Let’s start with the home screen. My wallpaper is the beautiful(yes, I call boys beautiful)Park Bo Gum( I love him, he is an amazing actor ). How you can see I don’t have lots of apps on here,  just the basic ones like a Calculator or Settings.

The next “page” is full of apps, I use the most Instagram,  Youtube and of course WordPress(it’s an amazing tool for bloggers on WordPress). Gmail is another must have for me, it’s an easy and fast way to check all my work emails.

Screenshot_20190224-140257The last “page” of apps. My favorite photo app is Snow ,you can make amazing pictures and gif’s with it. Right now I use PocketBook app for my ebooks(I change my ebook readers a lot , and have tried quite a lot of them.If you are interested in a recommendation post , comment it down below ), another great app for reading is Amazon Kindle(you can find many “free” books on there ). Aliexpress is my go-to online shop. I love it(my recent aliexpress haul )

The Love of Stones

by Tobias Hill

Raiting on goodreads-3.54

Burrowing through the goldsmiths’ quarters and hidden archives of London, Tokyo, and Istanbul, Katharine Sterne is on the trail of a ruby, diamond, and pearl brooch once worn by Queen Elizabeth I. Interwoven with the tale of her hunt is that of a pair of Iraqi Jewish brothers who traveled to London two hundred years earlier with fortunes made from an unearthed jar of priceless stones. Spanning two continents and six centuries, Tobias Hill’s The Love of Stones follows three very different people, each consumed by the same desire-possession of the legendary jewel-which binds their stories together in an irresistible quest.

Frederica

by Georgette Heyer

Raiting on goodreads-4.16

Rich and handsome, darling of the ton, the hope of ambitious mothers and despair of his sisters, the Marquis of Alverstoke at seven-and-thirty sees no reason to put himself out for anyone. Until a distant connection, ignorant of his selfishness, applies to him for help. When Frederica Merriville brings her three younger siblings to London determined to secure a brilliant marriage for her beautiful sister, Charis, she seeks out their distant cousin the Marquis of Alverstoke. Lovely, competent, and refreshingly straightforward, Frederica makes such a strong impression that to his own amazement, the Marquis agrees to help launch them all into society. Lord Alverstoke can’t resist wanting to help her Normally wary of his family, which includes two overbearing sisters and innumerable favor-seekers, Lord Alverstoke does his best to keep his distance.

Clothes/Accessories

Sinsay I Love my Earphones -Boy Bye

Aren’t those fun? I loved the design, and colors on the website were so vibrant.I am not disappointed with those and they were just 2 euros ! I did get them for just aesthetic reasons, but they do work amazingly and the sound is better then I expected.

1bbb9fe6738eb824c203907fa230db3933921055_hqHello my darlings and Welcome if you are new here. Sorry I was not as active here like I was before. To be honest think I just burned out,  between Blogmas and consistent blog posts in January… I didn’t take time to recharge and get inspired to write. But now  I’m back with a review. On the 11.11 I ordered some cute winter boots from Aliexpress . I got them in a brown color

Packaging and Shipping

3/5 stars

It came in a simple bag without any bubble wrap or “protection”. I don’t know how those boots came in pristine condition(mind-blowing). But a big plus was the shipping, it was fast(like 2 weeks ).

Design

5/5 stars

This is the main reason I got those boots. It reminds me of the Gyaru style(2010 Anna would love anything Gyaru ) that’s why I got them right away. I got them in a brown color. I like how they look on and they are warm (and very soft inside). I love how you can tie them up in a bow, it’s such a cute look. The only thing, it a little bit tight on me(needed to get a bigger size)

 

Overall

4/5 stars

The quality, for the money, is amazing. I’m very happy with it. I like how the heal is solid and on the ice, you will not slip( I tried, so you wouldn’t have to). I’m happy with the purchase, would recommend.

Tell me in the comments, Are you over winter and ready for spring?

Love oh love…..”The Love Tag”

Photo by Mandy von Stahl on Unsplash

20190106_142911_500Good Day My Darlings! How are you all today? It’s 14 February, the Valentines day. As a single girl, Valentine’s day can be a little bit depressive . Seeing all those happy couples everywhere can be hard, And Today it’s my parent’s wedding anniversary(even though they are divorced it’s still a date we remember and “celebrate” in a way because without it there would be no me or my brother). Because I don’t have any big plans today I decided to do a tag…a love one. Let’s dive into it!

Questions:

1. Do you believe in love at first sight?

Yes and no. Don’t think I would ever fell in love at a first sight (I’m not that kind of person). But it could happen to someone else, I do believe that it happens very rear and most people mix up lust and love quite a lot.

2. What is your favorite love quote?

“I would love you in any shape, in any world, with any past. Never doubt that “-Claudia Gray, A Thousand Pieces of You

giphy

3. Should we look for love, wait for love, or forget about love till it happens?

I think you should do what feels right for you. There is no right or wrong way when it comes to love.

4. Does age matter in love?

If both parts are consensual adults then no.

5. How do you not get jaded by love?

I don’t know….for reals.

6. Describe what love is to you.

Love for me is people who care about me and I care about them.

7. Have you ever been in love?

Yup,I have…but just once .

tenor (1)

8. What’s the difference between being in love with someone and having a crush?

For me, it’s the way I view a person. If it’s just a crush I’m looking more at the outside (Like manners and looks), but when I’m in love I’m more interested in what’s inside.

9. What is your love language?

Words of Affirmation and Receiving Gifts(and this is the way I show my love, by giving gifts  )

10. Do looks matter in love?

You can’t control who you love . That’s what I believe.

