Why my Blog started!

20190106_142911_500To be very honest This is the second blog I ever made, my first blog doesn’t exist anymore(I deleted it). I made this blog because I wanted to start fresh, really put the effort into blogging, share with the world my thoughts, and try to see if it’s something for me. And I can say, I love it! I love blogging and connecting to people through my blog.

ADVICE to new Bloggers!
  • Being a new Blogger can be intimidating, there will be lots of people who will “grow” faster than you, who will get opportunities before you. Don’t get discouraged, you are still amazing and your work is valid. There is no time limit for success. 
  • Social Media is your best friend. I’m still learning this one myself but getting more people to read and follow your blog through social media (like Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, etc.) is such an important thing, and starting to promote your blog(just don’t spam people please) when you just “launched” will really help you to “grow” your blog.

 

I NOMINATE:

(No pressure to do this “award”)

Again Thank you  Lexington bookie for Nominating me!

That’s it from me

giphy (58)Hello, my Lovelies! How are you all doing? It’s the Day 6 of Blogmas, Do you feel the Holidays coming? Today I want to talk about Christmas movies, the new ones I’m excited to watch this year.I feel like movies are a great way to get into the Holiday mood. Let’ start with movies I’m watching this month!

Every Day is Christmas

everyday is christmasInspired by the Charles Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol,” shrewd money manager Alexis Taylor (Toni Braxton) gets the holiday visit of a lifetime. A self-proclaimed workaholic who “humbugs” love, Alexis ends up embracing the spirit of Christmas when her past, present, and future collide, forcing her to risk the one thing money can’t buy: her heart.

 

 

ROAD TO CHRISTMAS

p16064253_v_v8_aaLos Angeles television producer Maggie Baker (Schram) unwittingly falls for Danny Wise (Murray), the son and former producer of his mother’s (Rothery) popular annual Christmas special Julia Wise Lifestyle. When Maggie’s secret plan to reunite Danny and his two brothers with Julia during the live broadcast in Vermont goes awry, Maggie is reminded that above all, it is the love for family and friends that makes the merriest of Christmas.

I’m doing Blogmas This year!… wish me luck

Photo by Markus Spiske on Unsplash

tumblr_pc6bcqr71A1r2pp2to1_400Hello, My darlings! How are you doing on this beautiful day? How was your November? Mine was pretty good, I’m already really excited for the Holiday season(already singing and listening to Christmas Songs). And it’s snowing in Latvia! Everything looks so magical, like in a Christmas movie or story. This year I decided it would be fun to do Blogmas, If you don’t know what is Blogmas(Or Vlogmas for Youtube Vloggers ) it’s a “challenge ” to post a blog post a day from the 1 of December till Christmas eve or the end of December. So from the 1. December till 24. December you will get a post a day from me (Mostly Holiday Related, be ready!). Wish me luck, because I will need it!

 

Tell me in the comments, Are you doing Blogmas? 

That’s it from me 

See you tomorrow!

Let’s see How my New Year Resolutions are going!

Photo by Sharon McCutcheon on Unsplash

giphy (36)Hello, my darlings! The summer ended and slowly we are going into autumn, it’s almost the end of the year and I haven’t talked about my update on  New Year Resolutions.  I had almost forgotten that I even wrote it all down, but thanks to some friends and my blog I had a very good reminder (here is the original post). Let me share how they all are going!

 

  • Be More Organised!

This is going pretty good(In my opinion). I found “To Do Lists” work the best for me to be on track and to do more. Sadly my planner got lost somewhere and now I use just a simple notebook.

giphy (31)

  • Be kinder to myself and others 

I would say I’m doing really good with this one. Try to be calmer and kinder to others, but being kinder to myself is hard.

giphy (35)

  • Work more!

In a way …Yes!I do help more around the house and in the business too. But of course, I could work even more.

giphy (32)

  • Eat Healthier

Ahhhh……I do eat a lot of fruits, does it counts? I would say that I need to work on it a little bit more.

giphy (33)

  • Be more active on Instagram

I am better with Instagram, but still, need to work a little bit harder. Sometimes I still forget to post anything for a week.

