{Bare Love Hair} Luxury Hair Fuel Review

Hair is every woman’s pride and joy! And today I’m going to share with you one of my newly discovered secrets. A product by Bare Love Hair – Luxury Hair Fuel.

2013-08-19 09.50.02

Luxury Hair Fuel is hair and scalp treatment that is supposed to help rid hair of dullness and dryness and if used on the scalp, it prevents flaking and dryness.
There are two different ways you can use this product:
– applying it to towel dry hair prior to styling,
– massaging it into the scalp prior to shampooing.
And all you need is one pump!
Since my hair has been rather dry this summer, due to spending a lot of time outside in the sun, I thought this was a perfect product for me to try!
Surprisingly, one pump is enough, and two is too much! Trust me, you don’t want to overdo it, even if you have long hair, you’ll end up with greasy locks and that never looks attractive.
The good:
– it’s an all-natural blend of skin-compatible oils,
– it moisturizers and adds shine,
– smells beautifully,
– helps control frizz and defines hair’s natural curl
– it’s made with a unique OlioLove Technology that is exclusive to the brand.
The bad:
– it’s pricey $28 for 1 oz,
– the pump spits at you when you are trying to get the product out and squirts all over the place, which leads to product waste,
– your hair will look greasy if you do two or more pumps.

1.5 oz of Hydroxatone Anti-Aging BB Cream

2013-08-18 12.20.43

Hello and welcome to the Beauty Week on Being Zhenya! Today I am going review a BB cream by Hydroxatone (#BetterBB), which arrived in my mail box a couple of weeks ago! See, I’ve recently joined iFabbo and this was one of the first products I “bought”!

2013-08-18 12.04.54

I don’t think you know, but I’m the biggest BB Cream fanatic out there! I don’t use foundations anymore. There is no point, especially during the summer when it’s so hot and I’m outside a lot whether for work, gardening or sailing!

So let’s talk this BB!

The manufacturer claims that it:

– Shields the skin with powerful broad spectrum SPF 40,

– Protects from the elements and oxidative stress with potent antioxidants,

– Soothes and nourishes with natural anti-irritants and vitamins,

– Evens out skin tone and brightens dullness and discoloration with active Vitamin C and advanced encapsulated peptide,

– Reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and overall skin aging, as it firms and lifts, making skin instantly look flawless and more youthful!

And here is what I have to say: 

First of all it came in a bigger size than what the website said! More product for me said I and put it right on my dresser!
Second, the SPF factor in this BB is 40! How awesome is that? We need all the sun protection we can get these days, especially me, since I am in my late 20’s.
Third, the tone matched my skin perfectly (I got Medium shade), but it did go on quiet thick and the color was lighter than after I blended it in!

Fourth, the retail value of this was almost $50, and I got it free, nothing beats that, does it?
Fifth, it is lightly scented, and I know to some of you that may be a downside, but I actually like it!
Now let’s talk application:
In spite of the fact that it’s a cream, I always wear a moisturizer underneath. I spread my BB with fingertips and use a powder finish on top. Plus add blush. I haven’t been using bronzer as much this summer, because I’ve been getting so tan.

Stay tuned for my Go-to Summer (hot weather) Make-up Tutorial later this week!

Have a great Sunday!

See’s Candies Store Opening at Southdale Mall

 

 

SeesCollage1

There are two things that will make me go anywhere after a full 10 hour day of work – FREE and CHOCOLATE! And this is exactly what happened last Thursday at the See’s Candies Store opening at Southdale Mall. It was a Minnesota blogger event, so I got to see some of the old faces and meet some new bloggers as well, and of course Sam was my plus one 😉

2013-05-30 19.51.31

It was candy galore, I mean all sorts and kinds, and as it was mentioned later that night, one candy is a meal indeed!

SeesCollage2

See’s Candies was founded in 1921, and has been sticking to the 1920’s design ever since, from the black and white marble floor to the staff outfits!

