Blogging 101 – annie’s beauty… Tricks & Tips

Tags

, , , , ,


It’s been over two years since I first started blogging! I was as fresh and raw as a green apple in the apple tree! I knew nothing about it… About cameras and their features, about SEO, domains, statistics, broken links, media kits and whatnot… Everything I’ve learned, I’ve learned on my own, observing other blogs, and “stealing” their methods, adapting them to my own needs!

Today I want to share what I’ve learned this far with you and hopefully you’ll find this useful! 

[ TAKE NOTE! I’m no pro, these are only suggestions based on my own experience, to be followed if/when wanted/needed! ]

So, let’s see! Tricks and tips for improving your blog…

1) STOP asking people to follow your blog! Nobody wants to be forced into doing anything! This community is supportive especially with new bloggers anyway, so there’s no need to ask for more support when you’re already getting it for free…
2) FOLLOW BLOGS and BE CONSTANT in leaving likes and comments on their posts! A returning reader will receive the same treatment he offers!
3) constantly IMPROVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY! It’s the only “place” where you can be as creative as you can, so don’t waste that opportunity on bad lighting and poor composition!
4) HAVE A CLEAR, CLEAN, COHERENT and COHESIVE exprimation! Although they always happen, grammar mistakes and misspellings are’t the prettiest! And such mistakes will definitely prevent your posts from showing up in searching engines lists… You know, the good old Google and its mates… Especially a badly written title, or a long one!… Also, make sure you fit your ideas in no more than 500 words, if possible… More gets slightly boring, and most readers cross-read your posts anyway!
5) DON’T use too many links; avoid as much as you can broken links, unspecified domains, pages that give error codes, etc. …
6) DON’T cling on to numbers! You’ll miss all the fun!
7) BE CREATIVE with your posts! Try to diversify your content but make sure you remain faithful to your niche!
8) SET your TARGETS before you even start blogging: what you’re writing about ( choose carefully your niche ), who you’re addressing to, the age of those you want to read your posts ( and all such factors ) and stick to that! You can’t write today about the most expensive lipstick on the planet and about diswashing machines the next day!… You know what I mean?!
9) DON’T SPAM the inboxes of brands with emails asking for free stuff, collaborations, especially paid ones… Be patient and constant with your posts and they will reach you, you’ll see!
10) POST REGULARLY and at least 2 to 3 times a week! If you have not that much time, use the Scheduling feature that comes for free with our platform, WordPress… Like that you can take your photos and write posts whenever you can, schedule them and they will go up whenever it suits you… Changes into the scheduling program can be done at any time!

And a BONUS no 11) and the most important – ENJOY WHAT YOU DO! It will show up in your posts even if you don’t put a lot of effort into!

This is what worked for me! I’m waiting for your suggestions in the comments below!

As always, thanks for reading, Beautiful…

And see you soon!

xx, Annie

#HEALTH: annie’s beauty… Tricks & Tips on How To Stay Fit and Motivated

HEALTH annie's beauty... Tricks & Tips for Staying Fit and Motivated

Summer is just around the corner ( hopefully!? ) and around this time of the year is when I find my motivation to get fit, again… Not because I need a beach/bikini body for the next hot months, but simply because at the beginning of every spring I get lazy and forget how much I love to exercise…. And of course, the mesmerizing power of the chocolate from the triple choc chip cookies wins over all the will in the world!

So I find it appropriate to share with you today what I do to get back my healthy lifestyle I was telling you about in this post here.

