What I bought on Ebay | Friday Ebay bargains #153

What I bought on Ebay
As I promised in my last blog post and since it has been quite a while since I've shared the items I, myself, have bought on Ebay, I decided that today would be a perfect day to share with you some of the items I've bought on Ebay in the last month and a half. I really hope you will find this article useful and that you will spot something you would like to have for yourself.

LV
Kā jau solīju pagājušās nedēļas bloga ierakstā un ir pagājis jau krietni ilgs laiks kopš pēdējo reizi blogā rakstīju par lietām, kuras esmu iegādājusies Ebay’ā, šodienas rakstā apkopošu dažādus sīkumus, kurus esmu iegādājusies pēdējā pusotra mēneša laikā. Cerams, ka raksts būs noderīgs un, iespējams, atradīsi arī kādu sev tīkamu lietu.

Phone cases for Samsung Galaxy S7
Phone cases - cacti design and pastel design ($ 2.22)

I already introduced you to some phones cases that can be found on Ebay in this article and with pleasure I can say that these ones are really good for their value! I personally love the cacti design phone case the most and it's on my phone non stop. But for some reason whenever I want to charge my phone the charger keeps on slipping out. So I have to take off the phone case and then charge my phone which I find slightly annoying. Though I have not witnessed such problems with the other phone case. Both cases are made out of elastic plastic which means that they are easy to put on and they fit the phone perfectly.

Ar telefonu vāciņiem, kas pieejami Ebay’ā iepazīstināju šajā rakstā un ar gandarījumu varu teikt, ka vāciņi savai cenu kategorijai ir lieliski! Man personiski vislabāk patīk telefona vāciņš ar kaktusa dizainu un to pašlaik nēsāju nepārtraukti. Bet nezināmu iemeslu pēc man visu laiku, kad lādēju telefonu, krīt ārā lādētāja gals. Otram vāciņam šāda problēma nav. Līdz ar to, ja lietoju kaktusu apdrukas vāciņu pirms telefona lādēšanas, tas ir jānoņem. Abi vāciņi ir izgatavoti no elastīga plastmasveidīga materiāla un tos ir viegli uzlikt un tie ļoti labi pieguļ telefonam.

Choker necklace from Ebay review
Choker necklaces - Long velvet cord ( and Pink velvet with a heart ($ 1.29)

If you haven't been living under the rock you'll know that the choker style necklaces are experiencing a huge comeback. I, personally, get very nostalgic when I think of them since they were a part of my childhood in the 90's. I bought two different necklaces - one with long strings that can be tied around your neck and one made out of pink velvet. I really like the one with the long strings as I think the colour is just perfect for spring and summer outfits. I can't say that I like the velvet one since I think it looks cheap, it's not well made and it's too long for my neck even when closed on the first loop.

Neapšaubāmi tagad modē ir cieši pieguļošās “choker” stila kaklarotas, kas noteikti mūsu paaudzei ļauj iegrimt patīkamās 90 gadu atmiņās, kad gandrīz katrai meitenei bija šāda stila kaklarota. Ebay’ā pasūtīju divas kaklarotas – sasienamu kaklarotu ar garām lentītēm un samta kaklarotu rozā krāsā. Kaklarota ar sasienamajām lencītēm, manuprāt, ir forša un man patīk tās gaiši brūnā krāsa, jo lieliski piestāvēs vasaras tērpiem. Savukārt samta kaklarota gan man neiet pie sirds, jo, manuprāt, izskatās lēti un tā manam kaklam ir par lielu pat tad, ja to uzlieku uz ciešāko režīmu.

Selfie ring light Ebay review

I have included this item quite a few times in my Ebay posts, therefore, I wanted to finally buy it for myself and test it out to see whether it's worth it. I think that this selfie light is a really cool gadget to have, but, for sure, it's not the must have list. The selfie light has three settings - you can choose how bright you want the light to be. Below you'll see a set of pictures in which the first one is without the selfie light and the three rest of them are with a different lighting setting. All pictures were taken with the front camera. I think that you can clearly see the difference and I will for sure continue using it. Probably I will use it most often in parties which usually happen during the evening or night when the natural lighting is quite poor.

