I’m 24! That’s so crazy for me, I’m 24…officialy. Now I’m closer to 30 then to 16, and that’s just mind-blowing to me. Especially now all my classmates are getting married, having children, and I’m very happy for them but on the other side, it’s hard when you still don’t know what you want from life. But okay with that, let’s talk about some things I learned in the past year!ede0755338e6a4e41de86c09614db4f9_decorative-underline-clipart-clipartfest-drawing-art-_370-370

5 things I learned in the past year
  • Life will go on without you, whatever you want it or not.
  • Don’t stop learning. New language, a music instrument, painting….whatever it is, just don’t stop learning!
  • Do what makes you happy!
  • Don’t forget about skincare , you in the future will say thank you.

“Spinster Heiresses trilogy”- review

If Ever I Should Love You
(Spinster Heiresses #1)

bookAbout the book: Once upon a time there were three young ladies who, despite their fortunes, had been on the Marriage Mart a bit too long. They were known as the “Spinster Heiresses” . . . 

He’s inherited a title, but not a penny to speak of, so the Earl of Rochdale knows he must find a wife—preferably one tolerably pretty and good-tempered, but definitely wealthy, and willing to exchange her fortune for his family name.

His choice: Leonie Charnock, one of the season’s “Spinster Heiresses.” Years before, the earl had saved the dark-eyed beauty’s reputation, and she is still breathtakingly lovely, leading Rochdale to hope that their marriage will be more than in name only.

However, Leonie doesn’t want to be anyone’s wife. Nearly destroyed by the secrets in her past, Leonie agrees to their union with one condition: there will be a wedding but no bedding. But it’s a condition the new Countess Rochdale isn’t sure even she can keep . . .



The story– 3/5

Setting of the book– 3/5

Main Hero– 2/5

Smexy Times?– Some

Overall – 2,9/5 stars 

Trigger warning – alcohol abuse and rape

This wasn’t the best start of a trilogy. Like the story wasn’t the worst even enjoyable in some parts, but those “plot twists” just…why?The back story of this love story was good, but I wanted to know more about our Spinster Heiresses like you want me to believe that the best friends who are so close see each other just once a year? And don’t at least write letters to each other?! Doesn’t make sense. But on the other side, I did feel the chemistry between our main couple,that’s saved this book for me.


A Match Made in Bed
(Spinster Heiresses #2)

book 2About the book: Miss Cassandra Howell is too tall, too bookish, and too smart—but she does have money and a father who wants a grand title for her. Cassandra hasn’t felt a desire to marry until she meets the sinfully handsome Duke of Camberly, who captures her imagination . . . until Soren York, Earl of Dewsberry and her family’s sworn enemy, steps in the way.

The Holwells ruined Soren’s family, and he’s lived on the knife’s edge trying to resurrect their fortunes . . . until he considers marrying the Holwell Heiress. Not only would her dowry give him the funds he needs, he has secretly had an eye on the independent-minded bluestocking since they both first realized the differences between men and women.

She likes to read; he has no patience for books. She knows little of sex; he is a man of the world and willing to school her. Her family destroyed his; his offer of marriage may be her only salvation.

Now Cassandra and Soren must learn to love each other for who they are, not what they are—and the lessons are becoming an exercise in absolute pleasure.



The story– 4/5

Setting of the book–4/5

Main Hero– 4/5

Smexy Times?– Some

Overall – 4/5 stars

This one was good! Just ditch the first one and read this one instead. I loved Cassandra, and her voice was very prominent. The feud between our families was…weak, but that’s mine only complain. I loved it and would recommend!


The Duke That I Marry
(Spinster Heiresses #3)

book 3About the book: Is it wrong for a woman to want more?

Not if she is a Spinster Heiress. They do not settle. Any young miss would be very lucky to find herself promised to a man like the Duke of Camberly. However, Miss Willa Reverly has watched her friends marry for love. Camberly may be the prize of the season, but she will not be “sold” to any man. She wants his devotion or she wants nothing at all.

When is a Marriage of Convenience inconvenient?

Newly named to the ducal title, Matthew Addison is determined to discover the secrets behind Mayfield, the bankrupt estate he has inherited. He doesn’t have time to coddle a headstrong heiress who is determined to ditch him over something as silly as “love.” Little does he know that his questions will place her in jeopardy. Now he must do what he must to save them both.

Could it be that in running from danger they might be racing headlong into a truly unexpected fate: falling in love?



The story– 3/5

Setting of the book– 3/5

Main Hero– 3/5

Smexy Times?– Some

Overall-3/5 stars 

We are finishing our trilogy ended on an average note. It was enjoyable, but not perfect. It didn’t grab me, but was it still an okay book? Yes, it was. Loved the epilog where we got to see how are our Heiresses doing, would love to see something like 10 years in the future but I’m satisfied with what we got.

July/August Empties

It’s September! And I have finished more than one product. I have never done an empties post, but today cleaning out my bathroom I found many of my products are empty, so I thought why not to write a blog post?That’s why we are here today! Let’s talk about my trash basically!

for blog 1

1.Oblepikha Nutrition & Repair Shampoo for Weak and Damaged Hair

About the product: Delicately cleanses hair, intensively repairs damaged the structure, and protects hair from heat exposure during hot styling. Perfect for taking care of weak, dyed, highlighted, and chemically treated hair. Seals hair surface with a protective layer, creating a laminated effect; and smoothes and thickens hair, making brushing easier. Vitamins and amino-acids in the formula nourish and repair hair, while Altai sea-buckthorn oil and Moroccan argan oil help produce keratin, which gives hair shine and strength. Siberian flaxseed oil, Arctic rose, and snow cladonia help retain moisture deep in hair structure. After using this shampoo, hair becomes visibly sleek, strong and tame.

