Beach walks


Me and my other half decided to take a trip down seaside for some well deserved fresh air and new sights to admire.
At first I have suggested we go to Brighton because it is one of my favourite seasides ever! My hubby on the other hand doesn't like to go back somewhere twice and suggested we go to Worthing.

It was absolutely freezing so I was very glad that I put my hat and this fluffy green coat on! My hat is from Sports Direct and the coat is from a Chinese online shop that I don't remember the name of.

My body is so not used to the fresh sea air  that I actually felt dizzy and so we sat down for a quick lunch at KFC!

After our walk we went to the most beautiful chapel I ever did see and there was a wedding when we go there which made it even more special. It is so beautiful that I would't mind to get married again hahah! Joking of course but maybe we could renew our vows there I think that would be pretty special place to do!

Where was the last time you went to to explore?

Christmas Walk.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I hope you had a lovely day and looking forward to whatever it is you planned for the New Years eve.
Personally I absolutely love NYE and enjoy it a lot MORE than Christmas purely because where I come from we celebrate Christmas after the NYE celebrations in other words where my home is we all have NYE parties and NYE shopping to do whereas here everyone does Christmas this and that. 

10 years on and I still don't really recognise 25th December as being 'my' Christmas if you see what I mean but I still enjoy the day with my family nonetheless. 

This year we decided to go for a walk in our local park. Skyped our friend in Prague (oh how do I love 4G) and our parents who are in Ukraine for holidays. 

After our walk we had some lunch and went home for a nap, which was so lovely and cozy! I love spending my time at home with my loved ones just like everybody else does I'm sure.

We were then very lucky and got invited for a dinner party by my husbands work colleague and it was so much fun! 

Let me know in comments how you spent your day and what have you been up to for NYE?

Beauty bits

Wow! It really has been a long while since I posted something on here and I thank you so much for staying if you stayed and if you went then please come back!! :)

I have recently been enjoying posting videos on my Youtube channel more than writing posts on my blog as I find it's a lot more creative and visualising.

I mainly do hauls as I feel comfortable enough to do them however I am going to try and do 'get ready' and 'night time routine' videos as they are my favourite to watch!

Check out my video below and give it some love :D xxx

Fluffy friends

So I decided to do a little update on my two most fluffiest and lovliest little friends. I wrote a blog post about them back in July 2014 when I first got them and oh my haven't they grown?!

Them two have very different characters but they love each other very much and enjoy their play time too. I see them jumping around, kiss each other, chill together, sleep together and eat together every day. Obviously, they share the same cage but it makes me extremely happy to see them happy :)

They do like to spend their time 'apart' sometimes too. When one lies in a wooden house and the other spreads her paws and whole body in the middle of the cage as if she's lying in the middle of the beach and sunbathing in the sun. It's so cute to watch.

They are going to be two in July and I love them very much! 
Let me know if you have any pets? 

Hope you're having a great day!
Tomorrow is Friday!! Yipyyy!!!!

My Highlights | 2015

Hey there!

Before you all start screaming: 'JANE! It's a bit too LATE for that!' ahaha! I just want to say yes, I know its almost February and the rest of the internet has already done posts and videos on their life's ups and downs in 2015 and their new years resolutions for 2016 but let's face it I'm always kinda late to get on a bandwagon and so I thought it's better late than never besides I'm quite confident that it will be fun for me to read in the future :)

So I wanted to concentrate only on positive things that happened to me last year because as I sat down and thought about my ups and downs, I realised I was very lucky in the sense that not a lot of upsetting things happened to me, although one has affected me in the long run quite badly and as they say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and oh it certainly did. But other than that, I had my usual downs where I didn't know where my life is going and I still kind of don't and I'm still trying to figure that one out for myself but all I can do is try and do more of what makes me happy as Alfie from PointlessBlog would say and blogging and being creative is definitely one of them.

Without any further rumbly introduction, let's dive in into my HIGHLIGHTS of 2015:

1. I travelled a lot this year. Now this might not be a lot to some people but it definitely was for me, and oh boy did I have fun.
                                                                           Egypt, 2015

                                                                           Safari trip, Egypt 2015

                                                               Safari trip, Egypt 2015

                                                                  Camel LOVE for you right here :)

                                                                   Jerusalem, Israel 2015

Now, as we like to say in Ukraine, me and my husband decided to 'kill two rabbits with one bullet'     (very strange saying, don't ask) but I suppose you get the concept of it. Jerusalem is located very close by to Egypt, so we popped on the bus and spent about 11 hours until we stepped onto the Holy Land. I looked very very very tired whereas my hubby looked as handsome as ever. JEALOUS! Anyway, I can't say that I go to the church every Sunday but I very much believe in spiritual strength and it's creator. Jerusalem was all about that and so much more. It's a beautiful city with a LOT of history and outstanding architecture.

