss (color 407 smoke me up (matte)) // maxima

...and I found it. This rimmel one is the same color like polish, even though on lips it looks little bit more pinkish. But, it stays long, smells nice, what else do you need :) Lumene one is easy to apply, even though I'm not so sure color fits me well, it might be little bit too bright. I just wanted it so badly I couldn't keep myself haha. And this l'oreal one is a little bit messy with stains on my teeth.

lenovo e31 laptop // pigu.lt

Aaaand here's something I have been hiding and enjoying. At the end of february I bought myself new laptop, much lighter and much better. Been loving it so much! 

So here's the first part of my recent buys, there will be one or two more soon!
I hope you're having a good day, see you soon :)
