Here I am today, presenting you my very first YouTube video. It’s a makeup tutorial filmed in collaboration with the Mymake-up.si webpage, which I regularly write articles for. Speaking of the tutorial, the whole look is created with drugstore makeup products only, Maybelline to be exact. I went for smokey eyes with a hint of violet and deep, (almost vampy) plumy-red lips using the following products: Maybelline The Rock Nudes eyeshadow palette, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious mascara, Maybelline Color Sensational Loaded Bolds in the shade 885 Midnight Merlot and Maybelline Master Strobing Stick in the shade 100 Light. It’s fall appropriate and a bit more glam than usual, but perfect for a date night or a crazy party with friends. Unfortunately, it’s in Slovene, but for sure you can enjoy the video, it’s really not hard to guess what I’m talking about. Maybe even bookmark it for when you’re getting ready Friday night?

LJFW Ljubljana Fashion Week blogger

Although fall usually brings darker colours into my wardrobe, this year’s Ljubljana Fashion Week I decided to go for a complete nude look. Nude definitely holds a certain femininity and refined, classy minimalism. It got my attention in form of two stunning NA-KD pieces, a ribbed long-sleeve dress and a light trench coat. I combined them with a Duna Sab choker, my newest obsession! Made by Dunja Sabljic, a Serbian designer, chokers fully draw my attention and you will definitely see me wearing this trend much more in the upcoming weeks.

Ljubljana Fashion Week has served us some exiting new designs. I spotted some stunning pieces, met new people, chatted with my fellow blogger friends. The concept of Ljubljana Fashion Week was a bit different this year; the designers could either opt for a spring/summer collection or put on the runway fall/winter pieces. In the following three days we were able to see the new collections of EBER krznarstvo (Mateja Štimac), MAJA FERME fashion (Maja Ferme), MiroMisljen (Miro Misljen), N a t a s a H r u p i c (Nataša Hrupič), Nejc Šubic (Nejc Šubic), Petja Zorec (Petja Zorec), Sanija Reja Aske (Sanija Reja Aske), Tina Gorkič (Tina Gorkič), Young@Squat (Barbara Krmelj, Maja Leskovšek, Sara Valenci in Timotej Bistan) and ZOOFA (PATRICIA PIE, ZELOLEPO, JSP, PRINCIP by Mojca Celin, NELIZABETA, NI – nikoli isto/never identical, Renata Bedene, Firma by Sanja, Simona Kogovšek, tinapavlin and vesnastih). I only managed to visit the last two shows and I believe I caught the “crème de la crème” of Slovenian fashion. however all of the designers did a great job.

Zoeva Graphic Eyes+ Box Vol.2 review

Zoeva Graphic Eyes+ Box Vol.2 is an exclusive limited collector’s edition of 16 radiant Graphic Eyes+ eyeliners. I got it a while back, until today I had the chance to play with all of the shades included. They convinced me with excellent pigmentation and versatile use – you can use them as your regular eyeliner pencil along the upper and lower lashline or (as I prefer) smudge them with a brush. Their texture is super smooth and creamy, while it sets nicely, doesn’t budge and lasts the whole day thanks to the waterproof formula (consequently, you need a waterproof eye makeup remover to get them off). You can either wear one on its own, mix it with another eyeliner or any other eyeshadow you own.

Zoeva Graphic Eyes+ Box Vol.2 – the perfect colour selection

Most of the shades in the Zoeva Graphic Eyes+ Box Vol.2 are bold and statement, however there are some subtle colours as well. You can easily create versatile day or night eye makeup looks. Some of them contain small shimmery parts (or have a metallic finish), some are matte.

Speaking of the favourites, there are a lot of shades I truly like, but I decided to highlight 5 of them – Taupe, Myth, Nude Reflection, Glance and It’s Never Over (the latter can be also used as a lip pencil). As you can probably tell, I am more of a “nude”, earthy kinda gal. But still, I love to go for a dazzling bold look from time to time. Overall, there are 16 different shades included, 7 warm toned and 7 cool toned, plus a super white and an extra dark black (these two are a staple in every girls’ makeup collection).

Don’t forget to check out the swatches below of all the eyeliners included in Zoeva Graphic Eyes+ Box Vol.2.

The Zoeva Graphic Eyes+ Box Vol.2 comes not only with 16 eyelines, but also with a sharpener (which is always handy!). It retails for 79,00€, you can purchase it in their online store Zoeva. Each liner can be bought individually as well, retailing for 7,80€. Considering that the whole box is a bargain (you get approx.6 shades more than if you bought them separately). At least if you’re a liner lover and prefer a wide selection of shades. Overall, I believe the Zoeva Graphic Eyes+ Box Vol.2 is something makeup artists would appreciate. It’s an impressive collectors piece that I proudly own and display on my makeup vanity.

For my makeup look I used 3 Zoeva Graphic Eyes+ eyeliners: The Truth, Regency and Black to Earth.

Shambala Petit Hotel Tulum

It’s quite obvious I’ve been doing a lot of travelling around the world this summer. I’ve been to Mykonos (Greece), explored the Dalmatian cost of Croatia, wondered around the streets of Barcelona and last, but not least, soaked up the sun in Mexico. I’ve shared a lot of memories with you, my dear readers. And I’ve got much more to tell you. Speaking of Mexico, as you might notice, I stayed in 4 gorgeous hotels and Shambala Petit Hotel in Tulum is the last one from my Mexican trip I need to tell you about.

Tulum has won our heart, mind and soul, and that’s the reason we decided to change our travel plans – instead of spending the last two nights in Cancun, we returned to this eco-friendly part of Riviera Maya with white sandy beaches, palm trees and turquoise water. We stayed at the dreamy Shambala Petit Hotel with direct access to the sea.

Eat, sleep, swim, sunbath, yoga… repeat!

Shambala Petit Hotel is located on the South beach of Tulum, Mexico. It has a unique energy, magical scenery and is probably one of the best places to energize your body and mind. Shambala Petit Hotel is not only a place to stay, but also hosts Yoga Retreats with the best yoga teachers from all over the world. Their Yoga Studio is located directly on a beach, within a few steps from the Caribbean ocean. We didn’t practice any yoga for the time being, but for sure thinking about returning to this magical place to experience some in the future. Otherwise, Shambala Petit Hotel offers 10 cabanas located on a private beach, where you can relax, drink some fresh coconuts, observe the starry skies at night, listen to the sound of the waves and maybe even see some turtles. In our two nights there we saw two little turtles, just hatched, and a much bigger “mama grande” (it was truly humongous!). Hidden among the palm trees we felt immersed with nature and utterly pampered.

Casa Eolo, a place of The God of Wind

All of the 10 cabanas of Shambala Petit Hotel open out onto the beach. Ours, named Casa Eolo was the closest one to the ocean. Casa Eolo, a house of the God of Wind, is a perfect name for this out-of-this-world suite. You walk into the cabana straight from the beach, there’s a king size bed, a small living area and a private bathrooms inside. Imagine sliding the doors open and getting a front row view of the sea! Pretty close to what I expect Paradise to be. It’s luxury, minimal and modern, but still makes you feel welcome and peaceful.
