Silvia’s questions:

This award is about happiness, so all the questions are related to it!

Why not talking about the things that make us happy? Can you tell us your favourite…

  • place: Somewhere abroad.If you want me to be more specific, ok – I’d love to visit Switzerland, it’s my dream destination))
  • film/tv show: The Vampire Diaries!!!! Guys, I literally cannot live without this TV show.
  • song:  I don’t like picking favorites, so ALL songs by Miley Cyrus
  • activity: Swimming (not professionally, in a pool,  but with a mask underwater!) This is so fascinating and captivating to observe and explore the underwater world and its inhabitants!)
  • drink: Kombucha! Haven’t you heard of it? It’s super tasty (tastes like soda) AND more importantly, it’s very good for health.I recommend you to try it some day
  • food: Uh.. That’s a tough one.I like different food, but I guess my favorite is croissants baked by my mom
  • holiday: The International Children’s Day  (1st of June) Why? Because it’s the very beginning of SUMMER, my fav season of the year.
  • book: Girl Online (1,2,3) I can be very choosy when it comes to books but this one won my heart from the very first page.

Name 3 things that make you happy…

1)My family.They always support me and are always there for me when I need them.I love them so much!! 😉

2)Nature. Like I told you before, in my previous posts – beautiful landscapes make me satisfied and calm

3)Music. Although I listen to music quite seldom, I’m sure it’s what changes and motivates me! I try to find calm songs or even melodies without words (my favorite is bagpipe) and they give me a lot of pleasure. While traveling by train or a bus for a long distance –  I can’t help staring at beautiful sceneries behind the window.If I turn on music in my earphones – oooh, let’s just say I lose control over myself… I can start crying and want to move to the wild jungle – or I can become very cheerful and want to do something fun – or I’m itching to donate money to a charity – IT ALL depends on the song and what I see behind the window

My favorite posts on my blog…

Everyday makeup : For & Against

Quick note: I’m not an expert in this area so I won’t be giving any advice on how to apply makeup and things like that.


Hey, guys 🙂 How was your day? Mine was pretty boring, though I finally forced myself to read some history books

Now, let’s get to the point.

So, why on earth do we put on makeup in the first place? The answer is easy – to look prettier! It gives a person more self-confidence, which is essential for a teenage girl, who already has a lot of complexes connected with her weight, height, clothes etc. But there’s also another reason – to conceal skin imperfections like pimples, freckles etc..(In this case, it’s OK to put on some makeup every day)

I’ve been thinking a lot about whether to wear makeup every day or only for particular occasions… (not that type of makeup which hides imperfections, but the one that enhances your beauty, for instance, lengthens eyelashes)  and I’ve come to a decision that the latter wins! Why? Read below↓

These days pretty much every teenage girl puts on at least a little bit of makeup, right? Some of them do it every single day, no matter where they’re going – to a party or to walk a dog.These ones I call “makeup-obsessed”.There are also girls who do it occasionally, which is much better in my opinion.

Here are the main drawbacks of everyday makeup:

  • Time-consuming

It takes up a lot of time AND energy! You have to get up earlier and stand in front of the mirror for at least 20 minutes!

  • Spoils the skin

The quality of your skin deteriorates: you can get more acnes and the smoothness will soon go away!

  • A lot of money

Good cosmetics usually is quite expensive, therefore you’ll probably have to sacrifice something in order to buy a new set of makeup.


Moreover, if you apply makeup every day, people around you will get used to how you look and will take it for granted.But when there is a special event when everyone will look prettier than they usually do, YOU will look the same and nobody will compliment you as much.Whereas, if you don’t wear makeup every single day, and put it on for this special event – I’m sure everyone will be amazed by how stunning you look!

Considering these facts, I would recommend you to put makeup for special occasions, not on a regular basis. You’ll be able to buy expensive cosmetics because you won’t use it up in 2 weeks.Plus, your skin will stay young and fresh for a longer time.

I personally just paint my eyebrows, that’s it 🙂

What do you prefer? Share your opinion with me by leaving a comment! Thanks for reading 😉

Struggle 1: making friends

As you’ve already guessed, today we’re gonna be talking about friendship.

In my previous post – in the summer bucket list, to be exact – one of the items was

To make at least 5 friends

But I forgot to mention HOW exactly to make them.

Many people nowadays feel lonely due to the lack of friends.I’m not an exception, really.For some reason, I find it super hard to find a suitable person.It seems like the only one I can be true friends with – is a clone of myself ( who obviously doesn’t exist)
But is it really that difficult??

Here are some tips that will help you with that:
1) Do not be too choosy
It’s a common mistake that a lot of people make.When we see a person for the first time, it’s usually their appearance that determines whether we want to come and start a conversation or not.
But it is definitely not right! When choosing a boyfriend or a girlfriend, we can pay attention to how the person looks like, but definitely not in this case! Remember, the nationality, height, appearance and other details don’t really matter – if you guys are soulmates, nothing can change that.
2)Balance between speaking and listening
Always try to keep this balance, otherwise one of you will get bored.There shouldn’t be any dominant speaker in your conversation,( as well as in your friendship).You two have equal rights to listen and to be listened to.
3)Do not try to seem any cooler than you actually are
It sounds so corny, but still  — BE YOURSELF.You won’t be able to pretend throughout your friendship – eventually, you will have to show your real self.If the person doesn’t like you – don’t worry! There are lots of people out there willing to accept you as you are.
4) The more friends – the better
Don’t be lavish with friends.The more you have them the better.If you’ve made a really good friend – don’t think that it’s enough and you do not need the others anymore.Anything can happen, and the most distant friend can become your closest one, and vice versa.
5)Take your time
Getting to know a person is not a quick thing to do.It takes quite a lot of time.We always wish that we could skip to the part where we’re comfortable with each other.But all the best friends were once just strangers to each other – and as the time passed by, they’ve become very close.

I really hope that some of my tips helped you, or encouraged you not to give up and keep looking!
Please let me know if you’ve read my post (just leave a comment, or subscribe – whatever works for you) and I’ll be happy to post more!
