My morning skincare routine.

Hello everyone!
I really enjoy reading other bloggers skincare routines, to find out what products they are using and what works for them. Very often I purchase cosmetics because I read that it worked for someone I can relate to.
So I thought I am going to share with you products I am using at the moment. Please note that they are mainly budget products and non of them are my holy grain as I am still looking for the perfect skincare set and still testing what is right for me. But at the moment they work just fine for me and don't break me out or make my skin looking worse.
For reference, my skin is combination with an oily T-zone and normal on cheeks, it has quite large pores. Nowadays I don't normally get breakouts but do suffer with blackheads.
 So these are the characters of this chapter:)

My current fragrances.

Hello everyone!
I don't own a big collection of different perfumes, normally I have and use 2, 3 during a period of time, then I purchase a new one when one is finished. But I DO love having them and without spritzing any kind of fragrance on my skin I feel kind of naked.
Scents for me are part of creating memories process and smelling perfume I used in past can instantly take me back to my wedding day, time when I was pregnant, holidays etc.
I like trying new perfumes but also frequently come back to my old favourites.
And this is what I've been using for the last few months.

What's on my nails? #1

Hello everyone!
I don't know about you but I love wearing polish on my nails, I feel and look instantly better and groomed if my nails are done.
With two small children and plenty of housework my beautifully painted nails chip within couple of days but it doesn't stop me from doing my manicure every week.
Usually on Fridays I find the time and do my nails so they look good for the weekend.
I like using dark nail polishes this time of the year but yesterday I fancied something different. With some sunshine outside and spring coming ( hopefully soon!) I chose this pretty pastel pink with silver glitter. It's Revlon in Popular.

This is a very pale pink with some tiny and some hexagonal bigger pieces of silver glitter. It applies easily and the glitter spreads out well. You have to make a bit manoeuver with some of the larger glitters around so they aren't bunched on in one spot but it's not a big deal. It's a lovely subtle nail polish without being 'too much in the face' sparkle. It looks beautiful in the sun. I applied two coats and it was enough opaque for me. It dries quite fast but, if you're like me, you might prefer to apply a top coat to speed things up and keep the larger pieces of glitter in place. Also as it's such a pale shade is more forgiving to some little chips and tip wear ( big plus for me).
Do you like this nail polish? What's your favourite shade at the moment?
Kind regards

Love Me Beauty Box - February Edition

So firstly, hello and welcome to my little corner of the internet!
As it's my first blog post I thought it would be a good idea to share with you my thoughts and first impressions of this month Love Me Beauty Box
Just recently discovered this beauty box and decided to subscribe straightaway as I like the idea of choosing your box from three menus available every month, so it's less likely you end up with products absolutely useless for you.
This month in the box were 4 products you could choose yourself and one extra mystery product which was supposed to be 'a hero' product from previous boxes. I like the idea of a little surprise there.
So let me show you contents of this lovely box.
