7 deadly sins of Beauty TAG

I've watched some tag videos on YouTube today and desperately wanted to write a blog post. I came across with the 7 deadly sins of beauty tag and decided to answer those questions :) Enjoy!

1. GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
The first thing it came to my mind was Essence gel liner in black. I wasn't completely sure about it when I bought it. Afterwards using it the first time, I feel in love with it. It literally stayed put on all day long without any touch ups. It was only few €. There are probably more inexpensive products I use and love, but now can't remember :)
My face skin care products are quite expensive, because I want to give the best products for my skin for it deserves only the best! :) ... So I mostly buy natural cosmetic products, which are not really inexpensive ...

2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?
My love/hate products are nail polishes. I always wear a nail polish (at least a clear polish), but I always screw it up! It takes so long to dry and it can really annoy me sometimes. Even though I don't completely destroy it, my polish chips always before going somewhere and don't have time to fix it. Argh. It can be embarrassing :D.
Hardest to get in Slovenia are products from MAC cosmetics (we don't have a mac store). Still don't own anything from MAC. The same goes for Urban Decay (I only have primer potion), but I've been flirting with their products for too long! On Ebay you have to pay extra for shipping ...

3. GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?  
Huh... there are few of them. Let's start with Afrodita anti-age hand and nail cream . OMG! This one smells sooooooo good, I could eat it, but I won't because it would be just a waste of product :P. (I posted a picture of it some time ago on my twitter).
Second one it will have to be 100% Pure Organic Blood Orange Shea Body Butter. All products from 100% Pure smell delicious, but this one smells to die for (I love citrus-y scents). Unfortunately, I ran out of it :(.

4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
That would definitely be a face primer! I own two primers and always forget to use it before applying my foundation. Sometimes I just imagine a picture how and what to use, and face primer is never on my mind. I know it can make a big difference, but it's just an extra step ... and there are already a lot of steps :D

5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
Probably mascara, because I have very short and thin lashes. I feel so naked without it. If I just put mascara on, I feel so much better. My eyes stand out, gives me so much confidence! I think my eyes are my best feature on my face. So I want them to be seen! :))

6. LUST: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
"If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything," said Marilyn Monroe. I kinda agree with that :). As it goes for physical appearance I prefer boys with longer hair ... dunno why :P

7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive as a gift? 
*thinking*thinking* I don't know! *still thinking*
I've remembered!! Kat von D  (she's amazing! I0m big fan of hers:)) has an awesome line with Sephora. Her palettes (especially Beethoven one) are the colors I would totally wear. And all that red-ish lipsticks! (I love me some red lipstick). I must not forget about the liquid liner! ... And if I go back to the second question... I would be happy to receive something from MAC and Urban Decay. Anything from them and I would be the happiest person alive :).
And a gift card can be an awesome gift, too :)).

I tag:
- Mateja and Mateja ;) from Mateji ustvarjata
- V form Gone2RehabBRB
- and all other ladies that want to write that tag blog :)

Have a lovely Friday night,

OOTD: yay or nay?

I usually don't post outfits of the day on my blog (I think I have posted OOTD twice), but my sister requested to write about combinations for spring (is this even a spring outfit? :P) ... When I was little I wanted to be a fashion designer, unfortunately I gave up on those dreams. I don't consider myself as a fashionista, never was, never will be, although I really like my yesterday's OOTN (because it was a night outfit :P).

So here it is:

jacket C&A
blouse New Yorker
shorts New Yorker (they were long when I bought them, cut them myself)
tights Tally Weijl
shoes Jello
belt C&A
necklace New Yorker
ring Six
handbag Tally Weijl

Nail polish NYX Girls in Bermuda triangle
Lip stick Revlon matte in 006 Really Red

Hope you like it. Would you like to see more outfit posts?
And here is a sneek peak of an upcoming post. Can you guest what it is? :)

PS: How the hell do I change "Domov" button in to "Home" button? :D

My piercings

This blog post was requested by Maja :). So here it is ...

Currently I have 8 piercings on my face: 4 on my right ear, 2 on left, 1 in nostril and 1 above the upper lip (aka Monroe).

