Full makeup look only with liquid shimmer

What did I do when I found out I forgot my makeup bag and I only have a liquid shimmer with which I can put on makeup?
The results are in front of you. what do you think? Did I succeed in the task?

As you can see in the pictures, I applied shimmer on the eyelids, on the cheekbones, on the tip of the nose and a little bit on the lips.

most fun shopping from ‘Stradivarius’

I had today a super fun shopping from Stradivarius. I have an obsession with planners, stickers and basically anything related to it and I am in love with a delicate pink color combined with gold or rose gold and the purchase I made today is a celebration of everything I mentioned, a super fun and girly purchase.

The first thing I purchased is a cool pink planner with inscription in Rose Gold. The diary that has a soft leather binding, is without dates and fits for 12 months if I’m not wrong. Each month there is a monthly layout and before each weekly layout there is a page where you can centralize all the plans you have for the coming week.

Not far from the planners was a stand with small wallets and handbags and in this stand I found the next transparent wallet or pencil case. Perfectly fits the diary I just chose.

Then I thought to myself what would complete this purchase, and then I saw this perfect pink bag with a silver chain strap, OMG! PERFECT! This shopping seems like a perfect gift set.

What do you think about the shopping I did? Is it a successful purchase?

Almost forgot to mention, the whole purchase was 132 nis only! That’s 39 $.

Things that make me feel better

Hello everyone, hope everyone feels good and spend those confusing days of quarantine with as much positive vibe as possible.

Personally, for the last few days I have been in no good mood, this quarantine and the lack of knowing what tomorrow will bring it’s a little disturbing to me. So to lift my mood a little bit I started with a healthy new habit of making smoothies to myself. As I have written before, I have anemia and i need a lot of iron so i have found the healthiest smootie to have that have a lot of iron and vitamins, highly recommended! Here’s the recipe for green smootie:

One cup of spinach leaves, one cup of kale leaves, 2 stalks of carp, cucumber and half a squeezed lemon. Your body will thank you. It looks like this:

My kids were not so into the green smoothie look, so I pampered them with a sweet and luxurious fruit shake with watermelon with ice and apples with pears.

Last Friday, for me to cheer up a bit and to delight the kids, we went for a walk around the house and collected colorful flowers. The kids were very excited about the activity and learned about flowers and insects, I got a little cheer and finally we got ourselfs a stunning bouquet of flowers that adorned the dining table.

Today I decided I was tired of the hair loss I have and because I have some baldness in my hair, I decided it was time to do something to nourish the hair and encourage re-growth of hair so I applied on the scalp and on the hair itself coconut oil.

I just split the hair into 4 parts and massaged my scalp with coconut oil, I intend to wait with the oil on the hair until the night when I will wash the hair. Promises to update with the results. I wonder if I will see any changes in my hair and how long I will wait untill i will see them. We’ll wait and see.

I saved the best for the last, see what arrived yesterday !! Write me down if you want to see what I got …

This is it for this time, hope you enjoyed, see you in my next post!

I applied a gel nail polish to myself

Hi there, not much is going on these days. I concentrate mainly on arranging and cleaning the house and on the regular things in my daily rutin.
The other day I went to my manicurist to get my nails done. The reason I did nail building is because I have very weak nails that always breaks. I really like long nails and I have never been able to extend them because they are so very weak until I decided to do nail building. I personally in love with the ‘ballerina’ nails, rounded and almost pointed nails, they are so girly. So, This time I decided to apply a milky white gel nail polish, it is a color that I will certainly not get tired of in a few days.

My pedicure I am doing to myself mainly because I can’t stand the idea of someone touching my feet, it’s a kind of disorder that started because I really don’t like my feet and I think they’re very much ugly. Everyone and their luck.

I have a three-layer nail polish that I bought about two years ago from an Israeli cosmetic company. It is a three step gel: the base, the color (there is a great variety of colors) and the topcoat. This is an excellent gel that lasts about three weeks.

This morning I decided to renew my nail polish and choosed two colors, one for the background and the darker one for decoration.
For this task, I was equipped with a led lamp to dry the nail polish and a toothpick for decoration.
I decided that I should apply as a base color the pinkish polish and I decided that with the dark color I would draw points with a sharp toothpick on one of the nails.

How It Works?

First of all, I made myself a plate with coarsely cut fruits and touches of whipped cream, not recommended for those on a diet.

