1 year blog Anniversary :D

Hello guys,

So it has been officially a year that I have been blogging on my old blog Make-up by Sarah-Jane and this blog altogether. It has been such an amazing journey, this blog that really helped me in a lot of ways and it has made me experience a lot of new things and enhance my artistic capabilities.

When I started this blog, I did it to find that feminine side of myself again which I had lost when I was studying to get my degree. I was spending a lot of days at home studying barely going out and no time to get pampered and take care of myself. So I started blogging about the things I loved and doing make-up looks as I used to do before my college days and it was a lot of fun. As people were very interested in my opinion of what products I used and my make-up artistry application, I started to love this even more. The beautiful thing about cosmetics is that they can make you feel, your worth a 100bucks, confident and pretty.

I love doing make-up not only on myself but also on others, because I can make everyone feel pretty and confident with some simple make-up tricks. Everyone should always feel beautiful, everyone should treat themselves as a prince or princess, as as we do that we feel better about ourselves and we can accomplish anything we want in our lives.

I will host a giveaway soon, but I need to do a little bit of shopping first :). My giveaway will contain some of the products I truly cannot live without, so keep posted and thank you for your support




NARS – Blusher – Deep Throat

Hey guys,

I guess it’s time to review my second product I got from Nars. If you haven’t seen my other review for the Nars bronzing powder Laguna go here.


I have only tried these two products from NARS and yes I fell in love with them. NARS products are very expensive for me but they are completely worth the price, you are really buying a high quality product. Deep Throat is a beautiful middle tone between peach and pink, it has this slight shimmer which is like a more like a highlighter it gives this lovely natural glow to the cheeks. Being that at the moment I have this nice tan I have to apply a little more product so that the product is actually visible but I think in winter it would look amazing.


The beauty of it that it’s so natural and you can wear it for every occasion if it’s for daytime or night time. It also doesn’t conflict with any other makeup, or wardrobe, it is very not distracting. NARS also have a popular blusher called Orgasm, which is this quite similar but more on a pink tone than Deep throat and much more shimmery, because of the shimmer Deep throat is somewhat preferred more by customers.


The blush is very much buildable, but I don’t know if anyone darker than medium complexion would be able to enjoy this blush, because it is pretty sheer on the skin. I am quite light in general, so I actually prefer the sheerness because I don’t have to apply to carefully, or spend much time blending out the color.

I am slowly falling in love with this brand, and am so happy that I had the opportunity to have these babies :). Well that is all for now guys, keep posted for more as one of my family members might actually be on this blog 😀

I already have some ideas of what to give, but would be open for suggestions from you guys.




Shine On- Award

Hey guys,

So this week I was nominated by the lovely Mammu from Mammu Likes. Do check her out, she is an Estonian Beauty with a sense of style and fashion tips. Thank you so much for this Award, it means I am doing something right with this blog 🙂

Basically I have to mention 7 things about myself an nominated others for this award. Well I do hope I don’t bore you to that, so here we go:

1. Well something that people don’t think when they see me, is that I was quite a tomboy when I was a kid. I used to hang out with boys, play football and had even my cut out short. I was a carefree child and didn’t care what people said about me.

2. Nowadays I still keep that tomboyish side of me when it comes to handy work. I am quite a handy person, if there something that needs fixing, I just find a way to do it. I painted my room on my own and decorated it by myself and maybe with a little help from relatives.

3. I am quite good when it comes to building things with wood. At the institute of Art and Design we had an opportunity to try a particular workshop and i chose the wood workshop.  I carved wood, used the wood turning, created a lot of designs using wood and I love it.  I learned a lot when I was working with wood which actually helps a lot when it comes to my  job as a designer in office furniture.

4. Apart from my manly side, when I was younger I used to love designing clothes. I had a bunch of sketchbooks full of designs. I used to love watching the runway shows, with my sketchbook in my hands and drawing different outfit ideas that were probably fashionable at that time.

5. When I was a student I couldn’t afford buying new clothes, I had to go by with what I had. So I used to modify my clothes, so they always looked fashionable. I would create outfits out of nothing and when I went out I made sure I always looked good. I remember once I was given an ugly dress, and with the help of my mother which used to be a seamstress, changed it into this completely different and gorgeous dress.

6. To some extent blogging is my therapy. I love blogging because it reminds me to always enjoy the thing you have in your life 🙂 to always take care of yourself and be beautiful.

7. Some of you may know this already by I have another blog called “Work in Progress” which is about my weight loss journey. If you would like, you can check it out here.

So here are my Nominees in no particular order:












That is all for now 🙂 keep posted
