I hope all of you, my american followers, had a great Thanksgiving! and will have even better shopping today. I'm not really into the black friday shopping, but I know many people are and I can understand why: CAUSE IT'S EXCITING!!!( something different)
My Thanksgiving went great! I helped a lot to prepare food, then I ate too much, and then I was barely able to breath or walk or do any sort of activities that involved moving my body. Lol. Gotta love holidays!!!

I love this picture! everyone was so excited to see the turkey!!! lol

you remeber my baby Bella?!

OMG! my hair was really making me annoyed today, because every time it needs to be perfect - it's not! So, please ignore all those little flyaways around my forehead! Can't stand them!!!!

And last but not least, I would like to thank for my life, and all the great people in it! I love you all! I would also like to thank all my followers, who daily leave me sweet and helpful comments! You make me so happy! I don't think you know how happy you make me! And for that I thank you!

Lanvin for H&M. Random post.

I'm so disappointed that I couldn't buy anything from Lanvin for H&M collection. And my reason is really lame too: I was working! I'm supposed to work only one Saturday a month, and it turned out to be this Saturday! I was really upset and still am, I guess. So, I'm placing some bids on eBay and crossing my fingers to win. And you know how eBay overpriced every single piece from this collection. It's insane, but I am determined to get at least one of the items that I want. Let's hope for the best.
On the other note, have you guys seen the newest Harry Potter film, yet? I haven't. It's been sold out for the past two days in my local theatre. I'm sort of planning to see it tomorrow, but not sure, cause along with seeing HP, I have other plans. So, we shall see.
Anyway, this was just a little ramble. Outfit of the day post tomorrow, so feel free to stop by;)

Lush Holiday 2010 or not really...

I would like to start this post with the fact that I love Lush! But, the most favorite things for me from Lush are its bath bubble bars. I love the kind of bubbles it gives me and I seriously, CANNOT GET ENOUGH! So, if you have a Lush store/counter near you and a bath tub, I strongly recommend you to get at least one of those and try it out. You will love it!
When I was in AC, I stopped by their lovely store and picked up few products. So far I used up 2 of them and of course: I loved it!

"Too excited to sleep? Have a soak with one of these!Sink into the skin softening water (thanks to the Irish moss powder we pop in there) and lie back in clouds of twinkling foam. You'll be sure to have very sweet dreams indeed."
"Vanilla cream bubble bath with iridescent pink sparkles puts you in the mood to shine"

"Evoke happy thoughts with bergamot and citrus"
I used the whole thing and the smell and softness of my skin lasted for hours.
"Whip your clothes off for this ultra sexy Bath Bomb of seduction!Soya milk makes the water beautifully milky, which softens your entire body as you enjoy a long, hot soak"
"Dreamy lavender and ovaltine froth for sweet dreams.Not only does lavender oil smell absolutely gorgeous, it's also known for its ability to help calm, relax and aid restful sleep."
This was amazing! It made cracking noises, had moisturizing beads with a little bit of shimmer, and changed the color of water from hot pink to light blue.

Have you tried Lush? And what is your recommended product from them?

November 13, 2010

a very late "monthly favorites" post. October favorites.

