Fall Outfit of the Day / Trip to Koper

ENG 


About a week ago I went on a trip to Koper, a small and lovely seaside city. Even though it was foggy and cold all day long I still had so much fun exploring the city. If you ever come to Slovenia, you definitely have to visit Koper! Regarding the outfit: I was wearing my favourite robe coat from Zara that I featured before in my other posts. I paired it with a black Topshop shirt with bell sleeves, ripped jeans and backpack also from Topshop, H&M scarf and Fedora hat and Pittarello Chelsea Boots. It was a perfect outfit for this trip: very comfortable and kept me warm as well!
Have a great start of the week! 

SLO 

Prejšnji teden sem obiskala Koper in čeprav je bil meglen in izredno mrzel dan, sem vseeno zelo uživala. Današnji outfit sestavljajo plašč iz Zare, ki sem ga nosila že v prejšnjh objavah, Topshop črna srajca z rokavi na zvonec, črne hlače in nahrbtnik prav tako iz Topshopa, H&M Fedora klobuk in šal ter Pitarello Chelsea škornji. Popolna izbira za ta izlet: izredno udoben in topel outfit!
Želim vam lep teden!

Fall Outfit of the Day / Yellow Part II.

ENG
Good Morning! 

It's already the end of the week and even though it has been a busy one, it has gone by way too quickly. We are already at the end of the month and I can't wait for the December to start. As I mentioned in my yesterday's post there will be a big project reveal on Wednesday so stay tuned! 
Today's post features my favourite yellow sweater from Topshop in another fall outfit of the day. I paired it with mom jeans also from Topshop, Adidas Stan Smith Trainers and Zara Necklace and Sunglasses. I absolutely love this simple, everyday outfit. 
Hope you all have a great weekend and see you next week! 

SLO
Dobro jutro!

Spet smo pri koncu tedna in čeprav je bil ta izredno delaven, je zares prehitro minil. Kot sem omenila že v včerajšnji objavi, bom v sredo predstavila nov zanimiv projekt, tako da bodite pozorni na sredino objavo! Današnji outfit sestavljajo moj najljubši jesenski pulover iz Topshopa, ki sem ga kombinirala s kavbojkami prav tako iz Topshopa, Adidas Stan Smith supergami in veržico iz Zare. Preprost jesenski outfit! 
Želim vam lep vikend!

UPDATES

Recently I was looking through some of my old posts and came across "Dear Future Me" that I had written last December as part of my 10 "New Year's Resolutions" that I wanted to achieve in 2015. Sadly, not all of them came true (yet), but here are some updates I prepared for you. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and get comfortable to read some new updates:

1. Move to London and start studies at University of the Arts.
In September I decided not to move to London because of some difficult circumstances. I was determined to change something about the situation and make the most out of it. I completely renovated and relaunched my blog and devoted all my attention to it.
2. Visit a place you have never been to before.
I travelled a lot in the past year - to many different places in Slovenia and abroad. And I of course re-visited London, which I do every year.
3. Start saving more money.
I started working at a summer, which is now a part-time job, so I did manage to save up some money. Which I will now apparently spend all on presents for my friends and family :)
4. Write on this blog more often.
I absolutely did. I write every single weekday since the 1st of October and I'm really happy that everything is still going great. I really enjoying managing/writing this blog and I wouldn't change it for anything.
5. Learn to unapologetically say no.
My problem with others is that I always say yes to everything, even though I have other more important things to do. I managed to do that. Sometimes. And I'm glad I did, because I have more time to spend on things that I absolutely love to do and are important to me.
6. Read more.
So happy I wrote this one, because I actually did read more in 2015 and I even wrote a post about 10 books to read this fall. So go check that out!
7. Pick up your camera more often. Use Instagram more.
I do this all the time now - not only with my blog pictures but also with Instagram. I try to use Instagram every single day and I love it, because I can capture different random moments that I otherwise wouldn't remember.
8. Write more, write about everything.
See number 4.
9. Keep your skin moisturised.
I definitely started to look after my skin much better than last year. My skin has been very clear and fresh looking for the past few months so I'm very happy with my skincare routine. I finally managed to find what works best for me and my skin type.
10. Be patient. Be thankful.
This is an advice I would've give to anyone to follow every single day because it's something we should all be aware of. This will definitely stay on my list even in 2016!

ONE MORE UPDATE: Me and Klemen just finished working on a secret project that will be revealed next Wednesday. I'm so excited for all of you to finally see it, so stay tuned!

Christmas Wishlist / Gift Guide


Christmas is literally only a month away and now it's time to start thinking about different gift ideas for your friends and family. I decided to prepare a collage just to give you some gift inspiration. It includes my favourite products I love to give as well as receive in the gifting season.

