Monday Vlog: Signed The Papers

Dallas, Texas, Family, Lifestyle

On February 25, 2016, we finally signed all the papers on the house. AND THE HOUSE IS OFFICIALLY OURS!!!We couldn’t be more excited! We were looking for our perfect house for a while now, and this house has everything we wanted and is in the location we really wanted to live in! It does need to be updated and remodeled (we are doing it now, and we are moving in 1 week or so), which means we will love it even more 🙂

We also shopped for new appliances, and the best deals we found were at Nebraska Furniture Mart, they offer 18-30 months financing and they do price match.

I’m definitely going to do a before and after video of the house, and trust me you will want to see it!! So stay tuned for that video and subscribe either to this blog or to our family channel not to miss it!

March Currently

Dallas, Texas, Everything else, Family, Lifestyle, Thoughts

march-currently

Hi everyone, and welcome to my new series of monthly posts “Currently”. At the end of every month, I’m going to share with you what I’m up to, exciting news, obsessions etc.

So this month I have been:

Reminded of how important it is to live right here right now..at the moment, and not when the weather gets better, a house is bigger, next month, or when you have more money. I’ve been reminded of that happiness is a state of mind and doesn’t depend on the circumstances (you might think it does, but it doesn’t).

Reading articles and posts on Facebook and Google. Just news, tips on parenting, articles that catch my eyes.  I would be glad to read an actual book, but I don’t really have much time for it these days. The last book I read was “Me Before You” and it was several months ago. It’s a really great book, and I can’t wait to see the movie which is coming out in June.

Watching. Usually, Daniel and I have date (movie) nights on Saturday and Sunday after we put kids to bed. And this month we watched all 3 parts of IpMan, Joy, War Room and Deadpool. Great movies! Deadpool is my least favorite from the list! It doesn’t have a deep meaning to it, but nevertheless, it was fun to watch, it’s definitely very different movie, and if you haven’t seen it you should..as you should watch all the movies that I mentioned above 🙂

Enjoying double date night with our friends. We had a dinner at our favorite Thai restaurant, and then went to Karaoke place, came home at 2:30 am. No kids, just adults, and it felt GREAT!!! (and I don’t even feel guilty for saying this lol). We had a really great time singing Karaoke, and I would share the video with you, but it’s just too private LOL.. I posted a short 15 sec video on Instagram though. By the way, are you as excited as I am about a new Instagram update? 1 min video instead of 15 sec!!!  Continue reading “March Currently”

Drugstore Nail Polish Removers vs. ZOYA

Beauty, Reviews

zoya-nail-polish-remover-livingwithjane

I never gave a second thought to nail polish removers that I used to use. I thought they were all kind of the same, but as it turned out  not all nail polishes are made equal. I recently tried Zoya Nail Polish Remover, and it was an eye-opening experience 🙂 Seriously, I was surprised at how easy it took off my nail polish. It easily removes any nail polish, even the most glittery ones. And bonus: it doesn’t smell bad.

The 3-in-1 formula removes nail polish, nourishes nails and fortifies the nail plate for guaranteed extended polish wear. But even if the only thing it did was removing nail polish, I’d still recommend it.  Continue reading “Drugstore Nail Polish Removers vs. ZOYA”


REVIEW: Micellar Water Simple vs. Bioderma

Beauty, Reviews

Micellar waters are becoming more and more popular, especially in Europe (for some reason). Here is just a short review of two micellar water that are famous here in US. One is by Simple, and another on by Bioderma.

In other words, micellar water is a cleansing water that removes makeup. It looks just a regular water..no fragrance, no foam..and the best thing you don’t have to rinse your face after using it..

Bioderma Micellar Water.

  • Great for sensitive skin
  • Comes in different sizes: 3.3 oz, 8.4 oz. 16.91 oz
  • Removes waterproof makeup
  • Removes lip stains (with a little effort, but still does the job)
  • A little hard to find in US (links to where you can find it below)

Price: 3.3 oz – $14, 8.4 oz – $17, 16.91 oz – $24

Where to find: Amazon (3.3 oz, 8.4 oz, 16.91 oz)

Simple Micellar Water.

  • You need to use a lot of this water to remove makeup
  • A little bit harsh
  • Easy to find
  • Removes waterproof makeup, but again you will need a lot of it
  • Can dry your skin

Price: $6

Where to find: Amazon

How I use it: 

I use it on lazy days when I absolutely don’t want to use cleansers and foams and wash my face. On usual days I remove my makeup with cleanser, and I use micellar water as a toner, and just to make sure that I remove all my makeup. And then I follow with a serum or cream..

Have you tried micellar water? Which one would you recommend?