                                                      Church of the Holy Sepulchre

                                                           Old City of Jerusalem, 2015 

                                                               Old City of Jerusalem, 2015 

After that we were very lucky to go on another holiday in the same year (unheard of in my family) and this time we went to Antalya, Turkey. I was so ready for this holiday because as I said earlier in this post something quite bad and upsetting has happened to me at work and I just couldn't wait to get out.

                                                                          Antalya, 2015
                                                          Portobello Hotel and Spa, 2015
                                       Water scooter was the BEST experience of my life :) 

After our sunny holiday in Turkey, couple of months later I finally made the decision to go home for a week and it was the best decision ever! It was so lovely to come to the place where I grew up and where I made a lot of fun memories. It was also very good to go back and remind myself where I come from.

                                                                   Kyiv, Ukraine 2015

2. I met some incredible people on our holidays but the one that comes to mind instantly is this guy.

By the way this guy is still very present in my life and we actually became very close friends! Me and my husband share him hahah! He is very good friend of ours and we actually planning a trip to see him in Prague. Can't wait!!!!

3. We finally moved out from my parent's house and started renting a tiny studio flat, which is located not far from them. I can't tell you how glad I was when we've made that decision and so when we could finally afford it, we moved out as soon as we could. It's small but it's our little place that we call home.

So there you have it, my top 3 most memorable highlights of 2015.

I wish you all a great 2016 and I hope that your goals and ambitions will materialise into the reality!

Beauty bits - Winter Edition

Hey everyone!

So winter is officially here and I am so excited about that!!!!

Over the last couple of months I've noticed that I've started reaching for some items that I don't usually use in warmer months of the year and so I decided to share it with you, just in case if you're interested.
I am a big lover of lotions and body butters and so this item isn't really a novelty for my skin in autumn/winter months but it's definitely a must during this time of the year especially if you get very dry skin. I've been absolutely loving this body lotion by Zoella Beauty from her Tutti Fruity collection. It absorbs very quickly and leaves your skin really soft and smelling divine.
Here is a closer look:) It also has a lot of bursting beads and extracts of Acai which protects and pampers your skin.

Lipsticks on the other hand is a new thing that my lips are experiencing this year. I've never been a fan of them for some reason but I suppose after watching a couple of YouTube videos where beautiful beauty gurus are talking about how this lipstick has changed their life ( sorry... being a little bit overdramatic here but you get the point) and then of course I go to Boots and start experimenting with different colours of lipstick. The one I'm using the most these days is by Kate Moss in number 37. It's not exactly your typical Merlin Monroe red colour but it does the job and  if you're going for a more vampy look then this colour is definitely worth a try because you can build up the colour that you want with no trouble.

What I've been really like doing for the last couple of months is to use this beautiful thing by Tanya Burr Cosmetics. I absolutely love this colour! It's so appropriate for this time of the year however I will still be wearing it all year round. It's very glossy and smells of fresh and sweet watermelons, which is a little bonus. The colour is in 'Let's travel the World' which has a really nice coral colour to it.
Lip balms is a must for me in autumn and winter time as my lips tend to get quite dry. I've been using Kissy Missy lip balm by Zoella. It's very moisturising and has a very lovely pinky tint to it but you can most definitely build up the colour if you wish.
Red nail polish is a must for me! Although I like to change the colour of my nails on a weekly basis, I've been loving this nail polish by Bourjois in a dark red colour the most! It's quite shiny and lasts a decent amount of time on your nails without chipping.

I've been really enjoying using the 'Stop the clock' moisturiser by Sanctuary Spa over my Clinique gel one as I find this one is a lot more oilier and protects my skin from harsh weather outside.

I bought this eye pencil online thinking that I selected it in black colour but it turned out in purple. To be honest I'm not the most confident person when it comes to experimenting with different eye pencil colours and I'm not sure why because I quite like experimenting with my eye shadows and mascaras. I'm so happy that by mistake I must have selected this pencil in purple because I absolutely love it. It's so much easier to use than black pencil I find and I also think it gives my eyes that smoky but still wearable look during the day. I got this from

I got this 'Excessive Shimmer' eye shadow cream while I was doing my weekly shop at Sainsbury's. I don't tend to get any make up from supermarkets but I think I need to start because I'm desperately trying to save at the moment. I've been really enjoying to use this with my purple eye liner. These two products complete each other in the most beautiful way.

I've also done a video on my autumn/winter essentials on Youtube. The link is below:
