Full circle – influencer edition and the disappointment

Full circle – influencer edition and the disappointment

Hi my Readers

Today, a video has been circling the web and it is about influencers and their false claims.
The particular video is about influencer that shows mascara and some of her colleagues are calling her out on it because she looks like she is using false lashes. The video is sponsored and it caught the eyes of the people too.

I have stopped following as much as I used to and even if I do, I tend to not get involved too much, but this one was interesting to me because the people who jumped to defend her, mentioned big corporations and how the influensers or the people weren’t calling them out on it. I have seen influensers and many people talking about that subject so I know that’s not true, but what struck me the most is that people defend something that influencers have made influencers in the first place – their reviews and their honesty because people were tired of the big corporations lying and spending so much on marketing and tricking people into buying things that are far from that glitzy commercial that has played over and over again.

The disapointment comes because the whole point of influencers is to prove the marketing side of the big companies that are wrong. People started trusting influencers because they were honest with their reviews and once they start to seem dishonest, then it all goes downhill from there.

I am very pleased to see that other colleagues and influensers have cast a light and hopefully it will be a lesson to everyone – the consumer as well because consumers and potential consumers have the biggest power when it comes to this.

Just let’s not cancel people. Mistake is a mistake. If we don’t see improvements after they have been exposed, only then we can move toward canceling. Let’s leave that thing in the past, along with the pandemic.

Wishing you a good one,

Very peri bye to the Pantone color of 2022

Very peri bye to the Pantone color of 2022

Hi my readers

As we are entering the new year, I would like to wish you all well, good health and much happiness.

Before I say bye to the color of the year of 2022, I have to say that that was kind of one of my favourite colors. As you may even notice is one of the color in the symbol to my blog. I was especially happy to learn that Pantone decided to choose that color (and the shades around it) because I already had everythitn that includes that color…including my hair.

I will share some pictures from the color (and the shades around it) and let me tell ya, this is just a glimpse of everything lilac, purple, very peri that I have in my collection 🙂 You might catch a glimpse of the color of the year of 2023 as it is a color that really suits me and luckily I like it too 😀

Had a surprise visitor for the last few items so I decided to leave this photo anyway 🙂

Don’t worry, the shoes are indoor shoes that I use for workout, they are very clean, I made sure of me 😀

This color will surely stay, but we will be welcoming the new one with open arms, since, as I said (and you will see) is the colour that I wear so often.

Have a good one

Matcha Latte – DM’s matcha latte

Matcha Latte – DM’s matcha latte

Hi my Readers 🙂

For a while I wanted to try how does a matcha taste. I imagined it would be a lot like other leavy things taste like but it became so popular for a while, that I decided to try it.
Living where I live, not many options were available. Even the ones that were – weren’t trustworthy. For a while I have forgotten about the idea of matcha and matcha latte but one day I was looking through the food section in DM and saw this.

Grüner tee matcha latte contains 6 packets of 12 grams of mixed powders.

The ingredients are listed as:

And the outside of the packaging looks like this


It tastes more like green tea but with touches of artificial milk. It contains sugar so if you like sugar, you have full thing that you can take away with you to work, travelling or just to keep it with you just in case.

I personally prefer if this things do not contain sugar because that way I can choose for myself whether I want to add it or not.

Do you drink matcha or have you tried matcha latte? I would like to compare the experiences and if it is better to try it raw (I think that raw is always better).

Until the next time

Have a nice start of the week and remember to do something good today 🙂


Linda Hallberg Cosmetics being stolen from


Hi my Readers 🙂

A week or so ago I’ve watched a instagram video about Linda’s brand being stolen from. They explained that this was their third time happening and at this point they are thriving. I would assume so because 3 times is a lot!

So I wanted to do my little thing and inform you that if you see some illegally sold cosmetics, please ignore or better yet – report them to Linda’s team.

I will link the video so you can see for yourself and help a small company get back to their feet.


Please please help us with the police investigation by sharing this, by sending us a DM with suspicious pictures or email to and mark the email with ”suspicious products” If you see or hear anything about the Infinity Palette.
Thank you again for your endless support and love! We need you now more than ever ❤️
Much love from the whole @lindahallbergcosmetics team


Wishing you a great start of the week 🙂

Blendiful and dirty underwear?


Hi my Readers 🙂

I was recently watching some reviews about the new product of Tati Beauty – blendiful. In those, like Tati recommended, people were testing the durability of the sponge and how will it hold if it is washed in a laundry bag and then in the washing machine.

