I watched “I Love Lucy” first season and it was AMAZING!

About the TV-Show

Cbs No GIF by Paramount+ - Find & Share on GIPHYI Love Lucy is an American television sitcom that originally aired on CBS from October 15, 1951, to May 6, 1957, with a total of 180 half-hour episodes spanning six seasons. The show starred Lucille Ball, 171 I Love Lucy Gifs - Gif Abyssher then real-life husband Desi ArnazVivian Vance, and William Frawley. It followed the life of Lucy Ricardo (Ball), a young middle-class housewife in New York City, who either concocted plans with her best friends Ethel and Fred Mertz (Vance and Frawley) to appear alongside her bandleader husband Ricky Ricardo (Arnaz) in his nightclub, or tried numerous schemes to mingle with, or be a part of show business. New trending GIF tagged eating i love lucy… | Trending GifsAfter the series ended in 1957, a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials; it ran from 1957 to 1960. It was first known as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour.I Love Lucy became the most-watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and it was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings (an accomplishment later matched only by The Andy Griffith Show in 1968 and Seinfeld in 1998).

MY THOUGHTS 

Another vintage Tv Show I am putting on my Favorites List! This is such a classic and I haven’t seen it, being that I’m from Europe. So now Thanks to technology I could watch it and It was amazing. I can totally see why it was (and still is) so popular. It’s easy to watch, funny, and has such a lovable cast. My concern with any old ‘classic” is …How racist and sexist it really is? And I can say it wasn’t that bad(just by watching the first season, can’t comment on the others yet). Yes, it has a big emphasis on the “women place” at home and “men’s place” at the workplace. But taking into the account the year and what was “expected” from people and families in particular at that time,I can’t really criticize. So overall I’m very happy with this TV show, it’s perfect for casual watching when you cook or clean. (And my boyfriend’s parrots love the opening)

I got “Oriflame “Love Nature” with Organic Tea Tree and Lime” line for Christmas

Hello, My Darlings! So for Christmas, my dear friend Alina got me this Oriflame “Love Nature” set. She knows I love the gel wash and the scrub(I have already talked about some products I have already tried here) that’s why Alina got me the whole line as a gift.

I’m so excited, I have already tried most of the products(for like 2 weeks)

Here are my thoughts!

Purifying Gel Wash with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product :

Formulated without parabens and featuring organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, this light-foaming floral-citrus scented gel wash works to instantly purify the skin while removing make-up, impurities, excess sebum, and oil.
Blemish-prone skin? Never fear, it also contains salicylic acid to help target blemishes. It’s also dermatologically-tested and non-comedogenic.
And on top of doing your skin a favor, you’ll be helping Mother Nature because its formulation is silicone-free and biodegradable!

My thoughts :

One of my favorite face wash EVER. I love how good it cleans my face , it gives a light cooling effect I totally adore. My oily skin loves it!

Mattifying Face Lotion with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product:

Created using organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, it’s a match made in heaven for oily skin. Designed for day and night use, it helps to deliver lightweight hydration and works to leave skin perfectly mattified, purified, and shine-free, while controlling excess sebum and oil. It even contains salicylic acid to target blemish-prone skin.

And, as you’d expect, it’s dermatologically-tested, non-comedogenic, paraben-free and finished with a beautifully uplifting floral-citrus scent.

My thoughts :

The first time using this face cream I didn’t like it , it felt too oily at that moment. But after a week of using it…I really like it. For now, my skin likes it, no new acne and that’s amazing. My boyfriend did try it too and he liked it , so it’s BF approved.

Purifying 2-in-1 Mask & Scrub with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product:

Designed as a convenient multi-purpose mask and scrub, it’s infused with all the goodness of organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, making it the go-to solution for a deep and meaningful cleanse. But it won’t stop there… It also works to exfoliate your skin, helps to minimize the appearance of pores, and even contains salicylic acid to target blemish-prone skin.