Photo by Kira auf der Heide on Unsplash

Hello, my Darlings! It’s good to be back!I’m sorry I was away for some time, sadly the virus season got me too and I was sick for like a week with a stomach bug. But now I’m back, feeling better. How was your January? Can you Imagine the first month of 2019 ended?! Where does time go? My January was …uneventful. I was sick almost the whole month and the only thing I could do is read. Still, I have some favorites, so let’s dive into it!

Beauty Favorites

giphy (10)Maxwell Smart, a.k.a. Agent 86, works for CONTROL, a Washington, D.C.-based counterintelligence agency. Totally inept as a secret agent, Smart can barely use the gadgetry the agency provides him (including a phone embedded in his shoe). Nevertheless, he and his fellow agents always seem to thwart the operations of KAOS, an organized crime outfit dedicated to evil. Agent 99 is Smart’s smarter partner, a resourceful agent who eventually marries her bumbling cohort. Smart and Agent 99’s boss is a man known only as The Chief.

 

Favorite Book

The best way to describe this book is Gossip Girl meets Pride and Prejudice. This one was amazing!

Romancing Mister Bridgerton
(Bridgertons #4)
by Julia Quinn

Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend’s brother for… well, it feels like forever. After half a lifetime of watching Colin Bridgerton from afar, she thinks she knows everything about him, until she stumbles across his deepest secret… and fears she doesn’t know him at all.

Colin Bridgerton is tired of being thought nothing but an empty-headed charmer, tired of everyone’s preoccupation with the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can’t seem to publish an edition without mentioning him in the first paragraph.

But when Colin returns to London from a trip aboard, he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same, especially Penelope Featherington, the girl haunting his dreams!

And when he discovers that Penelope has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decide… is she his biggest threat, or his promise of a happy ending?

I read Fallen and I loved it!

giphy (9)Hello, My darlings!I’m sick…again. And what do you do when you are sick in bed ? You read. So that’s what I did. Finally, am starting to read my physical TBR pile (yay for that!). Let’s start with the fun part!

About the book:

Fallen by Lauren Kate 

6487308What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?

17-year-old Lucinda falls in love with a gorgeous, intelligent boy, Daniel, at her new school, the grim, foreboding Sword & Cross . . . only to find out that Daniel is a fallen angel, and that they have spent lifetimes finding and losing one another as good & evil forces plot to keep them apart.

Get ready to fall . . .

My thoughts:

First of all, I read this in Latvian so the writing and names are slightly changed, keep that in mind. I got this book a few years ago, found it in my local book outlet store called Zvaigzne ABC outlet(if you are in Latvia, Riga definitely check it out, they have books in English too). Almost all books in Latvian are in library bind(if that’s how it calls when the hardcover books don’t have a dust jacket but the cover art is on the actual book). But this one was different, it had the dust jacket and I wanted it(have never seen books like that in the wild). And Finally I read it and I loved it! There are very mixed feelings about this book, but I genuinely liked it. The writing style was amazing, it was so atmospheric, the world building was phenomenal. I could imagine and “see” it clearly …plus I’m a sucker for past lives love story. Overall I enjoyed this one, would recommend.

“It just didn’t work” Beauty edition

download20190104114820

Hello, my Darlings! How are you all doing? How’s the weather? We had such snow storms for days now. It’s so beautiful outside, but at the same time, it’s cold like -15 C cold. Today I want to talk about beauty products that just didn’t work for me. Right now I just have 3 of those, I hate wasting products, so I try to repurpose them or give to my mom(She has dry skin, so everything that doesn’t work for me, usually works for her). Let’s dive into it.

KODAK Digital Still Camera
My “didn’t work” pile
Himalaya Refreshing and Clarifying Toner

KODAK Digital Still Camera
About the product:

Himalaya Herbals Gentle Refreshing Toner is an alcohol-free toner which helps reduce oil secretion and keeps skin oil free. Himalaya Herbals Gentle Refreshing Toner removes impurities and makes the pores appear smaller, revitalizes and rejuvenates the skin. Makes the skin look healthy and radiant. It does not leave the skin dry and stretchy. It is enriched with all natural ingredients which control the secretion of oil in the skin making it look fresh and oil-free.

  • Alcohol-free product.
  • Reduces oil secretion.
  • Removes impurities and dirt.

Why it didn’t work:

My face feels sticky after using it. Simple as that. It does say there are no oils or alcohol, but my face feels dirty and I don’t like the smell of it. I’m reusing it like a makeup remover.

Day Tox Pell of Mask

KODAK Digital Still Camera
About the product:

Black is the new Must-have. The pitch-black active charcoal mask provides an intensive deep cleansing. It absorbs excess sebum and with regular use combats the formation of blackheads. The result is a more revitalized and radiant skin as well as a refined complexion.
Why it didn’t work:

It did absolutely nothing. Like I’m not even joking. My face feels and looks the same after use and it’s a pain to take it off. Wouldn’t recommend.

LASH SENSATIONAL


About the product:

Did you know your lashes grow more than just one layer? This mascara unfolds layer upon layer of lashes for a new full-fan effect.
Why it didn’t work:

It made my eyelashes look like spider legs. It clumped up and you can’t put more than 2 layers on. I really think it’s not as much of mascaras fault, but more the way my eyelashes are (thin and short). I will try it again in the future, but right now I’m very disappointed.

Tell me in the comments, How you tried those products before?

That’s it form me
