Overview of 2015 + My Birthday Giveaway14:53
New year always makes you look back to what you've accomplished in the previous one. I too felt the need to share with you my most read or viewed posts and those that I had the most fun creating. It's been an amazing blogging year and I've met some of my favorite Slovenian beauty bloggers in person. I also feel like I expended my friendship circle, which is always nice.
Most Viewed Posts of 2015
Here are the posts that have been the most viewed in 2015 and were written in 2015. I was surprised by how many of them are my Avon posts, but I get it. It's hard to buy Avon lipsticks without browsing through some swatches on the blogs. I also really like my Catrice Liquid Camouflage review, because I feel like I did a good and detailed review.

My Favorite Posts of 2015
I skipped the reviews here, because I wanted to share the posts that show my creative side and the ones that I spend more time doing. My two gift guide posts where almost like my favorite products of 2015. This is a helpful guide for any kind of purchase, not just Christmas. I also loved showing you my most common makeup mistakes. It was so much fun making it. The two manicures that I loved this year were the ones with white matte negative space and blue sweater nails. I really need to do more nail art, because I've been horrible with it this year. For my two favorite makeup looks, I couldn't leave out Fairy of Gold. It was the most fun and glittery makeup ever. When we're on the topic of glitter, my next favorite was green and red Christmas makeup. The glitter sparkled so pretty in person and I felt like a million bucks.

I have to say thank you to all the lovely bloggers I met in person: Tatjana, Tjaša and Mateja. It was so nice to meet you all. It always feels nice meeting persons with the same interests. So we're not just internet buddies anymore ;). Thanks to all of your who comment and read my posts. It's why we decided to do this in the first place. To share common interests and thought. I appreciate every comment.
Big thanks to all of you who have decided to collaborate with me in the past year. It was fun to do post together and change up the usual blog routine.
Also thanks to all the brands that have decided to work with me in the past year. I've discovered some amazing products that I probably wouldn't otherwise.
For the 2016 I am planning on trying some new posts. I would like to write more about the topics that interest me and not only reviews. I would also like to feature monthly favorites, because I don't get the chance to tell you which products I am loving at a certain moment. I also want to do more creative makeups, just to challenge myself.
I hope I'll get the chance to meet more of you lovely bloggers and readers in person, because it's always nice to link the voice and image with the blog.
Oh, I also changed my header photo and a bit of my blog look in general. If I'll have more time, I'll change more. But for now, I really needed an updated photo for my social media profiles.
Since today is 5th of January, it's also my birthday. I usually make a birthday giveaway and this year, I decided to ask Avon, one of my favorite companies I've worked with in the past, to contribute some of their and mine favorite products.
You can win:
-Ebelin Concealer Eggs 2 Pieces
-Ebelin Makeup Sponge
* These products were contributed by Avon company. Thank you Avon! I took pictures of my products, but obviously you'll get new untouched products.
Everything else was purchased by me. I always give products that I believe in and love. This time it's no exception.
The giveaway is open only to Slovenia (because of the stupidly high postage costs) and it will be open until 19th of January. I will chose the winner at random through Rafflecopter and I will email you. If you don't answer withing 24 hours, I will choose another winner.
Enough of my rambling. I wish you all the best in 2016 and may all your ambitions and plans turn out as you want.
