Take care of your skin- Emma Hardie

Hi guys!
It's been only few days while I didn't post anything and it feels like forever! I honestly try as mush as I possibly can to share my life and my thoughts with you. This time I want to tell you about the new product I can't live without anymore. I actually was planning to make "My skincare routine" blog post but what can I say... I just need to dedicate the whole post for this product because it's that good! So not long ago I decided to finally get Emma Hardie Moringa cleansing balm because everyone was just raving about it. I didn't want to go for a full size bottle as I wasn't sure if I'm gonna like it, so I just ordered 4 piece starter kit from Feel Unique. I paid 32 euros (25 pounds) for this set which includes 50ml cleansing balm, 15ml face cream, cleansing cloth and a wash bag. After I tried it I honestly think it's amazing. The best product I've ever tried to clean my make-up.
Benefits:
Moringa Cleansing Balm, a balanced daily cleanser that thoroughly cleanses and moisturises and can calm sensitive skin and revitalise dull and mature skins. Doubles as a soothing and hydrating mask if left on the skin for ten minutes. Cleansing Cloth a unique Micro fibre cloth purposely designed to deliver super deep yet ultra-gentle pore cleansing and make up removal, fine lines appear smoother and the skin brighter. Backed with muslin to help insulate heat for ultimate compressing and skin cushioning.

And this is exactly what cleansing balm does. I was using just a simple make-up remover with cotton pads before (or facial wipes if I was very tired). And my skin used to get very dry and red after every cleaning. It's been only more than a week after I started using Emma Hardie and I can feel the difference already! My skin is in a super good condition at the moment and I'm hundred percent sure it's because of this cleansing balm. I already recommended to most of my friends and still can't stop talking about it!
Directions to use:
Mix a few drops of warm water with a little Moringa Cleansing Balm in the palm of your hand to create a milk. Apply to the face, neck and eye area using circular motions and massage thoroughly to melt away make-up, excess oils and grime. To remove, soak your professional cleansing cloth in warm water, squeeze out the excess and gently wipe over the whole face and neck, taking extra care around the delicate eye area. Use the gently abrasive muslin side of the cloth to exfoliate dry, lined, thickened and congested areas and the smoother microfibre side for more delicate and sensitive areas. Skin is left feeling clean, smooth and supple; never tight. Use morning and night.
I literally do the same thing when cleaning my face. It's so easy and takes no more than 5 minutes. I actually wasn't sure how it's gonna take my mascara off and if I can use it on my eyes. Both answers are- YES. I do apply it on my eyes and it takes off mascara very easily. Skin is always fresh and clean. I just can't recommend this cleansing balm more to you! Definitely will be purchasing again in a full size bottle!
If you have a problematic skin please take care of it! Don't use these cheap facial wipes and invest into product which is really doing it's job perfectly. You will see the difference. I promise.

66 sleeps until Christmas

I know I might look as such a paranoid person but it's only 66 sleeps left until Christmas! Haha. This post is a little bit pointless but I had an amazing day out yesterday with my friends and took some pictures so thought I need to share it with you. Basically me and two friends of mine met in Piccadily Circus and just had a little walk to Harrods. And I could't believe how Christmassy is in there already... So many lights, Christmas trees around. I just got way too excited!
That's the book I need to buy for myself. Haha.
Sparkling wine at Pizzeria.
Bread selection with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and olives.
We played a game and that's what my all life is about. 
I hope you're excited for Christmas as much as I am! 
Have a nice weekend,
Karolina

Harley Quinn Halloween make-up


Hey guys!
As you may noticed I'm a bit obsessed with Halloween... haha. One more post here! This time I thought I'll make a small Halloween make-up tutorial. I know that this Harley Quinn look will be go-to this year so I decided to recreate as it might be helpfull for some of you. I loved the Suicide Squad and Harley especially. If you'll be going to Halloween party with you boyfriend or male friend you can create Harley Quinn and Joker look which would be so cool! Just follow these steps and you will have a perfect look. You don't need to be a make-up artist as it's super easy and takes only about 30 min! Let's go!
For the foundation you need to use the lightest shade you have. I didn't have any light ones and didn't want to buy a new one as I probably not gonna use it again. So I used my favorite Collection Lasting perfection concealer in shade 1 (fair). Apply it all over your face. Fix it with loose powder and apply some lip balm on your lips to make it softer.
Collection Lasting perfection concealer 01
Max Factor loose powder
Carmex Strawberry lip balm
For my eyebrows I was using Inglot brow liner gel as always and NYX tinted brow mascara. Eyeliner is the most important thing creating this look. I was using Maybelline master ink matte. Don't worry about the perfect eyeliner because we need to create that messy look. I used a small brush just to blend it on the sides.
Inglot brow liner gel in 14.
NYX tinted brow mascara in 03 brunette.
My favorite part now- eyeshadow. You need any red and blue eyeshadow. I couldn't find the right colours in the Boots so just ordered on Ebay. These are loose eyeshadows- to make it easier to work I sprayed some Nyx setting spray on my brush and then applied. Works perfectly.
Starry Eyes by Laval in 20 (red) and 02 (blue).
And now you just use the same eyeliner again for a heart and "ROTTEN". I feel that it doesn't matter on which side of your face you paint that as I checked few Harley pictures and saw it on different sides. So feel free to choose your better side.. haha.
And the last step- lips. You are going to need any red lipstick.
I was using KIKO Smart lip pencil in 703 and Technic Colour max matte lipstick in Rouge a levres. Don't forget to spray some setting spray all over your face and you're done!!
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and if you would like more- please leave a comment bellow! It means a lot to me!
Thank you for coming and see you very soon,
Karolina

