About The Blog & Lil’ Ol’ Me

Like a lot of people, I’m an avid lover of all things beauty-related. With that being said, I’m a consumer like everyone else. This blog will be my way of sharing things that I find worthy or not worthy, as a part of your beauty regime & everyday life. My goal is to write such thorough reviews, that you don’t need to ask any extra questions. ?

Why is this blog called “Belgrade Pixie”?

Well, for 2 reasons :

  1. Belgrade – I was born & raised in the capital of Serbia, so this is like an homage to my hometown. ? ??
  2. Pixie – I’m pretty petite ( only 5’2″/157 cm) and my whole life I’ve had nicknames based on my appearance & personality ?, hence the “pixie” part. ?

Now for some things about little old me:

My line of work isn’t related to the beauty industry ?.

I live for good music, ranging from bands like Free & Fleetwood Mac (dad’s influence) to Backstreet Boys (yep, I’m that old – Am I the only one?? Yeah !), Arctic Monkeys, July Talk, Lion Babe, Charlotte OC, Banks, Ella Eyre, to Adele and Beyoncé ( aaand a lot more – I could talk about music all day long ??? ).

Hmmm what else, what else… I love to travel, learn languages (studied English, Spanish and Russian – wish to learn Italian, Portuguese & Greek in the future), love art, dancing, good food, gym enthusiast (a.k.a the torture facility). Unfortunately, I curse when I feel like it’s appropriate (stress relief ? ). Slightly on the louder side (like most people from these parts of Europe ?). When mad – I switch into “Wednesday Adams” mode. ?

Trivia:

The doctor told my parents they’re expecting a boy… Ta-da! Surprise! (Had my fingers in the wrong place during ultrasounds, I guess ?).

Named after Saint Helena (My godparents are Greeks ??).

Like a Powerpuff Girl, I’m a mix of “sugar, spice & everything nice” – Serbian ?? Bosnian ?? & Slovenian ?? ?

Unfortunately, Slavophobia and general dislike of Eastern & South-eastern Europeans are still very present, but I’ll always be proud of who I am. Balkan babe for life.? We’re not all vile, I assure you.

In life, always make the judgment of an individual solely based on their character & actions — Not their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, ethnicity, appearance, or profession. We are all the same. Just mere Earthlings. ☮️ Unless, you’re an ? but that’s OK too! ?

I love all kinds of green vegetables (yep, even broccoli) & red fruit for some reason.

Fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race – I love The Vivienne, Alyssa Edwards, Raja, Kimchi, Katya & Trixie ?.

Never actually watched GOT ( yeah, I know – ??? ) though I’ve seen that Drogo character – because Jason Momoa is perfection ? .

Not a fan of chewing gum. ?

Favorite color – purple. ? Other faves are violet & magenta. ( As if you can’t already tell from my website?).

Most importantly, I’m a goofy person, as you can already tell ? – Life’s too short not to laugh and smile! ?

That’s it! ? Feel free to snoop around, maybe you’ll find somethin’ interesting to read! ?
