My Magical Day |My Prom| My Make Up Crime

makeup-beauty-lipstick-make-up

So as you can tell from the title I will break down my biggest make up mistakes that I made for my prom night.

I did my own make up the reason for this was first I wanted to save money because having a prom night here in Bulgaria is really expensive thing .. Second I didn’t have the time to go and search for make up artist that will satisfy my needs. I had a few friends that went for a test make up session but came back really disappointed.

With that being said I’ve decided to do my own make up and because I loved make up and did a great job doing my everyday make up I thought that I will do the same with the prom make up.

First Mistake that I did – I had no idea what is undertone and all that jazz .. I was doing my everyday make up with eyeliner and natural colors and it was all good. But I saw a picture of Olivia Palermo with beautiful brown smoky eye and I thought to myself .. WОW this is what I want!

But as you can imagine there are a lot of things to consider. This make up look wasn’t for me just because my skin tone was different from Olivia’s.

Second Mistake that I did – I went to the nearest shop and bought the most expensive foundation in the store. Back then I had no idea that a cheaper foundation can do a lot more than the most expensive one. Moreover there was no samples of this foundation so I had no idea what I’m getting myself to.

When I got back home I did a firs impression if you like and I really liked it but here comes the big BUT .. the lighting in my room was horrible and as you may know there is a difference between the lighting inside and outside.

But because I wanted everything to stay secret until the prom day I did my make up with my “every day foundation” and not with the new one.

I’ve realized that the foundation wasn’t for my skin tone after the prom because I saw the pictures!

I looked really funny although I wanted to cry .. my eyes were awful (no blending .. strong color that faded away a few hours into the night but I will get to this .. ) my foundation was with pink undertone which looked .. I just can’t ..

Here is the picture because I can’t explain it .. It’s that bad ..

Third Mistake that I did – I didn’t set my make up so I spend around two hours making this mess .. and I didn’t set the make up .. No powder, no nothing! And probably I looked like this for a few hours but certainly the make up didn’t made it whole night!

So what you can learn from me .. read about season color analysis and do your homework if you will do your own make up. Again do your research – read, watch YouTube tutorials, articles and whatever you want just make sure that you know how to do the make up. Search not for the most expensive product, but for the one that will work for you! And last but not least set your make up! Don’t waste two hours of your life like this ..

My Magical Day |My Prom| 4 Years Ago

prom

It’s raining outside .. I took the chance to draw something .. It’s been a while since I did that ..

My Facebook notifications are going wild .. one after another sitting there in red waiting to open them ..

But what is the reason for all of that?

It’s been four years .. four years since I’ve graduated high school, four years since my prom night, four years went by .. like that! When I remember all of the emotions going through me .. happiness, sadness and the taste of freedom ..

I was so strict back then I loved learning but I hated the exams .. I loved the people but I hated this four walls surrounding us and holding us back. I couldn’t wait for the moment when I step out with my beautiful dress and go out and make my dreams come true! This dress was giving me powers like no other dress could. My mother and little brother made it for me! I wasn’t the prettiest girl with the best dress but let me tell you I was wearing love and power all over me! It made me feel like I can handle everything!

And I did four years later this dress is sitting in my wardrobe but I still feel her powers and message! 

I can do it! I can make my dreams come true! It’s so funny how a piece of clothing can make you feel all of this …

I hope that my friends from back then are feeling the same emotions and are going strong for their dreams!

And the question in my mind is “Am I the only one that has a piece of clothing that speaks to me like that?”

I want to show you pictures from that day.. my prom night .. the night that I felt like a princess ..

PROM_BLOG

P.S. Funny story

All that could go wrong .. went I wanted beautiful curls with settled make up and a dress that I was inspired to design! My inspirations for this day were Catherine Middleton and Olivia Palermo. Interesting choice right?

I love Kate! I love her fashion choices, I love that she represents the concept of a princess in 21st century! She has the “grazia” and the elegant touch that I like.

Olivia on the other hand I admire because she can style everything, I love that she can mix and match really well and everything looks awesome in the end!

In the end I looked like a hot mess fashion-wise but boy I felt awesome inside ..

Stay tuned for Part 2 – My Magical Day |My Prom| My Fashion Crime ..

Are you a new blogger? |Tips and Tricks| Part 2

blog2

Hello again!

In the previous part we talked about : blogging platform, blog themes and the blog’s category.

In part two we will talk about inspiration, content and people.

Savy’s 4th Tip

Content.

I’ve received a question : “Is it hard to have a blog?”