  1. Keep a journal of your Fitness journey, where to write all the details that will help you keep under control everything you do: weight, meals – which you can also plan in advance, certain fitness programs if you’re into any, the days you’ve been working out, and exercises you did, days you haven’t, what you eat on a regular day and what you allow yourself to eat during your cheat day…
  2. Don’t get discouraged if you can’t see immediate results! And by no means Don’t quit! Allow your body to do its thing, on its own rhythm… My body, for instance, needs a good 10 to 14 days of intense and sustained effort to show changes! So at least two weeks of daily working out at the gym, lots of water and some delicious meals, will take quite some time to show up! Read about my healthy eating habits here.
  3. Think positive! See the best in your muscles are sore – that means that you’re doing your exercises well… In that plain water that often tastes like nothing, but it will help you cleanse your bossy of all those nasty toxins… Nobody stops you to spruce that a bit with a touch of lemon, or strawberries, or mint, or… whatever excites you taste buds! In those who make fun of your red face after you ran 8 km in the park or on the thread mill… They can’t understand and above all, they wouldn’t be able to keep up with you, not even for the half of your run! They’re probably like that in real life as well – they want but they cannot! You WANT and you CAN!
  4. Realize that you’re alone in this! The sooner you realize this, the better for you and your mental set. Because “you” are going to be your worst “enemy” yourself! Tired, lazy, greedy, the epitome of all the cravings you’ve ever had at the worst hours in the day!… This is you now!
  5. But don’t worry! Don’t be too harsh on you! You’re only human after all! Understand that it’s better to take “yourself” by the hand and have a treat ( cheat day )… both of you! Like that you won’t feel that food-guilt that often pushes people way too far, leading them to some serious health issues, and “yourself” won’t be able to laugh it’s fat a** at you anymore!

So, how many of you are you doing any of these above! What else are you doing that I’m not aware of? Please share everything you know in the Comments below!

See you soon, Beautiful!

APIVITA Natural Serum LIFTING with royal jelly & vitamin A

Tags

, , ,

annie's beauty... Apivita Lifting Serum 1

I’m no stranger to Apivita products! I have used some of their skincare, body care and hair care items and had lovely results from them!

My favourites have to be their serums though! My absolute favourite serum is the Natural Serum HYDRATION with aloe & hyaluronic acid which I used at a certain point when my skin was acting out like never before and it put it back on track… But today I’m going to talk to you about a new discovery, the APIVITA Natural Serum LIFTING with royal jelly & vitamin A!

annie's beauty... Apivita Lifting Serum 2

Our skin has practically a life of its own and needs a couple of ingredients to “survive”. Its main “attraction” is firmness which depends on collagen and elastin ( two of the ingredients I was telling you about! ). The worst enemy of our skin is time, while it is also affected by external factors, such as exposure to the sun. So, as the years go by, the skin looses its elasticity and firmness. The Apivita LIFTING Natural Serum is used both in cases of firmness loss and preventively, recovering the skin’s elasticity and youthfulness. Its basically what your skin needs to look younger in a tiny little bottle!

The Natural Serum LIFTING has a rich formula and contains 95% natural ingredients, amongst which: Greek Royal Jelly, Vitamin A, Linseed, Cistus, Honey, Wheat germ oil, Hyaluronic acid, Myrrh, sandalwood & rose essential oils, Green tea infusion all from certified organic cultivation and NO Parabens, Silicones, Propylene glycol, Mineral oil, Ethanolamine, Phthalates, PCM, NM. Basically a loot of good ingredients and no nasties.

Vitamin A is basically a group of retinols which is the main “cause” of the regeneration of skin cells, giving that freshness and lifting to the face, while royal jelly is anti-aging and wrinkle reducer, skin and wound healer ( heals acne, scars, cuts, and wounds ), anti-inflammatory, has antibiotic components, antibacterial agents, contains complex B vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, minerals, and enzymes.

All these ingredients combined will lead to a more youthful-looking, fresh, hydrated and plumped skin and you’ll be noticing improvements with the first usages. This was my case! 

Given the fact that Vitamin A is in fact retinol, make sure you use this serum every other day or less, especially you my Beautiful ladies with sensitive skins! And make also sure that you’re using your SPF as you should, daily

Besides the benefits given by the ingredients, what I enjoyed the most is the lightweight texture of the product. It offers such an enjoyable experience when it touches your skin and it absorbs instantly leaving your face clear of any residues! Definitely excellent under makeup as well! It has a pleasant, faint smell that will not offend even the pickiest of noses! You know, products with natural ingredients in them tend to have strong, herbal, earty scents that most people would find unpleasant! Well, this is not the case!

