SEPHORA HAUL - GIFT IDEAS

If you're lucky to live near Sephora there are plenty of gift sets for your loved ones, and you.
Here are what I picked, for me:

 Sephora's own line of masks have many to choose from, and their prices aren't cray cray.
Do you have a favourite one on these?
I've seen that basically every beauty tuber has used Benefit's Roller Lash, Porefessional primer and Hoola bronzer so they were on my list. Instead of buying all of them separately look for Work Kit, Girl! that has Roller Lash, Hoola, Porefessional and Tint all four in travel size with a 'travel size price'.
 The Tint really does stay ! This stain was on for almost three days even after ferocious scrubbing so apply with care.
One more legend that I had to get to test was this Too Faced's Better than Sex mascara, in travel size as well.
I might do a test video on trying all these- separate for a mask and one of the makeup.
What are your Sephora must haves?

LASH PARADISE VS PARADISE EXTATIC - THE SAME MASCARA ?!


L'Oréal launched Lash Paradise mascara in the summer at the US leaving us Europeans waiting until August.

Except for the Paradise Extatic inc list looking a lot different.
Are they really the same as L'Oréal would have us believe or not?

OUTFIT POST - FEELING SPORTY CITYWEAR

I love my green bomber but it was too light to wear anymore so I upgraded into this sporty (warmer) bomber from Bik Bok. Some of you might notice that my hair is slightly blonder? Yes, it is. Went to Gyyli to Inka and got my (every six months) hair update done. Absolutely loving it.
 Fun detail if you like to show a bit of ankle but not freeze is to have a nice detail on your socks. I had these cute ankle length stocking socks (I do not know what to call these) with my space shoes.

TESTED ZIAJA OLIVE RANGE FACE CREAMS - BEST FOR THE WINTER?

Warm days are truly over in Helsinki, Finland and with that it means turning your skincare products to more moisturising and hydrating.
I got these Ziaja Natural Olive line face creams to try from FaceHelsinki.
My skin is normal, dry due to winter, but I do get the slightly oily T-zone.
The white package/ jar is anti- wrinkle cream, and for the day.
 The green package/ jar is the intensely nourishing, and I used for the night.
The creams have very mild mild to zero scent, which is super if you're sensitive. 
Anti-wrinkle cream is recommended for 30+, and has Q10 to renew the skin, lessen wrinkles and to prevent them. Olive oil is to nourish the skin and to protect from free radicals. Price is 9,90€ at Sokos department stores and website.

Intensely nourishing cream very rich, so a little goes long way. You can use it as day and/ or night cream, but it was perfect for me as a night cream. The olive oil nourishes skin preventing it from loosing moisture, boosting skins renewal. Restores skins elasticity and softness. Suitable for all ages. Price is 6,90€ at Sokos department stores and website. 

Big words, big promises !
I used the products for over a month, how did they perform?
My skin is super soft. Even my friends have noticed, and one of them wouldn't believe that I wasn't wearing any makeup one day that it was just my glowing healthy skin.
I've also noticed a difference on the fact that I don't have those white pimples, that come from when your skin is dry, anymore. Fantastic !
I apply creams quite liberally, and from my forehead to my 'breastline'. So all the way. 
I find it quite unbelievable that you can have such good products with a super affordable price.

Can highly recommend Ziaja, and these two face creams for the winters malnourished skin.

As an extra I'll show you what I've been using to tackle eye area wrinkles and puffiness.
Denova pro lines Nourishing eye cream on the mornings to give moisture and nourish. Nourished skin equals less wrinkles.
Eye gel with eyebrighter extract to fight against dark under eyes and puffiness during nigh time.

YOGA DOES ME GOOD

I've been doing yoga on and off for almost 20 years- sounds like I should be a pro by now right?
Well, I'm not. There are so many different kinds of yoga that I haven't even tried them all.
What I have tried are Ashtanga yoga, Yin yoga, and Bikram yoga. I can do a separate post on those if you'd like?
The thing with yoga is that every single session, can you say it's a session?, is different.
So much depends on how your day's been, what kind of mood you're in.
Just when you think you think you've 'cracked the code' and mastered something that just leads you to a deeper pose that will strengthen and touch muscles you didn't realise you could use.
Lately, I've been going more to Bikram yoga classes. The heat makes me stretch easier, and I feel that the heat and humidity in the room does good to my skin.
What I really think is the hardest part, and the best about yoga is that for the 90 minutes you solely focus on that. It must be the same though in every sport. I feel like I'm such a hyper person that the concentration and focusing helps me even after the class.

OUTFIT POST - FEELING MY THIGH HIGH BOOTS

I've been searching for a pair of thigh high boots for so many years, it's unbelievable. 
Actually any kind of boots that would go over my (fat) calves, I'll buy straight away if I find.
These boots are from Stockholm (Sweden) shop called Skopunkten, and were around 60€.
I felt like a Cindrella when the shoe fit. I tried the right foot only for it was on display and excitedly asked for the left one. Well that was a show because the one I got was smaller around the calf than the one I had. The super nice assistant brought me all their left foot boots to try, and I  think the fourth or fifth was the same match as the right foot. 
Sounds ridic, I know but come on- they look so nice ! 
Got my hair updated (finally) at Gyyli with who else than megababe Inka. Loves it.
I just got my new sunnies, Marc Jacobs, that have matching prescription than my normal eyewear does too from Synsam. So now I see aswell with sunnies than with my glasses.

DIY - HOW TO SHORTEN LONG JEANS LEGS

Sick of too long jeans legs and not sure how to shorten them yourself? 
I did it, you can too so keep reading.
Photo by Zoja Saveljeva | Edit by me

You'll need:
  • jeans
  • scissors
  • thread and needle
  • nerves
  • time (15- 60 min)

1. You need to measure what is the right length for you by turning up the unwanted part.
2. Measure that the turned parts are the same length.
3. Start by cutting your way from the seam towards the turned part and cut along it.
4. Check that the seam is as straight as possible. 
5. When you put the jeans on you can see easier if there are some parts that need more trimming. Like here on the right leg there's a small part that I've missed.
5. You'll have an open seam, and you want to make a small stitch to seal it so it won't start opening.
A stitch like on the beige pants, just a small one.
6. If you want you can tease out a bit of threads with tweezers.
Annnd then you're done - Congrats !
