Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? If you didn’t know I love Aliexpress, and finally some of my orders came in(my last Aliexpress haul you can read here). And…I got a lot of great stuff, everything was under 5 euros .So very affordable. Let’s dive into it!

 pearl Barrettes /Hair Clip

Price – 1.66 euro($2,01)

Shipping to Latvia(EU)– 2 weeks, really fast!

Aren’t those beautiful?! I love fake pearls and when I saw those…I knew I need them in my life. Those are really well made, great quality, perfect for summer! And those hair clips came REALLY fast. Definitely will get some more.

 

Silver Color A-Z 26 Letters Initial  Rings

Price – 0.55 euro($0.64)

Shipping to Latvia(EU)– around a month

I have seen here and there those initial rings, and when I saw something similar on Aliexpress…I WAS SOOO HAPPY! And the price …UNDER 1 EURO! So of course I got myself one. I’m very glad I got it. The quality is good for the price, the shipping was okay.

 Sabrina Stickers 10 pcs

Price – 0.81 euro($0.94 )

Shipping to Latvia(EU) -around a month 

My newest obsession is Sabrina. Have you seen it? If not, you need to watch it. So I got some Sabrina stickers. You can’t decide what kind of stickers you get , but for the price that’s okay. Quality is AMAZING! Matt finish, pretty thick stickers. And I got the sticker I wanted(the Not Today, Satan).

15 Pcs  kpop Bigbang stickers 

Price – 1.78euro($2,16)

Shipping to Latvia(EU)-almost 2 months

If you didn’t know I’m a big BIGBANG fan. And this is my first “official” BIGBANG merch and I’m delighted I got it. The quality is almost the same as the Sabrina stickers, so it’s good. The shipping was slow…sadly. My only complaint is that I got 14 stickers and not 15…

 

Kpop Super Junior Poster

Price – 1.51 euro($1,83)

Shipping to Latvia(EU)-almost 2 months (around 35 days)

Another legendary Kpop group I love…and FINALLY, I own a good quality poster. Super excited about it(hehe, see what I did there?!). So I got A4 (30cmX21cm), it came with special stickers for the wall but I decided to put it in a frame. Overall would totally recommend this store and of course this poster.

Avon “Luck” for Her Eau de Parfum-review

ABOUT THE PRODUCT :

Sparkling citrus and luscious berries blended with creamy white florals and warm sandalwood.

  • Top: Pink Pepper
  • Heart: Nutmeg
  • Base: Sandalwood Essence

My thoughts :

I got this perfume for myself as a Christmas gift. The price was 4.99 euro for 30ml, so very affordable.

Packaging

I got the 30 ml version, so the packaging is average. It’s a solid glass bottle(a little bit heavy and that’s amazing). The 50 ml bottle is MUCH cuter(it has a bow on it), but the cardboard box of this one is such good quality(very sturdy), I’m impressed.

Quality and Scent

The quality of the perfume is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It stays on my skin a whole day, like around 8h. But on my clothes, it stays even longer, like 24h. I’m so happy with it. The scent is great too, it’s sweet but not overbearing. I love Sandalwood and you can really smell in this perfume.

It’s New Year and I’m overwhealmed…(I’m back!)

Photo by Sincerely Media on Unsplash

Hello My Darlings!How are you all doing? I’m so sorry for being away for some time..but First of all…Happy NEW YEAR!

Hope this year started amazingly and all of your wishes will come true.

Amazing 2021 Happy New Year Gif Animation

Let’s talk a little bit about Why I was away.  So…the short answer- I got overwhelmed with everything. The cases of Covid-19 in Latvia are in all time high and our government decided to do a total lockdown,yes we had a lockdown before…but this one was(and still is) much more stricter and they announced it a day before it started, one of the big “deals” was that all stores will be closed and you could buy just the essentials (like groceries) until 13.February…overwhelming gifs | WiffleGifSo you can imagine what happened that particular day (a week before Christmas). But…it wasn’t the end (of course…why should it be?!)A day before New Years eve…we got a CURFEW.Like…no one can be outside after 22:00 at night and before 05:00 at morning. For like a week…And at the same time my everyday life was very GO GO GO .You can imagine how hectic it all was and still is.Marilyn Monroe pouring champagne. celebration gif | Marilyn monroe gif,  Marilyn, Marilyn monroe

 

But on the brighter note – This was the first New Year I didn’t spend with my family ,but with my boyfriend(and yes…I have a boyfriend…very unexpectedly…like REALLY UNEXPECTEDLY) and my friends and family really outdid themselves this year and got me some really cool stuff for Christmas(post coming soon). Basically December and the start of January was unexpected ,hopeful and busy.

Packaging

This is the third palette I have from this brand. Very well made, the packaging is cardboard, it has a magnetic closure. Easy to carry in your bag, would love to have a mirror, but that’s just me.