SeesCollage3

An interesting fact about See’s one of the episodes of I Love Lucy was filmed there, check it out:

So we all got a chance to recreate our very own I love Lucy episode and pack a box of candy! Remember when Forrest Gump said – Life is like a box of chocolate? You never know what you get inside? Well I knew exactly what was going into that box! I didn’t know what was inside the chocolates, but that’s secondary 😉 And not to brag or anything, I was able to put 13 pieces of candy inside the box instead of 12!

SeesCollage4

And then to my surprise Sam goes for the hair net to pack his own box of candy!

SeesCollage5

A couple more interesting facts:

– See’s candies offers free samples all day every day!

– See’s candies also holds the Guinness World Record for the Largest Lollipop!

“The largest lollipop was 3176.5 kg (7,003 lb), and was created by See’s Candies (USA) at See’s Candies Lollypop Factory in Burlingame, California, USA, on 18 July 2012.

The lollipop was chocolate-flavored and had the following measurements: 4 feet 8.75 inches in length, 3 feet 6 inches in width, and 5 feet 11 inches in height. The lollipop also included a stick which was 11 feet 10 inches tall, though the weight of the stick did not count towards the record.”

And a few more photos to make your Monday sweeter!

 It was great to see you all ladies! Aren’t we a lovely group? Minnesota Bloggers Represent 😉 2013-05-30 19.56.28
Thank you so much See’s Candies for organizing this fun event for us! KJ, you were amazing, I loved talking to you! And thank you for all the candy we got to bring home! You were so so generous!
I also want to give a special shout out to the  Southdale Sephora! You ladies topped my night off! Thank you for the wonderful conversation and the compliments on my dress!

Art, Fashion and What in the World did I go to Chicago for?

2013-05-05 15.37.58

As you know I just got back from Chicago, but not all of you know what I was doing there!

You might have also noticed this badge on my sidebar:

So here goes:

I was contacted by Verizon Wireless to participate in their Fashion and Style Blogger program a couple weeks ago, and at first it seemed too good to be true! They offered to fly me to Chicago, pay for my hotel, take me out to SAIC Fashion show and a dinner at a hip restaurant, get a chance to meet other bloggers, and have fun!

And to top it all off I was also given a new device to play with.

Needless to say I agreed to come even before I asked for that day off at work 😉

The device turned out to be a Samsung Galaxy Camera that comes with 4G LTE, a touch screen, a 21x optical zoom and a whole bunch of other perks (which I am going to talk about in one of my later posts), plus you can upload photos and videos directly to your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube), it’s packed with editing apps, which definitely saves a lot of time! The only thing that it can’t do is make calls. And the funny thing is, Sam and I were at Best Buy the weekend before looking at that exact camera! So now my camera dilemma is solved and my husband won’t have to listen to me whining. Though he will be definitely taking more pictures for sure!

But I think I am going to stop talking now, and show you what the camera can do!

Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Style Voices program and have been provided with a wireless device and six months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.

$$$ It’s all about the money, or is it? $$$

money-saving-idea1-600x300

Today’s post is probably not going to be something you usually see on my blog! I am sure by now some of you have the impression that I am a girl who spends all of her paychecks thrifting! And I can see where this can come from! I’ve been posting a lot of hauls and outfits lately! Let’s be honest, I do sometimes get carried away at a thrift store, and I need to watch my budget, but most of the time it really is not that much compared to a grand scheme of things, or let’s say a recent study by InStyle magazine that says – An average woman spends about $15,000 on makeup during her lifetime, and that’s not including skincare!

Before Sam and I got married, I lived on the East Coast nannying for some families. I wasn’t making a lot of money, in fact I was barely making anything (I never thought of myself or my family as rich or poor, I knew I had enough, and I think that attitude helped me a lot in life) through the Cultural Care Au Pair program, but I had my ways! When I moved to New York, I learned about Freecycle.org, and almost all of my clothes, books and health care products came from there! I also went to monthly swap meet ups organized by GrowNYC, where I would bring all the stuff I didn’t want, and go home with something I liked. Sam had a hard time believing I had all that clothes, without spending as much as a couple bucks on the subway ride, but I had my savings account to speak for me!