For me it’s not hard because I really enjoy it and I love writing and connecting with others through my blog. I love educating myself, improving and reading constantly. In the beginning I thought that it will be impossible to keep up and produce content like other blogs. But that is the important part you are not the other blogs!  You can choose and decide for yourself. Even though one blog can post five days a week this doesn’t mean that you have to do it. You choose the content, the topics that you want to write about and of course the timing of your posts.

On the technical side of things I can say that it’s not hard to maintain a blog. Again you just have to search for reliable sources and content. The more you read on particular topic the easier it gets. So don’t be afraid you can figure out everything and remember if you need help you can always get it.

Savy’s 5th Tip

Inspiration.

You may be passionate on topics but let’s face it you are not always inspired to write.. And now what?

Again don’t be afraid it happens to all of us! The easiest way to solve this problem is to write as much as possible when you are inspired. That’s what I do I batch content and then when it’s the right time I will publish. With this trick you have content for the days when you don’t feel like writing.

Savy’s 6th Tip

People.

For me this is the key component. It works not only for promoting your blog and work but connecting with others that have the same interest as you. For me this is like a gold. I get the excitement and the joy to talk with others and to share and connect.

The plus side is that if people like me and I provide them with valuable information the chance to share my work with others that need this information is really big. So it’s a win -win.

These are my tips for now I will  add more as I go in the future. For now I just want to tell you if you are passionate about something and you love to write don’t hesitate to start a blog. Don’t be afraid it’s not as complicated as it might seem and it will bring you so much joy!

If you have a blog, you can share in the comments your experience and your blog! I will be happy to read!

My Wardrobe Magic

wardrobe

Hey!

I want to share my little secret that helps me tidy my wardrobe really fast and efficient…

It’s super easy! My mother and I watched really interesting video online. In this video woman is folding a bunch of clothes using T-shirt folder. My mum really loves this kind of DIY projects so she took the challenge and made a T-shirt folder for us! I’m really loving it its basic as you will see from the pictures but it gets the job done!

 

How to make a T-shirt folder?

I’m sure that if you don’t want to make this yourself you can google it, find and buy one.

My point is that now I”m folding my clothes for a shorter time and for the first time I enjoy it! Just for a comparison I can fold all of my clothes and clean my closet for under an hour.

Wardrobe

 

At the moment I don’t have a particular order or color coding. I fold basically everything that can be folded and all of the dresses and other delicate clothes are on hanger.

 

So this is my tip for you. I’m curious do you have a secret for maintaining a cleaner and nicer closet?

Why Fashion is important ? |My story|

Why Fashion?

I love fashion and this is the reason that I want to write in my blog on this topic. But I also want to share the ugly truth ..

I’ve heard different opinions on the topic “‘fashion” .. from women and men who love it and express themselves to the opposite side … people who think that this is vain and not important.

Today I want to share my experience and thoughts!

In my school years I’ve kept myself on point.. always well dressed (you know that phrase dress for the position that you want, not the position that you are currently in, right ?) and I’ve always wanted to look presentable. In my dreams I was Victoria Beckham I had my own fashion company and always looked great.

But something has happened and when I got accepted in my university something .. broke. I no longer made the effort to dress up and look nice. Besides clothes I also loved make up .. but no more.

And at this point it may seems vain to you but I will get to my point I promise!

A few years went by like this and I still wasn’t being myself .. I had the twisted thought that I don’t need to look like before because people won’t get me seriously. (Remember the movie Legally Blonde .. yeah that’s what I’m talking about.)

As I’ve mentioned before my major in university was information broker and some of the professors didn’t think that this is a “girls profession” and there were times that I’ve received different treatment because I was a girl. I was afraid that if I put my outfit together it will be worse!

But now I’ve come to realize that it’s all bunch of crap! I’m sorry but that is the truth.

Fast forward to today ..

Today I’ve had a crazy day.. I had to go to work .. my schedule was full and here comes the realization ..

I was having lunch and then I had to buy present and go back to the office super quick. But in the morning I was doing the usual “just throw something and go” and because of that I had on me the most uncomfortable pare of jeans and t-shit. It was super hot outside my jeans were falling down because .. they are not for my body type (but I’ve bought them a long time ago and I didn’t care)  and I was so frustrated that I wasn’t being comfortable and my body was showing .. parts that you don’t need to see .. You feel me, right?

And when I got back in the office I was so sweaty and uncomfortable.. I was sitting on my deck preparing to give the gift that I’ve bought and I felt miserable. 

And then I’ve realized .. you dress up in the morning so you can go with your day and do the important things and not bother for the uncomfortable pair of jeans and awful T-shirt.

