Best on budget drugstore highlighter?

Catrice Glow highlighter review
Honestly, nothing surprises me more than the fact that there are not many drugstore brands that offer highlighters, because right now they are the hottest product in the makeup world. I, myself, am a huge highlighter, illuminizer lover and they certainly have become a permanent part of my beauty routine, especially in summer.

off-shoulders

As the weather in the middle of the week was really treating us well and it was possible to enjoy the warm spring/almost summer warmth, in today’s weekly Ebay bargains I have collected together a few tops which represent this summer hottest trend – off shoulders. This trend was very popular a few years ago (well, actually almost ten, since the trend was popular in the 2000's – time flies doesn’t it?), but it has surely returned in full force as you can spot off shoulder type of clothing not only in stores like H&M (you have to check this, this and this blouse) and, for example, Asos (love this and this one), but also in the collections of high fashion designers. When searching for items to include in my weekly Ebay bargains, I have come to a conclusion that almost every seller, who sells clothes on Ebay, has off shoulder type of clothing in their Ebay stores . it surely feels like off shoulder trend is at it’s peak! :) And you know what? I am certainly not against it, because, for example, tastefully styled off shoulder top looks nice, summery and carefree. What do you think?

Ņemot vērā to, ka nedēļas vidū saulīte mūs lutināja un bija iespējams izbaudīt pavasarīgi vasarīgo laiku, šodien iknedēļas Ebay rakstā esmu apkopojusi šīs vasaras neapšaubāmo modes tendenci – bezlencīšu topus. Off shoulders tendence pēdējo reizi bija novērojama pirms pāris gadiem, bet šogad tā ir atgriezusies pilnā spēkā, jo šo tendenci ir iespējams novērot ne tikai tādos veikalos kā H&M (skaisti piemēri šeit, šeit un šeit) un, piemēram, arī Asos (apskati šo un šo), bet arī augstās modes dizaineru pārstāvētajās kolekcijās. Kā arī meklējot dažādas lietas, kuras iekļaut Ebay rakstos, nonācu pie secinājuma, ka gandrīz ikviens Ebay pārdevējs savā Ebay veikalā pārdod šāda stila drēbes (dažāda tipa augšiņas, kleita, kombinezons) – tāda sajūta, ka šovasar ir sākusies off shoulder tipa drēbju revolūcija :) Un ziniet, ko? Man pret to nekas nav pretī, jo gaumīgi uzvilkts šāda tipa topiņš, manuprāt, izskatās skaisti, vasarīgi un bezrūpīgi. Kā Tev liekas?

MADARA Insider Beauty box review

Madara Beauty Insider Box atsauksme
For approximetely a month I have had the MADARA Insider Beauty Box Spring/Summer 2016. I have always been intrigued by the beauty box concept in general as I love the excitment of unknown when opening the box, plus I have been a big fan of MADARA Cosmetics since the beginning, therefore, I was surely interested in trying out the new items that MADARA has prepared. I really like this brand not only because we have the same name :), but also because it is one of few beauty brands that creates products which can compete in the market globally.

Pastel Ebay bargains

Pastel colours definitely are my favorite colours of the year. I am especially fond of them in the summer time as wherever I look, I only see the beauty of what nature has created in front of our eyes. Those soft and delicate rosy shades just make my heart melt. Isn't life in spring three times more beautiful? :) I really hope you'll have a lovely weekend and that you found something useful in today's article. I personally adore those blush pink sunnies!

Pasteļkrāsas viennozīmīgi ir manas šī gada favorītes un visvairāk tās esmu iemīļojusi tieši pavasarī, jo kur vien veries, visur apkārt ir iespējams ieraudzīt skaistos dabas brīnumiņus burvīgās, maigās un rozīgās nokrāsās. Manuprāt, dzīve pavasarī ir trīs reizes skaistāka :) Lai jauka nedēļas nogale un ceru, ka šajā rakstā ieraudzīsi kaut ko sev noderīgu! Es personiski ļoti, ļoti vēlos šīs maigi rozā saulesbrilles

The collection is very stylish and there, surely, are items that I would love to have myself! :) This collection has been created in collaboration with sportswear brand 4F, which over the past few weeks you might have already read on my blog as I had the honour to be one of the brand ambassadors for this brand!

These two days in Latvia have been truly fantastic. I spent my Saturday and Sunday at my grandparent's countryside, therefore, I had the full ability to enjoy the beautiful weather and the warm rays of sun. I mean, life just seems ten times better when the weather is as pleasant as it has been lately.

Vai šīs divas nebija vienkārši burvīgas brīvdienas? Šajā nedēļas nogalē biju devusies uz laukiem Ventspils pusē un tiešām nespēju vien beigt priecāties par silto saulīti :) Dzīve liekas trīs reizes skaistāka, ja ārā valda labi laika apstākļi vai ne? :)

Lanzarote | Timanfaya National Park, Crater Caldera Blanca

Sporty style outfit
If you are ever thinking of visiting Lanzarote, then I strongly recommend going adding Caldera Blanca (Timanfaya National Park) to your must-see bucket list, because the views that we saw in the Timanfaya Park while hiking to the Caldera Blanca sleepy vulcanoe crater were truly indescribable.

Who is excited for Hockey Championship? :) I surely am as I love the adrenaline rush and excitement of watching a hockey game. Our hockey athletes might not be the ones in the world, but they are always giving everything they've got and I enjoy watching that :) Hockey most probably is one of my favorite sports to watch as we are merely good at it and I have been to quite a few hockey games and I surely love the atmosphere in the hockey hall - it is basically electrified.
Another thing I will be watching next week is going to be Eurovision Song Contest, which is kind of a silly thing to watch as it is blown out of proportion ten times, but I do enjoy it as well - love hearing new songs, seeing the shows and judging the performances with my loved ones (haha, sometimes I get really into it and make even myself laugh :D) I loved our last year's song and I surely love this year's as well. Are you going to watch Eurovision Song Contest?

Kurš no jums skatīsies šī gada hokeja čempionātu? :) Hokejs viennozīmīgi ir viens no tiem sporta veidiem, kuru skatos labprātīgi, jo man ļoti patīk tā nelielā adrenalīna deva un satraukuma sajūta, ko jūtu, kad mūsējie spēlē. Protams, nekas nelīdzinās hokeja vērošana klātienē (kādreiz kad Dinamo Rīga veicās labāk salīdzinoši bieži gāju uz viņu spēlēm), jo intensīvā spēlē zāle ir burtiski uzlādēta!
Vēl viena televīzijas pārraide, kuru nākamnedēļ skatīšos ir Eirovīzija (judge me if you want to :D), zinu, ka šis šovs uzpūsts un savā veidā smieklīgs, bet tajā pat laikā man patīk izdzirdēt jaunas (dažreiz pat kvalitatīvas :) ) dziesmas, vērot šovus kā arī novērtēt katru priekšnesumu kopā ar saviem tuvākajiem (dažreiz tik ļoti iedziļinos, ka sasmīdinu pati sevi). Man ļoti patika mūsu pagājušā gada dziesma un īstenībā patīk arī šī gada! Vai skatīsies Eirovīziju?