Many (if not all) of the sponges were coming out still „dirty“ and with product on them. And most of them were washed almost immediately after use. Then it hit me – if those sponges are not washed well, what is happening to our underwear? Most of the underwear is recommended to be washed it lower temp and with delicate option on the washing machine.

If the sponges aren’t clean, does that mean that the underwear is not clean as well?

And you know what, that might be the case.

In the older days (heck, even now in the rural places), people used to boil their underwear, later, they ironed it on a high temperature and I am sure they had less problems that people nowadays.

Here is why I think that:

they boiled it on a high temperature    VS.    the underwear nowadays can’t handle such a high temperature (even if it did, the elastic will be ruined) 

they ironed it    VS.    who has time for that 

they put only little detergent    VS.    detergent, fabric softener, perfumed detergent & many more 

The underwear obviously goes on out most delicate part of our body and we are treating it only as a decorative piece of fabric. We are even leaving it for a few days before we do our laundry…….yeah I’m not going to explain how bad this is. I’m sure you already have the idea.


Many say: but hand washing is not the same as machine washing. It is better with a washing machine.

And you know what, I think they are right but instead of being right about the part about the machine, they are right about the hand washing.

What I do Is wash it really good with hot water and detergent right when take them off so I can avoid leaving them (even for a day) before I do the laundry. Granted, I might use much more detergent that I really want to on such an important thing as underwear but I take comfort in ruining them under ruining water (sorry planet) until I am confident that they are soapless 😀

If anyone has some advice, I would like to read them and consider them because after i realized this about our underwear I was left speechless of how the modern time changed the way we „handle“ our hygiene…but for the worse. We are taking daily showers (by the way, I encourage you to read THIS POST about that subject), but how clean really is our underwear when we say „I take daily showers and put clean underwear“?


Hope you think about this the next time you do your laundry.

Wishing you a happy weekend,

Nails of the week


Hi my Readers 🙂

If you follow me, you are already familiar that I take pictures of my nails right before I am about to wipe them down. Just like in Glitter over regular nail polish – nails before I remove the polish 😀  and Theme color I like these days and Festive nails 🙂 and many more. Just search for „nails“ in the search button on the side of the blog post and you’ll see 😀

This time is not different. And I even tried them to fix them a little bit so they look somewhat presentable. I really liked the design especially because I did them after a long time not wearing nail polish so here they are 🙂


Have a nice one

Media milking the drama about YouTubers


Hy Readers

Up until 2-3 days ago, media didn’t care about YouTube and the drama surrounding it. It seems really hypocritical to care about them now when there are only bad things and incidents involved. Do people really care only about the bad things?

Where was this media writing about this people when they were doing some good things. They didn’t care! 

New York Times writing about some drama. E! news reporting on their news about this too. It is really interesting, especially because media didn’t care to write about these people and their good stuff up until they were involved in a drama and incidents so people really don’t know who they are writing about.

You have this HUGE audience, and instead of using it for good, you are using it to talk about only about the negative things! FOR CLICKS!

I could care less, but spreading only negative vibes and whet it is about bad things and ignoring everything good they’ve done only to get those clicks, that is not ok!

How do you feel about this?

Have a nice day,

and remember to do something good 🙂

The liking is over. The trolls are coming


Hi Readers 🙂

This topic is just too good to let go of. I mean, when there is something happening, it is only natural to be curious about it. Lately the beauty community was shaking over the Tati speaking up about James Charles. And with good reason. If you know to know more about the last fail that James Charles has done – Line up for the $500 ticket; James Charles did an oopsie  And if you want to know about the actual drama – Someone can make your career. That same someone can also break it.

There were the haters, the leechers, the memes and now we are getting to the trolling part. But by the time I post this, it will be all about Tati. It is already beginning. Of course she is going to be dragged. They are going to pick everybody, like it is expected form one person to sweep up the mess that is created over the years.

They say that she only calls them out when they’ve done something to her personally. Well I don’t see anyone else doing something about it, so why should she do that alone?

They expect one person to fix the „beauty community“ while everybody else is staying silent because was too afraid it will ruin relationships and are hypocrites? That is overreaching.

Also, YouTube has removed Tati’s video from the trending page. Doesn’t surprise me after PewDiePie being constantly removed from there. „Good job“ YouTube.

Please be civil about all of this. Bullying is not karma. 

Here is a tweet that I’ve come across and it actually has a good point:


If you want to read about this subject, please head over to – #KissAndMakeup anti-bullying campaign It may help.

As I said in THIS POST, I am in no way justifying his behavior, but there has to be limit.