I was an Au Pair for 2 years, making under $200 a week, this is the time when Sam and I were in a long distant relationship. So even though I didn’t get to see him that often, I spent a lot of money flying to Minnesota almost every other month! But by the time we got engaged I had saved up over $12,000. Then I went to Russia for 10 months, where I was able to work from home and add on to the savings.

Now that we are looking into buying our first house, having saved enough for a downpayment, I reflect on where I came from and can’t express how thankful I am for everything I’ve been given!

I was born in a small town 3 hours east of Moscow. My mother was a civil engineer, my dad was a college drop out. My grandfather was a retired military man, a former KGB agent as I discovered later in life, my grandmother was a pediatrician, and if you ask me, the biggest workaholic I’ve ever known! We never had much! When I was in 6th or 7th grade I wore the same pair of jeans, the same turtleneck and the same sweater my mother knitted for me to school every day! And I couldn’t care less, until one of my friends, who was a year older than me came up and asked why I was wearing the same clothes everyday. To this point I am still grateful for that comment! This is when thrifting and hand-made clothing came into my life! My mom went above and beyond herself knitting and sewing outfits for me! Going to fabric stores was exciting! Going to thrift stores was an adventure!

By the time I was in 9th grade I was getting constant compliments on my outfits from peers and even teachers, even though I had the same pair of jeans as one of the guys in class! But that’s when unisex was in, so I didn’t care! I also never said no to hand-me-downs, and even though I didn’t have older siblings, I had plenty of friends and knew enough Missionaries who always left clothes behind!

College came around, and I made sure I got good grades to get a monthly stipend through the University. Yes, I got paid to go to school! This is probably going to fall into the “Only in Russia…” category. This was also the time when more and more thrift stores popped up all over our town, and they often had great sales, that I couldn’t resist!

Thrifting is what helped me continually save up money for my trips to Europe and the States, and now that I live here, it’s becoming my meal ticket! Finding a great thrift store takes time, so today I am going to share some of my favorite locations here in the Twin Cities, and the best times to shop there!

Salvation Army in the Warehouse district900 N 4th St, Minneapolis, MN  – every day is a 50% off a certain color, so stop by often! Plus they offer 50% off clothing during most major holidays! I am not even going to mention the Target overstock located in the basement – you have to see it for yourselves!

Steeple People on Lyndale and Franklin – 2004 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis, MN – I blogged about it before, and I will do it again – they have great vintage selection, beautiful artwork and prints, great household section, etc., etc. The only downside is – they only take cash or check!

Goodwill in Hopkins1025 Hill St, Hopkins, MN – This was my go-to Goodwill when I used to babysit for a family in St.Louis Park! And I always referred to it as the Hopkins Goodwill, or Goodwill on Excelsior Blvd. Now why this particular Goodwill? – It’s cheaper, it has more vintage and authentic items, it’s been good to me! Generous if you want to put it this way! I can always find something that I like there! Now why am I not mentioning the Goodwill in Minnetonka, or Goodwill in Roseville, you may ask? The Minnetonka Goodwill will always be famous in my book for the Xanax pills I found in a pocket of one of the sweaters bought there! And Goodwill in Roseville is too good for me to be sharing it with you, but now I did, and now you know!

Savers – I am yet to find a Savers that I don’t like! Seriously, they need a Savers in every state and county! They never overprice vintage items, and the only pieces of clothing that can be pricey are the brand new ones, with original tags still attached. And don’t forget to sign up for a Super Savers Club Card, they will send you emails with special promotions and coupons!

So here you have it, the story of my life that revolves around thrifting! And I couldn’t be happier! After all, it’s not all about the money!

Happy Thursday everyone! And don’t forget to stop by tomorrow for a DIY friday fashion and style project and an important BeingZhenya announcement!

XO,

Z

PS. Please keep in mind that my husband and I don’t have any student loans to pay off, our monthly expenses are limited down to rent, groceries, gas and car payments, plus the occasional going out and thrifting shopping sprees!

In the next post on money related subject, we’ll talk about freebies and the best websites where you can get them!