 

Texture and Quality

IMG-20201008-152847

Easy to blend, like it’s suuupppeeerr easy! Eyeshadow doesn’t have any scent and that’s amazing. Doesn’t stain my eyelids. The Yellow shade is powdery and the shimmery shades don’t work well with brushes, but that’s my only complaint.

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

It’s oily…like REALLY oily. Don’t know how it is marketed for “oily and Acne pron” skin.

THE PRICE

I paid around 5 euros with a 30% discount. So it was pretty affordable.

SKIN AFTER USE

IT RUINED MY SKIN! I’m serious. My skin became,2 hours after using this one, super oily like you can FRY FOOD ON IT OILY. I thought it’s one of those products that made your skin worst before making it better(we all know “those” products), but no…My skin is still awful because of this product…and I’m still trying to fix the mess. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND if your skin is not sensitive or is super oily to being with.

PACKAGING

It’s the same plastic as the first one, I liked the pump it was pretty handy. You can see the product easily…but to be honest I would love to see it in clear plastic not blue.

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

It’s a thick gel-like formula, very gentle ..too gentle in my opinion because my face still felt dirty after washing it.

THE PRICE

The same as the first product, around 5 euros with the discount.

SKIN AFTER USE

It was one of the worst face washing gels I have ever used! And I have used a lot of those. It’s…simply awful, my face was oily, my acne got worst …It’s just a mess. Would not recommend it at all!

My Thoughts :

IMG_20200801_150238

Packaging

It’s really bulky, so usually, I just put it in a smaller container for everyday use.

Quality and Scent

This is our 3 bottle of this shampoo, my mom loves it so we always have it in our house. It has a very nice caramel scent ,it’s not overbearing on your hair but you can definitely smell it across the room when someone is having a shower. How I already said my mom loves it , it makes her hair shiny and easy to brush… I, on the other hand, it always makes my hair frizzy. Like REALLY frizzy. Yes it feels healthy and my scalp feels nice…but my hair looks crazy ,don’t know how or why, but that’s how it is for me.

OVERALL

A good family type of shampoo for an affordable price.

 Pros  
  • Great scent
  • Lots of product in the bottle
  • Great for the whole family
  • Affordable
Cons
  • Not travel friendly
  • Makes my hair frizzy

Nivea Colour Protect mild Shampoo- Review

About the Product:

Nivea Colour Protection Mild Shampoo (250 ml), Gentle Nourishing Shampoo with color care complex hair shampoo for healthy, colored hair

  • Colour protection – The mild Nivea Colour Protection Shampoo nourishes colored hair particularly intensively and protects the hair color for longer color shine.
  • Colour care complex – with every use, the nourishing Nivea shampoo with its color care complex makes dyed hair noticeably supple.
  • pH balance: thanks to its pH-optimised formula, the shampoo is particularly mild on hair and scalp and harmonizes with your natural pH value.
  • Gentle cleansing: the shampoo gently cleanses the scalp. At the same time, it strengthens the hair structure and intensively nourishes for naturally beautiful hair

My Thoughts 

IMG_20200801_150517

PACKAGING

Nothing fancy about it, just a simple shampoo bottle. It’s really easy to use, so no complaints there! 

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

Mmmkay, the name says it all, it’s a very mild shampoo. Yes, your hair color will not fade, and yes you will clean your hair…but it’s not a great shampoo if you have very oily skin and need a little bit more to clean your scalp. I think it’s more for people with sensitive scalp and colored hair. Overall a decent shampoo for the money.

OVERALL

jake-weirick-Q_RBVFFXR_g-unsplash

Pros  

  •  Hair color doesn’t fade
  • Makes your hair feel nice and silky
  • Affordable(at least in Latvia)
  • Has a very light scent, not overbearing

Cons

  • Not a lot of product in the packaging

It’s a very simple glass jar(we love that it’s not plastic), nothing special about it. But it’s a heavy jar, so not really travel friendly. Easy to open and close, the lid is plastic.

garnier cream packaging

It’s a very light but tacky jelly-like texture, it has a light scent(I don’t really like it). It doesn’t contain any oils ,and that’s amazing! I’m happy with the quality.

My thoughts

Quality

5/5 stars

1483933

I’m impressed! The Jade Roller is all made from “jade”(the roller part and the handle),I don’t know if that’s real Jade but feels really sturdy. It’s a pretty heavy product and that’s amazing. The “spiky” part is much more gentle on the skin than I anticipated and the “smooth” part is really nice on the skin. I like the “gold” details

jade roller

Does it work?

For me personally?No! But for my Mom?! She loved it!I tried it for a week ,every morning and I will be honest…it was painful. It felt like I was massaging my bones not skin. My Mom on the other hand loves it! She said it felt very relaxing and helped with under-eye bags. So it’s not for everyone.

Would I recommend?

It’s pretty cheap ,so why not ? Yes,it’s not for everyone ,but it’s still an interesting product to try.
