4 Gift Ideas To Ask Your Partner For This Birthday
If your birthday is coming up soon and you’re thinking about starting to drop hints to your significant other about what you might like to receive on the big day, then read on. This is a run-down of four gift ideas to ask your partner for ready for when your birthday rolls around.
With so many brands on the marketplace these days it can be really difficult - and expensive - to keep up with the latest trends. Therefore, what better birthday treat to receive than some new make-up?! Now, this can be a tricky product to expect your boyfriend or girlfriend to be able to buy confidently for you. So, if you’re determined not to ask for exactly what you’d like outright, then why not organise a spontaneous shopping trip a week or two before your birthday to help your partner scout out present ideas. You might wish to highlight the eyeshadow palette you have been longing after for weeks, or perhaps some natural beauty products you saw featured in a YouTube video?
2. A Trip Abroad
During the outbreak of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns and social distancing restrictions, nothing has felt more appealing than the promise of a trip abroad. Why not ask your partner to plan a holiday and treat you to the trip for your birthday? Most airlines and holiday package providers are offering flexible dates and refund policies at the moment to encourage people to travel again. Your partner will probably be able to get a really good rate! Having nothing to look forward to is never great for your mental health, so why not ask for this?
3. New Clothes
If your ASOS wishlist is starting to pile up but you haven’t got the cash to pay for it all, then it might be a good idea to hold off on your next haul and asking for some new clothes for your birthday. Hopefully your significant other is very familiar with your style and can be trusted to buy you something that will suit you. That said if you’re not sure that you’d like to take the risk, then there’s no harm in pointing out a few pieces that you’re fond of when you’re next out shopping - or even share your wishlist with him or her over email. I’m sure they would rather you got what you really wanted for your birthday rather than risk it and potentially waste their money.
4. Something Personal
Perhaps you aren’t much of a materialistic person or aren’t prepared to wait for a holiday and would much rather enjoy a surprise than ask for a list of specific gifts. If that sounds like you, then why not ask your partner to buy you something personal to you this birthday? It’s always nice when you can see that somebody has put lots of thought into a gift idea for you, so why not trust your other half to deliver the goods and leave yourself guessing about what your presents might be this year?
Until Next Time~

I found the eyeshadows to be very pigmented and not chalky at all. There was some fallout, but that is to be expected with any eyeshadow. Especially matte ones. For this look I stuck mostly to the pink and mauve toned shades, with a little bit of brown in the crease and transition. For mascara, I wore essence makeup Lash Princess Volume Mascara $4.99 over their Volume Boost Lash Primer $4.99 (which really does give me fuller, thicker lashes). This eyeshadow gives a nice defined look to the eye area, and makes my blue-green eyes really stand out. The lipstick is something I was testing out from another brand that I thought would look good with this look. I definitely received a lot of compliments on this look. It is kind of a goth/grunge meets modern look. By the way, the goth look is back in a big way. Dark smoky eyes with lots of liner and dark lips are really in for spring.

The history of hair extensions dates back to 3400 BC. The improvements made in these beauty products over time shows that hair extensions have come a long way. With the evolution of the beauty and fashion industries, extensions have seen many changes in quality, types, styles, volume, length, color, and manufacturing methods. While the many options means there’s something for everyone, many women understandably find themselves a bit overwhelmed when it comes to choosing the right type of hair extension.
Even though choosing hair extensions can seem a bit complex, a leading brand in this sector, ZALA, makes the process simple. The brand carries many different hair extensions types to cater to most women's needs and lifestyles. ZALA clip-in extensions are among the company's most in-demand extension types.
ZALA’s clip-in hair extensions are made from the best quality, 100% Remy human hair from top to bottom. Unlike their synthetic counterparts, extensions made of real human hair have their cuticles fully intact and blend naturally with your own hair. As such, you don’t have to worry about the tangling of the hair strands. Also, you can rest assured that the hair will stay silky and smooth even after many months of use.
Stylists always recommend Remy clip-in hair extensions because synthetic hair looks fake and is easy to spot. Synthetic extensions are precisely as they sound: they’re made of stiff plastic fibers blended together to create the illusion of human hair. But they don’t blend with your hair naturally and stick out noticeably. It is for these reasons that ZALA manufactures only real human hair clip-in extensions. You can treat Remy human hair extensions just like your natural hair. You’re free to cut, style, dye, and wash them in the same way as you would your own hair.
Clip-in human hair extensions are available in multiple color, volume, and length options. But the best part of these wefts is that you can apply them by yourself without going to a stylist. The clips attached to the wefts make the installation process quick and easy. Just clip the individual wefts to your own hair, and you’re good to go! Each piece of the clips opens and closes effortlessly.
The clips also make it easy to remove the extensions and put them back whenever you need them. Other extension types, such as tape-in and sew-in, are more complex to apply, so you have to go to your stylist to have them installed. That’s not the case with clip-ins. With a little practice, you can master the technique and apply them within 10-15 minutes.
Unlike their glue-in, tape-in, and sew-in counterparts, ZALA’s clip-in hair extensions are entirely safe for your natural hair. They’re not treated with any chemicals and don’t involve the use of special hair products, heat, adhesive, tape, or pressure during application. You simply clip them onto your hair and can unclip them instantly. As such, you can rest assured that clip-in wefts will not damage your own hair.
Clip-in human hair extensions are very low maintenance compared to most other types of extensions. They don’t require washings as frequently as synthetic hair. The wefts typically only need to be washed after every 13-18 wears. And, you’re free to wash them whenever you notice product buildup to a point where you find it challenging to manage or style the hair. Also, real human hair extensions are easy to wash. You can shampoo, condition, and brush them just like your own hair and leave them to dry naturally.
You can easily style your clip-in human hair extensions the way you want, just like your own hair. Curl, straighten, and dye them however you like — just be sure to set your heating tool to a lower setting when styling the extensions. It’s also a good idea to use some kind of heat protection spray before applying a heating tool to the wefts.
When it comes to brushing clip-in extensions, make sure to use a brush made specifically for human hair extensions. Start brushing from the ends and then gradually move to the base. Do not apply more pressure when combing your hair.
ZALA’s clip-in human hair extensions are created to last for more than six months. With proper care, they can even last for a year or longer. The life expectancy of your extensions also depends on how frequently you wear them. Make sure to take off your clip-in wefts before going to bed. By doing so, you can help to ensure they stay in great shape for a long time.

How to Find New Makeup Inspiration
Even if playing with makeup styles and products ranks number one is your list of hobbies, losing inspiration can happen to anyone. This problem has been especially prevalent during the last year with our movement so limited. You have far fewer occasions to show off your looks and the all-around stress can make even the fun parts of your day feel draining.
With all of that in mind, this article is going to share some tips on finding your makeup inspiration again. This is less about specific places to find new looks and more about reigniting your internal spark. We’re going to try out three exercises that can get you thinking in new ways.
Match a Look to Your Jewelry
Using jewelry as inspiration is a great exercise when you’re stuck in a rut, putting on the same shade of lipstick every morning. This time, before you pick up your primer, select a piece of jewelry that’s interesting to you. It could be your favorite necklace, it could be a pair of cool earrings that never seem to match anything or a meaningful amulet that evokes your spiritual side.
Now, put on your piece of jewelry, sit down in front of the mirror, and recreate the jewelry as a makeup look. Choose a color scheme that matches the tones of the chosen piece. Break out that metallic eyeshadow pallet to go with a bronze or golden bracelet. If you selected a floral piece of jewelry, maybe you can recreate the general shape of power petals as you work.
Create an Entire Outfit
If you’re feeling a little stuck on your makeup look, it’s common to feel similar about your apparel. It’s time to dig further back into your closet instead of reaching for that same piece of jeans that you’ve worn every day this week.
For this inspiration exercise, put together an outfit that feels like a more idealized version of yourself. Put on the wild shoes that you love but feel like they’re “too much” or grab your favorite t-shirt that has too many holes to be seen in public. If your wardrobe isn’t fitting your dream look, take matters into your own hands and design a totally unique hat that nobody else could possibly own.
Now that you’re in dressup mode, see what style of makeup feels like the right match. You might discover that your ideal self’s makeup routine is pretty different from your usual choices.
Look to Your Tattoos
Tattoos and makeup have a lot in common. They’re both avenues of expression, letting us decorate our skin for a day or a lifetime. In this third and final exercise, you’ll be taking a good look at your own tattoos. If you don’t have any, use your imagination and pick something bold that you might or might not ever consider in real life.
Check out those tats and see what elements could be interesting to borrow. Thick lines could be reflected in eyeliner and eyebrows. A shark tattoo or a mermaid might inspire an oceanic motif with sparkling blues and green. If there are lots of geometric shapes, see if you can play with sharply defined eyeshadow or bold cheekbones.
Creating new looks with your makeup collection can be a fun and rewarding form of self expression. If you’re feeling burnt out, don’t despair--it can happen to anybody, and these strategies are here to make you feel brand new.
