Botanic garden

Hello,

It`s been a while since I posted something on my blog. It was for a long time not on my priority list. Not because I didn't wanted, it is just because big and important things are happening in my life.
I came back in Belgium before a few weeks, I'm happy to be here again. I have a lot of busy schedules every day, a lot of obligations but soon you will discover more about my daily life here.

Today I'm taking you in one of Antwerp's little treasures: the botanic garden. One of my favorite places in Antwerp. The location of the botanic garden is situated in a vivid an interesting area. You really have feeling that u are in Paris. In this beautiful street you can find many interesting antique shops. If you are coming here, visit this place you will like it I'm sure.

Oh that beautiful nature

Hello,

It was one sunny and relaxed Saturday we spent in nature, beautiful nature.
I realized that most of us always like to show photos from our travels, from some places not seen before which we consider so beautiful. Mostly forgetting that we are surrounded with the same beauty every day. It is weird that we visit this places just when we have guests, to show them our nice places.

Often we say oh it is boring here, we don`t have so much things to show but in the end we are not aware what we have, how much nice places are around us, pure nature for relaxing and enjoying.
This place is called Krupa na Vrbasu, it is 28 km distance from Banja Luka. Here you can see beautiful waterfalls of river Vrbas.
Oh now I know how I will miss this beautiful places and all nice places around my town.

My Birthday


Hello,

Yesterday it was my 25th birthday. If you ask me, I have the feeling I'm getting old. But like most People say it is important how you feel, not what the age is on your ID.  I must confess that I'm just scared of becoming older. But in the current stage of my life I'm very satisfied. I was always surrounded with people I love, I did what I wanted and liked, and I'm satisfied with the little thing in life.

In this photos I'm showing you the atmosphere from yesterday.  I had marvelous day, nice food, lovely walks, and most important I had my fiancé with me, and that was my best Birthday gift ever and he made this day so special.

Here you can see the nice places in my town with tasty food, and now when I see it I know I will miss my town because soon I m moving to Belgium.

Again here

Hello,
I m here again after long time, I was on vacation and I took rest from everything, it was just relaxing time, enjoying and charging my batteries for busy period.
I was searching for some photos and found this. We took it long time ago, like test photos for Das Glück, I wrote about them here, I really like this combination red with petroleum green, and it is made from really good quality fabric.

Photos were taken in my favorite place, Kasteel van Brasschaat, as well as this post.

Vintage portraits



Hello,
Long time I ago I fell in love with vintage portraits, especially old black one white, what really got me was simplicity of that photos but in the same that unique beauty.
In my old family albums I found a lot of these photos, and I could spend hours, drinking tea and flip through albums.

I said to myself I must have that photos and finally we found time to do something like that in studio, but I did`t had time to post them. 

I was thinking to do flapper look or 50`s, but I chose something in between, little more accent on eyes but not so much as flapper look.

Today I will not write so much, I m leaving you with photos.

How I do my eyebrows-Step by step

Hello,
Today here is a little different post. I like to do make up posts too, just they are not so easy for me sometimes, I still need to learn how to take photos for tutorials.

In this post I will show you how I do my eyebrows, it is really easy and quick tutorial. 

As you know every day I have classic 50`s pin up make up look which includes really defined eyebrows.

This eyebrow pencil I m using really long time and I m satisfied, but some weeks ago I saw MAC fluid line brow gel creme and it is on my list just to come back in Belgium. 

What I m using.


1. eyebrow brush
      2. thick angled brush
    3. thin angled brush
                      4. MAC Prolongwear concealer 
              5. Artdeco eyebrow pencil

Let`s get started.

Here are my natural eyebrows, they are far a way from perfect, I would like to have denser eyebrows.


STEP 1: Take your eyebrow brush and comb your eyebrow.


STEP 2: With eyebrow pencil I m making stroke at the bottom of my eyebrow, following the shape of eyebrow.

STEP 3: The same I m doing on the top of my eyebrow.

STEP 4: I m using thicker angled brush to blend all together.

STEP 5: I m taking concealer and thin angle brush and putting around my eyebrow. Concealer is going to make eyebrows look freshly done and defined.

STEP 6: Blend your concealer and you are done. Quickly and easy!



I hope you liked this quick tutorial, but I must say in live they look more nice and from normal distance :).

If you want some other make up tutorial or cosmetic post, just write me your wishes in comments.

Thank you.
