Avon True Perfectly Matte lipsticks: Ruby Kiss, Rouged Perfection, Rose Awakening, Pink Passion

avon-true-perfectly-matte-lipsticks

Štiri šminke, štiri različne barve, štirje čudoviti videzi. Avonove True Perfectly Matte šminke so se mi priljubile v trenutku, ko sem preizkusila prvo. Danes moja zbirka obsega štiri različne odtenke, ki jih uporabljam ob različnih priložnostih. Vse štiri so resnično pigmentirane in se nanašajo z lahkoto. Kot že samo ime pove, imajo vse mat zaključek, h kateremu pa spada tudi dostojna obstojnost. Ustnic mi ne izsušijo in res jih z veseljem uporabljam in vsekakor priporočam nakup! Pa si oglejmo moje odtenke:
Four lipsticks, four different colours, four wonderfull looks. Avon's True Perfectly Matte lipsticks have found their way to my heart the moment I tried the first one. Today my collection consist of four different shades, that I wear on different occasions. All four are truly pigmented and are easily applied. Like the name itself states, they all have matte finish and good staying power. They don't dry out my lips and I happily use them and absolutely recommend purchase! Let's see which shades I have:

Bottega Verde in Maribor


Bottega Verde je italijanska znamka naravne kozmetike, ki je pred kratkim odprla novo trgovino v mojem mestu - Mariboru. Seveda me je radovednost premagala in šla sem si jo ogledat. In nisem bila razočarana. Vse, od izdelkov za nego kože do ličil, od dišav do izdelkov za moške, je bilo lično zloženo na poličkah in sama trgovina je dajala vtis urejenosti in je zelo lepa. Seveda sem morala posneti nekaj fotografij za vas ;)
Bottega Verde is an Italian natural beauty company that recently opened new shop in my home town - Maribor. The curriosity got the better of me and I went to check it out. I wasn't dissapointed. Everything, from skin care to make up, from fragnance to sun care and even men's care, was neatly organised on the shelves and the store itself gave me an impression of tidiness and it was also really pretty. I also took some photos for you ;)


Bottega Verde lahko v Sloveniji kupimo tudi v njihovi spletni prodajalni, sama pa sem pristaš ogledovanja in preizkušanja kozmetike v živo. Posebej me je navdušila prijazna prodajalka Katja, ki je z mano poklepetala, mi trgovinico razkazala, za konec pa mi v roke stisnila še majhen paketek, da njihove izdelke tudi preizkusim.
You can buy Bottega verde's products also online, but I do prefer to see and test the products in person. I was especially impressed by the nice seller Katja. We shared a chat and she showed me around, introduced the products to me and in the end she gave a little package for me to get to know their products better.


A imate na listi želja že kak njihov izdelek? Sama se s to znamko komaj spoznavam in še nimam nagledanih izdelkov, ampak kolikor sem si jih uspela ogledati in spoznati vem, da jih bom, ko jih dodobra spoznam, želela preizkusiti kar nekaj.
Do you have any of their products on your wish list? I've only gotten to know this brand and I don't have any products on my list, but as far as I could see and learn,, I know there is a lot of products I will want to test once I get to know them.

When will you have kids?

We are going to get a little bit personal today. A topic that is getiing on my nerves for quite a while now and I want to discuss it with all of you.
I am 27 years old in a happy, long term relationship. Things are great between us, we have a house and both of us have a job. Great, right? Except for a few years now already people have felt the need to congratulate us for our birthdays, new year, or any other congratulations-worthy event with the words:

"We hope we'll soon hear a cradle."

Right now, there's a hole bunch of my friends with babies on the way - don't get me wrong, I am super happy for them and I adore babies - and it seems everyone thinks they have a right to look at me and comment about me not having a baby yet. 

WHY do people think it's okay to push into somebody's life and ask personal questions about their LIFE decidions and body? It's not only annoying to hear the same thing over and over again, but it is also a bit rude and not to mention disrespectful.

Let me get something straight:
YES, I want a baby (or more, who knows)

But I will have them when I (and my partner) will feel it's a good time and we'll decide we are ready, we want a baby and that's that! It is, in the end, our life and it will, let's be honest, affect the way we are living. Not having a baby when everyone else does isn't a bad thing!

On the other hand, a thing NOBODY ever thinks about - what if a person you so persistently ask about babies all the time CANNOT have babies? And every question, remark or just a comment you make, wounds more deeply than you imagined?

I feel like people nowadays think having babies is an age apropriate thing, which is, in my opinion, not.

To have a baby should be a conscious decision, when BOTH partners are ready, when they have some place to have the baby and most important - WHEN THEY DECIDE TOO - without presure!
Haha =) Have you ever felt that people around you are pressuring into something that is entirely your decision, but they don't seem to get it? Let me know in the comment, so we can discus it further ;)

Thank you if you read my rant this far, I just had to get it out of my system!

Xoxo,
A.
