Affordable magnetic eye shadow palettes | Friday Ebay bargains #173

I had never thought of searching for a magnetic eye shadow (or face makeup) palette on eBay! But while I was browsing products to include in an upcoming eBay post featuring makeup organizers, I found one magnetic palette. I decided to dig a little deeper and found a 'Pandora box' 😍 because as it turns out there are quite a lot of them on eBay and for really affordable prices - I decided to create a separate blog post with a few that I found.
Who needs an empty eye shadow palette you might ask? Well, it is the perfect way to store your individual eye shadows from brands like Makeup Geek, Morphe Brushes, ColourPop and many more. I, myself, am using a Z Palette, but considering the fact that you can buy a magnetic palette on eBay for half a less price I will seriously consider ordering one from there.

Nekad iepriekš nebiju iedomājusies meklēt tukšās magnētiskās acu ēnu (vai sejas kosmētikas) paletes eBay'ā! Nejaušām uzdūros vienai, kad gatavoju eBay rakstu par dažādiem kosmētikas uzglabāšanas rīkiem un nolēmu papētīt dziļāk. Un atradu 'Pandoras lādi' 😍, jo eBay'ā var atrast ļoti daudz un dažādas magnētiskās paletes - dažas no tām apkopoju šodienas rakstā.
Kam nepieciešamas tukšas acu ēnu paletes? Tās visbiežāk lieto, lai uzglabātu individuālās acu ēnas, piemēram, no tādiem kosmētikas zīmoliem kā Makeup Geek, Morphe Brushes, ColourPop un citiem. Pati izmantoju Z Paleti, bet ņemot vērā, ka eBay'ā var atrast alternatīvas par divas, trīs reizes zemākām cenām, iespējams nākamo pasūtīšu tur.

Ir neizsakāmi liels prieks par padarīto un par gala rezultātu, tāpēc, lūdzu, noskaties video, nospied 'like' podziņu un noteikti atstāj komentāru, ļai ļautu man uzzināt vai Tev patika video! 😊

Fall colour makeup look

Fall makeup look
I must admit that getting back to my daily routine since my vacation in Rhodes island has been really challenging, because job just always find a way to pile up. So to say - for the past two weeks I've been trying to hop on a train that has already left the station. Mainly I am speaking about my 9 to 5 job and my freelance job which takes around 80% of my free time in the evening. So in the middle of all of this, last week our Canadian relatives came to visit us and we sure wanted to spend as much time with them as possible since we really wanted to create a good impression of Latvia and to get to know them as much as possible since it was the first time meeting them in real life.  Our foreign relatives kind of reopened my eyes about my home - Latvia. They were amazed by our culture, architecture, nature and our rich yet painful history. There are so many beautiful things in my country that I forget to appreciate as political, economical situation just take over the positive and beautiful matters of our country. So because of their visit I kind of got to experience Latvia from a foreigner view point, which for sure was refreshing!
Another thing that has captured my attention for the past week was creating my wanderlust video from Rhodes island. Just before the trip we decided to buy a GoPro camera and in the last few days I've been trying to create a visually enjoyable video from all gazillion clips we created. It for sure is a time consuming task since this is my first real time working with Adobe Premiere as I wanted the video to be as beautiful as possible - coordinate it with the song, colour grade (the colours from GoPro videos are usually quite dull) and understand how to create nice transitions from one clip to another. I hope that soon I will able to show you what I've been working on! 😊

But meanwhile, in today's article you'll be able to see a makeup look that for sure was inspired by fall and it's gorgeous colours. I will only add that on my eyes I used the Morphe X Jaclyn Hill eye shadow palette (still available at Beauty Bay, click the link!) which has become very near and dear to me. I will try to create a more detailed article regarding the palette soon! 😊

