Diana off Duty


We all read about the glam routines – the stunning highlighter, the boujie clothes, the brunches… Which is why I wanted to give the spotlight to the less glamorous things. Why not share about my favourite toothbrush, or my favourite razor? If these things help my daily routine in some way, then why shouldn’t I share them with the world? If it could be useful for someone, why not. I can think of a lot of these products, but because I don’t want this post to be too long, I will share only a few. I may make another one of these in the future, let me know if you would be interested in that!

I have not taken a picture of mine, because I cannot get it back to its pristine condition, and taking a photo of my used toothbrush is a little out of my comfort zone. But you have to believe me when I tell you that this is amazing. I can honestly tell you that there is an actual difference which I can feel in the level of cleanliness of my teeth. If you pondering over switching to an electric toothbrush – do it now and trust me, you will thank me. 

I used to be a die-hard fan of men’s razors. I would’ve sworn they worked better! However, in the past year I have used only the Riviera razors and there is huge difference. I feel like my leg hair grows at a slower rate, my skin feels su-u-per smooth, because of the two gel bits surrounding the 3 super sharp blades. And the head of the razor is mobile, which gives the best control and I don’t ever have those pesky 3 hairs on my knee anymore.

You can see, I don’t only have one, but I have two. I am genuinely scared I will be left without this, so I buy backups on the regular (usually when they are on sale at the drugstore) The beauty finish one is my newest addition and I can say it has a really gentle scent (like any Dove stick does), but this one is even gentler. It’s amazing. However, I would not recommend it if you sweat a lot, it is not that strong. I personally don’t, so it’s no biggie for me.


When I started using the bigger cotton rounds, I honestly felt being reborn. I cannot explain how much easier and faster it is for me to take off my makeup with the bigger rounds. First and foremost you need 1, maximum 2 rounds to take off a full face of makeup. And they are also easier to store, if you don’t have space for those cute jars. I don’t, so having packs of 120 cotton rounds is just inconvenient and doesn’t fit my aesthetic, really. The maxi cotton rounds come in smaller packets, but you use them just as much time, because you only need one a day.

I know that many people talk about Batiste, but I feel like they have been a little in the background lately, so I want to give them the spotlight a little, and especially the Original scent. Because I am basically a slave to my red hair (if you have ever dyed your hair red, you know what I mean) I am trying to shampoo my hair as least as possible. I always get a whiff of it and it is just such a nice, clean scent. 

nivea intimo wash review

The one I have in the picture here is just so tiny that it is smaller than the lip butter (which I have praised in previous posts, so I don’t think you need that again). This is just the basic Nivea face cream, which many people compare to La Mer in scent and thickness. I got this tiny baby as a sample by a girl at the drugstore and I have kind of fallen in love as I haven’t used it for a few years. It is quite heavy for a day cream, but it is perfect for a night cream. It leaves your skin super plump and happy. I would feel better without the scent, but i can’t feel it after a few minutes of the application. 

We are heading.. well, south. I don’t often see bloggers talk about intimate hygiene, I believe mainly because it is intimate , but who cares. We all need to take care of our vaginas. There are some people who prefer using only water, but I do enjoy gentle washes. You feel… cleaner. This one doesn’t have much scent to it and it super gentle. Love it. по-чиста.Този на Nivea няма силна миризма и е супер нежен.

Finishing off on a high note with the taboo topics. I used to be a major pads person until I met Lidiya (get used to seeing her name a lot, I’ve learnt some of the best tricks from her) and she introduced me to the Pro comfort tampons by O.B. They are super easy to use, super absorbent, I have never had any leaking with them. I once bought the O.B. Original, because there were none of these, and let me tell you, they were not as good.

  5. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
