For all my life, I've always felt that I wasn't as good as others. I've always been insecure about myself and my body and I've been comparing myself to others. Everytime someone said something to me regardless of how big that thing was - even if it was something very small and unmeaningful - I took it way too seriously and thought that the person doesn't think I'm good enough.
Even on this very day, I still feel that way sometimes. Eventhough I've got a lot more confident for the past years, I still don't feel as good as I want to.

In Primary School I was so shy that even if some boy said something to me I just stood there and tried to think something to say, but I was too nervous to get anything out of my mouth. The first time I told a boy that I liked him, I ran away immediately without even hearing what he had to say as a response.

I hate how shy I was back then, and the fact that I'm still struggling to not to be shy - takes a lot of energy. I also have a habit of analyzing everything anyone says. I frequently think that, was that person really interested of what I just said or not or why didn't she/he say anything about it.

I haven't ever been that popular in school, and it's okay for me, but I've had a bad habit at envying my friends. Whether someone was prettier or dressed better or something else, I was always so caught up on them that it really made me different. I think me being shy had something to do with envying others. Because I've always been shy and thus felt that I wasn't as good enough as my friends. In secondary school I had a chrush on one of my classmates and told him, but unfortunately he wasn't that into me and later I found out that he liked one of my bestfriends that I was so jealous of. She was always the best at everything. She was the prettiest, had the nicest style and was a great person too. The fact that everyone always seemed to like my friends more than they liked me - made me feel insecure and had a really big impact on me.

Now that I'm on the third year of High School I still feel a bit insecure. I go to an art school and, well, I think I do stand out in there with all my make-up and clothes. And I frequently think what others think about me. Do I seem like I'm bad at school, because I use a lot of make-up and I dress up too much for school? A lot of students in my school are very shy and don't even use any make-up, and the fact that I'm so different compared to them makes me feel that they might judge me of it.

Only thing I've ever wanted from people has been acceptance. That people around me would really truly like me and be interested about me and what is going on in my life. This year I want to try not to envy others, because it doesn't only make you jealous of others, but it makes you feel bad about yourself if you continuously compare yourself to different people. The only person I really want to be is me and I want to make the best version of myself that I can be - just by being myself.


Here is an old picture of me really smiling :)

I remember when I used Dove's tanning lotion for the very first time and how thrilled I were of how well it worked. I used to think that I would never use self tanning, but after trying them out - you just can't stop.

I had followed Loving Tan's website for such a long time and admired their simple and beautiful tanning products and wished that someday I might own one of them myself !
And girls, that day came through a month ago when I received couple of their products!!
First off, even their packages are simply perfect!! I am currently quite into the colour Rose Gold so already for that I'm in love with their packages! They really know how to make girls love their products even more.

Before Loving Tan I had tried St.Moriz tanning mousse. It was good, but it didn't stay that long. It almost disappeared in the shower and their tanning mitt wasn't half as good as Loving Tan's.

Loving Tan's products contain naturally derived ingredients and the best part, Aloe Vera! When I used ST.Moriz mousse I felt it dryed my skin, but in contrast to Loving Tan I felt like my skin was even more hydrated after applying their mousse.

I don't want anyone to think that I hate St.Moriz products, but this is just my opinion and if someone loves their products it's totally fine!

HOW I APPLY TO ACHIEVE PERFECT RESULTS:

First thing I do is I take a shower, shave and exfoliate my skin using the Tan removing & Skin polishing glove so the tanning mousse will apply even more smoothly. Then I moisturize my fingers and toes, because those are the trickiest parts to get your tan on smoothly. After the moisturizer has dryed out I take the Deluxe applicator mitt and put Deluxe Bronzing mousse on it and apply it to my skin. After that is done I wait for 6 hours before I wash my skin ! And that's how you get the most incredible tanning ever !

Due to winter I don't use the Bronze shimmer Luminous cream, (which gives you the most amazing shimmer on top of your tan) yet, but just imagine how amazing it will look like in the summer!

You can see a clear difference with my left leg compared to the right one. In winter time I am pretty pale and that's why I absolutely loove using Loving Tan's products, because they make my skin look naturally tanned only with one layer !

Now you can get an amazing offer! Use my code 'aada' at the checkout when you buy any mousse product and you get a FREE tanning mitt !

This week I've been in our winter cottage with my family and I've been feeling soo relaxed! I've been so busy for awhile that it's nice to stand down for a moment and just relax and sit by the fire place.
Yesterday was Christmas Eve and god I ate soo much!! We ate rice porridge and went to the Church like we do every year. It's our only Christmas tradition that has stayed! Later we had a sauna and chilled in our outdoor tub. And of course we ate loads of food!
Had a truly wonderful time!

I know that I've been kinda lazy with my blog recently and I've only done posts where I show you what I've got (so sorry) so I decided that I would share a bit of what's up with me!
As some of you might know that I'm currently working at Zara. Almost two months has passed and I'm so glad, because I've met some really nice people and got a lot of New experience!
I work mostly on the storage and what it means is that I collect clothes from there and take them to the store section and put them into their own places. It's a really easy job now when I've got into the mood.
At the start I was so clueless, I even was quite afraid to answer the phone when someone called me and asked to check if there was a clothing that they didn't have on the store section. Heh yeah.
But now I'm always very glad to go to work, because I'm having fun there and that's the most important thing for me. I always want to work in a place where I enjoy what I do and not do it just because I'd get paid well.

If you'd like to hear more what's up with me please comment!

Today I received two packages from England: one from Fiinx and one from Jewellerybox !
Fiinx is a company which sells jewellery and make-up, while Jewellerybox sells silver and gold jewellery !
I got two Fiinx's matte lip creams and I already tested the other one and it's amazing!! It's easy to apply and it stays on through out the whole day! So in love with it!
From Jewellerybox I got four silver rings that are so beautiful and so simple. So happy that I finally got real silver rings that will last!

Check out Fiinx's website from here.