1. Homeware is something that is very personal to every individual's taste so you need to know their personality quite well, when buying specific items. But it's a lovely present to give - it looks expensive, thoughtful and is also very useful. Interior design and homeware products have become very popular and diverse in the last couple of years. So the array of products is endless. This year there are some trends that you may have seen all over Instagram and Pinterest: rose gold and marble items and everything with the Scandinavian feel to it - minimalist, black, white and grey products. I always opt for the notebooks, coffee cups/mugs, books, clocks, vases, etc.
2. Candles are another great gift because they both look and smell great. When in doubt always go for a nice candle and you'll be good to go. If you need something affordable but still nice I recommend you to go have a look at Primark candles - they all look and smell great and have very afforardble prices. If you want to have something more expensive, I would go for the Yankee Candles - they're timeless and well-known. However, if you want the pure luxury, go for the amazing Diptyque or Jo Malone candles - very expensive and definitely a splurge item, but look absolutely beautiful. 
3. Perfumes are the most universal gift you can get. I especially love Tom Ford Noir or Chanel Coco Noir because they have gorgeous black&gold luxurious packing and smell divine. These two perfumes will give your gift a sense of luxury and sophistication. If you want a more "affordable" gift there are many different perfumes to choose from - Lancome, Marc Jacobs, Chloe, etc. You just need to know in which direction you want to go regarding the scent - floral, sweet, fresh, woody, citrus, etc. You can find out more about that on a variety of websites, which have guides to help you choose the perfect scent. 

Hope this gives you some inspiration for your Christmas gifts. Have a great day and see you tomorrow!

New in Beauty / Haul

ENG 

I finally decided to pay a visit to the drugstore after a few weeks of my "wallet rehab" - I just spend way to much money on clothes and beauty products. But because I really did work hard for a couple of months now I decided to "splurge" on some items. I wanted Lancome La Vie Est Belle perfume for ages and when I saw it on sale I had no choice but to buy it. It smells so sweet and feminine and I absolutely love it! 
I repurchased my "holy-grail" eyeliner (Super Liner) and concealer/highlighter (La Touche Magique) from L'oreal, eyebrow pencil from Anastasia Beverly Hills, Brow Wiz and Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. These are all the products I have used before and absolutely love. 
I also bought Maybelline Colour Tattoo creamy matte eyeshadow in Creme de Nude, which is supposed to be the best dupe for Mac Paint Pot in Soft Ochre. I use it as an eyeshadow primer. I love the creamy consistency and the pigmentation it has at a very affordable price. I will definitely repurchase it. 
I also enjoyed using the L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper in transparent because it doesn't make my eyebrows feel too crispy or harsh yet still keeps them in place. It definitely replaced my Maybelline Clear Brow Gel. I am very happy with the purchase I made because I absolutely love all of these products. 

What are some of your current beauty favourites? Let me know in the comments below. 

SLO 

Po dolgem času brez nakupovanja, saj sem v preteklih tednih zapravila čisto preveč za oblačila in kozmetiko, sem se končno odločila, da obiščem nekaj trgovin in nakupim izdelke, ki sem si jih že dolgo želela ali pa zares ponovno potrebovala. Ko sem opazila, da je Lancome La Vie Est Belle parfum v akciji, sem ga seveda morala kupiti, saj sem si ga že zelo dolgo želela preizkusiti. Je popolna kombinacija sladkega a obenem izredno ženstvenega vonja. 
Ponovno sem kupila svoje najljubše, "holy-grail" izdelke, ki so del moje vsakodnevne rutine: L'Oreal True Match La Touche magique "highlighter" in Super Liner tekoče črtalo za oči, Anastasia Beverly Hills svinčnik za obrvi Brow Wiz in trenutno najljubšo maskaro Maybelline Lash  Sensational
Odločila sem se, da bom preizkusila tudi nekaj novih izdelkov: Maybelline Colour Tattoo Creamy Mattes v odtenku Creme de Nude, ki naj bi bil popolna replika oboževanega Mac Paint Pot-a Soft Ocher. Omogoča izredno kremast in pigmentiran nanos barve. Sama ga najraje uporabljam kot osnovno barvo, t.i. "primer" za kasnejši nanos senčil. Je odličen produkt za tako ugodno ceno. 
Prav tako sem preizkuila L'Oreal gel za obrvi, ki je nadomestil moj prejšnji Maybelline Clear Brow Gel - obrvi uredi, da ostanejo na mestu in jih obenem ne nardi preveč "trde". 
Zares sem zadovoljna s svojim nakupom, saj me prav noben izdelek ni razočaral. 

Vaše trenutne najljubše izdelke pa napišite spodaj v komentarje!

Fall Outfit of the Day / RED

ENG

Good Morning! 

I hope you all had a great weekend. It really has been an exciting one for me. The weather has changed so much and it feels just like winter now. We had our first snow in Ljubljana on Saturday and it's been very cold the past few days. Nevertheless I decided to post one of my favourite and most fun-to-make posts since the launch in October, which still has that summer to fall transition vibe even though we shot it just last week. I am wearing my favourite fall lipstick - the very adored Rimmel Kate Moss 107, paired with some basic black trousers from H&M, black shirt from Topshop and a bomber jacket from Zara, which I haven't worn in ages. This lipstick is my favourite fall/winter shade and it's great to be using it again this time of the year. 
Have a great start of the week! 


SLO

Dobro jutro!

Upam, da ste uživali ta vikend, saj je bil res nekaj posebnega. V soboto nas je vse presenetil sneg in sedaj že res lahko občutimo zimo. Kljub temu sem se odločila, da z vami danes delim outfit, ki sem ga posnela prejšnji teden, čeprav izgleda zelo pozno poletni/jesenski. Sestavljen je iz klasičnih črnih hlač iz H&M, srajce iz Topshopa, "bomber" jakne iz Zare, ki je že zares dolgo nisem nosila ter moje najljubše temno rdeče šminke, ki jo prav tako obužujejo vse beauty blogerke - Rimmel Kate Moss v odtenku 107. Je moja najljubša jesenska/zimska šminka in sem res vesela, da jo lahko končno začnem ponovno nositi. 
Želim vam lep začetek tedna!

