A little bit about myself – my name is Olga, I am 28 years old and I have recently rediscovered the wonderful world of cosmetics.
I used to be a very avid makeup user, but then completely fell out of that whole world for a couple of years. Along the way I managed to completely wreck my hair (hello, drugstore shampoo!), develop some skin issues (dry and dehydrated does not even begin to describe it) and fill up my closet with mostly faded jeans and heather gray hoodies.
October 26, 2012 was my 28th birthday, and the Monday after that I was about to start a new job. All this made me realize that it really is time for some major changes – time to start taking care of myself, time to start dressing like the adult, professional young woman that I am and time to start searching for the skin-, haircare and makeup to fit me best.
I spent my birthday at a spa – got a manicure (for the first time in 28 years!), got my hair done, bought some products… And from then on it has been a pretty fascinating journey. A week of back-to-back episodes of “What not to Wear” later I thought I would start this blog to share my findings, and to have a kind of “journal” that I will be able to look back on and remember how it all started.
Hope you enjoy reading!
