10 Warm Outfits For Winter

Hello Gorgeous! 
Welcome to my first post of 2018.

Today's topic is all about cozy and trendy winter outfits.
For a long time now I am amazed at California weather. And how people wear spring/ summer clothes all year long.
Where I live we have four very well-defined seasons. I definitely can't wear t-shirts and crop tops now.
I check in some celebrities for the mount of December and chose 10 outfits that actually can be worn in cold weather.
Here they are:

Year In Review: 2017

31 December 0 Comments
Year In Review: 2017

Believe you can and you're halfway there!

I can't believe how fast this year went by.
And it's faster and faster with every year ahead. It's from the age I know! 😄
So for the last post for this 2017 year, I am gonna write about some things that happened and I may never forget.
This post is more about me then for my readers. Something that I can lean to in the future.
Definitely, I've had better years than this. But I am a little sad that is over.
Maybe because I let things go really hard.


Review:

January to March.
The beginning of the year was hard for my whole family because my grandpa was diagnosed with cancer. When I found out about this the most stressful thing that comes to my mind was: he is not the only person in my family who suffered from this and this kind of sickness is genetically predisposed so he maybe is not the wast. Because of its condition, my grandfather has a really heavy operation surgery. It's all went good and he recovered well. 

April to July.
I passed all my exams. And finally decided to start a blog for serious. This project of mine is the only one that lasted so long for many years now (3 or 4 to be correct :D). So I am kinda proud of myself I did not give up on the first obstacle.
The best thing I can imagine doing for summer are trips to my village every weekend or so. I love going there with my grandparents and however, my grandpa was still fighting the censer he was traveling with us. ❤

August to September.
In August, unfortunately, my dad lost his job. And the fact that he is struggling with MS make finding a new job little harder. 
This month I was nominated for Liebster Award. You can read more in here.
So on I realize my first free printable binder "Pretty Little Binder: Student Edition Part 1". Part 2 is coming really soon!
The new results on my grandpa sickness were up and he was in remission. Even the doctors could not believe how fast he was recovering.

October to November.
In October I turned 22 years. This was the worst birthday I've ever had. Me and my mom fight so bad that after that I did not talk with her for a week. And for us, that's a lot!
This year Halloween I carved a pumpkin. It's was my first time ever! And it was so fun. 🎃
In November my grandpa has a new surgery because of a hernia. Caused by lifting heavy stuff soon after his first surgery. My grandfather is a proud person and does not tolerate anyone telling him what to do. Even if it is for his good health... But now he is recovering much faster than before. 

December.
On 14th this mound my beloved rabbit died at the age of 6. And although I know she could live longer. I think the shock came from the fact that she died in front of my eyes. I was horrified.
This Chrismas was good. Not so fun like before but I guess it because all the kids are now grown-ups. 
Half the family is out of the country but its good to have some with you during the holidays.
If there is a Christmas Tree everything its how is supposed to be! 🎄


Things I wanted but never did:

I did not practice my drawing.
I did not create a mobile game.
I'm not enough devoted to my work/school.
I'm not driving my car.


New year resolutions:

My family and friends to be with me. All healthy and happy as they can be!
To read more books.
I keep wanting everything I wanted before. Because I believe that when you want something so strong, it happens sooner or later.

Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

One Skin Care Product I Use That Helps Me.

23 November 1 Comments
Skin Care Product Rose Water


If you read my blog, you may already know I am not a beauty blogger. 
And that's maybe my first and last blog post about a beauty product. 
But I really like this one, so why not tell you about it?! 
It will be great if you live your opinion down below in the comments section.
I would really appreciate that!

So lets first start with that how and why I decided to start taking care of my skin.
In high school, I was not a beauty queen. I wasn't taking care of my skin at all. I did not put any makeup or cleaning products, cuz I did not care much how I look or dress. So I had some pimples and marks on my face and redness too.

But after I graduate I decided that its time to look more for my self. I am not a teenager anymore so I have to make my self-look more decent. Like a normal person. 
In the beginning, I used a Garnier product with a brush that exfoliates my skin and removed the marks who've been there for years now. It does its job but definitely takes a while (5 to 6 months). 
After I was happy with my skin I decided I don't need this product anymore and get my hands on another product.


Rose Water

I liked this product because its come from my country. In Bulgaria, we have a place called Rose Valley. The valley is famous for its rose-growing industry which have been cultivated there for centuries, and which produces about 85% of the world's rose oil.
Skin Care Product Rose Water
Click the image for more information.
I use the water to clean my skin from oils and dirt once or twice a day.
Also, it's good for pimples. After 2 or 3 treatment they become dry and peel off without scars.
My skin is more of a delicate type so it gets red and itchy very easy. When I spray some water on the problem spot it gets better within minutes.
I know there is a lot of different companies around the world that sell this kind of products. For me, the best ones are the clear ones. Without parabens.

Use:

For cleansing, relaxing, refreshing and aromatizing the facial skin and other parts of the body.

Ingredients:

A natural product obtained through steam distillation from Rosa Damascena.

For me and my skin, Rose Water is one really good inexpensive option for skin care /cleaning product. 
I'm curious if you somehow know about it and if you have tried it. 
Did you like it or not?

On-page SEO. Tips to improve blog traffic.

On-page SEO Tips to improve blog traffic

"I know how frustrating can be spending time on writing quality posts but not generating any website traffic." 


Here are some tips to help you quickly increase your overall blog traffic from search engines like Google.


◽ Page titles and meta descriptions are often the #1 on-page SEO factor. So, always start title tag with your primary keyword. Well written and unique descriptions can have a big impact on click-through rates and user experience.

◽ Use SEO-friendly URLs. Make sure your page URLs are short and keyword-rich. Google gives more weight to the first 3-5 words in your URL. So use your target keyword at the beginning of the URL and even start with it if possible. Avoid ugly URLs as it harms your blog traffic.

◽ Always wrap your title in <h1> tag and for subheading use <h2> tag. Include your target keyword in at least one subheading.

◽ Your keyword should appear in the first 100 words of the article.

◽ Blog design is the new king. These days, everyone uses their smartphone more than laptops. If your blog is not mobile-friendly Google will penalize it. Taking advantage of Accelerated Mobile Pages can help make your blog load on mobile devices faster.

◽ Images speak louder than plain text. Video and audio will also help to keep people longer. Use relevant images, videos, slide presentation, quizzes, audio versions of your content etc. Encourage discussions by asking your readers to leave comments at the end of each post.

◽ Optimize all the image files (not just crushing them into small files). Use the post title variations as the images name and include your target keyword in image Alt text.

◽ Create only high quality, user-friendly content, which is relevant and fresh, up to date. Google ranks those on its first page that which has longer content with typically over 2000 words.

◽ Who doesn’t like if their content goes viral? For that, you need to provide the option to the users to share it on social media. So, add social sharing buttons and use appealing images.

◽ Use LSI keywords in every post. LSI keywords (Latent Semantic Indexing) are keywords that are semantically related to your primary keyword. Or these are the keywords you see when you search on Google at the bottom of the page.

◽ Modifiers can help you to rank for long tail versions of your main keyword. Use modifiers to your title like "best", "review","guide","tips" etc.

So what are your thoughts on this topic? Did you find the SEO tactics mentioned here useful? Share your opinion in the comments below.
