Basics of successful blogging

Hi everyone,
Recently, many of you have asked me in the comments and in the emails, what are my secrets of blogging successfully, gaining many followers and have active readers who find time to comment my posts. 
 Well, first of all, I don't think I'm a successful blogger yet, but I definitely have my opinion about successful blogging. So, since many of you were curious about it, I will let you know what are the steps (in my opinion) that every blogger has to know to become successful.

First or all, get used to the fact that blogging is time consuming. Posting, promoting your posts, commenting other blogs, using social media, analyzing your blogging datas, finding your inspirations for your future posts, an so on..  This will take a lot of time, but still, success will not come in one month or two, it may take years. So, make sure you are ready for this long journey.
Find your niche. It's very important to blog about the subject that you are passionate about and you have something to say about it, not for one month but for years.
 Another thing, you have to ask yourself is that, can your niche become popular (if it's very specific
subject ) and can it make people come to your blog to see your posts a few times a week.
Make you blog look professional and attractive. Also, you should  keep in mind, that too long
posts or posts without some nice photos are not the best assets when it comes to successful blogging.

Promote your blog on social media. Using Google+, Pinterest, Twitter (I recently join Twitter
though), or Facebook to share your blog posts with your friends and followers is a great way to
reach out more people and gain more followers.

Analyze your blogging data. Without knowing your audience, their interest within your blog posts , you will never be able to set your priorities about your blog content.

Hello everyone,

So, Today I want to show you some of my favorite lipsticks at the moment __ Lancome, Elizabeth Arden, Etsee Lauder and L'oreal lipsticks.

Estee Lauder Pure Color EyeShadow Palette

Happy Friday lovelies,
Today, as I mentioned in my recent Instagram post, I am going to share with you my experience about this Estee Lauder eyeshadow palette: I actually got this eyeshadow palette as a part of a gift-with-purchase campaign (but it is  actually, a "Not-For-Sale" variation of Estee Lauder Pure Color EyeShadow Palettes) and felt in love with all the shades from the first minutes of application.

So this palette came with 3 satin, 3 shimmer and 2 matte shades and its own cute eyeshadow brush, which is quite comfortable to use.

Things I never leave home without

Happy Tuesday everyone,
Today I want to show you the things that I never leave home without. 

Estee Lauder DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection cream

 Today I want to show you Estee Lauder DayWear Cream, that I recently got as a part of an Estee Lauder gift-with-purchase campaign  and I was quite amazed with the result:

Lancome __ "Miracle"

Few years ago, I got this luxurious perfume as a gift, and I can't remember , how many times I've repurchased this fragrance, since then.
Lancome "Miracle" is a fresh, spicy floral fragrance  that can  be worn any season except summer, because of its spicy notes, like Ginger and Pepper, that may be overpowering during hot weather.

Lancome Miracle perfume

I love Amber, Musk and Jasmine notes, and Ginger and Pepper notes make this fragrance  truly unique. The bottle is clear  and elegant.
 Every time I'm wearing Miracle, I feel confident and classy. I think this is the best fragrance from Lancome.  (even though,  I'm also crazy for Lancome Hypnose, I still believe that this is the best).

Do you like Miracle as much as I do?  or just  those beautiful memories from the past, makes Miracle amazing to me? 

Lancome Photogenic Lumessence foundation

This Lancome "Photogenic Lumessence Light Mastering and Line-Smoothing Makeup" liquid  foundation is an oil-free, light-to-medium coverage foundation with SPF 15 in it. 
I like that it can last for a few hours without getting greasy. I apply it after my moisturizer and few minutes later I set it with a Lancome pressed powder, the result is amazing __ natural-looking smooth completion for at least 7 hours.


This Lancome foundation doesn't  settle into pores. I even use it as a concealer under my eyes, but here is a thing __ I use my finger (instead of concealer brush) and it looks gorgeous, it completely covers fine lines around my eyes and make them almost invisible.

 This is a great foundation in warmer weather but It is not very hydrating, so I'm not sure it will be perfetc for me in cold weather too, when my skin gets even drier. Other than that, it's a great liquid foundation. 

Travel-size body lotions

I usually use Fragrance-free body lotions on daily bases, But I have to recognize that when I travel, I mostly use perfumed body lotions.
Here are some of my favorite travel-size body lotions:

Thierry Mugler "Angel"  body lotion
Estee Lauder "Modern Muse"  body lotion 
Thierry Mugler "Alien" body lotion
 my absolute favorite Hermes "Eau Des Merveilles" body lotion.

My most re-purchased eye makeup removers

I want to show guys my re-purchased eye makeup removers  that I can't even imagine my skincare 
routine without.
Let me start with this Lancome "Bi-Facil Double-Action" eye makeup remover.
 This one I actually received as a part of a Gift-with-purchase, but I liked it so much that I purchased
a few times, so far. This eye-makeup remover is my all-time favorite. I don't think I'll switch it to some other eye makeup remover sometime soon.

Lancome BI-FACIL eye makeup remover
The way my skin feels after using this remover is amazing, love that feeling __ fresh and moisturized.

Another favorite product is Clinique "Naturally Gentle" eye makeup remover. 

The best thing about it is that you don't need to rinse it off and just imagine girls, how useful this feature can be when you are traveling. 
 Like Lancome Bi-Facil Double Action remover , this one is moisturizing too, but Lancome Bi-Facil is more kind of oily (but not greasy) and this Clinique one is more creamy.

What are your favorite eye makeup removers? Let me know in the comments below. 

When to use Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish powder?

It's been nearly two weeks since I started using this Elizabeth Arden "Flawless Finish Ultra Smooth" Pressed Powder and I can say, this ultra-light formulation really does a good job. I bought the color "light" which perfectly matches with my skin tone and gives a flawless look.
  This Elizabeth Arden Ultra Smooth powder is not for using alone (it doesn't   have enough coverage) but it's great to wear over liquid foundation or concealer to set it, and it's also perfect for touch-ups throughout the day.
 The best thing about this powder is that it absorbs excess shine without looking paste-y and most important to me __ it doesn't sink into pores and fine lines.

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Powder

And of course I have to mention it's design __ extremely glamorous look with its leather sponge, I just wish there was a separate compartment for the sponge. 

You will not smell any strong fragrance in this powder which is also very important when we talk about makeup products.
 So I added this Elizabeth Arden pressed powder to my favorite light silky powder collection.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Purifying Cream Cleanser review

Those of you who checks out my blog regularly  should notice that I post about Elizabeth Arden beauty products quite often, because I really like most of EA products, but the cleanser I'm going to talk about  today, is not among them.

This Ceramide Purifying Cleanser is a cream-based cleanser that suppose to clean all type of skin gently, while soothing, calming it with the uniquely effective Ceramide 3. But in fact, this thick, kind of greasy-feeling cleanser is not for people with dry skin.
This Elizabeth Arden Cleanser has some good sides __ it's fragrance-free and doesn't irritate even dry skin (no redness, no itching ) but it's extremely harsh.

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Gentle Hydrating Cream SPF 15 review

 Finding a nice moisturizer that will not irritate my dry, sensitive skin and at the same time will protect from sun damage is not an easy task. 
 I recently bought this Elizabeth Arden Hydrating Cream with SPF 15, thinking that it would work perfectly for my skin, because I have a night cream and eye cream  from the same line "Visible Difference",  and they are amazing.

So I thought this Gentle Hydrating Cream would work great as well but I am very disappointed.
Every  time I apply this cream it doesn't absorb completely, makes me feel like I'm wearing some mask, and after some time,  my pale skin becomes reddish.
 If I try to apply a liquid foundation on top of this Elizabeth Arden cream, my makeup becomes like white dust. 
I don't know how well it protects my skin from sun damage , but what I definitely know is that this Gentle Hydrating Cream SPF 15 irritates my skin, doesn't absorbs completely and I will never repurchase it. 
Have you used this cream yet? Let me kno in the comment section.

Most repurchased Lancome beauty products

No matter how exciting it is to try out new beauty porducts, there are certain products I always repurchase. Today, I want to show some of my most repurchased Lancome products:

Lancome "Vernis In Love Brilliance Gloss" nail polishes

These Lancome nail polishes go smooth and easy and dry quite fast, which is very important to me. And then, they are long wearing and don't chip. So I often repurchase them.

Maquicomplet  Complete Coverage Concealer

I  love Lancome Maquicomplet  Complete Coverage Concealer. The main reason I repurchase this concealer is that it doesn't crease. I can wear it all day and still it will not settle into the fine lines under my eyes. 

Lancome "Translucence Mattifying Silky Pressed Powder

This silky pressed powder doesn't have enough coverage to be used as a powder foundation but it's perfect to set foundation or be used for touch-ups. It's my go-for powder. 

Dior, Thierry Mugler, Elizabeth Arden, Estee Lauder __my travel-size perfumes

No matter how many full-size beauty products I have, I'm always happy to receive travel-size makeup or skincare samples because they are so space-saver. I can't imagine myself travel with all of those  full-size products that I use every day.
 Here are some of my favorite travel-size perfumes: Thierry Mugler "Alien", Thierry Mugler "Angel", Elizabeth Arden "Untold", Estee Lauder  "Pleasures", Dior  "Miss Dior":

Where to shop for unique souvenirs in Pennsylvania

Last week, I visited Peddler's Village while I was in Pennsylvania. It's a shopping village with 65 unique stores, set on 42 acres of landscaped gardens, and brick walkways.

"Alien" __ intriguing perfume from Thierry Mugler

 I got this Thierry Mugler  "Alien" perfume gift set for Mother's Day and even though I didn't like it at first, now it's one of my favorites.
Thierry Mugler "Alien" is a very unique, powerful perfume with Jasmine, Vanilla, and Transparent 
Amber tones that will definitely get you noticed. You will either love it or hate it because of its strong, woody, and solar-flower scent.

The bottle is just gorgeous and best thing about it is that it's refillable so it can be used as many times as you want.
