And now look at me! I have yielded to the social network giant. I am weak! :)

Anyway, make sure to check out my Facebook page, I think it's really cool and click on that ''like'' button like there's no tomorrow:P

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas,

Tried and Tested: A Review on Lip Balms

A really cold winter can be a bit challenging for somebody who has problems with dry skin - that includes lips. I will never forget a one-week holiday in Canada in October, which meant that it was already below zero Celsius and really windy. I was in my early teens and didn't have anything remotely resembling a lip balm on me. The wind was constantly blowing and my lips got dry, so I figured I would lick them to moisten them up and ended up licking them pretty much all the time.

The result of this lip-licking mania was soon evident in only three days - my lips got SO swollen, they were burgundy red on the lines and saying that the were chapped is a really mild way of putting it. After these three days, my mom had to drag me into a nearby drug store where a really nice shopping assistant told us:''Oui, my niece 'ad ze same problem.'' She gave me a really rich balm that smelled like watermelons:) In a few days, my lips were saved.

So, after this experience, I take not one, but two lip balms everywhere I go. The problem with lip balms is that not every one is good for really dry chapped lips, so I decided to write a review on lip balms.

1. Burt's Bees Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter. 100% natural. Price: Around 4 euros (4.25 g)
I like this lip balm. It smells really nice but very discreet (I hate lip balms with really strong fruity smells) and it is fairly rich in texture. I would recommend wearing it on mild winter days but as soon as the temperatures really drop, you will have a problem. It does not heal chapped lips very well and afterwards, your lips feel even more dry, so you have to constantly reapply it. I would give it a 3.5 on a scale of 5.

2. Labello Fruity Shine Pink Guava. Price: Around 2.5 euros (4.8 g)
This lip balm smells heavenly without being too aggressive. It is also slightly tinted and gives your lips a nice glow. But it does not heal chapped lips and after wearing it on a cold winter day, your lips feel like leather:( So my advice would be don't wear it in the winter, wear it in the spring or summer, so you'll get the most of your money. I would give it a 2/5.

3. Carmex. The Classic Moisturizing Lip Balm. Price: Around 2 euros (10 g)
This lip balm is a life saver! I love it. No matter how many lips balms I have tested, I always go back to this one. The texture is incredibly rich, it really really really nourishes my lips and after using it, they feel velvety and sexy and actually moisturized. I this that this lip balm is perfect and considering the price and how much of it you get for it (10g instead of cca. 4g like other lip balms), I think it's a fabulous bargain and in my opinion, a must-have for every woman. I would give it 5/5. WINNER!!!

4. Labello Hydra Care. Price: Around 2 euros (4.8 g)
I really like the texture of this balm. It's very velvety, moist and light. The problem is that it is too light, so you quickly well... eat it and that lovely velvety feeling is quickly gone:( I would give it 3/5.

5.Elanosol Lip Balm with Propolis, Honey and Beeswax. Price: Around 2 euros (5.2 g) SPF 15
This lip balm is pretty solid, I mean, it smells a bit too... medical, you can really smell that propolis inside and the texture is okay but it doesn't protect the lips from the sun or harsh cold, even though it has a SPF 15. So in that view, I am a little bit disappointed, so I would give it 2.5/5.

I hope you found this post helpful and if you have, give me a shout in the comment box below,

United Colors of Zagreb

I am crazy about colors. Especially in November because it's quite frankly the suckiest part of the year. October is fine because the trees are covered with colorful leaves and December is fine because it's white and full of kitschy Christmas decorations but November falls somewhere in the middle, I mean, the leaves fall off the trees, it's raining, it gets cold, there's still no snow. All you end up with are soaking wet tree trunks!

So, I am forever looking for colorful things in the shops and basically all around me. That way I wrap myself with the warm fuzziness of colors, colors, colors...
