Essence effect nails ‒ velours powder

Živjo! :) Danes sem se počutila zelo ustvarjalno, zato sem v roke vzela Essence Nail art rdeč puder za nohte. Kupila sem ga februarja in dvakrat že uporabila. Moram priznati, da je postopek precej tečen, na koncu pa imamo celotno delovno površino prekrito s pudrom. Zagotovo obstaja lažji način, zame je ta edini, ki vseeno ne zapraši cele sobe :)

Hi! :) I was feeling very crafty today, so I decided to create with the Essence Nail art red velvet powder for nails. I’ve bought it in February and used it twice since then. I have to admit that the whole process is quite complicated and the whole working surface is covered with powder at the end. I’m sure there is an easier way, this one is the only one that doesn’t cover the whole room with powder :)

Najprej sem vse nohte namazala z Essence podlakom. Nato sem vse nohte prekrila s temno rdečim Essie lakom za nohte (shearling darling). Levi prstanec sem izpustila, ker je najbolje, da so vsi ostali nohti suhi ali pa niso namazani, da se puder ne prijema na druge nohte (razen če puder nanašamo na vse nohte). Ko so bili nohti popolnoma suhi, sem na prstanec nanesla dve debeli plasti lahka za nohte.

Puder je v posodici, ki ima na vrhu pokrovček z luknjicami. Žal puder ne pada ven, tako kot bi moral, zato sem pokrovček odstranila in puder s pinceto preložila na papir. Nato sem neposušen noht povaljala v pudru.

First, I applied the Essence base coat on all nails. Then I used a dark red Essie nail polish (shearing darling). I left out my left ring finger ‒ it’s easier to apply the powder when all the other nails are dry (unless you want to apply the powder on all of your nails). When the nails were dry, I generously applied two thick coats of the nail polish.

The powder is stored in a container and covered with a lid with holes. Unfortunately, the powder doesn’t fall out as it should, so I took off the lid and moved the powder on the paper. Then I rolled the undried nail in the powder.

Puder po nekaj urah malo spremeni strukturo in potemni. Drugače je manikura zanimiva, z veseljem bi jo imela večkrat in na vseh nohtih. Žal vzame preveč časa, vendar sem mi zdi, da je tudi na samo enem nohtu popolnoma prikupna. :)

The powder changes its structure and darkens after a few hours. The manicure is otherwise very interesting and I would love to have it more often and on all of my nails. Unfortunately, the preparation takes too long, but i think it’s nevertheless adorable on only one nail. :)

New In ‒ March haul

Zdravo! Aaa, marec je že na koncu! Sploh ne morem verjeti, kako hitro se dnevi menjajo, sploh jih ne dohajam! Zato pa sem bolj zbrana pri nakupovanju :) V tem mescu sem kupila kar nekaj stvari, izpostavila pa bom najnovejše cukrčke <3

Hi there! Whaat, it’s the end of March already! I can’t believe how quickly the days go by, I can barely keep up! On the other hand, I’m more concentrated on shopping :) I’ve bought quite many things this month, but I’m going to focus on the latest sweeties <3

– H&M sončna očala: nikoli nisem bila prepričana nad kvaliteto H&M sončnih očal. Lani sem vseeno kupila čudovita rdeča očala, ki jih redno nosim že več kot eno leto. Sicer mi živalski vzorci niso preveč všeč, vendar me tukaj ne motijo. Komaj čakam, da bo spet malo več sonca! :)

– H&M kozmetična torbica: torbici s tako lepim rožastim vzorcem se nisem mogla upreti <3 Tako je lepa, da bi jo takoj uporabljala kot manjšo ročno torbico :) Mogoče, mogoče …

– H&M sunglasses: I was never sure whether H&M glasses are of good quality. I ‘ve nevertheless bought a gorgeous pair of red sunglasses last year, and I’ve been using them regularly since then. I usually don’t like animal print, but it doesn’t bother me in this case. I can’t wait for more sunshine! :)

– H&M make-up bag: I couldn’t resist a bag with such beautiful floral details <3 It’s so beautiful, I would immediately use it as a clutch :) Maybe, maybe …

– Essence rdečilo za lica iz kolekcije Cookies & Cream (Cakepop, that’s top!) je čudovite marelične barve. Celotna kolekcija je tako prikupna, da bi takoj imela vse izdelke :) Rdečilo je zelo močno pigmentirano in malo svetleče, tako da je zelo primerno za pomlad.

– MUA rdečilo v barvi 2 pa je zelo rožnato in mat, o vtisih vas obvestim kasneje.

– Essence blush from the Cookies & Cream Collection (Cakepop, that’s top!) is  has a gorgeous apricoty shade. The whole collection is so cute, I’d love to have all products :) The blush is very pigmented and a bit shimmery, thus very suitable for spring.

