10 items I recently purchased from Amazon

I think we all find ourselves aimlessly scrolling through Amazon looking for stuff we think we need, but really don’t. Like a wooden Maldon salt holder or a matte gold utensil set. And how about those Amazon workout sets!? Am I right?

I have zero shame ordering stuff from Amazon and return them if I don’t like them. Especially with clothes since they recently started the ‘Try before you buy’ option and it’s a game changer! You can order the item to your house for free and try-it, have it for 7 days and then return it if you don’t like it. They don’t charge you anything up front!

So let’s dive in and see what I ordered and if I decided to keep it!

  1. Bio-Oil skincare oil

I was originally influenced by someone in Instagram to buy this body oil and it did not disappoint. This was actually a re-purchase! It’s super lightweight, sinks into the skin and doesn’t leave that “oily” feeling. Also smells really great at improves and stretchmarks or scars you might have.I got the small, travel size so I can take it with me on short trips.


Price: Travel size 3-pack: $14.99 Full size: 23.99

2. White two-piece outfit

Since we’re planning a beach vacation I was so excited for this set! It looked super great on the picture and so I ordered it. So, it wasn’t horrible, but not for me… I thought it was going to be a cotton/linen blend (I know, what was I expecting from Amazon? but still…) and instead it was cotton/polyester. So didn’t love the material and the pants, well, they didn’t look like the picture. They were lined until the part where the split is, but then they were pretty much see-through. Also the top was longer than I expected so it didn’t really show a midriff. I decided to return it.

3. Milky white gel nail polish

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you know that Hailey Bieber’s glazed nails are IT right now. So naturally, I was determined to do it myself. I have been doing my own nails for 2 and a half years now (building gel, designs, anything you can think of) and so I always buy new colors and tools. When I looked up how to get this look I found that you have to put one layer of OPI Funny Bunny and chrome powder over it. Well, if you’re not a certified nail technician you cannot purchase OPI gel polish, so I went with the next best thing and bought this milky white color. It worked great, so definitely recommend.


Price: $6.99

4. 2-piece ribbed set (shorts & bra)

As a big fan of Skims I was pretty hesitant, but as much as I love Skims, I can’t justify having more than one set with that price point. So I decided to try this. And I’m glad I did! This set is actually very flattering and plenty stretchy. I ordered a Medium, but probably could’ve done a Small because the top is a little big, but I would only wear this at home, so I’m fine with it being not super tight. They are a soft material (not Skims soft, but soft) and not see-through. Plus the bra is double lined for extra hold.


Price: $27.99

5. Eyeglass holder – 6 slots

I’m a person who can never have enough glasses or sunglasses. I have about 5 prescription glasses and like a dozen sunglasses. Whenever I travel I always struggle because I was to take more than one, but packing them individually takes up too much space. So I got this 6-slot holder that you can hang up or roll up and snap for safe packing. So when I don’t travel I just have it hung up by the door so I have 6 pairs of sunglasses to pick from as I walk out the door. So if you’re someone who has lots of glasses, definitely get one of these.

6. Flexible phone holder

So this magic thing is the thing you didn’t know you needed! But for real! I was looking for something that I can bring with myself on the plane to mount my phone so I can watch movies but don’t have to hold the phone in my hands. Naturally, I turned to Amazon. I mostly found these phone mount similar to the ones you put in your car. Like you can mount it on the table when it’s folded up. It just wasn’t the thing I was looking for. So I decided to oder this flexible holder and see what it was about. It turned out to be a great find! So this holder comes flat and you an bend it to your liking to fit the surface. I not only was able to watch my phone on the plane but also in bed or anywhere I need a stand for my phone.


Price: $16.23

7. Galaxy light projector

Every once in a while I feel like dancing and want to turn my living room into a dancefloor. That’s when I order this projector. And I really like it, it lights up the whole room and you can connect your phone to it via bluetooth and play music through its speaker. It also comes with a remote and looks cool, like a black soccer ball. Since I don’t so my dance party that often, I usually return it, but if you like the vibe of it, it’s totally worth keeping. Next time for my dance party though, I will order a disco ball. LOL


Price: $19.47

8. Goo Goo hair extensions

Recently I saw that all the influencers I follow have gotten hair extensions and since I can’t afford salon extensions and the upkeep, I decided to try these halo extensions. It looked so easy, so I gave it a shot and I’m glad I did! They are made of real human hair and is super soft! You can wash it, color it, heat treat it! It miraculously matched my hair color perfectly and since they’re halo extensions that means that you just put the top of your own hair up and put the extension around it, let your hair down and pull out pieces with the rat tail comb that comes with it. It might sound difficult but I promise it’s not! It’s fun for a night out or if you want cute pics with a little more voluminous hair.