And this is really important if I don’t feel comfortable and good in my skin and outfit my performance on curtain things goes down .. and this is not good. And I don’t think that it’s vain to care how you look it’s crucial how you look and feel.

It’s for your own comfort.

Before when someone talked about fashion and how is not important I thought that this was ridiculous but I couldn’t use a proper example. Now I have one..

And from tomorrow I will make sure that I’m becoming me again and dress up and feel great!

I’m really curious am I the only one or it’s common? If you ever felt that way share with me in the comments or feel free to say “Hi” from the contact page. And if you have a friend with the same problem you can share the blog post!

I wish you a wonderful day and will see you next time to continue the fashion talk!

Are you a new blogger? |Tips and Tricks|

blog1

Hey!  How are you today?

For quite sometime people have asked me questions and wanted to help them with some tips on blogging.

Firs I wanted to say that I’m really happy and I would be glad to answer the questions! The other thing is that I have a blog for a few months and my tips and tricks will be wrote from my point of view now. I hope in the future to answer more fully and to add even more value on this topic.

So with this being said .. let’s begin.

Savy’s 1st Tip

Choose a platform and a hosting company.

I know that choosing a platform must be a challenge for some people. I know that for me it certainly was. Before Savy Su, I had one or two blogs on different platforms. Every time that I’ve read for a platform I felt the need to check it out and try to research it. And this is how I ended up using WordPress.

For my hosting company I choose those guys. It was the easiest thing choosing them because I really liked that the have all of the information that you will need and all of the questions that you will probably ask are already answered.

Savy’s 2nd Tip

Choose a blog theme.

When you choose a platform and do your research then it’s time to start exploring other things. For me the next problem was the theme. What theme should I use? Fun fact in this few moths I’ve tried three or four themes before THE ONE. Here it’s important to choose wisely and again do the research. There are different themes with different features. The other thing is that the theme is important to be user friendly. I had this problem with my previous themes were really confusing for the readers. It wasn’t user friendly, it wasn’t good looking and it was a mess!

While researching I stumbled upon this site which provide great themes and have a blog with really interesting content.

Savy’s 3rd Tip

Choose the category of your blog.

Again this one was really hard for me because the topics that I want to write were not only spiritual and emotional. I wanted to write about fashion and the every day life. And with all of this combined I made Savy Su The lifestyle blog. I’m aware that if it’s a lifestyle blog there are more categories available to add but I wanted to focus on just those few things.

When it’s time to find a job ..

funny-secretary

Hey today I wanted to share with you my experience and a little story from the time when I’ve searched for a job.
So let’s get started .. it was my first year of university when I’ve started searching for a job. I had no idea what I wanted to work but I knew that I need more experience and the goal was to find something connected with my major. I swear I think I searched for a job probably five or six months and my friends and family were tired from my complains that I had no success.

The problem was that I had no idea at the time how to structure my CV or cover letter moreover I had no work experience and these two combined .. really not helpful!

My other problem on the other hand was … when I thought that there was light in the tunnel and I liked the job the HR’s or people who were handling the new people were how can I put this delicately .. awful.
I don’t want to sound like a spoiled brat but there was that one time on my interview .. I was talking to a woman HR and at first she was really polite but when she saw my CV and saw that I was a student things had changed.

Even though when I applied for the job I was really specific that I’m a student and I need a part time job on my actual interview this woman was talking very different things from the job advertisement. At one point she told me that she didn’t care that I was a student and she won’t put up with my schedule.
I was really sad because this was not a one time thing and there were other places that told me the same but with other words.
At this point I wasn’t even angry anymore but I knew that I need to change something and this was my CV.
My university saved me because at the time we had a segment that was dedicated to CV and cover letters. (As information broker I needed to know this so this was helpful.) I’ve changed a bit my CV after this segment and then I’ve applied again. This time it was such a success! I found a great job with awesome people and I was really grateful and happy. So I needed a small change and I did it!

Other story from one of my close friends .. She is searching for a job and she went to what appears to be not a successful interview. She was really disappointed from the woman there. Again kind of a fail but she continues to search .. I wish her luck with this!!
But why I’m sharing this with you?

I don’t really want to offend the HR department I guess that was our luck .. but the thing that I’m trying to say is that it’s okay to search, it’s okay not to like a job. For me it’s really important the first feeling from the interview .. if there was something wrong I really politely thanked them and explained that I don’t think that this is the right job for me.
I really understand that for some of you it’s not practical to search five or six or more months but if you see that there is a problem I want you to know that you can solve everything and you will find the thing that you’re searching for!
Have you ever had a problem finding job or do you have a funny story to share? I will be glad to read your comment down below!