– MUA blush in shade 2 is pink and matt, I’ll let you know my impressions later.

– Revlon lak za nohte v odtenku Charming je pastelno vijolične barve, podobne sivki. Ker so vsi Revlon laki na mojih nohtih najbolj obstojni, sem prepričana, da se bo tudi ta izkazal.

– Garnier balzam za lase z marelicami: do sedaj sem redno uporabljala balzame Balea, zdaj pa sem se odločila, da svojo rutino malo spremenim. Odločila sem se za Garnierjev balzam, božansko diši po marelicah. Danes sem ga že preskusila, med čakanjem, da balzam izperem, sem imela mini aromaterapijo! Lase je po uporabi resnično lažje razčesati, poleg tega pa še vedno lepo dišijo. Odličen je!

– Revlon nail polish in shade Charming is a pastel violet polish, similar to lavender. Since all Revlon polishes are great on my nails, I’m sure this one will prove the same.

– Garnier conditioner with apricot: I regularly used the Balea conditioners until now, and I decided to change my routine a little bit. I chose the Garnier conditioner with a lovely apricot-y scent. I’ve already used it today and while waiting for the last wash I had a mini aromatherapy! It was much easier to comb my hair, and besides, they have a lovely scent. It’s great!

No, pa sem skoraj vse spravila v torbico :) Lep vikend vam želim!

Well, I managed to store almost all of the products in the bag :) I wish you a lovely weekend!

Yoga Routine

Zdravo! :) Do sedaj o tem še nisem bolj podrobno pisala, zato se mi zdi, da je zdaj pravi čas, da govorimo tudi o športnih aktivnosti. Z jogo se ukvarjam že pet let in moram priznati, da začetek ni bil prav prijeten. S športom sem se ukvarjala že prej, vendar na tako intenzivno vadbo niti slučajno nisem bila pripravljena. Vse je bolelo, nobene roke in noge nisem mogla iztegniti do konca … Tako sem vaditi pričela tudi doma in napredek je bil že po nekaj tednih viden – predklon in druge asane sem naredila brez problema in šele takrat sem med jogo pričela uživati.

Hi! :) I haven’t written about this particular theme until now and I think it’s the right time to talk about sports activities. I’ve been doing yoga for five years and have to admit that the start wasn’t particularly pleasant. I’ve been doing sports before, but I wasn’t prepared for such an intense workout. Everything hurt, I couldn’t stretch my arms and legs properly etc. Then I started to do yoga at home and the progress was remarkable after a few weeks – I could do a forward bend and other asanas without any problem and that was the moment when I really started to enjoy doing yoga.

Dve pomembni stvari pri vadbi: glasba in dišeče palčke. Vse skupaj ustvari res prijeten ambient in joga je še bolj privlačna in zanimiva. V vsem tem času nisem našla boljših dišečih palčk od teh, Zimski gozd, ki sem jih našla v prodajalni L’Occitane. Žal so jih umaknili iz prodaje in jih od takrat nikjer nisem videla. (-> če jih najdete, mi prosim prinesite ene!) <3

Two important things in my yoga routine: music and incense sticks. Both together create a very pleasant atmosphere and make yoga even more interesting. I haven’t found better incense sticks than the L’Occitane’s Winter Forest. Unfortunately, they have been removed from sale and I haven’t seen them since. (-> if you find them, please bring them to me!) <3

Za prijetno vadbo potrebujemo tudi udobna oblačila. Meni ustrezajo čim bolj oprijeta, da med vadbo ne motijo. Jogo je priporočljivo izvajati na podlogi, zato da smo med asanami čim bolj stabilni in nam pod stopali ne drsi. Trak je poljuben, lahko nam pomaga pri nekaterih asanah, ki jih (še) ne moremo do konca narediti. Po vadbi je dobro piti vodo.

For a pleasant workout, we need comfortable clothing. I prefer my clothes be as fitting as possible, otherwise they tend to disturb you during workout. We should do yoga on a yoga ma– it makes us more stable and our feet don’t slip. The resistance band is optional and helps with asanas which cannot be done properly (yet). After the workout, it’s essential to drink water

Priporočam, da se vsaj na začetku jogo delate v športnem/joga centru. Učitelji joge vedno pazijo, da asane izvajamo čim bolj pravilno. Treba je tudi vedeti, da obstaja več vrst joge, meni ustreza bolj intenzivna. Če imate srečo, se vam bo med vsako vadbo na podlogo usedel maltežanček :)

I recommend to start doing yoga in a sports/yoga centre. Yoga teachers always watch out for you to perform the asanas correctly. It’s important to know that there are different types of yoga. Personally, I prefer a more intense workout. If you’re lucky, a small maltese will decide to sit on your mat during every session :)