Price: 12” long $44.99

9. Kodak single use camera

We recently went on vacation and even though I had my phone, a Polaroid and my Sony camera with me I still wanted something that would be fun to take different types of pictures with. So I got this single use camera that has 30 frames in it (I think) and I’m excited to see how these pics turn out! It’s a fun, throwback item to bring to holiday parties, birthdays, vacations or just to have fun.


Price: $23

10. Wetkiss clear shoes

Aren’t these the most gorgeous shoes?! I was scared that they will be uncomfortable and cheap looking but I was very pleasantly surprised! They looked gorgeous and we’re very comfy! The crystals on the top are so pretty and the heel is the perfect height. The only think I didn’t get is that they came with some extra straps, but I couldn’t figure out how to put them on. For the price, they’re totally worth it and will look great for the upcoming holiday season!

Top 10 pop music documentaries

Who doesn’t love to see their favorite musician behind the scenes? I know I do! And thankfully a lot of them released documentaries about their life or about a phase in their lives. As a musician myself I obviously watched a lot of them so I’m bringing you the 10 best musical documentaries I’ve seen and some honourable mentions.

10. Jonas Brothers: Chasing Happiness

Ok, so I was never really a fan of the Jonas Brothers. I mean I liked some of their songs but wasn’t crazy about them, didn’t follow them. But the music they made after they got back together (What a man gotta do, Sucker), now that was something I actually really enjoyed. So when word got out that they’re releasing a documentary I was excited to learn a little more about them. The film goes back to the basics and shows how they started. I was super impressed that they wrote their own songs even back in the beginnings. They talked about why they broke up and how they decided to get back together. It’s an easy, entertaining watch and it’s guaranteed that you’re gonna like them a little bit more.

9. Gaga: Five Foot Two

Let’s start with the fact that I really love Lady Gaga, I think she’s a fantastic songwriter and singer. Having said that, unfortunately, I wasn’t the biggest fan of her documentary. It’s been a while since I’ve seen it but I remember not being very moved by it. Also, I guess me not remembering it very well means something too. I remember they covered the making of the Joanna album and talked about a chronic pain she has, but that’s about all I remember. If you love Gaga, it’s definitely a must watch, but if you are not a fan, I might skip it.

This documentary is on Netflix and you can watch it here.

8. Shawn Mendes: In Wonder

I think we underestimate the talent of Shawn Mendes. At least I did for sure. I liked some of his songs before but I really started listening in 2018 when he came out with his self-titled album. I loved songs like Nervous, Lost in Japan, Where were you in the morning? and Queen so I was very excited to hear his new music and watch this film. It was a nice mix between some concert performances and behind the scenes footage that gave us a glimpse of who he is and how he works. Even with all that I felt like I was missing the catharsis. I loved seeing how he wrote the new songs for his upcoming album, but when they covered him losing his voice, I kind of felt like I’ve seen this drama covered in many other music documentaries so I guess I was just expecting something different. But it’s definitely a nice film that will give you all the feels, especially when he talks about his love for Camilla Cabello.

This documentary is on Netflix and you can watch it here.

7. Whitney

This one is hard. This one is sad. This one is so necessary. Whitney was The Voice. She was someone who was able to make the US National Anthem into a commercial song they played on mainstream radio. If that’s not talent then I don’t know what is. This documentary shows the real Whitney, the troubled Whitney. The woman who tried to have a normal family life but she just couldn’t get away from her demons and they finally caught up to her on the tragic night of February 11th, 2012. Her talent, beauty and poise was undeniable. You could not take your eyes off of her when she was on stage. She was talented not just as a singer but as an actress (The Bodyguard, The Preacher’s Wife, Waiting to Exhale). One of the few women who were able to do that. In this documentary people who were close to Whitney tell her story with their own words, some home footage and interview segments of Whitney herself. It’s a great tearjerker and the story of a legend.

6. Justin Timberlake + Tennessee Kids

Ok, so technically this is more of a concert film than a documentary but it definitely deserves a spot on my list. I am a huge JT fan and this was one of his best albums. I had the privilege to attend this concert in Vienna myself and I was in awe for the whole almost 3 hour concert. YES!! You read that right! This concert was so long that he had an Intermission half way! The singing was perfection, the dancing was flawless and the music was exceptional. He played all his classic hits like Cry Me A Rive, Like I Love You, Rock Your Body, etc. But the best part was that they rearranged all of them to fit his big band era with The 20/20 Experience and it was magical. In this concert film you will be a part of the legend that JT is. Pump up the volume and get ready to dance and sing your heart out!