January Favourites!

20180126_141842

Hello, my darlings!It’s the end of January, the first month of 2018.Where does the time go?! January was a really chill month for me, lots of quality time with my brother watching Get smart (it was still celebration season in our household)so you can imagine how much food I had eaten, and I’m already failing my new year’s resolutions…Who’s with me on this?(But I do try to get better).But we are not here to talk about me failing, but about my January favourites…Let’s start with that!

Beauty Favourites!

HTB1uA4mOpXXXXcpaXXXq6xXFXXXh

Focallure Blush
This month I just loved this blush. It’s so pigmented and has such a lovely finish on the skin, will definitely buy more colours.

Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy

This was a Christmas gift from my lovely friend Alina, and I totally love this. I have used this “set” for a month straight…and my hair is very thankful. It feels smooth and healthy, give it a try if you have very overprocessed hair and need to make it more alive.

FAVORITE TV SHOW

get-smart-2

Get Smart

Bumbling Maxwell Smart, Agent 86 for CONTROL, battles the evil forces of KAOS with the help of his competent partner Agent 99.

FAVORITE BOOK

The Alien Prince: Kovos (Clans of the Ennoi #2)

38091911

As the heat between them grows, so does the threat of war. 
Prince Kovos of the Ennoi knows a loveless, but politically advantageous marriage will end the decades of bloodshed his people have endured. Kovos’s plans for peace go awry when a human woman interrupts his betrothal ceremony – by declaring she’s already his Bonded mate! At the sight of her enticing beauty, logic leaves Kovos. He can’t focus on petty diplomacy or his boring duties when all he wants to do is claim what is his. 
Years ago, Kovos saved nine-year-old Jenna Harlock from human trafficking mercenaries. By re-entering his life, she jeopardizes his fragile peace accord. Despite her fear of aliens, Jenna’s childhood crush blooms into something she ran from her whole life: love. But she can’t give her heart to Kovos. His enemies have her sister. If Jenna doesn’t assassinate the prince, her sister dies. 
Jenna has to trust her alien prince if they are to have any hope of unraveling the sinister plot threatening everything Kovos has built. If they fail, they will lose more than just their happiness – they’ll lose their lives

FAVORITE TV SHOW

Versailles

6f5ac65f431c51b47c8f63854afd0c91

Versailles, 1667. Haunted by the trauma of the Fronde, as the nobles of his court begin to rebel against the monarchy, 28-year-old King Louis XIV of France and Navarre (George Blagden), in a Machiavellian political move, decides to make the nobility submit by imposing a definitive move of the court from Paris to Versailles, his father’s former hunting lodge. Trapped by their king’s “invitation”, the nobles of Paris gradually come to see the castle as a gilded prison, and soon even the most humble courtiers of the king begin to show their viciousness as the alcoves of secrets, politics, and war are maneuvered through, revealing Versailles in all its glory and brutality.

and

The White Queen

81arBJFvDKL._RI_

A portrayal of one of the most dramatic and turbulent times in English history. A story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women – Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne. The year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, and war has been ravaging throughout England over who is the rightful King. It is a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster. The House of York’s young and handsome Edward IV is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick “The Kingmaker.” But when Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick’s plan to control the throne comes crashing down.

Practical Gifts For Bloggers

tenorHello, my Lovelies!Hope you are having a great week. I can’t believe it’s December already, and today we are opening the first door on our advent calendars. Time does fly, right? Today I want to talk about gifts for the blogger in your life(or yourself).We all know that making the best content possible is hard, so I found some very useful(and affordable ) things to make this task a little easier.

Let’s start

* Super bright led beads, provide soft & average light

quality picture for small products

This is a pretty cool and handy thing to have around to take pictures of small products for your blog or Instagram. I really like how compact it is , and the light strip is just perfect for bright and high-quality pictures. Think I will get this “studio” for myself, so look out for a review!

I think everyone needs a journal for the new year, especialy bloggers.All those ideas for new post/video plans or maybe meetings and collabs need to be written somewhere down and a journal/planner is great for that. So if you are not sure about what to get your blogger friend, a planner is a great gift!

That’s it from me
