Testing In Progress...

1/21/2015



I cannot lie to you, I'm utterly uninspired on this miserable day. There's rain, than fog, more rain, more fog - my mind is scrambled and I'm unable to put together a decent line (which you'll be the judge of 'till the end of this short post). Then we have a new phase in my workout/fitness/healthy plan - it's called 'I feel lazy' kinda phase. To be honest, I enjoy going to the gym and it's often a highlight of my day but...I'm unsure how I feel about locker/changing room conversations that I cannot elude for the life of me. Last time a fourteen-year-old asked me about how her bum looks. How to answer such a question? Sorry, I completely got carried away mumbling but these are all new experiences to me and I'll be honest to say that I try to keep the time spent in the changing room to a minimum. Going with that minimalistic theme, I have to report that at the start of the year I have received tons of drugstore make-up bits and bobs from Catrice and Essence. I have over thirty (thirty!) products and even though I'd love to review every single one of those, I simply don't think that's realistic as testing, photographing and reviewing would take months. And I also have to keep versatility of the blog's content in mind. Instead, I've decided to only feature the extremes at the blog (extremely good and bad ones, if there are some). And perhaps do a few manicures as there are some interesting nail art thingies thrown in. After I'm done with testing, I'll make a recap where I'll categorize all this make-up into three categories (excellent, good/average and meh/skip it bins). I'd also love to hear some recommendations regarding Essence and Catrice from you guys - I've already been told at my Instagram account that Essence Silky Touch Blush is amazing and an exact shade has been recommended to me so I'll probably pick it up (shade 60 - Life's A Cherry). I know many are intrigued by Catrice eyeshadow palettes, Essence Lash Princess Mascara and Catrice Prime and Fine Anti-Red base as well. However, I'd truly appreciate it if you could throw in some additional recommendations. Oooh, I'm also very intrigued in trying those Catrice separate lashes! I'm very excited and I hope you'll enjoy these drugstore additions at the blog!

Ne mogu da vas lazem, u potpunosti mi nedostaje inspiracije na ovaj uzasno dosadni, monotoni dan. Kisa, magla, jos kise, jos magle - potpuno pomracenje uma. Nekada mislim da ne mogu sastaviti pristojnu recenicu (sto cemo saznati do kraja ovog kratkog posta). Potom imamo novu fazu u mom zdravom/fitness planu koji sam postavila pred sebe - zove se 'lijencuga' faza. Iskreno govoreci, cak sam i ja iznenadjena u kojoj mjeri mi odlazak u teretanu prija i koliko mi vjezbe odgovaraju. Cesto je taj sat u teretani i najbolji dio nekih dana ali...nisam sigurna kako se osjecam po pitanju specificnih zenskih razgovora u svlacionici koje poput agenta 007 pokusavam (za sada bezuspjesno) izbjeci. Prosli put me cetrnaestogodisnjakinja upitala kako joj guza izgleda. Kako odgovoriti na takvo pitanje? Izvinjavam se, mozda sam se i previse zanijela na ovu temu ali izgleda da su ovo sve neka nova iskustva za mene. Jedno je sigurno - definitivno svodim vrijeme provedeno u svlacionici na strogi minimum. Kada smo vec kod minimalistickog pristupa, imam za prijaviti jednu vecu posiljku kozmetike koju sam primila pocetkom godine. Radi se o preko trideset (preko trideset!) kozmetickih proizvoda od Catrice i Essence drogerijskih brendova. Razmisljala sam o tome kako izvesti njihovu prezentaciju i iako bih najvise voljela da sve i jednu stvarcicu pojedinacno recenziram - mislim da to jednostavno nece biti moguce. Testiranje, fotografiranje i pisanje recenzija bi trajalo mjesecima a na umu volim imati i da ne zelim da sadrzaj na blogu postane monoton. Zato sam odlucila da samo ekstremno dobri ili ekstremno losi proizvodi (ako ih uopste bude) dobiju svoje zasebne recenzije. Takodjer sam medju stvarcicama dobila i par jako zgodnih pomagala za nail art pa cete sigurno vidjeti i koji manikir. No kada testiranje svih proizvoda bude zavrseno, napraviti cu rekapitulaciju tj. jedan takav zbirni post u kojem cu sve proizvode podijeliti na tri kategorije (izvrsni, solidni i za preskociti), naravno uz argumente. Voljela bih ako bi mi u komentarima zapisale neke svoje preporuke - koji proizvodi ova dva brenda su dobri, koje preskociti, mozda par preporuka? Preko svog Instagram profila sam vec saznala da moje citateljice smatraju Essence Silky Touch rumenila izvrsnim te sam cak dobila preporuku i za odredjenu nijansu (60 - Life's A Cherry). Koliko se mogu sjetiti, prilicno vas zanimaju Catrice paletice sjena za oci, Essence Lash Princess maskara i Catrice Prime and Fine baza koja neutralise crvenilo. Bez obzira na te vec postojece natuknice, zaista bih cijenila komadic vase mudrosti u komentarima. I da - jako se veselim isprobavanju Catrice trepavica u pramencicima! Nadam se da ce vam ovi proizvodi biti zanimljivi i dasak necega novog na blogu!