5. Amy

This one is another tearjerker. Amy Winehouse could’ve had a great and long career but she still became a legend. Her voice was something from another era, but her music was timeless. The soulfulness was out of this world and the topics she covered in her songs were unconventional. Some say her music is dark, I say it’s honest. She didn’t have a filter nor did she need one. Her raw lyrics and talent made her so relatable to millions of people. But like a lot of musicians she also had plenty of demons that she fought as long as she could until she couldn’t anymore. On July 23rd 2011 Amy Winehouse joined the infamous 27 Club. (This term is referring to the legendary musicians who died at the age of 27 including Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, etc.) Her tragic passing shocked fans and musicians all around the world and everybody wanted to know more about her. The documentary walks you through Amy’s childhood and how she worked and also how she struggled with substance abuse and a toxic relationship. If you want a candid look behind one of the most tragic music careers of the 2000s, this is the film to watch.

4. Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

I have always liked Justin Bieber. I know he got a lot of hate in the beginning and really all his career but I always thought he had something special. I love pure, feel-good pop music and I thought his first album had some great songs on it. When the documentary came out I was in the movie theater opening week. I was curious. I didn’t really know that much about him other than the fact that he was discovered on YouTube and he was mentored by Usher. So when I finally got to see the real story of how it all began I was very surprised to find out that he taught himself to play multiple instruments and was struggling pretty hard with money. I felt like he was probably exposed to fame too early but we know that lots of times these young stars are just moneymaking machines for greedy adults. In this documentary you get to see the kid that is Justin and how he likes to do pretty normal kids stuff and how he works his butt off. We all know what happened to him later, but this movie is all about triumph and success and it’ll make you love the Biebs a little more.

3. Britney: for the record.

We all watched Britney have a nervous breakdown in 2007 that forever diminished her innocent, girl next door image and painted her as a mentally unstable, even dangerous person. She was just hurt, confused, broken and sad. We all have those days, weeks, months. The only difference is that we don’t have paparazzis in our faces every time we leave our house. So whatever she was going through, the world got a front row seat to watch her mistakes and desperate attempts to get control over anything in her life. This 2008 documentary is shot right after she got under the conservatorship of her father. You see a broken and sad Britney clearly speaking about and acknowledging her mistakes, but also see a fully capable, multi-talented entertainer taking her place back in the music business with her album Circus. She talks candidly about everything but you can’t help but feel bad for her. I think this was probably the last time we see Britney really open up about those bad moments and let’s us see her as a vulnerable human rather than the larger than life pop star she is.

2. This Is It

I don’t even think I have to explain to anyone what this documentary is about. The world literally stopped on June 25th 2009 when the King of Pop died. All day every day that’s what you’d see on the news, that’s what people were talking about. And there was always a lot to say about Michael Jackson. But one thing was undeniable: he was the best entertainer that has ever lived. He was the master of his craft. He was very private and wouldn’t really let people into his world after what happened to him earlier in his life. So when he announced in early 2009 that he was returning to the stage the world went crazy for him once again. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to perform his groundbreaking This Is It concert for the world, so Kenny Ortega, the director of the tour decided to release the rehearsal footage that showed the real and sweet nature of the legendary singer and also his perfectionism and talent even at 50 years old. They show all the new technological inventions and costumes that were gonna be in the show all the while having the classic songs in the repertoire like Billie Jean or Beat it. It’s absolutely captivating and you can’t help but want to watch more videos to see the King of Pop in the prime of his life introducing the Moonwalk for the first time or bringing a giant tank on the stage for dramatic effect to bring awareness to the world’s problems during his performance of Earth Song.

The whole documentary is available on YouTube here.

Honorable mentions:

Part Of Me – This is Katy Perry’s documentary during the California Gurls era. This is at the height of her career but one of the hardest times in her personal life getting separated from her first husband. The show is super fun and colorful and if you liked her hits from that aalbum, I would definitely recommend watching it.

Miss Americana – Taylor Swift released multiple documentaries and concert films throughout her career and I could’ve mentioned all of them here, but I picked this one as this covers most of her career and show her becoming a strong, opinionated woman who’s not afraid to speak her truth. Definitely worth a watch.