Good Morning! 

It's finally Friday and I just can't wait for the weekend to finally start. Today I prepared another outfit post for you featuring my Zara Suede Waistcoat, Topshop Black Blouse and Ripped jeans paired with an H&M scarf and my favourite Chelsea boots. It's definitely my favourite outfit that I wore this week. 
Hope you'll have a great weekend and see you on Monday with another post!

My Current Wishlist / From Fall to Winter

ENG
Good Morning!

About a week ago I posted some tips about shopping on a budget, while still following the latest trends, which had a lovely response from all of you. That is why I decided that I would for this week's wishlist give you two very affordable options, a more monochrome one and a more colourful version. All items are from SheIn (Sheinside), because they offer a variety of trendy clothes at very affordable and budget-friendly prices. I found their items on the Polyvore site, which I mentioned in my previous post, because I do my collages on their site. So here are all the items that are on my fall, slowly transitioning to winter, wishlist.

SLO
Dobro jutro!

Prejšnji teden sem objavila nekaj nasvetov in kolažev, kako najlažje in najučinkoviteje nakupovati po izredno ugodnih cenah. Ker je bila objava res dobro sprejeta, sem se odločila, da za današnjo "wishlisto" objavim kolaž izredno ugodnih modnih kosov, ki sem jih izbrala na spletni strani SheIn (Sheinside), saj ponujajo pestro izbiro ugodnih ter obenem trendovskih oblačil. Spletno stran sem našla na Polyvore, kjer sestavljam vse moje kolaže. Pripravila sem dva različna kolaža za jesen/zimo: prvega bolj monokromnega in drugega bolj barvitega, da tako zajamem več različnih okusov hkrati.






Which is your favourite item? Let me know in the comments below.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh

ENG

This is my most recent perfume purchase. Even though Daisy is more of a spring / summer scent, I finally decided to buy it. I had this perfume as a sample and had to go out and buy a full size bottle. I love this fragrance and wear it pretty much every day (as you may notice from the picture). It has such a wonderful scent, and there is something so classy and unexpected about it. It's the perfect amount of sweet and floral, but subtle enough no to overpower. Just perfect for me. I also the packaging, which is absolutely gorgeous with a gold top covered in six soft-to-the-touch daisies with petals in white, pink and yellow. The only downside to this perfume is that it wears off quite quickly for the price it has - it is quite expensive (92 $ on Sephora Website and around 72 eur in our drugstores). This is one of my favourite perfumes and if you like floral and sweet scents I would fully recommend! 

SLO

To je moj najnovejši "beauty" nakup - Marc Jacobs Daisy parfum. Čeprav velja za bolj pomladno / poletno dišavo, sem se vseeno odločila, da ga kupim, saj sem tester popolnoma izpraznila in bila popolnoma navdušena nad dišavo. Parfum uporabljam prav vsak dan, kot je lahko razvidno iz slike spodaj. Ima zares čudovit, rahlo sladek in cvetličen vonj, ki pa definitivno ni premočen. Je res popolna dišava zame. Verjetno je moj najljubši del prav steklenička z zlatim pokrovom pokritim z belimi, roza in rumenimi marjeticami. Edina slaba stran tega parfuma pa je, da ni tako dolgo obstojen kot ostali parfumi, čeprav ima precej visoko ceno (okrog 72 eur). Zame je še vedno odličen in vam z veseljem priporočam, da ga tudi same preizkusite!

20 (RANDOM) FACTS ABOUT ME

Good Morning! Over the weekend I searched through some of my past posts and realised, I haven't posted anything really personal about me in a while. I feel like I don't really share a lot of personal things with you and that you don't really get to know me that well from only reading my beauty / fashion posts. That's why I decided to write 20 (random) facts you may not know about me.

Hope you enjoy!

1. I'm a Leo. This doesn't really mean anything to me, but you can see some character traits like my stubbornness and a need to control everything. 
2. My natural hair colour is light, ashy brown. I dyed it 3 or 4 years ago, and I love the colour I have right now, even though there were some mishaps along the way. 
3. I'm 5'5". Even though I sometimes appear shorter. 
4. I'm a coffee and tea addict. I can't choose because I love them both equally. 
5. My favourite number is 7. I was born on 7th August. So you do the math.
6. I absolutely hate words like goals and squad. They've been used way too often over the past year so I think it's now time to finally stop. 
7. I hate liars. And rude people. 
8. I love to be organised. I like lists. And itineraries. And planning. And crossing off things from my lists. So you see I can be really spontaneous. 
9. My two favourite shows of all time are Friends and Project Runway (but I pretty much binge watched Gossip Girl, How to Get Away with Murder, Gilmore Girls, Scandal, Grey's Anatomy, etc.) 
10. I don't have a favourite actor or movie - there's just too many to choose from. 
11. I love new challenges, starts and renovations. I always love a fresh start and I think I probably do it at least once a year with a variety of things. 
12. I'm obsessed with black, white and grey. If you haven't figured out that by now. 
13. I am really impatient. I want things to be done immediately, which can be both a positive as well as a negative feature. 
14. My favourite day of the week is Thursday. It's a random day, I know, but I love the feeling that the weekend is just around the corner. Fridays are overrated, in my opinion. 
15. I wear contacts / glasses because I have the worst vision ever. 
16. I hardly ever wear earrings. I just find them uncomfortable. So you know that it's a special occasion if I wear them. 
17. The next destination I want to visit is New York. But my favourite city of all time is London. 
18. I spend way too much money on clothes. 
19. My favourite scent is either Si by Giorgio Armani or Black Opium by YSL. 
20. I absolutely love the city life and would never change it for anything else.  