Šo lietu savos Ebay rakstos esmu iekļāvusi salīdzinoši bieži un tieši tāpēc nolēmu to iegādāties arī pati. Manuprāt šīs selfiju gaisma ir foršs gadžets, bet varbūt ne gluži pirmās nepieciešamības prece. Tai ir trīs gaismas spilgtuma režīmi, kas ļauj Tev noteikt savas “ideālās gaismas” līmeni. Augstāk vari redzēt arī bildes, kurās testēju šo gadžetu tumšā apgaismojumā ar priekšējo telefona kameru (pirmā bilde ir bez šīs apaļās gaismas, pārējās trīs ar dažādiem spilgtuma līmeņiem). Manuprāt, atšķirība ir labi pamanāma un šo ierīci noteikti lietošu arī turpmāk. Manuprāt, visvairāk to lietošu mūsu meiteņu vakaros, kad ir pienācis “maģiskais selfiju laiks” 😊

Kate Spade watch dupe Ebay

I love, love, love the saying "Eat cake for breakfast" in the dial, I think it's super cute! 😊 Right off the bat you can see that this watch is a dupe for the Kate Spade watch. Since it can be found on Ebay, the price is wayyy lower than for the Kate Spade watch, but I must say that the quality is like that as well. I mean, the watch for the price can be considered fairly qualitative, but I really did not like the fact that the it was already working when I received it (usually watches have a small clasp around the button that prevents it from ticking). Did you notice that the "6" is actually a "9"? What a fail! 😃 If you want a dupe for the Kate Spade watch, do buy this one, but if you want something more qualitative I would suggest for you to pass on this one.

Visvairāk mani uzrunāja tieši uzraksts ciparnīcā “Eat cake for breakfast”, jo tik kičīgi izklausās 😊 Pulkstenis neapšaubāmi ir ļoti vizuāli līdzīgs slavenajiem Kate Spade pulksteņiem, bet, protams, tā kā nopērkams Ebay’ā, tad par daudz reiz mazāku cenu un pieņemu, ka arī kvalitāti. Pulkstenis priekš savas cenas ir mēreni kvalitātīvs, bet nedomāju, ka tas kalpos ilgu laiku it sevišķi tāpēc, ka tas jau strādāja atnākšanas brīdī (parasti pulksteņiem ap podziņu apliek tādi kā aizliktni, kas novērš to strādāšanu). Un vai ievērojāt ka "6", bet ir "9"? 😄 Ja vēlies Kate Spade pulksteņa līdzinieku, tad iegādājies šo pulksteni, bet, ja vēlies kaut ko kvalitatīvāku, tad es ieteiktu atturēties.

Tiffany T line bracelets dupe Ebay
Tiffany T line bracelets dupe Ebay

Another item that is visually very similar to a luxury brand itemis the double T bracelet. If you haven't figured it out by the looks, then these bracelets can definitely be considered as dupes for the Tiffany T line bracelets which, I personally, adore. Since the price was ridiculously friendly, I am not complaining about the quality as I found it even better than I expected!

Vēl viens pirkums, kas vizuāli atgādina kādu no dārgo zīmolu produktiem ir šīs rokassprādzes. Ja vēl neuzminēji tad šīs rokassprādzes ir vizuāli ļoti līdzīgas Tiffany T līnijas rokassprādzēm. Tā kā cena bija ļoti draudzīga, tad nesūdzos arī par kvalitāti. Manuprāt, tā bija labāka nekā es to sagaidīju.

