The 2014. Beauty Agenda Recap

Vicarious readers of MB blog surely remember a post dating from January of the current year which is, indeed, leaving us very soon. 2014. Beauty Agenda post was published on 11th of January and looking back now, I really love the concept so I think I'll make it an annual tradition. For those unfamiliar with what a ‘beauty agenda’ is – it's basically a beauty-based New Year's Eve resolution. I write down everything I think I was lacking in the previous year, set my beauty priorities straight and make a plan I seriously stick to during the next 365 days. The idea is to follow that plan and by that I mean all of us – the author and the readers – and at the end of the year we reflect on how or if each resolution passed the test and/or expectations. Since we have a total of ten beauty resolutions and lots of work, let us kick The 2014. Beauty Agenda Recap with the;

Beauty Resolution #1 – decluttering my beauty collection. Making priorities, purchasing products I really use and getting rid of anything not essential. I did a fine job here as I focused on only few things – good foundations, 2in1 blushes & lipsticks, nude-ish eye shadow palettes, nail polishes I actually see I'm going through fast, face cleansers & creams I use every day etc.  Beauty Resolution #2 – make a strict beauty organization and here skincare excelled. I have found my HG face serum (Caudalie SOS Vinosource), I have found my HG eye cream (Kozmetika Afrodita Aqua Thermal eye cream) while I remained loyal to my HG face cleanser, face cream/spot treatment and chemical peel (all from LRP and Alpha-H). I have, however, thrown in a fab Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream, Dr.Hauschka Revitalizing Face Cream and Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Balm into the mix as they all have HG status. Beauty Resolution #3 was there to fill the gaps – if I run out of an expensive product, I need to have an affordable back-up. This year these were the successful replacements; Kozmetika Afrodita shower gels/ creams → L'Occitane. Balea Pink Grapefruit face wash → LRP Effaclar foaming gel, Kozmetika Afrodita Hydra Thermal eye cream → Nuxe Anti-Fatigue eye cream, Balea hand cream → L'Occitane, Garnier micellar water→ Bioderma H2O Sensibio, natural oils (hazelnut, apricot etc.) → high-end eye make-up removers, NYX & Sleek blush → high-end blushes, Revelique Cosmetics 3in1 Concealer Kit → high-end concealers and I put myself out there by venturing into the fragrant world of Avon by using Christian Lacroix Ambre which has saved me some cash. Mascaras, eyeliners and bronzers remained within the budget criteria thanks to Bourjois, L'Oreal and Revelique Cosmetics. Beauty Resolution #4 – complete fail – again I haven't been able to vamp up my hair care. The only products I could say I'm satisfied with are the Tocco Magico Kur hair mask with cotton, the Alkmene Beer shampoo and the Osmo Thermal Defense spray. Beauty Resolution #5 – partial fail as variety in my diet was not successfully implemented. I have gotten more into making desserts and I am making slight improvement but not as much as I hoped for. These two things will have to be in focus next year.

Vjerne citateljice MB bloga se zasigurno sjecaju posta koji datira od januara jos uvijek tekuce godine. Beauty Planer za 2014. godinu je objavljen jedanaestog januara i kada se osvrnem, zaista mi se dopada koncept koji sam razvila te mislim da cu ovakve postove uciniti godisnjim izdanjima na blogu – neka budu jedna vrsta tradicije. Za sve one koji mozda ne znaju sta je to ‘beauty planer’ radi se o vrsti novogodisnjih rezolucija ali sa beauty uporistem. Zapisem sve na cemu smatram da trebam poraditi, postavim ciljeve i plan kojeg se cvrsto pridrzavam narednih 365 dana. Potom autorica i citateljice zajedno prate razvoj tog plana te se na kraju godine osvrnemo na sva postignuca. Posto imamo dosta posla sa svih deset ciljeva, otpocnimo Pregled Beauty Planera za 2014. godinu;

