After few months of following on social media I finally subscribed to one of the most popular beauty boxes in the UK – Birchbox.
Most important, I liked the idea of getting and trying new skincare and makeup products from different brands, including well-known names like Rituals… and Lumene, and not spending long hours in Boots while selecting essentials – I literally spend an hour once selecting a sun cream! Also, since I moved to London and throw away a lot of my cosmetics, I needed an update to my makeup bag.
As Birchbox quite often has pretty good offers for new subscribers, I used a promo code to receive a July box plus a surprise mystery box from previous months. So I got two beauty boxes with 10 new products for only £12.95!
THE ROYAL WEDDING!
While the world is watching you cannot miss an opportunity to celebrate it in style. Your perfect wedding outlook should be meticulously planned. For me it’s not about being dressy and classy, but also about finding a middle between individual and trendy. Thus, I am going for a snow white Любовь (Love) shirt with cloud grey tulle skirt and classic Chanel crossbody bag as an addition. #teammegan all prepared!
Of course, your look isn’t finished without makeup. Play with nude shadows, eyeliner, and soft strawberry daiquiri color or go for smoky eyes, red lipstick, and blush – don’t be afraid to apply a little bit more than usual, as the day ahead would be very long! And, of course, don’t forget about your favorite perfume 😉
Now be ready for a long day of fun and celebration of love! Shine bright like a diamond on Meghan’s ring. However, even if you are the best wedding guest one can ever wish about, don’t forget about the most important people at the ceremony – the bride and the groom. Treat them with care and respect – you should remember that it’s probably the best day of their life, while on the same time being extremely stressful.
Additional requirements: commemorative mug for the afternoon tea (Earl Grey with milk), biscuits, scones or Victoria sponge, a glass of prosecco, Union Jack flag, TV and/or Internet broadband.
Sending out love and all best wishes to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the wedding day!
P.S. I am all prepared to catch the wedding bouquet from Hackney…
London, 19 May 2018.
Hey, it’s national fragrance week! And I am a big fan of everything that smells nice and I couldn’t go anywhere (even in a grocery store after a milk) without my fragrance on. So here are my top 3 fragrances and EDT:
Eau De Gaga – the one and only, my absolute favorite! It’s already my third bottle, and when I bought my first one I even didn’t try it!! I just took it because it’s from Lady Gaga ahaha such a fan girl. But this one is truly MINE aroma.
“I don’t know the name” by Oriflame – I got this aroma twelve years ago!! Can you imagine it? And it is still absolutely amazing and last very long!
Zara 02 Sweet Vanilla Hackney London – now I don’t only live in Hackney, now I literally smell of Hackney! Sweet and nice, not exactly what I usually like, but very nice for dresses and when in girlish mood!
And what about your favorite fragrance? 😉
Every girl needs a pamper night, especially during this awful weather! We just had six days of snow in London, and I myself felt these unexpected not-Londonish weather conditions on my skin – it’s sooo dried! So, my perfect pamper night set is all black! And, of course, has an obligatory British element – this time, a cute guard on my new face cloths from Tower of London! My perfect pamper night also includes at least an hour of my favorite music, most often something I haven’t heard for ages. I like when my body gets all those goosebumps while listening to old favorites. The sense of perfection and all those “Oh my gosh, how could anyone on Earth write this masterpiece” helps me to reduce stress, regain energy, and inspire me to do more and to want more.
My all black pamper set:
Joik Green Tea and Peppermint Facial Mask
Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub
The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream
The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Body Butter
Old & New Music
Throwback to the day when Pauline made beauty🍂
Eau de Gaga is my most favorite perfume in the whole world ❤ I am sooo addicted that it’s already mine third bottle since it has been launched. I even was hysterically searching for a place to buy new when my first one suddenly ended up before a date, as I can’t imagine myself without this aroma😂#girlproblems
Speaking of perfume in general, I don’t like “girlish” aroma. I prefer heavy scents, something reminding of whiskey and cigarettes, of black suits and leather boots.
And what is your favorite perfume or scent?
This July goes as… makeup month!

What is the most important thing in a girl’s bag? Of course, a lipstick 🙂
I must confess that I have some more red lipstick than on this pic 😀
