As a famous comedian Chelsea Handler once said, “we women have to stick together”. A quote that I live and swear by. Even though years have taught me not all female (or male for that matter) relationships work and that sometimes one can even turn their back on you, the years have also taught me that finding the right tribe of women can bring you closer to happiness, success and fulfilment. Women can be your greatest allies, believe me. The past 5 years in a highly competitive and fairly new business, blogging, have taught me that you simply cannot trust everyone. But on the other hand I also found some true friends, women who encourage me and help me be better and better – in life and in business. Supporting other woman’s work will not make yours less successful, less visible or less important. It will make you a greater person. And as all things come back as boomerang, your support will be manifested in the support you will get back. One way or the other.

Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women, who have her back.

Why can’t all women just be nice to each other? Or at least not being mean? Even today in the modern era, women are still unequal and sexism is still highly present in the society. Making a positive change will most definitely not happen by turning against each other, my dear ladies. Instead of sticking a knife in another woman’s back, rather put energy into uniting and supporting each other. Or at least put energy into yourself, you own work. By no means I am trying to convince you to be friends with anyone, to be supportive to any woman out there. Please, just be nice. I get you cannot click with just anyone, I get that sometimes it is hard to see a woman succeed, when you are trying so hard to achieve the same yourself (and it doesn’t really go your way). The least you can do is to show some kindness and respect. Stop viewing other women as your enemies, because they are not.

This post is a tribute to all the women who stick together. It is dedicated especially to my blogger ladies Tesa (Magnifique), Vanesa (Takeoff with love), Nika (Beautyfull blog), Lea (Lepa Afna), Gabi (Parokeets blog), Eva (Nepopolna mama), Pia (Fash’n’fudge), who I am proud to call friends.

second-hand bookshop Ljubljana

I probably haven’t told you before, but I was a huge bookworm as a kid. I like to joke that reading Harry Potter in late night hours, of course secretly – underneath my blanket with a small flash-light and later a cell-phone, probably got me to -6.00 eyesight I have today. Joke aside, I still love books. Sadly today I rarely find time to read and to be completely honest, I miss it. I miss the moment when you open it and by the time you finish the first page you’re completely sunk in. Books offer you an escape from the world, they let you travel without moving your feet, can broaden your mind, are a rich source of information, make you more articulate and well-spoken. Today, when bookshops are displaced by the internet, I still believe in magic when reading something that’s a little battered round the edges, dusty and musty. Something you find in your grandma’s attic or at the second-hand bookshop. As in life, you can find true gems in places you couldn’t imagine.

I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a book. – J.K. Rowling

This video tutorial is all about the autumn makeup trends and the newest Maybelline products. A bit of burgundy-bronze on the eyelids, a classic red (that suits everyone) on the lips, a great mascara and a perfect matte finish base. I hope you enjoy my autumn makeup look I created for the MyMake-up channel!

For this autumn makeup look I used the following products:
Maybelline Facestudio Master Camo Color Correcting Makeup Kit (Light)

Maybelline Sensational Liner
Maybelline Colossal Kajal pencil

Maybelline autumn makeup look

Some may think today’s #ootd is more suitable for spring days, at least colourwise. I disagree! Adding a pop of vibrant colour to your look is a great idea if you want to stand out from the crowd. Street style in autumn is usually full of black, grey and burgundy, and this year is no different. I included the latter two in this look, combining them with a floral print blouse and a vibrant orange coat, to make it even more interesting and fun!

Dm look Ajda Sitar Lepa Afna

Today I am sharing with you the final result of the dm drogerie markt campaign, we shot together with famous Slovenian vlogger Lepa Afna. Together we created 6 autumn makeup looks, each of us got 3 brands to play with. Mine were L’Oreal Paris, Max Factor and Maybelline. I am extremely honoured to be chosen once again as one of the most influential bloggers in Slovenia!

V novi DM kampanji sva skupaj z največjo in najbolj afnasto slovensko vlogerko Leo Filipovič, poznano tudi kot Lepa afna, ustvarili 6 makeup videzov in tako predstavili 6 jesenskih trendov ličenja. Vsaka od naju je dobila v roke izdelke 3 znamk, meni so pripadale znamke L’Oreal Paris, Max Factor in Maybelline.

SE ŽELIŠ DRUŽITI Z MANO IN LEPO AFNO? Skupaj z DM Slovenija organiziramo 2 druženji, na kateri lahko prideš sama, s prijateljico ali prijateljem (vsi ste dobrodošli!).
– 13. oktobra se bomo družili v DM prodajalni v Cityparku v Ljubljani od 17h dalje
– 14. oktobra se bomo družili v DM prodajalni v Europarku v Mariboru od 16h dalje.
Veselim se, da te spoznam in da skupaj poklepetamo!

Počaščena sem, da me je dm drogerie markt Slovenija ponovno izbral za svoj obraz in mi tokrat dal še več kreativne odgovornosti. Vse makeup videze sem namreč na sebi ustvarila sama. L’Oreal Paris videz je tako nekoliko bolj drzen – v znamenju obratnega (angl. reverse) eyelinerja. Videz, ki sem ga ustvarila za Max Factor predstavlja moj značilni, naraven in sijoč makeup videz, s poudarkom na urejenih obrveh. Zadnji, popolnoma rdeč, je Maybelline look, kjer ujemajoči se odtenek na očeh in ustnicah predstavljata matchy-matchy trend, ki ga bom letos prav gotovo veliko nosila. Prav vsi videzi so ustvarjeni izključno z izdelki, ki jih najdeš v prodajalnah DM, torej jih brez težav poustvariš tudi sama doma. Vse te makeup izdelke in še mnogo drugih lahko najdeš v DM za -30% ceneje (ob vnovčitvi 10 točk) vse do 6. novembra 2017.

SODELUJ V DM NAGRADNI IGRI: Na Instagram ali Facebook objavi svojo fotografijo in nam pokaži, kako jesenske trende ličenja nosiš ti. Izberi svoje najljubše izdelke, ki sem jih pri ustvarjanju videzov uporabila tudi sama, ustvari svoj makeup videz in fotografijo objavi na Instagramu ali Facebooku. Spodaj dodaj hashtage #ajdasitar #dmslovenija #ličila (kateregakoli!) in označi @dm_slovenija. Lahko pa tudi mene, da bom tvoj videz hitreje našla. Čakajo te super nagrade, vse od tečaja ličenja, do ženskega razvajanja in 7ih paketov ličil!