Atzīšos, ka atgriešanās ierastajā dzīves ritmā kopš atvaļinājuma Rodas salā noteikti ir bijis izaicinājums, jo  darbi kā vienmēr atrod veidu kā skriet pa priekšu un pēdējās divas nedēļas ir bijusi sajūta, ka centies ielekt vilcienā, kas jau sen kā atgājis no stacijas. Šis gan visvairāk attiecas uz pamatdarbu, gan arī uz freelance darbu, kam veltu aptuveni 80% no savu vakaru brīvā laika. Pa vidu tam visam, pagājušo nedēļ uzņēmām ciemiņus no Kanādas, kuriem noteikti vēlējāmies veltīt maksimāli visu brīvo laiku, lai radītu pēc iespējas labāku iespaidu par Latviju, kā arī, lai satuvinātos ar radiniekiem, kurus ieraudzījām pirmo reizi dzīvē. Par Kanādiešu vizīti piebildīšu vien to, ka viņi pavisam noteikti palīdzēja man ieraudzīt lietas citā, sen aizmirstā gaismā - viņi bija sajūsmā gan par mūsu kultūru, par mūsu skaudro vēsturi, arhitektūru un dabu. Ir tik daudzas lietas, kurām ikdienā vispār nepievēršam uzmanību un ļaujam dažādiem politiskiem un ekonomiskiem apstākļiem valstī tik ļoti nomākt mūsu valsts skaistumu, ka vairs nespējam novērtēt zemi, kurā dzīvojam.
Vēl viena lieta pie kuras strādāju pēdējās dienās ir Rodas salas video izveide. Pirms ceļojuma nopirkām GoPro kameru un šajās pēdējās dienās cenšos no visa safilmētā materiāla izveidot stāstu video formātā, kurā būtu redzams kā mums gāja, ko redzējām, ko ēdām un dzērām 😀 Tas noteikti ir ļoti laikietilpīgs process, jo vēl tikai pavisam pamazām sāku apgūt Premiere programmu, izveidot ar dziesmu saskaņotu kompozīciju, regulēt krāsas (jo ar GoPro izveidotie video ir salīdzinoši blāvi) un saprast kā no viena kadra pāriet otrā ar vizuāli baudāmu pāreju. Ceru, ka jau tuvākajā laikā varēšu arī jums atrādīt savu gara darbu 😊

Bet tikmēr, šodienas rakstā variet apskatīt grima tēlu, kuru viennozīmīgi ir iedvesmojis rudens un rudens dabas krāsas. Piebildīšu to, ka uz acīm esmu izmantojusi Morphe X Jaclyn Hill acu ēnu paleti (vēl joprojām pieejama Beauty Bay, skat. linku!) un, ka detalizētāku rakstu par pašu paleti cerams arī izveidošu tuvākajā laikā 😊

The first proper fall look

Call me Maddie
Finally the first real outfit fall outfit post of the year is up on the blog! 🎉 Fall undeniably has settled in and you can not only feel that in the cold crisp air, but also in the nature - especially in the golden red trees and bushes. So with that being said I declare the fall outfit series open! 😀 I am wearing one of my all time favorite coats - a camel colour coat from New Look (alternative here), a more than five years old blouse, but it's still very near and dear to my heart and I've had countless outfit posts with it. I am also wearing new additions to my wardrobe - faux suede button down skirt (I couldn't find the link, but it is available in the stores) and ankle boots (I scored them in summer sales!), both from H&M. And, of course, I couldn't not mention my newest and favorite accessory - the Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Ashfield watch. I am completely smitten by the elegant band and the rose gold details - I think it is sooo perfect for fall! 
If you'd like to buy you Daniel Wellinton watch, use the discount code "CALLME15" and you'll receive a 15% discount for your whole purchase. The code is valid till the end of the year.

Nu ko, pirmais īsti rudenīgais tērps ir publicēts blogā! 🎉 Rudens neapšaubāmi ir atnācis, un to var just ne tikai vēsajā gaisā, bet arī visapkārt dabā - it sevišķi zeltaini sārtajos kokos un krūmos. Likumsakarīgi arī blogā aizsāku rudenīgo outfitu sēriju! Mugurā man ir mans visiemīļotākais rudens kamieļkrāsas mētelis no New Look (alternatīva šeit), jau vairāk nekā 5 gadus veca blūze no Zara (bet vēl joprojām ļoti, ļoti mīļa - man ir bijuši neskaitāmi tērpa ieraksti ar to! Jauninājumi manā garderobē - mākslīgās zamšādas svārki no H&M (linku nevarēju atrast, bet ir jau pieejami veikalos), potīšu augstuma zābaki arī no H&M (nopirku vasaras atlaidēs) un mans šī brīža visstilīgākais aksesuārs - Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Ashfield pulkstenis. Daniel Wellington pulksteņi kā jau jūs to zināt ir mani absolūtie favorīti un šis, protams, nav izņēmums. Elegantā siksniņa un rozā zelta detaļas ir ideāli piemērotas šim rudenim.
