Never Ever Ever

Hello lovelies. Hope you are having a great day. It is a holiday tomorrow in Latvia, so yes I am having an awesome day. 

I found out about this link up from Ange of Hairspray and High Heels and thought it would be fun to do it as well. I am excited to join in with this bright idea by the lovely host Neely from A Complete Waste of Makeup for this one day only link up.

So here are a few things you will never hear me say. I know I always say never say never because as time goes on people change. But these are things you will not hear me say at least in the nearest future.

- I don't want any more clothes
- I want to drink whisky/ brandy
- I don't like blogging
- I want to go for another degree
- I don't like Pretty Little Liars/ Gossip girl/ Carrie Diaries
- I can totally live in black and white
- Would you like to take away all of my chocolate?
- I don't like wearing makeup
- Cutting my hair was the best decision ever!
- Pink is a boring colour.
- Walking around with chipped nails is absolutely gorgeous.

Well, that's all I could remember now. Let me know with which points you agree in the comments or make your own post and link up here.


Have a fab week everyone!

The Friendly Bunch Blog Hop {#10}

Hello my darlings, I hope you had a great sunny weekend. I did because hubby and I had our 4 year Anniversary of meeting and becoming a couple. It was such a good sunny day yesterday and nothing could ruin it.

Today, I am sharing some more wise words with you. Whenever something doesn't happen exactly the way you want it to, think of it as a lesson not as failure. I believe in destiny and even though we can impact on it, sometimes it just has to be the way it was supposed to be. I hope you always remember this when something goes wrong.

I also wanted to let you know that I will be taking co-hosts for this blog hop, so if you are interested in joining in, email me at cherryfashionblog@gmail.com.

Best sales to shop {Part 1}

Hello darlings! I hope you are doing well today and it is sunny where you are. Summer is getting closer and we all want to look lovely which means shopping for a lot of us. So today I was thinking it would be great to have a place where you can find out about all the different amazing sales currently available. We all like to have lots of nice things but most of us have a tight budget therefore we love to shop sales in order to save a penny here and there. So I decided to make a series of posts on all the best sales to shop for trendy summer items.
     

Sale!, Where to shop sales items, Rarelondon sale, Rarelondon, Where to shop, Sales items, Shopping on a budget

I am starting off these series of posts with a store which I like a lot and a while back made my first purchase. I know a lot of people from the UK might be like "what?! Just your first purchase?!" and my answer is yes. Living in Latvia, I like to always consider how much international shipping costs before looking at the things I like so I don't get disappointed.

Rare London is a UK based store which offers on trend pieces and has quite a number of items in their sale at the moment. From casual blouses, blazers or dresses to party items available at very affordable prices. This sale has been on for a while now and every once in a while I find new pieces being added which always makes me check back for items I might like.

I would really love to know what you think about my idea. I do hope you find some amazing items for yourself like I did. If you like this idea and want to see more posts like this, let me know and check back for other amazing sales which I will be letting you know about.


Have fun shopping and saving!

The Friendly Bunch Blog Hop {#8}

Hello my darlings. I hope you had a fab weekend. Mine was great as I finally gave in my internship report and got to relax without worrying about a thing. It felt absolutely amazing. Now it's back to work and I just wanted to share something with you as always. I would really love for you all to enter in this hop and also spread the word as a lot of bloggers love finding new blogs to follow. 

This time I decided to share about second chances. Yes, I think it is important to give someone a second chance, but not everyone deserves it as they just end up ruining it like the 1st one. But still, I like to be optimistic and think that just because someone messed up once doesn't always mean that is who he/ she is and will mess up again. So let's be open hearted and give them the benefit of the doubt.

Review: Bourjois Express Eye Makeup Remover

Hello my lovely readers, I hope you are having a great sunny day and it is getting warmer where you are. If not, then I will be your sun for now. A long while ago {or so it seems}, I went to get a few things at the store and ended up getting this as a gift with my purchase. I have been using it everyday since then and thought it was finally time to tell you what I think about it.