My first piercings were the regular ones in the ears, which I have had for more than 10 years. Next were above those regular ones. So I had 3 piercings on right side and 2 on left. Those weren't that painful. And I don't remember if I had any difficulties with them ... it was so long time ago :).

left ear

Next one was a nose piercing. I barely remember any pain, I was more scared, because it was my first one on the face. It was kinda painful for first week, later on I didn't have any difficulties with it. This was about 6 years ago.

nose and Monroe

Next one was tragus piercing which I had it done few months after my nose piercing. The pain was quite big, but not unbearable. I had swollen face on the rirht side for some days, I couldn't really eat anything that wasn't liquid. But after that I didn't have any problems with it any more. And I had it done because all other girls had their helix piercings done and I wanted to do something different :)

right ear

The newest one is my Monroe piercing above my lip. In May it will be one year old :). It wasn't that painfull, my upper lip was swollen for some days ( I looked like Angelina :P. Joke, wasn't that bad). After two weeks it was completely ok.

I got them all done in Piercing Cult in Ljubljana. I really recommend them! I also buy my piercings there if I want to change them and from time to time I order them from CrazyFactory. They have amazingly huge selection of all kinds of piercings and they are really cheap!

I don't regret doing any of my piercing, although I think that all my 8 piercings are enough for now. Unfortunately I have no tattoos (yet!), I have few ideas, but I'm still searching for the right tattoo artist to do them :). 

Have a lovely Sunday,

Time for a new challenge!

I actually have 2 challenges - one is just for myself and the other one is for whoever wants to join me:).

Firstly, I will start writing my posts in English, as you may have noticed already :). Please be kind, English has always been my weakness, so I take it as a challenge. Always do something that scares you, right? :)

Second challenge is more health related. I've been reading a lot of books lately and I always find myself in strange positions while reading It's kind of a "book-asutra" :P or however you'd like to call it. While I was laying on my belly with my legs extended, I remembered an easy but effective exercise from waaaay back when I was still going to physiotherapy for my hip joints (never been injured, they just hurt me when I was walking, standing and even sitting too long). All you have to do is squeeze your butt as much as you can and hold it for few seconds, then release. Repeat countless times :P. And you  can do it for 5, 10, 15 minutes or even half an hour. It's not really time consuming if you read a book while doing it.

There is another great exercise for your bottom: one leg squats. Even regular squats are challenging enough (make sure you make them properly), but one legged ones are really really tough. And you need only one week to start seeing massive changes. Been there.

(Source: click)

So what's the challenge, you ask?

Whenever you find yourself in a "book-asutra" position (sorry, I had to do it again :P) - laying on your belly on a flat surface, sqeeze your gluteus maximus muscles for as long as you want. One minute is always better than zero! This goes for everything workout-related. I repeat that all the time.

And do one leg squats five times a day for five repetitions on each leg (5 times X 5 reps X 2 legs = 50 squats). It really takes a minute to do them 10 in a row. Sqeeze them in to your day - do them after returning from the toilet to your work desk, do them while you wait for your veggies to get steamed, do them while watching Deseprate Housewives or whatever show you're watching ... there is one more rule: if you don't do them 5 times a day, you have to complete all 50 (or whatever number is to make them 50) before bed time. It may sound impossible, but I guarantee you will see a change in one week only! If you don't, pease feel free to unsubscribe, insult me or beat me up when you see me in the street :P But that won't be necessary :) 
Here is a decriptions how to make them properly: click.

So, let's start! :) I'm starting tomorrow, because I'm still kinda sick (who follows me on Twitter already knows that :)). And this is the main reason for lack of posts lately. Sorry :(.

I hope my English is understandable :)) I was first thinking about writing in Slovene and English, but time is precious and my posts are always informative and long ... And I don't have all time in the world. I need to workout and eat and be awesome when I don't write my blogs. It's not easy :D

Have a lovely weekend <3

Stilska preobrazba!

Moj blog je doživel stilsko preobrazbo, če še kdo ni opazil :). Se mi zdi, da je bila že nujno potrebna ... Sem kar zadovoljna s končnim izgledom. Kako se pa vam zdi?

