Aliexpress Haul “everything under 5 euros”

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? Finally, my orders from Aliexpress are coming in, most of those are Holiday gifts for my friends and family. If you don’t know AliExpress is a popular online store for buying products at much cheaper prices than Amazon and other similar services. Everything is under 5 euros, so very affordable!

Let’s dive into the goodies!

VPB S32 earphones

The best cheap earphones I have ever got! This is my second order from this particular store, so I have already tested those earphones and I can say…those are heavy-duty(I’m not gentle with my earphones, so I change them regularly), and the sound is pretty good. In this order, I got one pair for myself as a backup and one for my brother as a stocking stuffer. The shipping was super fast too, A little over a week to Latvia.

Men’s Autumn Summer Socks 

Another stocking stuffer for my brother. I know it wasn’t intentional, but the little color stripe looks like a Latvian flag. That’s the main reason why I got this pair, and the price was amazing(around 0.80 euro). Quality is pretty good, definitely stretchy cotton. Would recommend!

Cotton Christmas Socks

Aren’t those cute?! Super affordable and super cute. To be honest, I got the cheaper Santa socks, but they send me those …I’m not mad about it. Shipping was fast, the quality is okay. I paid 0.56 euro.

925 Sterling Silver Leaves Long Tassels Earrings

This is a gift for my mom. She loves silver jewelry, and those looked like something she will enjoy. It was an 11.11 deal and I paid around 1.33 euro I think. The quality is amazing and it came with a pouch and a cloth to polish earrings. Very happy with the purchase. The shipping was a little over two weeks to Latvia from China.

  • Bergamot, jade flower and cashmere woods.
  • Creamy texture easily absorbs into skin.
  • 48-hour moisturisation*.
  • Infused with perfume oils.
  • 100ml.

*After multiple applications.

Why I got it: I tried a body lotion tester with this scent and I knew I need to get something from this range. It has such a rich and beautiful scent! It does stay on your clothes for hours. The packaging is pretty simple,it’s affordable(I got it for a little bit under 4 euros).

luxe lash
 Luxe Volumising Mascara Caviar Black

About the product:

Avon Luxe Volumising Mascara Caviar Black is a volumizing mascara infused with black diamond powder and rich pigments to coat lashes with an intensely dark black shade. The lash-boosting wand works to sculpt and define lashes from root to tip.

Why I got it: I got this as a promotion gift(spend 19.99 euros and you got this mascara). Overall I like it, it’s good. Is it my favorite mascara ever made? No! Is it still a good product I enjoy? Yes.

mark glow on
 mark. Glow On Face Illuminator

About the product :

  • Iridescent, light-gold formula for a luminous glow
  • Glitter-free finish. Wear over make-up on targeted areas for a light-reflecting luminous, strobed effect

  • Lightweight texture. Perfects, moisturises and adds natural-looking radiance.
  • Wear alone to help brighten, blur imperfections and even skin tone or under make-up as a pore-minimising, radiance-boosting base for a longer-lasting look

Why I got it: It was marketed as a dewy primer, and I have never tried those, That’s why I got it. My fellow people with oily skin, this is made for you! It has a water base, not oily or sticky after putting on the skin. That’s a big plus, but it will look better if you have a deeper skin tone. Is it a primer? No, I wouldn’t call it that, more like a wet highlighter, The quality is good, will see how I will like it.

True Colour Finishing Pearls

About the product :

Want a flawless, natural-looking finish in seconds?

Whether you wear it alone or over your favourite foundation, these pearls will give you the flawless finish you deserve.

Why I got it: This looked interesting,basically that’s why I got it. I have already tried it, do I like it? Right now, not so much. Does it mattify your skin? Yes, I would say it does. But I don’t like it how those pearls stick to my powder brush, that’s annoying if you are in a hurry. Let’s see how I feel about it in the future.

Color Trend Kiss n Go, Lipstick Poppy

About the product :

  • Long-lasting colour.
  • Smooth and even application.
  • In Poppy Love
  • SPF15
  • Instantly moisturises.

Why I got it: It had a good price and I have never had anything from this range, and the color looked good. Don’t know how I feel about this one, it’s not as creamy as I anticipated.Will see after a few uses how I feel about it then.

About the book: Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan...

But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words... And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

Why I got it: FanGirl is one of my favorite books of all times, but I haven’t got a physical copy. That’s why I was happy to see a Latvian copy for a great price. How you can see the Latvian edition has a different cover than the American one, and I don’t really like it. Definitely not a cover buy for me.