This serum gained a special place in my skincare routine, that is a strong one now! I will definitely write a post dedicated to that, since my last one I remember writing a year a go! 

Would you like to read more about that? Please let me know in the comments below! And make sure you share your favourite serums, as I’m always opened to trying new products.

Thanks for reading Beautiful, and as aways…

See you soon! 

xx, Annie

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Lip Cheat Lip Liners – annie’s beauty… Collection

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

annie's beauty... Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liners Pink Venus Pillow Talk Iconic Nude Hollywood Honey Berry Naughty1

I wasn’t the biggest fan of lip liners… You know me! I’m kind of lazy and always in a hurry so, even though I give certain advice makeup and beauty-related tricks and tips, I rarely follow everything to the letter myself!…

But everything changed the moment the infamous Charlotte Tilbury Re-Shape & Re-Size Lip Liner, in Pillow Talk made its way into my otherwise quiet and tranquil life ( not! )… and absolutely roked it completely! Then everything went down the hill from there – as you can see from the picture, without any trace of a doubt!

annie's beauty... Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liners Pink Venus Pillow Talk Iconic Nude Hollywood Honey Berry Naughty2

So, I have let’s start with…

Pink Venus – gorgeous name, by the way! – a beautiful peachy coral shade, an excellent shade to wear under your peachy, bright summer lip colours! The peach undertone in it doesn’t transfer too obvious because I have quite pigmented lips, but sure looks sensual, youthful and fresh, especially with a gloss on top, as you can see in this post here.

Pillow Talk –  the most “talked” about from the entire Lip-Cheat line, has its own cult that follows it in our beauty world. No need to say a lot about it, except that it is probably the best selled Charlotte Tilbury makeup item, an excellent pink-ish nude colour, that works wonders on every skin type! Therefore you can hardly wonder why it’s so popular! Go see how it looks on me, here.

Iconic Nude is the newest member of the annie’s beauty… lip liner family!It’s definitely a true brown nude, without any traces of pink undertones in it, a warm colour so easy to wear under different lipsticks.

Hollywood Honey somehow warns you about my forever latent ( at the moment! ) obsession with dark lipsticks. This would look amazing in autumn, paired with a similar rusty coloured lipstick, or even with certain dark browns like I wore it here with my NARS Audacious Lipstick in Deborah, or the Estée Lauder Matte in Desirous.

Berry Naughty is the most gorgeous dark berry-toned lip liner I wore! It matches to perfection with the Charlotte Tilbury MATTE Revolution in Glastonberry, which you can see here, but also with the NARS Audacious Ingrid.

annie's beauty... Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liners Pink Venus Pillow Talk Iconic Nude Hollywood Honey Berry Naughty3

The LIP CHEAT RE-SHAPE & RE-SIZE LIP LINERS come in the most the velvety-soft formula, that glides onto the lips without any pressure needed, feel extremely hydrating on the lips… But I have to warn you that as deeper the colour goes, the hydration decreases noticeably! Nothing a good lip moisturizer cannot fix!, making them look more voluptuous, sensual and naturally gorgeus! The colour is really pigmented, matte and opaque, very long lasting on the lips and when it fades, it does it in the most uniform way, thankfully!

Don’t ask me which one is my favourite, as I would definitely say that I adore them all for different reasons and I wear them equally, in different occasions! My most worn have to be the nudes though! Pillow Talk and Pink Venus… But Iconic Nude comes faster from the back!

So, what are your favourite lip liners? Please share them in the Comments below!

Thanks a lot for reading, and as always…

See you soon, Beautiful!

HAMPTON SUN – Smart. Serious. Sunbathing*

Tags

, , , ,

I meant to publish this article later, closer to the hot summer months, as everybody seems to realize they need protection from the basking sun rays around that time of the year … Nothing more wrong! You need protection from the sun all year round without exception!

But I’m not going to bore you with the whys and how-tos, since I already did that in a post I wrote a while back, that you can still read here and move on to the star of this review.