Tell me a (random) fact about you in the comments below. I would love to get to know you better!

Fall Outfit of the Day / Zara Robe Coat Part II

ENG

My first feature article was posted over the weekend and I was really happy when I saw the final result. It's a really memorable moment for me because it's my first ever blog feature. I'm absolutely elated because it shows that all my hard work really started to pay off and my blog started to get some recognition. I absolutely love to share my ideas, thoughts and pictures with you. And it makes me really happy when you comment and share your posts with me. My blog is a representation of who I am and what I love to do. The topic of the article was my favourite piece for the autumn and I decided to feature my favourite Zara Robe Coat. And because I had such a lovely response from all of you I decided to make a Part II post. Again this post features my favourite oversized, camel robe coat from Zara that I purchased last December. I also aded a classic white shirt, black pants and sunglasses all (unwittingly) from Zara, my new Pittarello Chelsea boots and my favourite, very classic Daniel Wellington watch.

SLO 

Konec tedna je bil moj blog prvič predstavljen v članku na spletnem portalu Siol. Čeprav gre za običajno prakso v svetu modnih blogerjev, je bil to zame zelo pomemben dogodek, saj sem prvič dobila potrditev domače medijske javnosti, da ustvarjam kvalitetno vsebino in sooblikujem slovenski modni prostor. Vesela sem, da je Blush Blog končno postal znan širšemu krogu ljudi in da se je moj trud malce poplačal. Zares uživam v bloganju in objavljanju svojih misli, idej, izdelkov in outfitov. Prav tako sem vesela vsakega vašega odziva - komentarja, deljenja vaših blogov in objav. Blog je zame odlična platforma, na kateri lahko pokažem svojo osebnost in stvari, ki jih rada počnem.
V omenjenem članku sem predstavila svoj najljubši kos letošnje jeseni. Izbrala sem Zarin "Robe" plašč, saj spominja na haljo, predvsem ko ga zavežemo s pasom. Je klasičen, a hkrati izstopajoč bež plašč, ki se lepo sklada z mojo minimalistično estetiko, zato ga neprestano nosim. Ker je bil odziv res neverjeten in izredno pozitiven, sem se odločila, da z vami delim še drugi del objave. Današnji outfit je (nenamenoma) skoraj v celoti iz Zare, v kombinaciji z novimi Pittarello Chelsea škornji in mojo najljubšo Daniel Wellington uro.

All in Black / My Uniform

ENG

If you have been following me for a while now, you know that an all black outfit is my signature look. Or as I would say, my uniform. You always look great and put together in a black outfit without much effort. It's also a great option when you're running late or if you don't know what to wear that day. You'll always look chic and timeless in an all black outfit. I decide to pair my Guess by Marciano pencil skirt, which I absolutely adore, with an interesting, asymmetric long black shirt from Zara - it opens in the front, while the back is completely covered. I topped it off with a Zara leather jacket. For accessories I decided to go for a H&M beanie, because it keeps you warm, while still looking stylish, my Asos sunglasses, Adidas Stan Smith trainers, new Herschel backpack and my favourite watch from Daniel Wellington.

SLO 

Če že nekaj časa spremljate moj blog, potem veste, da je moj prepoznavni znak popolnoma črn outfit. Temu sama pravim kar moja uniforma, saj brez pretiranega truda vedno izgledam urejeno. Odlična opcija je tudi, ko se ti preprosto mudi in nimaš časa zapravljati energije z različnimi kombinacijami. Črna  je vedno elegantna. Za današnjo objavo sem se odločila, da oblečem svoje najljubše Guess by Marciano krilo, črno usnjeno jakno, ki sem ju kombinirala z zelo zanimivo, asimetrično črno srajco iz Zare - spredaj je v celoti odprta, zadaj pa zaprta. Kot dodatke sem izbrala H&M "beanie" kapo, Asos sončna očala, Adidas Stan Smith superge, nov Herschel nahrbtnik in najljubšo Daniel Wellington uro.

My top 5 Instagram Moments in 2015

ENG

We are already in the middle of November and we'll be all soon enjoying the Christmas spirit (well some of us are already doing that). So I've decided that, before everything properly begins, I would share with you my top 5 Instagram moments from 2015. 