 

Bath and Body Works Forever Red Perfume Review / Обзор на парфюм Forever Red из Bath and Body Works

 

This is a review I wrote for one of my friends here on WordPress back in January, I am only publishing it now, hope this is a helpful review that will prevent you from buying another unnecessary product out there! 

Mary from Budget Grad Student has recently asked me to review one of the products she received in her Influenster Cosmo Vox Box. Which I agreed to do! Unfortunately with all the holidays and somewhat hectic work schedule, I am only able to do it now. I actually think it’s better this way, because I’ve been using this fragrance for almost 2 weeks now.

Of course every girl loves perfume, but not all perfume is good. And even though “Bath & Body Works travels the world to find the latest trends and most beautiful scents. They never rest in their commitment to bring the world’s newest freshest fragrances for body, hand and home” I was a tad bit disappointed in the scent.

The sample came in a cute little 0.25 oz/7 ml bottle, which made it super portable and easy to carry around, which I did! Took it to work almost every day!

To me the scent was very sweet and floral, turns out my nose wasn’t all that wrong! Here is the Overview you can find on the website:

Our most luxurious longest lasting fragrance blends opulent notes of fiery red pomegranate and delicate peche de vigne, a rare and fleeting French peach. Soft petals of red osmanthus give way to notes of addictive velvety marshmallow and a surprising finale of rich vanilla rum that leaves an unforgettable impression.

  • Top Notes: Fiery Pomegranate, Rare French Peach, Luminous Apple
  • Mid Notes: Red Peony, Night Marigold, Red Osmanthus
  • Dry Notes: Rich Vanilla Rum, Velvety Marshmallow, Oak Wood

Marshmallow! That explains it! Mary, you would’ve totally had a headache!

Now long lasting factor was something that I was looking forward to! Not a lot of fragrances last on me, but after trying this one, I have to say one thing:

I had fragrances from CVS pharmacy, that lasted longer!

And even though the scent decided to stay on me for only two hours or so, it did make it way into my head, and gave me a headache as well!

Then I discovered that the perfume itself cost $44.50 (of course it comes in a 2.5 oz bottle!), add a few more dollars and you can afford a really nice Lancome or Estee Lauder fragrance.

All in all it wasn’t very long lasting and too much Vistoria Secretish to me, I’d definitely think twice, even thrice before purchasing this scent! There is so much more one can do with 45 bucks!

Don’t forget to check out Mary’s blog and let me know if you’ve tried this fragrance!

Cheers,

Z

Недавно одна моя знакомая блоггер – Мэри с Budget Grad Student попросила сделать обзор на присланный ей продукт. Многие из вас знают про сайт Influenster.com и про коробочки пробников, которые они высылают абсолютно бесплатно. Я конечно же согласилась. К сожалению со всей этой праздничной суматохой пост выходит только сегодня, но лучше поздно, чем никогда!

Так вот Мэри пришла так называемая Cosmo Vox Box, в которой находился пробник нового аромата от Bath and Body Works Forever Red. Дело в том, что у нее аллергия на запахи, они вызывают у нее головную боль, поэтому обзор делаю я.

Какая девушка не любит парфюм. Но духи духам рознь. И, хотя, Bath and Body Works заявляют, что “они ищут новые тренды и самые утонченные ароматы по всему свету, что их миссия принести в ваш дом новые и самые свежие запахи”, я была немного разочарована в их последних духах.

Пробник пришел в милой 7 мл бутылочке, это позволяет носить его с собой в сумке, что я и делала!

Мне запах показался сладким и цветочным, и как оказалась, я не ошиблась! Вот как описывают аромат сами производители на сайте:

Наш самый люксовый и стойкий аромат сочетает в себе нотки огненно красного граната и утонченного peche de vigne, редкого и мимолетного французского персика. Мягкие лепестки красного османтуса придают запах притягательного бархатного зефира. А в самом конце как будто сюрпризом раскрывается глубокий запах ванильного рома, оставляющий незабываемое впечатление.