MADISON Luxury Perfumery Bucharest LAVENDER CULTURE Summer 2015 Eventanniesbeautyblog4

This above is a gift I received after attending a fabulous beauty blogger event at Madison Luxury Perfumery Bucharest at the end of last summer ( read more here ), that was centered around lavender. Hence the bouquet! I somehow managed to keep the products intact and the lavender bouquet as well until a few days ago when we went fishing!… And after the not too pleasant burning experience of last year’s fishing trip, when nothing saved my skin but the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate, I definitely decided to prevent that from repeating, and put these Hampton Sun goodies to test!

Hampton Sun® is a complete line of luxury suncare, skincare and parfum products made with only the finest ingredients: vitamins, anti-oxidants and elements from the nature, a brand completely inspired by the high-life and the beautiful beaches of the Hamptons. Need more luxury than that?!

So I got the chance to try a few of their essentials:

  • the Hampton Sun’s Hydrating Aloe Mist – you know how much I love a face mist and this aloe one is so soothing, hydrating ( contains Vitamin E as well ) and refreshing, thanks to the mint extracts in it! The formula is oil-free and fragrance-free, and allows you to enjoy the benefits of its ingredients without any sticky residue left behind on skin.
  • Hampton Sun’s Luxe Sport SPF 35 Continuous Mist Sunscreen gives the benefits of a highly potent sunscreens in an unique, oil-free formula, feels light and silky on the skin, and absorbs instantly with no sticky film. Plus it has a hint of Hampton Sun’s signature Privet Bloom scent for “the perfect touch of sophistication”.
  • Hampton Sun’s SPF 30 Luxe Sport Lip Balm – is the ultimate luxury lip protection, made with amazing ingredients like: Vitamin A, Aloe, Pomegranate extract, Green tea, Cocoa butter, Cucumber extract, Calendula, Canadian Willow Bark, Seaweed extract, all put together to act as a shield against the harmful UVA and UVB sun rays ( the only lip protector I’ve used this far that offers double protection).

MADISON Luxury Perfumery Bucharest LAVENDER CULTURE Summer 2015 Eventanniesbeautyblog6

What I did to protect my skin was to reapply every other hour the Luxe Sport SPF 35 Continuous Mist Sunscreen on my face that I previously cleansed with my Hydrating Aloe Mist and some cotton pads, a little lip balm, and there was no trace of redness, burning, dryness, sore patches, peeling and all that “good stuff I was experiencing last year!

On my sensitive skin was a God-sent; I had no allergic reactions, and because is an oil-free formula the product didn’t clogged my pores causing breakouts either! My skin could breathe, felt hydrated, nourished and protected! Definitely recommend this brand, for as expensive as it might be!

What do you use to protect your skin, Beautiful? Please share your favourites!

See you soon!

New in: TOM FORD picks as of late…

Tags

, , ,

annie’s beauty... New in - Tom Ford

It’s been a while since I saw a product and I instantly felt “the urge” to take it home with me! But if you know me, and how much I love my little Tom Ford collection of goodies, this little haul won’t come as a surprise!… I can’t resist Tom Ford Beauty, for the life of me!!!

  1. Just to take it out of the way, I finally caved in and bought the Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in 09 First Time. I had my eyes on this one ever since I got my other 4(?!) shades, but I always thought that First Time was such a common nude, nothing special about it… And how wrong was I?!… Since I’m loving a nude, everyday, effortless lip at any time, it was just a matter of time until I caved in and get this one as well!… Anyways there was me, always picking the boldest new lip options and leaving the safest ones for later on!?!?!!!…
  2. Speaking about boldest picks… The next one is definitely bold… and daring… and rest assured that you’ll make a statement wearing it! It’s the Tom Ford Patent Lip Finish Lip Color 07 Erotic, an amazing fuchsia-pink with the glossiest finish I have ever seen on a lip product! It’s even glossier than the Dior Addict Fluid Sticks Dior came out a while back… And the name of it is everything! Expect a review coming soon!
  3. The cream eyeshadows from Tom Ford come probably with the best formula in the world… I recently wrote a review comparing the Limited Edition Golden Peach to another amazing formula that comes in a stick rather than a pot – the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Pink Quartz which is the perfect dupe for Golden Peach ( read that here! )!… Point is everybody’s raving about Tom Ford‘s cream eyeshadows in Spice and Platinium, so leave it to Annie to pick the one shadow that didn’t impressed basically anyone… I simply adore the Cream Color for Eyes in 03 Sphinx! It’s not pigmented but it sure has an absolutely fabulous golden-pink duochrome sheen, that applied as a finishing touch in the middle of the lid creates the most beautiful, luminous, out-of-this-world-gorgeous effect! Couldn’t be happier with my choice! Either way, Spice is next! Uppss!!!