I know I'm really late with the October favorites, but the month of October was great and I had some really cool new findings to share with you.
Make Up:
1. Clinique Perfectly real compact make up powder, which I used on the days when I was in the rush and didn't have enough time to put on liquid foundation.
2. Lancome Teint Idole liquid foundation. I cannot rave enough about this foundation. I just love it and the matte finish that it gives me. I have oily skin and this foundation does not break me out. Love, love, love:)
3. Revlon Prim Rose lipstick. I bought this lipstick before everyone on youtube started talking about it and has been sold out in my local Target since then. I have to say that this is a perfect fall pink. Since I've used up my MAC Hue, I've been using Prim Rose. And the quality as well as the color are really nice.
4. Maybelline Mineral Power natural perfecting concealer. I cannot say that this is the best concealer ever, because I've never really used a concealer, but I do like this one, it does the job. And I used it every day in the month of October. I am looking out for other concealers to try out, please send your preferences my way!
4. Lancome Cappucine Blush Subtil. Now, this is a real discovery for me this month. I freaking love the color of this blush. I had this free sample for years now and never opened it, until now. I love it so much, that I went to Macy's and purchased a full size Cappucine blush. It looks very similar to MAC's Gingerly, which I yet have to try.
5. Aerie navy blue eye pencil. The color is very nice and I do like navy color, so this had to be on my favorites list:)
Face Cleansing:
1. YES!!! I finally gave in and purchased Clarisonic! I bought the smaller version - Mia, just because the bigger one, looked huge! I of course used my Sephora 20% off coupon on this and saved $30!!! WOOHOO!!! I have to say that I really, truly love this thing! It says that it will reduce the size of your pore and it will! Recommend!
2. Yes To Cucumbers cleansing towelettes. This is another great finding of this month. In this picture it's actually my 2nd pack. I love it. I use it to remove my make up, right before I'm about to use Clarisonic Mia. I still use the Lancome eye makeup remover for my eyes, though. So, this product is only good for face in my opinion. Try it!!!
3. Tea Tree Water facial toner. This product is great for oily skin. It removes oil very well and leaves face matte and fresh. It's $20 for the big bottle and I've used it almost every day before I go to sleep. It has a very natural smell, but I think it also helped out to control my T zone craziness.

1. Tresemme Dry shampoo. Ok, I hated this product 3 months ago, but now I love it. It is always good to read the instructions before use. You need to shake this spray very well before spraying it onto your hair. It works like magic on that second day hair and smells way better than Oscar Blandi pronto Dry shampoo.
2. Neutrogena anti-residue formula shampoo. It's always nice to rid your hair of build up. It feels better to the touch and looks healthier. I use this product only once a week. But it's proven to me to do the job that it claims to do!
3. Evolution of Smooth shave cream wet or dry. I tried many shaving creams that are good to use on dry skin, but this one blew my mind. Great smell and is very gentle even on sensitive skin. Can be found in Target for $4.
4. Viva La Juicy parfume! I am in love with this scent! I've gotten so many compliments on it too, that I've lost count. And now at my work we all wear this parfume. I think we are obsessed!

Hair styling tool of the month:
One and only GHD! The best flat iron that I have ever tried for so many reasons! And how do you like my flat iron pouch?! Got it at TJmaxx for $5. It's so cute!!!

Ok, I think I'm done now. I know this post is very long, but I couldn't make it any shorter than it is. I tried.
Please share your favorites for the month of October
Ciao, Olya

Outfit of the day. Black and brown mix.

Since I'm still dealing with my personal drama I haven't felt like dressing up for the past week. I guess tonight was pretty much the most dressed up I have been this whole week. No make up either, except for some mascara.
My parents came to see me today with my brother, so we had some dinner out and relaxed at home. I also worked today, which is something I enjoyed.

I wore: Leather jacket from Victoria's Secret dot come, scraf from H&M, Bag from Jimmy Choo for H&M, dress from Madewell, and shoes were bought by my mother in Ukraine, last winter and I love them!!!
I'm starting to feel like Christmas is coming soon! Is your holiday spirit cheared up too?
till next time...

Halloween. Atlantic City.

Hi guys! So, it's been a while. One week, which felt like forever! I missed you so much, but there were some things going on in my life that weren't too good. Just drama. Anyway. I feel bad posting this so late, but I still want to show you my Halloween weekend, since it was really cool for me! I had the best time and wished that it was longer.
Thanks to your votes, I picked the costume of a masquerade and couldn't be happier with this choice. SO, thank you, my friends:)

My Moschino belt had its first debut over that weekend! I love this belt:)


Overload of pictures, I know.

I hope all of you had a fun and safe Halloween celebration!

XOXO, Olya