Высокие нотки: Огненный Гранат, Редкий Французский Персик, Яркое Яблоко

Средние нотки: Красный Пион, Ночная Календула, Красный Османтус

Сухие нотки: Насыщенный Ванильный Ром, Бархатный Зефир, Древесина Дуба

Зефир! Теперь все понятно! У Мэри точно была бы головная боль!

Аромат был также заявлен, как стойкий, чего я очень ждала! Не все ароматы на мне держатся, но попробовав этот запах, могу сказать только одно:

Now long lasting factor was something that I was looking forward to! Not a lot of fragrances last on me, but after trying this one, I have to say one thing:

I had fragrances from CVS pharmacy, that lasted longer!

And even though the scent decided to stay on me for only two hours or so, it did make it way into my head, and gave me a headache as well!

Then I discovered that the perfume itself cost $44.50 (of course it comes in a 2.5 oz bottle!), add a few more dollars and you can afford a really nice Lancome or Estee Lauder fragrance.

All in all it wasn’t very long lasting and too much Vistoria Secretish to me, I’d definitely think twice, even thrice before purchasing this scent! There is so much more one can do with 45 bucks!

Don’t forget to check out Mary’s blog and let me know if you’ve tried this fragrance!

Ho-ho-ho Green Giant

Thanks to Product Hoochie, I have recently joined BzzAgent, and unlike other “freebies” websites, this one seems more legit than others. Maybe because I’ve been getting and will be getting a lot of products to try and review, maybe because it’s easier and hassle free?!

Today’s post is dedicated to the Green Giant Veggie Snack Chips, that I got in the mail last week!

4879800254_51561951048628352692

533824_10152770631825604_1682585212_n

What was in my box?

  • A FREE full-size bag of Green Giant Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips with Zesty Cheddar
  • A FREE full-size bag of Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt
  • 4 Sample pouches that were immediately utilized by my husband as an addition to his lunch (that I pack every day!)
  • Pass-along coupons

Here is what Green Giant says: 

  • Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips with Zesty Cheddarare crispy tortilla chips made with real vegetables like carrot, broccoli, and tomato, plus 17g of whole grain
  • Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips with Sea Salt are made with real sweet potatoes and 14g of whole grain, with 40% less fat than regular potato chips*
  • *Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips (6g per 28g serving) have 40 percent less fat than regular potato chips (10g per 28g serving).

Here is what I think:

Sweet potato chips taste just like any other sweet potato chips, and are nothing extra ordinary. They are a good snack, and that’s just about it! I am not a huge fan of sweet potatoes to begin with, but I can tolerate it in this shape and form!

Zesty cheddar taste very similar to Doritos, but don’t leave you with orange fingers like the latter, so I guess that’s good! But they aren’t that healthy, as you might think they are in the beginning! I tried them with hummus, and that tasted good, but again, nothing that made my taste buds explode!

Am I going to buy this product? Maybe, depends on whether or not it’s on sale, and whether or not I can use my coupons on it. Otherwise, it’s really nothing new and different!

Let me know what you think of these, whether you got them for free, or bought at the store!

Cheers,

Z

PS. This product was sent to me for free through BzzAgent

Nothing New: Furniture

Hey everyone, I hope you all had an amazing week and a Happy Easter 🙂 I know a lot of my friends and readers in Europe will be celebrating later this spring, so get ready for the Easter Bunny to hop overseas!

Today’s blog post is about furniture, and since some of you know my minor (*COUGH* yeah, right) obsession with Freecycle.org, the post is going to be about “not so new”, but beautiful, vintage and FREE furniture!

I finally got tired of not having a coffee table in our living room, and wrote a Wanted post on Freecycle, and here is what I got:

482307_10152742014205604_843601961_n

The lady who gave it to me was so nice, she even delivered it to my apartment building! I am serious! I was shocked too! Trust me! Most of the time it’s your responsibility to go and pick something up off of freecycle, but this time I guess I got lucky! It’s a wooden table, definitely vintage! I looked under it, and it said Massachusets! I am such a sucker for vintage furniture! It’s so beautiful and elegant, that Ikea and Target simply become a blasphemy!

