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.

“Extraordinary You”- disappointed me

ABOUT THE DRAMA :

extra kdramaWhat would you do if you found out that you were in fact a character in a comic? And an extra character on top of that? Change the course of the story, obviously!

Eun Danoh is a 17 year old high-school student from a wealthy family who suffers from a lifelong heart condition that inevitably means she will not live past her teenage years. However, when Danoh realizes she is experiencing long gaps in her memory as well, she comes into the unhappy inheritance of another fact in her life: she is a character in a Korean webtoon and all of her actions are predetermined by the artist who draws her. To make matters worse, she discovers she is only a supporting character in the cast. With her newfound understanding of the world she inhabits, she is determined to find true love in her own plot-line and circumvent the author’s plans for her character by utilizing the flashes of storyboard she alone is able to see.

Country: Korean

Status: Completed

Released: 2019

Genre: Comedy; Fantasy; Friendship; Romance; School; Youth;

 

MY THOUGHTS 

PLOT

plotIt’s such a unique idea, a comic book character that finds out she is in a comic book?! That’s such a cool thing. The first 8 episodes were amazing, I loved every second of it, though maybe it’s my new Goblin?! …but after those episodes, it started to drag. Like there was so much going on, but it felt so flat…I don’t know why. So disappointing…

It’s 3 stars out of 5 stars for me !

 

 

THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN OUR MAIN COUPLE(S)?

coupleUnpopular opinion – I didn’t like any of the Love interests. For me, it was more a self-journey and you really didn’t need a love interest in this one. So we have the Haru the character who isn’t in the main story andcouple 2 Eun Danoh’s fiance in the comics Baek Kyung. There was chemistry between this love triangle,I just personally didn’t care about it.

 

HOW IT ENDS

(mild spoilers)

It was an open-ended ending, with a bittersweet feeling.  I’m okay with it, I kind of saw it coming.

5 Things I Love About Autumn-Blogtober day 18

Rainy Days 

9VHBc7N

I love watching the rain! There is something relaxing in watching how the raindrops touch the ground. It’s so relaxing, and what can be better than curling up on a rainy day with a hot cup of tea and a good book?! Nothing!

Leaves turning different colors

ce080ee36cf2107e24972196103f58bd

Leaves turning different colors was and still is a pretty magical thing for me. It’s so beautiful, all the reds, yellows, and dark greens colors everywhere. Always puts me in the autumn mood.

Colder weather  

9TFoHPo

Yes, you read it right! I love colder weather(just not when it goes down to -2 and lower). My perfect temperature outside is +10, you can layer , but still feel comfortable.

My Birthday 

vs0plLv

I was born in September, so autumn for me is partaaaayyyy time! That means lots of cake, chocolate and birthday shopping. It’s a great time for me to reflect on my life, where I’m going and what I want.

Latvian independence day 

November-18-Latvian-Independence-Day

Independence day is one of my favorite holidays. It’s such an empowering time where we celebrate independence and remember what’s really important(and of course concerts, yummy food, and fireworks)

tenor (2)

I’m 24! That’s so crazy for me, I’m 24…officialy. Now I’m closer to 30 then to 16, and that’s just mind-blowing to me. Especially now all my classmates are getting married, having children, and I’m very happy for them but on the other side, it’s hard when you still don’t know what you want from life. But okay with that, let’s talk about some things I learned in the past year!ede0755338e6a4e41de86c09614db4f9_decorative-underline-clipart-clipartfest-drawing-art-_370-370

5 things I learned in the past year
  • Life will go on without you, whatever you want it or not.
  • Don’t stop learning. New language, a music instrument, painting….whatever it is, just don’t stop learning!
  • Do what makes you happy!
  • Don’t forget about skincare , you in the future will say thank you.
  • Invest in yourself!I’m not only talking money but time too, just take care of yourself.
Be the Queen(or King) that you are!

Treating myself – Makeup haul!

Hello my Darlins, And Hello My name is Anna if you are new here. How are you? Do you feel the spring already? It’s getting warmer here in Latvia and I don’t know if I’m ready for spring…I still miss Christmas, am I the only one? Today I want to talk about some goodies I got overtime (as a gift from my dear friends on the International women’s day or something I got for myself) . Let’s dive into it!

