Catch of The Month | June ?

img_0987

I have ordered this two skirts way back, but they were delivered in June… I can call this “Getting ready for the summer”, even though it is raining outside and I am sitting here with long sleeves on.

Let’s just go with it…

๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, I will do a little bit of reviewing this skirts, since you really don’t know whatcha buying until it gets here.
I am positively surprised with the short one with heart pattern, because I have won it on an auction and I think it was 5 dollars, something close. I had no idea (because it is not specified in the description) that the skirt has shorts under layer. You can imagine my face when I put it on for the first time haha… ๐Ÿ˜€

For the green one, I knew I wanted something green, on the scale to emerald shade and I got my eye on this one. Costed about 10 dollars – pretty much the most expensive thing I have bought on e-Bay in 4 years I am there. It is good, but I did a lot of calculating and decided that I will order n L size they had. I am an UK M or medium size, but having always been S or small it is hard for me to make that mental shift. I love my M, but Asian measures are extra small. The shirt fits me excellent, but I wanted something more loose… I think I will make some remakes. ๐Ÿ™‚

You can see my obsession with emerald shade of green this summer even on the nail-polish. I love it. It was about 2 dollars.

You can even see on Polyvore my current mind-set… Where is the purple hair? Coming soon… ๐Ÿ™‚

Catch of the month | May

Ooooops. ๐Ÿ˜€

I forgot.

Well, I didn’t buy anything really worth mentioning… I did acquire something for my future DIY project (yaaay) and I remade a dress which is not quite over… It is all going to be featured here when it is done and when I find the time to photograph it, edit the photographs, create a post with which I am satisfied…. So, not so soon. ๐Ÿ˜€ Plus, I have a major thing I am working on and that will be up soon, so I need to focus on that.

Instead of “The catch” I’m gonna do an honest review. Yap.

I have a very thick and normal/oily hair which can be waterless and look all chapped if I don’t use creme from Nivea I found to work awesome for this problem, but always full on volume. Like, I can’t see my face – type of volume. And this winter my hair started to feel bleh, without volume and my scalp became veeery dry. And I got dandruff. I thought it was the dry air in winter, but it continued after… I am not the person who needs 6 types of shampoo, hair-conditioners and serum just to get on with my day, but I take care of my hair. Ok, I could admit not so much right now, but that is because I am in process of waiting for complete hair-over, stuff I do to my hair every once in a while. I have dyed my hair in every color that fits my skin tone and had every haircut from extra long, to pixie short. I have had my natural color for a while now and I want some change. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, back to the problem. Scalp. Pieces of skin were falling off, not just “normal” dandruff and I thought… “Oh-oh.” And went on a quest to find a solution. (I just went to the store and bought shampoo but this makes it sound more important.)

I bought this:

Honest review: It doesn’t smell to my preference but if it does the job I don’t care. When I first started using it I was ecstatic, dandruff 99% gone from first use! And volume back. But now, few weeks later, I feel like it is coming back. :/ I’ll see, i hope it stays like this because it really did help me. Price is also a plus, it was I think 24 kunas, that is… less than 5 dollars. I need stronger shampoo but not too strong, so choosing a new one is not easy for me. When I found the one that does everything I want him to do, I stick with it. For years.

Thank you for reading today about my dandruff problem, I know your day would not be complete without it. โค

Review of vacuum storage bag – as promised.

So… You know those vacuum bags that are sold practically everywhere? I bought one, as I said at one of the recent posts. I was very curious and had some summer clothes I want to store to make more room in my closet. And my bag has arrived this week. And my bag is a piece of crap. For what it supposed to be.ย Actually it is a piece of plastic bag, nothing more. “Yaaay”. I’m so glad I bought only one to try this concept… ๐Ÿ˜•

I don’t know is it the problem in the way I bought it, or the seller, or they all suck? I bought it on e-bay among hundreds of bags just like this one, so do they all suck? If you have bought one please tell me your experience.

Mine looks great – except it looks different thanย the one they put on the picture:

But when I put my clothes inside and vacuum out the air, it only takes few minutes to be exactly like it was before. I could literally watch the air coming back in. From where? – I haven’t got the slightest idea because everything is firmly sealed. So, yeah, you could say I’m disappointed.

Well, had to try. ๐Ÿ˜€