Beauty Odluka #1 – napraviti prioritete i konciznu grupicu beauty proizvoda a kupovati iskljucivo one koje cu u potpunosti iskoristiti dok su viskovi eliminisani. Mislim da sam ucinila dobar posao posto sam se fokusirala na prioritete poput dobrih podloga, ruzeva i rumenila, nudastih paleta sjena za oci kao i lakova za nokte kojima vec nazirem dno. Potom cistaca i krema koje vec trebam ponovo nabaviti jer sam ih potrosila do zadnje kapi. Beauty Odluka #2 – napraviti strogu organizaciju vlastite kolekcije a ovdje sam posebno dobro organizirala njegu koze. Pronasla sam HG serum (Caudalie SOS Vinosource), pronasla sam HG okoloocnu kremicu (Kozmetika Afrodita Aqua Thermal okoloocna) dok sam ostala vjerna svom HG cistacu lica, kremi/tretmanu za nepravilnosti te hemijskom pilingu (sve od La Roche-Posay i Alpha-H brendova). Jedino sto sam ubacila a da je zasluzio kultni HG status su Dr.Hauschka krema/pasta za ciscenje, Dr.Hauschka Revitalizirajuca krema i Oskia Renaissance balzam za ciscenje. Beauty Odluka #3 je trebala popuniti praznine – po trosenju skupljih proizvoda bili su mi potrebni oni pristupacnije cijene ali jednako dobri. Zamjena je isla u ovom smjeru; Kozmetika Afrodita tusiralice → L'Occitane tusiralice. Balea Ruzicasti grejp gel za umivanje → LRP Effaclar pjenusavi gel, Kozmetika Afrodita Hydra Thermal okoloocna → Nuxe Anti-Fatigue okoloocna, Balea krema za ruke → L'Occitane krema za ruke, Garnier micellarna voda→ Bioderma H2O Sensibio micelarn, prirodna ulja (ljesnik, marelica itd.) → skupi skidaci sminke sa ociju, NYX & Sleek rumenila → skuplja rumenila, Revelique Cosmetics 3u1 paleta korektora → korektori viseg ranga a takodjer sam usla u svijet Avon parfema koji mi je sa Christian Lacroix Ambre parfemom ustedio dosta novcica. Maskare, tusevi za oci i bronzeri su ostali u drogerijskom rangu zahvaljujuci Bourjois, L'Oreal i Revelique Cosmetic proizvodima. Beauty Odluka #4 – bila je potpuni promasaj jer ni ove godine nisam uspjela (osim elaboriranih zelja) da ucinim nesto kako bih je unaprijedila. Jedini proizvodi kojima mogu reci da sam bila zadovoljna ove godine su Tocco Magico Kur maska za kosu sa pamukom, Alkmene sampon sa pivom i Osmo sprej za toplinsku zastitu kose. Beauty Odluka #5 – djelimicni promasaj posto znacajne promjene u ishrani nisam uspjela ostvariti. Jesam se zainteresovala i ispraksala sa dezertima ali napredak nisam napravila u mjeri koliko sam se nadala. Drzim fige da iduca godina bude uspjesnija.


Beauty Resolution #6 – passed with flying colors because, not only have I tried falsies for the first time in my life at the start of July – I've amassed an envious collection of falsies! I have them in different styles and colors and I actually wear them. I am not afraid of putting the glue or applying them on my eyes and I even enjoy making make-up looks with them! Extremely happy with this one as I've made such a huge improvement thanks to Ardell.  Beauty Resolution #7 – make my beauty corner(s) pretty but I guess I'll just have to be happy with the current arrangement as my lifestyle doesn't allow me the time or space to sit down and spend hours in front of a dedicated mirror. Maybe one day. Beauty Resolution #8 – incorporate my job (meteorology) in a better ways than previously with the blog's contents. I thought I was doing fine (making cloud collages with you guys) but during these past months it became clear that I won't make it entirely. I had some amazing ideas but never got the time to make them happen. I hope to correct this mistake during the 2015. Beauty Resolution #9 – be more outspoken and flexible and I think I have been. I don't feel any pressure as blogging goes – I write when I want and when I feel right to do so. I do announce if I'll be absent for a larger period of time but there really is no need to have a strict schedule – after all, blogging isn't my job but a very enjoyable hobby. And I'd like for it to stay that way. Beauty Resolution #10 – tremendous success! My Beauty Wishlist is now legendary (at least in my mind it is)! I've been strictly shopping for items off that list and haven't strayed at all. Thanks to my official MB Beauty Wishlist I've made so many wishes of mine come true – I own all Urban Decay Naked and Naked Basics palettes + theBalm's Nude Tude! Woohoo, good girl! I purchased two high-end foundations I've dreamed of (YSL Touche Eclat and Doirskin Star). I've treated myself to three YSL Kiss&Blush lovelies and two YSL Gloss Voluptes + a variety of Essie and China Glaze nail polishes and Seche Vite top coat I lusted after! I finally tried and fell in love with MAC make-up, have rediscovered Dr.Hauschka and discovered Oskia and REN and finally purchased that L'Occitane Sublime Essence serum I wanted so badly. It's all well in the end and I like having things laid out like this – and I cannot wait for the new 2015.Beauty Agenda!


