For today, I brought you two beauty products, tested lately:
Jimjams' Black Soap and Nivea's BB cream
I always liked body care products by Nivea that is why I always give their facial products a try.
However, I am usually not amazed by the end result.
The first time I applied it, I was surprised how difficult it was to put it on and to dispel.
I did not use a primer, setting powder or setting spray so the second disappontment was that it started to fade away very quickly. It lasted only a few hours and started to fade away.
As of regards to coverage, I would say it is light, it evens the skin tone but does not conceal problems zones very much. However, it gives a natural and "no makeup" look.
All in all, if you need a BB creme that does not need to last long or give good coverage, it might be something for you. Otherwise, look for another product.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my post.
It is highly appreciated.

For today I brought you a really easy "recipe" for a snack that is perfect for a fall night with some tasty rose wine and toast.
It is also a perfect small gift for a gourmet friend or family member.
What you need:
hard or semi-hard cheese (possibly goat's cheese)
neutral flavour vegetable oil
The amount of ingredients depends on the size of your jar.
You need to cut the cheese into cubes. Put the cheese, garlic, dried tomatoes, capers, pepper and rosemary into the jar. Pour the vegetable oil on it.
Let it mature for at least one week in the fridge.
If it is meant to be a gift, use some burlap and raffia as decoration.

As the weather turns colder and colder, I like spending more time inside sipping some hot drinks. I am a huge lover of cute mugs, so here are some of my favourites.
Thanks for stopping by!

What you need:
2 kg of apples
220 g sugar
How to make it?
Peel and cut the apples into small cubes. To prevent the apples from getting brown, put them in cold water.
When finished with peeling and cutting, pour the water off. Put the apples into a cooking pot, add sugar and squeeze half of the lemon to the apples and sugar. Start cooking them on low heat.
After about 20 minutes add the juice of the other half of the lemon and cook it for another 20 minutes. Stir the jam from time to time.
When finished, pour it into washed and sterilized jars.
Store the jars in a cool, non-hunid place protected from direct sunlight.
As there are no preservatives added, eat the jam in maximally 2-3 months.