The brown trench coat

Latvian fashion blogger
As spring still has not exactly reached Latvia, my outerwear wardrobe still  mainly consists of coats and warm jackets. So keeping that in mind (I know that most of Europe is enjoying quite a lovely and warm spring time), today I wanted to share with you an outfit post in which I am wearing one of the latest additions to my outerwear wardrobe - a brown trench coat style coat from Gamiss. Of course, it's not like I am lacking of brown midi length coats as I already have two similar ones - check my outfit posts here and here, but I really liked the style of this coat as it reminds me of a nice trench coat, but in a more thicker and warmer version.
Another relatively new item in my wardrobe is this pineapple print t-shirt. This for sure is one of my latest favorite bargains I've lately found on Ebay because, firstly, the price is ridiculously friendly - only 4.99 USD, secondly, because I love anything with a pineapple print on it and, thirdly, because this has been one of the most worn items in my wardrobe for the last few weeks. I'll only add that not only the price is great, but so is the quality! T-shirt has a soft fabric and the print has not faded, cracked or anything during the past few weeks of hardcore wearing 😊 Recommend!

Tā kā pavasaris ir nedaudz iekavējies, tad manā garderobē vēl joprojām pārākumā ir mēteļi un siltas pavasara jakas. Šodienas rakstā vēlos parādīt vienu no jauninājumiem manā vēso pavasara dienu mēteļu garderobē - brūnu putekļmēteļa stila mēteli no internetveikala Gamiss. Protams, nav tā, ka manā garderobē šādas krāsas mēteļu trūktu, jo man jau ir divi līdzīgi brūnas krāsas mēteļi - vari aplūkot tērpus šeit un šeit, bet man ļoti iepatikās šī mēteļa stils, jo tas atgādina trenci (putekļmēteli), bet biezākā un siltākā veidā. 
Vēl viena relatīvi jauna lieta ir šis t-krekls ar ananāsu apdruku. Šis viennozīmīgi ir viens no maniem mīļākajiem pirkumiem Ebay'ā, jo, pirmkārt, cena 4.99 USD ir super draudzīga, otrkārt, tāpēc ka man ļoti patīk pilnīgi jebkas kam ir virsū ananāsu apdruka un, treškārt, tāpēc ka pēdējo trīs nedēļu laikā šis viennozīmīgi ir bijis viens no maniem valkātākajiem t-krekliem. Piebildīšu vien to, ka ne tikai cena ir ļoti laba, bet arī kvalitāte, jo t-kreklam ir mīksts un taustei patīkams audums kā arī apdruka ir kvalitatīva un šo nedēļu valkāšanas periodā vēl nav manāms nolietojums. Iesaku!

Spring clothes | Friday Ebay bargains #152

Spring Ebay clothes
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 //  9 // 10 // 11 // 12 // 

Even though spring has not yet started in Latvia, in today’s Ebay bargains post I have collected together some clothing items that I believe will be a perfect fit for spring. So I really hope spring will hurry up and I’ll be able to finally start wearing my spring wardrobe! Hopefully you found something useful in today’s article or you might have gained inspiration for your spring outfits.
I am sorry for not publishing an Ebay bargains post last week, but you know, even bloggers need some time to relax and enjoy the long weekend holidays 😊 Next week I’ve planned on publishing an article with items I bought over the last 1.5 months on Ebay. So be sure to visit my blog on next Friday as well 😊

Kaut arī pavasaris mūsu platuma grādos kā nesākas, tā nesākas, bloga Ebay rakstā esmu apkopojusi dažādus apģērba gabalus, kas, manuprāt, ir lieliski piemēroti pavasarim. Bet, protams, ka tie būs piemēroti daudz siltākiem laika apstākļiem nekā tādiem kādi pašlaik pie mums valda 😊 Ceru, ka rakstā atradīsi ar kaut ko sev noderīgu vai vismaz gūsi iedvesmu kādam no saviem pavasara tērpiem.
Atvainojos, ka pagājušonedēļ izlaidu Ebay rakstu, bet arī blogeriem ir šad tad jāizbauda īstās brīvdienas 😊 Nākamnedēļ esmu paredzējusi publicēt rakstu, kurā apkopoju pēdējā pusotra mēneša laikā pirktās lietas Ebay’ā, tā kā noteikti iegriezies manā blogā arī nākampiektdien! 😊


