Information Pollution and what you can do about it.

With the explosion of the Internet we have achieved so many great stuff but also have created many problems for ourselves. The amount of information we have to go through 24/7 is unbelievable. This is making it impossible for everyone to find what is truly important. So as we are becoming more conscious about our planet and our health I believe it’s important to start doing the same for the information we put out in the world. So what can we do about it?

Social Media Cleansing

If you go through my Instagram you will find not many posts. Granted I don’t post everyday but I still delete posts that I find are irrelevant or unhelpful. I do the same thing with my blog. This isn’t because I am embarrassed about past posts but because I want to create a platform easy to navigate that includes helpful information. Keep in mind this is not about quantity. There is no perfect number of posts. You can have 5 or 5.000 and that’s ok. Just make sure that you are proud for each and every one of those posts and that you want people to see them.

Go on a unfollow spree

Ok this sounds kind of mean but think about how much time you spend on social media. Do you really want to waste your time on things that don’t inspire you, don’t help you or even worse make you feel worse?

Don’t follow back

When someone follows you and shows interest in your content you should try checking out their content too. And if you find that it interests you go ahead and follow them back. But if not skip. I for once wouldn’t want someone to follow me because I followed them. I would much rather have people follow me because they genuinely like my content.

Be mindful

Think before you hit the post button. Don’t spam and always be confident in what you put out.

I hope I don’t offend anyone by this post and again this isn’t about numbers. You are the only person that decides what you want to post. I just hope that this post can raise some awareness about a problem that we don’t realize we are facing.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream- Review 

The long awaited review is FINALLY here. I’ve been trying and testing this cream in the background and I’m now ready to share my thoughts.

I thoroughly enjoyed this cream. I use it as a night cream because during the day I prefer something with SPF which the ultra facial cream did not provide. Other than that it’s amazingly lightweight and it takes just a minute to dry. It does not dry immediately but other creams that dry within seconds didn’t really work for me. It smells nice and clean but the smell is not strong or overpowering. I personally hate putting strong smells on my face but the ultra facial cream is not one of them. Once it dries you do not smell it. Last it provides adequatemoisture without causing my mixed skin to get oily. All in all, it’s not a state of the art, never seen before product but it is a solid, basic skincare product that performs as it should in a very reasonable price. 

What night creams would you suggest I try? Let me know in the comments below!

Holiday Glow! Filmstar Bronze & Glow by Charlotte Tilbury

What is it?
A powder sculpting and highlighting palette.

What does it do?

The sculpting side is great for contouring while the highlighting part is great for highlighting the face and even the eyes.

The packaging.

Charlotte Tilbury’s packaging is my cup of tea. There’s not one product that I didn’t love the packaging. It looks luxurious due to its beautiful gold color and also rocks a huge mirror!

The formula.

Both sides are extremely blendable. It is not intense but you can definitely build it up. It gives a really natural contour and highlight. Also the particular combination is perfect for fair skin. If you have trouble finding a contour palette for fair skin you should definitely check this one out! (I also like using the highlight for setting cream highlighters. It’s so natural it doesn’t look cakey)

Would I recommend it?

Yes! For someone who wants a natural highlight and contour or has a fair skin.

Do you prefer a natural or a bright highlight? Let me know in the comments below!

A Big Screw You to the Chuck Basses and Mr. Bigs of the World

Like many girls, I grew up rooting for Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big to end up together. Every time he turned her down, every time he fell for someone else I felt sad. And then here comes young Chuck. Doing whatever feels right for him. Stomping on Blair’s feelings. And again here comes little me hoping for what I thought was a happy ending. And I got it. They ended up together. But my definition of a happy ending has changed. Two strong, independent women being thrown around by guys afraid of commitment? Don’t get me wrong no one is perfect. Carrie and Blair made a fair share of mistakes. But they stood by their men. And for what? To keep them behind? Is that what we are teaching young women and men? To stick around a person that doesn’t respect them? That doesn’t consider them equals? That a romantic relationship is worth more than your sanity? It doesn’t feel right.

This my personal take on two really famous couples. Sorry for the rant…

Mailing Brands? 3 Key-points to include.

Mailing brands for possible collaborations is hard enough. Including this key points will not only make it easier but also more possible for you and other bloggers to land the best partnerships!

  • Straight to the point subject.

Companies receive an enormous amount of mails every single day. From complaints to propositions for collaborations. Having a straight to the point subject such as “Interest In Collaboration” will help the person who comes across your mail to not only know what to expect but also send it to the right department.

  • Mention how much you like the brand.

Okay do not write ten pages showing your immense love for the brand but maybe in one sentence say that you think the particular brand is great. A bit of flattery never hurt anyone.

  • Credit Bloggers

When mailing brands it is a good idea to mention that you came across this brand thanks to a fellow blogger. This is important because you show the brand that working with bloggers gets them recognition. So by saying a blogger is the reason you found out about the brand you help yourself as well as other bloggers.

Do you guys have any key points you always include when mailing brands? Let me know in the comments below.

Summer feels with a handmade straw bag.

Ok I know it’s almost Christmas buuut I just got this bag and I just cannot wait to tell you all about it.

First of all it gives me so many girl boss feels. It’s amazing for a business situation but not strict and heavy so it’s perfect for the summer months for work as well as a night out. It is so versatile that if you are good with styling you can definitely also incorporate it in a winter outfit.

But what makes this bag as well as everything thing else from VT Thai special is the creating process. According to the site all of the materials used are from local suppliers and natural. Moreover, the bag you will be holding might take more than a month to create and almost a couple of weeks for preparing the material for weaving. It can be made only manually and not by machine so what you will get will definitely be one of a kind.

Every material carries a unique story behind it. For example, according to the site water Hyacinth has been brought by King Rama V to Thailand more than 100 years ago. At first, Water Hyacinth has been planted in the palace and then King Rama V passed it to his royal family in the palace. And then they gave it to Thai people.

All in all, it is an amazing unique bag that carries years of craftsmanship and history behind it and it’s an item that you will keep and wear for years.

5 reasons why you should start your own blog.

A lot of people go into the blogging industry dreaming fame and money. Unfortunately the blogging world is pretty competitive and an easy success is not realistic. But there is way more to blogging than it meets the eye. So here are some realistic reasons why you should create your own blog.

  •  Creating Relationships

Even if its a comment every once in a while or a casual conversation the blogging community from my personal experience is very nice. By creating your blog you get the chance to talk with people, exchange ideas and even make new friends.

  • Improve Your Writing

By writing a lot of posts you can evolve and improve your writing without the anxiousness of grades and strict teachers.

  • Create a Portfolio

If you are interested in the writing, social media, blogging, youtubing, marketing….. etc. industries chances are your potential bosses will want to review your work. Having a blog that you have worked on for a long time ready for submission makes things a lot easier.

  • Attract Opportunities

As you must be aware blogging is a growing field. This means that companies are interested in bloggers and having a blog might get you an invite to a cool event or even a free product to try out. Of course you should not begin blogging just for that but its a great addition to all of the above.

  • Create

Every person is different. But we all have the need to express ourselves. By creating new blogging content you have a nice hobby through which you can show your true self in a fun way.
