When should you throw out your makeup? | Cosmetics shelf life & how to extend it


Let’s be honest: how often do you  maintain your cosmetics? And no, it doesn’t count that you use them on daily basis, but the date when you opened them for the first time! 78% of women have no idea that their beauty products have a shelf life so they wear makeup past its expiration date. And you don’t want to be in that group, right? Luckily for you I’m coming with this post to help you with that issue! :)

Appealing to senses: hearing, touch and taste | Marketing tricks that make us buy (Part III)

Companies want their customers to stay in the store as long as possible, so it’s very important to make us feel comfortable while shopping. The appropriate atmosphere in the store makes us more willing to spend money, and appealing to all of our senses not only makes us (customers) attached to the company, but also keeps us coming back to their stores again and again.

The senses of sight and smell are the most important for marketers, but in sensory marketing ads appeal also to 3 other senses: hearing, touch and taste... and today I’ll tell you a little bit more about them as well.

10 great ways to motivate yourself and get things done | Part I



I think all of us (or at least the vast majority) would like to achieve success in life, so we try to pursue it. Unfortunately there are often many obstacles in our way that we have to overcome and we also have bad days or moments of doubt… At such moments we need a big dose of motivation which will give us a kick to get us moving into taking action. We are all different and some stimuli will not necessarily motivate us as much, as they motivate others. That’s why I'd like to share my favourite methods for overcoming moments of laziness and show you how to get back on the right track. So, here we go! :)