Bourjois Express Eye Makeup Remover, Bourjois Makeup Remover Review, Express Eye Makeup Remover Review
Bourjois Express Eye Makeup Remover, Bourjois Makeup Remover Review, Express Eye Makeup Remover Review, 2 phased makeup remover
The packaging is very simple and well it should be; it is just makeup remover. I really like the fact that it has the circle on the top as this always helps me open it up fast. I cannot stand having to spend a long time each night opening a bottle. The price is about € 12 which is quite a lot in my opinion since we have other options, so glad I got it for free.

The product itself comes in 2 phases. Firstly, the oil phase which is the blue part on top. This helps to remove all the makeup including waterproof makeup. Secondly, the water phase which leaves the skin feeling fresh. Basically this is where this little bottle and I have a disagreement. I have oily skin which makes cleaning off my makeup with oil feel absolutely weird {in my honest opinion}. Therefore what I do is flip the bottle quickly in order to get the 2nd phase and that's what I use every night. Of course a little bit of oil may still be on the cleansing pad but not as much anyway. 

It cleans off all my makeup and my skin does feel fresh after it. Therefore I have nothing against the product, it's just that personally I would have preferred to just have the 2nd phase {But that's just me}. I haven't had any breakouts because of this product and that feels great.

So for the question on if I would repurchase or not, I would most likely say no and look for something which doesn't have an oil phase.

Quick Summary:
Likes: The cover, removes waterproof makeup
Dislikes: Oil phase
Verdict: No

The Friendly Bunch Blog Hop {#7}

Hello lovelies and welcome back from another weekend. I hope you had a nice time. I did because it finally got warm and sunny for a bit in Latvia.

Today I felt that I should share something that is important to all of us. People judge because it is easier to judge others than judging themselves. But the truth is, you have no idea why that person is acting or doing the things he/she is doing and you have no idea what he/she has been through. Therefore you have absolutely no right to judge their actions.

Review: Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

Hello beauties, I hope you all had some fun pranking family and friends on the 1st of April. Today I am bringing you a review of a new eyeliner I am now using. I bought this at a drugstore when I went out last week. As it always is, I went in because I needed to get the mineral powder which I am currently using and told myself I wouldn't spend much. Turned out, they had a discount on almost all the items in the store and when I saw this gel liner I just had to have it.

See the thing with me and liners is I am really bad at it. My lashes are really curly and putting on liquid eyeliner is just a big mess {like a kid with watercolours}. So once I found out about the gel liners, I knew this might just be one of my favourite products.

Because I needed an everyday shade, I went for 'Intense Black'. This gel liner comes in a nice packaging and an even better jar. Although glass makeup jars aren't my favourite items as I tend to be a bit clumsy sometimes, I could not help but wow when I saw the jar inside. I absolutely love the way it looks and the matte finish just makes it even. 

The gel eyeliner comes with a normal sized brush which is just the perfect shade. It allows me make thick lines as well as really thin lines {which I never thought was possible}. I absolutely love the brush and have been using this gel eyeliner ever since I got it. With the discount this product cost me approx €9 which in my opinion isn't bad since I get to use it for minimum a month. The packaging says 24 hours wear. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you if it lasts all 24 hours as I have not gone that long with makeup on, but I can definitely tell you it has 15 hours of staying on which means it lasts me all day while I am out.

I don't have any bad reactions or itching or anything from this product. Actually I have nothing bad to say about this product. 

I really do love this gel liner and I think it might just become a holy grail product of mine. Of course if someone could point me in the direction of something cheaper but as great I will definitely try that out too. Who doesn't like to save a penny here and there?! But for now, I am so happy with it and would really suggest trying it out for those who cannot just get the hang of a liquid liner.

Quick Summary
Likes: Packaging, brush inside
Dislikes: 
Verdict: Definitely repurchasing

Have you tried this gel eyeliner? Which is your favourite gel liner?