Excuse me, I love you – I was pretty surprised about the fact that Ariana Grande hasn’t released a documentary already. But to be fair, this is more of a concert film than a classic documentary, but it’s still fun to watch as Ari sings her heart out – without one flat note, I might add – and freaks out about Mariah Carey calling and including her in one of her projects. Get ready to dance and sing along to this one.

  1. Backstreet Boys: Show ’em What You’re Made Of

It’s been almost 30 years since the Backstreet Boys first sang together and became one of the most successful boybands of all time. They have been through a lot as a band and as individuals as well. They dealt with deaths, substance abuse, breakups, scandals and health issues all the while gracing mainstream radio with hits like I Want It That Way or As Long As You Love Me. In 2006 Kevin temporarily left the band to pursue other areas of life and the rest of the boys (Brian, AJ, Nick, Howie) kept recording albums and touring the world to keep their career going. In 2013, for their 20th anniversary they decided to go big. Kevin rejoined the band for the album In A World Like This and they went on a world tour, got a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame and released this documentary showing them each going back to their home towns, schools and mentors. Even if you’re not a boyband fan this film will bring you a closer look at how hard they worked for what they achieved.

Tourist in my own country

Being a European in the US is a very interesting experience when it comes to fashion. I would dress up even when going to the grocery store in my country. I would make sure my hair looks nice when I went to the gym. Crazy!

But in the US people have different a relationship with clothes. They don’t have a problem with going to the grocery store in their yoga pants or even their pajamas. And to be honest, it’s quite a liberating feeling not giving a f&$k what people think. But you can’t get the European out of a girl, so I still make sure that my outfit is on point, even if they are sweats or yoga pants.

So long story short, when I finally booked my ticket home I was like “yesss, I will dress up cute every day and strut around town!” Well, that did not happen as I expected because I just wanted to be comfortable on my vacation. So even though I had packed my suitcase with cute stuff, I mostly wore my favorite Anine Bing sweater and baggy Zara jeans throughout the trip. Lol

Here are the few outfit pics I took on my trip home. Let me know which one is your favorite. ☺️

This outfit I’m rocking at Heroes’ Square is a full on ensemble from Zara. Lol (addict alert 🚨)

At Lake Balaton I was wearing my fluffy blue sweater with basic black jeans and black leather boots (it was October guys).

One of the most beautiful part of our trip was the Plitvice Lakes in Croatia and since it was super cold and sprinkled a little, I was kept warm by my favorite faux fur jacket and a cute bow in my hair to make it fun.

Here is the Anine Bing sweater that I bought specifically for this trip because it has all the cities I love and then some! Super comfy with my baggy jeans at my uncle’s house.

Rocking the baggy jeans with a simple great sweater and a leather jacket in front of the Opera house in Vienna, Austria.

Give it up for the Anine Bing sweater one more time paired with some skinny jeans, white leather boots and the statement leather jacket.

Hope you liked my outfits and I would love to know which one is your favorite. Let me know in the comments! 💁🏼‍♀️

The Sale craze…

You know that feeling when you have some time to spare and you end up in Zara with tons a clothes that look amazing on you and you just have this urge to buy them all? Well it happened to me again this time… I just love to search the sales and find pieces that are great with every other clothing I own. So here are a few new items I bought over the past few weeks…and yes, I have a problem! LOL

As you can see I have a shoe problem, I just cannot resist a cute pair of shoes and if they are comfortable, well watch out!

I had these white sneakers below, but I used them so much that I kind of worn them to death, so now I decided to make them my hip-hop dancing shoes and order a new pair for the spring.


The two mules are my biggest crushes this year. Last summer I already worn mules and loved them so much, so I bought 2 more. I don’t necessarily like my feet, which I know might sound weird, but true, so I love these kinds of shoes.

The furry sandals…well, I don’t think they need any explanation.


This year I was obsessed with velvet and I’ve been looking at this bomber jacket for a while now and I couldn’t decide if I loved it or hated it, so obviously I needed to buy it when it was 60% off. What?! Right?


Also, I’m reliving my childhood dreams while pretending to be a ballerina with shoes that I bought that you can check out in a previous post and also dressing in tulle. So here it is!


Embroidered shirts, shoes and jeans are very in this season, so I purchased a pair of jeans, which I couldn’t find a picture of, and these two gorgeous statement tops that can make any outfit into a special one. Looking forward to premiering my new babies soon.

Have you bought any beloved items on this year’s winter sale? If yes, let me know in the comment section.
