ejba was my on-line nickname for over 15 years. It was weird saying bye to it, but the time has come to bring my everyday persona into the front. I invite you to meet Gabi Nedic … person behind Gejba aka me. :D

“There is no right or wrong in makeup. Just have fun.”

40 year old woman living in pocket sized country in Europe called Slovenia doesn’t sound that bad, right? Problem is you have to add stubborn, bossy and doesn’t mind her own business to the mix. :P

I love honesty, but had to stop using the word after every single dishonest blogger out there stared using it as their shield. So scrape that one. I am dragon lady who is not afraid to share her thoughts.
Don’t believe in basing and trashing, but as somebody who tried loooots of things, I can definitively do a mean comparison. And after 20 years of studying cosmetics ingredients (thank you for that extra work my once upon a time super sensitive skin), I can share a word or two about that too.

Private life

If you asked me about my life few years ago, I would tell you that my job in family business + on-line marketing keeps me insanely busy. Today, that title goes to my 5 year old daughter, who makes sure that not only my waking ours are busy, but night time looks like something from nut house too. :P


In my case, curiosity did not kill the cat, but was major part in my obsession of trying out tons of similar products so I can see the difference. As I do not have many bad habits and I share my findings with our readers, I do not feel guilty (much) for that one tiny slip.

Holy grail makeup

My holy grails are mat lipstick that do not dry my lips out, easy to blend mat eyeshadow, perfectly formulated and colour combined face and eye palettes, interesting nail polishes that do not chip quickly and perfect very light toned and feeling foundations for my sensitive/dehydrated/normal-oily skin.

Make up is lifesaver in my book when I need to hide bags under my eyes or volcanoes growing on my face, but I do not see it as something I would die if I went out without. And you will see me without makeup quite a lot – I will not feel bad about it, how I’ll look is another thing. :D

Skin care preferences

Due to my problems with hormonal imbalances, my skin can be described only with one word – wacky.

I belong to the group of people with very sensitive skin, normal to oily type, but pretty much always dehydrated.

Less ingredients product has, more I like it. I should probably mention that I am little bit of ingredient snob. If INCI shows some of the ingredients I hate, there is almost no possibility of me testing it.

Alcohol is not on the “black list”, but I still prefer if the product contains very little of it unless formulation calls for it or is hard to skip (SPF, salicylic acid …).

Do I even have a style?

My style could be described as eclectic, boring and comfy. :D

I prefer clothes from natural materials and dyed in quality way. If you combine that with my XL size and you land in “you buy what you get” universe. My favourite brands are: Gerry Weber group (Taifun, Samoon), s.Oliver, Lebek … I know, I know – grandma style. :P

Living on a big foot

To my great misfortune, my foot stopped growing at size 42,5/43 (US women 11) in wide model. Can you thing worse fate for somebody who thing shoes are the it piece that make or brakes the outfit?

Hair care

By now you know me really well, so it will not surprise you to learn, that my hair is no exception to the rule and is making most of my days long battle to make it look at least slightly more presentable. :P

Lots and lots of soft and unruly hairs, that grow faster than the weed. Doesn’t sound terrible right? Well – add to the mix almost completely grayed out hair with high level of dehydration and you will slowly get the idea why am I campaigning for less nesty look on daily basis. m.

Only thing I can say so far about my hair is the sad fact that they have very expensive taste … 40 EUR shampoo bottle expensive. :P
