Off topic - relationships! I am sure i am not the only one!?

I have huge fear - i am affraid to appear too clingy. I am not affraid to show my affection to someone, but i don't ever want to be the one, who takes the first step. The first step not necceserily means going to a guy i like and expressing this to him, but i hate being the one, who texts or e-mails first. God forbid be the one who asks a GUY out. I could know, that this particular guy REALLY likes me, and i won't be turned down, i still hate taking the first step. Do you have the same feeling? Like, i want to talk to someone, but i have this ugly feeling in my stomach, that maybe he is busy and i'll be bothering him and he won't, say, text back and then i feel that i lost my... quality? my secrecy.. i don't even know how to put it, but i am sure you all understand it. This especialy is a big problem in the beggining of love affairs. How do i let a guy know that i like him? (This is rethorical question)

So let's call my complex A Princess complex, because i feel…

Going back to basics with haircare

My hair care is the most problematic part of my beauty care regime. I don't have time to put some mask on them, or sometimes even to treat them with a conditioner (guilty). So i perfected the art of shampooing my hair, then blowdrying them and getting out the door in like 10 minutes In addition to get extra 10 minutes of sleep in the morning. So it's obvious that my hair didn't like that tough love routine so much and started to become all fuzzy, and frizzy.. i had a whole lot of split ends.. long story short - it got ugly...

So here i am, sitting in my hairdresser's chair, waiting for her trembling in fear because i know that when she'll see me, she will chop them off... and she did....
My beautif... well, not so much anymore... but looong hair turned just average mid-length locks.... I convinced myself that it is good for them, and.. me... and moved on... I was the one that told her to keep my hair looking healthy no matter what afterall...

My new task/goal was…

Petite Means SHORT, Not Skinny!

Ok, I’m sorry for yelling that title at you, but it’s super duper important.Unless you’re a fashion maven (and possibly, even if you are), you probably think "skinny" when you see the petite section. This is such a common misconception, I just have to set it right. Let’s start by saying Vaida is just shy of 5’3. Not that anyone I know realizes this, as I’m always wearing 4-inch heels. Nevertheless, I’m short - which makes me petite.Yes, that means I should be wearing clothes with a little P marked on the tag.And no, I’m not very skinny – I’m built like a female, not a prepubescent boy/runway model. If I weren’t, however, it wouldn’t matter. Petite sized clothing covers the whole spectrum of body sizes. Remember,it’s about height, not girth!That said, let me explain something else which is very, very important.




It’s possible to petite both above and below the waist – but it’s also to possible to be petite in only one area.This is sooooo important!! Even thoug…

Is Makeup Always your Friend? Celebrity makeup mishaps!

I feel like i've been through all the craziest stages of self image confidence, and now i feel confident about myself they way i am. Well at least way more confident then i used to be. Thanks to the TAG i did before, i got to see my old photos and do some thinking. I browsed of my teen days pictures and couldn't believe how much makeup i was wearing. And the worst part is that i thought i looked awesome and cool and hot. Well i didn't. I looked stupid. And i was just 15-16 y.o...
I guess what i'm trying to say is that we are ALL BEAUTIFUL for the love of god! And makeup was created to enhance our unique features. Not to hide them. 
Me and some fellow beauty bloggers have a natural beauty project comming up soon to try and encourage all the ladies out there to change our view of the makeup. So as an opener for things to come i found some celebrity pictures on the internet that kinda sums up what i just rambled on. :)

Lily Alen withh her frozen eyes.. Imagine her without …

8th folder 8th picture & 12 questions TAG!!!

