Thirteen Thoughts is a beauty and lifestyle blog. I started this blog when I was struggling with depression and picked up photography as a hobby and a way to keep myself busy.

While Thirteen Thoughts started as a beauty blog, over the last couple of years it’s become a space where I share a lot more than some of my beauty favorites. As I grew and got into self-help and personal development, changed my lifestyle and pretty much transformed my life, Thirteen Thoughts has grown with me.

In addition to sharing my love for some of my favorite makeup and skincare products, I also share photography and blogging tips as well as some advice for self-love, personal growth, and happiness.



I’m 28, moved to the US at the age of 15.

I was born and raised in Poland.

I was lucky to have met my soul mate almost 13 years ago, we’ve been married for over 5 years now.

I am OBSESSED with Harry Potter, like, REALLY obsessed, I listen to HP audiobooks almost daily.

I am a big sister to two wonderful human beings, Monika and Wiktor.

I am a dog person and am afraid of cats (childhood trauma- long story- but I do think kittens are super cute though).

Writing and photography are things I’m incredibly passionate about.

I live in Jersey- huge NY Giants fan (my beloved 10-year old AmStaff is named “Blu” after our team).

I’m also a huge dork and embrace that to a full extent.

I started my first blog when I was 12 and yes, I had a dial-up internet connection back then.

This little corner of the Internet isn’t just mine, it’s yours, too. My goal here is to help you feel more confident, happy and love yourself as much as possible. Remember that you are meant to have an AMAZING life. 

I LOVE hearing from you guys. If you have a question, need any kind of advice, or just want to say “Hello”, you can get in touch with me via email (paula[@]thirteenthoughts.com).