Pink with a yellow twist

Pink spring makeup
Again I was very inspired by the rosy tones in my hair, therefore, in today's makeup look the pinks dominate again! This is a very fresh and youthful makeup look, therefore, I believe, perfect for spring. Even though, pink is the shade that dominates the most, I also wanted to add a little pop of colour or a little twist you might say and added yellow eye shadow on my lower lash line which I think adds the perfect amount of chic for this makeup look. 
I really hope you had fantastic Easter holidays and I hope you had enough time to relax and get ready for the working week! 😊

Iedvesmojoties no pavasarīgi rozā vēsmām manos matos, arī šodienas grimā dominēs maigie un sievišķīgie rozā toņi. Manuprāt, šis grims ir ļoti viegls un gaisīgs, tādējādi ideāli piemērots pavasarim. Kaut arī lielākā daļa no sejas ir ieturēta jau manis pieminētajos rozā toņos, nolēmu pavisam nedaudz paspēlēties ar krāsām un apakšējo plakstiņu līniju iekrāsoju viegli dzeltenā nokrāsā, kas, manuprāt, grimam piešķir koķetu pavērsienu. 
Ceru, ka Tavas Lieldienu brīvdienas ir izdevušās un, ka izdevās gan izšūpoties, gan izkauties ar olām, gan arī, protams, atpūsties! Izturību un spēku jaunajā darba nedēļā! 😊

Smart spring style

Call me Maddie
Spring is just meant for flowers! Maybe you have already spotted my little flower addiction in my Instagram feed, because, truly, almost every second picture is with flowers 😊 So with that being said, I thought that the most ideal location for my outfit's photo shoot would be in front of little flowers shops in city center. As I styled my outfit in dark colours, I wanted the background to enlighten it and make it a tiny bit more colourful. I am wearing my new blazer from H&M that I've been wearing nonstop lately. Over the weekend I spotted the blazer at H&M on sale for only 25 euros (from 49.99 euros) which I think is a good deal for a classic black blazer as it's quite universal and can be styled in so many different ways. In order to loosen up a bit the outfit, I chose to wear a white t-shirt which had such a cheeky chic print on it! I truly hope you'll enjoy today's article and that you maybe even caught a glimpse of spring inspiration! 🌸

Pavasarim noteikti piestāv ziedi un, iespējams, jau manā Instagram profilā būsi pamanījis/usi cik man tie ļoti patīk, jo man jau liekas, ka katra otrā bilde ir ar ziediem 😊 Līdz ar to, manuprāt, ideālā lokācijas vieta priekš šī tērpa mini foto sesijas, bija iepretim ziedu veikaliņiem blakus Vērmanes dārzam. Tā kā mans tērps ir ieturēts tumšākās nokrāsās, tad vēlējos, lai fonā esošie ziedi to nedaudz atdzīvina un piedod fotogrāfijām krāsas. Man mugurā ir jauna žakete no H&M, kura pēdējās pāris dienas nēsāju nepārtraukti, jo šo žaketi pagājušajās brīvdienās uz atlaidēm nopirku vien par 25 eiro (sāktonējā cena bija 49.99 eiro), kas, manuprāt, bija lielisks darījums, ņemot vērā cik universāla un klasiska melna žakete var būt. Lai tērps nebūtu pavisam stīvs, to nedaudz atdzīvināju ar baltu t-krekliņu, kam ir kičīga apdruka. Ceru, ka Tev patiks šodienas ieraksts un, ka tas Tevi kaut vai nedaudz pavasarīgi iedvesmoja! 🌸