Here you have it! A tiny but very well loved Tom Ford haul! What were your most loved picks lately? Please share in the Comment section below!

As always, thanks for reading!

See you soon, Beautiful!

The Limited Edition TOM FORD Golden Peach & its permanent dupe, the BY TERRY Frozen Quartz Cream Eyeshadows

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

annie's beauty... TOM FORD Golden Peach vs By Terry Frozen Quartz1

Tom Ford‘s Golden Peach was, along with Naked Bronze, the two best sold Limited Edition eyeshadow duos from last year’s Soleil Summer Collection. Everybody wanted it, some lucky ones actually got it and fell in love from the first use!… I got it as well, and it’s safe to say that this is probably my most loved and used cream eyeshadow in my entire collection!

annie's beauty... TOM FORD Golden Peach vs By Terry Frozen Quartz2

But wait! Here comes the best part! I recently found a permanent dupe for Golden Peach! It’s the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Frozen Quartz. I know that the Tom Ford Golden Peach is a re-promote with the fairly recent launched 2016 Soleil Summer Collection, but the By Terry “Color-Fix” Cream Eye Shadow is just as good, pretty similar in terms of consistency, pigmentation and colour, and it also comes in this very practical and easy to use packaging. Plus it’s less expensive than it’s otherwise glorious dupe!    

I have a complete review on it and all the By Terry Ombre Blackstar “Color-Fix” Cream Eye Shadows in my makeup collection, here.

annie's beauty... TOM FORD Golden Peach vs By Terry Frozen Quartz3

Here you have a swatch-comparison of the two eyeshadows; the only difference you can barely sense between the two is that Frozen Quartz shows up a bit cooler than Golden Peach… Nothing too obvious on the eyelids when applied and gets to set though!

Both formulas are creamy, easy to blend, buildable, great colour pay-off and amazing longevity! Excellent to use as a base for your eye makeup, instead of a primer. Your eye makeup won’t crease or move around the entire day!

Which one would you prefer, Beautiful?

As always, thanks for reading and…

See you soon!

xx, Annie

In the mood for Spring – annie’s beauty… 2016 Very Pink Beauty Edit

Tags

, , ,

annie's beauty... in the mood for spring beauty edit 2016 2

!!!FAIR WARNING!!!

!!!THIS POST IS HEAVILY PINK!!!

Despite the dreary weather, I’m so inspired by the optimistic pinks of spring lately… I wear pink makeup, my pink trench coat and I love the pink sakura flowers in bloom ( Japan is a miracle of nature at this time of the year! )… So I had to write a pink-inspired post, with all the lovely makeup products I’m loving and definitely recommend to all of you to use right now!

annie's beauty... in the mood for spring beauty edit 2016 3

Let’s start our pink adventure with:

  • DIOR Diorskin Star Foundation, shade 010 Ivory. Although I’m not the biggest fan of pink undertones foundation as I think it accentuates rosiness in my face in a not so flattering way, this foundation is the exception! It has the perfect amount of pink in it,  not to make me look as if I’m burning on the inside… Love the luminous, fresh and healthy finish and of course, the compliments I always get while wearing it!
  • pink cheeks: responsible for that is my absolutely favourite blush of all time, the HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Blush in shade Ethereal Glow. It pairs with my pale skin to perfection, enhancing its qualities.
  • pink eyes: until I’ll have my hands on the most beautiful BY TERRY Ombre Blackstar in Bubble Gum, launched with their Spring 2016 Collection, I will have to settle for my second favourites, the BURBERRY Sheer Eyeshadow Tea Rose No.11 and BURBERRY Tea Rose No.200 Eye Colour Wet&Dry Silk Shadow ( the new formula ), with a dash of the TOM FORD Cream Color For Eyes in 03 Sphinx for the most incredible mother-of-pearl effect ( review coming soon! ).
  • pink lips: that’s the tough one as the choice is limitless… I managed to narrow my bright pink lipstick choices in my previous post, so please click the link to check that one as well! I really appreciate it!
  • pink perfume: I go for lighter perfumes now. I’m not the floral type-sweet type of girl, since I’m not the “most girly girl” either! So I do like a bit of a floral scent, but a deep, earthy, aromatic one… A floral with a twist! My latest obsession being the MAISON FRANCIS KURKDJIAN Amyris Pour Femme, the most sensual and feminine perfume for spring! Take note! I said “feminine” not “girly”!

annie's beauty... in the mood for spring beauty edit 2016 1

Enough pink already!!!

Now it’s time to share your favourite spring colours and items! Let’s properly welcome spring here, on annie’s beauty…

See you soon, Beautiful!

5 Bright Lipsticks for Spring feat. TOM FORD, NARS, CHARLOTTE TILBURY, CHANEL, BURBERRY

Tags

, , ,

5 Bright Lipsticks for Spring 2016 1

We’re hardly seeing signs of spring these days in Romania, with the cold and dreary weather we’re having outside, but I just happen to have the cure for that! No, I can’t bring you warm and bright weather, but I still can brighten your sight with some of the most beautiful lipsticks in my collection.

Cheers for bright lipstick, cheers for spring and warm weather that’s excellent for wearing them! Let’s just hope we’ll have that soon as well!

5 Bright Lipsticks for Spring 2016 2

My picks will contain some old favourites as well as a new one I only wore a couple of times and I love already and an honourable mention, which is not pictured here by mistake, but it’s definitely an amazing choice!

  1. the BURBERRY Lip Glow in Mallow Pink No.19 – you must’ve seen me talking about this one every single spring ( and summer) since I started blogging, because it’s simply one of my favourites. It’s bright, it’s pink, it’s glossy, fresh and young, and I will probably wear it this year as well… although *whispers* I might definitely need to throw it away and get me a new one! *wink*
  2. CHARLOTTE TILBURRY K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Fallen From The Lipstick Tree in Coachella Coral it’s a bright and happy peachy pink colour, that will put a colour instantly on your face. I’ve been in doubt wether to choose Coachella Coral or to go for the MATTE Revolution Lost Cherry… I settled for Coachella Coral, but for the sake of Lost Cherry which I absolutely adore, I will call it my honourable mention.
  3. NARS Audacious Lipstick MICHIYO. My girl Michiyo is the boldest and brightest of them all! A statement lip, that’s what I can say when wearing it! A cooll toned fuchsia pink, in the most amazing creamy-matte formulation you’ll ever have the chance to try. Definitely recommend it!
  4. the TOM FORD Patent Finish Lip Color 07 Erotic has the whole sensuality and grace of the Tom Ford brand concentrated in this little product here. Extremely glossy, so soft on the lips, not tacky at all, gives your lips the most “erotic” colour, I’m sure you’ll find it so hard to resist to! ( The review on this one will be up soon, so keep your eyes away from Erotic and point them at annie’s beauty…! Haha! )
  5. and the last choice it had to be a red of course… But not any red! Away from all those winter/festive and deep/autumn reds, now I need a bright red with some not exaggerated orange undertones in it to cheer me up, especially on a gloomy day!… And like the perfect gentleman the CHANEL Rouge Coco 440 Arthur took its name after, here you have it to save the day. Merci Monsieur!

And we’re up to 5 already!

What do you think of my picks? Did they cheer you up a little? Please cheer me up as well, and share your favourites in the Comments below!

Have a bright and happy day/week, Beautiful! Stay positive no matter what and…

See you soon!

xx, Annie
