NOTD: Deborah Gel effect #11

Hi girls!

Today I have a beauty, one of a kind really. I didn't have anything like it in my collection before. It is a lovely light orange cream polish. 
It applies smoothly and is completely opaque in 2 layers.
Also the drying time is quick. About 15 min max.

It was a perfect Summer shade, but it may play well during Autumn too. 
Do you know what I loved about it? The wet (gel) look it had after it was completely dry. 
The downside? Just about 5 shades to chose from.

Do you like it? Do you have any of these in your collection?

Review: Sleek Makeup Aqua Lagoon palette


I have been putting off the review of this palette for a tad longer than I care to admit.
I got it as a review product, so that's why mine has written "tester" on it. I reviewed it for Ars-Cosmetica.

I am a big fan of affordable product that are high in quality too, and this one is luckily one of those products. 
I already had a bunch of Sleek Makeup palettes and loved them dearly (but gave them away, because I did feel that they were neglected). 

This palette is a mix of vivid matte and shimmery eyeshadows. The shimmer eyeshadows are greatly pigmented ,while the mattes aren't as pigmented as the shimmers. But that's something I was expecting. And also I am not a fan of matte colored eyeshadows, just nudes. 

The staying power is good, the shadows lasted on me a whole day with my Too Faced eye primer. Even in the heat! 


I did have a lot of fun playing with this palette and now that I got reminded of its existence, I will go play with it some more. 

+ Good quality
+ Cheap palette (less than 10€)
+ Long lasting (shimmery) eyeshadows
+ nicely pigmented
+ the colors blend well together
+ sturdy package (except the mirror, I broke that)

- there is some fallout when applying the matte eyeshadows

A nice and cheap palette that is also pigmented and works well with most eyelids and Seasons. With a good primer the colors stay on the whole day even in humid conditions.
The package is sturdy, it survived falling on tiles. Only the mirror broke and the eyeshadows stayed intact. That was a lovely surprise in an unhappy situation. 
Also, why four stars instead of five? Because of the fallout and because I am not a fan of colored matte eyeshadows. I am biased, I know. :P

Would I reccomend it? Yes, if you like a pop of color on your eyelids. 

Do you own it? Do you like it? Would you like to add anything?

Mom Diary: 23 months old


I am back with a new part of the Mom Diary series. I think that these will end within a month when I will write my last post (for now) about him turning 2 years old. I loved writing these, but I think it's time to respect his privacy (so he won't be too embarassed when he grows up, haha) and limit these posts to just picture posts in the future. I am still not sure about this idea, so I'd be really happy if you could tell me what do you think.

I will still post pictures on instagram (snapshots of our daily life), because he is way too cute :P.

We went on a small roadtrip with my sister and her rented car a while ago. We were away for the whole day and had a blast. Well almost, because we got lost and had to take the long road to get back home... Which took us to about 7h of driving!!

This was on lake Jasna, which is a great stop. There are two small lakes and the air is pretty fresh. Lovely for taking photos. But it was too hot, so off we went. The kid was wonderful during the trip, except when he threw up all over the car. Whoops! :( We cleaned him as best as we could and then went home (which took us many many hours). But he is a good sport and didn't complain at all. He also enjoyed his pause for a snack or two :).

For his birthday we decided to get him a balance bike. My lovely child helped us pick it, but sadly I bought one that was too big for him :(. We went to exchange it the next day so now instead of a Puky, he has a Kokua. Pictures of him driving it come in the 24M post.

He is a wonderful little helper and loves helping. If we won't let him, here comes a little tantrum. But nothing too drastic. 

When we hopped quickly in the store with Martina, he was having a blast with some colored pencils and a drawing of a cow. :)

His favorite toy are still the Lego duplo bricks, which he stashes and creates new things. We also established some basic rules for him to follow. Nothing too hard or too drastic. Just; Don't bite, kick, hit ans throw things/people. Two cartoons max per day (20 min/day).
That's it. It's nice and simple.

He likes to imitate everything. From words to actions. Mommy has an ice cream? I want!! :D Share, share, share! Sure.

The best thing is that he is finally starting to play with other kids. Older kids like to play with him too, since he likes to please. He is a little non-conflict kid, who will rather move away than cause a scene with other kids. Except if he wants something/doesn't want to share a toy. Then he will grab the item an RUN with it! That's a thing he learned from observing a nother girl..  Great.. haha!

On our mini trip. :)
And he loves water. We took him to experience the river Soča from up close. It was of course way too cold for swimming, but he did enjoy the sand next to it. 

And this is where his love for dinosaurs began. I took him for this exact same reason to Arburetum, where was a dinosaurs exibition. As you can see he did enjoy it (in picture: with his Aunt).

He's a playful little fellow. As he should be, kids should be carefree and happy :). Nothing makes my heart more warm, than his beautiful smile.. 

Of course he has to do everything alone. "mommy, no!" are his 'favorite' words now. 
Also, he's a born actor ;). Playing "sleeping" where he acts like he is snoring and closes his eyes (tho he peeks through them! haha) and acting like he is crying. The second later he is laughing, proud of his show ;).

I am closing this post with this little thought, because I am very behind my diary posts. 
There is no bigger joy in a life of a parent, than seeing their kid healthy and happy.