1. Countless trips to Graz and Klagenfurt. I absolutely love to visit these two cities. When in doubt what to do, I always make a trip to Graz or Klagenfurt. I love exploring the cities and discovering something new with every visit, chatting in the Cafes and of course shopping. 
2. My first exhibited photograph. It's was really exciting to see your photo printed and exhibited for the first time. It's my plan to do it more often in 2016. 
3. Relaunch of Ana Blush. October was an important month for me, because I relaunched my blog - with new design and schedule. So far it's been great as well as challenging at times, but I managed to do everything that I planned and wanted to do. 
4. New studio. I wanted my own studio for ages. And after weeks of scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest I finally managed to plan and renovated an empty room into a studio. 
5. Lazy Sundays. Weeks just wouldn't be complete without proper lazy Sundays. It's the best feeling to do nothing, to just relax and hang out with family and friends. 

SLO

Kaj kmalu bodo vsi začeli z objavami pregledov njihovega leta, najpomembnješih dogodkov in prelomnic. Ker smo že skoraj na sredini novembra in se bodo v Ljubljani zelo kmalu prižgale praznične lučke, sem se odločila, da letos začnem malce pred ostalimi in z vami delim 5 najljubših momentov na Instagramu iz leta 2015. 

1. Številni izleti v Gradec in Celovec. Sta moji dve najljubši mesti za kratke izlete. Zelo rada raziskujem mesti in vedno znova odkrivam nove nepreiskane kotičke, klepetam v kavarnah in seveda nakupujem. 
2. Moja prva razstavljena fotografija. Zares dober očutek je, ko vidiš svojo prvo razstavljeno fotografijo. Upam, da mi v letu 2016 uspe to večkrat ponoviti. 
3. Prenova bloga Ana Blush. Mesec oktober je bil zame in za moj blog izredno pomemben. V celoti sem prenovila dizajn in urnik objav. Zaenkrat sem bila kar uspešna, vendar je včasih zares zahtevno opraviti vse, kar sem si zastavila. Vendar se ne pritožujem, saj v blogganju naravnost uživam. 
4. Nov studio. Že dolgo časa sem si želela ustvariti lasten studio. Po večtedenskem iskanju idej in inspiracije na Instagramu in Pinterestu, sem končno uspela prenoviti prazno sobo v nov studio, kjer sedaj delam in študiram. 
5. Zaspane, lene nedelje. Teden preprosto ne bi bil zaključen brez zaspanih, lenih nedelj, ko se družiš z družino in prijatelji. 


What are you favourite moments of 2015? Let me know in the comments below.

How to Survive Uni / My Organising Tips

I am a full time student as well as a blogger. I decided in the beginning of October that I'll start posting every single weekday. It's been more than a month now and I just recently got used to it. It's a lot of work but I really enjoy doing it. So I of course have to stay organised if I want to post regularly and also attend all the classes and exams. I'm in a Cafe right now, because I have some free time between the classes and I want to make the most of it. So you know I try to manage everything. 

1. I keep my schedule in my Moleskin, which I prepare over the weekend for the following week.
2. Planning is key. I prefer to plan every single day so that I manage to keep on track with everything. It's the same with blog posts. I plan them over the weekend for the following week, or maybe even for two weeks time. I prepare posts in advance. It rarely happens that I write posts on the same day that I publish them. Well, today's an exception. I take most of the pictures over the weekend, then edit them and save them in titled posts. What's left to do then is just write the main subject of the post and you're good to go.
3. When I'm really stressed I love to pick up a book and just read for some time. I work mostly from my computer so I sometimes prefer to get away from it.
4. Have goals. I absolutely hate this word, but it's true. Have something in mind that will keep you motivated or even print pictures that inspire you to work hard.
5. Having some time off and resting is not something you should feel guilty about. Everybody gets stressed at some point, so just relax and enjoy a few minutes for yourself.
6. Don't procrastinate. It's the worst thing you could do. Because you'll get stressed when the deadlines come for no apparent reason. I know it's hard, but if you do a task you were given as soon as possible, you'll have more time do to the other things you love.
7. Have a playlist prepared that will instantly make you feel better. So when you need a boost of energy just put it on and have a jam.
8. Be prepared to feel overwhelmed. There's a lot going on at the same time. Expect to have moments where it seems to be too much and embrace them, learn something from different situations and plough on.
9. There's no use in waisting time on things you don't enjoy doing/don't see yourself doing in the future. Find something that makes you feel happy. As cheesy as it may sound.
10. Just enjoy!

Review: Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo

In today's post I will review Batiste Dry Shampoo, which I picked up in Douglas on my last trip to Graz. I have tried out many different dry shampoo's before, from Oriflame to Aussie, but I've never been quite happy with them. So I was really eager to try out Batiste because I've heard only great things about this brand. 

What it claims: Batiste Dry Shampoo Floral & Flirty Blush banishes oily roots, giving dull, lifeless hair the makeover it needs without any water. A quick burst revitalises hair, adds body and texture and leaves it feeling clean and fresh too. No need to worry about skipping a shampoo. The essence of femininity, Blush is the floral, flirty way to turn heads. A few quick sprays instantly leaves hair feeling clean, fresh and full of body and texture. (according to Batiste website) 

Retail price: 3,99 eur

My experience: When I was shopping in Douglas, I saw a display full of different scents and I was so excited to pick out my favourite one. I of course had to get the Blush one, which has a very fresh and floral scent. I get oily at my roots but I have dry ends. It has helped great with the oiliness as well as extended the days between shampooing. When you work the product well into the hair well and massage it in, it leaves no white residue and gives great volume too. 
You'll want to wash your hands before applying this so you don't get oil from your fingers all over your hair, which defeats the purpose of using this. All you need to do is shake well, divide your hair into sections, spray it to the roots, massage your scalp thoroughly and then brush your hair. 
Overall, I'm very happy with this product. Dry shampoo is something everyone should have in their stash. This one works great, smells lovely and is reasonably priced. It leaves my hair feeling clean, soft and easy to style. Great range of scents and formulas to suit all hair types and preferences. All in all this a good product, so I'm very happy with my purchase. I love Batiste Blush dry shampoo and I will definitely get myself a backup!