Such a beautiful image : Jackie Kennedy, 1929-1994

About the book:  A look inside the life of Jackie Kennedy.
Why I got it: This one was a cover buy . I saw this book in the advertisement for our local bookstore and knew that I need to get it. I like how this one has photos in it, that really bring the story to life

Winter tree

By Ellen Mattson


About the book: Nobody knows Greta Garbo as well as Wendel Berg, 
the girl who has become the stars personal secretary in the 20th century  Hollywood. Wendel keeps Greta safe from attention, helps her sign contracts and deposit money.
 Both of them live, work and travel - with Greta's lover or two. 
Those are the 30's, Greta Garbo's fame boom. 
She plays Anne Kristi, Mata Hari, and Queen Kristina. 
However, she is a prisoner of her glory and dreams of retreat, 
just as Queen Christina departed from the throne.
Why I got it: First, I don’t know a lot about Greta Garbo and I would love to found out more. Second, Can we just talk about the cover? I love it! And Third, the secretary has the same surname as me. I’m excited to read this one

My skincare haul!(the Cruise edition )

giphy-10Hello, my darlings! How is your week going? Do you feel the summer coming? This week we had such an amazing weather, very sunny and warm(the perfect weather for BBQ or picnic) Today I want to talk about stuff I got for and on my trip to Stockholm. If you have read my last post then you already know that I was in Stockholm (as part of my Cruise Riga- Stockholm – Riga),and here is what I got on the ship!

Everything I got this time!

LET’S START!

 

IMG_20180430_122044

Clinique 3 Piece Anti-Blemish Solutions 3-Step System Kit

I love Clinique products, and when I saw this set for a pretty good price I just needed to get it! I have tried already the Clarifying lotion and the All-Over clearing treatment, and this far I quite like it.It’s pretty good with fighting the acne I have and keeping my face oil free.

 

img_20180430_122010.jpg

Isana Young Active Clear Washcream 

 for oily skin

I got this face wash for my trip(like the last minute purchase) because mine run out. This was VERY affordable.I like the cooling effect it has when you put it on. For now, I am very glad I got it!

 

IMG_20180430_122003

Beauty Formulas Purifying Charcoal Deep

Cleansing Nose Pore Strips 6pcs

I have already used those all up. Another beauty item I got for my trip. Those are good strips, nothing extra fancy. It does have a cooling, calming effect(that’s a plus), but I think I like the other ones from this brand better.

 

IMG_20180430_122536

Clinique Pep-Start  HydroBlur Moisturizer

When I saw this moisturizer almost 10 euros cheaper in the ships store I know I needed to get it! I have tried (before buying it) a tester that I got with my last purchase in my local makeup store, and I really liked it. It goes perfectly under makeup and works like a primer.For now, I’m very happy with this moisturizer.

Tell me in the comments, What is the last beauty item you got?Did you like it?

Aliexpress haul Part 3!

giphy (4)
And I recently got a haircut!

Hello, my lovely people! Hope you all are having a great week so far!I’m back (finally) with the Aliexpress haul (the last part of my 11.11 sales haul) part 3 (you can read part 2 and part 1 here). If you don’t know anything about Aliexpress it’s basically like eBay, but better(in my opinion).Everything in this part is pretty affordable(under 5 euros).

Let’s start!

15Pcs/set 1/12 Doll House Miniature Porcelain Tea Set

If you don’t know that already I collect dolls(1/6 scale like Barbies or Monster High) And Aliexpress has a wide range of miniatures (for kids and for collectors ), but mostly just the 1/12 scale stuff is oriented towards collectors, so I found this cute porcelain set for my dolls. Yes, it’s a little on the smaller side for 1/6 scale dolls, but it still looks pretty realistic (as in almost the right size for my dolls). This set did come to Latvia the longest(almost 4 months) and really I lost all hope for it to even make it, but it did!And I’m very happy with it. Great product for such low price.

IMG_20180206_135820

Women 3D Low Cut Christmas Socks

It’s not my first time getting socks from Aliexpress and I almost always love them, and those weren’t an exception.I got 3 pairs ( 2 pairs as gifts for my friends) I love the print and the quality. And they are cheap + free shipping, totally worth it!

IMG_20180321_160405

Faux Leather Travel Passport Holder

This one I got for my brother because I couldn’t watch how his passport get’s slowly destroyed. It’s very nice and soft faux leather, looks not cheap at all. Loved this and would recommend!

IMG_20180204_140449

Bra+Pants Underwear Set (I couldn’t find the exact link )

I can say just one thing, It’s the most comfortable set I have ever owned!Yes,the quality is so so ,but it’s very comfortable and the bra gives great support.Would definitely recommend!

Tell me in the comments, How’s your week so far?

“I got new STUFF” haul

hotHello, my darlings! How are you? Finally, here in Latvia, we got a real winter (with snow, ice and -20 C*).That means shopping for warm clothes and skin care stuff(because my skin is acting up in this weather).And today I want to talk about the skincare/makeup I got recently. Almost all of them I have tried those few days,so Let’s start!

 

Makeup

Maybelline Dream Matte bb with salicylic acid

in the colour 03 light

It was my first time seeing it in a new design. I like it more than the original one FOR SURE. The colour match is okay for me, not perfect, but at the same time, not the worst( I think it’s the same exact colour as the light/medium was).Overall I’m happy with this product.

 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

essence Camouflage full coverage concealer

When I was browsing our local drugstore essence stand I found this pretty cool concealer that I have never seen before. The price was great (a little under 3 euro) so I got it in the colour 10 nude (sadly the 05 was sold out).It has a pinkish undertone, covers undereye circles and small imperfections pretty well. Stays on all day. The colour match is much better than most “light” drugstore concealers(on my skin). I really like it.

