Mate tēja no Mindvit /  Mate tea from the brand Mindvit(Unboxing)

Hello, My Darlings! I hope you all are doing great. This is something I’m doing for the first time, This post wIll be in two languages(Latvian and English). So, I was lucky enough to be sent a very cool tea called Mate from Mindvit.lv company. Let’s dive into the unboxing and my thought about the tea!

Sveiki visiem!Ceru šajā drēgnajā laikā jums iet lieliski. Kautko tādu es daru pirmo reizi,šis ir oficiāli mans pirmais posts latviešu(un protams angļu)valodā.Tātad Man palaimējās un Mindvit.lv atsūtīja man vienu no saviem Mate tējas komplektiem.Tā kā ķersimies klāt paciņas atvēršanai.

Atverot mēs ieraugam lielu tējas paku(370 g),speciālu salmiņu dzeršanai un koka glāsi. Jaātzīst ka biju ļoti patīkami pārsteigta cik maz plastika bija iepakojumā,vienmēr priecē redzēt kompāniju kas domā par apkārtējo vidi.

When we open the package you can see a big pack of loose tea, special drinking straw, and a wooden cup. To be honest, I was surprised how little plastic was in the packaging, it’s always nice to see a company that thinks about the environment.

Esmu nedaudz apsēsta ar šo koka glāsi,pirmkārt cik iedvesmojošs ir šis sauklis?!Un otrkārt koka traukiem vienmēr ir sava veida šarms kas nepiemīt nekam citam.Kā arī tā ir labas kvalitātes un smaržo pēc koka(pēc pirmās mazgašanas smarža pazūd)

I’m a little bit obsessed with this wooden glass, first of all, the motto on it so inspiring! I love wooden things and the quality is amazing. It has a wooden scent when you first open it, but after the first wash, it goes away.

Nakošais kastē ir salmiņs- ,speciāli Mate tējas dzeršanai.Materiāls ,nerūsējošs tērauds. Ļoti ērta lieta ,pilnīgi citāds „experience” nekā  bez tā.

Next in the box is the straw-made especially for drinking Mate tea. Material, steel. A very handy thing that changes the whole tea drinking experience.

Un protams galvenais-pati tēja!Iepakota kraft pakā kas ir atkārtoti aiztaisāma.Man ļoti patīk dizains,tiešām skaisti izskatās pie manām parējām tējām plauktā. Pati tējas kvalitāte ir laba,lapas ir pietiekami smalki sagriestas lai neietu cauri salmiņa sietiņam.Informācija par izcelmes valsti un citām svarīgām lietām ir pakas aizmugurē.

🎁

Kā arī šī tēja būs superīga dāvana svētkos ikvienam kas mīl mēģināt ko jaunu ,izmanto atlaides kodu – annamindvit25 lai dabūtu 25% atlaidi visiem produktiem mindvit.lv i-veikalā + bezmaksas piegāde no 25 euro un iepriecinātu kādu vai arī sevi ar šo dzērienu

And the most important thing-The tea! Packaged in a reclosable kraft bag. I like the design, looks cute next to my other teas. The quality of the tea is good, the leaves are a good size, perfect for using the straw. Information about the country of origin and the company you can find on the back of the package.

New Makeup to try(haul)-Blogtober day 22

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? Hope your day is going great and you are enjoying the weekend. It’s day 22 of Blogtober, can you imagine we are almost at the end? Crazy! Last week I finally saw my friends, we drink some coffee and walked around Oldtown. One of my friends got me some new makeup for my birthday, it was so nice of her (feeling so blessed) and now I want to share it with you . Maybe you are planning to get some of it and want to know if it’s worth it or maybe you are looking to try something new. Hope you find it helpful ! Let’s dive into it.

Oriflame Love Nature Cold Cream (Beeswax and Almond oil)

In this cold weather, a good chapstick is a must! And a cold cream one?Definitely, something I want to try. This is great, doesn’t feel greasy on my lips and it smells AMAZing. Like truly puts me in a good mood when I put it on.