All the goodies I got!

KODAK Digital Still Camera

 

Face

KODAK Digital Still Camera

prime+ studio mattifying + pore minimizing primer

I like this primer, it’s light and works well for me. It’s not perfect, but for the money, it’s pretty great. If you have oily skin I would recommend you to try it.

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Insta perfect liquid make up

Getting my second bottle of this ! It does look small, but it last a long time and a little bit go a long way. Right now in the winter and colder months, I’m enjoying this foundation, will see if anything changes in summer.

KODAK Digital Still Camera

all about matt! fixing compact powder

I’m living for this powder, it’s one of my favorites.It keeps my face matt for good 8h,for the price I’m very happy.

Lips

KODAK Digital Still Camera

RdeL YoungCrazy Matt’n’Lasting Lipgloss 02 trendsetter

I have this lipgloss already but in a different color, and it’s one of the most used ones I have. I like the formula, so I got another color to try out. Will see how I like it!

KODAK Digital Still Camera

essence Vibrant Shock Lip Paint 04 twisted Sister

I have a blog post about it already up(you can read it here).

Other Products

NYX hot singles eye shadow poolside

I got this one as a gift from a friend . I haven’t tried anything from NYX, so it was a nice surprise. I like the quality, will see how it performs on the eyes. Have you tried eyeshadows from this range? What do you think about them? Write it down below.

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Douglas hair protein repair intensive mask

This one was a gift from another dear friend. I have tried this hair mask in the past, and I can say it’s perfect for very damaged hair. It’s very Nourishing, so if you have oily hair it’s not for you.

Tea-Time-Lemon-Hand-Cream_530x

Tea Time Lemon Hand Cream

Another gift from a friend(see? I have amazing friends). I’m so happy that Korean makeup and skincare is showing up in our drugstores, so trying something new is exciting! I really like this hand cream, it doesn’t leave an oily feeling after applying, the only thing I don’t like its smell… I have lots of cleaning supplies with a lemon scent, and guys…it’s the same as this cream. The exact same scent, and that’s a shame. Overall it’s good,just the scent is awful(for me).

Love oh love…..”The Love Tag”

Photo by Mandy von Stahl on Unsplash

20190106_142911_500Good Day My Darlings! How are you all today? It’s 14 February, the Valentines day. As a single girl, Valentine’s day can be a little bit depressive . Seeing all those happy couples everywhere can be hard, And Today it’s my parent’s wedding anniversary(even though they are divorced it’s still a date we remember and “celebrate” in a way because without it there would be no me or my brother). Because I don’t have any big plans today I decided to do a tag…a love one. Let’s dive into it!

Questions:

1. Do you believe in love at first sight?

Yes and no. Don’t think I would ever fell in love at a first sight (I’m not that kind of person). But it could happen to someone else, I do believe that it happens very rear and most people mix up lust and love quite a lot.

tumblr_mi901gmqmq1qb0u5go1_r1_500

2. What is your favorite love quote?

“I would love you in any shape, in any world, with any past. Never doubt that “-Claudia Gray, A Thousand Pieces of You

giphy

3. Should we look for love, wait for love, or forget about love till it happens?

I think you should do what feels right for you. There is no right or wrong way when it comes to love.

4. Does age matter in love?

If both parts are consensual adults then no.

c683c0bda881e2b8165a9af7ec8eaf415ce8d3995dfbb00116cbb9a62397c581

5. How do you not get jaded by love?

I don’t know….for reals.

6. Describe what love is to you.

Love for me is people who care about me and I care about them.

7. Have you ever been in love?

Yup,I have…but just once .

tenor (1)

8. What’s the difference between being in love with someone and having a crush?

For me, it’s the way I view a person. If it’s just a crush I’m looking more at the outside (Like manners and looks), but when I’m in love I’m more interested in what’s inside.

giphy (1)

9. What is your love language?

Words of Affirmation and Receiving Gifts(and this is the way I show my love, by giving gifts  )

nov14-lovelanguages

10. Do looks matter in love?