My Thoughts: Pretty good shampoo, but nothing special, didn’t make my hair fluffy(and that’s good), affordable, good quality, has a nice scent to it.

Will, I repurchase it?- No 

2.Timotei Pure Normal to Greasy Hair Shampoo 

About the product: infused with organic green tea extract. This shampoo revitalizes normal to greasy hair without using any silicones, parabens or colorants. This caring formula makes your hair feel fresh, clean and beautiful – a pure reflection of a more natural you. New Timotei Pure is perfect for hair that’s prone to greasiness. Known for its revitalizing properties, green tea helps leave hair fresh, light and looking beautiful. Discover our new eco-friendly refills for pure shampoo which contain 67 % less plastic than our 400 ml pure shampoo bottles. Organic green tea contains polyphenols, which are known throughout the beauty world for their natural antioxidant properties. 0% Parabens – At Timotei we strive to make our products as natural as possible, so we’ve stopped using parabens. Parabens are a chemical, commonly used in shampoos to help preserve the other ingredients. At Timotei you’ll find that our whole product range is now paraben-free. 0% silicones and colorants – We’ve also removed any silicones or colorants to make timotei pure, well, even more pure. All wrapped up in eco-friendly bottles that use less plastic and are fully recyclable.

My Thoughts: I loved this shampoo! I got it in Ukraine(you sadly can’t get it in Latvia), as part of a gift set (still have the conditioner to try). This shampoo is amazing if you can definitely try it, even if you don’t have grease hair. I found that it works for almost any hair type, makes hair feel smooth, clean, and easy to manage. Didn’t strip my hair color, and that’s great!

Will, I repurchase it?- YES!!!!

3.Avon Senses Citrus Zing Shower Gel

About the product :

  • Zingy grapefruit-scented conditioning wash.
  • Leaves skin feeling shower-fresh and moisturized.

It brightens the skin tone while visibly improving the evenness of skin texture and reducing the look of blemishes. It is a multi-functional support ingredient for all skin types and also acts as an effective antioxidant. This formula offers a very high 10% concentration of high-purity Azelaic Acid in a lightweight cream-gel system.

My Thoughts: I liked it! More then I thought I would, my skin texture got better, and my acne wasn’t as bad.There is no oil in this formula and that’s amazing (Oily skin problems) It was just around 7 euros.

My Thoughts: Thi is one of my favorite face masks ever! It’s affordable, helps with acne, discoloration. The only downside is when you put it on,it’s burns a little.

Will, I repurchase it?- YES!!!

8.Belkosmex TEEBAUM face cream with tea tree oil

“W – Two Worlds”-The Kdrama that kept me awake

About the Drama :

thumbnailThe series focuses on the eponymous fictional webtoon entitled W, written and illustrated by its legendary author and illustrator Oh Seong-moo (Kim Eui-sung). W became famous in entire South Korea that even its version in print became a bestseller in the country.The storyline of the webtoon W starts with the younger years of its main character Kang Chul (Lee Jong-suk), a handsome and intelligent boy who is also skilled in shooting. He becomes famous in South Korea as he won a shooting competition during the 2004 Athens Olympics. But this fame gets ruined when his entire family was killed by an unknown Murderer, and he gets falsely accused of the crime. Another villain Han Cheol-ho (Park Won-sang) handles the case to gain political popularity, pronouncing in court to impose death penalty upon Kang Chul. Nevertheless, Kang Chul was deemed innocent of the crime. Depressed over losing his family, he attempts to commit suicide over the Han River but he stops himself and chooses to move on with his life. Ten years later, Kang Chul becomes a multimillionaire. cc0ec463da8c13568bd80e5e09f07a2e7146b00f_hqHe starts his “Project W” in his continuous efforts to catch the real culprit behind his family’s death; part of the project is his television broadcasting company dubbed “W,” after the initials of the interrogatives “who” and “why” (hence, the title of the webtoon). One night, he receives a suspicious phone call and gets severely injured by the same mysterious Murderer at the rooftop of his penthouse.

No. of episodes‎: ‎16 + 2 special episodes
Original release‎: ‎July 20 –; September 14, 2016
Original language(s)‎: ‎Korean


BrokenBlindAsiandamselfly-max-1mbIt was so fresh and unexpected! I loved the idea of webtoon coming to life(and they executed it perfectly), and Lee Jong-suk(who played Kang Chul)  was the perfect casting choice to play a cartoon character. Every episode had a lot of action, very unusual(in my opinion)to this kind of KDrama.I loved seeing the same scenes we just saw in “real life” ,to then seeing them in the webtoon,it was such a nice touch.  I liked it!


51e5796b920f2beb0a285f3f58d1485f9a659bf0_hqOur main couple Oh Yeon-Joo(played by Han Hyo-Joo) who is the daughter of the author of the webtoon “W”, and our main hero of the webtoon Kang Chul(played by Lee Jong-suk). The chemistry was there! Was it over the roof? No, but it was still there and that’s important!


*Mild spoilers*

5BXfKhWI expected much sadder Ending then we got, that shocked me(don’t know really why). For me the ending was satisfying, I really liked the last episode. To be very honest it felt a little rushed, but still good.