Danes vam bom predstavila Batiste Blush suhi šampon, ki sem ga kupila med mojim zadnjim obiskom Gradca v Douglas-u. Pred tem sem preizkusila že vrsto suhih šamonov (Oriflame in Aussie), vendar me noben ni prav posebno navdušil. Zato sem komaj čakala, da preizkusim Batiste, saj sem o tej znamki vedno slišala le pozitivne komentarje.

Kako učinkuje: Suhi šampon Batiste ponuja takojšno pomoč za vaše lase! Hitro in zelo udobno oživi vaše utrujene lase, jim doda volumen ter svež vojn. Ne bodo vas več mučili upadli in mastni lasje med dvema umivanjema! S šamponi Batiste boste dobili čiste, sveže in voluminozne lase kadarkoli in kjerkoli, ne da bi vam bilo treba uporabiti vode niti sušilca. Očarala vas bo prijetna cvetlična aroma, ki je polna svežine. Suhi šampon samo razprišite na lase, nežno vmasirajte in uredite kot ponavadi. Lepe in čiste lase z ekstra volumnom boste dobili v eni minuti! (kot je zapisano na Salma.si)

Cena: 3,99 eur

Moje izkušnje: Ko sem nakupovala v Douglas-u, sem opazila, da imajo veliko večjo izbiro suhih šamponov kot pri nas. Seveda sem izbrala rožnatega, Blush, ki ima zelo svežo, cvetlično aromo. Moji lasje se zelo hitro zmastijo, vendar pa imam obenem izredno suhe konice. Zato moram zelo paziti, da lase ne obremenjujem preveč z umivanjem. Posledično je ta izdelek kot nalašč zame in moje lase, saj podaljša čas med umivanji. Šampon najprej dobro pretresem, ga nato nanesem na lasišče, pustim 1 - 2 min, ga nežno vmasiram, razčešem in uredim frizuro, kot bi jo ponavadi. Ne pušča belih "usedlin" obenem pa doda lasem ekstra volumen. Lasje ostanejo (vsaj pri meni) čisti in sveži vsaj 2 dni.
Na splošno sem z izdelkom izredno zadovoljna. Suhi šampon je nekaj, kar bi moral imeti prav vsak v svoji kolekciji, saj zares velikokrat pride zelo prav. Batiste nudi pestro izbiro produktov za vse tipe las po izredno ugodni ceni. Je odličen izdelek in sem zares vesela, da sem ga kupila. Ko bom naslednjič obisakala kakšen bližnji Douglas, si bom zagotovila še kakšnega za rezervo!

Fall Outfit of the Day / Zara Robe Coat

ENG
Now that it's November it's finally time to whip out that autumn/winter coat. This is my favourite oversized, camel robe coat from Zara that I purchased last December. It was definitely an investment but I'm glad I bought it because I now wear it pretty much every day. Today's outfit features (unwittingly) most of the items from Zara as well as my new Pittarello Chelsea boots and my favourite, very classic Daniel Wellington watch.

SLO 
Končno je tu november in prišel je čas, ko lahko končno začnemo nositi jesenske/zimske plašče, čeprav je vreme še vedno izredno toplo za jesenski čas. Plašč, ki je del današnje objave je verjetno moj najljubši. Kupila sem ga lansko leto in čeprav je bil kar prava investitcija, sem vesela, da sem ga kupila, saj ga neprestano nosim. Današnji outfit je (nenamenoma) skoraj v celoti iz Zare, v kombinaciji z novimi Pittarello Chelsea škornji in mojo najljubšo Daniel Wellington uro.

Life on a Budget / Following the latest trends

Living on a budget and trying to follow the latest trends at the same time can present a big problem, not only for us students but also for others, who simply don't have a budget for it. If you want to look chic and fashionable nowadays you literally have to spend a fortune. Especially if you are a fashion blogger. Yet I somehow try to balance my student life with my blog on a rather tight budget. And this is how I do it.
I've mentioned before how I like to shop - I love to "invest" in basic items and then subtly add some trendy pieces that elevate the whole outfit. I don't mind spending a bit more money on timless pieces like coats, white shirts, tailored pants, classic black boots, etc. But if I feel like a piece won't last a few seasons I always find it in the High Street shops.
I absolutely love to shop at stores that offer diverse clothing as well as all the latest trends at very affordable prices. They usually copy the best looks from the runway every season, redesign them and offer at more reasonable prices. Some of my favourite shops are Topshop, H&M, Zara, Bershka, Primark, New Look, Mango and online stores like Asos and SheInside, which offers very trendy and affordable clothes. Most of the items from this post are actually from this site. 
I also love to create different collages and templates on Polyvore. It's an application that offers a great variety of fashion, home and beauty items. You can pick and choose, create different looks and also shop them online - they are all marked with the price and link to the website. I usually like to filter my search by price, because I somehow always find myself unwittingly picking the most expensive designer clothes when creating inspiration templates and collages.
For today's post I decided to put together 3 whole outfits under 150 eur - they all also include outerwear and accessories, which was quite a challenge for me, because the final price can quickly escalate to the 200+ range, especially if you include outerwear. These looks just serve as an idea how you can stay on a budget and look fashionable at the same time.

