Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

Very rarely I am surprised. Not that there is nothing that can surprise me and leave dumbfounded, but more often than not I am pretty well informed and know about things. Especially when it comes to make up. Well I spend time and effort to read, watch and explore for news and cool innovations. So… AVON succeeded in surprising me. A few days ago, I received a pretty black Avon branded paper bag, with a little, very small pink and black box, and it said Mega Effects Mascara. Well mascaras come in a long and slim box, not small and flat. Surprise one.

I was super intrigued so I opened the box, and there was inside something like a highlighter and not the normal mascara. You know as a woman in my late 20s I have used quite a lot of little tubes of the black magic. So this looked strange. Surprise two.

I started trying to open it. No twisting, no cap. You have to pull. And then… no brush! No brush people, but a small pink handle. So bizarre. Surprise three.

To be honest, and I know it might sound stupid, I was scared of breaking the little thing. So I put it back in the box and left it to explore in quiet. Later on I was meeting two of my guy-friends, who like gadgets, so I showed the box, and asked them to help me figure it out. The one took it out of the box wiggled it and said- ‘Well let’s look at the instructions!”. Surprise four!

This mascara came with instructions! So yeah we opened it and it was strange and new and interesting. It did look like a mascara, but not like the ones I have been using in the past two decades. So I did some research on got the info on it. It is revolutionary. Changing our make up habits and showing us there is always something new to expect.

But to be honest it is great. i have used it only once lightly for day make up, but with just two brushings you get long black eyelashes. I am going to play with it and try for dramatic lashes and see what happens. So far no flakes, no smudges. The only thing is that I am so used to using the Artistry  mascara that comes off without making any mess, this one makes me look like a panda bear when I am taking it off, like the normal mascaras.

Много рядко нещо може да ме изненада. Не, че няма нищо, което да ме изненада изобщ, но по-често, отколкото не, аз съм доста добре информирана  за нещата около мен. Особено, когато става въпрос за грим. Все пак прекарвам време и усилия, за да чета, гледа и да се запознавам с новости и готни иновации. Така че … AVON успяха да ме изненада. Преди няколко дни, получих черен плик брандиран с  Avon, с малка, много малка, розова и черна кутийка, на която пишеше Мега Effects Mascara. Е спиралите идват в дълга и тънка кутия, не е малка и плоска. Изненада едно!

Бях много заинтригувана затова отворих кутийкатаи вътре имаше нещо като маркер, а не на нормалната спирала. Като 28 годишна цена съм използвала доста малки тръбички черна магия. Така че това нещо в кутийката изглеждаше странно. Изненада две.

Започнах да се опитвам да го отвория. Нямаше как да го завъртя.  Трябваше да се издърпа. И тогава … не четка! Вътре нямаше четка, а една малка розова дръжка. Странно. Изненада три.

За да бъда честна, знам, че може да звучи глупаво, аз се страхувах да не счупя това малко нещо. Така че, го поставих братно в кутията и я оставих за проучване в тих и спокоен момент. По-късно се срещнах двама мои приятели, които обичат джаджи, така че им показах тази странна спирала и ги помолих да ми помогнат да я отворя. Единият я извади от кутията и яразмърда и каза: “Ами нека да разгледаме инструкцията!”.  Тази сприала идва с инструкция! Изненада четири!

И така с инструкцията отворихме магическата спирала. Определено не приличаше на спирала,която сте използвали през последните две десетилетия. Това е революционна нова спирала или поне начинът и на слагане върху миглите. Радвам се, че все още има иновативни марки, които се опитват да променят индустрията и нашите потребителски навици.

Пробвах спиралата само веднъж за лек дневен грим и съм много доволна. Не се размазва, слага се лесно, макар и да е странно да използваш плоска четка. Определено ще си поиграя с нея за по драматичен грим. Единственото нещо е, че съм свикнала да спиралата ми Artistry, която не се размазва, когато я премахвам вечер, така че, беше много странно когато започнах да свалам Avоn спиралата и се погледнах и приличах на панда. Но не може всичко да е перфектно, все пак Avоn са създали нещо много иновативно и екстравагантно. Смело е са се опиташ да смениш навиците на няколко поколения жени.

YouTube Makes Me Weep!

I am not sure if I am the only one crazy person, who cries at YouTube videos. You know full on tears coming down my face type of cry. I am falling for how wonderful real life is, and thankful for the people who share their happiest moments on social media, in order to touch other people’s hearts, and in my case bring the full-on-tears part.

I just saw these two videos, and they truly touched me. I have no idea who Isaac and Amy are, where they live, what they do, but what they have shared is so much love, so much positive energy, so many great fun people and such an amazing charging story that there is no way for it not to be shared.

This video as well, a follow up of the proposal video, is charged with so much love, showing that love is all we need, and a simple yes can change a lifetime. What mostly touched me are the two grandmothers, with the photos of their late husbands. I tear up thinking about how wonderful is to grow old with someone and share a lifetime together, not even talking about having 10! kids.

This is a very emotional post, not very typical for the blog,  but in the age we live in, the lives we live are in need of more strong emotions, more positive feelings and even a bit of love, that can turn everything on the bright side.  I am a firm believer that what you bring in results in what you give out, the more positive, loving and good a person is, the more positive, loving and good people she meets. I wish the world was full of more people like Isaac and Amy. Wishing them all the happiness in the world!

Homeware crush: Keith Brymer Jones

My first encounter with Keith Brymer Jones was this winter when I was looking for a gift for one of my bestest friends. Found the perfect gift, a simple white apron with red lettering “Goddess” on it.

After that I kept crushing on the wonderful simplicity and distinctiveness of all the homeware pieces I kept of seeing everywhere. Basically if I could my whole kitchen would be filled with the gorgeous ceramic pieces.

They are classic, but with a note of fun and joy in them. It is such a simple idea to put lettering on everything, but keep it simple, and add just a sprinkle of humor in it.

Gotta love the new black and white craziness from the Queen of Pop. The beat is great, the video is as scandalous as it gets. Smells like song of the spring!

Jean Paul Gaultier for Diet Coke

JPG is the new creative powerhouse behind the Diet Coke, replacing Uncle Karl. The short video-teaser was released to announce the collaboration. I am kind dumbfounded as to the video, and I hope the future will show more amazing things. The coolest thing of the whole vid is the curtains that are in the signature Jean Paul navy-stipes. Nice touch there!

Love it or not so much?