RIVAL loves me Stay4ever Lipgloss 05 light coral

Ohhhh I like it! This is so genius. Like one side is matt lipstick and another side is a clear gloss you put on the matt lipstick after a minute. And Guysss…this is mind-blowing! Your lips don’t feel dry, but you still have the long-lasting properties of a fully matt lipstick.I will definitely do a full-on review here and on my instagram becouse this is sooo good.

Rdel Young Rouge Mono Blush Blusher 05 Light Toffee

This is interesting, works well as a bronzer but it has a red undertone(I’m guessing it wasn’t meant for extra pale ghost-like people like myself ). And it doesn’t look super flattering on me, but overall I really like the quality. Has no scent and isn’t chalky.

NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie Xxl Liquid Lip Warm Up

Wow, this is Wow! Mask proof, kissing proof, and drinking/eating proof. Like, you can’t get it off and that’s amazing. Another product I will definitely do a full on review.

Oriflame Spring Blossoms Hand Cream Trio Jasmine

In this dark and cold time, good-smelling hand cream can really put you in a great mood. I love this scent so much, it’s sooo good.I need like 20 of those (I’m lowkey obsessed)

Unboxing SKDK Sports Knee Pad from Aliexpress-Blogtober day 21

Hello, My Darlings!New day, new unboxing. Got some new stuff…My mom has knee problems, we looked in the local stores for a knee pad, but never found the “right one”.So because of that I looked on Aliexpress and I found this super great deal on a knee pad(I paid 2,87 euro, super affordable), and finally today it came in the mail. Here is the unboxing.

You can find this product here

It came in a “classical” aliexpress Polly mailer, inside there was a reusable zip lock bag with the knee pad. I got the size XXL for my mom. The fit was okay, needed to take a size up but that’s my fault.

Out of the bag , the first thing I saw was great quality. The product looks so good and very well made. So the set contains a knee pad and elastic band you can adjust.

At the back, there is a small elastic attached to the knee pad where you can slide in the adjustable strap. Very well made.

The velcro is very sturdy, I think it will be long-lasting and that’s great. The whole pad is made from Nylon and is exercise-friendly.

Overall I’m so glad I got it! The quality is amazing, the price is great and it actually works pretty well (from the first try on and walking around). Will keep you posted how my mom likes it.

That’s it from me

Oriflame Royal Velvet Firming Eye Contour Cream review-Blogtober day 20

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

Improves the appearance of under-eye circles for women 40+. Enriched with Black Iris Infusion to leave eyes feeling smoother and firmer and looking visibly younger.

  • Helps Tightens and re-contours skin around the eye
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves the appearance of dark circles and puffiness
  • Eyes feel smoother and firmer

My Thoughts

Another Oriflame product I tried for the first time. This one was a birthday gift from a dear friend, she loves Oriflame and always gets me something. I tried this eye cream for a week straight and here are my thoughts. Let’s dive into it!

PACKAGING

Cute cardboard box, inside there is a “how-to” manual(sometimes it’s a very needed thing). The actual eye cream tube is very well made, from sturdy plastic, and looks expensive.

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

The eye cream is thick but not extra thick, and that’s very nice. The cream has no scent, and it feels light under the eyes. Weirdly enough there is very fine glitter in the cream, don’t know if it helps with anything, but it’s here. Of course, it’s too early to say but, my undereye feels much smoother and a little bit lighter, so that’s amazing. Another great thing, it’s not greasy. I have a problem with too greasy eye creams, sadly it breaks me out. That’s why eye creams usually are a very big hit or miss, but this was a hit(for now).

OVERALL

Overall a good product and I would highly encourage you to try it for yourself,and…it makes a great gift for any mom/aunt/grandmother.

 Pros  

  • A cute packaging
  • Not greasy
  • Doesn’t have a scent

Cons

  • can be expensive

Nyxia (The Nyxia Triad #1) by Scott Reintgen book review-Blogtober day 15

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

What would you be willing to risk for a lifetime of fortune?

Emmett Atwater isn’t just leaving Detroit; he’s leaving Earth. Why the Babel Corporation recruited him is a mystery, but the number of zeroes on their contract has him boarding their lightship and hoping to return to Earth with enough money to take care of his family.