LOOK 1: 129 eur 




Black Trench 18 eur
Mom Jeans 25 eur
Bag 20 eur
Knit Vest 19 eur
Black Grid Print Shirt 17 eur 
Ankle Boots 30 eur 


LOOK 2: 150 eur


Leather Tank Top 15 eur
Split Front Pencil Skirt 35 eur
Tux Coat 40 eur 
Fringe High Heels 25 eur
Croc-Effect Bag 20 eur 
Havanna Sunglasses 15 eur 


LOOK 3: 119 eur 
Culottes 25 eur
Striped Shirt 15 eur 
Oversized Coat 30 eur
Suede Tassel Loafers 19 eur 
Cross Body Bag 20 eur 
Sunglasses 10 eur

My Beauty Box

ENG

Good Morning! 

Today's post features a new launch in Slovenia - My Beauty Box. A monthly subscription box full of beauty goodies. October's Beauty Box contains Essie "Merino Cool" nail polish, Teapigs tea, Ginvera BB cream, Macadamia Deep Repair Mask deluxe size sample and Tattify tattoos. Great products to try out - very versatile and great for the autumn time. 
This post is therefore intended only for my Slovene readers, because it's a new launch and currently only available in Slovenia. 
However, do come back tomorrow for another exciting post. 
Happy Thursday! 

SLO 

V Slovenijo končno prihaja nova storitev, ki je drugod po svetu že dobro uveljavljena - mesečna škatla My Beauty Box. Oktobrski paket vsebuje 5 izdelkov, ki ustrezajo predvsem jesenskemu času. V Beauty Box-u se nahajajo: lak za nohte, bb krema, maska za lase, čaj ter začasni tattoji. Pri My Beauty Box-u mi je všeč predvsem to, da v paketu dobiš različne vrste izdelkov in ne samo kozmetike, saj lahko tako preizkusiš več različnih stvari hkrati. Poleg tega pa je tudi čudovito zapakirana! 

Essie's "Merino Cool" je lak v popolnem jesenskem, vijoličnem odtenku in je bil seveda že večkrat uporabljen v oktobru. Essie je moja najljubša znamka, zato sem bila zelo vesela novega laka, saj se bo "Merino Cool" odtenek odlično ujel z mojo ostalo Essie kolekcijo. 
Naslednji izdelek je ena izmed najbolj nagrajenih in visoko cenjenih bb krem na trgu - Ginvera BB krema, o kateri sem prebrala že vrsto odličnih blogerskih ocen, zato komaj čakam, da jo dodobra preizkusim. Ko bom opravila s testiranjem pa obljubim, da naredim celotno objavo namenjeno le tej bb kremi. 
Čaj zares obožujem, saj ga pijem prav vsak dan, jeseni celo večkrat na dan. Teapigs je izredno znana angleška znamka čajev z odličnimi ocenami. Teapigs čaj je kot nalašč za mrzle jesenske, zato sem vesela, da je bil dodan v izbor. Je odlična izbira za vse nas *tea loverje*. 
Macademia je še ena izredno priznana znamka za nego las. Njihovi izdelki za lase so odlični, predvsem v jesenskem času, ko se vreme začne postopoma ohlajati. Deep Repair masko sem pravzaprav kupila že sama, približno 6 mesecev nazaj in jo uporabljam 2x na teden. Maska je odlična za suhe lase kot so moji, saj so prestali že kar veliko barvanj. Ker pa je počasi že zmankuje, mi bo ta tester prišel še kako prav. Za viden in takojšen učinek je potreben le majhen nanos maske (približno velikost lešnika) na konice las, zato vam bo ta tester služil zelo dolgo. 
Še zadnji izdelek pa so majhni začasni tattoji, ki so bili pravi hit letošnjega poletja. Tattfy je ameriška znamka začasnih tattojev in nalepk za nohte. Začasni tattoji so super za popestritev vsakdanjega izgleda in so/bodo tudi v jesenskem času zelo priljubljen trend. 

My Beauty Box bo na voljo za naročanje v novembru! Zato vam predlagam, da si ogledate njihovo spletno stran in če vas zanima, jo čimprej naročite, da boste tudi vi vsak mesec z veseljem pričakali nov My Beauty Box!

Review: theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer

ENG

In today's post I will review one of the most adored highlighters in the beauty world, Mary-Lou Manizer. It's a holy-grail product of many beauty bloggers and youtubers, with stunning, five star reviews. I always wanted to try it out and I seriously don't know why it took me so long. When I was just randomly scrolling through the Feel Unique website last month, I stumbled across this highlighter and I just couldn't resist anymore, so I decided to finally purchase it.

