Your ideas and suggestions – a recap

First of all, thanks to each and everyone of you for entering my giveaway and for all the lovely messages and ideas. I love giving gifts even more than receiving them, so hopefully we'll be able to do many more giveaways in the future.

Anyway, when reading your comments, I realized I had to somehow organize everything by category, otherwise I will randomly forget what it is you want to read about. So without further ado, here are your ideas and my thoughts about them. 

Review of high-end make-up (Marc Jacobs, Bobby Brown, Clinique, Benefit, …)
Many of you suggested these brands or specific products from these brands as something you'd like to read about. The thing is, I'm not too sure about most of these. I would never go and make an online purchase of, for example, Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Super-Charged Foundation ($48) without being able to test it out first. Since most of these brands are not available in Slovenia, these kind of reviews are less likely to happen and they would really not be that beneficial to most of you. I will most likely stick to reviews of products that are either available on Slovenian market or that are easily enough shipped over here from EU stores and are not crazily expensive. Jamberry nails for instance sound like fun, but I can't find any EU shipping so again, unlikely to happen.

Drugstore make-up brands (Essence, Catrice, Barry M, …)
I feel there are so many reviews of these brands out there already. I think that Essence and Catrice just held a blogging event in Slovenia and stocked-up the invited bloggers with their products. So I'm not really sure I'll be going out and buying the same collections just to do reviews on. But if I buy a product and have a strong (positive or negative) opinion on it, you will be the first to know :) I do think that this category is good for finding inexpensive dupes for high-end products, which was also one of the requests – this I think I will try to do as often as possible. A penny saved is a penny earned, or however that saying goes. 

Foundations, BB creams and CC creams
This is a topic I'm excited to tackle – I'm still on the hunt for some really good foundations and I've only had bad experience with BB and CC creams, so it's definitely something to look into. I think that the Winter time will be more about foundations and we can start trying BB and CC creams once the sun comes out in the spring :)

Nail polish and manicures
Nail polish, definitely. I love everything to do with nails. I can this category can easily extend to polish removers, different tools for manicure as well as some nail-strenghtening products. I have a lot of problems with my my nails being brittle as well so I'll be happy to go through some treatments for you. As for photos of manicures, I will try, but I'm generally not really very innovative – I work in a professional environment with a moderate dress code  - somehow, I don't really think that nails with Halloween pumpkins in this season or snowflakes in the winter would excite my colleagues much.

Hair products
This is definitely something I'm happy to write about. I'm constantly switching brands and I've got a pretty good idea about what works and what doesn't. So be prepared for several reviews of drugstore and more high-end products coming up soon. 

Body products
Again a group of products that makes my bathroom look like a crazy scientist's laboratory. I have so many that I love and some I absolutely cannot stand. I think I will do a review of my recent purchases and then we can start focusing more in detail on the new products on the market. 

Moisturizers, creams and other face products
This is a topic I am not too excited about, to be honest with you. I have a hard time separating between really good and only mediocre products when it comes to my face. I have some personal favorites I can write about but quite frankly, I'm not loving the idea of buying and swithching between moisturizers or night creams on a regular basis since I dread what it would do to my already sensitive face skin. I will give this some more thought, but I doubt that I will change my position on this. I will do a post about my skincare routine quite soon though so I expect that would be something you'd be interested in. 

Nail polish and manicures
Nail polish, definitely. I love everything to do with nails. I can this category can easily extend to polish removers, different tools for manicure as well as some nail-strenghtening products.

Falling outside of the categories above were some great ideas about natural products or home-made products that can improve your beauty routines, favorite products by seasons and many more. Your wish is my command, so hopefully I'll be able to provide you with some interesting reads. I become a real couch potato when the weather gets cold so I'll probably be doing more posts than usual.

What's your favorite thing about the Autumn and winter time? Let me know!

Until next time, stay beautiful, stay awesome!