More good news is, it’s alcohol and paraben-free and dermatologically tested – not to mention kind to the planet because the formulation uses only natural-origin exfoliating particles and is biodegradable and silicone-free!

My thoughts :

I like this one, it’s pretty good for everyday use. Very gentle scrub, but still gets the job done. The mask gives this cooling feeling (just like the gel), which helps with acne.

Purifying Face Oil with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product :

Infused with lush organic antibacterial Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, together with salicylic acid, Love Nature Tea Tree & Lime Purifying Oil targets blemishes by helping to purify and soothe the affected area while working to tone and tighten pores.

Fresh on application, with a wonderfully light after-feel and an uplifting floral-citrus scent, the formulation is also paraben-free and dermatologically tested.

My thoughts :

This was a miss, not my favorite product. Didn’t work for me.More about why and how you can read here (Oriflame LOVE NATURE Purifying Face Oil with Organic Tea Tree & Lime- First Impression)

Purifying Toner with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

About the product : 

Featuring organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, it’s designed to remove those last traces of make-up and impurities and leave skin perfectly cleansed, toned and purified. It’ll also work to minimise the appearance of pores and even contains salicylic acid to help control blemish-prone skin.

You’ll also be pleased to hear it’s dermatologically-tested and non-comedogenic. And – as a parting kiss from Mother Nature – it’ll leave your skin with a delicate floral citrus scent. That’s purifying bliss in a bottle!

My thoughts :

This is a hit and miss for me. I like it, but it does leave my skin sticky. Doesn’t break me out, the scent is light. One of the main ingredients is Alcohol, so if you are sensitive to it, this is not for you.

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.

December Bullet Journal- yes,I’m doing it again!

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all doing? Hope this week started amazingly. So…I’m doing it again. Guess Bullet Journaling is my new hobby now. I tried Buju for the second time last month(you can find it here) and it really worked for me.

Let’s see my spreads for the month.

Disclaimer – I’m bad at art
TITLE PAGE

This month my theme was Christmas! I’m so excited about Christmas…you have no idea. So for the title page, I decided to do Christmas trees and little snowflakes.

THE SPREAD 

For the weekly spread, I decided to do minimalistic Christmas lights. I really liked how it turned out.

Christmas Gift List 

Christmas is near…and of course, planning gifts is important. How you can see I’m already writing something in those little tags.

KDRAMA-TRACKER

I did this Kdrama-tracker last month and it worked A-M-A-Z-I-N-G-L-Y! I loved keeping track of everything I watched.

Title Page

For the theme, I decided to go with Rain. I could go very patriotic for November(It’s Latvia’s independence day in November), but I’m not good at drawing so decided to go with something more…easy.

When I first saw them I thought they are made of glass or something similar, because those earrings catch the light very beautifully. But no…it’s the good old plastic and I’m not mad about it. The quality is okay, are much lighter than they look and that’s amazing! Overall great earrings for the price.

So I used this one for around a month ,
so those are my thoughts and opinions 

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
TEXTURE AND QUALITY

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.

It’s around 4/6 euro in Latvia. So very affordable.

My review of the Lemon palette by Beauty Glaze

Beauty Glazed Official Aliexpress store

Packaging

It’s nice, sturdy, sleek and really pretty! It has a magnetic closure and that’s amazing. It’s cardboard box,very generic in that sense

eyeshadow for blog

Texture and Quality

The matt shades are decent, but the shimmery ones are the bomb! This palette has the same problem the “Lemon” one has, the shimmery shades don’t work well with synthetic brushes, use your fingers for the best color payoff. I don’t use an eyeshadow primer, and those shadows stay on for 10 h straight,but…the downside the blue shades do stain.

Swatches

There are 3 matt shades and 6 shimmery ones! Here are swatches without a primer and put on with a finger.

 Pros  

  • Great quality
  • Easy to blend
  • Cheap
  • Travel-friendly
  • No scent

Cons

  • A little bit powdery
  • Can’t get it in the drugstore