 

SkinCare

Beauty Formulas charcoal clay mask

I haven’t tried anything from this brand, so this is my first product from them.This mask smells really good. I like the consistency and I feel like it does help with the oiliness and imperfections of my skin. It was cheap(under 2 euros with my discount card).Really happy and glad that I got it!

 

Processed with VSCO with  preset

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Mask

This is my 3rd time repurchase it , so you can tell that I like it a lot. It’s a great mask for oily skin, would definitely recommend.

 

Body/Haircare

Green Pharmacy Shower Gel with strawberries and mint

You know the smell of wild strawberries that you can find just in the forest?Well, this smells exactly like that and I love it!

Processed with VSCO with  preset

 Syoss Full Hair 5 Extra Strong Hold Fullness & Volume Hair Mousse 250ml

With my new haircut, a hair mousse is a must! Right now I have love/hate relationship with this one, but I just started using it so maybe in the future I will change my mind.

The Dracula Dossier

by James Reese

About the book ; Author of the New York Times bestseller The Book of Shadows, James Reese returns with a remarkable feat of literary invention. In The Dracula Dossier, Reese combines real historical figures and events—Bram Stoker, Walt Whitman, Jack the Ripper—with glorious speculation in a tour de force of suspense fiction that races non-stop through Victorian London. Bestselling author Michael Connelly raves about The Dracula Dossier, calling it, “a damn good thriller…that had me mesmerized from chapter one.”

Big Miracle

by Tom Rose

About the book ; Now a major motion picture starring Drew Barrymore, Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Tim Blake Nelson, John Krasinski, and Vinessa Shaw—an account of the dramatic rescue of three gray whales trapped under the ice in Alaska in 1988.
Set in Cold War–era 1988, Big Miracle tells the real story behind the remarkable, bizarre, and oftentimes uproarious event that mesmerized the world for weeks. On October 7, an Inuit hunter near Barrow, Alaska, found three California Gray whales imprisoned in the Arctic ice. In the past, as was nature’s way, trapped whales always died. Not this time. Tom Rose, who was covering the event for a Japanese TV station, compellingly describes how oil company executives, environmental activists, Inupiat people, small business people, and the U.S. military boldly worked together to rescue the whales. He also tells the stories of some of the more than 150 international journalists who brought the story to the world’s attention. The rescue was followed by millions of people around the world as Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev joined the forces of their two nations to help free the whales.

The White Princess (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels #5) by Philippa Gregory

About the book ;When Henry Tudor picks up the crown of England from the mud of Bosworth field, he knows he must marry the princess of the enemy house—Elizabeth of York—to unify a country divided by war for nearly two decades.But his bride is still in love with his slain enemy, Richard III—and her mother and half of England dream of a missing heir, sent into the unknown by the White Queen. While the new monarchy can win power, it cannot win hearts in an England that plots for the triumphant return of the House of York.Henry’s greatest fear is that somewhere a prince is waiting to invade and reclaim the throne. When a young man who would be king leads his army and invades England, Elizabeth has to choose between the new husband she is coming to love and the boy who claims to be her beloved lost brother: the rose of York come home at last.

Stone Maples

by Lena Eltang

About the book ; A detective story that takes place in a fiction small town in Wales.The mysteries of the witchy pension, the cool breeze of the Irish Bay, the Welsh ancient legends, the love story ranging from passion to hate, a mysterious death, which probably was not at all…It is the book of mind-lace, whose heroes change masks and mix their feet so masterly that discovering the secrets of the past for them is as important as understanding the present meaning.

A New Cookbook (Latvian culinary heritage)

About the book ; This one is a pretty cool little book with old recipes(from 1935)that were originally in one of that time cookbooks…And It’s all written in this old Latvian(and I love it)

Hello, everyone!I hope you are having a great weekend.I’m glad to say I’m back for good!This week was very busy(lot’s of running around), so I decided to treat myself to some new stuff from my local DrugStore.I did find some awesome things so, Let’s start with all the goodies I got! 

 

rdel-young-power-hardener-koromerosito-300-300

RL de Young power hardener

Interesting fact- I have very thin nails, so having a clear nail polish with ”hardener” properties is always a good idea.Usually, I get the essence XXL nail thickener, but this time I decided to try something new.Will see how it goes.

Essence-The-Gel-Nail-Polish

The Gel nail polish

I love this range of nail polish by Essence.All the colors are so vibrant and long-lasting(I always get the nude ones).Definitely give it a go, if you haven’t already!

m_YculidhY5HHMziklQ1FXw

Gliss Kur mask Ultimate Repair intense exposure

I have already one eyeshadow from this line and I always wanted to try some lighter shades, so seeing this particular shade in the clearance basked was like Winning the lottery moment(Okay…maybe be not so dramatic, but you get the point!).Still, haven’t tried it.But from the packaging, Think I will like it.