Placing screenshots from a person that was only flerting with you, or just wanted to be sweet and polite afterwards because you rejected him and he didn’t know how to act, is not something you should tweet.
And only persons cheering that behavior is probably teenagers. As I saw the screenshots, he was only flirting. And in return he got screenshots. For what? To milk some attention out of it! NOT COOL!
There is nothing wrong with flirting. You could feel uncomfortable if you are not into it, but screenshots so you can milk some attention out of it…… NO!

People forgot how to interact and what is interaction. 


Bullying is not karma.png

Please remember this before go and attack someone you know only from the interneta dn feed to the cyber – bullying. Goes for James Charles AND for Tati.
Bullying is a serious subject! Don’t feed the monster that it is!

Have a nice one

Someone can make your career. That same someone can also break it


Hey Readers 🙂

I am not a gossip blog, neither was interested in the drama part of youtube. But some things are just too big to be left alone.

As the tiltle states, someone can make your career. But if you take it for granted and feel entitled? That same one can also break it.

Tati Westbrook is very well known and loved person on YouTube. It is funny how we focus on the bad, when we can focus on the good and writing this, I wanted to only mention her and write few words. But instead, I’m making a difference and making nice people the center of attention. Also, It is funny how we can think of so many unkind words but when it comes to compliments – we all look past them. So the focus on this post is: she has really pleasant voice, she is kind, understanding, smart and maybe more but from what is translated, as viewer – that is the summation. She has her own company – Halo Beauty. She knows how to compose a sentence without using the beauty slang and annoy half of the population 😀 OK, that was my lame attempt of a dad joke, but if you go on her channel, you can witness better ones 😀 Moving on…

She has such an impact and it is respected that with only one video, was able to stir up so much and make people think of their decisions.


I feel sorry for James Chalres at this moment because he is still a teenager that can’t handle everything that he is served with. I watched a video of him how lost he was on the red carpet of the Met Gala and even though he is the villain now, the immaturity got the best of him. It’s somewhat similar to a post that I wrote about bullying. If you care to read that – just click here and it will take you to that post #KissAndMakeup anti-bullying campaign. Here is an excerpt:

It’s possible that the anger that a bully contents is not towards those people and they are not the source to the „bullys“ problem. That „bully“ is a person too and is pouring and focusing his or her anger towards the wrong person. Living with all this technology is easier to become angry and to focus that anger towards wrong people and things.

I am in no way justifying his behavior, but am stating the possibilities. If fact, just 2 days ago I wrote about his events – Line up for the $500 ticket; James Charles did an oopsie.

This teaches us something very important: no matter how big you are – kindness always prevails!

Until my next blabber…

Remember to do something good.

Have a nice weekend 🙂

Line up for the $500 ticket; James Charles did an oopsie


Hi my Readers 🙂

This is a „delicate“ subject in the „beauty community“. Apart from me being fed up with all the drama, canceling and shadyness going on, being frank and stating honest opinions about anything enabled individuals to do whatever, and sometimes – not that nice.

Update: Tati speaks up about James Charles  – Someone can make your career. That same someone can also break it


Here it is: honesty.

When I have time, I watch interesting content on YouTube. A while ago, James Charles was coming up with some interesting ideas for videos. I wasn’t watching his content before, but I was intrigued now. I watched a few videos and I liked them. After that, I continued exploring other channels.

But, lately, something jumped up in my twitter feed: James Charles trowing something that will cost A LOT of money. At first, I thought this was just vultures over exaggerating things as usual. Boi was I wrong….. $500 for a ticket to something from someone that is actually something from everything but at the end – nothing in particular. I mean, makeup – artist? No (he is talented and self taught). Clothing designer? No. Singer? No. Especially because he doesn’t have a single song that is his. For what is he expecting people to buy this tickets? Even the least expensive one is way too much!

If you have read some of my content, you’d know how low the salaries in the country that I am coming from are. I mean, I cant even grasp that people are just buying $60 palettes without a as much as a blink of an eye(lid hehe). So this was even worst. I mean, even in well developed countries this amount is half, 2 thirds of a salary…

I can’t think of an excuse for this.

It’s all good, until it is way too expensive to afford a simple concerts to ACTUAL musicians. Is so bad that in comparison to the past, the prices to tickets has go so much that it is getting ridiculous.

I’m going to add some examples to tickets. Granted, these are without calculated inflation, but still. So many bands and quality in one place!



And if you google tickets from before this crazyness, you’ll see what I am writing about.

Those were my 2 – 3 thoughts. What are yours?

Have a nice one 🙂
