Life update and blog plans + giveaway

Dear beauties, 

those of you who follow me on social media know that my life changed a lot in the past couple of months. 7 weeks ago I became a mom and my little bub is now the center of my universe, my little prince, my everything. Little one was born on 1st of April (hence many people didn’t believe me when I announced it to the world) and has been really good to his new and a tiny bit scared mum – growing a lot, sleeping a lot and generally being the best baby in the world. And no, I’m not biased at all :)

After all of these weeks I can now finally say that we’ve got a daily routine going on, meaning that my life is slowly again getting back on track and I can afford myself an hour or so every day to concentrate on my blog. But one thing that a baby taught me is that a schedule is important, so I’ve decided to give a little more structure to my posting. I decided on a schedule that goes approximately like this...

On the 1st Monday of the month, I will write a post about everything new I bought and received in the past month. This will not be reviews, but a haul type of a post. If you are interested in anything you see in that post, keep your eyes open on the 3rd Monday of the month, since I’ll be doing a review of all the new products then. 

On the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, I’ll be doing a bi-weekly make-up & skincare basket, showing you the products I’ll be using for the next two weeks. This will keep me in check and ensure that I keep using and trying new products and not only neglecting them for old favorites.

Tuesday (as well as Saturday) will be my days off when I’ll only post if I feel like it or a very exciting thing happens (like a giveaway or an event). 

On Wednesdays, I’ll be showing you new product launches that I’m excited about and occasionally doing a wish-list post about everything that I would like to purchase for myself.

I’m using Thursday as a “free” day – the day I will write about anything I want, but you can certainly expect more lifestyle posts and random rants about my life and motherhood.  

Each Friday, I’ll do a post about the Superstar of the week – the product I’ve been loving most that past week.

As I’ll be taking the Saturday off, expect a big post each Sunday. This will be a very “beauty blogger” sort of post – Favorites, Top products, Dupes, Routines, Blogging and Photography, to name just a few.

It’s a big plan, but I hope I can stick with it, since I’ve missed my blog a lot in the past few months and I can’t wait to get back to writing about one of the big passions in my life. I mean, I did my make-up before heading off to give birth, so I think that it’s only fair I give it the place it deserves in my life.

Since I’ve been away for so long, we also missed the birthday of my blog – it’s now two years old! To celebrate, we’ll be doing a giveaway with some products that will make sure that one lucky lady (or lucky lad) will be looking great for the summer!

The lucky winner will receive Avon’s Footworks Soak and Scrub so you can get your feet ready for the flip-flops. I’m including the Avlon Keracare Silken Seal which will help your locks be silky and luscious. A Labello is a definite must in each handbag and as someone who can never have enough lip balms, I ensure you’ll love this one. To have a beach ready body, the package will also include a Rituals body cream that smells like a dream, and a Monu Tan Work tan maintainer that will keep your tan lasting long into the autumn.

As an extra bonus, the package will also include 3 surprise beauty products!

To enter, you have to follow me on Facebook and Instagram (@low_maintenance_beauty), so don’t forget to leave your Instagram name in the comments! I would appreciate it if you share this post on Facebook or Instagram with your friends and give them a chance to win this bundle of products as well. And if you have the time, leave me a comment on this post telling me what you’d like me to write about – it can be a product, a routine, ... anything you’re interested in and I’ll try to make it happen.

The giveaway is open to EU only and will last until 30th of May when I will randomly choose a winner with the help of my hubby. The winner will be notified via Facebook. He or she must send me their address in 3 days, otherwise a new winner will be chosen.

Best of luck everyone. Until next time, stay beautiful!


  1. Me veseli, da si nazaj! Bi pa sedaj, ko si mamica rada prebrala malo več o negi dojenčka. Drugače pa ti na instagramu sledim pod imenom rebeka_mylittlewonderland

  2. Čestitke in da bo priden še naprej in da bo vrnitev na strani bloga čimbolj prijetna! ;) Mene bi pa zanimale objave v zvezi s produkti, ki si jih uporabljala med nosečnostjo ... Kakšno olje proti strijam, mogoče bolj naravni izdelki... Sicer pa najraje berem objave v stilu "empties" ali pa "new in" ali pa recimo kompletno nego, ki jo uporabljaš za lase/tuširanje/obraz... In pa če se jo to sedaj kaj spremenilo... (instagram: bojanace, fb: bojana cerovsek)