So, back to business: First of all, I applied the base step on all the nails and dried for a minute with the led lamp. then i applied the nude color and then dotted the nail with the darker nail polish with a toothpick and dried a minute with the led lamp.

Then at the last stage I applied the topcoat and again dried with the led lamp. And that’s it!

what do you think about the result? (Sorry for showing my unpleasant feet’s)

Write down in the comments what you thought about the result.

This is it for this time! See you in my next post.

Homemade pickles, brunch and wall rugs

My posts, starting today, will look a little different from recent posts. I realized that there is no need for to plan the content in advance, everyday life brings with it enough moments of inspiration and ideas that anyone can be inepired by and embrace them for themselves. So from today I will post posts in them I will share with you my daily life and the things I experience, the things that makes me happy and in general I will try to bring you guys interesting content, unplanned content that comes in motion authentically and flowing. Welcome to join me.

Yesterday, which was Tuesday, I started making a pickle jar with the vegetables I love: cauliflower, carrots and Kohlrabi. The vegetables are not ready yet, I will give them another day, and of course I have no idea how they came out (this is my first time) but I do not believe that such a simple task can fail.

how to make? I separated the cauliflower into relatively small flowers, cut the carrots into thin slices as much as possible and the Kohlrabicut into sticks, the vegetables I poured into the jar (I put the vegetables in the order that i cut them but I would recommend you to mix the vegetables before adding them to the jar so you don’t have to dig to the depths of the jar to get some greenery) I poured three glasses of water, one glass of vinegar, two tablespoons of salt, a little drops of lemon juice and a quarter cup of oil. I flipped the bottle several times to mix the ingredients and that’s it, two or three days and it’s ready. I love to eat pickles next to the meals and also as a snack alongside the wine or vodka redball (yes I know) that I usually drink on Friday nights, promising to keep you updated on how they came out when they will be ready.

I spent the rest of the day with my two boys (4 and 5 years old) and the 2-year-old baby that I was home with because of the corona virus but in the first second when I had a little time to myself, which happens when the baby falls asleep around 12 o’clock, I decided to pamper myself with a small snack.

I made two Fried Eggs, which I placed on two slices of bread smeared with pesto, and of course, I made myself a hot cup of coffee. While eating I watched Lydia Elise Millen’s YouTube channel, I love watching her content recently. Her YouTube channel, at least recently, revolves around home designing and this is because she recently bought her dream home that she still designs, fashion and beauty. Some may say that she presents a picture that is too perfect and even artificial, but for me, watching her content fills me with positive energy, the content inspires me, motivates me, and most of all, I love watching people that are happy and feeling good about themselfs, we have the opposite infront of us all day long. I encourage you to watch her channel if this content interest you.

Today was a super exciting and joyous day for me, today finally, after two months when the kids were with me at home because of the corona virus, they all went to kindergartens! Yas! Freedom!!! Those two months that they were with me at home were challenging, exhausting, funny, upsetting, those days were a squeezing emotions machine. It was difficult for the children allso as well, because in the end the life they known was taken from them. In addition to the quarantine, a person very close to me who I love passed away and another family member was hospitalized (thank goodness he is now in a good shape and healthy) For moments it felt like a movie, everything ran too fast and the extraordinary and extreme plot added to the feeling that it was some fictional plot and that we would wake up any second from the dream . it was not a dream, but it seemed like the beginning of its end, the children retorned to kindergarten and I started to breath again. This morning, after putting the kids in kindergarten, I decided to visit my sister and my mom, who lives with her, and sit down for a cup of coffee and a morning chat. The three of us sat in the balcony facing the sea and introduced me to the new crafts they created. In a previous post I mentioned the fact that my mom knits everything, including covers for decorative pillows, so get this three new pillow covers she knitted:

amazing or not?! In addition to my mother, my sister also has creative hands and head, she has also started to create insanely cool wall rugs

She uses a special weaving facility and special tools to create this stunning rug. The fabric she made has all kinds of different elements, for example, at the top of the fabric there are pom-poms and down the fabric there are wires that come off it. After talking to my sister, I realized that this is a very easy job to sink into and lose a sense of time so if you decide to try it, take it into account.

my sister purchased the facility and accessorise from amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/WILLOWDALE-Multi-Craft-Extra-Large-Develops-Creativity/dp/B07ZH96DXS