Forever.

Before long, Emmett discovers that he is one of ten recruits, all of whom have troubled pasts and are a long way from home. Now each recruit must earn the right to travel down to the planet of Eden—a planet that Babel has kept hidden—where they will mine a substance called Nyxia that has quietly become the most valuable material in the universe.

But Babel’s ship is full of secrets. And Emmett will face the ultimate choice: win the fortune at any cost, or find a way to fight that won’t forever compromise what it means to be human.

The story– 3/5

Setting of the book– 4/5

Smexy Times?– Not really

OVERALL – 3,5/5 STARS

Finally, I read this one! This is the first book in a trilogy, and to be honest..it’s bland if you don’t start reading the second book right after the first one. Like it does lay a good foundation of the story, but it’s not a 10 book series I wanted a little bit more, more “meat”.The writing was good(very straightforward), easy to understand. Overall I’m excited to read the second book and see where the story goes.

How to start a budget for Christmas(FREE PRINTABLE)-Blogtober day 14

Hello, My Darlings! It’s day 14 of Blogtober…Yes, yes you read it right we are talking Christmas budget and how to save money(it’s never too early). “Thanks” to the pandemic I don’t have a stable income anymore, so budgeting is important and very needed. Here are some tips and tricks that actually work(and at the end of the post you will find a free pdf).

Start buying stuff Now! YES NOW!

You see a great deal on candles? Buy some! You go grocery shopping and find a cute blanket at a discount your aunt would totally love? Get it , It’s easier to spend 10 euros every month now than 30 euros in December. What will you feel more?

Decide what you want to buy to buy and google it

You decided on these cute socks for your boyfriend? Don’t buy the first ones you find, Google it. There is a very good chance you will find it cheaper. Do your research.

Handmade is always a great idea!

Handmade gifts(or something handmade to put too your gift) are always a great idea and usually really affordable. Get inspired, look on Pinterest, and get creative.

Don’t overspend

It’s so easy to just go on and buy more and more, not stopping. So make a budget and stick to it. Feel free to download this free printable to make your life easier this festive season.

Throwback to Summer”Trip to Sigulda”-Blogtober day 13

Hello, My Darlings! It’s day 13 of Blogtober and we are looking back to some fun summer memories. This summer I was lucky enough to travel Latvia with my darling Boyfriend. One of my favorite trips was to Sigulda, with so much history and beautiful nature.

Gutma’s Cave-The oldes tourist attraction in Latvia

This is the widest and highest cave in the Baltic.Tourists have wished to leave “decorations” such as names, initials, and the dates of their trips inscribed on the cave’s walls since the cave’s inception. You can see coats of arms and names of numerous barons and estate owners inside the cave.

Local craftsmen would wait for wealthier tourists near the cave with tools, stepladders, and templates to make these to order for a price.

Now the cave is a protected archeological and geological monument, so no writing on the walls.

The Krimulda Castle

The Krimulda Castle is located just outside Sigulda, Sigulda municipality, Latvia, and is a tourist attraction. The castle dates from the 14th century and was destroyed in a war in 1601 and it still stands, and the view from it is beautiful.

Inside the castle

Krimuldas Church-The oldest church in Latvia

Built-in 1205, this ancient church is the oldest functioning house of worship in Latvia. It is closely associated with the Livonian chieftain Kaupo who is either buried in or nearby the church depending on which sources you choose to believe. Kaupo was the first important tribal chief in the area to embrace the Christian faith and even made a pilgrimage to Rome where Pope Innocent III received him and recognized him as the ruler of the Livonian tribes in present-day Latvia.

He left with a gift of gold with which he build the church. It’s located in a beautiful area surrounded by streams, forests, and nature trails as well as the 18th-century Minister’s House accessible by a wooden pedestrian bridge. Truly an amazing place , a beautiful one too.

Overall I would highly recommend you to visit Sigulda when traveling to Latvia. It’s beautiful and full of history(and you will definitely take instagram worthy photos).
