Summer glow all year around

Hello gorgeous people!
Since the summer is long gone I thought I would share some tips with you to keep your skin looking fresh all year around.

Great food - happy skin
There are a lot of great food out there and as you may already know, it's mainly fruits and veggies. It is more important to take great care of your diet first in order to have beautiful skin. Here are some of my favourite ones:

  • Sweet potatoes - sweet potato chips are my favourite. Rich in beta carotene (carrots have loads of it too). Your body turns beta carotene into vitamin A, which we all know is very important to have that radiant skin. It reduces damage caused by all sorts of environmental hazards;
  • Blueberries - I absolutely love them with ice cream, yogurts or granola. Working with beauty brands previously I realised that most of the anti-aging products are infused with blueberries. The antioxidants in the blueberries are great to stop premature aging;
  • Spinach - this one is my favourite! I put it into my stir fries, salads and ramen. It contains vitamins B, C and E, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and omega 3 fatty acids. Do I need to say anything else?
  • Papaya - new favourite of mine. Contains a lot of carotene and gives that healthy shine!
P.s. You don't have to eat plain vegetables and fruit, there are tons of great recipes for better looking skin, you should check out Aloha's recipes here:, for some great food inspo!

Drink water and tea

You have probably heard this millions of times but water helps to get rid of all of the toxins in your body and keep your skin hydrated. As simple as that. As for myself, I am not a huge fan of it but I try to drink it every day. To make it taste better I tend to make fruit water. Here are some of my favourite ones:
- Basil and strawberries;
- Lemon and mint;
- Cucumber;
- Blueberries.
Speaking about tea, green tea is great for but I have recently found this one from Aloha - it is called beauty tea and it has loads of great benefits for your skin and apparently, tastes great. To be quite honest, I am excited to try this one myself!


It is important to have a set skincare regime. And that is coming from a personal experience. When I finally had a strict skincare routine my skin thanked me for that. You can tweak it according to your preference. But for me it is important to properly clean it and keep it hydrated (there is a skincare routine post coming soon). For that extra gorgeous skin exfoliate a couple of times a week, to get rid of the dead skin cells that make your skin look dull. For all over the body I love to use brands such as Rituals, The Body Shop and Soap and Glory. Also, to keep you body looking tanned I prefer to use lotions with a subtle self tanners. It moisturises your skin and will never look streaky. My holy grail ones are Dove summer glow body lotion and Palmer's natural bronze tan lotion.


I never liked face tanners so for me makeup is the way to go. I love to apply bronzer on the parts of the face where the sun would naturally hit you - forehead, cheekbones, a little bit on the nose and neck. I try not to over do it, otherwise it would not look natural. For that I use a large fluffy brush. My favourite ones are: Sleek face contour kit, Collection contour kit and The body shop honey bronzer.
I love highlighters, they give that lively look. I am quite excited to try out Mac's Strobe Cream because you have to apply it underneath your foundation / bb cream. I feel like that would look more natural. Other that that I love the ones from Benefit and Lord & Berry.

And that's that! Just remember, it is all about how you treat your body inside out. So take care of your diet and trust me, skincare routine will be the easiest part. Hope you are having a great week! Do you have any secrets to share? Let me know! Talk to you soon,

Best red lipsticks

Me and red lipstick. We've always been in a great relationship. I remember, back in the days, 17 year old Vilte discovered the power of makeup. My biggest inspiration has always been and probably will always be different movies and tv shows. From Mia Wallace to my biggest university year rediscovery - Audrey Horne, I was already rocking the red lip. And I still am! I can happily say, that I have a little collection of my favourite red lipsticks and I am willing to share them with you!
Lord & Berry 'China Red' - beautiful brick red shade. I discovered Lord & Berry, whilst I was doing my internship and totally fell in love with this brand. This warm tone shade reminds me of technicolor television and you can totally rock this muted look every day!
Rimmel Apocalips lip lacquer 'Big Bang' - not a huge fan of the formula, I still find myself gravitating towards this shockingly glossy, 'in your face' red. There's no other way I could describe this. It is extremely noticeable. That's the lipstick I always pick if I want to make a statement. Think: Marilyn Monroe type red.
Mac's 'Ruby Woo' - do I need to talk about this lipstick anymore? If you ever read any beauty blogs or watch beauty videos you are probably familiar with this name. If not, this is the type of red that would suit almost every complexion - it is true red with a cooler undertone. The formula? Mate lipstick that will stay put on forever. My favourite, hands down.
Essence 'Femme Fatale' - I've already talked about this lipstick in my previous Ruby Woo Dupe blog post. It might be a tad bit warmer in colour. But you can't go wrong with £1, especially if you're just getting in to this beautiful world of makeup.

There you go, all of my favourite red lipsticks at the moment. I am pretty sure that in few years time I'll be able to write a part two, since I am testing new red lipsticks all the time, even though I have gazillions of them. Go and explore this iconic makeup look, whether you want to be Audrey or Marilyn and let me know all of your favourite shades!

Best eyeliners

Hello beautiful people! Hi to all of the new followers and readers! So nice to see that this beautiful family is growing with every day! Today I am going to talk about two eyeliners that are just the best for that perfect cat-eye!
Lord & Berry Forever Black Liquid Eyeliner - I got introduced to this brand when I first started doing my internship, they focus their products mainly on eyes and lips, no wonder this eyeliner is so good! It has a felt tip, which gives more control but it is a bit more difficult to use. However, you can get a precise line! It dries to a glossy finish which I don't mind at all! I doesn't move anywhere once it dries! This summer is so freaking hot but this eyeliner wouldn't budge!
L'oreal Infallible Eyeliner - You have probably heard about this one! It is really easy to use, so it will be quite helpful if you are new to the eyeliner world. It is really pigmented and it dries to a matte finish. It is not as long lasting, which upsets me but other than that - I love it!
What are your favourite eyeliners?

Tropical vibes

Trousers and shirt - H&M; Sandals - Clarks.

Hello beautiful people, how is everyone? With the extremely hot weather finally coming to the UK I happily got a few summery wardrobe additions. One of them is this beautiful cropped shirt (that is actually under the sweater section on the website). I just love the wrap back and it is such a good quality - worth every penny! It is just one of those staple peaces, that look so good on the body and goes with everything. The next clothing item are these tropical print culottes. Funny story - I wanted to order them online, but they weren't out yet, so I went to the shop and the ones they had were too small, I got back to the shop the next day and they had the last pair left and it was my size! I am so lucky considering they are beautiful and really summery. They do cover the legs (which I prefer) but I still don't feel like I am wearing too much. So I paired the two together because of the different textures and materials, but it still works because of the length differences.
Other than that, has anyone seen BBHMM? Amazing video, with so many references from my favourite movies (Thelma & Louise, The Doom Generation, Carrie) and really cool women. I think Rihanna is just such a cool, inspiring, free lady and she's so talented! And the fact that she found one of the girls for her video just on Instagram is pretty rad. And let me tell you, this girl is hella cool! I am already following her! You can read i-D's article about that here.
Now I'm just counting days until I go back home for holidays and waiting for my offer to be accepted for the new house next year. Goddamn these adult things!
How are you guys? Are you enjoying the summery weather? What do you think about the video?

Oh, and here's a good song ya'll:
