A dog in need. Can you help?


This time I am turning to my readers in a moment of need. Financially has everything gone downhill in the last months.
And today I took my dog to the vet, because his foot hasn't been right for the last couple of months. We waited because another vet suggested to wait it up for a month. Well it didn't help, so off we went to a specialized vet.

You know what the problem is? He has a broken knee brace (if my google-fu is right) and he needs an operation ASAP (TTO Operation). The problem is only getting worse.

But we can't afford the fee ($1210), because of the bad financial situation. Heck we can hardly afford rent at the moment!

I am asking kindly for a donation. Any kind of donation will be welcomed (on my paypal: milost.tamara@gmail.com).

Also more pictures can be found here, here and here.My dog is the most kind soul that I know of. You can read his adoption story here, meet Pablo.

If you have the option, please contribute to his operation.

Edit: We settled for a different operation (that has similar success rates), that costs half of the first one. Now we need 450€ instead of 900€. 

Edit 2:
Pablo has already been operated, but we are still raising funds for him, because the operation hasn't been paid for. We found a lovely vet who did the operation on him and is OK on accepting payment whenever we get enough donations. He is now in recovery at my parent's house (because we live on the 4th floor without a lift and we can't lift his 30 kg).

NOTD: Yellow and pink gradient nails


I recently discovered that I actually want to do more nail art.. and for the start here is a very simple, yet fun manicure - a gradient
The only downside? I really hate waiting for the polish to be 100% dry before doing any kind of nail art.

I did my cleanup with acetone and a brush. The brush is a bit big, but does its job well.. we'll see how it will go in the future :). 

I used;
Essence Yeah, Copacabana!
Essence Naughty but nice

Are you a fan of gradient nails?

Empties #7


I am very excited to show you which products I managed to use up lately. 
Some were a miss, but some were a hit when it comes to usability. 

Let's start with the first photo. 

Dove invisible dry deodorant
Well... the name is nice and the scent is neutral enough. However it gave me painful cystic acne on my armpits. Oh boy, the pain! It worked, yes... not sure about the invisible part, I seldom wear black shirts. But if it weren't for the painful little detail, I'd totally use it again.
Repurchase? Nope.

Akamuti Coconut Oil
 (sorry for the shifted poackage)
A wonderful product, about which I wrote here. I loved every inch of it and I hope I will be able to repurchase it in the future. 
Repurchase? Hell yes!

Recipe By Nature Slowganic Lemon cleanser (tester capsule)
Oooooh.. The scent and the texture. Boy, I loved it. The scent is this gentle a bit sweet lemon. Not overpowering and fresh enough not to tickle my senses. The texture is like dipping your fingers in a cloud. So gentle, spongy, smooth....  and I am not even kidding. Just remembering makes me happy. Sadly I used it up in a week and cried my soul out. It didn't dry my skin out, my skin was actually HAPPY after using it. AH. It is too expensive for me to purchase the full size ($40!!), so... goodbye great cleanser. 
Repurchase? I would if I could.

Ok enough of self pity.. lets move to the next part of the empties post.

Himalaya Sensi-Relief toothpaste
I bough this toothpaste because a fellow blogger said she likes this brand. And because she tried the one I recommended. It is nice, it doesn't foam that much and the teeth feel very clean after using it.  However the taste is something that takes a little bit of getting used to - it is a bit salty?
A good toothpaste for when I get bored of my staple (Ajona, if anyone is curious). 
Repurchase? Yes, maybe a different type.

Miss & Mrs mascara
I did a short review of it here, and I have nothing new to add. I like to try new mascaras and this one was Okay, nothing too special.
Repurchase? Not really.

Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Mascara
I don't think I ever wrote anything about it, but I used it here and here
It did its job well, nothing too fancy (except the price). Made my lashes look all natural ;).
I really like the sleek package, but I wish it would give me more volume.
Repurchase? No. (Voglio voluuume) 

Catrice Gilbert's Grapefruit 110 eyeshadow
I manly bought it because I thought it would make a great blush. It kind of does, except it's not very pigmented so more like a highlighting kind of a blush. Lovely. Except it is an eyeshadow. Not as pigmented as I'd hoped, but nice anyway.  Anyway I completely forgot about it (put it away in my mineral eyeshadow box.. don't know why exactly) and it expired. Smells funky, so off it goes. 
I am a bit upset about it, but what can you do.. sometimes life turns this way. 
Repurchase? Not really, I rarely buy single eyeshadows (because as we can all see I lose them or forget about them)

Which products are you running out of this month?
