What's In My Gym Bag: Workout Essentials

What's in my gym bag
With summer just around the corner I decided to schedule a few fitness related posts which I cannot wait to share with you. As much as it makes sense when everyone says you need to start getting "summer ready" in winter (or even better, the summer before - I wish, right?) I strongly believe it's never too late to be active. Even a few weeks of working out do pay off combined with healthy and portion-controlled diet. Being in the middle of the house move I am still making effort to hit the gym and walk a lot (who else tracks their step count?). A couple months ago I got this beautiful VS PINK campus backpack that started to serve right away as my gym bag. Just like I shared the contents of my purse in my What's In My Bag post, it's about time I wrote about what I take with me into the torture chamber, ahem, gym :) Edit: this is, obviously, a joke. I actually really enjoy gym and taking long walks.

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation: Worth The Hype?

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation review
Sometimes I catch myself thinking about absolutely random stuff (while blow drying my hair being half-asleep, for example): "Who started to say "on fleek" and why did it stick with everyone?" - how sad that "on fleek" is so 2015 - or "How come is *insert a product name here* made into a staple because of the hype around it?" To be fair, that's pretty much the only time of the day when my brain goes into this scatter mode aka the thought wander. But let's go back to the point I am making here - hype. If you have read my review on Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation (here) you most likely remember me saying how sometimes an overhyped product can be quite disappointing. I am extremely cautious when there's 'much ado' being created around something. At the same time, certain products do wonders for one person and couldn't be worse for another. Keeping that in mind, I gave in to the hype around NARS Sheer Glow (only after a few years, right?) and decided to test it out. What intrigued me the most about it was very mixed reviews. Let's see how it panned out for me.

April Favourites | 2016

April Favourites
Before I even start writing anything monthly favourites related, let me just say that the weather has been so beautiful this week! It's unreal how warm it is outside, and that alone is a solid reason to smile and be thankful. Back to monthly favourites: as you have probably noticed, March Faves never happened. I had to put blogging on pause for half of month #04. All because April '16 wasn't the greatest one this year. I can definitely say it was one of the toughest months in my life. Have you ever hit that stage when everything is happening at once and crashing down on you? Yeah, that was my April. However, instead of "reminiscing" about the negative / confusing / sad / painful part of last month, let's look back on lovely bits and pieces I got to enjoy. Can't tell you how happy I am April is finito. Praying for guidance and clarity in May. We really really (really!) need it now. As tough as April was, I'm thankful for the lessons I have learnt.