One of my most amazing fellow blogger friends - Irene from Lovely Violet tagged me to do this fun questionairre and find the 8th picture of the 8th folder of my photos folder! This is so much fun! So let's start.
I actullay don't keep ANY photos on my PC anymore, after having a few accidents, so i keep everything in CD's. So i found the 8th CD and 8th picture from it LOL. I wasn't happy that i had to put up picture from my most .. erm... teenage days...
Here i am circa 16 y.o. and at this time i was so full of myself and very mean girl to my peers. I didn't bully anyone or anything i was just... up in the sky and looking down on everyone. I see girls now like me then and i just roll my eyes and remeber how i was at this age. I mean look at my posture and amount of makeup lol. Yeah....Me and my BFF used to do "photoshoots" like this almost every week, so practically all my CD's are full of photos like this lol. I am VERY happy that i understood how lame…

Operation: Prom Dress. Part 1 - HELP!

This is my last year in high school. I kinda have mixed feelings about it but that's not the point...
The thing is i am having a senior prom after the finals (duh). I don't exactly know the correct date but it's supposed to be in the middle of july. I know... i still have like...2 months... No need to panic. But after chatting with some of my girlfirends from school i found out that most of them allready has their dresses! Yikes! I didn't even started looking. I have no idea what i want and what type of dress would look good on me. The weirdest thing is that i have ONLY ONE DRESS in my closet, and it is simple classic LBD. I don't really like wearing dresses, makes me feel too vulnerabale, since i am like an inch tall, at least when i am in pants i know i can kick someone if needed lol.
So i haven't gone to the stores to check out the dresses, but i did some research online. I wanted to figure out which actresses has simmilar body type as me, so i could check…

Cheryl Cole inspired little lookie

I totaly went crazy about Cheryl Cole a while ago, i was listening to her songs over and over again. I don't really know why i like her. Her songs are typical catchy pop... I think it's her style i like the most. She was anounced best-dressing celebrity on The 8th annual Glamour Best Dressed Women List 2010 compiled from around 14,000 votes. I wouldn't call her THE BEST, but most of her outfits are really gorgeous.
She is my girl crush and inspiration for my style for sure :) Y2JZ9RKPATXP

So, i was getting ready to go out, opened my little box of falsies, and the first thing that caught my eye was Cheryl Cole lashes from Alure.
 I bought them a while ago, and i totaly forgot about them, and that week they were perfect, cause it was C.Cole's week for me anyway lol. So i surfed the web for a while looking at C.Cole pics, and trying to figure out what make up to wear with these lashes.

I always wanted to try her signature bright red lips and full black thick lashes, or…

Applying foundation. How to do it like a pro?

Applying  Foundation is the most essential step in makeup, the problem with it though is that we make common mistakes while doing so. Sometimes it looks "cakey" and sometimes accentuates the flaws we were trying to cover.
We need to learn how to apply and set it correctly. There are lots of different ways of aplying foundation to your face. I'll try to talk about all of them, from my own experience, and a little bit research online (so that it wouldn't be just my single oppinion)
The most popular way of applying foundation is fingers.
You don't have to buy any tools for this method, and it's fast. The coverage is allright, all of us used to put foundation on like this one time or another, before we learned about alternative methods, right? Some famous make up artists does it and it is good for them. It's good enough.... But once you get to use some different method, you won't probaly be going back to applying it with your fingers. There definetly ar…

I love my boyfriend...'s clothes!

Remeber the times, when there was frowned upon for women to wear pants?  Well... you probobly can't be remembering that...  Well... anyway... the times has changed! Radically! 
Now women are not only wearing pants, which were originally fashioned for men, but they have the guts to steal their man's garderobe and wear it as their own. Especially in the past year this huge new trend has overcome all the stylish girls. "Boyfriend... something".
But what is ‘"a boyfriend"? (yes it’s someone you kiss and hang around with, but we’re talking about fashion, not linguistics!) Something "boyfriend" is a piece of clothing you borrow from your guy and which consequently is a bit too large (ideally, unless your boyfriend weights 70 pounds and is 4 feet tall.) Of course all the brand names got hold of the trend and decided to create "boyfriend" for girls (a bit more tigh-fitting), the most famous ‘"boyfriend" are the boyfriend jeans, whi…