Pumpkin carving & pumpkin soup

Hello everyone!
I hope you're well and ready to start a new week. It's only Monday today but I already can not wait for the next Sunday to come... Haha. It's just my favorite day when I can stay all day at home or go somewhere and do something fun. Yesterday I thought that I need to start to prepare for the Halloween. Usually I'm not too excited about but not this year. I think it's because I love autumn so much so all the decorations for the house just make me happy. And I can't wait for Christmas though. 
So yesterday I was carving pumpkin for the first time in my life! Even if I look so focused in the pictures it's was actually so easy. I'm not very artistic person so chose the easiest pumpkin "face" I could find on google. Haha. It looks super simple but I still love it. 
From the inside of pumpkin I decided to make pumpkin & bacon soup with maple syrup. Again- super easy and delicious! You can find the recipe down bellow. 

Pumpkin & bacon soup
Ingredients:
1 table spoon vegetable oil
50g butter
150g unsmoked bacon
500g pumpkin flesh
1,5l chicken stock
150ml double cream
3 table spoons pumpkin seeds, toasted
maple syrup, for drizzling
dills

Method:
In a large, heavy- bottomed pan, heat the oil with 25g butter. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and cook on a low heat for 10 mins or until soft. Add 60g bacon and cook for a further 5 mins until the bacon releases it's fat. Then increase the heat to medium, add the pumpkin and stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for about 40 mins until the pumpkin is soft. Pour in the cream, bring to the boil again and remove from the heat. Blend the liquid until smooth and velvety. If there is any need add some more water and boil it again,
Melt the remaining butter in a pan over a high heat and fry the rest of the bacon with black pepper for 5 mins. Divide the bacon between all bowls and pour reheated soup. To serve, sprinkle over the pumpkin seeds, dills and drizzle with maple syrup. 
Enjoy!
So that's it for today. I hope it inspired you to buy a pumpkin and carve it yourself!
Have a good week,
Karolina

Sunday treats at Laduree

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Weather is getting colder and colder everyday so there are only two options to spend my Sundays- stay in bed all day watching tv series, movies and youtube with LOTS of treats or go somewhere warm & cozy and have some lunch with people I love. This Sunday turned out as big treat at Laduree. My friend suggested this place and I definitely will suggest to someone else. We actually got some lunch before the desserts in different place as we thought better don't go there hungry. However we ended up with full table of sweetness. Haha. I try to eat as healthy as possible at the moment so that was such a big cheat... but it's Sunday. And on Sundays you can cheat right??? Anyway, if you're hungry you better go and have some food before looking at these pictures. Haha.
Even if we needed to wait for a table around 15 minutes we luckily had beautiful by the window. It was raining on that day so sitting inside with hot drink and the cake was the best you could ask for. I ordered a French toast with some cream, raspberry coulis and fresh raspberries on the side with strawberry milkshake. I don't really know why but I always go for warm desserts. Most of my friends know my obsession for warm sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream... Anyway, moving on. My friend got a pistachio cake, I believe, with coffee and cream. Also both of us took 2 macarons each- vanilla and pistachio for me, rose and vanilla for her. Even though we were too full to finish it and took it home. After everything arrived, our table just looked gorgeous and I was taking pictures literally non stop.








After Laduree me and my other friends went to watch "Girl on the train". I loved the story, actors, atmosphere and everything about this movie. However, one of my friends read book before and wasn't so impressed. I was glad I didn't and enjoyed the movie until the end. If you haven't seen it yet you definitely need to! You'll love it if you liked "Gone girl". I already want to watch it again and concentrate more on the details. So if it's still will be going on I will bring my family to see it after I come back home in the end of the month.
And the last thing I want to share with you is something what happened on the same day while I was traveling by train. So I was just listening music and thinking about whoever knows what until I saw a homeless man standing in the middle and saying something to everyone. I took my earphones out as I wanted to hear what he was saying. I can't really remember exact words but he was just asking for help. It wasn't just asking for money. He was happy if someone could give him some food, drinks or anything people have with them, but don't really need. Everyone in the train was looking to him with cold eyes and didn't say anything. Some of the people just pretended they can't hear or see him. Most of the time I'm one of these people. Ignoring one. But not because I don't care... This time something was different. This homeless man knew how to knock to my heart. So I took my wallet out and gave him all my change I had. After I did it, everyone started looking for something they could give to him. Every single passenger on the train gave either money or either some food- banana, apple, sandwich, sweets. And then I realized how important is to be that first one. I'm not trying to say that if there is no me- no one would give him anything. Not at all. Maybe it would have been someone instead of me. It really made me think that we don't need to be scared to do good things. I know that you will be different, not like everyone else but that's the point. If you will be brave to do something- most of the time people will follow you. And maybe we can create a better world. Just don't wait for someone else to do it. Always start with yourself.
Love you all,
Karolina