What it claims: Mary-Lou, a seemingly innocent honey hued luminiser that catches everybody's eye. This highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow. Layer the Balm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer on your lids for luxe-looking lashes, sweep it on your cheeks for a sexy sheen, or use it as an all-over finishing touch before you head out for the night. (from TheBalm website)

Retail price: 24 eur (around 26 $ on Feel Unique)

My experience: As expected, this is an excellent highlighter. Very high quality product and well worth the money. I absolutely love and adore this highlighter, for me personally best on the market and that I've ever own. It has the perfect texture, white gold champagne colour, it's so long lasting and looks great on fair skin. I wear it every single day, both as a highlighter and an eyeshadow. It gives such a lovely glow and if used lightly can make skin look naturally dewy, or if you like a stronger highlight, just use it as you would normally use a highlight. So you need to be careful while applying it because it's very shimmery. I would advise you to be very light handed when using it and remember to tap off the excess on your brush. This product will last a long time time as you don't need much for it to have an effect. I will definitely repurchase it! Fully recommend!

SLO

V današnji objavi vam bom predstavila enega najbolj oboževanih  osvetljevalcev ("highlighterjev"), ki je že dolgo časa nepogrešljiv izdelek v vsaki blogerski kolekciji. Kakšen mesec nazaj sem kot ponavadi brskala po Feel Unique strani, ko sem naletela na ta produkt in sem se hitro odločila, da ga končno tudi sama kupim in preizkusim. 

Kako učinkuje: Mary-Lou Manizer se zdi kot navaden osvetljevalec, ki pa v sebi za nameček kombinira tudi popolno senčilo za oči in osvetljevalec v enem. Legendarni osvetljevalec z medenim pridihom doda vašemu obrazu zrav in svež videz. Medtem ko senčilo ustvarja brezhibno ličenje, osvetljevalec odlično posvetli vaša lica. Za posvetlitev celotnega make-upa ali za ekstra blišč za večerno zabavo lahko zlahka nanesete na celoten obraz (kot je zapisano na Salma.si)

Cena: 24 eur (na Feel Unique) ter 18,60 eur (na Salma.si)

Moje izkušnje: Nad osvetljevalcem sem izredno navdušena in mislim, da je eden najboljših na trgu. Čudovito posvetli celoten obraz, poudari lica ter doda svež sijaj. Vsebuje čudovite zlate podtone, ki so primerni za različne tipe kože. Prav tako je zelo dolgo obstojen. Uporabljam ga prav vsak dan (kot osvetljevalec in senčilo) in sem z njim izredno zadovoljna. Če želite doseči bolj naravno sijoč videz, morate čopič rahlo otresti in nato previdno nanesti osvetljevalec - je izredno pigmentiran in lahko zelo hitro naneseš preveč produkta. Zato bodite pri nanosu bolj previdni. 
Kot je bilo že iz odličnih blogerskih ocen pričakovano sem zares navdušena nad Mary-Lou Manizer osvetljevalcem in vam ga z veseljem priporočam!

My Current Music Playlist


ENG
Good Morning! 

I have another extremely busy, working day ahead of me, full of blogging and studying. But I'm so excited, because I love productive days - procrastination really bothers me, so I like to keep myself occupied with different things at the same time.
For today's post I decided to put together a "playlist" of all the songs I absolutely love to listen to at the moment. I have to admit that I have a very weird (rather eccentric) taste in music. I love different genres - edm, pop, jazz, rap, indie as well as classical music, which I especially love to listen to when I'm studying. It always depends on the mood I'm in. 
I feel that your taste in music is a very personal thing and a special character trait, because you can really get to know the person or at least a side of them by the music he/she listens to.
What are some of the songs you love to listen to at the moment? Let me know by commenting below.

SLO 

Dobro jutro!

Pred mano je še en zaposlen, delovni dan poln bloganja in študiranja, kar pa mi resnično ni odveč, saj si dan rada zapolnim z različnimi stvarmi.
Odločila sem se, da za današnjo objavo pripravim seznam pesmi, ki jih trenutno najraje poslušam. Moram priznati, da je moj glasbeni okus precej čuden in obenem zanimiv, saj obožujem precej različne žanre glasbe - edm, pop, jazz, rap, indie kot tudi klasično glasbo, predvsem kadar se učim. Na žanr glasbe vpliva predvsem takratno razpoloženje, zato se vseskozi spreminja. 
Mislim, da je glasba zares osebna stvar in posebna lastnost človeškega značaja, saj lahko veliko pove o osebi, ki posluša določene skladbe in žanre.
Kakšen pa je vaš seznam najbolj predvajanih pesmi? 

So this is my current music playlist: / To je moj trenuten seznam najbolj poslušanih pesmi: 

1. Adele - Hello 
2. The Weeknd - Can't Feel My Face
3. Ellie Goulding - On My Mind
4. Royksopp - Do It Again
5. The Chainsmokers - Bouquet (album) 
6. The 1975 - Love Me 
7. Sheppard - Be More Barrio 
8. Sigma - Redemption
9. Sam Smith - Writing's On The Wall
10. Dillon Francis feat. James Hersey - Coming Over
11. Syn Cole - It's You (The Rooftop Boys Remix) 
12. CHVRCHES - Clearest Blue 
13. Drake - Hotline Bling 
14. Zara Larsson feat. MNEK - Never Forget You 
15. Diplo & Sleepy Tom - Be Right There