I’ve acquired another piece of furniture this week – a night stand/end table, thanks to my mother-in-law! Since our bed is so high, very few nightstands work with it! I have been looking for a tall nightstand for months, because that corner between the bed and wall started to feel more and more empty with every day that went by. So Sandra, dropped off this beauty last Tuesday, and it fit right in!

9601_10152732008515604_51582850_n

I love it, don’t you? I immediately took Sam’s old green lamp out of storage, and placed it on the table:

9963_10152741256310604_779672376_n

Now it reminds me of a short story by a Russian writer Alexander Green, called the Green Lamp, which I am planning on translating and posting on here this week! I love Russian literature, makes me feel nostalgic, but at the same time appreciate my background and culture!

An oldie, but a definitely goodie is my console table, which has been recently featured in my “Early Stages of Hoarding” post, and is another great freecycle find, that I got from a woman, who said her husband was a hoarder (Oh-oh!)

09182011285

Some other items that I have freecycled include (but are not limited to 😉 )

– books

– clothes

– vintage

– kitchen appliances

– arts and crafts supplies,

and the list goes on!

It really is a great source, but don’t forget that it’s not all about getting, it’s all about GIVING!

Palmolive Fresh Infusions First Impression/Первые впечатления от средства для мытья посуды Palmolive Fresh Infusions

It’s this time again! Review time that is. I received another product through my Influenster membership, and this time it was Palmolive Fresh Infusions Dish Soap.

72256_10152450276165604_350380499_n

We don’t have a dish washer in the apartment, so everything has to be washed by hand, and if you know what it’s like, you know that it’s nothing but pain. I have never met a person who enjoys doing dishes.

Since we first moved here, we were dedicated Dawn users. Our first bottle lasted us about a year (I kid you not!) and the Palmolive that we received as a mocking move in gift from the rental company lasted only about a month, and of course I thought, never again!

Until I got this box! The quality of the soap is great, it washes dishes wonderfully, foams up well, looks nice standing there by the sink 🙂 Yes, that’s important too!

I didn’t like the dispenser though, and the scent wasn’t as strong as I was hoping for. Out of the the three scents: Lime Basil, Lemon Thyme, and Ginger White Tea, Lime Basil is the strongest.

I also got several coupons for this product, though I think I am pretty set with dish soaps until 2015 or something like that 🙂

The soap retails for about $2.60 and is available at Wal-Mart and Target.

Overall it leaves the dishes clean, fights tough stains and grease, and next time I need to buy dish soap, I will definitely consider it!

Happy dish washing to you!

И снова настало время для обзора. В этот раз мне прислали средство для мытья посуды от Palmolive. Прислали его бесплатно через сайт Influenster.

Так как в нашей квартире нет посудомоечной машины, всю посуду мы моем руками, а вы сами знаете, как это! За всю свою жизнь мне еще не довелось встретить человека, который обожает это делать.

Когда мы въехали в эту квартиру полтора года назад, мы пользовались только Dawn, и первая бутылка у нас простояла около года, а средство Palmolive, которое нам подарила компания, владеющая домом, закончилось за месяц!

Я зареклась никода не покупать Palmolive, пока не получила эти средства на обзор. Новое средство оказалось отличным, хорошо пенится, отмывает грязь, экономно расходуется, и хорошо смотрится на раковине (что тоже важно!).

Мне не очень понравился дозатор, и запахи оказались не такими сильными, как я ожидала. Из трех, которые мне прислали: Белый чай и Имбирь, Лайм и Базилик, Лимон и Тимьян, второй оказался самым сильным.

В коробке также были купоны на скидку в $1.50, но мне кажется что средств для мытья посуды мне теперь хватит до 2015 года!

Одна бутылка средства Palmolive стоит около $2.60 и купить его можно или в Target, или в Wal-Mart.

В итоге хочется также отметить, что посуду это средство моет хорошо, и если когда-нибудь мне понадобится купить новое, то это вариант!

Хорошего вам мытья посуды!