Beauty Odluka #6 – sprovedena je sa fantasticnim uspjehom jer, ne da sam po prvi put u zivotu isprobala lazne trepavice pocetkom jula – sada posjedujem zavidnu kolekciju istih! Imam razlicite stilove, boje laznih trepki i stvarno ih nosim. Ne bojim se ljepila niti nanosenja na oko pa mogu reci da se radujem svakom make-upu koji kreiram sa njima. Izrazito sam zadovoljna kako sam poradila na ovoj stavci a Ardell su mi omiljene. Beauty Odluka #7 – uciniti sve svoje beauty kutke ljepsim i prezentabilnijim no ipak cu se morati zadovoljiti sa trenutnom situacijom posto mi nacin zivota koji vodim ne dopusta vremena ni prostora koliko bih zeljela da se mogu satima ogledati u svom malom carstvu. Mozda jednog dana. Beauty Odluka #8 – uklopiti svoj posao (meteorologiju) na smisleniji, svjeziji nacin sa ostatkom sadrzaja bloga. Jedno sam vrijeme bila cak uvjerena kako stvari idu u pravom smjeru – sjecate se nasih kolaza oblaka i pojava koje smo zajedno pravile? Ipak, posljednjih mjeseci mi je postalo jasno kako ipak to nije dovoljno. Vjerujte da sam imala sjajne ideje ali ih jednostavno nisam stigla sprovesti u djelo. Posto stvarno volite citati o meteorologiji, drzite mi fige da sve upotpunim tokom 2015. Beauty Odluka #9 – biti otvorenija i fleksibilnija te stvarno mislim da takva i jesam. Uopste vise ne osjecam bilo kakvu vrstu ‘pritiska’ kada je bloganje u pitanju. Pisem kada zelim i kada osjecam da trebam, idem po nekom vlastitom tempu. Ispostujem vrijeme citateljica tako sto najavim ako me nece biti neko duze vrijeme ali, osim toga – nema potrebe za nekim strogim rasporedom jer je ipak blog moj voljeni hobi a ne posao. I zeljela bih da stvari takve ostanu ma koliki god uspjeh ili napredak ostvarila sa njim. Beauty Odluka #10 – bila je izvanredan uspjeh! Moja Beauty Wishlist-a je sada legendarna (barem jeste u mojoj glavi)! Obavljala sam kupovinu samo i iskljucivo prema njoj te uopste nisam lutala. Zahvaljujuci upravo svojoj official MB Beauty Wishlisti sebi sam ostvarila toliko ogromnih zelja da sam cak u soku. Posjedujem sve Urban Decay Naked i Naked Basics sjene + dodatak jednako krasne theBalm Nude Tude palete! Woohoo, bravo ja! Kupila sam dvije tecne podloge koje su mi bile velika zelja (YSL Touche Eclat i Doirskin Star). Pocastila sam se sa cak tri nijanse YSL Kiss&Blush ljepotana i sa dva YSL Gloss Volupte sjajila za usne. Da ne spominjemo veliki niz toliko zeljenih Essie i China Glaze lakova + Seche Vite nadlak koji mi je dolazio u snove. Po prvi put sam isprobala i zaljubila se u MAC rumenila i karmine. Ponovo sam otkrila Dr.Hauschka njegu a i iznenadila se koliko je odlican Oskia Renaissance balzam za ciscenje. Napokon sam kupila i L'Occitane Sublime Essence serum koji mi je bio neizreciva zelja. I kada sve pogledam, zaista sam zadovoljna bez obzira na neka manja zabusavanja. Jedva cekam objaviti Beauty Planer za 2015. godinu – a vi?