My sister also didn’t send me home empty-handed, and gived me three t-shirts

two of them she bought from the online store ‘NEXT’, the shirts are white with with inflated sleeves, the other shirt she bought from ‘MANGO’ but was small on her. So thanks to my sister for the presents and for the kindness. In general, I have to replenish my wardrobe with summer clothes, if you have offers for online sites that offer beautiful, high-quality clothing and that ships around the world wrote to me in response here.
And this is it for this time. follow my site and posts if you like.
See you in the next post! Bye Bye 🙂

My mom’s handmade necklaces

Well, I’m really excited about the new gift I received from my talented mother. The fact that she always had golden hands I always knew, but her amazing hand made products surprises me every time. This time, my mother brought me some amazing beaded necklaces, they arrived just in time for the approaching summer, i will just throw on some T-shirt with jeans or a skirt and the necklaces would pop up my outfit.

My mom has been knitting for many years, from shirts, dresses to blankets and pillowcases and this time she did something different and decided to diversify a bit and move into the jewelry world, she combined knitting with beads to achieve the result that comes before you. She made the necklaces using knitting needle and craft threads in diferent colores, some here are gold, silver, bronze and black.

If you have the time and the desire, it is completely something you can do at home, the network is full of demo videos, there are a variety of options and techniques, you just have to choose the technique that is right for you and do it at home comfortably. There are craft shops that sell beads and all the accessories you will need, you just have to do it, if you want.

Online shop for example:

https://www.the-beadshop.co.uk/beads-and-beading-supplies-c491

This gift really excited me and I can no longer wait for a chance to decorate myself with them, a little light hit and you will not be able to ignore me 😉
Which necklace do you like the most? isn’t she talented ?!

Flavored water – tasty and healthy

I do not drink enough water and it charges a price, I am weak, not essential and my skin complexion is pale and unflattering.

I thought a lot about ways to make myself drink more water and to put the artificial juices aside and realized that I just had to add a drop of color and flavor effortlessly from ingredients I already had in the fridge.

Here are 4 recipes for water flavors that I particularly love:

1. Cucumber water:

Ingredients: half cucumber, half lemon, mint and rosemary.

2. Apple water:

Ingredients: half red apple, half green apple and mint.

3. Strawberry water and red grapefruit:

Ingredients: 3 large strawberries, half a lemon and a quarter red grapefruit.

4. Berries water:

Ingredients: Any berries you have in the fridge (there is also a frozen mixture) and half a lemon.

Add mineral water and enjoy!

Inspiration board – December 2019

Tradition continues and this time I sat down to prepare my monthly inspiration board with new aspirations for the next month and different energies from the last one.

I invite you to take a look at my previous blog where I detail how I create my monthly inspiration board.

This time I want to dwell a little bit on what stands behind my pictures choices.

My aspiration for the coming month is to empower myself, to love myself and to take care of myself because there is no one who know how to do it better then I do.

I hope I will be full of creativity and a desire to develop myself even if it seems difficult at times.

Wishing you all a wonderful month!

Knitting for beginners

Although I do not have a lot of spare time for knitting but every now and then when I reach my dear mother I receive from her a clothing item that she knitted with her own hands.

The items she knits for me and for the family are stunningly beautiful and very warm, also because it is made by her own hands.

I always loved to look at my mother while she was knitting, the peace and the quietness that stood out in her face made me smile. There is a lot of magic in doing this, the path to the result brings a lot of inner peace that we sometimes lack in daily life.

Do you also want to get started?
Here are two of beginner knitting sites where you will find guides that will help you through the process.
Enjoy!

Inspiration board

Every month, at the beginning of the month, I sit next to my desktop with a large stock of magazines and newspapers and begins to plan my monthly inspiration board.


the inspiration board for me is a visual plaque that inspires me , fills me with motivation and pushes me to fulfill my goals for this month. I’m placing my inspiration board on the page that opens the month in my private planner.


So how do we do it?
– All we need is magazines and newspapers, scissors and paper glue.
Let’s get started! Check the newspapers and magazines until a picture or phrase catches your attention and than cut them and put them aside. Keep it up until you feel you have enough stuff for your inspiration board.


Now we’ve reached the fun part! Play with the photos you’ve chosen, and just like puzzle parts, place the photos until you feel you’ve reached the result that pleases you.


All that’s left is to glue the pieces to the board and that’s it! You have an inspirational board! So easy and still so important!