Kratek vodič:

1. Naslov mojega bloga ... Deja Zu :)

2. Prilagodi videz bloga, kakor se ti zdi bolj všečno, berljivo, privlačno ... Drugačen videz, vsebina ostane enaka :)

3. Tu se vrneš na začetno stran, kjer so vsi blogi po časovnem zaporedju. Se mi kar dopade tale koledarski pregled :)

4. Moj kratek opis. Se bo verjetno spreminjal, če se bom spomnila, da še kaj pametnega dodam :)

5. Moj kontakt. Pošlji mi e-mail s svojimi predlogi, prošnjami, vprašanji ... Rade volje bom prebrala in odgovorila na vse. In seveda, sledi mi na Twitterju, če še to nisi storil.

6. Hitreje preišči blog s pomočjo ključnih besed.

7. Na začetku se pojavi blog, ki sem ga zapisala nazadnje. Sedaj bo na vrsti tale :)

8. O meni, kjer ni zapisano nič več. Je le moja slika :)
   Arhiv spletnega dnevnika po letih.
   Kdo so moji spremljevalci in spremljaj preko Googla.
   In spremljaj, če še to nisi storil. All cool kids are doing it ;)

Upam, da vam je všeč :))

xoxo, Deja

Nekaj najljubših: februar 2012

Spet je prišel tisti čas v mesecu.. Da omenim nekaj najljubših, seveda :). Pa začnimo:

1. Kiko nail polish remover je najboljši odstranjevalec laka za nohte, ki sem ga kdarkoli uporabljala. Odstrani tudi temne in rdeče lake! Woohoo :). Menda ima Kiko tudi dobre lake za nohte. Prosim, če me nekdo v kratkem pelje v Trst, ker sem se nekaj lakov znebila v zadnjem času :D

2. E.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder duo. Ker sem bolj "Sneguljčica" kar se polti tiče, mi bolj odgovarja stran z blusherjem, vendar tudi bronzer ni slab in se ga lepo nadgradi. Velik plus je pa to, ker kože ne pusti oranžne kot večina ostalih bronzerjev :D

3. Nekaj dni nazaj sem pospravila svoja ličila in naletela na Eseence Stay with me longlasting lipgloss v 05 I like cotton candy. Od tega dneva dalje je skoraj vsak dan v moji torbici, ker je idealen za vsak dan ... in noč :). Nežna vijolična, ki res dolgo zdrži na ustnicah.

4. Moj najljubši balzam za ustnice trenutno je E.l.f. Therapeutic Conditioning balm Vanilla Creme. Lahko rečem, da obožujem vse od E.l.f. ? :)

5. In smo spet pri vijolični. Artdeco High Performance Lipstick v 498. Kot, da bi imela na ustnicah balzam in še prekleto lepo diši!! Embalaža mi je tako všeč, da jo kar naprej hranim v original škatlici, da se mi ne uniči :D.
slikanje z mobitelom od blizu je mission impossible :(

6. Zadnje čase se na mojih nohtih na rokah največkrat znajde Avon Coral Beat in Revlon 999 Blackest Black, ki je tudi največkrat na nohtih na nogah :). Koralna me spominja na poletje, ker ga obožujem in črna je vedno moja "to go" barva, poleg rdeče.

7. Tale nakup je bil popolnoma random in ob takih random nakupih me skoraj vedno kap, ko mi na blagajni pove skupno ceno ... Kakorkoli, če si ljubiteljica bleščic, potem Essence crystalliced glitter froster v 01 Frosted champaign in 02 Diamond dust pravšnja zate! Sicer sta iz LE izdaje, ki je verjetno že pošla... ampak po pravici povedano, se jaz nikoli nisem ukvarjala s tem kaj je v redni prodaji ali limited edition. Makeup lover pa tak :). Če ju imaš, potem si srečnica, če ju nimaš, verjamem, da obstaja še kakšen dober "bleščeči" izdelek :).
Bleščice na očeh in lip gloss na ustnicah :)

Če me še ne spremljaš na Twitterju, potem ne veš kaj dobrega zamujaš, stori to tukaj: klik. In Twitter bi bil lahko tudi pod številko 8, ker mi postaja vse bolj všeč. Bolj všeč kot Facebook. ^^

Ravno tako pripravljam nekaj novih zadev na blogu, ne bo ti žal, če ga spremljaš :)

Pa lep začetek tedna in če ne veste, kaj narediti danes ali katerkoli drug dan:
