Summer Haircare: Kérastase Soleil & Kemon Kroma- Light

Hello you guys!

Today I'd like to blog about my favourite summer haircare products!
I've mentioned the Kérastase line as my favourite haircare line many times... 
For summer hair care I  turn to them, always! ;)
Here are my favourites I always recommend to mantain your hair healthy & long even after your summer vacations:

Bain Après- Soleil
Nourishing & caring for your hair.
Use it after a day at the beach or swimming in the sea, to
restore your hair with moisture & shine!

Masque UV Défense Active
Filtre Photo- Defense
Care Index 3
 When UV rays come into contact with the oxygen in the air, free radicals may be formed. These cause the lipids and keratin found in the hair fibre to deteriorate, leaving it dry, dull and prone to colour- fading. The deterioration of the hair fibre is exacerbated by water and humidity.
The more fragile the hair, the greater the damage caused by harmful UV rays. This is the case with colour- treated hair: over time, as it is exposed to the sun, the hair fibre not only becomes dry, dull and prone to colour- fading, but also damaged.
The Recherche Avancée L'Oréal has created a UV filter that has a particular affinity for the hair fibre to help protect colour- treated hair against the drying of its structure by the sun's UV rays.


A technological breakthrough, the Photo- defense filter fixes itself to the hair through electrostatic force. Charged with positive ions, it attaches itself to the hair, particularly to damaged areas of the hair which are highly charged with negative ions. Hair is protected against attacks by harmful UV rays, which cause the hair fibre to deteriorate.

Provides hydrophobic properties, repelling water and humidity.

Help restore the hair and provide softness. Thanks to the intensifying action of the product, the hair fiber is gradually strengthened with each application.

- Hair feels replenished
- Helps boost colour's radiance and shine
- Softness
- Helps protect hair against external aggressors (UV rays, chlorinated or salt water).

Micro- Voile Protecteur
A fine, light & dry mist suitable for
all hair types, especially developed for  a colour treated hair
exposed to the sun.
This product is like a SPF, but for your hair!
COMPLETE SOLEIL PROGRAMME (How to use this line for the best results):

Before and during exposure to the sun, help protect your hair by using Défense Ultime care index 3.

After exposure to the sun, cleanse hair with Bain Après- Soleil for colour- treated hair care index 1,2,3.
Massage through from roots to ends using circular movements. Rinse and towel dry.

Apply 1 to 2 walnut- sized amounts of Masque UV Défense Active concentrate. Gently massage the lengths and ends. Focus on sensitised areas. Leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

While I was in Croatia, I also paid a visit to my hairdresser :)
There is where I bought this colour- enhancing conditioner by Kemon.
My hairdresser works exclusively with Kemon brand, so I wanted to try out this conditioner to see for myself if it's worth all the hype!
It is a good product and it does miracles in detangling your hair!
You only need to apply a small amount of the product, even if you have a very long hair, like I do!
This product is going to last me cca one month and a half, which is pretty good, given the fact that I'm using it twice a week, if not even more often than that!
However, I was expecting this to (words of my hairdresser) "delicately colour my hair/enhance my hair colour" which this product has failed to do.
So I won't be repurchasing it, also because I think it's overpriced for the results it gives.
This product costs somewhere between 20- 30 € (I lost the receipt), and I think that's just too much!

Kemon Kroma- light
Colour enhancing conditioner

I hope you find my review helpful and if you're in a search for a perfect sun haircare line, definitely do try out the Kerastase Soleil :)
You won't be disappointed!

My hair thanx to Kerastase :)

A LITTLE CHIT- CHAT: How are you spending this lovely Sunday?
I was working yesterday until late & today I have to start getting ready for my trip to Croatia as I'm officially on my vacations again! Yeay!!
I'll be off for two weeks, almost 3! Soo excited!
If I manage, I'll squeeze in a few blog posts today that I really wanted to do before my trip!
I won't be uploading new videos during my vacations, but I will film and I'll take my laptop with me so I'll stay connected :)
Maybe I'll throw in some short blog posts, to keep you guys updated!
Remember, my GIVEAWAY is still open, and it probably will be until I return from my vacations (so you have 3 more weeks to enter!!!)
You can enter my giveaway HERE and HERE!

Review/Haul: Catrice Make Up

Hello girls!

Have you ever tried Catrice make up?
If so, do you like this brand? Which one is your favourite product from Catrice?
I usually buy this brand in Croatia, at my local drugstore (for my croatian readers: I can't seem to find it at DM drugstores, so I buy it at Kozmo.)
A few weeks ago, I was here in Italy in Coin department store, and I discovered they had just recently introduced Catrice make up corner to their selection of make up & beauty brands!
I'm really pleased with that news, as I do like Catrice, they're good quality, drugstore price-range, but definitely following the latest trends in the world of make up & beauty!

I was fortunate to receive a gift from NESESER.HR, a croatian make up & beauty dedicated website, that I write my croatian blog for!
They've sent me a few of Catrice make up items and all the colours are so pretty & so wereable for this lovely, warm summer season!
(Well, almost all...I'll show you a colour of one lipstick that I'll definitely have to mix with other lipstick/glosses colour, in order to make it work on me!
Any suggestion on how to wear it will be very welcomed!)

So, here are the goodies sent me:

I really, really love the colour of this lip gloss!

"The bronzed" eye liner has become my signature look
for summer 2011.!

I'm loving the bold colour lipstick trend!
In summer, I opt for less eye make up,
and give more attention to my lips with bright, bold

Ooops! this colour is not very flattering on my pale skin tone!
Any suggestions on how to make this colour more wereable?

The perfect every day, "go-to" blush!
A must-have in any girl's collection!

This champagne colour is the perfect
highlighter, but you can also wear it
as all-over lid colour, or a base!

Beautiful metallic green! Great for subtle, not too heavy, smoky eye!

Affordable Styles from & GIVEAWAY!

Hello girls!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a company
They approached me saying how they like my fashion videos & my blog and asked me if I was willing to do sort of a collaboration with them.
I got to choose the items from their website, to later on present them to you in my reviews.
I was happy to say yes to this collaboration, because when I saw their website & their offer, I immediately knew this is something I'm going to like! :)
They sell everything from shoes, bags, accessories, women, men and kids fashion!
They're often updated with new arrivals & latest trends and...most exciting of all, the prices are VERY affordable, plus, there are no minimum orders, so you can spend as little, or as much as you want!
They ship worldwide, for the shipping cost to your destination, check out their website.

I spent hours browsing through their website, trying to pick out my personal favourites!
It wasn't an easy thing to do! :)

At last, this is what I've chosen:

1.)Leopard Dropped Short Sleeve Chiffon Blouse 5.41 $

2.) French Style Lace Long Blouse White 7.03$

3.) Beauty Flower- Shaped Retro Ring 2.22 $

To see how I styled these items, check out my VIDEO!

French style lace long blouse


& Now, the exciting part!!!

I've decided to host a little giveaway for you guys, as a sign of my love & appreciation of the amazing support you guys have been giving me!
It's one thing to talk about how great a company is, and another thing is to actually give to a couple of you, the possibility to actually see that for yourself!
I feel so lucky that companies are contacting me, asking me for a collaboration and I'm aware this wouldn't be possible without your support!
That's why I've decided to give something back, to you, my lovely audience :)
I want to make clear that I hadn't discussed this giveaway with the company, these items were meant for me to keep.
But, in the spur of the moment, while I was filming a video, it kind of came naturally to me, to organize this giveaway and hopefully, to make two of you smile :)

So, yes, there are going to be TWO winners!
I'm giving away two blouses, the leopard print one, and the white/lace one.

The Rules:
(Let's keep things simple!)
- Write me a comment saying which one of these blouses would you like to win and how would you style it!
- You can enter as many times as you want (the more times you enter, the better are the chances you'll win)
- Open internationally, for all my subscribers
- If you're underage, please ask your parents permission to enter my giveaway!
- You can enter with comments on my Youtube channel, under my video, or here, in the comments section under this post (or both!)
- I will choose a random winner(s) and notify you personally!

Have I left anything out?
If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me :)

Have a lovely day & enter in many!
Good luck to you all!
